Seriously, don’t. Please, pease don’t. I am appalled and embarrassed by you know who’s remarks. But surprised, not really. How many times does he need to say and/or do something racist for us to realize that he is racist? I am, however, deeply disappointed in the response from GOP leaders and Republicans as a whole. Their refusal to condemn his remarks is a slap in the face to MLK and to minorities of which I am one.
Thoughts, Ramblings, Musings and Funnies
I still remain a bit numb after last week. It has been one horrible, no good, awful, terrible thing after another with Emperor Baby Fists. I never expected him to pivot into being presidential but Lordy! I also expected more out of him than this. My mistake. Thus, I am grumpy. Tired. Frustrated. But I am not giving up.

This is a work in progress, an ongoing journey with many points and one that never stops until my last breath. Once upon a time I was a meek rabbit, but now I am becoming a ferocious lion who is protective of this very special creature I call Tanya. I was recently reminded of my power from (of all things) a car commercial.
