Time to go, Joe



      Knowing when your job is done is hard when you have power.  Joe Biden's job in 2016 was to unite the Democrats to defeat Trump.  Job done.  Now with Trump still in the picture, Biden feels it is necessary to take Trump on again.   The situation is different now with Trump facing 91 felony charges and trials next year looming.  What if one of his felony convictions occurs and the Republicans decide they want to go with a consensus choice like Nikki Haley and the Democrats are left with an aging Biden?  Watch where Republicans go as some of the candidates drop out.  Haley will rise to the alternative to Trump. That is not the matchup that the Democrats want but might get.  How many Democrat and Republican women would vote to have the first woman president in Haley?  It would be better now to recognize that possibility and my choice for the Democrats would be Gretchen Whitmer.   How about a Whitmer/Buttigieg ticket that puts a whole different spin on the race than the Dems going with Biden.


    Of course, if it comes down to a Biden/Trump race again it is an easy choice to stay with Biden.

This week saw the significant financial impact on two corrupt organizations


      This week the financial health of both the Trump organization and the Catholic Archdiocese of Baltimore is in danger.  Ironic that two corrupt organizations faced the same situation this week.  While few people will mourn the end of the Trump business, the picture for the Archdiocese is more mixed.

     In evaluating the worth of the Catholic Church in what it does in a positive and negative light some might argue that its death would be a bad thing.  Balancing that view are those who believe that any organization that has protected pedophiles should no longer be allowed to exist.  I wonder how an organization that was created in a very different time and culture is even relevant in our current world. The Catholic Church's history has almost every element that is abhorrent to most people today.  Racism, sexism, killing, and plunder can be attributed to the Church over its history.  Protecting pedophiles is only the latest example of why this institution has lost its way in a modern way.  The Church will never acknowledge that celibate priests have led to sexual dysfunction and continue to turn people away from the Church.

     The Trump business, the Catholic Church, and the Republican Party are showing how the cancer of corruption will destroy you from within.  Good riddance to all three for a better modern world.

One normal political party and one criminal political party

   What a difference when you have a dishonest official in your political party.  Almost all Democrats are calling for Sen. Menendez to resign because of corruption and yet Republicans stand behind Rep. Sanchez, Trump, and Justice Thomas (I know justices aren't members of a political party but we know he is a Republican).  When you defend criminals and decry law enforcement agencies you show your true colors.


Menendez's problem was that he wasn't a Supreme Court Justice.  Bribes seem OK for a justice.

Small steps


     You don't have to give up meat entirely but if you do it's better. You don't have to exercise every day but if you do it's better. You don't have to lose weight and get down to your optimal weight but if you do it's better. You don't have to fill your life with kindness and fight for social justice but if you do it's better. You don't have to love your neighbor as yourself but if you do it's better. You don't have to make the world a better place because you are in it but if you do it's better.
