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:

Bolton’s Book

Are you going to read Bolton’s Book? Forgiving that the scumbag fascist stole the name from a Hamilton song, I still don’t think I want to read it.

Under normal circumstances, I would jump at the chance to read the inside dirt on the trump fascist regime, especially if it was written by someone who worked for him. In this case though… I don’t think I want to.

On the one hand, I read a review that says the writing is terrible. That is enough to turn me away. I don’t want the experience of reading the book to be painful when the subject matter is already super painful.

Mostly though… I just can’t get over that we knew all of this dirt was out there before the impeachment vote and the fascist collaborators in the senate ignored it all and didn’t subpoena him. That fact is so disgusting to me that I just can’t get past it.

Not to imply that I would ever pay money for something that Bolton would profit from. In this case I don’t even think I would read a pirated copy of the book. Screw that nazi.

The Stir Crazy Files – Episode 7

It’s been a week and a half, can I get used to this already?  Come on, this is stupid.

My normal-life telecommuting day is Thursday.  New episodes of Star Trek Picard come out on Thursdays.

A few minutes ago I was shaving… why?  I don’t know.  As I was shaving I thought to my idiot self, I’m working from home today so there is a new Star Trek Picard to watch before work.  Sweet!

Wrong.

It’s Wednesday.  It’s my eighth consecutive telecommuting day.  Why the hell can’t I stop thinking every single effing day is Thursday?  Brain, would you get on this please?  I’m tired of being disappointed over no new Picard every single solitary day!  Enough already!

And what the hell am I gonna do when Picard is over?  I should have three more weeks of The Walking Dead followed by the premier of the new spin off.  Wrong.  It’s two more weeks and then nothing.  The season finale of The Walking Dead isn’t finished and it won’t be until after this all clears up.  It has been delayed indefinitely.  The new series is also still in post production so they are pushing that off indefinitely too.  Same with (at least some) of the CW DC Comics shows.  The final episodes are being delayed until it’s all over.  Bloody hell!

That’s all right though, our schmuck of a president say’s all of the restrictions will be lifted by Easter.  He said it would be so great to see all of the churches full.  When I heard that I realized what his goal was.  He doesn’t want to be remembered as a nazi.  He wants to be remembered as a great nazi.  Therefore he is going to arrange for the death of millions of Americans.  He’s going to go down in history as the first great mass murderer of the 21st century.  Why should hitler have all the fun, right?

Our president is evil.  He’s going out of his way to demonstrate it each and every day.

Okay, so this goofy post about feeling stir crazy got a little heavy right there.  It’s okay.  It needed to be said.

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.

Let the Impeachment Trial Begin

So we’re underway.  The third impeachment trial in US history.  The first of the three that will be a total and complete farce.

Our senate took oaths to be impartial.  Isn’t that cute?  The republican leadership has already said they will collaborate with the white house, and they took “oaths” to be impartial.

When the collaborators do their job to rubber stamp their fuhrer’s desired outcome, can we then impeach every single one of them for breaking their oath?  Does the idea of an oath even have meaning anymore?

Sean Spicer Needs to Lose His Job – 4/11/17 Edition

I can’t even put it into words.  The level of stupidity is beyond anything I’ve ever witnessed by a public speaker before.  It’s astounding.  I have a hard time believing it, really.

To say that Adolf Hitler never used chemical weapons… Is Zyklon B not a chemical?  Is it not a weapon?  Is that what Mr Spicer was trying to say when he continually argued his point?  Then to say Hitler never used chemical weapons on his own people?  How many dead German Jews does it take before one accepts that he used chemical weapons on his own people?  One Thousand?  One Million?  What’s the definition, Sean?  Please share your reasoning with the rest of the Nation.

This is unforgivable.  The fact that the fascist piece of shit president didn’t fire him IMMEDIATELY tells us all we really need to know about this administration, doesn’t it?

I can’t believe that this happened today.  During Passover, no less.  I can’t believe this is what has become of my country.

Trump is a Fascist Idiot – 3/24/17 Edition

Donny Cheeto Fascist and Paul Vichy France Ryan got their political asses kicked today and I am loving every second of it.  It was beautiful.  The look on Vichy Paul’s face  as he told the nation that the great billionaire’s tax break bill that most people are calling the trumpcare healthcare bill (is “care” the right word considering 24 million or so people would lose their coverage?) didn’t have enough votes to pass so they pulled it from the House session!

Glorious!

Now I understand that the fascists and their collaborators have control of the white house, the house, and the senate and that eventually they will destroy the entire United States population.  That doesn’t matter today.  Right now… today… The fascists have failed.  They were the losers we know and hate, through and through.

Take that, you fascist cheeto piece of shit.

Trump is a Fascist Idiot – 3/19/17 Edition

Did that fascist shit head really say publicly that Germany owes us money for NATO?  Is he really that stupid?  Does he have no idea how NATO works?  He grew up during the cold war, he should have learned how NATO works by osmosis.  He should have got it just by breathing.

The man is insufferably clueless.  His existence makes me want to vomit.  Germany owes the US money… what a moron.  Screw you, you half witted fascist cheet-o.
