Sorry I’ve been very slack lately, but over the past four days I wrote 38,000 words on Secrets. It just flowed out of me. I reviewed it today and it is really pretty good. No, scratch that; its very good. Having a hard time pulling away from it. Anyways, I hope you guys like it, when I put it out. Probably in a couple months.
The lockdowns were a mistake, in my view. I agreed with them and I fault no one who imposed them: but it is clear by now that the disease is not a super-killer. We needed do no more than a bit of social distancing and a reduction of venue capacity; maybe down to 25% at the start, and then slowly climbing as time went on. What has really driven deaths in the United States is old people and something like 40% of those deaths are in nursing homes…burdened by the orders of Democrat politicians to accept Coronavirus patients. Democrats are keeping up the lockdowns and fear mongering entirely for political reasons at this point: they are convinced it hurts Trump. Maybe it will – but always remember that they put politics in front of the good of the United States.
Meanwhile, Trump says he won’t go for a second lockdown if we get a second wave of Coronavirus. My view: this is the second wave and we’ll find out it got here in October.
The Flynn judge who is trying to act as prosecutor and judge over Flynn has been called out – and now has to explain himself to an appellate court. I believe that Sullivan will be smacked down quite firmly but it is worrisome that this is the sort of person who has been placed on the bench in the United States. This is a mockery of justice – and how many are there like him? I don’t think our Progressives realize what will happen if the broad mass starts to feel that the judiciary is partisan.
An idea has been put out there that no Blue State should be bailed out unless they agree to allow their Red areas to secede and form new States. This idea has merit, in my view.
With some luck, the USA will returned to manned space missions next week. I hope it works and part of why I’m voting Trump in 2020 is that he seems to understand that the United Stats needs to do the big things…that NASA is supposed to get us to Mars, no try to burnish the thin scientific achievements of Islam. A vote for Biden means a return to doing nothing in space…a vote for Trump means we go back to the Moon and go on to Mars.
