i had better refunds under Raygun & Bushit Jr than i did when Cliton or obombya was pres. So political party don't matter. Still i had better health benefits under Cliton and worse ones under obombya.

In the end, all politicians are crooks.

Agreed with xc!!!! Razz Exactly what I've been saying all along.

Maybe some of them are better with money than others. Billy the Clintonoid was, that's for sure and so was Ronald the Raisin. I could always get a job in the 80's and 90's no matter how many of them I went thru, even if I was fired! I got hours too, as many as I wanted. Obama, sadly, could do nothing to fix Bush Jr.'s ludicrous economy and I highly doubt Trumpizoid even cares, even if he could fix it. Razz

Best thing to do is try to fix my own life and finances best I can...in my own way. So far Trump hasn't touched my SSD(touching wood), although he's threatened a lot of cuts. I even got a raise this year which shocks me considering he's been in office for a whole year! He can't really mess with taxes already paid though, altho he did try to take away Nick's mom's and aunt's SS before they fought to get it back. I THINK Trump was behind that altho obviously he's not working alone. Many in the government hate that people get any kind of assistance, even those of retirement age. And both Nick's mom and aunt are over 65 of course.

It really sucks for people that age anyway. Medical insurance and other coverage actually LOWERS when they pass 65. Ludicrous!!! Frown I'm not far away from that age either. I hope I at least have a decent job before then! Even if I won't ever be able to retire, the way things are going... Razz

Im not a big fan of Obama..
but we must remember...
He & the Democrats turned the worst economic disaster since the Great Depression

into a modest economic downturn.

Unfortunately they werent allowed to solve the actual problem.

thank the RepubliCANTs for that.

Agreed. Say what you will about Obama but that was pretty impressive. And yeah, he could have done more, a LOT more and maybe people wouldn't have been as disappointed. If he hadn't had to fight so hard to do it, with government shutdowns happening all the time cuz of the whiney tea party babies...he could have actually turned this country into something we could ALL be proud of. Maybe. But at least there wouldn't be so many ridiculous roadblocks including Trump's obsession with his birth certificate. Roll Eyes

Here's hoping someone else will be able to plow through whatever Trump does to this country, in 2020. My guess? We're seeing the twilight of the U.S. government. I think the only way this country will have any structure in the future is if the Native Americans rise up and take their friggin' land back. Then THEY can show us how to run things!!! smash Razz Big Grin

Not much activity hereabouts lately.

Kate, Argy, BrucE... i would think there might be more ppl show up as the year begins to wind down.

i'm going to start watching Xena again in a couple weeks so that should get me posting more often.

Last night, I had some people over to shoot some scenes for a movie I'm making. I cleaned the hell outta this house before they got here. It really felt awesome to get it all done. My body was aching and singing a requiem mass by the time I was done lol but the sight and the clean smells of the house gave me some strength plus the movie...it's great to be doing a creative project again.

About ten minutes ago, Julius, Crystonian, Rose or one of these wild and crazy cats, decided to put some "fragrance" into my nice, clean living room lol. Sadly, we still have to keep the litterboxes in here because the basement has holes in the walls that need filling and we don't want any of these little furry rascals getting lost in the walls. I still remember Speranza getting stuck in the ceiling in 2015 when she crawled into a little space in the second bedroom closet. I couldn't find her for two days and thought she'd gotten outside. Then I heard her meowing from downstairs. Fortunately the ceiling in the basement is made of sheet rock, so I was able to tear a hole in it and set her free. But I haven't recovered from that, at all!

Last night while the people were here, we'd put the litterboxes in the bedroom but if we kept them up there all the time, we'd have no room to walk around. (living room is bigger). Ah well. A friend of ours offered to fix the basement walls for us with no charge, since John did him a favor one night when he and his girlfriend's car broke down. John drove them all the way back to Northeast Philly, which is a bit of a distance from where we live. This was Halloween and we'd had plans to give candy to the kids and watch a scary movie but it never happened. Oh well. When I get that guy over here, we'll be able to let the cats downstairs again.

I just wish I could afford a storage unit right now. There is SO much crap in that basement, and these damn cats like to crawl into boxes and mess with things lol. We have too much stuff. Maybe tossing it away is the best bet, but we also need more furniture as half our stuff got so old we had to put it out to pasture.

The simple pleasures of homeownership! I still need to fix a hole in the concrete outside our house before we can qualify for home insurance. THAT we can't do without. Ah well.

Hope everyone is doing well, and at least ate some good candy on Halloween!!!! Big Grin

Creative projects are good. i'm still writing the rough drafts of my novels. Books 1 & 2 rough drafts are done, 470 & 540 pages respectively. i am 720 pages into book 3, i will probably make it into two separate books once i reach a certain amount of pages during a good place to stop in the story. There might be 3 more books still to come.

i don't know what will become of it when i finish editing the complete rough draft. i will need another edit (maybe Argy, maybe my nephew's wife who is also skilled at that). Then i will have to decide whether to pursue publishing or push the ideas involved to some network (this suggestion has been brought to me already) or just have a few personal copies printed for ppl.
i might even be dead by the time it's ready. Editing by me is going to be a slow process, i know.

That's cool, xc!! Smile I can proofread spelling and grammar pretty well, if all else fails.

I used to use A-1 Writing and Editing Services(I think that's what it's still called) for a thorough and honest critique. I had a novel series I'd self published onto Amazon, using CreateSpace.com

Since you mentioned publishing, just a bit of feedback from someone who's tried this. Whatever you do, if you want your books to sell and make you some money as well as be enjoyed and remembered, etc? I don't recommend self-publishing right away. Find an agent and get them to push your book to the right houses. Of course, some people do great with self-publishing, even make a decent living on writing. Being able to market oneself is helpful. Speaking for myself, I suck at self-promotion lol. If I had to do it all over again, I'd have gone the agent route. There's actually a rule when sending submissions to publishing houses that the books can't have previously been self-published. But who knows, you might have great luck with it. Weigh your options, get feedback from others too. It sounds like you've done a lot with this. It'd be great to see you on the shelves of Barnes and Noble or in Amazon! Smile

Best of everything with it. Keep us posted!
