Bluntness

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

Things Change

Yesterday was Monday.  I went back to work, but only for a day.  I'm scheduled off today.  Being scheduled off is very nice.  After today I get to work 4 consecutive days, however then I'm scheduled off for 3 consecutive days.  I like that a lot.
Monday was a momentous day.  The Supreme Court dumped a turd in the Idiot Jerk's hat.  Conservatives shrieked their hatred at the Conservative Judge who they feel betrayed them.  You see they believed he would betray the Constitution in favor of religion.  They were wrong.  We are a Democracy, something Conservatives and Republicans look at with great disdain.  Sucks to be them, doesn't it.  No matter how hard they try to ratchet the country into a small, conservative cube they fail because we as a people are round, we are oval, we have angles, we have curves.  Our depth and height exceeds their pale little blocky beliefs.  We are more then they will every be.  The fight is not over, but they reel because one of their own has bloodied their nose.
There was a really interesting article in Politico on how Republicans believe they're going to win the November election.  A number of them are predicting a landslide... in favor of the Idiot Jerk.  This is funny... an example of true denial.  I had to laugh when one of them said "the pandemic is over and the economy is improving."  They see only what they want to believe.  The same thing happened with Nixon, Republicans just not being able to believe a truth they didn't dictate, a reality they didn't write.
Another funny thing I read was that there is a group of Cracker Jack Crazy Christians who believe the pandemic and the crashing economy are signs that 'The End' is near.   They evidently never heard about The Spanish Flu, which was far worse for life, and limb, and the world's economy.  And what about the Black Plague?  They must have been sleeping through those classes, otherwise they'd know that pandemic ushered in The Dark Ages.  Oh, that's right, they were saying the same thing back then... and were just as wrong.
Today is a brighter day then yesterday.  No matter how desperately some might try and freeze time, lock us into a permanence which only satisfies their own selfish needs, change happens.  Life will continue evolving.  There is no stopping it.

  4. That was some good news and one the left trump speeches for the most part.

    My friend over in the Democrat headquarters in Doylestown is still worried. He's still not 100% convinced trump will loss. Dems have to get up and off their ass to vote. He said it's said when the bucks county liberal republicans had more votes for Hillary then members of our own party. They have been the ones their targeting now to vote by going door to door. I too have two Dems to convince.i have another now almost convinced to vote Biden. My basic tact is Do you want to live and want a safe country to live in?

  5. You know the Wingnuts are always off. They’ve been predicting the end of times for centuries. Still, they’ll vote for the Orange Menace in a heartbeat because they have no morals.
    And SCOTUS is still stacked, mind you, with the alcoholic frat boy and Alito. The Repugs are counting on voter suppression, Russian interference and lies to win in November. Should not happen.

    1. They're counting on a lot of things, including a Fairy God Demon to turn Gorsuch into a pumpkin. Ain't gonna happen.

  6. Did you see Dump's speech before signing the executive order today where he "strongly opposes the radical and dangerous efforts to DEFEND and dissolve our police department". A bit Freudian don't you think!

    1. I avoid watching him at all costs. I just turn him rather than torture my brain.

  7. That "landslide" article was amazing to read. Can they really think a landslide? Seriously?
