About Me

I am 57, retired teacher and illustrator, life-long dem., activist, union member. Also I do not use social media and I'm technologically retarded. I love dogs, rock music and swearing (a lot). My 17 year old "puppy" died on June 2, 2020. She grew up listening to Animals (Pink Floyd). She has kept me sane through the tRump years, not easy, and has given me endless love, companionship, kisses and tail wags.

Over 100 rallies planned for March For Our Lives June 11th

Over 100 rallies planned for March For Our Lives June 11th
https://www.axios.com/2022/05/26/march-for-our-lives-texas-shooting

March for Our Lives, the student-led gun control advocacy group, is planning nationwide protests in the wake of the Uvalde, Texas, school shooting, according to its website.

Driving the news: The protests will take place some four years after the shooting at a high school in Parkland, Florida, during which a gunman killed 17 people. That shooting led to the group's founding and preceded the organization holding one of the largest demonstrations in U.S. history.

Why does anyone (Dem or GQP) even want to shoot a gun?

Why?

Isn't it sort of crazy to even want to own a gun to shoot a living, innocent being? What is noble about shooting innocent animals? For sport, for trophies? That is psycho! For food? What about all of the places where you can order food from (done a zillion times during Covid). You won't starve without a gun. There are huge chest freezers to store food in. Food is not a reason for owning and shooting a gun. For sport? How about shooting at targets, skeet shooting, how about taking up archery? For a collection? Maybe. Family tradition...more BS. Your family must have better traditions to bond in. There is NO reason to own a gun. For protection in homes? NO! Look at the statistics. That is a failed agreement.

If you own a gun and have violent tenancies go volunteer as a fighter in Ukraine. There is no reason to own a gun.

Does anyone know if NRA Wayne is hiding on a yacht tonight?

NRA's Wayne LaPierre Hid On Yacht Following Sandy Hook, Parkland School Shootings

"Thank God I'm safe, nobody can get me here," LaPierre recalled thinking after he fled to a private yacht in the wake of the shootings."


"The leader of the National Rifle Association said in a deposition that he fled to a private yacht out of fear for his safety following the Sandy Hook and Parkland school shootings."

"The 108-foot yacht ― complete with two Sea-Doo WaveRunners and a staff of four people, including a cook ― was where Wayne LaPierre, chief executive of the gun rights group, fled after those mass shootings of schoolchildren in 2012 and 2018."

I turned on Fux out of curiosity

and couldn't take it for more than 2 minutes. Judge Something was saying "the Liberals want you to see a gun and think it is bad. They want you to fear guns which we shouldn't. The Left will make it political".....

Unbelievable. They also said the way to fix it is have an armed security guard in each school. Problem solved.

Look at this new graphic on Covid in N Korea....

I look at Worldometers daily and just now I saw a new listing and the biggest spike I have ever seen since Covid began.

"134,520 new cases" in one day.

Taiwan is almost ad freaky...

DU Poll: What is the most surprising event of the last 6 years?

If someone went into a coma in 2015 and woke up now, what would be the most surprising event they would notice?

DOJ requested transcripts from 1/6 Cmte.

Just heard on MSNBC via NY Times.

There's a Virtual Rally for Sat. Pro Choice rallies too.

Join Planned Parenthood Federation of America at a virtual Bans Off Our Bodies rally on May 14! A month before SCOTUS is likely to rule on a pivotal case in sexual health and reproductive freedom, we will join together for a Bans Off Our Bodies Day of Action on May 14th to send a clear, firm message that abortion care IS health care.

In just the first three months of 2022, more than 500 anti-abortion restrictions were filed in 41 states. Access to abortion is being directly stripped away from millions of people who may seek access to abortion right now. As we face these attacks in the states on abortion and await the decision from the Supreme Court on Jackson Women’s Health Organization (JWHO) v. Dobbs we must make the message clear that we will not stand for these bans.

If you would like more information on how you can get involved visit BansOffOurBodies.org and we look forward to seeing you on May 14!
