Well…after the stirring and devastating presentation by the House managers in the idiot trump’s senate trial that showed in clear and ugly detail how idiot boy and his minions blackmailed Ukraine and then covered it up through preventing the House investigators from getting the witnesses who were in the room when these crimes were committed…and if you didn’t watch any of it, you DO need to go out and find Adam Schiff’s closing argument where he made it clear that the stakes in this trial are nothing less than the survival of our country….and that the repubs are all co-conspirators to this coverup since they will not look at the evidence and are going to acquit trump no matter what the truth is. And today, trump’s minions started their lie filled propaganda presentation in the senate, going back to the debunked conspiracy theories and completely ignoring the obstruction of congress charges that there is no defense from…instead pushing the lie that the president can do whatever he wants with foreign aid even though the GAO has said that trump and his cronies broke the law by withholding the Ukraine aid. So, should you watch this travesty? Either this or fox news, it’s all the same….
Well….just finished up riding the bike and when I came upstairs and took a look at my feeders, there were 5 sparrows on the round feeder! They haven’t figured out the one on the window yet but at least they’ve found one of them…that is pretty damn cool…I’m smiling…
Well…that was a little better…still coughing some but I did sleep through until almost 6 and that was so much better than Thursday night that I have hope that I have figured out why I have been feeling so miserable lately….we’ll see as the day goes by…I am starting to have some hope that this is going to be an easy winter with getting to Feb with no huge snow storms and the forecast of temps in the 30′s for highs for the next week or so…and it is staying light later and later so I think I have hope for surviving another winter….after all, March is only a month away…but that means I need to get after it on the bike since I am under 200 miles for the year and need to get to 600 by April…didn’t get much done yesterday but build some stuff and get a bike ride in and today looks much the same with soccer starting in a few minutes and then the 24 hours of Daytona starts in the early afternoon and I always watch as much of the first race of the year that I can…or, I nap for as much as the race as I can…at least it will give me some background noise to read by…I really should get back to working around here and finish the last room but I just haven’t been feeling it lately…I am going to clean some and cook today since I only had one meal yesterday and I have some chicken that needs to be cooked and I need to thaw some venison to make tacos again since I have tomatoes and lettuce that needs to be used…but, right now it’s coffee and news time while I wait for the first soccer match to start….more later…
Well…cripes, with the reveal of the new logo for trump’s idiotic “Space Force”, it sure seems like they have blatantly stolen the crest of “Starfleet” from the Star Trek tv shows and movies…and that makes sense given that Griftanka spent her whole career stealing designs of shoes and clothes to make cheap knock offs in China…I wonder if CBS, who owns the rights to Star Trek, is going to sue trump and his cronies for stealing their design just like trump constantly steals songs to play at his hate rallies? Didn’t anyone who was involved with this “design” ever watch Star Trek and notice the resemblance? I just can’t wait for these damn grifters to be gone….
Well….I think 5 days of waiting for birds is enough so I give up….you would think that at least one bird would have stumbled on the feeders just by accident but it doesn’t look that way….I have been watching the one that suction cups to the front window and there have been no birds as far as I can see and the piles of feed in it look just the same as when I filled it Monday….oh, well…I guess I’ll still look at them occasionally but I was really looking forward to seeing some birds there on a regular basis…I think one good thing is that I didn’t buy new feeders to try this out but just used the existing ones so I’m only out 5 bucks….I did get an airlock built at the bottom of the basement stairs today so that may help with my coughing…we’ll see tonight when I go to bed…..and I think I’ll look for a better filter/respirator for when I have work to do downstairs….have to do everything I can to keep the cough away….
Well…god, do you ever get tired of the criminal in chief continuing to abuse his power as the fake president? Or of the repubs not doing a damn thing about it? This is going to be a short one about an article that I just read where trump and his team have threatened repub senators, quote: “vote against the president, and your head will end up on a pike”…clearly a case of abuse of power and the wimpy repubs just sit there and take it…don’t they have any self respect left? Yeah, we all know the answer to that one…no…no they don’t…but if I were a senator from a co-equal branch of government and the thug in chief said that to me, it would be the last straw and I would definitely vote for the idiot’s removal…and then make sure idiot boy would pay in court for all his lawbreaking…but these guys? Nope, not a damn one of them has even commented on the threats let alone done anything about it…and this is just another reason for us to remove as many of them as we can in the fall…..damn Adam Schiff, re-open the impeachment and write up more articles…if this is not worth it, what is?
Well…that really, really sucked….the coughing is back and worse than ever and I think I finally figured out what it is…worked a bunch on the downstairs project yesterday and, even with taking hazmat like precautions, my lungs are on fire and I am completely plugged up from the sensitivity to it…so now it looks like I am going to have to wind that down since I can’t ventilate it well enough in the winter and I am just damn miserable….and the only way I could sleep last night was to use some flonase that is wearing off…and I just realized that the coughing started when the project did and that is just damn disappointing…and I didn’t sleep at all last night and I am exhausted this morning and I can’t keep that up….I hurt everywhere from the coughing and I am going to have to take some ibuprofen here in a minute…didn’t get much done yesterday except project work so I will need to do better today….didn’t even get on the bike yesterday but I will today and try to get at least 8 miles in if my lungs can take it….and I think I may wash the car if it gets to nearly 40 as forecast but we’ll see….first I need to drown myself in coffee and try to read some news…and there will be a nap in my future along with coming back here for another one a little later….more later…
Well…we’re up to three days after I filled the feeders and still no birds…and the strange thing is that I really don’t see any birds around here…you would think there would be some sparrows or chickadees in the trees but no, I haven’t seen one bird anywhere around here since I started to look for them…so maybe the feeders will be a bust and I won’t be entertained…but, that’s not the real reason I put the food out…at every house I’ve lived in I’ve had at least one feeder up and sometimes as many as four if you include the hummingbird feeder and I just like the idea of doing my little bit to help the wildlife…cripes I wouldn’t even mind having some squirrels attack the feeders…oh, well….the feed was only 5 bucks so I guess I can live with that….
Well…is it just me or has irony been murdered by the repubs during the idiot trump’s trial? Their latest talking point after the first two days of the trial is that they “haven’t heard anything new” so they need to acquit trump…yeah, I know, low hanging fruit for me…do the repub morons think the voters won’t know that the reason they haven’t “heard anything new” is the fact that they have blocked any avenue for presenting anything “new” by not allowing any documents or witnesses that would be “new” and even with the blocking, the dems have still presented a case that would have trump convicted in any other court in the land. Now, I’m tired of even thinking about how many traitors to this country are sitting repub senators so I am going to end here and make some lunch…still no damn birds….
Well…if it wasn’t clear before that Chief Justice John Roberts was just another repub partisan hack, you just have to look at his behavior as the presiding judge in the idiot trump’s impeachment trial. It is clear that the pundits who thought and opined that Roberts would be impartial and run a squeaky clean trial were just so damn wrong they should have their pundit cards revoked…what the hell is he even there for? To start, he has allowed the repub defenders of trump to lie and lie and lie all through their presentations with not one peep from Roberts…would a judge in any other court allow the defense lawyers to lie to get their client off? The amount of lies that Sekulow has told would get him disbarred if he tried that crap in a real court but Roberts just sits there like he’s waiting for the next show of a double feature and does nothing about it…and he has had two days now to hear the lies and he or his clerks should have some sort of response prepared by now…at least a damn slap on the wrist for the easily debunked lies, but no…nothing, hmmm…it kinda even seems he’s in on the coverup by letting the lies stand. Then, the one time Roberts says something it’s to bothsider the dems with an admonishment for decorum….so, the repubs can lie and personally attack every damn one of the dems but when Jerry Nadler stands up and states the fact that there is a coverup going on, Roberts freaks out like he is afraid of anyone saying it out loud even though it is the truth. Roberts is supposedly sensitive to what his legacy will be from his time on the court…but it is clear that he has blacked it with his behavior…no, that’s not strong enough…he has burned it to the ground, and then poured the blackest oil all over it, then emptied a dump truck full of coal on top of that…his only legacy will be of the partisan hack that he is and he should slink away after the trial and just shut the hell up about his bullshit about the integrity of the supreme court…he has destroyed that….
