Christmas occurances and ponderings... [View all]

So many weird things have happened in the last few days that have been...thought provoking, to say the least....

First...encounter with a Trump voter:
Hubby texts his brother...'hey you should come visit sometime'
Brother(combat veteran, now officer) responds : "why the fuck would I visit Seattle where there's tranny protestors and women with pussy hats'
Hubby responds 'so much hate in your heart that there's no room for your brother?' (no reply so far)

Second.... encounter with the 1%
Hubby had been approached by a wealthy business owner about opening up a shop....hubby brought this rich guy to a shop that's closing to buy out all their unsold inventory...rich guy and old shop owner and negotiating a quarter million dollar purchase...rich guy doesn't even flinch at these kind of numbers....then he and hubby grab coffee at McDonald's after....rich guy starts browsing for coupons for freaking McDonald's coffee.....wtf....it's like they are just wired differently...

Third....encounter with the senior health system (Medicaid)
My mom nearly died on December 3...(again) she's been transferred from facility to facility as her recovery improved.....yesterday, she was sent to a skilled nursing facility in Tacoma....I went to see her and was horrified....dark, gloomy....and the smell was horriffic....it was like I was walking in a place that was for the not quite living.... And I had to leave my mom there....

I'm left feeling like what has America become....

So this is Christmas....
