The first day of my weekend starts today! Oh, and it's a minor holiday. Columbus day has been in existence since 1971. I have no idea why. I mean, he never set foot on the continental United States. An Italian by the name of Giovanni Caboto landed in Newfoundland a bit later, which might be a bit north, but is still part of the Continent. The Brits call Caboto, John Cabot, but he was anything but British. Ponce de Leon set up the first colony... in Florida... a bit before the Pilgrims set sail. Surprise, these guys weren't really white. What Columbus did which is far more important than his discovering Central America is... prove the world was not flat. You do know that if the Idiot Jerk had been living 500 years ago, he'd have called that 'fake news.'
I have chores galore planned for today. The weather is supposed to be nice both today and tomorrow. Wednesday... the day I go back to work, they are forecasting rain. I have no problem with that. We've had a very dry summer here in Central Pa. Not like the the farmers out in Iowa, they've had rain issues. Of course, like true Republicans and supporters of the Idiot Jerk in the White House, they are blaming the Army Corp of Engineers... not climate change. No light bulb is going off in their heads regarding that topic. Nope, instead of scratching their temples and asking "what's with all of the rain," they're putting the blame on human beings... because the climate can't change. The fact that this is beginning to happen in their lifetimes is boggling their little gray cells to the point where the pectin is beginning to break down. In a few short years they will have mutated into jellyheads. Oh, wait, that can't happen, that would be evolution.
And yesterday, while I was cleaning up the dog doo in the yard, I saw I had a bloom on my white rose bush.
There's a touch of brown around the edge, but that happens.
Columbus deserves no holiday, and no respect.ReplyDelete
I agree completely. I think maybe we should celebrate and explorer's day.Delete
He'd be rather boney right now, don't you think?Delete
I could never figure out Colombus day either.ReplyDelete
It's sort of like Arbor day, except some people get off work. You think they'd get off on Arbor day so they could plant treesDelete
It's hard for me to believe that people (with the exception of Cheeto) ever really thought the world was flat when you see the ancient Greeks' statue of Atlas carrying the earth on his shoulder. Now if he had been carrying a tray maybe ….ReplyDelete
You have to remember, like our moral degenerate in the White House, these people get really bad headaches when they think.Delete
Columbus Day is a ridiculous "holiday." The man was a jerk. It would be like having a holiday for Trump.ReplyDelete
That's so funny! Rather, we should have a Viking Day since they landed in Newfoundland before Columbus was even born, and they didn't slaughter native peoples, nor did they destroy cultures.Delete
Oh, you know what I think about C-bus day! LoLReplyDelete
And Cheeto and his minions will never respond tho those farmers fucked by his tariffs. Not like the farmers are saying no to the socialist help they are getting from the government, either. Hypocrisy!
"Socialist help to the farmers". OK. Let's say suddenly Home Depot (or whomever you work for) had nowhere to sell their products. Products they had paid a lot of money to produce. All because someone was trying to be a big shot and not succeeding. For several years in a row. And you're watching your neighboring farmers lose their family farms. And you're worried you might lose yours. So the idiot in charge (rightfully so) offers up some money to see you through. Is that hypocrisy? Is that what you said about the bank bailouts? The savings and loans bailouts? GM bailouts? And those were all a result of poor decisions and management...not things beyond their control.ReplyDelete
If you are a vegan, or only eat gluten-free, maybe a farming disaster doesn't affect you quite as much. But think about the things made with soybeans and the family farmers who rely on selling them for at least more than they cost to produce them before you scream "hypocrisy". Direct your disdain at the cause of the problem, where it belongs. And look around you the next time you walk through the supermarket. Thank you :-)
Where do I say anything about 'socialist help to farmers?' I did mention in an earlier blog how most of the help being given is going to the large, corporate farms rather than the Mom & Pop farms which is devastating them.Delete
