11 o’clock blues

Say ‘ello to my leetle fren’, Espeedie Zapatas.

As I finished yesterday’s run I entered El Rancho Pendejo to wild applause and cheers.

I grinned, threw both hands in the air, and finally bowed before remembering that I’d left KUNM on to deter burglars and some pissant orchestra on “Performance Today” was stealing my thunder.

Well, it wasn’t as though I’d set a PR anyway.

And don’t believe your lyin’ eyes. No matter what that photo shows, I was not running in shorts. Well, I was, but they were under tights, and I was rockin’ two long-sleeved tops plus a tuque and gloves, too. I may be crazy, but I’m not insane. Cold out there! Colder than a ticket-taker’s smile at the Ivar Theatre on Saturday night.

Speaking of emotional weather reports, the forecast remains uncertain in Alabama. Talk about putting the vise grips on our mental health. I’m old enough to remember when we sent short-eyes to jail instead of the Senate.

    While I WAS surprised by the racist/nationalist victory of Brexit and more surprised by the racist/nationalist victory of the Greasy Orange Turd, I won’t be surprised at all if the KKK candidate wins over the anti-KKK candidate in Alabama.

    I’m getting ready to ride right now. By the time I get dressed, I’m too tired to ride.

    As one passionate republican barber shop owner in Alabama indicated, Dems need to get out and work harder to ensure that they communicate the issues they stand on to those of on-the-fence voting prowess. With that said, it is now my moment to pull out the soapbox and announce “The destroyer hath cometh and we better get our shit together and chase that bastard out before we fall into a putin-ish dictatorship”. A book I read regarding the politics of Russia after the collapse of the Soviet Union, indicated that some wiley ex-KGB characters were patient enough and aggressive enough to chase out (imprison, kill, etc.) the liberal media oligarchs that were promoting a more-democratic political position for the Russian people. Now those Russian folks are being coerced into believing that invading other Slavic countries will give their country notoriety and strength in a world where economics, not military invasion is what gives a country power…. Hey, hey! who’s kicking over my soapbox… Could it be, a blast of hot air from the swishing of the destroyer’s hairdo…..

      And the worst of the ex-KGB characters, Putin, is in charge in Russia, controls a huge and sophisticated intelligence service, and is playing the dumpster and stupid Americans like a $2 violin. It’s his business and profession. He is really good at it, especially human intelligence operations. They look for people who are greedy, have large egos, have debt, and believe in conspiracies or imagined enemies, and want revenge on people or groups. They can play and exploit people like this without them realizing it.

      The good news was no cops around, so no ticket…….that’s why they “went for it”! 🙂
