Mad Grrrls

I’ve been gone awhile. Got sick of hearing myself rant. But this election has called me back.

Donald Trump said, “Hillary wants to abolish, essentially abolish, the Second Amendment…if she gets to pick, if she gets to pick her judges, nothing you can do, folks. Although the Second Amendment people, maybe there is, I don’t know.”


Tom Friedman wrote in  August 10 New York Times: “And that, ladies and gentlemen, is how Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin got assassinated.”

Donald Trump backtracked, saying he meant the power of the NRA at the voting booth, but Darrin Bell had a great cartoon in the Washington Post showing the fallacy of that claim–are judges chosen before an election, or after?

My favorite response came from Elizabeth Warren, who wrote on Twitter: Mr. Trump “makes death threats because he’s a pathetic coward who can’t handle the fact that he’s losing to a girl.”

Go Grrrls!

  1. Great to have your voice out there again, Norma. That was a scary op-ed by Tom Friedman — the /Press Democrat /published it today.


  2. I wondered what happened to you! Now Hillary and Obama are the founders of ISIS. They are undoubtedly responsible for WWII also.

    I just tried to change my email address at wordpress, but was unsuccessful. It is now .


  3. The other thing about what he said that proves he was speaking about doing harm, was when he said it would be “horrible” …if his intention was to rally voters to vote for him, he would not describe that as “a horrible thing”.

  4. Bravo, Norma. Nona


  5. Brilliant. Still would have liked it if she chose Bernie for vp running mate. Sending love to you both from the Olympic penninsula

  6. Ms. Watkins, I’m truly delighted to know that you are still alive and kicking–undoubtedly with the same lovely legs of two years ago!

    Regret that we can’t discuss politics!! (and I always thought you were reasonably rational, for a girl) Realized recently that my prayers relating to DC are going unanswered. Please, Lord . . . . Since we last communicated I have acquired a rather comfortable little townhouse in Raleigh, NC. Finding more time to visit with baby daughter and grandchildren. Taking youngest grandson up to Appalachian State U today to begin his freshman year. To coin a new phrase:”Time flies when we are having fun.” Is your son still living in Asheville?

    I’m also recalling fun days spent as a paratrooper at Ft. Bragg (located near Fayetteville) a few years ago. Yes, I know that you also enjoy a community bearing the same title. Named for the same general!

    Take care, and try to behave yourself!


    • Dear Ken,
      First boyfriend ever.
      Yes, Thomas, my youngest is in NC, although not Asheville. He runs the Ugly Dog Pubs in Highland and Cashiers if you ever get up that way.
      All well here in the western Fort Bragg (Although Black Lives Matter did urge the Mayor to change the name. He agreed he might remove one “g”).

  7. YAY! You’re back! I love reading your rants!

  8. 100 per cent right! I can’t believe the times we are living in.
