The US is a country permeated by oppression, racism, sexism, anti-semitism, homophobia, xenophobia and countless other forms of discrimination. How can we keep it all straight?
We need a national database full of all oppressors and their transgressions.
You should be able to type in someone’s name and learn of all their instances of discrimination and political incorrectness. Finally we can turn the tables and put these evil people in their place. We could use it to deny job applications, reject loan requests and make more informed voting decisions.
Of course I’m not trained to maintain the database, but I call on someone else to do so. Of course it would be up to the citizens to report all offending instances and attitudes. It could be the greatest resource in human history
As I type this, we’re weeks away from Trump’s inauguration, but the powers that be are already starting work to impeach him. But what would that leave us with? A Mike Pence presidency. No thank you. As bad as Trump might seem, I don’t want to live in a nation ruled by Pence.
I don’t want the government to control the media. I don’t want gay marriages annulled. I don’t want gays banned from the military. I don’t want to eliminate paid family leave. I don’t want to replace evolution with creationism in schools.
Pence was the old testament, fire and brimstone bible-thumper the republicans needed to balance the ticket.
As much as you might dislike and disrespect Trump, at least he isn’t Mike Pence.
As U.S. citizens, or illegal aliens, we all have the right – and the duty – to perform a citizen’s arrest when we see a crime, such as sexual assault. So the next time you see a man hug, kiss, or put his arm around a woman without receiving prior consent, you should place him under citizen’s arrest and make sure the authorities are notified.
If you can possibly get video evidence of the attack, it would help in prosecution. So when in public, please have your phones or other video cameras at the ready. You never know when one of these crimes might occur, but a place where men and women gather socially is a potential crime scene. I’m talking about parties, bars and nightclubs, and the like. With the holiday season upon us, look for a spike in assaults, and be ready!
White men like Thomas Jefferson and Ben Franklin wrote the US Constitution. Not surprisingly, they wrote it to favor white men who owned land. Women were intended to be second class citizens, and African Americans weren’t even thought of as citizens. According to the Dredd Scott case, they weren’t even people.
So why do we honor these horrible white men? Why do we erect memorials, place their likeness on our cash, and name things after them?
Instead, we should wipe them from our collective consciousness and replace them with true heroes such as Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., Tony Dungy, and Oprah Winfrey.
I’m not saying you should deface the Jefferson Memorial or the $100 bill. We at Liberal-Democrat.net have all taken a solemn vow to never condone crime.
What you should do is organize protests, write to your media or representatives, and post on social media. Together we can erase our sexist, racist shame and replace it with a future of equality and acceptance.
If you watched the second Presidential Debate, you learned that Donald Trump has rated women’s looks numerically, on a scale of 0-10. He has also kissed women without obtaining prior consent.
These actions are deplorable! Anyone who acts like this should be locked up forever. They certainly shouldn’t be President of The United States of America.
Trump defended his actions by calling them “locker room talk.” Baloney. This kind of talk isn’t suitable for a locker room or anyplace else. It isn’t even suitable for a prison cell, which is where Trump belongs.
The only acceptable action from this point forward is for Trump to drop out of the race, sell his assets, and donate them to women’s causes, and then turn himself over to authorities for prosecution. His words and actions are not forgivable.
We must all live our lives as if every word and every action is being recorded for public display. If you hear anyone rate a woman’s looks, be sure to record it and then make the recording public. Demand the offender lose his job, at the very least. If someone tries to kiss you without first obtaining written, witnessed, and notarized consent, notify the police immediately. You have been sexually assaulted and time is of the essence if the guilty person is to be successfully prosecuted.
I can only hope that one of Trump’s assault victims comes forward and reports him before election day. Can you imagine electing a President who is not only a sexist, but also a rapist? We’re this close folks. Don’t let this happen.
