About Me

A bigoted mind cannot grasp reality.

How long after Trump leaves office do you think the NY AG will indict Trump for his money crimes?

I'm thinking it might be within 30 days. How do you see this playing out?

I'm so proud of Biden's 1st slate of cabinet picks

Wow! John Kerry as climate czar, and at a cabinet level too. I watched the announcement, and I just felt so proud. All of them serious people with proven competence. Not a clown in the bunch. Decency is back. And thank-you Kamala for promising that the Biden administration is dedicated to telling the truth. I just feel so so proud.

When do we all start labeling them as Fascists

because that's what the GOP has become. Because that's what they are.

So what did you think about the speeches Sat night?

I was truly inspired. Harris is a damn good speech maker. There's just something about her style of being that exudes joy and happiness. I noticed this about her during the campaign also. Joy and happiness comes to those who do not cultivate anger and hatred. Her speech emphasized that together, we are a great people. All of us -- together. I'm left with the feeling that she truly cares about me and is serious about effecting change.

Biden's speech left me feeling inspired also. I especially appreciated his challenge to us to open our minds to the possibility of working together. His call for us to return to civility and to stop demonizing one another was music to my ears. I like that he has laid out his agenda: getting Covid under control, improving the economy, supporting the middle class, addressing systemic racism and injustice, and climate. Let's all be clear, that's where we're going.

I do however have a teensy nit to pick. He needs to speak, not shout, into the microphone. It's a microphone.

Trump becomes more and more irrelevant with each passing day

Let's make that also true on this site. I don't care to know about his ugly tweets. They are irrelevant. I don't care about who he's fired. It's irrelevant. I'm not interested in his temper tantrums. They are irrelevant. I don't care about his golf game or how many cheeseburgers he had for lunch. All that is irrelevant.

Folks, it's time to move on. I want to know what you thought of Biden's and Harris' speeches Sat night. Who you'd like to see chosen for which cabinet post. But nothing about Trump, please. Trump is irrelevant. He will soon be swept into the dust bin of history with the rest of the trash.

Stacey Abrams for DNC chair

She deserves it!

Want gto know why so many people voted for Trump?

Google how many high school students in your town and state graduated. In Dallas 2018, 76.5% graduated. Statewide 22% of students dropped out last year. That is disgusting.

Why don't we have a leftist talk radio network?

Why don't we have radio talk shows broadcasting to all those truckers, housewives, farmers and ranchers across America.

Time to contemplate the perfections of a Boddhisattva

For those of you, who are unfamiliar, a Boddhisattva is a highly realized person, who altruistically works for the benefit and liberation from suffering of others. Many of us are shaking our heads in disbelief at the election results. Maybe even depressed and discouraged. One of the perfections of a Boddhisattva is to joyously and enthusiastically persevere. A Boddhisattva doesn't care about obstacles and set-backs. They are all temporary and ultimately impermanent. A Boddhisattva just endures and enthusiastically perseveres, engaged in enlightened activity for the benefit of others. There will be a next election.

Post some election day songs here!
