No, The Election Date Will Not be Moved

One of the hallmarks of any dictatorship is their need to control the election and the outcome of the election.

Earlier today, you know who suggested that the upcoming election in November be moved for so called “mail-in voter fraud”. In a surprising move, members of the Republican party completely rejected the notion.

This is not the idea that comes from a democratically elected President. This idea comes from a dictator who will do anything to hold onto power.

I am utterly shocked that the Republican party finally grew a pair.

I wonder how long it will last.

Happy Thursday.

RIP Herman Cain: The Reason Why We Wear Masks

In the nearly six months since Covid-19 became the number one news headline around the world. So far the score is Covid-19-1, humanity-0.

The latest victim is businessman and former Presidential candidate Herman Cain. Some reports have pointed to his unmasked attendance at you know who’s rally in Tulsa at the end of June.

I wouldn’t wish anyone dead and I would dare wish Covid-19 on anyone.

But the doctors and the medical experts have been reiterating the same information for months. Stay home if you can. If you must go out, put on a mask at the very least. Avoid large crowds and stay at least six feet away from other people.

The facts are clear. If we are survive this virus and return to a state of semi-normalcy, we MUST listen to the experts. We cannot and should be so foolish to think that we are not at risk of becoming sick from Covid-19. Anyone who does so put their lives and the lives of their loved ones at risk.

RIP Mr. Cain. Perhaps we will finally learn from our mistakes.

P.S. Does anyone else believe that it is karma that Louie Gohmert refused to wear a mask and tested positive for the virus?

Throwback Thursday: Desperate Romantics (2009)

Art is forever changing. For every artist that creates work based on the standard of the era, there are other artists who are willing to take risks and try something new.

Desperate Romantics was a television miniseries that aired back in 2009. Starring Aidan Turner (Poldark), Amy Manson (Once Upon a Time), and Rafe Spall (Wide Sargasso Sea, a prequel to Jane Eyre), the program tells the story of the Pre-Raphaelite Brotherhood. Set in Victorian era England, the viewers follow the story of four artists who set out to create a new way of seeing the world through painting.

When I originally heard about this series, it seemed to be right up my alley. It had all of the elements of a BPD (British Period Drama) that usually grab me as a viewer pretty quickly.

But, I am sorry to say that I couldn’t get into the series. There was something about it that just didn’t click.

Do I recommend it? Not really.
