Dear Mitch McConnell, you know what you can do with your ‘bipartisanship,’ right?

Can Pelosi and Schumer bargain with THIS? McConnell doesn’t want to meet half way, he wants to destroy us. Let him rant and rave all he wants; he put national security in jeopardy so he can win an election. This man is a TRAITOR to this country! He belongs behind bars, him and the rest of his “law and order” cronies!

via Election results 2018: Historic number of women to serve in Congress

This is fabulous, a record number of women elected to Congress, including women who are young (35 and under), Hispanic, African-American, and Native-American, and LGBT. Plus a number of state elected officials who are not all white, male, or heterosexual. Even in the face of the trump nightmare, America’s government is looking more like the real America.

Sounds and Words

On Saturday, November 10, I attended Sounds and Words, a fundraiser for the Moonstone Arts Center, held at District Council 1199C, 1315 Locust Street in Philadelphia. Moonstone has been the platform for poets (like me) to publish and perform their works.
