One more state goes Red next year they can call constitutional convention and rip apart Constitution

Last week on Thom Hartmann he said next year if the Rs take one more state bringing it to 34, they can have a constitutional convention and rewrite the constitution. Taking out the good parts like peoples welfare and freedom of the press. I asked a local poly sci Professor about this. He kind of poo poo-ed it saying it can happen but has never happened before. I said but we have never had a president Trump before. Doesn't he think that is what the Rs are after.....no answer. I ended by saying We live in Wisconsin, what Walker has done to WI the Rs will now do to the entire country. They don't know this, we do. Local WI media protected Walker. I can only hope the national press media, I cannot count on the television machine to do this, WILL. As you see they are obsessed with Hamilton, and Ivanka hawking her $10Grand bracelet she wore on tv, etc....Trump is tweetering again, so they are following that smokescreen. PAY ATTENTION AMERICANS. We could end up a 3rd world country with a ripped apart Constitution. Damn terrifying.

RogerS Ailes and Stone were also Nixon's advisors

Just finished Thom Hartmann for today. Lamar Waldron, historian, gave us some tasty tidbits. Roger Ailes and Roger Stone were Nixon's men behind the scenes. Stone still has a tattoo of Nixon on his back. They propelled Trump to victory and used Nixon's playbook to win: FEAR IGNORANCE BIGOTRY AND SMEAR. Nixon also played the media like an old hand. They made it a vast echo chamber for their purposes. When he said 'I'm not a crook" in Nov 1973 it was NOT about Watergate. It was about him not paying taxes. Nixon took corporate bribes, like you know who is doing. He had foreign interests. He had no blind trust. He gave his dough to BeBe Ribozzo and when he was out of office BeBe released it to Nixon. FASCISM IS THE MERGER OF CORPORATE AND STATE INTERESTS.

JFK vs DJT We cried this day 53 years ago. Today we cry at the Vulgarian's grab of power

Geography has made us neighbors. History has made us friends. Economics has made us partners, and necessity has made us allies. Those whom God has so joined together, let no man put asunder. John F. Kennedy

We cried this day 53 years ago. Today we cry at the Vulgarian's grab of power.

yup, television machine falling for Cheeto's latest con, hook line and sinker

Cost of defrauding 6000 Trump University students: $25million.
Attacking "Hamilton" cast to distract from this: Priceless.

IMPORTANT, please read and give it some thought and action

Please read and make up your own mind. I would like to add to the bottom of the income list. The average salary/pension of elderly, disabled is $4,000-$10,000 a year. And they will be the first ones Paul Ryan hits. Thanks, Jody.

Subject: FW: Warren Buffett said send this to 20 people. You are one of my 20. Please keep this going to your 20.

The BUFFETT RULE (the Congressional Reform Act of 2017 [see below]), while obviously problematic to implement, appeals to me! And this “pass it on” project seems worth doing.

The BUFFETT Rule

Let's see if these idiots understand what people pressure is all about.


Salary of retired US Presidents .. . . . .. . . . . .. . $180,000 FOR LIFE.



Salary of House/Senate members .. . . . .. . . . $174,000 FOR LIFE. This is stupid



Salary of Speaker of the House .. . . . .. . . . . $223,500 FOR LIFE. This is really stupid



Salary of Majority / Minority Leaders . . .. . . . . $193,400 FOR LIFE. Stupid



Average Salary of a teacher . . .. . . . .. . . . . .. .$40,065



Average Salary of a deployed Soldier . . .. . . .. $38,000



Here’s where the cuts should be made!



Warren Buffett, in a recent interview with CNBC, offers one of the best quotes about the debt ceiling:



"I could end the deficit in five minutes," he told CNBC. "You just pass a law that says that anytime there is a deficit of more than 3% of GDP, all sitting members of Congress are ineligible for re-election".



The 26th Amendment ( granting the right to vote for 18 year-olds ) took only three months and eight days to be ratified! Why? Simple! The people demanded it. That was in 1971 - before computers, e-mail, cell phones, etc.



Of the 27 amendments to the Constitution, seven (7) took one (1) year or less to become the law of the land - all because of public pressure.



Warren Buffett is asking each addressee to forward this email to a minimum of twenty people on their address list; in turn ask each of those to do likewise.



In three days, most people in The United States of America will have the message. This is one idea that really should be passed around.



Congressional Reform Act of 2017



1. No Tenure / No Pension. A Congressman / woman collects a salary while in office and receives no pay when they're out of office.



2. Congress (past, present, & future) participates in Social Security.



All funds in the Congressional retirement fund move to the Social Security system immediately. All future funds flow into the Social Security system, and Congress participates with the American people. It may not be used for any other purpose.



3. Congress can purchase their own retirement plan, just as all Americans do.



4. Congress will no longer vote themselves a pay raise. Congressional pay will rise by the lower of CPI or 3%.



5. Congress loses their current health care system and participates in the same health care system as the American people.



6. Congress must equally abide by all laws they impose on the American people.



7. All contracts with past and present Congressmen/women are void effective 3/1/17. The American people did not make this contract with Congressmen/women.



Congress made all these contracts for themselves. Serving in Congress is an honor, not a career. The Founding Fathers envisioned citizen legislators, so ours should serve their term(s), then go home and go back to work.



If each person contacts a minimum of twenty people, then it will only take three days for most people in the U.S. to receive the message. It's time!



THIS IS HOW YOU FIX CONGRESS!



If you agree, pass it on.

My letter to the editor published Friday

From the Internet: "How are you feeling today? Terrible. Thanks for asking. I'm 71 years old. Disabled. Never been a 10. No kids. Husband incarcerated. Feel very alone. But I am one of the lucky ones, I am white. Husband called to wish me Happy Veterans Day. I advised him unless things change drastically not to even think about applying for parole. He is safer where he is. Better security."

I apologize to the Obamas. We dishonor them with these election results. We never deserved them. Now we have mathematical proof. Perhaps it is arrogant of me, but I won't waste my time or energy convincing some racist we're all God's children. That's going to have to be assigned to someone else. Today there were reports of hijabs being ripped off, a black babydoll in an elevator with a noose around its neck, LGBT hotlines overloaded, Swastikas being painted across America, English classes for immigrants empty. Giving his fans deep tissue massages of fear and loathing, they used the ballot box as an anger management tool.

To say Trump is at all competent is like saying freshly laid asphalt is as nutritious as it looks.Hey, corporate media, Trump didn't tap into people's feelings. He exploited them. Do not normalize this guy, He has a mandate for violating the rule of law. That is a fight, not fate. Obama and Clinton gave speeches full of grace. That may be remembered as naive. When they go low, we resist. Hate won. It won't win forever. We will have each others' backs, shoulders and attics. I do not call for calm and healing. I call to enrage and engage.

The Cabinet: their strategy for draining the swamp is to put the snakes in charge.We know from experience in Wisconsin when Republicans get a mandate they move quickly. Big and Bold? It will be like a Marx Brothers' movie. I got a bill, You got a bill. Passed. Electric Moses and his Disciples are drooling at the prospect of dismantling any program of value to Americans. Like a chainsaw through butter, they will slash ACA, Social Security, Medicaid, Medicare, and return us to a sepia version of old- timey America where people lived before being straitjacketed by Roosevelt.

The poor and disabled will increase the homeless population tenfold. Voucher schools, bombs, fouling the planet, deportees, gay bashing, poison food, racism, police state, press suppression, this is Trump's vision of Paradise. We reject this. The 1% will have their cake and eat it, hoard it, freeze-dry it, so they can carry the frosting in their pockets for later. The fact that nobody else gets a crumb makes it all the more tasty.

Dear Muslims, immigrants, poor, disabled, students, women, blacks and browns: I love you boldly and proudly. We will not break. We will hold the line.

Trump may make me homeless

I am only back on today. Have been crying for 10 days now. The day after the election results I spoke with my Rep and Senator, who are personal friends. I work every day for the elderly, poor and disabled. I am a good advocate, as I am one. Disabled due to abusive husband throwing me down cement stairs. Most folks don't know that as I am well turned out and smart. I was on our DEM Exec Board until last year. While the television machine is obsessing about his Cabinet picks and where he ate a hamburger, Ryan( from my state) has a hard on. The stuff he's wanted to demolish since he cut his eye teeth is now in reach. Low Income Housing, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security. My Rep and Senator told me this may be done in the first 3 months. Go online and check out Ryan's "plan" to modernize. The stuff Walker has big and bolded here will now be done to the entire country. When these Rs get power they move FAST. They have burned WI to the ground. Make no mistake, esp if Trump is only a figurehead, this stuff gets done fast. We have no power and they have no morals. All the WI guys Priebus, Walker, Johnson, Ryan are pure evil and greed. Our homeless pop will increase tenfold. It is terrifying. I will post my letter to the editor published Friday later on today.p.s. I have never prayed this hard in my entire life.
