Reality beats any opinion including my own.
You have a point, but it’s minor, imo. They “know” that they cannot continue to do good governing unless they continue to be reelected. And THAT means that reelection is job one.
My lesdyxia caused me to see the first text as “more fries” … which isn’t EXACTLY wrong, alas…
When the kid was just getting mobile, he really MUCH preferred to walk. For a little way. I always wore the “kid-seat” backpack so “we” could continue the walk to my own satisfaction. By the time he was Calvin’s age, he had gotten into the “only two speeds” mode: Full speed ahead or full stop. We had only three rules for “out”:
If we are on pavement you WILL hold an adult hand, and if you wiggle loose the we will immediately go home.
You must ALWAYS be able to point directly at your adult. If you cannot see them, you cannot correctly point, so KEEP THEM IN VIEW!
If called, you must immediately say “Coming” in your outdoor voice, then go to your adult.
The other one was not a rule, but a politeness: Outdoor voice may be used only when you’re far enough away so the adult doesn’t wince, drop things and cover their ears.
Our cat has a dozen or so sleep spots. They change from day to day, week to week and so forth. What IS clearly true: She not only sleeps around, she does it a LOT!
I have a preference that when I start acting like a sponge (for days at a time), please unhook the feeding tubes.
Nah. Bob’s the apple.
The first job is to get elected. After that, the ONLY important job is to be *re*elected. To which end, one must raise funds, and occasionally have a staff member do something for a constituent. Legislative work is optional, though again, you need to look as if you’re doing something.
Placebos sometimes work better than designed drugs.
I have strange-shaped feet. So much of the time, I wear carpet slipper equivalents (or just socks). Waddling, not so much, but “flop slip-flop slip-flop” is common.
Like taxes, I think folks should have the ability to choose the curriculum for their kids. Two from column A and three from column B, though, not what to put into the columns. Because that’s expert territory.
