SOTU- It’s about US.

January 29, 2018

Apparently, all the reactions to the President’s first SOTU address are already drafted. That was glaringly obvious as NYU student androids castigated the President for what he said during  the State of the Union speech…before it has happened. One even noted that he started a chant.

Wow.  Our tax dollars at work.

In the same vein, one headline says senators want him to show more compassion to Dreamers. Another notes that one of the most, if not the most, liberal SCOTUS judge will boycott the SOTU. That still might be better than napping through it.

Dreamers by the dozen will be there, supposedly to guilt the President, for what we’re not sure. Maybe for wanting to allow nearly 2 million of them a chance at citizenship?

And of course there are the usual absentee CBC suspects, but then they are seldom present in the moment anyway.

OK, then.  The rest of us can watch reruns tomorrow night.

A lot is made of what his detractors call Trump’s “lack of respect” for this or that person or group. It could be argued that he gives them exactly as much respect as they give him.

Of course there is always the chance we could learn something about his plans for the next year or two.

Admittedly, most SOTU addresses are pretty uninformative and yeah, boring.

President Trump may be a lot of things, but boring is not one of them.

For instance, maybe we’ll get a clue as to what kind of infrastructure he would like to see funded, assuming Congress can actually get around to discussing it, much less voting for funding for any of it.

In short, this is our country he’s going to be talking about.

When politicians boycott the SOTU, what they are really doing is saying they don’t care about anything more important than their own comfy little world.

When NYU or UC students regurgitate the slop they’ve been fed at home and in school, they give a broad clue that some of our enemies are already inside the wall.

At least listen to the State of the Union out of respect for the country.  It’s the only one we have.
