My brother's exploding power bill.

I pay my brother's bill online. It is around $25 a month. I began to do it when he got pinned in by an ice storm and had forgotten to send it in. I kept on and he reimburses me. NBD.

The I saw him at the beginning of January and he warned me the bill would be much higher. He had gotten tired of bundling up for the 'cold' and was using space heaters. The bill came in at $97.

I asked him then if he was living in a refrigerator? I also told him he was gonna burn hisself up using those heaters. He lives in a very, very old 4-room woodframe house.

The other thing I told him was to expect a visit from the authorities. That type of power rise would be flagged somewhere. He told me that this was a one off and the bill should go back down.

So I get the next bill and it's $160. I called him and asked him what the hell he was really doing. I get the 'I am cold' scenario. He will be bringing me moneys this week to pay for that.

I am highly skeptical of his story. I am tempted to drive down there, but then I might have to testify.
Anybody else have questions besides me about this?

My FB post aimed at my 'Xtian' Trump followers:

Jesus returned.
He was picked up in Amarillo working in a homeless shelter.
ICE has him jailed in a detention center somewhere.
I'd ask you to pray for him but I don't think he wants to hear from you now.
Question: Was your '30 pieces of silver' made by direct deposit from Trump, your God?

What? You think he'd be in the White House planning with Bannon? You are reading 'Mein Kampf' and not the Bible if you do.

My brother came by.

I got his W-2s to do his taxes.
I don't think he voted for Trump because he didn't vote. He seems to think that the Trump moves are amusing. He is a moron. However, he does understand more than most. He told me that the problem was that Trump is crazy.

I told him that I had disowned or been disowned by almost all relatives and friends because of their Trump support. I said that the only reason I opened my door to him was because he had helped me a lot before. Then I said "Don't push it."

I also tod him he knew this was different. He knew because I had never acted this way before no matter the election. That should be a big clue.

He zigs and zags. He believes some of the stupid GOP crap. He has shrieked about guns before but he that seems to be the only thing he is still blathering about.

He has really helped me a lot and isn't a religious hypocrite. He has a temporary pass for now.

About 10 years ago he worked for my cousin on his farm. A lot of the basic work was done by Hispanic immigrants, illegal or not. He asked to buy him a small Spanish/English dictionary and one of the learn it yourself courses. He wanted to learn enough to talk to them. He said they needed help and he wanted to at least be able to understand them. That's why I haven't thrown him in Lynches River. Ya never know, ya know.

If you think the protests don't matter or you are discouraged, please read this:

People are watching. And the only hope this nation has is to keep moving loudly and proudly for what we believe!

Keep posting about President Bannon everywhere.

Trump's ego can't take it and he will dump him.

Here comes Trump:

We are SOL if he cannot be controlled or listen to reason. He is not rational.
