Even Dick Cheney thinks Orangeman’s ban on refugees is unAmerican. This from a man who supported torture and starting wars that benefited his company at the expense of the lives and limbs of some of our best and brightest. If this is not a sign of the apocalypse, I don’t know what is. Continue reading →
They marched in minus 38 degrees in Utqiagvik. They marched in a snowstorm in Anchorage. They marched by the millions around the nation and there was not one violent confrontation, not one arrest, not one complaint from the police that the crowd was unruly or disrespectful. Their strength was in numbers. And what numbers they were!
Plus, women try their best to do things peacefully when possible. On the other hand, push us too far and you will find out just how violent we can get.
Orangeman and his minions may offer something they now term “alternative facts” but the Continue reading →
Orangeman has made me ashamed to be an American. We are a country of refugees and immigrants… at least those of us who can’t claim Native American or Alaska Native blood. And now we’ve closed our doors and become a country I simply no longer recognize. Continue reading →
So let me see if I’ve got this right. Orangeman puts his billionaire friends in positions where they can make great profit while screwing the middle and lower classes then institutes hateful policies to distract his racist followers from noticing. Have I got that right? Continue reading →
Our beautiful snow is melted and the crud that is in our streets… and certainly my deck and back yard… that we shouldn’t see until spring is staring us in the face. I could clean up my deck. Or, I could pray for more snow to cover it and give me a few more months before I have to start shoveling the shit.
And for what it’s worth – if you feed birds on your back deck and seeds fall to the ground, you get all kinds of interesting things growing in your yard when spring does finally arise. Continue reading →
Alaska finally seems to be getting the winter it deserves, which is full of snow and cold. Also, it’s full of a white, frosted beauty that only real Alaskans seem to be able to appreciate. So after way too many years of waiting for winter to happen, I finally had the one that eliminated any excuses for not cleaning out my closets and garage.
I must say, it was revealing. I have apparently not done this since moving down from Barrow. That would explain the 30-year-old backpack tossed into the top of my closet. Or the twenty-five mug warmers that Continue reading →
Ice and snow today. Rain and ice tomorrow. More snow after that. Ah winter, thou art a hard bitch. And yet I love ye! Continue reading →
Another white knuckle drive home from the airport. It’s been so long since we had a snowy winter that I’d forgotten how hard it was to see in white out conditions. So I am home now and staying here until I can see the difference between my driveway and the pile of snow next to it.
Stay safe out there. Continue reading →
OK, correct me if I’m wrong but haven’t the last two Republican presidents, the Shrub and Orangeman, lost the popular vote? And didn’t Obama win the popular vote BOTH times he ran? And now Hillary Clinton carries on the proud tradition of winning the vote and losing the election. Just in case anyone wonders who the American people really wanted for president.Continue reading →
And it’s still snowing! Continue reading →
