Trapped between a rock & a hard place, & all the while I can see the path below plain as day…

My excitement over getting a new self-sustaining chapter in my life has started developing a bitter taste the past few weeks, and it's only getting worse. Don't get me wrong, I like the solar company I'm working with and they are doing what they can to help me out. It's the financing company we both … Continue reading Trapped between a rock & a hard place, & all the while I can see the path below plain as day…

Optimism, the hard crash, & stress cleaning all in one day…

Yeah, I feel ya, Spongebob. I wasn't expecting much from today, except trying to get some information for my house so when it's time for the improvements, all is in order. I'd hoped to have more time for Masterclasses, gardening, and writing... but the records issue sucked up most of the day. Especially after the … Continue reading Optimism, the hard crash, & stress cleaning all in one day…

Borrowed Q #157: Jan 6, 2021 was… a “revolution” of what, exactly?

This is just a small question in a fabulous post by the great John Pavlovitz written two days ago. I had to think of what was bugging me (other than everything) about the "Tit Offensive" as some have called it ("Beer Gut Putsch" works, too). But that's what I found disconcerting, because from my understanding, … Continue reading Borrowed Q #157: Jan 6, 2021 was… a “revolution” of what, exactly?

Republicans Did Their Homework

While I’m a big believer in the concept of fair play, when one side writes their own rules while trying to tear the “everybody” rules to pieces, it’s time for the other side to do something else. You can’t explain or reason with a hungry cannibal; it’s gonna tear you to pieces.

I’m angry at the Republicans for their concerted campaign to destroy what they feel is the America that liberals made, and replace it with America as they feel it should be, as they believe our forefathers imagined it. If it feels like they are tearing down our legacy of laws and traditions that is because they are. Who could they get that was more suited than Trump to the task of deconstructing America? Republicans are calling their reset ‘originalism,’ ‘federalism’ – names that conjure images of our revolutionary roots and which sound patriotic. ‘Originalism’ is impossible to channel, so, unless you have a time machine, what we have is someone’s interpretation of originalism, most likely originalism as defined by the Federalist Society. George Washington was a Federalist. He fought for a strong central government. The modern Federalist Society says that States Rights have been…

Q #153: What’s your thought about “being the bigger person” in most situations?

We're in the middle of the holiday season and this is when the family drama most often gets going hard. I've also been listening to lots of stories online about tons of issues between friends, co-workers, family members... and--inevitably--someone's being asked to "be the bigger person." I think there are few phrases in the English … Continue reading Q #153: What’s your thought about “being the bigger person” in most situations?

Q #149: What might Donald Trump do between Election Day & Inauguration Day?

77 days. 11 weeks. That's how far between Election Day and Inauguration Day. This post is a hypothetical because I've got every finger and toe crossed that Dump loses and Biden will be sworn in at noon on January 20th, 2021. I'm operating under that assumption for the next few hundred words. I'd like to … Continue reading Q #149: What might Donald Trump do between Election Day & Inauguration Day?

I had to rein in my anger at Dump yesterday after the incomparable Beau reminded me of something…

I had been up since 3am yesterday because after Dump returned to the White House from the hospital and promptly took his mask off, I was just livid and it wouldn't let me sleep. And then the pictures of him going around without a mask, and then making that "don't worry" video... Yeah, let's just … Continue reading I had to rein in my anger at Dump yesterday after the incomparable Beau reminded me of something…

The months of This American Madness have robbed me of my mind…

If a group of scientists came out and said that millions of Americans were suffering PTSD from surviving 2020 (so far), that wouldn't surprise me a bit. Each day I see more posts about trying to be positive or do something, or posts about having difficulty dealing with what was going on lately. For myself, … Continue reading The months of This American Madness have robbed me of my mind…
