COMEUPPANCE – Marilyn Armstrong

FOWC with Fandango — Comeuppance When I think of the word, I think of Trump. I think of Lindsay Graham. I think of politicians. Then I get depressed and try to think of anything else. Something humorous although some days, humor is hard to find. I read an article this morning that said that unless more … Continue reading COMEUPPANCE – Marilyn Armstrong

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. Despite having no money, I try to donate something to Durrell on the Isle of Jersey where they try to keep vanishing … Continue reading I SAID I WOULDN’T BUT I DID IT ANYWAY – Marilyn Armstrong

LONG, RAMBLING POLITICAL & ECOLOGICAL POST – Marilyn Armstrong

Are "old timers" in Congress the problem as opposed to the bloated egos and narrow minds of Tea Partyites and Trumpets? How about those right-wing religious nutters? Most of them were just recently elected, have no understanding of how government works, … Continue reading TERM LIMITS ARE A REALLY BAD IDEA – Marilyn Armstrong

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. I have read similar stories in the Washington Post and other newspaper, online and offline about every potential candidate. It's almost as if we don't want to find a viable candidate because there's something wrong with everyone. I … Continue reading DO WE WANT TO ELECT ANYONE? – Marilyn Armstrong

TERM LIMITS: A REALLY TERRIBLE IDEA – Marilyn Armstrong

I keep reading the same crap. Why is this so hard to understand? So you believe term-limits will solve our political problems. Why would you think that? Are "old timers" in Congress the big problem -- as opposed to the bloated egos and narrow minds of the Tea Party, Trumpocrats, and racists? All of whom were recently … Continue reading TERM LIMITS: A REALLY TERRIBLE IDEA – Marilyn Armstrong
