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.

Kicking for this post, too.

Wonderful details to learn, Journeyman. Thanks for posting it!

That I will NEVER understand as long as I live, LisaM.

I know of an actor who spent quite a bit of time in the celebrity autograph convention circuit. He went all over the country. He once said that there's an ungodly amount of Hillary hatred out there in the so-called "heartland." He described it as virulent.

I do NOT get it. I do NOT understand it. I never will. What on earth has anybody found, in her or about her or by her, that's so damned objectionable? WHAT is it that's such a turn-off? Are they just that threatened by a woman of the kind of accomplishments she has? That's the only reason why I can guess would be the issue for many of the women voters who voted for trump when they could have (and, IMO, SHOULD have) supported her? I know that kind of mentality exists because I've found myself on the receiving end of it in much lesser way, too.

And/or if they hated her because she stood by her husband and for keeping her family/her marriage together during the whole Monica mess, what would they have done in her place? I bet every one of 'em woulda gone all Tammy Wynette even more than she did, proudly congratulating themselves throughout for doing so.

I don't get it, LisaM. It makes NO sense whatsoever. What the heck is she supposed to have done that earned her such utter ick?

I had read that the New York field office was full of Hillary haters.

Many individuals therein were reportedly big fans and avid consumers of the “Clinton Cash” book and all the nonsense it peddled.

Heres hoping!

Good one!

It shows he has a sense of humor. If it were me,

I think I’d feel a little bit rattled about it.

Just won the internet, Fullduplexxx!

I’ve GOT TO remember this the next time somebody yowls or whines that “guns don’t kill people, people kill people.” I usually throw in an immediate “...with guns!” retort to that one. I like yours better.

She should also never be allowed to own a gun again.

She proved she’s not a responsible owner. Not that she wouldn’t ever be able to acquire guns again though.

DAMN guns.

They are frequently also the same ones who loudly proclaim how God-fearing they are.

They’re frequently the same ones who shove their bibles in the public’s faces and carry on about how fervently they’re followers of Our Lord - when they totally avoid the actual teachings of Jesus. I bet precious few of them know Matthew 25, verses 35-45. That’s the one about “the least of these”, the whole “I was hungry and you fed Me, I was naked and you clothed Me...” thing.

And another +1000.

Those are worthy points, she. As I try to get beyond all that, myself, I keep on bumping up against those glaring truths of such deep-seated disrespect toward a woman who’s spent most of her life trying to help the most vulnerable.

I wish I could forget. I wish I’d never seen any of that ugly disgraceful stuff.
