Follow your heart and intuition

Wish I Had Said That Dept.

“Your time is limited, so don’t waste it living someone else’s life. Don’t be trapped by dogma – which is living with the results of other people’s thinking. Don’t let the noise of others’ opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.” – Steve Jobs

My feelings exactly! But easier said then done.

Trump's War on Transgenders Dept.

ICE prison for transgender immigrants never opened

Shortly after President Trump’s inauguration one year ago, America’s newest detention center for undocumented immigrants opened, just south of Dallas.

  1. Love the Jobs quote!
    As far as the orange buffoon goes, for some misguided reason I still know several trans women who support him.

    1. Maybe it's all the new jobs (lowest African-American unemployment EVER), higher wages, lower taxes, and overall better quality of life? Or perhaps the originalist judges he's appointing? I mean, really, who could appreciate less government sticking its unwelcome nose in your business and more protection of individual rights? Imagine a world where ID was *not* required to get into a bar or onto an airplane! (No need to show a male driver's license...)

      Life is always better for people on the margins when the margins are wide, wide, wide.
