I see folks are now embracing Joe Walsh like who he is doesn't matter. Obama-attacking Tea Party gun nut climate denialist.

Jaysus people. Stop running to every shiny object with a white d**k just because you screwed up 2016 and couldn't get it together to vote for Hillary.
On abortion Walsh said there is never a medically necessary reason for abortion, which prompted the American Congress of Obstetricians and Gynecologists to issue a statement of rebuttal.
As a congressman, Walsh met with Marine Le Pen, who is, incredibly, to the right of Trump. In 2018 Walsh supported the hoax "kindergaurdians" to train toddlers to use guns.
Walsh failed to pay child support to his first wife, who then sued him..They reached a settlement agreement, but then he renegged a year later, claiming he was unemployed.

Frying pan/fire, folks.

As you cheer on yet another fundamentally unfit candidate for president, keep in mind Walsh could actually be elected. He checks all the GOP boxes but cleans up better, has normal hair, only one ex wife and is only 57. It's not a stretch.
The ways in which #JoeWalsh are just like Trump (except younger and way better looking) are manifold. In his last failed run for Congress, he attacked Tammy Duckworth's heroism. She gave two legs and part of an arm for America.
And you know, #JoeWalsh is a birther, so he also has that in common with Trump. He would tweet Obama "happy Muslim birthday," among other things. Regardless, you DO know that's all about Islamophobia and delegitimizing the first black POTUS.

Being read the long domestic violence clause by the not-very-pleasant male caseworker made me start crying thinking about women trying to escape and he did not stopped talking,which is surreal. Then he mentioned The Wife's name and I had to say deceased and that was gutting.
So then the caseworker notes that I am African American. And for the bazillionth time had to try to change my race to white. My zip code is in a 99% Black neighborhood, so it's definitely true that there are Black zip codes. The caseworker was dubious that I am not Black.
I'd actually forgotten (*blocked out*) how dehumanizing this process of getting/renewing poor people "benefits" is. Yet 13% of Americans overall are living in poverty, and some groups have higher rates of poverty--under 18 it's 17%. So maybe the US needs to do better.

Oh,burn in freaking hell.

#ClubQ shooter’s father: “They started telling me about the incident,a shooting...And then I go on to find out it’s a gay bar. I got scared, ‘Shit, is he gay?’ And he’s not gay, so I said, phew…I am a conservative Republican.”
“I praised him for violent behavior really early. I told him it works... You’ll get immediate results."
His son killed five people and wounded at least 24.
There's more. Including familial support for the January 6 insurrection.

Left here this morning for work, upset after a series of exchanges with people trolling me off #TheWife's obituary in which I noted that she died suddenly. This blew up after and some journalists contacted me to talk about it. I said it had defiled her memory and my grief.
I also said that these people with their anti-vaxxer agendas are not just benign cranks. These are dangerous people who don't care that their conspiracy theories could literally kill people--and in fact have.
This group of folks fixating on me and infiltrating my mentions truly added to my grief. I know the COVID vaccine is not what caused The Wife to die suddenly. As I told one reporter, I had been sharing The Wife's cancer story for support and to open dialogue for others.

I got a text to do pre-check-in for #TheWife's chemo scheduled for Monday as I always did. A glitch in the system that sent me into a paroxysm of sobbing, calling to her and feeling as if I my heart would explode from the searing pain of her loss. Grief is an undertow.
Sunday has been the hardest day. Sundays have been hard for me since childhood, but this Sunday was excruciating. There was no one here all day. Just me and the vastness of the empty space where The Wife should be. Her presence was so huge, even sick she was so dynamic.
The Wife was so funny all the time. And we were funny together. It got us through the worst times. But our love for each other was huge--a cocoon,but never suffocating. It kept us safe from all the terriblenesses of her cancer,my illness, the relentlessness of homophobia.

7 days, 18 hours, 39 minutes ago my beloved, known on here as #TheWife, died suddenly of cardiac arrest. Many knew she was valiantly fighting a rare, aggressive cancer. I wrote this obit in tribute to her and us.

Many have already read this, but others have not. Friends, family, students and colleagues--please post on the site if you feel able. The messages are amazing and comforting. I am adrift in my grief and so grateful for everyone's support. Y'all are THE best. Thank you.
The Wife loved cats. She spent years helping me run our cat shelter until my paralysis made it infeasible to continue. But she continued to maintain the feral colony until these last months. Her cats, our cats, the colony cats will all miss her.😿

Navigating widowhood --what a peculiar 19th century word--is itself shocking. I reached out to a widow and a widower I know from us following each other on here. Both famous, both incredibly generous with their counsel, each trying to keep me from being pulled under.
Grief is an undertow. She should be in the bed next to me. She shouldn't have left me. She promised she'd beat this. I promised I'd protect her. I said I'd take care of her, that I wouldn't let anything bad happen to her. But if I'd protected her, wouldn't she still be here?
The foxes have been calling every night since The Wife left me. Deep and mournful, a plaintive question for which there is no answer. Why:? Why did this happen to us and all the other us-es to whom it has happened? Why haven't we found a way to stop this disease yet?
