Seriously, an I.T. guy interested in government and rights. Go figure.

Digital Underground

So now that Amazon Music is working again I note one of my recommendations was Digital Underground.

Very interesting group. They heavily sample P-Funk so there was the obvious hook for me there. Plus Tupac got his start with them.

Listening the Sex Packets album now. Damn this brings me back to the early 90’s.

Ooopsie: Amazon Music

So apparently Amazon Music is having some issues this afternoon. Will not play at all. The splash screen pops then I get a message to try again later.

What did they do I wonder.

I’ve always noted when the big playes screw the pooch. Few years ago it was Google’s turn.

On the downslide to 60

Welp today is my birthday. Fifty six orbits around the sun on planet Earth. That means 60 is just four years away now.

At the very least it didn’t fall on Thanksgiving this year.

Had to do a Pre-Thanksgiving run to the supermarket to pick up a ham, stuffing mix, and cupcakes for the birthday. Pretty much a relaxing week so far.

A little bit of astronomy

So Sunday night I got home around 6PM and noticed something in the sky. It was reddish in color and I realized it was Mars. Granted it’s only the next planet over in the scheme of things.

And in one of the books I’m currently reading it’s mentioned that one of the characters doesn’t know any of the constellations in the sky. I know a few like Orion, the big and little dippers you know. That first is visible in the northern sky during winter.

It’s weird I always get more into Astronomy during the cooler months. One of these days I have to buy myself a telescope.

Congratulations to the new President Elect Joe Biden

Well well – the fat lady has finally sung. Trump is out, President elect Joe Biden his Vice President elect Kamala Harris clinched the electoral college.

The count is 290 Biden/Harris to 214 Trump./Pence currently – 20 past the 270 required. And it also means the following. There were 60 electors up for grabs. Previously the Biden team needed only 6 to get to 270. That would have left 54 for the current miscreant President. But no, 290 now. That means Biden/Harris got 26 subtract that from 60 and you get 34. If by some stretch Trump gets those it only brings him to 248. Na na na boo boo – you lost Trump, suck on that for a while.

Somehow I have the fantasy of seeing Trump lead out of the White House in handcuffs.

Looks like the President will be a one term asshole

So I just looked at the electoral count and it’s Joe Biden/Kamala Harris at 264 vs. Trump/Pence at 214.

First let me offer my congratulations to former Vice President Joe Biden and former Senator Kamala Harris and yell Yippeee now that the two are going to be President and Vice President.

There is no way in hell Trump can catch up. I’m trying to find out how many electoral votes are in play. But then I run into this, Biden/Harris are 50 votes ahead. I don’t think the current President can snatch defeat from the jaws of victory like that.

Mailed our ballots today

So found my local post office and they had the drive up post box all setup. So I put our ballots in. Me being gimped up and the spouse being blind makes things so that voting the normal way just won’t do, it is much simpler to mark the ballots at home and just mail them out. In fact with COVID-19 it’s the best way we can vote.

Changes to Presidential Debates

Good playback of the Tuesday debate between the President and Joe Biden.

You can read it here.

Now of course cutting off the microphone is one option. But I was thinking of some other options.

  1. They could hire a big brute to clamp his hand over Trump’s mouth when he starts interrupting.
  2. Maybe a trap door underneath the President.
  3. A cone of silence could lower over Trump during his opponents time.

I mean there’s at least three options there that would be very entertaining to watch.

Watching the first 2020 Presidential Debate

I have to say it Trump is a clueless fucking moron and he’s also a buffoon. There I said it. Of course the fucking moron part I’m borrowing from Mr. Tillerson.

I don’t know how much longer I can watch this. The President is amply demonstrating why I call him the Petulant Man Child in Chief.

USSC Nominee Amy Coney Barrett – is wrong.

I’ll explain she’s part of People of Praise. If you’re not familiar this is a group that espouses wifely submission to their husbands. Yeah I know.

But the whole of the anti-choice anti-abortion groupthink isn’t in the Bible. The only ostensible justification is based on the good old Sin of Onan. It is in Genesis 38 – I’ll paraphrase. Good old Onan had to fuck his sister in law, except he pulled out before he shot his wad. Yeah I know, why a God would care is beyond me.

So know you now, the entirety of the anti-abortion, anti-contraception crowd – the same idiots that opposed HPV vaccines for kids. Based on this Amy Coney Barrett should not be an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court.
