Okay, so while I'm away from the computer the world continues to spin itself into a miasma of crap. I keep hoping for a bright piece of news, but no such luck.
Newsom is still governor, thus proving either that the majority of people in CA are batshit crazy or elections are no longer free. Or both. Could be a tremendous case of Stockholm Syndrome on a statewide scale.
I don't get it, but I am damn glad I don't live there. And all hugs and stuff to my remaining CA friends who, I assume, are unable to flee for reasons of their own.
OCrazio wore a dress that said 'Tax the rich' to a gala event where the ticket cost was $30K each. And the rich people she was hobnobbing with loved her for it. They must've or they would've kicked her out. Well, they either love her or hate themselves so much they think she's right. Someone on FB intimated that OCrazio must have balls the size of NY to wear a dress like that to an event filled with rich people. I don't think it's balls. I like she knows full well she won't be attacked or even chastised for promoting the idea. Socialism stands on the bodies of those they've trained to hate themselves.
Norm MacDonald died. :shrug: I never thought he was that funny.
I read something the other day... Biden (or his handlers) said food prices are definitely not up. Well, not up if you don't count MEAT... And produce is at the same price it was at the end of last year. You know, year end prices are the highest prices of any year because it's WINTER and plants are kind of on vacation during winter. We haven't even reached the end of the growing season when produce is plentiful and prices should be at their lowest point of the year. I shudder to think of what they'll be at the end of this year. Those of us who actually buy groceries KNOW food prices are higher. I paid over $2 for a pint of strawberries when they're usually well under $2 at this time of year. Go sell your Shinola somewhere else Biden-ites.
Gas here is $2.79. Which I understand is still lower than most other parts of the country, but that's because MO doesn't tax the hell out of everything. January 5th, gas was $1.78. January 7th, it spiked up to $2.58. But they want us to believe the rising price of gas isn't the fault of our benevolent overlords. Feh.
If you read my post yesterday, you already heard about the dearth of tires around here. WTF is up with that? I bet you can guess my theory as to why.
Bette Midler is calling for women to stop having sex with men until the TX abortion thing is overturned. I saw a photo of some morbidly obese woman holding a sign saying that she is refusing sex for the same reason. I'm not sure what men are clamoring to have sex with these types of women, but whatever. As others have pointed out, abstinence is the best form of birth control and the easiest way to cut down on the number of unnecessary pregnancies anyway. So if the idea is fewer abortions, then the liberals are doing their job for them. And what happened to the idea of Safe Sex? Unwanted pregnancy is just one of the many reasons to make sure the gift is wrapped before you accept it.
I'm pro 'mind your own damn business', by the way. I'm also pro-'don't be stupid'. If you're having sex with random, anonymous partners and not using a condom, that's just stupid. AIDS is still a thing, isn't it? Herpes, the clap, etc.? Don't be stupid and you don't have to worry about any of that. If you're not being stupid and an OOPS happens (or it's due to rape), get it taken care of immediately and you don't have to worry about the whole '6 weeks' thing. (Yes, there are other extenuating and rare cases, but I'm not going to detail them all here or you'd still be reading this post next week.)
For me, I'm here slumping boxes and getting grubby dirty every day. I have an incredibly tan, I'm losing poundage, and the muscles and stamina are improving every day. Life is good. And as long as people leave me the hell alone, it will continue to be good.
Nuff said. Peace out.
