Five Under the Fedora Thoughts Mays and Brady, McDonalds, Wendy’s and Church, Mitch being a Bitch, No Regrets and an oddity

Today Tom Brady the Greatest Football player who ever played the game only managed 3 pts against a horrible Carolina team that just traded away their best player.

The last time Brady had a losing record this late in a season as a starter is never.

Willie Mays lost it all at once, Brady hasn’t quite lost it but I suspect his marital troubles have been enough to make the difference since his biggest strength has always been his head

This week both McDonalds and Wendy’s had no carbon for their soft drinks, McD’s gave out cans, Wendys had vitamin water.

Meanwhile the part that my church’s furnace needs to be fixed has not come in in the two weeks since the furnace broke and the heating guy ordered it.

I’m old enough to remember when the US wasn’t a 3rd world nation on this stuff and if you were alive during the Trump years so do you.

With the Democrats in full retreat the decision of Mitch McConnell to pull funding for General Don Bolduc in NH is inexplicable. Well maybe not.

If he things he has the majority in hand he just might figure he would rather risk a deep state democrat than a Trump loyal member of the GOP not part of the establishment.

Given what we’ve seen from the justice department under Merrick Garland I’m totally convinced that Mitch deserves a statue for keeping him off the supreme court but this is a BS move, particularly when for decades we conservatives have been urged to hold our noses to unite against the left.

I keep hearing people say they regret their vote for Bush or Romney or McCain.

I don’t. Gore in office on 9/11 would have been a disaster. Not only were both Romney and McCain were better than Obama but I suspect a lot of the recruitment of folks willing to sic the FBI on pro-life survivors of concentration camp from Obama.

The were all the right choice given the alternative and I don’t regret it one bit. What they did afterwards doesn’t change this.

Finally I’ve come down with Pneumonia. I’ve spent more time sick in the last month than I have in years

I went to urgent care this morning and there was quite a crowd and a very long wait, the nurses and the NP was flat out but were doing the best they could.

There was one oddity. In the three hours I was there A lot of patients came and went but with a single exception all of them had one thing in common.

All were white.

Now 35 or 40 years ago demographically this would not have been se odd, but as a person who works in a place where you can count the white folks on the fingers of one hand I found it VERY odd and living in the town with a large Spanish speaking population I found it very odd

This was not a high end place, nor somewhere that didn’t take Mass Health nor was this demographic split the case the last time I was there three weeks ago. Yet this time there were no black or brown or even Asian faces there among the patients..

It doesn’t really mean anything and as I said it’s not the norm for the place but it was so unusual in my town these days that it really jumped out at me
