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.

Oh great. Donna Brazil. She who never fails to bring a feather duster to a gun fight.

Iím sure sheís a very nice person with long experience in politics. But as a reliable, ruthless, and take-no-prisoners political combatant...

And just as UUUUUUUGLY!!!

Yep. +1,000,000,000,000,000,000.

We HAVE TO vote him OUT. His base is gonna be super motivated. Heaven knows why, since he wants to take their health care away, and A LOT of them are older and with pre-existing conditions and on Medicare and dependent on those benefits.

Our Dems are smart to stay focused on health care and protecting access to affordable health care - most available because of the Affordable Care Act. It evidently hasnít occurred to trump that taking away that pre-existing condition coverage might not appeal to his base. He evidently doesnít realize how big a gift heís given the Dems for 2020.

If we DONíT take FULL advantage of that, then frankly we donít deserve to win.

The Indivisible movement isn't standing for it either.

Used to be a chapter in each Congressional district. Now there are several chapters in each district. We issue ďasksĒ for our reps, both Senate and House, and much of it right now involves demanding the Mueller investigations - AND all supporting documents- be released immediately. Also, demanding that both Mueller and Barr be summoned to the House committees to explain themselves. And when we meet with our reps, and/or their staffers, we personally deliver these asks right to their faces.

Actually, itís an easier ask for the House, since itís Democratic-controlled. For Senators the ask is more like ďpush your friends in the Senate (including GOPers) to get these two men in to testify and explain themselves. Because WE-THE-PEOPLE want answers AND WE-THE-PEOPLE PAID FOR THAT REPORT.Ē

I know this to be true because the Indivisible group I belong to teams up with a larger neighboring Indivisible group, and we coordinate on these asks. Then those asks get emailed out every week to all our members and friends, and the other groupís members, also. An ask for every weekday, including a suggested script. Plus a link to the background info we used if anybody wants more info, and so they can see itís a legitimate and informed ask.

And Iím on the team that writes them every week.

Well at least there's this!

GOOD one! Sure fits!


How cool is that?!

Thank you, denbot! Not that it'll do much good or cut through the avalanche of crap

people like that guy literally drink and bathe in, every day. But you fought the good fight on ALL our behalf!

Welcome to DU, WiseElder!

Yep. It certainly was infuriating to see a montage of all the big newspaper headlines that ALL said, in the BIG typeface, versions of "trump No Collusion..." They managed to get to the point about how trump was NOT EXONERATED, but there may be obstruction. That's all in the small print that few bother to read. It's the big bold blaring headline that counts.

It's SO important, if possible, to read down the whole story to get the whole truth. Sometimes there are big and seriously worthwhile nuggets to be found halfway down, or two-thirds of the way down, or even in the last paragraph or two.

Yes. We. Do.
