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.

Reenacting your coronation, my liege. We have photos!

Yep. She's thoroughly compromised now.

She’ll always have that cheap “trump gold tone” tarnish on her reputation. You walked into the chipper shredder, girlfriend. Voluntarily. Getting paid for it, too, I’m sure. And that high-profile exposure and purported White House credential on your resume.

And you are ruined, girlfriend. Fucked. Destroyed. You climbed into bed with him. And he fucked you. Badly. You’ll carry that blot on your previously good name and formerly sterling reputation for the rest of your life. All your pathetic mewling and humiliating excuse-making and tap-dancing (a former coworker of mine used to call it “dick-dancing”) and ridiculous rationalization as you flail so pitifully trying to happy-talk around what your “boss-from-Hell” just verbally mangled and colossally screwed up - and what did it gain you?

You’re screwed, too. And so is your reputation. That’s what it gained you. A whole lot of NOTHING.

Good ones!

So he's a hijacker now, too? Thief-in-Law? Sounds more like Thief-OUTLAW to me.

Bastard! We-the-People PAID FOR THAT! And you shortstop it so you can smash ‘n’ grab for your own personal profit! FUCK YOU Jared!!!

You don’t already have enough money? You have to steal more from American taxpayers? Schmuck!

We have a running joke at our house.

When the time comes one of us inevitably hollers “roll the video!”

And the video clip comes on and it inevitably shows what he really said and who he said it to. And it’s never what he claims it is.

“Roll the video!”

We've got a new ask about that this week.

“Tell Mitch McConnell What He Can Do With His “Blue State Bailouts”.

Kicking this for later.


Oh MY that stings.

But the question it poses is one that MUST be asked.

I hope we'll start hearing and reading lots more messaging like that.

Here's one of my new fave-raves:

Boston Globe (Opinion):
Say it loud, say it clear: Donald Trump needs to resign over his handling of the coronavirus
By Michael A. Cohen Globe Columnist,Updated April 25, 2020, 5:00 a.m.

The United States has just over 4 percent of the world’s population, but had about one-third of all global coronavirus cases and one-quarter of the fatalities, as of Friday.
This is a catastrophic failure that can be laid largely at the feet of President Trump. Editorial boards and politicians — both Democratic and Republican — should be calling on him to resign immediately.

It’s not just the catalog of screw-ups that led us to this point — the playing down of the threat, the lack of testing, the spread of misinformation and lies, and the government-wide inattention to the issue. It’s that Trump represents an ongoing danger to the health and well-being of the American people.

Consider, for example, the strange case of hydroxychloroquine, the anti-malarial drug that Trump began publicly touting several weeks ago as a potential treatment for the coronavirus. “What do you have to lose?” the president asked, about a drug that had not been approved by the FDA for that purpose. It turns out the answer is “your life.”
