What the GOP Stands For

O-M-G …. this malaise is nationwide! May the force be with us on Election Day!

Originally posted on Nel's New Day:

The GOP consistently asserts that it’s the party of values, that the Democrats lack morality and integrity. Here are some examples of their values from just the past week.

GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush opposes almost everything that his opponent Donald Trump represents and attacks Trump for supporting Planned Parenthood, tax increases, single-payer health insurance, and Democrats. Meanwhile Trump trashes Bush about his “love” for immigrants, speaking Spanish, and being weak. When asked if he would support Trump if the business mogul won the GOP nomination, Bush said, “Of course.” He can abandon all of his ideals because “we need to be unified. We need to win.” Trump has signed the “pledge” to support the winning GOP candidate, but it’s not legally binding.

This is an update of a previous blog. As a registered moderate republican, I have committed to NOT vote republican until one of their candidates  demonstrates the courage to stand up to the far right, tea party conservatives when they spout their racist rhetoric such as our President is a Muslim and not a U.S. citizen.

Another problem that I have with the tea party, far right, republican conservatives is that they cannot say that they are for anything, especially when it pertains to the middle class. They are for reducing taxes mostly for the rich and businesses; increasing defense spending; privatizing social security; passing religious freedom acts and anti abortion laws; shutting down Planned Parenthood; portraying the “Black Lives Matter” as a hate group; denying the science of climate change so they can do away with the EPA at the bidding of special interests; fighting any adjustments to current gun laws to allow for universal…

At the end of the day .… “Labor Day Weekend …. Labor Movement”!!

LABOR DAY WEEKEND …. LABOR MOVEMENT

I’ll be taking a few days off for this long weekend.

I didn’t want to “leave” without honoring the labor movement of old times.

They were the ones who laid the foundation to the prosperity which was once part of this country.

Unions were very important in setting the groundwork.

The pride, the strength and the stamina of this country was set there.

It’s about time to fight to get it back again.

I will be back soon.

Enjoy and be safe.

Labor Day in the United States is a public holiday celebrated on the first Monday in September.

It honors the American labor movement and the contributions that workers have made to the strength, prosperity, and well-being of their country.

Labor Day was promoted by the Central Labor Union and the Knights of Labor, who organized the first parade in New York City. After the Haymarket Massacre in Chicago on May 4, 1886, U.S. President Grover Clevelandfeared that commemorating Labor Day on May 1 could become an opportunity to commemorate the affair. Therefore, in 1887, the United States holiday was established in September to support the Labor Day that the Knights favored.

History

In 1882, Matthew Maguire, a machinist, first proposed the holiday while serving as secretary of the CLU (Central Labor Union) of New York. Others argue that it was first proposed by Peter J. McGuire of the American Federation of Labor in May 1882,[3] after witnessing the annual labor festival held in Toronto, Canada. Oregon was the first state to make it a holiday on February 21, 1887. By the time it became a federal holiday in 1894, thirty states officially celebrated Labor Day.

Following the deaths of a number of workers at the hands of the U.S. military and U.S. Marshals during the Pullman Strike, the United States Congress unanimously voted to approve rush legislation that made Labor Day a national holiday; President Grover Cleveland signed it into law a mere six days after the end of the strike.

The September date originally chosen by the CLU of New York and observed by many of the nation’s trade unions for the previous several years was selected rather than the more widespread International Workers’ Day because Cleveland was concerned that observance of the latter would be associated with the nascent socialist and anarchist movements that, though distinct from one another, had rallied to commemorate the Haymarket Affair in International Workers’ Day. All U.S. states, the District of Columbia, and the territories have made it a statutory holiday.

Thoughts for today, #234 …. “President Obama: Denali vs Denial”!!


DenaOb

~~September 4, 2015~~ 

DENALI versus DENIAL

President Obama’s three-day trip to Alaska  week will literally change the map of the nation’s 49th state.

Mount McKinley — the 20,237-foot mountain and the tallest in North America — has been renamed Denali, as it was originally known by Alaska Natives before it was renamed to honor President William McKinley.

The mountain, which sits in the 6 million-acre Denali national park, has been known as Denali in Alaska since 1975. Under an order signed by Interior Secretary Sally Jewell, the Denali name will also take effect for all federal usage and, therefore, on all official maps.

The order was signed in October 2015 but the White House asked that it be announced Monday as part of Obama’s trip to Alaska to highlight the effects of climate change in the Arctic.

The White House said the name change “recognizes the sacred status of Denali to generations of Alaska Natives.”

Denali, meaning “the great one” in the Athabaskan language of Alaska natives, was the original name of the mountain.

YET …. 

Obama Explains Why He Approved Arctic Drilling In The Face Of Climate Concerns

After fielding a question about climate denial, the president took on the controversial question of drilling in the Arctic — something that has been seen as contradictory to his interest in fighting climate change.

President Obama began by pointing out that he has already shut off the most sensitive Arctic areas to drilling, including the Bristol Bay, home to a number of endangered species and 40 percent of America’s wild-caught seafood.

In April, his administration also finalized a proposal to set aside a majority of Alaska’s Arctic National Wildlife Refuge as wilderness, which prevent drilling across some 12 million acres across northeastern Alaska.

But according to the president, it’s impossible to stop oil exploration in the Arctic completely.

~Obama Just Approved Offshore Oil Drilling In The Arctic~

~Published on May 12, 2015~

Shell first looked into drilling in the Arctic in 2012 but had to stop because of numerous safety and operational problems. Now they’re back at it, and the Obama administration just approved offshore drilling in the Chukchi Sea. Shell is going to start sending exploratory ships, though the company still needs approval from several other federal and state agencies.

Historic Photo of the Day: Don Pedro Albizu Campos


Dr. Rex:

“El Maestro” … “Don Pedro spent most of his adult life in jail, and was tortured in prison.” …. Don Pedro Albizu Campos: “His name belongs in the pantheon of freedom”!!

War Against All Puerto Ricans: Revolution and Terror in America’s Colony

Pedro Albizu Campos is the central figure in the history of the Puerto Rican independence movement. 

Don Pedro graduated from Harvard University and Harvard Law School (the first Puerto Rican to graduate from both) and became the president of the Nationalist Party. 

After leading an island-wide agricultural strike in the mid 1930s, he was jailed in 1936 on the same charges as Oscar López Rivera: “seditious conspiracy to overthrow the US government.”  

Don Pedro spent most of his adult life in jail, and was tortured in prison. 

His name belongs in the pantheon of freedom: along with Simón Bolívar, José Martí, Mahatma Gandhi, and Nelson Mandela. 

This enduring image of Don Pedro, showing his passion and commitment, was taken during one of his speeches:
