Trumps second unconstitutional Muslim ban has been overturned. Trump isn’t happy, but maybe this will teach him something about how the law works. It should also teach him to keep is stupid orange mouth shut, as its what got him in the most trouble. The judge in the case was simply, taking what he said as being what he meant. Something we should all do from now on, take him at his word, and then hold him to it.
Trumpcare is in big trouble. I think if we play our cards right… and stay with me now because this is going to sound crazy, but I think we could end up with universal health care if we do this right. I say the progressive left counter punch with Medicare for all universal healthcare. We vote so many of them out of office that we can do universal health care. Remember the EPA, clean air act, title 9, clean water act, were all passed under Nixon. Mostly because the left was so strong. We Can Do This.
Trump is going to cut meals on wheels to pay for the Mexican border wall. Remember every bullet we buy, every tank, every stupid border wall takes money away from much more important programs.
The most anti-gay republicans are almost always gay themselves. Sad really. If they would just come out of the closet they could just be happy and live a normal gay life.
Trump’s approval ratings fall even farther. He really is a monumental fuck up.
Trump laughs as the world burns…sigh. We must stop him.
Trump probably leaked his own tax returns for 2005, because it might have been the only year he actually almost looked like he wasn’t a criminal.

According to a Fox News Poll, Bernie Sanders, Planned Parenthood, and Obamacare are the three most popular things in America. This says to me that its time for Corporate democrats to get out of the way, and let Bernie and Elizabeth Warren run full steam ahead with a progressive agenda. America wants it, and they need it.
Bernie is busy building a 50 state coalition to fight for progressive values.
The American Trump might be such a huge embarrassment that he got the Dutch to vote against the Dutch Trump.
Big shocker, but states that raised their minimum wage, saw most low income wage earners pay go up….you mean paying people more makes their wages go up?!? Duh.
San Francisco might be the next major city to divest from oil pipe lines. Can you hear that? Its the sound of the carbon bubble popping. Pull your money out of oil investments now, before you lose the farm when it all collapses.
You can’t fight something with nothing. We should be countering the right wing populism with left wing economics! Medicare for all, free college tuition, 15 dollar minimum wage, pay equity for women!
Rep. Joe Barton (R-TX) told a man to shut up after he disagreed with the congressman’s vote against the Violence Against Women Act.
At a rowdy town hall in Frost, Texas last week, one constituent asked Barton to work with Rep. Jackie Speier (D-CA) to sponsor legislation combating violence against women,” The Dallas Morning News reported.
“Given your voting record opposing legislation protecting women from violence, will you make a commitment to us today, make a promise that you will reach out to Congresswoman Jackie Speier and work with her to see this bill successfully through Congress?” the man said.
Barton explained that he voted against the bill because he believes violence against women is a “state issue, not a federal issue.”
The answer earned the congressman boos from the audience.
“Violence against women, that’s a national issue!” one member of the audience shouted. “That’s an issue that impacts everyone everywhere, not only in this country, but everywhere!”
“You, sir, shut up,” Barton snapped, pointing his finger at that man.
The command, however, had the opposite effect on the audience.
“You don’t tell anybody to shut up!” the constituent shouted back. “You work for us!”
There is just something so refreshing watching a bunch of constituents take a representative to task for not representing them. GO to your reps next town hall and make sure they are representing you!

Calling your government representative:
You can also use 5Calls.org if you are having a hard time figuring out what to say.
Tell them in no uncertain terms that you want them to fight to stop Trump from doing these things. Tell them you will be watching them closely on how they vote, and will hold them accountable during the next election if they cave to Trump. You can also call other states congress people and threaten to donate to their opponent if they don’t do what you want.
