The Lady Speaks

Slow Posting

I haven’t been around much, I know. And that’s not going to get better within the next 30 days.

Truthfully, I’ve hit the wall when it comes to the outrages and scandals and just plain willful ignorance on the part of the administration and far too many CongressCritters – Dems included – and the large percentage of the American people who think bombing Iran might be a good idea.

As Upton Sinclair wrote: “It is very difficult to get a man to understand something when his salary depends on not understanding it.” And that’s where we are today, folks.


Where the Constitution has been shredded and your government listens to or reads your every word, where dissent is unpatriotic and stifled by the administration, where your money and your life (and the stock market) is dependent on your remaining an ignoramus.

Eventually, something new will spark my outrage once again, and I’ll be back to tell you all just how much it pisses me off.

November’s postings will be spotty (even more so than this month) as I’ll be busy with writing of another type. National Novel Writing Month begins at midnight!

Once again, I’m gathering, sorting, and collating notes that will (Goddess and the keyboard willing) become 50,000 words (or more!) by 11:59pm on November 30th.


Oh, and a little reminder from your friendly Minority Inspector of Elections: Go Vote on Tuesday, November 6th!!

    Register and vote next time.
    Especially be registered and vote in November.
    Today I saw a documentary on a woman from New Hampshire.
    She never had really gotten involved in things outside her home and town, and wasn’t really interested in politics. Always felt there was time later. Then when she was 89 her husband and sister died, and her daughter was diagnosed with Alzheimers.
    She realized time was running out fast. So, she walked across the USA (4 months to cross Texas) to get folks to register to vote.
    Then when she was 96, and the Democratic candidate for the Senate from N.H. suddenly pulled out of the race, she launched a campaign for his spot. ( She was facing 2 term Republican with lots of bucks. ) She was basically broke. Ultimately, with around $100,000 in donations, she was able to run a grassroots campaign. She didn’t win, but she captured 43% of the vote.
    She says, “Democracy isn’t something we have, it is something we must do.”
    What a role model.
    If you are local, vote Smith, Sullivan, and Mclinko for commissioiners. Vote Sally Vaughn Fairchild for Prothonatary.
    And Vote YES to retain Judge Mott.
