Well….if another reason was needed to reject Betsy DeVos for Ed Sec, over and above her ignorant performance in her hearings and her avowed hatred of public education, that reason came yesterday in her written responses to questions put to her by the senate….and guess what? The answers were rife with plagiarized passages and one senator went so far to say that the entire thing looked like it was just cut and pasted and had no original thought in it at all…and she used the tired old repub tricks of delaying the submission until the day before the confirmation vote so the senators don’t have time to go through it thoroughly. With all of the baggage this idiot brings, worst of all her ignorance of public education policy, there is no way that any senator from either side of the aisle should vote for her….but the repubs don’t care about the kids of this country…only power….so they’ll fall in line and vote for her money….which appears to be her only qualification…..
Well….they finally came to clean the dryer yesterday so that makes my life a lot easier today…..and they fixed the broken vent pipe so it shouldn’t fill the place up with moisture when I run it…might have to test that out today…slept okay last night but feel sore again today but I think it’s working out as the morning goes on…..looks like I won’t be on the bike in the near future with all the snow so it’s back to calorie restriction for me for now….have been doing okay lately with that so it will probably be no big deal……they are clearing the lots here now but I refuse to clean my car and move it this early….just too darn cold and I haven’t had any coffee yet….maybe later….don’t have a lot to do today but clean the bathroom so it looks like an easy one…more later….
Well…if this latest bit of news doesn’t spur huge waves of outrage, you have no feelings…the latest news from trumps’ illegal immigration crackdown is that agents doing trump’s bidding in DC put a toddler in handcuffs…yep, this regime has no dignity or sense of right or wrong..who the hell handcuffs toddlers because they are scared that they are terrorists? To compound this outrage, trump’s press secretary tried to justify this outrage by saying: “to assume that just because of someone’s age or gender or whatever that they don’t pose a threat would be wrong”….a toddler, a five year old is a threat? What kind of chickenshit bs is this? Not in our name trump….you WILL NOT handcuff toddlers in the name of protecting us from them…you are one heartless, psychopathic bastard and you need to go…anyone reading this, join the resistance, write and call your representatives and tell them that handcuffs on toddlers is unacceptable and they should start impeachment proceedings today….
Well….since we all need protection from the illegal and immoral trump regime, it is great to see that the ACLU is leading the way..filing many, many lawsuits against the unconstitutional immigration orders issued by the idiot trump….and support for the organization has exploded over the weekend with it raising over 24 million dollars online in two days…to put this in perspective, the ACLU normally raises around 4 million dollars a year online so this is an unprecedented response to the unprecedented lawlessness of trump and it makes me feel good that the ACLU has our backs in this fight…and that we have their backs, too…keep up the good fight…
Well…as part of the resistance to the trump regime, we need to stop doing business with any of the companies whose ceo’s are cozying up to trump and his minions…I don’t have a complete list yet but I will try to get one over the next few days just to make it easier for me and you to do something to hurt these assholes who think it’s perfectly fine to have a racist idiot in the white house. So, let’s start by boycotting Uber…whose ceo is one of trump’s corporate “advisors” and who took advantage of the NY taxi strike in solidarity to the protesters against trump’s racist immigration order….delete your Uber app and use Lyft instead..Lyft donated a million dollars for lawyers to protect the innocent immigrants that were illegally detained by trump and his minions….let’s make Uber pay for supporting trump….
Well…another wasted day yesterday and I didn’t get anything done….and today looks the same as I wait for the maint guys to come and work on the dryer….what a pain….and I feel a little crappy this morning with that damn low level bug I’ve had for a while now…my lungs are kind of clogged up and I am coughing some…oh, well….at least my back doesn’t hurt so I guess that’s something….didn’t get on the bike yesterday and I don’t think I will today, either….just don’t want to be cold right now and it looks like the rest of the week is going to keep me off with the snow….not going to do a whole lot today…should clean some but I feel the need to ease into the day and have more coffee…. so I will…more later….
Well…in a phone call either yesterday or today, the president of Germany, Angela Merkel, schooled the idiot trump on the Geneva conventions against torture…she actually had to explain to him what the hell they were…he is so damn ignorant and stupid that he didn’t know that they are binding on the US and can lead to the people ordering it being jailed….and, there was a not so veiled threat that Germany would lead the way in prosecuting torturers if it happens again….so, again the idiot shows just how stupid he is and we all can see how he is damaging this country and our standing in the world…and all of this in just one week….where are you, repubs? When does the impeachment start?
Well….after the vote loser trump stole the election, and the rest of the world got a look at his idiocy and mental illness, I had hoped that other heads of state would just never meet with him because nothing would be accomplished other than he would embarrass the entire country. After the president of Mexico realized that and cancelled his meeting with him, we now have a petition in the UK that has been signed by 700,000 people in just 12 hours to cancel any trump trip that might be in the future. With that many signatures, there is a requirement that the petition and the trip be debated in Parliament before trump will be allowed in the country….this has never happened to any sitting president in the history of the country and makes the US a laughingstock to the rest of the world….that is what you have done to this country repubs and you damn well own it….
Well…where the hell are you repubs? A lawless fake president is violating the constitution, breaking laws, and defying multiple court orders and not a peep out of you assholes….if Obama would have done even one of these things regarding immigration you would have had articles of impeachment delivered the same day but when trump does it, nothing but silence from you hypocrites…so we all now know that your supposed reverence for the constitution and the rule of law was just more and more damn lies….is there not one of you on the right that will do what’s right for the country just once instead of your party or yourself? It’s up to you to do your job and hold the idiot trump accountable…but, none of you will…and the country sinks….
Well…after having my son here yesterday and going through all the stats for this place, I just wanted to say thanks to all of the people that come here to read my stuff every day. Over the past month, I have had over 1500 discrete IP addresses access this site and I was a little surprised with the self-imposed two month news blackout and the resulting lack of topical posts. You’ll be seeing some changes to the site over the next month or so with my son working on putting a few ads on to try to pay some of my bills and make me an actual paid writer for the first time in my life…I hope they are not too annoying and you guys keep coming back…and, if I’m getting paid, I will have to do a better job here posting lucid comments that mean something….thanks again…
