Thoughts for today, #450 …. “Carrie Fisher Described Donald Trump Perfectly …. “!!

WE LOST ANOTHER AMAZING HUMAN BEING

She was a true intellectual.

She will be missed dearly. Her great sense of humor will forever be remembered.

We lost an important, loud voice against the ‘man’!

Carrie Frances Fisher (October 21, 1956 – December 27, 2016) was an American actress, writer, producer, and humorist.

She was the daughter of singer Eddie Fisher and actress Debbie Reynolds.

Fisher was best known for playing Princess Leia in the Star Wars film series. Her other film roles included Shampoo (1975), The Blues Brothers (1980), Hannah and Her Sisters (1986), The ‘Burbs (1989), and When Harry Met Sally … (1989).

Fisher was also known for her semi-autobiographical novels, including Postcards from the Edge and the screenplay for the film of the same name, as well as her autobiographical one-woman play and its nonfiction book, Wishful Drinking, based on the show.

She additionally served as a script doctor, working on other writers’ screenplays. In later years, she earned praise for speaking publicly about her experiences with bipolar disorder and drug addiction.

Fisher died at the age of 60 on December 27, 2016, four days after going into cardiac arrest near the end of a transatlantic flight from London to Los Angeles.

Michael Moore …. “Getting ready for what is coming our way …. 2017 …. Be Prepared ….. “!!

~~December 24, 2016~~

THE UNTHINKABLE AND UNAVOIDABLE

It happened.

There are no ‘if’s or but’s’ about it.

This is a done deal.

No way around it.

I watched The Last Word with Lawrence O’Donnell last Thursday, December 22.

Michael Moore was his guest that night.

His segment was impressive.

Here’s only but a part of it.

I wish I could have found all of it.

Anyway, here’s the plan Mr. Moore lays out for this new year.

Michael Moore’s 5-Point Plan to Combat Trump in 2017

Well-known and loved liberal mind Michael Moore appeared on MSNBC to explain his five-point plan to resist Donald Trump in 2017.

Moore has already made waves several times since the election, most notably with his plan to immediately have Donald Trump impeached, but he has come back to the the public with a level-headed and practical way everyone can move into the new year with a plan – and hope.

Visit your Congressional representative, whether in the House or in the Senate.

(Moore reminds those watching that Congress is in recess, and all representatives will be home.)

Insist that the Democratic National Committee appoint leaders who fall within the progressive spectrum.

blinemm-sbline

Form your very own rapid-response team.

(This is explained as a team made up of  neighbors, friends, or family who will be part of a text, call, or Facebook tree designed to prompt immediate response to Trump by contacting representatives, applying social media pressure, etc. The goal? To make sure your voices are heard.)

Plan to be a part of a protest taking place during Trump’s inauguration weekend.

Have a Plan B – as bad as you think it’s going to be, it’s actually going to be worse.

(His behavior since the election, coupled with his cabinet picks have given us a “coming attraction.” Be prepared).

STILL GRIEVING, STILL MOURNING

The Electoral College Meets Today

I’m not naive enough to think that they will have a day of ‘profiles in courage‘ and make any significant decision that will ‘right‘ the ‘wrong‘ that is happening in the country.

I know plenty of people who have expressed their feelings.

Many have said … let it go. It’s time to accept and move on.

Give the guy a chance.

In my heart I know I can’t. 

In my heart I know this isn’t the right way for the country to go.

It will eventually affect the way the whole world will go.

I’ve tired to put into words the feelings in my heart, my soul, my psyche.

Words fail me.

Scrolling through Facebook, I found some words that resonate to much with my own feelings.

I’d like to share them with you.

These words starkly and precisely say what I felt since November 8, election night.

A fog that doesn’t want to lift ….

Thoughts for today, #418 …. “Clinton vs. Trump …. Most-Watched Presidential Debate Ever …. “!

~~September 39, 2016~~ 

CLINTON-TRUMP SHOWDOWN

The Most-Watched Presidential Debate Ever

An estimated 84 million people watched Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump in their first debate Monday, September 26, according to TV ratings data from Nielsen, making it the most-watched debate ever.

These figures top the ratings for the 1980 debate between Jimmy Carter and Ronald Reagan, when just under 81 million people tuned in.

As The Associated Press reports,

“No debate since then had exceeded 70 million viewers.”

Nielsen’s numbers include 13 television networks.

They don’t account for viewers who watched the debate online – and NPR’s media correspondent David Folkenflik has been crunching those numbers.

“As it appears in … full read/full credit”

When you add viewers who used other ‘channels’, the number increases to 100 million.

Other options included Twitter, YouTube and varied social media.

“If you are interested enough to watch, I hope you’re interested enough to vote.”

Ellen DeGeneres

I agree!

Go vote!

Rachel Maddow Show …. “Talking Arizona Latino Vote …. ‘Mi Familia Vota’ …. “!!


Rac3

~~September 3, 2016~~ 

ARIZONA LATINO VOTE 

Rachel discussed the fact that 31% of the Arizona population is Latino.

AZ is a deeply red state which has the potential of become blue in 2016.

There’s a local movement intensely trying to register locals in time to be able to vote for the Presidential elections come November 8.

Rachel explained the situation and interviewed Francisco Heredia.

Take a look at the TV ad which has been airing locally.

It’s an effort of many television personalities, who have put aside their differences and competing TV stations.

All with the purpose of activating registration of the Latino vote.

New Spanish-language TV ad in Arizona designed to boost Hispanic voter registration

A first-of-its-kind media campaign launches in Arizona on Wednesday, August 31, in hopes of boosting Hispanic voter registration to historic highs

A new public service announcement co-produced by the state’s largest Spanish-language television and radio stations is set to air roughly 2,500 times through Election Day on Univision and Telemundo television stations and will feature DJ’s and talk show hosts from some of the state’s most popular Spanish-language radio stations, according to organizers.

The campaign is the brainchild of Mi Familia Vota, a nonpartisan voter registration group that is seeking to register roughly 95,000 new Latino voters in six states this year.

While volunteers are rounding up new registrants in California, Colorado, Florida, Nevada and Texas, Arizona is seen as the crown jewel of the effort this year.

That’s because no other state has been on the front lines of the years-long immigration policy fights and Hispanic leaders are eager to demonstrate their community’s growing political clout in the state.

No matter how a new voter registers, Mi Familia Vota is hoping to boost the numbers with its new ad campaign, which stars Spanish-language television and radio news anchors and morning talk show hosts. 

The ad begins with anchors asking whether the viewer is 18 or older and registered to vote. It reminds the viewer that voter registration continues in Arizona through Oct. 10.

Lat

“We are extremely proud of our Latino media partners,” said Ben Monterroso, executive director of Mi Familia Vota. “They are making history in an already historic election by continuing to help build political power for the Latino community.”

The campaign is backed by Azteca America; the Phoenix and Tucson affiliates of Univision and Telemundo; Univision-owned radio stations Que Buena 105.9 FM, Mas Variedad 106.3 FM and Latino Mix 100.3 FM; Contacto Total, a Phoenix-area radio station; stations owned by Entravision Radio, including La Tricolor 103.5 FM, Jose 106.9 and 107.1 FM & ESPN 710 AM; Mary Rabago Productions LLC; Mujeres Unicas LLC; Onda 1190-AM; Prensa Hispana; Teleritmo; and UniMás Arizona.
