Here is what Joe Kennedy III has to say about the new healthcare bill the Republicans are proposing - I am going to keep an eye on this guy. He is going to be important. For sure. He sent this out over Obama's mailing list but he has been fighting the good fight in Congress. He is in the House of Representatives for Massachusetts. 

Mercy.

It is about how we care for the least among us -- not how we treat the powerful.

It calls on us to feed the hungry, clothe the naked, and comfort the sick.

It is kindness. It is grace.

There is no mercy in a system that makes health care a luxury. There is no mercy in a country that turns its back on those that are most in need of protection: the elderly, the poor, the sick, and the suffering.

There is no mercy in a cold shoulder to the mentally ill.

There is no mercy in a policy that takes for granted the sweat, the tears, and the sacrifice that working Americans shed every day so that they might care for their families' basic needs: food, shelter, health, and hope for tomorrow.

So when Speaker Ryan called his repeal bill "an act of mercy" last week, I knew I had to speak out.

It is an act of malice.

We, as Americans, are better than this. Every working family deserves better than this. And when millions of people have their access to health care put on the chopping block, we have to stand up to this.

I have become an MSNBC junkie. I don't know if I can make it through four years of this Trump Administration and I hope I don't have to. I am really hoping that Trump gets impeached and does not last the whole duration of his presidency. I just have to say it here. I really am hoping that.

This is the third week and it is absolute insanity.

I am too tired to give details and it is almost too much to keep up with.

Hope all is well with you in your part of the world. It has turned into a dystopian nightmare in the US. It really has.

I have finished my Slashy Valentine story! Hurrahs! It is done and posted! Woot. I am so happy. Yays! I will post the link to the archive when the reveal happens on Valentine's Day.

I don't think I am going to watch the Super Bowl tomorrow. I am not really into it. My parents are pulling for the Patriots but then again Atlanta has never won before so it would be great to see them win it. I don't really care who wins. I do like the ads but I can catch those online anytime.

I am heading into a really busy time at work and have to get it in gear. I will and it will be fun. I like being busy at work - the alternative is really boring so this is way better. We are going to have some changes so that will be good too. We need them.

Anyhoo. Just a quick post for the week. Hope all is well with you there.

Cheers!

Here is my word meter for the Slashy Valentine -



I don't have a sense of how long the story is going to be but I better wrap it up soon as Red just sent out the warning email! Gotta get it done!

So that is what is going on. If you follow me on FB you know I am not pleased with what is going on in Washington. More on that later.

Happy weekend to all.

The incoming President is not my President. Barack Obama is MY President. I just got this letter to my email because I have written to the White House on matters that concern me. I always get a response and it is always on point. I cannot tell you how discouraged I am about this transition. But this is what the letter said today.
-------------
One of the most important things I’ve done as President is read messages from Americans like you. And whether you sat down to write me a letter back in 2009 or just last week, I wanted to say thank you for writing.

Letters like yours have given me the chance to hear the real stories that make up the ever changing narrative of America. They are stories of your setbacks and successes, your fears and your hopes not just for today—but for the country and the world we’ll leave to our children and our grandchildren. I want you to know that I was listening. I heard your stories. And you made me a better President.
In 2014, a young mom took a chance and shared her family’s story with me. She said she knew that “staying silent about what you see and what needs changing never makes any difference.” She was right. And so, while serving you has been the greatest privilege of my life, I want you to know that when

I leave the White House, I’ll still hold the most important title of all: that of citizen.

And as a proud American citizen, I believe that we are a constant work in progress. Our success has never been certain. None of our journey has been preordained. There’s always been a gap between our highest ideals and the reality we witness every day. But what makes us exceptional—what makes us Americans—is that we have fought wars, and passed laws, and reformed systems, and organized unions, and staged protests, and launched mighty movements to close that gap. To bring the promise and the practice of America into closer alignment. To form that more perfect union.

So our collective future depends on our collective willingness to uphold our duties as citizens: to vote, to speak out, and to stand up for others knowing that each of us is only here because somebody, somewhere, stood up for us. And for the rest of my days, I promise I will be right there alongside you, continuing to do my part to build a better, more prosperous, more diverse and inclusive America—an
America with a future full of hope.

From all of us in the Obama family—thank you for writing.

All the best,
Barack Obama

Here is a quick update on my Slashy Valentine. I have started it and hopefully I am about half way done. You never know with these things. :P



I don't know how long it will be. That is just a guess. Hope you all are doing well on yours! Post updates!

I lit the menorah twice tonight - once with my neighbor and once at home. So double whammy. Happy Hanukkah all. It is night 6 here. Two more to go!

phyncke: (Anime Me)
A friend just texted me and I just saw this tweet -

https://twitter.com/sergeybratus/status/812403796911554561

LJ's servers have been moved to Russia which leads me to have lots of security concerns about this platform. I am wondering if any of you feel the same way or have any ideas about what to do about this. I cross post most of my entries to LJ anyway but I still have to log in here to read the flist. I am worried about the security of this platform and LJ seems like a relic. My friend who is more up on these things - urged me to abandon the site because it is a security concern and there is a risk in using the site.

So I wonder if there is another site for fandom things or if people are interested in migrating to dreamwidth which is a similar platform. I already have an account over there.

Anyway. I wanted to see what the feeling is and if you even knew about this. Thoughts, feelings and concerns? I think this is a real issue and may effect my ongoing presence here.

I welcome comments on this topic and really want to know what you think.

Edit -
Here are some additional references and posts to read -

Hey all - it is time for my Hanukkah posts. I am a little behind though I have been lighting the menorah this year. I did two nights already - so I am catching up with the photos for you. Have been posting on Twitter and Facebook but forgot to post my photos here and want to share with you. Here are the first and second nights for you and will post a third tonight. There are eight crazy nights to Hanukkah.

phyncke: (Green Pattern)
Very happy holidays to you and yours this holiday season! I hope that you are having a great time celebrating this season with family and friends.

I am not traveling this year and am staying here in Berkeley to hang with friends. I have the week off between Christmas and New Years and have some projects I would like to get done. I also need to rest off the computer as my shoulder hurts - strain from too much time on the computer and so I am hoping to rest that. I might go get a massage this week and get the kinks worked out.

So I am looking forward to time off, getting things done and relaxed times. Yay!

Merry Christmas
Happy Hanukkah
Happy Kwanzaa
Happy New Year
Happy Solstice

All things combine to make this a great time of year!
