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.

Totally agree. I like it because it forces people to think.

The original event was cold, harsh reality time, the way I learned it. And I think it's a valuable thing to point this out.

According to legend - Jesus and his earthly parents were quite literally HOMELESS that night. They weren't rich. Joseph was a working stiff. Mary was presumably a stay-at-home mom. Commoners, all, and not blessed with any privilege or status. They had very little money. Some three decades later, at the end of the story, Jesus Himself wound up a murder victim taunted and jeered by a bunch of bloodthirsty yahoos, with the "authorities" disinterested, uncaring, and politically motivated.

I sure see relevance here. A LOT of it.


My comment: "if that Duck Dynasty doofus can be reinstated, why can't Martin Bashir?"

And heck, OUR guy apologized, and with class. Mr.-Osama-bin-Laden-lookalike-meets-ZZ-Top sure didn't bother.

AGAIN! Hard to pick a favorite, but both my nerdy husband and I LOVED the Engineers Guide to Cats 2!

Another outta-the-ballpark post, SCE! Happy New Year!

Welcome to DU, titanicdave!

Glad you're here! I hope and pray to be able to say "good night rethugs"! We kinda have, here in California, where there simply aren't enough of 'em up in Sacramento to screw anything up or obstruct any moves to try and solve problems and do good. And the results are - that our red ink has dried up and California is now in the black! Not enough bad guys to gum up the works so we could finally get there. I've even read coverage, much to my delight, that characterizes the state republi-CON party as basically an endangered species, and on life support. Thank you, Sweet God! That's FABULOUS news for all the rest of us.

Here's how I feel about the GOP:

Once upon a time there was a wolf-in-aw-shucks/sheep's-clothing named ronald reagan. He sweet-talked America into voting him into office and then rolling over and dozing off while he set about devouring everything valuable of ours he could eat. And what he couldn't eat, he let all his little voracious friends out to run amok and gobble up. He brought all these crowds of vermin in to work and play with him, and even had his own backstage pals quaintly referred to as his off-the-books/out-of-view "Kitchen Cabinet" advising him on issues and legislation - kinda like his own personal ALEC. They were mainly SoCal-based tycoons, industrialists, captains of industry, all trickle-downers and supply-siders - pirates like holmes tuttle and justin dart. justin dart was notorious for a rather disgraceful quote regarding the wanton, no-restriction/no-regulation/hog-wild/Katie-bar-the-door clear-cutting of trees in old-growth forests in California (part of our state's most precious heritage), and elsewhere, too. This particular schmuck advocated saving a mere "100 acres, for the kids." Well, okay then. So be it. Let's make sure we have, remaining, a mere 100 republi-CONS or so. You know, for the kids.

I'll feel better when I start seeing this on the mainstream news and reading it

in the headlines in the NY Times, Washington Post, and elsewhere. We need this out there REALLY broadly, so that it's hard to miss. Pox Noise won't cover it but other media outlets hopefully will.

Stunning, isn't it? Doesn't ANYBODY remember???

There were so damn many riots, protests, disruptions, ALL OVER the Islamic World. They were EVERYWHERE. And yeah some of 'em did get covered. DAYUM you'd think somebody in the media would remember!

#NewAEShows: Who Wants to Marry a 9th Grader?

And HOW, dear friend!

Made me get choked up.

WUNNNNNNNNNderful thread, sheshe2. You really find some great ones!!!

Heck, there were eruptions all over the Arab world, spurred by that video.

There were eruptions all over the Arab world when somebody in Scandinavia or Denmark or some place drew a Mohammed CARTOON. A CARTOON that featured the prophet. And the whole Arab world went apeshit. They went apeshit and plotted death threats against Salman Rushdie, too. They tend to do that. Protests like that were happening all over the Arab world at that very same time, spurred BY that particular video - a video over which a whole shitload of people got bent out of shape in country after country. It was not AT ALL unreasonable to assume such in and around Benghazi, even before one investigated.
