Earlier this morning, I replaced my smoke alarm. They're supposed to last 10 years - my last one started having issues after 3. It would talk. That's right, I had a talking smoke alarm. It warned carbon Monoxide as well. Sometimes it would talk about that. Mostly however, it would talk about fire. For no reason at all, a very calming female voice would say "fire... fire... fire has been detected. Evacuate immediately." She didn't scream or yell. Nope. There was no alarm either, just her voice "fire... fire...fire has been detected." Occasionally I'd get "carbon monoxide has been detected. Evacuate immediately," but usually 3 to 4 times a week she'd talk about the non-existent fire. Never while I was cooking. Never at night. After about 5 minutes she'd stop. I have no idea for how long this had been going on, since I work. Anyway, she has now been replaced. Hopefully I'll get more than 3 years use out of this one.
And what about that Chris Collins. the first Senator to support the Idiot Jerk in the White House? Charged with Insider Trading. He must have read the Idiot Jerk's book "The Art of the Steal." Now his political career is in free fall. I wonder how long we'll have to wait for a supporting Tweet from the Idiot Jerk, something like "Chris is a good guy, he was just a little too anxious about a good deal."

Of course you know the Republicans are now running around crying "fuck,fuck,fuck,fuck." They're worried about the Kansas Governor election now, and Ohio has them scared, and now New York, where their Rep Collins might end up in jail. "Fuck,fuck,fuck,fuck,fuck." The warning signs were there, they just couldn't believe them. Believing them would mean they were wrong. They just can not believe they are wrong, that so many, many Americans see them as self-centered, greedy, sacks of shit who don't give a damn about anyone but themselves. Now they're scared. There's a Blue Wave coming that's going to wash them away.
