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 have never been a big Elena Kagan fan.

When the President said he chose her because she's a great consensus builder, I had to make sure my ears were clean. I couldn't believe what I'd just heard. She's a shitty consensus builder! She's the one who argued the government's case against Citizens United, as Solicitor General. And she LOST. Some consensus she built there, 'eh?

I CANNOT believe that the three women on the high court went this way. I cannot believe it. That they'd find it okay to leave women coming to a family planning or women's health clinic wide open and unprotected like this. I am just stunned. Not ONE vote from any of the three of them? Madame Associate Justice Ginsburg? YOU TOO?????

Sheesh... I think the Hobby Lobby case is lost. We have NO ONE on the court taking our side.

Yum! I'll bring cookies for dessert!

And, okay, I'll be a complete slut: "Copper Man" by ACIDIC!

TONS o' silly!

AND - "Shout" - The Isley Brothers

Original version OR the "Animal House" version. Both of 'em work!

"You Make Me Feel Like Dancing" - Leo Sayer

Hey, as long as it was previously un-used!

I laughed hysterically! And then I thought - what a ridiculously clever idea! PLEASE forgive what might seem like a sexist remark, because I mean it as a compliment. I turned to my husband (who wanted to know what the noise was, so I showed him) and I said - "a man must have thought of that!" DAMN clever!!! There's creative time management for ya!

Thank you, sweetie! No, seriously. Thanks!

Okay, this is really stupid and I'm embarrassed to admit this - but scanning down the LOOOOOOONNNNNNNGGG list here and seeing that nobody mentioned me actually made me really sad! Hell, I realize this is a thread - on the internet - and that's a little bit of foolishness and weirdness right there! And I shouldn't let it bother me, and I shouldn't get upset, and I should just laugh it off, 'cause it's just the internet. I get that. This just hit me really hard. I took it seriously. And I took it personally. All these other DUers were getting mentioned, many repeatedly, and nobody wanted to meet me. Actually, I probably would want to meet all of them much more than I'd want to meet me, too!

I actually closed the tab on my laptop, which I always keep open on DU, and contemplated posting one of those threads where one announces one is leaving or is taking a break for awhile. Maybe I need to, anyway.

It just really got to me. Maybe I just need to avoid threads like these for awhile, but I saw trumad's first - and I felt really bad about that, and bad for him, and then I got curious, and came over here to check this one out, and - well, there it is.

Thanks, sheshe2. I appreciate this so much! DAMMIT. Still taking it too seriously...

Welcome to DU, padruig!

Glad you're here! But Ewwwww - you mention scalia. He is a disgrace. Pompous, arrogant, entitlement junkie. He alone justifies the idea of term limits on Supreme Court justices.

ARGGGHHHH!!!! Remember Susan Smith?

She made it up, too, fingering some mysterious black carjacker - who didn't exist. Miserable woman. And everybody jumped at it while she cried her crocodile tears. And then that schmuck newt gingrich swooped in like some vulture over raw carrion and announced that this is what you get when you for Democrats.

I will never forget that.

I will never forget her. CONNIVING MURDERER.

I will never forget newt, either. CARD-CARRYING SCHMUCK!

And everyone will wear their underwear - on the OUTSIDE.
