  • They Get It, They Just Don't Want To
    on Jan 3, 2017 in Democrats Trump
    The new administration hasn't been sworn in yet.  Rosie O'Donnell tells us we have three weeks to stop Donald Trump.  Not that anyone should care what Rosie O'Donnell says or thinks.  The only reason she gets a mention is her "celebrit...

  • Obama ~ One Last Rant
    on Dec 30, 2016 in Disdain Obama Trump
    I have never known of a more sore loser than Obama.  He never was a class act from the very beginning.  One hoped he would grow as he got into the job but he never did.I don't quite understand how his favorables remain so high.  Maybe...

    on Dec 29, 2016
    I've been at this a good many years now.  I'm wondering if it's time to hang it up.Dogwalk Musings began as just that.  I wrote about things I thought about while walking my dog.  It could have been about anything.  Like the surpr...

    on Dec 19, 2016 in Hope Transition Trump
    Okay, it's official now.  Trump got his electoral votes and the fat lady is singing - even if it's the blues.Now, let's get on with trying to make this President-elect and his administration successful. I've got acquaintances on Facebook who are...
  • What's Missing? Senior Citizens!I thought the months preceding the election were a gut wrenching roller coaster but it was nothing compared to this transition period.Yes, I've been watching the celebrity circus coming and goings from Trump Tower.  I find it just as gut wrenchi...

  • Thankful For What?
    on Nov 21, 2016 in Media Thanksgiving Trump
    As we head full steam toward Thanksgiving Day I know I have a lot to be thankful for.  I'm still here for one.  I have my husband , my home, family and friends.  There is always food on the table and warmth in the house.  And this...
  • We DO Have Choices
    on Nov 14, 2016 in Post election Protests Trump
    I've been politiced out for some time as you may have noted from my lack of posts.  I took a total break a week before the election, voted my absentee ballot and headed for the New Mexican mountains to search for petroglyphs. All good things, ho...
  • Which Is More Scary?
    on Oct 31, 2016 in Clinton Trump
    This election cycle is beyond belief.  We have probably the two worst candidates we have ever chosen seemingly intent to self-destruct yet expect us to happily support them in the voting booth.So really, which is more scary?This...orthis?Wow. &n...
  • Trump or Hillary - Grim
    on Oct 15, 2016 in E-mails Hillary Trump Wikileaks
    "It's no longer what sort of man is Trump but what sort of people are we?"  I read words to that effect on a blog recently. It's a question worth asking but I'd include Hillary in the equation.To feel the same you probably need to be following t...
  • Republicans ~ Pure As The Driven Snow
    on Oct 9, 2016 in Trump Vulgarities

  • Has Old Rude And Crude Finally Done It?
    on Oct 8, 2016 in Rude and Crude Trump
    Rude and crude hardly explains Donald Trump.  The latest reveal of this fact should come as no surprise considering what we've seen leading up to this point.  The only difference is this particular revelation is a bit more crude than the on...
  • Amoral Hillary Is Not Entitled
    on Oct 2, 2016 in Hillary
    I'm one of those detested political animals who claims no party loyalty.  I believe high office, the governance of our country, deserves more; it deserves the best people that can be found regardless of party.That's one reason I do not understan...
  • Trump - The Selfish Man-Child
    on Oct 1, 2016 in Behavior Trump
    This election cycle has become a regular soap opera.  You end the day wondering what Trump is going to do in the wee hours to delight his opposition.  He never disappoints.Actually, I'm very angry with him.  He has been given the oppor...
  • Are There Any Political or Media Adults In The Room?
    on Sep 29, 2016 in Behavior Clinton Trump
    Seriously, I'm beginning to wonder if there are any adults in politics and the media.  Now I know that's unfair because there are, though few and far between it would seem.When the Director of the FBI, as compromised by politics as he is, is war...
