Rollin' Like Sisyphus

Not So Good Music Friday

Posted in Good Music Friday by Huckleberry on August 21, 2015

Also, not so good of a Friday if your stock-in-trade is in the trading of stocks.
Monday should be fun – could be another 400+ point freefall, could be a 1000+ rally or anything in between.
This is what happens when software does the heavy lifting for you.
But 530 points, on top of all the other great news the past couple of weeks, well, get your party hats on.
It’s nearly time to go.
The week that was turns out to be nearly indistinguishable from the week prior; the walls are closing in on Clinton, and the only thing I’m curious to see is if she slithers out of it or if she actually faces some semblance of consequences from her manifold malfeasances. If yes, she’s not a protected brand and maybe everything is as random as the physicists prattle on about. If she still manages to run her campaign, than the fix is more than “in”; it’s a fait accompli of the highest order, which will make the precipitous fall that much more enjoyable to watch.
Despite the best laid plans of the GOP Braintrust, immigration will be a front-and-center topic of discussion for the 2016 election, and the whole thing could easily be set up as a referendum on this insane push for widespread amnesty/open-door-to-the-dregs-of-the-world policy. I imagine if I were bought and paid-for by megalomaniacs interested in replacing the indigenous population with an imported one more known for accepting low-class status, the current fiasco would chap my ass some.
Thank God I’m not.
Beyond that, crime is up, weird crime is even more up, the Great Sweater of Western Civilization is nearly threadbare, but these should be the most impressive ruins the world has ever known.
Check back in a thousand years.
It should be a site to see.
On the homefront, it should be a more mellow weekend. The heatwave has broken, it’s supposed to be a fine 82 degrees with low humidity and plenty of sunshine. I’ve got the fantasy football drafts for the VP alum leagues tomorrow morning, and that’s always a good time. A good group of guys that only get together (however virtually) and shoot the shit, pick some players and forget all of the other garbage of the wider world. The hammock will also get a workout this weekend, I imagine, maybe as soon as this evening. The Wife’s got some beers on ice already, just waiting for my arrival home.
That’s not nothing, friends.
Anyway, that’s the lay of the land. Have a good one, and get ‘em the Hell in.

    In a Kansas City Pizza Hut a few years back, there was a Queen song in the jukebox called “Boehmian Rap City” that sounded a lot like this one. Except awesome.

    But to be honest, I really expected a tribute to Shaun King. Son, I am disappoint.
