Well, the low-grade Whiffie and truant middle school elements continue to demonstrate their lack of any intellectual capacity at all, not that any was ever anticipated from this group. Long have they travailed and been heavy laden by the burdens of being beyond stupid, and it does not look like relief lies anywhere on their horizons. Such a crew of sorry ass toe-stubbers.

Meanwhile, the Sweet Spot carries on in its brave battle against most unhelpful weather conditions. It was sunny but just 35 degrees outside when I awoke, but the sun is going to go away soon while the mercury is not expected to see as much as 40. This will not much aid in the important melting process, and worse yet, another 2-4 inches of snow are forecast to fall overnight. Wisest I think to pull the car onto the carport/porte-cochere this evening. Might save some cleanup work in the long run.

Real President Joe may well be smirking meanwhile over the defeated Ding Dong's having had to cancel his planned J6 anniversary address. Turns out nobody want to hear it or him anymore. What a traitorous loser! Better of course to heed the wisdom of Jimmy Carter as set forth in his NYT op-ed yesterday. The nation is at real risk, he writes, and it's clear who is to blame for that.

In other news, rumors that OF Gregory Polanco (30) would soon sign with NPB have come true as the one-time but lately oft-injured star-to-be has now inked a deal with the Yomiuri Giants. Given good health, he could be back in the states before too long. He's definitely got the talent to play every day in the big leagues.

No big league talent at all of course is to be found anywhere in the bush league backwaters of Falls Church City. Home mostly to swing-and-a-miss stmblebums, the place -- already at the bottom of the area totem pole -- is rife only for even further declines. What a miserable outlook for them.

Gotta couple years left in Fairfax County school and plan to be somebody! Mom went to Harris Teeter this morning for groceries and she complained that they still did not have much. Don't think we'll have school tomorrow with a snow coming. We don't see Dad much these days after he relocated to Paint Bank, VA for IGA management job in New Castle.

Well, in addition to the kindergarten Calpers team, the weather gods have done us wrong again, dumping another unwanted dose of snow onto a landscape already overburdened with the stuff. It's all so infantile! And while it's bright and sunny out there now, temps of 25 degrees and NW winds at 17 mph are not helping things, either now or in the near-term future. We're not going to see as much as the freezing mark today, and we might not tomorrow wither. Disgraceful.

Real President Joe continues to push fot COVID controls as the Omicron variant continues to invade the foolishly unvaccinated population. But a Trump-packed USSC will listen Friday to concocted arguments against such rules, most challenges coming from members of deranged right-wing groups and similarly damaged 'religious' organizations. Public health and safety are of course among the central purposes of government, but you can't count on FOX News minds to recognize as much as that, no matter where they are.

In other news, Bozo Bobby has ordered that MLB abandon completely its traditional off-season spotlight to no productive end at all. Hurt in this of course are the game itself and the fans who foot the bills. The whole mess is just a black-eye for baseball from which it will not soon recover. Major malfunction in the game's 'leadership'.

An example of many major malfunctions over the years can of course be seen in modern day Falls Church City. Once seen as charming and bucolic, the place is now viewed as an abyss of all that can and regularly does go wrong inside the Beltway. The wise avert their eyes and move elsewhere

FYI, it was USSC to court watchers from well before the POTUS, FLOTUS, SCOTUS craze came along.

Well, the crumpled Whiffie cowards and deflated middle school morons continue to make no sort of actual sense or progress here at all. Just a bunch of burned out, deflated, dunce-like losers who never had a chance or shot here at all. Rest in peace, pipsqueaks.

Meanwhile, it's another sunny but seriously chilly one out here in the delightful Sweet Spot. It was a frosty 22 degrees when I got up, and it doesn't appear that we'll reach even the freezing mark today. I expect I'll bundle up and head over into the village later on anyway, as even the massive importations of groceries of a week ago are starting to run low in spots. The Cat Lady says the roads are back to a satisfactory level of clearness, and having been lately sheltered on the carport, the car is clear as well, so all systems should be good to go.

The wife's final in-home PT workout was yesterday, and for being just four weeks out, she's doing great. Out-patient therapy begins on Monday -- seven sessions over three weeks. Have to drive into Tysons for them, but maybe we can pick up some food along the way, Good news for The Principals as well, one of whom has been promoted to an even more senior position in the local hospitality industry. Comes with a nice boost in pay as well, quite a bit bigger even then the the juicy 5.9% kicker that we just got.

Real President Joe now gets to hoot and holler as the 'Cyber Ninjas' bogus investigation into alleged 2020 voter fraud in Arizona falls further and further into ruin. Blown up point by point by county government reporting and now slapped with $50K per day in sanctions for failing to produce records as ordered. The whole thing of course was never more than a tissue paper sham.

In other news, Cuban OF Cristian Vqueros (16) might be a name to watch for in five years or so, as the Nats are thought to have the inside track in signing him. Always just a roll of the dice at this age, but he does seemingly have some projectable tools, so better that we end up with him than that we get aced out by someone else.

No such concerns of course over anything in discordant Falls Church City. Nobody of any sense or talent makes camp there, nor should any newcomer sorts even consider the place. Guidance from a Magic 8-Ball would surely lead to a better selection than sorry FCC.
