Obama deserts women and blesses Biden's run for president. We expected him to support Hillary who deserves her place in history. I am disappointed in him, throwing women under the bus filled with old white males. You would think he would have wanted to help a woman be president, him being the first black president. I have been a Obama supporter all these years but today i am disappointed and a little pissed. Does he want to have America be run by the same old, white males that preceded his election. And she was such a fair loser when she lost the election to him, and even went on to be his secretary of state. Obama should have remained neutral until the choice is made by the American people as to who would be the Democratic choice for the main election.
Obama even looks sad, was he talked into it? Doesn't he know what he just did. Does he really think Joe Biden would be a good President. He's lived in the shadows for years, hardly heard anything from him. Today is a sad day for all women. Shame on you Mr. President.
President Barack Obama has given Vice President Joe Biden his "blessing" if he chooses to launch a White House run.

Don't you want to see a woman President? Hillary is the chance for women to move the nation forward, and to fix the 76 cents on the dollar problem.. Why not let a woman give it a try? What would your sister, mother, grandmother want?
Howard Dean, a former chairman of the Democratic National Committee, thinks Hillary Clinton's email scandal is largely being fueled by a "media feeding frenzy" - and the story itself has "no substance."

Rosie is a good mother. What Trump said about her  being a slob shows his disrespect to women A misogynist, who says he cherishes women, a Trojan Horse. Beware of a man who says nursing a child is disgusting. Do we want him to be president/? He's crude, mean, a bully and yet people flock to see him. It's a circus. 
TOMS RIVER, N.J. (AP) — The owner of the home where Rosie O'Donnell's missing teen daughter was found earlier this week has been arrested for allegedly having inappropriate online communications with the 17-year-old girl, according to authorities and the star's spokeswoman.

Why is CNN giving Trump huge blocks of time? Because he's a train wreck, you are like an ambulace chaser, running around with your cnn microphone. It's a shame you give him so much time. oh how funny you lost his signal for a moment had a chance to go in another direction but no you just went back to that fool. Does CNN know how foolish it would be to have this manic be President."We are going to be good< we are going to change things, all these false promises, with no plan. "I'm rich," so what, why is this idiot being allowed to make a mockery of our Presidential primary.
The town hall is as big as trumps head. his followers are un evolved, haters, sexists, racists and it shows the under belly of the American people. i am afraid that he will win and he would run rough shot over everything good in our country. He would get rid of Obama care, but has to plan to replace it, he would get rid of the IRS, get ride of all illegal aliens, build a huge wall and thinks Mexico would actually pay for it.
No this guy is nuts, and it panders to the mass of people who are angry, and mean and nasty. Shows the true colors of so many americans. Sad.

Story
Tagline
A retired baby boomer, fiercely independent, feminist, author, gardener, be here now proponent, funny, see's the good in everyone, political activist for the disabled and environment, writer to politicians, letters to the editor, counter culture lifestyle, Willamette Valley and Eugene lover
Introduction
I came West from the mid west in the early 1980's planning on coming back but as life sometimes does, a new path opened up before me. I love Oregon and especially the Willamette valley which is part of the temperate rain forest, sheltered by the Pacific we rarely see snow.  I worked nearly ten years as a forester all over Oregon and New Mexico doing timber stand inventories.  I lived in a tent with a group of mismatched vagabonds who taught me how to cruise timber and how to exist in the wild. Then I worked 35 years in service to the disabled and loved every minute of it.  I published three novels "From the Waters's of Coyote Springs" taken part from my journals when I lived in a tent doing timber surveys near Joseph Oregon, and "Felix and Eve" based in Gold Beach on the southern coast of Oregon, i lived a summer with an elderly man who was recovering from heart bi-pass surgery, our two completely different lifestyles kept it interesting and humorous, a set in his ways man and a live in the moment woman.  He told of the days when he worked for the notorious gangster Al Capone. "The thrid book "The Arrangement" is based in Eugene, a retired baby boomer now settles down and buys a house, a friend lives in his yurt in her back yard.  Once a year after they attend The Country Fair she travels to Catalina Island to visit an old friend and they relive the days of the counter culture generation. all three books are available onsmashwords.com/amazon.com/barnesandnoble.com, which can be read on e device or downloaded to a computer.
I spend my days gardening, writing another novel, doing activism for people with disabilities and writing my congress men and women. I enjoy the company of a wonderful friend who I've been roommate to for 22 years, keeping to my motto, "No more dogs or husbands"
Bragging rights
Lived in some of the most remote wilderness in Oregon and New Mexico. I published three novels, I survived two divorces, I lived on a farm in WI and survived some of the most hostile winters imaginable, keeping warm with wood heat. I survived a few mid-life crisis's. I always landed on my feet and found good people wherever I went.
