Thoughts for Today!

Another Bay Area heat wave.  Does it mean anything?  Depends on your point of view.  The existential meaning?  It will be warm today.

The Giants continue their race to the bottom.  In the fullness of time, i.e., this weekend, all shall be known.

In the sound and fury surrounding what athletes do or don’t do when the national anthem is played, the context for their actions is being lost.  It’s not about patriotism or respect for the flag, it’s about racial equality or the lack of it in this dear land of ours.

I am uncertain who to root for in the Republican party civil war.  If the establishment wins it is more of the same.  If the right wing challengers win it may reduce the power of the party but will increase the influence of the crazies.  Could be a lose-lose situation for the good guys, or maybe not.  Let’s hope for the best.

Will somebody please tell me what the distinction is between acceptable free speech and unacceptable hate speech.

California leads the way in a lot of what matters to people like me.  Secession sounds like a great idea.  And hooray for Jerry Brown.  He’s been a great governor.

Anyone surprised that the latest tax proposal is mostly tax cuts not tax reform?  Or that the rich benefit more than others?  Or that increasing the deficit is OK because that magical growth that will result from the cuts will bail us out?

Is it a coincidence that everywhere we look we see hurricanes, earthquakes, volcanoes, fires, floods, war, and probably a new pestilence ready to attack us?  End of Days anyone?

Have a nice day!
