So, I Guess The Second Civil War Will Start in Minneapolis.

Sorry this post is late this week. WordPress was having tantrums on Friday and refused to work. so, here we go:

 

Twitter has to put red flags on the president’s tweet for threatening to call out the National Guard to shoot looters in Minneapolis, to call him out for “glorifying violence” (which is against Twitter policy), but also decides that it’s in the public interest to leave the tweets on-line, and then the president threatens to shut down the social media platform in retaliation, well, that sounds to me like incitement to rally the idiots of the neo-confederacy to draw blood in a vicious lost cause once again.

Oh well. Just another day in my shithole country.

On Sunday, May 24, the New York Times printed 1,000 one-line obituaries for those who have died of COVID-19, starting on the front page. Today, the death toll is 103,334 Americans dead, and Trump is congratulating himself.

 

I had planned to discuss a whole different topic today, but the news about Trump v. sanity makes everything else irrelevant.

So I’ll save the fun stuff for the end because today it’s important to get to the Trump Fuckery right away:

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

OK, that’s out of my system. Now we can lighten up. And you all know where I’m going with this…

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Let’s get together on Wednesday so we can talk about what I had planed to talk about today, that is, if the country hasn’t burned down by then.

This is the way this cat’s coloring lines up when she naps.

Try to have a normal weekend, Dear Ones. And if all else fails, you can always hide under the covers with a cat or two.

    I wonder if the cats are on those circles because they’re lying on whatever’s new and different, just as they do in our houses! (“Novel stimuli,” as my college roommate once put it.)

    I hope Trump DOES shut down Twitter. He would shoot himself in the foot so effectively that way!

    I have no words. Well, I do, but we’ll just leave them because karma’s a bitch.

    I thought the cat was a skunk as the photo was rolling up from the bottom. Glad to hear it’s not.

    Turn off the news. I can’t, but someone in the world should. It’s just too horrible and more and more every day…

    It is a bad week for the US I agree, it looks pretty crazy from the outside. Good luck everyone!

    I love the cats sitting in the circles and the bagels cut into slices made me laugh.

    Sorry the blog was being a pain to get up – we appreciate it a lot!

    And now downtown Seattle is a disaster zone, only blocks from Beth. I feel hollow and numb. I like ignoring the news, but this one I can’t. I’m going to need 20 cats.

    It is all just so sad. And yes! I am not counting this year. One year I had issues with my husband, so I don’t count that year either. Really I am younger than you think.
    That guy in the WH what can I say, but he is the biggest criminal in this country in my opinion. I don’t usually use the word HATE, but with him it isn’t even strong enough.
