TokyoSand at politicalcharge.org posted this reminder about voting in primaries, along with some very good reasons to do so. Please give serious consideration to what she says. By the way, my fellow Texans, ours is March 1st. Get it on your calendar. Thanks! Larry
If you want to shape politics, there are few ways to be more impactful than voting in a primary election. Nationwide, primaries only see an average of 20% turnout. Instead of delving into why people don’t vote in the primaries, let’s talk about why people SHOULD vote in the primaries: ✦ With fewer people voting, every…
I promise I’ll come up with an original post soon, folks, but lately, so many other bloggers are so eloquently addressing issues which concern us all, I feel everyone must read them. Here’s the latest example, from Keith, whose writings I greatly respect. Larry
We have a relative with multiple chronic issues who is now in great pain and cannot stand up on her own. She was sent to an urgent care clinic because the hospitals are full up. She is now waiting in line at the nearest hospital to get a MRI as they cannot figure out what was wrong after the Xrays at the urgent care clinic showed no breaks.
Yet, if she is admitted, they may not have any hospital beds. You see, the hospitals are overrun by COVID patients who the significant majority of which have been unvaccinated.

That was in the morning.
I also read of the death of one of my favorite singers, Marvin Aday, better…

And I’m damn tired of it. And so is my friend, Jill Dennison, whose post I’m pleased to share:
President Biden is doing the best he can, folks, given what he has to work with! No one man can solve all the nation’s problems … he needs the help of others, but the only thing President Biden is getting from others is obstruction and criticism. Thus far, I think he’s done a pretty damn […]
It’s been a year to the day since the insurrection in our nation’s capital. TokyoSand at politicalcharge.org wrote this letter a week later, and it’s every bit as relevant today. Larry
This is the open letter I wrote to Republicans this time last year following the insurrection on January 6th. I stand by these words and find myself even more committed to defeating the party and its members who have done nothing to course correct after that tragic day. Dear Republican Party members, No, we will…
I swoon for chippy paint, a gorgeous patina and a fabulous song!!! I love great music (read: Bruce Springsteen & Otis Redding), white lilacs, walking in freshly fallen snow, the Golden Girls, road trips and the fall!!!
