First Of Month FAV Posts ~ Shareable, Informational And/Or Actionable (Timely action: re Loretta Lynch!):

^^^ The GOP majority Senate is holding up the process re the nomination of the best possible choice to follow Attorney General Eric Holder into the office ~ Loretta Lynch. The GOP majority House is lobbying against her. They need to hear from us now!

Having said that ~ 

Democrats always need to work at messaging Democratic Truths. You do know the GOP is always messaging Democratic Lies, right?! Please feel free to share my favorite posts and/or to take action where appropriate. Take the Best; Leave the Rest. But push back!

 I know it can be annoying to have to take several steps ~ click, save and then post ~ but it will be a lot more annoying if we have a GOP Congress AND a GOP President in 2016. My personal habit is to save each meme on my Desktop; I create a Memes Today folder and drop each Meme into the folder and; when I have a block of about 15 minutes of time ~ I share them all directly from that folder to my favorite social medium platforms. I am of the mind that the more space Democrats take up on cyberspace the less space the GOP will have!

^^^ Just a personal favorite of the week ... Historic! The 1st Family celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Selma March. Please note: President Obama does not fear much and he called on Congress to pass the Voting Rights Amendment 2015 this year because (and I paraphrase here) we have come a long way but we are not there yet!

^^^ Informational: Today (yesterday) marks (marked) the 50th anniversary of the 1st march from Selma, Alabama. We honor Amelia Boynton Robinson, who was a leader of the American Civil Rights Movement in Selma and a key organizer of the March 7, 1965 march. Martin Luther King, Jr. used her home as his headquarters and office in Selma to plan civil rights demonstrations in the 1960s and to craft language for a Voting Rights Act. Robinson marched from Selma to Montgomery on what became known as 1965’s Bloody Sunday. She, like John Lewis, was clubbed and tear-gassed, and a wire photograph of her lying on the Edmund Pettus Bridge spread on the evening news. Six months later, President Lyndon B. Johnson signed the Voting Rights Act into law. Read more about this remarkable lady's lifetime journey dedicated to social justice here ~

^^^ And, now, just for a few shares in honor of Women's History Month. Hillary, of course, acknowledging the importance of women in society.

^^^ Senator "Barb", acknowledging, a bit cryptically, her role in mentoring women Senators as they won their elections and took their places on the Hill.

^^^ Speaks for itself of course IV! My final courtesy of the DNC!

And, last but not least: Happy International Women's Day to all women and to all who love women ~ VOTE Democrat in 2016!

^^^ Purple was a color selected in the early 1900's to represent the Women's Social Policy Union symbolizing justice & dignity sought by Great Britain's Suffragettes...

(P.S., for the very alert ... I miscalculated the date of the 1st Sunday of the month ~ so you have not lost your mind if you think you should have read this last week! I am a believer that all things happen for a reason, though, and I think I was supposed to be off my mark so I could include that fabulous photograph of the 1st family heading out to march over a bridge in Selma 50 years later.)
