I, like many, am still struggling to find the words to describe this day’s events in our country’s history. I can’t wrap my logical mind around the FACT that Trump committed a CRIME in office and the GOP is saying it’s okay, not bad enough to punish. It’s like they are saying “We like his hatred so much and the money we create with it, that we don’t care that he disregards our Constitution.” And while McConnell crown him King, the GOP will be holding his train, I can picture it in my imagination, sadly.
And while this is going on in America, England is Brexiting today. It’s not a good day for good people in the world. It’s sad and disgusting. And now we have to live with the results of what we allowed to happen in our governments. I don’t even know what to do or how to completely think about all that I watched transpire in the hallowed halls of our Senate today.
I cannot wait to read John Bolton’s book “In the room where it happened” It’s going to tell us the whole nasty story of the conspiracy hatched by Trump to gain an edge over his possible opponent,
Tonight the former Ukrainian Ambassador, Marie Yovonovich, resigned. I can only imagine how devastated and let down by her own government that she has protected for 30 years basically said the crimes she witnessed don’t matter. And him terrorizing her during her testimony doesn’t matter either. I would resign tonight too if I were her.
I did a Youtube on this topic, and a couple others tonight as well. I was just so livid after they took the vote on allowing witnesses and documents and the GOP got their way. No. This will surely embolden #45 to do something even more outrageous because he CAN, they just made it so. There is NO oversight of the executive powers. There is nothing bad enough that he could do that the GOP would hold him accountable for, nothing. Democracy is under a hostile attack. This could be the end of it in the USA.
Other crap that is on my mind….
The cost of housing here in Maine jumped up 24% – Yes, TWENTY FOUR percent – in the last year! Part of that jump is the influx of people moving here for the new marijuana laws and access. Unfortunately, right now we are also the oldest population wise state in the USA, we need younger residents and workers here. But it’s crazy expensive now to rent. A typical 1 bedroom apartment is around $1500. a month now…that insanity. AND it’s a seller’s market at the moment…
If you didn’t see the incredible pictures of the surface of the sun taken from the telescope in Hawaii you all should check them out. It’s pretty incredible, look here. The telescope is a new one located at the top of a volcano…the shots are stunning.
Winter cannot end soon enough for me. We have basically 48 days til Spring. I’ve been checking out new garden designs, one for herb gardening that is a spiral that’s really cool. I’m debating veggies this year, maybe more herbs and productive plants. I have 6 clones coming in March, a couple different strains this time…should be a fun summer grow.
I’m battling insomnia tonight something fierce. I screwed up and stopped taking my manganise tablets for 2 days and wow am I some joint sore tonight. I took a couple a while ago, but I think I missed the window of opportunity in preventing the pain. Gotta keep moving, even though you stiffen up. If I stop I swear I won’t be able to restart again. Since I am wide awake I decided to cook down some tincture into concentrate so I can make another batch of gummy delights tomorrow. I figure since I am stranded for the weekend because my car is in the shop I might as well do something productive. Going to make red this time, cherry. Should be a smokin batch, this concentrate is strong.
Ok, the gummy I ate before I cooked that down is kicking in and I need to get at least a couple hours sleep so I can think tomorrow. Need to do some calculating and thinking on things. Hope everyone survived the day without drowning themselves in a bottle over the vote…fuck.
Peace ~ MB
