Well, it looks as though the Republicans have dropped the ball again. Me thinks that the Idiot Jerk in the White House needs to go back and reread "The Art of the Deal," since neither he, nor his party seem to understand the art of negotiation. This is a party that would rather cut off their genitalia than think about compromise. They've had a problem with this concept every since Reagan's landslide win. The only solution will be to vote them out of existence. The American Freedom Caucus, with its vision of a white, socially conservative America needs to go. They are a minority party and need to be treated as such. For way too long America's Centrists and Liberals have played nice with them, demonstrating true values by turning the other cheek. They need to be held accountable for all of their deceits. They need to be removed.
Most people don't remember that this same party shut down the government for 16 days back in 2013. A lesson should have been learned then, that they will sacrifice anything and everything to dictate how Americans live their lives. We need to shut them up.
Anyway, today's Saturday and I'm off - no work, though there are chores around the house which need to be done. I have a small bookcase which will get at least 2 new coats of paint. I'm going to use it in the bathroom to store towels.
I also want to go for a ride this afternoon. There are those at work who find it funny that I ride a trainer during the winter, who find it amusing when I pull up Strava and show them a ride I took up a fjord in Norway. They say "isn't that nice." And I usually sit back, think about my sitting heart rate of 56 bpm, nod and say "yes it is, it's very nice."
