The crazies are everywhere

Had an Electrolux guy come over for a servicing. I mentioned my pending trip to Canada. He said, well don't shoot at any balloons. Ha ha. That it's ridiculous to say they are from China, when China can spy on us in more sophisticated ways. Because actually, "they" are promoting a UFO frenzy, keeping us scared, so "they" can come along and save us all, thereby attaining world domination. I asked who "they" are. "Biden, Obama, Hillary Clinton, George W. Oh, and the Pope." Okaaaaaaay. Yipes.

stuff. I've heard he's a meth head. He's yammering away at his employee about the Trump running for a House seat and being elected speaker and so on. I could tell his guy was just nodding along wishing he would STFU. I really wished I could get close enough to get a video with good audio but there was no way. I would have got some views with that one.

"We know we can trust our military to spot the balloons and deal with them competently. And we know we can trust Biden to listen to them, READ the report, and give them the appropriate Go Ahead signal."

He did take the machine for servicing and tune up. Also the cord wasn't recoiling back into the unit. Will get it back after my trip.
