Bluntness

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

The Trump Death

Well, golly gee wiz... it's Wednesday. Today is a legitimate day off for me.  Today is also April Fools day and because of the inept handling by the Idiot Jerk's administration during the very beginning of this crisis and lot of Americans are going to die.  Son of a bitch.
I baked Italian bread yesterday, a first for me.  Without loaf pans!  Believe me, it is quite tasty.  The bake time give was 20 - 25 minutes, that was wrong, it's closer to 45 minutes.  I will play around with this one.  I did you a different type of yeast, one from Italy.


Since I don't speak Italian, I used Google translate, and I had to convert metric to imperial.  All being said, I was very satisfied.
I did another Yoga class yesterday and then rode 13.94 miles in Amsterdam.  The ride is flat, so it's more of an endurance thing than anything else.  I do not doubt I will be doing the same thing today.
And, of course, the Idiot Jerk finally let Birx and Fauci talk about the grim reality approaching us.  We are going to be the country that is most devastated by Covid - 19.  There are those out there who think he's been doing a good job with handling this plague.  That will change as the numbers continue to increase.  Who will suffer most?  The poor.  They have no healthcare, no safety net to fall into.  Where will most of the casualties be?  I do not doubt for a minute it will be the Idiot Jerk's base.  They are the ones who thought Social Distancing was a joke.  They still don't grasp the seriousness of this impending catastrophe.  They are still the ones believing the media is blowing this thing way out of proportion and unfortunately for them, they are old with underlying health issues.  You know who I'm talking about, the ones who came into the store wearing their little MAGA hats.  They will feel the brunt of Covid - 19.  That sounds so odd, doesn't it?  Covid - 19.  So clinical.  I would not be surprised if in a few weeks people start calling it by its real name:  The Trump Death
Perhaps if our government had paid attention to how South Korea, or China were handling this thing we might have spared ourselves the worst.  That ain't going to happen.
I suspect sooner rather than later I will start taking all of that personal and vacation time I have on the books.

  1. Cheeto is gonna try to spin the fact that they didn’t let him lift restrictions as a ‘win’ because ‘only’ several hundred thousand died instead of millions. And people will applaud him. Idiots!
    And google translate is your best friend! 😎😎😎 bet that homemade bread was tasty. I love homemade stuff.
    I like yoga. It helps me center. I do need to do some kind of aerobic exercise, but I always go back to yoga.

    1. No, this spin artist knows both he and his party are history. He knows his base is going to believe he's caving to media pressure... and continue to infect themselves.

  2. I work for a Chinese company. They wear masks still everywhere. They were on tight lock down across the country and temperatures were taken everywhere. We would never submit to the restrictions they did.

  4. I honestly feel nothing will stick to this man, I will not be surprised if it's another four years of the donald. All he has to do is say someone stopped him from protecting Americans and people will believe him.

    1. Sorry, this is the end of both he and his party. You could see it on his face yesterday when he let Birx and Fauci speak.

  5. I've been doing yoga for a long time now, taking classes and so on, but with this lockdown, I'm doing them at home and making Carlos do it, too.
    It's, um, fun? =)

    1. That must be a real joy. I can hear him asking things like "why is it called the warrior pose?"
