There is news about the Black Hole.
For the first time, scientists have done what seemed unthinkable to a phenomenon that was theoretically present: a photographic image of a massive black hole.
The Event Horizon Telescope shows a ring of orange light with a pitch-black center blurring the laws of physics. Inside, gravity is so extreme that nothing that gets in can escape.
Sounds like Washington.
A lot of sound and anger dissolving in the nation's capital and leaving virtually no discernible movement.
The media, including myself, tend to get stuck in every blinding light show. Nowadays it is hard to find a problem where a solution came out of the political darkness.
Since Donald Trump is the brightest star on the political sky, he tends to mitigate many other sources of light. The press rates him every day from sunrise to sunset (as well as on his tweets before dawn and at night).
There is so much pontification and attitude on all sides, but what comes out in the end? Immigration is just the latest example of a Battle Royale in which nothing happens. The layoffs at Homeland Security are not changing the border crisis for migrant families. Congress remains paralyzed on this issue, as with the Obama administration and the Bush administration. The president resisted a threat to close the border, declared a national emergency that remains in court, and a judge has blocked his policy of keeping asylum seekers in Mexico.
In short, it's a black hole
The same goes for all floats in healthcare. Trump announced that he would find a better substitute for ObamaCare, the Republicans were freaking out, and Trump said it did not matter, that would come after the elections. Bernie Sanders yesterday introduced a bill on Medicare for All that makes ObamaCare look like tinkering. The measure would destroy all private insurance and force everyone to adopt a government plan. There is absolutely no chance of passing.
Hide to Black.
Go through the themes and the dark picture is the same.
The President spoke of a major infrastructure boom in his state of union. Neither side has laid a plan on the table.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez promotes a Green New Deal that gives the Republicans a lush goal, but Nancy Pelosi has no plans to vote.
announced a second tax cut for the middle class in the last few weeks during the mid-season? That's gone.
The house has passed tougher background checks on rifle purchases, but the Senate does not touch it.
And the rising budget deficit? Do not even ask.
Even the endlessly covered investigations of Muller found themselves without further charges on the wall.
In this galaxy, cooperation is a weakness and a compromise is alien. Nobody wants to give the other side a victory.
