First, let me apologize for the completely uncreative title. I know I’m usually better than that where titles are concerned but in the last two weeks, everything and everyone has been rather disappointing so I figured I’d throw myself onto that heap.
With that said, Biden is the “presumptive” Democratic nominee (unless one of the Avengers comes out of nowhere the night of the convention, shoots him with a laser that makes him forget he was running, and Bernie takes center stage). I was never a hardcore Bernie-ite. I didn’t engage in any e-fights with anyone about the merits of Bernie’s candidacy or the validity of his plans once in office. However, if COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that Bernie was prolly right about that Medicare For All thing.
I see Biden as a relic. I think Biden’s time was after Obama left office and he missed his shot. Biden reminds me of every Boomer who has talked down to Millennials about the student loan crisis, bleak employment prospects, and stagnant wages. The biggest issue is that he can’t beat Trump.
Honestly, I feel like we can go ahead and vote tomorrow. I doubt the outcome will be any different in November.
Geico, who I’ve been with for years, decided that once you renew, they’ll give you 15% off. That’s after their COMPETITORS announced that they were giving money back to their policyholders since people aren’t really driving. So basically, if you’re in the middle of your 6 month term or have already paid in full, you may have to wait several months for this “gift.”
I’m giving them until Wednesday to reverse course before I switch insurance companies. I have not the time to wait on people to act like they have some home-training.
Lastly, I didn’t get a stimulus check. I’m not surprised. I still haven’t filed my 2019 taxes and I actually had to pay those mofos in 2018. But, I hear I’m not alone. I’m not really sure how an entity that doesn’t answer its phones on a normal day didn’t have time to streamline and make the process of issuing payments more efficient during the time of COVID-19 when most people are twirling their thumbs anyway, but, as my theatre teacher used to say, such is life.
Add them to the other two entities who owe me money but have not paid.
Oh yeah! Here’s the obligatory gif:
