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, Crash2Parties!

Glad you're here! Tons of interesting reading here on DU. I learn something every day I come here. My husband the computer programmer told me about Ada, and I knew about Hedy Lamarr. Beauty AND brains - sort of an incomprehensible combination to far too many, unfortunately.

ROFL! I knew somebody'd throw that in!

Although I would have been satisfied with a big, fat, sloppy, oozy, ugly one, too.

The GOP doesn't deserve beautiful. At least not til they reform their anti-social money-grubbing short-sighted behavior and their policies, that is.

My heart STILL belongs to "hollerin' Howard"!

Still LOVE him! Still believe he shoulda won in 2004. He'd have been a terrific president.

And also - consider the source. The "Daily Caller" is little tucker carlson's latest attempt to be relevant (and/or find a job) in today's media.

I have wondered that - most of my life. The whole nauseating Woman-As-Property thing.

WHY???? Why are we some how less? Why are we objectified, demeaned, patronized, minimized, overlooked, snickered at, and first in line to have rights denied? WHY????????? WHY are we first-to-be-held-back? First to be talked over? First to be interrupted. First to be shoved aside. First to be paid less. First to be passed over. First to be ghettoized in "mommy tracks" and other lesser-than-thou categories? I find that whole tradition rather offensive. Always did. So who was it long ago who decided the men get to speak first, walk ahead first, get chosen first, get preferred first, get the benefits and the privileges first? Why did it have to be "all MEN are created equal?" And what about us women? What are we? Chopped liver? Invisibles? Nonessentials? Back-of-the-bus'ers? Lesser-thans? Inferiors?

Inferiors indeed! The "weaker sex" indeed! I defy ANY man, here, there, or ANYWHERE to withstand the rigors of pregnancy and childbirth. YOU try squeezing that big thing outta that little tube through YOUR pelvic bone structure, 'eh? I personally think women are entitled to be called "the stronger sex" - for that reason alone.

I remember being laid off and told - "well, hey, at least YOU have a husband, so..." And I had to break the news to this clown - "yeah, that's true. But he isn't working at the moment. I'm the only one bringing home a pay check. Well - at least I WAS. Until TODAY."

And you know you've got 'em when they have no comeback. They have nothing but a funny look on their face, busily wracking what there is of their "brains" looking for some template or cheat-sheet or Cliffs Notes or something so they can come back with a cute and semi-relevant response that will somehow excuse them and nullify the thoughtless dumb-ass lunk-head insult they just tossed your way.

Kitty Stinkeye! And the seal photobomb!

Sounds like a new summer kiddie movie! YAY!!!

My comment usually is - "guns don't kill people? People kill people?" Well, yes. People kill people.

WITH GUNS.

Hmmm... holding his gun next to his dick (or where his dick should be?)...

Utterly revolting. Yeah, you sure are some big hot ferocious More-Rambo-Than-Thou macho man, there, pal.

Mongo impressed... NOT!!!!!

No kidding. What happened to "majority rule"?

Why are we in the majority still being pushed around and bullied by a loud, raucous, anarchic minority? There are MORE of us than there are of them. Why are we always bending to THEIR will and accommodating THEIR demands and compromising with them? Shouldn't it be the other way around? Where THEY, the minority, have to defer to the MAJORITY OF US?????

Shit - I wish we had this kind of momentum defending a woman's right to choose.

THAT is under constant assault! And it always feels like we're losing.
