wow, you really want her to go on a work trip (that can easily be postponed one week) after she has told you that the only other adult in the house will be away at a conference (that can't be rescheduled) at the same time? This means leaving the 16 year old home alone with no adult supervision except his 18 year old brother for an entire week.  Really?

Some cabinet picks have raised an eyebrow.  My question to myself on these is, is he putting a leash on them or turning them lose.  I do hope the former.  Have to wait and see.  And that is what I will do.

that's too bad   {#Hug}



the system has conditioned and convinced people (most of them good folks) to suspend logic and reason and vote along party/tribal lines because that's the only path to victory

winning is everything

are you a hatfield or a mccoy?

holding up two super shitty candidates and then getting upset when the results come in

because selective political moralizing

pinker has something to say here
