I live on a island in the Puget Sound with my husband and my dogs. I am a retired teacher, presently doing in -home care for disabled people while volunteering at a dog rescue

Don't Dish it Out if You Don't Want it Back

Over the last couple of weeks I have had a few encounters with Republican neighbors who were decrying what they perceive as incivility in our neighborhood. People seem angry, they said, sounding puzzled. On FB it’s a rightwing theme to whine about how mean everyone is to conservatives.
Yeah, play that fucking violin. It is so typical of Republicans to not notice a problem until they experience it Read more of this blog post »

“Be not too hard
For life is short
and nothing
is given
to man.
Be not to hard
When he is sold and bought
And must manage as best he can.
Be not to hard
For soon he dies
Often no wiser than he began.
Be not too hard
For life
Is short
And nothing is given
to man.”
