    I live on social security, in a low income disabled building. I live in mortal fear of being broke and homeless if they get their way.

    Clancy I'm never sarcastic.

    I'm retiring next year. All our income will be Social Security, pensions, and 401k. I'm especially worried about Medicare, and separately, our daughter has diabetes. Plenty to worry about, so I can empathize.

    I feel both of you. It's been an emotional shitshow since November, and while I don't remember 1968 I read enough history and know enough people who do to be quite concerned.

    Things in my lifetime include the Kennedy assassination, the 1965 Newark race riot, and the Kent State massacre. We are not there yet. But in two years...who knows?

    Bet you weren't expecting to see the likes of those times again, eh? :/

    No. Last time we had the draft and Vietnam, but we also had health insurance. I'm gonna call it here. I expect assassinations.

    Wish I could disagree with that assessment.

    Well, I had the same fear about my assisted housing at least, since I'm sure there are Republicans who would like to just zero-fund HUD. (Yes, to kill HUD technically there are a whole raft of laws that would have to be undone but if they have no money they can't cut checks.) However, I've read that Trump is making a bundle on real estate for assisted housing! So as long as Trump remains in office we should be safe...

    So I have figured out how to update my profile and watch threads. What else do I need to know how to do with this forum system.

    Nice place you've got here. Could use a few more drapes or tapestries on the walls for me to lurk in though.

    We're still working on putting the finishing touches on the decorating, I think.

    No problem, I'll just hang out in the corner, looking inconspicuous.

    Hoods and glowing eyes don't usually end out working that way, though.

    I just want to say that the forum looks great, and is really responsive through my internet connection. Thank you to all who are contributing the effort to put this together!

    I forgot to say: I really like the ability to start a poll. :)

    I also want to add that this forum software looks and operates extremely nicely on my mobile device, so excellent choice.

    Which also means that Disqus doesn't suck due to technical limitations...it sucks because no one in charge of it cares enough to fix the damn thing. o_O

    Fixing it would cost money. Until lost revenue from mobile users giving up on it exceeds the cost of making it not suck--which may not be unsubstantial, depending on just how foundational its flaws are--there's no business case to fix it.

    Is there a link somewhere on your Patheos page to send people here to the forums? I'm looking but not seeing it. I found my way here from a mention in the comments.

    (But that doesn't mean it's not there, I can be looking straight at the salt carton in the pantry and not see it. My daughter has this too, we've named it "salt blindness")
