Women, Young People, Black Folks–Every Vote MATTERS

I get it. I do. If you want to get angry, get angry at the Republicans in power. They wanted to MAKE IT A DAMNED NUISANCE in hopes that fewer people would go to the polls. Historically, when fewer people go to the polls, their people generally win. It’s a form of voter suppression. TheyContinue reading “Women, Young People, Black Folks–Every Vote MATTERS”

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??”

What Do Democrats Have To Offer? — Filosofa’s Word

This is a post that I read and enjoyed. She copied/pasted an article of Bernie Sanders that I find very pertinent to what I want to work toward. We do have more to offer than the Republican fascists. They are retro-gressive in their viewpoints. We want to move forward. They want to move us BACKWARDS.Continue reading “What Do Democrats Have To Offer? — Filosofa’s Word”

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”

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”

If You Were Asked To Name Your STATE Senator and Legislator, Could You Do It?

People right now kind of know that Rev. Raphael Warnock is one of their U. S. Senators. It’s all over the news that he’s running for re-election and who his opponent is. Hard to miss if you want to know the truth. Rev. Warnock is everything you would want in a Senator white, black, orContinue reading “If You Were Asked To Name Your STATE Senator and Legislator, Could You Do It?”

At Least Complain To The Correct Place, Will Ya?

Voters to the “right” of the spectrum love to moan and groan about the prices at the gas pump. I’m not thrilled with them either. (I just filled up myself. OUCH!) I’m well aware of inflation, thank you very much, but you have to wonder if those folks EVER look at what is going onContinue reading “At Least Complain To The Correct Place, Will Ya?”

Rules and Regulations, And Why That’s A Good Thing (But Republicans Don’t Want Them)

I spent 25 years of my life learning how to make everything I did conform to the rules and regulations of not one but several government agencies. I was darn good at doing it, too. Now one of the things that most people do not realize is that these Rules and Regulations have the forceContinue reading “Rules and Regulations, And Why That’s A Good Thing (But Republicans Don’t Want Them)”

Where Do Our Schools Rank? Top? Bottom? Middle? Is Kemp Lying to Us Or Not?

One of my passions has always been an education for children, especially underprivileged children or children with some sort of problem. It probably stems from my own love of reading and sheer joy and fascination with all things science. (Though I will admit to shortcomings in math. But I blame that on what I nowContinue reading “Where Do Our Schools Rank? Top? Bottom? Middle? Is Kemp Lying to Us Or Not?”

The OTHER Stuff in the Holy Writ

Having been raised in the (very) evangelical Christian Church (the branch that calls itself the “Reformation Movement” and encompasses broadly churches with the labels Church of God, Church of Christ, Christian, Nazarene, some of the Pentecostals and Charismatics, etc.). I won’t go into the history of it. Suffice it to say that the founders cameContinue reading “The OTHER Stuff in the Holy Writ”
