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”

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”

Now THIS Slate of Candidates Looks Like Georgia!

I am so proud of the Democratic Party in Georgia for the sheer diversity and QUALITY of the candidates in this race. It is unbelievably representative of the faces I see every single day in Georgia. Can’t say that about the other side. They look like Wonder Bread. They’re so white, it is blinding. Let’sContinue reading “Now THIS Slate of Candidates Looks Like Georgia!”

Arguing With Brick Walls

I’m seeing that our President is slowly coming around to this conclusion. Chuck Schumer is a die hard bipartisan guy, bless his heart. He wants everybody to go away happy. Nancy Pelosi on the other hand came to this conclusion sometime in the Trump administration. Talking to brick walls is a waste of time. There’sContinue reading “Arguing With Brick Walls”

Persistent, Passionate, and On YOUR Side

I went to and participated in the Candidate Forum hosted by the LaGrange/Troup County Chamber of Commerce and the Lagrange Daily News. My opponent was there, of course. I really don’t care for the things because you cannot get into the topics with answers that are only one minute long and ‘off-the-cuff’. I’m a moreContinue reading “Persistent, Passionate, and On YOUR Side”

Living Passively Gets You Gas Chambers

In 1933, the Germans did not want to get involved with the government squabbles going on. One side wanted to side with Great Britain, while one side wanted a very conservative form of government that excluded immigrants, the gypsies (Romany), and Jews because they said they took away jobs from German citizens. The gypsies wereContinue reading “Living Passively Gets You Gas Chambers”

“Woke” Who’s Woke? I’m Awake

The English language has some rather strange ways it does its verbs. One boy in my sibling’s class was asked to do the verb “to freeze”. He thought he had the perfect answer: “freeze, froze, frizen”. He was completely mystified when the class erupted in laughter. “Woke” is the simple past tense of “wake”. ItContinue reading ““Woke” Who’s Woke? I’m Awake”

Ballot Bingo!

I don’t know what your reasons for voting might be or even if they are on this particular card. I know I have a couple that missed this one. But I would be content with these, too. I could probably fill up another card, though. The point here is that whether you are a singleContinue reading “Ballot Bingo!”

NOW WE FIGHT, No More Nice

Democrats have historically played the role of the Mr/Ms Nice People. We have been the ones who bent over backwards to be civil. We were asked to be bi-partisan and meet in the middle. But the “middle” kept moving away from us, so we would oblige dutifully and shuffle along after it. Until finally, FINALLY,Continue reading “NOW WE FIGHT, No More Nice”

My Druthers List

What’s a “druther”? That’s what you would “druther” be doing instead of what you are doing. Now does it make sense? I’ve been grown for too long to think that just because I make a list that I’m going to be able to deliver on it Immediately if not sooner or maybe at all. BUT,Continue reading “My Druthers List”
