Trump votes by mail

 

August 6, 2020



To The Eagle:

As I begin my 78th trip around the star we call Sol, I find it interesting to note how the closer to the November election and how Trump's numbers seem to be falling behind Mr. Biden's, the more nonsense about delaying the election and dismissing the credibility of voting by mail bubbles to the top. I would hope that I'm not the only one that notices this, although I do wonder at times. Of note, Trump votes by mail. Hmm....

Equally troubling, if not more so, is listening to certain elected officials concerned that people that are on the cusp of eviction and/or having their power turned off pontificating on how maybe someone somewhere might actually make more money on unemployment than the job they are supposed to go back to that doesn't exist. These folks are claiming to be doing the public good. Makes me wonder why our country sends even one dime, no, make that one penny, to Israel or anywhere else on the planet while our citizens are on the cusp of eviction or dying of heat stroke because their air conditioners fail to operate without power. The folks making these decisions are wealthy by all metrics used in our culture and furthermore most if not all claim to be ‘religious'! Excuse me for a moment while I laugh at the irony.

Ok, back now. Forgive me for mentioning this again, but please note that our terrified of losing the upcoming election leader, votes by mail but demonizes the process. Oh dear, I feel another ironic laugh coming on.

Enough for this week.
