Those darn robots have made America the disaster it is today! We need to ban robots and Artifical Intelligence (AI)! To bring back the hundreds of thousands of manufacturing jobs they have taken from hard working Americans, we need to ban all new robots!
I know our robot overlords are not going to like this post. In fact, in the Robot Patriot Treason Trials of the 2030’s (yes, the future) I know this blog post (and many I’ll write about this subject) will be used against me to show how I was a bigot towards AI and Robots. My act of defiance here will no doubt land me in the slave coal mines of Virginia (or the Moon).
However, we must look to the past to bring back those jobs. Get rid of those evil robots that automated people out of work! Recycle them into steel and use that steel to build cars made by all human hands. Rise up dear readers, and say “no more robots!”
But if you are a robot and have already taken over the world, I’m sorry about this post, it was a joke, and please don’t ship me off to the moon for a space mining camp.

I’m not much of a commuter so when I do have to drive somewhere, I pride myself on not being an idiot. I know where I am going and what freeways and exits I need to take. I know where the problems will be and when I should merge or exit.
Today, some idiot decided she needed to merge in front of me without bothering to look. She must have known she had three choices: speed up on the on ramp and cut me off, crash into me, or stay at her present speed and gently merge in behind me. As we know from my present tone that she cut me off.
Now, I didn’t blare my horn, tailgate her, or even get that upset. I just shook my head in amazement. Seriously, it was that important to get ahead of me in your Blue Tahoe? Like it made the traffic go that much faster? And don’t bother to look at me as you merge, the rest of us will gladly watch out for your vehicle this morning.
I did catch up to her as I neared my final destination and she was texting on her phone. I honestly could have cut back in front of her, slammed on my brakes, caused an accident, and gotten a new work truck out of it.
But I didn’t.
And I live to write another day without back pain!
Thanks for allowing me to vent and release.

Let’s face it…my blog is boring and the only other losers paying any attention to it are the guys trying to get me to visit their blog site. I mean, really who is going to follow the exploits of me?
Uh, today, I got up brushed my teeth, ate some breakfast, had some coffee, etc. Oh yeah. Exciting. Be still my beating heart, this blog is just too amazing!
Anyway, for the two people following my blog (thanks Grandma and the prison inmate in Alabama), I finished the patio in the front of the house AND managed to take 1.09 tons of trash to the dump today. My little Ford Ranger Pick up was a low rider and we looked like the Clampetts mowing from one end of the valley to the other.
The front yard is coming together and at the end of June, I’ll be going after the deck repairs and enhancements.
