Day Four

A 5-post collection

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.

I could put this all in Wordpress Wednesday, but... it's too depressing. The people closest to this garbage fire will be telling their stories firsthand. The rich will be able to go on holidays to countries that will provide abortions for the pregnancies they don't want, and the poor will suffer and die like never before.

Regulations - written in the blood of former victims - will fall by the wayside like autumn leaves. Businesses will do whatever the hell they like to maximise profits.

It's all going to end in riots. The only question is how the Muppet is going to die - shot, hanged, beheaded or in a pool of his own filth.

Those who refuse to learn from the lessons of history...

In the headlines:

  • Muppet's new SCOTUS appointee could void thousands of votes with a word
  • Victoria is a country? Nevertheless, it still got the case numbers down to zero. Yay them
  • Obama said some words that made the Muppet angry. I bet one of them was "responsibility"
  • Brisbane's having floods. Yay. I need to get my supplies while the sun still shineth
  • NY man dumps pregnant girlfriend's body on the highway ON CAMERA and the "pro life" lot say nothing. I expect he'll get away with it for some stupid-arse reason
  • Aldi brings back their $100 pre-lit Christmas tree
  • Woolies' new collectable is re-usable glass storage containers. I might get behind that one
  • Article about Muppet refusing to concede goes through things logically and without the assumption that his loyalists will rise up with all their guns
  • Outrage amongst the right wing as rich people pay for ex-felons to have their political say
  • Melbourne K-Marts introduce a booking system so the shoppers can browse under plague restrictions
  • F-off huge moth terrifies the internet because someone described it as a "tarantula with wings". People. It's not even remotely venomous. Get a grip
  • Beachfront properties at huge risks from rising seas and severe storms - aka the consequences of Climate Change
  • AusPost CEO now in trouble for using a credit card. None of this would be happening if she were a bloke. Just saying

So. My PLN today is: get the supplies as soon as humanly possible. My coffee has to wait because Costco won't open before 10AM [WHY?] so I'll get my essential dairy ASAP and by the time that's away, Costco may be open. I can hope that it all works out in the end.

Wordpress is going to be DISTRACTION CENTRAL because the world outlook is firkin horrible.

Let's get on with the madness.

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
