America the Beautiful is Not a Movie

Written by  Marcello Rollando

What I know about sports, I learned watching movies, but what I know about fair play and equality, I learned watching my parents.  Although movies Based on a true story, have evolved closer to reality since William Bendix played Babe Ruth, the brain damage of inequality requires more than A Hail Mary Pass at equal economic opportunity and Justice for All to tackle an Equal Rights Amendment fumbled by a deadline for ratification.

What I know about a New Jersey Legislature or a Virginia General Assembly is, you’re either for the people stuck on the bridge or against those seeking Constitutional equality, and only those gridlocked in our historical inequality, fear the dignity discovered in debate between equals.

What I know about The Virginia General Assembly and the Equal Rights Amendment is, non-attorney Delegate Mark L. Cole, claims the Va GA cannot legally consider the Equal Rights Amendment, after the Virginia Senate passed it with the support of several attorneys including Senators Henry Marsh and Creigh Deeds.

What I know about Tuesday February 11, 2014 is, it’s the day for men to get in touch with their equal feminine side.  Crossover Day is the last day for each house of the Virginia Legislature to act on its own legislation, excluding revenue bills and Budget Bills.  So it’s the perfect day to call (804) 698-1088 or email Delegate Mark L. Cole This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it "> This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it and tell him to lead Virginia by an example for what you want America to be:  the greatest generation who fought WWII to save and value the culture of all people, or the America granting only white people the privilege of singing America the Beautiful in soft drink commercials.

What I know about theatre and politics is, while they often co-mingle, auditions offer equal opportunity for a role, while politics still tips the land of opportunity in favor of men making more money than women for doing the same job.

What I know is, The Equal Rights Amendment is an economic equality debt we failed to pay our grandmothers and their grandmothers, that is now due to our mothers, wives and daughters.

What I know about those who’ve claimed to be a superior race is, sooner or later history grinds them down into humility, even sometimes producing an all-inclusive pearl of acceptance in their place.

ERAButtonWhat I know about The Hill and Amendments is, the failure of a McConnell and Boehner 113th Congress to pass SJ Res15 and HJ Res 43 to remove the deadline for ERA ratification, so smells of a plague on both your Houses, that in 2014 voters just might elect a new Congress that will work together for the equality of all Americans, because…

…What I know about The Golden Rule and America is, until income reflects equality of opportunity regardless of gender, race, age, party affiliation or sexual persuasion, we haven’t earned the gold medal for brother/sister equality, nor are we American in our skin.

What we should all know about West Virginia water and Corporatism is, the air we breathe, and all our drinking & washing water are connected to all the air and water on earth — and it is your pregnant wife, children and grandmothers who are first sacrificed on the altar of coal, oil, CEO bonuses, corporate greed and government corruption.

What I know about you and the women in your life is, whether by corporations, EPA, NSA; in Military, University, Peace Corp; or with an inequitable salary check, men raping women isn’t about sex.  It’s about power, control and intimidation and informed women who now know how much they matter, are not going to take it anymore.

    Learned about Taj (letter to the editor)

    I was anxious to attend the League of Women Voters Candidate Night because like so many other people in the new 11th District, I knew little about either of the major party candidates. I sat with more than 100 other voters and waited for Kerry Bentivolio to arrive.

    Blue America Preview: Dr. Syed Taj

    With the open seat, Dr. Taj has a more than favorable chance to win. His opponent is Kerry Bentivolio, reindeer rancher, failed business owner and part-time actor who has never held elected office. He has strong ties to libertarian financiers and Tea Party activists but has been ostracized by the Republican Party establishment, having taken large donations from Liberty for All Super PAC, affiliated with Ron Paul.

    Syed Taj: Democrat hopes voters will put a doctor in the House

    He may be a Democrat in a largely Republican town, but don't tell that to Canton voters.

    Dr. Syed Taj finished fourth out of six candidates in 2008 to win a seat on Canton's Board of Trustees -- the first Democrat elected to the board in recent memory and the only Democrat on the seven-member board.

    Interview with Mark Maynard

    We also talk economics and tax policy. We can’t just continue to cut our way to prosperity, Taj says. We continue to fire public employees, he says, and that not only impacts quality of life, but it negatively impacts consumer spending.

    Syed Taj Says He's "on the radar"

    The sudden resignation of Rep. Thad McCotter led to a tumultuous Republican primary in Michigan's 11th District, but the fallout may also mean a competitive general election for a seat thought until recently to be safely in the GOP column. At least, that's what Syed Taj is counting on.
