lies and the lying liars who tell them, 2021 edition

The Republican Arizona audit by the Cyber Ninnies of Florida proved to be what everyone expected and predicted, a complete waste of time and money. According to The Guardian, a hand recount found 99 more votes for Biden and 261 fewer votes for Trump. But they won’t let the truth stand in the way of a good lie. The report attempted to cast common voting legal practices as something sinister, when in fact it was nothing like the Cyber Ninnies wanted to report.

In any event, Trump went to Georgia Saturday to raise money and debut the GOP primary ‘Trump ticket.’ I know how this will go in 2022 and 2024. The Republican controlled states will attempt to force a win for Republicans in the mid-term, and Trump in 2024. The battle for sanity and democracy in this country isn’t over; in fact, it’s headed for round 2.

Monday we picked up our sixth cat, a male polydactyl ginger with one eye missing. His story hit my soft spot, so after talking a bit with my wife we decided to apply for his adoption. It’s tough placing an injured animal because so many possible pet owners want a perfect animal. Life in its myriad forms is never perfect, no more than we humans are. In the 24 hours he’s been with us he’s shown what a sweet little guy he truly is. As my wife remarked, Nick looks like he’s constantly winking at us.

Why did we give him such a long name? Because:

  • He’s missing his left eye, just like Nick Fury,
  • If you watched the movie “Captain Marvel” then you know a young Nick Fury lost  his left eye when he was scratched by Goose, the Flerken, who just happened to be portrayed by a ginger tomcat.

Why This Post was Posted Twice

I posted this the first time yesterday. In the process of writing the post I used the newer WordPress editor. During the writing process, I pasted some text into what would be the title, only to somehow corrupt the title. In the process of trying to re-edit the title after the initial post the new WordPress editor managed to wipe out the entire article. I was so angry that happened I closed up my computer and went to bed.

I don’t know what happened. All I know is that the original was totally gone. At this point, whatever good will I was feeling towards the new WordPress editor has been completely obliterated.
