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.

Excellent point.

How ‘bout you stop watching TV all day and tweeting about what you see, donald, and READ THE DAMN REPORT!!!

That's one of the new games I play.

The “...and I’ll bet you’ll insist you’re ‘pro-life’.”

If you’re a soldier whose main bottom-line job is to kill the bad guys if necessary, then that kinda rules out your claims of being “pro-life.” You just want to dominate women’s bodies.

If you’re gonna say you’re “pro-life,” then you really can’t be in the soldiering business, unless you work in a military hospital.

I should probably qualify this a little more. There are MANY in the military, probably most, who are in it for the patriotism, protecting their country, and all the life forms in it. But sometimes the grim work has to be done to back that up. And that involves "killing the bad guys." So it's a fine line to walk. But both are true. Which is why we need diplomacy, for example. If you get in a shooting war, and it's you or them, well, okay. I get it.

But that's still taking a life. And if exceptions can be made on this scenario, why is that not the case for a woman with an unwanted pregnancy? Why is THAT an exclusion? Why does that NOT count?

My point is - if one is going to plant the flag for "pro-life," one can't just pick 'n' choose what to impose on someone else with whom you disagree or who you don't think deserve to make their own decisions without outside interference.

Pro-life is pro-life. It allows for NO wiggle-room. It's a binary choice. This OR that. Period, full stop. It is a flat statement. NO exceptions. War is not okay. The death penalty is not okay. NO "...pro-life, except in the case of ... " It is SIMPLE, STRAIGHTFORWARD, ALL THE TIME, ACROSS THE BOARD.

And they are well aware of the "no way to treat your friends" thing.

They’re pretty doggone smart. Ask them about COVID containment, for example.

Just following the lead of their feckless "leader" perhaps?

We're gonna remember this, too.

You GOPers are going to be reminded that you acknowledged Joe Biden is “a good man who can help us heal.”

Hope you don’t mind that we’ll be borrowing that quote. And faring FAR better as a country under REAL leadership, not the FAKE reality-show kind.

That's what I remember every day.

“We”? Don’t lump me in there, either!

I worked nonstop, blogged, knocked on doors, made phone calls, and donated to support Hillary. This was forced on me under protest.

I console myself by the thought that I’ll be able to report I got this one right when it’s time to face St. Peter at the Pearly Gates.

I'm sorry it's come to this for you.

Watching the state devolve under republi-CON “leadership” has been very dispiriting.

Outstanding collection!

trump isn't doing anything because he expects Putin to pop in and save him at the last minute.

He thinks Putin's gonna help him cheat his way back to the winner's circle again.

But if we all vote, we can overpower that, and wipe that "advantage" OFF THE MAP!
