I drink a lot

I DRINK A LOT
I was born in 1968

At first it may be because of a failed relationship with a neighbour because she hooked
up with my brother. On that what sort of person does that, seriously. I wasn't ready for
that. I have decided not to swear on here. I will also not give away names or businesses.
They could possibly work it out but I won't name anyone. I just want to tell my story.
Later it became more of I just want to forget. And sleep. I can't kill myself or hurt
myself.

Some more reasons are that I was bullied throughout my life. My stepfather abused me. My
real dad was an alcoholic. My mother was controlling from my 20's. When I met the
neighbour I was 21. My Mother kicked both my brother and I out if we didn't stop seeing
the neighbour. But then again the neighbour was a waste of space. Around the late 2000's
my mum actually wrote me a letter to say stop seeing a mutual friend.

Some local kids decided to throw condoms with water inside them because I was friends
with a gay guy. I knew he was gay. So what. But local kids thought it was wrong. They
were homophobic. I could really get them into trouble now with that. But why bother. I
really just drink so I will die soon hopefully. I have lost all hope for humanity.
They threw them at my car.

Anyways, after my abuse I still didn't work out my sexuality until probably 1994/1995.
I am not sure.

My father was an alcoholic and lost the family business early on in my life. My mum and
dad separated when I was 5. I remember little about my early childhood. Mainly things at
school. One home incident really stuck out early. I have a scar above my eye because a
steel ladder hit it. 5 stitches.

I am pretty sure my dad use to abuse my mum and gave us all the belt at one point. My
oldest brother acted out a lot and left when he was 16 I think.

After my parents separated I would visit my mum on weekends and holidays and see my
stepfather and his kids. Then in 1975 my mum and stepfather moved to another state.
Starting in December, 1978, I visited my mum and stepfather in the holidays staying
about 5 weeks. This happened in 1978,79,80,81. In June 1982 my dad had the accident and
I stayed with my mum for about 3 months.

Another incident was a German Shepard ( named that way at the time) attacked me when I
was walking home and I got some bad scratches and a lifetime fear of dogs. Found out
later the dog attacked someone else and was shot dead.

I am one of three brothers. The oldest is now dead from a heart attack but was an
alcoholic. Around April he started drinking heavily and was told not to drink again.
The second oldest now has cancer but was born with brain damage. He was the
brother that the neighbour dumped me for him. ( again yea who does that?) Me. I am an
alcoholic and had been abused, bullied, cheated on, lost a son to a girl who cheated on
me. Yea so life is great hey.

I worked out my sexuality in 1994? Maybe. Well in 2000 I moved to a big city and started
driving a taxi. I left a winery because the lead hand wouldn't stop pushing his ideas on
me. One of my last conversations to him was that I would kill him and bury him. I think
I got the point across.

In 1978, I had a weird conversation with my stepsister. She asked me how I masturbated.
I didn't at that point. 2 years later after my mum and stepfather met another couple,
some of my abuse started. Yes it was sexual. I can't say I was forced. I wanted to do
it. I know that doesn't make it right. Its just what happened. With one of the sons of
the other family some things happened. We visited a nudist camp and nudist beach. The
other family had 6 children. They were a blended family. The oldest was about 16. The 2
stepsisters were a year older then me. The 2 stepbrother's were my age. There was a
younger girl. About 3 years younger. In 1982 I had extra relations with the other
brother and both stepsisters. We were all about 14 and 15 when this happened.

Actually in 1982, my father had a bad accident. He was going to buy a bottle of sherry
from a pub. Apparently he said he did a u-turn and hit a tree.
Actually he hit the tree at speed. He claimed someone ran him off the road.
He hit that tree with such force that the car, a ht panel van, had a rounded dent in the
front that it was amazing he was still alive. He had broken ribs, broken legs, and
troubles with eating and other things. He couldn't walk properly afterwards. When I saw
him in hospital I fainted. It was horrific. So I went to live with my mom. When he
recovered I went back to him. He continued to drink. We moved from one city to a town
then to a beach town. At this point I was experimenting with wearing women's clothes.
And in the beach town I continued with meeting men.

In 1984 my father died. He couldn't eat properly. And still drank. I started stealing
things from 1982 and ended up spending 3 months in a detention centre in 1983 ( I think)
then had probation until age 18. When I left the centre I again run away but my children
services officer found me. Anyways. I stopped acting out and lost my father.

In 1981, I was in a school in grade 8 in a high school that I knew nearly everyone in
the school. 1982 year 9 I did it then had to continue year 9 in another school where I
was bullied. 1983 I had to repeat year 9 but when I was sentenced to 3 months prison
after stealing bicycles, a boat and tried to steel a car and succeeded in stealing my
dad's car and drove to a big city, my dad took me to the police. In the police interviews
they first tried to pin a lot of stuff on me and i played along until i got sick of the
righteous cop who thought i was some sort of crime wave. I wanted to leave school. One
of the best things I made friends with the strongest guy in that place. Funny thing I
remember when a yacht won for a small country. And a song about still standing. I made
a coffee table too.

After my father's funeral me and the second oldest brother returned to my mother's and
stepfather's place. A caravan with all of my toys and coffee table, my brother's models
and telescopes and clothes was stolen as well as school photos. The caravan was recovered
but nothing else. Who steals photos and toys?

2 incidents that happened about 8 years apart in 2 different states really affected me
badly. The day after my birthday in 1986 I picked up my car from the pub, saw some
friends, then drove home when I got to my turn I saw some police cars and an ambulance
and a car that looked like it was sideswiped. Turns out the driver who was killed was a
local popular girl and was pushing her car after running out of fuel. The drunk driver
lost his licence and not much else. I reckon he should have been locked up for murder.
Another 8 years or so in another state a local kid hopped into his classic car and headed
into town but a big 4wd driven by another drunk driver was headed towards him and
collided and killed him. The drunk driver got a slap on the hand. He, too should have
been put in jail for murder. 2 more wastes of spaces.

I want to tell my story to everyone for free. I don't want money. I am a unemployed carer
for my brother who has cancer. If anyone wants to donate, donate to a worthy cause of
your choosing.

In year 7 the teacher's kid was in his class and because of that I got the cane for
several times. Of course I would like to find that kid now and whip him but he is another
waste of space.

The principal was also a waste of space and at one time kept us all on the parade ground
where someone fainted from the heat. À girl at the school who I liked lied that she
liked me but was joking. I did see her again in 1989 maybe. The third bf of the
neighbour punched me because I started stalking her, oh yes I did stalk her but again
who the hell hooks up with my brother after dumping me.

That couple later was arrested for drugs and later left the area. A local drunk who
abused me for the following and stalking ended up getting run over and died. I thought
at least one waste of space is now dead.

A stupid idiot died. Good.

There were some great experiences from my childhood. Like a cat that was blind that I
called pinky. She was a white albino cat. She was probably blind.
She was the greatest pet I ever had. She had a litter in my dad's doctor's case. She
once followed me all the way to the local shop ( about 4 kms) and back but I had to
carry her the last few hundred yards. But as all great things it ended with tragedy. I
came home from school and couldn't find her. My dad said he found her after being
attacked by dogs, her back broken he had to put her out of her misery. I have never
since had a pet like her. I don't know what happened to the dogs, but another
reason I hate dogs.

Put it this way. If I had a gun and a dog walked up to me I would pull the trigger.

On my stepfather. Yes he abused me and another kid. His reputation could be ruined by
this. His paintings are hanging in a council office and a park is named after him. If
anyone thinks they should be changed then I will get that done. If not I will leave it.
My stepfather passed away in 2005 from a heart attack because he still smoked.

My mother was controlling. I think in the early 2000's I told my mum and stepfather
about a girl I was interested in. That didn't work out. I never told them any other
relationship again. I think I picked younger girls because I missed out on girls from
21 to 33. I met many girls from 2001 to 2019. Most were younger. Only one was older.
But they were always of legal age. I could never be an abuser. And I couldn't be with
a married woman either.

Some of the first girls were Aussie, but I soon moved to Asian ladies, even marrying a
Vietnamese girl so she could stay in Australia. It failed though cause she was too busy
making money as a hooker. She claimed she was a stripper but she would bring guys back
to the house. In 2010 I changed to mostly African girls. My last lady friend was
Hispanic.

A "gf" in 2017 to 2018 who I had a baby with who was still born because of her not
telling me that her water had broken. She also cheated on me. I don't know when it
started. Soon after leaving a job where I was bullied and treated like rubbish a guy
came to the house and she hoped I wasn't home. After some distinctive noises I did
leave. She wanted to have a second baby but after finding out she cheated I didn't want
to have another kid with her. Soon after we left the house and I went back to living in
my car.

Living in my car. Pretty sure I did this from December 2009. Anytime I had work in big
city. At one point I joined a gym so I could shower. Other times I went to swimming
pools. Later I found a truck service station that wouldn't mind who used the showers
as long as you bought something.  Actually some great meals and people at the
place. I couldn't really afford it but at least I wasn't paying rent.

Yes I am an alcoholic. I won't stop. I want to die. I am ashamed. If anyone wants to
stop me guess you will have to lock me up. In the world we have a megalomaniac who
wants to rule the world. We have minorities who are continually dying in custody. If
even one person doesn't do anything then nothing changes.

Met a lovely person in 2011. Things ended in 2012 when I left a Job to be with her. Job
later folded. Owners were another waste of space. But I loved this person. I know it
wouldn't have worked though. I was too old. If I had met her in, oh that wouldn't work
out. Let's just say if I was 20 years younger it would have been better.

I can only think of one woman who was my perfect match but that didn't work out. Or if
we were born in different times.

Pretty sure that I will never find true love or another job.

Thanks to the federal government for forgetting unemployed people over 35. Thanks
for one state government for blaming another government for closing state boarders
then recording more infections. And thanks to a waste of space.

Pandemic. Look at the numbers. One country has the most. This country never took
proper precautions. Their leader is another waste of space.

My new catch phrase. Another waste of space.

Jobs I left. 2 times at the winery. Firstly one couple couldn't work fast enough. I
know I am slow but this couple was retarded. Second time was because of that leading
hand. Driving taxis I just moved depots when I moved houses. In 2002 I worked for a guy
to deliver junk mail. He was another waste of space. I lived with him and his gf ( being
a friend of mine) I woke up one night to his swearing, actually turning out to be a
reminder to my dad.

I worked for a depot in 2008-09, because the mechanic thought it was funny to trap me
in the window. Guess what another waste of space.

I worked for a depot where the owner was a waste of space.

A dealership I worked for where I was bullied and that. Well everyone there was a waste
of space.

Oh yea bonus material. A girl and a cop tried to frame me for hitting her car. She
actually reversed into me. Her and parents ran a shop with adult videos and drugs. The
cop was involved. Anyways later on I heard he tried to pick up another girl and got his
brains blown out.

In that place before we moved I could get anything I wanted. For instance I could buy
a gun.

So should I keep drinking.

I also ran a few businesses of my own. And even one on an app. Again probably making
less then $10 an hour. More wastes of spaces.

Talk about slave labour. Even in this country they still want people to pick fruit
and be paid for weight. Again another waste of space.

From October 2018, after I left that house I would work up to 8 days then drive up to
the little country town and buy and cook dinner for my brother. Sometime in September
2019 I noticed my brother had a lump on his neck. He said he had it for awhile. I got
him to see a doctor and when he did she referred him to a ct scan. Then he referred to
an oncologist. He was diagnosed with incurable cancer.

Mum passed away in 2013 from cancer.

I moved all my stuff up to the house to care for my brother at the end of September.
Cook and shop and stuff. Drive him to his appointments. We have visited another town
which is 100kms away 26 times. My brother has had all of his treatments and all is good
for now.

I will no longer risk my brothers life now. I won't be meeting anyone for years.

Now to this year. I have almost paid off a big debt. Started in 1994/1995 with a
bankcard. Up to $13000. Paid it off in 2012 after my ute got written off. But then
made it again after the move to be with that girl. This year I also got the remainder
of me super. ( a stupid idea. Why not have your money now). Anyways bought some gadgets,
paid off debt and may have a road bike end of this year.

My body isn't too good. I am overweight and have high blood pressure. I had also
started smoking when I was 15 then gave up when I was 23. So at a later date I may
develop cancer as well. Do I want to know. Part of me does and my doctor has suggested
I find out via an x-ray. Part of me does not. We all die. I have now reached out to
see a psychologist to talk to someone about my mental health and life. But I also want
to tell my life story to my family, some day.

I stopped drinking the other day will now take it one day at a time. I know I have to be
here for my brother. After that I don't know.

Now my sleeping pattern is all over the place. Wake up at midnight after a few hours
sleep. Fall asleep around midday sleep til 8 pm. Then it changes again. Last night fell
asleep around 9pm and woke up at 4am. I hope it is all good now. Was thinking of drinking
again to make my sleep right but didn't.

We did have a memorial for my stillborn son and I named him after my stepfather. I don't
know why but it was the first name that came to mind. He is buried at a cemetery that I
have never visited. As far as I know there is no plaque. I will reach out to the cemetery
to find out if he has one.

I heard some wonderful news on sunday. I am drinking now. I am celebrating. I am an alcoholic.
In 2012 I stopped drinking for a few years. A few weeks ago I stopped drinking for a bit but
started again. I don't care if it kills me. A ducking dunt is still not gone from the usa
He should be removed.

Finally some good news. The ducking dunt didn't get enough votes. Now if he doesn't leave he
can be removed by the secret service. You will be able to guess who he is. I think he is
insane. My country is trying to get the country responsible for the pandemic to face some
sort of charges. That country has told my country to really think about what they are doing.
Probably a good idea not to pick on a very large country in terms of population.

Some things did happen in 1979. with that other family we did visit a nudist beach. In 1980
the other family purchased my stepfather's mothers' house after her passing. Then after
that we would visit the nudist camps. I cant remember much else that happened in 1979. At
one point some time early on i saw both my stepfather and mother naked. Probably was in
1978 now that I think of it the night I saw them was the same night my stepsister asked me
about how I masturbate.

I have found out where my son is buried. I checked some records from a council and found
out where he is and asked the council if he had a plaque. He doesn't so I am visiting the
cemetery soon and will get a plaque for him as soon as I can. He was light skin but still
be a person of colour if he lived, with all of the rascism that is still abundant in my
country. White people just don't know what it is like to be treated differently because
of the colour of your skin.

I had deleted some of these paragraphs but decided to reuse them. I dont want the world
to end. I just want my world to end.

My mum sent me a letter sometime in 1996 about my father having been abusive to her.
That's why she left him. I ran away to a big city for a year.

Going to get a gew more gadgets like a video camera to film my story to put up on
youtube using narrator to tell it. This is my life now. drinking to sleep and trying to
forget my life. I could of course stop drinking but where's the fun in that. I dont want
to live forever. I think the world will end soon. We have many countries that want to
start world war 3. Luckily the reign of a dictator has been ended. But i dont put it
past his stupid chrildren trying the same thing. I think the best solution is to kill
him and his entire family. That would save the world. But then again there is 7.8
billion people on earth. So why not end human life.

Actually I think all of the human races' problems are because of politicians. Lets
get rid of politicans if you want the human race to survive another 1000 years.

We have many websites where people scam other people, troll other people and
bascially treat other people very terribly. Why cant we stop these people. How
about get rid of the internet. It is not working. Many other things throughout
history has killed many people. Cigarettes, Alcohol, Coal, Oil and more that
without the world would be better off. There has been many wars too. Many
terriost actions and gun related crimes. One big country has a right to bear
arms. But they continue to have gun deaths and many other crimes. Get rid of
the guns. GET RID OF THE GUNS.

Remember hearing about a guy who actually shot his dad because his dad use
to beat his mother.

One last thing a stupid country voted in a complete dunt. And now there are
rumours you will vote in his daughter. What is wrong with these people??/?
???????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????????

In 1997 a certain popular person died in a car accident. I was making my
style of picnic tables when I heard. It was a sad day.

About 2005 I was driving to big city to do some job that was supervising
taxi ranks. I would finish at 5 am drive halfway home to the country then
sleep in my car. Wake up and drive home. Sleep a bit more then drive back
to big city.

I have sent an earlier update to my stepfather's kids and a friend. I don't
think I will see them again. I want to actually remove the paintings, the
gravestones and the sign at the park.

Actually I think a certain polictical party in a big country is to blame
because they didn't want a woman in office so they put up a candidate so
fundimentally stupid and he was voted in and now with rising deaths in
the country and now they can't get rid of him.

Tell you what let's get rid of violent games. I like violent movies but
they should be stopped too. A great movie trailer I saw was for Tom &
Jerry. Yes it is violent but it is a cartoon. Why should we watch movies
about killing then not think it in real life.

From 2000 I used a chat program on yahoo until about to 2006. Then
changed to one called tagged. where I met most of the girls. Met a
couple through facebook too.

Loved seeing movies at the drive-in or cinema. Saw a few great movies
up until 1978. The next movie I saw at a cinema was in 1989. Missed out
on a lot of great movies. Though now I have a great collection of dvd's,
CD's, records, tapes and videotapes. And Books.

2020.11.24 12:45 General1Holder Oregon Intervention

Subject: Oregon Intervention
From: Ty S - Oregonian
Date: 24 Nov 2020
To: the new Biden Administration Attention - the honorable Cedric Richmond Senior Advisor to the President
Greetings elected officials, diplomats, and honorable people,
Last time I wrote my elected officials it was under a circumstance of distress. I'm pleased to say that my experience with that situation was resolved with the help and assistance of some good people in public service. I dont write these letters often because Im often not feeling up to putting the kind of energy it requires to express the situation in terms that are solution oriented. But I seek solution oriented strategies often to remedy strife and stress that people in my community live with. It appears to be a time once again to update on the latest issue that we need serious intervention.
My name is Ty S I live in Portland Oregon with my wife and son. The experiences as a high school student was quintessential to a Black man growing up in Oregon but my story is unorthodox. My trajectory in education was similar to phil knight of nike as I share two of the four schools he attended: Cleveland High and U of O. So Im as Oregon as the swoosh, Powells, and the Rudolph sign. Politics is my life mostly having been involved in the Oregon students of color coalition and OSA in 2004 and Urban League in 2009 before going on to serve in the Oregon Health Authorities Transformation Center and the Oregon Advocacy Commissions. I'm particularly proud of my community organizing in the between 2004-2016 which includes electing Obama, helping Black Activist run for office, and building a grassroots community health worker project called We Are Health Movement. Once Trump came to power things changed dramatically for the worse in Oregon. Nearly all of my activism ended as a powerful racist insurgency became more visibly violent and threatening to the Black community.
Events of Portland Oregon 2020 require intense analysis. Im not a total alarmist about our situation like our media has gaslit and painted Oregon as a place on fire with leftist anarchists extremists. Please recognize that intervention can only be settled diplomatically at this point. We have lived and walked and witnessed a very violent escalation since 2016. Look at the evidence of tracking hate crimes in our state https://www.splcenter.org/hate-map?year=2016&state=OR . We should not be on this list. We have such a small populations of minorities including Black, Hispanic, Asian and Native populations and the many immigrant cultures are very small in overall numbers. The story behind these hate crimes is a way more then just isolated incidents there is a large scale and spreading networks of organizations that only purpose is to antagonize, disrupts, hate, punish and resort to violent intimidation and terrorism.
Hate groups in Oregon have dramatically grown in the last four years and as a political, social, and defensive response people have responded in a counter activity to keep those movements from growing further and pledge to end their reign of terror. It started in mid 2016 when Jeremy Christian a pre-radicalized activist with the Proud Boys murdered in 2 people on the Max Transit system (which is like our rail car). Jeremy Christian is part a new movement of internet organizers that have particularly recruited young white men to organizations like the oath keepers, 3 percenters, and inspired by the Bundy occupation movement of 2016. They are living in the shadows of Waco movement. Out west they love that shit and 2016 opened the door for growth of these right wing extremism. Oregon responded initially in Portland by counter protesting against the groups that would gather in various parts of the city including on the Federal freeway 213, Downtowns Terry Shrunk Plaza, and Tom Macall Park.
Each of the events in the summer of 2016 organized by violent right wing extremists involved heavy confrontation from counter protesters. This included verbal, physical, and organized violence. This was warfare in a small scale. But many things escalated. This history must include a contextualization of the types of organizations that began to sprout and grow on the opposition which I will categorize as the organized left until I describe it more fully. In Portland initially the ecumenical faith community, the non-profit activists, labor, and a variety of socialist organizations. Some of this coalition of organizations had previously collaborated against neoNazis in the 80s as resistance to hate before. The events of Jeremy Christian galvanized a large scale opposition that sought to resist racialized terrorism of that kind in our community. As events and confrontations continued to persist summer after summer after summer we are now where we are today. As the events continued the city of Portland often utilized the Portland Police Bureau as a referee of sorts to prevent wide scale violence. But there were many instances where people of Portland felt that Portland Police were more favorably protecting the right wing groups more and more the activists involved from the left lost favor with the city government, Police leadership and elected such as Ted Wheeler. The impasse really escalated between the city representatives and diplomats in political actions, contract negotiations for the police union contracted are included as a source of the strain and political tensions escalating.
The summer of 2020 was by far the most chaotic situation because the global movement for justice for George Floyd and Briana Taylor tied with Oregons #BLM picked up a new confrontation with the Police and state officers in downtown Portland. Oregon activists like many other states have been fighting for justice for many unarmed black men and women and those with mental illness shot and killed by the Portland, Vancouver, and Gresham police. Local movements converged it was a mashing of black activism in a new generation of young and emerging people for Black Lives with the Oregon defenders and anti fascists who had basically been in battle with right wing extremists continuously for 4 years. The combination produced energy seen no where else in the country. The City saw had over 130 days of continuous protest in a call for anti racism, justice for police murders, and anti capitalism oppression. Now I do not need to detail all of these events and how they were organized and what happened between the night to night. I do know that a lot has happened and most documenting and historicizing these events can tell that story. My purpose today is explain that there is a diplomatic intervention needed. We are desperate in this city for a focus of attention that doesn't involve us looking down the dark hole of a barrel.
There needs to be a peace tribunal set up in our city (similar to south africa). The need is so great out here. No convening, No conversations, Nothing seems to be working. Please help us out here and we don't need photo ops, only real commitment and work can solve anything we got out here. The pain is deep and the grievances are so numerous that our community might not heal for a generation.
We need peace in this city. We need peace. Peace between police and protesters and between the right wingers. There are some clear changes needed. Here are my suggestions that will give people a part of power.
Total and complete overhaul of the law enforcement in this country in the first step we must examine. The Portland Police contract needs a total revamp. All of there leadership needs to be changed. There is a certain segment of Portland that wont setter for less. The many proposals by thousands of activist in portland none of which has happened in the more then 4 years of advocacy: https://www.portlandmercury.com/blogtown/2020/06/09/28519183/all-of-the-... We need to accelerate these changes locally and nation wide. We are not an outlier here it is part and parcel of similar movements that started in Furgeson.
Even if you or your office got involved and moved the needle on any of these issues Portland still will need to grapple with its right wing violent extremism problem, because it is growing out of control with reports of continuous recruitment in the suburbarbs and nationwide show this. Oregon is the theater of a national program targeting this state as battle ground for the clash of extreme ideologies. What should we do about that? Well my feel is that its not important to most law enforcement or it really feels like it. The law cant really keep up with the type of warfare that is just as much virtual as it is physically in the streets. It will have to be part of a robust strategic initiative on a large scale organized nationally coordinated and well resourced. No longer can cities afford to build volunteer resistances to hate groups. There needs to be a common societal agreement on this in a new contract of acceptance of what is right and wrong in our communities. It is appropriate but it will also need alternative opportunities to get people out of those groups.
Violence is not ended here and we expect next year will be worse then this one and we live in fear for our lives. Black people in particular fear that violence is eminent in any outing, they must use precautions to protect themselves in this kind of violent political and social environment because your skin tone and or your social status is often the determinant factor. Hate crimes need national attention to end. We need a nation wide movement to end racism. Many of the right wing extremists are entrenched in their ideology and need an counter narrative that is stronger to inject alternative perspectives. But it might be too late for that here in Oregon we are at the point where violence and counter violence are yearly occurrences and it becomes a matter of desperation to even reach out to the federal government for help and support.
Oregon is my home that I spent most this year has required a high level of alertness and protection of my home and family. This is the first year we have seriously discussed leaving the United States because really feel unsafe for us to live here and thrive.
I hope this country can do something about our situation with both Policing and Hate before we dissolve into non stop tribal warfare and violence. This call to action and support will go to the high courts of international conflict.
Please help me forward this letter to leaders of every civil society.

2020.11.05 02:54 TheRazorX The new Astroturfing shill talking points, and their counters.

So yeah, the new DNC Shill-farm talking points are out, and the shills are once again working overtime. Here are a few of them with my personal responses, feel free to take what you want. If they're going to copy and paste talking points, we can copy-paste responses (but please don't do it unless you agree with the argument, let's not turn into them). I've tried to use "Dem friendly" sources to back my arguments, so these fucks can't use the "Bad source" argument.

"This is all your fault, if you fucks had voted for Biden, this wouldn't be so close."

Recommended Response:
"FUCKING A IT IS, maybe you should run policies we care about next time, instead of appealing to republicans, which despite millions spent, Hillary still did better with".

"This is all Bernie's fault, the "Socialist" stigma stuck, and we lost Florida because it turned off Cubans.

Recommended Response:
Or, you lost Florida because Florida isn't actually as "purple" as you pretend it is, and pretending that Bernie was going to lose it as justification on why he couldn't be the nominee, was just a smoke screen since effectively any Dem would've lost it. Honestly, it's highly likely this is the only way FL will ever "go Blue"
Biden won FL in the primary based on the heavily conservative white elderly vote. A vote that everyone knew based on polling data, was always skewed to Trump. A vote that as expected, Biden lost.. It's the Youth that overwhelmingly went to Bernie in the primary, that even kept Biden in the race, even though he regularly shit on them.. If not for "Bernie's people", Biden would've lost Florida in a landslide.
It seems like Bernie's people helped him win multiple places. Imagine that...
Furthermore Biden lost Florida while gaining 750k more votes than HRC did AND won the Latino vote in the state. If the "socialist stigma" is what caused his loss, then why did Biden outperform Hillary in terms of raw votes? And why would he STILL have lost had he kept up with HRC's Latino Margins?
And more importantly, why did Florida embrace leftist policies that Biden did not? Why did Florida Dems not embrace "leftist" policies that passed with ease?
In Miami-Dade which Centrists are crying about and saying it's "Bernie's fault Biden Lost it", literally elected Daniella Levine Cava for Country Mayor (the 1st female btw). Cava, is a non-hispanic woman that is known as a "Water warrior" because of her environment crusades, Founded the "Catalyst Miami" group that helps raise people out of poverty, who ran on (and stop me if this comes as a surprise); Climate change, supporting working families, affordable housing, public transit, supporting unions, Infrastructure, expanding services to the poor and elderly and gasp Criminal justice reform.
IMAGINE THAT?!
or how about that they elected leftist female Luisa Santos to the school board?
Maybe it isn't as conservative as you pretend it is.
Could it be that the majority of Latinos in the USA, had to flee from leftist countries destroyed by Neoliberal/Neocon policies, and we shouldn't assume that a minority of gluttonous class Latinos, pissed off that they lost their ill gotten inherited wealth, speak for the majority?
Maybe I dunno, hiring freaking Contras cheerleader Anna Navarro, who threatened an elected US official, for Latino outreach was a stupid idea?
Maybe I dunno, don't listen to the fucking over paid idiots that told you Bolivians would welcome a RW coup?
And even more amusingly is that "Bernie's people" (those "Young idiots" as you like to call them) literally gave Biden the win in Wisconsin as well.
And to make it even clearer; in 2008 Obama who was labelled a Kenyan Socialist Muslim and ran as an unapologetic progressive against the "respected and beloved" John McCain, won;
  • Wisconsin by 400K votes
  • Michigan by 800k votes
  • North Carolina by 20K votes
  • Florida by 140K votes
  • Pennsylvania by 600k votes
Meanwhile Biden running against "The worst president in history" is barely squeaking out wins, even with record turn out.

AND/OR

No, it's because you're saboteurs. Harry S Truman in his address at the National Convention Banquet of the Americans for Democratic Action May 17, 1952 said;
We are getting a lot of suggestions to the effect that we ought to water down our platform and abandon parts of our program. These, my friends, are Trojan horse suggestions. I have been in politics for over 30 years, and I know what I am talking about, and I believe I know something about the business. One thing I am sure of: never, never throw away a winning program. This is so elementary that I suspect the people handing out this advice are not really well-wishers of the Democratic Party.
Since you're one step away from this, I'd rather listen to Truman. Especially considering there's absolutely no doubt that progressive policies are overwhelmingly popular, and your watered down policies are not

"It's because America is still a racist, bigoted place!!"

Or is it because like we've been preaching for decades, Americans actually care about policy over platitudes?
During a record turnout election;
If it's all about Racism, then why did Trump make significant gains among POCs?
If it was about bigotry, why did Trump DOUBLE his LGBT support from 2016?
In fact, why did Trump literally do better with Every single race except White Men when compared to 2016?
In fact, why did Trump just win the highest share of non-white support of any Republican in 60 years?!?!?!.

"It's because POC men like Trump's toxic masculinity!!"

Well, then why did Biden's Machismo not help him then??
Furthermore, let's assume this is correct. We knew from January that voters didn't consider "Race relations", "LGBT", or "Abortion" or even "Immigration" as highly as they do Healthcare, gun policy, Education, the Economy and even Terrorism and national security.
So exactly why didn't Biden do more to capture said "Toxic masculinity" vote? It wouldn't have been hard, he'd just have had to focus on Healthcare, Terrorism and national security, Gun policy, and Education in that order.
This was even further confirmed in October, although Race relations and Covid response jumped up a bit.
Furthermore Karen, can you stop it with the soft racism already? Next you'll be saying those men are all misogynists and other RW dog whistles. I mean, it's not your first time, and it's not like one of your lot haven't already advocated for collective punishment of POCs. (even though they did in fact end up voting for your zombie.)

"It's because America is just a conservative country, that's the truth of it"

No it Really is not, in fact, it only "Became conservative" when the party lost its mind after Reagan and the only choices available became Right Wing, or further Right Wing. We haven't had a LW choice in decades.
Clinton really only won because of Ross Perot, and yet his win was used as irrevocable proof of "Americans being conservative", yet somehow Obama's legendary 2008 wasn't at all an indication of "Americans being Leftists".

"Bernie would've hurt us down ballot!!"

Oh? Even if appealing to republicans has actually helped Biden, It's obvious it hurt the down ballot. As it stands, Dems have failed to gain the senate (Of the 35 Senate seats up for grabs, 23 were Republican-held and 12 were Democrat) and only freaking won ONE seat. ONE. AND they LOST seats in the house., in fact, Dems have literally lost down ballot districts that Biden DID win, because assuming that republicans that DO hate Trump will fall in love with Democrats is utter stupidity and absolutely naive.
Furthermore, even with record breaking fundraising, and high turn out, they still failed.
Democrat Jaime Harrison, a former top aide to longtime South Carolina Rep. James Clyburn and a one-time South Carolina Democratic Party chair, lost to Lindsey Graham 54.72% to 43.88% with DOUBLE the turn out of 2014, at a difference of 264,936 votes, while in 2014 Brad Hutto lost to Graham at 54.27% to 38.78%, at a difference of 192,008 votes.
The core difference?
Hutto spent $522,454 compared to Graham's $11,464,087 in 2014
In 2020? Harrison spent $104,092,829 to Graham's $60,015,745 , and still lost at a roughly close margin (72,928 difference between 2014 and 2020).
And that's not the only example;
In Maine, with Ranked choice voting (so no spoiler bullshit), Sara Gideon who raised $68,577,474 and spent $47,908,382, Lost heavily to fucking Susan Collins who raised $26,511,555 and spent $23,010,418
Mind you, this is the same Maine that go RCV passed, and passed two ballot measures in July, one that " Authorizes $15 million in bonds for high-speed internet infrastructure" and the other that "Authorizes $105 million in bonds for transportation infrastructure projects" and Maine is a fucking 47% Democrat state.
And those are just some of the higher profile ones. In Florida, Dems lost five state house seats.
They won the Michigan legislature, but were blown out in Texas. Texas results were pretty sad actually
In fact, even in the House, Again despite record fundraising, GOP members managed to hold onto seats in districts that Trump LOST, while so far, Dems haven't been able to flip a SINGLE republican seat in the House, while losing 20 of their most vulnerable.

Not. A. Single. One.

(And no, guaranteed pickups created by court-ordered redistricting in North Carolina do not count as "flipping a seat")
So remember that centrist argument about how "Progressives can't flip republican seats"? Well apparently neither can "Establishment dems" even with a ton of $$$$$.
And that's not even getting into other super heavily funded races like Amy McGrath, where McGrath raised $88,098,919 and spent $73,353,803, while McConnell raised $55,500,677 and spent $43,947,731..
McGrath, who won the primary, was still utterly bloodied by Charles Booker who was operating with a fraction of her resources. She literally outspent her opponents combined through June by a margin of nearly 30-1. In fact she touted her fundraising as a reason why she could beat McConnnell.
She ended up beating Booker 45.4% to 42.6% in the primary, at a difference of 15,149 votes.
And pissed away 44 million to lose to McConnell's 58.2% to 37.8% a difference of 429,020 votes.
All in all, Dem Senate fundraising was by all accounts record-breaking, with high amounts of small dollar donations, and they still did poorly. And by record breaking I mean absurdly so
And yes of course Super PACS are a thing, and candidate spending isn't everything, but let's not pretend that Dems under the stewardship of Biden, were shy about soliciting corporate money.
Meanwhile a non-binary veiled female black Muslim won a seat in Oklahoma's legislature (a 1st)., Mauree who was first endorsed by Illhan Omar (And tbf, later on Warren and Buttigieg endorsed her as well), unapologetically ran her campaign on... Criminal justice reform, a higher minimum wage, and healthcare. She didn't run on "Not Trump"
And DSA backed candidates have won 85% of their races, and the majority of Ballot initiatives they championed passed. Imagine that.
Yet so far, every Democrat that has lost, has been a "conservative" or "Moderate" democrat. (thanks for the heads up gjohnsit)
But Sara McBride, Mark Kelly, and Hickenlooper winning is such a great win, right?
I mean honestly, why would anyone expect otherwise from the man that was part of the Administration that lost 1000s of legislative seats? They got wiped out then, and this year in a census year, they got wiped out down-ballot. That's an absolute fucking disaster.
[Of course they'll probably follow it up with how down ballot results would be worse, which in that case just show them the Fox news exit polls again or just smack them with a trout.]

"Biden got more votes than anyone, that proves we're right!!!"

No, it just proves scaring people works. In poll after poll, 60-80% of Biden supporters reported that they're voting AGAINST Trump rather than FOR Biden, something that has remained consistent since he "won" the primary.
And this is also something I'd honestly be surprised if you even try to argue, because Biden's entire campaign, Jill Biden, VBNMW, Even Biden himself......etc have all been laser focused on defeating Trump, with everything else being considered secondary.
In other words, you made this case, and now you're trying to discredit your own case yourselves.
You can't have it both ways.
I'll add more as I get them/You correct me, and I'll likely continue to edit this to add links and such.
Oh and Biden Shills? Please please PLEASE try to counter my arguments, Either you convince me, or (more likely) I make my arguments stronger, either way is a win imo.

2020.08.21 23:06 Quirky-Motor EXTENSIVE two-part write up. The murder of Laci Peterson- is there really reasonable doubt? The end of the prosecution case and defense's case. Part 2 of 2. Please read part 1 first for the prosecution case and background.

Other info used by the prosecution
What Laci was wearing when she went missing is somewhat of a mystery. Laci was found in tan maternity capris and a maternity bra. Her sister Amy, the last person who saw Laci conclusively, said she was wearing tan maternity capris, a floral blouse, and dress shoes when she saw Laci on the evening of the 23rd. Those clothes were found in the home during the search warrant. The blouse was in the hamper and the pants were in the hanging in the closet. Laci was found in very similar pants to the ones she was wearing on the 23rd, she may have had two pairs of the same pants. She was not found in a white shirt or black pants like Scott and neighbors claimed she as wearing. This was the outfit on Laci’s missing poster.
Scott refused to get Laci’s dental records for Modesto PD for weeks. He made excuses such as he didn’t know the address or couldn’t remember which dentist she went to. When police got the records, it showed that Scott and Laci went to the same dentist.
Scott never inventoried Laci’s things. When he discovered she was missing he never looked to see if she took her purse, cell phone, or coat with her on her walk.
At the home an open bottle of ranch dressing was on the counter on the night of the 24th. When asked Scott said he didn’t like ranch dressing and that it was for Laci’s pizza, which they ate the night before.
The Rochas wanted to retrieve some of Laci’s things such as mementos and Laci’s diary from the Peterson home, but Scott would not comply. Scott replied by getting a security system and Lee said the Rochas could not have these things because they were “Scott’s property.” Scott called the security company for his house and made sure the company knew “no Rochas” was his policy. Sharon later broke into the house to get these things- no charges were filed against the Rochas.
Scott tried to sell he and Laci’s home only three weeks after Laci went missing. He asked realtors to keep the story out of the press and wanted the house sold as is, completely furnished, with everything in it. Despite this he still would not give the Rochas Laci’s things such as her wedding dress, diary, or décor from the home.
There has been much debate over whether or not Scott wanted to have a baby or not and his behavior shows both a doting father and a bachelor playboy, depending on who you ask. At one-point Scott was talking to Anne Marie Rocha, Brent’s wife when he told her that he “was hoping for infertility” in the middle of Laci’s struggle to get pregnant. She thought it was a weird joke. On a home video of a holiday, Scott has to hold a baby for a few minutes and says “well this isn’t very fun” Laci says, “this is the only time you’ll see him do that (hold a baby)” and laughs. Scott told Amber Frey that he was so adamant about not having a child he wanted to get a vasectomy. Adversely, others have mentioned that Scott did want a baby. He painted Conner’s nursery and when Laci was trying to conceive, he got a Viagra prescription to make sure they would be able to have sex when she was ovulating.
In January 2003, Sharon Rocha called Scott to inform him that in a Jan. search of the bay searchers did not find Laci, only an anchor. Scott seems to whistle in relief. The conversation was so unsettling it was played for the jury.
Throughout the investigation Scott never participated in any public events for his wife. He refused to talk at vigils, on the news, or even get his photograph taken by local reporter Ted Rowlands. This was surprising to Rowlands as most missing people get very little press and when they do loved ones typically jump at the opportunity to spread the word about their missing relatives. Eventually, Scott contacted Gloria Gomez and gave a total of four interviews. In these interviews Scott said things like "I loved Laci" past tense and other statements which made him look bad to the public.
In January det. Grogan asked Scott again if he had had any affairs. Scott said no and Grogan produced a picture of Scott and Amber. Scott peered at the photo for a while and then responded, “Is that supposed to be me?”
In early January, when Laci had been missing for three weeks, Scott called dish network and added the Playboy channel to his subscription. Four days later he canceled the channel and instead added the TENXtsy channel, a hardcore porn channel instead which cost I believe an extra $12.99 monthly. This was for the TV in the living room. He canceled the channel on February 18th 2003, the day a search warrant was to be executed in his home. He told the dish network he was cancelling because he was moving abroad. One documentary claims that the police bought the subscription to frame Scott. Like many other tidbits in this story alone it doesn’t mean much but it shows how Scott was behaving as if his wife was not coming home.
Before his arrest Scott was staying with his half-sister Anne Bird in San Diego. While there Scott’s came on to Anne’s babysitter and made her mixed drinks, he called flirtinis. Jackie Peterson also said to the babysitter “I hope Scott can meet a nice girl like you.” The behavior of both Scott and Jackie was so outrageous and inappropriate the babysitter never came back.
Scott had two debit cards. One was linked to a PayPal account that Laci did not know about. He used this account to buy things for his various girlfriends.
Scott bought Ayiana, Amber’s daughter a pop-up book for Christmas. This book was purchased for Conner by Scott’s sister and given to Laci at Conner’s baby shower.
There were some rumors in this case that Laci had previously also had an affair with a man who worked at her gym. These rumors were unable to be verified by either the prosecution or the defense and no evidence to support this theory was ever found.
When patrol officers first entered the house, they noticed the defense attorney ad was open in the phone book on the kitchen counter. Later tests showed that the phone book naturally opened to several different ads because of how the pages were designed. This ad was one of those pages.
On Dec. 25th Lee Peterson made sure that Scott had an attorney, and was no longer speaking to anyone within the police department. This made some think that Lee was suspicious of his son from the beginning. Others have said that Lee was simply being proactive.
By February police told Laci’s family that they had cleared all of Laci’s family members… with the exclusion of Scott.
Chris Pixley and Richard Cole are two journalists who are always interviewed in documentaries about the case. Both men stayed with the Petersons and were planning on helping the Petersons write a book about the case after Scott was exonerated. Both men attended the trial on family passes.>
Laci’s family supported Scott for the first few weeks of the investigation.
After the testimony of over 100 prosecution witnesses, the Defense’s presented this case
Laci was alive and well on the morning of the 24th when Scott left for work and she met with foul play outside her home that morning. There were a variety of theories pushed forward.
  1. One was that Laci was accosted when she confronted the men robbing the Medina house across the street at approximately 11:40 am on Christmas eve. This is corroborated by a witness, Diane Jackson, who saw a van in the area at that time.
  2. Another was she was attacked in the park by either a sex offender or because of her nice jewelry.
  3. The third was that Laci was abducted by a family in a brown van who used her for some type of Satanic ritual.
Mark Geragos, Scott’s million-dollar celebrity attorney said in his opening statement that he would produce witnesses who saw Laci walking that morning, witnesses who saw Scott’s empty boat, and a witness who saw a pregnant woman being pushed into a van (a man named Tom Harshman), but none of these witnesses were produced at trial.
Timeline and theories
Early on in the case the defense scored major points by showing the jury that it was likely Laci was alive on Christmas eve, which was contrary to the prosecution who tried to show that Laci died on the evening of the 23rd. The defense showed this by demonstrating that Scott watched Martha Stewart that morning, and because Scott described Laci wearing clothes witnesses saw her in that day, white shirt and black pants. They also pointed to the fact that the dog was found with a leash on and that Laci’s curling iron was out on the counter. The computer evidence such as the online shopping on the computer that morning added to this theory. Geragos also told the jury that the prosecution could not answer how Laci was murdered, when she murdered, or where she was murdered with any detail at all. All of these things made the prosecution look like bumbling idiots and the jury was impressed.
Geragos also showed that Modesto PD had not interviewed all area sex offenders in an effort to show reasonable doubt. Brocchini explained that he did not interview all sex offenders because some were so elderly, but the damage was done. In another prosecution guffaw, it was revealed that not all witnesses who saw Laci that morning were formally interviewed by the police. Modesto PD claimed that it was impossible to interview every person, but that mistake was another piece in the puzzle that showed that perhaps, the police had tunnel vision in this case.
Geragos also tried to display that the men who robbed the Medina house were good suspects. The Medinas who lived on Covena Ave. left their home at 10:32 am on Christmas eve and did not return until the afternoon of the 26th when they discovered they had been robbed. Assuming that the robbery happened on the 24th and not the 25th or 26th like the robbers later claimed, it is believed the burglary happened at about 11:40 am, after the Medinas left for the Christmas holiday. This time is corroborated by a neighbor named Diane Jackson who saw three “dark skinned but not African American” men behind a van in front of the Medinas’ home at this time. Police put out a reward for information and got a break within days.
Steven Todd and Donald Pearce were arrested for the robbery on January 2nd 2003 after trying to sell some valuables from the Medina’s home. When apprehended the first words out of Steven Todd’s mouth was “I didn’t have anything to do with the pregnant girl.” The defense has always reasoned that the police should have pursued this exclamation, but they didn’t. Both men pleaded guilty to the robbery but claimed it happened Christmas day or early on the 26th, not on the 24th. Modesto PD asserted that they cleared these men as they believed the robbery happened later, after Laci was already missing. The defense and Scott’s family believe the burglary took place on the 24th and the criminals lied about the date to distance themselves from Laci’s disappearance.
This theory was somewhat strengthened by the statement of Russell Graybill, the Petersons’ mailman. Graybill testified that when he delivered a package to the Peterson’s home between 10:35 and 10:50 am. McKenzie did not bark at him. Graybill testified at trial that McKenzie normally barked at him but he didn’t bark on Christmas eve. This was shown to “prove” that Laci was walking him at that time.
Scott supporters have touted two other pieces of evidence to prove this theory. The first piece of the evidence in this story involved the fact that in January a woman who knew the burglars pawned a Croton watch similar to the one Laci had and was presumably wearing. The problem with the watch “evidence” lies in the pawn ticket. The pawned watch is not listed as having diamonds embedded into it like Laci’s did, casting doubt onto this idea that the watch was Laci’s. The second piece of evidence is much more compelling. From scottpetersonappeal.org,
“Yet another concerning tip came from a Lt. Aponte who worked in a California prison. He called Modesto Police to report a monitored phone conversation that one of their inmates had with his brother, who lived in Modesto. The brother told the inmate that Laci had confronted the burglars who were robbing the house directly across the street from where she lived. That house was, in fact, robbed the day Laci went missing. This conversation was recorded by the prison. Not only has the Modesto Police Department never handed over any follow up on the tip from Lt. Aponte, the tape has been lost.” This is a thought-provoking piece of evidence, but I am not sure it proves anything conclusively. ​
The problems with the “Laci confronted the burglars” theory are numerous. The timeline would go something like this. Laci leashes up McKenzie who gets out and wanders in the street until found by Karen Servas at 10:18 am. Servas puts McKenzie away and then later Laci walks McKenzie through the park where she is seen by witnesses. Laci returns home, puts McKenzie away (but keeps the leash on) and takes off her shoes. She either changes clothes or later the robbers re-dress her. Then shoeless, Laci at 8 months pregnant waddles across the street and confronts either 2 or 3 male burglars without even her dog for protection. (PS the men are breaking into the home in the middle of the day). The men kill her, rob the house, change Laci into a new outfit, only a maternity bra and tan capris, and dump her in the ocean ninety miles away EXACTLY where Scott Peterson was fishing. It is also important to note that the defense did not call any witnesses who could bolster this theory except Graybill.
Another possible theory floated by Scott supporters and the defense was the idea that Laci was kidnapped while in the park. One witness, Diana Campos, who worked at a hospital that abuts the park (only three blocks from the Peterson house) remembers seeing a pregnant woman walking a Golden Retriever in the park at 10:30 am on Christmas eve. The woman was struggling to control the dog, who was barking incessantly. A man in a beanie apparently yelled at the woman “Shut that f*cking dog up!”
The problem with this theory is that both the Modesto PD and Scott’s attorneys interviewed this woman and chose to NOT call her to testify at trial. I believe if the lead was credible, the woman would have testified for the defense. Another issue is the timeline and the details of the sighting. For this sighting to work we have to ignore Karen Servas’ testimony. If this woman in the park was Laci, she must have gotten McKenzie from the yard after McKenzie escaped then walked to the park where she encountered someone who wanted to harm her. This person then would have had to return Laci’s shoes to the house, re dressed her, put McKenzie in the backyard and then dump her body in the ocean ninety miles away EXACTLY where Scott Peterson was fishing.
A third possibility was mostly pushed by Matt Dalton, an attorney who worked on Scott’s case but was fired before trial. Geragos kicked Dalton off the case because Dalton was obsessed with the idea that a satanic cult kidnapped Laci and another woman, Evelyn Hernandez. I think Geragos did not want this to be mentioned at trial and focused on other angles, but this still needs to be discussed. As mentioned above a woman was raped in Modesto in the week before Laci’s disappearance. The victim called a crisis line and reported that she had been raped by a group of people in a brown van and that the assault was part of a Satanic ritual. The abductors then told the woman that they were going to commit a Christmas murder that she would “read about in the papers.” The police found the people and van in question and processed the brown van for evidence, surprisingly no evidence of any crime was found in the van. When the police were done with the vehicle, Geragos bought the van, but he never found anything or used the van at trial- leading spectators to believe that the van held no evidentiary value.
Other proof for this theory is mostly found in Dalton’s book about the case. Matt Dalton first dreamed up this theory when went to a bar in Modesto one night where he interviewed some young locals about the goings on in Modesto. After seeing some people in skull t-shirts playing Dungeons and Dragons, Dalton asked about cult activity. The people told him that Modesto had Satanists, including a weird family who lived in a brown van. Dalton then learned that Dec. 24th is a holy day in the Satanic calendar and thus he extrapolated that Satanists did sacrifices on this day. He also discovered that May 1st, the day Evelyn was last seen was also a Satanic holiday. He soon became obsessed with this idea that Laci was abducted for a ritualistic purpose. Once Laci’s body was found Matt Dalton walked along the beach where he found some weird paintings on rocks and determined this was where rituals were taking place. (The paintings ended up being a strange art installation by a group called The Bulb.) He also found a police report that someone had reported finding a bucket of organs on the beach, but this has never been independently verified. Dalton surmised that these were Laci’s organs as she was found mostly skeletonized and had very few organs left.
Dalton is famous for connecting Laci’s case to the case of Evelyn Hernandez. This piece of evidence is talked about online extensively and is used to show that pregnant women were going missing and being found headless in San Francisco bay. While it is a strange coincidence, what documentaries and Pro Scott pundits never tell you is that Evelyn’s case has a prime suspect and it is not a serial killer or a Satanist family, it is Evelyn’s boyfriend, Herman Aguilera. This man is presumed to have killed Evelyn when she was only one week from giving birth, on May 1st 2002. As friends and family later discovered Evelyn was Herman’s “other woman.” Evelyn did not know her boyfriend was married. According to Aguilera’s family Herman did not want to deal with a pregnant mistress or want another child. Evelyn was last seen at a gas station frequented by Herman. Tragically, Evelyn’s son Alexis age 5, and her full-term baby boy, Fernando disappeared with her and have never been found.
The problem with this satanic angle is that it is far-fetched and does not explain most of the evidence. If Laci was abducted, where? Was she walking down the street in the mid-morning when some Satan worshippers happened to drive by and abduct her, put the dog in the yard, put her shoes in the house, changed her clothes and then dumped her body in ocean just where Scott Peterson was fishing? And what about Evelyn? Were these same people driving by as she and her son went to a gas station near Aguilera’s home in the middle of the afternoon? As I said this theory doesn’t hold water, but it important to explore.
Rush to judgement
Another thing focused on heavily by the defense was the idea that the Modesto PD “rushed to judgement” and wanted to nail Scott from the beginning. The defense asserted that this began with officer Evers saying that home was “suspicious” at 6 pm to his superior. Geragos and team asserted that this was improper and created tunnel vision in the department.
The Modesto police has always held that they simply followed the evidence and focused on the most likely suspect, Scott. After all it was not just Evers who thought the scene was suspicious. It was Evers, Spurlock, other patrol officers, Brocchini, Laci’s friends, Amy Rocha, Sergeant Duerfeldt, neighbor Karen Servas and others. If the Modesto PD wanted to frame someone, as sad as it is, they could have framed the Medina burglars and no one would have batted an eye. But they didn’t.
Other evidence used by the defense
Laci sightings
Approximately 12 people called the MPD to report seeing a woman who matched Laci’s description walking a dog on the morning of the 24th within one mile of the Peterson home. The prosecution called four women to the stand who were dog walkers who lived in the vicinity of the Peterson home at the time of the disappearance to account for some of these sightings. Most people saw Laci or someone who resembled her in black leggings and a white top, the same outfit she was in on her missing posters. However, when she was found she was wearing tan maternity capri pants and a maternity bra only. According to the Petersons, nine of these witnesses were never interviewed by a detective. What they don’t tell you is that a patrol officer and the DA’s investigators did some of the interviews. Nevertheless, not all people who called in with witness sightings were interviewed which helped the defense. Let’s look at these witnesses who we know about.
The people interviewed in the documentary The Murder of Laci Peterson were apparent “witnesses” who were never interviewed by the police and were not called at trial. Why? Because when Geragos interviewed them he found them to be unreliable, confused, or just wrong. Homer Maldonado claimed to have seen Laci walking the dog three times…during times she was proven to be elsewhere. Maldonado also refused to be interview by police. Because of this he was not called. Vivian Mitchell was another witness who claimed she saw Laci walking the dog on Dec. 24th. She then specified she knew exactly the time because she saw Laci during the football game on TV, but there were no football games on TV on the 24th. Vivian was also 80 years old and her husband was 84. Her husband Bill told police he did not remember ever seeing Laci. Mike Chiavetta remembered seeing a woman walking a Golden Retriever in La Loma park on the most likely 24th but said that it was a bright sunny day and the park was filled with people. It was misty and overcast on the 24th although the 23rd was bright and sunny. Scott supporters will have you believe that Laci was abducted right after the Chiavetta sighting even though Chiavetta claims the park was filled with people that day. Also, Chiavetta never reported he saw Laci, he saw a woman in a white shirt walking a Golden Retriever. When asked if she was pregnant, he said “I don’t know.” Tom Harshman is the man who saw a pregnant woman pushed into a van on the 24th of December, however police documentation says this was not reported until the 28th. In between 2 and 4 pm, he saw a woman in a red shirt and black pants urinating against a fence. There was a man standing over her and she looked scared. Then he saw a hand reach out of a van and pull the woman into the van. The tip was not investigated by the Modesto police department because they circumstance, location, and clothing did not fit. Either way Geragos interviewed many of the witness and didn’t call any of them. He said specifically he would call Harshman, but he didn’t.
Conner’s live birth and condition of the bodies
One thing that is brought up often by the defense is information brought forth by their expert that Conner was alive for one week following Laci’s disappearance. The defense believed Conner was born alive and died at a different date, or that Laci and Conner were alive after Laci was abducted. They also like to talk about twine, or tape that was wrapped around Conner’s body. Laci’s body also had trace amounts of caffeine present even though Laci gave up caffeine during her pregnancy.
Laci and Conner were found in the same area but separately on different days. Laci was badly decomposed; barnacles were on her bones and most of her organs except parts of her uterus were gone. There was a large hole in her womb from decomposition. Conner was somewhat decomposed but he was fully intact. The medical examiner thought this was because he was protected inside of Laci until her uterus decomposed expelling him into the bay. The medical examiner could find no cause of death for Laci and ruled that Conner died due to his mother’s death at approximately 33 weeks gestation. Conner seemed to be inside of Laci until shortly before he was found. The medical examiner explained to the jury that Conner most likely floated out of his mother’s abdomen due to gasses building up in her body. Additionally, his umbilical cord was torn, not cut or clamped and he had no injuries of any kind. He was not even bruised. Further, Laci’s cervix was closed indicating she had not given birth recently. The ME also explained that there was 28 cm worth of tape around Conner’s torso, head, and shoulders. It is not a nice neat bow but rather a tangled length of tape or twine. To me it actually looks like the remains of a plastic shopping bag.
The defense has always argued that this twine was wrapped around his body on purpose by someone, although they cannot explain the function of the twine. Picture here- http://pwc-sii.com/Research/connetwine.htm. (PS this is from a website called Scott is Innocent just fair warning). They also cannot explain how Conner died as he was not even bruised. On cross examination the ME admitted that it was “possible” Conner was born alive. He also admitted it was possible he had lived longer than his mother. He could not conclusively rule out those things even though they were improbable. The defense saw this as a win and brought in their own expert to testify.
Dr. March, the defense expert is not a medical examiner or a forensic pathologist; he is fertility doctor who helps couples get pregnant. Using the same methods as the ME, which involves using ultrasound pictures and measuring the baby’s femur, Dr. March determined that Conner was 33 weeks gestation, BUT he also decided that when Laci went missing, she was only 32 weeks pregnant meaning she had survived a whole week after her disappearance. How did Dr. March know this? Dr. March pushed Laci’s conception date forward six days because “women always talk about these things.” Dr. March heard that Laci attended a baby shower for a friend on June 8th and did not tell her friends that she was pregnant. Because of this he surmised that Laci must have learned about her pregnancy on June 9th meaning her conception date was the last week of May. This was the evidence used to prove Conner was alive until the end of December.
Not surprisingly March was destroyed on cross examination. He admitted he did not know about decomposition or autopsies and was not an expert in those fields. He also admitted he really had no way to know when Laci got pregnant and he was just guessing from her behavior when she got pregnant. At one point he even said during cross “Cut me some slack!” when they were grilling him. By the end of his examination he was saying “I’m sorry” and “I really don’t know” To most questions. He was not a good witness and his blunders were some of the biggest in the trial.
Concrete
The defense always held that the missing concrete in Scott’s warehouse was used to repair the driveway and not used to make anchors for Laci’s body. The prosecution brought a petrographer to the stand who testified that the cement was not the same in the driveway as it was in the anchors- they had different chemical compositions. The defense also brought an expert to the stand who testified that the concrete samples weren’t the same…but they were very similar to one another. Gebler the defense expert testified that the driveway sample could have been different because it picked up debris already on the driveway.
Boat evidence
The final evidence that is brought up by the defense was an experiment conducted by Geragos’ investigators. They bought a boat similar to Scott’s and filmed someone trying to throw a 100 lbs. object off the boat. The experiment was meant to show that the boat was too small and throwing a person off the side would capsize a boat. At trial an expert fisherman testified that in order to throw a body off a boat that size you had to do it from the back of the boat, not the side. Nevertheless, Geragos wanted his video to be admitted at trial, but it was not.
The critical thing to note here is that this video was never meant to be admitted into evidence, it was a media stunt. Geragos sent this video to the media and then placed a similar boat two blocks from the court house and invited people to see how small it was. According to a book written by the jury after the trial, Geragos did this stunt to try to distract, confuse, or accidentally bias the jury in hopes of getting a mistrial. It did not work and the trial went on. The boat also backfired on Geragos as it became a shrine to Laci and baby Conner. Here’s the defense’s video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=x03H94jjDGQ.
Amber was the aggressor
One thing that Scott’s apologists will often bring up is the fact that Scott wasn't really in love with Frey and that Amber was the “aggressor” in that relationship. Some people, like Matt Dalton have said things like “Scott wouldn’t leave Laci for Amber. Laci was way more attractive!” (yes, he really made that claim). They try to show that Amber aggressively pursued Scott even when he was trying to distance himself from her. They believe that Scott’s lies to Amber such as “I will be in Maine for Christmas” were his attempts to ditch her. They also make a fuss because on Dec. 26th Amber called Scott several times on the same day which proves that she was obsessed with him. Whether or not this is the case it doesn't really matter because Scott is a grown man who could have broken it off with Amber or even ghosted her at any point but he didn't. He chose to call Amber after Laci was missing, he continued to speak to Amber, and he continued seeing Amber in person. Further, he kept lying to her hoping she would not find out about his missing pregnant wife.
Whether Amber was Scott’s soul mate, a one-night stand, or a girl he took out to lunch a few times an affair is an affair. Scott did not have to be completely and utterly in love was Amber in order for that to be a motive for him to kill his wife. In my completely amateur opinion, Scott wasn't in love with Amber at all. Scott was in love with being a player who could do whatever he wanted and wife and child was getting in the way of that lifestyle.
Scott’s history of non-violence
One interesting thing that the defense uncovered was Scott’s history of non-violence. Going through school records the defense was able to show that Scott had absolutely no history of violence. Not even a school yard fist fight. Most spouse killers have a history of domestic violence, but Scott did not. In fact, most people remember Scott as being passive in his marriage, not angry or violent.
Scott would not plead down
In “Presumed Guilty” Dalton explains that he questioned Scott extensively and asked him if something happened, such as an accident or a domestic violence situation that lead to Laci’s death. Dalton thought that if this was the case Scott could plead to a lesser charge. Scott was adamant this was not the case and insisted he had nothing to do with Laci’s demise. Scott insisted on pleading not guilty.
Brocchini’s bad testimony
One thing that aided the defense in the trial was the testimony of Al Brocchini. Brocchini made several mistakes on the stand and the defense showed that four specific parts of Brocchini’s testimony were lies. Brocchini lied about one witness who he said he contacted. He also lied (or was confused) about the times certain tips came in to the tip line. Finally, he chose not to include one witnesses (Ms. O’Donnell) statement in his reports. This damaged Brocchini’s testimony and was a win for the defense. When asked about this the jury said that this was not a good look for the state, but it wasn’t Brocchini’s testimony that convinced them that Scott was guilty, it was detective Grogan’s. And of course, Scott’s own behavior and movements that day.
Five women who were pregnant went missing
Another piece of evidence spread around by Scott apologists is the fact that five pregnant women, seven if you include Evelyn and Laci, went missing in the time around Laci’s disappearance. Additionally, it was touted that these women all went missing from Northern California and area where 15 million people reside. Five women would be an interesting coincidence if they went missing from Modesto, or even the same county, but this is not the case.
Pregnant woman heckled
In one documentary on the case a pregnant woman in Modesto claimed that on Christmas eve, 2002 when she was heavily pregnant, she was opening her shop at about 11:00 am when she was “heckled” by two men. The incident made her uncomfortable enough that she got a male co-worker who told the men to get lost. While this is an interesting piece of information it doesn’t prove anything.
Not enough time to commit the murders
Some of Scott’s supporters will tell you that Scott had no time to commit these murders because his whereabouts were known for all of the day on Christmas eve. First, this assumes Laci was killed during Scott’s timeline which obviously wasn’t going account for this. Second, it does not explore the possibility that Scott killed his wife before 8:30am on the 24th when Scott said he got up for the day.
Incompetent legal counsel
There are also some people who are concerned that Mark Geragos was incompetent as Scott’s attorney. Mark Geragos has represented Michael Jackson, Winona Ryder, Jussie Smolet, Robert Clinton, Chris Brown and many other prominent clients. In general, he argues down and makes sure his clients never land in jail but rather get counseling, probation, and community service. Geragos may be cocky, but he is far from incompetent.
Tried in the court of public opinion
You cannot talk about this case without mentioning that Scott Peterson was tried in the court of public opinion. There is no denying this and an unbiased jury was hard to compile. But if history has shown us anything it is that good attorneys can keep hated clients (OJ Simpson, Casey Anthony) out of jail. Scott’s representation was the best of the best and he was still convicted.
The jury and the rush to judgment angle
The jury actually thought about this in deliberations pretty extensively. This idea of rush to judgement was woven through the opening statement as well as Geragos’ performance in the early weeks of the trial. In those first few weeks most jurors agreed that acquittal was on the horizon. Not only did the Modesto police seem to have tunnel vision, they made some extensive mistakes, and Geragos presented information in a much more interesting and compelling way. He made big promises to show Scott as “stone cold innocent” and vowed to bring witnesses who would break the case wide open. But after months of testimony and no compelling witnesses the jury had to convict because it wasn’t about who was more entertaining to watch. It was about the fact that 1) Scott was fishing in the vicinity of Laci’s body. 2) Scott washed himself and his clothes before even calling his missing wife. 3) Scott was the last person to see Laci alive. 4) And that Scott had a means, motive, and opportunity like no one else did. Although the jury were rubbed the wrong way by Scott’s demeanor, Scott was not convicted because the jury simply thought he seemed like he was lying or had bad character.
Random Info
Who’s is supporting Scott?
Scott’s supporters are mainly women most notably his sister Susan Caudillo, and his sister in law Janey Peterson. They run several websites and blogs about the case and call themselves the SPA (Scott Peterson Appeal) team. Their websites are linked below. They have explanations for everything Scott did in this case and spew their beliefs all over the internet.
The SPA team has pushed forward other suspects besides the ones discussed at trial. Laci’s family are some of their favorite suspects. Ron Grantski, Brent Rocha, Dennis Rocha, Amber Frey, and Amy Rocha have all been mentioned as possible suspects. For example, the SPA team throws suspicion on Dennis Rocha as Dennis had “deep-seated hatred” towards Scott. How do they know this? During his victim impact statement at the end of the trial Dennis said to Scott “You always thought you were better than us.” Apparently, this shows that Dennis had the motive to kill Laci or something. I don’t know their explanations are bizarre.
Why is Scott getting an appeal and maybe a new trial?
Scott is getting an appeal and maybe a new trial for two reasons. First, Scott gets a series of appeals because he was sentenced to death. It is routine for death row inmates to get a variety of appeals before their execution. The reason that Scott is possibly getting a new trial is because of issues with the jury in the first trial. As discussed above the case was incredibly hard to get a jury for and the appeals attorney is asking for a new trial due to juror misconduct, unreliable sniffer dog evidence, and issues with dismissed jurors. Scott is NOT getting a new trial due to new evidence, poor legal representation, or corruption within the police department or DAs office.
Misconceptions
There are two major misconceptions I have seen mentioned online and I wanted to correct them here before the end of this piece. The first misconception that was spread by the media was that the Petersons’ house smelled like bleach when patrol officers first arrived. This was not true; patrol officers never reported this. The second misconception is that Diane Jackson saw the Medina home being robbed on the 24th. This is not true. Diane saw three men by a van who she thought were landscapers. She only reported this information when she learned of Laci’s disappearance later that day. Diane Jackson never saw the men robbing the house or carrying a safe to the van.

If you want some laughs check out the Scott is Innocent Facebook page. There are a lot of people who think that Laci was abducted for a ritual purpose and that it has something to do with something called Pizza gate and Hollywood elites who cruise around northern CA abducting Hispanic looking women and cutting out their babies. (No, I am not kidding.)

Conclusion
After researching, reading, and exploring this case I think it is safe to say that Scott Peterson is guilty of his wife’s murder and that the doubt in this is case is not reasonable doubt at all. With that being said I do not think the media allowed for Scott to get an unbiased jury and I do think the hate spewed towards Scott’s family by the public was cruel and inappropriate, like the one bystander outside the court house who yelled at Jackie “I hope they fry your son!” However, I think if Scott gets a new trial, which he deserves, the outcome will likely be the same. What do you think, is there really doubt in the Laci Peterson case?

2020.07.22 22:53 GhostfacexProdigy HCAC The Next Potential Meme SPAC

HCAC The Next Potential Meme SPAC
HCAC - Hennessy Capital Acquisition Corp. IV
Ellenoff Grossman & Schole LLP – Number one last year Skadden, Arps, Slate, Meagher & Flom LLP – Number five last year Nomura, Stifel – haven’t heard much from them (only one SPAC deal) 300m in trust September 3rd Deadline
Additional Terms:
  1. Crescent Term: $9.20 threshold
  2. Anchor Investor: BlackRock $32.5M
  3. Forward Purchase: Nomura $125M
Key Takeaways:
· Sept 3rd Deadline fast approaching
· 72% institution owned (JP Morgan, BMO, BOA, Deutsche Bank, Goldman, Morgan Stanley)
· 100 percent still in trust
· VERY solid leadership (this is the groups 4th SPAC - their first Bluebird Bus was very successful)
· Blackrock doesn’t fuck around haha
· I would be shocked if they liquidated without announcing a target
· I love the industrial/infrastructure play and expect something “green energy” related - Chargepoint???

“We intend to focus on industries that complement our management team’s background, and to capitalize on the ability of our management team to identify and acquire a business, focusing on industrial, infrastructure solutions and value-added distribution sectors in the United States (which may include a business based in the United States which has operations or opportunities outside of the United States). We will seek to acquire one or more businesses with an aggregate enterprise value of $750 million or greater.”

Management:
Daniel J. Hennessy, our Chairman and Chief Executive Officer since our formation, is also the Managing Member of Hennessy Capital LLC, an alternative investment firm he established in 2013. From September 2013 to February 2015, Mr. Hennessy served as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Hennessy Capital Acquisition Corp., or Hennessy I, which merged with School Bus Holdings Inc. in February 2015 and is now known as Blue Bird Corporation (NASDAQ: BLBD), and since February 2015, has served as its Vice Chairman. From April 2015 to February 2017, Mr. Hennessy served as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Hennessy Capital Acquisition Corp. II, or Hennessy II, which merged with Daseke in February 2017 and is now known as Daseke, Inc. (NASDAQ: DSKE) and since February 2017, has served as its Vice Chairman. Since August 2018, Mr. Hennessy has served as a director of SIRVA Worldwide Relocation & Moving. From January 2017 to October 2018, Mr. Hennessy served as Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of Hennessy III, which merged with NRC Group Holdings, LLC, a global provider of comprehensive environmental, compliance and waste management services, in October 2018 and is now known as NRC Group Holdings Corp. (NYSE American: NRCG) and since October 2018, has served as a director. From 1988 to 2016, Mr. Hennessy served as a Partner at Code Hennessy & Simmons LLC (n/k/a CHS Capital or “CHS”), a middle-market private equity investment firm he co-founded in 1988. Over a 25 year period, CHS invested $2.9 billion in nearly 400 operating companies. Mr. Hennessy has served as Chairman of the Board of Directors of various CHS portfolio companies that manufacture and/or distribute a broad array of products or provide services for the industrial, infrastructure, energy and packaging sectors. In 2009, EDH Properties, LLC, a family real estate investment entity for which Mr. Hennessy was the managing member, filed a petition for voluntary reorganization under Chapter 11 of the U.S. Bankruptcy Code. A plan of reorganization was confirmed by the court in 2010 and the lender received payment in full. Prior to forming CHS, Mr. Hennessy was employed by Citicorp from 1984 to 1988 as head of the Midwest Region for Citicorp Mezzanine Investments and Vice President and Team Leader with Citicorp Leveraged Capital Group. He began his career in 1981 in the oil and gas lending group at Continental Illinois National Bank (now Bank of America) where he was a Banking Officer. Mr. Hennessy holds a B.A. degree, magna cum laude, from Boston College and an M.B.A. from the University of Michigan Ross School of Business.

Notes and Highlights of Kentucky Governor Andy Beshear’s Live Update June 24, 2020
NOTE: There appear to be 2 updates today. One at 11:30am and another at the normal 4pm. (Tweet). I’m posting this early in case there is COVID-specific stuff covered. If it’s just about voting or something non-COVID-related then I doubt I’ll update with anything. This is not a sub to summarize any/all statements from the Governor, it’s for COVID-related stuff (though we will cover non-COVID-related in notes to be complete, stuff like the Breonna TayloMcAtee investigations, if it’s brought up during a regular update).
12:50pm Edit: Well that wasn’t really as COVID-related as we thought it might be at the start so sorry, we did the opposite of what I said we would do but now you have notes for it.
6:30pm Edit: This was a HUGE update for the 4pm update coupled with the large update this morning. The full update will have to be spread over many comments, apologies as I know that’s harder to read/follow.

2020.05.28 00:30 Wanderlust481 Living my personal hell and I keep thinking it’ll just get worse.

The last 14-15 months have been soooo just... blech, and I just need to word vomit. Excessively long rant and train of thought. Trigger warning: suicide
-March 2019 my bf and I took a road trip to visit my family and enjoy some time away from life. My mom told me her youngest brother had been arrested yet again for possession (after many many many good, sober years and forward progress). The whole trip bf complained about not feeling very well, being tired, his ribs were bothering him. I did what I could to comfort, help, and offer suggestions or distractions. We made it through, came back home, and within a week had been to the hospital for sudden chest pain (he refused care when the pain subsided), and urgent care twice for the same problem. He was diagnosed with Generalized Anxiety Disorder with occasional panic attacks and told to establish a primary care and start looking for a therapist that would work with him. Started with a doctor, got on some meds, refused to try therapy. He has only slightly improved over the last year, argues with his doctor regularly (when he’s not refusing to go to regular follow ups), and his sleep schedule has flipped to up all night and asleep all day.
-May 2019 I went for another trip to my hometown for some family pictures. Bf experienced severe separation anxiety and multiple panic attacks while I was away. He chose not to come with me (due to the Mounting anxiety at the thought of being away from his mom).
-June 2019 the doctor suggests a medication change since anxiety may not be the primary concern, bf refuses to accept a prescription for antipsychotics. Still won’t see a therapist. Doctor refused Xanax refills, increasing severity and frequency of panic attacks. Potentially harmful comments start coming up, and I ended up calling out sick to work after an all-nighter keeping him company and removing anything that he could hurt himself with. I am supposed to go back to my hometown yet again at the end of the month (gma’s 80th bday/60th anniversary party), but his mom went out of town and he wouldn’t come with me, so I decided to stay and make sure someone was available for him.
-July 2019 I go back home (alone again, bf still chose not to come along) for the weekend after the 4th. The evening I got into town (5th) my mom tells my brother and I that our uncle failed multiple random UIs and spent the night in jail, his fiancée is about ready to give up, and that there was some concern about his safety if she left him. The next morning (6th), we went to my paternal grandparents’ home to take care of a few chores around the house and yard. 30 minutes in, my maternal grandma called and I had to watch my mom’s heart break as we got the news that her baby brother ended his life. The rest of the day was like a hurricane. We got to my mom’s childhood home after the sheriff and EMTs, but before the funeral director. I guess I’m somewhat thankful for that. I have images that will haunt me forever, but I do feel I was able to say a proper goodbye while I comforted my mom as she and her two other brothers cried around his body. I called my bf to deliver the news when the funeral director arrived, and finally took a moment to let realization sink in. I drove the 4 hours back home on the 7th, in distress, alone, and quiet. Tried to go to work on Monday the 8th, but couldn’t keep a handle my emotions. I went to a Catholic grief counselor instead to come to terms with the way my faith views death by suicide. When the funeral was set, I talked to my bf about going. I needed the support during that 4 hour drive. I didn’t expect him to attend the service itself, but I needed to not be alone with my thoughts for such a long time. But the 12th came and he said he couldn’t handle the thought of seeing my parents in mourning. So I drove alone. There, the funeral, and back.
-The rest of summer 2019 went fairly smooth. I kept distracted at work, the doctors I work for were very understanding when I requested that I not work with patients who shared the first name of my late uncle for a little while. My relationship started to feel more stable as my bf was put on a blood pressure medication, and we kind of just rode the waves of life and emotion. I did go back to see my family in late August as we had scheduled family pictures with my maternal side. I’m grateful for them. They turned out beautiful, and we had included my late uncle with a large framed photo. It was the first time everyone had been together since the funeral. And we all got to share some tears and hugs and laughter. But I haven’t gotten to see any of them since.
-Fall and winter 2019/early 2020 got rough again, my bf being a California native and living in a much colder area, he does fall prey to SAD. I spent most of my time (when I wasn’t at work) either cross-stitching and crocheting or watching TV and cuddling so that he was ok.
-March 2020 my bf’s mom told us early in the month that her husband is applying for other work opportunities and the possibility of them moving if he got an offer is pretty high. (We do live with them because of my bfs anxiety and Hispanic-leaning upbringing) Oh yay, global pandemic! I got furloughed from work at the end of March. I noticed my self-esteem dragging a little from not feeling a sense of purpose while I’m not working.
-April 2020 I took up knitting! Future in-laws tell us that an offer was accepted and they are moving back to Southern California. We are included in that if we want to go. I don’t, I’ve never lived in any other state, and I’m only 4 hours away from my family. But we discuss it and agree that it will be a good adventure and give me a chance to experience a different side of life. I don’t feel right taking away his chance to move back home to where he was happy, and his mom is the only family he has left. I told my parents we were planning on moving away and they were both upset (still are). My mom mentions that she would hate to see us break up, but she’s prefer it if that meant I stayed here. My dad was kind enough to speak up and remind her that my bf and I have every intention of spending the rest of our lives together. And I remind my mom that just because I’ll be a few extra states away, it isn’t necessarily a permanent move. It was a tense conversation. Since I’m still furloughed, we have lots of time to pack things up and get the house ready to list. The majority of my belongings find their way to the storage unit, and I can’t get my bf to focus on packing his own things. Bf tells me that he wishes he had a ring for me so that we could move as an engaged couple. We talk about how we feel about the future, and my sweet commitment-phobe says he’s feeling ready to forgive the past. (Backstory: I was unfaithful early on but let it go on an unfortunately long time, he found out, and we have both worked really hard to resolve the conflicts that led me to that in the first place. Things have been really good overall, and we have reached the point where we can talk about the future without my infidelity being the first thing that’s brought up.) over the next few days, he kept telling me so many sweet things and reassuring me about this scary leap of faith. I helped him through another panic attack one night, and he told me the next day that the past doesn’t even matter. He said “i think of you as my air. I wouldn’t still be alive if you weren’t here.” It wasn’t the first time he hinted at that, but this time I could tell he means it. Bf’s sleep schedule starts to become erratic, as does mine since I still don’t have to go to work. We started bickering over lots of stupid stuff. But there’s a lot going on, so communication is our main priority. I finally told my office that I will be moving at some point in the near future. Luckily, this new company is allowing the future step-in-law up to a year to get everything situated, given the state of the world. My work knows this and is happy that I still intend on returning to work after furlough ends, even if for a short period. Everything in my life now feels strained and tense and sucky. And then I found a glass pipe on the bathroom counter. Immediately confronted my bf, and now the events over the year start adding up and making sense. His anxiety was not random, it was self-inflicted. His harmful thoughts and reckless behavior now have an explanation. And now I understand his guilt and not wanting to see my family hurt by an addiction-related suicide. I considered leaving then and there, but for some reason couldn’t make myself, not with his comments playing on repeat in my mind.
-May 2020.... bfs using has slowed down and he is more open with me about where he is going, what he’s doing, and why. We spend even more time together, still trying to pack and be prepared, and he starts working with me instead of against me on packing. Some serious progress has been made by the middle of the month, but he suddenly starts acting a little differently. I’m apparently blind to certain behaviors (like addiction), and have always been a very trusting person. I don’t read his messages over his shoulder, I’ve never thought about going through his phone, nothing. But after the discovery in April, I had this new little voice. Then we had a moment where I had gotten up to pee while he was on his phone, and he turned it away and said “sorry, I just don’t wanna drag you into this. Just... it’s a private conversation.” Didn’t think anything of it, really. In the moment, I assumed it was his dealer or someone like that. Went back to bed and enjoyed some wonderful sleep. Next morning, the new little voice tickled my brain. So I took his phone and opened his messages while he was asleep. I think part of me wanted to be able to rat people out so he didn’t have anywhere to get his fix, but what i actually found was a chain of dirty texts, images, and videos. Cue absolute meltdown because my whole life is falling apart when it should be coming together. He woke up to my hysterical crying on the floor. Discussions, arguments, and storm-outs have all happened over the last week. He refused to let me actually read the conversation after the fact and changed his passcode, saying that I don’t need to know everything because it’ll only hurt me more and that I need to figure out how to get over not knowing because “she’s a stranger from the internet and I was saying whatever I had to in order to get off, but at least I didn’t actually go f**k someone else.” And that’s pretty much where I’m at right now. I still don’t have a return-to-work date. I can’t visit my family because I won’t qualify for my unemployment if I do. Most of my things sit in a storage unit to which I don’t know the passcode, waiting to be moved to sunny California. Bf has been very attentive, but to the point where I haven’t even been allowed time to knit because every time I try, he lays across my lap and wants to cuddle and watch a show. He gets frustrated when I stay up too late, but also if I wake up at a decent time. I have no one to talk to, mostly because I know it wouldn’t be fair to omit my own infidelity and I’m still so ashamed of that. I break down every time I try to pack anything else. I’ve talked to him a lot about how I don’t think I can move anymore, and he’s gone back to holding my past actions over my head. He thinks that if he can sleep in the same bed as me night after night, knowing what I had done, then how dare I even consider throwing away 4.5 years over a few meaningless messages. And knowing everything I know now, I still can’t find a way to justify actually walking away. I’ve noticed my self-talk has fallen extremely negative. And in my head I have recognized the destructive thought patterns. I can logically filter through it and say that it’s not the way I actually think or feel. I’ve expressed them in writing just to get them out, but I have suddenly developed an unreasonable amount of self-hate and the uncontrollable need to continually put myself down. I feel like I’ve lost my sense of self and I’m just scared of everything now. Am I staying because I believe he’d make me live through another traumatic loss? Am I staying because of how much I love him? Or am I staying because of how much I hate me?
If you read all of it, thank you for taking the time, and I’m sorry for rambling through most of it.

2019.12.21 16:56 Boobinabox Money Diary: A central NJ married 22 year old personal assistant making $21,000 yearly

Facts: 22 married does not combine finances with husband (23). I work 10 months of the year.
Disclaimer: This diary involves grief, mental health, and coping. If this is possibly triggering to you, please don't read. I don't want anyone to feel distressed over reading this.
Section One: Assets and Debt
Retirement Balance $129,000 approx This was inherited after my mother's recent passing. She had inherited it from my grandfather who was a very wise man financially and in life. He taught me all my morals and principles regarding money. I miss them both every day. I believe it's an IRA annuity. I had to set it up with my mom's financial advisor (now mine) to transfer to my name and base off of my age vs hers. It will never lose value, but the bank will always take the first 2% of any gains that year. So if it gains 5%, I'll only make 3%. But if the market loses 7%, I lose nothing.
Savings Account Balance $3,000 approx It's (2% interest) in a personal savings account for emergencies. I have an MMA savings account with about $135,000 (1.49% interest) from life insurance and inheritance I opened with a local bank my mom and I both used.
Checking Account Balance $1000 I should have around that in my checking with the same bank where the MMA is. I keep money in there for bills, shopping, etc. I feel uncomfortable if I don't have much in there.
Credit Cards $0 I have 2 credit cards with excellent credit. I always pay off in full each month, but put a majority of my purchases on them to get rewards points. I have a couple bills set to autopay so even if I don't make any purchases that month, I still earn something.
Student Loan Debt $0 I paid for my associates degree in a creative field (rather not specify so I don't doxx myself) with a combination of a small scholarship, attending community college vs big university, and an inheritance from my grandparents passing. The inheritance just covered the degree plus a few rent payments when I wasn't working due to illness.
Etc. There is an estate account for my mother which I am the operator of. It has around $10,000 in it. I will be closing this after tax season has passed and transfering to the MMA account.
Section Two: Income
Main Job Monthly Take Home: $2000 I'm a w2 worker, but since I work in a private home, I don't receive traditional pay stubs each pay period. My boss writes me a weekly check with my flat rate and she handles the taxes. My insurance is $0 since I make under the state recommended amount. It does come with its downsides at times (see below in diary), but beggars can't be choosers.
Side Gig Monthly Take Home: $0 I'm working on setting up a creative arts (won't specify which industry) business with a team. We have connections, equipment, and talent. We've been working on it for months and months now finishing our showcase to present to investors/clients. It's promising and hopefully I can make this my full time come next summer.
Section Three: Expenses
Rent: $220 (husband J pays $140) This includes my portion of the internet bill. We live in my MIL's house with my best friend D, her mother, friend K, and MIL. It feels a bit cramped at times and I wish we had more privacy, but it's ok for now. D, her mom, & K were coming from less than desirable living situations, so they moved in to not be drowning in debt or emotionally distressed. Everyone pays their part.
Cellphone: $37.32 Virgin Mobile unlimited talk/text/ 3G data per month. It works for me.
Car Insurance: $189 My 2 vehicles, 2014 car and 2011 truck (inherited after mom's passing, was grandpa's). Both paid off. Can't wait til I'm 25 and the rate is lower. Auto pays to credit card.
AMC Alist: $25.54 I can see 3 movies a week anytime, anywhere, any type (dolby, imax, etc). Worth it for me. Auto pays to credit card.
Netflix: $0 (J pays)
Amazon Prime: $0 (J pays)
Cable: $0 (MIL pays)
Disney+: $0 ( I prepaid upfront $70 for one year)
Storage Unit: $178.48 A new bill necessary after my mom's passing. There isn't enough room for everything where we live so I had to get a unit. This is the online special price with insurance, taxes, etc. Auto pays to credit card.
Donations: ? I don't have a set amount I contribute monthly/annually but I frequently round up purchases to donate when available. I do volunteer when I have time & attend charity events occasionally.
Savings: I don't have a set reoccurring amount at the moment, but my goal this month is $550
Cat Expenses: Kitty vet bills aren't frequent as she's very healthy. We pay for her vet bills when they occur. J and I take turns paying for her hair ball supplements, litter, food, etc.
12/11 • 5:40am Good morning, well not really. I barely slept as I was kept awake by my own intrusive thoughts. I have an overwhelming sense of loneliness as my husband J is at work (overnight worker) until 8am because of the busy holiday season. This is my normal wake up time for work since I have a split shift. It's common in private family homes. I go to the bathroom, brush my hair, get dressed, and I'm out the door.
• 6am I see the forecast was correct as I'm greeted with snow falling from the sky and my car covered in an annoying layer. I quickly dust off my car & heat it up.
• 6:30am At work, extremely tired. I help the kid get ready for school & keep him on schedule. I drink an entire 20 oz bottle of water.
• 7:45 Drop him off at school and begin my journey home.
• 8am Traffic was reasonable considering its snowing and weekday work bustle. I make it home and I'm greeted by my kitty at the door. She does some belly rolls and chirps while I give her pets. I take my birth control and allergy pills while hopping back into bed. Kitty cuddles up with me.
• 9:30am J woke me up with McDonalds hashbrowns, mcmuffins, & orange juice in hand. Breakfast in bed is awesome. We catch up about our day so far and then pass out.
• 12:30pm Time to wake up. I still look really tired so I wash my face with my cleanser, put on some zit cream (oily skin), and my under eye masks. I get them at walmart for pretty cheap and I'm not sure if they always work, but they make me feel more confident. If anyone has eye cream solutions for dark circles, I'm all ears. I feed the meower while I relax with my eye masks.
• 1:20pm Leaving the house for my gynecologist appointment. I go to planned parenthood as it's the only one my insurance accepts. I go to the location in my town that doesn't have picketers harassing patients, but the entrance requires you to be buzzed in. It makes me sad people can't mind their own business about another person's health. I'm extremely nervous because of the circumstances surrounding this appointment. Second water bottle of the day down.
• 2pm They won't see me today as my insurance refuses to cover it until next week. I reschedule my appointment for next Thursday and leave upset. I feel like calling my mom, but remember that she's gone and feel very alone. I missed my period last week and think I might be pregnant on top of needing a pap test for the first time.
• 2:20pm At home and telling J about the insurance issue. He is calm and collected about it. I simmer down as we share a piece of godiva chocolate from the advent calendar. He falls back asleep while I clean the poop palace (litter box). I play Mario Tennis Aces on the switch.
• 4:30pm A couple of Ritz whole wheat crackers and heading to work and stopping for gas on the way at my usual gas station. $20
• 6:30pm Home for the day. I grab a small piece of pumpkin pie to tide me over.
• 8pm Eating a bowl of rice, beans, salad, and a piece of fish with a diet orange soda enjoying J's company. I don't finish mine and save the leftovers. Kitty gets dinner.
• 9pm My best friend D and friend K (who are also our housemates) need stuff from Walmart so I tag along. I confess my period woes and we get a pregnancy test. D buys the test and some gum for J while I awkwardly ask the Subway worker for an empty cup. I take it in the bathroom and feel that this is the pinnacle of my life.
• 9:45pm It was negative. I know you're supposed to use your first morning bathroom trip though and I've been peeing throughout the day. Not super confident about the result, but it eases my mind a little bit. I'll ask them to test me at planned parenthood next week. I love D for being the ultimate confidante.
• 10pm D stops to get takeout pizza because she's starving, I eat a slice. So does K and J when we get home. I give kitty some crust.
• 11pm I suck on a cough drop as my throat is kind of sore. I use my oil free cleansing face wipe, salicylic acid face wipe, set out clothes for the morning, and contemplate the day before attempting sleep.
• Daily Total: $20
12/12 • 5:40am Another morning, another day I question why I wake up before the sun. J is laying next to me. I drink a whole bottle of water.
• 7:30am Boss lets me out early. I call J and ask if he wants a breakfast sandwich from our local breakfast spot. It's a special treat since they're only open til 1pm and we don't often have time to stop by. I like supporting small businesses when possible and their sandwiches are massive. I get a pork roll, egg and cheese whole grain bagel sandwich for me and a sausage, bacon, pork roll, egg and cheese whole grain bagel sandwich for him. $12.26
• 8:00am I'm home and we eat our sandwiches. J thanks me for the food. I update my kakeibo before going back to sleep. I read about it on R29 and it's basically a finance log of incoming and outgoing money, monthly bills, account balances, etc. The idea that you physically write it out is supposed to help with making time each day to be more aware of your financial health. I love a good reason to use my plethora of pretty mini notebooks and aggretsuko stickers.
• 12:30pm Alive I am! I unlock my phone to see my baby Yoda background. Mandalorian is such a great show, can't wait to see Episode 9 (we reserved our tickets weeks ago with AMC Alist). I give sustenance to the feline.
• 2pm Shower. Sometimes I feel like the backbone of the bar soap industry for demographics under 35 as no one else I know uses bar soap. I just prefer it over body wash. I follow my gates of hell worthy shower with 15 minutes of yoga. I've been practicing for years now and it helps keep my mood and fitness levels up. Second bottle of water down.
• 4:30pm J and I watch Jack Whitehall's Christmas Special on Netflix. The only good parts feature Queer Eye. I have a couple peanut butter crackers with more water. I ask J with help on a couple challenging words on Wordscapes.
• 7:30pm Home from work. We make half a bag of birds eye garlic shrimp pasta for dinner. I feed the meower after washing the dishes and have 2 kiwis.
• 11pm I do my nightly routine and sleep while J heads to work. • Daily Total: $12.26
12/13 • 5:40am Happy Friday the 13th! Fun fact, I was engaged on Friday the 13th in April last year. Anyways, normal morning routine and boss gives me the afternoon off.
• 9am J gives me a kiss that makes me feel giddy while I wash the dishes. We ate cereal, which is our standard breakfast.
• 10am We're at our very first estate sale! I found one in a neighboring town online a few days ago that had tons of video games, collectibles, consoles, comics, etc which is right up our alley.
• 11:30am Satisfied with our treasure hunt we each walk out with an armful. I get a couple Spawn games I was searching for, a mint condition PS1 (my earliest childhood memories involved a PS1), a wii game, and a sealed walking dead board game. In comparison to online or traditional store pricing, it was all a steal. J gets more than me including a stack of games and a couple consoles using his own money. $46
• 12:30pm We head to the laundromat to wash our clothes, sheets, and comforter. Our washer at home is on the fritz and we won't be repairing it anytime soon. I give J a few bucks for the machines and he pays the rest on a preloaded laundry card. We kill time by each getting a baked potato with light sour cream from Wendy's and split a 4 piece spicy chicken nugget. $4
• 1:30pm Laundry done and we're home. Our comforter isn't dry enough so we put it in our dryer for a cycle. J regrets not getting a couple more consoles from the sale, so I call and ask if they still have them. Yes, yes they do. Guess who is driving back down there?
• 2:30pm We grabbed the consoles and leave to head to my bank. I deposit my paycheck into my regular account and a check for my mom into the estate account. It feels real now, but I don't want it to. I start to get a headache.
• 4:30pm We're waiting at the storage unit for a delivery for 2 hours now. The driver finally calls and says he'll be there in 5 minutes. It's a brand new washer & dryer I bought during a black friday sale for a very good deal. You may be wondering why I'm not having it installed in our home. I'm trying to close a deal on a manufactured home + land currently and do not want to place it in our home now (down a rickety flight of stairs in the basement) only to have to take it back out within a few months. I sign for the delivery and we head home.
• 5:30pm I cook some asparagus on the stove when J's dad calls asking what we want for dinner. His dad is a generous soul who doesn't believe in us refusing food/assistance (J comes from a hispanic family), so every Friday he brings us food from somewhere. Today it's Wendy's, and I get a grilled chicken caesar salad while J gets fries and a crispy chicken sandwich. We eat the asparagus first and wash the dishes after we're done.
• 8pm At some point we both passed out. Guess I needed the nap. J is still sleeping while I search for new cookie recipes, play wordscapes, and play Mario Tennis Aces on switch. I've become a pretty avid baker and every holiday season I make a cookie tray for each meaningful person in my life. I'm trying to feel normal and go ahead with it, even though this is my first Christmas without my mom. My heart aches as I write this.
• 10:30pm My stomach feels kinda off so I make green tea with honey and eat half a fun size reese's pb cup. I bring J a piece of wheat bread with peanut butter as requested. Kitty has settled on the bed content with life.
• 12am Kitty has a flea. We give her topical flea medication we have on hand.
• Daily Total: $50 12/14 • 3am Kitty throws up, probably from licking the topical treatment. I clean it up and go back to sleep.
• 11:30am I'm awake. I look online and find a flea medication at petsmart that is in pill form. J & I head out to get it and we pick up pill pockets while there to make it more appetizing for her. J pays as he owes me some money and he makes a $2 donation for homeless pets.
• 2pm Home with a custom acai bowl for me from Frutta Bowls we picked up on the way home. It's one of my favorite things, but they can be a bit pricey. J doesn't really like them and he pays. Kitty takes her medicine.
• 4pm J leaves to spend some time with his dad at the gym and shop with him. This is a weekly occurence which nets me alone time. I watch some YouTube videos from Kittisaurus, TimTracker, and Themissalliecakes. I highly recommend those channels for wholesome, cute entertainment.
• 6:30pm I pause Resident Evil 2 (my first playthrough) and begin making broccoli mac and cheese in the kitchen. Roommate K walks in and we chat for a little bit about her workday. She goes to her room while I wrap up the leftovers and wash dishes.
• 9:30pm I continue playing RE2 until J comes home. I only had 3 jumpscares so I consider that a win. J is very tired and I help put away the groceries.
• 11:30pm I make myself a drink with mtn dew ice and Jose cuervo tequila. It's super smooth and definitely worth a try if you're a tequila fan. I watch all the office Christmas episodes while eating some cookies and have another drink before passing out in the early morning hours.
• Daily Total: $0 12/15 • 10:30am I'm awake and respond to some texts from my creative business colleagues. We have a date for our debut and I eagerly await the day. I set up a meeting for later in the week to discuss more.
• 12:30pm We feed kitty, brush her, and give her the flea meds. J and I watch the new Mandalorian episode on Disney+ and notice Bill Burr is in it. I mention that I'm still waiting for F is for Family season 4 to come on Netflix. It's really an underrated show, much like Tuca and Bertie (gone too soon).
• 1pm J makes himself some eggs and hotdogs on the stove while I eat some cereal. I text with a good friend and we decide to go to lunch tomorrow at an Asian restaurant. I'm happy since I haven't seen him since our wedding and that was 8 months ago. Life gets hectic when friends have different schedules.
• 2pm We drive over to Kmart to see if they have any good items left. Today is the store's final day, but nothing good remains. J wants pretzels from Philly Pretzel Factory so we get some rivets and dips. He pays.
• 7pm I've been playing Resident Evil 2 most of the day after taking a shower while J helps me. He watches some videos and plays phone games as well. We eat some of the pretzels.
• 7:30pm Time for dinner. We cook broccoli, asparagus, last night's mac and cheese, and chicken soup to use up ingredients in our stuffed fridge.
• 11:30pm Nightly routine, 15 minutes of yoga, and sleep.
• Daily Total: $0 12/16 • 5:40am The sky's not awake, but I am. Morning routine as usual, return home, and sleep some more. I think about the claymation Christmas specials I used to watch with my mom and feel nostalgic and pained.
• 12:30pm J & I meet our good friend B at the asian restaurant. I've known B since middle school and he's like a brother to me. Dude is taller than a baby giraffe at birth so I look tiny, even at my 5 ft 7 stature. He gives me a hug and we feast. Sushi, shrimp, lo mein, green tea ice cream, scallion pancakes, gyoza, shumai, and more. It's all very delicious and we have a great time chatting. J pays to settle up the money he owed me.
• 2:30pm Chilling at home until work and watching some Youtube. I rest my head on J's shoulder, my favorite spot. I confirm with D that she's available tomorrow afternoon and reserve tickets for a movie. My ticket is covered under Alist and I use a reward to get her ticket for cheap. $1.07
• 7:30pm Home from work and letting my friends know the date of my creative business debut next month. I'd like as many to attend as possible to try and fill the aching gap of my mother, father, and grandparents (maternal) being unable to see my culminating moment career wise. I plan to visit their resting place again next week to bring more fresh flowers and chat. I eat some cereal since I'm not super hungry after lunch earlier, but don't want to wake up in the middle of the night starving.
• 11:30pm Nightly routine and time for rest.
• Daily Total: $1.07 12/17 • 5:40am My slumber is interrupted by my work alarm and I sigh. Only two mornings I tell myself. It's a dreary, rainy day. Morning routine and work completed, I pass out.
• 11:45am I wake up after some odd dreams and eat some cereal with J. He's pretty groggy. I feed kitty before leaving the house. I drive myself and D to the Mr. Rogers movie since she really wants to see it and I think it looks wholesome.
• 3pm The movie was indeed wholesome. We both enjoyed it very much. I drink a diet orange soda at home while watching Rick & Morty with J and snacking on pretzels.
• 7pm After getting home from work, I take a shower and think about how in a weird sense I've become Batman. My family is gone and I've been left with only questions, a strong moral compass, and money (not Bruce Wayne money). Life hasn't always been kind to my family and I feel isolated because no one can exactly relate to what we've gone through. I pray this was the hardest decade of my life and that easier times will be ahead.
• 8pm We eat some salad, rice, and half a can of tuna with a chicken leg each. We eat healthy most of the time although our diet would look very odd to others. Fun fact about me, my cat is named after a Roman goddess. Comment down below with your guess.
• 11pm Sleep for a long but fun day tomorrow after nightly routine and 50 squats.
• Daily Total: $0 12/18 • 5:40am Another morning routine comes another day of unnerving traffic. Christmas is a week away which brings out the dumb in people I notice...or at least when it comes to driving.
• 10:30am Wake up time! We're taking K, her friend (who I've never met before), and our good friend I to Philly for the Christmas village in Love Park in my (my mom's) truck. It should be about a 45 minute drive so we head out to pick up I and get on the road.
• 12:30pm We made it to the parking lot. I prepaid this morning (cheaper to reserve in advance and I found a coupon code), K will split it with me later. Spoiler alert, she doesn't pay me for her portion, but I let it go.$16.60
• 1pm We instantly inspect all the cute wooden huts for food since me and J are starving after not eating this morning. We begin with a smoked bratwurst each on a roll and split and diet coke. J pays.
• 1:30pm Next is spaetzle (german version of mac and cheese is the best way for me to describe it) and goulash, both are delicious. I pay for the spaetzle, J pays for the goulash. ($9) My hands are freezing so I buy a pair of warm gloves for me ($10.80) and a scarf ($15) for J since his neck is cold. We chat with a vendor about how touchscreen gloves are useless $34.80
• 1:30pm Our friend I comments on how sweet we are together and gives us a bear hug. I is a very out gay man and I love him so much for never being afraid to be himself. I just wish he would take better care of his health; we offer to buy him food (he's unemployed) but he refuses. Me and J want some strudels so we get an apple one and a lemon pepper chicken one. He pays, and I like the sweet one much better.
• 2pm I decide it's time to try glühwein, which is hot flavored wine in a special mug for the festival. I purchase the souvenir mug with apple glühwein ($10) and really enjoy it. J finds it gross, I takes a sip and thinks it's ok. We regroup with K and her friend inside the heated german ornament shop tent. I feel the wine a bit since I haven't eaten enough and go a bit ham with the ornaments. I purchase 2 lace, 1 wooden, and 2 glass ornaments. ($52.40) We exit the tent and it's lightly snowing. $62.40
• 2:15pm We meet a precious Samoyed named Levi who does an Awoooo to the onlookers. He's friendly and I get to pet him. 10/10 best boy ever, will steal your girl. J gets fries that we split and a hot chocolate for himself. He pays.
• 3pm K and her friend get some glühwein and I get a refill, leaving a tip too. ( $8 with $1 tip) We head across the street to look at the other festival shops. I see some really cool coffee stain animal illustration artwork, but I'm not ready to purchase it just yet. I take the owner's business card so I can make a future purchase. $8
• 3:30pm I buy a potato pancake with sour cream, cinnamon, and applesauce before we leave. We split it and walk back to the truck. $5
• 4:15pm On the way home we stop at Krispy Kreme. There are no locations near us that aren't out of the way, so we decide it's worth it. I buy a dozen donuts of different varieties. $11.49
• 5:20pm We drop I off and have arrived back home. I search for the artist's business card and can't find it! I'm very annoyed and contact the festivals Facebook page with a brief description of the vendor and their location with the hopes they can give me the name. I chat with D about her work day.
• 7:30pm My baking is complete. I tried out a new recipe tonight of crispy kit kat blondies. I give one to K, J, and B along with her mom. I put the rest in the fridge and will bring some tomorrow to my creative business meeting. I drink a diet orange soda and look at the Christmas cards my aunt (mom's best friend) and my 2nd cousins sent. My aunt also sent a container of her homemade cookies with many varieties inside. I hope she likes the gift I sent her (a fleece throw blanket with cats all over it).
• 8pm I wanted to mention here that K's friend did not speak to anybody but K all day. I find it extremely rude since she hitched a ride with us and spent part of the day with us. No thank you, no greeting, nothing. I wonder if I'm overreacting, but it just feels impolite to not speak at all to others in the group.
• 9:30pm I watch some YouTube videos, browse reddit, and write the final money diary entry. I think about what a jam-packed week this has been and how there's much more in store. I wonder how tomorrow's appointment at Planned Parenthood will go.
• 11:30pm Nightly routine and 50 squats later, I need to go to sleep.
• Daily Total: $138.30
Food + Drink $55.75 Fun / Entertainment $1.07 Home + Health $0 Clothes + Beauty $25.80 Transport $36.60 Other $102.40
Weekly Total: $221.63
Reflections I'd like to start off by saying I normally don't socialize or go out this much in a week. So if you're an introvert thinking, "mmmm can't relate.", I feel you. Typically, I stay home and watch a streaming service or play a game. I really pushed myself this week to be social and have fun with my friends to combat the emptiness I'm feeling regarding this holiday season and the loss of my mom. Is it healthy? I'm not sure really, but it's better than me partaking in more self destructive behaviors I suppose.
I'd consider myself more of a frugal spender than a reckless purchaser. I knew in advance I'd be dropping some cash at the festival in Philly, so it wasn't too big of a shock to me. I usually fluctuate between extremes of no spending or high spending, typically because of stocking up on items I need or attending a special event. I value experiences and food more than material goods a majority of the time, which is standard for me and represented well in this diary.
My grief has taken a toll on me physically, emotionally, mentally, and financially. There are a lot of things people don't let you know will happen when a parent passes away while you're young and still setting up your life, so to speak. I was completely caught unaware and bombarded which, at first, affected my ability to care about anything really. I let money (my personal earned, not inheritance) fly willy nilly a bit as I grappled with her loss and the side effects money has on the cold hearts around you. I no longer speak to my stepdad, because he threatened to harm me, my husband, and set fire to the joint home of my mom and him.
As a result, I went in auto mode moving everything of hers out of there and into a storage unit. I didn't blink at the cost, I didn't blink when people looked down upon me in pity, nothing mattered anymore. All I could feel was intense pain emotionally and physically. I had a large tumor last year that incapacitated me and thought I wouldn't be here today. But here I am with money I didn't ask for, alone. I know to some, that might make me sound ungrateful, but I'd pay all that money if they could bring her back.
I thank you all for reading my diary and hope you have enjoyed it. If you'd like a future update regarding my career endeavors or how I'm handling grief, please comment below. I'd like to see how many would be interested. Have a great holiday season.

If GTA VI – If set in 80s Vice City – a hypothesis
So no announcement or any solid leaks have yet to surface for GTA VI. The only thing we can do is dream and predict. Like many GTA Vice city fans. I’m hoping we’re going back to Vice City set in the 80s. The following is a Prediction for a what GTA VI will be like assuming it’s set in the 80s. This is entirely based of facts. Facts that exist in the GTA Universe and the real world. Hopefully the outcome is pretty accurate predication of what you will be seeing in GTA VI.
Vice City – Miami 1980s During the 1980s America went through a period for what is now known as the Crack epidemic. The Time magazine in 1981 reported that 70% of marijuana and cocaine in the United States passed through Miami first. The City of Miami had around 300 murders every year during the 80s. That’s an excessive amount especially for a city that had a population less than 500,000.
To put this into perspective I’m from London, UK a city of more than 8 Million people that’s x16 in population and it has about 140 murders a year.
So If London actually had murders at the rate Miami did in the 80s it’s homicide rate a year would average at 4800. That’s a long way off. So you can see how GTA Vice City in the 80s would be a very realistic setting for a GTA. Making it perfect for drug fuelled gang wars and a practical feeling that the city almost feels lawless. A stretched and corrupt VCPD would exist so maybe this would allow you to bribe some officers, detectives, FIB to turn away as you smuggle drugs and guns .
Characters
Lazlow Jones
Lazlow can be heard on the radio in GTA Vice City and Vice City stories so he would be more than likely again be a radio host for V-Rock. The 80s was Lazlow’s prime a big contrast from when you see him in GTA V.
Fernando Martinez
He is another radio host able to jump dimensions He has been in Vice City and GTA V. He will return for VI regardless I’m sure.
Love Fist (All members) - Love fist appear in GTA Vice City and also have presence in the HD Universe. So without a doubt they would also pop up as young celebrity Rockstars
Willy - Appears in GTA V
Jezz Torent- By the time of GTA V he has become a believer of the epsilon program. This is known due to his testimony on their website. Maybe we will see his introduction into the religion in VI. Maybe it’s a side mission.
Cris Fomage(Found of the Epsilon program)Cris apart from his appearance in GTA V is the leader of Epsilon can be heard on the Radio of GTA San Andreas so we know his cult has in it’s current form has been around since the early 90s not really a stretch to put them in the early 80s. Possibly seeing some similarities between the Jonestown cult with their own town.
Jack Cranley
He makes appearances in both VC stories and GTA V. So we know he has already been placed in 80s Vice City. So he might make a return in his younger years as a slightly troubled stuntman.
Jack Howitzer
He has been in Vice City , GTA IV and GTA V. He is an Vinewood action hero that’s made some of the biggest action films of the 80s. He would without a doubt make an appearance probably enjoying drugs and sex on a Yact just off the shore of Vice City beach
Possible Characters
Francis Sinclair - Yes he is a minor character From Red Dead redemption 2 but he has the birth mark on his face that according to the Epsilon program makes him a decedent of Kraf the God they worship. He is also able to Time travel. I wouldn’t be shocked if you come across him in a strangers and freaks mission.
Michael De Santa - Michael was born in the mid-late 60s making him 18 or over if Vice City is to be set from 1984 onwards.
Martin Madrazo - He will be over the age of 18
Sammy Bottino
He is wanted for a murder charge in Vice City no reason why this can’t be a cold case murder that occurred in the 80s as he was 18 or over during this time period.
Agent ULP - He will be in his 20s maybe early 30s during the 80s so I it's likely very for him to make a return helping the cartels smuggle drugs into Vice City for the IAA. Maybe he will be the key to going aboard where your character and him take plane to south America to smuggle drugs. Think of the FX show – Snowfall or this scene from American made. In the real world there is strong evidence that the CIA was involved in drug smuggling during the 80s. I’m pretty sure GTA will Satire their involvement.
Locations
Escobar international airport – Unless you’re arriving by boat which is a possibility if you’re illegally immigrating in what was known historically as the Mariel Boatlift the only other way to get to Vice City is landing in Escobar international hopefully we will see the first enterable airport in the HD Universe.
Vice City Transit (Metrorail)****– The Metrorail in Miami has existed since 1984 but actually did not feature in GTA Vice City despite it being set in 1986. Without doubt though I know this time around Rockstar will include it whether it’s set in the 80s or Modern day.
Starfish Island– Featured in Vice City and some residents of the island appear in the HD universe so most likely will return with the possibility of owning some of the large mansions situated on it. Expect another Scarface inspired shootout inside one of them.
North Point Mall- It featured in Vice City and it was enterable. If VI is in the 80s an enterable Mall is a must especially as there is not internet to allow for fast and easy internet shopping.
Possible Locations
These locations are fairly far away from real life Miami but Rockstar don’t mind downsizing and I think the first two could be really interesting to see in GTA
Fun World (Disney World)-Fun world is GTA’s version of Disney World it’s seen on billboards in GTA Vice City and would be amazing if you could actually visit in GTA VI.
President Zane Space Centre (Kennedy Space Centre)–It would be awesome and another unique location to visit. I would imagine would also hold some secrets or form part of the puzzle to a UFO Mystery in GTA VI. – President Zane appears in the TV show Republican Space Rangers and is parody of JFK – another name that could be used would be Democratic Space Centre.
South America/ Caribbean
Now there are rumours that GTA VI may include a South American country. Now this is indeed possible as they have done it before in Red dead redemption and Max Payne.
Max Payne 3– Was mostly based in Brazil. It wasn’t free roam but you did have very detailed maps of the favelas and other Rio locations including even a football stadium. It took some clear inspirations from Man on Fire. No reason why they couldn't do it again but this time as a free roam map or not might just be locked under few missions like North Yankton. One thing is for sure considering GTA V and Red dead 2 another location outside of Vice City will feature in some missions.
Red Dead Redemption– Travelling across the border into Mexico was a big part of the story.
Red Dead redemption 2–This took you to a made up Caribbean island known as Gurma. It’s believed to be just off the coast of Cuba but it’s not Rockstars Version of Cuba. Even though Battle of San Juan Hill takes place on the island in Red Dead which in real life actually took place in Cuba. But this tells us Rockstar don’t mind playing around with historical events to make it fit their adaption.
Which leads me to this possibility -
Invasion of Grenada (1983) America invaded Grenada during the 80s. Now Rockstar may not accurately portray the event but it’s possible that they could just base the invasion on what ever South American/ Caribbean island they use. They could use it to fit their story maybe US Military or IAA using the island to profit off the drug market. I know it’s far fetched. But I like history so I just thought I would put it in. Cuba also played a part in this Military scuffle. If we don't see it I think it might be referenced by the news, radio or just some soldiers at a base in conversation.
Gangs
Angels of Death- They feature in GTA IV and they have a chapter in Vice City. They’ve also existed since the 40s so I’m pretty sure they’ll be making a return in GTA VI.
Possible Gangs
Haitians – Appeared in Vice City but wasn’t present in VC Stories due to a racism controversy. I would like to see a return of a Haitian gang maybe just under a more creative name.
Los Cabrones (Cubans) - Appeared in Vice City and VC Stories so most likely would make a return to VI
South American Cartel - Without a doubt some sort of South American Cartel will be present in Vice City running cocaine through borders and probably will play a major part in Vice City whether 80s or Present day. In fact three cartels have appeared in the 3D GTA era and one in the HD era:A Colombian cartel - features heavily in GTA 3 so it’s possible we could see a return of this gang with a more fleshed out back story.Diaz and Mendez Carte****l – Not sure the likely hood of them being brought back as they’re led and named after key characters from the 3D eraMadrazo Cartel– Of course this cartel features in GTA V but they’re also Mexican so it’s unlikely they would be the dominant cartel in Vice City that’s just not their turf.
Jamaican Posse No evidence but I want to see this as I am half Jamaican so I wouldn’t mind at all if one of our MC’s was Jamaican as well nudge nudge wink wink.
In real life since the 80s there has been presence of Jamaican posses operating in Miami so it would be accurate to include them. They Have always featured when GTA is set in liberty city so there is no reason why they can’t make a return. A lot of the Yardies including Real Badman in GTA IV are actually dressed like Yardies from the 70s/80s.
Italian Mob – I’m pretty sure the Italian Mob would pop up in 80s Vice City. Might not pay a major roll but quite likely to show up in some hotel even if they’re just on ‘vacation’.
Technology
Radio – Business as usual
VHS- Probably be able to buy or rent videos possibly from a Blockbuster parody shop
Arcades Arcades appear in GTA Online so without a doubt Arcades would return to be packed hang out spots. Might also see the return of bowling but this time with annoying pages every 30 minutes.
Virtual reality- Virtual reality has existed since the early 60s. NASA also had VR prototype in the 80s so I wouldn’t be surprised if we see VR making appearance in GTA VI maybe even functional with VR exclusive mini games for PSVR, Hive etc…
Comics– Not a technology but I think they would feature in Rockstars rendition of the 80s and I would be hype to see what they come up for us to read.
Turn decks/ Record players – This is what got the parties going expect to see DJ’s in their golden agein full swing.
Walkman It’s how they listened to Music on the go. Vice City beach will be full of Men and women in swimwear jogging up and down.
Camcorders/ Film Cameras **–**Film just looks better than digital so I can’t wait to have a photo mode that uses the grainy film camera to make the Vice City colours really pop. – think City of God aesthetic.
Fruit Computers Rockstars parody of Apple like they’re relief counterpart they was founded in the 70s so we should see the first Fruit Computers and maybe even their version of the brick phones
Mobile Phones- Yes the 80s had mobile phones they were just big brick phones or in a suit case.
Walkie Talkies– The VC emergency services will use them and so will the Military. I’m sure the player will also use them in their adventure of crime
Possible TV shows/Films/Easter eggs
Vice City P.I (Miami Vice) – Highly likely Miami Vice will be parodied. There is a casino game called Vice P.I in GTA Online with a picture of two Private detectives a White Man and a Hispanic lady this could very likely be the two characters that will feature on the show.
Deluxo “2021 – 2022” (Back to the futureparody)– high possibility. The Deluxo car features in most of the modern GTA games. It’s based off the DeLorean from Back to the Future. It’s likely they would parody the back to the future movies by naming it after the car with the year of release date of the GTA VI.
Gang Burrito (A -team) – High possibility. The Gang Burrito is van that itself is acknowledgment to the A-team as it resembles the van actually used in the show. So again, they would more than likely name the show Gang Burrito.
Gi Joe and Transformers cartoon parody– These are a must. Can you imagine a crude Adult version of Transformers.
Star Wars parody– High possibility. Star Wars saw two films being released in the 80s and has always been larger than life since it dropped in 1977. Rockstar having their own mock version in the Cinema would be hilarious. Probably would go with the simple ‘Space Wars’ name.
The Breakfast Club and Footloose parodies/Easter eggs I’ve never actually watched these films but they’re we both massive in the 80s. So expect some sort of nod to them. Hopefully the Breakfast Club nod might include a Vice City University or educational premises. Maybe just combine both into a show called Detention Dancers.
TV shopping programme and video Workout programmes TV shopping and watching an instructor lead you in high energy dancing aerobics over video was really big in the 80s so expect it to be parodied like so.
Stranger things parody– Medium possibility it’s a modern show but is set in the 80s so I wouldn’t put it past Rockstar to poke some fun at them in some form even if it isn’t a show on TV. Maybe it could be a bold girl running around called 10. It would be a nice easter egg none the less
James Bond parody– Low possibility but they could even use whatever assets they created for Agent before they canned it. Or even the set seen in Vinewood studios possibly actually an asset from Agent.
This took my a couple days to write out by enjoyed it as I love history . Hopefully if you wasn't convinced before that an 80s Vice City would be an interesting setting you now realise why it' would be more interesting and more fitting than a modern day one.
One last thing to show it would be unmatched Miami Skyline in the 80s to help visualise what the map might look like.

2019.10.31 11:08 faeriegirl1995 JNFMIL is trying to help trans SO, being harmful instead.

TW: Transphobia, fatphobia, ableism
Heyo! Long-time reader, first-time poster. This has a bit of backstory so, please accept my apologies in advance.
My SO (22f) and I (23f) have been together for six years. She moved to Texas from California to go to school with me, we've lived together for nearly four years now, and our relationship is honestly wonderful.
Three weeks ago, after over a decade of questioning and pain, she came out to me and the world as a transgender woman. As someone who's been an out-and-proud queer woman for most of my life, this was not an issue. Gayer than previously assumed, and generally delightful. In order, she came out to: Me, her family, my family, the internet, our school. This over the course of three days, and initially everything seemed to be going fine! My FFIL, FBILs, and JNFMIL were all great, my mom (who is 65) was awesome, and life seemed good.
But here come the bad parts. First of all, JNFMIL has always disliked me. SO and I started dating via facebook and met through a case of mild mistaken identity. Very rom-com. When JNFMIL first met me (i went to visit the summer after we started dating) I was... not what she had in mind for a FDIL. I am a short, angry, fat, pagan, generally opinionated person who is openly and vocally queer and critical of the problems of the world around me. She is... kind of exactly what a person pictures when someone says "rich white Californian woman doctor married to a CEO". Suffice to say, she was hoping my SO would end up with someone more like her. She regularly insults me casually, has made comments to SO that she's "come around" on me because I will die of heart failure before I'm 30" and is just so annoyingly intolerant of other people. She works at a public hospital that caters to a mostly hispanic low-income population, is a gynecologist, and has gone on RANTS about how she refuses to hire people with tattoos (because SO mentioned she wanted to get one). She also has accused me of robbing my SO of the opportunity to have children because I don't want kids.
It's worth noting that is because I have a fairly awful family background, and I can't HAVE children. The act of giving birth has a much higher than normal chance of killing me, so I would rather not risk it and instead consider adoption much, much later in life. This is unacceptable.
If you aren't her version of "normal", she doesn't want you.
Flash forward a bit to a week, week and a half ago. JNMIL is the sort of person who thinks that because she went to medical school, she knows about ALL forms of medicine, including general health and transgender medical services. Again, she's a gynecologist. Only a gynecologist, and she mostly performs surgery for births that are going poorly and doesn't do regular rounds with patients.
She has been insisting that SO go to a medical school in Cali for her treatments, tried to bully SO into freezing her sperm (Apparently forgot the aforementioned issue of "no kids") and keeps referring to SO as her son. Still says the right name and she/her pronouns, but specifically said "I can call (school) and tell them my son needs to start estrogin whenever you like..."
SO has a timeline set for her transition, doctors here in Texas she trusts (all hail Planned Parenthood), and wants to basically have the full, slow puberty she feels she didn't get to have. SO has referred to JNFMIL as "The biggest antagonist in my developing life", so thankfully no fog there. I foresee this becoming more difficult before it gets easier, I'm mostly just incredibly frustrated for my girl.
Thank you for reading! I hope I don't have to post too often here. JNFMIL will dictate that...
Edit: Before coming out SO was the GC and oldest of three children, and JNFMIL treated her a lot like the stereotype of an OD- using her for excess emotional support, frequently putting burdens on her one probably shouldn't give a child, etc. So that's some context too.

2019.10.15 15:13 ForwardPlenty Eleventh set of Boundary Stomps

Disclaimer

I guess In need to put this disclaimer in here. I get no posting Karma from this and it is not published anywhere outside of Reddit that I am aware of. I do make links into posts, so often those posts are taken down. Additionally I add short excerpts from posts that may or may not exist any longer.
If I have linked to one of your posts that you don't want to have in these I will be happy to remove it. I usually provide a short excerpt which has little or no identifying information, so if you take down the original post, there isn't really much of a breadcrumb left here, but I will be glad to remove it if you wish, just PM me.

You may be interested in types of boundaries as well
 
 
It is truly amazing that these boundary stomps never end. I am thinking that there an infinite number of ways to boundary stomp.

Googled Guilt Trip

So if you are going to send me a love bomb, please make it original. If you are going to send me a guilt trip, please just tailor it to my specific guilt buttons and control levers, there is no need to send me an internet meme that you try to pass off as original material. If you are going to send me an apology, don't google apologies and then send those to me. If you are such a lizard person that you don't have original thoughts and feelings, maybe that is an issue. If you have to look on line to come up with something suitable, then maybe you should have some level of self-awareness that it is inappropriate to pass off someone else's material to make your point.
Honestly, that hurt worse than the insincere non apologies. To know that my mother doesn't give a shit about me enough to even come up with her own apologies, or her own words, and has to COPY AND PASTE from INTERNET sites to try and get me to do what she wants me to do HURT. I wasn't even worth reading a book, I was a googled apology site and a viral book of faces post. Link
 

Emotional Withholding (Silent Treatment)

In Emotional Withholding a person uses their affection, praise, and presence as a weapon against you. They do this as a way to maintain control, save face, or even just actively hurt you. Simply put, avoidant abuse is someone willingly withdrawing affection with the specific goal to hurt your feelings or control you. It's a form of psychological abuse that's particularly cutting, since humans need love and affection in order to feel happy in a relationship.
In general, when you choose to limit your interactions with a JustNO, it is to eliminate toxicity in your life. When a JustNO decides to limit contact, it is to control and punish.
The inlaws got a hotel room big enough for us to share, we tried to get out of it, we lost. Our baby was having trouble napping in new surroundings so I stayed with them for nap. My inlaws come back with groceries and proceed to slam cabinets whilst putting things away. My husband asks if MIL can close the cabinets quietly since baby is sleeping and she lost her fucking mind. She proceeded to cuss him out, in front of oldest child btw, and then didn't speak to my husband the rest of the trip. I was fucking floored. Had BIL not been graduating the next day, we would have left. I was furious. In an attempt to not make shit more awkward, I just avoided her and kept it together until we left.
This was 4 months ago and we haven't heard from her since. My husband has attempted to call her several times because this is stupid and he's over it. She's holding him hostage emotionally by not answering or returning his calls. He can't have peace because he doesn't know why they're fighting. Our oldest child's birthday was 2 months ago and she didn't even text them. No call. No card. Nothing. FIL called and sent a gift card. I was absolutely beside myself. Oldest child is a teenager and is definitely old enough to have noticed. I cannot describe how much watching them be hurt over this upsets me. Link
 
whenever Geppetto didn’t want us to do something, or she was mad that we didn’t agree with what she said or wanted, or whatever delusional fight she had in her head that none of us knew about - she would shut down completely. Won’t look at you, speak to you, feed you, acknowledge you at all. For days. Weeks even if she was that pissed. But part of this silent treatment was a game - a game that she almost always won with her kids because by then we would have to make some sort of acknowledgement bc we need her for something or our dad told us to make peace with her - and then she’d win the game and she’d be nice to us for a little bit before she had another fit. That is the best way to summarize a manipulation tactic she’s perfected over 20 years. Link
 

The "Innocent" texts

You ask for space. Instead, your JustNO sends you "innocent" texts having to do with routine things like a cable bill or some other nonsense. It is clear what they are doing, yet they want you to fly off the handle so that they can paint you as the bad guy.
This may be part of a campaign of reactive abuse or just an overall JustNO behavior.
I told her the only person destroying our relationship was her and that if she ever mentions cousins name to be again, I will cut her out of my life. I went on to say I'm tired of her victim blaming a sexual assault victim and supporting her abuser, even if it's indirectly. I then said I was done with this drama and would be taking my space. She sent two more texts to say goodnight and that she loved me immediately after that.
The next morning I woke up with a text from her saying the payment for Netflix came through (we share several streaming services - that's the only one she pays for) and the amount. I barely glanced at it, at the time, and didn't respond. I spent the entire day, aside from the moment of annoyance when I woke up, free from the drama - everyone else had respected my request.
 

Emotional Vampirism - Holiday Edition

So some people light up the room when they come in, some light it up when they leave. Many JustNO's really know how to suck all the emotional energy of a holiday from each and every participant.
Example:
we had been looking forward to a winterval of peace, and goodwill to all not-MIL. now we’re going to have to put up with her emotional vampirism all through the season. she’ll attempt to crash Xmas Eve. she’ll want to take kiddo to see ‘Santa’ (father fucking christmas in this house, thank you). she’ll buy a wildly inappropriate amount of entirely unwanted gifts, then complain that we have too much stuff and that she’s running out of money. she’ll compliment whatever veggie food we make to our faces, then do the phone rounds of the few people who still put up with her nonsense to whine about never having a Traditional Christmaaaaaaas. Link
 

Stalking your Social Media

Some JustNOs will love to dig up any kind of dirt about you, especially if they can use it for abuse later on. Whether they comment on your posts, or look at your likes and dislikes to determine how horrible you are, it is invasive, and worthy of being called a boundary stomp. This could be a subset of an overall stalking campaign, or something they just can't help when seeing a post on someone else's page and they just have to see who liked. This may in fact happen a lot, but most people don't file the information away to attack someone later.
MIL sent DH a screenshot of where you can see friends who “like” a page and there was DH and I - y’all she had a come-apart. Going on and on about “how could you support this” “people are talking” “it looks bad that you like this” “what does God think?!”. Link
 

For those who think that things will get better

Sometimes with a lot of work, and having a strong partnership with your SO, you can reach some level of homeostasis with your JustNO where you are not constantly on the brink of an emotional precipice all the time. Sometimes though, even though you think things are okay, it is just because you aren't being faced with the daily insanity. That is until they move in with you or some other event happens that upsets the carefully crafted balance.
It still galls me that after everything she put me and my marriage AND hubs through, after all the manipulations, guilt trips, martyr complex, playing the victim, trash talking, gossiping and all over justNO behavior, she ends up having to live with us and isn't even grateful or appreciative of anything! She's an attention seeking asshole. But here she is, in my home after trying to destroy my life for over 12 years... Link
And what is really going through their minds when they send you notes begging for you to get back in touch and then they post something like this on social media:
"Familys don't set boundarys only people who are trying to do bad things and hide their bad ways from their familys is who set boundarys. I gave birth to 2 kids with the expectitations that those 2 kids will be my kids for life. I didn't give birth to 2 kids to be told what i could and could not do and I refuse to do so. I have rights as a parent and rights as a grand parent and I will be damned if one of my kids try and tell me what I can and cant do. They're gonna learn; I am the mom and what i say goes. They won't be talking about boundarys anymore anytime soon." Link
​  

Vegan

Sometimes when you have strong opinions about things, you feel the need to proselytize those things. Now obviously there are adult things that you don't really discuss with children, like Santa, the Easter Bunny and the Tooth Fairy. There are also things that you don't discuss unless you are their parent, like where babies come from.
Sometimes a JustNO might just want to go overboard and show the little tykes where milk, butter and meat come from. With graphic pictures.
Today, my vegan sister told my kids where meat and dairy products come from, in a very detailed way. They now refuse to eat meat, and want to, "rescue all the poor animals."
 

Ignoring your boundaries: The "I can't remember all your silly rules" defense.

By way of example, you have some simple rules for visiting your child. The child has specific health concerns because of being born prematurely. You ask visitors to remove shoes so they don't track in the outside dirt, and to wash their hands before grabbing baby.
Seems really reasonable, right? You only ask that people who purport to love and cherish your child would bend over backward and walk on glass to protect this child. What do they do? Each visit they "forget" to take off their shoes, they keep walking when you and everyone else in the room reminds them. They go directly to grabby-grabby mode with the child, forgetting of course, that they have neglected to wash their hands. Then they make the excuse that they already picked them up, so whats the additional harm.
They basically have ignored your rules, and use the excuse, "I forgot." Say they run over someone in the crosswalk, is "I Forgot," a valid excuse? If they kill your child because they picked up some salmonella on the grocery cart and then passed it along to the child, is "I forgot," a valid excuse. Yeah, I think not.
This applies to a lot of boundary stomps.
Call you at 3:00AM to chat, "I forgot," that you have to get up in two hours and it takes you an hour to get back to sleep from the panic mode.
Drop off old, dirty and broken toys to the kids, "I forgot," that you asked me specifically not to do this.
Let your animals out, so they run away and are never found again, "I forgot," that they are indoor animals, and are not trained to be outside without people present.
The list goes on, but it is clearly a sign of disrespect and a power and control issues, since who are you to tell them what to do, so better to avoid conflict and ignore the request than to acknowledge it and change their behavior.
Alright I've officially had enough. We forgave you when you got drunk and crashed the care we were buying, when you fell asleep watching the kids and they both had kitchen knives, when you gave the 9 month old a bottle of prescription pills to play with, when you came to place we lived, ate our food lived at the pool and didn't help at all, when you stuck me with $5k of debt as a "gift"... the list goes on and on. You have never apologized nor accepted responsibility for any of it. Link
 
My ILs arrive and my DH is like hey can you all take off your shoes and I swear it's like pulling teeth. They aren't up in arms just act sort of oblivious. And everything is "oh haha okie dokie"-mil. Take off your damn flip flops how hard is it? Anyways this went on over and over throughout the visit. They'd come over and one of them would "forget" and walk onto our home. Like my DH would meet them at the door and mil would be walking into the kitchen with shoes on so I'd say hey can you take off your shoes and I swear I'm like ignored and DH is calling from behind to take off her shoes also.
So same with washing hands. My DH has to remind mil over and over. Like hey Mom wash your hands...no, wash your hands, please wash your hands before it like registers or she would do it. And she like auto grabbed at the baby without washing first. Then fil will wash his hands, grab a dog toy, rough house the dog, and touch my toddlers face. Link
 
I’m beginning to notice that my MIL does not listen to things we’ve requested for her to do. I.E. touch base with me once or twice a day, follow a feeding schedule, certain exercises our physical therapist wants done (son might need a helmet). She has an excuse for everything and a rebuttal to everything I ask of her. She’s read an article or doesn’t agree with our doctors or when she raised her kids she did this.. (30+ yrs ago). It’s getting to the point that it’s coming across as rude and disrespectful. When I ask for clarification because there’s hardly any communication on her end from what happened during the day, I get an attitude. Link
 

Missing Missing Reasons

This isn't a boundary stomp in and of itself, but is a major aspect of why people end up going no contact. You set a simple boundary butt the JustNO feels it is their duty to watch out for your health and wellbeing, so they feel free to ignore your pleas to stop, because you need to hear what they have to say. If you would just listen to them (bend to their will), everything would be fine. Missing Missing Reason article
They hear what you have to say, they just can't fathom that you could feel any different than them. They hear you and your reasons, they hear you tell them exactly what you need from them and how they are hurting you. But because THEY don't feel that way and are narcs who cannot understand that other people have different feelings than them that means you can't feel that way. It doesn't make sense to them and they can't take your word for it because that would mean stepping outside what they think and how they feel and what THEY want. And JustNO’s can't do that. They can't just do something out of consideration for another person because that concept doesn't exist for them.
I think I spoke for about half an hour, laying out all the ways she'd hurt us in the past year, all her inappropriate behavior. ... And then - she said this: "OK that's all fine and well, but what do you want me to apologize for...?" Seriously! I'd just explained that as well as I was able to without putting the actual words in her mouth! She kept pretending she didn't understand. Link
By extension, if it doesn't make sense to them, then it can't exist for you either, so it is not really a reason, and they need to continue to seek out the REAL reason why you are upset. Link
My wife divorced me because I left dishes by the sink
 

The Doctor (or health as a spectator sport)

The JustNO hears that you went to visit the doctor, or you had some minor medical procedure or god forbid you have some tests run. The JustNO blows up your phone. She visited the doctor once, and now she is an expert in the medical field and wants to know everything about everything. What did the doctor say? What are your symptoms, of course it is not as bad as when she had completely different thing, which she will tell you all about at length, but you still need to spill all the beans so she can tell all her friends how supportive she is and what a poor pitiful soul you are.
My phone starts to buzz around 1ish. It's Heartburn. I ignore the call, put the phone on silent and put it face down. I'm in to mood to socialize since I've just had a nurse play xylophone on my ribs. I mention it to DFH and it turns out she tried him first. Then his phone rings again. I tell him if he has to answer, tell her I'm fine and nothing else. Easy right?
Nope. She probes him so hard that he ends up telling her I have a consultant and that my test results will go back there. (This is after she whined that she was sooooo woooorieeeed because no one told her anythiiiing. There's literally nothing to tell.)
I asked him why he told her those things and he said "Well she asked." We had a row and he literally told me "Since I've done it wrong apparently, you can deal with her in future. She only cares."
She doesn't care. She wants the sympathy card because FDIL is poooorly. She literally makes it feel like she wants me to be ill.
Also no, I'm not dealing with her. I won't speak to her for this reason. She's not my mother. It's not my problem you can't keep your mouth shut. Also this is none of her damn fucking business. My health isn't a spectator sport. It's for me to decide who I tell about it and who I don't. I want to deal with it my own damn way.
Oh Boy
 

JustNO making SO Choose between You and Her

This comes up a lot. The JustNO wants to remain in the prime, number one spot in your SO's life. She wants to come in first for everything. The SO may be 30, married to you, has four kids, a house and job, but JustNO still has to be first in his life. He has to visit everyday and text ten times a day. The JustNO is getting upset constantly because you have changed SO and he no longer wants to spend every minute with her. Obviously it is your fault, and he just needs to send you on your way so they can be together. Ugh
After dinner is when the blow-up happens. MIL pulls my SO aside and is crying and very upset and tells him that he needs to choose between her and I and she is upset with him as a son. This seems to come out of nowhere, since nothing has been discussed (at least to my knowledge) up to this point. She made it clear she didn't like me, thought her son could do better, and that she was so sad her baby son moved away from home. Nothing about how her son joined the military and that's why he moved... I should mention that my SO handled this well. He flat out told her that she should never ask him to choose because she wouldn't like his answer and he came back to me right after dropping her off that night.Link
 

Impersonation

A JustNO will sometimes impersonate you for a variety of reasons. They may use this for fraud, to get money out of your bank, to get access to medical, school or employment records, to access you house or to derail your wedding or shower, or other event. This stems from a sense of entitlement that you and they are really the same person so it really isn't doing anything wrong.
Over the course of my pregnancy MIL has crossed just about every line imaginable, from impersonating me (to access medial files, be rude to my friends and cancel baby shops) to making copies of our door keys and letting herself into our flat to sending out invites to a baby shower we didn't want with a name we weren't using. Link
 

Intermittent Reinforcement

Flowers after days of the silent treatment. Crocodile tears after weeks of brutal insults. An unexpected extravagant gift after a rage attack. A sudden moment of tenderness after hours of critical remarks. What do these all have in common? In the context of an abusive relationship, they are all demonstrations of intermittent reinforcement – a dangerous manipulation tactic used to keep you bonded to your abuser.
There is almost always intermittent reinforcement at work in a relationship with a malignant narcissist or manipulator because abuse is usually mixed in with periodic affection at unpredictable moments. Intermittent reinforcement works precisely because our “rewards” (which could be anything from the fleeting normalcy of affection to a display of the abuser’s remorse) are given to us sporadically throughout the abuse cycle. This causes us to work harder to sustain the toxic relationship because we desperately want to go back to the “honeymoon phase” of the abuse cycle.
Intermittent reinforcement along with the effects of trauma ensure that we become “addicted” to the hope of reaping our “reward” despite evidence that we’re risking our own safety and well-being. Thought Catalog: Intermittent Reinforcement
 

Parenting Decisions

Some JustNO's just love to override parental authority. Decisions on what the child wears, what the child eats and what the children are exposed to and at what ages. Stepping on the parental alienation boundary, they plant ideas in their grandchildren's heads and set the child up for opposition. Gramma says
Maybe they don't like what you are feeding the kids. They don't like what religion you are raising them in, or what languages they speak. They don't like what you dress them in, either. You really can't do anything right.
Basically, I gave my 7yo son a sip of wine, because he asked for it and I thought it could be a teachable moment about alcohol (I knew he wouldn't like the taste, and was hoping that would keep him away from it/quell his curiosity). MIL found out, as my son told her on a facetime, and was very upset. She thinks its going to cause my son to be an alcoholic, I'm a terrible parent, I drink too much, all that jazz... call. Looking back, I made a huge mistake in telling her that, but hindsight is 20/20 unfortunately. Fast-forward, I'm done shopping, get back in the car, and open my phone to a string of texts from DH. MIL was AT THE HOUSE. during all this, with our son around?? I swear all I saw was red while I was driving home. I'm getting angry even typing this out now. I got home while she was still there and tried to keep my composure while demanding why she was at our house, to which she told me that she "needed to see what was going on around here." link
 

Just No wants you to be a surrogate for her

When a relative asks you to be a surrogate, it is not like Phoebe from "Friends" it can impact your relationships for life. Imagine having a little brother or siste in-Law that you have carried as your own kid. Imaging the boundary stomping that that would entail, and the amount of interaction that you would need with the In-law as you had to go through each and every doctor's appointment and eventual labor of someone else's baby. Familial surrogacy is strongly discouraged.
my 50 year old MIL has asked me to be her surrogate! Husband and I have been married for 3 months, we have spoken about having a child of our own but have put it off since we’re only 23. MIL has asked me to be her surrogate and idk how to react Link
It could be someone else, like your ex-so's brother and his wife that can't have children. After a long history of manipulation and awful behavior, you should do this for him. Yeah, Right.
How are you doing? We heard that you an ex bf are back together and the family is so happy. Me and my wife are so very happy for you guys too. (long rant about the personal struggles he and his wife were going through) And we are trying to have a child for over a year and just discovered neither of us can have children so when we heard you guys were back together we thought you both could be our surrogates, together. Isn't that awesome? He is my brother, you already have experience with it and we have already discussed everything with ex bf and he agreed, you guys will give us the ultimate gift. Let's facetime to settle everything this evening what do you think?' Link
 

"Can I ask you something without you getting angry?"

The answer is "NO! Absolutely not. You know that whatever you are about to say would make me angry and I probably have told you a thousand times that whatever you have to say on this subject is off limits and a boundary stomp." Sure it sound innocuous, and you are really supposed to say (in that crazy world that the squirrels in her brain have constructed) "But of course, why yes you can dump all the shit in the world on my shoulders and I will just smile, because I agreed that I wouldn't get upset."
Normally when this question is asked they know full well that it is normally something that would make you angry and they want to avoid the brunt of your justifiable anger, while still seeing you get upset and getting their Narc Feed off your recognition of their betrayal.
In fact, they are probably going to tell you something that you know already, like you have gained a few pounds and you are now overweight, but they just have to point it out because then you will eat less and be a much more healthy person, you should in fact thank them for their love and support. Maybe they will ask you about when they are getting grandchildren, after you have just put them on time out for two weeks because they have baby rabies and won't shut up about it because you need to have babies to fulfil your life and she is just innocently pointing this out and you get irrationally upset every time she points it out.
Except it doesn't work that way. They don't get to dictate your reaction before the fact, knowing full well what a normal reaction should be.
This won't stop them from telling you anyway, but at least then you can justifiably be angry at them without breaking some worthless agreement.
Drama Mama
 

Finding you a replacement spouse, fiance or SO.

Sometimes the JustNO hates you so much that they actively search for a replacement. Then to top it off they will point it out in front of you, while laughing about it.
The "funny story" turns into MIL telling DH that her and biddies were talking about how they wish they could match DH with the daughter and how perfect it would be. Don't you think it would have been perfect DH ??? At this point, DH gets pissed and says I already have a perfect wife and this is weird and walks away. I get home a few hours later and have no idea about this when MIL starts chatting and also tells me the "funny story" but more in a "isn't it so funny this girl has a crush on DH". Link
Maybe they don't actively search for a replacement spouse, but they will take the opportunity to introduce someone they like and hope that you will throw away your current one and like the one they present. Link
And JNMIL Tried to set me up on a date
And here's one where MIL tried to set up husband with a female co-worker, because she wanted an Hispanic DIL Link.
 

Finding someone to seduce spouse while you are away

When all else fails to split up your child with their horrible spouse, what else can you possibly do to drive a wedge between them?
Current move was to have a female try to seduce DH while I was back in my hometown taking care of my sick mother. Link
Then there are those JustNO's who will actually pay someone to seduce your spouse.
Shortly after this, JNMIL encouraged him to become friends with the daughter of a family friend. JNMIL then literally paid this girl to get DH to cheat on me with her, and was successful. I found out when I was 8.5 months along. JNMIL continued to encourage him to leave me, cheat on me, deny the baby, everything. He wavered A LOT, and definitely made some bad choices. Link
 

Encouraging your spouse to date other people

Sometimes a JustNO will really overstep. They may not like you, but there is a whole level of crazy where they suggest that your spouse go date someone else. They may actually set you up with blind dates without your knowledge.
At this point, MIL steps in and counsels BIL to start dating and seeing other women. She says things like, "the era of SIL is over," and "SIL will have to get a job now to support herself and those kids". She has also said "SIL hides behind her kids" just because SIL has better things to do than travel 2 states to be insulted to her face by her in-laws. MIL to this day (years later) encourages BIL to date other people and tells everyone else in the family he should date others as well. I have heard her state this as recently as a month ago. As a reminder, BIL and SIL are still very much married. Link
 

Telling you to break up with your SO

It is obvious to your JustNO that if you break up with your spouse/fiancé/SO that they will then bend over backwards to try to win you back. Of course, who will they run to in order to get the sage advise they need to get their life back on track, well, the JustNO of course. It only makes sense, they aren't following the life script that the JustNO has laid out, so get the SO out of the picture, they go running back and then once back on track the JustNO will allow them to get back with you, maybe, or someone else, it doesn't really matter to them. In fact it doesn't matter that their progeny is happy, may have children with you, they have a good paying job, a house, a dog, and two chickens in the pot.
She invited me out to lunch to try to convince me to BREAK UP after 5 YEARS with FDH thinking that would motivate him to get a better job in order to “win me back” When I told her I love her son, and that he seems very happy at the job he is at although he may not make as much money she doubled down. “But what if you break up with him? He might be more motivated to get a better job and make more money” Link
 

Paying you to leave your SO

Some JustNO's have the idea that you will just turn on your heel and leave their precious babies if they give you a sum of money, "to help you move out and get your own place." In reality it is just a bribe and really low and disgusting. There are two strategies, one is to take the money and go on vacation with your SO, and the other is to ignore, and tell everyone you know what a low down disgusting sewer rat your JustNO is.
On my lunch break, I went for my daily walk, when a car pulls up to me. It’s JNMIL, leaning out the window. She’s all smiles. She asks how I am, isn’t the weather great, it’s so amazing to see me up and about, I’m such an inspiration to her! (Note: I have one leg.) I don’t have much of a chance to reply. She says it must be hard for me to be nearing 40 and still live with a “roommate.” I’m used to her BS, but I stopped dead, seeing red. She offered me a gift of 10k for “being such a good friend to her daughter” and to “help me move into my own place.” Guys. It’s been seven years, and I thought she couldn’t do anything to surprise me, but she keeps out-doing herself. Link
 

Fake Break Up Letters

Maybe you just have to break into your Son's house when he is away on a business trip, and leave a neatly typed up break up letter for his wife or SO to read when she wakes up. I would guess that oversteps some boundaries somewhere.
He left very early in the morning for the trip. I slept and woke up to find a letter in the kitchen that, to summarize, read
-I’m not really on a business trip.
I’m breaking off the engagement because I cannot be attracted to you at this weight. I love you as a friend but don’t want to commit to living an unfulfilling life. I thought I could love who were enough to get past what you look like but I’m not strong enough. Please forgive me.
To make this as easy as possibly on both of us, I think it would be best if we don’t see each other for a while.
Take these next couple days to pack your things and make living arrangements. Please respect my wishes and be gone before I return.
*The really odd thing is he capped it all off with “I’ll always have a special place in my heart for our time together [distinct pet name].” It was not his writing style at all.
Even though he didn’t write this letter or have anything to do with it at all it’s stirred up a lot of dormant insecurities and fears that I am now having to experience and fiancé is having to help cope with while busy on a job site and recovering from emergency surgery.
I can’t believe the nerve of this woman. Fiancé called the cops so there’s a record of her breaking and entering at least but no neighboring cameras got her and we can’t prove she was inside the house so the police can’t charger her or anything. Link

AKA Robert - Beto O’Rourke: The incredible shrinking empty suit
Three-term congressman Beto O’Rourke, who gave up his House seat to run against Senator Ted Cruz in 2018 and lost narrowly, was touted as a serious contender for the Democratic presidential nomination when he entered the race earlier this year.
He was given star treatment by the media, including the cover of Vogue magazine, dubbed a “co-frontrunner,” and initially placed as high as third in opinion polls. But his campaign has since floundered, his fundraising has virtually collapsed, and O’Rourke has barely qualified for the third Democratic debate, set for September in Houston.
The fundraising is a particular noteworthy shift from 2018, when O’Rourke raised more than $80 million, more than double that of any other candidate for Congress last year, half of it from small donations over the internet. It now appears that this outpouring of support had more to do with the repulsiveness of Ted Cruz than with the positive attractions of Beto O’Rourke.
In the 24 hours after O’Rourke formally declared his presidential candidacy in an online appearance, his campaign raised over $6 million. But since, his poll numbers have trended steadily downward, the media has turned hostile—panning his efforts in the first two Democratic debates—and financial backing has begun to dry up.
In the second quarter of 2019, O’Rourke raised only $3.7 million, less than his one-day total when he entered the race. During that same period, his campaign spent $5.2 million, an indication that the enterprise was hemorrhaging cash and might have to be liquidated, sooner rather than later. O’Rourke presents himself with an air of little-kid wonder, with an optimism and cheerful populism that stands in inverse proportion to his political substance. For those unfamiliar with his repertoire of banal truisms, the following quote is a representative selection: “The power of people is what is necessary for us to accomplish our priorities.”
Behind the hype, who is this young ray of sunshine?
(Theatre of the Absurd - Robert O'Rourke changes a tire on a truck - note: did not say it was his truck. Who flattened the tire? 1:28 min - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HzlCBWArKzc )
“Beto” grew up in a 4,000-square-foot home, one of the first in the El Paso, Texas area with a swimming pool. He had a housekeeper. His mother owned a high-end store that retailed furniture, and his father, Pat O’Rourke, owned an apartment building, both on Stanton Street. His father ran two sweatshops staffed with labor from neighboring Juarez, Mexico. As a local social and political climber, he aspired to make El Paso the “Hong Kong of the southwest,” that is, a cheap labor haven. Both of the maquilas failed, however, and Pat O’Rourke was at best semi-successful in pivoting toward local politics, where he tacked to the left and right and back again as his career goals demanded.
The father supported the Reverend Jesse Jackson in his two presidential bids, and Beto has a photo of himself and the Democratic “civil rights activist” in his home. In a right-wing stunt, the same Pat O’Rourke, as county executive, sent then president Ronald Reagan an “invoice” for local hospital costs purportedly incurred as a result of illegal immigrants pouring into El Paso and straining social services.
Pat O’Rourke won election as county executive as a Democrat, left office after a single term, then ran again for the same position in 1998 as a Republican, aligned with the reelection campaign of Texas Governor George W. Bush, but he was badly defeated, since El Paso remained a Democratic stronghold even while Texas as a whole passed under Republican rule for several decades. According to the cover article of April’s Vanity Fair, his father put enormous pressure on Beto to make something of himself, shunning him for failing math, and ultimately shipping his son off to a boarding school in Washington, D.C. While studying at New York’s Columbia University, he wrote a research paper on the U.S. overthrow of Guatemalan president Jacobo Árbenz, founded an environmental club and frequented the punk music scene.
Throughout his twenties, Beto enjoyed a bohemian existence dotted with a drunk driving accident and a trespassing charge, before he moved back into the family home and opened a web design firm with $19,000 from mom and dad, “Stanton Street Technology” to wit.
In November 1999, he posted an article on Stanton Street Technology’s “City Talk Readers’ Forum” on a topic that would draw the attention of his future campaign financiers. “The big issue today is access to capital,” he wrote, “and whether or not banks are making credit available to the qualified small businesses in town who need it.”
Beto O’Rourke came into his own around this time, schmoozing with his father’s friends and business associates, making the rounds, joining the Rotary Club, the Hispanic Chamber of Commerce, and “every organization that would have me,” as he said. “If someone had an open slot, I wanted to be on it.”
By 2004, after his father’s death at the age of 58 in a bicycle accident, O’Rourke was considering his first political campaign for El Paso city council. It was around this time that his mother arranged a date for him with Amy Sanders, the daughter of local real estate mogul Bill Sanders.
Mogul might be an understatement, as Sanders had made hundreds of millions of dollars in the Chicago real estate scene, pioneered the investment instrument known as a REIT, or real estate investment trust, and was described by Bloomberg News in 1999 as “the Warren Buffett of real estate.” He moved from Chicago to Santa Fe, New Mexico, before returning to El Paso where he had grown up.
Funded by several of El Paso’s richest businessmen, Beto won a city council seat in 2005 on a platform of tax abatements for business. He married Amy shortly thereafter and became the chief promoter for an eminent domain redevelopment scheme centered on bulldozing working-class neighborhoods to make room for eateries and high-end stores on the downtown riverfront. Meanwhile, Bill Sanders formed the Borderplex Realty Trust, a holding company that bought up real estate in El Paso speculating on steep value increases as a result of the city’s (and Beto’s) gentrification plans. His fortune was estimated at $500 million in 2018—a solid “base” for an ambitious son-in-law.
By 2011, Sanders was encouraging O’Rourke to run for the U.S. House of Representatives seat held by a fellow Democrat and eight-term incumbent, Silvestre Reyes. Sanders established a Super PAC that spent some $240,000 attacking Reyes as corrupt.
O’Rourke won the primary and the election, along with two more in 2014 and 2016. His congressional tenure is marked by the pay-to-play crookery that, in its totality, comprises much of everyday bourgeois politics. He received campaign cash from employees of companies run by major donors. Employees of his father-in-law’s former company, Strategic Growth Bank, along with Sanders himself, donated $57,400 to O’Rourke’s 2014 and 2016 House campaigns. Likewise, employees of El Paso-based Western Refining gave $10,600 in 2014.
The biggest investment came from employees of Hunt Companies: $60,300 for the 2014 and 2016 election campaigns. In return, O’Rourke opposed decreases in defense appropriations that threatened Hunt Companies’ bottom line as the nation’s largest builder and manager of private housing for military personnel and families. O’Rourke assisted House Republicans in protecting $2 billion worth of subsidies to these large-scale slumlords.
Between 2016 and 2018, a foundation set up and funded by Woody Hunt of Hunt Companies paid Amy O’Rourke (a one-time teacher and charter school founder) $146,085 in “consulting fees,” a euphemism for services rendered.
O’Rourke was the 97th-richest person in the last Congress according to Roll Call. Tax returns show that between 2008 through 2017, nearly 40 percent of the O’Rourkes’ $3.4 million in income came from dividends, interest, capital gains and rental revenue from entities their parents owned or gave to them, including $1 million from two entities established by Amy O’Rourke’s father.
O’Rourke challenged Ted Cruz in the 2018 midterm election for Senator from Texas. O’Rourke campaigned on a national scale, appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show and winning endorsements from Beyoncé, LeBron James and former CIA director John Brennan. The campaign—Cruz won by a three-percent margin—served largely to stoke enthusiasm among Democratic donors in the 2018 midterm elections in which the Democrats captured two Texas congressional seats, in Houston and
Dallas, as part of the 40-seat swing that gave them control of the House of Representatives. Texas saw the highest voter turnout of any state, compared to previous midterm elections, as 3.7 million more voters cast ballots in 2018 than four years earlier. Voters in urban centers like Dallas, Houston, Austin and San Antonio showed up heavily for O’Rourke, but Cruz prevailed thanks to voters in the rural areas and mid-size cities.
“I learned a hell of a lot during that campaign,” O’Rourke said. “And I think at a time that our politics is so heavily scripted and tested and safe, there was something that was new and maybe even dangerous or different about the way that we ran this campaign.”
The Democratic wing of the American financial oligarchy learned something during that campaign, too. Here was someone with a proven record of service to big business and whose relative youth and supposed charisma might prove useful in 2020, either in the presidential race or in a contest against the other Republican senator from Texas, John Cornyn, a more establishment figure than the ultra-right Cruz.
O’Rourke identifies as a capitalist, rejecting the label “socialist” and even “progressive.” To date, his most developed policy proposal is a business-friendlier version of the Green New Deal, itself a political charade peddled by the less openly right wing of the Democratic caucus. O’Rourke’s plan highlights the private sector, drops the Green New Deal plank of full employment, and sets the goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions to zero by … 2050! While it has a price tag of $1.5 trillion—what the U.S. military burns through in two years —the plan mostly avoids specifics, including the source of that funding, although O’Rourke has in the past called for raising the minimum age for Social Security eligibility.
In an interview with the liberal magazine The American Prospect, O’Rourke claimed that his father-in-law with a $500 million fortune exerted no influence over his political agenda or program. William Sanders “made it a rule that he religiously followed, never to talk politics,” he said. This was apparently said with a straight face.
During his six years in Congress, O’Rourke showed no inclination to challenge the political establishment. Far from it: during his third term, which coincided with the first two years of the Trump administration, he voted 30 percent of the time with Trump, according to one vote tracking estimate. Open Secrets reported that in 2018 he accepted more contributions from the oil and gas industry than any other congressional candidate in the country—except for his opponent, Republican Ted Cruz.
To the extent that O’Rourke can boast any liberal credentials at all, he supports cosmetic changes in the criminal justice system, including legalizing marijuana and ending the cash bail system. He has defended NFL players who kneel during the national anthem to protest police violence. This type of “left” politics has an attractive price tag for the ruling class: it costs nothing.
On immigration, he stands boldly to the immediate left of the extreme right, favoring a “legal path to citizenship” and other paltry measures that preserve undocumented workers as a source of cheap labor for American businesses.
O’Rourke does not challenge the for-profit health care system. While he voices support for increasing public school teachers’ pay, his own spouse founded a charter school in El Paso and works for an organization that promotes them.
Finally, on foreign policy, O’Rourke defends the McCarthyite fiction of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election. In his 2018 Senate bid, O’Rourke attacked opponent Ted Cruz from the right for failing to condemn President Trump’s diplomatic meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
O'Rourke told The Dallas Morning News that Trump should face impeachment, saying he had “welcomed the participation of a foreign power into our election, that sought to sway that election in his favor” and “clearly obstructed justice in firing the principal investigator,” a reference to former FBI Director James Comey.
A great deal has been written about the style of Beto O’Rourke, his personal mannerisms and so on. He has a penchant for a stream-of-consciousness type of rambling one would expect from a motivational speaker or cult leader.
These are of course secondary matters. The point is rather, why does this veritable belt-fed machine gun of platitudes stand a chance at the most important political office in the world? The “Beto” phenomenon gives a political reflection to the hopeless impasse of American capitalism. A widening chasm separates the few haves and the countless have nots.
Unlike rivals Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren, Beto O’Rourke has not sought to demonize the billionaires or Wall Street when he feints to the left. Instead, he has sought to corner the market on liberal guilt, publicly disavowing his own “white male privilege.”
Most recently, in an effort to revive his flagging campaign—now on its second “restart”—this posturing reached a particularly grating climax. O’Rourke announced in mid-July that both he and his wife had traced their descent from slave owners. He wrote in a post on Medium that he had recently acquired documents showing that his paternal great-great-great grandfather listed two women, Rose and Eliza, as his slaves.
“I benefit from a system that my ancestors built to favor themselves at the expense of others,” he wrote. “We all need to know our own story as it relates to the national story, much as I am learning mine. It is only then, I believe, that we can take the necessary steps to repair the damage done and stop visiting this injustice on the generations that follow ours.”
O’Rourke said that since his family had benefited from slavery and the “ensuing forms of institutionalized racism,” he felt it necessary to support reparations for the descendants of slaves, and embraced the legislation offered by fellow Texas Representative Sheila Jackson Lee.
The candidate makes no apology for benefiting from the vast fortune raked in by his father-in-law from real estate speculation, one of the most predatory and socially destructive forms of capitalist plunder. He swallows this camel but strains at the gnat of a sixth-generation connection to the slave system, which was overthrown 154 years ago in one of the greatest and most liberating struggles in world history, the American Civil War.
The political purpose is transparent. O’Rourke hopes to curry favor with the black political establishment for a campaign that is in near-terminal condition. But the contrast between his breast-beating over a slave system that was destroyed long ago and his adamant defense of modern capitalism, which exploits and oppresses billions of working people today, is instructive.
