2016 election

I, Virginia Bergman, pledge not to vote for a male presidential candidate in 2016 just because he's male.

One dollar and one cent for every hour Sen. Davis filibustered


At Heidi Li’s Potpourri, Heidi Li is pointing out that both money and filibustering talk, and she’s urging each of us to follow her example and invest $11.11 in Sen. Davis’ future. Sounds like a worthwhile investment to me. If you want to donate, go to the Texas state senator’s website here.

Heidi Li explains:

I do not live in Texas.  I have never met State Senator Wendy Davis.  I just invested $11.11 in her political future. That donation is one dollar and one cent for every hour she stood filibustering a law proposed by the Republican, male governor of Texas, a bill that "would have shut down almost all the abortion clinics in the state, under the guise of expanded health and safety requirements"; a bill that also aims to ban abortion after 20 weeks with no exemption for women who are victims of rape or incest.

Davis is getting all sorts of media attention.  Now, we should make sure she gets all sorts of moolah.
