On this day of international significance, I opt to open with levity.

I am sick of Trump and the worldwide aggravations he has caused. Wake up America. Trump is destroying our country. He and his party must be voted out. Hopefully, it will not be too late.

Levity a BOB story. Involves Chi Chi. A Vietnamese pot bellied pig living in Key West in the mid 1990’s.

Chi Chi became enamored with the next door neighbor’s Harley-Davidson. Began humping the Harley’s front tire. In the process, scratched the Harley’s paint.

The damage more than $100.

The Monroe County Animal Control took Chi Chi to the pen. An animal pen.

In effect, Chi Chi had been arrested. Technically, his owner charged.

Chi Chi could have been turned into bacon. Several weeks elapsed while Chi Chi’s owner, the Harley-Davidson’s owner, judges and attorneys argued over what should be done with Chi Chi.

Consumed the community. A matter of importance. Imagine, an animal sex act with a Harley causing such furor. The judge intended to sentence Chi Chi to death.

A judgment of execution was stayed.

A decision finally arrived at. Chi Chi was to be neutered.

How cruel!

Chi Chi would no longer be looking for love in all the wrong places. He would not be looking for love anywhere!

BOB had one further comment re the summer doldrums discussed yesterday. The end of the summer found Key Westers looking to the horizon. Hurricane conversations consumed the populace.

Later this morning, I return with Key West Lou Live. My 3-4 minute video on Facebook. Ranting and raving. Hope you will join me. As MacArthur said, “I have returned!”

Sunday purportedly a day of rest. I recall when younger, sundays were respected as such. Practically and legally. Blue laws kept stores closed on sundays.

Yesterday was a day of rest for me. Remained in all day and night. Did my blog. researched a bit. Read. Watched TV. Napped.

A very good day! I needed it.

The Helsinki summit/meeting today. Not sure what it is at this point. I probably will comment on its results, if any, tomorrow.

What goes around comes around. Trump generally keeps persons of importance waiting. He did it with the Queen a few days ago. Boosts his ego. Makes him feel important.

TV news just announced Putin will be late.

Ho ho!

Dueling Bartenders tonight. Shopping for groceries earlier. I am out of food again!

Enjoy your day!


    • NO, but I did read (on Vox) where in 2017 President Donald Trump and House Speaker Paul Ryan held up Harley-Davidson as an American company that would flourish under the Republican Party’s policies on trade and taxes. Apparently, that hasn’t happened.

      • Yes, I read that too. It was published here in the Milwaukee Journal on February, 2, 2017. I remember because that was my birthday. Trump met with Harley execs and Union officials in the Whitehouse and there was this big hub-bub press ‘event’ about how the Republican “way” was going to help American industries. But, just like with Carrier corporation in Indiana, that didn’t happen, not even a little bit. Now Trump is blaming Harley as the”enemy” and trying to make them and their supporters into America’s enemies. I think he’s got that backwards.

  1. One more time, the purpose of business is to make as much money as is legally possible for the owners. Providing jobs is just an incidental concomitant. Paying the lowest wages possible is only logical. I think that may have been one of the reasons that workers formed unions.

    • That’s not always true, anymore than lowering corporate taxes keeps prices low.

      Other factors are often the cause for higher prices. For example, huge pharma price increases have had nothing to do with employee wages.

      Besides, as long as I’ve been around prices keep going up, independent of employee wages.

      The lower wages mantra id often just a rallying cry of the corporate world
