Stop the Melodrama

I don’t want to hear what Trump is saying to grieving wives and mothers. Neither do I want to hear how some slimy Florida politician is exploiting the situation to get Twitter mentions. 

What I do want to know is why US soldiers are in Niger, why they are dying there, why requests for funding and improved communications that would help avoid such deaths have gone unanswered, and what will be done to prevent this from happening again. 

Trump doesn’t suck because his bedside manner is deficient. He sucks because he can’t govern a kitty litter box, let alone a country.

  1. “Republicans with a firm grip on the North Carolina legislature — and, until January, the governor’s seat — enacted a conservative agenda in recent years, only to have a steady stream of laws affecting voting and legislative power rejected by the courts.

    Now lawmakers have seized on a solution: change the makeup of the courts.

    Judges in state courts as of this year must identify their party affiliation on ballots, making North Carolina the first state in nearly a century to adopt partisan court elections. The General Assembly in Raleigh reduced the size of the state Court of Appeals, depriving Gov. Roy Cooper, a Democrat, of naming replacements for retiring Republicans.

    And this month, lawmakers drew new boundaries for judicial districts statewide, which critics say are meant to increase the number of Republican judges on district and superior courts and would force many African-Americans on the bench into runoffs against other incumbents.”
