    I haven’t seen the new Star Wars yet, so it’s safe to say there are no spoilers in the SNL sketch that I wasn’t aware of from the trailers. Kylo Ren looks like another huggable badass, will he replace Darth Maul in my geeky heart?

    Glen Beck is getting desperate. You all remember that fake tweet that went around a few months ago, right? Well, Beck is bringing it up again and pretending that it is real. I think Glen’s hatred for Trump is driving him bananas. Really. It’s frightening.

    Desperate Liar – Glenn Beck Sends Followers Fake Trump Tweet – Trying To Prop Up Failing Ted Cruz…

    • Dora says:

      Here are some of Trump’s real tweets from that night. He was not a happy man!

    • DeniseVB says:

      I used to be a Beck fan, but he has fallen so far off the rails with his preachy doomsday rants, I kinda ignore him now. I do think he was right with his predictions of Obama back in ’08. The mideast has certainly imploded since then, and yes, the invasion has begun so I’m not sure why he hasn’t boarded the Trump Train? Afterall, DJT seems to be the only candidate noticing there’s a problem and wants to unpolitically correct stop it.

      • 1539days says:

        I can understand why Beck hasn’t gotten on board with Trump. Yes, Trump is saying the kinds of things that the other Republicans haven’t. However, this is all talk. Trump’s actions have been to financially back Hillary Clinton and increasingly desperate and ineffective attempts to make Barack Obama produce a birth certificate.

        The best predictor of future results is past experience. Since Trump has never served in government, he has less of a track record than Barack Obama. Trump may be the best president ever, but I can give a laundry list of reasons why I think he wouldn’t be. Beck may not be everyone’s cup of tea, but he may very well be worth hundreds of millions of dollars.

        • Dora says:

          Glen Beck knows the tweet is fake and is using it anyway. I hope the Trump Camp sues his buns off!!

        • DeniseVB says:

          *If* Trump is nominated, my return to Redstate in August will be weird since they have him on the path of turning us into Nazi Germany. Yoiks! (I haven’t checked the summer schedule, I believe this is after the GOP convention and will be inviting the nominee? Speak about hostile territory, lol.)

          • Ridiculous. I saw the Politico Mag article, and it decidedly did not pass the eyeball test. It was just a traditional vile prog way of trashing folks who are not high middle class, aka the “best and brightest”. The authoritarian questions were all about parenting. Note he did not break those questions down by race, because if he had…you can guess the rest. It’s a well studied truth that people in the top 25% of wealth holders have different parenting styles than the rest of us. The “social scientist” from UMASS Amherst just used that to cast aspersions on a specific, heavily working class group, and drive a wedge between them and the mindless drones that drive the voting patterns in the Dem party in case they get any ideas about jumping ship. #FACT

          • 1539days says:

            I’d say the story has some merit. Look at all the Scott Adams links Klown’s been posting. They’re all about Trump dominating and using psychology to make him the alpha. If Adams is right, people are following Trump because everything he does is from a standpoint of strength. He may not be an authoritarian, but authoritarians usually win by acting like Trump does.

          • lyn says:

            I agree with Lola. The mindless drones who tilt toward authoritarianism are Democrats, and these idiots who define Trump supporters also bring up the cult BS. Talk about projection. We’ve had the Obama cult for almost eight years, and how did that work out for our country?! Trump is the push back, cupcakes. Deal with it!

          • Myiq2xu says:

            “Authoritarian” is a much abused term, like “fascist” and “racist”. It usually means “people I don’t like”.

      • foxyladi14 says:

        Tru Dat Denise,
        And great post. 😀

  4. DeniseVB says:

    It’s just a tribute show for a sitcom director. My special snowflakes on FB think it’s a 2-hour reunion show for the cast of Friends. Sigh, my work is never done 😛

  5. DeniseVB says:

    There’s a debate on tonight ? Against the NFL playoffs?

  6. elliesmom says:

    Crash goes home today. My kitchen has been annexed by Golden Corral, the home of the endless buffet. She’s been eating like a bird, consuming her weight in food every day. Last night, after eating breakfast, morning snack, lunch, a late afternoon Happy Meal at Mickey D’s because she couldn’t possibly make it home without starving to death, dinner, and having a dish of ice cream after her bath, she got up about 10 and grabbed a banana, some graham crackers, and a glass of milk because morning was “far away”. Yesterday was a slow day. After I drive her home, I need to go grocery shopping and restock the fridge. I’m going to miss her. On our trip to the beach, we found a “mermaid’s purse”. She spent the rest of the afternoon searching for the mermaid so she could return it to her. I told her she could bring it home, but she left it on a rock in case the mermaid comes back looking for it. She’s going to hear about that years from now and laugh.

  7. DeniseVB says:

    Finally, a roller coaster designed to actually kill you.

    • Dora says:

      I just sent that to my sister-in-law. She loves roller coasters, but I bet she wouldn’t get on this one. 🙂

      • DeniseVB says:

        What’s funny about this, I love roller coasters (and because of their *warnings* I used to call them my annual physical) but I have a phobia driving on interstates. My dh started his military career as a fighter pilot, yet has a phobia of roller coasters! We humans are a weird wired species, eh?

  8. DeniseVB says:

  9. DeniseVB says:

    Can you imagine if a male presidential candidate joked about searching youtube for “nipple slips” ? Yeah, wouldn’t be that funny, am I right? (re: Hillary looking for Lenny Kravitz’s wardrobe malfunction). Obviously this writer is not a fan of HRC, aside from bias, it’s a pretty sad article just based on her trying to be hip.

    • taw46 says:

      If she had acted like this in 2008, I would never had voted for her.

    • leslie says:

      I have a friend who used to say that even though he was not particularly “hip or cool”, he didn’t care as long as he was a good father and role model. I wish he could say that to Hillary and others who’d rather be seen as a peer and friend rather than as a leader and even as a sage.
      I remember thinking all those years ago that maybe he was wrong. Maybe there was a way to be both a friend and a parent. Maybe there is, but I don’t want my president to be my friend. I want my president to be my president.
      Also . . . I think of all those photos of HRC partying while SoS and recall my discomfort as I viewed them. I couldn’t help but think those photos were making her look flighty and in-serious. I didn’t think they were a good idea then. I still think that.

      • DeniseVB says:

        Hillary should have insisted Obama fire these guys, but I guess she wanted the SoS gig too much to upset Teh Won ? This photo still irks me ….. War on Women my ass Hills.

  10. votermom says:

    Happy birthday to Anne Bronte, the most underrated of the Bronte sisters. This is partly due to the fact that although Tenant of Wildfell Hall was a big hit when it was first printed, Anne & Emily died a year later and Charlotte, the remaining sister refused to let Tenant be reprinted. She highly disapproved of the graphic subject matter.

    Trump – Things You Might Not Know About Him

    Trump, hopefully, is waking some of the RINOs up. The criticisms of Trump are, amazingly, missing something. They are lacking in negative stories from those who work for him or have had business dealings with him. After all, the employees he’s had and all the business deals he’s made there is a void of criticism. In fact, long term employees call him a strong and merciful leader and say he is far more righteous, and of high integrity, than people may think. And while it may surprise many, he’s actually humble when it comes to his generosity and kindness. A good example is a story that tells of his limo breaking down on a deserted highway outside of NYC. A middle-aged couple stopped to help him and as a thank you he paid off their mortgage, but he didn’t brag about that. Generous and good people rarely talk of charity they bestow on others. But as much as all this is interesting, the real thing that people want to know is what Donald Trump’s plan is for America. It’s funny how so many people say they don’t know what it is, or they act like Trump is hiding it. The information is readily available if people would just do a little homework; But, since most Americans won’t.

    1.) Trump believes that America should not intervene militarily in other country’s problems without being compensated for doing so. If America is going to risk the lives of our soldiers and incur the expense of going to war, then the nations we help must be willing to pay for our help. Using the Iraq War as an example, he cites the huge monetary expense to American taxpayers (over $1.5 trillion, and possibly much more depending on what sources are used to determine the cost) in addition to the cost in human life. He suggests that Iraq should have been required to give us enough of their oil to pay for the expenses we incurred. He includes in those expenses the medical costs for our military and $5 million for each family that lost a loved one in the war and $2 million for each family of soldiers who received severe injuries.

    2.) Trump wants America to have a strong military again. He believes the single most important function of the federal government is national defense. He has said he wants to find the General Patton or General MacArthur that could lead our military buildup back to the strength it needs to be. While he hasn’t said it directly that I know of, Trump’s attitude about America and about winning tells me he’d most likely be quick to eliminate rules of engagement that handicap our military in battle. Clearly Trump is a “win at all costs” kind of guy, and I’m sure that would apply to our national defense and security, too

    3.) Trump wants a strong foreign policy and believes that it must include the 7 core principles, and that American interests always come first. No apologies, maximum firepower, and military preparedness. Only go to war to win. Stay loyal to your friends and suspicious of your enemies. Keep the technological sword razor sharp. See the unseen Prepare for threats before they materialize. Respect and support our present and past warriors.

    4.) Trump believes that terrorists who are captured should be treated as military combatants, not as criminals like the Obama administration treats them.

    5.) Trump makes the point that China’s manipulation of their currency has given them unfair advantage in our trade dealings with them. He says we must tax their imports to offset their currency manipulation, which will cause American companies to be competitive again and drive manufacturing back to America and create jobs here. Although he sees China as the biggest offender, he believes that America should protect itself from all foreign efforts to take our jobs and manufacturing. For example, Ford is building a plant in Mexico and Trump suggests that every part or vehicle Ford makes in Mexico be taxed 35% if they want to bring it into the U. S., which would cause companies like Ford to no longer be competitive using their Mexican operations and move manufacturing back to the U.S., once again creating jobs here.

    6.) Trump wants passage of NOPEC legislation (No Oil Producing and Exporting Cartels Act – NOPEC – S.394), which would allow the government to sue OPEC for violating antitrust laws. According to Trump, that would break up the cartel. He also wants to unleash our energy companies to drill domestically (sound like Sarah Palin’s drill baby, drill?) thereby increasing domestic production creating jobs and driving domestic costs of oil and gas down while reducing dependence on foreign oil.

    7.) Trump believes a secure border is critical for both security and prosperity in America. He wants to build a wall to stop illegal’s from entering and put controls on immigration. (And he says he’ll get Mexico to pay for the wall, which many have scoffed at, but given his business successes I wouldn’t put it past him.) He also wants to enforce our immigration laws and provide no path to citizenship for illegal’s.

    8.) Trump wants a radical change to the tax system to not only make it better for average Americans, but also to encourage businesses to stay here and foreign businesses to move here. The resulting influx of money to our nation would do wonders for our economy. He wants to make America the place to do business. He also wants to lower the death tax and the taxes on capital gains and dividends. This would put more than $1.6 trillion back into the economy and help rebuild the 1.5 million jobs we’ve lost to the current tax system. He also wants to charge companies who outsource jobs overseas a 20% tax, but for those willing to move jobs back to America they would not be taxed. And for citizens he has a tax plan that would allow Americans to keep more of what they earn and spark economic growth. He wants to change the personal income tax to: Up to $30,000 taxed at 1%. From $30,000 to $100,000 taxed at 5%. From $100,000 to $1,000,000 taxed at 10%. $1,000,000 and above taxed at 15%.

    9.) Trump wants Obamacare repealed. He says it’s a “job-killing, health care-destroying monstrosity” that “can’t be reformed, salvaged, or fixed.” He believes in allowing real competition in the health insurance marketplace to allow competition to drive prices down. He also believes in tort reform to get rid of defensive medicine and lower costs.

    10.) Trump wants spending reforms in Washington , acknowledging that America spends far more than it receives in revenue. He has said he believes that if we don’t stop increasing the national debt once it hits $24 trillion it will be impossible to save this country.

    11.) Even though he says we need to cut spending, he does not want to harm those on Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security. He believes that the citizens have faithfully paid in to the system to have these services available and that the American government has an obligation to fulfill its end of the bargain and provide those benefits. Therefore, he wants to build the economy up so that we have the revenue to pay those costs without cutting the benefits to the recipients. He disagrees with Democrats who think raising taxes is the answer and says that when you do that you stifle the economy. On the other hand, when you lower taxes and create an environment to help businesses they will grow, hire more workers, and those new workers will be paying taxes that become more tax revenue for the government.

    12.) Trump also wants reform of the welfare state saying that America needs “a safety net, not a hammock.” He believes in a welfare to work program that would help reduce the welfare roles, and encourage people to get back to work. And he wants a crackdown on entitlement fraud.

    13.) Trump believes climate change is a hoax.

    14.) Trump opposes Common Core.
    15.) Trump is pro-life, although he allows for an exception due to rape, incest, or the life of the mother.

    16.) Trump is pro 2nd Amendment rights.

    17.) Trump’s view on same-sex marriage is that marriage is between a man and a woman, but he also believes that this is a states rights issue, not a federal issue.

    18.) Trump supports the death penalty. Trump believes that there is a lack of common sense, innovative thinking in Washington (Hmmm… looks like he believes in horse sense!). He says it’s about seeing the unseen and that’s the kind of thinking we need to turn this country around. He tells a personal story to illustrate the point: “When I opened Trump National Golf Club at Rancho Palos Verdes in Los Angeles, I was immediately told that I would need to build a new and costly ballroom. The current ballroom was gorgeous, but it only sat 200 people and we were losing business because people needed a larger space for their events. Building a new ballroom would take years to get approval and permits (since it’s on the Pacific Ocean ), and cost about $5 million. I took one look at the ballroom and saw immediately what needed to be done. The problem wasn’t the size of the room; it was the size of the chairs. They were huge, heavy, and unwieldy. We didn’t need a bigger ballroom, we needed smaller chairs! So I had them replaced with high-end, smaller chairs. I then had our people sell the old chairs and got more money for them than the cost of the new chairs. In the end, the ballroom went from seating 200 people to seating 320 people. Our visitors got the space they desired, and I spared everyone the hassle of years of construction and $5 million of expense. It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little common sense. On top of his saving years of construction and $5 million in expenses, he also was able to keep the ballroom open for business during the time it would have been under remodeling, which allowed him to continue to make money on the space instead of losing that revenue during construction time.

    19. Donald Trump’s entire life has been made up of success and winning. He’s been accused of bankruptcies, but that’s not true. He’s never filed personal bankruptcy. He’s bought companies and legally used bankruptcy laws to restructure their debt, just as businesses do all the time. But he’s never been bankrupt personally.

    20. He’s a fighter that clearly loves America and would fight for our nation. Earlier I quoted Trump saying, “I love America. And when you love something, you protect it passionately – fiercely, even.” We never hear that from Democrats or even from most Republicans. Donald Trump is saying things that desperately need to be said but no other candidate has shown the fortitude to stand up and say them. Looking over this list of what he wants for America I see a very necessary set of goals that are long past due.

    Before we criticize someone because the media does, maybe we should seriously consider what he has to offer, as it is important to know what each of our candidates to replace a President who has ruined us globally, and who has put us on a path to disaster! This is not an appeal to vote for Trump, only to give some depth of comparison, before this week’s debate.

    “Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn’t pass it to our children in the bloodstream. It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same.” . . . . . .Ronald Reagan

      Awesome! Thanks for sharing this.

    • DeniseVB says:

      That’s the Donald Trump I’m aware of all these years. There’s much to his charitable side that goes unreported. While the media and critics will try and follow his “money”, it’s hard to follow when your donating your properties (golf, hotels) to charitable orgs to hold fundraisers. Thanks for sharing driquana ❤

    • 1539days says:

      If I’m going to vote for a bunch of stuff that won’t happen, I should vote for the guy who says he going to pay off my student loans and make the banks pay my bills.

      • elliesmom says:

        Our kids had no loans. We paid their way. Will there be reparations? Hardly fair to penalize the people who planned for their kids to go to college. We could have had a bigger house, a new car more often, fancy vacations, but we saved for college instead. While our kids really appreciated it, if student loans are to be forgiven, that makes us a couple of chumps.

      • jeffhas says:

        Days, pleeeeese for real, keep the contrasting point of view coming!

        As much as I feel I’m moving in the Trump direction, it’s always good to have an opposing view, especially from someone you respect. I’m so glad people here don’t have to feel like they need to agree, how boring it would be if we all just agreed.

        Don’t ever change man! (Unless your opinion ‘evolves’)

    • Lildoggy4u says:

      What is it they say? You don’t risk your own money, you risk other people’s money. Trump may never have filed for personal bankruptcy but he’s wiped out plenty of other people’s money through risky ventures. All that sounded great but I know of at least one of those ventures personally where everybody except Trump lost their shirt.
      He’s not a bad man but he’s also not the golden child either. If all that you wrote was true I’d say he should be King not president.
      I like that he’s shaking up the system but I’m not gonna vote for him.
      He can’t say you’re fired to congress or the Supreme Court . Whoever is elected appoints 3 new justices. Trump hasn’t always been s conservative. He’s really not one now either.
      He’s a Wall Street tycoon.

    • swanspirit says:

      Thank you so much for sharing that, it was a great read. It really should be a web page and a mass emailing. A weapon of mass campaign instruction!

  13. Dora says:

    This is a wonderful description of the man that many New Yorkers know as Donald Trump.

    West Coast Choppers Official

    What I saw was a person that treated everyone with respect. Even the (Hispanic) guys in the mail room. He had coffee from the coffee machine and BS’d with them every single morning. Trash men and cops would stop him on the street

    • 1539days says:

      Wasn’t he the guy who dressed as a Nazi?

      • Dora says:

        I have no idea. Are you sure you’re not thinking of Prince Harry? 🙂

      • Underwhelmed says:

        Dude, seriously, what is your problem? Is there no scenario in which you might be wrong about Trump?

        • votermom says:

          It’s good to gave a resident skeptic, imo.

          • Underwhelmed says:

            Yes. It absolutely is. But when a good thing is revealed about someone, I think it undermines decency not to acknowledge that good thing. I mean, I loathe Obama a lot, but I’m still hugely grateful to him for changing up the law that means military dogs aren’t treated like widgets. That was a good thing he did, and that must be acknowledged. If we can’t acknowledge for the good things, we have no credibility when we excoriate for the bad.

          • jeffhas says:

            Yes please.

          • 1539days says:

            That wasn’t even about Trump. When I see Jesse James, I think Nazi scandal. I watched Monster Garage back then (and I knew about the marriage). That’s why I thought it was funny to use that endorsement.

        • 1539days says:

          I won’t be proven wrong about Trump until he’s been president for a couple of years. So I’m not changing my opinion in the next 10 months.

          • DeniseVB says:

            Oh, I hear ya Days. There’s never a guarantee how one will “lead”. I knew in 2008 how an Obama administration would “lead” and I was right too !! I knew Hillary was wrong joining up with the Unicorn and Rainbow administration too. That was really stupid.

            My worst fear with a Trump administration? That f**king OFA/OWS/BLM community organizing clown show that Obama’s built on our dime these past few years, will start burning down cities the day after Trump’s elected in November. Iran and the NORKs will nuke L.A. and NYC. Obama declares himself President for Life. It’s over for the USA as we knew her. Okay, I may be exaggerating, or am I ? (Is it Tinfoil Tuesday yet?)

          • Underwhelmed says:

            But then what do you say about the people who swooned over Obama, and refused to listen when his lack of track record and his shady connections were made public? The reverse applies. It’s no less counterproductive to cling to starry eyed adoration in the face of evidence that shows otherwise, than to refuse to admit any positives in a man you’re determined to hold is venal.

        I called the office bcause I had no idea what dates or what city to go to. Manchester is the city. Young man on th phone was so polite. He looked up airfair. I can’t leave until the 4th. Aifare is around 300 but I’m gonna look at buses. Megabus can ba dollar to NYC. If i can save 150 I’ll do bus. I took it in college many times. Have to figure out how to go from NYC to Manchester. No trains. Sadly.

        • DeniseVB says:

          Aren’t you in PA Tim? That state’s going to be a big playa eventually, jump on the local Trump Train there and save your money. Besides I think all the field offices will be making GOTV calls to the early states. BUT, if you can do it and want to spend the time, trouble and money, go for it ! Activism on a real campaign in a Presidential year is so intoxicating!

          • mothy67, says:

            I’m gonna do it. I suppot Trump and I am that cliched gay great uncle worried about a brats future. I owe her a fight for a future. Hillary is an abomination. I have to buy socks whn I go. I cannot remmber the last time I bought socks. I go into a store and come out with kids clothes. I am willing to fight. Trump seems best thing for my kid.
            300 dollars airfare not huge. Star Wars cost 90 and my mom said if I go she will buy me socks.

        • elliesmom says:

          NH is a fun state to campaign in. It’s all about “retail politics”. The folks expect to be personally asked for their votes. Even if they aren’t going to vote for your candidate, they are usually gracious about being asked. Many, many years ago when Gary Hart was running for president, he dropped by one of the malls to shake people’s hands. He was noticeably impressed most everyone shopping knew who he was. Folks from New Hampshire take their role as the first in the nation primary very seriously.

      Megabus is 29 dollars round trip to NYC. How do I get cheaply from NYC to Manchester, NH? If I can get a cheap bus or local trains I’ll spend xtra time. I commuted from Philly to New York via septa NJ transit for an entire semester.

      • elliesmom says:

        There’s a bus from South Station in Boston to Manchester, NH. Round trip is $25. The trains from New York (Penn Station) come into South Station.

        • mothy67, says:

          Thank you so much. I ran all the numbers. Flying is my best choice. Savings of 150 by doing patch work but it’s almost a day and a half in a chair. I have taken many buses overnight. I know me I’d get off the bus drunk. Some poor soul is always riding all night going home from a stretch toting a gallon of Vladimir vodka. I sit up all night drinking cheap booze mixed with Faygo talking to someone that has not talked sometimes ever. Strangers on a Train was dark. I find people just tell you stuff on buses. It’s like living in a short story.

    Bill Clinton’s hand trembles at Iowa rally ­ blames old age

    • DeniseVB says:

      He’s only 2 months younger than Trump, poor Bill’s been looking frail and pale for awhile.

        To me, he has looked bad since he went on a vegan diet. Or, maybe something else going on.

      Bill has been looking bad and getting worse for several years. Blaming old age is kinda weak; Al’s mother ran a 10k this weekend, got an age group award….she is 75.

    This is fun to dish over …. Celebrity homes in NYC …. and why I’d need to win a mega-lottery-powerball to be able to move there 😉

    Here’s a theory on Bernie Sanders. If Hillbots are right and she’s a super awesome debater, these buried weekend debates are actually hurting her. Think about this. By scheduling on weekends and during sporting events, the middle aged and older voters who mostly watch TV are going to watch more exciting stuff and not change their opinions. However, the Millennials who are less inclined to stare at a TV are more likely to watch replays online. The ones who might have thought Hillary was progressive and thought of voting for her are now seeing a real socialist who tells them they can have college for free and the banks are the reason they’re degree in social work can’t get them a 6 figure job.

    If they are illegal how can they be law abiding? Makes no sense. I believe Rubio just killed any chance he had. He is finished!

    I’ m going. I ran all the numbers. I have to fly. 325 round trip. Cheapest bus manipulation I could do was 159. 20 hours there 25 back. I figure 700 for the week. I am so excited. I did this with Hillary in 2008. I was there. Hours on the phone. Walkin door to door. . It’s work, but as I announce regularly I will do this for my brat.

      While I won’t be working for Trump, it sounds fun. Have a good time.

    • taw46 says:

      Yay, I always thought working on a campaign would be exciting. Can’t wait to hear your daily reports. As a bonus, maybe you will get to meet Trump!

    • DeniseVB says:

      Yay you Mothy ! I’ve been playing on the Amtrak site, I used Pitt as your home station, but didn’t try the multi-city, nothing direct to Manchester, but I bet a Pitt to NYC to Manchester might be doable. Great train sales for that time of year. Or are you in Philly? Even better deals.

      Keep us informed. I like to help 🙂

      • mothy67, says:

        Thank you. I ran every bus train combo. 159 was my best.20 hours one way 24 hours back. I’ll fly. I so look forward to triumphing a man that gives me a sense of hope.

    I think you should contact Trump campaign and offer your services. I think I was only selected because I was so angry with Fox news calling him a joke. I was so angry I made a donation. He was not taken seriously. And i said here’s 25 keep on keeping on.
    NH will not be fun. I can’t pass it up.

  23. mothy67, says:

    Duh I mean the long hours of phone calls will not be fun. I expect the end result to be amazing.

      I’ve phone banked NH. West Virginia was more fun, but I didn’t find NH to be tedious or boring. The folks in WV had a lot of fun teasing me about my Boston accent and told me some great hillbilly jokes when I told them my grandfather was a WV dairy farmer. The folks in South Dakota were heading out to vote for Hillary in the primary just as the Obama folks were calling them to tell them Hillary was dropping out of the race. Lots of teary older ladies who were upset they were being denied the opportunity to vote for the first woman president. That was a horrible day to phone bank.

      Have fun, mothy! I bet you will have a blast!

    I got an email from netlix saying Gra. ssi Next Class now streaming. Why is every preteen show filled with homosexuality. I am gay and it has not been an easy journey but kids tv in my opinion should not be gay gay gay

    • elliesmom says:

      While I believe most gay and lesbian high school students already know they’re homosexual even if they’re in denial, I’m not sure most middle school students can separate friendship crushes from sexual desire. I don’t think we should keep them totally sheltered from the idea they have gay and lesbian classmates or that they may be homosexual themselves, but a steady stream of TV shows featuring homosexual kids near their age leads them to make decisions about the sexual preferences of their friends and classmates based on facts not in evidence. Fears of being ridiculed for being gay or lesbian keeps a lot of kids from forming the close personal friendships with kids of their own gender that make our lives fuller and richer. Two guys who share a lot of the same interests and like to hang out together are now a “bromance”. Girls used to hug and kiss each other and hold hands in my youth, but not much anymore. My BFF and I tell each other how much we love each other all the time, but we’re OK if the world thinks we’re a couple of old lady lesbians. A couple of 12 year old girls wouldn’t risk it. Maybe in time kids won’t care, either, but right now they do.

      • votermom says:

        That is sad, isn’t it? Girls typically go through a phase of being very possessive about their best friends – there’s nothing sexual about it, but these days I guess they think it is.
        My younger kid thinks that if she is not sexually attracted to anyone it means she is asexual. I told her “you’re 14, I’m pretty sure it just means you’re normal.” But calling people normal is a micro aggression I think.

        • DeniseVB says:

          When I was 14 in the 60’s we girls practiced “kissing” at slumber parties just in case any of us got a “real” boyfriend. 😛 Now that my twin grangirlies are close to that age, I tell my son, keep them busy, busy, busy. And since he’s a former 14 yo boy, he does 😉

      • mothy67, says:

        I want to know if I am an idiot because as a gay man I ache to see on tv normal shit for my kid. Am I a monster because I like Roseanne and Cosby? Every show for teens has a gay character. I’d rather not see in bed kissing with any sex combo if the show is directed at kids. I have read it all and want my brat to process sexuality in a healthy “SHAMEFUL” way. I never want shame , i want to be friend but I also want to be asshole.
        I got a double whammy. I was in grocery store and saw my kids best friend s mom. We had empty chat which always leads to college. She has five by birth kids. I have one she told me her oldest is obsessed with going to Purdue. I love Purdue but it just keeps showing up.

    • votermom says:

      I just watched Against the Sun on streaming. It is a true story about 3 airmen who were adrift at sea on a lifeboat for 34 days in 1942. It is a great little movie.

    • Myiq2xu says:

      If they remade Friends today at least one of the cast would be gay (Chandler) and another would be black.

      At some point PC becomes propaganda.

    It could explain Bill’s frail condition? /snork
