There are cookies in the kitchen

Actually, that’s a lie, there’s one cookie in the kitchen and there may soon be none. I should be grading homework but I’m feeling singularly without motivation these days. I’ve been trying not to watch the “news” but one of my friends updates me with the latest “I can’t believe this shit!” daily. Maybe that’s why I’m not motivated to do more than eat cookies.

I guess I didn’t realize that hatred for one man would cause people to ignore all else and choose (well, I actually still believe the election was stolen, but I digress) someone to lead the country based entirely on the desire to remove him from office by any means necessary.

We’re hearing a lot about unity from someone who seems to think that impeaching the former president is a good idea, even though it has little support from most of Congress, it seems and looks like merely an exercise in “neener neener neener, we won and we can do whatever we want!”

People, we’re told, are starving, in this, the greatest country in the world (prove me wrong) but we’ve got the idiots in charge spending resources on this trial. And on a lot of other crap that just makes me go, “really?”

And I’m waiting for the supporters of that man to wake up, to start complaining, when things start going to hell in a handbasket. Will I feel sorry for them? Nope. Will I gloat? Only in private. Will I laugh my ass off? Again, only in private.

So I’m not motivated to do much of anything and that last cookie is calling my name.

    Only a cookie? I ate a whole chocolate cake this week. Same reason.

  2. Yes, let’s line up for higher prices at the market, gas pump, pharmacy, for utilities, and everything else we need to buy because some people didn’t like the personality of someone else. Let’s also raise minimum wage that will force more business to close and while we’re at it, let’s increase unemployment. Let’s get into bed with one of the worst countries in the world who doesn’t value human life and inflicted that bat 💩 virus on all of humanity.
    I don’t know if I can gloat in silence but I will try.
    God help us all.

  3. Since I am on my usual winter keto diet and dry January, I would thank you if you would avoid discussing cookies. I would kill for a carbohydrate and the idea of sugar, well, it’s more than I can stand. There is only so much protein and fat that a body can handle in the interest of restoring my glorious albeit somewhat round, physique. By the way, for efficiency sake, I recommend you abbreviate “I can’t believe this shit” to “ICBTS” and save some time when posting.

    When I think of the years spent, and salaries wasted on looking for reasons to hate, impeach, slander whatever, the former president, I get upset. Such a waste of resources. But it is not a success if it distracts people from the dark direction this world is heading in. I learned today from someone who lives in the UK that they will be fined for picnicking. Does anyone see a problem with that? It scares the tar out of me.

    What? Doesn’t it make perfect sense to let murders and rapists out of jail but lock up families for dining and getting fresh air? Around here a father – daughter pair were fined for playing outdoor tennis.

    I have been hearing about similar insanity around the globe. I don’t know if it is good or bad that we are not alone in this. 🤷‍♀️

  7. Hmmm, I believe someone is looking at the possibility of impeaching Biden. Wonder what that will cost? And speaking of cost, I wonder how many billions of dollars will be spent in repairing the Capitol Building because of what happened there on January 6th? And hmmm, meanwhile children and adults in our own country are starving and our veterans are homeless – but of course, that just started being the truth in the last few weeks, right?

    I believe in the necessity of the impeachment trial, because I believe people should be accountable to the consequences of actions. Trump was all for the “maximum that laws allow” in holding people accountable for riots that caused destruction to other buildings, so why should that not apply now?

    • I didn’t say it was right to try to impeach Biden, although I think there’s far greater a case for it than this sham. I also didn’t say that starving children is something new – my point is that money is being spent on something that will further divide the country and it’s supported by people who are preaching “unity.” “Unity” is sounding more and more like “we won so sit down and shut up and we’re gonna do what we want.” Did anyone in government who supported rioting and burning cities all summer get impeached? Nope, they did not, they were lauded.

      • I totally respect your right to your opinions, and I also respect your right to give voice to your opinions. I can do both without agreeing with those opinions. My sense, based on your comments, is that you feel a lot of ire over the fact that your choice for President was not re-elected to a second term. I understand that ire, being familiar with it from four years previously when your choice WAS elected in the role. Personally, it is my wish that the anger will dissipate for you, since we both know that carrying kind of negative emotion around inside us is always far more detrimental to us than to the person(s) for whom we carry it. Nonetheless, as Americans of these UNITED States, we can agree to disagree on our political stances and still both desire to see this nation return to being strong and unified. It’s only been 20 years since 9/11 – and we banded together as Americans for our country. I hope to see us become those people again in my lifetime – without another 9/11 event or a second Civil War. Be blessed and find peace!


      • this may be true for you, but I’m not seeing a whole lot of other people who feel the same way. I’m not angry that my choice wasn’t elected, I’m angry that there was a ton of evidence that this election was flawed and it was all discounted as “baseless.” I’m angry that the media chose a president, that they continue to spin the “news” so it’s okay if one side does something, but goddess forbid the other do the same. And it’s not about the person, it’s about the policies. I don’t agree with the policies of the current occupants of the White House. As I’ve learned to echo – he’s not my President.

    Ain’t that the truth. No one spoke of “unity” or “compromise” during the last four years.

    This is why Girl Scout cookies were invented! I am still hopeful that things will get better. Hang in there- and pass the thin mints.
