The way I see it....

Our government has been taken over by the Far Right of the Republican side and the Far Left of the Democrat side. Nothing is happening legislatively because of these two factions. The Far Right and Far Left will only vote for things that appease them directly with nothing for the other side.

My question, and maybe I see a light in the tunnel with Trump's recent meeting with middle of the road Republicans and Democrats on tax reform, is are there enough centrist to override the Far Right and the Far Left and actually pass common sense tax reform? How many Far Right are there and how many Far Left are there and is that number more than 50 in the Senate and 218 in the House? If it is than we are screwed but if the number is less and those centrist can come together to put through a plan with everyone getting something but no one getting everything maybe this whole democracy thing has a chance.

Let's hope Trump is the great deal maker he says he is and can bring the centrist to the table and over power the Far Right and Far Left so we can start moving legislation through that benefits the American public and not just the fringe elements.

Self Driving Cars Exposed!!!!

I knew it!! Of course cars can't drive themselves.

And yes I'm joking. This was from a test to see how pedestrian and other drivers react to a "driverless" car that is showing through external light on the car when it is driving, yielding or accelerating.

That's about right.....

Too stupid.....

There's our President looking directly at the sun without protective eye wear. That someone had to shout out "Don't Look" tells me that the White House was prepared for this situation and the person that called out was the person told to watch Trump throughout the eclipse to remind him not to look.

Melania is rumored to have kept the her eclipse glasses as she found the Donald to be better looking when she wore them.

And also trending....

Eclipse is actually a new concept where you can get your hair cut online

Job Taker

Reverse Much

So much for more CEO's waiting in the wings to take the place of all the CEO's that could no longer stand w/Trump.

For every CEO that drops out of the Manufacturing Council, I have many to take their place. Grandstanders should not have gone on. JOBS!

Best Idea Yet........

I haven't worked out the details but I'm pretty sure we can fix this mess with closed-circuit TV and a replica of the Fox & Friends set.

I don't care who you are...that's funny

A Starbucks customer wearing a Trump shirt was given her drink with the name BUILD A WALL instead of her own name and that was what was called out as they do at Starbucks and all the employees laughed at her.

If you are stupid enough to still be wearing a political shirt well after the election is over you deserve all the ridicule you have coming. What were you thinking woman!!!! I think it is even funnier though because it is Trump shirt and he is such a train wreck in process yet this lady still supports him. Train wrecks are quite the spectacle to watch but not so much if you're on the train and there in lies the rub, we are all on the train this time.

All Burnt Up

All that is left of our Oiler sitting in the yard after the accident, explosion and inferno on the freeway.

1350 Gallon tank impacted with center divider. Very tall center divider at that point of the freeway.

Puncture hole that fed the diesel fueled fire.

So hot it melted the rims into puddles of aluminum.

Driver got out OK but is in the hospital. Eyewitnesses said one or more of the rear wheels blew apart and the driver with only some control at 65 MPH steered the several ton oiler over into the center divider to stop it. If divider had been lower the truck might have flipped over the divider and the outcome might have been much worse.

Abstract Thought

After the sale of the company I work for we have been building the accounting data base for the entire company spread amongst about a half a dozen accountants and admin people. We are a $500M a year in revenue company and we are building the data base by hand. This is nuts. Sometimes I feel like George Clooney amongst the rest of the convicts as their understanding of abstract thought sometimes is lacking.  Most of the other convicts in the group are the center convict just going along for the ride and not putting to much thought in it, though a few are the left convict who think they know more than they do and are proved lacking daily. I'm not sure where to categorize the software guy. He's knowledgeable but can't seem to remember all the intricacies of his own product. I've come across several items where there is problems and then he remembers them. He'll tell me one way to do something and when I do it I find a problem with his way. I would think a man who does several if not more installations each year would have this down pat. He's been with the software development company for 20+ years.  

abstract thinking

The  final, most complex stage in the development of cognitive thinking, in which thought is characterized by adaptability,flexibility, and the use of concepts and generalizations. Problem solving is accomplished  by drawing logical conclusions from a set of observations, for example, making hypotheses and testing them.This type of thinking is developed by 12 to 15 years of age, usually after some degree of education.Ipsy-chiatry, many disorders are characterized by the inability to think abstractly. Compare concrete thinking, syncretic thinking.

Either Way...

So this morning a young guy shows up with a 18 wheeler dump truck full of Class 6 aggregate(dirt/rock/sand mixture) for one of our jobs. We figure out where he is supposed to go and send him on his way. The same guy just showed up at the office again this afternoon with another 18 wheeler full of aggregate for the same job. I ask him weren't you here this morning with the same load and he answers in the affirmative. The stupid is strong with this one, either that or he's got some killer weed in the cab. Of course either way I don't think he should be driving a truck of that size.

Seinfeld Fans?

I noticed  a restaurant on my drive to work yesterday and had to go back this morning to see if what I saw was actually what I saw and sure enough it was.

And this is the script from the Seinfeld Episode

Elaine: Well, Mr. Peterman, I've got a really good idea for a hat. It combines the spirit of old Mexico with a little big city panache. I like to call it the Urban Sombrero.

J. Peterman: (rubbing his neck) Oh, my neck is one gargantuan monkey fist.

Elaine: Are you okay, Mr. Peterman?

J. Peterman: Yes, yes. Go on, go on, go on.

Elaine: Well, see, it's... businessmen taking siestas. You know, it's the, uh, the Urban Sombrero.

[Peterman walks out, groaning.]

Elaine: Mr. Peterman?

The quote from Elaine is right there on the door

Life it seems.....

With the company I work for now being sold for the 3rd time in 9 years....

....I have come to the conclusion that I'm just a prison bitch being passed around from corporation to corporation for a couple a packs of smokes.
