About Me

I stand on the sand, and I'm rocking grief to sleep in my arms.

Journal Archives

so I've kinda quit watching the news. /rant on

I still read DU and WP and other sources. But this morning I thought I'll click on MSNBC.com and watch some shows I actually miss a bit (Chris Hayes, Nicolle Wallace, Brian Williams primarily).

but i was running around a little while it was on. anyhow.

So on the 11th Hour, discussing the record steal from congress members by trump's DOJ, one of the pundits, a woman who I cannot name, said, "But this is not trump's DOJ, this is Biden's DOJ."

BULLSHIT. in virtually every institution of government, trumpsters are still making life hell for Americans, flaunting the rule of law, abusing their power, and they are not all gone. Not by a long shot. Who's running the post office for instance? ICE is still running amok.

Joe Biden cannot turn around the damage in 3 months or 4 years or 8 years. I've said since 2017 that it will be generations. I do not appreciate pundits who insist on boiling it down to "now" and "then" as if "then" is not now and for years and years to come, infecting both now and the future.

FFS it pisses me off. It's not simple, and these people come on with their powerful voices and try to make it simple. Don't do that. Just tell the fucking truth.

I'm so happy for George Floyd's loved ones.

I know justice was denied in my daughter's case, but at least her killer went away for a little while. I have friends who never learned who killed their child and others who know who killed their child but the police never got enough evidence to charge. I was in the courtroom when a jury hung for the person who killed my friend's child. the police never took him back to trial.

George is still dead, but I feel sure that his family feels much better today than they did yesterday. I hope so.

Eddie Glaude's 'Gut Is Tight' Waiting For The Chauvin Trial Verdict Deadline MSNBC

Johnson and Johnson Vaccine Pause: A Rare Blood Clot Called Cerebral Venous Sinus Thrombosis (CVST)

MedCram with a great discussion on the J&J pause

MedCram COVID update

I can't stand Chauvin's attorney.

I'm just now catching up on testimony and have to skip past his, then watch the prosecution's rebuttal testimony. What I noticed today is that Nelson does almost all of the talking when he cross examines. All he wants from the witness is confirmation of his twisted attempts to create reasonable doubt, so he says what he says and all he gets is a yes or correct from the witness.

basically, he uses his time ostensibly examining the witness to testify. Is this objectionable? I certainly find it objectionable, but I'm not a lawyer.

Improving The Immune System and Stress Amidst COVID 19

so no witnesses.

it's a done thing. i hate this.

over the weeks of watergate hearings, many, many republicans changed their minds about whether he should be impeached and convicted. we're losing that. this rush job sucks.

Jamie Raskin just made me cry.

911 happened less than 2 months after my daughter was killed.
Jan 6 happened the day after he buried his son.
what i remember from 11Sep2001 is walking around feeling as if lead had been poured into my veins. it was so heavy.

I just want to hug him. I don't think it can be overstated how much courage, love, and patriotism he is proving by even being there.



watch if it you can; his speech was just before the first 10 minute break. not on youtube yet.

well, one thing remains the same.

i still can't listen to republicans and their BULLSHIT hypocrisy.
i have high blood pressure.
