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.

Hell, wonder how many of us DUers are even old enough to remember Pogo?

I do, but I'm OLD! Lol

I think that IS how it works.

The highest-ranking individual in the party IS the leader of the party, as I understand it. In our case, we have a STILL-sitting President, and it's rather difficult to imagine anybody more high-ranking in our party than he is.

Donald Trump is now the head of the GOP because he's now the official GOP nominee. Just as Mitt Romney was, four years ago at approximately the same time. John McCain was NOT, because at that point, we were still blighted by a CON in the White House, and like it or not, that individual was the party leader.

Evidently, so does his former campaign chairman, Jeff Weaver.

Although I didn't see it myself - when he was on Joy Reid's show this morning, but I read about it.

Eyes on the Prize, Guys!

Shit - after all those months of rather unwelcome acrimony and divisiveness, we're finally all getting back together, for Pete's Sake. Seems to me it'd be mighty good to build on THAT and focus on the shared goal, and the common enemy of that goal.

Let's move forward.

Some people just like to stir shit up for the sake of stirring shit up.

Bernie himself does not appear to be one of them and I deeply appreciate that. I'm just glad to see all (or most) of us are working toward the same shared goal now. It's not just a campaign cliche - we ARE stronger when we're working together.

I did what you did, DFW. Took some time away back in August.

I'm back now, too. And it's a lot more like the DU I remembered so fondly - where the comradeship was warm and inclusive, and the discussion was scintillating and sometimes most educational (in a good way)! Glad you're back. I'm glad I'm back, too. But it was VERY helpful and healing to step away for awhile.

We're so much better here when we're not at each other's throats. And we all recognize the REAL enemy - the common enemy we all share.

Welcome to DU, grubbs!

This is chilling. And excellent. And truthful. And thought-provoking. And even if it's older, it's STILL relevant.

Dang - no photos!

I wanna see!

Welcome to DU, Will Morningstar!

Yeah, I saw the Nazi salutes, too. There's a photo of Laura Ingraham up there onstage saluting that way, toward Trump on the big screen behind her.

70th! WOW! And still going strong!

That's a terrific story, Walk away!

There was such a profound appreciation of learning. Reading. Studying. Opening your mind. Letting it run. Follow the facts as far as they take you. And THEN make your conclusions. It doesn't make for any science-versus-religious belief conflicts! It doesn't encourage your inner heathen. It only adds. It only informs! This is not an either/or thing! It doesn't put you in any denial or negation of God. It leads you closer to an appreciation of God. WHATEVER/WHOEVER you imagine or believe God is.

We have a terrific example of the Jesuit mindset on display currently, in Pope Francis.
