Today, I plan to ignore politics and spend my day cleaning off my desk and immediate area, which is buried in books, magazines, and papers from a non-digital world.

This can be considered a mental health day after considering how much damage is being done to law-abiding citizens.

The difference between a peaceful protest and a riot or insurrection appears to be your skin color or political affiliation.

In Philadelphia, the home of Liberty Bell, it appears that the Soros-backed prosecutor is redefining justice in terms of class and color.

Responding to the destruction of private and public property, including the looting of luxury stores, progressive communist democrat, Philadelphia District Attorney Larry Krasner has redefined the administration of justice.

"We’re going to prosecute people in an even-handed way. We’re not going to let any judge – who thinks there is a caste system, and some people get better treatment than others – we’re not going to let any judge disturb the peace of this city."

Huh? Does Krasner have his head so far up Soros’ ass that he believes that a judge who treats criminals like criminals “disturbs the peace of the city?” Or does he mean that he is afraid that he will upset the rioters, most of whom appear to be a particular minority needed by the progressive communist democrats for electoral victory?

"We’ll look carefully to see whether this is a one-off situation and they’re fundamentally law-abiding people, hold them accountable one way; or whether they are criminals, and they’re all about taking advantage of some sort of unrest for their own benefit, and they will be prosecuted another way."

Fundamentally, law-abiding people may protest, but they don’t riot, loot, and resist arrest. Translation: most of you are off the hook – even if you were caught red-handed and resisted the police. Why

Why did I work my butt off and retire, only to see my tax dollars paying off tens of thousands of dollars incurred by a black Marxist lesbian to obtain a degree in queer gender studies?

Fresh from a Supreme Court ruling that blocked the Biden administration from canceling billions of dollars in student loan debt…

We find President Joe Biden promising another $9 BILLION in student loan relief.

Our “non compos mentis” President is now comparing the Paycheck Protection Program, legitimately passed by Congress to keep millions of Americans employed during a pandemic, to the need for his unilateral student loan debt bailout.

The Biden-Harris administration announced today that an additional 125,000 Americans have been approved for $9 billion in debt relief through fixes the U.S. Department of Education has made to income-driven repayment (IDR) and Public Service Loan Forgiveness (PSLF), and granting automatic relief for borrowers with total and permanent disabilities. Today's announcement brings the total approved debt cancellation by the Biden-Harris Administration to $127 billion for nearly 3.6 million Americans.

"For years, millions of eligible borrowers were unable to access the student debt relief they qualified for, but that's all changed thanks to President Biden and this Administration's relentless efforts to fix the broken student loan system," said U.S. Secretary of Education Miguel Cardona. "The Biden-Harris administration's laser-like focus on reducing red tape, addressing past administrative failures, and putting borrowers first have now resulted in a historic $127 billion in debt relief approved for nearly 3.6 million borrowers. Today's announcement builds on everything our administration has already done to protect students from unaffordable debt, make repayment more affordable, and ensure that investments in higher education pay off for students and working families." <Source: Department of Education>

From years of architecting and implementing large-scale financial systems, I found the books always balance. That someone, either the lender (and their depositors and investors) or the borrower, pays the tab. Now, we live in an era of a third party, the American taxpayers whose involuntary contribution to their neighbors is used by the progressive communist democrats to purchase enough votes to keep them in office.

Bottom line…

My only pleasure yesterday was Marie Callender’s chicken pot pie and a slice of lemon meringue pie – and seeing Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) and Steny Hoyer (D-MD) lose their plush Capitol offices.

To say we are screwed is an understatement.
