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.

Welcome to DU, zippythepinhead!

I forget where I read where some creative nitpicker determined, upon research, that trump lies once every three minutes, on average.

Welcome to DU, Aimee in OKC!

Yes indeed. The guy who lied - who tried to smear and de-legitimize President Obama will HIMSELF be de-legitimized. Only in his case, it won't be a lie. It'll be the truth, the whole truth, and nothing but the truth.

The contrast will be stark.

You did? You sure were reading my mind!

I will NOT accept OR stand by/with/for this so-called "President."

I'll be referring to him, for the next four years (or less, if he's impeached and REMOVED) as The Donald, or donald trump, or simply trump. I will not be calling him "President." For me, he's not President Anything. He lost the popular vote - by a MASSIVE amount. Not just a few thousand votes. Not even for the oft-cited 80,000 votes. It's pushing THREE MILLION. That's not small potatoes. THAT is a landslide. THERE'S the landslide. Right there.

He is NOT president. And ironically, this same guy who tried to smear the DULY-ELECTED and HONESTLY-ELECTED and LEGITIMATELY-ELECTED President, Barack Obama, and render him illegitimate - is now actually WEARING that Constitutional apostasy that applies DIRECTLY and PERSONALLY, all over his face like egg-splatter. WITH egg-splatter, to boot! No. I take that back. The boot's in his MOUTH.

We have a Russian puppet - wrap your mind around that: a RUSSIAN PUPPET - elected by a MINORITY of voters, about to get the keys to the Oval Office. The leader of one of two superpowers long identified as our ADVERSARY, VLADIMIR PUTIN, chose our next Commander-in-Chief for us. Just stop and think about that one. What do you suppose that's gonna do? How do you think that one's gonna end?

And aside from that, we have a fucking PIRATE headed into the White House. He's already established a CLEAR track-record of proof that he went for this job because of the money he could make from it. It was/is the ultimate brand. You're LITERALLY golden, with that. You're at a whole other level, with that. You have NO peers anywhere and only 44 other equals on earth and in earthly history. The opportunism, greed, wheeling-'n'-dealing, and FLAGRANT and MASSIVE in-yer-face conflict-of-interest.

This is a two-pronged attack, forcryingoutloud. From outside, and long - Putin/Russia - and from inside, by (supposedly) one of our own - the greediest, most narcissistic, most think-skinned, sociopathic, petty, juvenile, vengeful pissant I think the modern world has seen in decades. On the biggest stage in the world.

And it's stunning to see the denial out there. The absolute pig-headed refusal to see. To be outraged, at least. But, shit, even just TO SEE! Nobody wants to admit they were wrong. And nobody ADAMANTLY wants to admit they've been had. NOBODY. That's a really hard one to swallow. When you think you were right and you wanted so badly to be right. That's a hard one to face, much less accept. They won't accept responsibility for anything. From human causes of climate change onward, straight on to this now.

Deny it as they will, that doesn't change the truth, or the facts. Whether we like it or not, we have a Russian puppet poised to take over the White House next month. Elected by a minority of voters. Hand-picked by the sneaky and devious head of our sneakiest and most devious international superpower adversary. In other words, if you really wanna be brutally frank, elected by a minority of ONE.

God, or at least the Electoral College, help us!

And ABSOLUTELY no mandate. NO mandate. NONE.





Hey, America, one simple fact about the GOP: they DON'T want to help you.

They DO NOT want to help you. They do not think they should have to. Hey, screw that "my brother's keeper" crap or the Golden Rule or that bearded guy from long ago who talked about whatever you do to the least of these, you do to Him. It's not their job anyway.

Welcome to DU, tenorly!

Now THAT is an outstanding idea!

Bring back Keith Olbermann. We need his voice now, more than ever.

Welcome to DU, jknudsen!

I LOVE Joy Reid. She's the best thing on there! I'd love to see her replace either Chris Matthews or Chris Hayes. Matthews can go bye-bye. Chris Hayes should take over Andrea Mitchell's show - and she should get the royal heave-ho. But Joy Reid deserves, and has earned, a prime time Monday-through-Friday slot. She's THAT good.

Welcome to DU, Akacia!

I don't, either.

We should start thinking - AND DOING - like the CONS do. We're WAY too nice. Stupid. Naive. Pushovers.

And we should be pressing the "news" media (I use that term advisedly) to stay on trump like a dog on a pants leg. And lest they suddenly develop amnesia about any reportorial how-to's - because they all simply MUST go easy on trump and keep on giving him the benefit of the doubt long after he's proven he doesn't deserve it - they should be reminded: "Don't know how? Pretend it's HILLARY!"

I actually tweeted that awhile back. It got several likes and retweets.

Welcome to DU, JPPaverage!

THANK YOU! They won't care about what you want. You're right. HOWEVER - if they keep getting input like this, and keep getting input like this, and keep getting input like this, they'll be forced at least to acknowledge it.

Might be shrewd to call their Washington DC offices - AND their regional offices. So it doubles your efforts. You get a twofer. BOTH your complaints get logged separately by staffers from two separate offices. You increase the numbers in both places. And sometimes it's a lot easier to get through if you go local/regional instead of to DC.

THANKS, demmiblue!

This is exactly what I needed.

I guess imgur.com was updated within the last year, or something, because I couldn't get it to work as it used to. This solves the problem perfectly!
