The Beer: The Lawnmower is so good, my wife had it with last nights' (awesome) grilled chicken wings instead of her usual wine. I thought the Pale Ale was better. And there's nothing like a beer after a day of hard, physical labor.
The Bicycle: 40 miles yesterday. After the tree incident. The temperature was near 80 at the start of the ride, but fell of to 60 or so near the Lake. Normally, I ride home along the Lake, but I doubled back yesterday, since I was not properly dressed.
Note to Illinois drivers: It's not cool to attempt a U-turn in front of me on a busy street and stop when you find your car has inadequate turning radius.
The VRWC: Here's another Lefty who doesn't get it. We don't ask for money to come here from the Feds. All we know is that we are taxed 50% and more in total. Her claim of a tax cut for the vast majority is just dishonest when nearly 50% pay no income taxes.
The answer is that what’s left of the Republican Party is intent on cutting off the knees of the administration before it actually manages to fulfill any campaign promises on reducing the huge economic gap between the top 5 percent of the country and the rest of the populace.
I realize there a many in this country who think this is a good thing, but taking from one (at the point of a gun, I might add) to give to another is theft. Plain and simple. Government as "great equalizer" has unintended consequences. Just like "government subsidized news". Maybe they should look to their Lefty Hollywood friends or guys like George Soros to close that gap, instead of doing it on the back of small business.
This isn't about secession. This is about a gigantic Federal bureaucracy that exceeds its' Constitutional authority and continues to consume tax dollars at an unsustainable rate.
