Daily Reminder # 155

So, today's message is not too subtle.  Probably I'm a day late and a dollar short posting it, but so it goes.   I'm obsessed with this election, worried about my country, trying not to dive into a pit of gloom, and trying to get every Democrat I know to VOTE, damm it!  

Do you want a country that doesn't' help it's poor to eat, that invests the future of it's elderly in the stock market, that thinks any moron with enough cash in his pocket should have a gun?  Do you want a country that continues to destroy the environment, while blissfully, stubbornly denying any evidence that global warming is real? Do you want a country where gay men and women can't marry or serve their country openly and proudly? Do you want a country that cares more about short term profits for big companies than about oil spills in the Gulf or pollution of New York State/City water table by gas companies "fracking"?  Do you want to go back to uncontrolled credit card companies? Do you want a country that doesn't care for its ill, its unemployed, its homeless, its children?  If that's what you want, stay home and let the GOP and the Tea Party take over. If you want something else Vote today and vote Democratic.

Some things I'm grateful for today

  • Congressman Maurice Hinchey who is up for reelection
  • the right to vote
  • food stamps
  • SSD
  • Medicare
  • HEAP
  • Barack Obama
  • the internet
  • heat
  • life
  • orange pineapple smoothies
  • Dr. Jim
  • Angel and Tara Grace
  • reiki
  • angels
  • friends
  • my nieces & my nephew
  • my great niece and great nephew
  • photos
  • laughter
  • hope

Get yourself one of these.
It feels good.

and for Americans (especially Democrats)

Last minute addition..... my niece sent this to me. My therapist has repeatedly told me that it has always been thus.... This made me laugh and I'm not feeling very much like laughing today, so... I thought I'd share it here.
