Once upon a time, the Supreme Court was asked to stop something that had already happened from happening. Yesterday, the Attorney Virtue Signaling General of Washington State asked the Federal courts to stop something from happening that already happened. It won’t work. It cannot work. But it’s something, so like a straw ban, we’re gonna do it, because it’s “something…”
Star Trek: Discovery is going to destroy Mr. Spock by making him “not entirely the Spock who has been formed enough to be the Spock that we know from TOS. There’s a lot of story about who Spock was before he becomes the Spock that is the yin-yang to Kirk… we have an opportunity to present a version of Spock that’s both totally consistent with the Spock everyone knows but very, very different.
In Tacoma, a bunch of perverts were arrested for trying to use Social Media to have sex with little kids. Of course, that’s already illegal, but there’s no Attorney Virtue Signaling General proposing injunctions to stop it. I wonder why not?
And the City of Seattle, beautiful as it is, has a homeless problem. The problem isn’t what they think that it is, but that hasn’t stopped them from threatening to fine their shelters – which they fund – for not meeting “unrealistic” (the correct term is “impossible”) goals of “exiting” people from homelessness.
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.
