In the 60s I thought 'we' were altogether and things would improve like more liberal. So many hippies they all must of died of overdoses. I thought they were our future; judges, lawyers, in the system to change things. That's what my innocent exuberance imagined. Just like the song.

I think about these issues at times . . . nothing changed, or very little.

@Gwendolyn2018 They all went home, back to mommy, church, no drugs, eating right, better homes than the Joneses, but one thing remains they can't freaking cook.

@K9Kohle789 I have been away from California (where I lived for 40 years) for 24 years and have not see any of the people I knew from high school for a loooong time. Via Facebook, I know that a seemingly disproportionate number of them have died. I also saw a picture of one of the biggest "hippies" of the school--she was working for a bank and was the very picture of corporate America. I dunno if any of them can cook!

@Gwendolyn2018 I figure they left home young, ate no meat mostly veggies and fruit so what would they know about cooking? Except pot does get you pretty hungry.

@K9Kohle789 my son can cook and so can his wife! However, in part, it is because they both worked in restaurants.

SCOTUS has become another political arm. They are using their so called powers of translations into become ones of weaponry.

Totally agree.

Their evil deeds are far from done. [nbcnews.com]

I saw this earlier--WTF???

I've been pissed off for thirty years. I'm starting to run out.

We gotta keep going!

My pissed off mood against SCOTUS is 24/7

Yup.

If we find in the future that church and state are no longer separated the only action is to tax the churches. This move also brings up the anger I have when the school wants to teach my Johnny all about Jebus. I will have a different belief about Jebus than what they are wanting to teach him. WOW! Would this idea really open up a big can of worms.

I'm with you!

The coach had left the state. The case was clearly taken to institute the Christian nationalist agenda.

. . . better to be pissed-off than to be pissed-on 🙂

But I--and all supporters of pro-choice/separation of church and state--are being pissed on.

@Gwendolyn2018 . . . no shortage of pro-lifers who think they were 'pissed-on' for the last 40+ years.

Elections have consequences.
I hope women/minorities will be sufficiently pissed-off in Nov and 2024 and elect others to support pro-choice efforts.

I'm staying pissed off.
I can maintain this through this November, and through 2024.
As long as it takes.
Everyone needs to stay angry and let it motivate them to work to correct this bullshit.
We must all vote in the midterms.
We must vote out ALL republicans, at EVERY level.
They're trying to pack local levels with republicans.
Get them ALL out.

Frustration and hopelessness/helplessness cannot be permitted to keep any of us from doing everything we can to turn this around.
It's not too late, YET.

I'm with you, sister!

We got Gerrymandered into a 95%Maga district. 😡

I agree with you. Next the whole separation of church and state will come down.

You can clock that up as dead and buried until at least three Justices are dead or too sick mentally to serve. By then, depending on how the 2022 and 2024 elections go, we will be in a contest with the Taliban and Iran to see who enforces Sharia law the best and how many beheadings and stoning take place in a month.

Sigh. What kind of world will my grandchildren live in?

@Gwendolyn2018 one much different than the one we fought for in our youth. All the gains in human rights we gained will need to be fought for another time.

@Gwendolyn2018 It makes me even more relieved and glad that I never had kids..

@TomMcGiverin I do not regret having kids and my grandkids are my delight, but I feel hopeless in trying to make the world a better place for them.

@Barnie2years it is like Sisyphus rolling the rock uphill; we make some strides and then, the rock rolls back down, crushing people on its way.

@Gwendolyn2018 I share your feelings of hopelessness. I think people our age are going to spend our remaining years as mostly helpless witnesses of a dystopian nightmare of which we are also victims in it.

@TomMcGiverin Sigh.

@Gwendolyn2018 Indeed..
