Have been a more conscientious shopper since tRump took office

Have foregone buying a tv, and Iíve passed on several pairs of shoes. Am wearing out old purses/bags. I like thrift store shopping.

I use vinegar, dish soap, and occasionally regular bleach as my primary cleaning agents around the house. Are cheap and Iím not buying as much from chemical companies. Was done with oven cleaner years ago - that shit is toxic awful. I could go on about big chem, but wonít.

Adopted using cloth napkins before he took office, and donít buy nearly as many paper towels. I donít bother folding them, bleh, no - I just shove them in a drawer.

Bought carbon offsets last year for a flight. And, am making efforts to drive less/purchase gas less often.

Itís as much a protest against tRump as it is about conserving in the face of global warming. I still buy stupid stuff, but less than I used to.

So, youíre not alone - is already happening in my household.

Prosecutors unlikely to charge Trump Org executives, sources say
By Erica Orden and Kara Scannell, CNN
Updated 7:17 PM ET, Fri July 12, 2019

(CNN)A federal investigation into whether Trump Organization executives violated campaign-finance laws appears to be wrapping up without charges being filed, according to people familiar with the matter.

For months, federal prosecutors in New York have examined whether company officials broke the law, including in their effort to reimburse Michael Cohen for hush-money payments he made to women alleging affairs with his former boss, President Donald Trump.
In recent weeks, however, their investigation has quieted, the people familiar with the inquiry said, and prosecutors now don't appear poised to charge any Trump Organization executives in the probe that stemmed from the case against Cohen.


Is a must watch.

I've really enjoyed ❤️ week

And would like to give all my heart-givers an extra . Had a nicer week just because you spent a moment on my behalf.

Has been good to hear from some of those who donít post as much as they used to ó am looking at you, Maeve 💙.

Iím so very fond of DU and DUers, itís not even funny. Except for when it is, and then, sometimes itís maddening, but I love it here all the same.

Fight for them to do this the right way: subscribe to a McClatchy paper

Right now. Today.

Hereís an example of why Iím a digital subscriber to the Miami Herald:

No signs, no gate, few guards: Are Mar-a-Lago intruders actually trespassing?
FEBRUARY 12, 2020 10:20 AM

The lack of security infrastructure at President Donald Trumpís Mar-a-Lago club seemingly contributed Wednesday to the exoneration of a Chinese woman accused of trespassing.

Lu Jing, 56, told the court Tuesday that she understood club security ďdidnít want me thereĒ after she went through the open front gate of the private, members-only club in Palm Beach on Dec. 18. She left, only to return to the presidentís primary residence through an un-gated service road accessible from South Ocean Boulevard. Prosecutors called Luís escapade into Mar-a-Lago a ďcalculated decision.Ē


Also, while on their site, I broke one of my rules and clicked on some banner ads (even though I donít want any cowboy boots - like ever again in my life).

Oh yeah, I've enjoyed seeking those handles

I remember from years ago or some frequent posters that maybe somehow landed in the doghouse just recently who I think should have more, and then thereís those who I might disagree with a lot of the time, but nonetheless make me think a little harder about some something. I have enjoyed the process, and I feel like I know personalities on DU better for it.

I received more hearts yesterday, and it really is a lovely boost. Iím still finding more folks to give hearts to this morning, and have already gone well over my original budget, but meh, itís worth it - is too much fun.

All that said, am glad hearts week is for a limited time, as I like the rather sublime just-another-voice quality that DU provides.

Happy Valentines DU ❤️

Get a DOJ.... trunks for bootlicking

Is good stuff, JHB. Still has me chuckling at the end of the day.

Well put.

Superbly concise.

Am journaling to comment more later, as I must go run around the snaggle-toothed cinder blocks at this time.

Better late than never

Thank you for all that you do.

I ❤️ my heart givers.

This is the first year Iíve really been able to experience the heart giving on DU, and it is pleasing to thank the voices I look to by showing them a little love. Am humbled that anyone on this site included me in such a gesture.

Iíve been sober for a little over four weeks, now, and is partly another way for to say thank you and love you to my favorite forum of all time.
