Excellent suggestions!

But sympathy for anyone "missing payments on the Lexus"? Nope, sorry.

My son lives in NYC & makes decent money which he spends on restaurants, good scotch, traveling. Hubby & I are his backup if he gets into financial hot water but we resent the hell out of his live-it-up spending/no savings lifestyle. (Yes, we've told him to save.) We've never spent money as he does (admittedly, hubby is way too much of a tightwad). If I can't manage much compassion for my son if he got into financial trouble, please don't ask me to feel sorry for or help anyone "missing payments on the Lexus." Good grief.

"Compartmentalization"

Hubs and I were just talking about this yesterday - how most Republicans excel at compartmentalizing. Just notice, they all seem to.

Or a new mutation which their immune system

Didn't carry antibodies for?

IF like cold viruses, it could mutate, think of the # of vaccines that would need to be developed! Yikes! A worst case scenario!

The only thing Republicans have to do is scream

Jesus and abortion and they line up to vote for them.

Sorry but this old gal has roots in East Tennessee. I've family in Greene, Hamblen, Jefferson, & Knox counties & own property in Blount county. Their history is not the same as the history of Appalachian West Virginia.
In Appalachian East Tennessee, religion controls viewpoints on most everything.

I read an East Tenn friend's FB page where she mentioned voting democratic and inevitably, the angry screams begin about socialism**. Nevermind that tRump is pals with Putin. Walk in to any eatery with a tv & you'll find Fake blaring.

Not long ago a sweet high school friend found my email and we recently began a multi email communication, until it happened: the standard assumption that I'm religious. Because, if I'm not, I'm going to hell. Shamefully I've kept the poor girl hanging for 2 wks now because I don't know how I handle this & stay true & authentic to myself. Suggestions, anyone? It's not the same as my telling my sweet, often religious DU friends that I'm an atheist. These East Tennesseans feel as if I just told them "I'm from Mars and I came to kill babies."

😪

I love Trae and think he's funny but he, imho, is making too light of their hardcore religious beliefs. But this is not to say that the area is densely hardcore red. It's not but it's just that too much of it is.


**Oh, what does socialism have to do with Christianity? This:
2 Thessalonians 3:10 King James Version (KJV): 10 "For even when we were with you, this we commanded you, that if any would not work, neither should he eat." Oh, the "Good Book" is full of contradictions, is it not? And these folks use these contradictions to justify their greed and bigotry. Cue LBJ's famous quote about southern folks. TRump is still using it. Sigh.

"The false promise of 'herd immunity' to beat COVID"

"If the United States were to throw open the economy and bet on creating herd immunity without a vaccine, the death toll could run into the hundreds of thousands."

The article quotes experts from JHU and notes that herd immunity did not work in Sweden.

Most still don't have a clue about the prelude

To the Iraq War, especially wingers. Somehow, in their minds, Saddam Hussein caused 911.

They swallowed all the lies that took half a million lives and cost almost $2 trillion.
And they keep electing liars.





Beautiful! ❤ these foxes.

And I especially love little Eastern Gray tree-climbers. I almost "tamed" one last year and was most flattered when she brought her kits to see me! These Eastern Grays cat-sized cuties are quite smaller than their Red cousins and are really able to climb trees!





Yes, ma'am.

I told you about that, didn't i? '79. That's when I first bummed up my knee, on a bad landing. My contacts popped out ( go figure), bra broke, shoes flew. Yeah, bad landing.
