Why Women March

Today has been an active day on social media, with many people asking why the women were marching. I guess they have forgotten all the things that our new President said and did during his campaign, not to mention his behavior before that.

Apparently they haven't paid attention to a couple of people he has nominated for key cabinet positions, who clearly are not qualified, especially the Department of Education.

But those are the obvious reasons.

I decided to find out some of the reasons, in their own words, that people participated in the Women's March yesterday.

Fortunately, Twitter makes it easy.

Why Women March

For kids with special needs, who deserve an education that will allow them to reach their full potential. #vote no to DeVos #WhyIMarched

To send a message to congress and DJT.  We will not accept  fascism, sexism or racism. We are awake,watching and involved #WhyIMarched

My vagina
My choice!

I marched for women's bodies, POC, freedom of religion, immigrants, lgbtqia?, the environment, and liberty & justice for all. #WhyIMarched

For my daughter and grand-daughters, and with my daughter to protect and guard women's and human rights  #WhyIMarched

Unsure what's worse, reading a post calling my faith into question because I marched or seeing my dad "like" it. Both are #WhyIMarched

I marched yesterday to support my LGBTQ friends and family #WhyIMarched

#whyImarched to support human rights & equality, no matter a person's race, ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or legal status

I've seen better cabinets at IKEA ! #WhyIMarched

#WhyIMarched because birth control profoundly lowers the abortion rate. If GOP was truly prolife, they'd support it. They just hate women.

@realDonaldTrump really did drain the swamp. He drained it of all decency. Which is #whyIMarched today. #WomansMarch

Fear is no excuse to sink backward into darkness. #WhyIMarched #WomensMarchOnWashington

These are a few reasons why women marched and will continue to band together for the good of this country, and the world. 

We are not done.

Spitzer uses friend's name to register motel rooms

Poor Mr. Fox, Mr. George Fox that is, who is now known for renting motel rooms with hookers, and formerly Gov. Spitzer's friend.

I say formerly because it appears that the good governor was using his name (George Fox) to reserve motel rooms where he was meeting with his very expensive prostitute.

And another "great" politician bites the dust...

Mr. Spitzer was elected in a landslide in 2006, capitalizing on his popularity he won as the “Sheriff of Wall Street” during eight years as attorney general. With a reputation for personal probity and independence, he pledged to bring higher ethical standards to the statehouse.

The more good you do, the more evil tries to embrace you.

Beware, even democrats can fall prey.

Sad that his legacy will just be one of another hypocrite because his true character was one of just rising to the top of his game and not the integrity he falsely showed to the public.

Homemade Mosquito Repellent

The Zika virus carried by mosquitoes has become a hot topic and is the basis for many unwarranted fears for most people in the United States. While it is a dangerous virus that can be sexually transmitted (one reported in S.C.), here in the US, it only affects about 1000 people per year.

As of August 18, 2016, there are 34 known cases of Zika virus in South Carolina.

* So far president Obama has asked congress for $1.9 billion to help develop a Zika* The White House also is seeking flexibility to use some of its unspent funding for the Ebola crisis to respond to Zika or other infectious diseases.

Each state should also provide information. The link for South Carolina is, which provides useful information on symptoms, transmission and prevention.

How the Rich and Famous are Voting

This election year has been one of the most interesting, and most controversial election years of my life. The politicians and their supporters are confused, angry, and sometimes downright ignorant. The lies and accusations are tossed around easier than a salad.

This political circus has served to inspire many questions for me, not all of which serve a great purpose - such as this one.

Then again, it wasn't that long ago that a movie star was elected president.

How are the rich and famous voting? I found endless resources for celebrity supporters of Hillary, but those supporting Trump are apparently not as vocal about their choice.
