Holy Crap! It worked. They have me thinking like a Republican!

As I was reading about the unbelievable damage the AHCA will do to this country: millions without insurance, hospitals and nursing homes closing, people losing jobs, tens of thousands of bankruptcies, and the total elimination of the middle class, a thought entered my head.

It was I'll be able to afford medical treatment for myself and my son, no matter what. I'll have the money unless the entire banking system collapses or a law is passed that single females can't have money and property.

That's how Republicans think....only have to care about oneself, no one else matters.

I ask forgiveness.

In recent days, Trump repeatedly has accused Qatar of funding extremists amid an effort by several Arab nations led by Saudi Arabia to isolate the peninsular nation.

He tweeted in March 2015 that the Trump Organization planned a hotel in Doha, alongside ones in Saudi Arabia, well as in Abu Dhabi and Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

Trump also praised Qatar during his presidential campaign, in which he lauded Doha's new international airport.

Don't know where else to ask this question. Last spring a whitetail

doe had twin fawns in my neighborhood (in the center of town) and I thought one was male and the other female. I named them Bert and Nan. I saw them with their mother almost daily through November. I have been feeding deer at my house for a couple of years

We'll, this spring there's been a doe and a guy with budding antlers coming to eat together.

Is it common for siblings to remain together? Could they be my Bobbsey twins?

My sister committed suicide today. I'm the one who.found her and

called 911. She has been depressed since her husband died 3 years ago today. I now have only my son and granddaughter as my family.

I've never had to deal directly with a death before. Right now I'm angry that she couldn't move forward with living.

I had thought we'd travel together and enjoy our senior years. She was 70 and I'm 68.

Since you changed to HTTPS, I can't see photos in the photography

group nor the Sunday LOLcats post on my phone app. When I went to the Play Store to see if there was a new update or version of DU, I can't find anything from Democratic Underground.com.

I can't remember if I got my app there or not (I'm old). Need help.
