About Me

Bleeding heart liberal, in the mold of FDR, and damned proud of it! Retired, still doing web work and teaching. Still rescuing animals and finding, as well as giving, them warm, loving homes. My personal belief: all alive are precious; everything living on earth forms an interconnected network - much like a neural network. Most of us have forgotten, or never learned, how to tap into it. Of course, there are those that totally ignore the interconnectedness. Mostly Republicans/Libertarians (YMMV)

To all those with cats...

There are a lot of us dealing with the various peccadillos of our babies when it comes to food...

Sent the hubby to the store with a shopping list. On the list was "Fancy Feast Dry Cat Food." I just got off a 30 minute phone call with him, wherein we discussed 1/2 our brood being tired of the Filet mignon and the other half being "meh"... so then discussing the other two flavors they have, along with the various nutritional readouts.

Told hubby to get the small pkg of one, and medium of the other, and we'd see which they prefer without having to run to the store for a refill within the next couple of days (I'm feeding 10, plus a couple of neighborhooder's who share). Asked his opinion of the decision at which, being the guy, I guess, he came back with, "well... the little bag is 8.00 and the medium is (I didn't really hear). I just say, Ok, so..." He said, "Yea, I guess you're right... now, what about the chili beans for us tonight? 1 can or 2? I love it when I send my husband to the store!

My cats are on a -we need to shake up the food flavors around here- kick. It's gotten important enough one cat just stares daggers at my husband when he says "suppertime!" Another, runs and hides. Most run for the canned food. Those that are left are standing guard on my desk, eyeballing whatever I'm eating and wondering why I'm not feeding it to them!

Is it tied to the changing seasons, you think? Or do they know that cat food is disappearing from store shelves and they want to drive Mama bonkers a little bit more?!

After all this info coming out about the boxes Trump took off with

and now we found it took 8 months and a threat to get at least 15 of those boxes back to NARA (and I'm still a bit confused as to whether or not that's all of them), it's gotten me to stewing all evening on something. If Trump was so concerned that he tried to EAT the evidence, WHAT in the world is he trying to hide from us that we don't already know?

It can't be covid-related. Nothing he did there would be a knock-out surprise. We already know he knew from the start how deadly this disease was. He admitted it to Carl - warned him about it. We know he didn't do anything about it in the beginning because it hit the "blue" states and he was hoping it would just kill all his blue state enemies. We know about the purloined equipment, the vaccines going to his rich friends, the investments into the vaccine companies, etc., etc. We know he spent one whole year (election year) screaming about a stolen election, prior to the election even being held, instead of working on Covid. So, I can't see there'd be anything else there that would be horrifying as to provoke a terrified behavior from *rump.

The only thing I keep coming back to is something he's done with a foreign leader...like Un or Orban or Putin. Maybe he actually sold them one of our states, or a monument or two, to pay off a debt? We already know he let a killer waltz in and murder an American citizen reporter. What could be more shocking than that?

Remember, someone (and my dwindling memory cells won't recall who) told us when the truth came out about Trump we'd be knocked down shocked. I keep remembering that, as well.

Who knows... remember how concentrated they were on the Dominion voting machines. Meanwhile, they let the EPIS machines skate by without a word, while we know they had proven problems from years ago. Maybe THEY actually rigged the election to THEIR benefit, but we so overwhelmed them with votes, not even those voting machines could keep up? Maybe that's why they're so adamant on voter fraud. Since they never make an accusation that they've not already done themselves...!

I'm not trying to start a conspiracy or anything... but does anyone else have this same itchiness inside about what else they're gonna find? And whether or not we'll be told? To paraphrase Jamie Raskin (since I can't remember it exactly) there has to be a reckoning for accountability's sake.

Anybody else thinking there's something much bigger out there to discover? Or is Trump just so demented that everything he does looks like a conspiracy?

Love and the Constitution

For those of us who missed it the first time around, I just saw where MSNBC is running it again tonight at 9pm and at midnight (CST).

Thank you!

To whomever gifted me the heart today, thank you so much! I made my very first trip ever to a food bank today, and was feeling kinda down afterwards. I logged on to DU once I got back home, and seeing the gift of your heart left my heart (and mine) a little lighter. We can't always know the impact of our actions on another, but I wanted you to know how you impacted mine.

I learned the young neighbor of my daughter had fallen on really hard times and had run completely out of cat food. So I split the bag of cat food I had with her, which ought to last her at least two weeks, and passed on one of my babies' laser pointers so they could play with the cat "in style." Thanks to you, you gave two women a brief respite from worry and even, dare I say, a bit of "shame." You lifted my heart, and I paid it forward, in the only way as best I could.
