One of the women that lives near me who takes her electronic wheelchair to the store has something like that attached as well. Looks pretty handy, really. - Jennifer Dittrich
Watching "Seven Days in May" for a movie made in 1964 it still speaks today
Today was State Fair Day for War Lady and me. #twogimps Her with torn meniscus me with my IBM compromised quads. At one point, she turned to me saying: "I burned through all my spoons, now I'm into forks....." #youhavetolaugh
State Fair was fun with food and Alpacas and crowing roosters and big draft horses and did I mention food?
State Fair tomorrow in search of "mini-donut" Beer In a glass rimmed with cinnamon sugar #whatsnottolove and onion rings and #foodgloriousfood
My arms are sore as hell after my infusion today. Sore as an old junkie.... One more visit then my train ride gives me and my sad sore veins a rest. On the bright side I did get lunch.... #Iamsoooeasy
Cornel West: “He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency” http://www.salon.com/2014... via @Salon
No, the thing is he posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency. The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free. The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, the war criminals go free. And yet, you know, he acted as if he was both a progressive and as if he was concerned about the issues of serious injustice and inequality and it turned out that he’s just another neoliberal centrist with a smile and with a nice rhetorical flair. And that’s a very sad moment in the history of the nation because we are—we’re an empire in decline. Our culture is in increasing decay. Our school systems are in deep trouble. Our political system is dysfunctional. Our leaders are more and more bought off with legalized bribery and normalized corruption in Congress and too much of our civil life. You would think that we needed somebody—a Lincoln-like figure who could revive some democratic spirit and democratic possibility. - WarLord
nd we ended up with a brown-faced Clinton. Another opportunist. Another neoliberal opportunist. It’s like, “Oh, no, don’t tell me that!” I tell you this, because I got hit hard years ago, but everywhere I go now, it’s “Brother West, I see what you were saying. Brother West, you were right. Your language was harsh and it was difficult to take, but you turned out to be absolutely right.”... more... - WarLord
I don't necessarily understand but it looked cool on the back of his coupe... #ijustshootthepictures

We passed a semi truck yesterday, a giant one, and painted on the side in 5 foot letters was "Jesus Christ is Lord Not a Swear Word." Apparently Jesus doesn't care much for the environment or gas mileage. - Steve C Team Marina

My #AMTRAK adventure continues. Amtrak e-mailed our itinerary then called to confirm we understood the potential travel delay caused by the Bakken Oil Train rail "congestion." The fact that Empire Builder travels right through Williston, ND -- the heart of the "oil-patch" is main problem for our travel.

Of course the unit trains cause problems all along their route. I'm guessing farmers moving crops to market are far more inconvenienced than we are. We're just along for the ride.... #howerool - WarLord
There is so much oil being produced in North Dakota I keep expecting the 82nd airborne to invade... Maybe they'll find some Al Quada in Fargo.... - WarLord
Good Morning it's infusion day today. Off to St John's to get a big bag of umm goodness OTOH I get lunch there so #winning
Its racism, not “principled conservatism”: The South, civil rights, GOP myths — and the roots of Ferguson http://www.salon.com/2014... via @Salon
But the South was already halfway out the door at the time. Missouri, with a fair amount of Southern culture in its veins, is nonetheless a border state, home to Harry Truman, whose enunciation of a civil rights agenda, followed by integration of the armed forces and strong civil rights platform in 1948, led to the walkout of the Dixiecrats, which cost him a dramatic 20 percent drop in the share of the Southern vote from where it had been in 1944. That launched a transitional era that is strangely lost to most who ponder such things today. - WarLord
Hmm very similar to Domestic Discipline really is just beating the crap out of their family. Interesting how they are all trying to redefine things. - Me
