Can you believe it? February is past half over? Spring is really just around the corner. Forecasters said I was going to wake up to a crusty coat of icy, sleety, snow. Maybe in your part of the world. Outside the temp is a nearly balmy 34 (F). The remnants of the past few storms are slowly melting away. This is fine with me. I don't mind winter, but I do long for a return to the more comfortable temps of spring, days when neither the furnace nor the Central Air need to be turned on.
I had a customer call yesterday about returning pieces of vinyl sheet we had cut for him. We had some serious server problems, so I told him our system was down. He hung up before I could tell him we don't take back vinyl that has been cut to size unless there is a manufacturers defect. When customers hear this, they lie and blame the store, saying the vinyl was cut too short. There is a certain breed of customer who, when faced with the choice of either paying for the cost of his own mistake, or getting a refund by lying, will always lie. For those who don't know, we call these people Republicans.
Saturday morning, while I was sitting on the sofa in the writing room editing, Biggie decided to join me. There are times when I think I post more pictures of Lilly and Seig, so, grabbing my phone, I took one of Biggie. Keep in mind, his head is about the size of a small watermelon. Here he is:
|He's ready for his close-up, Mr. DeMille|
On yesterday's entry, Maddie commented about her feelings regarding the Republicans failure to vote guilty on the failed presidents 2nd impeachment. Keep in mind, 7 chose to side with the Democrats. That's amazing. Everybody knows that had there been a secret vote, he would have been found guilty. Still there are concerns regarding his acquittal. While at lunch, I saw this article in The Guardian illuminating an article in the Wall Street Journal, owned by the Conservative Rupert Murdoch. The numbers are fascinating. 58% of Americans feel the failed president is guilty of fueling the January 6 insurrection. That number is not Democrats. Nope. That total represents over 330 million Americans. 57% of Republicans say the Loser should run again. The article goes at great length to emphasize that number equates to the minority party. On a good day, Republicans make up 30% of all voters. Basically, 57% of that 30% ( on a good day) want him to run again. One sentence that is repeated a number of times in the article is 'Democrats will win.' This is what happens if the lying sack of shit runs, or back a loyalist, or simply back a Republican. 'Democrats will win.' Americans are furious. As a result, Republican voices will get louder and louder as they struggle to drum out the truth.
