Treason

Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.

My conclusion: there be treason in progress because cooperation in suborning a national election to advance the political and economic interests of a foreign power sounds like "adhering to" or at least "providing aid," right?

Wrong, according to internet sources, not all of which are to the right. The United States is not in a state of war with the Russian Federation, so Russia is not technically an enemy of America.

First: I sense an area of cooperation between Freedom Caucus Republicans and pretty much any congress critter who supports Russian sanctions if a formal declaration of war is all that stands between the White House and treason charges, because Russia is sure as hell Not Our Friend.

Second: new round of research on how many Americans have been hung out to dry for treason during the Cold War, which was not any kind of formally declared affair.

First attracted by the fact it had more food from more places than GrubHub, I became an Uber Eats enthusiast because you can watch your courier get so very lost on the little map and call them back when they start to reverse down your street.

Sweet young thing: (prolonged apologia for why there isn't a corruption problem in Russia just because the West says there is)
Me: Starting from "the Russian oligarchs began life as the Russian Mafiya," rethink the history of the Russian Federation since 1989 and get back to me.
Sweet young thing: (sputters)
Me: Also, get off of my lawn.

Me: (paid for own shingles shot before insurance would cover it rant rant rant GO VAXX)
Troll: yr mom dint vax you agin chickenpox because she loved you! (drool derp buh wut?)
Me: (kinda steely eyed) By the time the chicken pox vaccine was in release, my chicken pox was five or six years in the past.

Why yes I still struggle with hiding my contempt for the anti-vaxx (vax? Is there a grammar here?) crowd; what wss your first clue?

If I am asexual because I haven't had the right sex with the right person, then:

1. How many times must I attempt sex before receiving my valid Certificate of Asexuality,

And

2. How soon before enough sexual encounters occur will I be labeled a tramp?

TL;DR: don't tell people their preferences, kids.

Note: when Best Buy says "for best experience, please bring..." they mean "for any experience other than gtfo."
My sad tale of woe )

tl;dr version: the difference between a human being and a machine providing customer service is the emotional heavy lifting. Yup, everything under the cut epitomizes a love child of First World problems and my own inability to plan ahead. I still get better customer service from amazon.com, and I've spoken to a human there twice in 10 years. Yes, it sucks when customers are lusers (ok, that's tech support wtfever,) but fact remains that the less emotional heavy lifting brick and mortar employees are ready to do, the more motivation I have to bend my life around phone menus, websites and vending machines.

Also, the Lenovo Ideapad 110s is pretty good for the price. Kind of one thing at a time, though.

I plan on apple cinnamon later.

Second, is object permanence a thing with cats?

I'm sitting in the chair with Rodney in the prime lap spot, flicking his tail like the smug, 300 pound tiger he is in his head. Sammi is glaring balefully from the floor.

I'm chilly because there's a blizzard going on three or four States north of here and flick the afghan up over my lap and coincidentally over Rodney, who thinks this is Best.

Sammi's little glower parts like the clouds letting in the sun because my lap, while lumpy, is now free and clear, and jumps up with a whole and happy heart...

...straight onto the cat having an "under the bedsheets" moment.

In other news, pls send bandaids.

What is it men think goes on in the women's room? We're kinda busy performing maintenance on our illusion of beauty and if we're not actively discussing topics of no interest to men,we're probably talking about what jackasses men are.

Pretending to be a transwoman to sneak into a bathroom is not quite the entertainment some men seem to think.

"Unless you are in front of a transgender human being while experiencing a reciprocated desire to get busy, what's under their clothes and what they get up to with it is none of your business. These are things that are inappropriate areas of idle speculation for any other group,and that should be true of every group."

How's that?

US Attorney General Sessions has recused himself from investigations into the Trump- Russia connection. Apparently, that's too much of a distraction from gutting the Civil Rights Act.
