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.

Same here!

Yeah, that was pretty annoying.

These people are on OUR side. Why do they want to disrupt? It just messes things up for the rest of us.

GOOD.

More eyes, bigger bounce.

The Dems: 24.7 million last night.
The CONS: 19.75 million on their second night.

The Dems got 25.12 million on Night 2 in 2012, so this year's numbers are slightly down. But either convention year beats the ratings the CONS got last week.

Sorry Donald. More people watched OUR show.

I think what he REALLY wants is to have the Presidential seal to put on his golf courses.

On his stationery. On the front of his Trump hotels. He wants to make money off of it. That's all he cares about. Even his daughter sees this as an opportunity to make money off his campaign. She tweeted about her outfit after her speech last Thursday, trying to redirect followers over to her designer fashion website ("Shop Ivana's look!".

Further, this brings back to the fore - what was said by his son Donald Junior (who denies it now) to John Kasich while trying to woo Kasich as a possible running mate. Pointing out that a President Trump's Vice President would be the most powerful VP in history - in charge of both domestic AND international affairs. Why? Because there are parts of the President's job that Trump doesn't want to do. (!?!!?!?!?!?!?!??!?!?!?!??! I swear - that still floors me. Even writing it FLOORS me.) Remember what happened the last time we had a "most powerful VP in history?" His name was dick cheney, who also had a dim bulb mental-absentee "President" to partner with. And how'd THAT one work out?

And of course, Donald would be looking for all kinds of new ways to make money. Evidently the Russians are into him by hundreds of millions of dollars in loans and investments, because American banks don't want to deal with him anymore:

"I'll list off some facts.

1. All the other discussions of Trump's finances aside, his debt load has grown dramatically over the last year, from $350 million to $630 million. This is in just one year while his liquid assets have also decreased. Trump has been blackballed by all major US banks."

Hmmmm... no wonder he doesn't want to release his tax returns... George Will is probably right (for once).

This is another great point you make.

She's wealthy, she's got a gorgeous house, she's got all kinds of work opportunities through the Clinton Foundation that could keep her quite well occupied for the rest of her days. What the hell does she need this nonstop persecution for? I think I would have packed it in a long time ago.

Every time I see her or a photo of her, I can't help thinking about that Elton John song "I'm Still Standing." Should be her theme song!

I was up on my feet, cheering Rob Reiner!

Nailed it, nailed it, nailed it, and just kept on nailing it!

Called out reporters for not bearing down harder on Donald Trump. No freakin' KIDDING!

It's been sheer agony for me to watch the "journalistic" malpractice on wide display.

Andrea Mitchell, for example.
Trump had just held his news conference where all this stuff about his possible connections to Russia came up (shit, they even asked him about it - color me shocked!), And what did she lead with at top-of-the-hour? Terry McAuliffe running his mouth off that she obviously felt was damaging to Hillary. ANYTHING to lead with dumping on Hillary. When, franky, I'm pleasantly surprised to see the Russian thing is starting to grow legs. But HER lead was whatever might reflect poorly on Hillary.

I think I tweeted about four or five times, on her page with criticism about this, questioning her VERY clear anti-Hillary bias.

My last tweet was about how I was so fed up with her anti-Hillary bias that I'm switching to CNN. Which I then did - for the rest of Andrea Mitchell's hour. Think I'll be making a habit of that. I wasn't exaggerating. I'm totally fed up with her "reporting." If she hates Hillary that much, she really should be working at Pox.

Welcome to DU, RapSoDee!

Probably a fairly young reporter who either wasn't paying attention back when that lying schmuck was rat-fucking ACORN, or she's too young to remember any of that.

I've heard a fair amount, during coverage of the Dem convention, about young people - who are TOO young to remember the 90s, the Clintons, the nonstop persecution of Hillary, or even the world-class criminality of bush/cheney that followed. The conversation was about how things that would be said about Hillary in speeches in Philadelphia would bring out things that many young people had never heard before. Hell, some of those, including Bill Clinton's speech last night, brought out some things that even seasoned reporters had not heard before. And they said so.

Charles Pierce in Esquire magazine has said as much.

Donald Trump's and Vladimir Putin's Shared Agenda Should Alarm Anyone Concerned About Democracy
This is all we should ask Trump about until November. (<=== Subtitle)

On edit -

BTW - we can help by tweeting, Facebook posting, and other uses of social media, about this to these news anchors and reporters. If they see the public wants more of this, they'll react accordingly. Push it, Push it, Push it!!!!

I guess that means he lies "bigly".

And now the word (from his man, Paul Manafort, who's already spent time in bed with the Russians and their puppets in the Ukraine), is - that there will be NO release of tax returns?

What are they hiding? I think we have some well-founded suspicions.

Oh MAN, retrowire...

I freakin' LOVE this:

"It is Hillary or ohmyfuckinggodicantbelieveamericalettrumphappen."

DAYUM you're good.

PLEASE let's make sure we don't wake up the morning after the election, shocked, horrified at what we've just done, and begging for a do-over - like the Brits did after the Brexit vote!!!
