When you hit middle age you really only have two choices: you can get fat and lazy until you roll over and die, or you can can get off your ass and do something, like maybe ride a bike.
I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Paul Ryan's skin
Today's Father's Day, a holiday, of sorts, pretty much invented by Hallmark, anything to sell a card, you know? My Dad died a bit over 12 years ago from lung cancer. Between the experimental chemo and the radiation treatments it was not a good year, so, rather than wonder down that maudlin path, I thought I'd talk about Paul Ryan instead. You know who I'm talking about? He's in politics? Kind of, sort of, runs the House of Representatives... sometimes? Well, Paul gave an interview today where he actually said he's supporting Trump because the people voted for him. Take a deep breath and read that last sentence again. He is not supporting him because he'd make a great President, nor because he is a fair and open minded individual. Paul didn't say he was supporting Trump because he'd even be a good President. Nope. He didn't highlight any of Trump's qualifications which set him above the rest, not at all. Instead, Paul dumped this whole thing into the laps of the people. They were the ones who voted for Trump. One can only wonder if the Republicans had actually put some thought into their primary process and voted for...oh, say Daffy Duck, would Paul support him as well? I mean, if Daffy Duck had won the hearts of a majority of the Republican voters would Paul be right behind them. Would he actually say, "I'm supporting Daffy" because they voted for him? Hhhmmm me thinks not.
Anyway, Paul looks good shirtless. Funny thing, it seems as though more people Google 'Paul Ryan Shirtless,' then they do 'Paul Ryan budget,' or Paul Ryan politics, or... well just about anything else to do with Paul Ryan.
Maybe, if Paul really wants people to get behind Donald Trump, he should take more shirtless pictures. Maybe even holding up a Donald Trump bumper sticker, or maybe a copy of Donald's book. Come on, Paul, don't you know anything about subliminal messaging? If you want us to get behind you, and support Donald the same way you do, well, you're going to have to show us a little more skin.
