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 Judith Miller being locked up for 12 weeks?

For not revealing a source?

These days? Hell, what's NOT demoralizing???

All those "good Germans" realized what atrocities had been committed in their name

and they were both horrified and ashamed. Wonder if we’ll ever see that kind of epiphany here?

Of course, if so remember my history, all those abominations were done in the dark. Not made public. That’s NOT what’s happened here.

See any of OUR version of “good Germans” EVER raise even so much as a whimper about THIS? And for God’s sake, we’ve seen it all over the news EVERY FREAKIN’ DAY! And for at least A YEAR now! The difference here is that this hasn’t been some dirty little secret. It’s all been done out in the open.

Are we making America great again yet?

I sure hope so!

I just turned to my husband after this DOJ Woman was shown being grilled

by the 9th Circuit, regarding children in custody at the border being neglected, poorly housed, sleeping on concrete floors, in the middle st deplorable conditions, denied their most simple basic needs (like toothbrushes and soap). And I said - gee, sure sounds like a concentration camp to me.

Hey, where’s the torture, ‘eh? Isn’t that about all that’s missing?

Oh, excuse me. Little kids alone, taken away from their parents... torture? Check.

Hey, America, THIS is ALL being done in YOUR name! AND with YOUR money! There’s YOUR tax dollars at work! YOU’RE paying for this!

Yep. We’re all paying for it, alright. We’re gonna be paying for this abomination in all the history books from this day forward, for all time.

Make America Great Again. Uh-huh.

Another great graphic. Or maybe "grate" graphic.

I was shouting at the radio while we were driving

“Cut his mic! Yank his mic! This is pointless! Cut him OFF, dammit!”


I wonder if Mulvaney was trying to send trump a signal not to get into this.

And as usual, nobody tells trump what to do.

Was it an actual coughing fit? Or was Mulvaney trying to signal something else to his boss?

I think it's the tail end of the OBAMA recovery. Those recoveries

recoveries have an up and a down. The up part never sustains forever. Soon enough it inevitably starts sliding back down, equalizing or moderating. Wha goes up must come down. It’s cyclical. I suspect that’s why he’s angling for war now. I think he knows he needs that poll boost that the wrong-wing “mighty Wurlitzer” will crank up to push public opinion to “stand by our president. We’re at war! We HAVE TO stand by OUR president!!!”

I suspect he or his advisors or Brad Parscale remember what happened to dubya. A war last time silenced the bush/cheney critics - at least for awhile. And George the Second saw his poll numbers go way up. It was after 9/11 and Man-oh-Man did that boost his numbers. Almost the whole nation wanted to go kick somebody’s ass internationally for what happened on September 11th. And dubya delivered. Bombing the crap out of Afghanistan and then beating the PR drums nonstop to spread it to Iraq. And then kept that war cranking as the clock ticked toward what he hoped would be his re-election. And it worked.

We got PLAYED. BIGTIME. And we have to hope we won’t get fooled again. Maybe the MAGAts will allow themselves to get fooled. But the rest of us better not. And always remember: there are MORE of US than there are of the MAGAts. That’s why his numbers will NEVER grow higher than the mid-40s. Because the majority is NOT with him.

I bet he’s betting that a war could change that.
