What’s Going On

Besides me feeling like seriously big trucks have run over me many times, that is. I am wondering if I did have the virus in December and am suffering from aftereffects. I doubt I’ll ever know, but I am really over feeling like this. Day before yesterday I unloaded and reloaded the dishwasher, with a long rest between the two, and that was the first day in a week or more that I had that much physical wherewithal to do it. Yesterday I boiled eggs and made egg salad, another big accomplishment for me. If you are healthy, you cannot imagine what it’s like to be unable to do the most basic, easiest of tasks that most people don’t even have to think about. I was in too much pain and too exhausted to eat the egg salad after I made it, so had it a few hours later, after a long lie-down with my kindle.

From The Daily Kos

” Mail is going undelivered for no reason other than Trump’s postmaster general doesn’t want it delivered
As a result, Americans are going without vital medicine
Farmers are also suffering, losing thousands of chicks in the mail backlog Trump’s created
Meanwhile, Trump is threatening to send law enforcement to polling locations on Election Day
And universities are closing within weeks of reopening as the coronavirus continues to spread out of control

This week in Trump’s America was a series of crises of his own making. But Senate Republicans took no action to address them. They didn’t even come to Washington. Instead, they continued a summer recess as Mitch McConnell cast doubt on whether they’d ever do anything at all.”

*****I honestly cannot understand why anyone would vote for these people, and yet it seems that many of us plan to. Scary. Very, very scary.*****

From GQ, things said about the orange man before these guys drank the kool-aid.

Paul Ryan

On Trump’s proposed Muslim ban: “What was proposed yesterday is not what this party stands for, and more importantly it’s not what this country stands for. Not only are there many Muslims serving in the armed forces, dying for this country, there are Muslims serving right here in the house, working to uphold and defend the constitution.”

On Trump’s refusal to denounce the KKK: “If a person wants to be the nominee of the Republican Party, there can be no evasion and no games. They must reject any group or cause that is built on bigotry. This party does not prey on people’s prejudices.”

Marco Rubio

“We’re on the verge of having someone take over the conservative movement who is a con artist.”

“I mean this is a guy that’s taken Trump airlines bankrupt. Trump vodka, nobody wanted it. Trump mortgage, was a disaster. Trump university was a fraud.”

“Has spent a career of sticking it to working people.”

“This boiling point that we have now reached has been fed largely by the fact that we have a frontrunner in my party who has fed into language that basically justifies physically assaulting people who disagree with you.”

“I believe Donald Trump as our nominee is going to shatter and fracture the Republican Party and the conservative movement.”

The most “vulgar person to ever aspire to the presidency.”

Chris Christie

“It’s not going to happen. It’s the wrong message to send, and it’s not going to be effective. Always beware of the candidate for public office who has the quick and easy answer to a complicated problem.”

“We do not need to endorse that type of activity, nor should we. You do not need to be banning Muslims from the country. That’s, in my view, that’s a ridiculous position and one that won’t even be productive.”

“Showtime is over. We are not electing an entertainer-in-chief. Showmanship is fun, but it is not the kind of leadership that will truly change America.”

Ted Cruz

“Utterly amoral.”

“This man is a pathological liar. He doesn’t know the difference between truth and lies. He lies practically every word that comes out of his mouth.”

“A narcissist at a level that I don’t think this country has ever seen.”

“A serial philanderer.” (Source)

He “describes his battle with venereal disease as his own personal Vietnam.”

Carly Fiorina

“Donald, sorry, I’ve got to interrupt again. You would know something about pathological.”

“Donald Trump reminds me of the Kim Kardashian of politics.”
Lindsey Graham

“The more you know about Donald Trump, the less likely you are to vote for him. The more you know about his business enterprises, the less successful he looks. The more you know about his political giving, the less Republican he looks.”

“You know how you make America great again? Tell Donald Trump to go to hell.”

“He’s a race-baiting, xenophobic, religious bigot. He doesn’t represent my party. He doesn’t represent the values that the men and women who wear the uniform are fighting for. … He’s the ISIL man of the year.”

*****And suddenly, it is pouring rain. Yes!!!! :)*****
