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”

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”
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”
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?”
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!”
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”
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”
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”
