Oklahoma cuts Higher Ed another 16 percent.

We like it here, but if you are looking for a job in higher ed I would think long and hard before coming here to Oklahoma right now. We are under fire by the anti intellectual crowd. The Legislature, which is nuts, want control of tuition rates again so they are making our lives miserable. These cuts will be people this time.

Does anyone know of a foundation that helps people with large vet bills?

A friend has been in an accident and she doesn't want to part with her pup who has been her lifeline. It is also her son's dog.

I heard there were foundations, but I have been unable to tell which ones are legit and which ones are not through an internet search.

I am not seeking help for anyone here, just resources for her.

Any leads would be appreciated.

Oklahoma Governor Mary Fallin named co-chair of the Republican

Convention Platform Committee. As soon as I have a link I'll post it. This should make us all terrified of Trump and his "friends". She is an idiot!

Disability question

Do you really need an attorney to fill out the forms for SS Disability? I know they are complicated but I think I can do it, I am doing this for a friend. I don't want her to have to give any of her SS to some low life attorney.

The ignore button is my friend.

I had nobody on ignore at the beginning of May, now I have over 75. I just can't take all of the conspiracy theories and negative stuff against all Democrats except Bernie supporters. My blood pressure is much lower now.

Hell is freezing over...

Oklahoma Governor Mary (Mattress Mary) Fallin, vetoed the bill making performing an abortion a felony. I cannot believe this, the Republicans must have enough votes to override the veto so everyone comes out ok.... What a state we live in!

When will the party have a talk with Bernie and Jane?

He is one angry guy right now. I liked him and could see voting for him up until a couple of months ago. He is crazy angry right now, my feeling is he is weakening Hillary with his constant attacks. Can't the party do something?

Maybe I am being simplistic, but I swear he should lose any power he has been given in the Senate after this fiasco.

Is the General discussion Primary group getting even more nasty or is it just me?

I guess I'm going to have to trash it. I have been on several juries in the past few days and they were nasty nasty posts about Hillary that were voted to leave it alone. In some cases I was the only one who said to hide it. Makes me sad this place has been taken over by a faction of people who really don't care if we hand Trump the White House.

I am beginning to feel like my body hates me.

I have spent the past 10 years, taking care of elderly parents, and parents in law, a friend dying of cancer and in between myself, through back surgery and other ailments.

Yesterday I went to my eye doctor, I had cataract surgery last year but still have some fuzziness. He is sending me to a specialist because he said he thinks I have macular degeneration. I could not sleep last night, have not told my husband, he doesn't need more stress right now. I see the doctor tomorrow morning.

Has anyone dealt with this?
