All this talk about helping the FedWorkers brings home to me how many of us know ZERO about poors


how poor people live...EVERY DAY...unemployment is half of regular salary.

And you can't just GET FoodStamps...you need a social worker and mucho documentation...3 months of bank statements, 3 months of pay stubs....ALL assets cannot be over $2,000....that includes home and automobile, stocks, etc...You cannot own more than $2Grand of assets...they will even ask you how much $$ you have in your wallet/purse...in the in person interview...and here in WI a single adult gets 49cents a day...

My people that I work for every day are poor disabled and elderly...they make from $4Grand -$15Grand a year. When they see these stories on the TV where folks are lamenting having to pawn jewelry or they can't go out to dinner for their Anniv...or their kid can't go to hockey....my people roll their eyes...

I wish my poors could go on TV 24 hrs a day...then Americans would see how it really is....their shutdown never ends...

Fugelsang schools College Republicans RE: MLK Day...


College Republicans
@gvsuGOP

#DoYouKnow which US President made MLK Day a #National #Holiday? Ronald Reagan did! #GOP

John Fugelsang Retweeted College Republicans

“If an individual wants to discriminate against Negroes or others in selling or renting his house, it is his right to do so.” - Ronald Reagan, 1966

Never forget - there was a veto-proof majority, and that's why Reagan signed #MLKDay into law.

THIS IS A FINE ARTICLE... MLK was a radical.....like all my heroes....63% of Americans were against him in the 60s...

Martin Luther King was no prophet of unity. He was a radical

King was a champion of the poor and oppressed. If we want to truly honor his legacy, we’ll struggle to finish his work

Martin Luther King Jr is useful to just about everyone nowadays. For President Donald Trump, celebrating King is a chance to tell everyone that he shares “his dream of equality, freedom, justice, and peace”. For Ram trucks, it’s a chance to, well, sell trucks.

This wasn’t always the case. In 1983, 15 years after King’s death, 22 senators voted against an official holiday honoring him on the third Monday in January. The North Carolina senator Jesse Helms undertook a 16-day filibuster of the bill, claiming that King’s “action-oriented Marxism” was “not compatible with the concepts of this country”. He was joined in his opposition by Senators John McCain, Orrin Hatch, and Chuck Grassley, among others.


Reagan reluctantly signed the legislation, all the while grumbling that he would have preferred “a day similar to Lincoln’s birthday, which is not technically a national holiday”.

And guess what? He had a reason to be hesitant. The real Martin Luther King Jr stood for a radical vision of equality, justice, and anti-militarism that rebelled against Reagan’s entire agenda. Today more than ever, we need to rediscover that champion of working people.


The Disneyified version of Dr King begins and ends with his role as a civil rights leader, who summoned Christian teachings, as well as Gandhian tactics, and told us of his dream that “one day this nation will rise up and live out the true meaning of its creed: ‘We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men are created equal.’”

But in that same oft-quoted I Have a Dream speech from 1963, King celebrated the “marvelous new militancy which has engulfed the Negro community” and spoke of the “fierce urgency of now”. For his own militancy, King was hounded by the FBI, denounced as a communist, and bombarded with death threats. Only 22% of Americans approved of the Freedom Rides fighting segregated transportation. By the mid-1960s, 63% of Americans had an unfavorable opinion of King, according to polls.

"One place where there's definitely no collusion is between Rudy Giuliani's brain and his mouth."

Thursday Trevor Noah said: “One place where there’s definitely no collusion is between Rudy Giuliani’s brain and his mouth.”

Perhaps the confusion is the point, he added. “Maybe the master plan is to keep creating so many new scandals that Robert Mueller can never finish his investigation.”

Ann Coulter: Federal workers have the BEST benefits and vacation days, etc. in the world. I call BS.

Ann Coulter was yapping that she advises Trump and it is none of our business...she went on to say that Federal workers have the BEST benefits and vacation days, etc. in the world. I am here to tell you that is BS...I worked for the USDA late 80s to early 90s and during that time I could not afford health ins as they wanted 1/2 of my monthly pay back...State always trumped Federal benefits. State, City, Federal last...good thing I was young, and didn't get sick....
