Voter Registration-The Nuances

Most people, me included before I got into this political arena, just assume that anybody can sign up to vote. Not true. Now that will come as reassurance to those who have mistakenly thought that immigrants and foreigners could just walk in and vote in their community. Also not true. Let me give you someContinue reading “Voter Registration-The Nuances”

And We All Thought Playground Bullies Were THE WORST!

Who knew? I know I sure didn’t. The boys of NeverNever Land thought that Peter Pan was bringing Wendy to be like their own little “mom” to put them to bed at night, kiss their boo-boo’s, and bake cookies. (Tinkerbelle didn’t think much of the idea.) Elmer Stewart Rhodes will be sentenced sometime in theContinue reading “And We All Thought Playground Bullies Were THE WORST!”

Remember This Dude?

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 toContinue reading “Remember This Dude?”

Bass Ackwards

That was my grandmother’s phrase for something like this when she wanted to use profanity and knew she couldn’t as the wife of a very prominent deacon in the church. (Grandma was a pistol, let me tell you. If you’ve ever seen The Beverly Hillbillies, you’ve seen a version of her. Granny Clampett was theContinue reading “Bass Ackwards”

Learning To Receive

As humans, we are geared to be the ones who give to someone else. It just feels odd to be the one who accepts something when you have no possible way of giving a gift back or doing a favor in return. It’s why it is so difficult to fundraise for charities, political campaigns, orContinue reading “Learning To Receive”

Christian Nationalism

EXCELLENT blog post on the topic. Just stumbled across this one. People have a hard time with that ‘label’ and I don’t blame them a bit. It is a concept that does sort of resist wrapping your mind around. The fundamental truth of it is this: it is Nazism wrapping itself in a veneer ofContinue reading “Christian Nationalism”

Electric Gratitude!

Now there’s a concept that the people who don’t like “wokeness” will really have a time with! They’re always big on how if poor people were more grateful for what they were getting, they would take better care of their homes, cars, clothes,…and they would last longer and so on so forth. Sometimes I getContinue reading “Electric Gratitude!”

“Brown’s Critical Race Theory (CRT) column is right-wing propaganda”; The Citizen; 11-17-22

Jack Bernard writes frequently and I read “some” of what he writes. Quite honestly, I have so much to read that it is not the quality, it’s the quantity! I’m doing good to read what I do. Sorry, Jack. I do what I can. Any old how, the numbskulls who rant about CRT this andContinue reading ““Brown’s Critical Race Theory (CRT) column is right-wing propaganda”; The Citizen; 11-17-22″

Wolves Hiding In Plain Sight

Some Georgians can start voting this week. I’ve already gotten my mail-in ballot and will put that back in the mail ASAP. I have no intention of allowing my vote to go uncounted. Neither does my husband or his 100 year old mother. We vote. Vote is a verb which, in case you’ve forgotten, isContinue reading “Wolves Hiding In Plain Sight”

A Chief Justice Who Isn’t So Chief

Please be aware this is only my opinion. I have always had an abiding interest in all things in the law including the SCOTUS. I am NOT an attorney. C.J. John Roberts is and always has been a conservative judge. Some of his opinions I haven’t particularly agreed with, but some I have. He tendsContinue reading “A Chief Justice Who Isn’t So Chief”
