Subject: Impeach Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis
We must protect our state from an elected official violating the laws of our country.
That’s why I signed a petition to The Kentucky State House, The Kentucky State Senate, and Governor Steve Beshear, which says:
“Rowan County Clerk Kim Davis has defied the Supreme Court ruling and a direct federal judge order to fulfill her religious believes and to discriminate against our gay community. By doing this she is not upholding her duties of her office. If her religious believes will not allow her to uphold the duties of the office she holds then we must remove her from office.”

I’m sick and tired of reading about Clerk Kim Davis in Kentucky, whining about her religious rights, and her religious liberties as she blithely tramples on the civil rights of others. My solution: IMPEACH THE BITCH!
“Were it not for the fact that Davis is an elected official she would be fired. The only way to remove her from office for her civil crimes is to impeach her. Please sign this petition to demand that impeachment proceedings be started against Clerk Kim Davis. The Job She is refusing to do has nothing to do with religion or her religious beliefs. We can not permit her to use her bigotry to refuse to do her job by hiding behind Christianity. She must be impeached and replaced by someone mentally more capable of properly performing the job she has continually refused to perform..”
Twenty years later, much had improved. Children no longer worked in mines, but whenever there was need, which was all the time, many of us found a way to earn money.
In July of 1956, while other girls spent their days at the town beach, I worked my first full-time job in a sweatshop; it was not a fun job. I was just 15. In those days children under 16 were no longer allowed to work in factories, but because I am tall, I lied about my age and easily passed for 16. No one ever asked to see a birth certificate or a “picture ID.” Nevertheless, whenever the authorities came to inspect the shop, the owner had me hide.
My duties at the shop were simple. At first I merely trimmed finished garments, preparing them for shipping. Soon after, the operators taught me to run the button and buttonholer machines, and I started earning “real” money. Thankfully, high school graduation marked the end of my career at the sweatshop. I had an opportunity to attend a four-year-college — the first in my family to live that dream. I walked away from the factory, but not without a backward look.
Admittedly, I carried away a few fond memories of the place, along with some not-so-fond memories. Still, working there I had been able to earn much needed money for commuting expenses, to buy text books and pay student fees for my first year at the City College of New York.
Because I was a good student, I had learned a lot of things at the sweatshop — things that had nothing to do with stitching on buttons or working perfect buttonholes, or even the complexities of marketing children’s garments — things that before taking the job I didn’t know I would need to learn. Yet, without a doubt the most important lesson I had mastered after working three long summers at the factory was that I would never return. Never. No matter what other people said about being able to earn good money or being prideful. I would never go back.
The Ugly Truth

“This isn’t about the emails anymore. It never was. It’s about making a woman bow down before the powers that be, something Hillary has never done. After all, Donald Trump has spent the summer demeaning women, embracing xenophobia, and smearing a POW, but we don’t see the media and elite commentariat clamoring for an apology.”
