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.

I've cried, off and on, all day.

Wouldn't that be sweet justice?!

Welcome to DU, DesmondFoster!

And I wonder if the link has been disabled already.

Welcome to DU, MadamPresident!

A LOT of stuff should have been released before the election.

Bingo!

NO. It may take getting in their face about it.

Because nobody does, on Pox Noise. Nobody does on hate radio. Only "mega-dittos" allowed. There are no consequences for their lousy attitudes and shitty priorities and staggering mean-spiritedness, arrogance, cruelty! They SNEER at empathy. Remember when dick cheney did? LAUGHED and SCOFFED and SNEERED at the idea of empathy. Like it signified something against one's manhood or some such shit. HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE, HORRIBLE excuses for human beings, they are.

I try to understand. I try to understand these people. I try every day. And it's damn hard. Damn near impossible, really.

I want one!

And they don't want to help people.

They don't want to help you. And they don't think they should have to, either. That's always for somebody else to do - and then be laughed at for being a "libtard" or a "Demoncrat". Selfishness and greed have been raised to the level of sacraments by the republiCONs, and CONservatives, everywhere. They're the IGMFU party. IGMFU = "I Got Mine, F-U." They're the "Sucks to be You" party. They're cold-hearted, cruel, thoughtless, selfish, greedy. The WORST.

And ironically, they'll also be the first ones to insist that they're more "Christian" than you, too. Which is a complete joke. They'll be first to wave the Bible in your face and declare you a stupid, faithless infidel. And they'll likely quote something from Leviticus to prove it. Oddly enough, NEVER have I heard from these people with all their references to the Bible - ANY quotes from the Beatitudes, ANY quotes from the parable of the rich young man, ANY quotes referencing "whatever you do to the least of these, you do to ME." They seem to like the Old Testament best, but they never cite the story about Cain and Abel, and God confronting Cain after Cain killed his brother. You NEVER hear any of that. Not EVER. I've made kind of a game of it - listening for references like these from the mouths and pulpits and TV shows and media empires. Not a one. Not a single one! Not EVER! They do manage to hide their Golden Calf statues, though...

These selfish, cold-hearted shit-heads NEED to be confronted.

And in a style like this one!

BRAVA, LaydeeBug!

They do it because they're lost in the Pox/limbaugh-&-clones bubble world where they've come to believe that theirs is the view everyone has, or should have. They need to be jolted back into reality. They need to have it shoved in their faces that THEY ARE WRONG!!! WRONG AS CAN BE!!! Heartless and very much UN-Christian. What if that was Christ, in the checkout line, paying with food stamps? You know, THAT Guy. The Dude Who's widely quoted as saying "whatever you do to the least of these, you do to Me."

And I have one other bit of personal testimony

although this occurrence didn't hit me quite as intimately.

I went to high school with this beautiful young woman who was in my class. She was brilliant, very quiet, and pretty much always kept to herself. I never understood why until I learned about her three brothers. Make that two brothers.

The three of them went to a shooting range on the outskirts of town, one day. A professional, regulation range, well-appointed, with all the safety accoutrements, trained guides and assistants and staff. All the right things you'd expect to see. But then one of them took aim and his bullet ricochet'd and struck one of his brothers. That brother was killed on the spot. Three went out for a fun day. Only two of them returned. The third came back in a box. My classmate and her family were never the same again.

That's just one more reason why I HATE guns. HATE 'em. Got nothing else but hate for guns. Sorry. When guns are in the picture, too much can go too far wrong.
