Of course he plagarizes “Star Trek”

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….

I give up…

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….

More abuse of power…

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?

January 24th

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…

Three days, no birds…

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….

They haven’t heard anything “new”

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….

John Roberts blackens his legacy….

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….

January 23rd

Well….hmmm…slept all the way through til almost 5:30 this morning and didn’t cough much at all during the night so maybe the amoxicillin is starting to work? Still coughing right now so I’m not sure….but, I did sleep okay and don’t feel too bad this morning so I’ll take it…but I am a little sore from the bike ride yesterday with doing a hard 9 miles trying to burn this damn infection out so I may take the day off and just rest the lungs…but that will trigger my well developed guilt from not getting any exercise and I think that’s harder to take than getting on the bike for 45 minutes….I did get a few things done yesterday…had errands to run in the morning to restock the groceries and a little work downstairs but then I took the afternoon off to watch Man U lose again…it is pretty cool that I figured out the garage door opener adjustment and it opens every time now without stopping at about 12 inches up…it was getting damn annoying to have to use the release to open it almost every time and it really defeated the purpose of even having an opener with having to get out of the car to open it when I drove in…not much to do today…just a little work on the downstairs project and then I’ve been ordered to take it easy and heal up but we’ll see how that works…it’s just not me to do that even when I feel really crappy…feel like if I stop being active at my age that will start the downward slide that I have been keeping at bay with all of the riding….more later…

Bird watch…

Well…as I told you yesterday, I finally decided to get some bird food to fill the feeders in the front of the house yesterday and now I am on bird watch waiting for them to show up and eat some of it…I’ve even gone out and looked to see how long it can be before they find the food and found that there is a “rule of 2″ that you can go by…and that rule states: it can be two minutes, two hours, two days, or two months before you see birds at your feeder…yeah, I know, that’s a little tongue in cheek, essentially saying to have patience, that no one knows how long it takes for birds to find the food since it is basically by accident….but, that’s not good enough for me, dammit…I want to be entertained and if I went through the effort of buying the food and filling the feeders, the least the birds can do it get their butts here and eat it….oh, well…not sure if I’m going to make this a series yet but I am going to keep track of when they finally get here and that should be worth at least one more of these….

Trump just keeps digging…

Well…just thinking about what to make for lunch but read a short article that I just had to do a shorty on….this morning the idiot in chief told reporters at Davos that the House “doesn’t have the evidence” to prove he did something wrong…but then the moron continues “we have all the evidence”, I’m sure he is too stupid to realize he just admitted to the obstruction of congress charge in his impeachment…and he is bragging about it to reporters…now, this is an ad just waiting to be written and attached to every senator who is covering up for the idiot…the evidence is there and they are trying to make sure no one ever sees it…and in both Nixon’s and Clinton’s impeachment, they gave every document and allowed every witness to testify….so let’s make sure these co-conspirators pay for this attack on our democracy in the fall…and I hope they realize that new polling shows that 53% of Americans want trump convicted and removed…and that almost 80% want evidence and witnesses in the senate trial…and yet they head over the cliff for the worst excuse for a human being in the world…

What you never want to be….
