Seriously? Am I the first to post about All in the Family/Jeffersons?

Well, I thought it was epic. And I will not spoil the last character to show. Except to say that I suspected it all along .

Capehart.

Dunno about you, but he still activates my middle-finger reflex. In stereo.

I will never forget his lie about Bernie, and his failure to retract it when proved wrong.

Watching MSNBC.

Yep.

As pushed by Bernie.

I may leave here rather than deal with the stress for saying that, but it is the truth and I am currently unable to resist putting it out there.

Google instant apps on Android phone

How the heck do you turn off/remove it/disable it?

Everything I have Googled directs me down paths that don't exist on my phone.

It isn't just that it's something I would never use. It once sucked $10 out of my pocket when it got hung up updating on the data connection I forgot to turn off on my pay-as-you-go phone.

OFFS.

Yes, he lost.

He might not have won even in a fair fight.

We will never know, because it wasn't.

Watching ABC TV news regarding unemployment.

Lowest since 1969.

And it has benefited us regular people how, exactly?

Interviews with "experts" basically geared to lowering expectations.

As expected....

I blame the multinational corporations. They are too big to exist.

On dearie dear.

I wanted to like the royal wedding so much.

Listening to the preacher.

"God's" love is not unconditional. It depends on unconditional belief in "his" "son.". Whom "he" tortured and murdered. Also, the "son" invented Hell.

(I don't believe in any of this except as mythology, so I am using quotes a lot.)

And I have heard bad things about her charity, World Vision, through Kiva. I used to put a lot of money into Kiva through the A&A group, until I became disenchanted with Kiva as well. I wish better than I have heard for both of them.

We really need to recognize mythology as mythology. It can be useful. And it is true as literature and guidance. It's just not true as fact, any more than any work of fiction is.

Tracee Ellis Ross for President. That is all.

Well, not all.

a) On Van Jones. CNN.

b) It appears to be a repeat, although it is the first time I have seen it.

She is a first-rate observer, thinker, and communicator.

Boston African-American median net worth $8.

One of Spotlight's most daunting findings is the economic disparity between whites and blacks in Boston.

Using data from the Federal Reserve of Boston, Spotlight found that non-immigrant African-Americans in the Boston area had a median net worth of $8. "That means they owe almost as much as the combined value of what they own, be it a car, or house, or savings," Spotlight writes.

Tricare prescription question

I recently went on Medicare and Tricare for life.

My first 90 days of mail-order prescriptions was $20, three prescriptions being $0 and one being $20.

My next 90 days changed to $7 and $24, respectively, for a total of $45.

I'm not complaining - just wondering if this was already in the works or was the doing of our wonderful new administration, if anyone happens to know off the top of their head.
