I was so excited when I received the notification that a couple comments were made in response to one of my older blog posts. My blog posts don’t elicit many comments. I don’t blame you readers. I make it a point not to comment on anyone’s blog who is so obviously mentally ill. But finally, I was getting the conversation started. The excitement lasted until I read the comment …
So many questions filled my head:
- Did their auto-correct change “ray of sunshine” to “piece of shit?”
- Why is my name not capitalized and enclosed by quotation marks? Am I not Jim?
- Why did Kim end the comment so politely? Maybe because of #1 above?
- Is Kim a disgruntled male with weapons or a hot female who is stalking me? Uh, asking for a friend.
Of course, I’m no stranger to nasty comments as I regularly navigate the waters of Twitter while throwing out anti-Trump chum. At least this comment from Kim Nho didn’t include a wrestling challenge like this Twitter throwdown from Texas Senator Ted Cruz …

I realize that my earlier post today was not very funny. It was more of a cathartic blog/scream for me. Let’s call it a bleam. I just can’t get over our elected legislators siding with Russia, even if some of them are elected by people in Sharthole, Mississippi. No offense to Shartholians.
But Twitter made me smile today. I suggested to @tweakyourpc who is Chris Davis of Make Anagrams Great Again to do a Where’s Mitch anagram. That’s what we are all asking. Mitch McConnell is not putting bills on the Senate floor to reopen the US government, and has been generally hiding out recently, except for voting to lift Russia sanctions. Traitor! Oops, there I go again. Anyway, @tweakyourpc Chris obliged with this gem …
Thanks to Chris for making me smile. I hope you do, too.
The US Senate voted yesterday on whether or not to allow sanctions against Russia to be lifted. All Democratic Senators voted to retain the sanctions. I was pleased to see these Republican Senators vote with the Democrats to retain the sanctions:

For some reason, people have compared Senator Mitch McConnell to a turtle. Well yesterday, McConnell was turtling along like usual, waiting for Senator John McCain to get healthy enough to return to the Senate and vote for the Senate’s Trumpcare bill.
And then, Twitter happened. Was it a Trump tweet?

Mitch McConnell has a busy day planned today. He plans to unleash the latest Senate version of Trumpcare onto the unsuspecting American public today. Then he has a variety of other activities planned today like pulling legs off bugs, delivering foreclosure notices to widows, roasting ants with a magnifying glass, pulling scholarships from some area college students, peeing in a public pool, and cutting the ribbon on a new orphanage with workhouse attached, so there’s no daily commute for the kids! How thoughtful! Finally, he plans to meet with representatives from ADAPT, the national group of activists on behalf of people with disabilities. Hey, that last one actually sounds constructive.

I’ve taken a few days off from blogging as I have re-evaluated my blogging and specifically my Trump-bashing. It has been fun up to now making jokes at the expense of Trump, a political simpleton. But it is becoming obvious that he is being manipulated by Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan, two evil ghouls who have sold their souls in exchange for political contributions and personal wealth. With visible evidence that Trump is showing signs of dementia, this use of Trump as a puppet for the McConnell/Ryan agenda is, well, to steal a line from Trump … Sad!
As I drove back from St. Louis on Tuesday night, I listened to news that Jon Ossoff lost his Georgia congressional race. Four months ago, that would have been no surprise, but momentum and hope built so that his loss felt like being on the receiving end of a gut punch. Topping that was news of the horrible Trumpcare plan being rushed through the Senate that literally will kill people. People will die because of this McConnell/Ryan plan that Trump will rubber stamp because he doesn’t know any better and will do as told, except in regard to the tweeting.

About the only good thing that happened yesterday is while Mitch McConnell moved the Senate forward with the “nuclear option” on the Gorsuch Supreme Court confirmation, Trump decided against the nuclear option in Syria … for now.
My family and I went to a pro-ACA rally/protest yesterday. My wife made pretty, patriotic signs for herself and our youngest child.
Beautiful. Patriotic. Inspiring. Anytime I look at it, I’m moved to suggest my wife quit her job so we can go back on ACA healthcare.
Here’s my crappy sign …
