David Burge, known in the blogosphere as Iowahawk, puts the Supreme Court brouhaha in a nutshell on Twitter.
True words, those. We have so many issues and problems to deal with:
- a confrontational China;
- the residue of the COVID-19 pandemic;
- an economy on the rocks;
- a nation divided along political, social, economic, cultural and ideological grounds . . .
yet people are losing their minds over who will be the next Justice of the Supreme Court?
Priorities. It’s all about priorities . . . but many of our benighted citizens appear to have no idea how to pick them. Unfortunately, the same appears to apply to many of our politicians and almost all our national news media.
So much for leadership!
