2021…Are You Having Fun Yet?

I am.  Twenty-Twenty-One so far, has been a year of moving forward.  Trump lost.  Progressives have gained some ground within and without the Democratic Party.  And we continue trying to make things better.

I must admit though, I am absolutely ready for Progressives to be a majority in the House and Senate in 2022.  I truly believe that it is possible.  Personally speaking, I am tired of both Democrats and Republicans.  I want people who are willing and ready to do big things for the American people, and not so much for corporations– because Continue reading “2021…Are You Having Fun Yet?”
