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.

Yeah, asshole. WHO WAS IT who stood by you in time of need?

WHO WAS IT who ordered that everyone in his administration who was in ANY position to help MUST take his calls - OR return those calls within 15 minutes?

AND WHO WAS IT who turned his back on you and does the IGMFU (I Got Mine, F-U) on you in your state's time of need? WHO WAS IT who put you on ignore?


Wonder if he will or if he'll still be a "good little republi-CON"? I don't care how cool and loveable and reasonable he seems to be - now. I don't trust him as far as I can throw my house.

Well, that's one way to look at it.

I'm gonna be 60 this year. So is my best friend. I've decided that it must mean we are just EXCRUCIATINGLY FASHIONABLE!

After all - what else could the trendy "Miss 60" clothing line possibly mean?

I AM "Miss 60"!!!

"Lucky Sperm Club." I look at him on TV and ask out loud - "Shaving yet, kid?"

He would be a nobody if his last name weren't Russert. How does he know to give analysis and opinion about ANYTHING???? He hasn't put in any time yet! Dues? What dues? Nobody said I had to pay any dues!

And he STILL hasn't!

Well I don't care. One of 'em better get over it and start standing up.

Who do they work for, after all, grover norquist? They need to be reminded of the joke they made out of their so-called party slogan during the 2008 election (aka the FIRST time Barack Obama cleaned their clocks). That slogan was "Country FIRST!" Which is total bullshit if you look at what they do, rather than what they just say. Talk is cheap. Especially theirs.

And I do wonder what might happen if one of 'em did stand up. And convinced one of his/her friends to join in. And they both convinced some more of their friends to stand up. Do they not understand what this kind of agenda-worshipping has done to their brand?

One other thing we need to be reminding EVERYONE about, including the republi-CONS who need to be disabused of their cockamamie ideas, that THIS IS A CENTER-LEFT COUNTRY. NOT center-"right". No center-"right" country votes to legalize pot, approve or reinforce marriage equality, raise taxes to fund education, get rid of the loudest, most loutish, most high-profile teabagger loudmouths in the House of Reps, OR keep the black guy in the BIG chair behind the desk in the Oval Office for another four years. We need to talk that one up. A LOT. This is NOT a center-"right" country. We're forward-thinkers, which means we're quite nicely progressive.

Kinda goes without saying - the Democratic Party won't do its own heavy lifting.

They've been collectively asleep at the switch for FAR too long. I hope to GOD that's changed. Elections have consequences - and nobody should recognize OR exploit that MORE than our Dems, since the results went so nicely our way in November. So now we're RID of lieberman, thank goodness! And we need to pile on our Dems and keep reminding them who they REALLY work for, and what kind of momentum they're supposed to be using and making the most of.
