These are fractious times. Sometimes, you need to manifest some control your spiritual orientation.
On this Saturday, this is how i set my ship on the right foot.
It is a simple thing, made really well. It possesses some magical powers if done and consumed right. I snagged a coffee and an orange juice and let the goodness wash over and slow things down a bit.
I opened up Twitter to see a bunch of MAGA types that I don’t follow screaming about investigating the Biden family, the injustice of the charges against the former President, the need to charge previous presidents and presidential candidate, the “weaponization” (a personal favorite) of various departments of the government to do things they don’t approve of, Dr. Fauci, how horrible any gun control might be and pretty much anything that might interfere with life as they want it to be. It’s ironic that all these congressional acolytes have time for all this tweeting when you think they would be more concerned with actual congressional business. You would think that would be more demanding and not leave so much time for social media. And perhaps, you’d think that would matter to the buffoons, er, voters who put these people in place to start with.
But, it is a complex world. As I sit in a window seat with my breakfast, I observe a young couple pull their car so close to the next one that that driver is boxed in. The couple ignored all the space involved to get their Saturday supplies from the bakery across the street,
Anyhoo, here’s where I sit. There is a lot of belly aching on the political party front, a lot of people screaming impeach so much I can’t help but wonder if they really know what the word means.
Government is a simple thing, I mean I look to it to solid healthcare, some nice roads and infrastructure, world class education, good social services, and a safety net for those less fortunate. You know, all the stuff that we pay taxes for. Not subsidies and tax breaks for the rich. I look to them to protect social security as I have been paying into it since I was 15,
Instead, two legislators in Tennessee have been removed from their jobs for, trying to do their jobs and actually represent their constituents. That is nuts that can be the case and if they can lose their jobs, why are Ted Cruz, Josh Hawley, Lauren Bobert, Marjorie Taylor Green, Lindsay Graham and many others employed? I have no problem with their not being a fan of the current president, but do a job, have an agenda other than just opposing the other guys. Rand Paul wants to fight Anthony Fauci. I don’t get why. Covid was a series of unknowns. The good doctor passed advice, recommendations, but he didn’t close anything. Different companies, agencies and municipalities did that on their own. Rand also forgets this started under a GOP administration. An administration that was only republican because its candidate thought only they would be stupid enough to follow so unquestionably. Give the Dork a L’Orange credit, he was right about that one.
Yet, the speaker of the house is one of his major lapdogs and seems to think acting tough on Twitter is successfully convincing us that he is a tough, stand up guy.
None of these fools seem to remember/care that they are in public service jobs. There is a shameless lust for power, but no agenda, no idea, no concept as to what to do and the idea of actually helping citizenry isn’t even in the conversation. We are just in the business of wrecking one another
It’s like they’ve never had a good bagel sandwich
