A pet peeve of mine

is the fascist nomenclature of "Homeland." I hate it. Bush the Younger changed this. "Homeland Security." Bah. Homeland nothing. We are the United States. We are not some version of "Der Fatherland."

I want Joe to change it all back. We were doing just fine before! Our identity is not fascist!

I have gone so far as to reject courses labeled: "Homeland Security something." It is offensive to me, and I would not want a diploma hung on my wall with this word on it. It'd be like a Nazi award.

I don't know why brainless Bush had to do this. Now, we will have youngsters who know nothing else, and perceive it as normal.

Joe, Honey, do me a favor and just start changing it back. And, maybe while you're at it, take "In G-d We Trust" off the national money. We trust no one; we verify. And, also, I want Harriet Tubman on the $20. See if you can find a photo of her smiling.

The money came in.

I received the stimulus money by direct deposit on the day that they said they would give up the payment.

I feel it's worth mentioning, because everyone's been upset. I am still angry, because those Trumpians had to be threatened in order to distribute the money. I wonder what it's like to have the power to affect so many people, and you feel you should abuse that power?

Got news for you: Trump is gone. And we are NOT going to let him return. So, it did you no effing good to hang on to the money.

If you have any doubt about the ill will that the Repubs demonstrate against, oh, everybody, just remember this. There was absolutely no reason to hold this money back.

I'm becoming something of a Grey Panther. Look out Repubs, you now have many more enemies to cope with in 2022 and 2024! What were you thinking?
