You can't convince me there wasn't coordination at the highest levels.


Will they pay for their crimes?

Remind me: what is the punishment for treason?

Sudden significant rise in anti-Asian violence in US.

My bet: veiled retaliation against VP Harris.

Just like with Obama.

Check out my new signoff

A paraphrase of a quote I saw on Twitter today. From Mark Shields.

Woot! 👍

2nd Pfizer shot in the arm! Ready to re-enter society...gradually!

Finally get to see 92 year old mother-in-law after a year! We were planning to go to her birthday last March 15th... right when COVID hit. She's fully vaccinated, too, now, so...so grateful we all made it to this point!

Cleaning with electrolysis generator

searching on this all I can find are marketing sites.

Anyone here have any knowledge about this? I guess you add a little salt to water and through the magic of electrolysis, voila, you have a safe, effective cleaning solution??

For Laelth and his daughter,

if you've been following his plight in Texas, dealing with temps, broken pipes.

I know I felt desperate to help. Someone here, who we know, in our beloved community.

A gofundme:

Just reviewed my 1st Medicare statement and I'm about to cry...

I have made it a "hobby" to pursue incorrect and over-billings on medical bills in my day. I have reduced my medical bills several times by being diligent about this. I also worked for a bankruptcy attorney for a time and saw firsthand folks having to file due to medical debt! This is a CRIME in my view!

I've always gotten so frustrated with the opacity of medical billing. Usually requires multiple cross-referencing and sometimes actual phone conversations with industry representatives - rarely helpful (except when my husband had his union insurance!).

Anyway - my Medicare bill? Clear, transparent, understandable, well laid out and logical.

This is why I weep: we are ALL entitled to this, here, in among the most affluent of countries.

A shame, and yes, a crime.

Go Joe and Kamala: get that public option so more of us can live in peace and confidence!
