Neil Diamond - America

ok - I've always considered him a bit cheesy lol - but the other day I heard this in a store and was reminded...
America feels broken - I dont think people still want to come here like they used to...



Far
We've been traveling far
Without a home
But not without a star
Free
Only want to be free
We huddle close
Hang on to a dream

On the boats and on the planes
They're coming to America
Never looking back again
They're coming to America

Home, don't it seem so far away
Oh, we're traveling light today
In the eye of the storm
In the eye of the storm

Home, to a new and a shiny place
Make our bed, and we'll say our grace
Freedom's light burning warm
Freedom's light burning warm

Everywhere around the world
They're coming to America
Every time that flag's unfurled
They're coming to America

Got a dream to take them there
They're coming to America
Got a dream they've come to share
They're coming to America

They're coming to America
They're coming to America
They're coming to America
They're coming to America
Today, today, today, today, today

My country 'tis of thee
Today
Sweet land of liberty
Today
Of thee I sing
Today
Of thee I sing
Today

Christmas occurances and ponderings...

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....

a friend just had to flee for his life....from Idaho

Two years ago a friend and his girlfriend and new baby, moved to Hayden, Idaho to be near her family, so she had support while he underwent cancer treatment....

He just moved back...without them. He's Puerto Rican...

He said when the first moved there it wasnt quite as bad but once Trump got elected...they went nuts.... He said every time he went and public someone made a comment about his race, he said a couple in a store, all decked out in camouflage walked up as he was pushing his baby and said 'oh what a cute beaner baby'

Said his car was spit on every day....he couldn't make any friends because their 'reputation' would be ruined if they were his friend....his girlfriend's family told him he 'didnt fit the image' for the family....it actually broke them up for 9 months, after which the mother told her daughter '..well, now that I got rid of him...'

He said he was certain that if he stayed there, he would have been hung.

So he left...he will set up a place here and bring them home...

Trump's America..... festering like flesh eating bacteria in Idaho.....

Wtf....seriously....this shit is so obviously wrong...

hes gonna pardon everyone....

this is what makes me sick - that at the end of it all - after destroying america and handing us to an enemy - he walks away from it all - they all do....

WASHINGTON — Lawyers for Donald Trump, spurred by the president’s own inquiries, are exploring his power to grant pardons — to aides, family and himself — as a means of undermining special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election, The Washington Post reports.

The Post, citing an unnamed source familiar with the queries, said the president himself had asked advisers about the constitutional power, although another source noted that Trump sought only to further his understanding of the privilege. Trump’s lawyer John Dowd called the claims “nonsense.”

Trump’s lawyers are also looking into Mueller’s potential conflicts of interests, perhaps as a way of removing him from the Justice Department’s investigation, according to a Post article that cited several of Trump’s legal advisers.

Also on Thursday, various outlets reported Trump’s longtime personal attorney and lead counsel on the Russia investigation, Marc Kasowitz, would be stepping into a smaller role. Kasowitz made headlines last week after he threatened a stranger in a string of profane emails, saying things like “watch your back, bitch,” and “I’m on you.”

just ran a dungeon in ESO with a tank named Donald Putin lol

Greatest name ever lol

I feel like Trump may not return from his trip

I could imagine they shuffled him off to avoid the inevitable - its a 9 day trip if i recall correctly - SO much will be revealed in 9 days - I can see him getting into a country like...hmm...russia....then resigning....living out his happy days over there in exile.....

you know some of them have at least though of it....lol
