He is not worth your tears.

Better to emotionally divorce yourself from current American politics for the time being.
Enough current events will seep through so that you'll have an overview of what's going on.

I'm watching a lot of weather lately. Also,

The Price is Right and Family Feud, and Antiques Roadshow.
PBS has some pretty good alternatives at night.

The Democrats need to colonize the low population states which are over-represented

in the electoral college.
A few thousand Democratic voters in those states - Wyoming, North Dakota, etc. - could turn the tide for the Democrats in future elections.

If you can't change the rules, make the rules work for you, i. e., Democrats.

Reminds me of the time in the gynocologist's office, body exposed,

the female doctor asked "How did you get this?", referring to a large bruise on my stomach of which I was unaware.
I believe she suspected I might be the subject of abuse.
I told her I knew nothing about it, and bruised very easily.

We learn to cope, to problem-solve our situations.

Long-sleeve clothing is your friend. The blood-thinners we take, even low-dose aspirin, causes us to bruise more easily. - a trade-off for clot-prevention.

Canes prevent falls, though they take up one of your free hands, so maybe not necessary inside the house, but can be a big help outside where terrain is uneven and not so soft. (I haven't fallen yet, but wary, as sometimes balance is not the greatest.)

Grabbers are wonderful tools, for picking up newspapers outside, and many items that drop inside. Treat yourself to more than one and keep them in places where they are convenient when needed.

When I enter a room, I do a quick scan and look for the highest seating; low chairs and sofas are too hard to get out of, or too embarrassing to struggle from, especially when others are present.

I'm sure others can add hints that can remind us of other ways to cope.

For better or worse - I remember this song the first time it came around. nt

As young kids, we thought it was very funny.
