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

Tacos or Bigfoot

After today, I get 3 days off in a row, a mini-vaca, so to speak.  Today is also August 1.  We are heading into the dog days, that time of the summer where temperatures are high and rain is scarce... just like we've been having for the past month.  I look at the weather app on my phone and see rain north of us and south of us, Central PA, however, seems stuck in a band of dryness.  My little potted garden is suffering.  I do have tomatoes and peppers, jalapenos and poblamos, and my basil is doing okay, but the cucumbers are tiny.  Since the dogs don't eat them, next year I'll plant them in the ground.
So, I see the Idiot Jerk in the White House is going to ban TikTok with an Executive Order.  He gives a lot of reasons, but remember, he lies constantly.  Also remember that it was people on TikTok who claimed responsibility for trolling his Tulsa rally to death.  While that validity of that statement is questionable, it did make a lot of headlines... and the Idiot Jerk in the White House has been known to hold a grudge.  He hates it when people mock him and make fun of him, which is exactly what TikTok did. So, it wouldn't surprise me if this banning has more to do with revenge then anything else.
There was an interesting article in Politico concerning polls for Florida.  Floridians were evidently rejecting the 13% spread of the Quinnipiac  polls siting past errors.  Okay, so 13% is extremely high.  Unfortunately for the Idiot Jerk, even Fox News is putting him into a deep hole.  The article in Politico didn't address the rest of the polls so those complaining must have no problem them.  The fact that the Idiot Jerk has been increasing spending in the Sunshine State (by a lot) indicates internal polling is showing the same thing.  Ouch.
Finally, I'm trying to decide which socks I should wear on tonight's ride.  Tacos or Bigfoot?
