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, locdlib!

Glad you're here! The more new members we have, it's (HOPEFULLY!) just that many more who can urge their friends and family to VOTE!!! It may simply come down to that! We CANNOT sit this one out. Believe me - the other side sure won't. But there are more of us than there are of them and if we flexed our numerical muscle at the polls every time, we'd have pro-choice Dems and rational thinking in every position possible.

I'm 61. Feel the exact same way!!!!

We fought and fought HARD. And to see all that effort and struggle reversed, bit by bit, is just as disheartening as hell!

VOTE.

That's the only way. Get EVERYBODY YOU KNOW to vote. DRAG them there, physically if you have to.

Some good ideas in THIS thread from DUer TygrBright:

NOW we're talkin'!

Don't forget - NOW we can go right up to people and "just have a conversation!" Yay!!!!! And they can't stop us!

I really like the whole idea of presenting alternative places to shop for hobby/craft supplies! Places that the big box stores threaten to run out of business. And be sure to point out how Hobby Lobby deals with China all the time. Cheap-ass/made-in-China/screw the American worker China. Yeah, THAT China. You all okay with that, Mr. & Mrs. Crafting America?

There should be consequences for this.

Consequences.

I can't wait for some Sharia-law-believing Muslim "closely held" company pressing this advantage. What will the reaction be then?

So what? He'll probably go ahead and try it anyway.

This bunch never let any such arguments stop them. You really think this "standing" business will? I remember back when Roe v Wade was settled law. A done deal. War's over. We won. End of story. And look how THAT turned out.

Welcome to DU, C Moon!

Glad you're here! Only one problem - I sincerely doubt most of our reps really ARE onto their hijinks. I think most of ours has this candy-coated belief that the other side CAN be brought to the table, IS capable of listening to reason, IS willing to play fair.

And they could NOT be more wrong. Our side is still naive as can be. The next time I hear some moon-faced Democrat carrying on about - "the American People will KNOW!" or "the American People will SEE!" All I can do is laugh hysterically! They WON'T know OR see! They'll believe what they're told in the propaganda department and swallow it whole. Or they'll fall back on the ol' "meh, both sides are alike!" or "meh, it won't make any difference," or "meh, there's no difference between the two parties so what's the use." So they don't vote. Or they cave and capitulate and try somehow to meet the other side halfway. Which is an exercise in futility if you ask me, because the other side doesn't want to meet OUR side halfway. They're not interested. It's their way or the highway, even when they haven't won the election! They're firmly in the minority nationwide, according to every poll on every issue, but they still manage to impose their narrow, backward view on the rest of us in the majority. What they're doing these days, in Washington, is nothing less than voter nullification, since they failed to win the White House twice in the last two tries.

They never give up, and unfortunately, our side usually does. Even a casual glance through the history of women's rights will prove that's true. We are the ones who lose that sense of fire in the belly. We are the ones who think you have to give 'em some of what they want. When we need to be the ones who say - "all we're gonna give YOU assholes is a nice big proverbial 2x4 across the teeth. WE won, YOU lost, GROW UP AND GET OVER IT."

Just imagine - if it were the other way around - wouldn't THEY be doing exactly that to us?

Um... when has this "congress" NOT hesitated to waste taxpayers' money?

Every minute they're "at work" is a waste of taxpayers' money because they do "go to work," at least physically, and then make sure NOTHING, NOT A DAMN THING, actually gets done.

Their very existence is a waste of taxpayers' money!!!!

There goes our pal Justice Elena Kagan again - building that ol' consensus!

MAN is she a pistol. MAN does she build consensus! MAN does she get the job done...



NOT!!!!!

ABSOLUTELY.

The menfolk have never faced obstacles like the ones we women have had to fight and resist and overcome - seemingly forever. Maybe it's time they found out how it feels.

ROFL!!!

Heck, you sound like you need a nice warm just-outta-the-oven chocolate chip cookie!
