Wednesday

Normally, this would be hump day, but since I am not working Friday, the middle of the week occured the moment I logged out of work yesterday until now, just before logging back in.
And today looks to be very busy at work - busy, that is, if it doesn't rain too hard to shut down all the job sites. Yes, it's supposed to rain again, they give it 70% chance which is basically the statement that yes it is going to rain, the question is: how much?

The man that said he might want to live in the trailer finally called yesterday. He is coming tomorrow to take a look at the thing. I have not had a chance to start looking for materials yet - though I did place an ad on Craigslist with a list of materials needed.

Obama making more gaffes, this time his apparent tendency towards telling all of us Americans that we shouldn't be spending our money in Las Vegas when we're cash strapped. The first politcal player on the scene of this gaffe was Reid, which I thought rather hypocritical for him to be lashing out at Obama after his OWN gaffe not long ago after his reference about "negroes" and skin tones. Lol. What a bunch of clowns we have running our nation. If the decisions they were making weren't so far-reaching in their ability to - destroy this nation as we know it financially if nothing else - I would certainly be laughing. It's about time we all stood up and started mocking some of these people. That's my take - how they ever made it in the real world, I'll never know, but apparently that's what's expected of them in the political arena? Reid says an apology isn't good enough from Obama, well neither was his "apology" to Obama if he wants to live by his own, self-made standards which apparently change with the direction the wind wants to blow.

Whatever. The government advises us to save money while the government itself is belching money out the giant, Federal budget smokestack like it's hay from the farm. Instead of looking to start downsizing the Federal Government, and more importantly, begin to start limiting it's influence on the American way of life and getting out of the auto dealership business - etc ad nauseum - it wants more and more powers. Gee, and people bash people like me that say these are small, but concurrent and frequent steps being taken towards socialism.

I wax political, usually don't on my blogs but the seriousness of this situation seems to multiply exponentially on a daily/weekly/monthly basis. This isn't a game but we are forced into being unfortunate players.

Well, work day is here, gotta git.

G'day.
