About Me

I am 57, retired teacher and illustrator, life-long dem., activist, union member. Also I do not use social media and I'm technologically retarded. I love dogs, rock music and swearing (a lot). My 17 year old "puppy" died on June 2, 2020. She grew up listening to Animals (Pink Floyd). She has kept me sane through the tRump years, not easy, and has given me endless love, companionship, kisses and tail wags.

DU Poll: Is appointing a special prosecutor a good or bad thing?

A special prosecutor is a good thing.....

He is non-partisan, it is fully funded, it is relatively quick and can't be derailed by the GQP easily. These are the same reasons I was calling for a special prosecutor for tRump in 2017.

I doubt Garland will edit 90% out of the report like Barr did.

Republicans win U.S. House majority, setting stage for divided government

Source: Reuters

Republicans were projected to win a majority in the U.S. House of Representatives on Wednesday, setting the stage for two years of divided government as President Joe Biden's Democratic Party held control of the Senate. The victory gives Republicans the power to rein in Biden's agenda, as well as to launch potentially politically damaging probes of his administration and family, though it falls far short of the "red wave" the party had hoped for.

The final call came after more than a week of ballot counting, when Edison Research projected Republicans had won the 218 seats they needed to control the House. Republican victory in California's 27th Congressional district took the party over the line.

Democrats have been buoyed by voters' repudiation of a string of far-right Republican candidates, most of them allies of Trump, including Mehmet Oz and Doug Mastriano in Pennsylvania's Senate and governor's races respectively, and Blake Masters in Arizona's Senate contest.

Even though the expected "red wave" of House Republicans never reached shore, conservatives are sticking to their agenda.

MSNBC just said GQP has the House, Dems lost.

Shit! I am going to get a drink, or 4.

I am irritated with the media, whether or not they are "Liberal"

I said for weeks and weeks to ignore the polls and the BS opinions of the media. I know they are full of shit and big $$$$$$ and are skewed.

Yesterday, on MSNBC Joy Reid acknowledged that the pollsters and the media (including MSNBC) blew it and now Ari Melber is saying the same thing. Now he has Michael Moore back on from a week ago and Ari told Michael he was right...that there would be NO RED WAVE !!!!!

Polls are BS these days and the media is after ratings/$$$$$.

Will they learn their lessons? I doubt it. They do not want to be accurate, they want to create emotional responses which pays them big bucks. My dad told me to ignore polls and studies. Dad was right. He also said the GQP was a "bunch of greedy hypocrites".

Biden Stops Mid-Speech

PRESIDENT JOE BIDEN
Biden Stops Mid-Speech to Recognize San Diego Teen's Sign About His Stutter...

https://www.nbcsandiego.com/news/local/biden-stops-mid-speech-to-recognize-san-diego-teens-sign-about-his-stutter/3089213/


Amid a crowd of hundreds watching President Joe Biden speak at a North County campaign event for Rep. Mike Levin on Thursday, Jared Smith and his handwritten sign stood out. It read: “Thank you for having a stutter.”

About 20 minutes into the speech, President Biden noticed it, but couldn’t read it.

"I’ll catch you later, OK?” Biden told Smith. “I have no idea what it says. It has a small print on it.”

"A woman nearby then jumped in and read it out loud."

“Oh god love you,” said President Biden."

“I really wanted to thank him for working a thankless job and being an example of someone with a stutter or speech disability,”

"Smith has a speech impediment."

***Meanwhile, tRump makes fun of people with speech issues. THAT is the difference of being a real man and being a bully.


Julie Powell, Food Writer Known for 'Julie & Julia,' Dies at 49

"She documented her attempt to cook every recipe in Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” in a popular blog that became a best-selling book and a hit movie."

"Julie Powell, the writer whose decision to spend a year cooking every recipe in Julia Child’s “Mastering the Art of French Cooking” led to the popular food blog, the Julie/Julia Project, a movie starring Meryl Streep and a new following for Mrs. Child in the final years of her life, died on Oct. 26 at her home in Olivebridge, in upstate New York. She was 49."

"Her husband, Eric Powell, said the cause was cardiac arrest."

"Ms. Powell narrated her struggles in the kitchen in a funny, lacerating voice that struck a nerve with a rising generation of disaffected contemporaries."

Remember Obama greeting Superman on Hallowween?



How cool is that? "That's POTUS".

Jill Biden was really great today too.
