The holidays have arrived, or, at least they will in relatively few days. First up will be the crassly commercialized Thanksgiving with its football, followed by that ever popular Black Friday. Is it me, or does it seem like corporate retailers no longer have dominion over the American Household? Not that there still aren't enough wack jobs out there who fail to realized those great deals are nothing more than corporate manipulation.
Anyway, I am scheduled to work today. I'm supposed to be an appliance salesman. They do this every year. Usually, it doesn't happen. I almost always hang around the flooring desk. Today, will probably be the same. You see, I'm scheduled to start at 0930, and the temps are cold. Not quite bone chilling, but a very brisk 22 (F), outside. Customers might venture out this afternoon. And there are a lot of wack jobs out there who still think the best deals are only on Black Friday.
I worked yesterday and it was oh, so slow.
Tomorrow, the electrician comes to install my dryer hookup. He will also be installing 2 outlets, one in the kitchen, and another upstairs for the washer. These are dedicated lines. Nice.
A lot of America is talking about what happened at Club Q. Another tragedy. One thing that I read yesterday stands out above all else: two unarmed gay men did what the heavily armed police force in Uvalde couldn't do. Take a few minutes and let that thought sink. They took the shooters handgun away from him and hit him with it. I hope they hit him in the face, maybe broke his nose, and all in self-defense. Two minutes after the police arrived, this 22 year-old loser named Aldrich was in custody. Five poor souls died, but the actions of two unarmed gay men saved countless of others. America saw a sense of strength in Colorado Springs they were not expecting.
Real heroes usually aren't to be found wearing a Superman cape. Well done those two men! They're the real heroes!ReplyDelete
Quite a few people seem to be taking notice to this.Delete
I highly doubt Trump will return to Twitter, I mean that would make his own social platform look like it's not doing well. How would it look if he didn't use his own platform? I still think it would be funny if Twitter folded.ReplyDelete
He has some sort of financial agreement with Truth Social. I doubt if it will fold, Musk will call bankruptcy and sell it for a loss.Delete
Those men at Q are heroes, and prove that it doesn't take good men with guns to take down a bad man with a gun.ReplyDelete
The GOP can fuck all the way off. They literally care nothing about We the People.
Heroes yes! You're right about the good man with a gun bullshit, but then we've always known that.Delete
I hope Twitter croaks and goes the way of MySpace and Tumblr. I can't wait until Elon sells it for ten million.ReplyDelete
The shooting has got me incensed. Especially because all the bigots and Repugs are offering thoughts and prayers after THEY have stoked the flames of hatred. Ugh.
And yep, two unarmed gay men took on the fucker with the rifle. How's that for ammosexual fantasy?
Those Republican hypocrites are being called out left and right on Twitter. Yeah, and it is falling apart because of Musk. I will probably switch soon.Delete
