Burden of Proof…

This nugget showed up on a friend’s FB post, which I can now no longer find. Chances are, either the friend decided it had to go, the genius who posted it blocked me, or I blocked him. At the time, (sometime just after Christmas, I think) I thanked the guy for posting virtually every propaganda-driven Read More …

I got yer “Why now?” right here…

Not a day goes by that I don’t remember the incidents in my past. I have some of the same issues with my own boss, today, in a very small office where the general manager is the only Human Resources representative and part of the problem. It’s been hard continuing to work there, knowing that Read More …

I was off by a month. My bad.

When I started writing online, way back in 2004, my blogging was a combination of minutiae designed to keep a then-deployed husband in the loop on day-to-day life at home. We were not quite to the end of W’s first term, but it was already clear to me what his election meant to the country, Read More …

Storm’s here (Part Two)…

And from here on out, I’m live on Facebook, and will post updates below. I’m devoting all my time right now to updating my spreadsheet. When I’ve finished, I’ll post my results to 270towin.com, but there’s no point in putting the link up now. ETA: 1:43am EST – http://www.270towin.com/maps/36n0N (My best guess as of this moment.) Folks, Read More …

To Trump, from Russia, with love…

Paul Harvey was a well-respected Midwestern radio broadcaster for ABC Radio Networks. When my dad used to take us on our epic summer cross-country road trips, Harvey’s broadcasts were highlights in otherwise endless drives from destination to destination. His segments near the end of every broadcast always began with the phrase “And now, the rest of Read More …

Two weeks…

I am casting my vote for Hillary Clinton as soon as the polls are open for early voting. I’m not taking any chances. Yesterday on FB there was a meme circulating about how Jimmy Carter was up by 8% before the landslide that lost him the presidency in 1980. Back in March, the article below suggested that Read More …

Is THIS what it takes today?

Earlier this morning I posted the following article on Donald Trump: Trump: I was being an entertainer when I insulted women The pull quote comes from this longer interview with Nevada NBC News 3’s interviewer Jim Snyder, who spoke with Trump just before he took the stage at a rally: EXCLUSIVE | One-on-one with presidential candidate Read More …

I think for myself…

There is an oft-paraphrased poem that circulates around the Internet. It goes something like this: First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Socialist. Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out— Because I was not a Trade Unionist. Then they Read More …

Incoherent…

in•co•her•ent (ĭnˌkō-hîrˈənt) ► adj. Lacking cohesion, connection, or harmony; not coherent: incoherent fragments of a story. adj. Unable to think or express one’s thoughts in a clear or orderly manner: incoherent with grief. (Courtesy of Wordnik.) It’s the only word that adequately describes Trump’s behavior last night. I’m not the only one using it, either. Read More …

What if I’m right?

In the last few weeks, Nate Silver’s site fivethirtyeight.com has shifted stance from Hillary Clinton Will Win to Maybe We Ought To Worry After All. You can see the progression here (since the beginning of August): 8/5: Election Update: Trump’s Slump Deepens In The Polls 8/16: Election Update: Clinton’s Lead Is Clear And Steady 9/1: Election Update: As Read More …
