Well, I'm hoping that more gets accomplished today than yesterday. While things did get done, time became freewheeling with no restraints. Yes, I did get my car inspected. That took 3 hours, rather than the allotted 90 minutes. There were 2 cars ahead of me when I got to the dealership. Normally, they run people through fast. Not yesterday. There were evidently issues with the first car, so I sat waiting for 15 minutes are line of cars, also there for either inspections or service, grew behind me. I finally sat down in the waiting room 20 minutes later and waited. Almost 2 hours later, I was told they were finishing up the emissions testing and my car would be ready shortly. An hour later (that's right, an hour) my car was fully inspected. That's a 3 hour wait, and my schedule for the day was blown up. To compensate, the dealership charge me nothing. The told me that since this was the 2nd time I'd had to deal with complications getting serviced, they were making the oil change, the tire rotation, and the inspection complimentary. Still, as I said, my day was now terribly out of sync.
I did drive down to That Fish Place and pick up 4 plecos, two for each tank. They're yellow, and so cute.
And, while I was waiting for my car to be inspected, the electrician called. The electric work is being done on 11/22. They could have done it on the 11/8 (my birthday), but I have a physical down at the Lebanon VA that morning.
Muse has out a Halloween video. I like Muse. They may be too rock and roll for some people. This is me doing my bit and letting you watch it. Enjoy.
And Fetterman debated Oz last evening. I didn't watch. Evidently, Fetterman had some issues with word choice since he's still recovering. Oz, on the other hand was slick and smarmy. While conservatives are trying to make hay out of Fetterman's verbal mis-steps, Oz shit in his pants with one terrible statement which most of you have probably already seen. Oz said, regarding abortion, that any decision needs to include, the mother, her physicians, and local politicians. That's right, he wants local politicians to be involved in the decision making process. That comment is not reverberating well.
Finally, there is a lot of chatter about polls either in the process of dying, or already being dead. My opinion, they're mortally wounded. There is a certain group who will try and use them, but polls require honesty to work, and that is not happening, and probably will never happen again. This is how things change.
Polls, which were pretty much useless from the get-go, have become so politicized that they are now absolutely useless. I could sit here at home and just call random phone numbers while eating bon bons and claim it was a poll and there are those who would accept it as gospel.ReplyDelete
That is pretty much what toll takers do. Computers generate a random selection, and truthfully, most people don't answer their phones. The ones that do answer are totally unreliable.Delete
I was out for dinner with birthday festivities so I didn't see any of the debate, I did read those comments about fetterman and I also saw where he must have flip-flopped on a couple of issues which ruffled some Democrats. And Oz wants politicians involved in the decision making? Politicians are generally busy a woman would have the baby or the abortion by time they come around. That's the most ridiculous thing I've ever heard.ReplyDelete
Oz's comment is getting more news than Fetterman's performance.Delete
I had a manager who was fond of saying “Figures lie and liars figure”…numbers can be manipulated to appear to mean anything we want. That’s what these polls represent.ReplyDelete
The anonymity of polls is a breeding ground for liars, Republicans learned this years ago.Delete
Oz actually said that???? Yeah sure, I'd definitely want politicians involved in my decision to have an abortion or not!ReplyDelete
Yes, he actually did say that, dumbass.Delete
I meant that he's a dumbass.Delete
Yes, a woman should think about abortion, ask her doctor about the option, and then call her Congressman to get his or her Oaky? Fuck that.ReplyDelete
While Republicans are going on about Fetterman, most Americans hearing Oz's comment are saying "What the Fuck?"Delete
Pools are just not good anymore.ReplyDelete
And I just saw the Dems using Oz's statement in a commercial. Good move. He's so fucking smarmy.
Love Muse. Saw them in concert and managed to get a hoodie in their merch shop. They're cool.
I'm jealous. I'd really like to see Muse in concert.Delete
