Play the Woman Card. Play the Planet Card. Make the Wind Blow. #VoteOurPlanet Today

November 8, 2016


Today is the day that United States citizens vote for a new president.

It has been a long battle, but today is the day that we make the wind blow one direction or another.


Every election is important but for people who care about our planet, this one is critical.

Roland Tiffany Member of the International Society of Typographic Designers (ISTD) Graphic Design Graduate created the evocative graphic below:


One Presidential candidate thinks climate change is a hoax, while the other sees addressing it as a way to create more jobs.

The GOP candidate plans to reduce taxes on the 1% making it harder to address the needs of the country: our parks, our people. The other candidate wants to raises taxes moderately on the rich and cut taxes for the middle and lower classes to create a budget that will be able to fund the projects that our parks and our country needs providing jobs along the way.

Ben Gibbered writes that “Lyrically, ‘Million Dollar Loan’ deals with a particularly tone deaf moment in Donald Trump’s ascent to the Republican nomination. While campaigning in New Hampshire last year, he attempted to cast himself as a self-made man by claiming he built his fortune with just a ‘small loan of a million dollars’ from his father. Not only has this statement been proven to be wildly untrue, he was so flippant about it. It truly disgusted me. Donald Trump has repeatedly demonstrated that he is unworthy of the honor and responsibility of being President of the United States of America, and in no way, shape or form represents what this country truly stands for. He is beneath us.” Listen to all 50 songs for a Trump-Free America here

In contrast, former Secretary of State Clinton comes from humble roots and knows what it is like to make your own way in the world.


There are many distinctions between the two candidates, many related to the future of the planet, but the final one for me is that one candidate is a misogynist who brags about groping and seducing women, and the other candidate IS a woman. Today this pussy grabs back — in part because the 20 year old me didn’t know how to. And neither did the younger me when harassed and teased.


In Ventura County, we make an important decision about development and agriculture as we vote whether to extend SOAR which has saved our agriculture over the past 20 years by saying yes on C or allow developers to loophole their way into paving over our agricultural heritage.

This election season has been quite a duel — from the presidential candidates to the battle between Measure C (for correct) and Measure F (for Fail).


That’s why this evening, you might choose to commemorate the most historic duel in American history, the one between Alexander Hamilton and Aaron Burr, with a  glass of “Dueling Pistols” wine from The Federalist. This is a duel between Syrah and Zinfandel, but both are winners, and so will you be if you choose this wine.

Read more on Wine Predator about why you might choose a wine from The Federalist on this Federal Election Day here or when you may be hosting another duel–maybe a sporting event or family gathering?


So go ahead, make the wind blow: play the woman card today, vote the planet card today, get out and vote today.  #VoteOurPlanet.
