Well, it's Saturday and for many people out there it is the beginning of a 3 day weekend... but not for me, in fact I get to work for the next 3 days. There are no holidays in Retail. Well, sometimes, I do get off on Christmas Day and Thanksgiving, but those are the only 2, not that it really bothers me.
And, in case anyone is wondering, it's beginning to drizzle outside: here comes Harvey to Central PA.
Oh, and the Idiot Jerk in the White House is going to be in Texas today... again, and this time he's going to talk to...residents. This means a carefully scripted event where those chosen to make it on camera be sure to praise the Idiot Jerk. Remember Hurricane Sandy, Obama and Christie walking, and talking to people? My money says that ain't gonna happen. It wouldn't surprise me if he doesn't spend a little time with the 'residents' and then get a round of golf in with Joel Osteen.
Interestingly enough, the Idiot Jerk's budget had cuts to FEMA, well, guess that ain't gonna happen. I can only wonder what he's going to do if Irma develops in what forecasters are predicting, another whopper of a hurricane. Speaking of FEMA, they're already telling those displaced by Harvey that it's going to be a 'long haul.' Upwards of half a million people are expected to apply for disaster relief, and that is, in case the Idiot Jerk in the White House doesn't know, a lot of votes.
