The title of this diary is a paraphrasing of the phrase, women and minorities hardest hit. In this diary I am applauding women and minorities who have the courage and convictions to be on the November 2010 ballots as candidates for the US House in some of the most difficult districts for Republicans to run in. I hope all of them win, but in truth if any of them win it will be a sign that the Ds are having really really bad election results. Face it, a Republican candidate in any of these districts is only going to win if registered D voters like and relate enough as a person to vote for them in spite of the party label.
I usually just put a photo of people I write diaries about, but these people are so special that I put a short video up for each of them. They are living in Harlem, Chicago south side, Philly, suburbs just east of Washington, DC, St. Louis east side, Dallas, LA, Atlanta, Memphis, or Portland, OR. They don’t want to move, and they do not give a crap about what some Eyore poll addicts think about their chances of winning. They may not all be that slick and smooth as a politician, but they are not afraid to have conversations with people in their districts about how they feel about things. If you want to have a productive conversation with somebody sometimes you have to park the political labels at the door before you enter and talk about your thoughts instead of the focus-group based message some handlers tell you to use. I really hope you watch the Michel Faulkner vid below. He is the biggest underdog of them all in NY-15, and he speaks best from the heart with a passion about what he believes.

Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES The latest persuasive tactic of Trump supporters is to say we can not be #nevertrump because of the Supreme Court. This is usually in the form of either “or else Hillary gets to pick the Supreme Court” or “don’t you want Justice Cruz.” First, let’s ignore all the consistent evidence that Trump will lose in an historic landslide to | Read More »
Thanks to the “rigged” system that has awarded Donald Trump way more delegates than he has received popular votes, the 60% of Republicans who do not want Donald Trump to be their nominee are down to very nearly their last shot.
Share on Facebook 1 1 SHARES If you didn’t think that the subject of transgenderism in this country would be labeled a kind of new civil rights, then you’ve not been paying attention. Liberals yearn for social justice relevance. They have attempted to connect a feelings-based subject matter, transgender “rights”, to actual struggles of the past in order to give life to their emotional grievances. The continuing drama surrounding | Read More »
