So now what, Lisa?

AFN has come out in opposition to Kavanaugh. AFN.  You remember them, right? When you needed them, they were there for you. They put you over the top in your write in campaign. They have remained some of your most faithful voters.

So what are you going to do now, Lisa, now that they oppose this joke that is looking to get a job that will affect Native American and Alaska Native rights for possibly decades to come? Forget about women’s rights. I’m guessing as the mother of only boys this is not as important to you. You are past Continue reading →


One of THOSE days

Started out going to a place at 4111 Minnesota Blvd. to get the color for the crown on my tooth done correctly. Got there to find out that here in Alaska, we apparently don’t give a crap about providing access to everyone. The business was on the second floor and there was no handicap access. They had handicap parking spaces but those were just to lull you into a false sense of security because, once you so conveniently parked, there was no way to get to where you needed to go. So I guess if you want the service, you Continue reading →


Lisa clearly and blatantly lied to Alaskans

She told us she would represent us independent of party politics. That’s why her write in campaign was so successful. We believed her because we were desperate to believe that there were honorable people in politics. Alaska Natives, in particular, turned out in droves to push her to the top in her contested election. They thought she stood with them.

But we can now see that she didn’t. It was just another move of political convenience from another run of the mill politician. Because if she meant what she said, she would not vote Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court based Continue reading →


Me thinks he doth protest too much

My mother always knew we were lying based on how vigorously we denied we were. No matter how smooth we thought we were being as kids, the minute the lies started, she’d look at us and quote Shakespeare. (That’s the danger of a mother who is an English major.)

When I hear POS ranting about Woodward’s book or the op ed in the NYT or Omarosa’s claims, that quote constantly leaps to mind.

If there isn’t any truth to what is being said about him, why is he so beyond hysterical in his efforts to call it fake news and Continue reading →


I wonder when it happened

Watching the frightening idiocy coming out of the White House to the dead silence of the Republican Party, I have to wonder if they just accidentally lost their spines or had them surgically removed so they could make it through this presidency. This “family values” party, this party of “Christian conservatives”, this party of ” fiscal responsibility” is now sitting silent as their putative leader violates every tenet they ever claimed to hold sacred.

For me, one of the most outrageous actions is their attempt to pass another tax cut bill as federal employees are denied a pay raise due Continue reading →


I don’t understand

Or maybe I do. Lisa Murkowski is apparently considering voting to give a man who has questioned Alaska Native rights a lifetime appointment to the Supreme Court. How is that even possible?

I thought I couldn’t get past her possible support of a man who thought birth control pills were pre-abortion pills. I mean – what century does this man come from? Possibly the same century that thought an all male priesthood was a good idea? That was a thousand years ago… yep, that’s about right.

But to betray some of her most devoted constituents by putting a man on Continue reading →


Come on, Lisa. Do the right thing

Anyone with any sense of decency should be totally offended by the charade playing out in the US Senate. Seriously, why even pretend to hold a fair hearing when it is so obviously a biased one. 42,000 pages of info released the night before the hearing started? A judge comparing birth control to abortion pills while pretending to believe that Roe v Wade is settled law? A candidate for the Supreme Court caught lying under oath about not knowing something that a memo he’d written shows he not only did know, but had a legal opinion on it? A candidate Continue reading →


I do not know what is more horrifying

Some days are worse than others with the POS currently sullying the White House. But today might take the cake. In the last twenty four hours he has tried to push for a policy that would allow them to separate immigrant children from their parents and keep them in cages indefinitely; suggested an op ed piece in the NYT might be treason; and the only person who has come to the defense of his stability is the crazed leader of North Korea.

I’ll give you a minute to absorb all that.

There was a time in America when detaining children Continue reading →


Now we are getting beyond scary

Don’t know how you feel about it, but the Kavanaugh hearings scare me a lot and POS’ tweet this weekend implying that justice should take off her blindfold and prosecute based on political affiliation REALLY scares me.

We may not be a banana republic yet, but we are being led by an idiot who would be very comfortable being the dictator of one. And he is clearly trying to turn this great country into a banana republic dictatorship in which he would rule supreme.

If you ever wondered about the greatness of our constitution and its checks and balances, now Continue reading →


I can’t imagine

I am blessed with both Medicare and State of Alaska retiree insurance as a secondary. When I have a health issue, I don’t think twice about going to a clinic or seeing a doctor.

Yesterday I managed to trip and totally mess up my left foot. Not necessarily broken but pretty gross and painful. Thanks to my insurance, I went to a doc this morning (the outside of my left foot was turning purple so it seemed appropriate), then I went for an xray and then I had a prescription filled for pain meds. And it all cost me a Continue reading →
