I SAID I WOULDN’T BUT I DID IT ANYWAY – Marilyn Armstrong

I said I wouldn't donate money to anyway, but I sent $6 to Elizabeth Warren. I couldn't help myself. I have so little money to give to anyone, it's always a hard choice.

DO WE WANT TO ELECT ANYONE? – Marilyn Armstrong

I was just glancing through another post on The New Yorker asking whether Joe Biden is electable.

IT’S NOT FUNNY ANYMORE – Reblog – THE SHINBONE STAR

THE SHINBONE STAR WRITTEN BY MADMEGSBLOG - November 4, 2018 As a Canadian watching helplessly from north of the border, all I can do is scream at the laptop and the television and type “VOTE” over and over until my fingers cramp up. There used to be a time I could tell you the current political … Continue reading IT’S NOT FUNNY ANYMORE – Reblog – THE SHINBONE STAR
