Bluntness

I've also been told I have little tact, so if this offends you simply ride on.

Opening the Box

 Well, it's Monday morning.  I work this afternoon.  Six full hours, though I get a break.  I made a chorizo and pepper dish yesterday, that will be my lunch.  

My department has not been busy.   We've had several customers, I ended the week with 3 measures, but this time of year flooring sales are always slow.  I don't mind.  Covid is moving through the store.  Three of our cashiers are out, as is one of our flooring specialists.  Interesting.  Because I'm part-time I wasn't around him that much.  He had been vaccinated back in early March.  Antibodies don't hang around forever, for those who don't know; this is the second go round for one of the cashiers.

Terrible storms out in the mid-west.  I feel bad for those people.  Many lost loved ones and even more lost everything they owned.  You can still be living and have your life wiped completely away.  What really irked me was Rand Paul, who has voted against hurricane relief multiple times, was so quick on the phone to Biden asking for help.  He is one selfish sack of shit.

On brighter side, I still have roses blooming... in December.  Took a pick of this cutie, a yellow climber, outside my front door.


We owe Gavin Newsome a big tip of the hat.  With his decision to use the same legislative tactics Texas legislators used to go after abortion providers for gun control in California, he has stuck his fingers into the eyes of those political hacks sitting on the Supreme Court. Yep, that's right, Amy Coney Boney, and Sammy Alito, and Clarence ( I want to be white) Thomas, as well as Beer Belly Kavanaugh, set a precedent when they allowed the Texas law to stand.  In California the target might well be gun manufacturers, in Ohio?  Perhaps Big Pharma... or maybe pharmacists, that would be sweet, wouldn't it?  Go after the guy who sold the pills your kid used to overdose? Yep, those selfishly conservative dolts on the Court have shown us the way.  And, since most of them are overly zealous in their Christian beliefs, believing they are doing God's will, I'm sure they will understand this is exactly what God wants.  Hey, some smart legislators may even decide to go after Evangelical Preachers.

  2. Oh, yes. The Repugs who voted against disaster relief will be the first to extend their hands asking for money. Typicial. And Newson's move is kinda brilliant. Sotomayor said as much in her dissent, but the xtianists were busy cawing their triumph. It'll come to the states to decide if the people living in them are good people or not.

    XOXO

    1. What stands out is the fact that those stupid conservatives never saw the potentials they were giving Centrists and Liberals.

  3. Whatever happened to the Supreme court being unbias. I have no patience for people who think their beliefs are more important than my beliefs.

    1. I thought you knew, the Republican put in a bunch of hacks to get the Evangelicals to vote for them.

  4. We were going to go out to dinner Saturday night...buy got a call from the place cancelling our reservation because of several wait staff getting covid and the place couldn't open. I don't miss shopping. I'm hearing horror stories of the waits and lack of finding help to assist.

    1. It's all over the place up here, so make sure you're vaccinated.

  5. I was horrified by what I saw in Kentucky. Oh my, I couldn't imagine maybe losing a loved-one and then losing everything you own too! One thing I was curious about though, don't those houses have basements like we do here? I know that's not always the case but I hope they at least have tornado shelters. Those poor people!

    1. Some have basements, but a lot are built on concrete pads, it costs less to build.
