A jump off the bed and she pads downstairs. Scratch, scratch, scratch. The sound of litter. Ah, a space. Crouching over the box, Scaredy cat does her business. She climbs out, turns and smells the long, brown log. Yes, it’s good. That means .”POO RUN”.
Nails scratching on the wood floor, she takes off to the basement. Thump, thump, thump. Downstairs. Around the carpeted floors. Reverse.
Thump, thump, thump. Up the basement stairs. Nails skidding on the wooden floor, she skids to a stop and dashes upstairs to the bedroom. Thud, thud, thud, thud.
Door! Crash! The door bangs open and she skids to a stop on the carpet. “Meow, meow, meow.” Then, she dashes back down the stairs. Thud, thud, thud, thud, thud.
An exasperated sigh. “Dammit. Do you have to do that all the time? Can’t you just cover that shit up.”
Pennsylvania Court Kicks Greens Off Ballot — The Democrat Party minions on the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, Sept. 16, kicked Green Party presidential candidate Howie Hawkins off the Nov. 3 ballot citing a paperwork error.
Repeat: The judges decided that a paperwork error was enough to throw a guy off the ballot; a guy whose supporters spent hours acquiring the appropriate amount of signatures.
The vote, which overturned a lower court ruling, was 5-2 with only the Republicans dissenting. Not saying the GOP motivations were noble but they were in the right if you believe in honest interpretation of the law, representative government and citizen leaders.
It is beyond apparent that our courts are entirely about politics and the judges don’t give a fig about justice or the rule of law.
Anyway, Bob Small, a Green Party activist from Swarthmore, wrote a poem about the matter which we are publishing.
It should strike a little fear into any Democrat with brains. You know, Donald Trump is probably more of a Green than Joe Biden, at least when it comes to military intervention and trade. Even foreign labor. The USMCA did give Mexican autoworkers a nice raise, you know.
Explain to me again why I should vote for the Party that knocked my Party off the Presidential Ballot
Explain to me why I should vote against 45 and for – even though I can only vote for HH by a write in
Explain to me how this election is any different is any different from any election since at least 1968 in terms of choice in terms of choice
Explain to me how I should hold my nose and vote for a guy named joe and maybe next election- I don’t believe there’s any explanation this time just like there wasn’t any last time any of the last times from casey to biden and before
Every other country even included one named Russia has alternative Parties on the ballot except- Explain that to me.
And here is the official Green Party press release:
HARRISBURG, PA – In the greatest act of voter suppression since Jim Crow legislation, the Democratic Party has disenfranchised 9 million voters in the Commonwealth by using an amendable paperwork error to remove Howie Hawkins from the Pennsylvania General Election ballot in November.
State election officials informed Green Party officers that due to the Covid-19 pandemic, submission of affidavits by fax copy to the Bureau of Elections, which offices were closed due to the pandemic, would be acceptable.
The Democrats failed at two other attempts to defeat democracy in the Keystone State, including a red herring challenge to the 8,500 signatures collected by the GPPA during the pandemic. The Democrats falsely claimed the signatures were illegible but dropped the challenge when a simple check of the registered voters’ database demonstrated their deceit.
Not satisfied, the Democrats doubled down their attack by appealing a lower court decision allowing the Green Party candidates to appear on the ballot, to the PA Supreme Court which as a 5 – 2 majority of Democratic Party Judges.
The Democrats claimed that the fax copy violated procedure and thereby made the Green Party candidate ineligible. In the dissenting opinion, it was made clear that this was an amendable situation and should not bar the Green Party from the November election. The five Democratic Party judges disagreed.
There are two ways to defeat democracy, one way is by preventing citizens from voting, and the other is by preventing worthy candidates from appearing on the ballot. When the law can be used as a subterranean tool in a process which can only be labeled “political profiling” the meaning and the intent of the law is subverted as is the democracy from which those laws were supposed to have sprung.
Famed poet William Topaz McGonagall of 19th century Scotland once put a testimonial to Beecham’s Pills in verse. Here it is:
What ho! sickly people of high and low degree I pray ye all be warned by me; No matter what may be your bodily ills The safest and quickest cure is Beecham’s Pills.
They are admitted to be worth a guinea a box For bilious and nervous disorders, also smallpox, And dizziness and drowsiness, also cold chills, And for such diseases nothing else can equal Beecham’s Pills
They have been proved by thousands that have tried them So that the people cannot them condemn. Be advised by me one and all Is the advice of Poet McGonagall.
Beecham’s Pills were a laxative made of aloe, ginger, and soap.
