#5819: Doldrums

Of late, the political scene is a massive wad of "same-old-same-old" with nothing particularly noteworthy or interesting going on. By now--at least for me--the leftists' antics in the wake of Trump's election have ceased to be outrageous or even interesting; at this point it's like watching network television: the same damned thing over and over and over again.

It's as tiresome as the constant whining of a toddler, and I know I'm not the only person getting sick of it.

Equally stultifying is the GOP's unwillingness to let Trump lead them to victory. The GOP would rather give in to Democrats; by losing every time they think they win, because they can tell the voters that if more Republicans get elected, then next time Obamacare repeal/tax cuts/pick-your-issue will pass instead of being defeated.

So far it's worked; but the voters are getting fed up with the schtick and the failure of the Obamacare repeal made it obvious that Republican efforts to stem the expansion of government on any front are mere theater.

Why elect Republicans if they vote Democrat?

It's all horseshit.

Game of Thrones is already down to its season finale. That's on Sunday. And after that, we have one season left of the show. Ought to be pretty interesting.

Tomorrow is the last Friday of August, already. Seems like the month flew past. Well, when you're that busy, that happens. The Friday after that is September 1, already.

Maki goes in for his 4-week exam on the 29th, and we're hoping we can do away with the kennel afterwards.

Cool weather today. Actually cold in the bedroom last night, but not under the blankets--perfect sleeping weather. Trend looks to continue for the next week--but it also means no swimming weather is in the offing.
