Two More Reasons to Vote Him Out: the DOJ & He Knew About Covid-19

The job of President of the United States is the hardest job in the world. There are pitfalls wherever one looks. There are 1000 opinions of what he or she should do, regardless of how qualified those who share those opinions are.

I don’t know about anyone else, but it seems that since 2017, you know who has fallen into numerous pitfalls and looking worse every time he gets back up. The only other opinion he listens to (besides his own) is the most recent one he has heard.

Two recent news items have come up, adding to the list of reasons to vote him out in November.

The first is that he knew about Covid-19 in February. But instead of acting on that information, he decided that it was not worth sharing with the rest of the country. His reason is the following:

“I still like playing it down, because I don’t want to create a panic.”

Cut to nearly a year later, nearly 200,000 Americans are dead and millions are or were infected. Our economy is in the waste basket and our country is forever changed.

The second is that he is using the DOJ (Department of Justice) as his own personal lawyers. Back in the 90’s, writer, E. Jean Carroll accused you know of sexual assault. When he claimed that she is lying, she accused him of defamation. Now the DOJ has stepped up to be his personal law form. The last time I checked, the DOJ is supposed to be the country’s lawyer, not the President’s. If he is as wealthy as he says he is, he can afford to pay for representation out of his own pocket.

At the end of the day, we need a President who understands that his or her needs are second to that of the need of the country. That is not you know who.

Outlander Review

The narrative of a stranger in a strange land is one of humanities oldest stories.

Outlander (based on the books of the same name by Diana Gabaldon) premiered on Starz back in 2014. In post World War II Scotland, former British military nurse Claire Randall (Caitriona Balfe) is enjoying a second honeymoon with husband Frank (Tobias Menzies). Then somehow, she is sent back two hundred years in the past. In order to survive, she marries Jamie Fraser (Sam Heughan).

Can she return to her own time and if she can’t, what changes must she make to adapt?

I am presently about 2/3rds of the way though the first season. Though I never read the books and cannot make any comparisons to the series, I am enjoying it. It has elements of the different genres that play well together to create a story that is engaging and very entertaining.

I absolutely recommend it.

Outlander is now streaming on Netflix.
