Survivor...I know, shouldnt watch, but I do.

Last night show, Kara, blonde realtor, said to the BLACK player Carl "a spade is a spade" when referring to something he did in the game.

Racist? Nobody said a word, nothing on social media.

Reagan, JFK, Sinatra and our parents and grandparents.

I was standing out in the cold last night at our weekly protest of the nazi traitor fascist in the WH, specifically him and Whitaker and was speaking to some friends about how many of our family members went left or right, politically.

Sinatra was a JFK fan, and most of my relatives were Sinatra fans.

Sinatra built a WING onto his Palm Springs home to house JFK while president for a weekend visit. This was a BIG FUCKING DEAL to have a PRESIDENT stay at your house.

In 1962 President Kennedy planned a weekend trip to Palm Springs, California, where he would stay at the residence of Frank Sinatra from March 24-26. As the weekend approached, Bobby Kennedy, the President's brother and attorney general, became concerned about Sinatra's extensive links to organized crime. He persuaded the President to cancel his stay with Sinatra, and Peter Lawford was given the assignment of informing Sinatra.
The Rat PackLawford (to the right of Dean Martin in photo) was both a member of Sinatra's Rat Pack and a Kennedy relative by marriage. When Bobby asked Lawford to inform Sinatra of the President's change in plans, Peter pleaded with Bobby to reconsider. The attorney general was adamant, however, that the President could not stay at the house of a man who also played host to hoodlums.

Lawford told Sinatra biographer Kitty Kelley: "It fell to me to break the news to Frank, and I was frankly scared. When I rang the President I said that Frank expected him to stay at the Sinatra compound, and anything less than his presence there was going to be tough to explain. It had been kind of a running joke with all of us in the family that Frank was building up his Palm Springs house for just such a trip by the President, adding cottages for Jack and the Secret Service, putting in 25 extra phone lines, installing enough cable to accommodate teletype facilities, plus a switchboard and building a heliport. He even erected a flagpole for the Presidential flag after he saw the one flying over the Kennedy compound in Hyannisport. No one asked Frank to do any of this, but he really expected his place to be the President's Western White House."

"When Jack called me, he said that as President he just couldn't stay at Frank's and sleep in the same bed that [Sam] Giancana or any other hood had slept in. 'You can handle it, Petah,' he said to me."

But, he was talked out of going and Ole Blue Eyes was PISSED!

Fast forward, after this snub, and Sinatra is endorsing one of the worst presidents of all time, Ronnie. Some of my relatives followed right along.

And now I wonder, if they were alive, sure if you told them about rump and NOT that he has an R after his name, they would hate him, but what if they knew he was an R ?? Would they hate him the way we ASSUME Ronnie would? I dont know, maybe best they arent around to find out. but that sucks too.

Before I forget, no candidate with a D can run without releasing 8 years tax returns.

Anywhere in the country, anyone who wants to run in OUR party, must comply.

That is my new rule.

Nancy Pelosi is FANTASTIC and just orchestrated, with much help of course, the LARGEST

blue wave of electing WOMEN in our history...Women of COLOR as well!

Some folks dont like that so they attack her.

Not me, I am a Democrat.
