  1. yeah, it almost makes me feel good about not being able to afford to eat out.
  2. "The View" Week Of 6/18/2018

    That was such a weird thing to say. Dogs, yeah, people are emotionally connected to their dogs. But if you move to another state, why would your first thought be "I'm bringing my guns?" You bring all your stuff, furniture, books, computer, everything. Why are guns her first thought, as though they bring her comfort? I picture her in some old fashioned dress, hair in ridiculous braids, standing on the porch of a log cabin, holding a shotgun, and yelling, "git off my property you varmint! Fore I shoot holes in ya!" I found her theme song:

    Jon Meecham will be on? Hes brilliant. My prediction is that MM will come on with a long meandering question dictated by her husband, asking Meecham to defend something from one of his books. And, of course, completely misrepresentating what he means. It would be the perfect opportunity for Sunny to accidentally spill her coffee all over Meghan's blue cards. Oops!

    After putting together a photo slideshow for my mom's funeral, I have had the thought that I could make one for my own. I generally HATE photos of myself, so I would choose the ones to use. Sounds pretty morbid, and my family wouldn't like that I even thought of it, but it made me feel good that I could do it.

    No, it doesn't. I can compare two things and say they are both bad, without implying that they are equally bad. Just like I can say two things are good, without implying they are equally good. Sunny is not required to say which is worse or better, just because MM asks. MM was trying a "gotcha" question, and Sunny refused to play. Sunny is good with her words, she doesn't get easily tricked into saying something she doesn't mean. I would take her words to mean literally what she said, without inferring any other meaning.

    Meghan might believe that Melania cares about the children separated from their parents. I am not so sure. (edited because I wanted to stay on topic)

    Well, I WILL say that (glancing at my note cards) 85% of the time I do not disagree with 74% of what 96% of the posters on this forum write. But polls say that (another note card) that 69% of people who post here think that 43% of the posts are influenced by the democrats who want to repeal internet based forums and let the Mexican drug cartels take over the internet. Don't yell at me, I'm just reporting what the PTV "base" thinks. And just let me say, The person who started this forum is one of my verybestfriendsinthewholeworld, who I would totally have a crush on except my heart belongs to Paul Ryan.

    When my son was little, he heard kids talking about the A-word, the B-word and the S-word, and he figured there was a swear word for every letter of the alphabet, and he needed to learn them all. Poor guy was really disappointed.

    Meghan's "valley girl speak" is turned up to 100 today. And then - Sunny asked "had anyone actually ever advocated open borders?" MM's answer is "yes, the woman on fox news the other day, that my old show absolutely annihilated..." WHAT? Fox News interviews ONE democrat who wants open borders, therefore DEMOCRATS want open borders. I wonder - did maybe someone talk to Meghan about not interrupting, talking over, and monopolizing the conversation? Because I noticed a difference today. I think she was scolded. (maybe the producers are reading the twitter feed)

    Meghan's "Democrats want open borders" is a trump talking point, who says Democrats want anyone to be allowed in, including terrible drug-running gangs. It's the same tactic Meghan uses when talking about gun control. Republicans want people to exercise their rights, Democrats want to repeal the second amendment. Democrats want to open the borders to criminals, republicans want Americans to feel secure. Everything is expressed in terms of extremes. Maybe she actually did participate in high school debate, where there is one issue, and teams are either pro or con, no middle ground. Come to think of it, reading quotes from index cards was a part of high school debate team. You had to have sources to back up your points. But she's doing it wrong, you have to make the point, then back it up. She's just reading quotes, regardless if whether the quote addresses the point she's making. Maybe that is what is being with the show these days. 4 women are having a discussion, and one is trying to win a debate competition.

    Notice today that Meghan cannot say "I agree with you" to any of the "liberal" co-hosts. She says "I won't disagree with that." It's a subtle difference. She seems to be saying "I usually would disagree with everything you say, but I'm not going to disagree with THAT statement." WHy can't she just say "you're right" or "I agree"? But her bullshit about how everyone who isn't for a bipartisan bill (which funds the WALL in exchange for releasing the kids) is saying "screw the kids," THAT pissed me off. Whoopi corrects her, and she says "I give up." WHoopi is getting really fed up with MM's tribalism.

    What bugged me today was that when Sarah was talking, MM had a pen and was editing her blue cards, underlining, or crossing out. She expects everyone to listen to her, but she won't even pretend to listen. Sarah's point, about parents not having options, was lost, because MM answers with "I won't disagree with that," and then goes into her "moral relativism" bullshit. She glosses right over Sara's point, to blame "the left" for who knows what, and then attacks Sunny. Sunny had to defend herself on twitter today, as someone took her to task for equating being murdered for being gay with separating families. Which she didn't do!

    Yes, I liked the original idea if the golden buzzer - to override the vote, saving someone from being eliminated. Now, the buzzer is used to say an act is the best of the night.

    What I know, from my work in the mental health field, my family (2 adopted nephews from Romania) and what I've read: Reactive attachment disorder is a real issue with these kids, especially when they stayed in an orphanage until age 3. If a kid spends the first 3 years of life without a nurturing adult, they are numb to feelings, and grow up with emotional deficits. this can lead to violence, a complete disregard for authority and for others' feelings, unable to understand how relationships work, being manipulative, mood swings, erratic behavior, almost any kind of psychological problem. Kids who were adopted into good families before age 3 fared better, as they were able to bond with caretakers. There are horror stories from parents who adopted Romanian kids, and there are success stories. Most fall somewhere in between. Kids who lived in Romanian orphanages were malnourished and often had dysentery from the contaminated well water. their motor skills were stunted by not having opportunities to crawl, walk, etc, since they were often confined to cribs with 2 or 3 other kids. growth problems, from not having proper nutrition, are common. They didn't know how to feed themselves, as their hands were often tied down while a caretaker fed several kids at the same time. One of my nephews was unable to chew food or move food to the back of his throat to swallow, as he had been fed only semi-liquid gruel for 1.5 years. Learning problems, coordination problems are common, as are movement disorders like tics, head-banging. My nephews, now young adults, had their share of problems, but are pretty healthy, and have been able to graduate high school, one took some college classes. They don't always make the best decisions, their work history is sporadic. One has some significant psych issues, but at times can be sweet. they are basically good people, with some difficulties like being impulsive and not learning from mistakes. The ones who were NOT adopted: the underground orphans here's one article, with some hard-to-look-at photos. From what I know, orphans stayed in the orphanage until about age 10. At that point, they were let out - with no families, no support, no skills. They steal, are in the sex trade, become addicts, some are basically slaves, working in order to eat. Most die fairly young.
