A petition on Change.org--Killing unsuspecting polar bear cubs... I can't stop crying.

ďThe Department of the Interior has big plans for oil drilling in the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, which has grave consequences for the last remaining polar bears. The heavy trucks used for seismic surveys will crush undetected polar bear dens, causing mother bears to flee and leaving cubs defenseless. For this already threatened species, every cub matters.Ē

I donated...just canít stop crying.

Fox's trending "news" today--drunk daughter fractures fathers skull.

Every day, lord fatass is destroying our world, and fux completely ignores whatís happening.

But any dirt on any democrat óno matter how old or tangential to current eventsóis red meat for days.

I hate them with a raging fiery fury.

Just had to vent that. Thank you for your attention. rant/off

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is reportedly out It's still unclear whether he has resigned

Source: Vox

Rosenstein reportedly resigned on Monday three days after the New York Times reported the deputy attorney general said he wanted to record conversations with President Donald Trump last year, and also discussed using the 25th amendment to remove the president from office. Rosenstein denied the report, and one source told the Times that the deputy attorney general had merely been joking.

But it looks like Rosenstein decided to leave his post anyway, and the White House accepted his resignation ó although some report he was fired.

On one hand, he was committed to protecting the investigation from conservatives inside and outside Congress who believed it was biased against the president and had urged Trump to fire the special counsel. But Rosenstein couldnít champion the investigation too much, or heíd draw Trumpís ire.
Rosensteinís departure strikes at the heart of the Trump-Russia investigation because Mueller had to run major investigative decisions past the deputy attorney general. Rosensteinís temporary replacement, Solicitor General Noel Francisco, could simply refuse to approve Muellerís requests, effectively slowing the whole investigation to a crawl ó or even fire Mueller outright if he felt there was a reason to do so.

Solicitor General Noel Francisco will temporarily replace. He could slow the investigation or even derail.

I am ANGRY!!!

Considering the magnitude

of this coup of the US republican party, and thinking of Local Government levels. Even small rural towns.

I only wonder #HowManyFlunkiesAreThere?

I want Democrats to fight back.

I love Al's clever strategy of disarming apology, and inviting investigation.

Other than cases like this, where apology is actually a Smart Defense that WILL bite the christofascists right back in their degenerate asses.......

Enough apologetic backing down.

The wrongs of Democrats belong to individual's poor decisions as a general rule, or they are wrongs of treating Our Friends Across the Aisle with undeserved courtesy.

They are nowhere near the traitorous systems that pukes started building decades ago and uphold as a unified group.

When Depression Can't Be Cured.

Just found this article:

"Depression doesnít go away for everyone. For most people, depression is temporary and passes naturally or once the person has expressed the feelings and resolved the thoughts causing the depression. But there is a small percentage of people who can talk about their issues, express their feelings, take very good care of themselves emotionally, even take medication and have a great life, and still be depressed throughout their lives. They may have periods of feeling good, periods of feeling less bad, and periods of feeling horribleófor these people, the depression never goes away permanently.

Major depressive disorder is the medical term for repeated episodes of a very intense, deep depression that is disabling and enormously painful. People who are bipolar experience similar disabling depression during their depressive phases. Often, between episodes, people return to a functional, happy state. Sometimes people can also have a milder depression, even between episodes of major depression."

The paragraph below describes my brand of depression very well. I hadn't realized that there was a type of Major Depressive Disorder like this Atypical:

"There are also people with ďatypicalĒ depression who can be in a deep depressive episode and yet appear to come out of it long enough to laugh or enjoy something briefly before sinking back in, or can act normal for short periods. This can be confusing to both the depressed person and to other people. This isnít an indication that the person is any less depressed or any less in danger than someone in a major depressive episode who doesnít have those brief breaks. Itís just a different form. Atypical depression is also characterized by feeling emotionally paralyzed, physically leadenóbarely able to move or engage in any activity, and often overeating, oversleeping, and experiencing sensitivity to rejection."
