    OMG great post by the way.

    With words even truer and prettier.

    Because like you, I sit and watch the Dems, all of them KNOWING Hillary is not going to work.

    Because if nothing else, Donald Trump is going to bring up the infidelities, the mean-ness of this woman, the scandals of her past.

    Without the Lamestream media able to bottle it up, the American voters are going to hear all about this and like you said, the Democrats are so beholden to Hillary and that corrupt Clinton foundation that they will stand numbly by her side as she implodes.

    Yeah, the notion makes me smile.

    I’m a big bird-watcher.

    When I read Rachel Carson’s “Silent Spring” I was a liberal what fell for it.

    Oh my, I sobbed, DDT is making the birds’ eggs too thin. The eggs are crushed by the weight of the mother’s incubating, something that wouldn’t happen because of the DDT.

    They even made raptors an endangered species because of the stupid book...eagles, hawks....that kind of thing.

    But I was a boo hoo liberal and so in Africa, a country/continent that could not care less about birds for God’s sake, ban DDT.

    So the humans begin to all catch malaria and the corrupt dictators in charge find out that all kind of money rolls in to help the malaria victims, which they get to keep most of.

    The birds never entered into it and, in fact, it was all a lie.

    A much deeper and more nuanced subject than you might think.

    Now there’s too many damn raptors....although I love them all.

    So it’s late in the afternoon, I been behaving, the thread has several pages now.

    I am mellowing out so I thought I’d write a thoughtful piece on Lovi.

    Just some random thoughts; give me credit for trying to comprehend.

    Lovi Vasquez is my landscaper. Been my guy since my daughter refused to help me as she promised when moving here. He told me to call him Angil, then he said “BELOW”...just like that sounds. I’m thinking he was trying to tell me LOW-VEE, as his name is spelled and how it’s pronounced.

    I think.

    Lovi does take text messages on his cell phone so that’s mostly how we communicate as he can get someone to help translate it.

    Of course he’s illegal. Now I didn’t know that when he left a card in my mailbox when I was about ready to pour weed-killer over my entire lawn in desperation. And Delaware is chock full of Ecuadorans, Guatamalans.....the chicken industry thing.

    But about Livo.....he’s a nice guy, does a magnificent I don’t understand much of what he says. He never mows without blowing off all sidewalks, the driveway, the porch, the back deck....yeah. He also uses a weed whacker and trims around all trees, buildings, etc.

    Last month he, to my surprise, shows up with an entire crew, truck, long thing in the back, riding mower (you stand up on the thing!), leaf blower he wears on his back.

    His crew mulched and trimmed and cleared all my gardens and he did a great job.

    Now I have hired “American” landscapers before....they charge a fortune and then THEY hire Mexicans to do all the work.

    I am just so impressed at how Livo does his job, the pride he he went from one little lawnmower to outfitting a full landscaping company.

    Now Livo wants my help. He can’t speak English, he’s seen my Blogs and he’s also seen a couple of books I wrote.

    No, I am not going to get involved with Livo’s business, whatever it is. He also works a full time job, by the way, doing his own work on evenings and weekends.

    But the guy is stuck. He can’t speak English. He got a lot of calls from here in my own community when they saw how great he did my lawn.

    So that’s all. Just some musing.

    Livo seems to drive all over the place, now with big carts and stuff....evidently nobody plans to deport Livo.

    Please understand, I do not know Livo’s situation. But I’m pretty sure he’s illegal.

    Y’all heard about that nut job in Delaware...Baumbach...yeah I know the guy...putting up a bill to make the entire state of Delaware a sanctuary state?

    This elected gubmint just keeps flipping us the bird that they make the rules. With the Republicans always looking the other way.

    This Baumbach is in big trouble. Because guess what? We understand such as fences, walls and locks out here in la-la land where we carry this country on our backs.

    THIS is a big reason why the electorate is revolting against the elected. We want rules, we want the rules to be enforced, we don’t want a wild and wooly running amok country with everything chaotic and scattershot.

    And when Trump deports all the illegals but let’s them re-apply....which Trump says he’s going to do and I am certainly okay with that....I will personally help Livo reapply, maybe even teach him English.

    Cause they say we have no heart when we send them away. Oh yes we have hearts, big hearts us Americans. But we also want sanity and reason.

    I’m jus’ sayin’.

    Forgive me as I go on a rant here.

    What the hell is Bill Crystal’s claim to fame?

    This guy ain’t giving up recruiting a third party candidate, he goes on and on.

    I know he’s considered a neo-con, which is a Jewish Conservative as I am to understand.

    And he admitted on This Week with George Steponallofus that he knows Romney is not the third party guy.

    How can we make this asshole go away?

    Forgive my language.

    Hillary on Meet the Press explaining her plan to have husband Bill in charge of the economy or some ridiculous thing.

    “Every -first lady- has taken on some kind of project” Hillary says.

    Heh. So Bill is now the first lady?

    Thanks CRR.

    Anyway, some political thoughts.

    It seems that with each passing minute Trump gets more support, even some from the elected elite. Jeb Bush notwithstanding and not that anybody cares. But the jerk is out and about and trying to make good with Trump supporters. The Bushes and Romney need to just go away.

    And folks, Trump is going to CRUSH Hillary. Because if we all know one thing it’s that the lamestream media does not pursue Hillary like they should. Even now that the many women mistreated by Bill Clinton are coming out the Lamestream says all their claims have been DISCREDITED.

    Where have they been discredited? Because the Lamestream doesn’t want to talk about it, this means those women’s stories were discredited?

    Trump is going to beat Hillary to a pulp and it will be easy doings. Because not Jeb, not limp-wristed Mitt, not, no. Surely not Kasich. Ted Cruz perhaps but still and so....


    While the other side lies and throws every brickbat available.

    I kind of understand.

    Because for 38 years I have been mistreated by my daughter and finally I took a stand.

    There is a warrant out for her arrest.

    Cause sometimes you gotta fight back.

    And Trump will do that.

    Morning AB, All.

    Thank you AB for doing this thread so reliably. Weather so icky here good day to sit, watch TV and monitor the FreeRepublic Sunday talk show thread.

    Yes I had a lousy week....a horrible week. But I am not going to write about it, thank me very much.

    Thank you Bray for weekly wisdom, thank you yon commenters for keeping the thread flowing.

    I do have one favor I ask all of yon readers.

    Please pray for me.

    Because I can’t pray any more for myself. Prayer seems to be making things worse. That and God hates me.

    Don’t tell me not. No innocent person would have so much misery piled upon them unless God hated them.

    No lectures.

    God hates me.

    So I ask yon reader to please pray for me...maybe God will listen to other people, not one he hates so much.

    Beyond that, I’m going to smile, type and enjoy some political discussion.

    Finally, I am currently reading a great book and y’all know the author.

    I’ll shut up now.

    Carry on.

    So all day I been watching Reince Preibus and man can that guy move his lips and say the same thing over and over?

    Not that this is a bad thing, necessarily. But I can’t get why all this hesitation, explanation, reasons why they don’t support he who the voters chose.

    And this trump John Miller story....whatthehey?

    Some guy, allegedly John Miller, calls up the Post. And the scuttlebutt is that it was TRUMP who released this story. Which makes me laugh but scratch my head.

    Why would TRUMP release a tape of himself talking about himself? Then he denies it was him and by me, it kind of sounded like him but not all that much to be definite.

    And as for Trump tax returns, it’s only the MEDIA worrying itself to death over this. I could care less about Trump’s taxes. I’m thinking they’re huge, complicated things that will cause the WAPO to hire CPA’s to find bad deductions, etc.

    Thanks Pugs but the commenter has a point.

    As usual, I insert smirk here, he or she doesn’t take the time to wait around and learn the landscape.

    Because the Sunday talk show thread, by its very nature, has ebbs and flows. Bray and I, myself having been on this thread for fifteen years dear Lord doesn’t that cut you some slack....get some indulgence because, well, we both like to write.

    And B)....there’s those ebbs between Meet the Press and Fox News Sunday.....longer comments, posts with short stories, are read, goodness I got so much Freepmail from my poast and believe me, folks, I’d rather not ever get a Freepmail again if my torment would stop.

    But don’t feel sorry for me Argentina. It’s my daughter craving sympathy, not me. I have learned that sympathy comes with a cost, unless, of course, you are a fake. Then it’s the best of both worlds.

    I’ve been on repetitive threads...the Rush thread, the gardening thread.....people do ten to congregate on some threads repetitively due to their mutual interest. I’ve noted little essays about personal lives.

    I was not so stupid as to jump in with snark and nastiness.

    I also go to great pains to contribute to the thread purpose, as does Bray.

    Finally, one of the greatest keys on our keyboards is that SCROLL key.

    Just scroll down people, scroll down,....pass on by.

    Anyway, I got some political thoughts....surprise. Hang on.

    Thanks for taking the time to respond.

    The big problem with daughter....she FOOLS EVERYBODY!

    She’s had almost thirty years, beginning at age 14 when she deliberately got pregnant by a retarded school mate. We had DNA tests, signed all adoption she tells everybody some old guy down the street got her pregnant.

    We caught her at age 16 on what they then called NEWSGROUPS, anybody remember them? My beloved deceased husband caught her telling everybody she had brain cancer.

    Last year she put on Facebook an ultrasound belonging to somebody else and telling them that the red shaded parts means cancer. To look at it you’d think she would die in a day or two.

    But I wrote the book, now read by many, including the woman who taught my NAMI class (National Alliance of Mental Illness), an organization, like Al-Anon, helps people like me cope with mental illness. That lady is now my personal friend and oh....oh, oh, oh....she LOVED the book and agrees totally that daughter has severe Munchausen.

    Well I don’t have all the answers but folks, dealing with her is one thing, dealing with everybody she fools is a daunting task.

    If I were to tell you all about my week you’d think I was making it up.

    Let us start sort of mellow. Then it gets real bad…..real baaaaaad.

    But I am going to survive so do not read for fear of very sad ending. Odd and strange, but it will be over someday.

    I went to “try out” to be a Cantor. Aw man I was so full of myself, insert smile and a wink here, thinking I got some kind of weird contralto voice that the parishioners will love.

    So they fired our Music Director and the new one called us all in to get a grip on how we sound, our strengths, volume….that kind of thing.

    Folks, it was….well it was sad….very sad. Oh my Music Director told me I did fine, that I had “potential”, that she wanted me to practice here, practice there.

    Man, you know when you are singing, you know when you sound bad. I won’t say I sounded bad, exactly, I have an okay voice, can carry tune with a bucket. But I changed keys all the hell over the place….

    Good sport that I am, after that first practice I immediately wrote an email and resigned from any thoughts of being a Cantor. Man I was scared out of my mind just me, the Music Director and me with the organ, alone in the church. I was shaking like a leaf in a wind storm. What the hell was I thinking I could stand up there and sing, loud and bright just like Adele, to five hundred people.

    Yes I am still in the choir, I am not THAT bad. Also I might be singing tenor or bass as Music Director does agree my range is very “unique”.

    “But you’re not a solo singer,” she said, kindly. I always say that. So I guess I won’t be singing “Frozen” any time soon.

    We move on to the horror story. Absolute horror.

    Y’all know my daughter has Munchaussen, a mental disorder that has people putting ticks on themselves to get Lyme disease, sticking pencils in their throat to get Strep.

    Since I have STUPIDLY bought her a house, her, her husband, her daughter…my granddaughter….for the last three years it’s been a nightmare. First she gets restraining order on husband for no reason at all. Sure he had issues but she’d been married to the man for twelve years and while he had issues with working, he never abused her and is a damn good father to my granddaughter.

    She got the restraining order and tortured him for a year and a half. He fought like the dickens to get visitation with his daughter and she did all kind of silly stuff.

    As for the hospital, dear Lord since she’s moved here three years she’s been the hospital almost half of that time. INDEED people, this daughter of mine has cost YOU over ten MILLION DOLLARS FOR HER FAKERY, I got all the dates and times. She gets everything for free, rides to the doctors. Meanwhile she would take my Jeep to go to Baltimore’s famous mental bin, Shepherd Pratt….which I call Shepherd Pratt Pool and Spa. I gave it to her cause she threatened suicide. She’s threatened suicide some 87 times, with hospital admissions….I got it all documented.

    So then she gets a restraining order on ME. Sets me up, blindsides me…..damn it’s the saddest story. This after I bought her a house, took care of her dogs for five straight weeks, fixed her and her daughter dinner EVERY night, paid many of her bills….she only gets $617 a month, another cost you pay people cause there ain’t a damn thing wrong with her. She did work for three days but in a chicken factory and quit cause it smelled like shit.

    THEN….no I’m not done….she lost her daughter. Which my son-in-law managed to get custody after paying almost ten grand for a lawyer while she got all her legal help free.

    Recently I posted about how she went into the loony bin, and for the THIRD time she left her dog all alone in that house. ME, even my friend Diane Feinstein, heard that dog barking. The last time she left the dog the house was filled with fleas….two dogs she left, mother and daughter. Those dogs suffered, they suffered. She left them all alone for three weeks and they had no escape from the fleas and obviously the house was a wreck. Which me and Diane Feinstein cleaned up.

    So she comes home with a break from the loony bin, no daughter….lost custody. Son-in-law gave mother dog back to daughter because he couldn’t keep her. Daughter promised to keep her.

    Of course she back to loony bin and leaves dog AGAIN. This time, since the key I had wouldn’t work….she used the upper lock on the door, intentionally I think, so I couldn’t get in. So son-in-law broke window and we got the dog. She calls cops on me, they come over to my house, tell me to fix window….yada, ydada.

    Last week I knew something was wrong. No activity around the house.


    The washing machine, the dryer, the DISHWASHER, the refrigerator….ALL GONE!

    And they were nice appliances.

    I hear she’s living as a “squatter” in a mental help facility, whatever that means.

    See, she wants me to sell the house. It’s half in my name, half in hers. She can’t sell without me. Now I can’t rent it out without putting in money, I can’t let son-in-law, granddaughter….et all to move in, again….she’d find a way to torment.

    And I know I’m sitting here typing and yon reader probably wonders why I do this in public. Well she called the radio station on me, was on the air for a half an hour, accusing me of killing my husband….she may be my child but she’s as addicted to hospitals, attention and sympathy worse than any heroin addict is to that drug.

    Sold all the appliances.

    I’m devastated.

    Anyway, I have no choice. I have to go on. Oh, and she turned off the electricity in that house.

    A horrible, horrible person. And yeah, I wrote a book about it cause it was almost this bizarre when she was a teenager. Husband and I used to find piles of burned paper in closets where she tried to burn down the house. And much more….much more….which is why I wrote the book.

    But I’m still watching politics and it helps. But my legs are wobbly from this horror.

    I will share a kind of amusing story about the state dog of Delaware and how they watch me....they ALL watch me.

    I learned that the Delaware legislature named a Golden Retriever the official state dog of Delaware on Facebook.

    I do create a Blog post, weekly, on the activities of the Delaware state legislature....yes I do. And they all read it, yes they do. I complain about this or that and sometimes I even compliment for a good law. I follow the law through to signing....from intro to Delaware House on thru the Senate.

    Yeah, I need to get a life, but I do this and they all know me.

    So about the Golden Retriever....heh....well hey, I think Golden Retriever’s are fine dogs but first, why name an official state dog at all? And second, why the Golden Retriever?

    Somebody on Facebook said that it was a Golden because Governor Markell owns a Golden Retriever.

    A fact I shared in a Blog post in my self-righteousness. With a bit of sarcasm not that anybody would believe this of me. I said that what right does the Governor to name his own breed as our state dog?

    So I get an email, I am not making this up, from no less than the Speaker of Delaware’s House of Representatives, Rep. Pete Schwartzkopf.

    “Governor Markell does NOT own a Golden Retriever” was all it said.

    Heh. Well that’s the LAST time I will believe a Facebook post, you’d think I’d have learned this by now.

    But they watch me people.....they watch me.

    And they attack not doubt me. Delaware is one of the most corrupt states in the union, sadly.

    Morning AB, yon co-thread-participants,

    Thank you AB for reliably doing this thread every Sunday. Thank you Bray for Sunday wisdom. Thank you yon commenters for keeping me apprised of Sunday political talk show activities.

    I love that Donald Trump is going after Hillary, have you all heard? He’s been ranting on the campaign trail about Bill Clinton and his enabling wife. Wait until Trump gets into Benghazi. Pictures of tortured and dead Libyan Ambassador Stevens should be enough to shut that woman down.

    Of all the women in America, this is the best we can do?

    I have a lot of interviews coming up this week, connections I made at the state convention.

    But I pay a price for my Blogging and last week I learned an even more horrible fact.

    Seems when I purchased that house across the street from me, the one in which my daughter now lives, besotted with an addiction to hospitals, God be with her. She’s lost her daughter, her husband, her mother (ME) and two dogs. All taken away from her or she chased them off….but it seems that somehow my property tax payment for that property got mis-applied.

    I only discovered it when I went to pay my 2015 property taxes, for both my house and the daughter’s , and saw that they had my 2014 payment….well it wasn’t applied at all. I had to get the cancelled bank check, go down to Georgetown to get is all straightened out.

    Only I found out, last week, because I write posts about Delaware politicos NOT paying their property taxes, even to the point where they consistently tax intercepts to avoid such payments….but somebody, on another Blog, put my name up in big lights as also a non-payer of property taxes.

    It was just weird because the lady at the property tax office seemed to expect me, and, ladida she just applied the payment and wrote off the late fees.

    They’re coming after me folks….I might be paranoid, hey, I’d rather be paranoid than right about my suspicions. Because the people behind me took me to court for my fifteen year old fence being on their one year old property. When I went to court, THEY WON! The judge didn’t even look at my legal survey, legal….and further, they want me to pay their $5,000 in legal fees.

    Finally, there’s that stupid restraining order. I’m not going to bore with the story but I am no more a threat to my nutty daughter than the man in the moon. But they found me guilty and came after my gun.

    Yeah, I’m paranoid.

    But I am not going to be bullied. I do have to tear down my fence and for one year I honored that restraining order though my nutjob daughter constantly violated it.

    I don’t want to hurt my daughter, folks, she is totally gone. She needs to have a guardian appointed because she can’t take care of herself. So I don’t Blog about that situation.

    That restraining order gets lifted end of this month. I will then hire an attorney and sue every damn body who did these things to me.

    Where do I go to get my reputation back?

    Anyway….moving on because I am NOT a bad person. And no matter how much they try, nobody will turn me into a bad person.

    Am going to church this morning with Diane Feinstein, will be back later. Keep the thread going for me folks.

    And Happy Mother’s Day to all you Moms. My stepdaughter already sent me a nice message this morning. My daughter has neither a mother or a daughter.

    Heh. Wow....I am impressed at myself.

    So this makes me, now that it’s kind of later in the thread, share a personal reminisce.

    For this coming Tuesday night I shall be practicing to be a Cantor.

    A Cantor, in the Catholic church, is someone who stands at the altar and leads the congregation. I AM in the church choir and have been at this church for 11 years now and than some.

    I was just full of myself when I agreed to do it, at the behest and urging or our NEW Music Ministry director, best friend of Rev. Thomas Flowers and....heh.

    The story of the choir director....well I’ve mentioned it a couple of times on this thread but I shall not bore again. But he’s gone and it’s one of the stranger stories on the planet.

    It’s about me, a widow woman being forced to tear down my fence and pay the New Jersey jerks five grand for their legal fees. It’s my mentally ill daughter managing to get an undeserved restraining order against me and no I don’t necessarily blame her. I blame the system that her manipulate it. You can believe EVERY Delaware elected official had me at my most charming and folks, I can be charming as hell when I want to.

    But like me and Tom Petty say....I WON’T BACK DOWN.

    Anyway....heh....I’m thinking....SURE I’ll get up there in front of the church, in front of 400 or 500 people, and sing the responsoral, lead all the hymns.....oh please.

    WHAT THE HELL WAS I THINKING?? I have never sung a solo, ANYWHERE....not even Karaoke.

    Well I asked myself what the hell was I thinking when I signed up to go to the Republican thing? I asked myself what the hell was I thinking when I designed business cards and handed them out....calling myself a “social media maven.”?

    Yet I am moving forward, am mostly happy, and there was a fellow or two showing me an eyeball last night. Who knows, someday I might even meet a man that ain’t a priest.

    Anyway, thanks’s a true story and the truth is always purty.

    Yeah, I’m going to do my Cantor thing. Our new Choir Director is my Facebook friend, loves my writing and “likes” every political post I put up....even that bit about Kasich being on fire and my refusal to pee upon him.

    God has a plan for me, folks.

    Because weird stuff keeps happening to me.

    But carry on.......

    Wanna borrow my cat?

    Indeed cats ARE the best mole hunters, an animal specifically genetically designed to go after moles.

    If you ever played the hand under the blanket with the cat....well that's playing at catching a mole for a feline.

    Problem is my cats are indoor cats. But they'd desperately love to go and hunt moles. Indeed in our other house in Merryland the cats would get out and always bring us back a mole.

    I shall consider such natural enemies to the mole as it was my deceased husband who insisted on keeping cats indoors.

    Funny you should mention about the dachshunds. For one thing, I once had a dschhund and, indeed, he did dig up the moles, one time getting a live one and running around the yard like the hero he thought he was, the mole hanging from his mouth by his tail, screeching and screaming like....well like a dachshund had it hanging by its tail.

    BUT....I got an American bull dog....don’t know much about this dog, but I kind of think she’s a mole hunter. These dogs are known to be helpful finding mushrooms and such.

    So why not moles?

    We shall see.

    And how about Boehner calling Cruz Lucifer?

    Which is one of my favorite new shows by the way, the character of Lucifer played by what has to be the handsomest man on the planet.

    Ted Crus is, indeed, on many of the Sunday talk shows and the hosts are trying to trap him, in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.

    Chuck Todd tried desperately to admit he’d support Trump should Trump get the nomination.

    Martha Radditz asked Cruz if he ever laughed on the campaign trail, a kind of sneaky assertion that Cruz has little sense of humor, which, come on, is kind of true.

    But it has nothing to do with the price of eggs in China and they would not ask Hillary such a thing.

    Cruz is handling it all very well this morning, at least as I see it.

    I am sorry Mountain Dad. I just picked a state that our northern liberal Republican elite would consider a backwoods.

    But they think Sussex county is filled with pitch and tar and in the name of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost, they did have the state convention IN SUSSEX COUNTY!

    Indeed, in real cool Dewey Beach and yours truly had to park three miles a way but I did it and walked with my left leg only getting 50% of the blood it needs though the doc told me...”Hey if you can live with it, we’ll not have to operate.”

    So I dance and I walk and yeah, I can do this.

    Which is why I was able to attend as they usually have the thing up in Wilmington and did you know that Wilmington is now referred to as “Murder Town”.

    I’d move to Nebraska in a minute should such a thing ever be needed.

    Also, I did vote this past week. This primary was the national and was only for President.

    Up until the moment I stepped into that voting booth I’d been planning to vote for Ted Cruz. I been a Cruz supporter right from the start but like so many, my eye cast to Donald Trump and what the hell was that all about.

    Yeah, I kind of liked Trump. I know they call us dumbbells and let me tell you the anti-Trump people remind of the anti-ChristineODonnell people. Vicious nuts with their nemesis living rent free in their minds. I guess I liked Trump because I DO think he can do the art of the deal and also, I love his political incorrectness.

    But I felt there was no reason to change my vote from Cruz as he’s done nothing to upset me and I have not heard him tell one lie no matter what Trump calls him.

    Cruz....what ever the hell he was thinking, teamed up last week, even though he now tries to deny it, with Kasich.

    I cannot stand Kasich, a nothing-burger who no more should be up where he’s at more than Rubio, Carson....any of the others almost. If Kasich were on fire I would not pee on him.

    What the hell Cruz was thinking with this alliance...”You take Oregon, I’ll take Indiana”. STUPID STUPID STUPID.

    So came the time to push the button I pushed it for Donald Trump.

    Do not argue with me. If Cruz still pulls off the nomination I shall be fine with this and, indeed, I do like Carly.

    But that was the dumbest damn thing a candidate ever did and I’m not convinced I am the only voter who at the last minute changed their mind.

    Good morning AB, All.

    We begin by thanking AB for doing this thread, on to Bray for a contribution of weekly thoughtful wisdom, on to yon commenters who provide valuable feedback.

    I went to the Delaware state Republican convention this past Friday for the dinner and Saturday as a delegate.


    Well yeah I got personal stuff going on but I shall surprise you all by beginning with a blurb about applicable politics.

    We’ll not mention the leaking hot water heater and the toilet that won’t flush. Or the fact that I got them fixed, liberated and fashion-forward woman that I am. Or that I saw my plumber at the state convention.


    I am going to be writing all week about this experience, folks, on my Blog, because I learned so very much. So very, very much.

    On Friday I attended the dinner but there was a cocktail hour before hand. Indeed I went by myself, again, liberated woman that I am. There was only one male type of person that paid me any attention. He was the guy who came to join me in a drink at one of those cool stand up tables. We talked and turns out he goes to my church. After a bit I excused myself to mingle. He told me he only came over because he needed a place to set down his plate of food.


    The speaker was a Benghazi survivor and I was riveted. What a story, people. Turns out that the ONLY people who came to rescue those still living on that roof top was….guess? THE LIBYANS!

    Not a Swede, a German, a Norwegian….much less an American anywhere in sight.

    Shameful tale of our country folks.

    On Saturday we had the meeting and what a big mess.

    Bear in mind that Delaware is an interesting state, however small we may be, in that is was OUR state that began the revolution against the establishment with our infamous Christine O’Donnell versus Mike Castle primary.

    We no longer nominate candidates before the primary here in Delaware like the elite did with Mike Castle but we voted in Christine O’Donnell anyway, flipping them the bird….assholes.

    What we do now is “endorse” candidates at the state convention and I still do not know why the hell we do this with the primary in September but I got some thoughts on the matter.

    Also, our state chair, Charlie Copeland, I am told by reliable sources, is Mike Castle’s lover…..I am not making this up and cannot put this on my Blog post but I shall share the down and dirty with my fellow Freepers.

    The way the state “endorses” candidates led to crazy results, some complaints….all this amidst calm calls for “unity”.


    Sussex county is the pit of hell as the northern Delaware elite see it, filled with Neanderthals that should be sent to Nebraska or some other place of hell on earth.

    BUT…..heh, we got them beat in every category….93 from Sussex county, next up was 60 from Kent county and then they didn’t have enough delegates in attendance.

    Anyway, I will stop now as I know it is mostly of local interest but I must add, for my ego, that almost everyone in that convention knew me, some even gasped in awe not that I deserve this.

    Because I weekly do an analysis of the Delaware state legislature and guys, I make things happen.

    I’ll end with one such example.

    The Delaware legislature passed some kind of resolution to make giving student loans easier. Forget the verbiage they used but it annoyed me all to hell.

    I wrote about my nephew, a nice young man, now in his 30’s, who took advantage of student loans and got himself a bunch of bucks when he was back in college, over a hundred thousand dollars in fact. He went to a college in Spain for whatever reason, he merrily signed the loan papers.

    Now he is waiting tables and has lost his driver’s license due to unpaid student loans.

    So I wrote on my Blog that the Delaware legislature shouldn’t be encouraging student loans as those young people don’t quite see the future requiring a payback.


    This week, put up for vote…..all students receiving student loans must attend a financial counseling course.

    Or something.

    I’m not sure of the phrasing but hey, those guys listen to me, and they want me to write nice things about them.

    Ahhhhhh, my point being that citizens can more of an impact than I think they’ll ever know.

    I will be here all day, yon readers, keep me apprised with fine and wise commentary.

    Well below the dashed line is what I am supposed to do next Saturday.

    What I don’t understand is who am I supposed to vote for?

    Or maybe I don’t vote? I don’t know.

    RDC’s are “Representative District Chair”. I have no RDC as I am not a member of the executive board of the Sussex GOP. I am just a Blogger.

    But anybody can be a delegate, just go to be registered Republican.


    Please plan to arrive no later than 8:15 if you are attending the Prayer Breakfast am to allow adequate time for check-in. If you are not attending the breakfast, please plan to arrive no later than 9:30.

    Check in with your RDC immediately upon arrival, as they are responsible for reporting complete attendance as early as possible. Please note: Only RDCs are to approach the officer table. We are delighted to see you, but we need to do everything possible to maintain an orderly flow, as time is very limited!

    Direct any questions to your RDC so as not to slow registration or counting at the officer table. If your RDC is unable to help you, they will ask the Chair or Secretary themselves.

    Alternates - please remain alert to the registration proceedings from your seat on the floor, as you may be approached by your RDC or an RDC from another district to be assigned a delegate position. When this happens, please accompany the RDC to the line at the officer table, where you will be given your delegate badge. Please note that this is the only time any delegate or alternate should approach the officer table. It is most important that we keep this area as clear as possible in order to minimize confusion and maximize efficiency. Thank you for your cooperation.

    Enjoy, and thanks for your participation!

I was all prepared to speak to the manager and ask what kind of advice, re the restroom issue he was getting from corporate. Then I spied the restrooms - the have three. One is labeled ‘unisex’. Then I went on to enjoy a clean store full of useful household items. You ought to get out more,, you’d sound happier.

    You get paid by Target to write this sort of nonsense?

    First, a Unisex bathroom? I have my doubts. Second, now I laugh. My goodness dear Lord you got to enjoy a store full of useful household items! Wow, that's something very rare nowadays.

    I don't "hate" Target but you go on loving. I resent it's interference in that which is not their purview; their intrusion into my life.

    Sorry to bother you kind folks again but I got to share this. Since I already, thank God, upthread, told my story about daughter and dog. So below, in bold, is HER side of the story on GoFundMe. Note she never mentions locking dog in house or that she does NOT have custody of her daughter. And note all those PFA's she's got, just so y'all don't think I'm lying about this nutjob. And all the neighbors know she's nuts...go on.

    I have asked for help. I've begged for help. I am being tortured by my mother and ex-husband, and half sister who is sleeping with the ex-husband. My daughter is in the middle of all this. I know I am an "adult" but my daughter is even more powerless in this "Jerry springer" type life that these nuts insist on. I may be an "adult" by age standards, but if nothing else, I am a "vulnerable adult"I am a "vulnerable adult" being on disability. I am trying to take my life and power back but they don't want me to. I want to leave this house and stay over. I promise to with very hard in doing that but right now I have very little. Please help me, and thus helping my daughter. I do NOT want my mother to visit our have contact with her. She is sick. Please try to figure out if you can help me in any way. I swear that I will work very hard.

    I have stood on the corner of my road after my mom BIT me, with a sign that said the police said it was OK. Now, she allows my ex to break my window in my house. I AM NOT safe here. The system let's me down. I will go back to that corner and tell everyone the TRUTH. it isn't pretty. But it is mine.

    There is an ACTIVE PFA against my mother and my husband did have one but it EXPIRED. again, troop 4 in Georgetown says it's OK that she can destroy her (mine and hers) house (I LIVE HERE), FROM THE COMFORT OF HER LIVING ROOM! NO she doesn't have to fix it.

    Heh. Really, she thinks the cops should make me fix that window. Folks we got a country full of people like this....sad. THIS is exactly why she got a PFA against me. Do you know how much sympathy you get when you had to get a restraining order against your mother? Note she had THREE on her husband and that sister? She almost got one on her cause she LOVES PFA's (protection from abuse).

    And the gubmint lets it go on....from PFA's to hospital stays that now total in the millions. I am NOT making this up and yes Dateline is on it.

    The next objective after the transgender bathroom “issue” will be the mainstreaming of Polygamy followed by the “normalization” of NAMBLA.

    You are exactly right. We are having our feet peed upon while being told it's raining. This whole bathroom thing, and getting the nothing-burger Bruce Springsteen and the nothing-burger five and dime Target, and many other all about legalizing perversion.

    They don't care if George can't put on a skirt and pee in a woman's bathroom for his sensibilities of being born a woman in a man's body.

    They want George to be able to put on a skirt and pee next to my granddaughter that the pervert might sneak some peaks at her young body. When this sort of thing happens, Americans will finally rise up and revolt.

    So my niece, a loverly, loverly girl who I love dearly, sends me a message.

    “Trump is coming to Steven Decatur high school!”

    Now I am the political junkee in my family but my nieces know this. On a whim I responded “Do you want to go?”

    She writes me back, to my complete surprise...”I’D LOVE TO GO!”

    Go to hell, I didn’t even know the child liked Trump.

    Well SHE went to the Trump rally because I have issues walking and standing around due to clogged leg arteries. But she sent me updates from the rally, some, I was so impressed because she actually went to a political rally. Understand my niece is 50 years old, not a child, but she’ll always be a special one to me, who practically raised her.

    THEN Trump goes to Harrington Delaware, site of the state fair. Again I am invited to go but again, I get pics and updates and watched it on local TV.

    So no I didn’t, literally, go to any Trump rallies, come on guys, I am a Cruz voter.

    Well maybe not. Frankly I have not made up my mind. Although if Trump wins that primary Tuesday I shall vote for him the following Saturday because I am told that’s what I shall do.

    And y’all think I can flirt my way to the national convention in Cleveland?

    Soon the Sunday talk shows will start so allow me to do my rant on Target.

    It’s obvious me, and to people with brains, that this bathroom thing is supported by the Hollywood Gay crowd, come on, nobody out here is begging for the right to pee in the wrong bathroom.

    The goal is to make perverts the objects of “discrimination” because like the Munchausen nuts amongst us, we live in a society that is free with sympathy because we are a good people. And people like my daughter take advantage of that. Her and the transgender perverts, come on people, if I walk into a public bathroom marked for females and some pervert is in there with testicles and wearing a skirt, I’m going to make a scene.

    For sure I’d freak out if my granddaughter were to encounter such a thing.

    So now e got Target, heh, out championing the cause of the perverts and here’s what I notice.

    Target, for God’s sake, what the hell do they sell? They are nothing but a big five and ten cent store as we used to call it in our day.

    You ever see their commercials? They actually have unicorns and rainbows on some of them.

    As for their “products”....they show colorful plates and tablecloths....feel-good stuff that makes the viewer feel that the “cool” people shop at Target.

    I think Target is probably owned by a bunch of perverts and I’m sure that this store gets something from the breaks....I don’t know. But the store is a big zero-burger, not that I’ll ever shop there, EVER.

    The perverts want to take over the country, with the help of some big retailers.
