Your Musical Patriot was busy this morning (even before light) reading up on the Republican campaign as well as the nomination of Merrick Garland to be a Supreme Court Justice.

As is common knowledge, these are some of the strangest times in anyone's memory.  Under such circumstances it takes more time to untangle all the webs, trying to separate out truth from fiction.

One thing I discovered from NBC News Online is that the Republican race is far from over.  It is often forgotten that it is the convention which ultimately chooses the candidate.  And with a substantial number of Republicans still apoplectic (rightly) over a Trump candidacy, efforts are being made to derail his nomination, chiefly through the agency of the Rules Committee at this time.  The details are a bit much to go into here, but you can read more at the NBC site.

What is important to know is that the autocratic Mr. Trump appears stoppable at this point.  I'll have more in the future.

Also, I hope to be able to give more time to other topics of importance in the near future.  This Republican disarray business has been extremely distracting, but necessary to deal with.  I hope America's time of trial and tribulation will come to a close soon.


One way to take the steam out of certain protest movements and make people feel better would be to enact a new economic stimulus program as the first one was too small.  It isn't too late to use common sense.
