GOP hate conservatives and they hate you

I've been warning for years that the GOP are morally bankrupt and out to "Fuck America, First!"

If you're a real conservative, and not merely some "addled-brained idiot drinking the GOP/Fox/Oligarch Kool-Aid and congratulating yourself for at least not being a libtard," then you accept this truth now.

"But, but, Clinton!..." Fuck you. Clinton ain't President. Clinton is irrelevant. 

"But, but the Democrats!..." Fuck you. The GOP control the White House, the House and the Senate. The GOP - _because they blocked Obama's SCOTUS appointment_ - control the SCOTUS. 

For the slow learners in the room, that means the GOP control the entire fucking federal government. Fuck you, and your fucking hypocritical "GOP Family Values." Jesus thinks GOP supporters are a bunch of assholes, too.

The GOP abandoned YOU decades ago. Wake up and fight them tooth and nail, because they're exploiting you today, and going to exploit you even harder tomorrow.

Be happy first, rich second

Too many people confuse money with happiness, and when they run into money problems, they become unhappy, and blame everyone around them.

Money can't buy happiness; it can merely buy opportunities to be happy in different ways.

This isn't intended to be a  "brilliant psychobabble" post. I mean, it's a frickin' meme, but it is meant to maybe get you to think about the meme a bit differently, and maybe with that slightly altered perspective, the meme - and the message - will take on new value.

Healthcare - important things to know

Medicare is a federal program that provides health coverage if you are 65 and older or have a severe disability, no matter your income.

Medicaid is a state and federal program that provides health coverage if you have a very low income.

Unless you have a Republican Governor, then "Fuck you."

Empathy: because it could be me

A man on the street asked for a dollar.

"I got to get home," I thought, and rushed past him.

"I have a home to go to," I thought.

I went back and gave him what little cash I had.

Empathy transcends dogma, theology, ideology. Having empathy means being human.

How important is a fast reply to text messages?

My retort to this blog posting. And I'll be frank, this came out of a fight I just had with a friend who got pissy that someone hadn't responded to every single text for 12 hours.  Okay, it was just a handful, but 12 hours later, the reply came back, failed to address every single text, and it had been twelve  hours, because "No one waits 12 hours to reply to text!"  Um, yeah, for example, *I* do. Except with friends that I know have serious damage - and get pissy - about not getting fast replies. 

So, the linked post, ...

On the one hand, amusing. On the other hand, I'm not going to be a slave to the gadget in my pocket. I'm not going to sacrifice my life for async experiences, where huge chunks of time are wasted waiting for a response. If it's important, CALL ME. At least, then I have a full bandwidth conversation, in real-time, instead of splitting my focus with having to type at 1/8 the speed I can talk constantly interrupting whatever is going on around me, for example playdate with my niece or nephew at the park.

That means, if it takes me days, or never, to reply to your text message, that I'm not a fan of text messages, and it has nothing to do with how much I care about you. Text messages are convenient for async leave-me-a-message-and-I-will-reply.

Text messages are not "real-time," in any sense of the phrase. Text messages are time wasters on a scale that Faceborg can't hope to compete.

So, "what it actually means"? Not a damn thing, unless you want to measure servitude to a gadget, or servitude to people who can't be bothered to call you, or drive to meet you somewhere.
