Remember when "Godwin's Law" was still in full effect?

I don't know whether to or
It's horrifying how ONE person/One event changed EVERYTHING.

I'm sure this has been said by someone else today, but

can you imagine the UTTER FUCKING OUTRAGE if a REAL PRESIDENT tweeted this picture:




Of course, a REAL PRESIDENT never would.

Need help with transportation back and forth from doctors office

My wife is on her 3rd round of chemo(stage 4 lymphoma). So far I have been able to handle all the transportation needs. But with scans and more doctor OP visits coming up, it is becoming harder and harder to run my business AND do what is MOST important...getting her well again.
Do any of you have suggestions on inexpensive ways to handle my dilemma?
It's possible someone may have some experience with this and ideas I haven't thought of yet.
Thanks

Roll back the Reagan Tax Cuts (pre-Reagan rates)

This article from Thom Hartmann may be old, but it is more relevant now than ever.

"While there's much discussion about letting the Bush tax cuts expire, if we really want our country to recover its financial footing we must do something altogether different. We need to roll back the Reagan tax cuts that took the top marginal rate from above 70% down into the 30% range.

First, though, we have to help Americans realize that "no new taxes" is a mantra that is meaningful to the very rich, but largely irrelevant to average working people.

Only when the current generation re-learns the economic and tax lessons well known by the generation (now dying off) that came of age in the 30s through the 60s, will this become politically possible. Americans need to learn what Europeans know about taxes - they only matter to the rich.

Thus today the uber-rich are spending hundreds of millions to make sure words like "burden" are always associated with the word "tax," and to convince average working people that they should throw out of office any politicians who are willing to raise taxes on the rich.

We have a lot of education to do...and as long as the Right Wing Machine of the uber-rich continues to "lose" (e.g. "invest" millions of dollars a year in their ongoing disinformation campaign, it's going to require all of us reciting the mantra, "Roll back the Reagan tax cuts!"

Spin it all you want Ellen...

you were sitting there enjoying yourself next to a WAR CRIMINAL. One who was very responsible for the unnecessary deaths of almost a MILLION CHILDREN, WOMEN and Men. All for his ego and for $$. Not that you care ONE bit, but you lost all respect I had for you. Go sit next to Agent Orange next. I wont care.

Hey, watch this!!

In the deep south, where I grew up (and probably other places also), if you ever heard someone yell "Hey, watch this!" they were just about to do something very stupid (possibly dangerous).

This fucking administration used to give us a "Hey, watch this!" almost every day...now it seems like it is every other HOUR!

Sheesh, give it a break.

If there is ONE thing we have found out during this administration

it's that the President IS above the law IF his side of the aisle is corrupt also. In other words, if the resident of the White House has an "R" behind his name, he is above the law.

Until 2 weeks ago, all tweets showed in my DU windows

then I began to only get the link to the tweets, now the link shows up for ONE second, then completely disappears. My account settings are correct.
Thanks

Open carry question

This is going to come up sooner or later in my life. So, I thought I would ask for thoughts here. If I am sitting in a restaurant and a man or woman comes in with a gun strapped to their hip or worse, over their shoulder, I am going to feel unsafe.
Must I just sit there uncomfortably wondering if I am going to be shot, pay my bill and leave or is there another option?

Thanks
