I just realized 5 minutes ago..........

that my grandmother (my 86 year old mom's mom) was 25 years old before she could vote, she was born in 1895. I loved my grandma.

My late dad's mom was 27 before she could vote, she was born in 1893. I never met her.

In 3 generations we've gone from gaining the vote to being on the cusp of our first woman President.

I told my 86 year old mother, not to laugh.........

but she didn't just not laugh, she howled. She was

I told her who Trump wanted for his AG (Giuliani) and Secretary of State (Gingrich)

My 86 year old mother's texting history............

I heard mom's phone buzzing, indicating an incoming text message. Of course I had to locate mom's phone, it was in a bag on her walker. Which wasn't even near her as she was sitting at he dining room table.

I grabbed it & gave it to her. I looked at it and saw it was from my sister-in-law, thanking mom for her birthday wishes. Mom looked at it & said "I didn't send any soup over." I looked over mom's shoulder & pointed out the thank you for Birthday wishes. But Mom was insistent on wanting to know when she sent soup over. I pointed out the date of that text it was, December 8, 2015. So only 2 texts from her daughter-in-law in 1 year.

Mom also has to stop reading texts from top to bottom. "Mom, the bottom one is the most recent".

I sent her a text 3 days ago she hasn't read yet.

Did I miss it or did the Pgh. Post-Gazette.........

not endorse a candidate for President?

I need to rent a car........

and I don't have a major credit card in my name. Any suggestions?

When the hell are people going to wake up?

These are just a few headlines of DU posts this past week....

Biggest Asshole of the Week
This has been an outstanding week of exceptional assholery. I can't decide which of these cretins is worse.

1. Donald Trump - Too much shit to even quantify.
2. Clarence Thomas - Reckless ass grabbing.
3. Newt Gringrich - Hypocritical slut shaming.
4. Bundy Jury - WTF???
5. James O'Keefe - More bullshit videos.
6. Mark Kirk - Insulting a disabled vet and her entire family.
7. Alex Jones - Bless his heart.
8. Any random Trump spokesperson - Babbling crazy shit.
9. Megan Kelly - Race baiter extraordinaire discovering social issues that affect only herself.
10. Mike Pence - I'm sure he said something stupid. It just got lost in the tsunami of other bullshit.
11. John McCain - Blocking all SCOTUS picks.
12. Darrell Issa - Trying to make buddy-buddy with Obama after being a total shit.
13. Rudy Giuliani - See number 10.

Just said good-bye to my niece..........

and her boyfriend (soon to be husband, he proposed while here). They are leaving to go home to Australia in a few hours. She posted her absentee ballot while home. He's British, so he doesn't vote, until he marries her & applies for US citizenship.

I hope & pray that in 2 weeks she won't have to try to explain to her Aussie friends how the hell Trump became President. Her cousin was living in Greece in 2004 & was always questioned about how Bush came to be President again.

So cheers to the couple, cheers to the complete faith I have in my fellow voters not to embarrass those Americans living abroad and may they have a safe trip back.

alerts

yesterday & today I have alerted on 2 posts. There is a block to send in information about why I think it breaks the rules and then it states the alert will be sent to an administrator. It's been a couple of weeks since I've alerted & those alerts had all the reasons why a post can be alerted I would mark the appropriate reason and off it went to a jury.


What I alerted on yesterday still shows it as being on alert; it's in the thread of this OP"
