About Me

Just a poor liberal lesbian living in the deep south. Don't expect me to be nice just because I am a liberal. I am kind of bitchy with an attitude problem.

I found a furever home for my rescue.

She's a young woman with no other dogs. Little Bit will have lots of love!!!

I rescued another dog today.

We think she is a pomeranian mix. Who knows how old she is. She's scared and bitey right now. Hopefully I will find her a good home.

She was roaming the neighborhood, and a neighbor had been feeding her. Nobody's claimed her yet.

Ron DeSantis keeps up negative (and false) attacks on Gillum in Tampa

Meeting and greeting Tampa Republicans Saturday, GOP candidate for Florida governor Ron DeSantis gave a speech devoted almost entirely to attacking and mischaracterizing his Democratic opponent, Andrew Gillum, saying little about his own plans or ideas for governing Florida.

The event capped a day of campaigning in Central Florida for DeSantis, including a news conference with Puerto Rican backers in Orlando and a rally at The Villages retirement community.

In Tampa, an enthusiastic crowd made up largely of grass-roots campaign workers crammed into a tiny GOP campaign office suite for an appearance by DeSantis, his wife Casey and Rep. Matt Gaetz, R-Fort Walton Beach.

For about 20 minutes, they heard DeSantis launch one attack after another.


'Bodes well for Dems': First day of early voting in Nevada is staggeringly high

Veteran Nevada political report Jon Ralston reports on a surge of voting during the first day of early voting.

The final voter registration numbers released today show Democrats with 598,174 registered voters to the Republican Party’s 523,251 — a registration advantage of nearly 75,000.

This is some good news, but we still need to get out and vote. I voted straight blue by mail in Florida today. Keeping my fingers crossed!


Andrew Gillum is to blame...

for helping Florida get power back on after hurricane Michael. I just got mine back on today. Thank you Andrew Gillum!

Why this political scientist thinks the Democrats have to fight dirty

In September 2016, an anonymous conservative writer published an essay called “The Flight 93 Election.”

The title was a reference to the one hijacked flight on 9/11 that didn’t reach its destination because passengers overwhelmed the hijackers and brought the plane down.

The logic of the essay was simple enough: The prospect of a Hillary Clinton presidency was so positively ruinous that conservatives had no choice but to support Donald Trump — no matter how awful or incompetent he appeared to be. The stakes were simply too high.

Until now, there was no left-wing equivalent to the “Flight 93” essay, no rallying cry that urged Democrats and liberals to do whatever is necessary to win. But David Faris’s new book, It’s Time to Fight Dirty, is the closest anyone has come so far.


Christian lawmaker giddy about abortion being outlawed advises women to get their 'coathangers ready

A West Virginia lawmaker who left the Democratic party because he felt it was “anti-Christian” is under fire for taunting women to get their “coat-hangers ready” in anticipation of Roe v. Wade being overturned with the help of newly-installed Supreme Court Justice Brett Kavanaugh.

In the now-deleted Facebook comment that was screen-captured by several commenters, Parkersburg City Councilman Eric Barber was busted for the comment that drew the ire of others on Facebook who were appalled at his grotesque reference to back-alley abortions


Manchin: I'm open to supporting Trump in 2020

Source: The Hill

Sen. Joe Manchin (D-W.Va.) says he is open to supporting President Trump's reelection bid in 2020.

"I'm open to supporting the person who I think is best for my country and my state," Manchin told Politico, insisting that he would support any candidate from either party. "If his policies are best, I'll be right there."

"I'm with him sometimes more than other Republican senators are with him," he added. "Washington Democrats are making it more difficult for me to be a West Virginia Democrat."

Trump easily won West Virginia during the 2016 presidential election with almost 70 percent of the vote, which was his largest share of the vote in any state.

Wanna bet he turns red after November midterms?

Anybody have any links to share about proposed amendments?

Of course, yes on 4, but what about the rest? I've googled some but can't find any democratic progressive information on the rest of the ballot amendments. I read the amendments and re read them but can't make heads nor tails. You have to be a lawyer to understand some of the legalese.
