Well, this should come as no surprise to anyone. It's raining. Again. Yesterday, which was supposed to be warm and humid, you'll notice I'm saying warm, not hot, since the temps were only supposed to go into the low 90s (F), we got rain. We had a lot of rain. Downpours, and they turned into on again, off again showers. If things dry out enough, I'm mowing my lawn tomorrow.
I'm having Brussel sprouts for breakfast because they're chunky with Vitamin C and because I opened the refrigerator door and thought, 'damn, I'd better eat those before they go bad.' Keep in mind, your stomach has no idea what time it is.
Business was slow at the store yesterday, though I did manage to get 2 measures. One is for a tile job. Tile is an expensive installation. Tile is considered an asset to the value of your home, though it doesn't nearly increase the value as hardwood. Most of us know the true value of hard wood.
With all the depressing horse shit going on, I figured I'd post a little video of Sir Paul McCartney, at 79 years of age, performing Band on the Run. Let me repeat his age for those of you who know nothing about aging, he's 79. I love this song. I'm so glad I was able to see him perform this live when he played in Hershey, PA.
I saw that there were protests yesterday, mostly peaceful. There were some gunshots fired at Pride events in both San Francisco and in New York, I believe, and there's not loud indication that bias was pulling the triggers. A number of Pride events became anti-abortion quietly controlled anti-abortion protests. The Cracker Jack Crazies Christians, and their enablers on Fox News had been broadcasting about the approaching violence from liberal extremists. Instead, there was quietude. Intelligent conservatives have begun to mutter this lack of an intense outburst portends to something far worse, the worst trouncing they've ever received at the ballot box.
American will never rid itself of conservatives, so they need to be marginalized, constantly on the run. This begins with local elections. Electing enough Democrat senators to codify Roe v Wade, same sex marriage, and the right to contraceptives will never be enough as long as Clarence Thomas continues to try and prove that he is the strongest, whitest, conservative on the Supreme Court. Red states need to be turned blue. Laws will need to be passed to protect our rights. This needs to be started now, this November. Since the court has said this is up to the states, we need to take back control of the states. We also need to keep a majority in both the House and Senate in order to begin fixing this radically, extremist court that Trump built. Right now, whether the GOP realizes it or not, they're standing still. The time has come for us to light a fire under their asses so we can see how fast and how far they run away.
