Pathetic. Just beyond belief.

Funny how the man with more money than Midas doesn't offer a nickel of it - when the Red Cross has made it clear they need donations of MONEY. But leave it to myth wrongney to divert attention and do something far less than needed. Yep, this is what it'll look like. A sneak preview of all the wonderful hands-on care and concern and compassion that he'll bring to the presidency if we're unlucky enough to see him win.

Yeah, no freakin' kidding! (Or would that be no freepin' kidding! ?)

Well, the President who's being shown hard at work totally hands-on, on TV and cable, and gratefully praised and thanked by the area's governors and mayors alike, party notwithstanding, sure turns their twisted assertions upside down. The coverage would seem to strike a match to the "he's done nothing" blather.

First Amendment aside, I wish flat-out lies and distortions - so doggone obvious that almost all imaginable media practically anywhere on earth is fact-checking - would simply not be allowed on the air or in print.

And I believe she's anti-choice.

I don't care WHAT nice things are said about her, or if she believes in climate change (well, howdy-do, broken clocks and all that). If they have an "r" by their name, in my view, they're suspect, and not to be trusted. My husband thinks she's pretty cool. I think not.

And we should consider anything this lunkhead says - as worthy of half a nanosecond of our time?

Who asked you, brownie? And who the hell are YOU to question whether Obama responded too soon? Jesus Mary and Joseph!

Almost seems like a compliment to President Obama that a certified incompetent idiot jackass disses the job he's doing on handling an epic natural disaster. He would know, wouldn't he?

Indeed. Btw, I LOVE your Union button in your sig line!

Proud union member here. Your button certainly nails it!

...when what the Red Cross REALLY needs is money, and blood donations.

Donating clothes and canned food just makes more work for them, and adds unnecessary expense that they don't need at a time like this.

KICK! Proud union member here!

What I wrote when I shared this on Facebook:

Unions. QUIT BAD-MOUTHING THEM!!!!! They just might SAVE YOUR LIFE.

Another good one, Will!

Definitely recommending.

Shared Will Pitt's Truthout essay ( http://truth-out.org/opinion/item/12404-the-eye-of-the-storm-that-sees-us-all ) on Facebook, with this:

Deniers, PLEASE come in out of the cold (and superstorm, and melting glaciers, and freak temperature swings, and never-heard-of-before weather phenomena)!

Evil fuck or ASSHOLE. Remember, he IS a republi-CON after all. He even agrees.

A year later, they interviewed him. Tripathi, appearing with the same censored face that shows up in Twitter photos, said he was “not as blatantly an asshole in person” but still has “asshole tendencies.” He credits Adderall with his skill at writing so many provocative comments.

Welcome to DU, donna's girl, and Bainbridge Bear too!

I remember when that imperious, entitled, heartless bitch had the gall to question why she should have to bother her "beautiful mind" about such lowly, trivial things as the toll of death and injury during war. MAN! Madam Warmth! I found her loathesome. Just as I find Madam Smug, aka her ladyship ayn of dressage.

Glad you guys are here. We need you! Especially in these last waning days...

Now get to work.

About calimary

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.
