    I spent a few hours catching up on Robinson's public activities. Wow. What a shit show. And so so so so so full of hate. Black Trump.

    A feudal system is what they want for America.

    I agree with Steve about fear. Add in purposeful ignorance (accepting lies) and you have the GOP in all its ugly shame.

    I think many of them are afraid to get on Trump's bad side (he doesn't really have a good side), or to get on the bad side of Trump's base, if the individual is not important enough for dipshit himself to notice.

    A lot of apt comparisons to the feudal system: "Swear fealty to me or die."

    I was able to hold my little Grandniece Lorelei a few times, which I didn't think I'd be able to do shortly after she was born.

    She had a massive tumor in her head, which literally took up more space than her brain did. So she had to undergo surgery to remove most of it, and has been dealing with radiation and chemo ever since. But she is a fighter. Her brain grew into that void, and she has continued to develop at an astounding rate. She recently came off chemo and is doing well under a different treatment regimen, and her hair is growing like crazy.

    But even more encouraging is her zest for life. She doesn't like to be held, because that limits her freedom. But she let me pick her up for like three seconds at a time before saying, "Down" with a little smirk on her face.

    Yes, ma'am.

    To say that made me happy would be a huge understatement. It also makes me appreciate life, and the moments we can steal here and there. Because that is all we can have, a moment here and there. Treasure them, and don't dwell on why we can't have more moments like that. That's how you miss things, and since the Vulcan Science Academy has determined that time travel is not possible, you can't get those moments back.

    That's all the logic I have for today.
