Killer Mikes Endorsement Of Bernie Sanders Gets Over 2 million Views

How We Defeat Climate Change

Right now I feel like ranting on the subject.

It has become obvious over the years that compromising with the republicans on this topic is completely worthless. You cannot use facts and logic to alter the way they think. The republicans go two ways on this subject (and many others) either they are just pathetically stupid and deny science because they are ignorant. Or they themselves don't believe the crap they are spouting but are doing it because it is what the donors that gave the campaign they ran to get elected millions of dollars says they should say it. The solution I believe is to completely by pass the rethuglicans and act on climate. The science is clear whether they like it or not. We also need serious education in school on the topic. We need to teach people about it at a young age. I think as soon kids are old enough to grasp the subject they should start to learn about it in school. It is time to #ActOnClimate

Sanders Introduces ‘Families First’ Immigration Plan

From BernieSanders.com

BURLINGTON, Vt. – As he returned home to celebrate Thanksgiving with his family, U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders introduced a bold plan to reform our immigration system. Sanders’ plan puts families first, focuses on common sense reforms to build the middle class and embraces our nation’s diversity.

“As we gather with our loved ones to give thanks, we should reflect on the fact that not all families will be so lucky,” Sanders said. “Millions of families are torn apart by our broken immigration policies. We cannot forget about the aspiring Americans who continue to live in the shadows. As the son of an immigrant, I can tell you that their story – my story, your story, our story – is the story of America: the story of hardworking families coming to the United States to create a brighter future for their kids. We have an obligation to enact policies that unite families, not tear them apart.”

If elected, Sanders would:
Dismantle inhumane deportation programs and private detention centers.
Offer humane treatment and asylum to victims of domestic violence and minors fleeing from dangerous circumstances in Latin America.
End policies that discriminate against women and ensure that mothers and wives who come into the United States with their families have the same right to work as their partners.
Pave the way for a swift legislative path to citizenship for 11 million undocumented immigrants.
Close loopholes that allow federal agencies to use racial and ethnic profiling at the border.
Ensure our border remains secure and protects local communities.
Make it easier for immigrants to access the judicial system.
Increase oversight of key Department of Homeland Security agencies to guard against waste, fraud and abuse.

Sanders pledged to make immigration a top priority of his administration, even if Congress refuses to act. He will take executive action to allow all undocumented people who have been in the United States for at least five years to stay in the country without fear of being deported. Under Sanders’ plan, close to 9 million aspiring Americans will be able to apply to stay in the United States.

“As president, I will fight for comprehensive immigration reform that provides a pathway to citizenship and is grounded in civil, humane and economic rights. But let me be clear: I will not stand idly by waiting around for a dysfunctional Congress to act. Instead, during the first 100 days of my administration I will take extensive action to accomplish what Congress has failed to do and to build upon President Obama’s executive orders.”

40% Of Millenials Say The Government Should Be Able To Step In And Censor Peoples Speech If It Is

Considered Offensive. Pew Research polled people from several different generations, Silent, Baby Boomers, and Millennials, and the results are interesting. 40% of millennials polled said that they believe that the government should be able to take action to prevent people from giving speeches with content that may offend someone in a minority group. Would this be an infringement on freedom of speech or is it a way to prevent racist violence? Either way Donald Trump had better watch his step.
