The Hatch Act requires that one do no campaigning while on official duties and/or property.
Maybe a Sham?
Personally, I feel it was pretty inconsiderate to the League of Women’s voters who went all out encouraging participation from the public.
They basically did their public meeting behind closed doors.
still seems crazy they tackled infrastructure before voting rights...
I feel that it should be changed to county lines and the number of Reps dependent on the population. And using proportional representation.
Bottom line they are trying to cheat to win by any means they can
Most conservative among very conservative courts over the last 40+years
They are not "conservative", they are radical right
Dwight is right!!! (That has a certain ring to it, doesn't it?)
ABSOLUTELY, ETHICS, INTELLIGENCE, HISTORY AND PYSCH TEST BEFORE CONGRESS AND SUPREME COURT
Damn there needs to be a thumbs down reaction option~!
I've had to stop using the angry emoji on FB and stick to capital letters!
Former Peace Corps Volunteers are politically active too..

Unions tend to move some voters' opinions, and unions have been in serious decline
many churches have moved to the gospel of prosperity, rather than causes of people an ethics. Trends the break us up.
They people in the know about their professions are being challenged by people who know nothing about there subject despite presenting correct info
That gospel of prosperity is horrifying to me!!!!
Wanted to hear more about redistricting. We get a lot of news and don’t care to be lectured at for an hour. Sorry
Cindy Black, Fix Democracy First
@Anne - We will be discussing redistricting at length next week.
Gotta run to another meeting. I’ll try and make it next week!
Maybe it was a protest.
I am wondering about the craziness about masking and vaccination denials and then city and business are getting rid of them. In our state the number is going up with winer coming and people being indoors what is going to happen. Nobody is listening. Healthcare people are being threatened too besides school system. Our state ( Ohio is going down the tubes with the Rep. legislators. Just did away with necessity of canceled weapon license. Want to do what Texas is doing with abortions. People to rat on others for money.
The right of a student to refrain from participating during the Pledge is part of Washington’s law governing school districts. RCW 28A.230.140 says that school boards “shall cause appropriate flag exercises to be held.” It also explains that an “appropriate” flag exercise is one where student participation is voluntary:Those pupils so desiring shall recite the following salute to the flag: “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all.” Students not reciting the pledge shall maintain a respectful silence.
Trump has made the Am Flag a hate symbol.
same here isn Ohio Walt- “WE THE PEOPLE” They talk about their rights but they want to deny others rights
we need to bring back “Civics and Social problems” in schools
Max: Thank you for sharing that.
Civics could easily be a semester course in a high school to prepare kids for citizenship. I had a course in modern problems which functioned in part as a civics course.
Thank you for sharing that Max, you’re absolutely correct
yes thank you, Max
I had that class in High School back in 1970’s
I describe it from the late 60’s.
That’s like saying it is OK
A lot of those churches should lose their tax exempt status
I think this video eloquently puts across that very same sentiment in a truly cogent way most can relate to.
Yes! Absolutely 100% Pia.
They need to have a classes on the Constitution and the Bill of Rights and the Declaration of Independence and what they all mean
Just because the wave the flag doesn’t mean they get it!
That is because they refuse facts and rely on misinformation and believe disinformation
Our educational system needs a complete overhaul or restructuring at minimum. Our math system alone is far behind many developed countries
They act like America only belongs to them. The elected officials are to represent everyone but they don’t. They try to get their followers to look at the most extreme right with fake info
Healthcare has been weaponized-
Amber so does healthcare- Total mess and broken
Yeah unfortunately we are at then point where every system is failing. Education, health care, political systems, infrastructure. All of it needs to be torn down and rebuilt at this point
The united states of oligarchy
Your right Dwight!
The population don’t want to think for themselves. They need problem solving and critical thinking skills
This is why School Board elections are so important
See my LTE in the Spokesman Review;https://www.spokesman.com/stories/2021/nov/07/teach-by-example/
The Infrastructure building is critical- We are getting further and further behind and not progressing like we should be a dears in the world. If everything is falling down we cannot survive. Power and greed in the hands of a few is disgusting and will be our downfall. Hey most of the people are experiencing climate change destruction just ignore it
The press in in the constitution, schools were not
Let the guns nuts then carry those weapons that they used in 1776
people need to learn to discuss and compromise so that each gets a little of what they want
The problem is that some of those people deny the facts. That is what is hard to deal with
Unfortunately since almost l forms of our media have been bought and sold, so now we have no idea what sources are legitimate
if you aren’t educated then you cannot understand the problem
Need Universal healthcare- No healthcare should rely on you having a job. Covid exposed that.
Ohio Redistricting went to hell
This was amazing! Thank you all!
