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

A Bad Day for Republicans

 Okay, so it's Wednesday.  Again we have sunshine, but then that's not something I reckon I'll get tired of soon.  Let's be honest here, when was the last time you heard anybody wish for a cloudy day?  If the weather people are correct, next week we should be hitting the low 60s (F) for a day or two.  After that, they have us dropping back down to more season temps.

My UGI inspector did his thing yesterday.  A real talkative chap, he felt the need to complain about a customer who needed a police intervention, and even then the inspection failed to take place.  I got to hear how a customer refused to allow him into his house, and waved a pipe at the inspectors, and tried to sic his dog on him.  What happens when the inspector can't do his job?  They turn off your gas.  

Because he managed to get here earlier than I had been expecting, I got in time on both the treadmill and the rowing machine.  I did increase the tension on the rower, moving up a notch to 5, and there was a noticeable difference.  In no time, I had my heart rate up to 130.  I don't know how accurate they are, but according to both the rower and Garmin I burned off 153 calories in 15 minutes.

I signed up for Kinomap, which is an app that lets you select a video you can row to, using down a river, or in a bay.  So, not only will I be riding with Garmin all over the world, I'll be rowing with Kinomap, though mostly in Europe.  I'll have to see if they have any videos of rowing down the Thames.

And, of course, yesterday this happened.

This is the decision I was expecting.  As they Appeals court stated, any other decision would have invalidated the 3 branches of government, and the president would become a dictator.  That is precisely what the Orange Anus wants.  I don't doubt he has wet dreams about being re-elected and then becoming the American version of his blow bro Vlad.  Well, that ain't gonna happen.  He will, as always, appeal to the Supreme Court and they're not gonna touch it.  They will let it stay.  And, if things continue to go as badly for him as they have, his Insurrectionist trial could start in May.  He's trying to get it moved out of Washington, but that's going to be a no go.  

And Nikki Haley came in 2nd in the Nevada primary... 2nd to None of the Above.  Ouch.

Really, yesterday was a truly terrible day for Republicans.  Once again, the House of Representatives, in which they have a slim majority, demonstrated gross incompetence.   You can bet that Trump is behind every one of their bad decisions.  Someone should tell them that everything he touches dies.


  1. Any bad day for Republicans is a good day for America.

  2. Inept idiots.
    They voted when they thought one Dem was having surgery. Tricky Mo Fos.
    And Cheeto got slapped. I’m worried about SCOTUS tho…



    1. Their decision will be one that tries to make it look like they've not been bought for the price of 2 drinks and some pretzels.
