  1. I'm SO happy with our winner! What a great end to the season! I did get to see her live last weekend along with Jan, Eureka, Rajah, Jujubee, and some local queens. She was incredible! She seems so genuinely lovely as a person too.
  2. Listened to Thank You Camellia for the first time in a while today.
  3. What does everyone think about the Texas abortion law?
  4. He's near me close to my birthday on 11/11. I have to see him.
  5. The providing of lists floored me last week. How we do expect these folks (I use that word very loosely) to act in their own self interest? If I were one of them, I would give the United States everyone on those lists, knowing they were going to pack up shop and leave and I'd have free reign of the country again, but these aren't conventional people!
  6. He's in my city on Thursday just feet from work. I need to gooooo.
  7. Well, he has been on the record as wanting to leave for a very long time, but when he was running this time around, many around him said he's been on the wrong side of every major foreign policy issue. A ringing endorsement if ever there were one, lol. The point is, he was always going to do this. At least Trump said it would be down to conditions on the ground and issued a stern warning if the Taliban tried to take advantage. I don't think these folks are scared of our new president at all. Some may think we're overreacting, but getting these matters right and preventing attacks on our homeland and other Western targets is probably the primary thing I expect our government to be proficient at. What is a nation if we don't prioritize our national defense and keep our borders secure?
  8. At the risk of repeating myself, what's with his public statements? In the few that have happened and in interviews, he's so detached and appears unemotional. The reason many voted for him was that he's capable of empathizing with what they're going through. How about a little of that?? Or is it because he doesn't want to accept blame? Yes, the withdrawal was botched under his watch, but many presidents have made mistakes with respect to this country. But claiming you didn't make any, it would have been chaotic any way you cut it, people were going to die, etc etc - that's not what we like to see our elected leaders do...
  9. #GirlLookAtThatBody I really like the song too!
  10. You raise a few very good points. In the past week, the countless interviews I've listened to with those that served have echoed many of these same sentiments about the way it was handled. Not to take it to a political place straight away, but considering President Biden has said for years he's wanted to leave, he was going to pull us out when he got in there. At least with President Trump, there was a conditions-based component and he issued threats to the Taliban as to what would happen if they immediately took advantage of the situation. I can't prove it, but I don't believe for a second he would have just sat back, disengaged and allowed these people free reign. I don't think folks are overreacting. The Labor Party in Britain is criticizing the way the United States handled this, the Labor Party! They're ...pretty liberal, lol. I've spent most of this week depressed about the situation and how we could have handled this in such a way. I hope we do the right thing by the Americans still over there and those thousands of people that helped us over almost two decades of war. Based on the decades long history, in the words of a prominent commentator, there was never going to be a spike of the football in the end zone moment (a sports reference, you know those can't be my words lol). It's tough to take, but we sent our folks over there so we wouldn't have to fight terrorism on our soil and so they wouldn't have a safe haven to launch attacks from (that's obviously now out the window, it seems) and to that end, our military has done everything we've asked them to do. Our politicians botched this and history will reflect that.
  11. I don't mean to pile on, but yes. Crises have a way of exposing elected leaders and this was managed horribly. It was almost like it crept up on him and he had to be dragged to being engaged with it. The defense can't be, well we were going to leave anyway, what - did you want to stay? I'm no expert, but I don't know - perhaps sort out getting our folks out first, and the 20K+ folks that helped us over two decades of armed conflict? Who is going to say you can trust the United States now? We made a commitment to keep those that helped us safe and we need to keep our word.
  12. Somehow there's complaints about Governor DeSantis who is handling everything just right with respect to this issue. Am I missing something?
  13. So, the Taliban have captured the presidential palace in Kabul, Afghanistan.
  14. Chris Cuomo is interestingly enough off this week, the same week his brother resigned. Will CNN take any action against him? Hmm.
  15. 01. Kylie 02. Ginger 03. Ra'Jah 04. Trinity I'm super sad to see Eureka go because this time around, I really warmed up to her. Larger than life personality and seems like such a sweet person. But given the track record as was said before, I understand.
  16. I'm looking forward to finally attending the concert I was supposed to for a while in February.
  17. No one could have beat Kameron though.
  18. All my relatives are from Nova Scotia pretty much. I want to go someplace a little more ...exciting and lively.
  19. The border is open for vaccinated Americans. I can't wait to visit for the first time as an adult!
  20. The fact that they still even have him on, holy moly. No, he hasn't talked about it. He certainly did give him some advice on how to handle it though. Ugh.
  21. Kylie ftw or I'm burning the building down.
  22. I heard Wonder in a restaurant last night, the volume was loud and it was wonderful.
  23. These shirtless photos lately, holy moly.
  24. Today I listened to Lover and Red all the way through twice while doing data entry at work. It was a good day!
  25. He's coming to Boston very soon, I really want to go see him!
