To The Barracades

..

I am re-blogging Frank’s post for others who do not follow him to read.

Frank, I have the greatest respect for you and the decisions you and your wife made all those years ago. I would hold the same respect if your decision had been different. Bless you and your family.

Equal pay, ability to have a credit card or get a loan without a spouse’s permission, the right to birth control, sexual harassment, the right to vote, the right to serve in combat, the right to serve on a jury, the right to continue working while pregnant, housing discrimination, FMLA, violence against women act, and on and on and on. Other than the right to vote, all of these changes were in my lifetime.

I will be at the polls the day they open no matter what it takes. Thank you, Frank for such a well written and heartfelt post.

Back in 2019 the Alabama Senate…
