Schmuck of The Week

Schmuck

So many schmucks, too little time….

Senators Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema have voted to reject the change of filibuster rules to allow the passage of two voting rights bills. The Freedom to Vote Act and the John Lewis Voting Rights Act would protect our most basic rights. Why would anyone not want to protect the rights of every American in this country?

The filibuster rules have been amended many times in the past. You’d think that a simple change in rules would be nothing to get their panties in a bunch but seems that’s what’s happened. Senators Manchin and Sinema say they support the bills but refuse to bend a little on the filibsuter rules. What’s more important? Filibuster rules (that have been amended 160 times in the last 52 years) or the rights of all Americans to vote?

These two Senators earn the Schmuck of The Week award! They deserve it.

All I can say here is: What nerve! We suffered through 4 years of Donald Trump’s ignorance and destruction and Joe Biden is the clown? Joe Biden is a complete joke? Donald Trump can’t even speak in complete sentences! Give me a freakin’ break!

Senator Rick Scott also earns the Schmuck of The Week award!

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week – Cat Edition

Good Morning. I hope all is well with you, my friends and readers! It’s been a cold week for me. It dropped to 5 degrees last night and was barely 10 degrees at 7am. This old house is cold, regardless of how many heaters we have running. I’m chilled to the bone, which is why I’ll be making a pot of Un-Stuffed Bell Pepper Soup for lunch. Oh, and in case you’re wondering about my pain meds (last post), I have received them and I’m doing much better!

I’ve had quite a few cat funnies cross my screens this past week and I realized that I’ve never done a cat-themed funnies post. I don’t know why. I’m truly a cat person and I’ve had many over the years. They provide such wonderfully hilarious entertainment at times, even when they’re being a pain in the ass. This post is cat-themed to entice your funny bone!

I hope you enjoy this collection! Please share your favorites in the comments!

What’s Eating Aunt Debbie?

Well, let me tell you. PAIN.

Last week, I called in my prescription medications. I was waiting for my NP to approve one script that had no more refills and then I was going to call Walmart and have them ship my meds as I normally do.

Stupid me didn’t realize I was nearly out of my pain medication! That was late Friday. I started to panic because we were expecting snow on Saturday. I couldn’t go out and pick up my meds in person because I didn’t know how much snow we would actually get. I called Walmart yesterday to have them ship; they will go out today.

I had 2 pain pills left, one to be taken every 12 hours. So, I’ve had to ration. I took one Saturday night and my pain level wasn’t too bad. I saved my last one for tonight. I only took Tylenol Arthritis last night and my pain level is UP. With any luck, FedEx will come tomorrow! Usually, they’re pretty quick.

Then, I began to panic again because my daughter mentioned MLK Day and wondered if FedEx would even run today! I googled it and apparently, FedEx and UPS both will run, while the USPS observes the holiday.

The sun is out, trying to melt the snow and the road looks pretty good, but I’d probably get stuck in the yard if I tried to get the car out. (We don’t have a traditional driveway.) It’s 44 degrees at the moment but it seems much colder when there’s snow on the ground.

Wish me luck. I can’t function well with no pain meds to dull the pain.

P.S. Don’t think that I am an addict because I am not. There’s a difference between addiction and dependency. I am dependent on pain meds to be able to function. There is no euphoria involved. I have to make that clarification because “a friend” had accused me of being a drug addict some time ago. That person is no longer in my circle.

Friday’s Funnies – My Faves This Week

Ugh! Is it Friday, again? This week has been the “physical shits” as my Granny used to say. Between high pain levels and other annoyances, I just want someone to shove me off a cliff. I hope your week has been better than that!

The weekend may or may not bring us a buttload of snow – I hope NOT because I’m nearly out of dry cat food and won’t get delivery until Monday, if the roads are cooperative, that is.

This week’s collection of funnies coming at you! I hope you enjoy them because we all need a little laugh. Be sure and let me know in the comments what your favorites are!

Schmuck of The Week

Schmuck

Oh, boy. What a conundrum. How do you choose just ONE moron when there’s an entire box of them? And just since last week’s Schmuck of The Week award! Holy crap.

Well, I’m pretty sure every person on the list this week is extremely deserving so how the hell do I choose? Maybe all 5 should get the award. You be the judge.

***

Trump White House Aide, Peter Navarro, admitted the plot to steal the 2020 election. He gave names of those who were part of the plan, he explained the method, play by play, AND he did it all on national television. The schmuck doesn’t even know how dumb he is! 

***

Florida Governor Ron DeSantis recently asked, “Now think about it. Before Covid did anyone go out and seek testing to determine if they were sick? It’s usually you feel like you’re sick and you get tested to determine what you maybe have come down with.” Seriously? “Usually” was before Covid. NOW is Covid. Covid can be deadly, especially for those who are immunocompromised or unvaccinated. This guy is more than just a schmuck. He’s an ignorant schmuck. 

***

Texas Senator Ted Cruz, called the Jan. 6 attack “a violent terrorist attack on the Capitol” but when Tucker Carlson (Fox tv news host) read him the riot act, Cruz backtracked his comments by saying he was referring only to the rioters who attacked police during the breach of the Capitol. Grow a pair, you schmuck! Those rioters were out for blood! They wanted to “hang Mike Pence” and were looking specifically for “that bitch” Pelosi. If they had had the chance, they would have attacked and killed more than just police officers.  

***

House Minority Leader Kevin McCarthy, recently slammed the President for failing to end the pandemic. I couldn’t believe my ears! The GOP has spent months and months fighting and blocking mask ordinances and vaccine mandates; the very things that could possibly end the pandemic. Tell me again who’s responsible for failing to end it? OH, and why the hell haven’t you blamed your idiot orange leader? He could have ended the pandemic before Biden took over. A giant schmuck, is what you are!

***

The last schmuck on the list this week is Kentucky Senator Rand Paul. First, what the fuck does an ophthalmologist know about infectious diseases? He has a lot of nerve verbally attacking Dr. Anthony Fauci, who has been protecting this country from infectious diseases for almost 40 years. Or have these people forgotten about the HIV or Ebola crises? Dr. Fauci was right about funds being collected on Senator Rand’s website, that appear to be for the firing of Dr. Fauci. I call bullshit. Those funds are to feed Rand’s bank account and his big dumb-fucking ego. These people who verbally attack Fauci are absolutely responsible for the crazies out there who have threatened the lives of Fauci and his family. There is no excuse!

***

So, who would you choose for the Schmuck of The Week award? There seems to be a never-ending supply of them!
