This Is Not Normal,This Is Not OK! :Day 60

Trump Watch:

Trumps new budget will make America weak, sick and stupid…so much for those simple hat slogans.  The worst part is that they just can’t keep lying about it.

———————-

He’s done it!  His approval ratings finally fell below 40% to land at 37%…making his approval ratings historically low, but more importantly it means that people who voted for him are starting to regret their vote.  Can we just impeach him already?

———————-

Trump wants to slash NYPD anti-terror funding while the city pays to protect Trump Tower…this mans mind doesn’t work right.

———————-

The White House says after school programs don’t help kids…they are wrong.  But that wont stop them from trying to cut them anyway.

————————-

Chicago army veteran who suffered brain injury after two tours in Afghanistan to be deported…shameful.

 

——————–

Trump could fund homelessness agency for decades if he stopped visiting Trump properties

——————–

Just remember if there is a profit to be made in killing people, they will kill people.  If there is a profit to be made in putting folks in jail, sentences will get harsher, if there is a profit to be made selling oil, then science be damned.   Some things shouldn’t be left to the markets.  Health care, the justice system, and the stability of our climate are three important ones.

If “Ryancare” Is Dead on Arrival, Can We Please Now Try Single Payer?  Republicans say Cutting Taxes for the Rich Will Lower Healthcare Costs and Increase Coverage, but Only Single Payer Has Proved it Can Do Both.   With Obamacare on the Ropes, Progressives Push for Single-Payer System in California

I don’t know if Bernie should have won, but he certainly didn’t get a fair shake at trying.  And I think even the most die hard Clinton supporters are realizing that she ran a very flawed campaign…Bernie Sanders 2020!

How 90% of American Households Lost an Average of $17,000 in Wealth to Plutocrats in 2016  If you need anymore excuses to fight against these bastards!

Here come the progressives!  Virginia dems are listening to us and running candidates who actually believe in helping people. The real test will be once elected if they do these things, and if they pledge not to take corporate money while running.

Compiled from Bernie’s March 17th Townhall.

1.) Ask what is most efficient for you to do and get involved. Be creative. Fight back in every way you can think of. And be creative. Be involved in politics in a way you haven’t before.

2.) Come together and talk about the problems that we face, figure out how we go forward. Fight for a progressive vision. Practice civil discourse, hear each other out and learn from each other.

3.) Put pressure on. Know what the state is doing, know what the government is doing, and say to them “Look, these are our needs”. Articulate your needs, and demand that elected officials listen to what you have to say.

4.) Bust the phone lines in Washington DC. Say: “You can’t do that”. Make them listen to their constituents about:

a.) Bernie’s upcoming Medicare-for-All single payer program legislation.

b.) Trumps proposal: Throwing people off of health care, raising premiums, devastating Medicade, defunding planned parenthood, and giving 275 billion dollars in tax breaks to people who need it the least.

c.) Bernie’s legislation that says your pharmacist or you or a distributor should be able to buy medicine from any country in the world where the prices are lower and where that medicine is safe.

d.) Bernie’s idea that public colleges and universities should be tuition free.

e.) Our major water crisis.

5.) Nationalize what you’re doing. Make friends, lobby or petition national organizations that you are part of. Hook up with good people in other states. Develop an opposition to officials not acting in the public’s interests.

6.) Rally, march, or protest to the point where police have to block off access because the city can’t accommodate any more cars. It’s having its impact. When they look out the window they should see masses.

7.) Vote with your wallet and champion these ideas locally: Make solar available all day with home based batteries. Move to the electrification of our transportation system. Champion a quality rail system. Get your communities involved at becoming more energy efficient.

8.) Show up and take over the Democratic party. Walk in and start electing progressive leadership.

9.) Run for school board, run for the board of selectmen, think about running for state legislature.

10). See how much your drugs would cost in Canada and other countries. It may be well worth your while to check that out and deal with it.

11.) Stand together when Trump starts attacking Muslims or undocumented people, or when he lies. We stand with those people who are being scapegoated and tell the truth in the midst of a lot of lies.
