Alive & Kickin' [View all]

Thanks to everyone who has asked about my health and wellbeing. I have been dealing with some health issues of late, and decided that a bit of a vacation from politics might be in order.

I still check into DU every day, but have limited my time here and on other political sites so as not to threaten my mental/emotional stability. One can only listen to so much insanity spewing from the MAGAts - and I hit my personal limit a while back.

I firmly believe that we as a nation will be all right, that common sense and common decency will prevail in the end. I'm just really tired of listening to the bullshit between now and then - the inanity, the insanity, the lies, the cries, the whimpering, the hyperbole, the hypocrisy, the martyrdom, the persecution, the victimhood, the yada-yada-yada entreaties of those who believe that Joe Biden is
a body-double because the 'real Biden' was executed years ago.

I don't think I'm alone when I say I just can't]/i]. I just can't pretend that obvious idiots have a functioning brain.
