Is anyone else having trouble making donations through ActBlue?

I've tried to make multiple donations in the last few weeks. Sometimes I think they've gone through but then they don't ever show up on my donations history. Last month my credit card company put a hold on some of my charges to ActBlue because they looked suspicious, but I called them and told them to put a note on my account that all ActBlue charges are ok. But I still have not been able to make a donation that goes through. Sometimes there is not even a verify donation button on the page.

Wouldn't it make more sense for the Republicans...

...to take a risk and not fill Ginsburg’s seat until after the election? KNowing there is a seat to immediately fill, requiring a Republican Senate to confirm a Republican appointee....wouldn’t that really motivate their base to vote? If they Rush to confirm the appointee before (and they don’t really have time) The election, the base will relax, not go and vote and Trump will lose and they’ll all go to jail. Thoughts?

Rachel Maddow martini...

Ok, I did my best to make the martini the exact way I remember Rachel said. As she instructed, I didn't eat the olives...not yet anyway. I'm still working on the martini--drinking it, that is, and I have to say, I am just not woman enough to enjoy it. I had to add some triple sec...which technically makes it a Martinez. At least I can drink it now...very slowly. I'll have to check out some of her other drinks. She's not just a brilliant journalist, she is a pretty competent mixologist by reputation. Favorite things of mine.

Yesterday I had a nice experience at the gas pump...

I was in scrubs and had just finished gassing up. A lady knocked on my car window, gave me a roll of small trash bags to use for handling gas pumps, and thanked me for being a health care worker. It's nice to be appreciated. The smallest gesture can matter when someone is tired and had a rough week/month/year.

The most heartbreaking thing ...

...about parting ways with Trump supporters you once called friends is knowing that even if irrefutable evidence of his corruption were presented (and there is plenty of that), those Trump supporters you love and would call your friends would not be swayed by any of it. It simply wouldn't matter. You have to wonder if there is any floor to the corruption, immorality, inhumanity they will tolerate. And then when you realize there is not a place low enough that would cause them to reconsider their allegiance to the most vile, you, then, must be the one to walk away from the relationship to preserve your own integrity. It involves grief, bitter disappointment, and yes, simply a broken heart to admit that so many people you know and love actually have so little integrity or moral fiber. Like a lover you realize you never really knew, you walk away with your heart shattered, wishing it could have been different. It is not a mere difference of opinion or political perspective that destroys our friendship. It is the huge chasm, a gulf, between our most fundamental values and theirs, that causes this final ripping apart of your heart and your relationships.

Goodbye to those I once considered friends. I am leaving you all behind at once so I don't have my heart broken a thousand times more.

Election/covid-19 anxiety

An expert says, "...it is important to set boundaries to optimize your own mental health and not let stressful news cycles take over your life. It is important to retain perspective in the overall picture..."

That's the problem: the overall picture is what's scaring the living shit out of me.
