About Me

I think a lot of people get stuck in a certain mindset, they won't allow themselves to think outside of their party affiliation. I try not to do that, I'm all about what's fair, what's right and what's just. Liberals have to make it known that we are not the "anything goes" crowd. Yes, we believe in family and some of us even believe in God. We also believe in common decency and human rights for all people. Some of us believe that parents should have a say in the lives of their underage children. The perception of liberals has been twisted and distorted for far too long. Which is why those on the right use the term "liberal" like it's a four letter word. My mother is the type of liberal I would like to be. A God loving, family values, Pro choice, Pro-America, liberal.

Can someone tell me why this case wasn't classified as a hate crime too.

"According to the lawsuit, the 18-year-old victim was called names including Kool-Aid,

chicken-eater,” “watermelon” and the N-word by his football teammates beginning in the summer of 2015."




"A former Idaho high school football player originally charged with sexually assaulting his mentally disabled teammate will avoid jail time and escape classification as a sex offender after pleading guilty to a lesser felony.

John R.K. Howard, 19, of Keller, Tex., pleaded guilty to a felony count of injury to a child and will be sentenced to two to three years of probation and up to 300 hours of community service, the Idaho Statesmen reported. A judge will decide the final sentence on Feb. 24.

Deputy Attorney General Casey Hemmer said if the case had gone to trial, prosecutors would have been able to prove Howard kicked a coat hanger into his teammate’s rectum during the October 2015 attack — but a modified guilty plea submitted by the teen allows him to maintain his innocence while still acknowledging he would have otherwise been convicted.

Howard initially faced up to life in prison, a fine as much as $50,000 and registration as sex offender."

This is the question I asked a Trump supporter on twitter... So far he hasn't replied.



If your neighbor told you he likes to touch children and then a child accuses him of touching them.. who would you believe?

The debate was dark, depressing and Donald was repulsive.

It was like watching a belligerent husband bully, yell and blame his wife. I think I'll skip the next one.

Lying Pence

Everyone knew Pence lied, but because he did a good job of delivering the lies the MSM and the GOP said he won the debate.

"LeBron James: Why I'm endorsing Hillary Clinton"

"Trump Jr’s ‘Skittles’ tweet is based on two different white supremacist memes and Nazi propaganda"

Last week he tweeted a meme with a frog that's associated with White supremacists.

"Dr. Oz Show edited out Trump’s creepy remark about kissing daughter Ivanka ‘every chance I get"

Steve Kornacki, Chuck Todd and Andrea Mitchell..

Should go work for Faux news. It seems all they do is spin things in Trump's favor and continue to repeat right-wing talking points.

"Ex-Chicago cop chews out Asheville police for not arresting Trump fan who punched woman"...

Since the MSM refuses to cover all of the Trump scandals we should do their jobs for them

on social media...Mainly Twitter. Today "Hillary's body double" was trending. I used the hashtag Hillary's body double, but inserted info about Trump scandals. Like the fact that he was accused by a woman of raping her when she was 13 and a few other things that the MSM hasn't covered. It's more than apparent that they have decided to look the other way when it comes to Trump's short comings. Someone here should come up with away where we can organize on Twitter and combat this nonsense. I was truly disgusted by all of the coverage about her health, if we are going to win this.. we MUST organize and fight back.
