How refreshing

While having a manicure this morning and, yes, a rare pedicure, several young ladies came in to have their nails done for their prom.  As I watched them, all animated in conversation, I thought back to when I was their age.  My g-d, I never looked as good in high school as these kids do.  They were all slender, tanned, not a blemish on a face, gorgeous hair.  In shorts and tee shirts, they were all beautiful.

I had a chance to study their faces, their expressions, their body language, their voices.  These were young ladies, well-mannered, soft-spoken, easy to see that they all liked each other, respectful of those who provided the services they wanted and easily interacted with me during a short, humorous conversation.

I may not have looked as good way back then, but I do remember being soft-spoken, well-mannered, and respectful.  It was a good way to start my day.

It never stops......

Stuff like this makes me wish Republicans would just vanish from the face of the earth:

"Foster Children Would Be Allowed To Get Clothing Only From Second - hand Stores" - from the Michigan Messenger.  Like these kids don't already have self esteem issues.

The King of Michigan, Rick Snyder does away with your elected officials...martial law?  Poor Benton Harbor....your citizens have no rights, your votes mean nothing, you mean nothing.

The rug-headed D. Trump wouldn't recognize truth if it was right in front of his ugly face.  He exaggerates. Okay,  let's call it what it is:  he lies. And he won't run because that little item about financial disclosure.......... well, he's not going to produce anything about THAT!  For more on Trump, this is a great article:

Pending legislation in Michigan would make it a crime for teachers to even speak of striking?  Ah, freedom of speech?  The Constitution?  WTF???

Christine O'Donnell, that flake from Delaware, blames a computer for mistakes in her fundraising reports.  No matter that a HUMAN has to hit the was the computer's fault???

 "Potential GOP presidential candidates racing to show they have what it takes" . This was on Huffpost.  None of them have brains so what the hell are they going to show????

Let's see.  Rethuglicans, under the little Bush, raised the debt ceiling several times to pay for unfunded mandates. Now, they don't want to play?

Why is it they are thumbing down everything they thumbed up on the little Bush's watch?  They're deceivers, liars, phonies, and sanctimonious assholes.  They have lost their sanity, you know... the ability to think and behave in a normal and rational manner.  They exhibit no sound mental health.  If only we could capture them all and wrap them in strait-jackets!

My head is exploding.  I am on Facebook and Twitter and follow so many progressive and liberal blogs, tweets and sites that every day I am bombarded with articles about all the "dreck" the 'Rethugs' spit out.  I listen to progressive radio, especially in the car, and wonder how I haven't yet wrapped myself around a pole listening to what all those right wing nuts are up to.  I'm trying to figure out how to squelch the vomit impulse I feel when I read or listen to their craziness.  I go on some websites of the right and leave quickly to head to the bathroom.

I write to my Senators and Representatives and let them have it on issues, I sign petitions with sites like MoveOn, etc.  I blog and tweet my head off.  I am slowly getting followers from the enemy camp so I must be getting under someone's skin!  My AZ politicians do not speak for me, do not represent all.  It's as if I have no voice.

If only I could find SOME common ground with the other side.  But it is absolutely incredible that there isn't one thing I agree with them on except a need to reduce the federal budget.  But their Draconian approach to everything is beyond the pale.

Why is it the Rethugs want to take away only from the poor, the working class, the frail, the aged, the children, the sick, the veterans, the college kids, education.  What have they taken away from the rich?  What?  They keep throwing money and tax breaks at corporations.  And none of them have created the jobs the Rethugs keep saying those tax breaks will do.  None!

They are slithering snakes in the grass with addlepated brains, hell bent on bringing to its knees anyone or anything that does not look, or think like them.  If they, those crazy Rethugs, ever get their way, this will be a White, Christian nation reminiscent of the 18th century and the rest of the world will shun the U.S.

Chase Bank blames (D) Dick Durbin for losing Disney Dream Reward Dollars.  They offer you these stupid rewards, you think you're getting something and Chase rakes in big bucks in other fees to cover those measly rewards.

Trump gets a weekly guest spot on Faux (Fox).  So, he desperately needs the money? .... and the exposure?  Idiots seem to seek the limelight.  Trump is good at that.  Maybe this is an April Fool's joke.  Trump's the fool.

Glenn Beck says Trump makes him uncomfortable.  Maybe he thinks Trump will replace him as the resident crazy on Faux???

Tea Partiers:  Yoo hoo, Tea Partiers:  This country belongs to the First People, the ones you call Indians.  It doesn't belong to you.  You stole it!  You can't have it back.  It was never yours to begin with, you bunch of thieves!  You are the illegal aliens.

More to come.....................
