The more we find out about how elections are run the more it looks like presidents are installed with no real input from the people.

With the economy the way it was I don't believe barry won his 2nd term, he had it given to him. Same way they were going to give it to hellery this time around. Apparently they didn't cheat enough to overcome the disgust of the American people. Same thing like when Ron and Rand Paul ran for office. Lots of supporters for them but the MSM wouldn't cover them, at all. Even in the debates when they did good they didn't get mentioned in the news. It was almost like someone in the background was working diligently to make sure the Paul's stayed out of the news and got no attention.

But, that's just the tin foil in me speaking.

A perfect example is Beta Odork, and the black Gillum dude from FL, and then take John James. The two were worthless nobodies who’s race and perceived race was all they had. James was the real rockstar and got zero national coverage. Crooked.

It baffled me how John James didn't get more play. That guy was awesome. The only reason Gillum did well was the anti Trump crowd really hates DeSantis and DeSantis ran a crap campaign.

Did it really? These are the same people calling for impeachment (pretty much since day 1) of a president who was duly elected and do so every-time the guy so much as farts...

In fact every day you wake up and can kiss your wife good bye in English and go to work to make a good living of your choice you should be glad he and many others put the country before themselves when it was needed
True, I wouldn't, but....

I'm very happy for what I have in this country. Especially the more I really get to know about true Third World issues. It's incredible.


However, I never liked the Bush family, especially Sr. That guy was involved in every disgusting, fvxxed up thing this country pulled off over the last 60 years, and there was plenty of it. Along with the good.

But that guy was pure evil, in my opinion.

Until Trump, all politicians have been basically the same. The agenda was the same. Didn't matter if it was a Bush or an Obama in the WH, it was all the same.

DT broke the system.

All righty then. I hate politics.

Can we leave that stuff in the basement and get back to things that are more fun to hate?

Doesn't matter what it is. As long as it's inconvenient your phone will ring.

I could be in the shop all day preparing jointery, no big deal getting everything all ready for crunch time while epoxy is setting and I need to get everything clamped quick... As soon as the epoxy is mixed... Phone call.

Get out of the truck ready to say hi to homeowners, phone will ring.

It's inevitable. I actually started getting out of the truck with the phone in the cab so I have to miss it until I get back to it.

I leave my phone with no alerts. I check it often. I'll get back to you.

Was a little different when I didn't have buffers.

Thank God I took it with me to the planning advisory meeting this am or if of fallen asleep. Ct saved me. Lol. 3.65 hrs and nothing accomplished lol

During the day...I'll answer at my convenience.

From 8 pm until 8 am, it's set not to ring, light up, beep or anything...unless it's a "starred" number...family, a few friends and a few old customers.

If I'm feeling lonely, all I have to do is put on latex gloves and start mixing paint or working up stain samples. That's always guaranteed to make the phone ring.

Re: Things I Hate (2)


Go to start truck this morning all it does is click, 99 PSD 4x4 dually, Just put a new Napa starter on 6mos ago. Check things batteries good , but can't get it to crank jumping at sol on fender. Whip the starter off run to Napa, across town of course, Tell the counter whom have know for yrs, does not work. Looks it up goes gets me a new one, no testing or other questions. Good thing Lifetime warranty , made the extra cost worth it, I do get a shop discount which helps a lot. So anyhow puts me about 1 1/2 behind this morning. But at least is was in the yard and not somewhere else.
