An open letter to Senator Franken and the entire Democratic Caucus

Senator Franken,

I write to you not just about your reputed pending career decision, but about a matter of utmost importance: The future of the Democratic Party.

Humanity’s a primitive and immature Species

From The global conversation.

Say hello to Robbie the robot: he’s non-union too.

Guess where a lot of this tax windfall is going to go….not to pay raises, not to new jobs, not to improved worker benefits. Robbie the robot doesn’t need a coffee break or a vacation. And Robbie’s kids will go to work the day that they are born, and work 24 hours a day, except for an occasional software tweak and a few drops of oil.

Traitors do not deserve government pensions in any form

Having lied to the FBI on matters of national security, Michael Flynn should forfeit all military retirement benefits and priviledges that he would otherwise be entitled to.

And Flynn should be behind bars. Why do ordinary citizens face severe legal consequences but not traitors like Flynn?

Signs of "A Crash"

Thom,

Came across this today. It could be that you are almost right on the button.

Thanks again for all that you do.

Inspection- An Open Letter to the Republican Party

A suggestion: post a link to this, or send it, to your Republican friends.

Tax and slash

1. How is it that we Americans will pay more taxes and get less services?

2. How is it that payroll taxes, that pay for Social Security, MEDICARE, and MEDICAID, amount to over a trillion dollars, and the new tax proposal only funds 65 billion?

SEXUAL HYSTERIA

CHARLIE ROSE accused of sexual harassement and fired from both CBS and NPR where he'd been a respected interviewer for decades, a deacon of good society. One of the eight women who filed a complaint, said he returned to his own living room in a slightly revealing robe and she was offended. Culturally in the past if that had been the reverse and a woman, it most likely would have been seen as being sexually flirtatious even invited.

PURE LIBERAL

PURE LIBERAL, from 1933 to 1969, America seen the greatest growth of the middle class in history, fought and help win WW2, brought their country out of a depression ,became known worldwide for their compassionate aid and landed a man on the moon AND during that period ONLY ONE conservative government was elected by the people and that Dwight D Eisenhower government by today's right wing standards would be considered liberals. Those a facts.

Speeding Ticket Vs. Voter Fraud

If the fine for speeding was $10,000 and 5 years in Jail. Would there be any speeders out there?

Then, why would you consider voting illegally; since that is the fine and penalty for voter fraud?

RUSSIAN HACKING that's RICH

What Americans and in some cases Canadians should FEAR is NOT the Russians , but their own governments , almost certainly they've been overrun by lobbyists paid for by the likes of corporate special interests , the Koch brothers, Sheldon Adelson or the Mercer family, This new Russian scare is nothing but a diversionary tactic to deflect the rality of the moment.. America real enemy is Trump government and the right wingers run by millionaires and billionaires, that are at this minute eliminating all legislative government obstacles to their wholesale looting of America

FUTURE HARD TIMES

Voting right wing TODAY has LONG TERM economical consequences that will effect us all. Do you really think it will be BUSINESS as USUAL when climate change turns up the dial in the middle latitudes to oppressive hot house heat, these early stage worldwide wildfires increase and intensify, worldwide torrential rain storms become the norm, along with biblical super storms and hundreds of millions of climate refugees are crashing all our borders trying to escape the killing heat.

NOT FORGOTTEN

Kuala Lumpur War Crimes Commission

"In November 2013, the tribunal found the State of Israel guilty of genocide of the Palestinian people and convicted former Israeli general Amos Yaron for crimes against humanity and genocide for his involvement in the Sabra and Shatila massacre."

INTERESTINGLY within months of that conviction TWO Malaysian airliners would either go missing or crash killing 537 people and forcing the financial collapse of the national airline.

Message for the Trumpsters: You suck.

It is just a little over one year ago (the day after the election) that I lowered my flag to half-mast. This was intended to recognize what a huge mess we were in for from electing Donald Trump as president*.
