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.

I agree, but...

He is from New York. As a New Yorker I would want some more combative and less conciliatory responses from him, but New York is a big state. And like it or not, Wall Street has money invested and demands.

When Agnew left...

The Speaker of the House and Democrat stated that since the country voted for a Republican administation, and discussed with Nixon to select Ford who was the Minority Leader of the House. I love Beto too, but I want Pelosi more. The idea of Speaker is more than just legislation. She will select the calender, oversee the investigations, assist in spreading the narrative and more importantly run the cover as a target to the McConnell wing and the Tangerine Tyrant.

Let her do her job as we do ours which I' believe is to focus on bringing to light the crimes of this administration and together we can all raise hell in 2020. Just IMHO but threads like this make us divisive rather than progressing towards a unifird goal.

Be a hate magnet?!?

Any progressive, Democrat, critical thinking person, any individual who stands against racism, misogyny, hatred, and fear, any person who wishes our country to become a more perfect union and be inclusive of all of us are hate magnets

And as someone earlier in this discussion thread stated in a quote by FDR:

I welcome their hatred!

Thank you

I wish a reporter would ask him why he didn't (if he didn't) and as a follow up ask, don't tou believe in our representative democracy?

And your family? Why didn't they vote? (If applicable)

I love these ladies!

Thanks for putting a smile on my face!

Just wondering....

Did trump vote Tuesday in the midterms?

And, has there ever been a time when the President did not vote (I'm thinking only in the 20th century)

We are all frustrated

Little known...I got beat up on Election Day. My fault, I'm a transgender female and some of my neighbors didn't like that. Frustration I understand but we have a process and what makes us different is that the rule of law and order is paramount and not just some silly word salad which is spat out at a rally. Let's get Pelosi and work another two years and take to the streets today to get our country back.
Hillary, not Obama Barack or Michelle or Oprah or anyone else can help us. We have to do it for ourselves our kids our cats and our country.

Don't so this...

Pelosi is the best Speaker of the House in my lifetime which includes the venerable Tip O'Neil. She has been extremely successful and any path of putting a Hillary or Obama or anyone else is not only not viable but will make the opposition more entrenched and increase the polarization. Please please please refrain from this and let's get the House under Pelosi engaged in the Peoples business starting with subpoenas investigations and stopping any more encroachments against the ACA Social Security and raising taxes on those poor rich folks to keep our country moving forward.

Harry Truman Time

Give them hell. By telling the truth, these bastards think that is hell.

And for those RWNJ who vote against their self interest, remember if you want to live like a Republican you have to vote for the Democratic Party.
