Aw, that’s a nice idea

It’s an international movement…the repair cafe! You bring your broken junk in and old duffers fix it.

I suppose, technically, old duffers fix the machines, old biddies sew up the teddy bears and young whippersnappers sort out the computers. Principle remains.

I mean, yes…it has its origins in sustainable blah blah help the planet blah how dare you blah blah. I’m willing to overlook that because I love the idea.

I just stumbled out of a Zoom meeting into Gin O’Clock. I’m off. Watching the SOTU tonight, are we?

‘Watching the SOTU?”

No. I consciously and deliberately choose with extreme prejudice, to ignore it completely, skipping news articles that mention it.

Sorry, just came in from chipping ice off the front porch and clearing a little snow before it turns into a mess. I’m a little steamed from that miserable job.

So a “fix-it” shop, eh?

‘Watching the SNAFU?”

Not on your nelly.

It’s a good idea to start fixing things again and making things less disposable. Make us less dependent on foreign countries for manufactured goods, keep the money in our own countries.

I’m Canadian but I can’t stand the sight of FJB, just like I can’t stand the sight of Justin Castreau. The whole government accounting to the people thing is a bad joke now anyway, they only do SOTU to show off.

I’d rather spend my time cleaning the cat box, by hand, grain by grain.

I might watch President Trump’s “fisking” of the Lyin’Biden SOTU Fib-A-Thon….

I’m a Truther Social member so I should be able to see it in real time!

SOTU? No. Nuh-uh. Nope. It’s my night to weigh the lint from the dryer.

I’m a political junkie and there is no way in hell I’ll put myself thru watching a heavily medicated demented old man squint and slur thru a poorly written gaslighting script. It’s sad really.
The donks will stand and bark and clap like seals, the rinos will sit and pout. The donks will turn off their TVs immediately following the gaslighting. The rinos will give a rebuttal that will be viewed by nobody because the non-donks will also head off to the bar.
And so here we are…..

The fixit shops are tax free too. You give them cash and they give you back the fixed whatever. I’m pretty sure the duffers and old biddies put the cash in their pockets and that’s it.

The young’uns fill out the schedule C until they’re on their own.

I never watch the SOTU theater, regardless of who the ringmaster is because it’s not an actual report, it’s a pep rally.

And anyone who understands the way our government works knows promises they don’t intend to keep will be made to hornswaggle the gullible.

The one time I tried with Barry Big ears Mrs D couldn’t hear it over the roaring noises, (obscene variations questioning his truths and his parents state of matrimony when he was conceived), coming out of my mouth every time Barry opened his.

I refer to it now as “There’ll be pie in the sky when you die” speech.

Heh. I was gonna stroll in way after the final call and make some witty jibe about not watching the SOTU.

But I see y’all pretty much covered it.

Morning reviews of the SOTU farce featured MTG and others yelling “LIAR” amidst boos and catcalls illuminating Lyin’Biden’s lying.

When has PedoJoe ever refrained from embarrassing a Republican, as he claimed he was “not revealing names of those Republicans who planned to cut SS, Medicare and Medicaid as revealed in a document now in his office.”

Chairman Josef Stolen, indeed.

I ran across someone on a podcast who takes in old robot vacuums people have discarded and fixes them up. Has a small army of them cleaning his place!
I applaud that kind of thrift.

I hate the SOTU, no matter who’s president. Disgusting spectacle, and I don’t believe any initiative announced during the speech ever comes to pass.

I’m just waiting for a president who asks at the outset if everyone would remain quiet until the end, including his own supporters.

Amen, Stoaty. My preference is that in order to satisfy the Constitutional requirement that the President report to Congress on the state of the union, that the report should be in writing.

…or maybe via Twitter… (-:

In writing! Could they stop Joe from eating the softserve colored crayons?

Beware: more than one link in a comment is apt to earn you a trip to the spam filter, where you will remain -- cold, frightened and alone -- until I remember to clean the trap. But, hey, without Akismet, we'd be up to our asses in...well, ass porn, mostly.
