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.

Me, too. Catholic. It blows my mind how much the teachings of Christ are ignored!

I can't understand it. Just can't! You'd think people calling themselves Christian would be militant about making sure all the needy in our country are taken care of. The whole "am I my brother's keeper?" thing - you'd think they'd all take it to heart. Wasn't that the mission we were all given? To love our neighbors as ourselves? One of the mere two basic commandments given by Jesus? To care for the least of His brethren? Aren't we supposed to be about that, if we call ourselves Christian? I honestly don't know what kind of "Savior" they're following sometimes. It isn't the Jesus I recognize from what the nuns taught us.

Really disappointing. I am so disappointed in my fellow man sometimes. What the HELL are they thinking (besides ME ME ME, and Screw You, all the time, that is)???

Just realized something - the first half of "mean" is ME. Most instructive.

World's Biggest Entitlement Program: the GOP's belief that it alone has the Divine Right to rule.

They view the White House as just another one of their personal properties to which they're entitled by some "Holy Fiat." And the House of Reps and the Senate and the Supreme Court. And MAN do they act up when they don't get their way.

The GOP: the Party of Spoiled Brats and Other Assorted Adult-Sized Infants.

What I find just stunning is that this guy actually has people voting for him.

Who on EARTH thought this flake was worthy of being a Congressman? WTF is with the voters in his district? They actually LIKE this shit? Tells you more about them than anything else I can think of - and none of it is good.

Good for her, for finally coming to her senses and recognizing when enough was enough.

Those stars-in-yer-eyes can be awfully blinding. I don't envy her from now on, though. He's such a fricking control-freak that I'd be worried about stalkers and even kidnappers (of Suri) if I were her. These people are like republi-CONS. They don't give up. They don't let up. They don't admit or accept defeat, even when it's jammed up their asses and smacked in their faces like a cream pie from a Three Stooges short. They're willfully defiant because they have this fire in their eyes about how their "god" and their "religion" is somehow the Great Divine Dictate. People do screwy, shitty, indeed even abominable things when they think God is on their side, and they have the ultimate "get out of jail free" card. I'm a lifelong Catholic. Look at what MY religion's done to people, for pity's sake!

That Scientology shit is scary and completely wackadoodle. She needs to get herself and her little girl AS FAR AWAY from those berzerko monsters as possible!!!

Wouldn't surprise me if scalia was the leak. Look what a hissy fit he threw after it

apparently became clear to him that the ruling would NOT go as he dictated. I bet he planted a few seeds in desperation to make SURE there was a thumb on the scale to tip it his way. It HAD to go HIS way, after all. Because I suspect he views himself as THE CONservative conscience of the court (CONscience, in his case), and his fabulous solidly ham-handed knuckle-dragger record was going to be compromised with this HUGE ugly blemish across its own fat face. Did EVERYTHING he could to turn roberts and save the court's sterling reputation with his brother and sister CONs. And it was not to be, and he probably knew there'd be people all over the CONservative landscape who, deep down, would hold him singularly responsible for not "managing" this one successfully. So he just started thrashing around, acting out, and throwing this giant adult-infant temper tantrum because he knew it was going against him and that the entire world would see that, in just another couple of days.

I suspect the bad guys have learned, from previous experience, that you could ALWAYS rely on your pal fat tony to make sure that ruling was securely in the CONs' pocket. And he failed. Failed BIGTIME in the biggest game yet. He failed them when they were counting on him to deliver the third strike that would cement the court's reputation as some sort of Neanderthal lockbox. He performed beautifully for them on Citizens United, and of course he was reliably on the "right" side of bush v Gore and too many other regressive rulings to count by now. And they got spoiled - as CONS usually do, expecting that it's just some Divine Right that they must rule. World's Biggest Entitlement Program - the GOP's presumption that it is supposed to rule by some Heavenly fiat. They sure do get their panties in a bunch when that presumption doesn't hold, don't they? They go apeshit when the ol' CONventions don't hold.

Judicial activism, anyone? Activist judges, CONS? How 'bout it then, 'eh?

I feel like we don't have roads anymore around L.A. We drive on long narrow quilts.

They're a mess, mainly because nobody wants to pay taxes anymore. But they expect decent roads and they expect nothing to go wrong when they drive over that big open hole in the pavement. That whole howard jarvis movement was one giant public lobotomy.

That was my guess too. Beautiful Somalia!

A select group of "elites" - robber barons and warlords controlling all the money and power.
Millions of poor, starving, disenfranchised, silenced, sick, homeless, and powerless.
No laws or annoying regulations.
No government!
Total anarchy!
And guns everywhere, all over the place, as far as the eye can see!

Absolute Eden for the teabaggers and other "don't tread on me" types!

Funny thing is, they'd have apoplexy if they were transferred over there. But... but... but... this ISN'T what we wanted at all! (Response: Sorry, but YES. You bet yer ignorant willfully-stupid asses it is. It's what you've been demanding since your elders first voted for reagan. I'm sure you THOUGHT this was what you wanted, until you saw it in action. But then again, I seriously doubt that any of you assholes even have the faintest idea WHAT you want. All you really do know anymore is how to get yer hate on and get it all worked up.)
