    I’m Out of Empathy. I’m Out of Pity. I’m Out of Patience.
    Roy Moore is a lawless theocratic lunatic, and those who support him are destroying our democracy.

    SEP 27, 2017

    …And, no, when it comes to the people who voted for Moore, I don’t have to “respect their beliefs.” I don’t have to “understand where they’re coming from.” I don’t have to “see it from their side.” These people are preparing to make a lawless theocratic lunatic one of 100 United States Senators, and that means these people are about to inflict him and his medievalism on me, too. If you think that Roy Moore belongs in the Senate, then you are a half-bright goober whose understanding of American government and basic civics probably stops at the left side of your AM radio dial. You have no concept of the national interest and very little concept of your own, unless, as I suspect, you’ve made your own fears, and hating people and hawking loogies in all directions, the sum total of your involvement in self-government. You are killing democracy and you don’t know it or care. If you had any real Christian charity in your hearts, you’d keep Roy Moore in the locked ward of your local politics and not loose him on a nation that deserves so much better than him…

  3. Good news: Scientists have discovered a new species of giant rat

    Note yellow hair, orange skin, tiny paws.

  4. @Crank Bait: I suspect and fear that if they shaved the yellow hair there would be the numbers 666. Scary!

    I miss Toni — does anyone have an update? I left word on her cell phone voicemail. — THANKS!!

  5. @Kate Anne:

    Re Toni’s absence:

    Unfortunately, I suspect that she is doing another few days in the hospital.
    Or her computer has failed.
    Either way, not good. Only bad things keep her away from the keyboard.

  6. @Crank Bait: Thanks much — maybe I will luck out and Toni‘ll be in touch via phone before too long. But she does such a great job here and on FB. When I don’t see her FB stuff I go to her page. (I don’t check here enough.)

    Some good news is that my grandson Levi (soon to turn 1 year) enjoys BlueRootsRadio. Great background music too.

  7. I’m back from the Hospital. I did go to the hospital with Hip pain. And while there I got an A-Fib attack and was told the swelling in my legs is due to heart failure. So I am on new meds and wearing a heart monitor for 30 days and we’ll see what happens. Have to go to a slew of doctors visits in this next month. Full time job for me now is my health care. Also was ordered to take Physical Therapy. Sorry I didn’t have time to post here before.

  8. @toniD:

    The only upside I can come up with on short notice is this: You won’t have to sweep snow off of your car for next month’s doc appointments.

    Oh, and here’s one more: It would be wonderful to resolve the edema in your legs…despite the diagnosis that connects the symptom with your heart.

  9. @Crank Bait: Happy about no snow!

    I would like to keep my legs from swelling so the meds for that are welcome. Only problem with those meds are they are Diuretics and I spend a lot of my day in the bathroom.

  10. Republicans Now Blackmailing Congress to Stop Impeachment, Robert Mueller Causes Full Panic

    Donald Trump looks to be speeding down the path of impeachment faster by the day. I know it. You know it. Donald Trump knows it. Congress knows it. Most of America that isn’t completely blind knows it.

    The problem seems to be that while Congress, even the Republicans, mostly agree that Trump is unfit for office, there are a few high ranking members in the party that are threatening their colleagues over the impeachment talk.

    Scott Dworkin from The Democratic Coalition says a source on Capitol Hill has told him “Republican leaders warning GOP Members of Congress to not talk about a Trump impeachment ever-in any way—or else”


  11. @toniD: I had the month monitor twice. It was rather comforting [someone in Texas was looking out for me — at least one of my monitors was live and I think both] though an inconvenience at times. I am just glad that you are under good care. Please remember you health MUST come first — though I love seeing your posts again!! Hugs!!

  12. @toniD:

    Sorry to read of your continued health problems, hang in there.

    Please put your health needs at a higher priority than blog posting.

    If adding to the blog gives you enjoyment , as it does me, than it must be a healthy thing to do, however don’t over work yourself.

    The Vietnam War, Donald Trump and Racism 101

    By Connie Schultz 09/28/2017

    Before I started attending Kent State in the fall of 1975, I was a kid living in small-town Ashtabula, Ohio, in a county by the same name, which had lost 26 servicemen in the Vietnam War. Our state total was 3,094, ranking us fifth in casualties.

    I don’t remember seeing a single anti-war protest growing up that wasn’t framed by the console of our TV. We were a working-class town full of boys with no college deferments whose first flights would be to Vietnam. By the late 1960s, it seemed you couldn’t drive in any direction from our house without passing the home of a boy who had gone to Vietnam. My mother was on regular casserole duty in those years, delivering a warm dish to one of three types of gatherings: a send-off, a homecoming or a wake.

    Nobody in our house was going to protest the war. My parents would have seen that an unforgivable act of betrayal.

    When I was 12, Ohio National Guardsmen opened fire on a crowd of Kent State student protesters and passers-by. Four students died there on May 4, 1970, and nine others were
    wounded. Five years later, I was a freshman there.

    My parents never doubted that I would be safe, but . . .

    Thanks Jmach! I do enjoy posting.
    It’s also a good record of what’s been happening that I sometimes come back to reread or watch a video.

    Just think what the LV shooter could have done with silencers on his guns.
    When will the GOP/NRA stop their madness? It’s not about freedom, it’s about
    gun sales and gun paraphernalia.

    from 1200 feet with a knife, I will absolutely call for knife control. Until then,

    If the Democrats Don’t Learn This Lesson, They Deserve to Lose Forever
    Progressive candidates can win anywhere. Contest every race.

    OCT 4, 2017

    I’m reluctant to point this out, lest I blow the covert aspects of some good news, but it seems that, almost without anyone’s noticing, very progressive African-American candidates have been getting elected to be mayors in cities in the very deepest parts of the deep South. First, it was Chokwe Lumumba, an actual Socialist, who was elected mayor in Jackson in Mississippi Goddamn…


    Embattled GOP Rep. Tim Murphy to retire
    The Pennsylvania lawmaker, who opposes abortion rights, was reported to have suggested his mistress terminate a pregnancy.

    …”After discussions with my family and staff, I have come to the decision that I will not seek reelection to Congress at the end of my current term,” Murphy said in his statement. “I plan to spend my remaining months in office…

    …engaging in the sanctimonious douche-baggery that my constituents have come to expect from me.
