Despite Satchel Page's wise advice sometimes you need to look back to see where you're going- I took a look two years ago:viewtopic.php?f=1&t=132803&start=195
It's a pity the graphics from the older version of the board don't work anymore- you can cut & paste the addies but I suspect few casual lookers bother. One of my favorite pictures of Emily- the text is at the link- is this one:
There's a lot of loss and longing back then... but even so “my life is moving onward,” even then. The flow of time pins Emmy inexorably to that point of death and mine? Moved on.
I've put off running errands so I can do a “great circle run” and do them all at once and I think I'll treat myself to another Chinese takeout. I have really been living extra-frugally recently. Still, I reckon I need to bite the bullet and start that application for social security disability. I dread the idea. And I well may be rejected. And well may appeal if so. But I need to do it while Zer0 is still in office and the process is being used to bribe people. They are more lax than they have ever been, which is in my favor. Might as well use it.
If Chick-fil-A has any stickers I am going to get two and put them on truck & car. This whole affair has at least the possibility & potential for being “a thing profound.” A game changer.
You do know why the Tea Party is so studiously belittled, smeared, ignored, and slandered by both- I say & note- both parties, the MF'ing Media, and others?
They fear us- we are a bottom up, leaderless resistance and a threat to their status quo. A status quo they are all fat, dumb, & happy with.
The “chicken disses the hat” has that potential. I don't think I'm alone- I've always had a live & let live attitude but I do not like being bullied into silence or told I can't speak freely.
And all the Ghey Jive aside, it's a free speech issue. And a bully issue. And a PC thought police issue. And I'm tired of getting and taking their BS. Most of it is “looka Me!” toddler-like nonsense to start with. Like their stupid, fizzling “kiss-in.” I wish they'd been fool enough to do more of that because it is a perfect illustration of everything wrong with these slimy, noisy “activists” and their GD precious “issues.”
I laugh at their “issues”- get a life and quit annoying people. You got the equal treatment you said you wanted- don't push it further or you will get blowback. It's already started.
