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.

And I will not, and do not, buy the argument that it will divide the country.

Madame Speaker, your actions on this one drive me to the question - um, what country have you been living in, in the last decade or so? Have you not seen and/or taken note of how divided we ALREADY ARE????? Hell, we’re already in a philosophical Civil War. We’ve been in one since some in this country woke up one day in late January 2009, when it finally hit them full-on in the face that there was a black guy in the Oval Office and he wasn’t the janitor.

Unfortunately that’s the new reality ALREADY.

ALREADY!!!

Impeaching this lawless lying lawless cheating lawless tyrannical lawless dictator-wannabe may not make that condition any better or any worse. But in later years, I assume you would rather stand on a record of having upheld THE LAW, and that you stood up for preserving, protecting, and defending the Constitution of the United States.





Or wouldn’t you?

Because THAT’S what it’s gonna boil down to. Upholding the law, or hiding behind political expediency.

Which will it be, Madame Speaker???

And one more thing: how many Democratic and independent votes do you stand to lose because of a failure to stand on America’s most basic bedrock principles - that we DON’T have a king, and that NO ONE is above the law?

Nope.

Present and accounted for!

And furthermore, I’m NOT into any of this Avenger stuff, or whatever the latest contrived “superhero” type is. OR a lot of reckless car chases. Or a whole lot of gratuitous shooting and outrageous guns ‘n’ ammo and big-ass over-inflated musculature and gnarly-looking hairy hormonally-expanded or half-metal (usually male) mutants. Or a lot of explosions and fight scenes and wholesale destruction and other special effects. NO!!!

So fucking tiresome!!!

Shit, why don’t they just arm a bunch of enlarged penises and send ‘em into fire ‘n’ brimstone “battle”? Or have a movie featuring a hero who actually has big-ass guns popping out of his skin? How far will they push it?

Just fucking TIRESOME! I look at the ads for the new movies. Yawn. “Nope.” “No, not that one.” “Crap. Are they kidding?” “Screw that!” “Oh for Pete’s sake...” (which quickly turns into “oh for Fuck’s sake!”). Leafing through the movie section of ANY Sunday paper, that’s what it is, for me. Or it’s all this animation stuff that - when that’s all there is, over and over and over and over and over and more of the same over and over and over...

Discouraging. There’s virtually nothing worth going to see. Maybe because now is the front porch to “summer blockbuster” season.

I’d rather settle down with a good book. Or the Mueller report.

I like it too.

She’s no bitch, of course. But she FUCKING WARNED US ALL. Regardless who calls her what. She was right. AGAIN.

And let’s none of us forget - she got more votes. SHE win this thing. He was able to steal it because he games the system (as he always does) and cheated. With the help of a HOSTILE FOREIGN POWER.

Impeach, my lady. Don't rule out impeachment, Madame Speaker.

The lawlessness of this so-called (and flagrantly illegitimate - ‘cause he CHEATED) “pResident” is out in the open.

This is out in the open. IN PLAIN SIGHT. He is OPENLY DEFYING THE LAW. Yes, I’m SHOUTING! Is it okay with you to have a “pResident” who openly DEFIES THE LAW, America? How ‘bout it, America. Is that OKAY with you?????

Well well well. Stinks up the joint too badly even for you, Peggy Noonan.

I used to think of her as such a shameless apologist for Ronald Reagan that I came to regard her as “Ronnie’s Monica” (without the sexy parts). She did everything but slobber all over him.

Yeah, I'm thinking about that, too.

Joe Biden’s “likeables” are probably higher than anybody else’s.

Lots of our candidates are appealing and congenial and easy to like. But there’s this intangible about Biden that looks to be pretty doggone ferocious. There’s a lot of the Everyman thing about him.

There’s a strong sense of The Common Man about him.

There’s an air of approachability and genuine warmth about him - like the fun uncle or jolly grandpa you actually looked forward to seeing every Thanksgiving and Christmas.

And authenticity. This is a guy who is not known for lying. Occasional buffoonery but very mild compared to what we’ve come to expect from our so-called “Lyin’ King” who’s currently contaminating our White House.

I STILL suspect that he'll make a run for it under cover of darkness.

If the heat gets too hot, he’ll try to escape, in some unmarked chopper from behind the White House at 3am when he thinks the past is clear. Or maybe in some unmarked limo that disappears silently into the night. Won’t be “the Beast” - which is the big bulletproof presidential limo with the presidential seal on both sides.

He’ll do anything to avoid having to face the music. I’m thinking setting up shop in the Crimea. Where did I read it - ? That there’d been discussions that involved a gift of land in the Crimea to trump from his pal Putin to sweeten the deal in exchange for getting rid of the sanctions. Ideal for building a well-guarded and ultra-lavish family compound FAR FAR away from prying eyes.

That damn wagging finger.

Put it AWAY, Bernie!

A worthy question. VERY worthy.

I actually like the implied "American flag" imbedded in the logo. The three red stripes are

evocative.

And it's short 'n' sweet. The guy everybody refers to by his first name. America is on first-name basis with Joe Biden.

One thing that strikes me right away - he would be an UNSURPASSED "Comforter-in-Chief," which is a big part of what a President of the United States is called upon to be. President Obama was pretty doggone magnificent in that role. The Asset, on the other hand, is abysmal.
