Enough about religion and more

Enough about the religious preferences of politicians.

Enough about the religious preferences of judges.

Enough about the religious preferences of anyone.

I don’t care that Joe Biden is Catholic in much the same way that I don’t care Rep. Ilhan Omar is Muslim.

I don’t care that Judge Amy Coney Barrett is Catholic (and I really don’t care that she has seven children). I also don’t care that Judge Barrett celebrates her faith in ways you find questionable.

The religious preferences of any public figure is irrelevant.

Ditto, the sexual orientation of any public figure.

Ditto, his or her skin color.

And, my friends, the number of children a female public figure has is irrelevant. We also can stop talking about the clothes she chooses.

Let’s examine what matters: a person’s professional record and personal conduct.

Everything else is an attempt to score political points.

A man who cares…

A man who cares only for himself

A man who thinks he has it all

A man who roasts and who boasts

A man who will not fall

A man who has had no loss

A man who has delivered pain

A man who writes it off

A man who must win a-gain

A man who was born into money

A man who is the best

A man who writes the check

A man who can beat the test

A man like this

A man who can crush man and mouse

A man very ready

A man like this in the House

The Guardian has the details.

Across England, one in 500 people are believed to have had Covid-19 last week, with the number of daily coronavirus infections tripling in a fortnight according to the Office for National Statistics. The R (reproduction) number was put at 1.2-1.5 for England and the UK.
