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

Truth and Lies

Well, I got up this morning (0400) made coffee, and then rode a little over 4 miles.  I think I've finally accepted the fact that any type of workout is going to be done in the morning, before I go to work.  That's what I did before my schedule changed.  I have very little ambition for exercise when I get home from work.
I got a call yesterday afternoon from the receptionist at Greenfield on Graysonview (management doesn't want to talk to me) telling me the 'Estate' check had been voided and a new check made out to me was going to be cut on Friday.  A little communication on their part would have kept this issue from cropping up in the first place.
And then there is the Verizon issue.  I've been thinking about getting local channels only $25 a month.  I talked to one of their reps named Jace (probably not his real name) who told me I did not need to have a set-top box connected to my TV.  My house is 114 years old.  I have one FIOS cable coming into the house for Internet.  I do not have cable outlets in any rooms.  Well, Jace lied.  After listening to 'hold music' yesterday for over 50 minutes the service tech told me "no, you need to have a set-top box connected to at least one TV."  The only work around is to buy a 'wireless HDMI cable set.'  A bit pricey, but I think worth it.  Why, you might ask?  Because the new deal knocks $15 dollars off my old bill.  I'll be paying $84.99 a month for 2 years.
And  saw this funny thing about taxes yesterday.  Evidently a lot of people believe the wealthy should pay more taxes... a lot more.  This sort of statistic makes Republicans shriek and writhe in agony, in fact the 40% who oppose this are... Republicans.  "The rich pay more taxes?" they bellow!  They believe the rich to be special because of their campaign donations.  We all know crater-faced Steve Mnuchin and his bimbolina blond wife could easily afford to pay more than they do.
Also, yesterday, the Idiot Jerk threw a hastily thrown together luncheon hoping to entice some centrist Democrats to wallow in his shit pool    and no one showed up.  The Republicans are beginning to gnaw on their knuckles because the Democrats are.... UNITED.  That din you hear in the background?  That's the American Freedom Caucus pummeling their heads with their greedy, little self-righteous fists because the approval rating of the president they love and praise is down to 37%.  This is not the way you recover from a really bad election cycle.
Finally, Theresa May and her Brexiteers are in deep shit as well.  Parliament soundly crushed the deal she had been trying for so long to put together.  You have to remember now, many of those who voted for Brexit are the same as those who voted for the Idiot Jerk in the White House: middle-aged white people who feel they deserve so much more than they already have.   This is not a good thing for the UK which might end up leaving the EU without any kind of plan what so ever.  This is the price of greed.  Here in America we have the Idiot Jerk, the only thing he's good at is lying.


  1. I’m like you: any kind of workout needs to happen in the morning because I’m just tired when I get back home. So that’s that. The Dems seem to be showing a backbone. Good! Brexit was a shitshow and it still is. Vlad should be happy. He’s managed to destabilize the countries he hates the most with the least effort possible. Beware of stupid people in big numbers. They can to
    Pile a nation


    1. And the Idiot Jerk is in on the destabilization, you can bet on it.

  2. "yesterday, the Idiot Jerk threw a hastily thrown together luncheon" - did he serve cold fatty fast-food "hamberders"? and did he pay for it?

    1. The only ones who showed up were Republicans and we know they'll settle for shit sandwiches.
