09:09 – It was 48.2F (9C) when I took Colin out at 0645 this morning, cloudy and breezy. After a beautiful day yesterday, cooler weather, rain, and possible thunderstorms are to move in today and persist through Sunday.
When I sat down to work yesterday after lunch, I found a dead mouse on my desk. I picked it up by the tail and took it to show to Barbara. She screamed and levitated onto the dining room table*. Fortunately, I had a spare USB mouse on the shelf, so I plugged it into the hub. I coiled up the dead one’s tail, secured it with a twist-tie, and stuck it in the dishwasher to see if that’d revive it. I should probably stick my keyboard in as well.
Ever since the election, Kurt Schlichter has been taunting lefties about their massive fail and claiming that Trump has been winning at every turn. In his column this morning, he finally admits that Trump not only isn’t winning, he’s losing big-time. His only real success to date has been the confirmation of his SCOTUS candidate. Otherwise, he’s backed off or reversed himself on nearly all of his promises. He’s done nothing about his wall, expelling illegal immigrants, or even refusing to accept more of them. He promised to repeal ObamaCare as a top priority, and has done nothing. Sanctuary cities continue to mock him. We’re not withdrawing from NATO, nor even forcing other NATO countries to pay the costs of their own defense. We’re apparently not withdrawing from the Paris Climate Accord. In short, as I expected, Trump is just more of the same-old-same-old. The deep state is still running things, and will continue doing so until this country undergoes a complete reboot.
* Not really. She doesn’t much like real mice, live or dead, but USB mice don’t scare her.
