Interesting article about Trumpism being really about victimhood. As others pointed out, it is also about identity politics. And I think here lies the rub: people who want that sort of politics for themselves cannot stop other groups from doing similar. And if the other groups outnumber you…
About the Democrats and 2020:
So, Sen. Warren appears to be channeling Sen. Sanders. Personally, I much prefer the approach: “here is where we are, this is where I think we can get to in a reasonable amount of time and this is how I’ve done such things in the past”, which is why Sen. Klobuchar is appealing to me.
I don’t have much patience with wild, bold promises. Still, there is one poll that shows Warren beating Biden head to head, though it is only one poll, and in many polls she is under 10 percent.
Workout notes: weights plus 2 mile walk: weight: started off bloated; after weights I was down to 188.5 (not much sweat). Walk was pleasant. Right foot: top is slightly sore.
rotator cuff, pull ups 5 sets of 10, one of 5 (went well) bench: 10 x 135, 2 x 185, incline: 10 x 135, decline: 10 x 160. standing military: 9 x 50, 10 x 45. seated, supported: 15 x 50. machine row: 3 sets of 10 x 110. weightless squats, 10 x 30 goblet (full depth toward the end). plank, headstand, crow (count of 40), knee stretches.
I wasn’t as tired as I thought that I would be; I have to remember that what I did was merely a training run intensity 13 miles…not really that much.
