About Me

I truly believe that we will all live in peace and brotherhood someday. And so that I don't lose my faith in humanity, I will live my life as if that day had already happened.

Getting out of a toasty-warm bed on a cold winter's morning

to go to the bathroom is a special kind of hell.

Coming back from the bathroom and snuggling back down under the warm covers again is pure Heaven.

Stuck at home, sick. Bored out of my mind. Any Loungers out there?

Bob Dole was the first Republican Presidential candidate I ever voted AGAINST.

I voted for George Bush Senior in 1988 (my first Presidential election) and again in 1992. By 1996, I was politically aware enough to know what a shitshow the GOP was (thanks for being so repulsive, Newt Gingrich!), and had embraced my inner liberal by then. in 1996, I voted for Bill Clinton, and have never voted for any Republican since then, at any level on the ballot.

If the electorate was not so closely divided, I might be tempted, as a liberal, to vote for a liberal Republican over a conservative Democrat. But the GOP has pretty much purged the party of liberals and moderates. So if voting for a less-than-liberal Democrat means keeping a majority, along with committee chairmanships, I'll do it.

We Democrats are like Sisyphus with his rock.

We finally rolled Georgia a tiny bit to the left, only to have Wisconsin roll crazily to the right.

Good morning, fellow Loungers.

I'm taking the advice of a beloved DU friend, and posting a thread that's not about work or drinking.

I hope you're all having a good week so far, and that everyone has exciting plans for Thanksgiving.

I love you all...

Up next for Kyle Rittenhouse:

Killing his mother and then begging the court for mercy because he's an orphan.

It's such a delight to be awake and not at work.

This entire recent work-week feels like a long dark tunnel from which I'm just now emerging.

Admin always overschedules me, counting on cancellations and no-shows to lighten the load but still making for an acceptable number of revenue-generating clinic visits.

And then there are the days when everyone shows up...

Concerned citizens cross the border to defend property, clean up graffiti, and offer medical care:
