Sometimes you just gotta vent

It's gotten to the point that I'm not able to speak to my elderly parents about anything except family any longer. My Dad is PARKED in front of the television, Fux News blaring their propaganda, which of course, he believes every utterance, no matter how ridiculous (Windmill Cancer anyone?)

My Mom is PARKED in front of her computer, posting some of the MOST HATEFUL stuff (to the point that one of her grandson's BLOCKED her) about practically anyone that is not a Republican. She even asked at one point "Why did Grandson #2 block me on FB?" My response was 'have you ever thought to look at your hateful FB posts?'. Of course, no response from either.

Since I'm the only of the 3 'kids' (we're all AARP eligible now) that lives in same State as parents, it's literally up to me to be certain that Mom and Dad have what's needed and required. Yes, they are mobile, yes, they are able to do for themselves, but at times, they do require an extra helping hand. I don't mind, they did same for me and my siblings throughout our lives.

Frustrating to see them get brainwashed by the hatred and stupidity in our Nation at this day and time. Dad has even gone so far to BUY A GUN! As kids, we were NEVER allowed even have a TOY GUN!

I just don't know what to do with these two. I keep my mouth shut, politics are completely off the discussion list. But at times, I almost feel like I just want to start stating FACTS and shut them down.

Anyone else in same situation? Some days it's just worse than others, and today I just had to vent.

Not certain if this belongs here

Can I start a Poll on DU

Or is that even allowed? I've tried to search, unable to determine.

Sealed Indictments

I can remember reading in the past few months, Mueller submitting several Sealed Indictments. The article even contained the Sealed Indictments numbers.

With all of the hoopla of the Barr Summary, seems that those Sealed Indictments are no longer in play?

Unsealed Indictments

If I remember correctly, there are still quite a few Unsealed Indictments that Mueller has pending. I'm guessing, if correct, there will still at least a few more Indictments?

Pat Metheny - Last Train Home

I've enjoyed Pat Metheny Group since High School (Dad was a music major, we learned there' more out there than rock-n-roll). Last Train Home has always been one of my favorites. Had the pleasure seeing Pat Metheny Group perform live in my area many years ago.

Anyone else appreciate Pat Metheny Group?

Has anyone else?

Recently, I decided to tempt fate, and see how long I could go without Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, or any of my many Social Media Accounts.

Especially after seeing News Reports of the Vaxer kid who stated that his 'Mom gets all of her news from Facebook'. I'd already ditched by that point, but glad to know that maybe I've done the right thing.

Anyone else ditched Social Media?

First ever

Even though every single GOP member voted against HR-1, one GOP'r used his moment to recognize this fact.

Nicknames for 45?

No idea if this has been done before, but love to know what nicknames others here in DU have for that disgusting orange turd illegally occupying 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue
