A few months ago a FB acquaintance of mine went on my wall and threw a Millennial sized tantrum because he said Boomers ( I’m actually a Gen X’er ) like me were making the equivalent of $ 70,000 thousand dollars a year ( working at minimum wage ) back in the 70’s and that it’s our fault that they’re not buying homes, or cars right out of high school or college and that we weren’t saddled with Student debt like they are.
That little S*&T actually has a better job then me and guess what friends and neighbors he works for the State so you can bet your foamy Latte he makes more then I do NOW.
I gave college a hard pass after high school BECAUSE IT WAS TOO EXPENSIVE and guess what that decision cost me in another way, so I shed no tears for anyone who went on to Higher Ed.
So. When I see funny Millennials Memes I post them. I can’t help it. Well. I can. I just chose not too.
That this guy has his finger on the nuclear trigger is worse than any horror story I ever wrote- Stephen King on Donald Trump.
The true horror story- the one that Stephen King could not write, happened on the day Trump and his daughter were hawking canned food from the White House and people were being diagnosed with Covid-19 and dying from it too.
Stephen King was right- take a look at these faces as they did commercials for canned food- these smiling, twisted, evil faces.
No sane person could have ever envisioned these two monsters.
United States Cases
July 15, 2020
n United States of America, from Jan 20 to 11:04am CEST, 16 July 2020, there have been 3,405,494 confirmed casesof COVID-19 with 135,807 deaths.
Today it’s all about Freedoms and Flags and forcing that tear out of the corner of your eye when you stand on a corner at a 4th of July parade and little girls dressed up like Betsy Ross ride by on a float waving little flags on sticks.
But the reality is, it’s Boom Day Y’all.
It’s all about things that go zip and pop and kaboom and barbequed burgers and side dishes drenched in mayonnaise and bottles of beer chillng in a kiddie pool with a watermelon and shooting off the last of your fireworks at three in the morning.
As a side note, in the midst of your revelries try not blow off your fingers with your customized fireworks , or shoot a bottle rocket into your neighbor’s eye or hump your gun and up sending a bullet into your own house and leaving a hole in your tv.
Really though, have fun- why not? Just try not to maim anyone or set anything on fire. Boom Day falls on a Saturday so you can have loads of fun and not just a little if you play your cards right.
I’m going to end off here with some videos that I believe both express and add some much needed tone to the day, because for as silly as I think the 4th is, I do love to roast marshmallows with my feet up and sip on Sangria under the starlight.
