Watching the primary returns this evening has been a bag of mixed emotions. Sad because Pete Buttigieg wasn’t a part of the excitement. Happy that Amy Klobuchar had suspended her candidacy. Frustrated that so many people voting today had unnecessary long waits due to the lack of enough voting machines or precincts for the number… Continue reading An Evening of Mixed Emotions
What a whirlwind of politics! Can a person even keep up? Obama appears to have really been making the weekend calls and I wish he hadn’t. He and Jimmy give Pete a talking to, and Pete is out and endorsing Biden. Obama gives Amy a talking to, and she is out and endorsing Biden. Obama… Continue reading Obama Got Game! And I Think He Bet on the “Wrong” Horse
My heart is very heavy. Mayor Pete has suspended his presidential bid. I was sitting in a movie theater scrolling through Twitter and there it was, the announcement. A web search had to be done because I couldn’t believe it to be true. As I confirmed the news, it actually felt like I had lost… Continue reading Whom to Vote for Now?

Where Have All Our Leaders Gone?
Tami Burages (@tmurages) hit it out of the park with the following Twitter thread. This is what a response to Trumpism and AG Barr should have looked like in a truly functioning Democratic Republic and a Fourth Pillar seeking the truth to protect the Constitution. This is what we should demand and expect from our… Continue reading This is an Appropriate Response to Trumpism
Until today, I’ve not used that term really. However, it seems the most appropriate today. The deplorable of today are women who voted for a man who feels okay grabbing a woman ￼by the pussy and a party that believes it should be able to control a woman’s body. It is a FBI director who… Continue reading The Deplorable Among Us Have Won
When I came across a list of books by the, then 24, Democratic presidential candidates, I decided I was going to read them. Luckily, the major candidates have whittled down, so I’ve read 11 of the books available (not all have books). Interestingly, no bookstore had them all. One would think they would have a… Continue reading 11 Books Read by Democrat Presidential Candidates
