I Love Stupid People- The Bicycle Version

I was outside working in the yard when my wife returned home this evening. We stood there talking while she watered some newly planted green things.

As we were talking, I heard a bicyclist coming up the road. A few minutes before my wife arrived, I had heard and seen the same cyclist go down the road. He caught my attention because he was making a lot of noise. That noise was due to his not having a tire on the back wheel of the bicycle. As he passed, I told my wife, "That idiot doesn't have a tire on the back wheel". She replied, "He can't do that, it will break." "Yes, dear".

A few minutes later, I was still outside and heard the bicycle coming past our house again. The noise was even louder. As he passed our driveway, the noise stopped almost instantly. Naturally the bicycle stopped too. I looked out and could see the mangled and collapsed rear wheel of the bicycle. The cyclist dismounted from the bicycle and looked at the crumpled wheel. He pulled out his cell phone and punched away for a minute. Then he looked at the rear wheel again, then just turned and started pushing the bicycle down the street.

The young man appeared to be in his teens. I realize that young people today lack the mechanical knowledge needs that we had when I was that age. Surely, he must know that one needs to put a tire on a bicycle wheel for it to work. Then again, he just demonstrated that he did not understand that.

What will happen to this young man? Career politician? Democratic Party Chairman?  I am guessing that their is a car chase in his future. He will keep driving even after he hits the "stop sticks" the police have put out. He will be trying to escape with four flat tires at about fifteen miles per hour. It will work about as well as his bicycle did today. Good luck, Gomer !!

Hillary, sick on Sunday???

I spent 42 years as a restaurant manager. I listened to thousands of employees tell me why they were sick and could not come to work or why they were sick and had to leave work. It's always in the details where you find the real truth.

So Hillary Clinton had to leave work early on Sunday because according to her campaign and the mainstream press, it was hot, she became overheated, and she was dehydrated. Let's look at the details.

The National Weather Service information destroyed the idea that it was hot. It was 81 or less at the time. CNN reported that Hillary overheated because she had on long sleeves and a jacket to complete her pantsuit. Look at the pictures of the men around her. The Secret Service guys were all wearing coats. Most of the "dignitaries" were wearing coats. Trump was nearby and he was wearing a coat and a tie to go with his long sleeved shirt. Has anyone checked with the Emergency Services people to see how many other people collapsed from the heat that day?? So did she really overheat? No signs that her clothes were drenched with perspiration. Let's move on.

The campaign, the media, a doctor, all tell us that she was dehydrated. Before we accept this as a fact, look at the actions of all involved. Is there a picture of anyone giving her liquids at any time  during the whole event? They are telling me that she is dehydrated and they knew it. Why didn't anyone do anything about it?? In her huge entourage, nobody could give her a bottle of water??  It's New York City!! How far could they be from a street vendor selling something to drink? Water would have been great but even a soft drink, beer, coffee, tea, would have been better than nothing. All those people and no one could even come up with a Slurpee??

I am calling B.S. on the whole story. She has some serious issues that need to be addressed. Remember, the Democrats would not let the nation see FDR in a wheelchair!!
