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”

“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!”

What ARE You Going To Do?

I intentionally left this rather bare for a reason. Our choice right now is pretty stark. Either we get off our hind ends and go to the polls and vote for people who will defend the rights of women…or you don’t care enough about your sisters, mothers, and daughters to do anything to defend them.Continue reading “What ARE You Going To Do?”

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”

Now THAT’S What Scares Me

Halloween is not my “thing”. I just have never gotten the point of the whole thing. But then I don’t do circuses and clowns either (at least the Barnum and Bailey kind. Cirque du Soleil-yeah, I can get into those.) Scary masks, pranks, and boo-ing people, though? Nyah. I’ll meet you over at the hotContinue reading “Now THAT’S What Scares Me”

Pain and Blood? They Don’t Know How

If the male gender was responsible for that end of reproduction, you can bet the farm that we wouldn’t be facing this climate crisis, New York City’s streets would be nearly clear of cars and buses, and we wouldn’t be having this big fight right now. However, such is not the case. (I’m still ofContinue reading “Pain and Blood? They Don’t Know How”

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”
