Just hours after her death, pundits, fundraisers and legislators began weighing in on the political implications of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg’s death. TMM suggests we would all be remiss if we didn’t pause to reflect on her impact, however.
If you knew: (1) which TV classic that line came from, you might be a Boomer – and you might decide this election. Bonus points: (2) Which character spoke that line? (3) Is it accurate? Answers below. Honesty – or lack thereof – has received attention recently, so let’s compare histories of President Trump and former VP Biden, using our Moderate Leadership Test (MLT).
Moderates, what does that word, R-E-S-P-E-C-T, mean to YOU? In the song, it means “give me my propers”. Let’s decide which candidate gives “propers” to EVERYBODY, including veterans, POWs, military leaders, women, opponents, and reporters – then VOTE.
Moderates, don’t be deceived by the deluge of disinformation during this campaign. Remain vigilant and determined to fact-check claims that seem too good (or bad) to be true – using objective, unbiased sources, like the ones recommended in this post. Then, above all, VOTE.
TMM believes America needs TWO truthful, believable parties to balance each other and compete in the political marketplace. Unfortunately, while the once-proud GOP remains the newly-rebranded COT (Cult of Trump), that’s not the case. Moderates, consider that – and VOTE.
You may have heard people say, “this is one of the most consequential elections in recent history.” TMM certainly believes that’s true. President Trump won some states in the 2016 election by very slim margins. So YOUR VOTE MATTERS! In addition to voting, PLEASE share these important resources with your friends and family.
TMM hates to pee in the punchbowl during this week’s Democratic love-fest – but somebody needs to. Alert: This post contains many colloquialisms. Look that up in your Funk and Wagnalls. If you remember that line from a classic TV show*, you might be a Baby Boomer – and you might decide this election.
TMM urges readers: do whatever you must do to stay sane, vigilant, determined – and hopeful. It’s going to be a wild ride this Fall; but no matter how wild, ugly, and discouraging it gets, we must resolve to do our part for our beloved country. Donate, volunteer – and VOTE.
Clowns to the left of me, jokers to the right. Here I am, stuck in the middle with you. If you remember that 1973 song by Stealers Wheel, and identify with its chorus, you might be a Moderate Baby Boomer – and you might decide this election.
Moderates, post your scores in our Comments section and use those scores to help determine your vote. Then sock it to ‘em – VOTE.
