Yes, the last workday(for a lot of people) is here,

and along with it:

Everybody knows what would be the appropriate things to do,

but most have neither the balls nor honor to do any of them.
But there’s another obvious question. What to do with Pelosi?

If the Woodward book is accurate, the Speaker of the House was involved in a potential military coup against the elected President of the United States. As the New York Post’s Miranda Devine has written:

Milley was also in direct contact with House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, at whose direction he appears to have initiated not only the Pentagon meeting but overtures to the heads of the Central Intelligence Agency and National Security Agency.

Not to mention that his controversial call to the Chinese general took place after his conversation with Pelosi.

Are members of the U.S. House going to sit quietly on this? Where are January 6 Committee Republican House members Liz Cheney and Adam Kinzinger? They have no problem with Pelosi urging the Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff to commit treason? Really?

They might have a problem, but see' balls' and 'honor' above.

A little more on 'things have improved'

Cataract surgery used to be a serious surgery with long recovery time.  That's after they figured out how to do it.

Now you go in, they get you prepped, put you to sleep, you wake up, and maybe an hour later you go home.  It's still serious, but the methods and materials have advanced so much...

It's going to be strange walking around with one lens out of my glasses for a few weeks, but worth it.

Friend of daughters' did a portrait of her dog as a gift,

it's pretty good.

On going full North Korea, part of Australia is giving 'Nork' a bad name

The Andrews Government is making more bad changes to Victoria’s gun laws.

The latest changes will allow police down to the rank of inspector to ban shooters from holding firearm licences for at least 10 years – for getting nothing more than a speeding fine.

People hit with a ban will also be subjected to warrantless searches of their homes or cars at any time, and barred from going to any place where guns may be stored or used.

And yes, it gets worse.  It's the kind of "You can be banned for ANYTHING" law that Watts and Hogg have wet dreams about.

The asshat behind this looks like- well, she looks like that vicious asshole from the Ministry of Magic in Harry Potter.

I'd say "Screw Australia" but they've already done it to themselves.

Few days ago I mentioned having something to show,

but the surgery put a speedbump on that: after cataract surgery you're not supposed to lift anything ten pounds and over, and this is.  And it's not currently in a place good for pictures.

So that'll have to wait a few days more.

Just because I feel like it,

a bit of early data

There are people who truly deserve

the whipping post in the town square.

For a start.

Because nothing says "We Care" like "I don't care if there's no power

in the heat wave, Globular Climate Changery is far more important than you not melting!"

Ah, Californicated, it's become damn near impossible to parody you.

Those idiots are back

Well, they weren't really gone, but they're making noise again.  The "You don't need a gun because they're bad, you just need enough hand-to-hand/knife/sword/staff training and then you won't need a gun!" bullshit.

Sounds like the clowns I used to know when I was playing in the SCA, "Just keep your sword/knife/etc. by the bed, and they're more honorable than using a gun anyway."

Yes, I've actually heard that crap.  Because when someone breaks into your home or attacks you in a parking lot you should be worried about 'honorable combat'...

Milley finally puts out a denial;

a 'denial' like this is bullshit.  

This bastard did it.  If he had any honor he'd resign.  But he doesn't, so he won't.  And Biden wants him there because he'll do what Biden & Handlers want.

'Several thousand' or a couple of hundred left behind,

'C'mon, man, that was two weeks ago!'

These people are beyond disgusting.  And the 'go along and get along' Republicans and Democrats won't actually do a damn thing about it.
