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.

Don't WE have rights, too???? The right NOT to be harassed by the gunners and their apparent obsession with pushing guns on every household, every neighborhood, every commercial district, every street, every store, every church, everywhere!

I think WE have rights, TOO: to be FREE of this, to be liberated from this constant harassment and threat to our safety!!! The right to know and discuss and study what we're up against - FREELY. Okay? This starts impinging on the FIRST Amendment right to free speech and free assembly. And seems to me the FIRST Amendment comes FIRST - for a REASON.

Besides, does the Second Amendment not clearly stipulate a "WELL-REGULATED militia"? REGULATIONS on the gunners - they can't just have whatever-the-fuck they want. Otherwise the rest of us are held hostage by a bunch of paranoiacs among our own citizenry. It's domestic terrorism, plain and simple. And I, for one, am sick and tired of that!!!

Actually, he IS. We ALL are - if we agree about this UBER-excessive gun violence problem.

And I do. So I join him. You have a right to your opinion - BUT SO DO WE!!!!! What about OUR rights to live in peace without being terrorized by our own fellow citizens and their wanton access to any damn guns they want, and as many as they want, and how they seem increasingly hellbent on creating a "Shootout at the OK Corral" scenario on every street corner? What about OUR rights to be free of shit like that? To be free of that kind of ongoing domestic threat to OUR safety and peace of mind? Don't WE have rights, too? What about OUR rights not to have to deal with fucking damn guns being shoved in our faces all the time? I, for one, am sick and tired of it! Have all the murder toys you want. But keep 'em in your own confines - in your own house. Your own camp ground. Your own shooting range. Knock yourselves out. But, dammit, don't keep pushing them on ME, and where I live, and where MY neighborhood is, and where MY grocery store and church and local watering holes are! KEEP THEM AWAY FROM ME!!!!!!

Welcome to DU, phazed!

Glad you're here! This is just beyond dumbfounding. They REALLY think this will resonate with any women other than the Stepford kind.

Unbelievable! But what's even more shocking and disturbing to me is the thought that there ARE republi-CON and CONservative women out there who find this acceptable - and keep on voting for it!!!!

Somehow it's okay with them???? Hard to believe.

Uh-huh! AND a piece of property, too.

You can also try a small jar of baby food - pureed chicken maybe?

Easier to eat for those little baby digestive systems that are just starting out. Sometimes people tuck a ticking clock under a blanket in the corner of whatever little pen or bed or whatever. It seems to be soothing. They think it's Mom's heartbeat.

Lex, you did a very nice thing!

Welcome to DU, agbdf!

Glad you're here! The best part is getting OUR point of view expressed on the airwaves. How ever it's done. Just at least to push it out there into the electronic public square. We usually have to be pro-active about it. Seems there's less motivation to seek out liberal points of view. The loudest and most frequent loudmouths are usually CONservative.



Welcome to DU, Scarsdale!

Glad you're here! I'm afraid, though, that they ARE getting at least some of their money's worth. If the intent to suppress independent documentary filmmakers' efforts to produce investigatory films, they've succeeded. And it's a shame, too. People cave too easily to this stuff. I am waiting for this little putz and his ilk to "investigate" their way around their own jail cells. There are many vermin who walk the earth since that king-of-vermin, andrew breitbart first started trying to pad his own ego within the Bizarro World of the radical wrong.

THIS ^^^^^^^ times a MILLION!!!

Do NOT spit in the eye of the good - because it may not be the absolutely perfect!!!

We finally have this. We finally have at least a good start. NO it's not perfect. But it's SOMETHING!!! It's a good start! Where, before, we had NOTHING. I'll take something over nothing ANY day.

That's a GREAT idea!
