Open Thread | If You Aren’t Registering People To Vote, Telling Them to Check on Their Voter Registration…

Making sure that they have the right ID, if they are in a Voter ID state…
Telling them when their elections are….

You aren’t serious about what just happened with the Supreme Court.
If someone is pursing their lips to tell you not to vote, or questioning why to vote for Democrats…

They are a chaos agent. Probably a paid saboteur.

I have voted in every election since I turned 18.
Very few candidates “inspired ” me. But, I wasn’t looking to date them. I was looking for at most, policies to improve my life. At least, folks that would not harm me or people like me. Every inch of progress in this country has come from DEMOCRATS.

PERIODT.

I, like 94% of Black women, did the right thing in 2016.
That I refuse to listen to the screeching of those who DID NOT do the right thing in 2016 should be obvious. 😒😒😒

Protest is just perfomative cosplay bullshyt unless you get out and vote in November 2022.😠😠

Once again, stating the obvious…

DEMOCRACY ITSELF IS ON THE BALLOT IN NOVEMBER👏🏾👏🏾😠😠

This wonderful woman always keeps her eyes on the prize. She is always about the business of what is truly important in November👏🏾👏🏾

Open Thread | No, We Are Not Going Back To the Bad Old Days

I follow several LGBTQ+ folks on Twitter, and they are lamenting that the hatred is more obvious now, and I would have to agree.

The right-wing is using misunderstanding about Trans folks, to creep back the hatred to the general LGBTQ+ community.

I was a child of the 1980’s. I remember those bad old times. I remember watching the gay community being decimated by AIDS, all the while the Republicans in this country vilified them and ignored their sickness and pain. I remember that shyt done in the name of religion. How these ‘ religious’ people spread their poison and hatred towards the LGBTQ+ community.

The first person who came out to me was a friend in high school. We were both 15. I knew that his family was hateful and would have no compunction about throwing him out into the street if they knew about his sexual orientation. I’m not saying that I understood what being a homosexual meant, but, I knew that this was my friend, and I knew that we had decided to surround him with the support that he would never get at home. That we would help him with his plan to get as many scholarships as possible, and help him get financially independent of his family. He got into college miles away, with scholarships, and made sure that his college education was firmly under his control before he came out to his family, who, unfortunately, reacted the way we thought they would when we were in high school.

I met more LGBTQ+ in college. I witnessed the vicious misogyny directed towards lesbians back then. Not only the verbal, but, more often than not, physical assaults towards them.

I knew folks in the military. People who chose to put their lives on the line for this country, and lived under the cloud of Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell. As if their sexual orientation had to do with the ability of them to defend this country.

I watched, as while the beginning of our circle would get married and start families, that they had the look of,
‘ this will never happen for me.’

And then, the world changed.
And, it DID happen for them.

Roe vs Wade Is Gone

We knew that it was coming, but it still is infuriating.

I had a longer talk with Peanut on my lunch break. Told her that this decision was wrong on two levels:
Taking away autonomy for women over their bodies
Two- making some citizens able to access a right based upon where they live. We are all citizens of the United States and we should have EQUAL RIGHTS no matter where you live.

President Biden

Open Thread | The Hearings Reveal More And More of the Danger to the Republic

The testimony from today’s hearings was powerful. It only validated everything that we were watching in real time. Everything we thought Dolt45 and his criminal enterprise of an Administration were doing, THEY WERE DOING.

The active subversion of the Constitution. The willingness of them to destroy the peaceful transfer of power that had been done between every President since George Washington.

These hearings, and their importance, become more obvious with everyone we get. The American people and the pages of history need for this to be on the record.

The attacks on those who were simply doing their jobs will always be unacceptable.

The GOP is a pro-fascist organization, from top to bottom.

Tom Clancy nailed it years ago.

They are a Clear and Present Danger to the Republic.

Period.

The testimonials today were powerful. Enraging.

Open Thread | The Attacks on the Vice President Are Obvious

One of the things that I have tried to do is learn from my mistakes. I will admit that one mistake that I made politically in 2016 was UNDERESTIMATING the misogyny against Hillary Clinton. I had factored in the misogyny against her, but, I honestly didn’t realize the DEPTH of it until the post-mortem of the 2016 election.

I, like other Hillary supporters, realize that allowing the misogyny to go unchecked and unchallenged was a mistake. Meeting in secret Hillary groups, and allowing the misogynists free reign of social media was a mistake.

Defending, but, not full throttle defending of the Forever FLOTUS was also a mistake.

So, like others, we are determined to not make the same mistake with other high profile Black women. How, when we see it now, we call it out, and don’t let it be unchallenged.

Also, acknowledging the complete resentment, in certain quarters, that Black people are the BASE of the Democratic Party.

This crazy nonsense about President Biden not running in 2024. It’s utter craziness.

But, make no mistake, the MSM is in the tank for the GOP. They are both siding everything.
