Just a piece of trivia

On this day in 2018, the tRump Administration shut down the Presidential Champions program for adults, in which I was heavily engaged and happy with. Every time I see his fat ass outfitted in white shorts with his hinny flapping in the breeze, I think about it and hope he breaks his ankles. There, I said it! I know I am going to hell, anyway, so I keep hoping he comes to a mishap while he enjoys taxpayer-paid sports activities, of which golf was the principle activity! Are we still paying for the SS to follow him around? Yes, we are! Phooey!

There was never any adequate explanation for the demise of the program. Was his miserable set of golf resorts gonna take up the slack with free memberships? No! Was he going to replace the secret pleasure of exercising for awards with a new program? No! He golfed every frickin weekend, while depriving self servicing, humble adults their places in the exercise world, buying their own awards with money that they earned, and wasn't given to them by anyone else! Now, I have to lean toward the Senior Olympics, in which I can do NOTHING!

Everything that Trump touches DIES. So, maybe one day his damned dick will fall off. There, I said it! June 30th is the day the PROGRAM died. Sniff...

Eff the USPS

I'm sorry, but the USPS can KMA. I can't get goods delivered through their services. They are not even pretending to attempt to deliver them anymore. You can see in their tracking service that they are just turning them around and sending them back, without ever trying to deliver them. They are now marking me as an unknown person or address, even though I have a long, long time occupancy at the address.

I am the sort of person that is very loyal, but no more. The DeJoy person accomplished his Trumpian mission and shed one more customer. I am slowing down my purchases, gonna do without for a long time, unless I can get Amazon to guarantee delivery by anyone else but the USPS. I don't give a tinker's damn what the problems of the USPS are now. I pay for the service, and when I can't get pet food delivered because the service is unreliable or now nonexistant, well, who cares about them? I can't afford to do so. I am thinking of having everything overnighted now, at tremendous extra expense. Eff the USPS.

I went into lockdown in an effort to avoid death and destruction. I have no family upon which I can rely to help me, so I am proactive in my own health matters. Guess I'll venture out into the soup to see what happens. Not looking forward to it, though.

Vince Wilfork

Wilfork has some son troubles these days, but I like Wilfork and think highly of him for the simplest of reasons:

For those that don't know, Wilfork was a nose tackle in the NFL for something like 14 years. He played mostly with the Patriots until his time was up and he switched to the Texans because his daughter wanted him to play there. I think (not 100% sure) he was the one involved with the famous Butt Fumble.

At any rate, the reasons I like Wilfork: 1) his loyalty to his wife. Players were making fun of the way his wife looked. She's not a super model or anything. He said, 'But, I love her..." in such a way that I never forgot. The others should have such loyalty and love cast in their directions, if ever they got lucky like that. When they are burying Wilfork, this is what I will remember.

But, Number 2 is awesome: Wilfork was playing for, I think the Texans, and, being a nose tackle, he was in the center of the field. Now, nose tackles are heavy guys, and Wilfork weighed between 300 and 400 pounds. They don't look like they can move at all. Well...some guy running the ball got away from everyone. He's running down the right sideline like a bunny. Wilfork sees this, and decides to get the guy. So, Wilfork runs from center field toward the pursuit. He pours it on and accelerates, making an angle adjustment halfway there, and HE nails the runner. I did not think the runner would stand up after that. He did pop up, but they showed Wilfork flying through the air to knock him out of bounds over and over again. It was awesome! It taught me a valuable lesson. Looks can be deceiving. I've never seen anything like this guy's acceleration as he saved the touchdown. It was unbelievable. Wut happened? I dunno, but I want to see it again!

I wish Wilfork well.

Tebow had gone to baseball, a sport I don't really watch. Then, he retired from that. Next thing you know, he's tried out for TE with Jacksonville, and he has a one-year contract.

Most football professionals are having a fit, saying he can't play football, etc. So, I get it, yada yada, but it bugs me when they talk about whether he will whiff on blocking. As a longstanding Tebow fan, let me tell you honey: the guy thrives on trucking people. Hell, he blocked when he was a QB. I've seen plays where he was running the ball and tacklers declined to attempt to tackle him. Tebow can do the sled at 1400 pounds, and he is not going to decline to block someone.

So, I'm just saying. Anything can happen. He might get dumped by someone who is also doing his best to stick; it could happen. But, I just want the world to know that Tebow is not going to decline to block someone. He loves it, he has always loved it, and he has the potential to be really good. No, he's not 6'5 (6'3), but his speed is decent, and something good will happen here.

He also has practiced catching down through the years. He has practiced this position even if there is no demonstrable game to show. He isn't starting cold. So, he has a shot. And, they could put him on the practice squad if one of those hopefuls beats him out. So, there it is.

My favorite player is now Mahomes. But, I will enjoy every second of Tebow's remake, and if he makes the squad, I will not know what to do if the Chiefs play the Jags. Just saying. I love to watch these guys play.

Well, there, then...

"We are aware of the statements LTG (R) Flynn made May 30 and June 1. The Army is not investigating these statements further at this time," an Army spokesperson said in a statement.

Given the fact that Flynn is retired, the Army's decision is in line with the US military's typical approach to similar situations, when potential misconduct carried out by retired members who are out of uniform does not prompt an investigation by the armed services."

First, I'd like to know who the unidentified Army spokesperson was. Above or below Secretary of the Army? Who was this? "Potential misconduct..." WTF?

Oh, but here:

"1 Jun 2021
Military.com | By Steve Beynon
The Army is investigating a Reserve officer and U.S. House candidate after he made an appearance on a partisan media show in uniform and later denied that President Joe Biden is the legitimate commander in chief.

First Lt. Alex Stovall is a chaplain candidate assigned to the Army Reserve's 91st Training Division; he enlisted in January 2013. He's running as a Republican in Arizona's 9th Congressional District, which is in the Phoenix area.

"We are aware of the situation and are investigating," Lt. Col. Simon Flake, an Army Reserve Command spokesperson, said in a statement. "The U.S. Army Reserve follows the Department of Defense's long-standing policy regarding service member involvement in partisan political campaigns to avoid the perception of DoD sponsorship, approval, or endorsement of any partisan political candidate, campaign, or cause.""

Let's review: "...follows the Department of Defense's long-standing policy regarding service member involvement in partisan political campaigns to avoid the perception of DoD sponsorship, approval, or endorsement of any partisan political candidate, campaign, or CAUSE."

Oh, I forgot, in case you don't know, Flynn, the retired military general, is white, and Stovall, the reserve 1st Lt., who also states that Biden is not the legitimate President, is black. Look up his picture. Sure seems black to me. I guess the difference is that Stovall actively drills, while Flynn runs around doing the bidding of Trump.

I dunno, people, it reflects badly on the Army. Really badly. My guess is that Stovall, a Republican, and Flynn, a Republican, both get away with it. They should both be kicked out.

Why is the Army suddenly responding to these issues? Because people want to know why Flynn, et al, get to run around undermining our Government? Who's running this show, anyway?

I want Austin Lloyd to speak up strongly and start kicking their asses. He can easily do it. I want him to instruct the Secretary of the Army to recall Flynn for investigative purposes. And, guess who signed the EO enabling the Secretary to do just that? tRumpy.
