For Robin, may he RIP.

I care a lot about homeless vets

I just don't see how tearing down the General Officers helps the cause any.

My brother was a homeless vet. Didn't have him living with me because 1. He has a bad problem with alcoholism and 2. He raped me repeatedly when I was a kid. But mostly reason #1. He steals and destroys any living space he is in.

I thank my higher power he is currently sober at a long-term VA facility he has been in for the past 8 months. They will also pay for him to go back to school and become an LPN. They are taking care of his dental problems and medical problems too.

Why didn't he take advantage of that program earlier? He wanted to keep drinking. He would rather be homeless and drink than be there and not allowed to drink. He only goes when the law gives him the choice of that or prison.

He does well in the program then when they set him up with a job and a car and a room and then let him go free, he goes back to drinking. Again and again.

But they always pick him up again and try to help him. I'm grateful for that.

I do care about homeless vets, a great deal.

I guess I wonder why a neurologist needs to know those things in order to treat me for MS.

The only interaction I want from doctors is for them to order appropriate tests, inform me of results, prescribe needed medications like the Copaxone I shoot up daily.

I will describe troubling symptoms to them, of course, but I have no desire to be "friends" with any doctor.

That's what I meant by "not letting them in."

I despise doctors who treat me as if I were a child they can manipulate with fake friendliness.

True. But I'm thinking, there are equally bad posts left standing at say, free republic,

And we don't go there and bang our heads trying to respond to those.

If DU is a lost cause for women, I keep coming to the conclusion, it's time for me to walk away. It makes me sad but I don't see any way of making DU a place where those of us who care about feminist issues can remain free of coordinated attacks. For me at least, the attacks are extremely upsetting and I lose my cool. For me, DU has become a place where I don't feel safe.

This. Society is fed up with us women and the war on women will intensify to

Frightening levels. Society is mad at women who had babies because there are too many people in the US now and too much competition for scarce resources, and just like in ravaged regions in Africa, women will be severely punished for being women.

Society is angry about the gains women have made in equal rights, careers, etc.

We are going to experience one hell of a backlash and loss of contraceptives, safe abortion, etc. will be just the start.

Our lives will soon be like the lives lived by women under the Taliban. Or worse, because the menfolk who are conservative (and unfortunately many who are moderate or even liberal) are seething with anger.

Part of the anger is from some men feeling entitled to every woman they fancy. Porn tells them women owe them sex. All women and girls, all the time. And if a girl won't let you scoop out her eye with a hot spoon and skull-f*ck her like you see in those hot porn vids? Rage, rage, rage. She is an object there to serve. How DARE she say "no?" Not all men think like this, but there ARE some sick men who do. I know because I have run into them! unfortunately.

When I saw the memo being used to indoctrinate officers, sent from LTG to a MG in the Air Force, I knew what was up. A memo explaining how we have to save the white race. Detailing how we need to outlaw abortion AND all contraceptives. How we have to eliminate education for women because women are out of control and need to be put in their place.

That is the stuff the top leaders are publicly distributing without fear. What are they saying behind closed doors?

I hope the MS or something kills me within the next ten years because I have an idea of what the future will hold, especially for us women, and it will be a blessing to just be dead in those times.

The Dominionist movement has got to be stopped.

http://www.politicususa.com/2013/10/30/left-accept-ted-cruz-dominionist-messiah.html

Snippet:

As Huffington Post reported earlier this month, “It turns out that Ted’s father, Rafael Cruz, is a pastor with Texas charismatic ministry Purifying Fire International who has been campaigning against Obamacare the last several months.”

According to New Beginnings’ dominionist pastor, Larry Huch, Ted Cruz got elected to the senate because God is about to begin his “rule and reign” and there will be a big “end-time transfer of wealth.” Somehow, transfering wealth is a good thing when the money is being taken from non-believers and awarded the church but bad if rich folks and corporations are expected to pay their way.

End of Snippet, more at link.

They want most of us to die already. Starving preferred, as a starving person

Is lethargic and less of a threat.

They know exactly what they are doing. They want NO government aid and almost NO ONE making a living wage because they want most of us to die.

It is just more convenient and less costly for them to kill us via starvation rather than the gas chambers.

Peter Morici on the Cycle saying it is fine to not raise the debt ceiling

That it would not be default on debt, that we could easily prioritize payments, no biggie.

Another right winger on Morning Schmoe was pushing the same meme.

I wonder if they are planning on not raising the debt ceiling?

On Morning Schmoe some woman is saying defaulting on debt no big deal

She said basically it would be just fine because all we would have to do is pay the interest on the debt and the military, and nothing else. Said it would actually be a good thing because it would force us to balance the budget overnight.

Is this the new GOP talking point? Are they planning on NOT raising the debt ceiling now? Sure sounds like it to me.

She said you could tell it would not be catastrophic because the bond markets are still fine.

Jeez I really think that is their plan at this point.

It is this bad because a small group of ultra rich men,

Like the Kochs and others who have no loyalty to this nation, want our nation to fail spectacularly and for there to be so much pain and death they can sweep in with their wealth and buy all of America, including us peons whom they can work to death or take kidneys from or grind up for dog food for their dogs.

These men, and their useful idiots, want to destroy our nation utterly and entirely so they can take whatever they want for free or for pennies. Because, you know, their billions aren't nearly enough, they want the gold from our teeth and our fat for soap making and our skins for lampshades.

Go ahead and Godwin me. I don't care. This is the truth as far as I see it.
