One of many reasons I reject Christianity...

https://www.rawstory.com/2020/03/watch-baptist-preacher-dismantles-meagachurch-leaders-boast-were-winning-during-coronavirus-crisis/

The preacher that got pissed off is upset because he believes the foundation of Christianity and God's purpose is for people to hold onto their faith even through their suffering. To me, this is sick. This is like staying in a marriage where you are abused, neglected, tormented, just because you're supposed to, just to prove you're worthy of existence. Screw that and screw any God who can't do better than that. Where is the comfort in such a religion? Such concepts provide a model for sick relationships. I reject this crap. GET THEE BEHIND ME!

Ok, did Rachel and Lawrence have a spat?

I’ve never seen them engage in such a terse and rapid hand off. “Thanks you, Rachel.” “Certainly.” And that was it! Wonder what that was about?

My book on Aging in Place is available on Amazon!

I don't know if I can post the title here. But it's by Lanore Dixon, COTA. I hope you will find it helpful for caregiving and taking care of yourself! Stay safe!

Trump is the most powerless president ever...

If you listen to the right wing media, that is. I found this infuriating article in my local paper.

Apparently Obama is the MOST powerful president ever because even though he left office more than 3 years ago, he is responsible for everything that goes wrong in the nation while Trump holds office. Trump, on the other hand, is the least powerful president because even though he's been in office more than 3 years now, Obama is still in control of everything.

As a matter of fact, Republican presidents of the last 30 years have been mighty impotent, according to the right.

Boomhauer!

James Carville on the Democratic primary...sounds exactly like Boomhauer from King of the Hill.
