Took the day off yesterday as it was a full day, and I'm bushed. I -finally- re-started the gym, and because of it, I'm gimp, and can't lift my arms over my head. And I went light to start. Did a couple of miles on the stationary bike, then did arms and shoulders.
Now I'm back at work and man, this's a bunch of absolute bullshit. AGAIN they have us doing the. same. exact. things. again. I kind of blew up at my boss, as I had been promised that the near-continual repetition of the worthless same old shit same old shit.
I've been begging them to give me some info on 'how to be a boss' here for THIS job. The training, which I've now gone through twice, once as the student, and then as the Trainer, and now I have to go over the training syllabus AGAIN because OMFG, third times a fucking charm? And the training is literally basic training. I do NOT need to go over this bullshit again. What I NEED is to be able to know how I deal with an escalation, 'cos as of now? Any member/customer problems that get escalated to me? They're going to die on the vine...
'Cos I got no idea who or where I go to help out on an escalation.
But fuck, I can take a call and instruct a motherfucker all day long...
So enough about bitching about Ye Olde Gig. Today, reading all the crap over the weekend, it's apparent that some things have just sort of gone to the wayside. As I figured, the wet fart of the recount? Yeah, by all normal things, the vote should have been invalidated, and re-done, but that's pretty much every single aspect of the 2020 selection...
Then we've got the "fear factor" coming from The Orifice of the (p)Resident, The Dementor-in-Chief, Emperor Poopypants the First, Chief Executive of the Kidsmeller Pursuivant, Good Ole Slo Xi-Den and his coterie of Handlers. They reek of fear.
Fearful People do stupid things.
And we've been witnessing an outrageous amount of stupid. Like new levels of dumbassery. I don't think I've ever seen this level of dumbfuck in politics. MAD asshattery. And that leaves us in a very sketchy position.
It's dangerous. For US, as in /ourguys/... As in fearful, stupid people doing stupid things that generally piss off and annoy the 'normies', well when the 'stupid' fails, and pushback occurs, well, they tend to push back twice as hard. And if the 'stupid' they push fails utterly and completely, well, that's what they fear most... because that shows that their shit is weak.
And that's generally when even worse things start happening. Fearful Stupid POWERFUL people who are desperately afraid of being OUT of power? Oh yeah, this will not end well. We're going to be in the crosshairs. They've ramped up the ostracizing of the 'unclean' with the Nottabug. I mean yeah Kung-Flu is real, but not near as dangerous as the Nottavaxx apparently... in fact the Israelis just came out an announced that out of like 300 new COVID cases in one day? Like 280+ of them were all with the Vaxxed. Apparently it's looking more and more like the Nottavaxx is a real nightmare.
OH! New news... hilarious actually. Seems the New Governor of Noo Yawk Kathy (MegaKaren) Hochul put a Nottavax Rule in place for everyone who works in healthcare. EVVABODY needs to be Vaxxed up to keep doing medical stuff in Noo Yawk. When confronted with the huge numbers of people who saying "Fuck you and I'm out", her first reaction was "You are all replaceable, bring in the foriegn nurses!" which, as one can well imagine, went over like a wet fart.
So, Noo Yawk, already having mad issues with having a preexisting shortage of medical workers, well, as they say "You ain't seen nothin' yet." LOTS of folks are doing the "Fuck you, I'm out!" to the point Herren Gaulieter Hochul must be gettin' a mite nervous... so her "B" plan seems to be MOR stupid. She's talking about calling out the Nasty Guard. Link HERE: https://thehill.com/homenews/state-watch/573957-ny-governor-considering-deployment-of-national-guard-to-address-health
>takes deep breath<
Absolute Genius right there Aye?
She apparently don't get that them Nasty Guard? MOST of them are -already- working in the Hospitals that're short handed. Which means essentially, the Guard is going to report in, and go right back to what they were doing BEFORE, already. 'Cept it's got one major difference. Nasty Guard don't get paid at the 'normal hospital rates' so to speak. Makes you wonder if this's intentional to put MOR monies back into the hospital's pockets.
They can't not show up if called for duty, that's a big no-no. So, essentially, they're going to get double-fucked by losing out on the anywhere from $25-75 an hour for a flat rate-at-rank DotMil bullshit pay. AND more'n likely be doing the same exact job
Let me tell you, the DotMil STILL has a pilot issue. Because during the whole Iraq thing, they brought guys back from the IRR (Inactive Ready Reserve) and forced them back into boots to fly... I knew one guy who lost everything because of that... He'd been a Chief Pilot for United... he took a $200,000.00 pay cut to fly for the DotMil AFTER he should have been loooong released. He resigned first chance he got... LOTS of pilots did... they've never recovered...
Same shit is going to happen... you watch.
Stupid people, well, lets face it, they're stupid. And even worse, they'll never admit it. So, when you get a self-reinforcing loop of 'stupid', combined with ALL the power that can be real AND imagined, that they, THEY are the "Masters of Their Destiny" and their beliefs are right and correct and anyone who dares point out their blatantly obvious delusions are insects and deplorables unworthy of their Greatness and Wisdom. By Divine Right they feel that they're the Chosen Ones to lead the ignorant deplorables into "The Light".
And if you dare to point out this level of stupid? Well, in the long run they -do- have Nuclear Weapons and man, considering just how fucked up our current (p)Resident is? Yeah That right there is enough to keep me up at night, to a point. After all, I'm only 18 miles away from McDill as the Crow Flies, and if they, (for the values of 'they') lets say Joe Chink Up and Drops on in retaliation for the (p)Resident breaking from their control, well...
I'm well inside the "crispy zone"... Hell, I'm in the "Find a solid wall that might not collapse, dress ALL in black, and face towards the 'flash' with my middle finger extended to leave an interesting 'shadow' on the wall when I go >'poof!'<
I don't put anything past them at this point...
Yeah, worst case scenario, but who ever called me "Mister Cheery" don't know me worth a shit Aye?
So, More Later I Remain The Intrepid Reporter
