I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

What's in a Name

 Another Monday, another work week.  The weather's supposed to be nice, that's defined as temps in the low to mid 80s (F) during the day, with night time temps falling into the low to mid 60s (F).  These temps are not normal August temps for us here in Central PA.  These are the days that are called the Dog Days.  I have to keep reminding myself that last summer our temps were much warmer.

Yesterday was oh... so slow at work.  I did manage to make my sales goal for the week, not that my measly numbers are going to make anybody happy.  I was talking to my ASM and he was venting his frustration because things beyond our control were effecting our sales figures and corporate wasn't taking them into account.  I commiserated with him for a while and then reminded him that when it comes to sales, it doesn't make a difference why a store isn't making plan, corporate needs a scapegoat which is why the store always gets blamed.  Always.

I made a little video about my team of characters, Eli, Max, Bobby, and Jules.  This gives you a little bit more information about them and their names.

And I'm wondering just how tumultuous this week is going to be for the Republican party.  Last week they had some bad moments, and they had some worse moments. I saw an interesting comparison between Nixon and Trump in that Nixon had Ehrlichman, Haldeman, and Dean, while Trump has the valet, the pool boy, and the geek; can we talk lack of sophistication here?

A low point was probably Sammy Alito admitting to the Wall Street Journal that he believed himself, and the other members of the Supreme Court to be demi-gods, unfettered by any rules and regulations Congress might attempt to apply to their ethics.

Though honestly, I have to admit that Ronnie DeSantis and his team doubling down on his new education agenda stating that some slaves benefitted from being slaves.  I sit wondering what black Republicans must be thinking about this white guy, and his team, telling them that their great, great grandparents, and the seven generations of grandparents before them, actually benefited from being slaves, that they learned something that helped them in their personal lives... as slaves.  


  1. And one of the assfucks on Fox also said Jews in concertation camps benefited from learning a trade too.
    Please, for the love of the goddess, someone explain to me how anyone with a brain that fires on even one cylinder can be so fucking stupid.
    And then take these Fox assfucks, the Florida Dept. of Education, and Ron DeSantis, and enslave them, or lock them up in a concertation camp for just a week, and see how they feel afterwards.
    Then tell them all to fuck off.

    1. They are defining themselves in ways only a Cultist could love.

  2. Ohhh love the insider's notes about the characters!
    And you know Jabba the Orange is so convinced he's untouchable he'd just use whomever is close by to then throw them under the bus. The pool boy it is.
    As for Alito screaming from the rooftops that he's untouchable? Expand that Court!! Now.
    Meatball Ron? Gaffe after gaffe. Racist, sexist, moronic and lacks charisma and a personality. He's the perfect repug.


    1. Yeah, I thought the notes were amusing. And I think it's rather amusing to see Conservatives ripping off their mask because they believe they're untouchable.

  3. The video was nice (and the sound didn't overpower it either)!
