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.

It's hard not to think that what really sent him to the hospital is a broken heart.

They were together for so long, close as can be, deeply devoted to each other. I hope he recovers, but I can't help wondering if he'll be gone soon, too. To be back with her again.

Welcome to DU, extvbroadcaster!

Sadly, your description of that "both sides! Both sides!" baloney is spot-on. I swear I almost expect members of the Flat Earth Society to gain invitations to join the panels of talking heads next time we have a NASA mission. RIDICULOUS!

It tore me up. The pile-on against Hillary was almost obscene as well. "...but her emails..." over and over and over and over and over. And it all turned out to be a whole lot of nothing. Meanwhile trump was consistently portrayed as some harmless buffoon to be laughed at and not taken seriously enough to bother digging into his background the way they did to both Clintons. All she ever did was try to be a dedicated and effective public servant. And look at the thanks she got. I half expect that at her funeral, the same hypocritical jackals who couldn't wait to find fault with her every hair out of place will intone, somberly, about what an amazing and globally admired historical figure she was. And they'll all insist they admired her too - and always had. I've never been able to watch Andrea Mitchell the way I once did - back when I believed her work was respectable.

And it's not just that.

Every time I hear Chris Matthews make some remark about how we all were against the Iraq War - ESPECIALLY him, I can't forget his shameless drooling over dubya's stuffed flight-suit prance around that aircraft carrier on "Mission Accomplished" Day: "we're all neocons now!"

Understood and absolutely NO offense taken.

We joke about it a lot. I get through it by saying lots of Our Fathers and Hail Marys on every takeoff and every landing.

I understand the science, and my wonky husband has explained it in many ways. I understand the statistics. I get it. And I still will fly whenever it's needed. But it's still challenging as all-get-out.

Exactly! Just pose the rhetorical question - "what if a Democratic president was doing this stuff?

How would you be responding if it was a President Hillary Clinton doing this stuff?

How would you be reacting if President Obama had done this stuff?

Indeed. One of the best, and so simple. Eight words.

Mrs. unblock and I will be spread out on blankets on the floor.

DO NOT jest with her about that. I'm not necessarily terrified but I'm uncomfortable flying. It's deeply unsettling to me. I take no comfort in knowing the ground is that far down below me with nothing but air in between. And yes I understand the science of it. Even so, I do it out of necessity rather than for pleasure. Flying commercially is the one and only time I can countenance heavy drinking (on MY part, that is).

That's the question that needs to be asked ROUTINELY.

When does this asshole NOT lie?

He lies like the rest of us breathe. In 'n' out, dozens of times a minute, every minute of the day, every day of the week, every week in the year, and every year he's drawn breath on this planet.

Remember that GREAT quote by Michael Avenatti:

“Those who have nothing to hide - hide nothing.”


Yay!!!!! Happy news!

Mighty cute happy news, at that!
