What he said!

August 31, 2021

Indeed. At least they're pointing that out.

And it absolutely SHOULD be pointed out.

He did the right thing. Or maybe we should ask how much is enough spending as we tally up the BILLIONS of dollars basically thrown down a rat hole over there? How many more lives of our troops should be sacrificed on that “altar of useless waste”?

I think the U.S. needs to reassess our role in the world, and this hard-on we seem to cling to - about “nation-building” in parts of the world where they DON’T see things the way we do, don’t believe the same things we do, don’t worship the same way we do, don’t want or value the same things we do, and don’t live the same way we do.

Again you speak for me, Tiedrich!

August 31, 2021

Well, there is that.

I wouldn't want to sit in any chair that trump sat in. EEEEUUUWWWWWWWW.

Heaven only knows how it smelled by the time he left.

Hell probably DOES know.

I hope they fumigated the place, THOROUGHLY! And sterilized everything to get all the trump off.

That'd work!

Keith Olbermann evidently is hard to work with, so I've heard. But I think he's worth it. Nobody raises hell with the damned GOP like he does!

August 31, 2021

But it's taking too damn long.

I want him and all his little friends in LEG IRONS. NOW!!!

August 31, 2021

Well, to the GOP there's always money for war.

But try to use that kind of money to help the poor, needy, sick, homeless - those Jesus referred to as "the least of these" - and you'd almost get your head handed to you (by some of these self-proclaimed "Christians" ).

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.
