#7016: Trump acquitted

There was never any doubt in my mind that this would be the outcome.

Romney voted to convict, of course, because Mitt Romney is an unremediated shithead. I am so very glad that I never, never, ever cast a single vote for that worthless dick splash.

Well, his traitorous gesture only served to identify him as nothing more than a turncoat, and I'm hoping that the next time he stands for election he is ousted.

"Romney's Entire Career Has Been About Punishing Republicans For Voting For Him" and for damn sure Republicans should stop electing him and make him join the party he actually belongs to.

Be kind of funny if he was the Democrat nominee's running mate.

The big thing to come out of the State of the Union address was when Nancy Pelosi, Speaker of the House, ripped up the copy of the speech Trump handed her.

She didn't have the guts to tear it up to his face, of course.

I don't think she quite understands how petty and unreasonable that made her look. Maybe she doesn't care.

Weather report: "Snow accumulations less than one inch."
Me: "Dex! You fuckin' blew it again!"

If the number of deaths from the coronavirus is around 25,000 then it really is terrifying. I know I don't trust the official numbers from the communist Chinese government, but that doesn't mean I'm ready to accept these.

The Protestant work ethic is one reason we have this big fancy advanced civilization.

Hackaday goes all warmista. When I first read the post, there were a double handful of comments, mainly skeptical of AGW and nearly unanimous in the "this isn't a hack" camp.

I'm not going to sift through the 140 comments there now to see if they still trend that way.

A Maunder minimum seems more likely, anyway.

Well, just a couple days left before the weekend. Here's hoping for a little extra sleep this time.

    I don't get to make it very often, but I saw a really nice piece of round steak at the store the other day, so I bought it. 1-1.5 lbs beef (round…
