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.

I'll join in here!

Look, as bad as stuff is sometimes, just imagine if it were romney in charge now. Just imagine if it was still the blight of bush/cheney.

No he's NOT perfect, okay? He does stuff I disagree with. But as someone else here pointed out - we got Sonia Sotomayor and Elena Kagan. They got jerks like alito and scalia. Nuff said.

LOVE it!!!

(trying to approximate the hand symbol for "Live Long and Prosper"

Gee, coulda knocked me over with a feather on that one.

Gee, I'm so surprised...

Independent MY ASS. Not as long as he goes home to a republi-CON operative every night...

DAMN that was a great thread. SO eloquent, that OP.

Thanks for re-posting it, lumberjack-jeff!

For me it helps to remember. It helps to put a few things into perspective. I think the very monumental growth spurt in our nation's maturity. Seems to me we're kind of an adolescent or teenager country now, compared to the "adults" and other "elders" in the room. Meaning the European nations with their cultures over a thousand years or more, and certainly Japan and China, around for thousands of years. The Jewish collective stretches over several millennia. Our history is a big ol' whoppin' 230-some years long. We're barely out of the high chair compared to many. Historically, to quote Joe Biden, it indeed was/is a "Big Fuckin' Deal!" Whatever else he does, Barack Obama tore down that "Berlin Wall" in our country's evolution. The last wall to be broken through is for women. But Obama created an entrance for non-whites.

I'm still proud I contributed to that in all the ways I did. Granted, there's all the other stuff swirling around now. But hey - how "great" would things be now, given the issues now - if the republi-CON mindset had been in charge instead? God forbid! And thank God that God did.

...just rambling for a moment. Sorry...

Welcome to DU, sobenji!

Glad you're here! I'm going to call Congressman Cummings's office tomorrow and thank him, as well.

They need to know when they've done a good thing! Usually I say "if they think you don't care, they won't, either!" But in the case of this particular representative, I'd expect he'd do righteously whether anyone else cared or not.

Some smart words of warning here.

Complacency can kill us.

Welcome to DU, GraniteDem!

Glad you're here - especially on THIS thread! Moments like these make DU EXTRA worthwhile! Stick around enough and you'll be bobbin along!

Hey, don't rayon everyone's parade!

Best Thread of the Day!!!! Best puns of the month!!!!

Are those your tomatoes? MAN! Gorgeous! Recommend ACIDIC music for weed-pulling!

AWESOME, vigorous, catchy rock 'n' roll to get your energy up! And if you want to turn up the volume, there are no swear words to offend the neighbors!

www.facebook.com/acidicband - and go to BandPage to hear tunes!

ted got a fancy education and loads of opportunity, and like clarence thomas,

he wants to slam the door shut behind him, now that he's safely inside, so nobody else can follow, join in, and benefit from the same advantages he exploited for himself.

He's utterly revolting. SHEESH WTF is the matter with Texas????? Is it the water down there? WHY do they keep coming up with crackpots, idiots, and just plain scheming demons like ted cruz, louie gohmert, tom delay, rick perry, george w bush, and the like?
