Nevertheless, She Persisted

Occasionally, people ask me what the tattoo on the inside of my arm means. It says “Fluctuat nec mergitur.” It happens to be the motto of the city of Paris and it means loosely in Latin, “She [A Ship] is tossed by the waves, but does not sink,” alluding to an unwavering persistance.

Senator Mitch McConnell’s abhorrent behavior yesterday and attempts to silence Senator Elizabeth Warren because it was something he did not want to hear is simply a summary of the feminist fight. He said, and I quote, “She was warned. She was given an explanation. Nevertheless, she persisted.”

Damn right, you silly fool. Damn right she persisted. How’s that for a slogan? Nevertheless, she persisted.
