Version 2.219

Well, the SCOTUS refused to hear the Trump supporters' case that challeged the election results in Pensylvania and no Justices dissented. The court did not even justify its refusal. It's amazing how quickly the wind turns in the U.S. If you get too comfortable, things will likely not go your way.

There were other funny things in the news this week: for example, Mike Pompeo griping about the elections in Venezuela having been subverted. And even the President-Elect is not being spared in the media, as his administration is being accused of not being as diverse as expected, so to quell the critics he decided to appoint more Latinos.

If someone wants to be honest about diversity, they'll take the composition of the U.S. population and set up the teams accordingly. Personally, I was a bit disappointed that Biden appointed an all-women communications team, which by the way, Trump also did. I don't like it when men put just women in charge of defending them. Plus, why not put an all-women economic policy team? That would be transformative if that were the goal you were going for.

But, thanks to Trump, people are a lot more vocal about having things change and I think that is a good thing. I like the confusion, the competition of ideas, and potential paths forward. If we've already paid the price of having Trump, we might as well, squeeze as much out of it as we can.
