About Me

Liberal, gay, tree hugging activist whenever I can afford.

Although I call him Tiago cause he's no saint.
I've so enjoyed spending some time with this little Tasmanian devil.
But my COVID "sabbatical" time is coming to an end.
I work as a medical Xray/CT tech, I had the COVID early in the pandemic.
My 13 year old mellow yellow Labrador crossed the rainbow bridge last year.
Tiago here is quite a handful. I've had difficulty socializing him with other dogs.
He spent, apparently, quite some time fending for himself before I adopted him.
At 62, in some compromised health, man he's been a handful but now nearly a year after
adopting him I don't know what I'd do without him.
The services are clawing at me to come out of retirement and resume work.
I have some family caregiver duties to complete first.
Fair likelihood of landing in the SF bay area--- as much as there are plenty of doggie day care options...
I'd certainly prefer to arrange day accommodations for him, someone with a well fenced yard this October.

Guilt tripping

I'm dealing with an unexpected eruption of homophobia, hilarious in one aspect, major guilt trip regurgitating, even deadly serious in yet another. Had some PTSD nightmares last night, therapeutically getting it out of my system:
Nutshell PTSD: life threatening BS at the behest of close relatives of the Westboro idiots, long ago, ran away from home, had to survive street urchin homelessness circa 1976. A lot of therapy later... all good now.
Until I turned up to assist my brother with upcoming back surgery, in VA slow cog turning suspense for now.
Brother had subscribed to Roku TV. We'd watched some movies together, some had HETERO sexual content... no issues.
Then I brought up an LGBTQ channel movie. Oh, man. It had a brief nude scene between the main protagonist and his lover, suggestive of sexual relations to happen.
OMG my brothers wife freeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeked out. Now the "unwelcome" mat has been firmly placed by brother's wife, complicating the shit out of this whole ordeal. My brother has no one else capable/city drivable/or has vehicle he can ride home flat and relatively comfortably when this happens.
Jeebus fluck the last damn thing I needed is regurgitation of past homophobic guilt trip shit, but here it is.
Brother laughs it off with me... oops... made the in-law even madder.
I'm at a mountain retreat till this whole ordeal is past. Worst aspect of all (tongue in cheek) now I must Google up that movie to find out how it ends.

No radio

I'm a planned California fire refugee this summer, I've semi-retired, planning on only working winters until my full retirement age. Incurred some losses to the Mendocino complex fire, exacerbated health troubles from the smoke. Had the COVID early in the pandemic. I'm an essential health care provider... not this summer though. Staying at a Royal Gorge resort, discovered only one talk station comes through clearly while setting up here: oh, it would be RWNJ radio.
I listened to the Glenn Beck program as he and guest speakers bent themselves into pretzels to criticize the vaccine in this wacked manner: again and again expressing the vaccine "doesn't work" to eradicate COVID from the face of the earth, just as cold and flu style coronavirus mutants continue to thrive, only losing their crippling pathologic edge with vaccine assisted herd immunity. (cough... "eradication... said no M.D. ... ever" as my BP soared listening to this bent diatribe)
What rendered my BP meds ineffective were their implications that the CDC and Anthony Fauci had indicated such a fallacy. Only at the end of the broadcast did an M.D. guest suggest everyone get vaccinated, then quickly switched the subject to anti-mandate contrarianism. I shut it off.
Here's the potential damage Beck caused: local commuter traffic listening to this steaming pile of bullshit likely only heard the repeated "vaccines no workee" diatribes, only towards the end of the half hour was one quick flash of "get vaccinated"... the RWNJ'S likely never heard.
Got my laptop and internet radio set up now, the RV radio stays off this stay. There it was: the one time I tune in to the contrarian radio, it didn't fail to slyly misinform.

So proud of my fur baby


Buh-bye, delusional log cabin Trumpy Frumpies. Hello equity and compassion


Sent by my brother, apparently a Bill Maher contrivance, I added some lines. Feel free to add/edit

All the votes have been counted, all the courts have said no. You’re all out of options, now pack your shit and go.
It’s clear that you’re angry, that you’re feeling quite low. That feeling’s called losing, so pack your shit and go.
Pick up a new hobby, like knitting or banjo. Call your favorite hooker, just pack your shit and go. Start a cable network, try talk radio. There’s an opening at Limbaugh, but you gotta pack your shit and go.
Cuz you treated your job like a reality show. Well, now it’s been canceled, so pack your shit and go.

If you were a black man, to prison you'd go. You tried to send Hillary there, you know. 
You've murdered the masses with your fragile ego, in part because no one would tell you "NO!"
Your legacy tarnished down lower than low, the future will hate you far more than you know. 

Someone Carved "Trump" Into a Manatee's Back

They don't care about "the left". They don't care about "the blue". They don't care about animals. They don't care about the planet. They don't care enough to wear masks. They don't care about anything but being stupid MAGAt's. Here's proof:


I just want to share this because I'm still laughing so hard...

I don't even recall the Twitter post I responded to, but it was about that idiot televangelist Kenneth Copeland laughing hysterically about Joe Biden's election win. Several chimed in on what a con man he is, bilking fixed income seniors out of millions to fly luxurious jets.
I put a comment I've posted here and elsewhere about televangelists in general:
"Someone please drive a stake through that thing's black little heart."
And I got suspended for violation of TOS!
Someone is even more gullible than I thought.

Georgia has flipped!

The state that brought us the
B 52's has made us happy, happy, happy, campers!!!

Pwotect Weligious Fweedums so We cun tell you how to worship, who to marry, how to live our narrow..

I'm on a junket to western Arizona. Last evening I turned on the radio to keep awake listening to the igonramus shit these RWNJ's have the most gullible convinced of.
This video is a parody, but frankly not that far off from the BS I heard....
It made me mad enough to keep me awake driving after dark!!!
