Although it does look like something a woman alone walking to her car at night would want to have on. On a finger of a fisted hand, with the pointy ends clearly shown sticking out, OUT FRONT.

Ooooooh! Scandalous!

Well, I hope they VOTE!

They badmouth California because it's a blue state.

They hunger for it and they can’t have it. And they know it and it just kills them. California is majority blue. It votes for DEMS. It’s got the biggest population in the country and the biggest haul of electoral votes - which I believe are awarded winner-take-all. So that’s a block of 50-plus (54? Or maybe 52 or 53 now with reapportionment, because CA lost one or two) that they CRAVE - and can’t have - at least so far. In national elections, California gets you a full quarter of the way home, singlehandedly. And that’s simply by the numbers. We aren’t even talking ego gratification and bragging rights.

So they respond like the typical spoiled-sport on the playground who got punched and knocked down, and then claimed the kid who did the punching didn’t really humiliate him in front of all his friends. They LONG to own California. And it’s out of their reach. And it will remain that way for the foreseeable future, as long as the demographics hold they way they have been.

Makes sense.

I don't think I'd have the heart to.

How could you possibly take the pet back to the shelter after that? Hurts even to think about it!

Me! Right here! Me!

Thank you, President Biden! So proud of my President! Proud to have helped you get there, even if only in a very small way! I’m very happy with the return on my investment!

Ahhhh... the ol' tryptophan trick.

Big turkey dinner and then just conk our for awhile.

Among the long-enjoyed Thanksgiving traditions across America!

Even a loud noisy football telecast can’t fully compete.

About calimary

Female. Retired. Wife-Mom-Grandma. Approx. 30 years in broadcasting, at least 20 of those in news biz. Taurus. Loves chocolate - preferably without nuts or cocoanut. Animal lover. Rock-hound from pre-school age. Proud Democrat for life. Ardent environmentalist and pro-choicer. Hoping to use my skills set for the greater good. Still married to the same guy for 40+ years. Probably because he's a proud Democrat, too. Penmanship absolutely stinks, so I'm glad I'm a fast typist! I will always love Hillary and she will always be my President.
