Another hot, crickets buzzing, chicken scratching, hang-the-clothes-on-the-line sort of day.
Nothing new to report here at all but after a quick perusal of the news I will say this:
1. About Donald Trump- I just, I don't, I can't...WHAT THE FUCKING FUCK????!!!!
2. Bill Cosby should be in jail. Free fifty non-violent drug offenders serving time and give him a big old cell worthy of his status and don't ever let him out.
Son of a goddam bitch, he's a sick motherfucker and if he'd ever come forth and said, "Dude, I'm a sick motherfucker and I need help," I might be inclined to look a bit more leniently on his ass but he never has and he never will unless he actually is facing jail time (and I doubt that'll happen) and he has caused more pain with his actions, denials, and cover-ups than he'll ever know.
To be abused sexually in any way and then to gather and find the courage to come forward and ask for justice and then to be called a liar, a trouble-maker, an attention and money-seeker is to be abused twice.
Bill Cosby was THE father figure of his time. He based his entire career on being a father-figure. He had power, money, and lawyers. He had cool and cuddly sweaters and ate pudding with children on TV and made funny faces. He presented himself as wise, kind, just, and above all criticism. He was the dad we all wanted.
And he made a lot of women believe he was truly interested in them, their careers, their families, their struggles, their educations. Just as a good father would.
And then he drugged and raped them.
What else is there to say?
3. Dear Scott Walker,
Anyone who says that homosexuality may be a choice has obviously, at some point in their lives, struggled with his or her own feelings concerning their own sexuality.
This is just my theory but I think it's probably a valid one and far more easily proven than my theory about humans being a genetic experiment between apes and aliens.
Although they'll get to the bottom of that one one of these days.
Okay. That's all. I think I'm going to try and work outside some today. I realize how important that is to me- to be outside doing things in my yard and my garden- and how it's something I need to do, no matter the weather. I may not do as much of it when it's this hot, but any little bit is better than nothing and my soul appreciates the effort.
Be well, y'all.
