Wether or not we should all come together and forgive old slights now that Joe Biden has won the presidential election is much in the news these days. I would like to add this thought to the discussion: If I get up in someone’s face and call them a bastard, it might change their opinionContinue reading “Civil Disagreement”

On The Changing Of Minds
The first thing you need in order to to change someone’s mind about something is a person with a mind that is opened to being changed. All the fighting and ugliness over the last four years closed a lot of minds to the possibility of changing. The very real, very huge threats presented by COVIDContinue reading “On The Changing Of Minds”
Stillness On The Chippewa
Heading down to the Chippewa River and watching daylight fade to dusk was a much needed respite from the last couple days of craziness and anxiety. Cycling home with the last little bit of dusk dying around me I wondered if plugging back into the world was really worth the bother.

There’re a few folks out there worried that those of us, more or less, on the left will think the fight is overContinue reading “Post Election Worries and Hawk Update”
Transfer Of Power II
As reported in Politico , Trump’s own team has been working with congress and other relevant offices to transition the office of President should Biden win the election. I do wonder what’s going to happen if everyone other than Trump acknowledges that he’s lost the election? And I do get a case of the gigglesContinue reading “Transfer Of Power II”
Not Committing To A Peaceful Transfer Of Power.
While our President’s words yesterday were awful, I don’t think we should read too much into them. Trump never commits to anything and makes dreadful comments on the daily, this is probably just more of the same. I’m also not sure if what Trump says or thinks really matters here. Current and former military brassContinue reading “Not Committing To A Peaceful Transfer Of Power.”
