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.

Agreed.

And they seem to have taken a fair amount of pride in it, too.

Absolutely Awwwwwww!

John Lennon wrote a song about it.

It’s called “Woman Is the Nigger of the World.”

That’s the title.

Here are the lyrics:

The song never got much airplay, probably because of the shock value of its title. But the message was brutally clear.

Being female is the most powerful portal that allows me to “get” or even begin to understand the black experience, even while white.

BOOM!!!!!!!!

Time IS running out.

I saw a protester with a “WHAT ARE WE WAITING FOR?” poster at the recent impeachment rally. I may make one of those signs for myself, for the next one. On the back would be a version of one I saw in the UK protest, which was WICKED cool:
“KIDS IN CAGES HAVE HEARTBEATS TOO.”

YES!!!!!!

I could definitely go for that, too.

Ahh yes, the subservient and fawning Chuck Todd.

The “I just put Person A on and they make their point, and then I put Person B on, and they make their opposing point, and that’s that! I’ve done my job! It’s not my job to ask any probing questions or try to fact-check anything” guy.

Even at this late date, even after he occasionally does ask a sensible question now and then, if I were head of MSNBC, he’d be the first person whose job I’d give to somebody else.

I know how you feel, my friend.


Wonder who’d be first? Jim Acosta? The Asset does nurse his grievances, after all, and Acosta has already had his credentials yanked, briefly. This would be the next logical step, ‘eh?

No. It doesn't. Not too far-fetched at all.

Especially when it IS happening HERE.

Right NOW.

Color me surprised.

Doesn’t rehabilitate Kavanaugh but maybe it’s a start.

I’ve interviewed many an actor who’s said that when they got into costume for some role, it really changed them. And it transported them into that reality.

Do you suppose maybe when that unapologetic creep donned those robes, and stepped into those chambers, that it modified his thinking a little, too?
