It is still quite early in the 2016 race for the White House. The chart below shows the current standing among the current Republican candidates. While I am as Liberal and Democratic as they come, I recognize it is important to pay attention to all candidates who are vying for the highest office in the land. Politics has an impact on all areas of life. The kind of air you breathe, the condition of the water you drink and even the items that are available for you to purchase are all touched by politics. You owe it to yourself to pay attention to what is going on in the political arenas from the smallest local race through the 2016 Presidential race and beyond.
Terrific Tuesday – it is terrific to know how to use the talents of others. Each Terrific Tuesday throughout the month of November has been dedicated to discussions of elections past and present. Our first Terrific Tuesday of November urged everyone, no matter who their candidate of choice, to vote. Then we looked at discussing election results respectfully.

At one point in the election cycle John Kerry came to Philadelphia and had a rally on the Parkway near the famous Philadelphia Museum of Art. My husband … Continue reading →

In November of 2000, my teenie bopper was a precocious 4 year old who was seeing talk about the Bush/Gore race all over the news as a result of her father’s political addiction. She decided Al Gore should win because he cared more about keeping water clean than did George Bush. It was cute to see her walking the streets of Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania with her Gore-Leiberman campaign button and the … Continue reading →
Terrific Tuesday – it is terrific to be able to discuss the election results sensibly. Each Terrific Tuesday throughout the month of November will be dedicated to discussions of elections past and present. Last week was the first Terrific Tuesday of November and I urged everyone, no matter who their candidate of choice, to go vote. Future Terrific Tuesdays will deal with a review the Al Gore/George Bush election and loot back at John Kerry’s political rally in Philadelphia when he was running for election. Last Tuesday was election day and Barack Obama was re-elected President of the United States of America. I am one of those crazy ultra left wing liberals people are warned about. Needless to say, I was pleased with the results of the election. What I have been less than please with is the levels of rudeness, discourtesy and disrespect I have seen from public … Continue reading →
It is terrific to live in a nation where you can pick the leader. I am one of those ultra left-wing liberal people. In my mind, Barack Obama is too far to the left. Everyone who knows that is not surprised that I am voting to re-elect President Barack Obama in this election. I am not going to write about that. I am writing to encourage everyone to vote.
