Advice on a complex situation

Thankfully I am now able to work full time from home but I was told by my supervisor not to say anything because not everyone is able to work from home. Okay I am not going to rock the boat. I do have a co worker who I consider a friend who basically encourage me to take this job. This friend was working from home but lost the privilege being on social media during work hours. That person has to work from the office now. This past week all the days I would be at the office I have gotten text. Where are you? Are you sick? Are you working from home now?

I am looking for a better job but until I find something. I have a job. I like the work I am doing. We are worried if there is another lock down hubby will be laid off.

How do I deal with my friend's questions?

(Sorry errors I am on my tablet which has an autocorrect gremlin)

One of the dumbest things I heard today!

I thought Trump Bull crap was the worse today but this really took the cake for me.

co-worker: "I don't want to hear how Trump disrespected John Lewis when Jimmy Carter wasn't at the service either!"

Anyone want to talk Hamilton?

Spoilers in a way




For those who who have seen the play on Disney + or had the good fortune of seeing the live play. I know a lot of debate has been made of the Eliza Gasp/cry at the end of the play. I have heard a lot of the debate and have heard Lin Manuel Miranda as well as the actresses who have played Eliza talk about it. But I want to look at the moment before the gasp.

Was it Hamilton taking Eliza's hand and directing her to the audience? Or was Lin Breaking Character and guiding Eliza to see the actual audience?

My own crazy views is that it is 1 of 2 ideas.

The First It is Hamilton meeting Eliza in Heaven and showing her the Past Present and future and how her work would be a part of history.

Sometimes I watch it and I think it is Lin taking Eliza's hand and allowing her to see the future audience listening to Hamilton's story. Which is not only amazing but frightening moment for her.

Beware of Pence?

That is what my friend said to me and she may be right.

Paul Manafort hand-picked.

I thought Cheney was secretive ...Pence seems to have given the master class of stealth that Cheney took. Trump is the distraction for Pence and Putin.

She concern that Pence will somehow get the nomination at the convention or becomes the October surprise and Trump steps aside on the Ticket.

My Biden Dream Team

First--Sorry if I offend anyone and I'm sure I will get rake over the coals for my views.

2nd after 2016 I am not going to Jinx anything so I am saying IF Biden Wins

Susan Rice as VP and if Biden is thinking the way I am her primary job would be to help heal our allies relationship and let the world know Biden and she work Hand and Hand. I am probably going to be way off base with this so I also hope that she finds her way as Sec of State.

Kamala Harris will probably be VP Not that I am trying to disrespect her but I think Sec of State would be an awesome place for her and would give her a boost for future President.

Tammy Duckworth- Who else but a Veteran to run Veteran Affairs.

Andrew Como -FEMA. The way he handle Covid in New York bet job interview in my eyes.

Deb Haaland Sec of the Interior

Elizabeth Warren Sec of Treasury or Sec of Labor

Val Demings Sec of Homeland Security

Sally Yates A.G. if Kamala Harris is picked for V.P.

I know there are a lot more positions but that is my starting point.

You may now and tell me what an idiot I am.

Seriously we need to shut down the Republicans talking point that

Absentee ballots are okay and not fraud while mail in ballots are fraud.

I have heard this talking point and want someone to say that is crap. There is no difference.
