Teh Squeaky Wheel
In Search of Ancient Kittehs salutations, GN!
…you would think that our wonderful and smart govt would have plans in place beforehand…
While we hate the idea, I think JimCo’s going to have to raise prices slightly again due to the cost of gas (for which the guys get an allowance), propane and materials.
I blame Big Shingle.

I thought that was from Bed, Bath & Beyond.
Good morning, Fatwa -- just stick one of the Brandon “I did that” stickers on all written quotes going forward. This being California, I’m sure most of your clients will understand and accept higher prices without complaint.
Olive your sticker idea; wish we could get away with doing that. 🙁
With the threat of nuclear war closer to reality than I can recall in many years, I wondered if the Doomsday Clock had been updated reflect that. Nope. Makes me wonder why. Very funny -- things sure are working out the way you hoped, right? C**ksuckers.
Last year’s leadership change in the United States provided hope that what seemed like a global race toward catastrophe might be halted and—with renewed US engagement—even reversed. Indeed, in 2021 the new American administration changed US policies in some ways that made the world safer: agreeing to an extension of the New START arms control agreement and beginning strategic stability talks with Russia; announcing that the United States would seek to return to the Iran nuclear deal; and rejoining the Paris climate accord. Perhaps even more heartening was the return of science and evidence to US policy making in general, especially regarding the COVID-19 pandemic. A more moderate and predictable approach to leadership and the control of one of the two largest nuclear arsenals of the world marked a welcome change from the previous four years.
Happy Monday, Gerbil Nation!
Good morning, Fatwa, and Sven!
It’ the start of a fresh week, which means we have a fresh load of scheisser coming at us.
Good morning, Paddy. Is “scheisser” “sunshine”? Cuz then I’m all in, baby!!!
California going all in on beating the drought: https://californiaglobe.com/articles/department-of-water-resources-announces-49-million-worth-of-water-infrastructure-projects-across-state/
Wow. $49M. Bet that will make a real dent in things. C**ksuckers.
That’s quite the list of reservoirs, recharge basins, and run-off collection systems they’ve planned.
I wonder what happened to the billions in bonds for water projects the voters approved?
Those fancy office suites were not going to refurnish themselves, were they. Plus hard times mean bigger graft needed.
With California’s identity and crony based bid system that might be almost $15M in construction?
Maybe…how many left-handed Panamanian trans-men with leukemia does your firm employ?
Employ? That’s patriarchal talk, right there. That’s just one step away from master/slave.
Hey, Paddy and Mac!
Wow. $49M. Bet that will make a real dent in things.
Well, it’ll fund two or three “environmental impact studies” (which will conclude that having more water is actually bad for the environment).
Sunday got away from me, but Harper and I had a very nice “day” consisting of afternoon evening and morning.
Yeah, time for work soon/the whole work week to begin. Hey I think this is payday week.
Trump apparently got some good work out of his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, with Israel and the Abraham Accords. I wonder if it’s time for Brandon to tap his son Hunter and send him off to Ukraine to fix things over there -- with his connections and known abilities, it might just be what is needed to bring this war to a non-nuclear conclusion.
I seem to recall Brandon saying that Hunter was the smartest person he knew. Although considering that Kneepads is his VP, maybe that’s not a high bar.
He could definitely resolve the crack situation in Ukrane. He could start there, anyway. Sort of a “center out” strategy.
