Tomorrow

I’ll get up and have my coffee, get ready, and head out.

I’m going to vote first, as is my right.

Then I’m going to travel freely between there and my place of business, as is my right.

I’ll be there for several hours, performing tasks in exchange for a wage I have agreed to, as is my right.

And my employer will let me, or not, as is their right.

Then I’ll come home and enjoy the fruits of my labor, as is my…well, I think you’re beginning to get the point of this.

No matter what happens tomorrow we all need to be on the same page, chapter and verse about what we are as a country.

I know it isn’t going to happen but I am hopeful that some of us can see eye to eye. There are those of us who don’t wish to harm another living soul. To just live peacefully and enjoy what we’ve worked for. Some of us will even help out folk from time to time if we feel it’s necessary. And if it’s welcome.

Be peaceful. Be kind. Be decent.

Taking a break…

Taking a break from the political for a bit.

I’m tired.

I’m mostly tired of people just taking every single little conspiracy theory they come across, or the next shocking picture or article and just running with it.

I’m tired of morons with access to the internet believing every little thing they hear.

I’m tired of people who are pinning all their hopes and dreams on one or two people (that the different sides of government picked) and going straight up fanatical about them.

POTUS isn’t the second coming. I know that. He knows that. I just wish his fans would get it.

Biden is just a tired, old man. This isn’t an insult, I’m a tired old man, too. No, he’s being used and handled. And the people who are doing it should be brought up on charges for elder abuse.

That’s it. That’s the post.

The Real First POTUS

I love these little pieces of odd history. This was copied from Unknown America, a trivia book by Micheal P. Hart.

Some historians challenge the commonly held belief that George Washington was the first President of the United States. Some claim that it was really a man named John Hanson who died in 1783. Sometimes called the β€œForgotten President,” Hanson was the first elected President under the Articles of Confederation. The Articles of Confederation, which were formally known as the Articles of Confederation and Perpetual Union, was an agreement among all thirteen original states that served as the First Constitution. It was drafted by a committee appointed by the Second Continental Congress beginning on July 12, 1776, and an approved version was sent to the states for ratification in late 1777. The formal ratification by all thirteen states was completed in early 1781. Government under the Articles was superseded by today’s Constitution and Federal form of government in 1789.
