For those who don't know, Cinco de Mayo is an important part of the Mexican Heritage. Unfortunately for many conservatives, this is just a day when you get to wear funny hats, have a reason to go to Taco Bell, and maybe drink tequila. In their minds they will still be equating Mexican people with bad hombres, and drug dealers, and illegal immigrants. When they visualize Mexicans all they see are people with darker skin, the opposite of the white Conservative. Oh, and most of them are Catholic... which is a big part of the White Evangelical bias. What can be worse than being dark skinned and Catholic? Well, maybe being a white, racist Republican.
After today's celebration at work, I can get myself back into my standard routine. With the past couple of days of dealing with the sudden onset of mid-July temperatures, and my neighbors sewage issues I've fallen out of sync. This means I've not lifted waits since Tuesday, nor ridden the bike, and on top of that have eaten way too much junk. As much as I hate to say it, in the past couple of days I've grown fluffy.
|Holy shit, I feel like I'm a 30|
This is a feeling I hate. And I can trace the whole thing back to breakfast with my brother on Wednesday morning. I ate heavier than normal, planning on riding that afternoon, but the ride didn't take place because... sewage issues, and talks with the bean heads plumbers my neighbors hired. Everything sort of snowballed from there.
Anyway, the shit storm that is the Idiot Jerk's administration continues to fire shit rockets all over the place. I guess he spoke to the NRA yesterday and called London a War Zone. He calls a lot of places a War Zone. When he flew over Harrisburg he called the city a War Zone. Oh, and the white trash Evangelicals here still voted for him. Stupid is as stupid does.
