Just Don't Start?

Just Don’t Start?

Here we go again. Donald, you’re channeling Nancy. Only now, instead of just say no, it’s just don’t start. Wow. That’s so easy. Donald, do you understand that a significant part of the opioid crisis involves prescriptions written by doctors? I’m certain that most doctors don’t want anyone to become addicted, but to ignore this aspect of the […]

Healing With Cannabis Is Worth The Risk

Healing With Cannabis Is Worth The Risk

It felt as if my body wasn’t my own. I had retained so much fluid that it felt as if I was sloshing about in boiling hot water. My thirteen-year nightmare with rheumatoid arthritis was surreal. It exploded into my life preventing any further training in Kenpo. Although my husband and I had closed our […]

Dear So-Called New Guy: So It's The Military's Fault?

Dear So-Called New Guy: So It’s The Military’s Fault? ~ Presidenting Is Hard Edition

Memo to the So-Called New Guy: Yes, presidenting is hard. And now you’ve decided to blame the military ² as well as President Obama for the failed raid in Yemen which killed a Navy SEAL along with numerous others.

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.

Holding up every stinking executive order he signs undoing our country is childish. And putting a white […]

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 […]

Veterans Need Safe Access To Medical Cannabis

After all the work Rep. Blumenauer and Senator Merkley did to give veterans safe access to medical cannabis in the latest funding bill for the Veteran’s Administration, that section was stripped from the bill and when it finally passed Congress, it was still not in there. Instead of VA doctors being allowed to sign off […]

A Veteran’s Worth

My husband, Jerry, is a disabled Vietnam veteran and has been so since his discharge in the mid-70’s. An outpatient clinic opened in our area and he goes there for his medical and vision care. But for dental, we drive 300 miles round trip to the VA Hospital in Portland. He can receive outpatient care […]
