Well, the first one went through great with my bank card, but the second one didn't. It wasn't declined but kept coming up "duplicate". She couldn't get it to bypass that so she called in the manager. The manager had the same problem, so, get this, he used his own card to buy my stuff and said, "Next time you're in just pay me back."

By the way, if you are in Hy-Vee and run into Bryan Franzoni, Manager, tell him he's a nice guy.

Combining the first two I resolve to resist stupidity or lies in politics or politicians.  Resist being fed lies.  I further resolve to resist blogging political crap.  The U.S. will right itself, or it won't.  The country will embrace Trumpism or it won't.  The people will confirm their values or they'll for…
