The entire nation has known for YEARS that Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton is bad news. He is one of those people you think of when you look up the word in the dictionary. He’s that bad. What is the puzzlement is that it has taken so long for the people of Texas to DOContinue reading “In Texas, If You Are Going To Be Corrupt, You Have To Be REALLY Corrupt”

Contact Your Congressional Representative Right Now
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?”
Please, Would Somebody Inform Sam Alito & Clarence Thomas That We Do Not Need “Gods”?
For the love of all that’s holy, these two are really out of control. This last dissent of Sam Alito’s really proves that statement. In it, he rakes the other conservative justices, but particularly Amy Coney-Barrett over the coals for not backing him and Thomas on the abortion drug stay. Well, ex-cuuuuuse me! I amContinue reading “Please, Would Somebody Inform Sam Alito & Clarence Thomas That We Do Not Need “Gods”?”
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?”
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”
Desperate Wannabe Despot
Donald John Trump Senior has officially declared his candidacy for the THIRD TIME for the Presidency of the United States of America. God help us all. Once was more than enough for me. I wasn’t all that crazy about Hillary Clinton but I knew he was a rotten, low-down stinker from the jump. What IContinue reading “Desperate Wannabe Despot”
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!”
