UnfuckwithableMy name is Amy and welcome to my little corner of the Lush world. Working mom (and grandmom) sharing my life with my loving partner. She does not share my Lush life and we'll just leave it at that. The avatar is not me. I do have pictures, but they are for friends only. Anything else you may be curious to know, just ask.I borrowed this from someone who means the world to me: "So, moving on. Another adventure, another phase of my life. Things are looking up and I couldnt be happier." I couldn't be any happier either, to be moving on and finding adventure with someone I love and care about so much. You make me so happy Lesley and hand in hand we will take this journey together. "The only people I owe my loyalty to are those that never made me question theirs."I enjoy posting in the forums with friends, decorating their walls, and occasionally you can find me in a chatroom. Please, if you do see me in chat, don't whisper to me if you don't know me. There is generally no good reason for it. Random chat requests and friend requests will be summarily dismissed.Just so you don't waste your time, you really won't interest me if:-- You don't have an avatar (hate those red & white things)-- You have slut, cunt, whore, mom or mommy in your name. No need to explain.-- You are new and post a slew of nude pics of yourself for all to see. I know they really aren't you.-- You found your pics on the internet. It will only take me about 30 seconds to find them too.-- You associate with troublemakers. I have no time for you.-- You send me an FR and you are fairly new, or we have never interacted in some meaningful way.-- You fooled me once. You don't get a chance to do it twice. "Haters start rumors, fools spread them, idiots believe them." Don't be the next idiot taken in. Just sayin'. Or to put it another way: You heard a story about me? From someone who hates me? Well, damn, that shit MUST be true!! Getting the point people?? Good.If for any reason anyone ever feels offended by anything I say or do? You'll get over it. Or not. Not really my problem... I'm not the one who's offended.Lush is a wonderful place filled with beautiful people if you know where to look. I love being part of this amazing little community. There is no place like it anywhere else on the internet. I've met some wonderful people, made some amazing friends. I hope you all find what you are looking for too. Happy Lushing Everyone!!
Thanks for the thread Liz. Though I have a soft spot in my heart for Willy Wonka, having read the book first then watched Gene bring the character to larger than life, his role in Young Frankenstein will always be my favorite. But beyond that he was such a truly lovely man, and when Gilda passed away it was both his depth of sadness and his strength to carry on and make sure her death would never be in vain that made him the just a bit more special than most. Will miss you Gene. https://upload.lushstories.com/832995771-118.jpg https://upload.lushstories.com/308988756-aVemWjn_700b.jpg

Getting back to the title of the thread now... no, I no longer worry about a Donald Trump Presidency. He's falling like a rock in the polls (which are not rigged, they are a reflection of the electorate at a given point in time) which I kind of always figured he would. His appeal is not very wide and its becoming quite apparent that once you get past his beloved "uneducated" supporters his appeal is pretty much limited to older white males. He's burned his bridges with minorities of every stripe, most notably the black and hispanic vote. It was pretty clear early on that he had little room to grow his base of support beyond those who came out to get him the nomination and thats now proving to be exactly whats happening. There are red states and there are blue states, Republican and Democrats that will vote for their parties candidates no matter who it is. Those votes never change and those states rarely change hands. Its the swing voters and the swing states that will decide this election, as they have most elections in my lifetime. And its in those key states and those key demographics that Trump is trailing badly. And so now I breathe that huge sigh of relief.The scariest part about a Trump nomination was that he could do what most candidates do once they win the nomination. Playing to your base will win you the nomination from your party, but it won't win you a general election. Thats where you need to soften your tone and move yourself closer to the center of the political spectrum in order to win over those swing voters and take those swing states. They don't call them "swing states" for no reason. But Trump has been unwilling to change. Acting the way he did to whip up the support of the hardliners and the low info voters is now actuallly alienating everyone else. He's losing big time and he knows it and his supporters know it. The Republican party knows it too, and those who haven't distanced themselves from Trump yet will do so soon, lest risk losing their own seats in Congress. Just as riding the coattails of a popular candidate can sweep a party into power, being attached to someone so unpopular will drag the same people down with him. And make no mistake about it, his unfavorable ratings are so bad its pretty much become unrecoverable. Trump is now unelectable and only his hardline anti-establishment supporters still have their head in the sand about it. It's ironic that flipping the bird at the establishment from a group of people whose love of Trump is only rivalled by their hatred of Hillary Clinton has wound up pretty much guaranteeing her the White House. I was never a fan of Cruz or Rubio (I personally liked Kasich, who was probably the most electable of the bunch) but either of the them had a good chance of making a contest out of it. The day Trump won the nomination, Clinton started writing her inauguration address. You may not like her, and its a very sad thing that the choice in this election has come down to "the lesser of two evils" but when given a choice between a career politician and bat shit crazy, bat shit crazy loses every time. Now, if you disagree with anything I said, I really don't care. It's an opinion, nothing more. Agree with me or tear me apart, it's of no concern to me. I happen to think Donald Trump is a narcissistic xenophobic bigot who hasn't really got the slightest clue how things work in the real world. He would be a massive danger to the economic future of this country and the most dangerous leader on the world stage in a generation (which is actually saying a lot given the number of fucking maniacs running some of the countries in the world already)... but fortunately at this point I can honestly say I am no longer fearful of him winning, and no longer terrified. He is not being taken seriously anymore and has no chance of winning the general election. The only thing left to decide is if America hands Congress over to the Democrats too, just in case. But thats an issue for another day, and another thread perhaps. https://upload.lushstories.com/1838088939-donald-trump-apocalypse.jpg
I'll love you forever We'll always be together. Your words stole my heart A promise never to part. I'll always be true My fears shared with you. Shared secrets, my soul to bare Now I know, you'll always be there. Knowing each other intimately Two people as one, for all to see. By collar and chain, bound for life You took a vow, made me your wife. Baby, there's no need to worry Who...

A bleak world surrounds me Heavy clouds in a dark threatening sky. Life goes on around me And still the unanswered question, why? I'm searching for something Wondering if I will ever fly. Grounded, frustrated Without warning, you caught my eye. My world suddenly brightened When the rays of sunshine that are you, Shone into my world And made me feel complete. And new. The first time we...
