Help Out, you people.

My sister Tara was born with Cerebral Palsy (CP) and is confined to her wheelchair. Living in Kansas, there aren't always many resources to get her the equipment she needs. One thing she has always done without is a van with a lift. For years we have had to lift her into a vehicle in order to take her anywhere. This is no longer possible as it is hard on her body as well as ours. A van with a lift would completely change Tara's quality of life. She has many medical appointments as well as things she would like to be able to do. (We cannot take her anywhere with us, including something as simple as eating at a restaurant). I have struggled with doing a fundraiser for this for a very long time and feel this is the only way Tara is going to get what she needs. If you feel compelled to help, we thank you. (I did not know what to set our goal as, it may seem out of reach, but if we are doing this we are going for as reliable a vehicle as possible)
Help spread the word!

Help this girl out.

Free State of Jones

I don't care if the reviews are bad, I want to see Free State of Jones

No to Tim kaine

Hillary must not pick Tim Kaine as her Vice President. Kaine is too hawkish (which underscores a big problem with Clinton). Further, he is anti abortion rights. He brags about cutting taxes, including estate taxes (that was a big gift to the wealthy at the expense of the working and middle class). Kaine is a bad idea. A disaster!

the grift, tho

This, over at Lawyers Guns and Money is  very interesting.

It seems likely that they are going to chuck Lewandowski under the bus, but if I were a betting man, I'd toss some coppers at the proposition that Trump is behind the grift himself.

Hide the matches

If you have a child that plays with matches you want to fix it. You'll talk to the kid. You may read articles and books. You may discuss the issue with other parents, spend time in online groups, reach out in other ways. Some people in that situation will see the family doctor. A psychiatrist may be consulted. You will, almost certainly, look for root causes and try to find a long term solution. That only makes sense.

Before you do any of that, though, unless you are an absolute moron, you will hide the fucking matches.

Let me repeat that:

Sunspring is a movie written by a neural network. It is an amazing piece of cinema. You can see the entire film and read about how it was made here. After seeing it I no longer want to do any thing or have any experience that isn't me watching this film.

It must be Biden #letjoestay

There is only one rational choice to be Hillary Clinton's Vice President: Joe Biden. Joe is the most qualified, has the best teeth and (honestly) is much too old and set in his ways to get a new job. Do you really want to make him pack? Joe Biden for VP! Join the revolution, people.

Finished with Daily Kos

I am now supporting Hillary, but KOS spewing lies and idiocy is almost enough to turn me into a Jill Stein voter. Shut the fuck up, Markos. You stopped being relevant to the left about a year ago.

Markos has sold out

Hell, recently he has banned users for diaries that were made up of quotes from Markos himself. It's sad and I am finished.
