Well….cripes, I’m glad I didn’t watch any of the debate last night since every story I’ve read about it today described it as at least a “shitshow” and some as a “dumpster fire inside a shitshow”…and all of that was because of the idiot trump and his attempts at bullying Biden that didn’t work at all and his generally unhinged behavior that he displayed throughout the “debate”. Yeah, I put debate in quotes because it really wasn’t one…it was trump talking over Biden and lying his ass off all night…along with telling his white power followers to get ready to attack the election and it’s aftermath…you know, trump isn’t even running against Biden anymore…he’s running against the election and his meltdown last night showed he is losing it since he knows he is going to lose…and he knows from the news reports that there are many indictments waiting for him when he is thrown out of office…and I don’t believe the bullshit that he can disrupt the election enough to stay in office…I’m getting the feeling that it’s not even going to be close so any of his shenanigans are just not going to work. If I were Joe Biden, I would tell idiot boy right now that if he pulls that bullshit in the next debate he’s walking out the door and will then do a press conference instead….and tell the world it’s because you can’t debate a toddler…and that’s who trump is….
Well…it seems that I have fallen into a pattern with my sleep over the past week or so…up at 4:30 and then back to bed until 6 or so…not sure if that is a good thing or not but at least I’m getting 5 hours or so and that is about normal for me…but that does leave me a little worn out most days but I guess that’s normal too….got a few things done yesterday along with the two bike rides but I was really looking forward to the rain allowing me to take a day off to rest my legs today…but, I don’t see any rain on the radar so my next decision is whether to get on the bike before I head out for the grocery run or to wait until I get back…it’s warm enough at 52 degrees but I just don’t have any motivation yet and getting wet at now 51 degrees is not too pleasant…so I may just drink coffee and read the news instead of rushing out there…I just cleaned the bike and really don’t want to get it mucked up again…I know I will at some point but I only have about 160 miles to go to get to my goal so maybe I’ll wait and hope for rain….not much to do today…I am going to clean some today and defrost the upstairs fridge if it rains…if not, I’m going to get two rides in and then clean….more later…
Well….this is pretty smart….just this afternoon, both Joe Biden and Kamala Harris released their 2019 tax returns and they showed that both families paid over 300,000 dollars in federal taxes, more than trump has paid in the past 20 years together. Coming just before the debate tonight, I can see Joe taunting trump with this little bit of info and I know that trump is going to fall back on the old “I can’t release my taxes since I am under audit” bullshit that has been debunked over and over but that idiot boy just repeated again over the weekend. The thing he is being audited over? Fraudulently claiming a 76 million dollar tax refund that he has been fighting in court for almost 10 years now….and the NYT stories about idiot boy’s tax returns just reinforce the fact that he has been a tax cheat all his life….and that is something that Joe needs to hit him with…that it is patriotic to pay what you owe and it isn’t to cheat on your taxes and pay less than almost everyone in the country. It appears they have some pretty sharp people in the Biden campaign…and we need to help them bring this home and restore some normalcy back to this country…vote!
Well…as a person who has always been interested in politics, debates between candidates have always been something that I looked forward to…in the past…but there is no damn way I want to see the idiot trump’s face or hear his voice ever again so I won’t be watching tonight. We all know there won’t be one lick of truth to anything the idiot is going to say anyway so why subject yourself to it? We’ve heard all of the lies and talking points for the past 4 years anyway and he is just going to regurgitate the same old bullshit and the moderator is going to let him just lie and lie and lie and treat his bleatings the same as the truth that Joe will deliver…I will be reading about it later in the evening and might comment after that but will probably not do that tonight….but, who knows?
Well…running a little late today and I just can’t get started…and my arm is sore from getting my flu shot yesterday…but, that’s pretty normal for me…the cool thing is that it didn’t cost me anything…no copay or anything and now I wait for the immunity to build for a few weeks…sure hope the flu doesn’t come around before then…just saw a poll that said that 60% of Americans won’t get a flu shot this year and I just can’t figure that out…I wonder if it has something to do with the idiot trump denigrating the CDC and trying to force a covid vaccine before it’s ready….it probably doesn’t help to have his lying toadies in charge of the health system here…okay…political stuff is supposed to be for other posts so I’ll stop that now….I did get the bathroom faucet repaired yesterday too, it is a bit of a pain to work on a house where nothing has been serviced for 40 years and getting the old cartridge out and the new one in took more hammering than I like to do on old fixtures…but, it doesn’t leak and works nice and smoothly now so I guess the work was worth it…and it only cost 16 bucks so I can live with that…it looks like I’ll be taking the gardens out in the next week or so with the temps getting down into the 30′s overnight…it a shame that I just started to get green peppers on my plants and I have so many tomatoes that haven’t ripened…but I do have a stock of jalapenos in the freezer for use over the winter so that is cool….no much to do today…only got one ride in yesterday with the rain…even got wet on the way back but today looks like it will be a two ride day…I’m in the last 200 miles and need to keep going to make it to 5K….more later…..
Well…yep, the normal repubs are out today with excuses for the idiot trump not paying and taxes for 15 years and they all are basically “rich people don’t pay taxes” and “he’s pretty smart if he can figure out how to not pay taxes”…but with the release of idiot boy’s financial records, it’s not the fact that he didn’t pay taxes but the how he did it…and that gets us to the fraud that oozes out of every page of the information. One of the ways they converted cash on hand into deductible business expenses involved Ivanka getting paid millions in “consulting fees” even though she was an employee…magically turning them into deductions that trump didn’t have to pay taxes on and even offsetting other income by just laundering them through that scam. This is not the first time Ivanka has been involved in shady fraud…there were three other times that she was inches away from being charged and then poof, the charges just went away. But not this time…the whole damn trump family is going to end up in jail…the moron son Eric has been forced to testify this week about his shady dealings with the family business and he is probably going to lie to them and end up being charged with perjury along with fraud….god, I can’t wait for these grifters who have done more to ruin this country that any family in history go to jail for a long, long time….tick tock, donnie…you’re next…
Well…yep, I hurt everywhere this morning and it kind of nice to know why for a change…but the strange thing is my arms hurt more than my legs do but they were bad during the ride with cramps so I guess that’s to be expected….I did sleep okay last night and didn’t get up at 3:54….got all the way til almost 5 and then back to sleep until after 6 so I’ll consider that a good night…it’s raining right now so I may be taking today off the bike or at least waiting til later to go….the radar shows that there are breaks in the rain coming so maybe I’ll be able to get on in at some time…that will give me the excuse to go out to depot and get a new cartridge for the bathroom sink…it is really stiff and leaks unless I leave it in exactly the right spot and that annoys the heck out of me….I may get a flu shot today too, I can get one at target for 5 bucks so I should get that done soon….it was nice not getting the flu last year but with all of the precautions we take for covid, I wonder if it’s necessary? I guess 5 bucks is not a bad cost for a little protection. Not much to do today….I think I’ll just ease into the day and have some more coffee right now before I get started…should do some more cleaning if I can’t ride…should do it anyway I guess….more later….
Well…the shit is about to hit the fan as it was just posted that the NYT has 15 years of trump’s taxes…and the first takeaway? In 2016 and 2017 the idiot boy paid only 750 dollars in taxes in each year….hmmmm…nice round numbers, and to have the exact same number for two years in a row is really fishy…and come on, I paid more taxes than that on my life insurance payout…in fact over 4 times more than the supposed billionaire paid…and I’m betting that most of you reading this paid way more in taxes than the fraud that sits in the WH. One other tidbit that came out so far is that idiot boy personally owes 300 million dollars in loans that come due in 2022 and he put up most of his property as collateral…I’m curious to see what the valuation of those properties are for those loans compared to what he valued them on his tax returns…you can pretty much be assured that they are not going to match and that is tax and banking fraud right there…and it’s in NYC so there are going to be state charges that he can’t pardon his way out of. Now we know why trump has been tweeting so psychotically all day today…the house of cards of fraud is going to be revealed this week…hey, maga assholes…trump paid less in taxes than you did….and you keep sending him money as he cheats to not pay any taxes…are you stupid or what? Get out the popcorn…
Well…in a nice surprise, my ballot for the November election came in the mail yesterday….I am a little excited about getting it filled out and dropped back off but I’m not sure where yet…there are drop boxes right over on Leonard but with the assholes that infest the repub party these days, I wouldn’t put it past them to pour gasoline in the boxes to make sure the ballots can’t be counted. So, I think I may just take a ride downtown and drop it off at the city clerks office in person so no one can screw with it. Okay…that may be hyperbole..a little…look, you have heard me plead with people to get out to vote…and with how easy Michigan has made it with dems in control of the SOS’s office, there really isn’t any reason to not vote…and if you’re here reading this…you probably hate the idiot trump with the white hot passion that I do, and there is still time to get an absentee ballot if you don’t want to vote in person…but damn, you need to vote…just in this election…just this one…this one will determine the fate of this country and everyone should do what they can to save it….and that is NOT hyperbole…please vote….
Well…this morning when I got on the bike, I looked at the computer and saw that I only had 46 miles to go to get to 4800 miles and, you know what comes next, I decided to do the 46 miles in one ride and got started…after 40 miles, my legs gave up and I hurt frickin everywhere so I cut the ride short and came home…the thing is, you would think that 40 miles would be enough and there shouldn’t be any guilt from not reaching my initial goal…but, that’s not me…I’ve been sitting here thinking if I should go back out and do another 20 to make up for it…but I’m resisting it after hobbling out to take care of the gardens and feeling the pain in my legs that is everywhere from my hips down to my feet…I guess I have to realize that I’m not young anymore..and I did do 34 miles in one ride yesterday so maybe that’s enough to make the guilt go away? It should…but who knows?
