With the full-scale planned attacks on health insurance, the National Endowment for the Arts and Meals on Wheels, its hard to find any silver-linings
Between the Congressional Budget Office report that predicts 24 million Americans losing their health insurance if the Republican party has its way, and Trumps budget that eradicates the National Endowment for the Arts and even guts Meals on Wheels, this week has been just as horrible as all the rest. No break for us!
At least its Friday.
Glass half full
This week, Scotus justice and feminist icon extraordinaire Ruth Bader Ginsburg celebrated her 84th birthday. When the going gets tough, just remember that Justice Ginsburg is not only doing one of the most important jobs in the country, shes doing it after completing a workout that would likely knock you on your ass.
What Im RTing
Who Im reading
Nona Willis Aronowitz on the woke misogynist; the story of coworkers who switched names to see how theyd be treated when they were seen as a different gender (you can guess the answer) and Hadley Freemans wonderful interview/profile of writer Ariel Levy on her new memoir.
What Im watching
How outraged I am
Im more deflated than outraged this week, so on a scale from 1 to 10, Ill put myself at a solid 6. Bring on the anti-depressants!
