About Me

I was born in 1946 and have been thru 12 real presidents and 1 phoney, so you could say I've been around the block a few times. I can say with authority, that this is the first time I'm truly freighten for my country.

Got my second covid vaccine yesterday.

Felt good when I woke up, but suddenly seem to be very, very tied and achey. Took my tramadol that my pain doctor prescribed for my chronic back pain. I hope that's all of the side effects for me. I feel very lucky.

Got my 1st vaccine shot a little while ago.

No problems. There were several people getting their 2nd shots. The more the better so we can kick this virus in the arse.

Tried for 4 weeks to get this shot, so don't get discouraged. Since there's another company coming out with a vaccine things should loosen up.

I'm sending good vibes your way and wishing all of my DU family the best.

I'm so happy because I got a call to get my 1st vaccine shot.

Been trying to get signed up and I finally hit the jackpot. I could hardly answer the questions they asked because I was so happy.

Some people never learn.

For some people with a diagnose of incurable cancer it's a chance for them to take a long good look at their life and ask themselves what could've I done better or how can I use the time I have to make amends to those who I've wronged.

Lee Atwater was the campaign manager when George H. Bush ran for president against Michael Dukakis. Atwater ran a very dirty and nasty campaign. He was a mentor for the likes of Roger Stone and Karl Rove, so one can just imagine how bad it was. Atwater used fear and shame against not only Dukakis, but is wife Kitty.

After Bush won the election, Atwater was diagnosed with a stage 4 cancer. Knowing he had few months to live he tried to make up for what he had done to the Dukakis family by apologizing for what he did to their family.

Rush Limbaugh knew what he was doing and more then likely was enjoying his performance. He considered himself a showman. I don't think he regretted anything and that is the shame of it all. Life has way of making one pay for what we sow.

I love to read posts at DU

You ask why, well reading posts here, some make me laugh like hell or they make me mad as hell. Either way you guys are the greatest. I honestly think I would go insane without DU.

In 1864 a Massachusetts legislator and historian said

" Professed patriotism may be made the cover for a multitude of sins."

He was a member of the Whig Party. Evidently, some things never change.

I have a question about January 6th.

I have read a number of articles that stated January 6th is just ceremony where the VP opens the certified electoral votes and presents them to congress. If that is the case and nothing will change the outcome of that day, then why did this crowd of unhinged rioters think they could change the outcome?

I understand that as each state envelope was called a challenge of that states electors could be made and if that challenge came from both the house and senate they would have go to their respective chambers to debate the challenges and vote on them. I get all those things.

However, at the end the day nothing would have changed.

So than why would they think that by storming the capital would change anything? They evidently thought they were going to change the outcome. Did they know before they got there what was going to happen?
