GOSAR’s Turpitude {Day XCVI}

Arizona United States Congressman Paul Gosar published an animated cartoon portraying the killing of New York Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and assaulting United States President Joseph Biden.

While all Democratic representatives voted for a motion to censure Congressman Gosar, only two Republican representatives, Wyoming Congresswoman Lynn Cheney, and Illinois Congressman Adam Kinzinger voted to censure Representative Gosar. A censure is the most severe rebuke of a member of the House of Representatives, short of expulsion.

Violence could lead to real violence in the real world. Mr. Gosar needs to learn that this behavior is FLAT OUT WRONG❗❗❗

Bannon’s Court Appearance. {Day XCV}

Trump’s “on again/off again” political consultant appeared before a judge for ignoring a congressional subpoena and multiple warnings from the US Department of justice. All he had to do is “SHOW UP AND TESTIFY ” in front of a congressional committee about his involvement prior to the January 6th riots and the “storming of the United States Capitol.”

Bannon was one of the cheerleaders for the Capitol stormers. But he is scared to testify in front of a congressional committee to detail the events that led up to the violence that took place on January 6th.

Trump Atlantic City {Day XCIV}

I was thinking about Trump’s bankruptcies of his casinos in Atlantic City, and what would I do differently that the former president to make a successful run at a few casinos in AC.

I would have a “very high stakes casino,” and then put a hotel with no gambling at all, to cater to the “family crowd.” The hotel with no gambling would have all the amenities for families including child and day care, and transportation to “family friendly” venues such as zoos, museums, and playgrounds. The high stakes casino would be more expensive.

Politics❓{Day XCII}

As the title implies, I am considering having this blog be more of a “political” blog, than a “general” “personal” blog. There are pros and cons for focusing solely in the “political realm.” Maybe it is just “too early” in the life of this blog to be focused soley in the “political sphere.” Even though I was a “politics and history” major, I don’t know if I should limit my thinking or writing to what’s happening in Washington or in the nation. I do have other interests. I’ll keep my options open.

“Disloyal” {Day XCIII}

Just finished Michael Cohen’s memoir about him being the “fixer,” and attorney for Donald J. Trump.  Cohen worked in the Trump Organization prior to Trump becoming the president of the United States.  After Trump assumed office Cohen was arrested for a number of offenses he did working for the Trump Org.

The book is a cautionary tale of a CEO for a small privately held company who has authoritarian impulses to become president of a nation and compromise checks and balances and rule of law of a two hundred forty-four year old democracy.

Changes❓ {Day XCI}

I am open to changing few things about my blog.  But some things will remain the same.  What remains is the format that I will write one blog post each day.  Each day the length of each post increases by one word.

Changes I had considered include changing the title of each blog post.  I do write about a variety of topics, but you can not discern the contents of each post by looking at the title, because the title of each blog post is a serial number in Roman Numerals.

Roman Numerals {Day XC}

“Day 9️⃣0️⃣,” which brings me to an interesting crossroads in my “experiment in Roman numerals,” numbering my blog posts. My previous post, “Day 8️⃣9️⃣,” “Day LXXXIX,” which is the correct “spelling” of the Roman numeral for the number 89. The next post is this, which is simply XC, or “100 minus 10.”

There are “rules” for Roman numerals, such as “any number represented by a nine is the next number minus the last place holder.” [I may have this rule incorrect, as I am not a mathematician, nor a linguist.]

Trump’s Appeal {Day LXXXIX}

Former President Trump is suing to prevent documents relevant the January 6th storming of the United States Capitol from being reviewed by a congressional committee investigating the January 6th riots.  Trump’s goal is to delay the process as much as he can until the mid term elections of 2022, when the control of Congress will most likely switch from a slim Democratic majority to a slim Republican majority. With a Republican control of Congress, the committee to investigate the riots of January 6, 2021 will most likely be dissolved.

ABBA’s VOYAGE {Day LXXXVIII}

After two score, the musical group ABBA released their ninth studio album, “Voyage,” which I have just listened. ABBA wrote and performed these songs on their own terms, with a large portion of the folk rock that they wanted to record, not burdened by the pressure to crank out the mega hits that they churned out in the seventies. ABBA has once again, truly has “arrived.”

If I continued to write my daily blog for forty years, each blog post would be 1️⃣4️⃣,6️⃣0️⃣0️⃣ words. I’m on my way.

Day LXXXVII
