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”

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”
