Am I proud of my daughter? [View all]

You are damn right I am proud of her!!!!!!!

My daughter is a single lady of a certain age, living in her place on Capitol Hill, working for one of those DC law firms that bills more per hour than I ever made in a month.

She is the nicest lady you could ever hope to meet and she's a DEMOCRAT through and through; raises money for the DNC, she's up to $2 million for Biden and Harris so far. But don't mess with her.

Because Republicans want to destroy Planned Parenthood, she and her radical fringe friends all go to a local PP clinic for gynecological services (and to mess with the demonstrators).

This morning she went to PP for her annual Pap smear. A young woman was in there, accompanied by another young woman, both of them appeared lost and distressed. They were seated next to my daughter, frantically making phone calls. The first one was there for an abortion and she could not afford it, even at PP basic price. After listening to the to young woman make a couple of phone calls trying to round up $500, my daughter located the clinic manager, told her to "put anything this young woman needs on my bill and here's my AMEX card."

I'm so proud I could bust!!!!!!
