RAINBOW FLAG OF FREEDOM
By Steve Plonk

Hold the flag dear
Don't matter if you're "queer",

Fly the flag on your porch
Don't matter if you're "butch",

Rally round the flag, all dressed in drag,
Fly the rainbow flag of freedom.

Re: "Reflections from "Bizarro World"

I hope, like yourself, that Trump will not be re-elected and that the republicans will lose control of the Senate. :)

Sacred to the memory of Robert Hunter, 78, the lyricist for the Grateful Dead, who died on September 24, 2019. :(

Also, sacred to the memory of Elijah E. Cummings, 68, Baltimore Congressman & civil rights leader,
who died on October 17, 2019. :(

Re: "Reflections from "Bizarro World"

Kind folks and gentle people, it is hard to keep up with all of Trump's jam-ups since August. There is a formal impeachment inquiry... Even Joe Biden has asked for Trump to be inquired upon. Like I have said before, if emoluments, finances, and various obstructions are looked into: Trump will even l...

Re: Chat Spot

I've been getting better. I started driving again in the second week of April. Went through a stint of physical therapy and am now able to use my computer more often. I hope all of you have had a nice summer. This is my seventieth summer. I continue to hope to get a new computer as soon as possible-...

Re: A Plea for Common Sense

Prayers for beneficial treatment couldn't hurt. But,the need for collective action to
relieve the overcrowding, nasty conditions-- even actual kidnapping-- at the border, must
begin immediately. I am part of the choir who condemns the cruel treatment of latino
refugees as I'm sure most of us are.

Re: Happy Birthday, Nineteenth Amendment!

It has been one hundred years since the Nineteenth Amendment was introduced. Next year,
it will be a hundred years since women got the right to vote in our country. I hope that someday
wlthin the next decade we will have a woman president.

Re: "Reflections from "Bizarro World"

Sorry, it took so long to answer back. My computer was "on the fritz". It is doubtful that Hillary would run again...I watched some of the Democratic debates & find myself undecided, but waiting to see who emerges from the fray. I think that insurance must be open-ended toward "single payer". I seem...

Re: "Reflections from "Bizarro World"

Looks like congress tried to stand up to Trump and his "national emergency" at the border. Too bad that they
didn't have enough votes, so far, to override Trump's veto. Congress must continue to stand up to Trump's agenda.

Re: "Reflections from "Bizarro World"

Trump appears to be creating his own national emergency all by himself! His own cabinet and the Congress need
to stand up to him. I appreciate your well wishes and will post as much as I am able.

Re: "Reflections from "Bizarro World"

Steve Plonk here...I just couldn't be silent during this awful government shutdown. Both parties, collectively, need to stand up to Trump if they haven't already. The president has no excuse to hold the paychecks to government workers hostage because of a petulant tantrum about "the wall". It is bot...
