Re: Tulsi Gabbard 2020

She's sending out daily emails ranting about the warmonger HRC and how Tulsi will save the Democratic Party. :roll: Except for Veterans Day. In that email she sez she will end wars, she's the Only One who can, and she's the ONLY ONE who has experienced war. (I guess Mayor Pete doesn't count?) ... I ...

Re: Constitution: Equal Rights Amendment (ERA)

Those legislators are expected to bring the ERA vote to the floor in January 2020 -- and this time, ratify it. This would supply the final, 38th state needed to ratify the amendment, passed by Congress in 1972. Earlier this year in Virginia, the measure lost -- by one vote. What would the ERA do? I...

After losing internet and tv last week, it was restored just barely by various back up systems. Today it crashed again, including phonecalls.

Re: Dementia and Alzheimer's

Somehow I missed this. Losing someone to Alzheimer's is devastating. Long, more horrible everyday, and then a living body, but the person you love is gone. There are support groups. And private assistance/therapy. Recovering from the loss of your longterm companion is difficult enough, but watching ...

Gabbard so far has one qualifying poll (early-state Iowa, at three percent).
That's because her campaign bought some time on an LED billboard in Mason City.
She has support from Faux News, Putin, HRC haters, and Dem haters in general. She'll make it to the debate.
