Nice to be back on the podcast airwaves after a voice-destroying bout with The Crud.
Meanwhile, the next round of skirmishes are well underway in the rapidly-warming Cold Civil War.
(Yeah, I know, in the last show I said we should ignore what's happening in Washington, but sometimes I just can't help myself.)
Just so it has a handy name, let's call the fight against the noisy opening of Trump's presidency as "The War on Trump".
How is this war shaping up? Trump is pushing his agenda, with a misstep here and there, but mostly moving forward at battle speed, with all guns blazing.
Trump's opposition appeared routed at first, but it's gathering itself and is now executing a coherent, though not necessarily winning strategy. What is it? And how have the last couple of weeks resembled the Battle of Dunkirk in World War 2 (pictured)?
Good thing there's nothing at stake, right?
Somewhere in the middle of all the action, I take a detour into the two ideological sides of the fight between what most call the Left and the Right. I call them the Voluntarists and the Compellions. Maybe not as simple, but more descriptive, as explained in the show.
