This is a safe place.

Wear your safety pins proudly to stand against intolerance. No pulling back on womens' rights, LGBT rights, intimidation of immigrants.

If you want to fight

Fight with your pocketbook. Don't do business with companies that supported DT, cancel your credit cards, get off their mailing lists and tell them why. Don't go see or support celebrities who supported him or watch their movies or TV shows or buy their products or music. Wherever you see injustice, racism, or cruelty to others because of their race, religion, or sexualty, stand up for them. Join organizations that support the planet and raise people up. You have a voice, use it.

Black Days Ahead

Still not over Black Tuesday of 2016. What a horrid thing to happen to the world. What happened confirms that there is no supreme being watching over us...we're all alone on this planet. Love the ones close to you because the morons who voted that narcissistic, racist, sexist troll in are not going to love you or even be kind to you. We're doomed to a dystopian world. Fun, right?

Election and other stuff

Terrible, horrible, disgusting,  numbness. Hate that people went with that pig. People I know and love did that and I will never forgive them for it. I only hope the US can weather this travesty. I'm off of social media until I work through my feelings because I am disgusted with people and I don't want to see or hear from a majority of them ever again. My immediate family is not included in this rant.
He's not my president, he's a racist butt wipe and I will do my best to not see or hear him or support him in any way shape or form...EVER! Goodbye to the land I knew and loved. And no I'm not moving out of the country! I can voice my opinion, at least for now until the jackbooted thugs take over.

Doesn't feel like September

It's September and while our temps range from the 90's for highs and the high 70's for lows and doesn't feel very fall like, at least it's not in the 100's anymore.
Went to the doctor and my tests came out pretty good. The only troublesome result showed that I'm still on the cusp for diabetes. Bummer. I watch what I eat and even got a new tread mill and use it at least 5 minutes every hour from 7am to 7pm...for the most part. Sometimes I walk 15 minutes. I have a Fitbit so I can't fudge the numbers. Most days I reach my goal but when I don't I just resolve to do better. I've been getting nosebleeds as of late, had abut 5 of them so far, so my regular doctor is sending me to an ear, nose, and throat MD to hopefully see what's up.
The election is dragging on and on and on and on. The media which used to be made up of journalist has now become 'reality television' with screaming and yelling and mostly just reporting what they think has happened instead of the facts of what happened in any given story. Sad, sad. I don't know how things will turn out but I'm keeping my fingers crossed that we don't have a Brexit situation here when the dust settles.
We had a nice though quick visit with Cyndi. She moved away and came to pick up the rest of her things. Was lovely seeing her. Thank goodness for Hangouts, at least we can see her when she calls.
College football has started so my husband is happy about that. Not a lot of games in a short amount of time compared to baseball and basketball season but it's his favorite sport to watch.
Go Longhorns!
Roll Tide!

Sore Losers

We backed Hillary in 2008 and when she did not get the nomination we licked our wounds and got over it and backed Obama. I say this because I think that the Bernie Sanders backers should now do the same thing. He ran a good campaign but he lost so all of you should quit crying and get on with the work of helping Hillary beat Trump. All I hear from your losing camp is wah, wah, wah. Sheesh!

Quit being cry babies and sore losers.

"Yellow dog Democrats are Democrats who are fiercely loyal to their party, typically voting a straight Democratic ticket and always supporting Democratic candidates. The Democratic party of course greatly appreciates yellow dogs, although the term is sometimes used disparagingly to describe people who are blindly loyal to the party. Some Democrats have suggested that a small amount of disloyalty might actually be a good thing, allowing people to come up with constructive suggestions for making the party stronger.
The use of the term dates back to around 1900, when it was used to describe Southern Democrats, and it became popularized during the 1928 Presidential contest. Many Democrats in the South had lingering resentments against the Republicans left over from the period of Reconstruction after the Civil War, and as a result they decided to stand behind the Democratic party, sometimes at all costs, rather than supporting Republicans. The yellow dog Democrats were a serious force to be reckoned with in the American south as a result."
I'm a yellow dog democrat and guess I'll always be one. I truly don't like to discuss politics with others, especially those who make derogatory and inflammatory comments about the candidates I support.  Please keep your rhetoric to yourself and I won't throw shade on the candidate of your choice and goodness knows there is more than enough shade to throw! You vote your way and I'll vote my way.
