SEXISM, 2020.

Friday, March 6th, 2020

“I hate the sound of her voice.” A male relative’s critique of presidential candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren, November, 2019.

“She reminds me of my mother!” A Democrat and friend of a relative who voted for President Trump, 2016.

I have watched smart women in their 20s dumb down for their boyfriends in the past year!

I am already numb with exasperation, after

Writing. Just. This. Far.

Stay. Tuned.

While I take a break on my patio to breathe some salty air.

3 Points:

I. Bloomberg is not the savior.
II. Dems are screwed in November unless:
III. The Media, the voters, and the candidates realize that we are in new territory since Trump was elected.
1. Do not infantilize the Democratic candidates for President by making them raise their hands.
2. The moderators better make Trump raise his hand.
3. The media better find a way to watch the debates for those of US who do not subscribe to cable!

January 19, 2020 Comment to NYT’s columnist Maureen Dowd

DHC | Hillcrest, CA

I almost gave up on Ms Dowd after last weekend’s column, having been a fan for years. I’m happy I hung in there for this weekend’s column, though. It is difficult for me to even read Mr Starr’s name, much less witness him being thrust back into another Impeachment trial. A more despicable, morally compromised man cannot be found in the country. Then add Dershowitz into the sordid mix and we have, oh yes, Trump to thank, yet another poisoned pill who is intent on debasing and degrading our country to the point where it will take a generation of hot showers to wash off the stink and lies forced upon America by jowly white men who cannot fathom giving up power, cannot imagine not being in the news, their mugshots about to be displayed, once again, on the bedraggled American soul as the trial begins, the trials they cannot end.

Trump, the Sniveling Coward

Trump has turned the Presidency into a vile and reprehensible reality TV show and as a result, our country, my country, where I was born 64 years ago, has turned into a mockery of the nation I once knew. Born in 1955, I have now lived through three of the four Presidential impeachments. Make of that what you will. But this President is so lacking in morals and standards of decency and is so wrapped up in misogyny that I fail to see how we will ever recover. Trump is a sniveling coward who gets his revenge on Twitter and in front of hand-picked supporters. He wouldn’t last 10 minutes on the battlefields that this country has fought for ourselves and our allies. He doesn’t know what a diplomat is. His Tweeting from inside the safe walls of the White House, besmirching Ambassador Yovanovitch who has dedicated her life to diplomacy, for this country, is in itself reason to have him removed from office. For the sake of brevity, I will not further comment on the Republican sycophants who lap his verbiage up like warm milk except to say that they too should be removed from office.

Russia has something(s) on Trump and always has. They have something on Graham and the rest of the Republican leadership. Trump has turned over Syria and Turkey foreign policy to the Russians. Where will it end? I never imagined my country would be destroyed by a reality tv personality and a bankrupt businessman. I will soon be 65 yo and I don’t know what to do about any of it.

Renee Zellweger owned her portrayal of Judy Garland. I could not take my eyes off her. She belted out the tunes herself. The scenes with her two fans, who comfort her in the beginning of the movie and help save her at the end, are stunning.

These days, with streaming and episode drops once a week, it is a pleasure to watch a two hour movie that grabs the heart, holds the heart, and releases the heart ~~ in the end.

There is a large, shell-shocked constituency in the country (I count myself as one) that has been paralyzed by Trump’s behavior, a constituency that now will feel like Pelosi popped the cork on compressed rage & anxiety and released the stagnant, mind-numbing pressure of living in our country and watching Trump, day after day, demean and destroy our values and institutions, piece by piece.

That’s how I feel, anyway.

Fosse/Verdon ~~ Sam Rockwell/Michelle Williams

Michelle Williams and Sam Rockwell made my toes vibrate, my fingers play rocking chair arms piano keys. They carried me with them through the performances, my misplaced tap shoes keeping the beat in my feet.

Luke & David

Happy wedding anniversary to my husband, Luke, and to me, married in the “Summer of Love” in San Diego, California, on 08/09/08. 11 years married, coming up on 36 years together come November 15.

Love and laughter, with a bunch of hot and sexy, that’s what it is, that’s what it has been. Oh, it gets better every day.
