This’N’That on Thursday

Sunday is the family jollification (or shindig) so I have once again been a virtual serf to Camera Girl.  She had me getting the pool and the pool accoutrements brought up to her standards.  This involved extraordinary amounts of cleaning, water chemical treatment and just plain stoop labor.  Then I had to sweep and clean the deck and first floor and organize all the “stuff” that would be in the way.  In many ways she is reminiscent of Ivan the Terrible with her fondness for the cat-o-nine-tails and branding iron.  But somehow I have performed the herculean tasks she set me and I now can look around at the happenings of the day and see if I have anything salient to opine.

With respect to the school shootings in Uvalde the Left, as expected, has lived down to expectations and beat the gun control drum endlessly.  Beto O’Rourke has demonstrated his vile self-serving callousness by crashing a meeting for the grieving town of Uvalde to grandstand his stupid gun control act.

An interesting phenomenon seems to be occurring.  It looks like the usual leftist press outrage over mass shootings or abortion don’t seem to have the usual Republicans panicking as they typically do.  I think the public is outraged out and even the spineless GOP cowards are figuring it out.  When you have inflation emptying your bank account and crime running rampant in the streets it’s hard to come up with additional outrage to care about the New York Times’ talking points on some tragedy.  So even though the Left is trying to talk themselves into some kind of narrative where Roe v. Wade plus school shootings equals salvation for the Dems in the mid-terms I don’t think the polls are even budging.  Good.

I noticed that Dementia Joe’s Approval Rating has taken another hit.  On Tuesday Reuters had him at 36% Approve / 59% Disapprove.  The Real Clear Politics average (below) has him at  40.5% Approve / 55.2% Disapprove.  And that’s because even NPR has him 40% / 56% and Politico has him 42% / 56%.  These are in the tank fellow mouthpieces for Biden and even they have to admit he’s despised by the country.

My theory is that when his approval rating stays below 35% for a month there will begin to be a move by the Dems to find his replacement.  But to be fair I’m sure they’ll wait till after the mid-terms before they start baying for his blood.

I’m curious to see how Juneteenth goes this year.  I’m guessing it won’t get as much play as last year.  It doesn’t feel like a winner to me and right now the Dems are looking for some wins.  Maybe they’ll rediscover the Fourth of July for some reason and start waving the racist Stars and Stripes.  Should be interesting.

Well, we’ll see what new horrors await us tomorrow.  But I’ve got some fun ahead of me this weekend so I’m sort of content.  See you tomorrow.

I feel your pain, Photog. My daughter is graduating high school tonight, and with the party looming tomorrow afternoon, getting the house, pool, deck, outdoor area, etc. acceptable has been a monumental undertaking. It sounds like my wife and Camera Girl are cut from the same cloth.
