Elizabeth Warren is our cheerleader

and I love her for that!

"Never the less, she persisted...."

Rage on, Elizabeth!

Proof there's no global warming?

It snowed in Wisconsin today....

*sarcasm alert

*Breaking* NEW "American Horror Story" revealed and it's called "Resistance"


We're all living in this season together, America. We can get through this if we stay united and strong, continue to be active, and always resist.

*sarcasm alert

Actual quote on Facebook, I kid you not...

When asked if Sarah Palin would make a good POTUS:

"She is actualy moore qualified to hold executive ofice than hillary, and by the way she is a woman, you all do want a woman president right?"

Intelligence abounds with the deplorables!

I know, I know...I really need to stay off Facebook! Makes me crazy!

"Dear Big O"...letter from Jacoby Brissett to Barack Obama

"Dear Big O, I am writing you this letter to say thank you. I want to thank you for what you have done for this country – outside of politics. Honestly, I don't know enough about politics to judge what was good or bad, but I want you to know that when you said "Yes We Can" – a young man dreaming a dream from rough circumstances in Florida heard you. When you were elected President for the first time I was 16 and I watched you make the never-imaginable, attainable and I heard your cry to inspire hope. I used those words as motivation and saw your achievement as an opportunity and permission to work make my dreams come true too. You were the President of the United States – the highest office in the world. You broke a barrier and a stereotype proving not every minority has to use a ball to make a way. You've inspired a lifetime of dreamers young and old. Now, kids from my community – and my future children – will know that there is no dream too big – even they could be the President of the United States. As I prepare for the honor of visiting the White House, I will be there as a Super Bowl Champion – and I will think of you, mainly because the White House is a different, and better place because you lived there. I was a kid that came from nothing and I am living out one of the greatest dreams of my life. I am just grateful for the opportunity to walk on the same steps as you did, and to have a platform to inspire and I hope to leave my mark on history the way you did. One day, when I meet you, I will shake your hand and say thank you to your face but until then this kid is going to continue to dream until I can’t anymore. Thank you for blazing a trail, but for more than that, for leaving a paved road behind you for others to climb on. The biggest adventure you can take is to live the life of your DREAMS - Oprah Yes we can!! DREAM BIG!! Thank you, Jacoby Brissett P.S Holla at me to help you with your broke jump shot"


Bill Maher ended his show tonight with this song...

Happy Earth Day 2017....."there is no new frontier, we have got to make it here"

The Last Resort


She came from Providence, the one in Rhode Island
Where the old world shadows hang heavy in the air
She packed her hopes and dreams like a refugee,
Just as her father came across the sea

She heard about a place people were smilin',
They spoke about the red man's way, how they loved the land
And they came from everywhere to the Great Divide
Seeking a place to stand or a place to hide

Down in the crowded bars out for a good time,
Can't wait to tell you all what it's like up there
And they called it paradise, I don't know why
Somebody laid the mountains low while the town got high

Then the chilly winds blew down across the desert,
Through the canyons of the coast to the Malibu
Where the pretty people play hungry for power
To light their neon way and give them things to do

Some rich man came and raped the land, nobody caught 'em,
Put up a bunch of ugly boxes and, Jesus, people bought 'em
And they called it paradise, the place to be,
They watched the hazy sun sinking in the sea

You can leave it all behind and sail to Lahaina
Just like the missionaries did so many years ago
They even brought a neon sign 'Jesus is Coming',
Brought the white man's burden down, brought the white man's reign

Who will provide the grand design, what is yours and what is mine?
'Cause there is no more new frontier, we have got to make it here
We satisfy our endless needs and justify our bloody deeds
In the name of destiny and in the name of God

And you can see them there on Sunday morning
Stand up and sing about what it's like up there
They called it paradise, I don't know why
You call some place paradise, kiss it goodbye

I would love to have dinner with the Obama's

How cool would that be?

Hey Barack and Michelle...it's grilling season here in Wisconsin, I'll provide the beer, brats, potato salad, music...all you need to do is show up!

Even just thinking about that experience gives me a sense of calm I haven't felt since 11-8-16, false calm, I know, but I take what I can get these days...

What if Cinderella was a cooking slave instead of a cleaning slave

and her name was mozzarella?

So much negativity being spewed about Bernie

instead of coming together with positivity! The how's, whys and whodunnits are water under the bridge...move on people! We have a real live threat in the WH and ya'll are wasting your breath on Bernie? C'mon man....get a grip, he's not the enemy!

Imagine, if you will, standing in front of trump

and his entire cabinet sitting before you with a timed two minutes to say anything you wanted.

What would you say?
