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 was VERY happy to see another reference to that idea just now, on MSNBC.

Now, it’s Zerlina Maxwell, Senior Director of Programming for SiriusXM, o. With Alex Witt this morning (7/20) making the same point:

“Let’s stop talking about his base for awhile. Let’s talk about his opposition.”

Spot ON, Zerlina! Truth!!! That’s EXACTLY what we need to do. Acknowledge OUR base. Which is BIGGER. And deserves recognition and aggressive promotion as well.

Lordy I LOVE that quote - "we know the redemption must come..."

Mercy me!

Another great quote for my collection.

I’m pulling some of them out for the “Inspirational Opening” at the top of every Call to Action email we put together in my Indivisible group. I started - um - taking it over - early-on, when I noticed nobody else seemed interested. But I was, so I did. And now it’s all mine!

But this week, I’m using a quote I took down, verbatim, while replaying a moment on MSNBC when Rep. Gerry Connolly, D-VA, on MTP Daily on July 18th said what ALL our Dems should be repeating and reminding EVERYONE about:

“I think it’s really important to remember that we have a base too and that base is deeply fired up right now about these tweets, and about this obvious racism as a tactic. A political tactic. And independents are equally recoiled! And so I think he (trump) may be firing up his base but sometimes he forgets WE’VE got a bigger base than he’s got, and they’re VERY fired up about this.”

I’m VERY pleased to hear somebody in authority FINALLY bring this up. For awhile, I’ve been complaining that everybody obsessed about the damn trump base - and hey! WHAT ABOUT OURS???? What about OUR base? OUR base is BIGGER!

Why aren’t we paying attention to OUR base?

Why aren’t we focused on OUR base?

Why aren’t we GIVING more attention to OUR base?

I’ll put it in language trump would understand and feel humiliated about: OURS is BIGGER.

And I don’t mind rubbing that in. Not one bit.

I've come to view them as a latter-day version of the "good Germans".

The so-called “good Germans” believed their Fuhrer and believed IN him. They were filled to the brim with denial. And they had a VERY rude awakening when it came to an end and he and his girlfriend took the easy way out, leaving damnable wreckage and ruin and suffering for everybody else to have to pick through and clean up. They didn’t fully realize what had been done in their name - like what happened at the camps and in the gas chambers and the ovens.

And they were shocked and rudely wrenched awake.

Wonder if we’re moving in that direction here, and now?


Well, are we talking physically, mentally, emotionally, or morally?

Great find!

Everything old is new again. Just with a different year on its label.

This is a real keeper!

Bookmarking - just for this.

The past truly is prologue.

Never forget.

Yep. Definitely. And don't forget Matthew 25.

The one about “the least of these” - “whatever you did to the least of these (the poor, the hungry, the sick, the outcast, the homeless), you did to Me.”

And they’ll never sing songs of praise about the story of a Jesus and the rich young man, who, when he asked how he could join Jesus’s movement, was told to go and sell all he had, give the money to the poor, and come and follow.

They’re quite selective in their own “following” of Jesus.

That's a great quote.


I’ve been wanting to see an end to the damned Reagan era since Campaign 1980.

Good riddance, “Ronnie.” Everything that’s presently in full flower started, or got its first boost, with him. Same thing with the so-called “Christian” right.
