Does God get any credit from Cuomo?

Many Democrats are bothered by the fact that their presumptive nominee for President is the old, white male that they have said only Republicans elect. But if you break that number down by race, you may be surprised by what you find. (Or not.)

Andrew Cuomo, governor of the state of New York, is pretty confident that the people have brought down the number of COVID-19 infections, and that God had no part in that. Interesting to hear coming from a Roman Catholic.

And a listener gives her thoughts about what she misses, is thankful for, and is sick and tired of during this pandemic.

Grieving during coronavirus isOK

I would not want to be any sort of political leader at this time. The potentially life-or-death decisions they have to make, with imperfect models and a virus we knew nothing about, have to be incredibly stress-inducing. I can’t blame them for incorrect decisions in those circumstances.

It’s healthy to grieve for what we’ve lost during the pandemic. And it’s wrong to disparage someone who does that.

Episode 288: The Death of the #MeToo Movement

#BelieveWomen…or not

The #MeToo movement had a good run, and it was a good way to let people know how prevalent sexual harassment was in our society. But it was taken over by the Left, with an assist by the media, who made it all about politics. As soon as that happened, it was all over.

What to do during self-isolation?

Are there things you have learned or enjoyed or missed or lost during this isolation? Let me know in the comments below.

This time out, I talk about a few of those things myself, as well as one listener’s thoughts.

The Coronavirus Superheroes

There is plenty of bad news when it comes to the Coronavirus pandemic, but let’s not overlook or ignore the good news. Some of the statistical models are looking good, but I’m not talking about that.

There are people who are fighting on the front lines to stop this. There are others making sure that you can continue living your life even as you are sheltering in place. And puppies are being adopted.

In this episode, I talk about some of the good that is happening all around us.

Coronavirus: don’t panic, be prepared

The Coronavirus (COVID-19) is making news all over the world. But what should you do about it (other than keeping those hands washed)? If the worst happens (but I don’t think it will (but I’m no expert)), prepare but don’t panic.

Next stop on the slippery slope

“Just because same-sex marriage is legal doesn’t mean that other changes will be made, like polygamy!” That’s what they told us. And yet we keep slipping down that slope.

Democrats say the dardest things! Sometimes they’re funny and sometimes, well, let’s just say they’d never let a Republican get away with saying that.
