Where We Find Our Peace ~ Tarot for 9 May 2017

Where We Find Our Peace ~ Tarot for 9 May 2017

Wow. Lots happening today culminating with the new guy firing the Director of the FBI, James Comey. Although firing someone who is investigating him seems to be a trend with this impulse-challenged overgrown child pretending to be our president, the timing seems odd as well as its roll out. It doesn’t appear the new guy […]

Life As A Preexisting Condition

When Life Becomes A Preexisting Condition

In the new guy’s version of life in this country, preexisting conditions should be allowed only for those who can pay for them. And one foolish congressman even went so far as to suggest that the sickest among us should be paying more than people who have remained healthy as if chronic illness or cancer, for example, […]

Party Solidarity?

Party Solidarity?

Full confession: I was a registered no party affiliation voter until the 2008 election and never thought I would ever be concerned with party solidarity of any kind. At that point, I wanted to vote in the Oregon primary and I registered as a Democrat so that I would automatically get a ballot in the mail. […]

What Does It Take To Hate?

What Does It Take To Hate?

What does it take for someone to hate another? I mean, really hate another. I’ve said on more than one occasion that I hated one thing or another but it was meant as hyperbole, not that I actually hated anything or anyone. Because to hate someone or a group of someones I believe it takes the […]

So In Today's News ~ Happy F*cking Valentine's Day Edition

So In Today’s News ~ Happy F*cking Valentine’s Day Edition

So in today’s news, I see that we now have classified briefings at golf course banquet rooms with the flashlights from cellphones ¹ lighting the briefing materials. Never mind the potential hacking problem this brings up. And rumor has it that the so-called new guy is spending a third straight weekend at said golf course at […]

The Perilous Silencing of Women

The Perilous Silencing of Women

The silencing of women has begun in earnest on the floor of the Senate. Be seen and not heard. That’s what I was told by my parents while growing up. I was precocious in their view and my truthful comments weren’t welcome. An empath, my awareness made them uncomfortable. Sorta like the republicans in the Senate […]

Respect Seniors: Increase Funding For Meals On Wheels

The New Guy Isn’t Smart At All

Although it’s apparently difficult for the new guy to understand this, the American people actually care about human rights. Not mentioning Jews in his Holocaust Remembrance comments because other people died too is shameful and insensitive at minimum. Holding up every stinking executive order he signs undoing our country is childish. And putting a white […]

Republicans Continue to Fail Our Veterans

Republicans Continue to Fail Our Veterans

Republicans continue to fail our veterans. Now the new guy is giving the Republicans one of their bigger prizes: he’s signed off on a federal hiring freeze. What the assholes have done by this less than noble effort is to prevent the Veteran’s Administration from hiring any more staff to take care of the thousands […]

I Can't Look At Him

I Can’t Even Look At Him

I can’t even look at him, this man-child. I can’t listen to his voice, or any of his minions. I can’t watch the news and I barely read anything past an article’s headline. I’ve added subscriptions to Hulu and Gaia to my Netflix and Amazon video options because I can barely watch television anymore. Comedy […]

The Politics Of Baby-Proofing The World Against A Leader Lacking Basic Impulse Control

And So It Begins

The Electoral College did what many of us wished they hadn’t. They formally elected the lowest common denominator as our president. I’m not going to list all of the harm he’s caused others because we’ve all heard it before. Unfortunately, enough people listened to his craven bullshit and because of the idiotic way we elect […]
