So, tomorrow's Thanksgiving. This is supposed to be a time when friends and family gather. Of course, we know that's not going to be happening for a growing number of families. Yesterday was just another day of the week when it comes to mass shootings. First there was QClub, now a Walmart. I haven't seen any Conservatives sending thoughts and prayers yet this morning, but it's only a matter of time. People will ask what's wrong with America? The answer is simple. Conservatives. They are desperate to dictate how America lives it's lives and they realized a long time ago, the only way this is going to happen is if they build a coalition of disparate groups: the Evangelicals, the fiscal conservatives, the Qs, and the 2nd amendments loyalists. In order to keep that coalition together, they try and give these groups everything they want, and always at the expense of others. This is the only way conservatives can win. We've started shutting them down, and we must continue because they will never learn.
The electricians were here yesterday. They were not expecting the surprises a 118 year old home had in store for them, like cross beams in between the studs. They made more holes. Those in the ceiling will be fixed by the drywall contractor, who starts this morning. The ones in the wall? They are going to have to wait until this spring when I have 1/4 inch drywall installed to cover them, part of the slow kitchen renovation that is taking place. Those striped throw rugs? They're covering a window opening that used to look out onto my back porch.
And, as you might expect, Kev McCarthy, standing on the boarder, told America that after the Republicans take control of the House, there's a good possibility they will impeach Mayorkas. The party that can only say 'no' when they're not in power, needs to hand out a little retribution to keep their base happy. If that retribution happens to benefit them politically, well, so much the better. Conservatives need their dead horse to kick. The base loves it. Retribution helps keep their coalition together. They need to continue fomenting anger against the party in power. That and Hunter Biden's laptop; this will be their Benghazi for the next 2 years.
