There are a lot of things that I never thought I would see in my lifetime. The Pyramids of Giza, the Fjords of Norway, the Lights of Paris, The Mariners win a World Series, the Seattle City Council backing away from a tax so fast it’s dizzying.
For all of that, one of the most surreal things I’ve ever seen now includes the President of the United States shaking hands with the leader of North Korea.
I have no clue who Ankit Panda is, but he’s forcing me to see myself and my own biases in a mirror. Why? Well… he’s already writing (on CNN, of course) that the Trump-Kim Jong-Un summit is a complete and total failure.
The City of Seattle is running away from the Head Tax faster than a vegan who accidentally walks into a McDonalds. Why? Because at the end of the day, when socialist utopian dreams meet the hard cold asphalt of reality, something has to give. While Socialism can and usually does try to force its way, even the City Council of Seattle realized that this time they’d gone a tax too far.
The recent shooting of another African American man holding a cell phone in the dark inevitably leads to the one thing that I get in the most trouble for saying: the 2nd Amendment is not and has never been about fighting against the US Army.
It isn’t the US Army who is violating the fundamental rights of the citizen.
Even so, why exactly is it that after such a shooting there seems to be so little accountability? Is there no holding sworn officers to a higher standard? What role has the legislative process played in the problem? Is there a solution?
In the only move even more predictable than Russians expulsion of Diplomats, China, which we call Red China, has retaliated with tariffs on numerous US exports, including nuts and wine. You know… major California exports…
Kim Jung-Un was “deeply moved” by the performance of K-Pop group “Red Velvet.” Does this really change anything?
