Things I'm Having Trouble Figuring Out

I have a lot of time on my hands these days.  It's giving me a lot of time to think.  Today, I was in a funk, and my thoughts were funky, too.

How can a woman be a Constitutional Originalist when the framers didn't consider her worthy to enjoy the same rights as they gave themselves, chief among them the right to vote?  If there's an answer, I'd love to hear it.  

How can a woman with two black children stand with a man who won't decry white supremacy?  I'm trying to imagine all the hugging and crying she talked about when the central issue is that No, honey, the President really does not care about you or your brother.... not one bit.

How sad and lonely it must be to wake up every morning and see Lindsay Graham's face in the mirror.  I am having a very hard time understanding how a man who loved and was loved by John McCain could have come to this.  

Where have Ivanka and Jared been?  I don't know why I miss her face so much, but I do.  Maybe it's because I could always let off steam with a good scream or two whenever she appeared.

Why is NBC counter-programming against Joe Biden?  How in the world is this in democracy's best interest?  And did anyone else notice that it took Dr. Fauci signing off on Trump's health status before Savannah Guthrie et al agreed to share a stage with him? 

How can Rudy Giuliani believe that anyone would leave three laptops to be repaired and then forget to pick them up?  And where has Rudy been these last few months, anyway?  

Finally, why, when I had a bang up finish for this post last night, did I get distracted and walk away, leaving the idea and the post to float away into the ether?

Sorry this is late, denizens.  As I said, I'm having trouble figuring things out.


  1. All good questions to ponder and be in a funk about.

  2. Me too (on figuring thing out.) As I saw on another blog a quote from a kindergartener, "I am exhausticated."

    1. From the mouths of babes - my daughter calls bad situations "disastrophes" and I couldn't agree more :)

  3. Good questions. I don't miss Ivanka and Jared but I do wonder and worry what they might be up to.
