Short Ribs and Random Thoughts July 31 2017

We missed a week due to a near-nervous breakdown I experienced from the dual evils of having my TIVO go out again so I could only watch TV in the kitchen and, concurrently, a totally unrelated mishap involving my computer KEYBOARD which stopped functioning. The emails kept coming in but I couldn’t delete them or respond. Wonderful Cory from Cornerstone Computers fixed the keyboard in about a minute but it took Suddenlink SIX DAYS to fix the TIVO. I heard from four other people in the area that theirs was out too but S’link hates the term “outage”.

-You want loyalty? Get a dog.  Here’s POLITICO’S  read on Trump’s record on loyalty. Read it HERE.

-Have I railed  lately about the Zoo charging $100 to attend the Zootini?  I cant recall how much it was last year but I bought tickets for myself and a friend and didn’t think twice about it so it couldn’t have been that much. I  understand the  canopy will be expensive but sheese!  I was on the Zoo board when they were deciding whether to charge admission at all.  Those were the days!  Look for them to propose a big hike in admission fees. Well, I propose it’s time for the rest of the County, not just Eureka, to bear the cost of this REGIONAL tourist attraction.

-If Jeff Sessions isn’t the LEAST impressive person the in Federal government,  I don’t know who is.  There are counter clerks at Six Rivers Forest with more presence and composure. There are TSA baggage inspectors at the airport who inspire more confidence. But NO ONE including Jeff Sessions should be humiliated in the way Trump is humiliating him. Is he a masochist? We already know what Trump is…….BTW I hear that if you Google “Scaramucci divorce” you get some interesting stuff. 

-BTW if you listened carefully, Trump’s announcement on firing Priebus/Hiring Kelly reflected his thinking perfectly.  He referred to Kelly as a “Star”, reflecting his belief that he’s still a reality TV star, and referred to Priebus as “a good man”, meant to be damning with faint praise.  IF he ever figures out that he’s supposed to be the President of the United States, he’ll realize that “a good man” in government is ten times more valuable than a “star”. 

-What is the idea behind the stupid Sam Jackson commercials where he’s singing “Let’s Stay Together”? HE CAN’T SING!!!  Was that the whole point, to show that there are Black guys that cant sing?  We already knew that.

-Will Kid Rock run for  President? Swear to God he’s more qualified than Don the Con. The Kid (Robert Richie) even has a similar bio.  Both were  born into wealth (the Kid’s father owned several auto dealerships) and, like Trump, he borrowed money from the old man to start his career ($7500 to record an album). He’s not been known to file serial bankruptcies like Trump so he probably knows more about business  and government. He’s not quite as crazy as Ted Nugent, says he supports gay marriage. Maybe he’ll  reconcile with Pamela Anderson so she can be our First Lady. No crazier than what’s going on now.

-ANOTHER BOS SCREWUP- Ain’t it wonderful to hear that, 12 years after entering into a consent agreement, the County is finally going to abide by the ADA?  This County is very anti-ADA,  a function of poor education. Jason Singleton was either hounded out of town or left for greener pastures so I don’t know who you go to to file an ADA suit. There are several prominent businesses in flagrant violation  that need to be sued.  This is the same BOS, more or less, that brought us the 12-year GPU update and who hired an incompetent as Public Defender.  We STILL don’t know why he was hired. Everyone on the BOS, with the exception of Mike Wilson,  has had at least  one term already. ALL of them should move on when their current term ends.  It’s not supposed to be a lifetime job!

Just one more thought- who would you want next to you  in a foxhole,   Donald Trump or John McCain?  I thought so.

END
