He Got Away With Murder, I Guess

So the jury gave a verdict in the KKKyle Rittenhouse trial. Not guilty, across the board.

I guess there is legal precedent for non-state residents coming into Wisconsin and murdering people. Seems like it’s hunting season for demonstrators year round now. Good job, Wisconsin. I hope you’re all proud of yourselves. Nothing like state sponsored white supremacy and murder. That’s precisely what the founding fathers had in mind, I’m sure.

You don’t need me to add a #sarcasm here, do you? You know that what happened in Wisconsin today is disgusting and evil, right? You’re smart enough to get that from the context. You don’t need me to spell it out for you, right? You can read between the lines. Good.

Life is a Shit Show

Every day it gets more ridiculous. Our fearless fuhrer seamlessly transforms our nation into an episode of the jerry effing springer show.

So first he gets covid, declares he’s cured somehow also he’s immune which means he doesn’t know what the word immune means. Then he goes back to the white house and spoofs a scene from a terrible llyod webber show where he stands on a balcony gasping for air as if he were minutes from death, but yeah he’s immune. How many white house staff members were infected for that idiotic stunt. Next the devil decides to halt the covid stimulus debates until after the election.

On the upside, stephen miller has covid. If trump is evil, stephen miller is evil.

Note: I wrote all of their names in lower case because they are so beneath respect that they don’t deserve capitalization.

I am So Tired

Massachusetts had its 9,000th Covid-19 death today.

The United States of America had its 180,000th death today.

I am so tired of this. I am tired of having a president who ignores 180,000 deaths and over 5,000,000 sick people. I am tired of having a president who incites racial violence on TV every day and I’m tired of seeing my fellow citizens follow his lead and murder people in the streets. Cops, teenage kids, murderers. I’m tired of having a society that is so broken that some of us actually applaud a 17 year old with an assault rifle blowing people away because their skin is the wrong color. I’m tired of inequality based on skin color being okay with people.

Those people have been consumed by hate. I fear that I will be consumed by hatred of them. I’m just tired of it all. I’m tired of corruption and to think that an election in November is going to be anything other than rigged to keep the corruption gravy train rolling is just naive. I want to be hopeful, but I just don’t see it happening.

Some Notes on a Saturday

How long does a modern TV last? This morning Jen started thinking about a new TV. We don’t need a new TV, I said. When did we buy our current living room TV, she asked. Off to the blog I go!

The blog holds all the answers. The new TV was purchased on September 28, 2014. Just shy of six years ago. The blog is wise. The blog knows.

So then we asked how long do TVs tend to last these days? Off to Google Jen goes! 5-7 years. Well, that settles it then. Conspicuous Consumerism dictates that we need a new TV. We’re going to hold off until Christmas… I think. We agreed to that, but Jen is hovering around BestBuy.com which means maybe she won’t be able to wait.

Second Saturday note: UPS again… oh boy. Just when I came to grips with the fact that I was going to have to file a claim with GuitarCenter.com over the amplifier that will never be shipped, UPS updated the tracking number to say that once again (take three) it is on a truck and out for delivery. The estimated delivery date/time is today by 9:00PM. I’m taking bets on what time this afternoon they change that date to Monday. Anyone?

The third Saturday note is the only actually important one. There is a story suggesting that Russia paid bounties to the Taliban for killing American soldiers. It is also being said that trump knew about it and did nothing.

I don’t know if any of it’s true. I’ve only seen it on Twitter. I haven’t read any of the source articles. I don’t know if it is true or not. I just know this:

Their Money or Your Life

Trump and his collaborators are talking about ending the stay at home coronavirus response so that people will go back to work and the economy will recover.

If you thought for a second that your life was more important to them than their donors’ money then you are as big a moron as they think you are.
