The debates start…

Well….not really sure if I’m looking forward to the debates that start tonight or not…after all, Trump has tried to rig the results by…well…almost too many things to name…starting with attacking the moderator saying he shouldn’t “fact check” anything he says…to lowering the bar for his performance to just continuing to breathe…and he has had so much help from the media to do that I’m not sure if there is any possible way that Hillary can win, even though everyone knows she will. I just can’t understand how anyone in this country can think that Trump is qualified for anything…and he shows his ignorance and hatred every day every time he opens his mouth…do people think that being a loutish asshole is qualification to be president? This country continues to sink to new lows as Trump supporters have been given a pass to reveal their true selves…and with that all dignity has gone out the window…I just shake my head…geez…

September 26th

Well…it’s dark and gloomy and I feel like crap this morning and that is not the way to start the week….and I wanted to work on the car this morning but I have other things to do so that won’t happen….I am going to make some money today so maybe that will make me feel better later….and it’s raining so I can’t get on the bike until later or put the top down on the errands and that irritates the heck out of me….didn’t get anything done yesterday…didn’t even cook so that will have to happen today….the first debate is on tonight and I am not sure I am going to watch it…it might be fun to watch Trump lie his ass off and get called on it…but the bar has been set so low for Trump that if he doesn’t bite the head off a bat, he will be declared the winner…and that is just sick….okay…more coffee is needed…more later…

September 25th

Well…not much of a day yesterday…I did get the bathroom cleaned and watched sports all day…Man U looked okay for the first time this season but it looked like they quit in the second half…but, a win is a win…two days now with the pedal not coming loose so I may leave the wrench home today…but it looks like another day of waiting for the temp to come up…it’s only 52 right now so I think I won’t get out until 10 or so….and that’s okay…not feeling it right now and want to finish up the Moto GP race….I think I have to work on the car tomorrow…want to bleed the clutch to see if that is why the shifts have gotten notchy…have to grease the pins on the brakes anyway so I think I’ll just do that all tomorrow….not much to do today…need to clean the kitchen but might not….more later…

September 24th

Well….not sure how much I like the changes that are happening as we move to fall….had to put the headlights on in the car this morning and it is cool enough that I’ll have to wait for a while to get out on the bike…it’s only 53 right now and I need it to be 57 so I can go out in a t-shirt….not ready to get the sweatshirts out yet….oh, and I did win at pool…and most of the soreness is gone even with going hard yesterday…but, today will be a no sprint day and I am puzzling on what would be the best music for that…it’s usually SD but I’m not sure about today….sitting here right now watching Man U and I’m not sure why…they have stunk up the place lately but are in the lead right now so I probably should stop here and go watch it….more later….

Live recorded music….

Well…there is good news on the bike so far…after cleaning the pedal arm and re-tightening it, no slop or anything today and it stayed tight through the entire 15 miles…but, that’s not what I wanted to talk about….just had a thing for live music this morning…”Southern Man” got me started, then into “No Quarter”, then into “Nantucket Sleighride”….all of then gave me so much energy on the bike today that I think I’m going to be sore with going so hard…and the pedal arm staying tight helped that, too…I may have to make a live music playlist this weekend…I need a CCR one, too…and maybe a Doors one? Who knows?

September 23rd

Well….feeling a little slow this morning since I went out to have one with K and J before cocktail night last night….didn’t get a damn thing done yesterday and today will be the same with shooting pool this aft…I did get a nice long ride in yesterday and went hard the entire 15 miles and that felt good…did a little work on the bike to try to get the pedal arm completely fixed…the annoyance factor has dropped from a 10 to 2 so the new bolt has had some effect…it is nice to not think about that on the ride….my back has healed it seems since the pain is just a twinge now but I hurt everywhere…just low level stuff that I can deal with….not much to do today….might clean some after I get back from the ride but probably not…more later….

Trump is still a “birther”….

Well…we all know that Trump lies like he breathes, and the disavowing of his “birtherism” is just another one of them….last week, he said that he “believes” that Obama was born in the US…a whole seven seconds in a speech…but that seven seconds doesn’t erase the 6 years of constant attack on the president, the constant racist dog whistles that were lapped up by all repubs and still are…and ole Donald admitted yesterday that his abandoning of his racist birther stance was just expediency….just to get people to stop talking about it…not that he apologized to the president for his many, many slurs over the past 6 years…nope, that won’t happen since he still is a racist piece of shit who still believes all of his own lies about Obama…I think part of this is the fact that Obama has come from nothing and, through hard work and intelligence, has made a difference in the lives of many Americans and has tried to do what is right for the entire country…while Trump was given everything…never had to work for a dime of his supposed “fortune” and has done everything in his life for one person…Trump…and has hurt thousands of people as he cut his path of damage across this country….I detect some jealousy there…after all, how could any minority do better than Trump? Trump is just one pissed off little boy trying to look like a man and failing at it…and it couldn’t happen to a worse person…geez…

September 22nd

Well…I hope this morning is not as busy as yesterday…was out on the bike before 8 to beat the storms and went as hard as I could for 12 miles but I am feeling that today…my left lower back has been screaming at me since I got off the bike yesterday but I think it may be getting better…at least I hope it is…have already done the grocery run this morning and didn’t get anything since my freezer is filled and I’m not sure where I’m going to put the chicken I bought yesterday…but, how can you pass up legs at 49 cents a pound? Made another pork loin with the slow foil method yesterday and I think I’ll never make it any other way…but, I may change up the rub and go with more garlic and thyme next time…the bbq taste is cool but I think I want to try to see what else will work….I do need to get some work done around here today and it looks like I’ll have to choose between the bathroom and kitchen since I won’t do them both….or won’t do either…not too motivated but feel pretty good after being good last night….more later….

What does it take to disqualify Trump?

Well….you really need to read about the Trump foundation in the articles done by David Farenthold from the Washington Post where he reveals that the foundation is not a charity foundation at all, but a private slush fund that Trump has been using for personal gain, illegally. Payments to political organizations to go after the NY AG who is going after the fraudulent Trump University, buying portraits of himself to hang in his hotels, and to pay off lawsuits are just a few of the illegal things that Trump is still using his foundation for…now my question is…where are the IRS and FEC and why aren’t they doing their jobs to bring this criminal to justice? To show you just how crooked the Donald is, he held a golf tournament at one of his golf courses that had a hole in one contest that paid out a million dollars to anyone who got one. Well…of course Donald had to rig it….in the contact, it stated that the hole in one had to be of at least 150 yards…so what did Donald do? He made sure that the tees were at 149 yards so that he could renege on the contract if someone won….the problem was that a rich guy won and sued him for the million dollars…the suit was settled and where do you think the 150K to settle it came from? Yep, another illegal payment from the Trump Foundation…now, with the way that the media is letting Trump get away with all of his lies and fraud, I am truly starting to believe what Trump said…that he could stand on Fifth Avenue and shoot someone and people would still vote for him…what a sad state of affairs….geez…

September 21st

Well…it’s the first day of fall and I’m running late again…had to get the bike ride in before I did this since there are going to be storms most of the day and I couldn’t miss the day…felt pretty crappy this morning after meeting up with T for a couple and then with G for a couple more….I did make some cash yesterday so I now have grocery money for the next couple of weeks and that takes a load off….okay, this one is going to be short since I want to get over to Aldi’s before it rains and I need to shower…back in a few….okay…I’m back…wanted to get out and get some cheap food before the storms and I just made it….now I’m just waiting for it to start…have another part of a pork loin in the oven to cook low and slow for at least 5 hours and I started that at around 7 or so…man, have gotten a bunch of stuff done already and it’s only 9:30…I do need more coffee and to read some news so I’ll end here….more later…

What you never want to be….
