I Have a Screw Loose

This does not mean that I am acting particularly silly, being eccentric, am crazy, slightly strange or eccentric, or that I am mentally unstable.  This just means that I need to secure the screw before it comes loose.  I should probably do that before it falls out and then I will end up looking for it, as everyone is searching for something.

The Harder They Come

The bigger a person is, the harder they will fall.  The more important or powerful a person is, the more difficult it is for them when they lose their power or importance.  Oh, how the mighty have fallen and when the mighty are brought lower than the lowly, everybody will celebrate.  I can’t wait for Trump to be voted out of office.

A Poke in the Eye with a Sharp Stick

My wife was invited to a United Way rewards dinner at a swanky restaurant and I went with her.  We ended up sitting at a table with a bunch of managers from her company who I didn’t know.  The waiter accidently stepped on this lady’s foot who was sitting next to me at our table.  She screamed and complained about how the waiter was so clumsy and honestly all of her complaining was ruining my dinner.  I said, “Better than getting stuck with a javelin” to lighten the mood, knowing that things can always be worse, but she just gave me a dirty look.  In hindsight, I probably should have kept quiet, but she continued making a really big deal out of this and most times I talk without thinking first.

Constitutional Rights

Protesters across the country say wearing masks violates their Constitutional rights by denying their personal freedoms and in Florida, Governor Ron DeSantis continues to maintain his position that mask-wearing should be voluntary.  We have laws that prohibit people from walking around naked and laws that say people in cars must wear seatbelts, so having laws about requiring masks seems to make sense to me.  Do these protestors think that they have the right to infect others with the Covid-19 virus?  In society, you can’t just go around doing what you want to do.

Man Shoved by Cops

NY riot cops suspended after shoving man, 75, to the ground and leaving him bleeding and unconscious.  President Trump suggested without evidence Tuesday morning that an elderly man who was hospitalized after being shoved to the ground by police in Buffalo, New York, was an “ANTIFA provocateur” who may have been trying to “set up” law enforcement.
