Look what the Democrats have accomplished

Ending the week with the passing of the Inflation Reduction Act, historic legislation that will greatly benefit the whole county.
And, the long overdue but fantastic spectacle of justice finally being rained down on tfg.
Sure wish the our party and leadership were being heralded in media a whole lot more, but again, the orange freak is dominating. At least all the news for that mess is coming from a lot of directions, and none of it is good. We are hopeful, finally, he and his minions will get what they deserve, and our country can get past his toxicity.

Hearts are just lovely

This is such a good thing for this site to do, spread the love. Thanks!

My hopes for the New Year

An end to the pandemic fears, being able to see faces and smiles in public again.
Passage of the Big Back Better legislation as Biden proposed.
Bigger majorities in the House and Senate.
Mostly, I hope to never again see the faces of tfg or any of his relations unless in the context of criminal convictions.

My first encounter with a rabid anti-vaxxer

I was having lunch by myself, and a couple sat at a nearby table. He was in a state, seems he was just fired from his job because he wouldn't vaccinated. Loudly saying he was going to sue, the supreme court would soon rule that requiring vaccinations for Covid was unconstitutional and that his company could not get away with this. Had a lot to say about the stupidity of masks too.
I admit to living in a bubble of the fully vaccinated, and always wear a mask in public, (required in my county). He also claimed that the vaccinations are causing the variants.
This was my first encounter with one of these people, and it was ugly. I know there is a lot of this out there, and they continue to make life miserable for others, especially medical workers. I did consider calling him out, but decided that wouldn't end well, and left quickly.
Not sure what it's going to take to get this crisis handled, but damn, this guy was scary.

Fly your flag on Nov. 3rd

This is a great idea, this is our country, we love it and are taking it back in a big blue tsunami.

Here's a really fun thing to fantasize about

Biden's Cabinet. Harris, Attorney General, kicking ass and taking names. Warren, Treasury, Abrams, HUD. We have a wealth of highly qualified people committed to the welfare of our democracy, our country and people.
Susan Rice for Vice President.
Interesting column from former SF Mayor Willie Brown yesterday

Performance for the world

Andrea Bocceli's gift this morning.
I am not religious, but Amazing Grace sung by this man in front of the cathedral in Milan, alone, was beautiful.

I am so tired of the time suck all the drama has created

Summer of 2016, we were traveling with friends and she was fascinated with the pre-election behavior of Trump. I kept saying to ignore it, no one can take him seriously and after November we will never see him again.
And here we are, three years later, and it is and has been all this time, impossible for me to ignore what has happened, and the creature that has emerged in full from the candidate. I have found it very difficult to ignore the daily outrages and frustrations, so have spent an inordinate amount of time checking news, reading my favorite pundits, watching a few news shows. Nostalgic for a time when we could go about our lives, secure in the knowledge that at least parts of our government were taking care of business in the interest of the country. Thanks, Obama.
Now this trial is starting and we are getting into the full swing of elections that will determine whether our country and likely the world will survive. This is not how I planned to spend retirement.
