For those who missed it, the winter solstice happened this morning at 0902. From now until June, our days are going to be getting longer (hurrah!). Tonight, if the skies are clear enough, you should be able to see the brightest star (actually 2 planets) in the past 800 years. Some ding-a-lings have decided they're going to call this the Christmas Star (actually 2 planets) because religion feels the need to take ownership. Me? I think we should all call it The Big Bright Light in the Sky because (and certain groups hate this) a vast majority of the world's population does not celebrate Christmas.
I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

The Big, Bright Light in the Sky
I picked up my Holiday Basket yesterday as I left work. Very nice and filled with goodies. I like baskets that are filled with goodies, but then doesn't everyone.
And last evening I broke down and ordered a Fenix 6 Pro since the government's going to be giving me a little check, emphasis on the size. Conservatives hate spending money, unless they can spend it on themselves. I'm sure they quite happy at only having to give struggling American's $600. They believe you should earn your money, rather than rely on the government... or a massive tax break which they gave to themselves and the 1%.
I find it fascinating that countries all around the world are shutting down air travel to the UK hoping to avoid the Covid strain... except for the United States. Of course, Conservatives see this mutation as just another variation of the flu, nothing more.
Oh, and for those who missed it, the Idiot Jerk's legal team filed another complaint with the Supreme Court yesterday in an effort to overturn the election. This is only to keep their base mollified. The real fun is going to happen on January 6, when Congress has to ratify the election. I understand there is mounting horror in the GOP they are going to have rogue senators object. These fools want to got out looking like bright, shining stars. Wrong, their embarrassing spectacle would make them look like dumb shits on parade.
