Well, here it is, the first day of my weekend, which starts on Tuesday this week. Surprisingly, most of my laundry is already done - I left work early yesterday. I'm only working 5 hour days this week and next week. What happens after that? Hell, it's anybody's guess.
The store was steady yesterday, slow in the morning, but then business picked up in the afternoon as bored people, forced to stay home from work, decided to take advantage of our 'life sustaining' status. They are all dumb shits who say things like "well, not everybody's going to get it," and "it's a hoax," and "this whole thing's been blown out of proportion by the media." Keep in mind I live in a very Conservative area. We have a lot of loyal, old Republicans living here... for the time being.
What are my plans for today? Well, as I type this, I'm also clipping my fingernails. Later on, I'm going to drive to Giant to pick up dog food, they should have started restocking by now. Sometime this morning I'm going to one of my reader's homes to pick up "The Body in the Well." Her initial response: really like it. This is the reader who thought "The Body in the Tower" was a bit dry because of the cycling bits. After that, I'm going to make a corned beef and take a ride on my bike, and the work on my Greek. Busy day for me.
I saw where the Idiot Jerk wants everybody to go back to work after 15 days. Because of the economy, you know? Remember way, way back, about 4 weeks ago, when Covid-19 first raised its ugly head, he had been saying things like "it's not going to be that bad," and "you can go to work with it?" Well, his thinking has never really changed, has it. His base has never really comprehended the seriousness of this illness. And you know those Evangelical advisers who lay their hands on him are whispering "don't worry, God will protect us." You know who I'm talking about, don't you? Human stains like Joel Osteen, who's discovering 'live streaming' can be far more lucrative than he initially imagined. And then there's that dumb shit David Green, who owns Hobby Lobby. I saw this on I Should be Laughing and was morbidly attracted by the sheer stupidity. Holy Shit! This is a first class example of Evil Greed. I can see the headlines now "Hobby Lobby Hot Spots Spread Covid-19." And then there's that dumb shit Lieutenant Governor from Texas, Dan Patrick who say he, and other grandparents, don't mind getting sick and possibly dying as long as it helps the economy. I wonder how many grandparents and seniors citizens he is really speaking for... my guess is not many. He is terribly concerned that Covid - 19 is going to change the 'American Way of Life.' This man is a soon to be 70 year old fool.
Change is on the way, and that terrifies Conservatives. It horrifies Evangelicals. They want the world to be rigidly orderly. For them blessings are big bank accounts, and they're frightened at how fast this little virus is draining their assets and leaving only liabilities. Tough Shit. Someone needs to pull out the passage in the Bible that says 'believers get rich.'
And in this country, the Idiot Jerk wants everybody to go back to work. He actually said they are working on masks for those infected so they can go back to work. That is simply insane. He doesn't understand the buck is going to stop at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.
Finally, to end on something a little bright, here's the latest picture of my peach blossoms.
Tomorrow, maybe a pictures of my nectarine blossoms.
Joel Osteen can FOAD. He has done nothing to help anyone unless they line his pockets.ReplyDelete
And you know he's going to use this crisis to suck as much money as possible from from those foolish people.Delete
Even though pretty much all of our division is under a work-from-home order, one of my coworkers—a guy only a couple months younger than me—insists on going into the office. He claims this is all a hoax. I have to say, I appreciate his stupidity; he can take care of the hands-on tasks for the few office workers remaining in the building and the field staff who don't have the luxury of working from home.ReplyDelete
Don't forget to send him constant reminders to disinfect everything he touches.Delete
I thought Id share with you all a new coronavirus test that just came out. It's a new Covid-19 testing method.ReplyDelete
Mail a sample of your stool to:
1600 Pennsylvania Ave
Washington DC 20500
I've already sent off several.
My dear, it's better to be safe rather than sorry. I'm sure the Idiot Jerk will know just what to do with them.Delete
I love this, MM!! Great idea!Delete
This country is selfish. Don't take away my assault rifle they say and people die. Don't take away my personal freedom to infect the elderly, and people die. They don't care until it hits close to home then they will want to sue someone, because that is what selfish people do.ReplyDelete
Not all Americans, some of us are nice. The selfish ones who are in charge? We need to take away their license to drive.Delete
man, the dumbshits that live up your way! may every GOPrick contract this virus and die; it's the only way to get rid of teh stoopid permanently.ReplyDelete
I just returned from a trip to weis market. 2 single rolls of TP per transaction, a few paper towels, fresh meat case stocked but 2 packages per transaction. bread aisle stocked but 4 bread items per transaction. I was able to get everything on my list. pet food aisle well stocked. frozen food was being replenished by 6 different people.
keep on keepin' on!
I thought you knew how stupid they were up here... This is Cracker Jack Crazy Christian territory.Delete
I will have to check out the Weis tomorrow. I'm only really concerned about dog food because of... well... big dogs.
Dave is right Anne Marie. And friends always ask, when are you moving back? You'd have to blast me out of Bucks County first.Delete
Talibangelicals do not care about people. They care about money. I was just reading that Liberty University is reopening. If they get sick, I hope they sue Jerry Falwell’s greedy ass to hell. He wants more money for another pool boy, I guess.ReplyDelete
Die hard repugs listen to the Golden Swine and believe his lies. Natural selection will take its course. They are also the ones that would die first if cheeto tries to lift the shelter in place rule. Win/win.
You do know that's going to turn into a Covid - 19 hotspot because they believe they're special.Delete
I read about Trump desperately wanting to get American back out to work in 2 weeks and could have cried. I'm no expert obviously but can you even begin to imagine how many people will die because of this???? I am lost for words!ReplyDelete
There is a segment of the American population who does not understand this at all. They really do think it is going to be over in 2 weeks, And you're right a lot of people will end up dying because of thatDelete
