104. I can't find the post yet, but you said of O'Malley and positions and reciepts. Then gave a list of

what he actually accomplished in his state. I was impressed and understand your support him now. I'll start reading the group.

I planned to vote for BS in the primaries, not disparage other candidates but if the real life crew is anything like online, nothing doing. But the HRC accepted me under those terms, that I'd vote for her if she won the nomination and wanted to learn more about her. She's made a huge difference in the way women and girls are being treated in other countries, and these are POC she's helped.

I have always said, to dismiss 51% of the world's population is not a winning strategy. Which is why the attack on women's rights is occuring to suppress them. Barefoot, pregnant, under the thumb of one boss who one is married to, uneducated and unpaid, paid less.

The GOP is making life choices for women that greatly affect their financial lives and their freedom and role in society, are as bad as taking the right to vote.

Which Texas did by suddenly requiring divorced women who still bore their ex's last name, to prove they were who they were at birth to correct the record. But they had been voting for years. Years of poverty from the causes I listed above kept them out of politics, too.

This is the thing about HRC that some find appealing. Not that she would be POTUS. But that women need to be elevated and that would indeed stop wars, poverty and violence. Because enlightened women don't choose to do these things first, they are more cooperative and less confrontational.

(It's like that pic of Bain I've posted which is interesting to me as it shows a certain level of mental strength she has, but she is against guns:



But there is a disconnect there that is obvious to me. Because the woman who is pregnant is vulnerable, and most women eschew such violence. For me it's funny, but it's not what most women would do.)

A polite person visited the HRC group to advocate for O'M. But that is a violation of boundaries to not go along with the intent of a group. It just seemed surreal. Obviously, the HRC group is about getting her elected.

Just as the BOG is about the Obamas and what he has done. And on and on with all the safe haven groups. Which are not safe havens at all, when you see what has happened to 1SBM.

1SBM posted very early this morning and will come tonight to find a notice in his mailbox, I guess. I hope he doesn't go. He is one of the most openminded and also is involved in his own networking for AAs in his state.

He is the real deal. Which is more than I can about so many others posting online. I just don't believe them anymore.
