LW, on the one hand you'd like to have a happy family holiday experience, but on the other hand you know it'll never happen. You told us why. You can wish and hope and click your heels together three times, but you already know your future unless something profound changes.

Your options as I see them: Go through with it, Dan's advice 'n all, knowing you'll be miserable, but grabbing a few moments of joy when you're all around the table. Which will be destroyed once Mum opens your mouth, but at least you had a moment.

Tell Mum she's not invited and tell her why. You've already told her, so it won't come as a shock. You say, "We've been over this before, and it doesn't matter what you think of it. Your children and their families all agree that you won't allow us to have fun and enjoy ourselves. Bye!"

Or a compromise: You do the same thing as above, except you schedule Mum for one or two days, and then send her off. But if you don't say anything and allow things to go on, you're going to have a miserable time. You know it, your spouse knows it, and now everyone in SLLOTD-land knows it.

Yep. This just goes to prove that every gun-nut is right: Knives are just as deadly as a gun. A crazed guy with a knife is just as dangerous as one with a gun, but you don't regulate knives, no do you?

Yep. Just as deadly. If the targets are all disabled and in bed. It's just the same as if they were able-bodied adults in a movie theater, or kids in a school.

(and because Poe's Law.... /s)

"Conspiracy theory," lmao. In Mr. Smith's world, Al Capone being a murderer is just a "conspiracy theory" because it was never proven. He's just a tax evader! See? You silly little no-nothings, go back to sleep.

The scandal goes far beyond just the emails. There is evidence to show that the vote was rigged. Enough for Sanders to file a lawsuit. From anyone who knows him, this is not how he operates unless he's got something serious. He'd rather haggle and make a deal.

There was widespread evidence of vote fraud (*not* "voter" fraud as the Rs would have you believe, but fraud in the counting) back in '04, and certainly in '00. When Obama took office, acted all high & mighty, to get rid of corruption in DC, he attempted a lot. Why didn't he go after the voting machines? Not a word. Anyone? Anyone? Beuller?

Because instead of getting rid of it, the Dems wanted to use it. It sucks, but there it is. In at least three major states, the exit polls varied widely from the end results. You loyal liberals can try to dismiss the clown-car that was the CA primary, but all your showing is extreme party loyalty before the good of the country. You know, the same exact thing that the Rs have been doing for two decades now. You know, the same exact thing that we have criticized them endlessly over.

I've been invoking Poe's Law constantly over the past week.

When I read this, I thought it was about friends of mine. But then she mentions a kid, so I'll be squee-free next time I see them.

But good god, there seems to be a lot of this going around.

He's got very unlikable eyes. And he doesn't so much smile and grimace with enthusiasm. Being nominated as potential veep killed Palin's political career. Let's hope history repeats itself.

Yeah, calling a bunch of people "disgusting" wasn't meant to offend anyone. Another non-apology apology.

It was a good move to get rid of him, however. Nothing says, "We will continue to beat up, harass, and hopefully kill people of color and no federal judge is going to change that" better than keeping an asshole bigot like Ron Smith as your leader.

Well, that's one way to make sure you can stand behind your words.
