“B” in IBEW Does Not Mean Black For Future Energy Jobs Act

“B” in IBEW Does Not Mean Black For Future Energy Jobs Act
I never considered my self an angry black woman but I may have to don a baseball cap with ABW!!! emblazoned on it. I’ve marched. I’ve protested starting way back with the Viet Nam war and Earth Day. On the 50th anniversary of the martyrdom of Dr. M.L. King, Jr. I quietly hoped somethings had... Read more »

Scotter Libby is the Last Straw or Should Be.

Scotter Libby is the Last Straw or Should Be.
In case you haven’t heard The Donald has pardoned convicted leaker and lier Scooter Libby. In case you have forgotten Libby leaked the identity of CIA operative and wife of an ambassador and probably helped to send the U.S. to war. What strikes me is that there are so many similarities to the situation in... Read more »

FOX Channel Please Pick Up Roseanne Show

FOX Channel Please Pick Up Roseanne Show
I was not one of the 18 million who tuned in to see Roseanne. A significant number of viewers were in Chicago. That didn’t surprise me. We have one of the most segregated cities in these United States.  To be honest I didn’t watch Roseanne when it was on television before. Before you think I... Read more »

Addicted to MSNBC
I have to confess. I stand accused of being addicted to MSNBC news. I admit it. I can no longer ignore the addiction. I need help! I used to watch the news once per day, mostly in the evening. It was never a pleasant thing to do. I mean seriously, the news is normally depressing.... Read more »

I also feel that the US (United States and us as part of it) have manipulated elections in other countries but... Read more »

Anita Hill in 2020

Anita Hill in 2020
Facebook is ablaze with people asking the question, should Oprah Winfrey run for president. The DNC is sending me emails asking who do I think should be on the ticket. It seems pretty clear that most anyone I know thinks Donald Trump should not be re-elected at the least and tried for treason and locked... Read more »

Mr. Claure Sprint is Not Communicating
Dear Mr. Marcelo Claure: I read an article in Fierce Wireless regarding changes at Sprint being instituted to create as you put it “flatter, faster and closer than ever to our customers.” I have to ask how’s that working?  In my only attempt to get a very important matter regarding my phone service sorted out...

Rauner on Recreational Cannabis? No Dope.

Rauner on Recreational Cannabis? No Dope.
This may not be the only reason that Illinois voters don’t renew his contract but it might be close to the top reason. The State of Illinois needs money and cannabis sales brings in the dough. Rauner’s statement that not enough study is done is ludicrous. THC, the active hallucinogenic compound, has been studied for... Read more »

Saying Goodbye to Democracy

These past few months in this country have been pretty difficult for those of us who experienced the first Earth Day; marched for civil rights and/or wept at the death of friends who returned from Viet Nam in boxes. They left many of us standing in long lines outside of innumerable funeral homes from sprawling... Read more »
