LOLGOP on twitter just quoted this

and i love it

i'm so pissed at republicans right now i could puke.

i have insurance through my employer. millions of people do not. it's not just that they'd sell away the good health of their constituents for a few more bucks in their pockets. it's this fucking drama, this fear, that they have put us all through in their craven quest to undo anything that was accomplished during the past administration. it is so wrong. the way McConnell ran this show is so wrong.

fuck them. i fucking HATE republicans. they are a blight and a malignancy and a curse on this country, and may they lose so badly in 2018 that they disappear.

question about twitter

trump called Adam Schiff "sleazy" on twitter and i replied, "sleazy is a step up for you Mr pussy grabber," but now i can't find my tweet. is it possible it was deleted but i wasn't notified?

even though the president can say it, i suppose the word "pussy" may violate twitter TOS...but i don't know. thanks to anyone who's more experienced on twitter!

19 July 2017 (16th anniversary of my daughter's death btw) would be a good day for a demonstration or a march. the whole thing is so maddening. the russians stole the election for this president and he's going to try and make sure less people vote forever...

okay so i made the calls today

Thom Tillis got through immediately on the DC line to Joey. Richard Burr had to call the 336 number but again i spoke with a human.

to me that means not enough people are calling. please, flex your citizen muscles and get on the phone to your senators.

watching the arrests of the disabled people outside the office of the most venal disgusting senator of them all made me cry. really cry. and i'm at work.
