      The funniest thing about Trump are those who feel he is of a piece, separate from American history, and somehow a break from it.  That this government is significantly qualitatively worse than those that came before, rather than an extension of it.

Stride: Things don’t grow if you don’t bless them with your patience. 

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.

How much you wanna bet they just add the tax cut to the tax reform package?  

They just might pass it this time. I know, I know, the good guys are supposed to win but we are outnumbered. And anyway, last November should have been proof enough that the universe is playing a sick joke on us. So… there’s that…

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’.
