* So if a person is deaf and therefore can't respond instantly to verbal commands it is justified for police to shoot him on sight, but if police "can't hear" because they aren't listening to neighbors yelling that "he can't hear," it is a valid excuse for murdering an innocent person.

* Look, Insane Clown Posse isn't my type of music, but I stand with them when the government is literally taking their kids away from their fans for attending a concert and criminalizing them over their tattoos. It's scary as fuck and a terrible precedent. I'm old enough to remember the PMRC and congressional hearings and lawsuits over rap and metal. It's an injustice that it's happening at all, which needs to stop, but I can easily foresee 45 having his minions criminalize listening to all sorts of music he personally doesn't like, and I know that hip hop and metal are definitely next on the list. Anything Goth, anything subculture, anything rebellious. We'll be stuck with Christian rocks and country and people will be doing jail time and losing custody etc. for stupid band tattoos they got in college.

I remember after Columbine having to defend my goth students in the Faculty Room, because there was a push to come down on them and treat them like dangerous criminals for liking Marilyn Manson music and black clothes. (I'd been Goth since '88, but one doesn't dress that way to teach). The first time I heard of ICP was in the oughts when two of my guys were getting hassled by admin over writing the logos on their notebook covers, so I went home and researched it, so I would know what I was talking about so I could advocate for them. Yes, there are drugs at the gatherings. There are drugs at music festivals and concerts and raves. It doesn't mean that anyone who liked the Grateful Dead or went to a Rave once is a dangerous gang member. It seems to me the FBI is going after the Juggaloes because they are poor, so don't have money for expensive legal defense, and they dress in a way that makes it hard for people, particularly in the media, to take their complaints seriously. They are easy to mock and ignore and belittle. hur, hur, people are having their lives ruined because they like to weir make up and listen to music on their days off.

Fuck that! I don't have to like the music or want to be part of their subculture to see them as human beings who need their human rights and fair treatment under the law.

This is a canary in the coal mine, and I refuse to mock people who are in danger of losing everything because the ruling party wants a police state.

* My lungs turned nasty some time after midnight and i have been feverish all day. They called me in the morning to tell me they don't make those valves anymore. Short of paying for custom machining (Might as well wish for another car), best to just drive it gently and hope. (I was given a number to call about used, but the man said it was a terrible idea to install a used one so they don't sell them. The result was I got to dream of fevers instead of dragging myself out to Honest Mechanic.

I got my first polling for the election this November, pretty clearly an attempt by the challenger to test out arguments against a City Councillor I rather like (strong environment and strong prison reform. IE: Mental health and drug diversion). I'll be fascinated to see what the focus grouped adds look like. Her arguments were pretty cleverly coded for our particular voting district. I enjoy dissecting these things.

Remember folks, please vote every legal chance you have. Vote in primaries. Vote in off year elections. Vote in every race, no matter how small and local. Unless you've got a special election, odds are where you live, the only things on your ballot this November will be small local races and ballot initiatives. Google is your friend. You may not know that candidate for treasurer or sheriff or school board, but you can generally find published opinions and which groups are endorsing them. Local election have a huge effect on your quality of life. Is the water safe to drink? How aggressive are the police? What sort of zoning regulations are there and are they building dangerous chemical plants next to elementary schools? Local elections can have a huge effect on how safe you are. If you vote every time you have a chance, you'll also have more warning when the Republicans try to take away your right to vote and more time to appeal and get your registration reinstated.

Register now, if you aren't registered already. Vote in November, even though voting for sheriff isn't as exciting as voting for president. Resist.

Realistically, I still need to pick more sacrifices so I can add more tomorrow, but I'm also meant to be foraging etc.. tomorrow, and I'm not convinced I'll be able to pick fast enough anyway, so we'll see.

* The Republicans have until the end of the month to steal your health care and there is a good chance of them succeeding, as the current bill robs blue states that took Medicare expansion to give block grant bribes to red states like alaska in hopes of flipping the votes of wobbly Republicans. It also robs 30 million people of their health care, dramatically cuts Medicaid generally, and is designed to dramatically jack up prices for pre existing conditions and copays just generally.

Look, I know we are all tired, but we need to come out and fight one last time. We need the in person protests at town halls and district offices as well as in Washington. We need faxes and phone calls. We need to hold them off just a few weeks longer. Bombard your Republican Congress Critters wit personal stories. Make them listen to the people they are planning to kill. This is geometrically more important if you have Senators like Collins, Murkowski, McCain, etc., who were against or soft on previous rounds.

* I know I haven't written about the people who died in a nursing home literally across the street from a working hospital with power, basically because the idea of it is so distressing and horrible and able bodied person lazy and pointless, because how fucking much effort would i have taken to move vulnerable people literally across the street to safety? I bet a lot less than setting up fans that weren't enough, and why the fuck wasn't the AC hooked up to the back up generator? They had power to run fans. That has me furious about asshole penny pinching nursing home admin who gave no fucks for vulnerable elders in their care. The place my Mom chose for herself not only had a back up generator, but a system where if the back up fucking failed in a major storm or flood there was a third emergency system where she could hook up her oxygen machine and survive like that for days. how do I know this? Because we talked over her contingency plans in advance of a big storm their the last winter before she died. (She liked to talk these sorts of things over with another competent adult, and my father being dead, and me sharing the trait of having multiple contingency plans being a comfort, she was apt to do this with me). They had a bus evacuation system if they needed to move everyone with special transport for the full nursing care building and designated evacuation locations depending on the disaster. It is possible to plan this shit out in advance if the people running a place are ethical. Those deaths didn't have to happen if anyone at all with a smidgen of authority gave too shits about the people in that facility, both as far as planning for predicable disaster (It's Florida. Hurricanes are seasonal and flooding a predictable thing that happens often enough to plan for.), and in the immediate "This isn't safe! We need to evacuate the medically fragile across the street" sense.

Well, it looks like a lot of people feel that way. The facility is closed as a crime scene, and there are likely to be a variety of criminal charges. Some of the likely charges have sentences of up to 30 years. Good. Lock the bastards up. Eight people died because of their callousness.

* I got crap sleep again as I'm still recovering from the pneumococcal vaccine. There's a steady upward trend, and again, I'll happily trade a week or so of this for 10 or more times when I don't get pneumonia. I woke with the shakes, so gave myself an extra half hour nap, as often the reset helps. It did in this case, though I'm sluggish. I managed to get out at a reasonable time to Honest Mechanic. It's looking like a $60.00 valve job. I have strong hopes of this being the last of the car things needing doing. This is taking everything I have left for the month except car insurance, so I'm completely fucked for other bills, but engine health is important. I go back Tuesday.

When I got home, the B Disabled parking was open, and that's not much further than my actual stolen spot and has the added benefit of being right by B recycling. All I had to carry was the empty disposable tea cup from the mechanics, so I tossed it in the trash and checked the cardboard recycling. Thee was not only an ideal bottom pad shape, but also a flower box in the perfect shape to hold the thing open. It will lose shape as it soaks, but I left the car with the seating propped open to air and dry in the sun. This process has been slow, but there has been noticeable improvement. Squirrel has been changing the cardboard as he has access to it at work, and I'd guess there is about half as much water in there as there was the day I bailed, maybe less, as it's hard to tell how much is in the seats, but when I opened it, it's more a drip than a waterfall.

I came home to have the toilet paper holder fall off. I was expecting it as I had to epoxy the other end last week. There is no permanent solution as the guy who built this place was terrible, so I periodically have to reattach them. I ended up making a mess as my hands are shaky, but I've hopes of another 6-8 months till the next incident. Then I got to sweep and mop the kitchen floor as Squirrel lost a piece of the blender when he unloaded the dish washer. (He did search last night). I am happy it was on the floor as the next step was going to involve taking that whole side of the kitchen apart. Still, the shakes are well back.

Squirrels project we were doing the scavenger hunt earlier in the week to get low cost ingredients for went off beautifully by the way.

* ...And I think I just killed the microwave by forgetting to turn the fan on before starting pasta on the stove top. I know better, but I'm exhausted and shaky so forgot. The fix for it is heartbreakingly easy according to the internet, The problem is, the asshole who built this place mounted things wrong. I can see half of the two screws I would need to unscrew to get the access panel open, but to unscrew them, I would have to dismount the entirety of the kitchen cabinets, which is absolutely out of the question physically. I am not tall enough with the ladder even if I did have several people to help me and somewhere to put everything in the fucking cabinets. Because the asshole who built my kitchen didn't measure anything correctly. I have unplugged it to make the screaming stop. There is a chance it will dry on it's own, as it did the other time I forgot to turn on the fan, but that time the alarm stopped in about half an hour and it's now been an hourish. Fuck. Fuck, fuck, fuck. A field trip into Squirrel's cave suggests he's broken the other micro wave. No fucking way can I afford a new one and where would I put it?

Addendum: 9:50. I plugged it in to see if I could reheat the tisane, and it is working again. Fuck, that was scary.

Addendum 9:58. Microwave starts screaming again. I'll try it again tomorrow.

* I was exhausted, so went to bed super early. Unfortunately, I forgot the cough, so I ended up spending my three hours of coughing in bed not sleeping instead of spending it doing something useful. Sleep, when I got it, was not good. Today's mission was to take Squirrel to get an elderly truck he'd been gifted, which needed a new battery, but otherwise works. It turned out the battery was too far gone for the truck to make it more than a block, so I drove to the battery place where I also got my tires. I'd noticed the passenger tire was low on Monday when I last took it out, and had added air to the to do list. we pulled in and the tire guys gave it a horrified look and asked if we were there for tires. "I hope you didn't buy tat here." "I did, a couple weeks ago. I have a receipt." The man helping us today was the one who looked rather like Tyr from Almighty Johnson's and remembered me and my battery from last Spring. He took the tire off, was horrified that they'd sold it to me and replaced it free. Squirrel's battery was about 30.00, so the trip was a win all around, although it did take all afternoon and more than a quarter tank of gas. Squirrel replaced his battery and followed me home so I could get him if there were problems.

In other news, assholes moved into the apartment we share space with. I say assholes advisedly as they know I am disabled, but are clearly shell gaming the spot, moving a different car in whenever they move the other car out, so we have no change at a turn, knowing full well I'm disabled and need a spot. I feel like this is cheating. It's one thing to come home and find the spot full as the luck of the draw, but I feel like going to those lengths to fuck us over knowing full well we were lied to also is super dickish. Normally, this wouldn't be a big deal, as I'd just park in the disabled spot, but someone with a temp tag good until February is perma parked there (as in, we don;t think they've moved in in the last month). I'm guessing they are really hurt or ill and just don't leave the house for non-doctor things, so I don't begrudge them. Someone is also perma parked in B disabled, which leaves me A on the far side of the complex or random street parking up to a block away. I know objectively, it's not a long distance, for me, walking to and from parking now eats a quarter to a third of the steps I have for a given trip this last couple of weeks and given how bad those two weeks have been physically while the able bodied people hog the shared parking.... I've only spoken to them on the phone, but I hate them now.

Tomorrow, I’m also short sleeped, this time to find out how much the check engine light is going to cost me.

* I've bailed out of AHS: Cult. It was a mix of problems. the first is that while it is important to do art about microaggressions, harassment, the terror that is the straight white conservative cis male, and the horror overtaking our country, this is too on the nose, and I spend my evenings documenting this stuff and have dealt with various versions of it all my life moving about in the world. The result is it's to preachy and preaching to the choir all at once. I might have been more receptive to watching this as entertainment in another year, but this is not the time to do it this way, or it is the time to do art about it, but a little more subtle. One or the other or both. Another problem has to do with some fundamental problems I tend to have with Ryan Murphy around race. Sometimes he does better than others, but it's an area where I don't trust him and nothing I've seen so far this season around race has made me happy. I am also really not trusting his handling of mental illness here. I am hoping it will get better, but I don't trust where this is going or that things will be handled well given past experience. (Look, I love his aesthetics and when he's on, he does some really interesting things. I have enjoyed a bunch of his other things, but he tends to be pretty problematic and sometimes the one balances the other out and sometimes it doesn't for me. YMMV).

Lastly, This whole thing is pretty triggery given my personal history, and with the first factor in play, this is not a good thing for me to be watching in combination. If I'm going to do something this rough to myself I'd rather take another crack at season two of Hannibal a that has a whole lot of things relative to my interests in exchange for a similar set of triggers. This is frankly not giving me anything back in exchange for dragging me through the worst of reddit while triggering me on my personal stuff. I had reached the bit when the cheeto brother was trying to get the woman with the phobias to let him in, doing all the horrible shit rapists and abusers do to women, playing on socialization, and I thought, "I would rather be scrubbing out the litter boxes. That at least results in clean litter boxes.

So I'm out. Maybe he'll do something amazing later, but I'm pretty sure this particular ride is not for me.

* I struggled with what to say about Will when it was on, my thoughts were complicated and not easy to put into words that would make good sense. I don't agree with everything in here, and I DID want a second season to explore the Will/Kit relationship. I also have a lot of thoughts about race in the show: the things they did well and the things I'm still really angry about. For the most part though, this did a better job than I could possibly do talking about the things I was struggling to put into words, and I'm very glad someone managed it.

* I do not care about which politicians view porn. I assume most of them at one time or another. The only time I care is if it is child pornography or the person is say, showing it to children, or viewing it somewhere it's imposing on other people. (I had a job one summer in an electronics store where the salesmen were frequently group watching porn in the back and would yell if I had to interrupt them to come sell a TV or whatever, and i had to eat lunch in a breakroom with all those breasts and vaginas staring at me, all of which I resented. I would have given no fucks if their homes were plastered with porn magazines and if they were jerking off at home, but I felt I shouldn't have to deal with it in a work environment, and I also felt if I had to work, so should they, and I especially shouldn't get yelled at for trying to get one of them to serve customers for the things I wasn’t allowed to sell them. WTF did they want me to tell the family wanting a new TV? Perhaps, "Sorry, all the salesmen are jerking off right now, so you'll have to wait until somebody cums?" Unless you work somewhere selling porn or live sex shows or the like, I feel like you shouldn't be required to watch other people masturbate. So no porn on the library computers where everyone is involved whether they want to be or not or on the computer at the Middle School, or... you get the idea). That's not the case here as far as I can tell. I do not like the man in question and find his politics disgusting, but he hasn't done anything wrong and I strongly disapprove of sex shaming people over private, consensual acts. Whatever he might or might not have done while watching that video is none of my business. I do not care either way, and I resent having to hear about it, particularly from supposedly leftish type people who very likely have looked at porn themselves. It's gross and hypocritical. Odds are this is the last mention I'm going to make about this particular instance, unless it turns out he was making interns watch him jerk it or something. Then, I care, but not for this.

* I was really irritated with myself for being foggy, slow, and headachey today, but then I remembered, oh right, I didn't just use all the spoons by bedtime yesterday, I also spent three hours coughing in the wee hours (likely the pneumococcal vaccine), and my body is also still dealing with the influenza jab. Given the givens, I'm actually doing remarkably well. I did wake up with the lungs clearing, so I have hopes of getting past things in the usual week. Again, these are temporary physical conveniences and well worth it given the consequences of NOT doing it.

* I just caught two parts of the Richard Burton three (?) part Cavett interview that blew me away as a child, which lead to my life long interest in him and his work.

* During my appointment, I complimented my Doctor on the PreP adverts, being a huge fan of harm reduction in all it's forms. The poking and prodding part of the appointment allowed for conversation, so we got into the medical ethics of things like Prep and needle exchange. My Doctor is about a decade younger than me, and the clinic does a lot in the way of HIV+ and addiction services. She is a fierce advocate for harm reduction. (Seriously, I adore my Doctor. She's enthusiastic about trans community health outreach, and she's really on top on my ridiculously complicated medical history. As someone who spent a huge chunk of my adult life fighting Doctors to convince them to actually, you know, provide medical care instead of ignoring shit, a Doctor who is cheerful and willing to help and non-discriminatory is a huge fucking deal.) Anyway, the Plague came up, by logical extension, and the lives saved by the aggressive needle exchange program in Seattle that has slowed HIV and Hep c transmission amoung users to next to nothing. For me, the AIDs epidemic was a horrifying disaster unfolding in real time coinciding roughly with my adolescence. When we were talking about Seattle during the worst of the pre-protase inhibitor days before needle exchange took hold,she said in this soft, sad tone, "So many bodies."

Yes. So many bodies. Anything that stops that, I'm all for. I never want to see that happening again, to any community. Even with modern drugs, long term survivors remain at risk of early death, depression, and dementia. It is so much better than when the young were falling like leaves in Autumn, but please, please, take care of yourselves out there. I would much rather live in a world where no one gets HIV any more and those who have it are well cared for.

* As I wrote this, I was watching Lily Tomlin gently, charmingly, but firmly calling Dick Cavett out for his sexism over and over in the course of an interview, keeping her tone light, but absolutely refusing to give way in a mid-’80′s interview.

* I have used nearly all the spoons, as in, as I right this, I've been sitting here with the shakes for 15 mins, trying to get it together enough to but food in the preheated oven. I made it on time to my doctor's appointment, it being so early there was no point in going to bed. This was one of those massive ones, were they do all the periodic monitoring except labs, some minor treatment stuff, and... vaccinations. Y'all know how pro-vaccine I am, and vaccines are pretty much keeping me alive at this point. My lungs were judged recovered enough from last week's Smoke Monster for me to get my yearly influenza, which generally makes me mildly ill for a weekish in exchange for me not getting knocked out for a month with influenza plus secondary infections for every random exposure I get, so is hella worth it for me. Given my medical situation I have had all the fragile old people vaccinations they offer whenever they become available, which most of y'all won't be worrying about until you're old enough for AARP membership. Apparently a new pneumococcal is out, and mine, being a decadish old, stopped covering me last Spring, as these things evolve. Keep in mine that before vaccines I was getting it every year, sometimes twice. I repeat, vaccines are our friends. Vaccinate your kids for their safety and those around them! Anyway. This vaccine is comparatively brutal, being a two shot dealio, like the Hep B vaccination. I'll get another when I go for Winter Labs. I am Really Feeling this one though. Still better than the lung infections and lung scaring the infections would cause, but It felt like a wound before I was half way home and I can't sleep on that side. with my pain resistance and background pain level, it takes something serious to be something that my nervous system insists is a serious problem. The flu vaccination site is below average tender for a flu shot. The Pneumonia is warm and tender. It's not a big deal unless it swell to golf ball size or the fever goes to 103, so do not panic. I do have a fever, a bit higher than flu vaccine's tiny elevation, but not even close to worrisome. It's just knocking me over though. I also spent waaaay more money than I could afford on mostly assorted lung meds. I really really need to do ebay this month as I'm expecting to be something like a hundred or more down on bills the way things are going, and with things like dish detergent apt to be running out.

I did get some sleep lying on my other side, but I woke enough before the alarm to prep for Squirrel's thing, that when I realized there would be no more sleep, I pushed myself into clothes and out of the house for forage, which was not particularly successful, alas, all bread and vegetables and nothing much else. We brought the forage in and I took Squirrel on an all over town scavenger hunt, which actually was successful. We didn't get exactly what he wanted, but we got close enough. It was good I went, as I know way better how to find cheap and second hand stuff. I even had coupons. We need to glue some stuff together, but I own gorilla glue, so it should be fine.

I am having trouble with the basics. I did get the forage away and the plants watered, just barely before the shakes got too bad. I washed the patio curtain last night, though, and that is a pain to put back together and remount and requires a ladder, which is terrible idea even if I weren't in tears at the ridiculously easy task of walking to the oven and back.

I do not know how much posting I will manage tonight, for which I am sorry.
