About Me

Transgender woman of color who wants to live in a world where schools and libraries have enough money and the Defense department requires yearly bake sales to update their missiles.

Maybe she should be out

So we can get a house to land on her in Munchingland.

History Lesson

A poem rhat 50 years from now American kids will learn on how the 45 administration began to unravel...

Shocked. Just shocked I tell you!

Well, the hole is getting deeper and bigger...I can hardly wait till we start this bonfire.

How True

I went to a meeting discussing hate crimes with the assistant district attorney responsible for hate crime prosecution. Topics discussed included what is considered a hate crime and ways for victims to report to authorities if and when they feel their rights have been infringed on by another party. I spoke as an African-American Muslim transgender woman and was even interviewed by the local TV station.

As I was leaving and got in the elevator with another African-American woman she informed me that if I ever was in the same bathrooms with her granddaughters she would kill me. I tried to explain that I am transgender, not a pedophile, have no criminal record, and am currently engaged to my fiance, a cisgender man, but she let her hatred fly.

So sad. So very sad.

I agree, but...

Sometimes this is political theater. By saying sure, I will work with you, some voters who are not political savvy may see, hey why not?

I don't agree with that view. I wished he said, sure, we will work with you, TO MAKE OBAMACARE BETTER, but never, ever to repeal until we achieve universal care.

I agree

I believe also that when he made the statement, the election for him was assured. This rabbit hole goes far and deep, and when it is all said and done, I further believe we are witnessing the end of the Republican Party.

They can enter the Whig, Federalist, and Know Nothing Parties club.

Wow! Just wow!

And it really is Vive le Cray Cray to these traitorous hooligans.

Well, are you gonna be a Maverick?

Or are you gonna be a mouse? And I would not be surprised that the rabbit hole goes over and down to Arizona.

Loyalty to who?

The country or the Party. If it is the party he is shameless. And the GOP is shameless.

Neither party speaks to me...

Wait a minute. We live in a democracy and select based on who can do the job. We are not competing for a glee club spot, so we should (and others who say this) we want the good, not the best. Sometimes we have to make a choice that we are not happy with, often called being an adult, but choose you must.

As far as 'both sides do it' shows people who are not informed because that is not true. The KKK and the White Citizens Council are not the same although they may be similar in aim but not in function. I am unsure if that is a good analogy but my point is informed people vote, and make better decisions about the future of our country.
