Bluntness

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

Bongo Brains

So it's Monday morning and today's my Saturday. 
I'm having breakfast with my brother.  For those who don't know, he's a white (what can I say?  It runs in the family), Evangelical Republican who loves the Idiot Jerk in the White House.  This will be interesting.
I rode 13.7 miles yesterday on the new trainer.  The only thing you hear is the chain catching onto the teeth of the cassette.  This is so different from the humming buzz of the old trainer.  And where the old trainer was securely locked into place, the Tacx has a little left / right wobble as you pedal, very much like riding on the open road.  The only thing I'm not wild about is the Tacx cycling app.  You need to schedule your ride as an 'activity' before you ride.  I like to just get on the back, pick a route and start pedaling.  My main subscription is for Rouvy and I'm not planning on letting it lapse.
And isn't it funny watching the Republicans twist... and scream... and shout?  The impeachment, you know?  Their flabbergasted little asses are working non-stop in an attempt to pile bullshit.  Many of them feel this will backfire to the Idiot Jerk's advantage.  They like to point to the Clinton impeachment, where he was elected to a 2nd term.  The main difference between the two is they kept kicking Clinton when he was down.  They didn't know when to stop.  They still don't.  Look at the Benghazi hearings?  There's no intent on growing their base, just keeping them incensed.  The fact that Republicans and Conservatives, as well as Evangelical Christians, are minority groups doesn't even come into the picture.  Nor does the fact that those 3 groups are composed of the same individuals.  If you're an Evangelical Christian your also going to be a Conservative and a Republican.  These bongo brains will never learn.


The temp is actually around 70 (F) outside and they're forecasting rain on and off all day.  Looking at Accuweather, I see massive amounts of green heading my way.  We need it.  This has actually been a very dry summer.  Tomorrow is supposed to be overcast, cool, and a little dryer.  That means I can get some yardwork done.

  2. I doubt anything will come of this. That bastatd will slide by and get a second term. Unless Biden wins. But at this rate the oldsters are having heart attacks.........

    1. Nah, it's going to be the 'big Hhouse," for the Idiot jerk. Coal mines are upset with them because jobs are still disappearing and farmers in the mid-west are pissed because all the subsidies are going to the corporate farms, not the Mom and Pop farmers who voted for him.

  3. Kudos to you for being able to stomach eating with your brother. You’re a better person than I. I would have erased him from my life.
    So yes, Cheeto and the impeachment. He may squeak by because the repugs are not gonna do squat but he’ll be weakened. His ego will take a beating, too.
    Ohh Bongo Brain! 82 called and reminded us how much fun they were.

    XoXo

    1. He's fine, I'm sure he took a Zantac to prep for the heartburn I cause him.

  4. My mother is a Trump supporter so I understand that these afflictions can run in any family. Glad you survived the lunch.
