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.

That's my governor! Good litmus test at least for me!

If Jerry Brown approves, it's gotta be good. You can have faith in that endorsement. Same for De Blasio. That Elizabeth Warren and Bernie Sanders are behind it is enough, right there, to prove its worth.

Conversely, I've learned that another shorthand test is - does the GOP hate it? Well then, that should tell you enough, right there, to prove it's worth supporting. Sometimes that's really all you need to know. GOP opposes it? Then it's well worth getting behind!

I swear, Cha, that poor man needs this, too. As much as they need what he did for them tonight.

I feel so bad for President Obama. The astounding piles of shit he's had to wade through to get anything done for ANYBODY in America who isn't already well-heeled and well-situated and in need of NO help whatsoever because they're already doing just fine for themselves. The shit they've thrown at him. The abuse he's had to take. The fuckers and idiots and bastards and utter traitors he's had to tolerate and try to work through, in spite of. Man, if anybody's going straight up to Heaven when they die, I think it'll be him. The suffering and persecution he's endured by some of the lowest low-life assholes and cretins and human shit-bags on the planet - he's already done enough Purgatory time here on earth to provide free passes Upstairs to 100-dozen sinners. Or, let's get biblical - "70 times seven."

So glad he's getting this validation and gratitude and all this goodness flowing back to him from the Latino and compassionate-human-being community! Shit - during this past election season, everyone who dumped on him from the bad guys to all those backstabbers in his own camp who turned on him - you couldn't count that high! It just infuriated me and made me feel deeply ashamed. SHAME ON THEM ALL!!!!! HE'S gonna go to Heaven when he dies. The First Lady, too, because you know she's suffered right along with him and yet she too has shown such grace and class. As for the rest of 'em, I dunno... I find that I'm feeling almost glad that the Dems - who turned their backs on him or denounced him or played up how they disagreed with him or didn't support him - lost.

Interesting thought I just had, too, Cha. I'm wondering if this nonstop persecution machine - as a matter of fact maybe we oughta start calling it "The Professional Persecution Machine" - might not have an unanticipated backspin. What if it starts turning President Obama into a sympathetic character, as it begins to occur to more Americans that this is a good man being, well, PERSECUTED. I mean, Enough Already!! Get off his back and stop trying to muck up the works! Stop picking on the guy - he's trying to help people and help them make their lives better!!! Perhaps it soon becomes clear (and sinks in) that the GOP is just a big bunch of babies. Spoiled sports. Malcontents. Snot-nosed brats. Adult-size FIVE-year-olds. Tantrum throwing adult-size five-year-olds at that. My Millennial-age son quipped at random the other day, with eyeballs rolling - "so what are they gonna do, impeach the guy? It's like that's all they do. Impeach Democratic presidents."

BINGO! Man, if THAT starts getting around, the CONS are sunk. They're fucked. The wrong demographic may be recognizing what selfish, racist, sore-loserman, tiresome, petulant piss-ants they are. They'll be on the other side of the White House fence for a generation or more. Not that we can take that for granted, though!!!

I love the face on that young woman at the right. Such a sweet little face.

You can see the yearning in her face. And it looks as though she finally dares to allow herself to hope. Gets me choked up, frankly.

Just plain ol' LOVE THIS, Cha!

The looks on their faces. They've waited so long. Yearned for help for so long. Thank you, Mr. President! You did good.

And I will follow you and kick it yet AGAIN!



Hmmm.... that was my immediate reaction - wonder if he's working out some deal.

You resign, we won't indict. ? He's a police officer around whom they've circled the wagons and tried very hard to protect. They've tried very hard to hide him, cover for him, manipulate all the proceedings - apparently he was allowed to see all the statements and evidence and EVERYTHING before ever having to submit his own report, so who knows how well and how thoroughly he was able to strategically tailor his responses to grand jury questioning in order to cover his ass?

In any event, he has NO business returning to that police force and out onto the streets of Ferguson again, EVER. Talk about stirring up bad juju in the community! That police chief - "if he's acquitted he'll be back on duty" - is utterly mental! Darren Wilson has no business in ANY police or law enforcement position, and he certainly shouldn't be allowed to take any other job that allows him access to firearms! Armed guards, whatever. God I hope not!!!!

Hey sueh - did you see some of the comments in the link? PRICELESS!!!

I’ve lost count, ummm, President Obama, 100, GOP, ummmm, O! The Democrats need to take a good hard look at what Obama just did! This is a man that knows how to win, and have the GOP gasping for air! This is how you kick GOP A$$! Had they embraced Obama during their campaign, we’d have won about 6 gubernatorial seats and picked up about 3 Senate seats. The GOP are about to regret their victory.

They can cry me a river and build me a bridge, they had more than enough time to do something and didn’t
Barack “Who told you I was gonna be a lame duck president” Obama – I like it…

Please proceed, Mr. President!

Do nothing and look stupid.
Do something and look dumber
Poor boehner

“our main goal is to make the prez, a one term.”…
we will outreach to hispanics- 2012
i hope the tbillys go nuts.
the real enemy of the usa is the gop/tp.

I love it when the president stomps on the republicans – again.

Chickens shit Democrats, please take notes. THIS is how you deal with Republicans.

Nice Obama nut cracker just in time for holidays.

And my own personal favorite from someone calling herself Cheryl: How sweet it is. How well are the GOP hung?

Instead, it becomes a weapon FOR Democrats!

OUCH!!!!!!!! Um... is it wrong that I'm smiling?

From DUer Ykcutnek a little bit ago:

Put this heartwarming moment in your head before the hate turns up to 11 tomorrow

Ed O'Keefe @edatpost

Group outside White House chanting: "Obama. Amigo. El Pueblo esta contigo." Translation: "Obama. Friend. The public is with you."



SUCK ON THIS, GOP. As Illinois Congressman Luis Gutierrez said on MSNBC - "first of all, stop whining and crying..."

THAT is how you deal with this jackass mob. Take the lead and put them in their place. WE have the moral high ground here. They do not.
