Here will be an old abusing of God’s patience and the king’s English.

The Merry Wives of Windsor, Shakespeare  

Something not talked about, mainly because SFB is being covered, is that in many locations around the country the virus is still on the up slope of the bell curve.  In many areas, including where I live, this is approaching the highest risk of infection period.  I do not want to go outside for more than picking up the newspaper and mail or a quick drive to the liquor store for more critical supplies.

   No walks right now, unless the weather is cold, wet and very windy.  I am in the high risk category for being old, having a compromised immune system, pneumonia a couple times and other issues.  Am I afraid?  No.  I am looking at risk, at the odds, at what things I can do to minimize infection with this beastie.

  We live in a very different world then we did in January.  This world is nasty.  It might not kill everyone, but it is doing serious damage to some.  Health decisions will be made now that were not on the table a month or two ago.

  We are essentially in an economic depression.  As many, or more, people are out of work and businesses shut down as during the Great Depression. The people of these United States will be making a decision about the direction of America this fall. 

Do we go to a dictatorship, the Constitution be damned? Or do we clean out the dregs of republicanism and move to a more modern form of being a republic?

  Will we be more like Finland than Russia?  There is a stark difference between them. One is almost a dictatorship, the other is run by women and is capitalistic. Do we get an FDR or a Putin?

O, what a fall was there, my countrymen!

Then I, and you, and all of us fell down,
Whilst bloody treason flourish’d over us

The Tragedy of Julius Caesar Act II Scene III

Although the beginning works to attack and destroy drumpf have been designed, it will not be by those who wish him ill that he falls.  He will by his own actions and words be taken down.  A man so mentally frail as to lash out in the manner of a petulant three year old will always be looked down on in an adult world.

I am afraid that our country will be rent apart prior to his removal from office.  When republicans (they do not deserve the respect of a capitol letter) scrap their own love of country and respect for the law to stand behind and uplift the man we can be afraid of them too.  They will follow him to the edge of a deep crevasse from which they either see the truth, or they blind themselves in idolatry and plunge America to it’s death.

Can the Democrats rally enough support to end this folly of idiocy any time before it reaches a terrible destructive climax?  I keep my faith in a handful of Republicans willing to risk ire of the child to save America from his tantrums.  These men and women are true to their beliefs and to a strong country of these United States.  Their actions are imperative to stopping a blunder, to stopping a wrong, to stopping a child who needs to be bundled in a blanket and a pacifier shoved in his mouth.

Will the Republicans and Democrats succeed?  They must, otherwise serious harm will be done to a once great country.
