Today is Friday... it's also payday. I like it when money goes into my bank account because I like to buy things. Don't we all?
Anyway, last night was the 2nd night of the first Democratic Debates. As usual, I watch a bit, mostly because one of them is going kick the snot out of the Idiot Jerk in the next election. As luck would happen, I tuned in during the "pass the torch" discussion was happening. That's right, I saw Uncle Joe say he wasn't ready to pass the torch. What ensued was a moment of Democratic inspirational chaos, with everyone trying to make a comment. Looking over notes from a number of different sources this morning it seems as though 3 survived with almost flying colors: Harris, Butigieg, and Bennett. Nobody else, including 2 of the front runners, Biden and Sanders fared very well. When I get the chance I need to find the clip where Maddow uses a quote to ask Sanders a question and he says something to the effect that the quote is a mischaracterization. I guess the audience erupted in laughter when Maddow said "but you said it." I've said it before and I'll say it again, Bernie's an old fool who's just trying to feed his ego.
On the way home from work yesterday I saw that the temperature was 98 (F). It dropped down to 97 by the time I hit Enola. This is funny because no one has said anything about heat warnings. Maybe we only have heat waves in July...
Oh, my, and it seems as though the Idiot Jerk and his wealthy minions are thinking about screwing around with taxes... again. I didn't get the gist of what's being planned, but evidently something with Capital Gains. He knows Congress will not approve it... the election is coming, so he using some sort of Executive Action to bypass all those Senators who would vote against it. This change will... of course, benefit the wealthy, and only the wealthy. I see this as another sign that those around him realize he's going to fail in his bid to get re-elected. They're trying to shove as much shit into their lifeboat as they can.
Can you even begin to imagine a debate between the Idiot Jerk and either Warren or Harris? I wonder how many times he'd say "fuck" on National TV.
