About Me

Just a poor liberal lesbian living in the deep south. Don't expect me to be nice just because I am a liberal. I am kind of bitchy with an attitude problem.

On the Covid Diagnosis of the Trumps.

I go to right wing sites and see death wishes and hatred. I see them gloat in the death of RBG. They praise people like the 17 year old who, with his mother, hunted and murdered innocent protesters. If Biden tested positive, they would be howling in delight

I don't miss seeing that here. I don't miss the gloating and disgusting comments. As much as I hate that man and what he and his enablers have done done to this country, I am happy that Democratic Underground has a moral compass.

Thank you.

"You don't get to have' healthcare if you can't afford it."

North Carolina resident Bev Veals recorded a phone call she had with a Tillis staffer, who compared health insurance to a "dress shirt" and said "if you can't afford it, you don't get to have it."
Tillis, who's facing a strong challenge in his bid for reelection this year, has voted several times to repeal the Affordable Care Act, also known as Obamacare, without replacement legislation.
Millions of Americans have lost their employer-sponsored health insurance as a result of pandemic-related job losses.

'Unprecedented public attack': Widespread shock as Trump blasts the Pentagon -- from the White House

Source: Raw Story

President Donald Trump accused the top brass of the Department of Defense of needlessly waging wars to boost the profits of defense contractors during a Labor Day press conference held at the White House.

“I’m not saying the military’s in love with me, the soldiers are, the top people in the Pentagon probably aren’t because they want to do nothing but fight wars so that all of those wonderful companies that make the bombs and make the planes and make everything else stay happy,” Trump argued.

I just got a glimmer of hope.

I was reading my Facebook feed (yes, I'm still on Facebook, fuck Mark Zuckerberg)when a friend's friend posted that she no longer supported trump and she is disgusted that she ever did.

She cites his handling if the covid virus and the BLM protests as reasons. She also said that she originally supported him because he was a maverick, a Washington outsider. Said she thought his campaign rhetoric was just to rally the base and that his governing style would be different.

She also says arguing with his die hard supporters is worthless and that it just makes their resolve to support him stronger. The answer she says, is to get out the vote for Biden.

So, there's my glimmer of hope for the day.

Source: Blacksportsonline.com

We know Kyle Rittenhouse is part of a white supremacist militia group. He traveled to Kenosha to help the police and they welcomed the help from a white supremacist.

Reports are he is only 17-years-old but was encouraged never vetted by police who gave him water and instructions on how to murder protesters.

Multiple videos show him getting into a fight with protesters and in the end he murders two of them and wounds another.

Lola is home!

This is Lola on her ride home today. The other two are still missing.

The Joe Budd Wildlife Refuge in Midway, Florida called the Gadsden County Humane Society and reported that she had been hanging out there for a week. Judy at the Humane Society recognized her and called me. I rode out there and called to her and she came. This place is about 5 miles from home.

She's covered in ticks and fleas and has what looks like a healing animal bite of some kind on her hind leg. She got a bath, some fresh water a meal and some flea and tick repellent.

My Three Lost Dogs. (Still lost)

But this is my new rescue, Sashie. She has helped mend our shredded hearts after losing all three dogs on

Thank you everyone who read the original post and responded with such kind words.

My three lost dogs.

On June 20th of this year, my three amigos dug out from under my fence and disappeared into the Apalachicola forest area in Midway, Florida. I've done everything in my power to bring them back home but it hasn't worked.

I've called all over, posted on several lost pet listings on Facebook and Craigslist for my area. Have visited the local humane society, been in touch with animal control and the park services. Nothing.

I am beyond devastated and have been crying nearly nonstop for 2 weeks. This is the three of them as youngsters.

This is Mali.

This is Harley.

This is Lola

Just posting this to let you know to hug your babies tight and give them extra treats for me. You never know when something like this can happen.

People, I'm so sad, angry, hopeless, helpless.

My country is devolving right before my eyes. I worked hard in the 80's to protest Apartheid in South Africa. I protested the Klan marching in Tallahassee, Florida. I have been vocal. I've never backed away from a racist.

I have actively opposed racists and have even risked my safety to call down an asshole white man who was using racist language as he tried to fix my car in a Winn Dixie parking lot in Monticello, Florida. Made him get his fucking head out of my car, I was so furious.

I don't know fucking what else to do. What do we do to stop this madness of racism in this country? It isn't enough to get rid of trump. How do we change the hearts and minds of the brainwashed?

Sorry if my language has disturbed you. I'm just so goddamned hurt and angry and so sad. My heart is breaking.
