Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Hello Dolley

Okay, so I was sitting at work yesterday thinking on how I really didn't want to go to work today, it being my sixth day in a row, and after pondering for several hours decided it wasn't going to happen. So, on the way home I stopped by my local Giant and picked up a bottle of Oyster Bay Sauvignon Blanc.  And in spite of what I'd written yesterday morning, I didn't ride last evening.  This is how life happens sometimes.
The store was fairly busy up until about noon, but then began to slow down.  By the time I left, most of the shoppers were foreign nationals.  We still did great business.  People are spending their government checks.
Since I now am off today, I'll drive over to Petsmart and buy my gravel today.  And a net.  And a test kit.  The heater arrives also, this afternoon.  I may actually begin to put water in, too.
I saw an interesting article in Bloomberg on the Idiot Jerk's base.  When the virus spreads among them, support for him withers.  This doesn't mean they'll vote for a Democrat.  They're just going to avoid their local polling station they way they would avoid the plague.  
Before he was elected, the US was a major player in world politics.  We were the good guys next to the Russians and the Chinese.  That is no longer the case.  He is turning us into a minor player leaving a void which both Putin and Xi have eagerly been trying to fill.  They must have given him special financing on his loans for him to do that.
And, of course, every speech he makes is aimed directly at his hard core conservative base as he tries to drum up their hatred.  He is becoming a very angry man as fewer and fewer people accept his lies.  Anxiety is growing in the Senate as he has yet to put out any clear message as to what he plans to accomplish in his second term other than create a statue garden at Mount Rushmore.  He thinks statues of confederate losers, and Dolley Madison (?) are going to be a great draw.  Dolley?  Did she do anything besides make ice cream? 


Oh, for quite some time she was evidently the best known of the First Ladies, and was considered the queen of Washington.

  2. Yesterday I went to Lowe’s to get a bug hotel. I thought about you and your customers LoL
    And the Orange One is dog whistling so hard everybody can hear him. He’s gone full on white supremacy. Did you see he tweeter at Bubba today about the NASCAR noose? And that Fourth of July debacle.
    Xi and Vlad are more han eager to take over. They both have shit on IMPOTUS. I hope it all implodes for him and he repugs soon. Preferably before November.
    Still excited about your fish tank!
    XoXo

  4. It'll take The Blues years to fix what he's done.

  5. I'm so afraid to hope that he'll lose the election this fall. I don't know how I would cope with another 4 years of this. I HOPE that lots of his support has dried up and some R's will stay home and not vote at all, but I wished for that last time and the bastards went out and voted for him anyway. And plenty of them will be too ashamed to say that they plan to vote for him, but they will just as sure as shit. We can't get complacent, no matter how bad things look for him!
