Teh Squeaky Wheel
Good morning, Gerbil Nation!
What a nice way for a kitteh to express his wishes. Mine meows -- loudly and insistently.
Kitteh kilt teh thread.
But what a cute kitty!
How’s work going, Paddy?
It’s the end of the school year, which means lot’s of tasks and attendant paperwork to complete -- mostly paperwork. Also phone calls and emails from students and parents who have just now decided that maybe passing a few classes would be a good idea. Add on top of that another class that I’m taking -- this time with a professor that has been mostly AWOL.
In other words, it’s Monday.
Do you have the summer off, or did you get some summer classes to teach?
I get July off. No work. No pay. Classes end on Friday, but we work until the end of June, then start up again on August 1.
In California, there’s been some backlash over increases to gasoline taxes and vehicle registration fees set to kick in in a few months. Those opposed are referred to as “freeloaders” by Gov. Moonbeam. Part of the backlash involves a recall effort against a Dem senator in Fullerton. Signatures are being collected and it looks like they’ll be able to get the required number under current law to force another election. So what’s a good Dem led government to do? Why, change the law:
No shame or honor whatsoever. Bastards.
I see Hot Air has gotten to this story too:
“So they’re pitching this as an effort to ensure the security, integrity and legitimacy of the process, eh? And how do they propose to do that? They’ll be giving anyone who signed the petitions a chance to ask to have their names pulled. The petitioners would then have to remove the names, redo the tallies, and manually verify every signature. And they’ve got to get all of that done in 30 days or the petition is tossed. We’re talking about tens of thousands of signatures here. Are you kidding me?”
The proper response:
As Dalton in the movie Roadhouse said: “I want you to be nice until it’s time to not be nice.”
Notice all the attempts to keep their actions from being recorded? Cockroaches afraid of the light.
Hai, Paddy and Sven!
Day 2 of the second job was rather bracing. More details when I’m at a computer rather than my tablet. Job’s going well but many buttheads. (Not on property, but around job site.)
Some of those folks in Sacramento need gibbiting or chipping.
