So, this column in the LA Times seems just a little bit sad. Perhaps it deserves a response.
Oh, heck no. The Trumpites next door to our pandemic getaway, who seem as devoted to the ex-president as you can get without being Q fans, just plowed our driveway without being asked and did a great job.
And? He's being neighborly. He doesn't expect anything except a thank-you.
But I can offer a standing invitation to make amends. Not with a snowplow but by recognizing the truth about the Trump administration and, more important, by working for justice for all those whom the administration harmed. Only when we work shoulder to shoulder to repair the damage of the last four years will we even begin to dig out of this storm.
So, the question becomes: Who did the Trump administration hurt? I'm not asking about hurt feelings, I'm asking about quantifiable harm? I'm happy to stand with anyone and demand redress, but first we have to define the harm. From my perspective, I can show that the Biden administration, through acts of intent or neglect, have harmed more people in two weeks than the Trump administration harmed in four years. I'm willing to be convinced otherwise, but I need specific evidence
But, in the fianl analysis, your neighbor doesn't want to make amends. He has done nothing wrong. He only plowed your driveway so that you could get into your "pandemic getaway", which happens to be net to his home. He's a nice guy, let's leave it at that.
