Did you know that I am a famous Lilandra?

My username Lilandra Ra is listed on Names.org as a famous Lilandra. I suspect it is mentioned there because it is just basically me and my name inspiration alien Lilandra Neramani, Empress of the Marvel Universe’s Shi’ar and a few others you may not have heard of either.  The name is not that popular and, in fact, [Read More…]

Aron Ra State Senate Campaign Donations

I have a certified public accountant registered with the Texas Ethics Commission as my campaign treasurer. Together we opened a separate bank account specifically for my 2018 run for State Senate, District 2, and I have a website linking to a PayPal account where I can finally begin accepting campaign donations. I hate that it [Read More…]

Our Call to Congress to Impeach Trump was Simple

My husband Aron Ra and I had no trouble today calling the House Judiciary Committee about our concerns with Donald Trump. It was our first call that got through to an official.  Despite my phone anxiety, the process was not anything to worry about.  The phone person was polite but I did have to ask if I could [Read More…]

Is there a good reason not to file for Trump’s impeachment?

With the metaphorical Doomsday Clock clicking just 2;30 minutes to nuclear destruction, is there a good reason out there not to start the impeachment proceedings against Trump? Let’s examine a couple of the reasons the House of Representatives maybe hasn’t started the bureaucratic wheels of impeachment ever so slowly grinding on this issue as the clock ticks away.

Politically opinionated

I don’t like to share my political opinions because so many of them require explanation and some also require a prior understanding. Those with neither think I don’t have either. It also requires a willingness to understand, which a lot of my critics simply do not have. Sadly too many people, both on the left [Read More…]

Unlawful Arrest of Shia LaBeouf for responding to “Fighting Words” from a Neo-Nazi

Shia  LaBeouf was arrested today and charged with assault and harassment over a scuffle that involved shoving and grabbing the scarf of a Neo-Nazi. The Neo-Nazi  proclaimed on LeBeouf’s performance art livestream that,”Hitler did nothing wrong.” The incident is one of a few high-profile cases where Neo-Nazis are pushing the boundaries of free speech. What often happens is critics will [Read More…]

The answer to what damage Trump can cause in just 4 days

Something to think about for everyone that argued a version of: 1. “Trump can’t do what he says.”(The Constitution, Checks and Balances, Congress Hates Him) 2. “Trump won’t do what he says.” (So you [Read More…]

Just give him a chance…

My last blog post irritated some right-wingers. It seems that if I don’t want to ruin everything for everyone, then I’m an extreme leftist. So if I don’t want to ruin anything for anyone, then how much more extreme left is that? “Give Trump a chance”, they say. Give him a chance to set everyone’s [Read More…]

And so it begins.

Donald Trump enters his new office with the lowest initial approval rating of any president in living memory. Yet despite these already impressive figures, I predict that his numbers will actually go even further down—before it’s all over. That, I think, is an appropriate way to end that sentence. Trump promises—albeit unwittingly—to undermine the Constitution [Read More…]

Silver Bullet 2020: Joe Biden/Elizabeth Warren

After one of the most demoralizing election seasons in recent memory, when it seemed as though there were new depths to be plumbed every week, Americans have good reason to be sick of hearing about politics. Realistically, after our elections were likely trolled by the Russians and the Alt-Right which helped to install Donald J. Trump, what [Read More…]
