    Politics I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration

    I don't even know where to start discussing this, but honestly I'm much more comfortable talking about it here than on social media. And it's important we talk about this. Have you seen the preview's of Woodward's book that comes out next Tuesday? Much of this isn't so much news as much as it...

    Politics I Am Part of the Resistance Inside the Trump Administration

    This is the NYT op ed in its entirety, since many people find it difficult to read. Sorry, NYT. The Times today is taking the rare step of publishing an anonymous Op-Ed essay. We have done so at the request of the author, a senior official in the Trump administration whose identity is known...

    Introduction Hi again

    I'm glad your wife is willing to go to counseling. You're going to need some help to see where your relationship goes from here. Somewhat different, but I watched a friend of mine realize he was gay, and he and his wife figured out that actually they both are. So they have one great daughter...

    Work A co-working space only for women

    Considering how trans folks are pretty much ignored by the cis world, I'd be surprised if that was even contemplated. It should be though.

    Work A co-working space only for women

    Years ago a coworker, who was an advocate for women, asked me if the only thing I knew about a boss was if it was a man or a woman, would I have a preference? And he was shocked when I took no time at all to reply I'll take the male boss, thanks. We really need to work on how gender expresses...

    Introduction It's me

    Oh my goodness, yeah I know what you mean about FB. My news feed is pretty chill for the most part, but only because I've spent the last 2 years blocking sites I just don't want to hear from. I still find the politics pretty darn tiring, but I can't excape it altogether. I mean I can hardly...

    Chat Wow...wedding planning is nuts

    Oh we're uber religious, but thank goodness that religion is Baha'i, so it makes for a pretty chill wedding no matter what you do. I love not actually having to stick with some hoary old "traditions" or anyone's expectations. :) I kind of didn't even feel like the mother of the bride, which is...

    Chat The "UP" thread

    Yup, soon my friend and I are off to Michigan's Upper Peninsula (UP pronounced "yoo pee"). I'll add my bit of travelogue here as I can. I leave for Caveman's on Wednesday, then Saturday I pick up my friend and we proceed directly to Hell, Michigan. (Yes, it freezes over annually - it's...

    Chat Nothing like building a forum and disappearing lol - the 6-month wedding update

    OK well, I didn't really expect to spend 6 months with weddings, but that's exactly what happened. As some of you know, the first, legal and Baha'i wedding of our daughter happened in January. After that it was planning mayhem for a wedding shower, then a more public ceremony/reception in late...

    Heck, men without wealth and fame are fairly immune, though that does seem to have shifted bigly in the last year. I'm happy as long as we don't overcorrect things.

    Politics Trump

    I'm not even tracking the news lately, but I kinda couldn't miss how it only took *2 hours* for prosecutors in the Southern District of NY to put that tweet into a court filing. Wow. These people are just not that smart. Oh yeah, and now Cohen is a coffee boy to the Trump or something. My...

    Chat Wow...wedding planning is nuts

    Whew! The wedding is over, but was a great party (thank you to Nicola, and if you don't visit his restaurant if you're in Atlanta than you are beyond help, just saying), but family and friends are still visiting, but things should get back to normal pretty soon.

    Wow, I can't believe the outburst he had. Does he not understand why you behave well in court? I mean sentencing hasn't even happened yet. His comedy is ruined for me since all this came out and he was obviously up to very skeevy stuff. And I mean, the dude who chided black men for how they...

    Chat Wow...wedding planning is nuts

    Even if you have a "simple" wedding, it's bonkers. The blessing/reception is this Friday, and today people are coming in from Peru, and I'm fixing to head down to a friends house who is basically disabled so I can take care of her while her husband is in Mexico, because that doesn't just...

    Chat I FINALLY FINISHED MY TAXES

    Wow I could hope I get mine before this wedding. It would make paying the bill a lot easier from a technical standpoint... I've tried to get checks from my Credit Union 3 times now, and have had the account for some years. I never get them. I've just given up at this point, and drive to the...

    Politics There’s no good reason to stop felons from voting

    Our justice system lacks a great deal of justice, and is not tempered by mercy at all. It seems to be more in a long chain of things that keep the rich richer, keep the poor poor, and keep the middle class from becoming uppity. This is beyond a shame, because I'm a fan of actual law and order...

    Politics There’s no good reason to stop felons from voting

    So, what do you think? I've wondered pretty much all my life why convicted felon's didn't just get their right to vote back the minute they finished serving their term. I mean whatever happened to the idea that you "paid your debt to society?" Don't we want to make room for people who commit...
