I wanted to boycott the Oscars. But I have not watched them in 30 years so it is hard to claim I boycotted now.
Month: February 2017
So as I see it, re the Oscar accident about Best Picture, “La La Land” won the popular vote and “Moonlighting” won the Electoral College.
Trump sets another trap and press falls right into it
Really, how dumb, IMHO. “CNN and other news outlets were blocked on Friday from attending an off-camera White House press briefing that other reporters were hand-picked to attend, raising alarm among media organizations and First Amendment watchdogs” from CNN. So now the MSM will talk about itself for the next 24 hours. Meanwhile the administration can advance on other agenda items with less interference.
If the MSM had any sense, they would either (1) ignore the incident (2) put ii in last paragraph in otherwise routine story about press briefing in the White House. Behavior that is ignored goes away. Instead they are crying to the heavens about this latest grievance.
Maybe they have a point, though apparently a President (or press secretary) who has press favorites is old hat. My point is that the dumb MSM walked right into another trap, and worse, do not even realize it is a trap.
I hope Chris Cuomo does not enter ladies room to teach tolerance
Not what it seems
A discussion about a presumed early warning signal for Alzheimer’s disease, from the always interesting Althouse blog (http://althouse.blogspot.com/). It is not about the disease; it is the latest attack on Trump. He rambles and riffs when speaking in public; the link leads to article about how this could be early sign. The implication: Trump is catching Alzheimer’s and should be removed from office immediately. Another sign of desparation from his opponents.
The new virtues
Modesty, acceptance, equanimity, gentleness, humility, and acceptance. Per the I Ching. I plan to work on all of these. Wish me luck!
Federal tax withheld?
If you are having federal taxes withheld, then you are not part of the #resistance.
I am so old that I remember draft card burning in the news in the 1960’s. I will know the #resistance is real when protesters start burning their W-2 forms.
A reminder to myself
to devote a lot of attention to practicing humility, equanimity, and acceptance.
Giving up for now
Per CNN, Rep. Maxine Waters (D, CA) says Trump is leading himself to his own impeachment. Real version: I have given up on impeachment effort because I cannot get any votes.
CNN running such a nonstory shows they are at bottom of barrel, but still scraping.
Lady Gaga was a rebel
At her Super Bowl halftime show. Instead of widely expected (or demanded) anti-Trump statements, she kept politics to a minimum. She rebelled against the hegemonic Left.
