Powerful and independent are the adjectives de jour these days. They precede the noun woman as though this were some new phenomenon - some new government given right of millennial women. Au contraire!
I find it genuinely shocking that the President of the United States merely stood by and watched the Congress play a week long legislative game of “whackamoo”. This is the end of government of the people, by the people and FOR the people. Instead we have a perpetual campaign were the power of the political party is the basis of legitimacy – rather than power derived from the governed.
