If there's a heaven and a hell, what do you suppose will happen to...

...Roger Ailes, when he "dips his toes in the chilly streams of Jordan?"


(Of course, I wish him a long, prosperous life and am only engaging in idle speculation.)

The Tingler--what a hoot!

It's a great old Vincent Price movie on AMC, right now. It has everything! Fear, suspense, LSD!

Checked out the new neighborhood Walmart grocery store, today.

I boycott Walmart and, with extremely few exceptions, I have done so for decades. But, out of curiosity, I decided to check out their new local grocery store just to see what they offer and how the prices compare to where I usually shop.

The prices weren't any lower, really. Selection was okay. They do offer certified humane, free-range (not just "un-cooped" eggs but they run $3.89 for 10--not even a full dozen!

The big "take-away," though, came from my chat with the cashier who told me that her Walmart paycheck qualifies her for WIC assistance. In fact, she wouldn't be able to adequately feed her children without WIC.

So, nothing has changed: Walmart under-pays their workers and we make up the difference. I don't have a problem with helping poor women and their children. I do have a problem with a multi-national behemoth like Walmart not paying their employees a living wage.

So, free-range eggs be damned, I will continue to refuse to enable those fuckers.

A family member's Marine fiance didn't get his discharge payout.

He was told that this was due to the shutdown. He will have to wait to receive it before he can come home.

Don't let the anyone get away with saying that the shutdown isn't hurting soldiers. That's a lie.

Say it with me: The Republican shutdown is affecting Americans who agreed to stop bullets for us. It's an epic and shameful breach of promise.
