What a mess.

identifying gaffers tape

I’m trying to hold this blog together with tape and string. I just moved all the data and it was very old so I’m trying to find a template to use and that all has my head spinning. I don’t want to code this thing.

Anyway please just ignore the mess.

No words.

I realize that I’ve had very few words recently here at the blog. I would like to say that it’s moments of indecision or give a considerably long response having to do with all the things going on in my life. But, that’s not it.

It’s summer.

Resentment and Union Breaking

Leaving workers hanging out to dry helps create animosity for union workers. All part of the “shrinking” of government the Republicans create hatred for workers in unions who have bargaining power. The union workers have bargained for the things every worker wants and are demonized for securing those things, especially pensions. It’s disgusting. And it’s how one citizen turns against another. It’s the next logical step after blaming undocumented immigrants. These are ugly times.

It’s too hot, too hot. Just too darn HOT.


Low tonight 78°, whaaa… This is the current temperature. 94° at 7:45 pm. The low is going to be a chilly 78 degrees. At least in the desert it gets cool at night. An air-conditioned bunker sounds like a good idea. Rain in the forcast doesn’t seem to be poised to give much relief. A good time to hunker down and work or see movies. I’m so confused.

Freezing out women : sexism ski jumping in Olympics

I had no idea. Did you? Did you know that women are not allowed to compete in Ski Jumping in the winter olympics? Did you know that a woman holds the WORLD RECORD? Watch this piece and as you get more angry as you find out more — get angy and speak out. I will post resources to take action as I find them. If you know of any organizations that will help please comment here.
