I know that your mom is unfortunately not alone. So many elderly people have been doing exactly the right things during this pandemic. It is incredibly unfair that doing the right thing for your physical health winds up affecting your cognitive and mental health so severely. Even many seniors without dementia are… Read more
I read tons of books on my iPad. My local library card has an extensive and ever expanding collection of ebooks. (most libraries have access to several different ebook apps. My library for example has Libby/OverDrive, Hoopla and Freading plus Kanopy for movies). I try not to buy books, either in paper or digital… Read more
I don’t know what the truth is here - one suspects somewhere is the messy gray area between the indictment and Jia’s story on it. But why is this being used to pummel her? It does not appear that she was personally involved at any level (except, you know being related to her parents). So the push to cancel her seems… Read more
I’d be less pro-eviction in her case if someone, anyone was working with her to fix the problem. She’s a long term tenant of more than 20 years so there’s been a long history of complaints and issues that have gone unresolved. Truthfully at this point she should be in an assisted living facility because she does spend… Read more
I don’t disagree that we should be focused on policy and goals. But I suspect the main focus will still be on did he or didn’t he ugh this guy etc. I feel like it’s important to acknowledge that he doesn’t have to be the perfect choice to be electable? And that people can vote for candidates that they both dislike and… Read more
Yup. all of this. The Republicans are masters at splitting the base and leaving a stink lingering over the whole race. That’s why they love voter fraud allegations, party shenanigans and voter suppression. Every little bit that peels off voters helps keep them in power.
Ugh. ragestrokes forever
Yup. And they do with with everything. It’s so easy to shade the stories when you get a message from on high. Even something as simple as killing positive stories of homeless people helping someone, or drug addicts getting their lives together, or immigrants doing laudable things helps shape the narrative,. If all you… Read more
I am totally on board with an investigation and setting up a process for this going forward. But unless there’s some huge smoking gun somewhere (unlikely, even the supposed contemporaneous disclosures are questionable for various reasons) then the investigation will end with a sigh and everyone throwing up their… Read more
It is the propaganda network,. They all work together to speak with one voice and blanket the airwave with one message. It is a total baldfaced lie? Most of the time. But it’s impossible to have multiple outlets push back without a central message. And of course the truth is always nuanced unlike the fantasies they… Read more
The DNC didn’t blow it though, they did exactly what the set out to do. Because the DNC is peopled by the very same idiots that thought Hillary was a slam dunk and that Kerry couldn’t lose. They are old school out of touch dinosaurs just like Joe. We need to work on bringing the DNC up to date and also to start… Read more
Oh god I don’t have the energy for another impeachment hearing. Also what would he get impeached for? Conduct unbecoming?
