About Me

Staunch advocate for voting rights. I couldn't take it any longer and have joined 3 public boards within the last week to add my voice to the quest for a voting rights. Lifetime Democrat. Retired Federal medical researcher.

For my Maryland voting friends. The MD-APPLE-BALLOT can be found at the link below.

All you need to know about voting Nov. 8

When Miracle Whip hit $8/qt. (today at my Giant grocery store) it's time to make some dietary

changes. No more potato salad and more sandwiches made the old fashioned way with butter or olive oil...or plain bread (which is high enough). I'm eating less of the stuff I loved and feeling much better. Feeling really good at 80 and learning to live without a lot of stuff and be very happy about it. One thing good that came out of the Pandemic.

The country is headed in the wrong direction BECAUSE OF TRUMP AND THE MAGA REPUBLICANS!

Taking orders for bumper stickers and posters and ads.

Just sayin' here: I deactivated Twitter, signed up with the Guardian and donated. Refuse to pay

US media to read their bothsiderism shit. I just will have to suffer not being able to see what is behind the US newspapers' paywall. That is all.

How does one cancel or deactivate their Twitter account?

My COVID and flu shots. Info.

I am 80, in fairly good health for my age. I have HBP (not really bad or out of control) and was diagnosed with 70% blockage in one heart vessel (diagnosed 12 years ago, just watched with meds no invasive procedure except the angiogram). Nothing special about ailments except I can't walk or run like I use to 20 years ago. Meds for BP (losartan and Lasix when needed.) Plenty of self-prescribed vitamins including D3, C, multi B, arginine, tart cherry (daily), occasional aspirin.

I had my flu shot and latest COVID shot yesterday at 1:20 PM. It is now 24 hrs later and I have nothing to report. No fever, no sore arm, no symptoms of anything except a little sleepy.

Asking those of you who have had both shots if I should expect more side affects and when? Both shots were given in the same arm and there wasn't even a swelling. I took two Tylenol upon arriving at home after the shots around 2:10 and one before bed around 11:20 PM. I drank my usual tart cherry mixed in ginger ale with my last Tylenol before bed. Everyone else in my family that had any of those shots was sick as hell from teens to on up. Just wondering if I am too relieved too soon.

Ok, so 60% of the voters think the country is going in the wrong direction. So do I.

It's going in the wrong direction because of the power that the GOP has and because of what the MAGAs continue to get away with. It's not because of the Dems or Biden. It's because of the Republicans that I feel this way. And I bet there are a lot of others who feel the same way. And we are going to take our disgust to the ballot box and vote straight Dem from top to bottom!

Fuck the polls the MSM keeps reporting out of context...

Obama is the MAN!! None other like him on the stump! that is all. nt

Can someone explain why the DNC is not giving more support to Tim Ryan in Ohio? nt

The media is treating the dastardly attack on Paul Pelosi like it's just routine break-in.

If this had happened to anyone of the GOP pols spouse it would on the news 24/7 as they gave a full bio-sketch of the spouse and the principle. Same reason, I guess, we never heard of all the threats against President Obama and family. Wasn't a law passed after protesters appeared outside Kavanaugh home?
