Some Days Just Suck… Who Knew?

Yes. I spent an inordinate amount of time working on that title.

Like it says, some days just suck… or SDJS if you like. I suppose that you could resort to ‘shit happens’ or ‘it is what it is’ but in this heat I thought something fresh might be in order.

I’m feeling a bit under the weather, which is just another way to say the heat is getting to me this week. I feel like I’ve done three weeks work in 5 days and only accomplished one half day’s worth of successful effort. With this heat I suppose it could be compared to running up a large sand dune in the mid day sun. I hear what your thinking; yes, I’d rather be hot than cold so I can’t complain too much about the heat but it seems to come naturally when you’re standing in the middle of what feels like a giant oven.
Apparently 50 Shades Of Gray is worse than thousands of them. Who knew?

Then you have Father Dwight Longnecker saying bat shit crazy stuff like this when talking about the Colorado shooting:

A friend of mine who is an exorcist says this is why the ministry of exorcism is so exhausting and grueling — because the demons constantly lie. Whenever evil is manifested, it wears a mask. The evil ones squirm and hide. They flatter one moment and hiss with rage the next. They are one moment obsequious and aggressive the next. Because they are liars, reason and trust can find no grasp. Pure Evil is random, violent and unpredictable.

Apparently the predictable non-randomness of religion keeps it from being evil? Who knew?

Apparently there are some members of the representative government of the USA that still know what the Constitution is about. Who knew?

Senator John McCain (R-AZ) spoke well of the vision of America jeopardized by your approach
when he said: “When anyone, not least a member of Congress, launches specious and degrading
attacks against fellow Americans on the basis of nothing more than fear of who they are and
ignorance of what they stand for, it defames the spirit of our nation, and we all grow poorer
because of it.” More recently, Rep. Jim Sensenbrenner (R-WI) provided a much-needed
reminder about what religious freedom means in the United States: “…the First Amendment
prohibits the government from making a distinction between what is a ‘good religion’ and what
is a ‘bad religion.’”

Then there comes a bit of inspiration to make the day a little less gloomy.

Speaking of convincing just about anyone of just about anything here is one of the ways to do so.

Note: I’m counting entries and contacting winners for the Juneteenth contest this weekend. It has been a complete beat-down over the last 5-6 weeks at work and home. Thanks to all those that participated.
