Our adorable albino Ken Doll of a VP Mike Pence claimed this week that the GOP Health Care Bill will strengthen Medicaid. Sure, cuts of $700 billion is a way to strengthen the program. Good job, liar. Why diss Medicaid when it is more cost effective than private insurance right now. Maybe I’m a little sore […]Read more "America First! as Long as You Mean Americans Killing Foreigners"
[a creative nonfiction but that was just rejected for publication] I spent the better part of the last 20 years letting three children suck the life out of me. They consistently depended on my help at all kinds of ungodly hours. Preschool aged mornings were the worst. I had twin girls, one of whom had […]Read more "The Lovely Eggs "

Today was a bad day. I had no good story to tell myself but instead felt like someone else was narrating a […]Read more "Mitch McConnell Officially Makes my Shit List."
