There was no interest with first group of paintings. But, I'm desperate, so here is the third set. If you e interested in any of them DM and we can discuss favorable cost and shipping terms. Proceeds go to my legal defense fund. My next court date is Thursday.

I'm not sure if anyone on here still cares, and I wouldn't blame you if you didn't, trust. My depression and illnesses have swallowed me up and I get anxiety even thinking about logging on because I used have people on here who cared deeply and I have alienated most of them.
I have done the same IRL and have literally no one out here who cares anymore. I have a major court date on the 17th and need to get my lawyers some to keep them from dropping the case and while I have some, it's not nearly enough.

"I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but World War IV will be fought with sticks and stones."
- Albert Einstein
The war being fought today by Vladimir Putin's Russia will not end well for anyone. Not for the world. Not for Europe. Not for America.
It obviously will not end well for the Ukraine.
But, contrary to Putin's personal hopes and belief, it will especially not end well for Russia.
This is a nightmare of a war on so many levels and too few seem to understand the implications or the possible ramifications

Yesterday there were dozens of Trump supporters protesting along a major traffic artery here in Kenosha, one that runs directly in front of our largest hospital; a hospital once again filled to bursting with Covid-19 admissions.
They were protesting all covid-19 mandates.
They do not want them anywhere in public, and, it seems, especially not schools.
No social distancing.
No vaccine requirements.
I know a nurse who works in that building who battled Covid and who lost her own mother to the virus.
This was a shameful display.

I am not sure when I will be able to post next.
It's happened. Whatever chance my life had circumstances and bad luck have finally stripped away.
I have been literally thrown out of where I was living.
Most of my possessions are ruined. I have a negative bank balance .
I have severe health problems that I have not even begun to address and I have no place to go.
The Magas in the region I live in were often fairly well off financially. Well off enough to pay both arms and legs for the array of very expensive Trump signs, Trunp flags, and other types of political detritus to fill their yards and windows and automobiles with.

It has been over a week since @Instacart / @instashoppers deactivated my shopper a٪ccount and took away my only source of income.
Despite having @instacart respond and forward my case to Trust and Safety seeking to reconsider the case, they did little more than mock me.
Tonight, after having to inform @instaCart that no one had gotten back to me about a new appeal, I finally received a response.
Upon opening the email I was gutted.
The response I received tonight is the exact same form letter I received originally.
Word 4 word.

I am so broken by @instacart that it's almost hard to describe. After two years with this platform, and after over 1000 shops I was summarily deactivated three days ago. It is my ONLY source of income.
My initial devastation has been replaced by pure shock at the treatment I have received since.
I was informed of my deactivation through a form letter email that did not outline a specific problem, but asked me to defend against it anyway in the single appeal I was allowed.

My mom used to tell people that I was the easiest pregnancy she ever had, but the I paid her back by being her most difficult birth.
I weighed nearly 11 lbs at birth and my mom said she struggled with managing my weight for my first eighteen months. By one I was 45 lbs..
This might amuse some who know me given I have struggled with keeping weight on for most of my life, but I got a strange flu when I was almost two and lost the weight.
It never came back.
My mom insisted that I "struggled to be born, and then struggled everyday after."

"He's not just unprepared -- he's temperamentally unfit to hold an office that requires knowledge, stability and immense responsibility."
All of it.
We are where we are today because of the mistakes we made then. Period.
It could have and would have- gone so very differently.
This is true whether you believe Trump actually won fairly, or, that he and Russia stole the election in 2016.
We fucked up either way.

What I know for sure: We expend too much time and effort putting things off, setting things aside, and storing things away.
Waiting for a special occasion to drink a bottle of wine means it might not ever be drank.
Life, it turns out, is is own special occasion.
If Trump and the Coronavirusbhave taught us anything it's that we should take nothing for granted, and assume nothing.
There are so many things that we cast aside for tomorrow: trips, learning something new, making a needed change, but what does waiting get us?

Donald Trump never had the support of the majority of the people in this country. Not ever.
Maybe where you live he did. But, and this probably cuts to the heart of the issue, a world exists outside of your personal wants, beliefs, and demographics.
Once you wrap your mind around that fact then you just might see that no poll, not even Fox News own polling, ever indicated that he enjoyed support outside of his base, namely you, though, granted, that base proved to be disturbingly large and loyal beyond reason.

What I know for sure: Every person who has decided to vote for Trump knows EXACTLY who he is and what they are voting for, period.
At best they're voting for a hypocritical and opportunistic liar and charlatan who has triggered a foul and dangerous kind of partisanship.
But we know that the best case scenario is not really what's going on here.
Because the only thing truly different with Trump from most of the GOP is his very public embrace of some of the worst elements of the alt-right (white supremacy) and his refusal to disavow it, ever.

I listen to a lot of podcasts. I mean a lot. It's how I spend my time when I'm not writing or politicking.
I've noticed a trend through many of the political Podcasts I listen to of reporters revisiting white men whom they have interviewed periodically this election cycle.
In almost every case these are men who had voted for Trump in 2016 and were now seemingly conflicted about that choice, and, more importantly, were unsure about how they would vote in 2020.
In most cases these men sounded reasonable and genuinely concerned about this nation.

"If Trump announced that the color yellow was actually the color blue and that the media and the schools system had hoodwinked us all, then the color yellow would become blue to every Trump voter. I'm convinced of that." - Jerry D. Kenosha, WI.
I've been talking to voters here in Kenosha, Wisconsin for about ten days now. The conversations have been wide-ranging and deeply informative. I've always worn a face mask during these conversations and always maintained proper social distancing.
I have learned a lot.

If you are enjoying our collective lurch toward a literary level dystopia then by all means don't vote.
You have much to look forward to I promise.
If state promoted racial animosity, that hopes to turn everyone into combatants, is your thing, then don't vote.
If you like to watch others being gouged by predatory lenders with no oversight then don't vote.
I thought you were smarter and more sophisticated than to buy into misogynistic tropes like "Hillary Clinton was the most unpopular..."
I understand that by being a member of one of the groups who most need Clinton to always have been hated you are biased.
I know that it would be easier for people in your profession if what you said were actually true, but it is false. And saying this lie out loud is irresponsible and, for the record, completely unnecessary.
Don't even know where to begin here, because your database is flawed

When asked about a peaceful transfer of power Trump said he could not promise one w/ paper ballots in such wide use. There are so many problems with the ballots, he complained. He's fine, of course, with an election run only by electronic ballot thoug.
Venture to guess why?
He argued w/o the ballots there would be "no peaceful transfer of power, and frankly, no transfer. It would be a continuation."
He knows this because he knows the Russians will successfully hack the vote in his favor. And he knows it will works because it did once.

I've had a crush on @1NatalieMaines for 25+ years. Pretty impressive given I am gay. But, if you're paying attention you know that I often get crushes on extraordinary women. Hell, I've been in love with @LoveTinaTurner, @BettyBuckley, & @HillaryClinton most of my life.
I bring this up because @thechicks newest album "Gaslighter" has been getting me through a lot lately.
But it's also a kick in the gut.
I despise cheaters. Infidelity sucks y'all.
I know, It's been done to me so often in the past much of this album is about infidelity.

This seals it.
2020 is now at par with 2016 in ranking as the Worst Year Ever.
I am crying so hard right now I can barely breathe.
