Join Jim and Greg as they wince over the news that coronavirus mutations could make the virus up to ten times more contagious. They also hammer Joe Biden for embracing a national version of California’s AB5, which crushes opportunities for freelance work and erodes the right to work without joining labor unions. And they shake their heads as President Trump decides to dredge up a fight with Bubba Wallace and NASCAR.

First Sunday Reflections

 

Two observations this first Sunday of June 2020: the Minnesota National Guard was ready the first night of trouble, and NASCAR has fully abased itself before the lying Left.

Today, I met an officer recently retired from the Army National Guard full-time program (AGR). He recently moved to Arizona for family reasons. He grew up in Minnesota as the wrong kind of minority, Asian American. He still talks with old unit members who still serve in the Minnesota National Guard.

Professional sports started breaking free from the COVID-19 craziness this past weekend. UFC led the way, followed by a more timid, painfully politically correct NASCAR.

President Trump did a fly-by with Air Force One as the crowd waited for the beginning of the big race on Sunday, then rolled into the race track with his motorcade, stepping out of The Beast to greet the crowd and start the race, He and First Lady Melania Trump led the first warm-up lap in the presidential vehicle. The race was soon shut down, as a rainstorm came in, and will end up being run on Monday, Presidents Day.

After meeting people at the speedway and delivering brief remarks, Trump kicked off the race by announcing to the drivers: “Gentlemen, start your engines!”
