Voting Advice for Young Americans

WOMEN AND MINORITIES … I care 0% about what anyone claims to stand for anymore… I just want all the old white men OUT of power, out of government, out of judgeships, out of breath!

There’s no need to research candidates, discuss with friends, use a mobile shout out or anything else. Google them… if they’re female and/or non-white, fill in the fucking oval on your ballot.

White men have destroyed this #CUNTry and this earth. There is no choice that you can make that could be worse than voting for another white man.

This obviously excludes Biden who should be the last white man that y’all ever vote for. Let’s face it, his VP will likely run the show sooner than later. His VP will probably be a woman, may be a black woman… so vote Biden in the general election and then never, ever vote for a white man ever again.

Finally, once the general election is over and Biden is POTUS, fill out a new voter registration form and choose “No Party Affiliation”. Encourage everyone you know to do the same. Fuck this electoral college and two party system. What a god-damned scam.


Covid-19 According to Trump

January 22, 2020

Are you worried about a pandemic at this point?
No, not at all, we have it totally under control. It’s one person coming in from China and we have it under control and it’s gonna be just fine.”

January 31, 2020

How concerned are you?
Well, we pretty much shut it down…

February 10, 2020

A lot of people think that it goes away in April with the heat, as the heat comes in, typically, that will go away in April. We’re in great shape though.

February 27, 2020

It’s going to disappear, one day it’s like a miracle, it will disappear.

March 2, 2020

They’re gonna have vaccines I think relatively soon and they’re gonna have something that makes you better and that’s gonna actually take place, we think, even sooner, so it’s uhh, a lot of good things are happening.

March 4, 2020

A lot of people will have this and it’s very mild, they’ll get better very rapidly, they don’t even see a doctor, they don’t even call a doctor. We’ll have thousands, or hundreds of thousands of people that get better just by, you know, sitting around, and even going to work, some of them go to work.

March 6, 2020

As of right now and yesterday, anybody that needs a test, that’s the important thing, and the tests are all perfect, like the letter was perfect, the transcription was perfect, right, this was not as perfect as that, but pretty good.

March 6, 2020

Mr. President, what do you say to Americans who are concerned that you’re not taking this seriously enough? Some of your statements don’t match what your health experts are saying.
I say that’s CNN, fake news.

March 10, 2020

Be calm, it’s really working out, and a lot of good things are going to happen.

March 15, 2020

It’s something that we have tremendous control over.

March 16, 2020

On a scale of 1 to 10, how would you rate your response to this crisis?
I’d rate it a 10.

March 20, 2020

What do you say to Americans that are watching you right now who are scared?
I say that you’re a terrible reporter, that’s what I say.

March 24, 2020

Easter’s a very special day for me. Wouldn’t it be great to have all of the churches full? So I think Easter Sunday and you’ll have packed churches all over our country…

March 25, 2020

Because we’ve done one hell of a job, nobody’s done the job that we’ve done and it’s lucky that you have this group here right now for this problem, or you wouldn’t even have a country left.

There’s Nothing Funny About Covid-19

Fuck this title. I’m having a “I need humor day”. Since I’m the one that needs humor, it’s okay. If tomorrow comes and I’m in a no jokes allowed mood, then jokes won’t be okay.

I was curious about some things as they pertain to the Coronavirus so I went to Google. As I typed my first question, one of the auto-complete choices that popped up was:

Is it okay to share Chapstik…

So of course I tapped it to expand. I knew the answer but I wanted to indulge my curiosity about natural selection and such. So the complete question was….

Is it okay to share Chapstik with strangers on the subway in NYC during the Coronavirus Pandemic if you’ve already made out with them after sharing Disco Fries at a restaurant that was supposed to be take-out only?

You can’t make this stuff up, but I just did, because that’s where my imagination goes when I’m manic.

#socialdistancing : It’s not about you asshole.

Death by Suicide

I’m not a huge fan of worrying about how I phrase things. This is one of my many flaws but also one of my better qualities. I say it like it is. I keep it real. I don’t flower things up for the sake of someone’s feelings and I prefer to be spoken to the same way. I’m restrained in this group but those who know me, know that I can be crass but that it comes from a place of honesty, love and sometimes humor. I’m not saying it’s right or it’s a better way, it’s just my way.


Since losing my Dad to suicide in 2011, I’ve participated in support groups, seminars, sensitivity training and events. I’ve immersed myself in the suicide prevention community because I want to absorb as much as possible about the whys and more importantly, how to be more aware, spread some knowledge, help prevent suicides and help those that have survived the death of a loved one by suicide.

This leads me to the reason for this post. When a person dies by suicide, we have been programmed to say things like “He committed suicide” or “She killed herself”. These statements criminalize a death by suicide when in fact, the death was due to an illness. These statements put blame on the person that died and minimize the most important part of the situation which is that they were sick and suffering. Sensitivity training has been tough, but this is one of the take-aways of value. This particular part of the training hit home for me. Yes, I still screw up and phrase it the ‘old’ way but I genuinely try to be mindful of this whenever I’m discussing suicide.

To summarize, the word ‘committed’ aligns with crime and is no longer accepted among the suicide prevention community. The phrase “killed herself” (or himself) aligns with blame and is no longer appropriate in speaking about a person who died by suicide. Please share this info if you happen to be in a discussion about the loss of life by suicide.

Snake Oil Anyone?

  • Last night I found a truck online that I wanted my husband to buy… he’s needed a new truck for a decade… Frankenstein was definitely on his last legs. He didn’t think the truck that I found would be at the dealership.. thought it was a bait truck, but he really wanted it. He went out there expecting to be disappointed. He got to the dealership, test drove the truck, signed the papers and drove it home… home where I was looking for a car for Brian Jr… found one posted for only 40 minutes.. GEM! Messaged the seller, called her on the phone and arranged to see the car in an hour. When Bri got home, he grabbed Jr. and BACK OUT EAST to see the Honda… Brian Jr. bought the car. While they were on the way back from LI, I had already sold Bri’s old truck that he swore no-one would buy. I had people lined up in my messages to come see Frankenstein…. 1st guy to show had cash in hand and drove it away. Tomorrow I’ll sell Jr.’s old Honda (if he lets me). Oh… and I worked from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. and picked up Christopher in between. ON FIRE TODAY!

  • Colored Tiles (Scrabble Rant)

    Do those colored tiles really make your life better? They certainly don’t make your game any better. Bright pink tiles with light pink polka dots… bulbous and shiny. No wonder your words suck. PAY ATTENTION! This isn’t a game.

    Oh wait.

    Thank God.

    In keeping with the religion theme of late, I’d like to thank God for all of the beautiful things in the world… especially the woodpecker that now lives in my yard and gets up mad early in the morning to ruin my fucking life.

    If not for this beautiful creature, I wouldn’t have dark circles under my eyes, a day full of robust yawns, a huge Starbucks bill and a horrible attitude.

    Lord hear our prayer.


    My co-dependant dog.

    How endearing and pathetic that our dog lies outside the bathroom door whimpering while Bri showers. How can he not know that after 14 years Bri’s gonna come back out and cater to the dog’s every need? For fuck’s sake, he’s memorized every sound associated with a pre-food event that’s ever happened. If he’s out in the yard and you open a seven year old can of creamed corn, he’ll hobble up the stairs on his busted, old bones in hopes of slicing his tongue on the lid, if he can muster up enough oomph to knock the trash can over. As I finished this rant, Bri came out of the bathroom and said, “Where’s my Elvee?” Am I missing an emotion gene that I don’t find this the sweetest thing ever? Codependency is so annoying.
