I’m going to persist on encouraging the vote on Tuesday, November 8, 2016. I have heard the lamest excuses for not voting, i.e. “I don’t want to do jury duty.” Well I say, 1. the likelihood of you being accepted is minimal, and 2. You have all the advantages of the great American experiment we call Democracy, so DO YOUR CIVIC DUTY!
If you are a young woman and do not vote, I can only conclude that you are ignorant of the short history of our right to vote.
My great grandmother was a Karuk Indian from the Klamath River whose mother was born before the California gold rush, 1849. My great grandmother and her sister took a ferry from Eureka to San Francisco to march with the suffragettes for our right to vote! That was 1907 (nationwide not until 1920), only 109 years ago ~ practically a current event. Voting did not come to women easily and it is your duty to exercise it.
This is about YOUR body, YOUR education, YOUR health, YOUR income, YOUR offspring, YOUR FREAKIN’ LIFE. Do you realize how many people worldwide have, do, and continue to die for this right?
And if you can’t do it for yourself, DO IT FOR YOUR BABY! President Donald Trump promises to bring in staff that have nothing good for the health, education, or culture of your not-ultra wealthy child.
SO GO VOTE!! And take baby to the polls dressed in style!
It’s no secret that the best resale baby items are in the upper end neighborhoods.
La Costa Kids is a great upscale resale shop. Their photo of great upscale kids is shamefully white, but it is a great store with very fair prices for the quality. Boutique party dresses, $8.99. Great shoes for boys and girls, every occasion, average $6.99. The leather jacket is size 12 months, by Kenneth Cole for $12.99.
The Saints Thrift Store in Solana Beach has some lovely surprises that only a religious resale shop can offer. Great learning stimulation for baby, but look at my gorgeous Damask linen tablecloth 84″ with eight napkins, 1950’s for $12. Score!!
And, the good ole’ Goodwill never ceases to amaze!
And if you’re still not convinced to vote, here are two superb movies that will make you look again at your American Right To Vote: Oscar winning documentary A Girl in the River: The Price of Forgiveness (40 mins) and Bill Murray’s Rock the Kasbah.
