Good Morning.

It is the day after the anniversary of the signing of the Declaration of Independence. As I noted on my tours yesterday, only John Hancock actually signed it on July 4. The resolution was adopted on July 2 - most of the delegates signed it on August 2. Any of these dates could be our actual Independence day.....but as always, I digress.

With all that has gone on this past week, I still can't shake myself from the testimony of former Aide to WH COS, Cassidy Hutchinson.

Breaking Down a Meme
Author: BobR    Date: 06/29/2022 12:21:30

From what I've read, the hearing yesterday was eye-popping. I've heard a few clips, and read some "reviews", and it is all some amazing stuff. Unfortunately, I didn't watch it, so I won't be writing about it. Instead, I will be writing about a meme I saw that bothers me on several levels.

Essentially, this is what it said: "You are being told to lower your A/C usage to prevent overwhelming the grid while simultaneously being told to trade in your gas cars for electric vehicles".
