IN THE MEANTIME, young-enough President Biden, who will reach my age in about 14 years, seems to be doing fairly well with the American public — despite a conservative Supreme Court, a GOP House of Representatives, etc. Well-to-do Republicans in general are hard pressed to come up with just what Donald Trump actually gave us in the past or will do to average citizens in the future. Donald, by the way, isn’t a lot younger than Joe Biden and will hit 80 about midway through the next presidential term.
Trump is spending less time on the empty lies of his aimless pep rallies — and most of his time hiring new lawyers and stalling or insulting judges. And “Don’t say ‘gay’” Ron DeSantis is busy attacking Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck — so it is interesting whom the GOP will propose as President in 2024.
GOP Senator Mitch McConnell certainly has tons of experience that Trump can’t claim, but the age aspect has him about 83 at the time of the 2024 election. That leaves only about ex-Vice President Pence in the first line of sight for Republicans. Democrats also don’t have a lot beyond Biden. Current Vice President Kamala Harris has been almost invisible to the public, and no one else appears prominent,
My money would be on recently announced as retiring Washington state Governor Jay Inslee. But he seems to have a lack of name recognition in the East and upper Midwest. I guess a lot of it for both parties will be up to the Democrat and Republican nominating conventions,
Meanwhile, back to the children of tomorrow. Eventually and actually they will be the problem that over-populates the earth, increases global warming, depletes our forests and natural resources in general — as we continue to have proud couples boasting eight children, old guys in Congress opposing abortion, etc.
Over-population is only one of the minor reasons I oppose restrictions on voluntary abortion. The main reason is that such restrictions reduce women to the status of second-class citizens. deny them the right to make decisions involving their own bodies. I find no such amendment in the Constitution. Does life actually begin with conception — or even the 13th week in the womb? Or should we be more concerned with the impending 16-year-old mother ad/or the future of an unwanted child? Ask a doctor.
Three cheers for the few women in the South Carolina state legislature who banded together to prevent over-ride of the gubernatorial veto of a proposed law that wool have life beginning at conception and thus making any form of abortion, at any time, illegal.
