A pledge of allegiance to Mein Trump.....

Scary shite be happening south o' the' border.

We watch it like a trainwreck, or a reality tee vee show here in the great white north.

This however, is bizarre and weird. The visuals are kinda chilling:

I have a secret wish that this is all a huge joke being perpetrated on the people of the US, and that those who are supporting Drumph will have some sort of reckoning when they realize the joke is on them.....
But then reality sets in; I know people are just this racist, self involved and willing to follow evil.

The rabbit hole.

Hell's bells! We is back on the air.

First off, someone got into the databases for ACR here, and deleted some stuff. Yup. That hole has hopefully been plugged. Its an odd thing because there are several sites running under one account and this was the only one they decided to delete.

The backup that finally worked was from 2014, so the rest is poof for the moment. But, hey. You cannot kill an idea anyway. ACR is all made up of ideas with supporting data and facts. :)

And swearing.

It took a while longer to get back up because my bad streak with ACR was indeed part of three bad things. This was actually the least of my problems. It is insignificant compared to the other stuff that has happened.

My Mika, my pretty gurl, friend, confidant, and wearer of silly hats, passed away. Mika was sick for about a week, and left us on December 29, 2015. It is impossible to express how hard it has been for all of us here in the Batcave. She leaves behind four kids who thought she was always going to be here to meet and greet us, offer solace, and be our rock.

It is a hole that cannot be filled. The cat is also bereft beyond imagining.

Kinda guilty. Always cute. :)
But, I am not done yet.

My Father passed on January the 2, 2016.
It was always complicated for both of us. So many things happened over the course of our relationship. I spoke to him last on Boxing day, and when it got entirely too sad, he told me he and my stepmom would come see us all this summer. I totally got that it was bullshit, but it seemed so fitting and so......Dad. Bs'ing until the very end, if only to make me feel a little better.
I will always remember that last time we talked with a smile as well as some tears.

His cancer was advancing very fast, and he went to sleep soon after for a few days and then he was gone.

So. Back on the air. Back on the internetz. The swearing shall resume shortly.

I wish my Mika was under my desk gently snoring.

Itteh Bitteh wishes it was so too.

Canadian Progressives Aggregator....New home....!!!

So, every spring, the flowers start to bloom, the grass grows, the trees bud, and the host for the Canadian progressives Aggregator demands a massive sum of money to host us. (to me its massive, I'm thrift girl.)

This year, we had a whole swath of amazing contributions from the usual suspects, and some new ones! to allow me to pay the massive sum of money for the hosting.

But yanno.....When they also demanded a completely out of whack exchange rate for the Canadian dollars I have to offer, I said.....Naaaaaaaaaaaah. pale no play dat!

So after some investimagation ™, I found hosting at a much more reasonable rate, that is also pretty reliable.
We are now good to go for three years, instead of one year. There will be no shows in the barn to raise funds, and no one will have to sell a kidney. YAY! Crowdfunding in ACTION!

Thanks to all those who added to the pot to make this possible. You know who you are and will be getting a pvt mail as well.

Rock on! Stop HARPER!


The Harper Gubbermint: Taking the Universality outta Universal health care!

I know, this is a soapbox I have been on for years.
But many have walked on by as if I was one of those crazy street preachers forecasting the end of the world.

Here is where I would say, "I told ya so!" and get some weird perverse pleasure at being right, but I am not feeling the joy.

So what is the Harper Gubbermint planning to do?
Well, as usual it's a backdoor, sneaky kinda deal that pits Canadians against each other. Lord of the flies, divide and conquer. Conservative style!
