The Russia Hacking Worked on Me…..Maybe Not

The Russia Hacking Worked on Me…..Maybe Not
I have always felt the attempt by politicians to manipulate my vote. That is what politicians do. It’s the political DNA to lie, manipulate. It makes it hard to make decisions for us citizens. I also feel that the US (United States and us as part of it) have manipulated elections in other countries but... Read more »

Have You Ever Felt Like You’ve Been Threatened? Or is the Bronzeville Microgrid that Serious?

Have You Ever Felt Like You’ve Been Threatened? Or is the Bronzeville Microgrid that Serious?
I never thought that would be a question that I would have. Threatened? OK, the grammar school bully might have been pretty scary and maybe you had a run in with some ruffian who wanted to snatch your cell phone. That’s being a kid and later that’s living in the city but this is different. ... 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 »

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

#Himtoo More Sexual Abuse Comes to Light

I participated in the #Metoo. I can’t think of many women who have not been pinched, groped, or leered at. In my case there was an “uncle” who thought that propositioning a sixteen year old girl with the promise of a new car was acceptable. There was the very powerful and wealthy boss that called...

Who Knew There Was No Fly in Man Panties? I Mean Underwear.

Who Knew There Was No Fly in Man Panties? I Mean Underwear.
What a shock! There are mens’ shorts with no fly. I often shop for my husband’s clothing, including underwear. There is a dizzying array of choices. There are prints, colors, boxers, briefs, bikinis and more. I automatically knew that my husband was not going to wear bikinis or the butt floss type so the most... Read more »
