Well, this should come as no surprise to anyone. It's raining. Again. Yesterday, which was supposed to be warm and humid, you'll notice I'm saying warm, not hot, since the temps were only supposed to go into the low 90s (F), we got rain. We had a lot of rain. Downpours, and they turned into on again, off again showers. If things dry out enough, I'm mowing my lawn tomorrow.
I'm having Brussel sprouts for breakfast because they're chunky with Vitamin C and because I opened the refrigerator door and thought, 'damn, I'd better eat those before they go bad.' Keep in mind, your stomach has no idea what time it is.
Business was slow at the store yesterday, though I did manage to get 2 measures. One is for a tile job. Tile is an expensive installation. Tile is considered an asset to the value of your home, though it doesn't nearly increase the value as hardwood. Most of us know the true value of hard wood.
With all the depressing horse shit going on, I figured I'd post a little video of Sir Paul McCartney, at 79 years of age, performing Band on the Run. Let me repeat his age for those of you who know nothing about aging, he's 79. I love this song. I'm so glad I was able to see him perform this live when he played in Hershey, PA.
I saw that there were protests yesterday, mostly peaceful. There were some gunshots fired at Pride events in both San Francisco and in New York, I believe, and there's not loud indication that bias was pulling the triggers. A number of Pride events became anti-abortion quietly controlled anti-abortion protests. The Cracker Jack Crazies Christians, and their enablers on Fox News had been broadcasting about the approaching violence from liberal extremists. Instead, there was quietude. Intelligent conservatives have begun to mutter this lack of an intense outburst portends to something far worse, the worst trouncing they've ever received at the ballot box.
American will never rid itself of conservatives, so they need to be marginalized, constantly on the run. This begins with local elections. Electing enough Democrat senators to codify Roe v Wade, same sex marriage, and the right to contraceptives will never be enough as long as Clarence Thomas continues to try and prove that he is the strongest, whitest, conservative on the Supreme Court. Red states need to be turned blue. Laws will need to be passed to protect our rights. This needs to be started now, this November. Since the court has said this is up to the states, we need to take back control of the states. We also need to keep a majority in both the House and Senate in order to begin fixing this radically, extremist court that Trump built. Right now, whether the GOP realizes it or not, they're standing still. The time has come for us to light a fire under their asses so we can see how fast and how far they run away.
I was just reading Infidel and he thinks Dems are gonna stay home and pout. I think it's not likely to happen (there's so much more than abortion on the line!) and I agree with you: people will go out and vote the bigots out.ReplyDelete
I think the white gays will panic when they realize their Banana Republic asses are on the line and that their designer babies and reclaimed picket fences are in danger.
Infidel is wrong.Delete
I don't know I agree with that either but will say I know many Dems not happy right now, but will vote , but only vote grudgingly because of lack of another party, or because of lack of new candidates.Delete
Hehehe now, that's a man who does NOT like to be wrong. Hopefully people will go out and vote en masse.Delete
Huntley works with voting and he just told me he's seeing a ton of people this morning. Fingers crossed!
The Planned Parenthood opened the Pride Parade in New York City this weekend. The applause was thundering when they arrived. And your right....our rights and abortion were hand in hand this pride. I m glad I went....I also didn't with my mood from last week.ReplyDelete
Their problem is they truly believe that since they have those judges America should just shut up. And yes, they truly are that stupid,Delete
Eeww brussels sprouts for breakfast (or more accurately for me "eeeww brussels sprouts any time", I guess! Still my ex couldn't believe I would eat cold pizza for breakfast so each to his own, I guess!ReplyDelete
I like Brussel sprouts, of course, I also like cold pizza for breakfast, in fact, cold pizza is good anytime.Delete
Taking away a right from any of us, pouts all of us in peril.ReplyDelete
I will feel great joy watching them learn their lesson.Delete
Paul looks good for his age and I like Dave Grohl, but I don't think I would be paying the money those people probably did to see him.ReplyDelete
I paid $275 five years ago to see him. The show was about 2.5 hours long. He talks about working with the Beatles and Wings. It was well worth the money to see an icon.Delete
