AHH! What’s going on? Northam did what? OMG. Wow. I didn’t support him until I had to against the Republican. I didn’t vote for him in the primary
because I’m smart. I did not want a conservative representing Virginia so I did vote for him in the general election. Geez. Okay, everyone is racist. But um, most people are in denial and nicely try to hide it. &$#^
I voted for Justin Fairfax too (of course). I 100% support him being governer. Too bad a person in Virginia can only have one term as governor. Stupidest rule ever because I don’t want to vote for a governor every 4 years. Anyway, if he is governor because Northam resigns, does that mean he can’t run again??! NOT FAIR.
Update: I just found out on Rachel Maddow that Fairfax would be allowed to run again if Northam resigns. That’s fair. yay! woohoo!
Let’s talk more about politics. Gosh, Kamala is a moderate Democrat if there ever was one. She even supports MORE prisons. Don’t get me started on that. However, she is safe. Isn’t it weird to say that a black female is a safe option for president? Thanks to Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama for that, I guess. Btw, it doesn’t matter her racial background. Americans see her as black.
Kamala is safe. I will not vote for her in the primary because she doesn’t stand for what I stand for. But I think she can win. I don’t want her to win, but most Americans are fine with moderate BS. So they can have her. She can win. Good for her.
I said months ago that I didn’t want Cory Booker to run for president and *sigh*. Well, I think he is a better choice than Kamala…so far. I’m not sure where he stands on campaign financing. It’s easy to find out, but I don’t care. I don’t think he is going to beat Kamala. Unfortunately.
Go, Marianne Williamson! I don’t agree with everything she says. But I would love for her to become president. She finally received some press coverage. Her pic was on MSNBC next to Kamala Harris, Julian Castro, and others! YAY. Woohoo. I know that doesn’t mean she will win, but anything’s possible.
Oh, what else is going on? Nothing much. Same as last week. My weight loss is really stalling. Bummer. 😦 But I would be gaining if I weren’t on Nutrisystem. I did exercise today. I danced for 20 minutes. I need to get on the treadmill at least twice a week. Whatevs.
Still no update on my dog. I’ll find out more when I take him to the vet on Friday (the 8th). They will probably get the labs back on Saturday or Monday. Then I’ll know for sure.
I explored my hotel options for my birthday beach vacay. I know I shouldn’t be spending money on that especially with the vet bills. But I really, really, really want to go. I haven’t had a real beach vacation in at least 5 years. That’s a long time for me because there was a stretch when I went every summer.
With my credit card points, I would have to pay $466 or $627. I don’t get it either. I’m scared to click on “add to my itinerary” because what if they CHARGE me right then and I’m not sure yet. Which is it? $466 or $627. That’s sort of a big difference. Normally I would pay $466 for the hotel with no points. I usually stay on the beach in a nice inexpensive hotel. But I want a pet-friendly hotel so I have to pay big bucks. I’m planning to stay at the Hyatt House. So expensive. ick.
Speaking of class, I got called on twice this week! This will be normal from here until the end of the class in March. We have class every Sunday and we had a lab this past Tuesday night. I was so nervous. Fuck. Sorry, I’m reliving my anxiety. Whew.
There’s so much to learn in astrology 101. I assumed that some of what we are learning now would be learned in 102. I’m so glad I’m not going during the Spring. I still haven’t decided on whether I’m going back at all. To get a certificate, all I need is 3 classes. There is a TON of info in those 3 classes. I don’t need more. Hmmm. I just hate that participation is 40% of our grade. I hate it. I don’t think I want to take 12 classes and get a diploma. That’s a lot of worrying about participating. I don’t mind being called on. I don’t like having to be fake* online by responding to other’s comments. If I have something to say, I’ll say it, but I’m the worst fake person ever.
*Yes there is the word fake again. Superficial. Fake. Whatever. Hate it. Can’t do it. I’m a Taurus. We don’t act. We just are.
Oh shit. I’m watching MSNBC and Cory Booker has a lot of issues. Good luck. He’s going to need it. He tried to privatize water. Not good. There’s a school voucher issue that I don’t care about. #sorryNotSorry And he got millions from Facebook. Damn. Okay, what’s wrong with Julian Castro? Just tell me. Once again, I don’t care enough to look it up. I know he doesn’t have a ton of experience. Hmmm, that’s probably why there’s not much to say about him.
I could talk politics forever. That’s the Gemini Moon in me. How do you think I’ve managed to blog for over 15 years? Gemini. However, I can’t talk clearly. Why? Pisces rising. ROFL. So I’m a Gemini moon who loves to talk to myself. 🙂 But I often don’t speak clearly because uh, Pisces rising. I want to do Instagram Live, but I can barely do Instagram stories. Sigh. I love being Pisces rising though. That means good intuition. As a tarot reader, that’s a good thing.
And I didn’t even get a chance to talk about Howard Schultz. Maybe next week unless someone else dresses in a KKK outfit or in blackface. Who knows? I’m still in disbelief. But I kind of feel bad for Northam which sickens me a little. I always saw him as a good guy but NOT governor material. This sucks.
It’s funny. Democrats are getting on my nerves way more than Republicans right now. (Not the voters, the politicians).

Plans for the Weekend: Freedom, baby! In 2 weeks when I’m not working overtime, I will be yearning for it. Anyway, I’m working on astrology school for 70% of the time and 30% of the time I’m working on my online biz. I have a feeling it will end up being 50/50. I really need to focus on class. In fact, I wasn’t going to blog tonight but the Northam thing happen and the Gemini in me had to blog about it.
Thanks for reading my political babble. I’ll talk about other stuff next week. Hopefully, it will be good stuff. Have a great weekend! 🙂
