About Me

I am 57, retired teacher and illustrator, life-long dem., activist, union member. Also I do not use social media and I'm technologically retarded. I love dogs, rock music and swearing (a lot). My 17 year old "puppy" died on June 2, 2020. She grew up listening to Animals (Pink Floyd). She has kept me sane through the tRump years, not easy, and has given me endless love, companionship, kisses and tail wags.

Susan Collins praises Joe Manchin in Time mag article.

https://time.com/collection/100-most-influential-people-2021/6096004/joe-manchin/

"My phone rang early the morning after the long 2020 election night. It was Joe Manchin waking me up. He immediately jumped from “congratulations” to discussing how to reinvigorate bipartisanship in Washington. At the time, we did not know that the Senate would be equally divided between Republicans and Democrats, making Joe’s vote the most sought-after in the Senate.
In 2021, Joe is in the midst of every debate. He is front and center on the filibuster issue, the infrastructure­ debate, and issues from voting laws to immigration to taxes and spending, as well as nearly every appointment made by the President. In short, Joe is the go-to-guy in the 50-50 Senate.

Joe believes passionately that bipartisanship leads to the best solutions, and he wants to prove it can still work. As someone who shares his belief in working across the aisle, I always want him on my side."

NBC calls the results...Newsom wins, GQP BIG losers!

We didn't just win, WE WON...A LANDSLIDE!!!

Has anyone asked their poll workers how the turn out is so far?

I just dropped off my ballot (I LOVE voting and prefer to do it in person) and the poll worker said the turn out has been pretty good (San Diego). All my neighbors have voted as well as my family. I don't think Elder stands a chance.

Dogs just want to have fun....

Hundreds of protests planned for Oct 2, WOMEN'S MARCH

Women's March Oct 2, 2021 protests and events announced. SPREAD THE WORD!!!

Check out the map for an event near you, more are being added rapidly. Over a hundred have been added in the past week with more events added daily.

On October 2, we’re going to send the Supreme Court and lawmakers across the country a clear, unified message. The attack on our reproductive rights will not be tolerated.

https://womensmarch.com/mobilize

Abortion has never been fully accessible, but we are at the risk of losing our reproductive freedom completely. The call to action is clear, and urgent. The relentless attacks from Texas to Mississippi are ramping up quickly. Anti-choice extremists have a deep desire to return to a time when there was more clear and effective domination and control over queer and trans folks, women, and people of color; they want to revive those old values and societal norms to the point of re-acceptance. The authoritarian agenda of reproductive control is fueled by misogyny and racism - and we must challenge it, together.

On October 2, we're marching in every single state ahead of the Supreme Court reconvening on October 4. Women's March and more than 90 other organizations, including National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health, Planned Parenthood, SHERO Mississippi, Mississippi in Action, Access Reproductive Care-Southeast, The Frontline, Working Families Party, and SisterSong, are organizing a national call to mobilize and defend our reproductive rights.

The first Women's March 2017 was the largest protest in our History. Let's make this one even bigger.
