How many husbands control the votes
of their wives? We´ll never know

Guardian [UK], by Rebecca Solnit

Original Article

Posted By:StormCnter, 11/20/2018 9:35:03 AM

Progressive organizer Annabel Park told the story that made me start to wonder. “I can’t stop thinking about this woman I met while doorknocking for Beto in Dallas,” Annabel wrote on social media a few days before the midterm elections. “She lived in a sprawling low-income apartment complex. After I knocked a couple of times, she answered the door with her husband just behind her. She looked petrified and her husband looked menacing behind her. When I made my pitch about Senate candidate Beto O’Rourke, her husband yelled, ‘We’re not interested.’

Horsefeathers! Even her anecdotes ring false.

I hate to disappoint her but my husband and two sons come to me and ask who we´re voting for because I´m the one most familiar with the candidates and the issues.

If this actually happened, this silly Beto woman has no idea what was going on with this couple when she knocked on their door.

I have seen two women yell at their kids in the supermarket. We have to stop allowing women to have kids, and also ban them from supermarkets. This decision is based on my own research.

This just cracks me up! I´m exactly like #1. I help to make sure my husband votes right!!! Lol!!! And our kids come to me for help on candidates and propositions.

Ms. Solnit, is a nit-wit leftist who wouldn´t know my voting abilities if she tried. This dope thinks everyone should think as she does. Praise the Lord we don´t!!!

Stupid people like this shouldn´t be able to voice their stupid opinions.

MAGA!!! KAG!!! If I wasn´t so lawful, Ms. Solnit, I´d vote 50 times or more for Mr. Trump!

At my house our relationship has evolved from her asking me who to vote for ( I wouldn´t tell her) to her asking me the different candidate´s stance..she can make her own decisions. I´m tired of picking restaurants as well, but I haven´t worked out a method for that one...I´m the one that is usually hungry.

I thought this ridiculous and laughable notion was put to pasture with Hitlery´s screaming and wailing--

Only the voter knows who they voted for, and no matter how much blather the media tries to cook up about "stolen" elections, voter intimidation, and "suppresed" voting, the results are what they are.

Now let´s make sure the the mistakes of the past are non longer going to be excuses in the future for poor chain of custody of ballot boxes, and poll watchers looking for irregularities that would call into question the veracity of the results.

#1 has it right. I am the one in my house who keeps up with the politics, and I advise my family of the facts as I find them. Now I understand how democrat lofo homes could be this way possibly, but most homes do not have abusive husbands controlling how his wife votes. This is just another lame attempt to blame it all again on those white guys they hate so much.

I am far more conservative than my husband. He warmed up to Trump because of my influence. He is no pushover, and took the time to really look at Trump´s policies and accomplishments because I discussed things with him.

Seeing the articles about conservative doormats and mean ol´ wascally white racist women only cheapens the democrat brand.

I call shenanigans! That couple was probably in the middle of an argument when she showed up. My husband doesn´t tell me who to vote for and I don´t tell him who to vote for. We´re both pretty similar in our political views, although I may be slightly more conservative. I am the one who usually reads the voter´s pamphlet, so he often asks me what my take on something is. He is free to vote as he sees fit, as am I.

Oh brother or oh bother?

We vote by mail ballot in our area for the county to save money. My daughter and I filled out ours and her husbands with that big sole R and mailed them all on time.

Was it filled out to his directions? And -here´s the real funny to toss in--do the signatures match?

Is there one rule for conservative women and one for liberals?

Every Oscar Best Picture Winner, Ranked

Every year starting in late August and ending sometime around late February, Hollywood is consumed with winning an eight-and-a-half-pound gold trophy. Even in a world overrun with awards shows, the Oscars remain the grandest prize, and a Best Picture victory cements filmmakers and actors’ place in history. It also means that, for the rest of time, a lot of people will complain that your movie wasn’t that great and should have lost to some other movie they felt was eminently more deserving. It’s very easy to second-guess the Academy on its Best Picture picks, but while putting together

$1,973 LEDs and the Green New Deal
Wall Street Journal, by Editorial    Original Article

The Green New Deal that Democrats unveiled last week has a grand ambition to eliminate fossil fuels in 10 years, retrofit every building in America, and guarantee high-paying jobs in the bargain. If you want to see how that works in the real world, consider the public housing projects near Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s New York office. The New York City Housing Authority (Nycha) has a more modest goal of a 30% reduction in greenhouse-gas emissions by 2027. As part of its plan, Nycha is switching to LED lighting,which lasts longer than incandescent bulbs and consumes less energy.

It’s fitting that William Barr’s confirmation as attorney general happened just as two powerful law-enforcement figures were trading accusations involving President Trump. Mr. Barr’s greatest challenge isn’t antitrust deals, immigration policy or even handling special counsel Robert Mueller. His overriding challenge is to reboot a Justice Department that has shredded its reputation and lost the confidence of Congress and the public. It’s hard to feel confident in law enforcement when a former deputy director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation, Andrew McCabe, reveals

VATICAN CITY—Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston, chief adviser to Pope Francis on protecting children from sexual abuse, called a meeting with top papal aides in 2017, concerned the Vatican wasn’t living up to its promise of “zero tolerance.” An appeals panel set up by the pope had reduced the punishments of a number of Catholic priests found guilty of abusing minors. In some cases, the panel canceled their dismissal from the priesthood and gave them short suspensions instead. “If this gets out, it will cause a scandal,” Cardinal O’Malley told Cardinal Secretary of State Pietro Parolin,

It is clear that the United States government, far more than the Russian one, interfered in the 2016 campaign. Figures throughout the Obama administration were using their power to investigate Hillary Clinton’s opponent and leaking that information to pols like Harry Reid and sympathetic members of the press to hurt Trump. Many of those figures — from John Brennan to James Comey to Susan Rice — appear on television these days displaying the very anti-Trump bias that drove their official actions during the campaign. We’re told gravely that the Mueller and Congressional investigations aim to protect the people’s democracy

How many other people watched the entire 80 or 85 minutes of President Trump’s rally in El Paso, Texas, Monday night on Fox? The pre-rally expectation was that this event would be an effort to build support for the border wall. Instead, it obviously was a test-run of issues for the 2020 campaign, covering everything from A to Zzz. At 9:55 ET, Sean Hannity cut away from the speech to denounce the border deal emerging in Washington. Then it was back to the rally’s remaining 40 minutes. It was strangely mesmerizing. Let me say this: Any Democrats with a stake

His name is Kaiser, and his story is unique in the annals of military homing pigeon history. He would become one of the longest-held prisoners of war in American history and one of the longest-living pigeons ever bred in captivity. But how did a German war bird come to "live" at the National Museum of American History? Kaiser´s story begins in Koblenz, Germany, in the first week of February 1917.

Democrats need an identity-politics intervention.

Every national Democrat of note is demanding that Virginia Governor Ralph Northam resign for appearing in blackface in 1984 and for offering different explanations for an offensive photo on his medical college yearbook page. But Mr. Northam is refusing to go. A second woman has now accused Virginia Lt. Governor Justin Fairfax of rape, this time at Duke University in 2000.

Sen. Kamala D. Harris (D-Calif.) is running to become the first black female president. But in the early days of the campaign, she’s had to answer questions about the “legitimacy” of her “blackness.” Online, stories have circulated suggesting that Harris is not African American because her parents are immigrants and she spent some of her childhood in Canada. During an appearance on “The Breakfast Club” radio show Monday, hosts DJ Envy and Charlamagne Tha God asked Harris about that. Harris pushed back. “I’m black, and I’m proud of being black. I was born black. I will die black,”

The GOP Majority Leader in the Senate persuaded President Donald Trump to not veto the GOP’s flawed border security bill by promising to back a national emergency construction of border walls, according to insider leaks to the establishment media. The Washington Post reported that “Trump had been leaning against supporting the congressional spending bill but relented after several conversations with [Majority Leader Sen. Mitch] McConnell, who then announced his agreement to go along with an emergency declaration.” One reason for Trump’s last-minute opposition is that congressional leaders conducted the negotiations without significant White House involvement.

The two hottest commodities in the Democratic Party are Ilhan Omar and Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. Earlier this week, Omar exhibited stunning ignorance in her hostile questioning of Elliott Adams Abrams. Similarly, Ocasio-Cortez has often displayed a surprising lack of knowledge for someone who apparently is a college graduate. Don’t get me started on the “Green New Socialism.” But she outdid herself yesterday. The context was Amazon’s announcement that it would not, after all, build a second corporate headquarters in Long Island City, which I understand is close to, but not within, Ocasio-Cortez’s district. The project reportedly would have entailed

WASHINGTON— What is happening to the Democrats? Captivated by a handful of liberal superstars, they are venturing where the party has long feared to tread: Steep taxes on the rich. Abolishing an immigration enforcement agency. Proposing "economic transformation" to combat climate change. Gleefully waving goodbye to a big business — and its jobs. On Thursday, newly-elected Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez led a chorus of cheers as Amazon announced it was abandoning plans to build a sought-after headquarters in New York City.
