    Oh, W-A-Y too many things and too little time.

    B’lieve, tho, that high on my priority list would be some spectacularly painful treatment for identity thieves, ransomware blackmailers, and SPAM callers.

    And public, now . . . like a sorta Monday-Nite-Special all-channel TV event where their activities are exposed and their just rewards bestowed.

    Next, prob’ly a significant reduction in central government intrusion into individuals’ lives, a re-adherence to the 2nd, 4th, and 10th Amendments.

    Then a major damper on biased, agenda-driven, misleading propaganda from major news networks and a return to local news at breakfast, lunch, and dinner with national and international stuff at 11 p.m. And NO MENTION of feminine hygiene products, waste-elimination problems, or covid death exaggerations while people are eating dinner.

    A complete removal of all fast-food advertising on TV, radio, and public venues. Hey . . . NObody in North America needs constant subliminal encouragement to eat cheeseburgers, sugary drinks, pizza, and various forms of fried potatoes.

    Establishment of a cap on professional athletes’ salaries and bonuses such that none can be paid more annually than the President. Surplus revenue would then be escrowed into pension and health-care accounts for when they’ve pissed away all their earnings. That might make it possible for a dad to take his two kids to a ball game without taking out a second mortgage on the house.

    Get rid of those mind-numbingly asinine commercials with geckos, emus, Joe Namath, Mike Lindell, Phil Swift, and anything related to self-congratulatory events such as the Oscars, Emmys, Golden Globes, and so on.

    I’d also like for the SeaBees to erect a nice multi-drop gallows, several pillories, and some stocks near the Capitol steps . . . just as a nice little hint; they wouldn’t need to be used (at least more than once).

    Finishing The Wall is simply a non-negotiable given.

    Term and/or age limits for “legislators” might be nice, too, and harsh penalties for overt lying on the campaign trail and then caving to the Swamp once in office.

    And given my druthers, we’d get the UN out of the US and the US out of the UN. We also shouldn’t contribute a penny to any international climate agreement until India, China, and Russia reduce their smog/CO2 emissions by at least half.

    Get Tlaib and Omar out of Congress.

    O.K. As you were . . . I gotta have some breakfast and go confer with my cardio guy early this mornin, but first, my pre-dawn bike ride.

    I already gave the kid a gift, so I won’t waste any time giving him an overview of changes that he knows aren’t going to happen. It only pisses him off, and I don’t want to do that on his birthday. So what did I give Kid for his birthday?

    No, not the car. The Calendar. I was going to put a down payment on the car with the $20,000 he owes me but see, this is what happens when you don’t pay your friends back. All you get is a calendar.

    Happy 39th Birthday, Amigo. May the good Lord give you many more passes “around the sun.”

    Thanks much Mustang. I’ll enjoy that calendar. I’ve seen Aston Martin’s on Jay Leno’s Garage segments. I wouldn’t mind having one. Other than the XKE (1) and Lamborghini Miura (2), the Aston’s are 3rd in sexy.

    And many more trips for you and all here !

    Well . . . my blood potassium is elevated beyond the “safe” range (6.1). The suspicion is that my kidney disease (stage III center) has progressed to early stage IV.

    So now I hafta reduce my potassium intake (no bananas, cantaloupe, oranges . . . all that healthful stuff) and get another blood draw in a few days to see how bad my kidneys are.

    My “bad” cholesterol is too high for my doctor’s standards. The overall isn’t terrible (under 130), but the LDL is over 80 and the HDL is under 40. So, no more beef, burgers, butter, and so on.

    My B/P has been PERFECT for about a month now, but today in the exam room it was unacceptable (161/91). I’m confident that was DocSmockShock, but numbers is numbers.

    And to top it all off, the Navy pharmacy STILL refuses to fill the doc’s prescription for the stuff (Entresto) that brought my B/P back down under control.

    I stopped by my perio guy on the way home ‘cuz I hadn’t gotten a workup proposal they promised me. (They’d hosed up my e-mail address.) So I looked at it and discovered they can’t install a post (implant) to anchor the bridge that has to come out, so they want to just pull the anchor tooth (which has gone rotten under the bridge) and cap the canine that’s holding up the front end of it. Only good thing about that is that the original plan would’ve been around $4000, but the fallback plan will be only around $600. ‘Course I won’t be able to chew on that side any more.

    And if that’s not enough, next week I hafta see the dermatologist (the one who keeps carving on me).

    Man . . . I gotta tell ya, this gettin old stuff is really annoying.

    BAYSIDER; The 17th? WHY?
    Yes on the cat, of course!! Agree on a great list.

    KID….are the ferals allowed in? How’re they getting along with ‘garage kitty’???!!!

    BOCOPRO…..GAD!!! It’s all daunting, isn’t it. Ya, I’ve had that BP and it was ‘white coat syndrome’, not that my BP is always good!
    Don’t know what else to day except you need to stay HEALTHY….for US 🙂
    I know we all think the world of you xxxxx

    BY THE WAY:
    I have to have an EYE TOOTH pulled next Monday morning at 7 am 😦 I INVENTED a solution to the looks of it before the new tooth is implanted four months later…the dentist was amazed and said he could accommodate me and ‘WHAT A GREAT IDEA!”
    He’ll probably make millions on it and I’ll never know, of course!!

    Two total cats. One feral came about 3 years ago and has been inside/outside after moving in after a year on the back porch and garage. #2 has been hanging around on and off, (might be gone for a couple days and come back). The last week or so, he has moved to a cat bed on the back porch which he really enjoys as it keeps him out of the rain and I’m socializing him. First one is Kitty, last one is Max. Neither of them care for Mad. I’m the cat whisperer I suppose.

    WE ARE ALL FANS OF TRUMP HERE….. I have a question:

    Was Trump really as bad as the Left AND Right are labeling him particularly now when the Left tries to defend the HUGE spending crap Biden wants? The Left’s answer to that is TRUMP WAS WORSE………..
    And the Right (unlike the Left) is honest and admits Trump’s deficit was BAD.

    I’m disappointed because, SO OFTEN, the Right has to just shut its mouth and acquiesce that the stinkin’ Left is right.

    The 17th amendment upset a balance in our wonderful system of Federalism and shoved states’ interests under the bus. Senators were to represent the interests of states. Congressmen were to represent the interests of individual citizens grouped by small constituencies. Formerly, senators were elected by state legislators who they represented. All that is lost. Now they are just an unequal representative of a larger constituency of citizens.

    No cake Z. Lobster maybe. Speaking of which, we were in Sam’s Club the other day and I see packages of frozen Alaskan King Crab legs in packages, smaller than a loaf of bread for $60 + and I immediately think,geeez only people on welfare can afford to buy these.

    Which is true. Mad works at Costco, tons of H1B’s from India and elsewhere here working for GE and P&G and buying tons of stuff with their EBT cards. They’re the only ones buying the stuff. Then when something rings up you can’t use an EBT card for, they pull out a wad of $100 bills.

    I can’t believe how high prices are now….I’ve been enjoying getting food delivered from IMPERFECT FOODS (except when they write me and address me as “dear Imperfect Customer!”HA!)…they use oddly shaped veg and fruit people might otherwise not buy but they taste fine and are cheaper. NOT ANYMORE! I’m noticing there is no benefit from buying their stuff anymore except it’s using stuff that would have been thrown away…

    How would things be different with no 17th amendment?
    Elevate federalism = dampen the expanding power of the federal entity – expanding beyond bounds intended or needed.

    The left inveigh that without the 17th we’d deprive citizens of their right to representation. They totally ignore we deprive STATES of their right to representation with it!

    The 17th concentrates more power in the federal government. More federal control in the states. Without it I think we’d have a better balance of power between state and federal levels. Neither should get “too much” or too little. Looking for re-distributing that balance.

    When each entity has territory to protect and a balanced means of doing it, it’s harder for one to usurp too much power and become the tyrant we’ve seen emerge without shame in the last 18 months. Something akin to the 3 branches of federal government, each fighting for place and territory to check the other. Humans are humans. This would not mean the end of corruption, etc. I’m not an idiot. But it offers the potential of adding roadblocks to nefarious actors.

    Minor – Would remove some issues of campaign finance
    Less incentive to states to act as lobbyists. Not gone entirely! But less pressure since they have actual representatives now in the federal government.

    The 10th Amendment reserves ALL powers not expressly delegated to the federal government to the states or the people. We need central, federal power to stand up to enemies without. We need strong decentralized institutions (along with that noisome 2nd amendment lurking in the background) to stand up to tyrants within. The original design furthers this better than does removing from states their representative voice in the federal system.

    Remember the reason for its passage: to halt problems with deadlocked legislatures, leaving some states without representation for weeks or more. Did we have to throw out the baby with the bathwater? It was proposed in 1912 and passed the next year. The SAME year we got Woodrow Wilson instead of the better choice Taft (thanks to a 3rd party candidate, btw). Without the 17th we might actually have a functional 10th.

    Kid, sorry I’m late to the party, but I wanted to leave belated birthday wishes nonetheless. I hope it was your best one yet.

    Baysider, PREACH! I have always said this about the 17th Amendment; I wish we could rally people to repeal it, but – much like term limits & pay cuts – none of the scoundrels in Congress would EVER vote to reduce and/or limit their own power, influence, and/or salaries.

    Z, so with you on Mike Lindell. Plus I hate his pillows. DG & I SO BADLY wanted to like his pillows, but they were horrible! The only ones that are at all tolerable are the little travel ones that are small enough to fit in the saddlebags of our Harleys to make camping easier. I can’t even with his “we’re gonna decertify the election” crap anymore. I just can’t.
