FUCK 'em.

NOT A PENNY from me, they'll get. They can go pound sand, and maybe charge people to watch.

Sweet stuff, my friend.

Charles M. Schulz, the creator of the “Peanuts” comic strip, came up with a wonderful slogan: “Happiness is a Warm Puppy”. Sounds like it fits perfectly here, Duncanpup.

A three-sider!

Good, Better, and Best!

I like that idea!

Sounds like something to write one’s congressmember about.

The Supreme Court is in dire need of some guardrails. And immediately if not sooner.

My favorite part:

“Yes, it’s true, women are sick of the sexist rhetoric. The diabolical lie we have been told is to stay in our lane. Those who believe that can expect us to run you off the road.”

So am I.

Btw, reinforcements are out there, and very available. Check out the Democratic, progressive, environmental, or Indivisible groups near you.

Our local Indivisible group is active! We…
- write guest editorials and letters to the editor,
- gather to wave signs on busy traffic corners,
- organize events,
- organize and/or join meetings with other groups,
- host monthly “Postcard Parties” at a popular local restaurant where we write postcards to our reps to nag them to support OUR issues or to stop ignoring what we want, and more!

We do quite a few of these gatherings-with-purpose, and everyone’s invited. We also team up with other local groups of shared interest. You leave these things feeling like you actually DID something to back up and spread what you believe in. It can be quite gratifying!

AND MOST IMPORTANT: you discover that you’re not alone in how you feel about the issues and the state of things.

HEARTILY recommended!

That's a good one!

Gotta say, he sure does inspire great cleverness!

About calimary

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.
