Today is THE Day …. “🗳 Midterms 2018 are Here …. Vote as if Your Life Depended on It …. I Voted Early 🗳 …. “!!


~~November 6, 2018~~ 

THE DAY HAS ARRIVED

THIS IS THE ONLY POST ABOUT THIS TOPIC I’M POSTING

I strongly believe that today marks one of the most critical and important election in my lifetime.

For me personally, the past two years have been a steady decline into the darkest belly of the America that I didn’t know.

If America continues down this path, the future of its citizens, the children, the environment and so much more will be on the line.

Most of all, the spirit of love, kindness, caring, cooperation will be replaced by hatred, racism, xenophobia, isolationism, nativism, tribalism.

VToday

VOTE AS IF YOUR LIFE DEPENDED ON IT 

BECAUSE THE AMERICAN WAY, AS WE KNOW IT DOES

I won’t be watching news, polls, voting results today at all.

I will wait until Wednesday morning so see where the nation is heading.

‘What About Us? …. “🌸🎼🌸  P!nk’s new Captivating, Mesmerizing Video …. The Song for The Times 🌸🎼🌸 …. “!!

WHAT ABOUT US?

I’ve heard this song playing on the radio.

It was’t until last night’s VMA Awards and today that I went searching for the video. P!nk has always had serious, impacting messages to share in her songs.

This is another example at a time when it’s most needed.

A protest song!

AMERICAN 2020 CENSUS

LGBTQ Americans Won’t Be Counted in 2020 U.S. Census After All
by MARY EMILY O’HARA

LGBTQ advocacy groups are outraged after proposed questions regarding sexual orientation and gender identity were quickly removed Tuesday, March 28, from a just-released draft of the 2020 U.S. Census.

The U.S. Census Bureau, which is part of the Department of Commerce, is required to issue a list of categories it plans to track three years before the survey is conducted.

Advocacy groups have been campaigning for years to include questions about sexual orientation and gender identity, and were briefly elated when the 2020 Census draft was released. But hopes were dashed when the proposed addition suddenly disappeared, and a statement was issued by the Census bureau that called the LGBTQ inclusion a mistake.

REST IN PRIDE

~Rainbow Flag Creator Gilbert Baker Dead at 65~

Thank you Gilbert for giving our community one of our greatest gifts.

You are a trailblazer for #LGBTQ youth around the world.

You will be missed!

It Gets Better Project

Gilbert Baker (June 2, 1951 – March 31, 2017) was an openly gay American artist and civil rights activist who designed the rainbow flag in 1978. Baker’s flag became widely associated with LGBT rights causes, a symbol of pride that became ubiquitous in the decades since its debut.

The colors on the Rainbow Flag reflect the diversity of the LGBT community.

When Baker raised the first rainbow flags at San Francisco Pride (his group raised two flags at the Civic Center) on June 25, 1978, it had eight colors, each with a symbolic meaning:

Hot Pink: sexuality
Red: life
Orange: healing
Yellow: sunlight
Green: nature
Turquoise: magic/art
Blue: serenity/harmony
Violet: spirit

Neil Gorsuch …. “several of his many ‘minuses’ …. wrong for SCOTUS, IMHO …. “!!


Gorsuch

~~March 24, 2017~~ 

WORSE THAN SCALIA

IN MY HUMBLE OPINION

Neil McGill Gorsuch (born August 29, 1967) is an American federal appellate judge on the United States Court of Appeals for the Tenth Circuit.

On February 1, 2017, Drumpf nominated Gorsuch to be an Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, to fill the seat left vacant after the death of Justice Antonin Scalia eleven months earlier.

Gorsuch is a proponent of textualism in statutory interpretation and originalism in interpreting the U.S. Constitution.

Gorsuch Says Marriage Equality “Absolutely Settled Law,” But Gets Indignant About LGBT Rights

(LGBT OPINION)

Earlier on Tuesday, March 21, Senator Richard Durbin asked Gorsuch about his views on LGBT people, and President Trump’s nominee seemed annoyed about having to respond to the question.

“What about them?” he asked. “They’re people.”

When Durbin asked the nominee to give an example of a decision or statement he made that was favorable to LGBT people, Gorsuch declared that he feels all people are entitled to equal treatment under the law.

“Senator, I’ve tried to treat each case and each person as a person, not a ‘this kind of person,’ not a ‘that kind of person’ – a person,” Gorsuch replied.

“Equal justice under law is a radical promise in the history of mankind.”

Supreme Court nominee Neil Gorsuch was grilled about LGBT rights during his confirmation hearings this week, and while the U.S. Circuit judge referred to same-sex marriage as “settled law,” he refused to share his own opinion on the matter.

~What is the goal of A Day Without a Woman?~
The goal is to highlight the economic power and significance that women have in the US and global economies, while calling attention to the economic injustices women and gender nonconforming people continue to face.

 We play an indispensable role in the daily functions of life in all of society, through paid & unpaid, seen & unseen labor.  

We must have the power to control our bodies and be free from gender norms, expectations and stereotypes.

We must free ourselves and our society from the constant awarding of power, agency and resources disproportionately to masculinity, to the exclusion of others.

We must end the hiring discrimination that women, particularly mothers, women of color, women with disabilities, Indigenous women, lesbian, queer and trans women still face each day in our nation.  

We believe that creating workforce opportunities that reduce discrimination against women and mothers allow economies to thrive. Nations and industries that support and invest in care-giving and basic workplace protections – including benefits like paid family leave, access to affordable childcare, sick days, healthcare, fair pay, vacation time, and healthy work environments – have shown growth and increased capacity.

We believe in Gender Justice and the protection of the human rights of gay, lesbian, bi, queer, trans, Two-Spirit and gender nonconforming people.

We believe in an economy powered by transparency, accountability, security and equity.

We believe that all workers must have the right to organize and fight for a living minimum wage, and that unions and other labor associations are critical to a healthy and thriving economy for all. Undocumented and migrant, farm workers and domestic workers must be included in our labor protections, and we stand in full solidarity with the sex workers’ rights movement. We recognize that exploitation for sex and labor in all forms is a violation of human rights.
