Oh my gosh! I slept late today, perhaps because I had a busy day yesterday, that included a bike ride in Flanders. There was laundry, too, and a walk with the dogs, and some time with the aquarium. The later entailed a quick trip to my local PetSmart. While changing the filter, I discovered my inline heater had stopped working. After adjusting the temperature a few times, and uttering a few salty son-of-bitches, I realized I needed a replacement. Rather then purchase another inline heater as that involved water issues, I chose a standard in-tank model. Now the fish are warm and happy.
We had snow last night.
A big Congrats to Elliot Page. Over time he has become more and more politically involved, so I would not be surprised if his future isn't destined to be in public service. I can see him as a very vocal senator.
And there are a lot of headlines swirling around the possibility of the Idiot Jerk in the White House handing out a boatload of pre-emptive pardons. Evidently there is some precedent in that Ford pardoned Nixon before charges could be filed. Blanket pre-emptive pardons don't work. He can't just hand them out to his three oldest children, and squirmy faced Jared, like Christmas presents. And Sean Hannity has recommended he pre-emptively pardon himself... from what? You'd think the Republicans had put some crime family into the White House. (Can you hear me laughing?)
And Billy Barr says "no fraud! no fraud!" (I'm still laughing.) The fact that Billy through his boss under the bus has more to do with saving his own skin then anything. In case Billy hasn't realized it, he just shit away his pre-emptive pardon.
OMG Dave. I'm going to have to consult you about the temperature in my water plants' containers. It gets cold in winter, no matter where I put them and I think that affects my water plants.ReplyDelete
Anyways, Cheeto is pardoning his spawn and Ghouliani. No surprise. He's handing out pardons because HE wants to be pardoned. It's also a flex and you KNOW he loves that. He thinks he's an emperor.
Elliot did surprise me. I had no idea he was trans. I love Page's roles all around and I will re-watch Tales of the City to watch him there again.
And Barr's move is bullshit. I heard he got the probe into who did what in the Russian investigation going so Uncle Joe's AG cannot stop it. I'm kind of glad. I hope they find shit on Cheeto and his minions. It would be fantastic.
The probe is fine because it's believe Steele got much of his information from a Russian agent.Delete
Now Billy is Public Enemy #1 to the WH.ReplyDelete
His loyalty is only skin deep.Delete
Seems strange that he should be considering pre-emptive pardons for people who "never did anything wrong"! And ain't it good to see Barr turn tail!ReplyDelete
I wouldn't be surprised if his next reality show wasn't call Crime FAmily.Delete
I saw that too about the pardons. It also un-nerved me today when I read Ivanka now has the feeling she might want to pursue a career in politics. Lord no. This family is going to be like the Kardashians...they just won't go way.ReplyDelete
Looks like I left in time before the snow came.
She's saying politics because she's hoping to get a job with some kind of immunity.Delete
ain't it fun when the MAGAts eat each other alive?ReplyDelete
Golly Gee, it sure is.Delete
Oh I love Elliot!!ReplyDelete
We had some snow too, not as much as they say we were going to get.
I remember having a fish tank when I was younger. The heating element looked like a long lightbulb stuck into the water. My parents were always afraid we might electrocute ourselves while cleaning the tank--of course that was in the early 80's. I'm sure the heating elements have progressed since then.
Heaters are a lot different now, they're submersible.Delete
