Our biggest worry: Russia, Trump or Islamic terrorists?

That Special Counsel, Robert Mueller, who was appointed to investigate Russian interference in the 2016 election, decided that was not enough of a challenge for him and the hundred top notch lawyers he is hiring. He will assign a couple of them to count the number of votes cast from Moscow, which may take a week or so.

The rest of them will investigate President Trump, the entire Trump family (which he suspects is equal to the Gambino crime family), and everyone who has done business with them in the last fifty years. According to an anonymous source, this investigation is scheduled to continue until late November 2020. The New York Times will provide updates on the investigation as warranted, likely each day on the front page.

In New York City, the Arts Council (or similar outfit) decided to put on a free Shakespeare play, Julius Caesar, daily in a park.  But the guy in charge figured out that no more than a dozen people would ever want to sit outside in the summer heat and humidity to watch a bunch of actors speaking Shakespearean English. You see, everybody in New York who understands Shakespearean English would insist on paying hundreds of dollars to sit in an air-conditioned theater.

So in desperation, they decided that instead of Julius Caesar, the low grade masses would much prefer watching Brutus attack President Trump while he yelled, “Not that I loved Trump less, but that I loved Washington more.” Then Antony, who looks remarkably like Senator Chuck Schumer, adds, “I come to bury Trump, not to praise him.”

Meanwhile MSNBC broadcast a 2-hour show about President Nixon being forced to resign after the break-in at the Watergate. Maybe it was just me, but it seemed that once in a while when Nixon was talking, subtly and for a faction of a second, Nixon’s image was replaced by Trump.

The worst news this week was the attempted assassination of about twenty Republican Congressmen during practice for a charity baseball game. The mass killing was prevented by two Capitol Police who were there to protect Congressman Steve Scalise. Oddly, Scalise was the only Congressman seriously injured among the five people who were shot.

Another Islamic terrorist attack in London tonight. It appears the attackers wanted to kill other Muslims leaving a mosque because those worshipers were too moderate. Frustrating. It seems the only solution for these radical Islamists is the same as it is for wild hogs: kill ‘em all.

Historic quote by Will Rogers:

“Russia don’t do as much harm to the rest of the world as she just worries ‘em. She just loves to put a thumb in the soup and let the guests see it’s in there. The whole world’s nerves are jumpy anyhow.” DT #1504, May 19, 1931
