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.

I wish I had that much faith in the voters.

I'm unable to get away from feeling utter contempt for them. Too many of them are gullible and so famed naive as to be actually a few light years down beneath contempt.

I honestly expect too many of them to get rolled again in 2018 and 2020. I've never hoped to be proven wrong on ANYTHING as much as this.

Michelle Obama is right. But too many Americans are just beyond help, it seems.


God BLESS these people!

There's TRUE courage.

They're genuine red-white-&-blue American HEROES. Good Grief - they're putting their own lives and their bodies on the line - which sure is more than most of those pantywaists on that Senate panel ever have. They saved their health care - AND everyone else's, too. God BLESS every single one of them! They make me proud to be an American.

Guys - we can do NO less than make damn sure WE have THEIR backs, every single time! We can never let up, because the bad guys refuse to give up their evil, godless, cold-hearted, mean-spirited, just-plain-shitty objectives. WE CAN NEVER LET UP! And those of us who are able-bodied and have our health - have NO EXCUSE whatsoever.

She's MY President.

Oh, Dear God what we've lost. What we've SQUANDERED...

It really hurts.


Love George Takei!

Yep, unfortunate and true.

Also, there's another thread featuring lots of photos of Sarah Palin wrapping herself in the flag (and other cheap fashion desecrations of Old Glory). If Hillary had posed for any photos like that, she would have been crucified.

Looks like a fair amount of flag desecration to me.



Can I just point out one other thing?

I find it extremely difficult to see why people are getting upset at the sight of an athlete falling on one knee.

I've never met a woman who didn't somehow secretly hope to be proposed to, that way. Including myself (my husband did that). I see NOTHING wrong or disrespectful about adopting such a posture. NOTHING. It is courtly, reverent, elegant, and a position of humility and of showing honor and respect.

What? They'd rather see a downward-turned head and a fist in the air like two US Olympic athletes offered, a few decades back?

I think this whole uproar is absolute bullshit.
