Well, here it is Saturday and the storm has come and gone. We had horizontal snow which melted and some very high winds. People lost power. Not me. Though the river birch I have planted in my back yard did lose a lot of branches.
The new ceiling fan arrived yesterday - in all of that wind. I found it waiting for me on the front porch, too heavy to be blown around. I unpacked it, checked to see if it uses the same mounting bracket as my current ceiling fan, and then went to bed... early. Bad idea. You see I woke up... early. And since I was awake, I got up... another bad idea. Even though I got things done, by the time 0530 rolled around, I was tired, wishing I'd stayed in bed. As a result I took a nap, and ended finally getting up closer to 0700. No cardio today. Shit.
And last week was a banner week for cluster fucks at the White House. The Idiot Jerk came out for gun control... and then an NRA lobbyist, evidently a new spokesperson for the White House, announced that the Idiot Jerk had not been serious. Hope Hicks announced she's leaving... after chatting with Mueller... they say she had a "misty" goodbye with the Idiot Jerk. Jared lost his Top Secret clearance. Jared is also under some serious investigation - selling White House favors in order to get financing for Kushner debt (lock him up! lock him up!). Oh, and the Idiot Jerk wants to start a Trade War. Did I miss anything?
This past week we got to see the Idiot Jerk become "unglued." He also Tweeted an attack against Alec Baldwin, who basically told him to wipe his ass and shut up. That's was funny, too.
We also got to see resistance against the NRA growing. And the Georgia legislature tried to punish Delta Airlines because they stopped giving discounts to the NRA. Those Republican legislators from Georgia love the NRA so much they voted to exclude Delta from getting a tax break. Delta, announced that they are going to review which groups get discounts. Translation? Legislators from Georgia will lose their discounts.
And anger towards the gun lobby is not dissipating, rather we see that it's growing and spreading, the boycott now including other products gun manufacturers sell... like surfboards. People are finally telling these morons to shut up. Good. I suspect the NRA is on the verge of following the Idiot Jerk in the White House, also becoming unglued.
Finally, a bit of movie irony. This Crazy Christian flick called "Samson" opened the same night as "Black Panther." To date it has earned a little over $4 million at the box office, while "Black Panther" might actually hit $500 million this weekend. So, who do you think is out of touch with the real world. I suspect there's another group that's about to become unglued.
