About Me

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.

Yep. That's about the size of it.

That's how you'll know what they're up to. They'll accuse some Democrat of it.

That's what I thought, too. How thoughtless and cruel people are -

or have allowed themselves to become.

I think it's the trump effect. He made it okay to be "out 'n' proud" with your prejudices and insults and bad ideas and idiot positions and wrong ideas. He's made it okay for the total bastardization of the right to free speech - which now allows any proud, defiant, in-yer-face know-nothing an equal seat at the table with science, truth, and objective provable FACTS.

I guess I don't feel like that much of a free-speech advocate anymore. I think that mindset should be muzzled. I think damaging and false information should NOT be allowed to be aired in public. I don't think it deserves a seat at the table. I think it should be openly decried and denounced and NOT given a microphone or a venue to spout shit. And I'm not sure how that would be accomplished in this country, now. But now we've got separate "world-views" competing for air and light and attention. And they're all given the same level of "legitimacy." Hell, we've got Qanon nuts now running for office, and earning their party's (mainly republi-CON) nomination! There's such a freakazoid here in Oregon running for the US Senate right now, for Pete's sake! Such an individual shouldn't be found anywhere outside a padded cell. And, of course, there's the donald as well...

I'm not sure if we're ever going to be able to climb back up out of this.

I'm so sorry to hear this - DEAR GOD what people are going through, these days...

We're here - to hear, dear kpete.

I'm so sorry you and your extended family are going through this.

Hell, I'm sorry ANY of us has to deal with this.

I keep thinking - THIS wouldn't be happening if Hillary had been president. She paid attention to science and never put propping up her own ego first. She would have handled this much differently, and followed what the science and medical experts said.

I apologize - probably should be looking more forward than backward. But I cannot help thinking of what could have been - and how many more Americans would be alive now, to be with their families. I'm kinda stuck there, feeling and sounding like the proverbial broken record.
