I’m thinking and with my thoughts I ramble out on my keyboard any number of subjects I want to share with you my loyal readers. I’m nearly finished with the book I’ve been working on since December. It’s the last of the Tequila Sunrise series.
I could discuss with you the weather, especially down in Texas blamed, as per Governor Abbot on the Green New Deal, though it isn’t even a law passed by Congress yet.
I thought of my present book that is available, A Man’s Passion. Marketing is working feverishly on getting bookstores and others interested in signing on and selling this novella as well as me who have sent them various ideas that might bear fruit. I do wish selling books in this day and age was easier.
But, then again, selling books was never an easy endeavor. Stephen King was rejected over 30 times before someone took a chance on Carrie. Moby Dick never made it past dusty library shelves. It’s still an unpopular read because it is so boringly long, and why Melville worked in the US Patent office.
I could talk about the COVID pandemic and the fact I received my second dose today. No side effects yet, though I’m sure my arm will ache a bit tomorrow. The numbers are going down across the state and country it appears, though these variants that are coming out may become a new nightmare. We’ll see how that bears out in the months to come.
I won’t talk about Trump mostly because there’s really nothing to talk about. I knew the impeachment was a complete waste of taxpayer money. There’s a much more urgent crisis than that loser.
The progressive wing of the Democratic Party wants to pass stuff they know won’t fly in two years after the mid-term elections when they will lose both houses because no one want to spend billions on student debt relief and a 15 dollar per hour minimum wage. If you think prices for dining out, buying groceries and the like are too expensive now, just wait when that goes through.
Here’s an idea for those congressmen and women and senators out there, cut your own wages in half, eliminate Trumps tax cut, and decrease wasteful spending on pet projects. Then maybe Biden won’t be in such a hurry to pass something as ludicrous as a minimum wage increase or forgiving student loan debt. WE might then have something like a balanced budget or even a surplus to work with instead.
