We Already Knew What Kind Of A Person Paul Ryan Was

And now we know his least for his price for really putting out.

Another Week I Wish Hadn't Happened

To end on a personal note this week. Goddamn. So far, knock on wood, my water pipes don't show sings of freezing or bursting, but no thanks to Mother Nature, who really did do a number on us. 2018 is coming in quite lousy. Hope that means there's nowhere to go but up.

Have a good weekend.

Moving The Goalposts

Call it what you want -- moving the goalposts, working the ref, tilting the playing field -- but yeah, I can't imagine a Democratic President getting away with what's become routine for Orange Narcissus.

Guess Which One Was Subpoenaed Today?

And having been dumped by Emperor Little Fingers, Racist Bannon doesn't have a lot of incentive to keep quiet.

FYI, on a personal note, severe cold weather has me stressed. Oh, I'll do alright, but the house isn't built for this. Am pretty worried. Doing what I can. If posting becomes more sporadic, it's because I'm dealing with stuff. Wish me luck.

For Freedom and Justice

The older I get, the more I appreciate people like Martin Luther King, Jr. It takes genuine courage...

Darrell Issa Calls It A Sunrise

Don't let the door hit you on the way out...

Acting Presidential

Wow, so this is what it's come down to: not drooling, swearing, vomiting, bragging about sexual assault and/or spewing racist invective means "became President of the United States today."

Day Off

Back tomorrow.

Pumpkin Will Be Served...

Or will it? 

Note: personal issues might have me recycling or not posting at all for some days this week. I know it's not much -- one a day -- and I could thank everyone who stops by personally (except for the bots who spike my traffic every now and again, apparently), but...if you do stop by, thanks, and wish me luck. Cheers.

Guess this week could've been worse...

But minus a bomb cyclone, can only hope 2018 has nowhere to go but up.

Speaking of bomb cyclone, say hello to global warming...not endless summer, but winter storms that more closely resemble summer hurricanes. Sure, one weather event is only that, but it's also a preview of the new normal. How do with deal with this every winter?

And this is the damned coldest-for-the-longest I recall since moving back almost 20 years ago. I like a break from heat and humidity as much as anyone, but geez.

Oh, and DJT's still an ass. But you already knew that.

Here's to the week I wish could've been cancelled. 51 to go...

Have a good weekend.

Class Acts

Here's hoping they both lose...

Just A Quick Reminder

Otherwise, got nothing today, alas. As I'm sure you know, it's cold by local standards, and my holiday was totally shot to holes. Spent it on pins and needles worrying about the house, the heat...the water.

On that note, looks like the pressure valve on the water heater picked a hell of time to act up. Fortunately it's not a castrophe -- yet, knock on wood -- and by blind luck I found a plumber who's available...tomorrow. Hope for the best.

In the meantime, this was something I put together a while back and haven't had a chance to use. So...the first for 2018. I guess the way this year's started, nowhere to go but up? Damn sure hope so...
