Be the Change

Did you vote in the primaries? If not, today is National Voter Registration Day. Let your voice be heard. In two elections since 2000, our presidents may have been different if more people voted. You say my voice can’t be heard; look at your state and local elections, which generally have a larger impact on you than the presidential race. So many times they are too close to call during the 11:00 news and even the next day. Register today. Your voice matters. You matter. https://vote.gov

NFL Players, It’s Time to Take a Stand

The NFL made a decision last week because of its fans—the majority of whom are white men. Most of the fanbase did not have an issue with kneeling during the national anthem until Trump got involved. He found one more way to divide our nation. What was initially a silent protest about racial injustice became … Continue reading NFL Players, It’s Time to Take a Stand

Our Children Will Be the Change

President Trump, Congress, and the rest of our elected officials, I hope that yesterday's March for Our Lives was a wake-up call. Your jobs are on the line. Stop catering to PACs, and start listening to your community. Just look at the recent mid-term election in Pennsylvania, where it was an overwhelmingly red state, but a democrat just won. Our children are crying out for change, and you cannot ignore them. Our youngest generations created change during the Civil Rights Movement, the Women's Rights Movement, and most recently, during President Barack Obama's election. Our children will always be the change. #WakeUp

Bonus Pay for Our Schools #ArmMeWith

The recent shooting at Stoneman Douglas High School may finally be the catalyst for change for gun reform in this country. But, at what cost? Donald Trump has been floating around the idea of arming teachers in schools. I say floating because as we know from previous experience, Trump may later say he never said that. It seems like he may be moving forward with this because he later added that armed teachers would receive bonus pay. Really?!?! Today, I’m not going to debate whether our teachers should be armed. Instead, I want you to consider that bonus pay remark. How is it that you can suddenly find bonus pay for a teacher to carry a gun in the schools, but you can’t find some bonus pay to reimburse teachers for all the school supplies that they have to buy throughout the year?

The First Dance #Inauguration

It's official​. The first dance for the Trumps and Pences. Now let us pray and work to create the change we want.  ​​ ​

Tears of Trump Supporters

GOPocalypse recently published an article about Trump supporters who were upset about changes to the ACA, such as the pre-existing conditions clause, and its journey to repeal. I realize GOPocalypse is not a neutral publication, but I had to share some of the tweets. @realDonaldTrump So back to a choice between rent & insurance again … Continue reading Tears of Trump Supporters

What’s Next?

I have not written a post since the election because it took me some time to process everything. I wanted to make sure that I truly understood what was occurring. I wanted to wait and see if Trump was going to try to unite our country, or would we the fruits of his divisiveness throughout … Continue reading What’s Next?

The Truth of This Election 

The closeness of this election truly concerns me. It goes beyond Clinton vs. Trump. These results show the true heart of people. No matter who wins or loses, it is quite easy to see that this country has to heal. 

House of Cards: The Reality Show

This election season has been a page turner for a wannabe political aficionado like me. If you would have told me that Donald Trump would be the last candidate standing, with Ted Cruz still thinking about returning for the nomination, I would have laughed in your face. In fact, I would have already been cracking … Continue reading House of Cards: The Reality Show

Mary Pat Eye Roll

It's ok Mary Pat, I roll my eyes every time Donald Trump speaks too. 🙄
