About Me

I stand on the sand, and I'm rocking grief to sleep in my arms.

Happy Mothers Day

Love and peace to us all.

Has anyone managed to get their 2nd bivalent booster?

I got as far as making the appointment on the CVS website after completing a questionnaire and being told I was eligible for the shot, then showing up at the appointed time, where I was told they could not give me the shot.

the guy said they have to answer to more agencies than just the CDC and don't have authorization to give me the booster. I said your website specifically told me you could and gave me an appointment for it. He said I know. We can't.

Back home frustrated.

changed OP title for clarity

i just found out

that the shooter(s) in Dadeville is still outstanding.

the press conference yesterday was nothing but a no-info circle jerk. they could have at least urged witnesses and people with video to come forward. they could have at least mentioned that they had no suspect!!

fuck. they need help with this investigation. A town of 3,000 in AL is not going to have a police force that has the skill to pursue this. They apparently already had no actual perception of the purpose of a press conference.

figured i'd be better off sharing this here.

it's a video, but it's not political, it's my grandson!

So watching a CNN video on youtube

and I want to be sure I have this straight. They expelled the 2 young Black men, and let the white woman stay?

Democrat switches parties, giving GOP veto-proof majority in NC House

Source: WRAL

North Carolina Rep. Tricia Cotham, who won election to a deep-blue Charlotte-area seat as a Democrat just five months ago, changed parties Tuesday — an extraordinary move that gives Republicans more power to override gubernatorial vetoes in the state House and push their agenda through the legislative process.

The move further reduces Democratic Gov. Roy Cooper’s power to shape state law during his final year-plus in office. Cooper has spent the past four years able to veto controversial GOP-backed bills; Republicans lost their veto-proof majority in the 2018 “Blue Wave” elections. But the 2022 midterms went in the GOP’s favor, giving Republicans a supermajority in the Senate and leaving them just one seat short in the House — a seat Cotham now appears to be handing to the GOP.

NC slides further down the rabbit hole of permanent republican rule with all that implies: misery for women, POC, LGBTQ, poverty for the many. on and on.

i don't know enough to comment but feel as if she's either been bought, or this was always the plan. Would love to know what others think of this.

he should be in contempt already. MSNBC clip

gawd this is so satisfying.

working and watching the Meidas Touch live screen on youtube. I watched about 9 minutes of MSNBC and then they kicked me off.

back when he was the worst president in the history of the USA, i was active on twitter and often when he tweeted some fascist hateful bullshit, denying the crimes he had clearly committed, I'd tweet back at him, "Just because you've always gotten away with it does not mean you always will."

he didn't believe that. at times I didn't believe that and it grieved me something fierce.

motherfucker. it's happening.

Question.

can the judge put a gag order in place tomorrow? Because trump is going to do his level best to get some people killed otherwise. Another perk of a gag order is that it very well may lead to him being found in contempt. many times. possibly even jailed.

i'm hoping the prosecution will move for this and come with bunches of evidence, his media posts, the picture of him threatening the prosecutor with a baseball bat, "death and destruction," etc

there has to be some way to convince the would be king that he is not going to be king. that he is facing criminal charges and needs to begin behaving accordingly.
