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.

There are so many good names for the CONS.

I like Greedy Old Pirates too. As well as all of the selections you listed, OAITW r.2.0! One of my favorites is the Grab Our Pensions Party.

I took one look at him in 2016 and knew instinctively why trump picked him as a running mate.

There's ONE thing that strikes you immediately (which is all donald is interested in, anyway - the quick hit). The first time I saw him in that context the thought that exploded in my mind was "THAT is the WHITEST white guy I have EVER seen!" I would bet that deep-down, that's what trump thought, too. And realized that he could use a guy like Albino man, who was gonna send a visual cue to all his racist fans who were flocking to his rallies. He knew they were fed up with having to live with the idea of a black guy in the Oval Office who wasn't the janitor. He knew that's all they cared about. He understood the deep, visceral weakness and the silent not quite-buried prejudice - that nobody leaning toward that side of the aisle wanted to say out loud but still felt deeply on the inside.

His own son said so. Eric bragged about all the Russian money that was coming into trump family

pockets and bank accounts.

They've been at this for a long time.

After daddy sought bankruptcy protection for, I believe, the sixth time, no American banks wanted to take a risk on him anymore. So he went to Russia. And for awhile he could function under the radar because he was a private citizen and Manhattan gadabout and media playtoy. And nobody cared.

He was just that crazy New Yorker with the big mouth and bigger ego who was an amusing camera-hogging attention whore, a clown in an expensive business suit, who'd say anything and do anything to get more attention and tabloid headlines. He was someone whose marriages, divorces, hotels, and high-life you laughed at. He was the human version of candy you shouldn't eat before dinner or because it'd rot your teeth and/or make you fat, but you liked eating it anyway, even while you knew there was no nutritional value whatsoever. A cheap thrill. Empty calories. Just like the donald.

I'm certainly with you on that, mountain grammy.

Just like Al Franken.

No kidding. That's a good one, smirkymonkey!

Mike DENSE. Sure describes him.

That is Hilarious!
