About Me

A child of the 60\\\'s, a lifelong Democrat and a sense that our elected officials , especially the President, set the tone of civility in our great country. I worked on JFK\\\'s campaign and on Barack Obama\\\'s (twice). High School Class of 1963 I was moved by MLK\\\'s march on Washington, and to see that go full circle and have Mr. Obama for President is quite gratifying. When I see remnants of the John Birch society still quite active in the Tea Party it strengthens my beliefs and support of the Democratic Party.

New Haven CT ---VAX TO THE MAX

Friday 9/24/21 2:15 pm watch President Biden announce the availability for us over 65 at Walgreen's. Get in car. Arrive Walgreen ==3:20pm ------no appointment ---walk in ---3rd Pfizer vaccine 3:55 ----walk out DONE!!

We brought our original card with us from February and basic info on our profile.

We tried to make an appointment on line like the first one , but the web site/software was not up to speed --

did not buy the Halloween candy corn on the way out

Will be in Charleston at Christmas

Anita Hill is exactly who we need right now at SCOTUS

I do believe that Ginni Thomas can not take the heat and embarrassment of an investigation into the January 6 treason. It could be enough for to make her husband step down if he sees his wife going through a heavy cross examination. A person that is uniquely qualified for SCOTUS is Anita Hill. Biden would be haviing a chance to make amends and the court would be rocketed into a new formation. Dr Hill is 56 years old and i think she has an 30 year term to look forward to.

subpeona their DNA

https://nypost.com/2021/01/08/rioters-left-feces-urine-in-hallways-and-offices-during-mobbing-of-us-capitol/

because these rioters defecated and urinated inside the Capitol it is a reason to subpeona all of them to provide a DNA sample. It is an opportunity to do some matching and find them guilty on other charges elsewhere

Texas 38 electoral votes -a weapon of mass destruction for the GOP

TURN TEXAS BLUE----Cruz only had a 2% win over Beto O'Rourke. So if we can turn Virginia and GEorgia blue we certainly should be able to turn TEXAS BLUE in 2022, and then again in 2024. There is a younger crowd in Texas and it is starting to look like Georgia. And after all the carnage from the GOP's mishandling of Covid the door seems to be openingn quite a bit

Romney/as Senate majority leader

if we don't get a majority --there just might be a few 2022 GOP retirees/weak runners that might vote that way-------I can raise more objections than most people ----but McConnell needs to go

please continue Oath Keepers

we fully appreciate the good work that you have done in Virginia ----you've taken the former bright red ---Republican stronghold and former capital of the Confederacy -----and made it BRIGHT BLUE ---when Trump said there are good people on both sides it infuriated a lot of Virginians -the removal of Confederate memorabilia on Monument Avenue in Richmond is a direct result-----on the campus of Virginia Military Institute you have successfully caused the removal of the Stonewall Jackson statute-----and the celebration of Confederate Heroes has been removed and now ELECTION DAY is a holiday there---- you actually have done more for FAIRNESS -----which you call "librul" ---than most of the leaders of the left----

2024 is now --Trump as the artist or magician

I kinda like what Trump has been doing. His command of the artist's palette is one of my favorite things because he knows how to change red to blue. His comments of encouragement to the racists in Virginia have turned the entire state BLUE. The racist monuments of Confederate so called heroes---traitors in my book---on Monument Avenue in Richmond are coming down. VMI ---a bastion of racism has fired their top administrator and the statue of Stonewall Jackson is coming down. --Mr. Trump has done even more for the Democratic party with his cruel comments about John McCain so that now we have TWO Democratic Senators coming to DC from Arizona . ---I like Trump's work in Georgia--he has taken a long term safe Republican state and turned it into a Democratic stronghold. Trump seems to be doing more damage in Georgia than Sherman's March to the Sea. It doesn't look like Trump will win, but we can hope if he does he will complete his work in Texas where his political palette is turning the State blue. ----The trend in Texas ----Romney won it by 19 points, Trump beat HRC by 11 points (Hillary received 3,877,868 votes) and his most recent "win" against Biden is a 6 point spread with Biden receiving 5,222,058 votes. Texas is an electoral vote gold mine with its 38 electoral vote, California has 55 and New York has 29 ----that is a pretty good start to 270 EV for the win. My call is that the Democrats should work Texas hard for the next four years. Florida has a lot of EV but it is unstable vote wise because of the OWIDS like me----(OLD WHITE IRRELEVANT DUDES) ---who can't be counted on the vote in a stable manner (except for me)---so he has been good for the Democrats so far. Trump has said that he was going to build a wall ----and he did---he just turned Maine BLUE ---so New England now has a blue wall all the way to West Virginia. Thank you Donald Trump for your brand damage to the Republican Party

My pick for our new postmaster general

Here is my pick for our new Postmaster General -- Rep Abigail Spanberger(D) Virginia - a former CIA officer and Postal Service investigator, presented herself as a moderate focused on issues affecting rural Americans. In campaign ads, she also highlighted her background in intelligence and national security. Just won again in Virginia's 7th. She is a hero in my book because she defeated David Brat( of Eric Cantor dethroning fame) in the 2018. And she just squeaked by to win again. She is a safe appointment because her Democratic Governor will be able to appoint her replacement (picks anyone?)

What do you think? Electoral College (EV) with DC and Puerto Rico as US States

a lot of talk right now about Trump and the new SCOTUS rigging the 2020 in Trump's favor. But what happens in all those states that elect a Democratic majority in the Senate? Sure they can rig the election on EV but they can't rig the Senate vote. End the filibuster? Start a new impeachment against Trump? Adopt DC and Puerto Rico? I don't think any of these thoughts are unreasonable considering what we have been through for the last four years. Opinions?
