Randy Paul really made me lol for real

I loved how he bashed Christie for shutting down a bridge, the friggin teabags in congress shut down the federal government for gods sake.
This is going to be the funniest gop primary ever.

Make every vote count

This is why we vote, the AG vote was very close in Virginia and every vote made the biggest difference in which direction the state is taking now with Herring as Ag instead of Obenshain

Small step in the right direction in Virginia


And this is why it matters to vote in every election, we now have a dem governor who will sign this bill if it gets to his desk

Amiri Baraka died, rip, great activist and human


I met the man several times and was lucky enough to spend a few hours talking to him about poetry and civil rights decades ago. I lived in Newark during the riots and the rise of the black power movement.

Hello, I'm new here

My name is Linda but I go by gwheezie {one of the young fellas who is a regular patient where I work said to me one day, grammawheezie when are they going to make you retire and I said when you stop smoking crack, so from then on my name here has been grammawheezie}. I'm in my 60's, live in where the hell am i, virginny and female. I've been a liberal since I 1st heard of my political hero Shirley Chisholm back in the day. I am probably fairly centrist however passionately believe that left needs to keep pushing some of us old farts back to our roots. I hope I contribute something worthwhile to any discussions here.
