Green Bay weather on Saturday

In an earlier post I encouraged people to come protest Trumps campaign stop. At that time the temp was forecast to be in the mid 60's with a chance of rain. The forecast at this time is 40 with rain and snow.

I guess he will be getting a "cooler" reception than he thought. I don't usually like snow this late in the season, but c'mon mother nature. Do your thing.

No protests in Wisconsin

Have we given up?

Right wing media

Does anyone else think there is a higher number of republicans than usual spewing on all media this morning? I used to be able to listen to what people with differing views had to say, but no longer. If this keeps up, who needs fox? They are all being paid to perform by the same very rich people. I am feeling a bit paranoid.

Camp David

I need some mental distraction, so I am visualizing the man who thinks he is king and his cabinet spending the weekend at Camp David like a 1980's or 1990's corporate retreat. You know, Sarah folding her arms and falling backwards and trusting Kelly Ann to catch her.
Or them all holding a hedonistic dark ceremony ala a Midsomer Murder episode of a crazy small town.
I also took a break to watch Pharels Happy video, in celebration of our new diverse house of reps, did make me click my fingers.
Just a little thought, I have worked with and for a lot of repubs. They do think bottom line and money over all else. Anyone else think a blue wave flu might be a possibility? Even just one day in support of government workers, and as a caution as to our economic power. No going out to spend money anywhere. Nothing to put anyone's jobs at risk. Maybe naive of me, but desperate times and all that.
So off I go to put pins in an orange haired troll doll's body while chanting giberish, much as he chants to all of us.
Let's stay strong 😊

I am kind of new here

My tag is tech. I am probably the least techy person here, name based on my drinking with people I was not really supposed to be out with, a variation of my Polish grandmothers name, chosen after I married a man of Polish descent who still kept the Polish spelling.

Live in Wisconsin, had moved around for a while, decided we wanted to raise our daughter on Wisconsin sensibilities and closer to the Grandparents. That was 22 years ago, and worked for awhile. And then Scott Walker and Paul Ryan happened.

Disappointed in so many of my friends I went to college with. Yup, repubs. Last two reunions tried to talk to them, claimed gun rights. All white people. Trump fans. Guess I was the token liberal for that group. Did not matter as much in the 70's. Anyone remember the moral majority is neither pins? When we wore pins lol? Hubby and I have had a real hard time remembering Reagan as a hero. But recreational partying was big back then.

So I now stay home with some life altering auto immune difficulties and do not get out much. And I found du. What a pleasure. Some wonderful insight from very witty people. I get a little frustrated with the infighting. I find a little snark goes along way.

I get a little mouthy and preachy on my bad days, for that I apologize. I have my issues. I try to save them for the hubby, an artistic type who has no end to patience with me. But sometimes I fail.

So anyways, thank you all for sharing. Be warned that if you are a long post from me, ignore. Getting on a soap box with my bad knees so go on by, really nothing to read here.

Is happy New year politically correct? Ummm , really not lol. But happy next 12 months anyways. It should be fun 🎊
