4. nolabear I understand totally.
This post will have to cover everything, as part of the reason I reallllllly need to vent, bang my head against every brick wall and exhale somehow.
The repiglicans have way way way tooooo much $money invested, and I'm so terrified there is more than we can see going on. That's too much money not to demand/expect something...which means spending more to get it. I trust them as far as i can throw my car.
NOt that I've gotten paranoid(HA!) but this whole tragedy over some nutcase's film, I even wondered IF some repiglican mind was behind it as a wrench in the machinery. Sorry but after Florida and Al Gore, and then the RNC in MN spending about $38K for their boy Coleman at the Deja Vu girlie club....
Worse, like stated a whole range of rants posted in one place. Last Thursday opened an email at Yahoo, from "USPS", I just had a b-day and thought "wonder if so and so sent something and the USPS is notifying me" I don't really care what the problem is labeled, I do care about the impacts. My nice puter is worthless now, so brought this piece of crap up from the basement, its old, its slow than molasses in winter, AND it doesn't have enough memory to add my printer. Of course on my partial SS I can only afford dial up, and that's slow and irritating enough.
Some days are diamonds, but the last ten days have been feces! For three weeks have had some rediculous allergic reaction for the fifth time this year, the biggest symptom is I look like I've been sucking on a hot tailpipe, its not like chapped lips, its more like a burn. Then the body decided to impede, and that is irritating enough. My favorite retired Pastor told my one good friend if I didn't see a doctor he was going to take me himself...which he did before when I had pneumonia. It gets better, so I call about this Free Clinic in the nearest big town, got paperwork in the mail, and it'll take four to six weeks after it is sent to Little Rock. Its not an emergency medical condition, it is annoying as hell though. THEN the new Pastor joins in, she works as the Chaplain for a hospice group, and wants to take me to see a retired doctor friend of her's that only sees folks in my financial position. Well thanks to something called Udderly Smooth, my face and mouth and lips are healing.
One of the proofs I needed was my income from SS, so I dared to drive my bald tires to SS, and the guy there says "Why aren't you on MedicAid?" Well when working at the school kitchen, hurt so bad feared the back would lock up and I'ld be leaving on a gurney, so went to DHS aka Welfare to apply for MedicAid, only to be told the ONLY way I would qualify is IF I were blind. It is $85 for an office visit to see a doctor, yeah, on $462 a month, like that'll work. I'm three years from full SS and MediCare. It's not been a good month so far.
Plus we started a Neighborhood Watch group here, the Mayor blames me for it happening, and because I was part of one in Mpls, she has made me the temporary chair...groan. Which brings me to another rant, but this one is about why Progressive is incredibly important:
It felt like fifteen minutes after Lar and I signed the 30year mortgage on the house, the GDN and Cript gangsigns started appearing. Yep. I ended up block leader as the real leader has MS and I was her "legs", UNTIL she ended up in the U of M hospital for four months, while the gang activities were amping up.
BUT Mn and Mpls is Progressive. Then City Attorney Amy Klobuchar, our State and County and City gave us poor schmucks tools to combat the hell.
And here I'll add a comment about Sept. 11, my community had spent years in a war zone, drivebys, gang dealers on every corner, hookers at all the bus stops, it just was nuts. Not to mention the ganghouses. ONE of the tools via the Mpls P.D. and Amy Klobuchar were called CIS/Community Impact Statements. These were given to the Judge to read at the time of sentencing after a conviction. It felt like I spent ten years writing CISs. BUT it meant that the sentences were lengthened, not just the revolving door policy that not only the Police resent! IF it weren't for the work of the Progressive minds in Mpls, there would have been more than the 34 homicide vigils I attended with the City Councilperson, whose name is Don Samuels. Don would not go to work, would hold a vigil at the homicide scene and he would fast as well. 34 Vigils in less than 3 years! Think about it. Up until then if there was a field on fire in Hennepin or Ramsey Counties, that would be covered but not the homicide on 26th and Knox. Its true.
THE above is the impacts of Progressive minds and democrats. It gave us who knew terror long before the nation on 9/11, TOOLS. DUers need to be able to really understand why Progressive is so vitally important.
PLUS in the last ten days it seems like nearly everything I've touched I've either broken or screwed up.
Even my sense of humor is shot! The ONE defense mechanism that has made me able to endure and survive, and its lacking.
Now it will take many minutes to upload this post. Lord give me patience but please hurry!
