Some of the predictions and pronouncements regarding the pandemic by our elected officials were false and others overstated. The hospital ship Comfort was mostly vacant, the temporary beds in the Javits Center were not needed, the reports on the scarcity of ventilators, masks and protective gear created an atmosphere of anxiety and unease.
After weeks of promulgating misinformation and hyperbole, our leaders have resorted to daily sermons extolling the virtues and increasing the power of government. It is time to expose their hypocrisy and dishonesty.
There is someone with the uncanny ability to detect dishonesty and deception. She is Judge Judy Scheindlin also known as Judge Judy. Many have watched her skillfully interrogate litigants to separate fact from fiction, myth from reality. She employs logic and dismisses opinion and sentiment. Her response to an emotional appeal is "I don't care what you feel, think or believe. That's not relevant".
Judge Judy is a keen observer of human behavior. Watching her interrogate litigants to determine truth or fiction is like watching a surgeon performing psychological surgery. She is obsessively focused on verifiable uncontested pertinent events and not conjecture. Armed with her command of the facts and range of human responses to investigations, she is able to detect even a modicum of intellectual dishonesty. She often takes the opportunity to edify the litigants about the nature of good citizenship: honesty, integrity, respect, and law abiding self reliant behavior.
In light of the above, I think Judge Judy Scheindlin would be a formidable candidate for the Presidency of the United States.
