It’s going to be four years of undoing the damage Cockholster did and at the end of that time they’ll still be finding new things that need undoing.

Thanks, Guardians Of Predators.

At least some of the mess created by the Previous Occupant can be cleaned up by executive order. Far too many other things can not…

Slow rebuilding. No magic wand for this.

I cannot wait until Donnie is out of sight, out of mind, out of the news, and no longer walking the earth. Is that too much to ask?

I never thought in my idealistic youth that we would be fighting these battles in 2021. My only hope is that my daughter and my grandchildren do not seem to have any of this hatred or prejudice in them - yet.

I monitor them closely - there is a lot of poison out there in the environment.

In the 1970s and 1980s, I did not foresee FOX news. The damage FOX has done to this country is dramatic.

Sounds reasonable to me.

I’m like a broken record on this, but I think it bears repeating.

Our Criminal Justice System is slow, deliberate and plodding, particuarly when the defendants are of means.

And, for a person like Trump, that is a form of cloaking that the ordinary citizen cannot imagine.

And it gives the ordinary citizen (not usually the beneficiary of slow deliberations) the impression of complete escape from accountability.

White Lives Matter.

An online livestream video depicted Black children at Roswell day care waiting to be fed as white children had already received their meals. The incident was reported by a family who saw the footage while checking on their 2-year-old child at the Kids ‘R’ Kids Roswell location, CBS News reported.

McCauley and his wife took a screenshot of what they saw and went to confront the staff to which a director allegedly told them “‘I’m not really sure because I’m not in the classroom, maybe it’s a dietary thing,’” McCauley said.

That explanation clearly was not enough or made any sense. The family then shared the story and screenshot on their social media accounts. Their post prompted immediate backlash with individuals questioning what the day care’s intention was and other parents pointing out their children in the image. As a result, Kids ‘R’ Kids President and CEO David Vinson issued a statement with a non-apology noting that the entirety of the video cannot be seen. Vinson also shared that the company would sever ties with the Roswell branch, however, did not explain why and what happened in the incident. “Perception is unfortunately reality, and with the cancel culture, unfortunately, it’s the perception," Vinson said.

So essentially, the Kids ‘R’ Kids CEO pointed to blaming “cancel culture” as the reason why they severed ties with the day care and argued in a sense that the full reality could not be known because only a part of the video was shared. But if the issue is the video not being seen completely, why did the company not share the full footage or explain what happened in the incident to counter claims that racism was being practiced?

If only there was an ointment for this issue, since his feelings are chaffing a lot of asses.

Shouldn’t it be “anti-discrimination” rules?

I just say I hope he dies.
