August 13th

Well…running late this morning…have been up for quite a while but just feel a little foggy that isn’t going away…it’s another one of those days when it would be easy to go back to bed but I won’t…have things to do and will get started on them here in a few minutes….slept okay last night and I wonder if my dreams are gone forever….haven’t had any in quite a while and that might be why I’m so damn tired every morning…I did get out to get some cheap bacon yesterday andĀ  charged the battery up on the car doing it…but the bacon looks like someone just took a handful and threw it into the packaging…not like the orderly slices that you normally get…it still tastes good so I guess it’s something to just be amused about….didn’t get anything else done yesterday and it looks the same today….just have no motivation so I think I’ll just drink more coffee and sit here for a while….more later…

A perjury trap?

Well…hey, the idiot trump’s apologists have rolled out the latest reason why they don’t want him to talk to Mueller and it is head-shakingly bad as you can expect from the bottom feeder attorneys that infest the WH. The latest bleating from noun, verb, 911 Rudy is that Mueller is being unethical by asking trump to sit down and testify under oath…citing that it is a “perjury trap” that Mueller will use to prosecute the liar in chief. Yeah, just on thing about that…you can only get caught in a “perjury trap” if you lie…and, by any objective measure, trump is the biggest damn liar to ever infest our government…with the count up to over 4,000 since he was installed by Putin. This is just the latest in the trial balloons that have been launched by these idiots to try to protect the idiot in chief…and this one won’t work, either….Mueller is building a case against the orange idiot that certainly doesn’t need a “perjury trap” to be effective and put trump in jail for the rest of his life….he probably doesn’t even need trump to testify….he has him on money laundering from his real estate deals and probably on tax evasion, too…so let’s just forget the hype about perjury….Mueller doesn’t need it to bring down trump and his crime family…impeach….

August 12th

Well…darn, almost forgot to come here on another Sunday morning and I am still trying to figure out why…oh, well….slept okay last night and don’t feel too badly this morning…my neck doesn’t hurt much and my back is okay, too, which is just a little weird…they have both been annoying lately and I’ll take any relief I can get….it was an okay day yesterday but I didn’t get much done with all of the sports that were on…the EPL season started this weekend so I’ll have something to watch every weekend morning until next spring now…I did cook yesterday and made some roasted cauliflower that came out great…so, I’ll do the rest of the head today along with the chicken that I brined overnight…have to remember to do that every time since it came out so tasty and juicy…not much to do today…need to get out on the bike in a few minutes and then back here to watch soccer….more later….

I told you…

Well…as you remember back when the great repub tax scam was being rammed through congress without any scoring by the CBO, I told you that the reason the repubs were using to sell it, that it would raise wages for workers, was just a blatant lie…the only thing that was going to happen was the rich were going to get much, much richer and the deficit was going to explode…I think you can guess where this is going…yep, real wages that people like you and I earn have fallen almost a half percent in the past year…and the sick thing is that people are working longer hours and their wages are still less than they were last year…so the hourly rate has dropped and people can’t even make up for it by working more hours. Every damn bit of the rise in productivity, and every damn bit of the tax cuts went to the 1%…again, while the 99% of us that have worked for a living are being left even farther behind….I don’t think this is an accident, I think this is the direct result of the repub war on workers that they have been pushing for the past 40 years and they are sitting in their congressional offices rubbing their hands with glee that they have been able to lie, cheat, and steal to reward their rich donors…and they know the ignorant asses that elected them won’t ever catch on since not a bit of this appears on fox news….that makes this fall’s election even more important than normal…we need to take the house and senate back to start to repair the damage the repubs have done to this country….tired of all the winning yet MAGA folks? impeach….

August 11th

Well…got up sore this morning and I hurt just about everywhere…my back and neck are stiff and I’m not sure why…may have slept wrong to hurt my neck but who knows about my back? Slept okay last night but need the coffee to work really soon or I may just take a nap on the couch….just feel exhausted right now and part of it may be not eating enough….didn’t get much done yesterday but watching Man U win their first match and that started the premier league season that continues with 3 more matches today…that will give me something to do on weekend mornings again…and I think there are races on today, too, so I shouldn’t be too bored…I do need to do some laundry today and run the dishwasher and I should vacuum but I’m not sure I will…the bike needs a wash, too but I am not motivated at all right now so that will have to be later….more later…

The worst people ever…

Well…getting ready to watch the first Man U match but thought I’d come here and do a shorty first….I can’t believe how unpatriotic every damn person in the repub party is…and the latest is just more of those revelations that show the true, terrible people they are. Just a few days back, it was reported that Betsy DeVos has her 40 million dollar yacht registered in a foreign country to avoid paying the entry fees and other taxes that would accrue if it was registered in the US. This shenanigan allows them to not pay any payroll taxes for the crew, either…and that is just like the rich assholes that infest this country right now…they never pay their share like the rest of us do…they are the real “takers” in this country….the worst people ever….

August 10th

Well…feel a little beat up this morning so it will be a slow start to the day….slept okay last night but there was a lot of tossing and turning so I’m not sure how much sleep I got…not enough with how I’m feeling…I did have some fun yesterday with a second pool day for the week…which I lost but had some fun so that was cool…they did finally get the re-pave on the lot done here yesterday so I can park in front again…they still need to re stripe it but who knows when that will happen…the coffee better start working soon or I’m going back to bed…didn’t get anything done yesterday but I will do something today before Man U starts their season at three so I won’t feel guilty watching it….I think I may have done some damage yesterday going hard on the bike since I am sore today…will need to take something for it here in a bit before I get out for the ride….more later…

Lawless republicans…

Well….the swamp keeps getting deeper and deeper with the lawless repubs finding more and more ways to show that they don’t giveĀ  a damn about the laws of this country. Over the past decade, almost every damn day, there is another instance of repubs thinking that the laws of this country don’t apply to them…only to the little people like you and me. The latest comes from one of trump’s biggest supporters in the House, Chris Collins, a NY rep, was just indicted along with his son and his son’s father in law for insider trading where they used information that Collins got as part of his rep position to short sell an Australian pharma company whose new drug for MS failed in clinical trials…this was done before the information became public and saved them almost 800,000 dollars that they would have lost when the stock tanked. Collins and his family were not the only ones who benefited from this insider trading…there were a half dozen other repub reps that were in on the scheme that haven’t been charged yet…and the sick thing is that the lawbreaking phone call to Collin’s son came from the WH lawn, showing that the repub bleatings about respect for the US and it’s institutions are just BS that they spout to get the rubes to vote for them. Is every damn repub in this government a criminal? It sure looks like it….impeach…

August 9th

Well….running on time today for a Thursday and that is a little boring…I do feel good today with being good for 4 days now but man, nights are a little boring when you’re being good…and when you can’t find anything to watch on tv….oh, well….slept okay last night but was up really early this morning and that was okay since I wasn’t rushed to get out the door for groceries…and now I’m just waiting for the rain to clear so I can get on the bike and get a long ride in…but, I need more than one cup of coffee for that…I did get out to Target to get a new kitchen trash can yesterday…the old one’s top has been broken for 3 years or so and it’s nice to have one that works again….didn’t get much else done yesterday and I’m shooting pool again today so that will mean I won’t get much done today, either…but that’s okay…don’t have a lot to do….I am hoping they finish up the re-pave of the lots here before I leave today so I’ll have a parking space in front when I get back here….more later…

A little politics…

Well…after yesterday’s election, I thought it would be an idea to talk a little about that before I get on to the rest of the day…first up, in the Michigan governor’s race, Gretchen Whitmer won the dem primary over Abdul and Tanedar…could have voted for Abdul with his record of progressive ideas but never for Tanedar…he contributed to Ted Cruz in the 2016 election and is a dem in name only…and he had a bunch of shady deals in his past and we don’t need compromised candidates on our side. Whitmer is up over the repub by 7-8 points in the latest poll and will be our best chance of taking the governor’s office back from the repubs…and I hope we can take one of the houses back here too, and start to repair the damage that Snyder and his cronies have done over the past 8 years. One of the big happenings in Missouri was the passing of proposal A that reversed the repubs attacks on working people by repealing their right to work for less law there…the only purpose of those laws are to attack working people and the unions that made the middle class and I think people are catching on…I hope they try that here, too…I would surely vote to keep the freeloading repubs from hurting unions….last, there was the tussle in Ohio 12 where the dem is still in the running pending the counting of provisional ballots there…this in a district that went for trump by 11 point in ’16 and that the repubs had to pour millions into to basically get a draw…at last count, the repubs outspent the dems by 5-1 and only lead by .7%…so it looks like we have a great chance to take the house this fall…and to start doing the repair work that we dems always have to do after the repubs screw everything up….geez.;…

What you never want to be….
