Living Blue in a Red State

If you're a Democrat living in the south, your are most likely living Blue in a Red state. If you speak out about issues, values, and equality, you are quite often met with scowls, slurs, and vile insults - even from your family and friends.

I salute all of you who join me in this struggle to keep equal rights, justice, and acceptable moral values alive in this country.

Today, I especially want to thank the majority of voters in Alabama for voting their conscience and not their party.

you did the right thing

Values matter.  

Integrity matters.

Honesty matters.

Equality matters.

Thank you Alabama!

Why do white women support and vote for morally bankrupt men

When I was young, I was warned to be particular about what I wore, because how I looked might trigger bad behavior from men.

When I was young, I was warned about whom I should trust, because boys and men were never to be trusted alone with members of the opposite sex.

When rape, sexual assault, or even harassment happened, it was mostly blamed on the female, because males apparently were not considered intelligent or mature enough to take responsibility for their own actions, regardless of their religion, level of education, or their age.

Enough of this nonsense. I am now 63 years old and it's time for this to change. 

Men need to grow up, and women need to hold them accountable. 


There is a huge difference between flirting and sexual harassment, and anyone who tells you it's similar is simply trying to excuse their own bad behavior, or the bad behavior of someone they care about. Hand them a dictionary marked at #flirting and #harassment

Perhaps then, they will understand that there are #NoMoreExcuses.

This is the year of reckoning.

We are all human beings and we are all accountable for our behavior.

Why do white women support and vote for morally bankrupt men?

Religious dogma has brainwashed many women, especially those in the south, and especially those whom have never studied any subject since high school.

This group may also include women who feel they have too much to lose if they have an opinion that might insult their "man." They are happy with their circumstance and can't be bothered to help or defend their victimized sisters and brothers.

Here are some Biblical items to share with these women: 

Passages copied from (words of Jesus in red).

Your God is neither male nor female, therefore males are not superior to females. See the words of Jesus in John 4:24 (KJV).  
God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.
You are ALL created in the image of God. See your Bible, Genesis 1:27, King James Version (KJV)
So God created man (meaning mankind) in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
A man who oppresses people, is not a man of God, regardless of what he claims to believe. Matthew 7:21 King James Version (KJV).  
Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven.
Actions speak louder than words. Matthew 7:20-22, King James Version (KJV). 
Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

Do unto others as you would have them do unto you. Luke 6:31, King James Version (KJV). 
And as ye would that men should do to you, do ye also to them likewise.

You reap what you sow. Galatians 6:7, King James Version (KJV).
Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.

"White women have thwarted the women’s rights movement from the 19th century onward."

NBC News: White Female Supporters of Roy Moore

One more Bible verse and discussion for good measure...

Who is your neighbor? 

Would you agree that if a female (or male - as the case may be) is not your wife / girlfriend / betrothed, etc., that she then indeed belongs to someone else - if not yet, then in the future? Does the circumstance of not being married or engaged entitle your "male" government representatives, pastors, deacons, elders, partners, husbands, fathers, brothers, cousins, friends, and acquaintances, free will to harass, assault, attack and/or abuse her? 
Then why do so many self proclaimed "godly" men believe it is not only okay, but indeed expected and accepted social behavior for them to not only covet said females (or males), but to act on their foolish physical whims and desires - without consequence?
Explain to me how anyone claiming to be righteous, or even claiming to believe in Jesus Christ and his teachings, can justify, applaud, endorse, and vote - for such a feeble excuse for a righteous man as Donald J. Trump or Roy Moore.

Deuteronomy 5:21, King James Version (KJV)

21 Neither shalt thou desire thy neighbour's wife, neither shalt thou covet thy neighbour's house, his field, or his manservant, or his maidservant, his ox, or his ass, or any thing that is thy neighbour's.

As Marcie Blanco, managing editor of the Clayman Institute for Gender Research at Stanford University, so eloquently stated in her article at THINK on

There are some women—white women in particular—who would rather cleave onto abusive men rather than support other women.

I consider such women to be ignorant, which is to say that they are uninformed because they choose to be, which is vastly different from being stupid. However, in my opinion, choosing to remain in ignorant bliss is definitely not a sign of intelligence.

Beware of any political party who seeks to limit access to higher education

Beware of any political party who seeks to limit access to higher education...

Here's the headline and story, and actions that I am referring to:

"The GOP bill to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, introduced by Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) on Friday, would eliminate the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, which erases student debt for those who work for qualifying employers after making payments for 10 years."  (see link at end of article)

When I was living in Phoenix, I remember having a conversation with a young man, a young Christian man who was studying to be a church youth director. His opinion was one that shocked me to the core and provided further proof that our "religious" have been indoctrinated into a system that has little, if anything, to do with the teachings of their Jesus.

This young man said that it wasn't fair for people to get student loans and student grants, because it made his degree less relevant. Yes. He said that, and apparently, it's a popular opinion if the actions of Rep. Foxx are any indication.

In other words, the wealthy think that higher education should be reserved for them because they are the elite, and they want to keep it that way. It's part of what makes them "special."

Regardless of how they justify it, any limitations to higher education are the beginning of a landslide on a slippery slope.

As the apparent dumbing down of Americans continues...

The GOP wants to make it even harder to receive a university degree by crippling current pathways for repayment of college loans....

Only the wealthy should have access to universities... that is the apparent end result of new legislation limiting current help for student debt repayment.

Now if you're wondering if Rep. Virginia Foxx of N.C. considers herself a "Christian," she does. Certainly not by my standards or the standards of Jesus Christ, but definitely by today's standards as exemplified by popular evangelical leaders such as Franklin Graham.

Here's the link as proof of her (Rep. Virginia Foss) religious claims. If you read the book, remember her true colors are shining loud and clear by her actions, which certainly do not embrace the teachings, the life, or the heart of her Christ.

Say, or write, what you will. 

Actions speak louder than words.

I've never seen such a "lost" group of people as we are witnessing today in the GOP. If they weren't claiming that their religion was at the top of their priority list, then their actions wouldn't be as disturbing. They would still be disgusting, but not as disturbing

"The GOP bill to reauthorize the Higher Education Act, introduced by Rep. Virginia Foxx (R-N.C.) on Friday, would eliminate the Public Service Loan Forgiveness program, which erases student debt for those who work for qualifying employers after making payments for 10 years." 

GOP bill would eliminate student loan forgiveness for public service


 Here's what it says on the 74 year old Rep. Foxx's government website:

The nonpartisan magazine National Journal has consistently ranked Foxx as one of the most conservative members of the North Carolina Congressional Delegation. She also has a lifetime 96 percent approval rating from the American Conservative Union.

Sad, isn't it? But conservatives think this is a good thing.

It's time for progressives to speak out, and we do that by showing up to vote on election day.

SMH at the elitist, conservative, idiocy spreading like the plague in our country.

May the force be with us.

hard core elitists
Trump and Foxx (Hard core elitists)

Beware of any political party 
who seeks to limit access to higher education 
by reserving said access for the elitists wealthiest.

Trump Blames Schumer for Diversity Visa Program

Are politicians and the media truly surprised and uninformed (or misinformed) about the Diversity Visa Program? Or are they feigning surprise to further the drama surrounding the story they wish to tell?

I, a voting citizen, NOT a politician or elected official, knew about the Diversity Visa Program prior to yesterday. I also know that these people were indeed, being vetted.  

The amazement spilling from some of these politicians and journalists is disturbing. 

I am beyond tired of ignorance, or feigned ignorance, which is even more shameful in my opinion. 

Apparently, if people (the media, the president, the citizens) act shocked by the facts that you (the politician) were already aware of, then it's okay to pretend that you (the elected representative) knew nothing about the subject / law / incident. 

The problem with that should be obvious. 

If you are an elected official, and you claim to know nothing about the Diversity Visa Program, then you should resign - it's that simple. There is no excuse for your ignorance. 

Unlike Trump, you cannot get away with blaming one solitary politician for a bill!

Trump blames Schumer for Diversity Visa Program.

This makes about as much sense as blaming Hillary Clinton for Benghazi. 

In other words, it's idiotic. 

It's a ploy to divert attention from one person to another, regardless of the cost - and I, for one, am disgusted by this behavior. 

But I digress...

I guess it's no surprise that our president is ill-informed on past events (and current ones for that matter) in Washington DC. 

While Senator Schumer did sponsor the original bill that included the lottery program, it was voted on and passed by Republicans as well as Democrats. 

Schumer and the "gang of eight" attempted to end the program in 2013 with the Comprehensive Immigration Reform bill. 

They were not successful.

Read more at Politifact:

Gang of Eight from Wikipedia:

In the context of proposed immigration reform, the Gang of Eight consists of the following four Democratic and four Republican senators:[4]

Further Reading at The Atlantic:

While I am not in favor of the Diversity Visa Program, I would be remiss if I did not put this into proper perspective - this single incident by one terrorist, is not enough reason to end immigration, any more than it is a reason to end driving in the city.
