Fierce Friday
Author: wickedpam    Date: 11/19/2021 14:11:08

Today I'd like to bring you a recommendation for a new podcast to listen too and a follow on every social media platform you're on. If you haven't already heard of her that is.

Leigh McGowan (aka Politics Girl)




She's been "ranting from her kitchen", as she puts it, for about a year and just recently was spotlighted on Brian Williams 11th Hour. I've only been listening for a few months and just wow!

A seeming mix of Katherine Hepburn and Julia Sugarbaker, she is smart, funny, and delivers a passionate message of Democrats, both moderate and progressive. And lord knows we need some people out there whose voice can cut through the din of GQP droning and lies. Take a listen when you have some time.



Hope you enjoy her as much as I have these past few months.

Have a great weekend and please keep safe.

Mala

Good morning, bloggers!!!

So, my school asked if I wanted to press charges against the student who threw a tennis ball at my this week. I said yes, and talked to two officers. The student has in-school suspension today and will be removed from my class. I guess I will find out if anything else happens.

I am glad to be off for a week after today.

I am going to see if the principal will let me apply elsewhere. However, apparently all the middle schools are a mess.

I'm okay I guess? I was a mess last night thinking about what happened so Jess gave me a valium (which honestly didn't do much but put me to bed earlier). Woke up at 3:30, tried to go back to sleep but it wasnt happening. I was nervous for the whole ride to work.. honestly I wasn't feeling like being here, but once I got into the flow I felt better.

Thinking back on it, those first few moments I had no hesitation at all. I was on the phone to 911 immediately, was the only passenger asking people for napkins or towels or anything to help control the injured fella's bleeding (this was before the driver pulled out the first aid kit).. I didn't really start to get anxious or anything until after the paramedics took the guy out.

Oh damn. I am so sorry that you had to go thru this, but I am also glad you were there for other people.

Good morning. Just hope the bill can get past Manchin and Sinema pissing on it. They seem to object to any little thing that might hurt their donors.

Dave Firshberg, the composer of "I'm Just a Bill" just passed away at the age of 88.

how sad


Comment by TriSec on 11/19/2021 16:48:29
Greetings, comrades!

A productive morn in the Trisec compound so far. But sad - put my bike into storage for the winter. Good rookie season. I didn't die. I didn't dump it. Ever onward.

My mission this afternoon is "The Great Turkey Hunt". Off to see if the National Turkey Blight is real, or fake news. I was at the market yesterday and saw plenty available. Didn't buy one quite yet.

JFC.. this smug little toad got acquitted on everything.

If that's the case, then I'm sure someone will gladly take up the offer and the bounty that is gonna be on this piglet's head.

For the record, I had to temper my response there. I admit I'm simply not in the right frame of mind to deal with this today.

Comment by TriSec on 11/19/2021 19:56:33
Well, I just got my schedule for the week ending December 4.

You might have heard about our new Mayor, Michelle Wu.

I'M DRIVING HER AROUND BOSTON ON FRIDAY DECEMBER 3!

I'm going to meet the mayor!
I'm going to meet the mayor!

With everything going on, I am scared that this country could still go full Fascist under the GQP.
