The GOP

I got a letter from my repub rep and he said they had 40 hearings

on the tax bill..........anyone know what hearings they had??

Got an e-mail from my republican rep

Dear Friend,

I’d like to share with you the words of President Ronald Reagan on Christmas and the unique blessings we share as Americans:

“In spite of everything, we Americans are still uniquely blessed, not only with the rich bounty of our land but by a bounty of the spirit—a kind of year-round Christmas spirit that still makes our country a beacon of hope in a troubled world and that makes this Christmas and every Christmas even more special for all of us who number among our gifts the birthright of being an American.”

I am so blessed to be sharing this special time of year with Jacquie and our beautiful seven children. It is our hope that your Christmas is filled with peace, goodwill, and above all, love.

From my family to yours, Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year!

Sincerely,

I noticed he had to go back to Raygun to find a decent season blessing

I got an e-mail from Sen. Al Franken late this afternoon

December 21, 2017

Dear Richard,

Thank you for contacting my office. I appreciate hearing from you.

I have announced that I will resign from the Senate. This was a hard decision. But I am confident that Lieutenant Governor Tina Smith will make an excellent United States Senator. She is a dedicated public servant who's worked tirelessly on behalf of Minnesotans and she will continue to bring that spirit to Washington.

It's been the honor of my life serving the people of Minnesota in the Senate for the last 8 years. Minnesota continues to be one of the most civically engaged states in the nation. And I'm so proud that - by listening and learning from your ideas and experiences - I've been able to continue the tradition of finding commonsense solutions to problems that affect our state.

For many of us, the 2016 election represented a very real threat to not just the advances we made during the Obama Administration, but also to our neighbors, friends, and family members who are at risk of being harmed by the dangerous policies of this administration. In the face of this, I am proud to see how many Minnesotans have joined me in defending the progress we've made.

As we look ahead toward the next fight, it's important that we remember how far we've come. When I joined the Senate in 2009, people who are gay or lesbian were outlawed from serving openly in the military, same sex marriage was illegal in all but a handful of states, people could actually be denied health coverage because of an illness, and families were much more vulnerable to lenders who could issue mortgage loans without taking any meaningful steps to see if a consumer could repay them. We have made real progress that we should be proud of.

Senator Paul Wellstone - whose seat I have been so honored to hold-used to say that politics isn't about winning or losing - it's about improving people's lives. And over the last 8 years, that's what we've done. We've stood up for what we know is right, worked hard to find common ground, and made people's lives better.

Today, people are more engaged in the political process than I have ever experienced in my career. From the Women's Marches across the country to defeating efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act, people are raising their voices. The passion I've seen this year makes me confident that - despite the significant challenges we face - progress is still possible.

Thank you for contacting me. I look forward to working with you - as a citizen and activist - to make life better for Minnesotans and people across this country.

Sincerely,

Signature

Al Franken
United States Senator

The Winter Solstice is tomorrow........12-21-2017 at 10:28 cst

The days leading up to it have been the darkest in this country's history
Tomorrow starts with more light, time to put the darkness at bay
Time to shine more light on the cockroaches and make them scurry
Time to squash them and make them feel the pain as the birds tear at their flesh
It is time to shine the light and make them pay for their work in darkness

Starting the slide to THE BOWELS OF HELL

Science Fiction and the Republican Party

Are science fiction writers Prophets?? Do some of them have a portal into the future?? Perhaps!!
Over the years I have read many science fiction books about the takeover of the world by corporations and robots.
The authors and titles escape me. Most of them state that robots are better suited for work because they do not demand wages, no benefits and can be shut down when not needed. Corporations are better because they can see the big picture and are not concerned with petty little people concerns.
This new tax bill makes this perfectly clear, the aim of the republicans is to make the masses obsolete. More money to corporations will allow them to replace workers with robots. As stated in another DU post.
At some point in the future corporations will control the world as we know it with the help of robots

I called repub Tom Emmer's DC office

The people who answer the phone are not allowed to tell the caller where Emmer stands on issues.
During the course of the call I asked to speak to someone with power to answer my questions. Told everyone was busy.
I asked how many people were in the office at this time.

I was told I could not have that information because it fell under NATIONAL SECURITY

Republicans will do and say anything to not answer your questions
