It’s all about the money….

Well..in case anyone thinks that moscow mitch has grown a conscience over the past week by criticizing trump and his incitement of treason, just don’t…the only reason that mitch is saying one word is that the big donors who were just fine with trump until the capital attack have started to tell him that the money taps are going to be turned off for every one of the traitors who tried to overturn the election by objecting to certifying the EC votes…and that means 10 repub senators could lose in the next election and that would keep mitch out of power as he is now and he just can’t take that….so, the noise that mitch might allow the repubs in the senate to vote to convict trump is all about the cash and is not in any way related to a change of heart or doing the right thing…it’s just another one of mitch’s calculations of what is best for mitch….nothing more…

A few thoughts…

Well…have a few things I want to talk about but don’t have the motivation to do a whole one of these on the topics…so, it’s shorty time again…poor Mike Lindell, (aka the my pillow guy)…after spending a couple of months scheming with trump and his cronies to steal the election, the fallout has started…Bed Bath and Beyond and Kohl’s have decided they want nothing to do with an un American moron so they are dropping his pillows and other stuff from their stores…and he is being sued by Dominion…the voting machine vendor over his lies about them stealing the election for Joe….could be he is going to lose his company…nice job, Mikey. Sad, sad trump appears to be having a trouble finding anyone to come to his “sendoff” tomorrow morning as he slinks out of DC…the invitations read that anyone invited can bring 5 plus ones….but the only people  who will be there are the ones whose reputations are already ruined by association with the idiot boy…I might just tune in just to see how sad it will be. Cripes, trump has even lost McConnell…and turtle is out with a statement today that the attack on the Capitol was trump’s fault with help from others in government…he’s looking at you, Cruz and Hawley…you have both flushed your careers down the toilet by attacking our country and it couldn’t have happened to bigger assholes….hmmm…what else? I am going to take some time off tomorrow to watch the inauguration and to see the start of the cleansing that this country needs….and to see human beings back in control of our government…can’t wait….

January 19th

Well…man, I feel like crap this morning and I think it’s from the stress from having to move…I did sleep all the way til 6:37 and had some really weird dreams late that had a gas station, my Fiat, sheep, and gamblers in it that was strange….and it had the same theme of not being able to find my car that I have quite a bit and that’s not pleasant…one good thing is that my heel has finally started to show improvement and I can walk a little better…it still hurts but it’s not the searing pain that kept me from putting any weight on it for weeks….and it’s usually worst in the morning so maybe I can go painless later in the day….didn’t get a lot done yesterday but the bike ride and I’m not sure of riding in the muck is good for me or the bike….have had to wash it down the past two days after the grit got in the idler sprockets on the shifter and started to make lots of noise and screw the shifting up…but I don’t think I’m going to ride today with the high temp of only 27 and that’s too cold for me…and I need to do the grocery run this morning…might go out to Hastings to look at a house but we’ll see….more later…

73% less misinformation…

Well…cripes..if you didn’t understand how toxic and damaging the idiot boy’s lies were, you just have to look at the study done after trump was thrown off every social media platform after the January 6th attacks that found that misinformation on the web declined by 73% as a result of that ban…yep, lies and misinformation dropped by 3/4ths just by shutting the asshole in chief up. I know that after the twitter ban, personally I felt better not having to hear about anything that idiot had to say….but we also have to realize that he wasn’t alone…millions of people retweeted the ravings and lies that came from all of this morons administration and the weak minded of them believed it all…and still support trump and his lies…so, what do we do about them? Surely not try to understand them because I don’t give a damn about anyone who stops thinking and joins a cult like trump’s that is directly against what this country  stands for…and no healing, either…every damn one of them has to be rooted out and made to pay for the damage they’ve done before we should even listen to these assholes anymore…it’s their turn to understand the damage they’ve done and they need to fix it….geez…

Less than two days…

Well…with less than two days to go until we are rid of the idiot trump, I can’t be more excited for the inauguration of normal people to be president and vice president….and on this day of service and MLK day…the difference can’t be more striking…Joe and Jill are working at a shelter in Philly while trump is holed up in the WH trying to sell pardons on his next to last day. It is going to be nice to hear the president speak and want to listen to him again since I know it won’t have any hate or stupidity in his speech….or it won’t have how great Joe is or how nothing is his fault in it either….and it will have the truth in it instead of the constant lies that trump spews…can you imagine having a press conference from the WH where the press sec actually answers questions from the press and you can assume it’s not lies again? I have been waiting 4 long years for this and it can’t come too soon…to never have to see or hear about any of the trump family except when they are perp walked to prison….that I would watch….

January 18th

Well…not sure what is going on but I used to jump out of bed when I heard and smelled the coffee maker working and got on with my day…but lately, I just roll over and try to go back to sleep…and that worked this morning and didn’t get out of bed until 7:25 and that’s why I’m running so late today…I think I slept okay but don’t feel like it right now…just have no energy and still feel like I have a cold and it’s been about a week and I am tired of it…I did get a bike ride in yesterday but it was a short one…I am going to go back out and check the trails this morning with the rain yesterday…I do need to get more miles in since I’m gaining weight like crazy even with not eating much….spent most of the day yesterday trying new searches on zillow trying to find a house and that is really depressing since I didn’t find anything….looks pretty likely that I’m going to have to rent somewhere and that is depressing, too…oh, well…not much to do today….need to keep up packing for the move and get a ride in but that is about it…too depressed to do much else but I’ll get over that….more later…

Another reason to hate trump and his minions…

Well….god, I can’t wait til these assholes are gone and trump is walked off to jail…in one last stab at the people of Michigan, trump told his minions to limit the amount of vaccine doses sent to Michigan…we have gotten 10 times less than red states and they are not even taking appointments for them until December of this year…so just because trump hates Whitmer, more Michiganders are going to die…and I could be one of them…hey Michigan repubs, what do you think about the asshole now?

January 17th

Well…running about on time for a Sunday this morning…got up at 6 and I’m finally getting myself moving after going out for the paper and having my first cup of coffee…coming back I discovered a package on my front porch that my daughter sent me…a new facemask and a couple of Under Armour hoodies that were too small for her husband but they look like they’ll fit me fine…first new clothes I’ve gotten in the past 3 years or so and they will come in handy in the spring when it warms up some and I go to a lighter thermasuit on the bike….slept okay last night but the string of no dream nights continues and that is a little disappointing…my heel appears to be getting better in small steps since I could put some weight on it when I got up today…still hurts but not nearly as much as it did so there is a little hope that it will continue to heal…I did go out to take a look at the trails yesterday and got about a mile before I decided to turn around and go back to the streets…just too icy and that makes the ride uncomfortable and I don’t want to have to work that hard….but I did get almost 10 miles in so that felt good….the work I did on the car to free up the parking brake worked and it released just fine today…and the front tire has held air since I worked on it Thursday so I guess it was just the valve that was stuck…not much to do today…need to look for houses all day along with watching Man U play at 11:30…don’t need to cook since I have leftovers that need to be used….more later….

Sliding into melancholia…

Well…with everything happening, or not happening on the house hunt, I’ve found myself sliding into melancholia today with that dead feeling that comes with it…and with it comes the need to listen to melancholy music to try to reset my semi functioning brain…it is in times like this that I’m really glad I live alone….just couldn’t give anything to anyone right now…and this time I reached back to one of my favorite albums and the first one I bought with my own money “Revolver” by the Beatles and the song “For no One”….one of my favorite songs of any Beatles song…a song about a break up where she’s getting over it and he isn’t…2 minutes and 1 second of perfection…back then I didn’t really have a clue what the song was about but I was in band at the time and it has a french horn solo in it that I just loved….I’m not sure what it is about breakup songs that speaks to me but this one and “Wasted Time” by the Eagles about a woman who is getting older and is going through another breakup and can’t believe it’s happening again….saw that one live here in GR and I will admit I shed a tear when I heard it…”you never thought you’d be alone this far down the line…”  maybe it’s that the lyric describes my own life? Normally, I’m not a country fan but I remembered a song by LeAnn Rimes called “Probably wouldn’t be this way” about a woman who lost her husband and is struggling to try to get over it that I have to include in my wallow today…in the song, her friends and family can’t figure out why she can’t move on…but I get it…there are time when you just don’t get over it…an emotional punch stays with you for years even when you know logically that it’s time, but all you hope for is the pain to just fade a little…and like today, there are times you welcome it as an old friend…and a necessary part of your sanity….okay….it’s not that dark…I just needed something different to write about today…and I am melancholy….

January 16th

Well…hey, made it all the way to 6:23 this morning but I still feel pretty crappy today…slept okay but my head was so plugged up that I couldn’t breathe through my nose at all and that causes it’s own problems that I am still feeling….but that should get better as the day goes on…didn’t get out on the bike yesterday with all of the crap that was going on but I think the trails may be clear after the rain yesterday so I’m going to head out there when it warms up enough…but that won’t be til noon or so and I am going to take an easy morning to get ready for that….they have started running old cartoons on metv on sat mornings and that is kind of cool…when I was a kid that was the thing for getting up on sat…and Popeye is on right now…gives me something to watch until soccer comes on…didn’t get anything done yesterday but I’m going to clean and pack some today…and try to figure out what to cook for the start of next week so I can take it out of the freezer and thaw it…don’t have any room in the freezer so I really don’t need to buy any protein this week…just like last week….more later…

What you never want to be….
