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 hope that's what his numbers say.

Welcome to DU, BleedsBlue!

Excellent news. I just hope it holds!

I swear, I'm gonna be a nervous wreck by Election Day...

It certainly does!

An innocent man would want ALL the evidence out, released to the public.


TOTALLY and COMPLETELY unexpected.

Welcome to DU, tazmaniac!

They can rationalize pretty much everything, can't they!

The only people playing rough are on THAT side of the aisle. Things in Portland didn't start getting overheated, to begin with, until the stormtroopers arrived.

Even so, NOT gonna relax. The time to enjoy "the math"

is AFTER we’ve won.


What always helps me stay focused AND, more importantly, MOTIVATED.

is the awareness that they’re HOPING we’ll get tired and realize that it’s useless to keep fighting ... and so we just give up. (And maybe just go away).

That is what they want.

You hear it all over. Anyone notice the talking point that’s started to seep into the national consciousness? The “exhausted” thing? “I’m exhausted.” “This is exhausting.” “We’re becoming exhausted...”

THAT’S what they want. It makes conquest easier. It makes a takeover easier. You don’t have to work as hard or lose as much energy/blood/fighters/operatives/strategies when you’ve worn the opposition down because THEY do the finishing for you. THEY get tired or frustrated and THEY give up. Futility can be the offenders’ best friend. It closes the deal with less cost and/or effort.

And the mentality here seems pretty basic. They’re essentially lazy and self-entitled, so they really don’t want to have to work that hard. It should be easy, because, well, THEY are the masters, THEY are the Alpha, and they’re the entitled. THEY are the “chosen” because their “king” is the chosen one. He even said so during one of those impromptu White House outdoor press gaggles, half-joking about it. Uh-huh. Joking my ass.

So, better to just overwhelm and exhaust the opponent. They think, anyway. The opponent will get tired, frustrated, and most-preferably, dispirited, and give up. Or give up and go away. Or, most-preferably, give in.

Well, I WON’T!!!


I WILL NOT PLAY!!! Or, in this case, GET played.

They want us to get tired, overwhelmed, exhausted, worn down. And giving up. So they can just roll on over us and flatten us and rule.

And I. WON’T. DO. IT. No matter how tired or frustrated or despondent it may make me feel. That’s what they want.
