About Me

I was a member since the beginning of DU, but drifted away. During Trump, I decided to come back to the community of like-minded people for support and hope. In my last iteration here, I hit 10,000 posts, but will start again!

Once Upon a Time ... In Hollywood

I'm obsessed with this movie. Anyone else have opinions, thoughts etc on it? I was a small kid in 1969, and a true crime aficionado

I've gotta stop being afraid

fear stalks me. I'm worried I'll give myself a heart attack. I'm going to ask for FMLA at the start of June. I'm scared to ask, though I've done so before. Fear, fear, fear.

I hope everyone is doing okay!

Anyone have some recipes?

arm hurts a lot. I'm glad to have gotten it, though

Monsters and Mysteries in America

it's a marathon today on Destination America Channel. I love this corny show. The re-enactments are a bit cheesy, and I'm a skeptic, but I really enjoy these paranormal tales. I love a rainy day off watching a marathon!

Biden's chance to save the Everglades

Biden's Chance to Save the Everglades
With passage of the Covid-19 relief bill behind it, the Biden administration will soon offer its encore, one or more big proposals reflecting President Biden’s multitrillion-dollar Build Back Better, which will enlarge government’s role in the American economy. Together, these budget requests will be bigger in dollar terms than the relief bill, will address daunting problems like infrastructure and climate change — and, inevitably, will revive the partisan divide that plagues Washington.

There is, however, one environmentally important project that boasts remarkable bipartisan agreement and has important climate implications. It may be the most ambitious ecosystem recovery project ever, not just in the United States but anywhere, and it has the added virtue of being an act of atonement for past government failures.

scheme aimed at replicating as nearly as possible the historical flows of fresh water from Lake Okeechobee — flows that a pioneer advocate named Marjory Stoneman Douglas called the River of Grass — that once made South Florida a biological wonderland. These flows slowed to trickle starting in the late 1940s when Congress ordered up a massive flood control project to protect Florida’s booming cities, which looked like a smart idea at the time.

Nyt Biden poised to raise taxes on business and the rich

WASHINGTON — Democrats have spent the last several years clamoring to raise taxes on corporations and the rich, seeing that as a necessary antidote to widening economic inequality and a rebuke of President Donald J. Trump’s signature tax cuts.

Now, under President Biden, they have a shot at ushering in the largest federal tax increase since 1942. It could help pay for a host of spending programs that liberal economists predict would bolster the economy’s performance and repair a tax code that Democrats say encourages wealthy people to hoard assets and big companies to ship jobs and book profits overseas.

The question is whether congressional Democrats and the White House can agree on how sharply taxes should rise and who, exactly, should pay the bill. They widely share the goal of reversing many of Mr. Trump’s tax cuts from 2017, and of making the wealthy and big businesses pay more. But they do not yet agree on the details — and because Republicans are unlikely to support their efforts, they have no room for error in a closely divided Senate.

Huge line at CVS for Covid shot Edit got a free donut

Mr. XanaDUer2 snagged an appointment somehow. Good to see all ages getting their shots. Overhearing the pharmacist telling phone callers staff don't make appointments. I'm just worried there are people not computer friendly having a hard time
