My Birthday Wish. Ratify the #EqualRightsAmendment
It is January 13, 2022. I can't believe I need to post my Birthday Post AGAIN this year in support of the Publication of the Equal Rights Amendment. I would write something new, but as a Health Insurance Agent, I need to do something that will put a Dollar in my pocket rather than trying to keep this Blog alive - I can't keep "Hobby-Blogging for Free" when I need a Paycheck.
With all of the talk of Diversity, this just goes to show how BIG OF A PROBLEM SEXISM is in this country.
WOMEN have been written out of the Constitution from the beginning.
On January 27, 2020, the state of Virginia became the 38th state to Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment into their State Constitution, yet the National Archivist REFUSES TO DO HIS JOB by Certifying this Ratification & publishing the ERA as the 28th Amendment into the Constitution.
My Book, "Yes, I'd Like to Thank the Academy: How to Tame the Red Carpet in YOUR Office" is still available on Amazon for $7.
If you've not yet snagged your copy, you can get it here now.
January 13th, 2021. I've been spending more time taking care of myself, my family & my little Business since the 1st of the year instead of Blogging.
So much has happened in the past almost four years since the 2016 Presidential Election & so many of us were so hopeful - ARE so hopeful - for the end to our National Nightmare.
Then the greatest Constitutional Crisis in the life of our Country happens: a sitting President of the United States orders a Siege of our Capital.
This Morning ACTION will be taken to remove this Man who is UNFIT for Office.
I'm not sure how much I will watch on TV.
I'm not sure how much I will participate on Social Media.
Today is my 60th Birthday.
(BTW - can I skip ahead to 70? I am NOT looking forward to being 60-anything)
I keep thinking that all of this could have been prevented by Electing Hillary Clinton as our First Madam President EVER.
But Sexism is a Problem.
Misogyny is a Problem.
This is the 3rd time I've "recycled" my Birthday Post.
The first time was in 2018. It talks about my thoughts on Racial Equality & what it means to be a White, English-Speaking WOMAN in Houston, TX.
Then again in 2019, honoring the work of the Honorable Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader-Ginsburg.
So while I won't exactly be "taking the day off" I would actually like to enjoy my birthday even if it's just taking a hot bubble bath.
