The historic Women’s March on Washington DC and around the world took place today to protest the new President. Washington DC had over 1 million people and St. Paul had around 100,000. Amazing numbers.

The Inauguration was not supposed to turn out this way. I am sure that there is an alternative timeline/parallel universe out there where Hillary Clinton became our first female president.

Tonight was President Obama’s Farewell Address. Held in Chicago, he had the audience laughing and crying. Really the man is a gifted speaker. Its truly the end of an era.

People don’t like change, I get that. People like to bury their heads in the sand, I get that. But when you don’t pick the most […]
Election Day 2016! A historical day! I was #232 to vote in my small town and there was no line and no waiting. Well, I had to wait for the old election judge to finish her circling her word in her crossword puzzle, but that was about it. Really it took me longer to take […]
