This is a terrific one!

We're talking about letters-to-the-editor in my Indivisible group.

Just look at all the important and relevant points made in this one, aside from Russia!

If I wrote something like that, I might throw that in, too. A brief mention.

There are more than 4,000 American families

whose Thanksgiving dinner tables would still be fully seated. Instead, every single one of those families faces an empty chair. Forever.

War dead from the Iraq War that NEVER would have happened.

One of the last things the Clinton administration did for bush/cheney was to advise them about how critical an issue terrorism was going to be. And they turned up their noses at those urgings. Because - eeuwww! Democrats! They’re the OUTGOING. Who needs to listen to THEM anymore? And besides, Sore Loserman. Sucks to be them. Or as cheney himself had the gall to say, “the adults are back in charge.”

And those “adults” left wreckage, ruin, sky-high unemployment, a devastating recession, an increase in poverty, screwed-over workers, war crimes, and a destabilized Middle East behind as they were walking out the door (unpunished and NEVER having been held to account for the damage they did).

AND - look up Arlene Alda, his wife.

She wrote a couple of children’s books that my kids just loved! LOVED ‘em! Perfect for bedtime reading.

So have I.

We still enjoy binge watching old episodes of “M*A*S*H”. As recently as last night.

Court Santa! That's great!

I love this guy and he sure speaks for me! If he’s back out there today (7/31) then it can still be Christmas in July!

Smacked in the face time and time again, yet she still reaches out to help.

She persists. My admiration for this woman knows no limits.

Unfortunately, the Let’s-Dump-All-Over-Hillary movement persists as well. Even here.

Cuz it’s all HER fault, right! Hang it on Hillary, ‘eh?

Don’t ever expect me to join in on that crap.

Paul Krugman nails it again.

Welcome to DU, ilrslr3!

I don't follow sports, but I've always respected him. This is just another reason to like him all the more!

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.
