Thousands of national guard readying Washington for the Inauguration. Many also at state capitals throughout the nation. Trump having 3 days left in his Presidency and everyone wondering what he will do before leaving.
A change of pace is in order, however. A day off before the proverbial s–t hits the fans.
Leading topic for today Roosters!
I have written about roosters at least a dozen times over the years. They are part and parcel of Key West. I am motivated to write about them again this morning.
I live on the golf course. Not in Key West, on Stock Island. Lovely homes. Pristine neighborhoods. No chickens. They would not dare enter our peaceful sanctuary.
One has. Two mornings in a row I have heard the cock a doling do of a rooster. Sounds only 2-3 houses away.
Most think roosters cock a doodle do because they are waking the world as the sun rises. Not so. Roosters cock a doodle do off and on all day.
The reason simple. One that affects human males as well. The rooster wants sex. He wants to get laid. He is announcing to hens that he is on his way.
Roosters are sexual beings. Too much for the hens. Watch some time when you hear a cock a doodle do. The hens will run like hell in the opposite direction from the oncoming rooster.
Can’t blame the hens. The gestation period is only 29 days. The hens would be pregnant all the time.
Rudy Giuliani won’t give up. He must be back in Trump’s good graces and getting paid again. Most certainly because Trump thinks he needs him.
Giuliani announced yesterday he was working on Trump’s impeachment defense. I nod my head in disbelief. The issue is going to be incitement/conspiracy causing sedition.
Giuliani said he would argue the voter fraud claim.
He and Trump should give up. That issue is dead and buried. To resurrect it for the impeachment trial would definitely lead to Trump’s inevitable defeat.
Louis says: Giuliani will be as successful with the election fraud issue as he was with the Ukraine/Biden one.
Congress’ Pistol Packin’ Mama. The Anne Oakley of the House of Representatives. New Republican Congresswoman from Colorado Lauren Boebart.
The lady from Colorado continues to make news. Her “rap” sheet as well as that of her husband Jayson are at the revelation stage.
Her extreme gun rights mentality revealed itself this week. Speaker Pelosi ordered House metal detectors. The Congresswoman was obstinate. She refused to go through one.
Note also she tweeted on January 6 just before the riot: “Today is 1776.”
One of Boebart’s problems is she has no respect for the law. She does not like being told what to do and in many instances will fight long and hard before she does. Her lack of respect is obvious.
In 2015, she plead guilty to a disorderly conduct charge. She missed 2 court appearances along the way.
In 12/16, she was charged with careless driving and operating an unsafe vehicle. She rolled her truck into a ditch.
Boebart failed to appear in court one month later. She had to be arrested some 3 months later to make sure she showed up in court. She pled guilty to operation of an unsafe vehicle. The careless driving charge was dropped.
Going back to 9/10, she was arrested after a neighbor claimed Boebart’s 2 pit bulls attacked her dog. She pled guilty to permitting her dogs to be at large.
Husband Jayson was arrested for exposing his penis to 2 women at a bowling alley. Lauren was 17 at the time and present. Jayson pled guilty to indecency and lewd exposure. He was sentenced to 4 days in jail and 2 years probation.
In 2/04, a domestic violence charge was levied against him by his still girl friend Laura Boebart. Jayson received 7 days in jail.
Lauren and Jayson were married in 2005, remain married, and are the parents of 4 children.
Charges were levied in 5/04 against Lauren herself for in effect beating up Jayson. She scratched his face and chest and trashed his residence. She was charged with 3rd degree assault, criminal mischief, and underage drinking.
The final disposition of the case is unknown. Because Boebart was considered by law an infant at the time, the record is sealed.
The Republican Party is faced with a major decision. One it has to make: Whether it is the party of Lincoln or the party of Trump.
The Keys vaccine problem has not resolved itself. None available. No different than anywhere else in the country. Trump “misspoke” when he advised the government had held in reserve thousands of doses to be used for second shots.
Biden announced a few days ago he was going to release the “reserve doses”. Put them to use now. He would make sure the second shots were available when needed.
Copy cat Trump announced the next day he would do the same thing.
Then came the announcement by the Trump people that there were no 2nd doses being held in reserve.
The U.S. is fortunate Trump will be out of power in 3 days. He and his cohorts remind me of the gang that couldn’t shoot straight.
Biden’s proposed stimulus package is $1.9 trillion.
Trump advises he will increase the $600 stimulus to $2,000. Those who have already received the $600 will receive an additional $1,400.
Obama spent a lot of money. Increased the national debt significantly. Trump outpaced him. What with the tax cut for the rich, the wall, the military, coronavirus, and what have you.
Biden inherits a national debt higher than at any time in the history of the U.S. Podcaster Michael Snyder recently addressed the U.S. debt problem: “If we continue destroying the U.S. dollar at current pace, toilet paper will eventually be more valuable than U.S. dollars.”
Biden has no choice. People must be taken care of during COVID-19. However at some point after the virus is behind us, significant thought has to be given to reducing the nation’s huge debt.
People have to understand that when the U.S. does not have all the dollars it spends, it must borrow. From governments like China. There is no choice. Money is going out faster than it is coming in.
Enjoy your Sunday!
