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.

Play it safe and lose again ?
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
