It sure is a good thing Hillary wasn't elected

Can you imagine what a mess the country would be in if she had been?

I can only imagine the divisiveness, the corruption, the investigations, the trampled rights, and all of the other elements in the parade of horrible that would have ensued.

Dodged THAT bullet, didn't we?

Black women are tired of explaining to white women why they should care about everyone's interest

not just what they think of as their own and then, after they ignore us for the unpteenth time and the people they put into office (even though we begged them not to) trample all over them (and us), we have to listen to them carry on about how victimized they are and how WE must all wake up and do something about it because OMG! LOOK at how it's affecting THEM (when the black WEs and plenty of our white female sisters have been working our asses off to do something about it all along).

When will these women finally get it through their heads that they must look beyond the narrow self-interests they think are enough to sustain and protect them and start caring about people other than themselves?

When will they start voting as if it matters to them that poor or minority or immigrant women aren't marginalized and abused by the people they keep supporting because tax cuts or property taxes or school vouchers or Hillary's emails or hair or ambition or something - only to find that those same people have no qualms about turning on THEM, too?

When will they start listening to and working with black women BEFORE they get smacked upside the head with the white male fundamentalist 2 x 4 they thought of other people were going to be subjected to?

Maybe now that they see what's happening in Alabama and Georgia and Ohio and elsewhere, they'll wake up and get with the program.

But I thought that every other time we've had a wave of this kind of anti-woman legislation. But every time, the minute the controversy dies down, my hopes are crushed as I watch these very same supposedly newly-woke women turn away and line right back up again with and stand behind the men who are doing this to us - and give them the votes they need to keep on doing it.

So, I don't have much hope - but I'll still keep trying because that's what we do.

Seriously, Bernie?


But I probably should stop being surprised


Uh-Oh ... This could be bigly


If Ocasio-Cortez decides to run for president in the future, I hope y'all remember

how the right wing targeted and obsessed over her from Day 1 and, after years of her being harassed, dragged through the mud and raked over the coals by those people, you don’t blame HER for having “too much baggage” - as was done with another female trailblazer ...

Please stop talking, Joe!

Or at least think about what you're about to say before you say it!

Why does legalizing prostitution only seem to come up when prominent men are charged w/solicitation?

And why does there seem to be more concern about the impact being arrested has on the lives of the johns than the impact of being bought has on the women they paid for?
