A Few Things To Bitch About

I am an old fart so according to popular belief I must be cranky and bitch about stuff all the time.

If you ask Sue I am sure that she would agree.

There are always something to bitch about no matter who you are…..today I have picked a couple of items to vent my anger upon…..

Cats! I realize that some of my readers are cat people but this is more about their owners than their feline friends.

When I walk my MoMo I am obliged to carry crap bags so that I can clean up her mess…..well yesterday I stepped in a bunch of cat crap not making me happy….plus my canine friend must be on a leash but not the cats in the neighborhood…..they roam the neighborhood starting fights and crapping wherever they want.  If MoMo gets out and wanders the neighborhood she gets picked up and I get fined.  Racism!  I tell you it’s racism!

Self-adsorbed dickwads that think that the sidewalks belong to them and stack their crap and trash and block the walkway or they park their cars so no one can walk on the sidewalks.

Television! Nowadays there are two types of TV….game shows and fake reality……and you wonder why people seem more ignorant than they were in the past…..these two types of “entertainment” lower your IQ several points every time you watch.

Finally…..those phone calls begging for money for state troopers, police and firemen.

First if the city/state are not caring for their employees then the problem is the government…..second….what idiot thought that in time of a pandemic and joblessness was a good time to beg cash over the phone?

I bitch about the price of fresh veggies every time I go to the store…if you hate it as well then I have a story for you…..economics come to play….scarcity drives price up but surplus does not drive the prices down.  Remember when they use to use the price of gas as a reason to up their prices and it also never came down when the price of gas declined.

When I go to a local park and give MoMo a new territory to explore I am always pissed to see the crap people leave behind….then I read a story about a great idea from Thailand….

Some visitors to Thailand’s beautiful Khao Yai National Park will be receiving a memento of their trip—all the trash they left behind. In a series of Facebook posts, Environment Minister Varawut Silpa-archa slammed campers who left garbage strewn around a campsite over the weekend and said officials should take it to the post office and send it back to them, the Bangkok Post reports. He added a photo of a package of trash that was being returned to the tourists. “You forgot these things at Khao Yai National Park,” says a note with the package.

Authorities say the trash is a hazard for the park’s wildlife, which includes numerous endangered species and some of the country’s only remaining herds of wild elephants. Visitors to the 770-square-mile park near Bangkok are required to register with their names and addresses, which has made it easy for authorities to track litterbugs down, the BBC reports. Park officials have also lodged a complaint with police, meaning the offenders could face a fine of up to $16,000 and a possible prison sentence for littering in a national park.

A DAMN fine idea!

I feel better already!

That is my meager offering for this Sunday….cooler weather has me and Sue enjoying the garden before the heat returns.

Be Well…..Be Safe……

Who’s Who For SCOTUS

By now the country knows and is in mourning for Judge Ginsberg…..that means that the conservs are rubbing their hands in anticipation of putting another conserv on the highest court in the land.

I have heard two names that gives me shudders….Ted Cruz (who says he does not want it) and Tom Cotton that warmonger from Arkansas…..but believe it or not there are other names in the hunt for the replacement….and these are…..

The full list of Trump’s additional picks is as follows:

Bridget Bade of Arizona, judge on the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
Daniel Cameron of Kentucky, that state’s attorney general
Paul Clement of Virginia, former U.S. solicitor general
Sen. Tom Cotton of Arkansas
Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas
Stuart Kyle Duncan of Louisiana, judge on the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
Steven Engel of the District of Columbia, assistant attorney general for the Office of Legal Counsel at the Department of Justice
Noel Francisco, former U.S. solicitor general
Sen. Josh Hawley of Missouri
James Ho of Texas, judge on the 5th Circuit
Gregory Katsas of Virginia, judge on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the District of Columbia Circuit
Barbara Lagoa, a judge from Florida on the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals

Christopher Landau of Maryland, U.S. ambassador to Mexico
Carlos Muñiz of Florida, justice on the Florida Supreme Court
Martha Pacold of Illinois, judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois
Peter Phipps of Pennsylvania, judge on the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
Sarah Pitlyk of Missouri, judge of the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Missouri
Allison Jones Rushing of North Carolina, judge on the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals
Kate Todd of Virginia, deputy assistant to the president and deputy counsel to the president
Lawrence VanDyke of Nevada, judge on the 9th Circuit

An extensive list indeed…..but is there a short list?  (Of course there is for Donald cannot concentrate long enough to read that long list)

The line to succeed the late Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg on the Supreme Court likely starts with these federal appeals court judges:

Amy Coney Barrett
