the problem isn't us or them...it is all of us

We bitch about them...they bitch about us...we call them fascists and they call us commies.

Do we ever speak to each other?

Maybe if we get out of our little internet comfort zones and actually talk to each other we could get somewhere?

I dont believe they want things much different than we do but the powers that be have manipulated both sides so much we spend all our time fighting each other instead of fighting the people who are really screwing us over.

Let's start talking to each other...THAT will scare the hell out of the 1%

why are people so judgemental?

Tonight we hosted my lesbian niece and her girlfriend...with my gay son and his boyfriend......and we had so much fun.

We laughed...we talked....we sang and danced,,,,we had so much fun.

We downed three bottles of yeager and a half of grey goose...we did yeager bombs and every drink you can think of.......we had SO MUCH fun...we danced to beyonce and sang along to Bon Jovi and everything in between....we HAD A BALL!!!

Why are people so judgemental?

to whistler162 a heartfelt apology

yesterday I was hugely stressed over my dog but that was no excuse to lash out blindly at you.
I took things way out of context and treated you like shit.

I wish to offer you a heartfelt apology...I was an ass and being stressed over my furbaby is no excuse for how I acted

so the wifes new pup has epilepsy...the medicine does....wild things to her

first off I never want to make fun of a sick dog....but DAYUM.
We have had her about two months and she was having on bad days four and five seizures.The vet put her on anti seizure and all was good until last night.
Now keep in mind she is the smallest dog I have ever seen....she is half teacup pom and half teacup maltese...when we got her at eight weeks we were still weighing her in ounces.

She has always had seizures and we have figured out she has epilepsy but it was controlled until last night when she had two seizures.We called the vet this morning and he said to double up her anti seizure meds.
Keep in mind she was so small they had to figure out her meds at first and took a small dog anti seizure med and cut it into 8 pieces.

When I got home after work she was due so I gave her a double dose....OMG

She's like a cokehead on a binge.....walking laps and muttering to herself...she took Charlies favorite squeeky toy and slung it at him as she walked past....she is wound up to about twelve right now.

Is this normal for anti siezure meds on a dog?

gotta love the Percy harvin/Golden Tate drama

Golden Tate leaves a Seattle team who coddle their new primadona receiver and ends up proving he is an elite player.
Seattle has their new shiny toy blow up in their face and now they have neither receiver.

Good move Lions !!!!!

kids are diebetic and obese?..I wonder why

There is no mystery about why so many kids are obese and sick these days....they don't ever exercise.

I am trapped behind a schoolbus usually about twice a week coming home from work and what I see are fat kids being pampered by their equally fat parents.Sorry but that's how it is.

I see kids who live 100 yards from the road who can't walk to the house...their parents have to pick them up.Even then they act like walking 50 feet to the car is some sort of torture
I see massively overweight kids who get picked up by their parents who are seen reaching for the food and pop before the car even pulls out.

WE are to blame for our kids being fat
