I’m teaching myself how to play my guitar with Yousician. It’s more like playing Guitar Hero except with real fingering and frets and stuff. Looking forward to my own sing-along.

And addicts.

And seniors in Medicaid funded nursing homes. 

Those Republicans have got your number, they’ve conditioned you good and you’re willing to kill a lot of people to serve their agenda. 

So, it’s murder either way. 

Just sayin’.  


Omg, he’s chatting up the First Lady of France:
