Happy Mother’s Day!
Sunday, May 9th, is a day to celebrate and honor the mother of the family, motherhood itself, and all maternal bonds. The modern Mother’s Day started in the United States as an initiative by Anna Jarvis and was first celebrated in 1907. Her efforts to start a yearly Mother’s Day celebration started in 1905 after her own mother had passed. Anna wanted to set aside a day to honor all mothers because she believed that a mother’s selflessness does more for others than anyone else in the world.
By 1911, all U.S. states observed the holiday after Congress rejected a proposal to declare it a national holiday. This day is the time to make Mothers feel special, loved, and appreciated. Almost all children love making homemade gifts for mothers, and mothers generally really appreciate the love and time and trouble it takes to make them. Mothers also enjoy flowers, chocolate, spa treatments, or anything that transmit the kind of love almost every mother in the world deserves.
What happened to the Wisconsin Governor and why?
That Wisconsin exists today as one of the most gerrymandered states in the union is without question. The republicans divided up the historically democratic state and took over, gaining overwhelming control of the House, the Senate, and the state Supreme Court. Using these three bodies, they took most of the governor’s power (and the Attorney General’s) away. They then began controlling the budget to the point where fully 300 of the items the governor submitted for budgeting consideration and voting are being denied.
Those moves by these mostly rural legislators are part of the democratic process across America, but the two-faced conclusions these men and women are publishing are something else again. The message being delivered to the media is “the words governor ever” kind of thing, founded upon a presentation that portrays the governor as the worst ‘do nothing’ governor in the state’s history. How can they take all the governor’s power and then accuse him of being powerless? They can do it in the dark and on the sly, just as they pulled off the gerrymandering scam, that when from being a crooked trick to becoming the reality of life for everyone in the state. How does the main body of democratic citizenry in Wisconsin get rid of these people and this situation?
Overwhelming response at the polls is how. The coming elections in 2022 must be over-attended and the vote so substantial that the gerrymandering will be overcome and these prancing and posing characters removed and sent back to the wilderness from which they sprung.
