About Me

Always a Democrat. I can't understand conservatives. I try to understand them, but I can't. They don't make sense. Our country has gone so far right since 1981. I was just an average American who took many Democratic values for granted when Reagan was elected. It was like the rug was pulled out from under our society. Reagan ruined our country.

It's D-Day For Doomsday Mom Lori Vallow to Produce Missing Kids

This case is so cray-cray you need flowcharts to follow the cast of characters.
July 2019 Lori's husband is murdered by her brother in her AZ home. Lori caught on police cam flirting and smiling. No tears nothing.
She moves to ID.
Kids disappear Sept 23
She marries Chad Daybell, a mormon doomsday prophet whose wife died in October.
Nov 26, Welfare check on kids in ID. Lori says they are in AZ. They are not in AZ
Lori and Chad disappear, Nov 27
Lori and Chad located at resort in Hawaii...no kids...issued subpeona to produce kids. Jan 25


In the six weeks since Idaho police announced that Tylee and J.J. Vallow were missing, the investigation into the siblings’ disappearance has taken more turns than one of their stepfather’s Mormon apocalypse novels.

And there’s likely to be another one Thursday—the court-ordered deadline for their mother, Lori Vallow, to produce them or face a contempt of court charge and possible arrest and extradition from Hawaii.

That’s where she and husband Chad Daybell have been holed up since cops started looking into the whereabouts of their children, the deaths of their previous spouses, and other bizarre incidents connected to the couple.

Last weekend, police on the island of Kauai served Vallow with a court order signed by an Idaho judge, giving her five days to turn up with 17-year-old Tylee and 7-year-old J.J., who was adopted and is autistic.

53% of Bernie supporters will vote for nominee. My son says Biden is just like a Republican.

Not this again!! Not another 2016!!

First of all, my son posted a clip of Biden from 1995 where he is supporting the balanced budget amendment. Biden states he will cut Social Security and Medicare to balance the budget. Son shared it on FB, so he got it from someone, so it's making the rounds. I found the clip on YouTube.


Then I saw this article:

Only a small majority of Bernie Sanders voters say they will definitely support the eventual Democratic nominee at the 2020 election if the independent Vermont senator does not win the race, according to a poll.

The National Emerson College Poll of 1,128 registered voters between January 21 and January 23 found that 53 percent of Sanders supporters said "yes" when asked if they would support the Democratic nominee even if it is not their candidate.

Another 31 percent of Sanders supporters said it depends on who the nominee is and 16 percent flat-out said no. The poll, conducted via landline calls and an online panel, has a 2.8 percentage point margin of error.

The poll suggests some Sanders supporters are out of step with their own chosen candidate on the question of supporting the Democratic nominee regardless of who it is.

McCarthy
Power Feeds on Fear
Film Description

McCarthy chronicles the rise and fall of Joseph McCarthy, the Wisconsin senator who came to power after a stunning victory in an election no one thought he could win. Once in office, he declared that there was a vast conspiracy threatening America — emanating not from a rival superpower, but from within. Free of restraint or oversight, he conducted a crusade against those he accused of being enemies of the state, a chilling campaign marked by groundless accusations, bullying intimidation, grandiose showmanship and cruel victimization. With lawyer Roy Cohn at his side, he belittled critics, spinning a web of lies and distortions while spreading fear and confusion. After years in the headlines, he was brought down by his own excesses and overreach. But his name lives on linked to the modern-day witch hunt we call “McCarthyism.”
