LOL but if only they were forced to look into a mirror more often...

I appreciate your penultimate paragraph, Ashley. That these two are Jews is enough to make me run screaming into the void. Their actions are so far from what I understand Judaism to be about. Read more

Let me preface this by saying we are not rich or even wealthy. We happen to live in one of the most affordable places to live in the country and have a nice 4 BR house. My spouse stopped getting scheduled at his hourly job during COVID and therefore didn’t qualify for any of the incentives — no unemployment, no Read more

I got divorced 5 years ago and started from scratch. I didn’t acquire a lot of things because I’m not very good at decorating, and I immediately fell in another relationship, so the plan was always that we would eventually live together full-time. I didn’t know it would take 5 years and a pandemic to finally make it Read more

I get the impression that the Millers (yes, both of them; probably their unborn child as well since Katie is pregnant and I don’t think for a second they’ll be decent human beings when it comes to raising their kid) are so insecure in their “whiteness” that they over-compensate by having a complete lack of sympathy Read more

Yay for sprucing up the house! My quarantine spruces: I bought a new duvet cover + pillowcases to refresh the bedroom, replaced a clunky bathroom mirror with a new one that is much more sleek, and got some cute railing planters for my balcony that are now spilling over with red petunias and sweet potato vines. I also Read more

I decided that now is the time to replace all of my skincare and bath stuff with the cleanest I can find. I ordered samples about 2 weeks ago from a bunch of companies to try before committing to larger sizes. Read more

Since our dog had CCL surgery in February, we’ve been sleeping on our king mattress on the floor with our box springs in the hallway. Now we’re wondering why we need the box springs? So I bought a platform bed which should arrive soon. Read more

Full-on deck renovation will be underway late July/early August.  I’ve been avoiding this for years because I’m cheap and hiring a company for this is expensive.  Then coronavirus hit and I was on lockdown the whole month of April and I could have been enjoying a new deck if I hadn’t been cheap and busy.  So....I’ll Read more

After many years of having a kitchen with one drawer, one outlet, and about 2 square feet of counter space, I moved and have a real kitchen and can use my kitchen aid (<3), coffee maker, coffee grinder, soda stream, tea kettle, stove, sink, and food prep ALL AT THE SAME TIME if I wanted to.

Look—If we are for prison reform, then we don’t need her in jail. That is a waste of public resources just so you can feel some sort of justice. Read more

Your strategy has been a proven failure every time since 1985. Picking the slightly less republican democrat doesn’t work. There is a reason there are two right wing democrat senators from republican states and then every time when they do hold power and key legislation comes up democrats then don’t have the votes so Read more

The comment you responded to blows my mind. Its amazing that people are down here arguing against that Charles Booker would have been more exciting than running someone who began her campaign trying to paint herself as a pro-trump democrat. Read more

I agree with that take. In the context of Booker’s huge surge of voter enthusiasm and near-upset win, Dems in Kentucky, like myself, are so damn ready for a true liberal candidate. I was gonna vote for McGrath because McConnell can go to hell and really should. But once Booker came on the scene, myself and a whole Read more

McConnell ain’t losing so having this argument is just so pointless, but points for making me read “vote blue no matter who” the one millionth time this cycle.
