War, Science, and Philosophy in a Fractured World.

Normally I’d be posting about now, but instead just a few links put together. The drive down to Iowa City took longer than expected, and I’m exhausted. What’s to say about today, the pandemic continues to explode, Trump refuses to coordinate with the incoming Biden administration about it, or anything. Only thousands, low thousands, of pro-Trump protesters took to Washington’s streets Saturday. Yes, Trump continues to claim he was cheated out of the election win. A bizarre and unprecedented event in US history, I continue my blog marathon.

11 million American cases of Covid-19, people infected with a virus that damages the brain and the heart in a large percentage of cases. It’s actually kind of odd to me that people aren’t calling for Trump to provide medical proof that neither his heart nor his brain was damaged by Covid-19. Hell of a lot more important than his tax returns.

Moving right along, Obama gave an interesting interview. In some senses the real partisan divide that splits America started under him, when the GOP decided he was the antichrist and spent 8 years obstructing him at every turn, not to mention claiming he wasn’t even a real American with their birther fantasies. And the same people who thought Obama was a secret Muslim, now believe Trump was cheated out of being reelected. It’s a continuum.

Which Obama addressed, as long as we can’t agree on even the essential facts, no debate is possible. I loathe Obama, but he’s one brilliant mofo who at least lives in the real world. I guess evil working in the real world isn’t as scary as evil living in a fantasy world. We’re kinda hosed either way.

And ultimately we all die, sooner or later everyone accomplishes that. And then, not your problem anymore! Existential angst neutralised! I just hope I live to see how this winter turns out. Trump vs reality vs Biden, both vs Covid-19! It’s epic!

Stay safe everyone. #StaytheFHome #WearaDamnMask #FelesRegula
