    Voting: What’s Happening in your State

    I just signed up to be an election judge. I have mixed feelings. I want to help with getting out the vote, but this seems a bit like the passive way to do it. My theory is that the older volunteers who often serve might be fearful of contacting ****, so I’m a replacement for one of them. But a...

    Why Does This Keep Happening: The Police Thread

    I live in the Twin Cities. Riots, looting in Mpls., then looting at a St. Paul Target, then malls/grocery stores began closing as a precaution. The hospital where I work (I am remote right now) - which is the one that treated George Floyd - has locked its external doors as a precaution...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    It could also be one of his many distraction stunts. Throw something out, see what sticks to the walls.. Get eyeballs and lots of media time. He is a genius at yanking people's chains. Probably planning another under the wire pro-pollution exec order while we're not watching.

    Does he not grasp that he's killing his base?

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    In Minnesota, we now have 19 cases in a meatpacking plant at our border with Iowa. Perhaps 19 of the “liberate” protesters could drive down and take those job openings. >:-(

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    just listened to my governor's daily press conf (Minnesota), one of the (Democratic-governor) states Trump sicced his minions on. A reporter asked about the protesters. Gov. Walz gave a calm response. An ICU RN also calmly discussed the devastating impact of the ***** on her, her colleagues, her...

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    Why don't the media...just stop writing about Trump? Go to the press conferences, etc, but not ask him any questions and direct all questions to people who know things and are nonpartisan. Just a thought. You don't give lots and lots and lots of attention to a tantrum-throwing toddler. you give...

    suggestions for donating the $1200 US aid?

    I am fortunate enough to not need this $1200. One place I may donate at least part of it is to organizations that help childcare providers. But there are many, many other needs. Suggestions on places/organizations which are most in need at the moment?

    Don’t Hate! Self Isolate! Share your tips!

    I just watched N&K's FD from JR worlds...will have lots of time to savor the up and coming dance generation during this time. Wow, they were good. Now we just need dance's depth to happen to pairs too.

    Dangers of a Trump Presidency--Part 7

    It is fascinating that germophobe Trump apparently isn't stopping his rallies (nor are Bernie and Biden). I do wonder how his true believers will react if ********* 19 spreads as a result of rallies...there will doubtless be some way to explain it away (Obama, Clintons etc etc). Not to mention that...

    Max Von Sydow

    he had an incredible career...playing chess with the devil, exorcising the devil, multilingual, and even Game of Thrones. 70ish years! Wow.

    Let's Talk Movies #35 – Sparrows and Panthers and Dinosaurs…Oh My!

    Saw Rocketman last weekend. The musical #s seemed to fit, for me - they were fantasies in line with his crazy stage persona & costuming. I didn't know anything about his life, so the biographical stuff interested me. So glad he kept his lifelong friendship. I hope he ditched the evil manager...
