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, I hate liars!

Good to have you with us! GREAT point you make here. Let's remember what the bad guys perpetrated that nobody seemed to care about. Let's remember. Hillary, say what you will about her, but she is in NO way as bad as the alternative. And nothing she's ever done could possibly be as bad as the bad guys already have (and somehow got away with).

I've got a new nickname for him.

He claims he was "The Decider."

I say he's "The Destabilizer." I say a lot more than that, but I'll keep it relatively clean and without swear words, at least for the moment.

Sure sums up my opinion at the moment.

I hate it. I am hugely offended by the whole sordid display today.

We boycotted it at casa de calimary. Watched the Weather Channel instead. Much more meaningful and relevant.

Welcome to DU, Joe Johns!

Glad you're here! This guy scares the crap out of me. And that he has such a large and prominent platform to pull this shit scares me even more.

WE could use that money HERE.

He slaps us in the face and sticks it to our President? And we still shower money on him? Hmmmm... starting to think otherwise about this, I'm afraid.

Fuck him. I don't take orders from bibi netanyahu. I don't acknowledge any authority he may or

may not purportedly think he might have over me. For me, the answer to that one is "Absolutely NONE Whatsoever!"

And to grandstand before a joint session of Congress in what's effectively a political stunt to boost his own selfish chances back home, after having stuck a shiv in President Obama's back (ANOTHER one, frankly, since he had nothing good to say about our incumbent President during the 2012 election season) and pulled a sneaky-ass maneuver violating protocol without consulting the White House or going through proper channels to do this sort of thing. ASSHOLE. I hope he's voted out. I hope this backfires so egregiously that it leaves the GOP permanently hobbled.

Could it be, maybe, that cutting back on the government, and then cutting back some more

on the government, could be at least partly to blame? If we're trying to shrink government down so small we can drown it in a bathtub, then maybe we need to stop doing that so relentlessly? It costs money to get new computers and up-to-date equipment, AND to STAY up-to-date with all the technology that seems to update itself every minute on the minute...

That does take funding. It takes funding for equipment and funding to hire people to do this, run this, install this, troubleshoot this, and patrol this - helping the State Dept people learn it and work with it without fucking up too much, and keep it updated - AS WELL AS the increasingly critical monitoring of it for security purposes and protect it from hackers.

That takes money.

Has me on edge, too, herding cats.

I know just what you mean! And frankly, considering the calculating manipulations that we have seen netanyahu pull, sticking that nice shiv into President Obama's back, him and his ambassador BOTH sneaking around behind our President's back with boner and pulling this sneaky-ass manipulative posturing just for a photo-op to brag about back home. I wouldn't be surprised, if he's THAT sneaky, that he doesn't have plenty of other ways to fund his campaigns. I wouldn't expect a guy like this to play fair and follow rules, any more than I'd expect the GOP to play fair and follow rules.

Welcome to DU, Backwoodsrider!

Glad you're here! It'd be neat to be able to "like" individual posts. But I suppose that's what the reply mode is for. Heck if I know. I'm a bigger Luddite than Hillary is!
