Nothing New to Say as the Death Spiral Continues...

June 16, 2017.  10:18 PDT

While I've been working on a couple new posts for this blog over the last month, they still don't seem as relevant as the last one that I wrote about a month ago.  Wow.

So, for now, I am focusing on a series of posts on the National Monuments the Trump administration is considering eliminating over on my other blog.

Sure, the investigation is not the only thing going on in the world, and Congress has been pretty busy, actually, while the news media obsesses on the Trump Administration flailing through blunder after blunder (buh bye Dodd-Frank, grrr...), but, for now?  Well.

So, it's not that I've been neglecting this site, it's just that I don't think I have anything to say worth saying right now that is more important than my The President's Crash Dive Towards Removal from Office post.

Oh, and really?  He's on the TV announcing the roll back of President Obama's Cuba policy reforms. It's sad and pathetic.  He only gets the "wins" when he can act unilaterally, and most of those actions have been awful.  We won the Cold War with blue jeans and Beatles records (over simplified, of course, but a huge factor), and we need to do the same in Cuba.

China is as bad if not worse than Cuba.  But, you know?  They have the money and power, and, well, fuck you, Cuba.

As the President would say, "So sad.  So sad."
