About Me

I reside in Fayetteville, Arkansas. I am female, single, and one year from full retirement. I'm already retired from a 30-year career with IBM. Love my Victorian house built in 1858 and my dogs and cats.

Here's a lousy photo of my 2018 Fair Cake. Won for 8th. year.

This sums up the 'Trump GOP' perfectly.

"You've heard me say this many times before: Itís not heaven if everybody gets to go.† The best part about Conservative Heaven isnít being up there with Jesus, no, itís gloating at the poor saps burning forever down below. Ha ha HAH. Weíre Saved, fuck you, losers! And that horrible selfish religion shapes everything else. We got ours, our healthcare, our food, our clean water, our homes, our jobs, our retirement, our stock options, our savings, our opportunity, our salvation, so fuck you. The best part of America is that everybody doesnít get to go. Thereís no point in privilege if everybody is privileged. You canít think of yourself as exceptional if†everybody†is exceptional. Thereís no point in being rich if everybody else is rich too. They see liberty and justice and freedom as a zero sum game. If others get more, they are somehow diminished, lessened, cheated of their exalted status and made average.

This is the very core of modern Republicanism where†everything†is for profit, prisons, healthcare, education,†religion, civil rights, equality, justice, liberty, all of it for money. And so long as you get yours, well, then to hell with everybody else because thereís not enough to go around and heaven isnít heaven if everybody gets to go.

These people are almost literally the rich sons of bitches who rowed away from the Titanic in half empty lifeboats as 1500 people drowned in freezing water behind them. Fuck you, losers! I got mine."
