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.

Sounds like it's going to be a bumpy night!


Yep. Mine too.

I LOVE this place!

It’s been my refuge and shelter-from-the-storm since early bush/cheney.

I went searching for someplace-anyplace to commiserate and find some sense of solidarity with others as upset as I was about Gore’s being robbed of the Presidency. Discovered a site called “Resident Bush”. (“AHA! Somebody else who agrees with me that Bush didn’t win legitimately!”)

And I glanced at the left-hand margin where other sites were listed (“if you like this, you may also like these”). I noticed something called “Democratic Underground” and clicked over into it to take a look.

And I’ve never looked back!

You'd expect corporations could/would think that far ahead.

Doesn't matter HOW low your corporate taxes are - if all the bridges are washed out and your employees are screwed and can't get to work, and there are no detours that don't crowd up and take four hours one way, and ...

With all their money and manpower and access to the greatest minds and entire divisions given over to planning and anticipating for the future and all that - you'd expect corporations to have a finger on this pulse point already.

And they don't. Short-term profits are all they care about anymore. Seems like NOBODY thinks longterm... or consequences... or ramifications... and certainly not what works for the greater good beyond the immediate confines of the corporation. Only their own stockholders matter.

Yep. The yacht as well as the dingy.

MAYBE you survive on a rubber raft, assuming a big floating chunk of debris doesn't poke a big hole in it and sink the damn thing.

Well, maybe. We can certainly hope for that before these Dem assholes run out of time.

It makes me think of that cautionary tale about the stubborn guy on his roof as the floodwaters rise. “Oh God, save me! Save me, oh God!” he prays.
Boat comes by. “Hey mister! Climb aboard! Let’s get outta here!”
Man: “No! God will save me! Save me, oh God!”
Floodwaters keep rising. Now they’re not only at roof-level, he’s ankle-deep up there.
Another boat comes by. “Hey, you! The flood’s rising more! We gotta evacuate! Get in!”
Man: “NO! God will save me! Save me, oh God!”
As the floodwaters rise up to his waist, here comes a rescue chopper, on one last look before evacuating, themselves. “Hey, mister! We’re lowering a rope! Grab it and let’s get outta here!”
Man: again, “NO! God will save me! Save me, oh God!”
The rising water level soon is carrying him away and he drowns. Gets up to the Pearly Gates and realizes he’s DEAD. “Oh God! I believed in You! Why didn’t You save me?!?”
And God said “what? Are you kidding? I sent you two boats and a helicopter!”


Ooooooooooooooohhh YEEEEEEEEEEAAAAHHH!!!


That’s an oldie but a goodie. An oldie but a VERY GOOD goodie!
