Bluntness

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

Early Desperation

Remember when today was called Hump Day, middle of the work week for some of you out there, until Covid - 19 and you began working from home.  My, how things have changed for a number of people, not for me however.  My hours may have shifted somewhat, but I've been going in to work every scheduled work day since this thing began.  For those of you who had problems with the Stay at Home orders, now you know you need to get a Part-Time Job at a Home Improvement store prior to the next pandemic.
Bad news for the Idiot Jerk - Stevie Mnunchin says the unemployment rate has not peaked. 
Prepare yourselves, from what I've been reading, with the economy in a slump that will last until sometime in 2021, and the fact that he didn't care how many died from Covid - 19 as long as he wasn't one of them, the Idiot Jerk is seeing "Obamagate" as the only sure way of getting his sagging, orange ass re-elected.  Well, that ain't going to work.  Sure, the rabid MAGA heads who worship at his feet will suck that down faster than a free Wild Cherry slurpee from 7 -11, all it's going to do in the end is give them brain freeze.  Of course, that would mean they actually had a functioning brain.
What's even more interesting is that his re-election campaign is buying up $18.6 million in ad space, much of that being spent in Florida, and it's only May.  Sure, there are those who will say "he's got the buckos in the bank, so why not," but it's May.  Biden, on the other hand, is spending about $3.6 million, because it's only May and the election is 6 months away.  Trying to shore up his base, perhaps, and so early in the season?  I'm catching a whiff of  the new Republican scent, "Early Desperation."  I'm sure, if you like cloying, overly sweet perfumes, with more than a hint of sewage, I'm sure this one will be for you.
No cycling tonight.  It's going to be a rest day for the legs, after 8 days and almost 99 miles.
And for those of you who have been waiting, it is Rose Time.


The light dappling on the leaves is the spray I'm using to keep the dreaded 'black spot' at bay.

  2. I don't think a Home Improvement store is safe :). I am getting a job driving an Amazon deliver truck like everyone else.

  6. Yup not working here and the future looks like there is no future, even worse companies are doing massive layoffs, as in ten to twenty thousand extra people being out of work for each lay off. Hard to find another job when you are competing with hundreds of other people.

    1. Though I believe Canada is much better positioned for this recovery than the US... to much greed down here.

  7. I love that rose. I think roses are going to do really well this year. My mothers were full of buds when I was there, and her lavender ice was in full bloom.

    1. It is pretty, isn't it, but like I said to Jennifer, it has absolutely no scent and I really do like the heady perfume of a rose.

  9. That rose is awesome! They’re blooming early?
    And Cheeto is desperate. He’s pushing those ads for the base, of course, because his approval is abysmal. Except with white men. The Caucasity of it all.

    XoXo

    1. The thing about white men is false. In fact many of the blogs your read are written by white men who hate the Idiot Jerk. It is not the Caucasity of it all. That's like saying all Hispanics support Ted Cruz and that's why he gets elected in Texas.

  10. OMG that Rose!!!!!!! I suck at tending Roses, but I sure do Love them. Here we have Fields of them being grown Commercially and driving by them, planted in rows of each Color, is breathtaking! Desperation is quite evident in the White House... plus, on a personal side note, he owes a lot of $$$ to sketchy people abroad, so there's that looming over him when he can't Pony Up when the Notes come due and his Hospitality Industry has circled the drain... I'd love nothing better than for him to lose it ALL... his Karma coming back on him is gonna be very, very bad...
