Sure Happy It’s Thursday, GN!

I, too, loathe self-checkout. Especially if I have any produce, as I often have problems with that stuff despite properly entering the four-digit code. It’s as though fruits and vegetables hate me.

Hope you were able to get together with Dave…and that you had a good time.

Internal polling must be really bad if he’s making that admission.

I’m getting that impression. I’d like to see him Nuisance booted from office, which might also put a damper on his presidential aspirations.

Jim says he’s starting to see a bit of enthusiasm for Larry Elder but is not sanguine about his chances. We’ll see…

There’s pushback on Elder because he’s a talker and never been in elected office before -- my friend Jennifer over at Red State is really against him in favor of someone else she thinks is a hardcore conservative.
I think the really improtant part of the recall is the first part of the question: do you think Newsom should be recalled? As long as he is recalled, I don’t much care who takes his place.

Criminy.

With all due respect to Jennifer: Obama, Biden, Pelosi, Miss Lindsey, Gingrich and literally hundreds of oath-breaking, fascist turds keep getting elected and reelected; that would seem to be a piss-poor metric for how effectively -- or constitutionally -- someone might govern.

Meanwhile, we had a successful business person who’d never been elected to anything previously do a tolerably good job of running this entire country for four years within living memory.

If Newsom’s recalled and then replaced with another uniparty hack, what’s the point?

My view is that this recall isn’t about saving California -- it’s about removing Newsom from office and destroying his presidential aspirations. If he’s recalled, it doesn’t matter who replaces him as no one is going to be able to turn CA around in a year if ever. It will breathe new life into a mostly dead Republican corpse for 2022. That might be a good thing.

Good morning, Fatwa. Put me in the “don’t like” column too. I avoid it as much as possible and will even avoid stores where that’s mostly what they offer.

He’s still alive -- now we just got to trap him.

Sure Happy It’s Thursday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!

Today is the first all-day PLC (professional learning community) -- read ‘all hands meeting’ -- of the new school year. We’re back to virtual meetings, rather than in-person.

Sven -- good luck with your trapping!

In re self-checkout: if I’ve got a couple of items, I’ll usually use that. If I have more then forget it. The Costco I go to converted two regular checkout lanes to four self-checkout stations. I used one the last time I was there because a) the other lines were longer, 2) I only had a few items, and iii) I had no alcohol.

I’d like to say I’m shocked, but I’m not.

The only thing shocking is that she is saying it out loud. Clearly.

Life lesson #23: If a piece of meat looks bad, don’t stick your nose to within in an inch of it and inhale deeply to check its smell. Rather waft the fumes upwards from like maybe a foot or more below your nose.

A lesson that transfers well from chemistry.
