THE AMERICAN HEALTH SYSTEM HAS US - EATING OUR OWN FLESH 4-20
I dont have a doctor. I dont need one. I am magnificently healthy. Then . . . 8 days into Los Angeles Covid-19 shutdown, I got a pinched nerve in my back (Piriformis Syndrome). By nightfall I was in delirium. Call . . . who? The House Doctor. $675. Plus. Cash first. I had no choice.



The pain was so intense, I felt like that civil war soldier having his leg cut off without any anesthesia.

The money is transferred. Finally, a doctor arrives with a shot of Taradol. Male? Female? I don’t know....

WHY I VOTED FOR BERNIE SANDERS 3-20
We vote for our own best interests and we should. The way I see it is - if the people around me were safer, less stressed, less threatened with loses and illnesses; if they could sleep better, not burdened with unpayable loans - theyd be kinder and definitely happier. Then, that would actually be better for me too.

I don’t give advice because I recognize that everyone has a valuable point of view. We all matter.
I am just one tree in the forest, wanting to belong. At heart, I am a conservative which is why I think progressively (maybe eliminatin...

HE IS THE ONE (original version) 6-19
We do have a leader to guide us out of this morass, this backwash of deceptions that was the 2016 election. This embarrassment to Americans -- such that one of my friends, when going abroad had to say: NoIm Canadian.

Yes, there is someone with a voice so clear and calm who sees the big picture, the magnanimity that is America, who has a monumental intelligence, a view of the world possibly comparable to Churchill. He might do better than John Kennedy (though w...

REVOLUTION - needed 5-19
If ever there was an uglier spectacle, the Met Gala 2019 tops the list. An unwatchable, embarrassing parody, parading second list celebrities with their toadies, while being urgently fawned over by reluctant photographers in this hapless exposure of empty self-importance. [Chrissy Teigen I dont know why Im here]

BUILT LIKE A BRICK SHITHOUSE 2-19
I was once described as - built like a brick shithouse. Lo and behold, it may have been true. However before anyone takes offense about something that happened 35, 60 years ago, be it my body or another's blackface, let's look at the history, usage and meaning behind this comment.

DELEGATE - You don't need to do all that stuff you've been doing. Become the boss you've always wanted.

AMERICA - Not a Place For Women and Children 3-18
We must choose between the NRA-created mayhem or our kids.

Kids like survivor Emma Gonzales who is most capable of leading us out of the obtuseness perpetrated by a class of fossilized, bazookas-for-brains nincompoops hiding behind 19th century laws which were about muskets not AR-15s.

MELTDOWN 1-18
It started with a cough. The middle of the night, eyeball busting, hour long, get me to the ER room pronto coughing! Well, actually, no, it happened one half hour after I was egregiously turned down, for the third time, by the local city attorney after endeavoring to defend my hard-working tenants against a corporate invader on their street. This invader was using predatory, greedily motivated, guerilla tactics that choked off every other business on the block. I am a defender of small business. I lost, for the time being.

What followed, this half hour later, was a dive to the dumps that I never want to know again.

I couldn’t walk, I gradually lost my appetite, my drive, my strength along with the work habits that keep me humming, providing the ...

#MeToo - CONSEQUENCES 10-17
Itll never happen. They will never change. Men are just like that! Really! Is this really an awakening? Isnt masculine nature just . . . the way it is?

Was Harvey Weinstein the hole-in-the-dike that led to our freedom? As an androphilic (lover of men), even I, Julie, am bowled over by this change.

It was the power of the press, penetrating through formidable resistance, which succe...
