The good kind of foreign collusion — anti-Trump!
Who knows what will trigger our … acquaintances these days but I am going to say it anyway: “Happy Fathers Day.” I know that too many kids growing up do not have fathers in their lives, so I suppose that makes your bloggeur “privileged.”
Guilty, as charged. It’s true, my father was never stopped and frisked. He was stopped by Madison police on some traffic beef in the shadow of the State Capitol — explaining that he only made the laws (for he was a state legislator); he didn’t always obey them. Can’t remember how that worked out for him.
We see others describing their fathers as their best friend and confidant. Mine was nothing of the sort. He was my father. An Old Testament kind of guy. The law, the boss, the chairman of the board. Quit whining or I’ll give you something to cry about. Preparing a field for spring planting, it began to sprinkle. Oldest son turns the tractor toward home and shelter. Without words, Jerome points back to the field.
Told you I was privileged.
No shows in Tulsa
All morning CNN was celebrating that Trump’s rally in Tulsa last night (06-20-2020) did not fill the arena. Now it is beginning to mention that turnout was sabotaged by what AOC gloats were “teens on TikTok,” a social media platform.
Ocasio-Cortez claimed that teens “flooded the Trump campaign w/ fake ticket reservations” and then were no-shows. Ocasio-Cortez thanked “K-Pop allies,” a term referring to fans of Korean pop music.” (Should be explained that on-line reservations tickets are free.) Ann of Althouse asks:
The [New York Times] article proceeds to discuss “K-pop stans.” … Are we talking about Americans? Or is this foreign interference in our elections?
K-pop stans have been getting increasingly involved in American politics in recent months. The word “American” suggests that we are talking about foreign citizens acting in very large numbers — colluding — to harm an American political candidate — to waste the campaign’s assets and to create confusion and embarrassment. Because the candidate is Trump, readers are going to be complacent.
No one killed by cops today!
The news media is bereft. But — 60 shot, 9 fatally, so far this weekend in Chicago — and none by police! The fatalities included a 3-year-old boy and a 13-year-old girl killed in separate shootings Saturday on the west side of Chicago. The toddler, identified as Mekay James, was struck in the back about 6:25 p.m. when someone in a blue Honda pulled behind the black SUV the boy’s 27-year-old father was driving — Chicago Sun-Times updated 06-21-2020, 7:08 am.
⇒ No Justice no Peace for Mekay James!
Lou Kowieski gets Today’s Bottom Line: “I’m glad I’m not going through life as someone who is offended by pancake syrup. That must be tough.”
Speaking of syrup, one more thing about the Old Man. He smeared fruit jam over his pancakes, dropped a tab of butter on them, covered that mess with Aunt Jemima syrup (now it can be told), and threw a spoonful of sugar on top of THAT!
( … besides sugar-bomb pancakes, that is.)
