Okay, so it's Thursday. The temperature is supposed to go up to 35 (F) today. That's almost balmy.
This is also our inventory day. Normally they bring in food for everyone, I was told this year they're only bringing it in for those helping with the inventory so I'm going to be taking some fried chicken just in case my lunch is not going to be provided.
Also, my new schedule was posted yesterday and the new scheduler made some mistakes. She used my 'days off' to cover my Jury Duty. We do not do that. I will need to have a sit down with her tomorrow to revise my schedule.
And I see that the Trade Deficit, one of those 'major problems' the Idiot Jerk in the White House was going to fix is... getting worse. He said he would bring that deficit down, which is why we have those silly little tariffs, and actually it's going up. The idea was for foreign products to go up in price, therefore making American products more competitive. Well, 'made in America' is still 'made more expensive.' Giving people a bit of a tax break in the paychecks is no incentive to buy the more expensive 'made in America,' which is something Republicans just don't get.
And little Stevie Mnuchin has asked Congress to increase the debt limit ASAP because we need to be able to pay off our creditors. You see that great tax break the Republican congress gave to corporations and the very wealthy is costing the United States buckets of buckos. Yeah, they had to borrow money to pay for it. You see, in the Republican drone state of mind corporations will use those to tax breaks to pop up employee pay rates and those employees will compensate for the tax breaks. That's right, your average American is going to foot the bill. Republicans have always been stupid about economics.
And finally, I thought I'd write a little about the catacombs of Paris. They're big, and some of them are deep and only a small section is open to Tourists. Of particular interest to us are those around the Arc de Triomphe which are not open to the General Public.
When bones were being moved from cemeteries they were put in a number of locations, depending upon the arrondissement where the cemetery was located. Over the years cataphiles have done much with graffiti.. and the bones... and the little alters they built for their ancestors. Oh, and except for certain areas, there is on lighting. What illumination you have is that which you carry, be it a headlamp... or flashlight. Without either of those you are walking in pitch black darkness. If you ever venture down into the catacombs make sure you have a reliable guide.
Oh, Cheeto and his art of the deal. He sold the trumpanzees the image of a great salesman and he’ll bury the country in debt and fucked up business deals. But they KNEW what they were getting.ReplyDelete
As for the catacombs, there’s a movie on Netflix (of course) about some cataphiles that go there and (of course) terrible things happen. I watched it with all the lights on.
Of course he'll bury us in bad debt, if it weren't for bad debt and bad loans he'd be nothing.Delete
fuck the dump, fuck lil stevie, FUCK THEM ALL!ReplyDelete
I'm sure Invanka has already taken care of that.Delete
I'd like the entire administration to be sent to the catacombs!ReplyDelete
Why ruin a good catacomb? Wouldn't it be better to just burn them at the stake? Oh, wait, that's what you do with witches.Delete
I have been to Paris a couple of times, but I have never been to the catacombs. If I am ever in Paris again, I plan to pay a visit.ReplyDelete
Yeah, I've never been to them either. when I decided to take the plot down in the catacombs for a bit, I thought 'maybe I should fly over and see them.'Delete
