Unhyphenated American female, born and raised in the Empire State and who like most New Yorkers, in spite of being a registered Democrat, I voted for the candidate, not the party which meant voting often across party lines throughout the years.

Of course, I now have a grudge to settle after decades of being lied to and so I blog to right the wrongs and expose the lies.
