I tried to listen to Trump's speech. I really did.

I'm done. I can't take anymore.

I've got better things to do. I'm off to clean cat litter boxes.

Gawd, I hate that song.

Trump's walk-on music tonight is Lee Greenwood's "Proud to be an American."

I spent 2003 at Ft. Polk, LA as National Guard and Reserve troops were processed for shipment to Iraq. At every "departure ceremony," as these soldiers were sent off to fight a war that was premised on a lie, "Proud to be an American" boomed from the loud speakers.

For me, this particular bit of patriotic claptrap is the theme song for a stupid war.

I've got to make a liquor store run tomorrow.

It's taking a lot of whisky to get through this Repugnant show.

Ok, that's it. I'm done with Bill Maher.

I record the show - or at least I used to - for watching on Saturday night.

It's been getting harder and harder to watch Bill Maher. I've gotten used to fast forwarding through the weekly spiel about the "over-reaction" to Covid.

This week he started by trashing the Democratic Convention and moved on to trashing Biden - in the first couple of minutes. That's it, I deleted the recording and cancelled future recordings.

On July 25, I posted about my really nice experience putting up a "Veterans for Biden" sign.

When I got home from work today, my sign was gone. The wire stand was still in the yard but the sign was gone. The sign was posted three feet from the sidewalk. Some MAGAt had to trespass in the yard to steal the sign.

I am confused here. I thought MAGAts are supposed to be all about law and order. I thought MAGAts supported "our Veterans." I hear MAGAt's saying that the defense of property justifies the use of tear gas and "non-lethal" weapons. I simply cannot square what MAGAts say they and how they act.

What am I missing?

Not to worry. I'm ordering a replacement - maybe a dozen.
