Day Four

A 6-post collection

Monday - Day Four

The USA has overwhelmingly chosen to not have the Muppet in office. Of course the right wing is throwing a tantrum about it. At least ScoMo's willing to roll with the flow.

The internet is more or less sighing in relief. Maybe this will be the turning point where the world brings itself back from the brink.

The real difference between the Muppet and Biden is that the Muppet surrounded himself with toadies and yes-men. Biden, even when campaigning, has surrounded himself with critics who have ideas about how to improve. AND IT WORKED.

We've gone from a man who won't listen to anyone but himself to a man who's prepared to listen to anyone.

BUT... there's still plague dominating the world so I still have to practice some degree of paranoia.

I'm frazzled, so I don't expect much out of me this week on KOSBOB.

In the headlines:

  • 60 Minutes goes into detail about Muppet's Covid failures and -yeah- we knew, but damn
  • Much ado about the Four Seasons (Landscaping) press conference and the Clayton's Concession Address
  • Melania apparently planning to also abandon the Muppet. Damn the prenup, full steam ahead
  • Muppet still has 75 days to be the one arsehole that shits all over everything
  • Biden thanks the American people for their votes rather than singing his own praise
  • Kevin Rudd tells Muppet to put on his "big boy pants" and accept his defeat

We all know that big boy pants are unknown to the orange menace, who will rant, rave, foam at the mouth, and call upon his loyal lackeys to defend his position. Even now, he's all but staging an actual coup.

Nevertheless, it's still a breath of fresh air to see that the forces for a better world actually won. For now. It's not a total victory, but it's a bloody good start.

Wednesday - Day Four

The Senate has confirmed a blatantly pro-life judge and "cruelty is the point" advocate for the supreme court, which is now 6-3 in favour of absolute evil. Two weeks before the election. They have all stated that they're going to let the Muppet do whatever he wants, throw out the postal votes, and ignore any tally that comes not-instantly after the polls close on the actual election day.

Fascism is real in America.

Today, rights formerly fought and won will erode.

Wednesday - Day Four

I know what I'm doing with Wordpress Wednesday, and it's A Chapter Of... Not just a chapter of an unedited novel I have finished, but a chapter of a thing that I've written before and during the plague. A thing that, though it won't earn me a red cent [because Wizards of the Coast will probably sue me if I try lol], gave me immense joy to read and write in a very stressful time.

I would come back to it again

Thursday - Day Four

Beloved will be going to work later today, so I will be recording a more audible version of the tutorial I did on Tuesday. I live, I learn.

Today's brain hack will involve closing the compy room door so that I will be in Recording Mode. We'll see if it works.

With luck, I'll have a video that MeMum can use. Everything explained simply and easily and the why of it as well. I have to make things VERY clear. Obviously.

Wednesday - Day 4

Apparently, there's an election in the wind. The Queensland government website I've been using to keep track of Covid-19 cases is now in "caretaker mode" until the new administration is in. That means we should probably attend some form of poll sometime real soon now.

Almost makes me wish I paid any attention at all to advertising. Almost.

I've penned my Wordpress Wednesday for today and -honestly- I've been procrastinating on writing this one because it might be in Bad Taste(tm)

Saturday - Day Four

Four days without plague. Woot. Here's to ten more so I finally have the freedom to go somewhere without that mask. I'm looking forward to it, and have been looking forward to it since firkin MARCH. That feels like twenty years ago now.

Sigh.

The Muppet has publicly announced that he's going to cling to power regardless of what the polls say and it's odds evens that his nefarious minions will let him.

Society as we know it may be fucked. Bring
