If You Think Your Vote Doesn’t Matter

Here’s what’s happening because people thought that exact thing last election.

‘A federal judge blocked a Trump administration rule to erase protections for transgender patients against discrimination by doctors, hospitals and health insurance companies.’

‘The Trump administration finalized plans yesterday to open up part of the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge in Alaska to oil and gas development. The decision ends six decades of protections for the refuge, the largest remaining stretch of wilderness in the United States.’

‘The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill became the first big university to move in-person classes online after new coronavirus outbreaks. Just one week into the semester, 177 students had tested positive, and hundreds of others were in quarantine because of possible exposure.’

‘Kristin Urquiza, Arizona student who wrote an impassioned obituary for her father that offered two causes of death: the coronavirus and ineptitude on the part of government officials.
Her most memorable line last night, speaking about her father: “His only pre-existing condition was trusting Donald Trump, and for that he paid with his life.” ‘

Re the virtual convention: ‘Slightly more inspiring than the Republican convention theme, ‘Gas protesters and throw mailboxes into the sea.’” — STEPHEN COLBERT’

My oh my oh my. After having a brief meltdow in an email to a friend last night, she called today and I actually went out. We went for a ride, had a frozen coffee and Dunkin’s and sat in the car with the doors open and the breeze blowing and chatted, just like normal life. Hoping this lasts me for a while because five months of this was getting to me. I went six months before, but I was very ill at the time. Am not ill now, just the back issue and the usual fibro, so five months of nothing was getting pretty hard to take. So thank you, my friend. Thank you. Lots of sanitizing and disinfected everything, keys, phone, glasses, wallet, and washed face mask upon returning home. Changed clothes, too. Caution, always caution. It is a beautiful, blue skies white fluffy clouds day, and being out amongst the greenery of nature in summer was just heaven. Happy Jean is happy.

The breeze that is blowing in my windows smells good. Like nature. Not an autumny, shuffle through the leaves smell, but there is a tinge of that there. It’s a good thing. After circling the black hole, yesterday, today, thanks to my very good friend, is a very good day. Situational depression.
