About Me

I am 54, retired teacher and illustrator, life-long dem., activist, union member. Also I do not use social media and I'm technologically retarded. I love dogs, rock music and swearing (alot).

I have a dilemma and need some suggestions.

I am going to die in a few years (now this isn't a woe is me, boo hoo rant) and have decided what I am doing with all my stuff. The only thing I can't decide is who to leave my small but very good record collection to. I don't want to sell them or leave them to anyone else who might end up doing that. I really love my records and if I sold them as an entire collection or individually on ebay I would be able to get thousands of dollars. I have rare ones, originals, complete artists' libraries, etc. of rock music mostly from the 60s and 70s. My family and friends either aren't into this type of music or if they are I don't trust them NOT to sell them. I want someone who really appreciates the actual physical record and cover and the music as much as I do. I met someone at the supermarket while I was wearing an old Pink Floyd t-shirt and posed this dilemma to him. He had this problem himself (his collection is much bigger than mine is) and he said that he's going to have them melted into an urn to keep his ashes in. That hadn't occurred to me but I don't really want to do that myself. Any ideas?

Someone with plans to kill the fake prez was arrested at tRump Hotel.

He "wanted to be a Timothy McVeigh " and someone alerted the police so they got to him and his assault rifle before he could use it. This was just on CNN at 4:00. I have to add that it was NOT Kathy Griffin.

Hillary is on MSNBC speaking at a tech conference.

She's discussing tech and politics. She discusses this important issue yet the fake prez doesn't ever mention it as if it didn't happen and no longer is a problem. Even though the election is over the Russians are still influencing our democracy through tech and we need to address this very important issue. They're 10 years ahead of us in internet warfare!

What is a rough estimate of actual liars vs. sincerely ignorant Repub when dicussing Russia?

I guess it's 50/50%. Half of them believe this BS "no there there" and half are lying through their teeth like Kellyanne. She told Morning Joe that she needed to take a shower after praising the Donald for 10 min. after the cameras were turned off. Do any of the pundits REALLY believe this crap?

Picture yourself and your life 1 year ago...how does it compare?

Do you think people in other countries know that we hate him and are embarrassed by him?

I don't have contact with many people in other countries and I was hoping that they don't think we support this idiot.

WE MUST HAVE AN INDEPENDENT COMMISSION NOW! Call your congressmen

(202)225-3121. There's a bill in congress that needs to be signed to get an independent investigation started besides a special prosecutor. Congressman Engel was just on MSNBC with another congressman. Mueller and the FBI are limited in many ways. Several dem reps in the House are pushing for a commission like the one after 9/11. The US citizens will know what's going on. Also, we need to trust our government in the future and know that Russia will get punished and not repeat this BS espionage and hacking.

"The trip was a great success", the Donald just tweeted.

I guess if you don't count making a deal with the Saudis who fund terrorists, having your wife pissed off at you, a pope that found someone even he wants to break a commandment for, shoving your fat bully body to the front of a NATO photo op after insulting them, trying to arm wrestle other countries' leaders, etc it was a HUGE success, the HUGEST!

Bannon has been back a few days...what's going on with his agenda?

Here's how you can stop the budget from passing in 3 easy steps...

You can call any and all senators without living in their state. This also works for congressman. I have called all 100 senators 3 times so far and about 100 congressmen using this method. It's fast, easy, and works!
1. Google the list of all the senators:www.senate.gov/general/contact_information/senators.
for the 115 congress. All their names numbers, addresses,email info is there. Wash CDC offices and local offices.Directory for House Reps:www.house.gov/representatives. Their districts are also listed.
2. Google any city in the state (senate) and the district (house) and Google the public library in that city. Write down the address, zip code, and phone number with area code.
3. Call the staffer and tell them that you are a constituent. If they ask for any info to back it up just give them your city and zip. If they want more info say the phone number and address. They never LOOK it up to validate it.
Be polite but sincere and keep it short. This goes for any issue you are calling about. I am a passionate person and it comes in handy when I speak with a staffer, especially if I am upset or desperate. Tears work well too (mine have always been real tears).
I can call one every 5 minutes. RESIST!
