An Update in the legal term “Lunacy” is Required.

Trump’s leadership is an exaggeration in dysfunction, and scary as hell.

Mary Margaret

The MAGA’s voice and posturing have obscured the lines between fact, information and elevated ignorance to stupid and currently border on lunacy.

Ignorance Definition: Lacking knowledge about something or deliberate disregard for information regarding facts or events. (I’m calling stupid on this one).

Stupid definition: “slow of mind; obtuse, given to unintelligent decisions or acts; acting in an unintelligent or careless manner.” Example: Trump Rally.

We are all ignorant at times about issues, but choosing to remain that way is stupid.

Given today’s access to information, stupid is a treatable condition but comes with a caveat – responsibility. Taking responsibility for seeking reliable sources for information is time-consuming.  Accepting Twitter or Facebook blathering is unreliable. Many of the tweets are old information or from sources that are questionable.

Unfortunately, some of our elected officials have saturated the stratosphere with examples of ignorance and stupidity and advanced to lunacy. If a visual is required check out Louie Gohmert.

Lunacy: “Unsoundness of mind sufficient to incapacitate one for civil transactions: a former legal term.”

It’s time to update legal terms to include lunacy.

Year-end Reflections

As we come to the end of the year, we are drawn to look back. The amount of time spent will be determined by the events and how much we were affected.

Personal events quickly come to mind. What has taken place around us?

As we look at events, we find ourselves starting down the “rabbit hole”. It is easy to avoid reflecting on anything that does not appear to affect us personally.

Many excuses can be offered.

I have everything I need; I am too old to receive much damage from what is taking place.

If it becomes a problem someone will fix it; it’s not my problem. There exist uneven portions of “the good, bad and the ugly.”

Unfortunately, the year-end reflection can teach us all lessons.

Whether or not we choose to acknowledge their existence, they deserve attention. If our individual behavior can make things better, we should do our part.

Happy New Year

Nothing Says Love Like a Kitten

There were many reasons not to get a pet, but reason flies out the window when one picks you.

We decided when Sybil, our cat of seventeen years died that would be it for us; no more pets. Beloved spouse’s grief was such that he was adamant about being pet-free.

After a year, unbeknown to the beloved spouse, late at night, I checked out the cats for adoption online, but none really spoke to me, reinforcing the decision to remain pet-free.

Okay, if I happened to find a British Shorthair for adoption, then maybe. The likelihood of finding one of those was akin to Mitch McConnell expressing undying devotion to Nancy Pelosi.

I visited the pet store during adoption events, but none appealed to me. Beloved spouse, a sucker for anything with four legs and a tail, avoided these events, except for that fateful day on the way to the gym. I casually mentioned I would like to check out the cats for adoption at the pet store; just to see––.

A crowd had gathered around a certain bad boy exhibitionist preening, yawning and batting a toy in his crate. He was over the top adorable and made eye contact with me.

I told myself he was so adorable; he probably wouldn’t be available after our workout- but if he was ––.

I am convinced the cat waited for us. Maxwell has made himself at home and for the most part, resides in the beloved spouse ‘s man cave.

Beloved spouse ordered a special house to ensure Maxwell has complete privacy taking care of his personal needs.

And Max is computer literate. He has discovered functions on my laptop that confound the experts who have come to enjoy my daily online help chats.
