Do you ever just want to scream and scream and never stop?

I guess 3 margaritas is my new limit.




I just took a Communications Course at work that gave me a possible way to talk to my Almost a MAGA son.

It's hopeful, but my present situation and my fear of trying this option is tearing me apart.

Having my son live with me and having him so sucked into the tRump world is like having him here but he's dead.

We can't talk without fighting.

STILL this Communication Course which conveniently hung up at the same spots several times making me go over it several times, OK God I get it.

And I figured out that if I let my son talk for 10 minutes on his subject of choice, but put a bunch of structure around it so I only have to basically tell him I heard you. I may disagree, but I heard you. That it could bring my son back from the dead basically.

I'm happy and hurting and freaking out.

Wealth Gap. It's been a thing since USA began, but it's WORSE

I am still looking for the earliest information, but I know these things changed a bit in the 1950's and that is when we got a middle class.

But corporate welfare has given those at the top so much more of the share of wealth and it's been TAKEN from the rest of US and they dodge taxes, hide their money off shore, pass it on via family wealth. So much of that WE NEVER GET BACK.

My son's cat died in my grandson's arms.

We suspect he got into some rat poison somehow. He couldn't have eaten that many poisoned rats to do this. Unless he was stuck in a garage and that was all there was to eat. He had a little blood coming from his one nostril and his breathing was labored. It was sad, but we were grieving together until grandson was so upset that everything is "SO EXPENSIVE" now.

I said it has been that way for a long time. I know it to be true. Maybe 15-20 years ago I was giving another cat fluids subcutaneously for an illness we weren't certain of its origin because the bill would have been over four thousand to do all the tests and with no guarantee of prolonging her life.

Yesterday we went to the emergency vet after the cat appeared under my husband's car. He had gotten out and was missing for 6 days. The only thing the vet diagnosed initially was dehydration and gave him fluids and the option of 1-2 days of hospitilization to the tune of three to five thousand dollars. We got the fluid hydration and antinaussea shot and brought him home with the hope of going to the regular vet and getting a fuller diagnostic at non-emergency rates.

At least we had him home and gave him lots of love. He passed around 2 am, but woke up my son and grandson with some awful howls and then it was over.

I got up and was doing my best to be supportive, but then the poison my son planted in my grandson came out the younger's mouth, "NO IT'S ONLY BEEN THIS EXPENSIVE SINCE 2020 WHEN BIDEN TOOK OVER"

I said "NO IT'S BEEN THIS WAY A LONG TIME" he insisted and I lost it and said, "FUCK YOUR HEAD" and my son got all mad at me for "MAKING IT POLITICAL" and giving the kid a ration during his time of grief. I told him, "NO. I DID NOT MAKE IT POLITICAL. HE DID WHEN HE STARTED BLAMING BIDEN."

FOR GOD'S SAKE. In history, Biden will show up as one of the best if not the best President's ever for putting up with all this crap and STILL doing his job daily, but the MAGA masses are being taught to blame him for everything.

New Appreciation for Garth Brooks - We Shall Be Free

Some little story online about "controversial music lyrics" brought up this song and I think I have heard it but haven't been a major fan of country music because the stations tend to ban people, like the Dixie Chicks and songs like this one. So unlike some songs I can't hear the whole thing in my brain as I read the lyrics.

But THE LYRICS are perfect for NOW. An Anthem for DUers and everyone who wants an America and a World that lives in the mindset of loving others as they are and keeping your own self in line is not only Patriotic but deeply Christian as Jesus never spent time outing gays or worshiping all the rich folk for their blessed selves.

Garth Brooks Lyrics
"We Shall Be Free"

This ain't comin' from no prophet
Just an ordinary man
When I close my eyes I see
The way this world shall be
When we all walk hand in hand

When the last child cries for a crust of bread
When the last man dies for just words that he said
When there's a shelter over the poorest head
We shall be free

When the last thing we notice is the color of skin
And the first thing we look for is the beauty within
When the skies and the oceans are clean again
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud
'Cause we shall be free
When we're free to love anyone we choose
When this world's big enough for all different views
When we all can worship from our own kind of pew
Then we shall be free
We shall be free

We shall be free
Have a little faith
Hold out
'Cause we shall be free

And when money talks for the very last time
And nobody walks a step behind
When there's only one race and that's mankind
Then we shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, walk proud, have a little faith, hold out
We shall be free

We shall be free
We shall be free
Stand straight, have a little faith

We shall be free




Garth Brooks wrote this song in response to the 1992 Los Angeles Riots when the six-day disturbance spread through the city including the beating of Rodney King, an African American taxi driver, by the police.

Many radio stations refused to play this track because of the line "When we're free to love anyone we choose". This message was seen as a call to defend gay rights. That's why Garth Brooks missed the country chart's top 10 for the first time.

The singer recalled the controversy in a 1993 Rolling Stone interview, "I feel bad any time somebody brings up the Christian aspect against 'We Shall Be Free'. Because it was meant to be a gospel song. It was meant to be the truth as I saw it. And being called Brutus and Judas, all kinds of things, really hurts. I do believe that God exists. I do believe in the Bible. But I can't see that loving somebody is a sin."

For his second compilation album, "The Hits", Garth Brooks wrote, "I never thought there would be any problems with this song. Sometimes the roads we take do not turn out to be the roads we envisioned them to be. All I can say about 'We Shall Be Free' is that I will stand by every line of this song as long as I live."
