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.

Seems to me the definition applies to "Pastor" hagee. Seems to me, after going to 14 years of Catholic school and being a believer all my life, that one is not supposed to use one's religion to preach hate and divisiveness. Using God and His Son, the Prince of Peace, to foment hatred and bitterness and misunderstanding. God's message, transmitted through His Son, at least as I have been taught it and always tried to understand it, was about love and inclusiveness. ALL are invited. ALL are welcome. ALL are loved. ALL are saved. Doesn't matter who they are, where they came from, what they look like, or what color or persuasion they are. Jesus wasn't crucified to win the salvation of a narrow sect of people. His message was for ALL. EVERYBODY. And yeah, even the fucking money-changers. He hung out with the outcasts. He preferred the poor and the commoners. He broke bread with the sinners. THAT is the prime religious belief or principle behind ALL of His work and His teachings. And that is exactly what "Pastor" hagee shits upon every time he gets up on his high horse and pontificates with his toxic bile and venom and hatred. He's NO representative of or self-anointed spokesman for Our Lord and Savior.

I'm with you, cynatnite. hagee is the one who should leave. HE should take his bullshit and bitterness and hatred and mean-spiritedness and move to Somalia or some such place. Especially if he never served!!!!

Still good to hear. Still good.

And it's a good reminder. Not everybody is worshipping your ass, ryan.

That's fantastic!!!!

Good news! Finally insured!!! And it took him only half an hour?

Terrific!!! Thanks for letting us know, stlsaxman! That's just wonderful!!! One less worry weighing down on his shoulders now!

Me too. He's mighty refreshing after Benny the Rat, that's for sure!!!

And anybody who pisses off the GOP and f(r)iends is okay by me!

The guy on the left reminds me of Osama bin Laden.

With just as much religious fanaticism and just as much "heart." Just a whole lotta ugly - both physical and moral.

Our dog, Goldie, has four cats to mother. And she does a great job!

We got her from the local shelter after she'd been brought in off the street, she'd been pregnant, no idea what happened to the pups, but she was bleeding, starving, and her teets were hanging down. You could see every bone in her spine, every rib. Horrible. She was so weak! And she was scared and shell-shocked and probably had a case of canine postpartum depression, if such there be (wouldn't surprise me!). We brought her home and she took to the two cats we had as though they were surrogate kittens. WUNNNNNNNNderful!!! And when we brought the two kittens home a year later (litter mates, take 'em both - genuinely FABULOUS idea that we will do again when the opportunity arises!!!!) Goldie took to them also. Now one of them bosses her around all the time. Goldie is a shepherd mix - we usually say "shepherd something" - and she's just wonderful to those kitties!

Aha! I was afraid of that.

So he's the son of a Trotskyite, 'eh? Pretty funny!!! Wonder how many others in the wrong-wing know that?

That's a good way to look at it.

We just had the Winter Solstice, after all. Now the days start getting longer, bit by bit!

Well, tough shit on them. "Roots" should be rerun. And soon.

America needs a reality check rather badly at the moment. If the low-information voters are hearing little but "blacks were HAPPY during slavery! I never met one who complained! They loved it!" then they'll start believing it.

Awww... cute doggies!

And they sure find their way to those nice comfy new beds, don't they? We got our dog, Goldie, a big round cushy thing at Costco. She will hardly budge out of it.
