OK, this is getting beyond stupid now. This guy(?) is a US Senator? Really? Some living, breathing humans actually gave this flow a majority of votes in an open election? In the US of A? Man, am I ever so very happy to be on the down side of this life. OK, so maybe 67 is not that old, but I'd not wish to be 25 today, no way, no how, not with this as our "leadership" class. America, what a country. When history writes about the decline and fall of the US of A, I sure hope like hell that this sort of thing gets good coverage as from my point of view, it is this type of clown who are causing the rapid decline of what once was a country that had great promise, now destined to third world status, soon. Again, makes me ever so happy to be on borrowed time and not young, just starting out. I DO have great compassion for the young people and in particular the little kids still in grade school and younger, what a mess we are leaving for them to deal with. So damn sad, and very, very sick. As I said many times, this nation HAD such great promise, once.Enough of my doom and gloom for today. Hope all is well with you and Tigger. I had a cat named Tigger back when I lived in SoCal.He weighed a whopping 23 pounds and was not fat. He and his brother loved to sleep on my knees. I'd wake up and wonder why my lower legs felt so numb, then see those two on my legs and I had to laugh. Loved them all.Old joke; what is the difference between cats and dogs? Yell at a dog and the dog will look sad, try to hide and look at you as if to say, I promise to not do that again. Yell at a cat, and IF the cat acknowledges you, look at you as if to say, NO way are you talking to ME in that tone of voice.Have a great week.
More than just promise -- this country has the so much wealth King Midas is a piker in comparison. But, in their zeal to prove...god knows what, they're going to push every nickel to the fat cats, while pushing everyone else off the cliff. Earlier I saw this quote from Lyndon Johnson, and...not an exact match, but a pretty good fit"If you can convince the lowest white man he's better than the best colored man, he won't notice you're picking his pocket. Hell, give him somebody to look down on, and he'll empty his pockets for you."And that's more or less what they're doing. Not just the racist part, but everyone who's not part of their little clique...and that's where shitbirds like Tillis rack up votes. Small-minded, mean-spirited morons who want everyone to be as dumb and narrow as they are. Yeah, I'm getting old myself...and am likewise glad I'm not just starting out. Kids these days -- and young adults -- have a tough row to hoe...Tiggs is good. He's actually rather juvenile in his behavior, so if I yell at him, he gets a little scared. But I rarely yell (and certainly don't hit him). He's good, just...like kittens, he's a bundle of energy, and gets upset when his aging caregiver runs out of steam.Take it easy.
