Trust

Milo has been with me since 2010.   I say me because it is clear he thinks I am his special pet.   He is the one that sleeps on my pillow and is next to me most of the time on my desk.   Ron and James used to lament that while Milo will swipe at them claws out and has bitten them he won’t do that to me.   

I think a few minutes ago I sort of got the idea why I do not fear him biting or cutting me.   I sleep with his paws on my face so if he was going to hurt me he could at any time.   Earlier today we got a delivery from Amazon and I put the box on the floor for Milo, he loves boxes, he gets in them and claws the cardboard all to heck.   This time when he went to do that something went wrong.   

I was sitting at my desk reading the comments on Nan’s blog and heard Milo start to cat scream.  I quickly looked over and he was in the box and his claw(s) was caught.   It clearly was painful and he was upset.   I rushed over to him and he was telling the whole world it hurt.   I reached in and went to put my hands around him.   He started to thrash his head back and forth.   Don’t touch me it hurts he was crying.   I knew I had to even if he bit me because it was the only way to help him.  

Trust.   A wonderful thing.  I reached in and wrapped my hands around his chest, his head dashed to the left hitting my left hand hard with his mouth.   His closed mouth.   He never opened his mouth.   I gently pulled him up and forward releasing his claws.   He stopped yelling and I set him on the ground.   He started doing the cat I love you bumps on my hands and legs.   Trust.   I trusted he wouldn’t bite me, he trusted I would help him.   Trust.  It can be a good thing.   Hugs

MN Mom Sues Pharmacies After Employees Refuse to Fill Birth Control Prescription

Again people using their job to push their religious beliefs on others.  They use their profession to force other people to live by the doctrines of their religion.   They have no regard for other beliefs or needs.   This is not religious freedom, this is religious tyranny.   If your faith prevents you from doing your job, get a different job.   Hugs

MN Mom Sues Pharmacies After Employees Refuse to Fill Birth Control Prescription

Anderson’s contraception had broken one night earlier this year, and she didn’t want to take the chance of getting pregnant, so she quickly got a birth control prescription from her doctor. Yet the first two pharmacists she visited in Aitkin County refused to do their jobs.

 

… in a lawsuit filed Tuesday in Aitkin County, with the help of Gender Justice, a legal nonprofit, Anderson alleged the pharmacist George Badeaux refused to fill it based on his “beliefs” and “warned” against trying another nearby pharmacy. Anderson contends this was sex discrimination and violates the Minnesota Human Rights Act.

Anderson said she went to the CVS in Aitkin and was denied service again. Eventually, a third pharmacy in Brainerd gave her the medication. Anderson later filed the lawsuit and a complaint with the Minnesota Board of Pharmacy.

By the way, that CVS pharmacist, according to the lawsuit, said she called the third pharmacy and “they could not fill the prescription either.” But when Anderson went to that third location, the pharmacist, who confirmed speaking to the CVS person, said there was no problem at all getting the pill to Anderson. So it’s possible the CVS pharmacist straight-up lied.

Anderson eventually got the pill… from a location 50 miles from her house. Just as a “massive snowstorm” was hitting the area.

President Trump wants to help the auto industry.

The amazing technological advances that have led to driverless cars also has a downside.

Keep your eyes on the road.

The auto industry isn't thrilled about Trump's trade war.

ICE Destroyed Footage Of A Trans Asylum-Seeker Who Died In Custody Despite A Request To Save It

Filed under: Bigotry, Criminal, Fascism, Gender, Hate, LGBTQ, News, Political, Questions, Sex, Transgender news — Scottie @ 09:21

The video of 33-year-old Roxsana Hernández Rodriguez, who died in US custody on May 25, 2018, was requested by an investigative division of ICE as part of a review into her death. In the June 4, 2018, email, an analyst with ICE’s Office of Professional Responsibility requested a number of records related to Hernández’s death, including footage of her time at the Cibola County Correctional Center (CCCC) in Milan, New Mexico, on May 16–17.

“Please archive and retain all facility video surveillance footage,” the analyst asked, with the word “all” underlined.

However, in late August 2018, 95 days after Hernández’s death, ICE officials said in emails previously reported by BuzzFeed News that the footage was “no longer available,” suggesting it was because surveillance video is only kept for about 90 days.

Cops Break Into Innocent Sleeping Woman’s Home, Shoot Her—Now She Faces Life in Prison

Filed under: Criminal, Fascism, Gender, News, Political, Questions — Scottie @ 06:16

This police incompetence and disregard for others safety has got to stop.  Read the article, they helped her ex break into her home while she was sleeping, and she is the one on trial.   The police broke ever rule of common sense and what should be proper judgement and now to avoid their own embarrassment are charging the innocent woman.   This happened in Winter Park, Florida About two hours from me.   Hugs

Cops Break Into Innocent Sleeping Woman’s Home, Shoot Her—Now She Faces Life in Prison

Sapp’s nightmare began in September of 2017 as she slept comfortably in her own bed in her own home. Instead of waking up to her alarm that fateful morning, Sapp would wake up to multiple shadowy figures surrounding her in her bedroom, pulling off her covers, yelling at her, tasering her, and eventually, shooting her.

Sapp is so confident that she did nothing wrong that she went on camera recently with News 6 Orlando to tell her side of the story. It is nothing short of shocking. She says the entire incident began because her disgruntled ex-boyfriend used a police welfare check to deliberately harm her. It worked.

“He used this wellness check as a way to put me in harm’s way,” she said.

Indeed, instead of actually investigating the situation by knocking on the door, calling her, or any other number of non-violent means, cops helped this man — who did not live in the house and could have been anyone — break in to her home and then shoot this woman on his behalf.

Instead of shooting her, one cop deployed his taser. Marcum, apparently scared of his own shadow then did what the other officers in the room never felt necessary: he pulled out his gun and put a bullet into Sapp.

This innocent woman, who had harmed no one, was asleep in her own bedroom, and did nothing wrong, was then shot in the shoulder and arrested.

Reminder: Trump gets every advantage, every benefit of patriarchy, and every double standard and is STILL the biggest piece of shit in history.

They will keep going until they get the answer they want or there is no one left

Ivanka and Jared failed their security clearances, multiple times. Imagine a family with a long history of fraud and deception, failing so many security clearances, in any other situation. It’s unreal.

That just shows you how structurally powerful patriarchy and white male privilege are in our society, and how conservatives have no moral code or sense of shame.

Record the Republican votes and use it against them

Los Angeles Times: Millions in military aid at center of impeachment hasn’t reached Ukraine

Millions in military aid at center of impeachment hasn’t reached Ukraine
About $20 million of the Pentagon aid originally held up by President Trump hasn’t reached Ukraine. The continued delay undermines a key argument against impeachment made by a new White House legal memo and Trump’s Republican allies.

Main blogging computer

Filed under: My Life and Rants — Scottie @ 15:58

Sorry everyone, my main blogging computer is down and being run through reset.  Starting monday it got hit with malware attacks, and Norton took care of them.  But yesterday I suspected something and today I tried to play several twitter videos  and they wouldn’t play.  So I sent them to my pad and they would.  I sent them to this computer and they did play.   That meant I had a problem with my main blogging computer.  That means something has happened so I decided to simply reset the computer, hopefully that will fix any problems.   Until tomorrow, Hugs
