I’m not going to waste a nice summer day digging up links here, but the pronouncements / psychology / appeal of the two heads of state in many ways appear a mirror image. How much of it does each believe and how much is intended to appeal to some kind of voter base? I don’t know. Does anyone?Some pretty revealing tweets / retweets from our guy (available to anyone who can read a newspaper, perform a Google search, view PBS (or any of the mainstream news broadcasts) - or possibly do all three. The latest well publicized ones this week don’t sit well with me. Others can form their own opinion based on who they are and what they believe in.And yet, markets (on the surface anyway) largely ignore the chaos and appear currently more concerned with things like monetary policy, stimulus packages, relative valuations, earnings, corporate management, bond ratings, consumer trends, regulatory rulings, job numbers, future growth prospects, momentum, etc. than they are about governance. That could / probably will change some day.

In Des Moines, a roadside billboard declared: “Hong Kong Flu is Unamerican! Catch something made in the U.S.A.”
It was the educational version of arguing that the Civil War was about states’ rights rather than slavery — one could uphold racist practices and systems while arguing that race had nothing to do with it.

Four recent polls — including one released this week by Civis Analytics, a Democratic data firm — suggest that about 15 million to 26 million people in the United States have participated in demonstrations over the death of George Floyd and others in recent weeks. These figures would make the recent protests the largest movement in the country’s history, according to interviews with scholars and crowd-counting experts....nearly 95 percent of counties that had a protest recently are majority white, and nearly three-quarters of the counties are more than 75 percent white._______________________________________Just under 20 miles from Custer is Mount Rushmore, which President Trump plans to visit this Fourth of July weekend...(It) is the American paradox in a grid of stark geology....No country can last long without a shared narrative....to make that happen, it will take an imaginative projection of the best instincts of those four imperfect men whose visages are chiseled into stone, as well as the Sioux warrior honored just down the road....You can honor the work they started, and desperately needs to be finished, by ignoring Trump’s ahistoric histrionics this weekend and watching “Hamilton,” which is streaming to many parts of the world starting Friday. This founder was an “orphan, son of a whore,” Washington’s better half, and in the person of Lin-Manuel Miranda, he’s a face of the American tomorrow.....At the core of the musical is the founding — reimagined, re-mythologized, rough-edged. A mess of contradictions, like this nation on its 244th birthday.
