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.

WUNNNNNNNNNNNNNderful!

But the thing everybody forgets, about this (or maybe avoids?)

is that assuming we can just vote him out in 2020 is agonizingly naive.

1) The Russians are still here. They haven’t gone away, or been driven away, or locked out. And at this point, we can reasonably suspect China and Saudi Arabia and the UAE and other international oppositionals are joining the feeding frenzy if they’re not deep into it already. Hey, since the Russians proved it’s possible to get YOUR pick for POTUS who will be much more sympathetic to YOUR interests than even America’s own, then shit! Everybody into the pool!
And if the Russians were motivated to help trump because of how it would advantage THEM, then they’ll be even more highly motivated to move Heaven and Earth to keep trump in office. To keep that advantage in place - since he’s been exposed and could sing like Pavarotti if he fails to win and then becomes subject to prosecution as a private citizen. If they can keep their asset in office til 2024, that eases him safely past the expiration of the statute of limitations that expires in 2022 and into safe legal territory.

2) Democrats are really good, reliably good, infuriatingly good, at wilting. Becoming discouraged or disheartened and giving up. Deciding there’s no point, or “they’re all the same/both sides-both sides!” Throwing up their hands in disgust and staying home. And there goes our numerical advantage.
Or, my fear: the Dems will decide it’s smarter to shy away from serious political combat and fail to impeach because they think the Senate won’t convict (so why stir things up like that - oh dear! We might make somebody mad!). Or because they’re afraid they’ll alienate independents or wavering ex-GOP voters in 2020, so going REEEEEEALLY slow and sending a lot of those sternly-worded letters to this White House should be enough. I think we’d be apt to see tons of pissed-off Democratic activists who ask “why the hell did I work so hard to flip the House if they finally got the majority power needed to hold this monster accountable - and they wimped out? So why should I even bother?” And they’d stay home on Election Day and become next-to-impossible to woo back.
THAT’S what I fear most.

We HAVE TO get ON with it. We HAVE TO impeach.

Wow! This whole thread is a KEEPER!

But maybe we also need a comic book version. And/or a coloring book. With crayons. For the slow-to-catch-on crowd in the House of Reps for example. In the Senate - DEFINITELY a coloring book with crayons. And no sharp points on those crayons. Some of those Grahams and Grassleys and Kennedys might hurt themselves...

And for him, that's trump?????

What’s he been smoking?

I bet CON activists have been working on him - HARD. Bet they have him targeted for flipping.

Good Grief...

Yeah. No shit.

That definitely is a good idea!

I watched her latest TV town hall. VERY impressed.

I found her fiery conviction, as authentic and forceful as can be, to be tremendously appealing. You could feel it - the intensity. She’s for real. And outraged and burning with anger over the deterioration of the spirit of this country.

Fiery. That’s the word that kept coming up in my mind as I watched her. She burns with outrage. Guess what - so do I!!! I'm right there with her: pissed off as Hell!

YAY!!! I love happy endings for fur babies!

During these grim times, seems to me we all need as many of ‘em as possible!

Ooooh - LIKE that one, pansypoo53219!
