How to get your senators and congressmen to listen.

It occurred to me as I was once again speaking with my congressman that the only way we Americans have to get the politicians on the right to actually listen is to hit them where it hurts. Oh, No…all you stop thinking about kicking them in their dangly parts! I didn’t mean that…altho………….no, hit them where the money lies.

My own congressman has stock in Trump products.  So, in order to get his attention that stock should start plummeting along with a brief note saying that the stores which sell these products are losing money.

If they own stock in Amazon, Walmart, Saks, etc boycott the heck out of those companies..and tell them why!

Letters work as well…to the companies.

For those that do not know, there is a lovely website available with a detailed listing of companies and how they are connected. It is called GrabYour Wallet. Check it out and make your purchases, or lack of purchases put the pressure on our leaders.

It’s worth a shot.

reblogged Open Thought Vortex.

The year after my son was born, my husband had a wonderful job opportunity in Charlottesville, Virginia so we moved our life and newborn to this lovely location for a few years. We bought a little house that I adored in a suburb outside of “city limits” and settled into the gracious living the place […]

A letter to the daily prompter on grainy

Well, dang. I suppose I could discuss the numerous photos I have taken that ended up looking like sand had been poured over the camera lens…or possibly the numerous baking “fails” in my quest for a perfect cheesecake.  Except I have nothing further to say about either that hasn’t just been said.

Giving prompts such as “grainy”  really isn’t all that helpful.  Is there no way, Mr. Daily Prompter, that you could come up with a sentence?  You used to give sentences, you know.  As late as last year you gave lovely short phrases. Now, a single word is thrown to the masses like grains of rice thrown at a wedding and we are to create something.

It takes more than a word to create you know.

I think you are probably thinking “these are writers. They will write the rest”.

My response?  No, SOME of this crowd daily checking your prompts are writers. The rest of us just want to be.  Some of us are simply old ladies looking for some sort of creative outlet.

They have said it all. Reblog of the Shinbone Star

EDITOR’S NOTE: The 45th president of the United States went off the rails today in a vintage Trump racist diatribe that shook America to its core. Shinbone Star staff members quickly reacted to the latest outrage from the 45th president. The sound and the fury By ANNE-MARIE I have to admit, I’m shaken. I worked in […]

SparkyJen made me think..and that’s hard to do!

Yep, she did. She (SparkyJen or just Jen as I call her) made a lovely comment on another post that sort of ambled, wandered, promenaded along going nowhere until it loitered in the wrong space and time, then finally meandered away to other more important things.

Now if I can just remember where I was going with this post, we might wander on into something good. Continue reading

reblog of Gronda Morin: What is the alt-right?

NOTE: This post was originally published in April 2017 but I am reblogging it as it is still relevant. What is another Alt-Right/ White Supremacist zealot doing being part of the White House team. One day the history books are not going to let President Donald Trump, his surrogates and fellow republicans get away with […]
