The Ongoing Triumphant Return of Tom Waits Friday


This seems apt:
...
Pin your ear to the wisdom post
Pin your eye to the line
Never let the weeds get higher than the garden
Always keep a sapphire in your mind
Always keep a diamond in your mind

You got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow
Got to get behind the mule in the morning and plow...
Happy Friday, traitors, and welcome to the Cornfield Resistance.

I'm not a traitor. They're the goddamn traitors. Fuck the fascist junta and fuck their enablers.

I keep swinging between despair and rage. Not sure how to do this resistance thing and I feel I'm just shouting at the sky. Guess I have to learn as I go. Get behind the mule, and all that.

Little things like Tom Waits Friday help. Keep up the fight.

When they're taking my health insurance away, resistance is just survival. Nothing else to be done.

My wife has undergone a series of medical procedures over the last 4 months (we were lucky enough to be able to afford very good insurance this year), and is almost done. One surgery to go. And she just found out that it won't be until late January, instead of back in November as we were originally hoping. And our insurance co. is deleting our plan where we live as of January 1. So we've had to find other (as good, a lot more expensive) insurance to start in January. So now, the doctor's office is getting all of the information to the new insurer and telling us that the paperwork might take an additional month.

Which takes us into February.

Which is when the experts are saying that the market might be starting to destabilize because of this fascist piece of shit and the zombie eyed granny starver's plan to destroy the ACA.

I'm not a praying kind of guy, but I hope that you have people who love you near you and with you. Good luck and FSM bless.
