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.

Interesting point.

I'm hesitant, though. So much I know I left out.

But I'm a 60-year-old white woman who will NOT have the government in her bedroom or doctor's office - so everything goes through that filter. I apologized for the other demographics I shortchanged.

And I totally left out young people.

You want young people?
Stop making it harder for them to vote!
Reform the damn student loan mess!
Stop trying to fool them on health care.
Stop poisoning and pillaging the planet THEY have to continue trying to live on after you're gone!!!
Stop making their future damn near impossible.
And I could go on...

And how about their grandparents? A lot of 'em are still with you, unfortunately. You still manage to fool them.
But start grabbing their Social Security and Medicare, and we'll see.

They could give up their austerity crap, too. Face it GOP, your way DOESN'T work, and your ideas SUCK. And until you change THOSE, you're always gonna be sunk. Even when you cheat and try to rig the game.

Welcome to DU, Pitagoras!

Glad you're here! Some of us call it Pox Noise. Some of us call it Faux News. Some of us just simplify that and call it Shit. One syllable covers all!

Certainly not at the rate they're going!

And the answer is as plain as the noses on any of their faces. OPEN YOUR DAMN CLOSED MINDS!!!!

Hey you, GOP:
You want to get women?
Quit objecting to equal pay!
GET THE FUCK OUT of our gynecologists' offices AND our vaginas!
Change your attitude toward family planning and contraception!
Leave our health care ALONE!!!!
Quit trying to keep us from voting!
Give us child care and student loan breaks!
Start taking rape seriously.
Raise the minimum wage.
Stop stereotyping us!
I could go on...

You want blacks?
Quit trying to stop them from voting!!!!
Quit standing in the way of anything that helps them succeed!
Quit sneering at them as lazy moochers.
Stop trying to convince us (and, pathetically, yourselves) that racism ended with Rosa Parks.
GET RID of those damn fucking Confederate flags!!!!!!!!
Raise the minimum wage.
Stop stereotyping them!
I could go on...

You want Latinos?
Stop trying to keep them from voting!!!
Stop opposing and obstructing immigration reform!
Raise the minimum wage.
Stop making it harder for them to get ahead.
Stop stereotyping them!
I could go on...

Stop listening to limbaugh & company.
Turn OFF Pox Noise.
Stop forcing your version of God on the rest of us.
Stop forcing corporatism and your free market crap on the rest of us.
Stop pushing trickle-down on the rest of us - you've even lost the Pope now.
Stop pushing your climate change denial on the rest of us.
Stop pushing your Old Testament obsession and science denial on our schools.
Stop pushing your damn guns on everybody everywhere.
Stop giving it all to the rich and the war machinery.
Start making the rich pull more of their weight. If you had a 250-pound muscle-bound hulk and a 98-pound weakling and their car tipped over into a ditch, who would you expect would be more capable of hoisting the weight and tipping the car back? Mr. Muscles or the little weakling? Oh - I get it... you think the weakling ought to do the heavy lifting...
I could go on...

It seems simple to me. But when you're dealing with reactionary, proudly-ignorant, racist, sexist, bullying idiots...

Or it's the Bajoran lost city of B'hala?

Calling Captain Sisko...

Welcome to DU, Burf-_-!

Glad you're here! Certainly they're NOT bad things! And yes, more brilliance from Jon Stewart. Glad he's on OUR side!

No, unfortunately it won't. But I sure wish it would!

YES. Proud Californian here - this is what happens when republi-CONS don't get their way.

Financially we head into the black, our health exchanges are working just fine, unemployment dropping, bond rating rising, minimum wage gets an increase! We have a brilliant and compassionate governor and a state legislature dominated by Dems. Not enough republi-CONS in there to start causing trouble.

I feel like that asshole justin dart did - multi-millionaire industrialist who was part of asshole reagan's so-called "Kitchen Cabinet," the off-the-books group of wealthy corporate pals of ronnie's who advised him in the shadows, out of public view. justin dart once was quoted as saying (paraphrasing slightly) that we should only be concerned about saving about 100 acres of redwoods - "for the kids."

So I think it'd be a good idea to save about 100 republi-CONS. For the kids.

Welcome to DU, mdbl!

Good to have you with us! We have to respond with some back-smack against the "limousine liberals" - how 'bout Rapist-Loving republi-CONS? Or maybe Great 13th-Century Minds of Our Time? Anti-Christians? Modern-Day Pharisees? CON-Jobbers?

Welcome to DU, erronis!

Glad you're here! Yeah, there are enlightened, informed, and educated people everywhere. I just hope they vote. The dumb-shits certainly do. We HAVE TO reverse this nauseating, destructive, utterly Neanderthal trend.
