It is good to know thyself, and it sounds like you do. That’s awesome. FWIW, you’ve never seemed guarded on Hubski.

I called it when he announced. He went down that escalator and started calling Mexicans rapists and I knew the populace would eat it up. They are still eating it up. Despite the polling and now, Biden’s fundraising I still think Trump is as likely to win as Biden. It will be close. I can’t stand Trump but I see Trump signs all over and I see zero Biden. I think his delusional supporters are fanatical. I just drove from MI to NC and trump has a lot of support.

I'm old enough, as you are, to remember Biden from over a decade ago. He was still flubbing sentences and putting his foot in his mouth then. I've watched him of late in interviews and I think he's fine. Is he old? Yes. Does he seem to have dementia, Alzheimers or even severe cognitive decline? I don't see that.

Anyone at his age will not have the same jump in their step that they did at 50 or even 60, but I'm convinced that the presidency is about surrounding yourself with capable people and having the ability to be deliberative. I think Biden will do that and have that. I am still holding out for Yang 2024 though :)

But down with Trump. This galvanized my disdain (as if it needed it): https://www.npr.org/sections/live-updates-protests-for-racial-justice/2020/06/28/884392576/trump-retweets-video-of-apparent-supporter-saying-white-power

I’m with you.

    It was overwhelming, like when a kid who only ever got little pieces of chocolate here or there gets his first candy bar from Grandma and finds it both amazing and too much to handle at the same time.
enjoyed your writing here.

I'm sorry you are going through this goobster. Rough stuff. As you know, the pain you feel is a testament to how much love was there.

mk is returning back to civilization today after some time frolicking in the great northern woods of Michigan. I'm sure he'll be on on it. Thx for the heads up!

Please do write the review of anything to do with the laffer curve. If you've already done so, please share. My conservative uncle keeps throwing it in my face like it's proven theory. The "gravity" of economic policy.

Then, what can be done? I’m very concerned that he is going to win another term.
