I'm overwhelmed
Author: Raine    Date: 07/23/2020 13:12:13

Between the feds beating protestors and gassing moms in Portland, the occupant bragging about a cognitive test, and every other crappy thing that is going on, I am just overwhelmed.

This is sheer insanity that is being inflicted on the citizenry. I don't think there is anything else I could write this morning -- I am just angry.

Anyone got any good news? I could use some.

Raine

Morning

That's the point. To overwhelm and demoralize. Along with the cruelty.

Yeah, this morning was one of those I just can't mornings.

Meanwhile, Good Morning America dedicated many minutes of coverage to freakin' Kanye West this morning. I very nearly did the brick at the TV thing.

Seriously, WHO THE FUCK CARES???

As an entire society, these United States are dumber than a fucking turnip.

Good morning. Another day and still poor as a church mouse.

I wonder where that phrase came from?

Good morning, bloggers!!!

I was out yesterday for many things, including the social distancing funeral for a friend's Mom. I also spent some time with friends.

In some good news, which Raine said is needed, I am applying to some new jobs at good school districts that have opened up. Apparently, some teachers are retiring.

In more good news, I got to pamper my friend Laura's 19-year-old beagle Harley with some treats. (He has such resilience that I have to wonder if he has some dire worlf DNA.)

As we need hope, I will say I don't think that most Americans are falling for the strategy of the current regime in Washington, DC. It is time for lawsuits and peaceful protests. It is time for supporting good causes. It is time to show that the flag that Benjamin Franklin saw in Philadelphia at the Constitutional Convention was not a setting sun. In the end, it is up for us. In the words of Hillel the Sage, "If I am not for myself, who will be. If I am only for myself, what am I? And if not now, when?"

She has spirit and I think that Trump's acolytes have absorbed his misogyny and racism. I would not have blamed AOC for slapping Yoho in the face.

Good afternoon all!

First night back at home was.. well, mostly normal. I'm able to function pretty well solo again.

Now this damn swelling just needs to go away. It shifted from the left side of my face to the right, and along with it the earache. however the drain hole is on the right side, so more fluid is draining now. I guess that's a plus! Visiting nurse should be here soon.

My FB status:

Why the F8ck did 2 fighter jets fly over our house a minute ago?

That was really scary and VERY loud. Anyone else hear or seem them? They were heading south pretty much along the Rt. 1 Corridor.

I live a few miles away from Joint Base Andrews. I regularly see aircraft going to and from the base. This was highly unusual.

Super glad you are home, Scoop.

Not a nurse, but if the earache has to do with liquids, a warm dry cloth might help.

So now the GOP convention will be further scaled down
Trump's ego must be taking a lot of bruises.
