    in big piles it might make an impact.

    But truly, the lack of proportional perspective in terms of guiding expenditures is one the most insane realities of modern American life. We'll spend literal trillions to stop what is in reality a minor risk to us while slashing funding where actual, provable impact can be made and where risks are real, well-measured and huge.

      Instead of staging a protest or a sit-in, let's all hie our asses to Washington DC and have a die-in.

      Got health issues? (I do) No insurance? (I don't).  Nothing else to lose? (Me either). What the hell, let's make 'em WATCH. And then watch them get even more pissed off at the cost of removing our corpses...

      (Do I really need a snark tag for this?)

       

      This all started with "what the Republicans did to language".

        (an errant diagnosis, happily), I had plenty of fantasies about what to do in my final months. What I actually did was hang with my little kids, but the thought of, well, let's just say introducing myself to some of the Masters of the Universe made for entertaining, if morbid, thinking.

        There is actually a wild indy movie along that theme. It's called "God Bless America." If you have Netflix streaming, pop some popcorn and have a watch Luna.
