Today the Civil War Began

Today was a day of two settings.

The extreme right made their long anticipated move, and declared war against liberal as well as middle-of-the-road Americans.

As of today, the US Supreme Court is now illegitimate in the eyes of many.

We shall see if they — which is to say, we the people — have the backbone to fight back — in a driven, serious, relentless, and sophisticated way — to kneecap a conniving claque of black-robed, rightwing, Evangelical, judicial hacks.

The jury is out on that — for now.

Yesterday’s post suggested not being afraid to do step away from the fray in order to do your thing.

For now, that is path I am continuing on, in order to get back to physical and mental health, after a long period of decline.

Already there’s been some progress, but there is still a long way to go.

So, SCOTUS malevolence notwithstanding, I went to the nearby barrier island where I take my solo morning walks.

I decided to go the public beach area for a swim.  Did a lot of stretching and running-in-place in the sheet-of-glass ocean in clear blue waters, under the watchful eye of lifeguards.

Around lunchtime, I took my dog to what I call “The Waterfalls” area of the Florida HOA where I reside 6 months of the year.

She seemed to enjoy it, but I am looking forward to going back to New York in a week and a half, as it is getting quite hot in Florida at the moment.

Good thing my wife and I have a domicile in leafy Westchester as insurance against a civil war that seems to be inching closer by the day.

Should that day come, I assure you Sherman’s march through Georgia will seem like a cakewalk.
