He actually isn’t anybody in particular. The legend is that he was first drawn sometime around 1812 as a stand-in for the federal government during the War of 1812. Assuming that is true, he’d be 210 years old. Doesn’t look too bad for such an old geezer. But he’s been pointing that finger, trying to recruit men for the military, being fat shamed by the public for various reasons, ploughing fields, rolling up his sleeves for the industrial push for the war effort in WWII, made into an infant, and even made into various other guises for other reasons. He’s been useful though.
Not that I think anyone reading something I write would actually DO such a thing, but they can remind other people of the choice that they have.
It is also a reminder that NOT VOTING is a vote for the Republican and you certainly do not want to be guilty of THAT sin against our country.
We all know the Senator Warnock is very qualified to be in that office and that he needs to be there for the next six years. We also know that having him there will make Senators Manchin and Sinema much less of a threat to our efforts in the Senate and virtually guarantee judicial confirmations for at least the next two years. Maybe more if we continue to hold it in 2024. Senator Ossoff isn’t due to run again until 2026.
The other thing we know is that Walker is NOT EVEN A RESIDENT OF GEORGIA. He’s paying taxes on a house in Texas that is legally on file as his “principle place of residence.” If that’s so, then he shouldn’t even be RUNNING for the office. You are supposed to reside in the state you represent. He has NEVER actually had residence in the state. Not even when he played for UGA. Students don’t have legal residence.
We also know about all his other disqualifications and lies. So why the Republicans even nominated him? Because he’s a broken black man who is easy to tell what to do. He’s the perfect caricature of the Black slave that they all secretly want-big, dumb, biddable, has mental problems, sometimes violent, but generally speaking, you can get him to do exactly what you want him to do. And they don’t care if he runs around with all the women getting babies all over the place. That just fits their image of what all black males are like anyway. It’s wrong, but they don’t care. Their attitudes infuriate me. I know better. I also know that THEIR males do the same thing and they look the other way. That pisses me off, too.
Make sure you vote starting today, November 28-December 3 or on December 6. Michelle Obama is right. We have to vote….like our lives depend on it. Like our country depends on it.
BECAUSE IT DOES.
