Aha! Thanks for letting me know, ralps!

You're doing a terrific job in the meantime, btw.

Reminds me of when outlets like the New York Times and others FINALLY got around to

stating the WAY-more-than-obvious about dubya, with such ridiculous nonsense headlines as "Prevaricating President?" That's as close as ANY of 'em came to calling george w. dry drunk a liar. And it took years even to get that far. What a disgrace.

The Trump Effect has just brought out ALL the worst in far too many people.

I can't believe the behavior I'm seeing! Bullying and loutish and mean-spirited. Graceful in "victory" they are NOT!!! I put that in quotes because I will go to my grave reminding everyone that trump LOST the popular vote, and lost it by A LOT.

Whenever I see or hear or read about somebody like that, I keep asking myself - "would you raise your kid that way? Would you want your kid to act that way or treat people that way?"

Welcome to DU, KatyBR!

Hmm... most interesting.

I'm almost afraid to allow myself to get excited about it though.

Welcome to DU, MadamPresident.

I agree. mike pence would do his utmost to force-feed Christian Sharia Law upon all of us. I seriously believe that. In some ways he scares me more than trump. And with a CON-dominated Congress providing NO stops, NO curbs, NO defiance, and few if any objections to anything the vulgar orange jackass wants, I fear you stated the inevitable. "We are well and truly fucked."

Even if both of them could be removed, we'd still be stuck with Paul Ryan. Which would be nauseating.

At the moment, unless something really miraculous happens in the Electoral College, I suspect it'll be up to all of US to make sure they're one-termers. I'm afraid it's gonna be a looooooooooonnnnnnnnng four years. I don't have any confidence in our Congressional OR Senate Dems to stand up and fight this. As I read in one op/ed piece: "Democrats bring a butter knife to a gunfight."

Welcome to DU, Invidious15!

I'm sure it's happening already on that thoroughly screwed-up end of the spectrum. They all seem to stick together. I hope he winds up on the no-fly list.

Welcome to DU, carburyme!

I'm glad, too. Good to hear this. Makes me respect Delta all the more. If I fly commercial, they'd be my pick.

Oh yes, "Maggie," whoever you are, with that big star-spangled cross as your emblem.


Yeah, Jesus would most certainly post that same kind of shitty, insulting, intolerant, mean-spirited, and jingoistic crap if He were here now... That was exactly what His teachings were all about, weren't they.

What happened? Did SCE step away?

Thanks for filling in, ralps! This will definitely help.

Those Sunday LOLcats help keep me sane.

And one more - #NotMyPresidentElect, also.

I agree with everything here, pbmus. I'm making a copy of this.

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.
