Every fucking day it's more bullshit from the wacked out conservatives. :mutmad: just learned of the new ban on transgender military service. Woke up to a McCaine lovefest on FB. A few words now does not earn him respect from me.

I need help from some of you more learned Constitutional scholars.  : pbbt:

This ban of his, is this for real?  Is thing something he can actually decree unchallenged, or is there still a measure that could prevent this from becoming real?

where do you place the threshold on gender identification? Like so many things the right fails to understand is that there is no clear distinction and everyone's sexual identity is dynamic. Transgender should be thought of as trancendence, not necessarily transitioning from one to the other. :meh:

I'm going to school with a real life Spongebob who wants to work in aviation. :cry: It is so nuts i can't even fully describe it here.  But he constantly fails written tests and is always claiming that the next test is the last one and he's moving on to Airframe.  Aside from his absolute lack of attention, he has this obsessive need to make odd racist, sexist, homophobic, antisemitic, etc. comments.

Today this all boiled to a head, after a few people told him off last week. I've come close myself. I sternly warned him about his use of the word faggot and I've had to,on a couple occasions, explain that this is very serious business and his approach of memorizing answers without understanding the material would lead to people getting hurt or killed........ Anyway... He told his mom. This morning the vice principal of the whole LAUSD occupational center had to come in. One by one, a few people were called out of class and questioned. One by one, our instructor kept getting phone calls for the next to be haled in. (Not me. I never threatened or directly insulted this jerk. )  It was nutty. : pbbt:

And why would you think it was okay to stop venting? :wtf:

i totally f'd up a simple wallpaper removal in my little half bath off the kitchen. I just had a new floor put in in the kitchen and little bath and thought I would take advantage of the sink and toilet being pulled out of there.. :cry::roll:

the more i watch what's going on politically, the more i realize the idiot will be there this term and probably next. even it there is incontrovertible evidence of wrong doing/illegalities by mueller or anyone else, NOTHING will come of it. it will just become more fodder for outrage (or praise), but Congress will not act, the cabinet will not act so we are stuck/doomed.

I ran in to work last week with ministicky in the stroller so my work bag/clothes and his backpack were all stuffed in the basket below. Drop mini off at preschool and get to work only to realize one of my work shoes fell out along the route. Had to wear running shoes the rest of the day. It took me a few days to be able to retrace my steps but with over 3 miles to cover, no luck finding it. It was my favorite comfy shoe.:cry:

Every once in a while you see a lonely single shoe on the street and wonder how the heck that happened. How does one lose a single shoe out on a walk without noticing? Well, now you know.

:meh:Trying to adopt a kitten. I'm getting the run around from the Humane Society because I don't have written proof(park manager is out of town) that I'm allowed to have two cats. I put on the application that the reason I'm getting a cat is because one of two just passed. If I checked the box saying I owned instead of renting. I would not be in this stupid bureaucratic mess.

But it's cool if I plan to use a cat for pest control. : pbbt:

My parents' 20+ yr old cat died.:sad: She survived being poisoned. She managed to avoid hungry jackals and speeding cars. She held her own reaching a cold peace with both our dogs. She was a weird cat whose meow sounded like a crying infant (due to the poisoning incident), and loved company.  Farewell, sweet kitty.

They discovered that she died when they got back home after being evacuated cause of raging fires 200m from their house. Thankfully the winds cooperated and fire brought under control.

Work's just been shit.

One of the characters in the book is a Frenchman who survived WW1 and decided he wanted to avoid the turmoil in Europe so he emigrated to the Solomon Islands and became a farmer . That area was later invaded by the Japanese and was the scene of many battles .

I took the Insight in for a routine service appointment this morning. It was going to cost $185.

I just got off the phone with the dealership and there's additional work to be done on the front suspension. Approximately $1400 worth of work.

OMG you have a major problem with racist nazi fucks over there so Trump must know he's got a supportive audience! I feel like this is the price we all have to pay for having a relevant black President. America was so not ready for the Obama aftermath apparently!!

Yes but his supporters are still backing him including a lot of my family :cry:   You can't even talk to them about him they are so defensive and write it off as the national media reporting unfairly :wtf:  I like Justin Trudeau but can still be critical of some things he does and not agree with him or say I think that he was wrong there etc.  but they won't acknowledge that he is doing anything wrong.   I now understand how Nazi Germany happened.   I bet he gets re-elected but hope it doesn't happen.
Parent - - By ironjen Date 2017-08-16 11:34 AM
I am assuming some of our family members are still supporting him. However I don't know for certain because 2 of them I unfriended and blocked and the other 2 (of the really bad ones) I changed friend status and unfollowed them so I don't see the shit they post.
Parent - By JimGo1 Date 2017-08-16 12:36 PM
I'm a liberal, left wing person apparently these days but I can atleast look at what the supposed "alt left" is doing and not agree with their methods in some cases.   I agree with the point of they are trying to make but I don't like some of the methods.   I disagree with the alt right and the right on about every issue but I can support their right to demonstrate in a rational, non-confrontational way.  I would like to see a more rational, calm approach to disagreements from both sides.   I can understand the outrage but I'm not sure if we'll get anywhere with both sides raging on each other.
