Yup. Just a boring day. I have a big order to go out before the end of January, so I spent a large part of my day in the shop. Should be pretty busy for at least the next month. All for the good, because Jan-Mar is usually my slow time income-wise. I've also got a couple of articles to finish up for Backwoods home magazine.
Because I'm something of a news junky, I normally wear a pair of radio headphones while I work. My normal listening schedule is Rush Limbaugh from 9 to noon, Hannity from noon to three and Buck Sexton from three to whenever.
But today I skipped my usual programs and listened to a couple of audio books instead; "The American Revolution part 1 read by the incomparable George C. Scott and just for fun; Monkey Business, a book about the pre-fab four of my youth.
So why the change? In a word: Impeachment.
I'm sincerely sick and tired of this whole thing and I think I can safely say that I share this feeling with a majority of the American public.
And that's a shame and quite worrisome.
For four weeks, the completed non-criminal articles of impeachment, which were slammed together from the testimony of second and third hand 'witnesses' about the mysterious content of a phone call (The transcript of which is available online) were held up. Pelosi finally delivered this stinking ball of innuendo, hearsay and bald-face lies to the Senate because keeping it on her desk, after declaring that it's creation was a national emergency, was actually making her look like the doufus she truly is.
And for the last two days, the forsworn Schiff channeled Satan channeling John Adams as he described a litany of evil and traitorous behavior by a high government official: a list that he is intimately familiar with, because it's his own Curriculum Vite.
Even I, news junky that I am, can take no more. My only immediate lament is that the days of horse-whipping have ended. On a longer timeline, I'm extremely worried about the world that's ahead. The certain not-guilty vote that's coming in the Senate doesn't end anything. President Trump will simply hit back harder. And a whole bunch of replicrats will soon find themselves forced to defend themselves, their family, and friends for the literally billions of dollars they've scammed from the public trough for many years though shady foreign and domestic sweetheart deals.
And these people who will kill to keep their ill-gotten gain.
It's going to get very very bumpy soon.
