Okay, so it's Monday. I'm off tomorrow. I can not wait.
Yesterday... it rained... all... day. This creates a problem. Big Seig does not like to get wet. He'll go outside and do his business in a light, sprinkling shower but not in a steady rain. He's a big dog, remember, and big dogs do big business. And so he holds it until, like a small child racing to the potty, he's forced to make a made dash to the river birch in the back yard. Sometimes there are accidents. They are not pretty. Yesterday, luckily, we had a 5 minute break in the rain around 6:20 PM. There are many ways to spell relief, Big Seig can probably tell you all of them.
I saw where the Idiot Jerk in the White House Tweet some sort of nonsense about raising the tariffs on China again. In case you didn't know, this is how he demonstrates his business acumen to his base. Okay, so was anybody surprised? You shouldn't have been. This is his standard operating procedure, just a slight variation he pulls on the contractors who build his properties. "I'm not satisfied with your work so I'm not going to pay you what was in the contract." Here he's telling the Chinese "you weren't fast enough, so I'm not giving you what you want." The problem is he's not dealing with a contractor here. His bankruptcies prove he makes a lot of mistakes, others always pay the cost. He doesn't care. His only concern is for his own, personal business. Now, ain't that the shits?
One of the first things I saw this morning was that we're also sending a carrier group to the Middle East. That's another bit of business aimed at the Conservative base, most of whom are in their mid-40's and older, and who constantly remind themselves how wonderfully religious they are in their beliefs. In their tiny little minds our superior military will stomp out evil Iran. How quickly they've forgotten W's "Awe and..." whatever they called that war, and how it dragged on... and on... and on. But their only business is to be good Conservatives, they don't like to use their brains; it hurts too much, and then they realize they need to wipe their shitty asses. Like the Idiot Jerk, they believe themselves to be smart... however history proves them to be anything but smart.
On a brighter note... I have peaches!!!
