For a Senator to defy the Constitution, and stand in open defiance of it because he worships a freakish would-be dictator, is beyond outrage, and cannot be tolerated.
Share your favorite songs about mothers, family, children and love as we join in a tribute to those wonderful women who brought us into the world and taught us what it means to be loved as well as those who grew up to become mothers and taught the same to their children.
If the United States Supreme Court were to have only one responsibility, I would have it be to protect the vote and the voter. But, the sad truth is that a highly organized effort to make sure that no vote is ever fair has plagued us almost from the founding of the country.
No one ever believed that these dishonorable Senate Republicans would allow a fair trial. And they were right.
This weekend's theme is about health and the body. Songs about doctors, health, feelings, and parts of the body (except the naughty bits).
This weekend, we dedicate our music thread to a very historic and irreplaceable American Woman, The Notorious RBG. Share whatever songs you choose in a tribute to her, whether about women, justice, heroes, etc.
