Quote for the Day…
People want to take your spot until they realize what it takes to play your position. – Unknown
In today’s column, I take a quick look at these people/issues:
- California Recall Election
- 60 Minutes
- September 18 Rally
- The Western Word Poll
CALIFORNIA RECALL ELECTION:
In case you missed it, the California gubernatorial recall election is today (Tuesday). Polls are showing the current Governor, Democrat Gavin Newsom, will survive the recall attempt.
The Associated Press (AP) explains how this election works:
Forty-six candidates are on the ballot to replace Newsom but it won’t matter who comes in first unless the effort to remove the first-term Democrat succeeds.
California voters are being asked these two questions: Should Newsom be removed from office, yes or no, and who should replace him? If a majority votes yes on Newsom’s removal, the candidate who gets the most votes on the second question would become governor for the final year of Newsom’s term.
But if the recall fails, the question of who would replace him would be irrelevant.
Read the full report from the AP HERE.
I highly recommend watching Sunday’s 60 Minutes (Sept. 12). The whole show was devoted to 9/11. The show was titled “60 Minutes Remembers 9.11: The FDNY.”
You can catch the show HERE. Have some tissues handy. God bless the FDNY.
SEPTEMBER 18 RALLY:
The Hill is reporting that Capitol Police and other law enforcement officials are ramping up security measures ahead of Saturday’s rally in Washington to support the pro-Trump insurrectionists who attacked the Capitol earlier in the year.
The rally is being called “Justice for J6” and you can find more information about the actual rally by clicking HERE.
Is this the day for Trump’s inauguration? 😊
THE WESTERN WORD POLL:
Last Thursday, President Joe Biden announced a six-pronged comprehensive national strategy to combat COVID-19.
You can view the President’s plan HERE.
This week’s poll question asks, “Do you agree with the President’s newest plan to combat COVID-19?”
The results will be posted later this week.
