  • Trevor Noah is one of my favorites. 🙂

  • What has to be remember also,, is that most of the demogogues, are really not at war with the elite as they try to convince the rest of us that they are. Like trump, they usually come from the ranks of the rich and elite…or at least privileged, and use our anger against us to divide us against each other. That’s what trump did, for sure.

  • I would love to see the Green Party be ascendent. But right now we have to fight the “republican versus democrat” game. Maybe when more people wake up about the environment, the Green party will have its chance.

  • Glad I was able to clarify. I often find that people don’t get my way of addressing things the first time. Sorry. 🙂

  • Actually, that is not a mistake in paragraph 3 although it might seem misleading if it is read a different way than I meant. Biden has suggested that all Americans need to come together and not consider each other enemies. The problem is that many of the trump supporters hate minorities and would do anything they could to deny us (and I include…[Read more]

    To start, let me just announce that only four persons are currently blocked. They are blocked because of their prior reaction to me and will remain blocked for the foreseeable […]

    • Where have I been? This is the first I am hearing about this story. As you can tell…..I do live in my own little world..HA!

      You made an Error up in Paragraph 3. It’s not Biden who is suggesting people should not fear the little boys….it was Trump.

      As you know…I don’t care for Trump or Biden…..but I did vote for what I think is the lesser evil…..Biden.
      But I could have been selfish and just let things be since Trump actually gave my household a BIG BIGLY HUGELY Tax cut and we didn’t even need one. My sons accountant called months ago and informed them of the new Tax information and we all just couldn’t stop laughing before we felt a bit sad for the working folks who actually believe he looks out for them. We laughed because it was just INSANE that people who need no tax cut….GOT A TAX CUT. But believe me….that BIGLY HUGELY tax cut we didn’t even want will just be given to charity.

      Cheers to Hawaii….my fellow Indigenous Brothers and Sisters 😉

      • Actually, that is not a mistake in paragraph 3 although it might seem misleading if it is read a different way than I meant. Biden has suggested that all Americans need to come together and not consider each other enemies. The problem is that many of the trump supporters hate minorities and would do anything they could to deny us (and I include myself as a gay man as part of the minority) our civil rights and equality before the law.

        In other words, Biden is suggesting being more “forgiving” than I am able or willing to be for the folks in the extreme right like the Proud Boys who are a threat to many of us. Sorry if my word choice confused you.

        Now, I can’t remember who I voted for in the primary. I know I voted for Bernie in 2016. I am not sure who all was available at that time. I supported Elizabeth Warren and/or Bernie Sanders, although I leaned this time toward Elizabeth Warren. If Elizabeth and Bernie were eliminated before the primary, I probably voted for Biden because I didn’t like a couple of the others, and thought Biden had a better chance of winning. I voted for Hillary in the general election in 2016 for the same reason. I would NEVER have voted for trump…ever.

        Now, I didn’t really get a tax cut as such, or not anything like I was “promised”. But I did get the 1200 stimulus, which I used to invest in alternative fuel industries….the entire thing was sent as a check to my business management with the stipulation to put the money in ART Investments which is all about innovative technology using alternative fuel sources. I figured that was a good way to use trump approved money to fight the trump agenda, which i have always seen as destructive to the environment as well as to the more needy people whose health care he is endangering.

        • Ok…..I get it now. Yes…being forgiving and understanding can be difficult for many people. I understand where you stand. LOVE the way you invested your stimulus.

          • Glad I was able to clarify. I often find that people don’t get my way of addressing things the first time. Sorry. 🙂

  • I found this book very disturbing but would give it an 8 1/2 or 9 on a 1-10 chart.  It falls into the category of Science Fiction and tends toward the area called alternative history whether or not that was […]

  • 0r maybe…Monk is not for you but i like it. 🙂

  • I fear you might be right….he is presently suing states to stop the counting of votes.

  • I have been binge watching Monk for the last week or two.  There were a total of 8 seasons on whatever channel and network it was originally on.  I don’t remember, and don’t care enough to c […]

    • Hi Friend 😉

      I tried watching Monk a few years ago and honestly he just irritated me too much. Maybe I didn’t give him much of a chance? I don’t know…..but I just know my nerves would be on edge while watching. Ha!

  • I am a Democrat, who is solidly Democratic. I have always been and always will be. However, I have to admit that I have not been that the nation has never been as adversely affected by Republicans before. trump is simply a different animal, and I have thought for the longest that he is all about an authoritarian, dictator style form of…[Read more]

  • Yah, just imagine being able to wave your hand and make anything that you wanted to happen, happen. I can think of all sorts of things that I would be doing right now. LOL All the doubt about the upcoming election here in the states would be resolved immediately and I would be rich and not have to worry about anything.

    I felt the same way…[Read more]

    • I remember watching this show as a child, it was my mother’s favourite tv show. Sam’s mother used to creep me out!

    • This show made me WISH to be a witch so bad!

        I felt the same way about I dream of Jeanne which I watched growing up also.

  • I know how the mind just naturally turns to Covid whenever there is any kind of cold like symptoms, or even allergies. I have allergies that go most of the year, and it keeps me on edge about Covid-19. I had a blood test and that was negative. But until some people, I am still wearing a mask and social distancing around other people and will do…[Read more]

    oh well, sorry about that. Good luck finding what you really want. I don’t burn candles, all I do with them, on those very rare occasions when I get some–usually because it is to benefit a charity, I just look at the pretty color of the physical candle. 🙂

    Nice assortment of candles.

  • And it affected me so much, that to now, I haven’t been able to even consider watching the earliest episodes again because my mind immediately goes to what I call the “sell-out”.

  • That is certainly a horribly bad situation. The culture is not kind to women for sure but it is the culture, not the mere fact of being ethnically from that area of the world which is a point that you made. You know the Amish in this country don’t kill but they do shun anybody that leaves the community which strikes me as being cruel as well.
