Every thinking person in America should be on the phone and on their websites/emails telling these people what we think about this balderdash of nonsense about the debt ceiling RIGHT NOW. You might have to find their House.gov website in order to email them. I did for mine. (Oh, you bet I told him, evenContinue reading “Contact Your Congressional Representative Right Now”

Just What IS A Discharge Petition?
For those of us who are learning the rather peculiar language used in government (especially in Congress and in law), I thought that perhaps some explanation would be good to have. Even if you have “heard of it” before, a refresher can be good for you. My father tried to teach us this stuff, butContinue reading “Just What IS A Discharge Petition?”
Democrats in Rural Areas
If you are old enough, you will remember this photograph appearing in LIFE magazine. The majority of you will not. That is John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who was still a Senator at the time, campaigning for the Presidency in rural West Virginia. This was a man who was born into great wealth just like Donald Trump.Continue reading “Democrats in Rural Areas”
Seriously? We’re Going To Make This Into Laws??
Helicopter parents are the absolute WORST nightmare of every teacher and school administrator alive. (And, to tell you the truth, quite a few employers. I kid you not.) These people are so overly invested in making absolutely certain that their offspring are NEVER offended, NEVER have to encounter any obstacles on their journey to adulthood,Continue reading “Seriously? We’re Going To Make This Into Laws??”
Here They Come Again!
Oh, yeah, they’re back at it again. If you are reading this, you will probably remember the uproar about the “Religious Freedom Act” that would have allowed people and businesses around the state to discriminate based on their “profoundly and deeply held religious beliefs”. Well, it’s back. SB 180. Same name, too. Randy Robertson D-29Continue reading “Here They Come Again!”
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”
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”
Let’s Have Some Real Justice Around Here Now
I am not too sure who needs to hear this, but there are quite a few people who do not know it. Whether they want to admit it or not, women are the ones who hold the real power in the world. Why? Because without us, there is no chance of humanity’s survival. Plain andContinue reading “Let’s Have Some Real Justice Around Here Now”
Religion Plus Government Equals Trouble On A Grand Scale
This is going to be a “quick and dirty” history lesson because to fully do it justice would take much, much too long. So just hang on, buckle your seat belts, and if you want more info, Google will take you there. It’s bloody, brutal, and endlessly fascinating. The Chinese tried it with their ImperialContinue reading “Religion Plus Government Equals Trouble On A Grand Scale”
