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.

That would be a red light to me.

They SHOULD be willing to pay more.

Because they’re best able to shoulder more of the burden. Besides, look at all the benefits they enjoy.

Noblesse oblige. Much blessed, much obligated.

Metaphorically speaking, but it fits. Sad to say.

Doesn't Matt Gaetz have six or seven DUIs on his record?

Well, that's finally some good news.

Meanwhile, trump and most of his sleazy friends still stroll around in the open, free as birds.

My mind is blown.

Even Nixon wasn't this corrupt.

Color me completely FLABBERGASTED.

And we're still taking the long slow road toward MAYBE-impeachment? Might this change the calculus a little?

On edit - PLEEEEEEASE call your Reps! PLEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEASE!!! If not a message or text or use ResistBot on your phone - anytime around the clock. It's 50409. Or call their offices tomorrow first thing! We have to move Congress, even if it seems like trying to move the whole planet (of course much of the planet would be with us on that, I suspect).

This is ENOUGH. ENOUGH of this. He needs to be shown The DOOR.

Damn straight.

So, um, what do you intend to do about it, Chairman Schiff?

What, if anything, do you intend to DO about it?

What, if anything, do you plan to do with all that power that WE, your BASE, worked like hell for two years to flip the House so you could have that power, and wield that gavel in committee?

What are you going to DO about it?

Sternly-worded letters, tweets, and statements -and even threats - just ain’t gonna make it.

Yeah, he's impressed me as well.

Brains, for one. Able to process, draw reasonable conclusions, and then articulate them well. Beaucoup de valuable experience, both executive and military. And I have a bit of a bias toward Rhodes scholars. Intellect is a good thing, especially when applied for the benefit of the greater good. And he checks all those boxes, plus charm and good looks, and a strong air of integrity about him.

I could easily vote for him with enthusiasm. I’ll vote for anything with a “D” after its name, but there are some for whom I will do so half-heartedly. But not with this guy!

Here's a big hug.

Well, a bunch of ‘em, my friend.

Went through this with my dad. Even when you know the end is near, and even when it almost seems “welcome” - for the sake of the end of suffering, it’s STILL damn hard.

Damn hard.

My heart and my hard-earned memories are with you, sister.

If only.
