Am I right to be very very worried about the Nov election in Florida? You know,

the logistics, the location, the workers, etc., etc???
Will people who have lost their home, or have had major or even minor destruction feel like voting?

What huge implications for our country, let alone Florida.

Interested in the current state of CNN? Olbermann dishes and once again, shows how

history matters….

New bumper sticker meme.

“It’s the Voters Stupid”

"Countdown" vintage Keith Olbermann! A great Podcast.

If you listen to the very end, the bombshell he dishes, will make you gasp!
Quite a lot of fodder for discussion.

To Be Continued………..

Voter apathy has come home to roost.

Voter apathy has given us assaults weapons and now hanger health care.

The soft underbelly of apathetic citizens who can’t be bothered to vote, was exposed in today’s SCOTUS ruling.
Ya get what ya give, and if ya didn’t give a damn, they stepped in and gladly took it.

My thoughts and prayers have shifted focus.

To people who don’t vote….

From Elie Mystal
“All the people who care to stop school shootings already vote for politicians who also care, and all the people who don’t care either vote GOP or don’t vote at all. It’s all baked in. And the people who don’t care have shown that carnage doesn’t change their minds.”

One Hundred Years Women have been fighting for Equal Rights under the Constitution

One Hundred Years Women have been fighting for Equal Rights under the Constitution

It is a stunning truth, a sad truth, a disheartening truth, and a revealing truth that men never or will ever vote for women to be valued as having equal rights under the Constitution…

Truly a “read it and weep”

Alice Paul toasting (with grape juice) the passage of the Nineteenth Amendment, August 26, 1920[16]
On September 25, 1921, the National Woman's Party announced its plans to campaign for an amendment to the U.S. Constitution to guarantee women equal rights with men. The text of the proposed amendment read:

Section 1. No political, civil, or legal disabilities or inequalities on account of sex or on account of marriage, unless applying equally to both sexes, shall exist within the United States or any territory subject to the jurisdiction thereof.

Section 2. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.[17]

Alice Paul, the head of the National Women's Party, believed that the Nineteenth Amendment would not be enough to ensure that men and women were treated equally regardless of sex. In 1923, at Seneca Falls, New York, she revised the proposed amendment to read:
Men and women shall have equal rights throughout the United States and every place subject to its jurisdiction. Congress shall have power to enforce this article by appropriate legislation.[16]
Paul named this version the Lucretia Mott Amendment, after a female abolitionist who fought for women's rights and attended the First Women's Rights Convention.[18] The proposal was seconded by Dr. Frances Dickinson, a cousin of Susan B. Anthony.[19]
In 1943, Alice Paul further revised the amendment to reflect the wording of the Fifteenth and Nineteenth Amendments. This text became Section 1 of the version passed by Congress in 1972.[20]
As a result, in the 1940s, ERA opponents proposed an alternative, which provided that "no distinctions on the basis of sex shall be made except such as are reasonably justified by differences in physical structure, biological differences, or social function." It was quickly rejected by both pro and anti-ERA coalitions.[21]

Any advice will be appreciated.

Mr Ninga disturbed my morning news sip and scroll with his anxious laden diatribe about “why isn’t Fox News prosecuted for lying, they are yelling that there is a fire in the theatre when it’s not the truth!”

My “because it’s not that simple” isn’t working.

How do I answer? My feed has questions from people who are not political junkies.

The Ginnie Thomas thing.
Apparently it’s getting the attention of those who don’t follow news.
They are asking what I think the Democrats will do.
I don’t know what to tell them.
