Sorry...need to vent / howl at the moon (NOT about TFG either)

I was awoken this morning by my wife saying "I need you to come downstairs right now"...that in and of itself was ominous.
So, I am panicky...last night, my oldest daughter had an ER visit due to slicing her thumb open where it hits the palm and my wife was with her until almost midnight as a result. I immediately started thinking something was wrong with her and began to get light-headed and that sick hollow gut feeling too.

Then my wife tells me - "someone stole your car...".
Out of our driveway, between 12:30 AM and 6:00 AM.

Now, there is more to this...I got really distracted last night and as a result of that, my key fob for the car was left in the cup holder, underneath a rag that I had used to dust off the dash after spilling soda on it while driving. Between an impending overseas trip, my daughter's mishap with her thumb and getting the groceries out of the trunk, I simply forgot to grab the keys.

By the time I realized this after my wife told me about the theft, I just got sick to my stomach. This is such a violation of my sense of security and peace of mind...I mean for god's sake, one freaking bad night turned into an unbelievable nightmare and I just needed to let off steam because I was in a blind rage earlier and nothing good can come of that state of anger I was in.

OK...I need to go try and get calmed down before I give myself a heart attack here...what a crappy morning.

Seeking calming vibes...

My family is in the midst of a crisis.

We lost mom to COVID-19 and cancer in November. Yesterday, my father travelled from Chicago to St. Louis, he flew in and it was the first time he did anything since mom's passing. Just over an hour ago, I received a frantic phone call from my sister that dad was having symptoms of a stroke.

He is being hospitalized and is alert, but slurred and showing signs of a left side stroke - loss of strength, garbled speech. The h

I am not religious in any way, but I need calming warm thoughts to be able to hold this together right now...

To my anonymous heart donors...THANK YOU!

It always brings a smile to my face, often in times I could really use it!
Might even make me a little less curmudgeonly for a while!

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Can the senators who voted to NOT accept the will of the people be excluded in Senate trial?

There are 9 co-seditionists that voted to support objections to either or both AZ and PA totals.

If they are excluded from the Senate as jurors, then the 100 becomes 91. If Perdue is also excluded due to having lost his seat that may be 90 (or still 91, but with Ossoff instead of Perdue)...

So 2/3rd majority of senators would no longer be 67, it would be 61. That would lower the threshold of conviction significantly and make removal from office (or simply stripping the right to ever again hold ANY office or trust under the United States) ... which might be the best outcome we are going to see?

Do I have that wrong or twisted?

Did anyone think to cut off the internet at the Capitol during this assault?

There were unauthorized people looking at files and computers and e-mails...was the sitaution addressed or are they STILL rooting through things now, hours later?
