Prolific poet and writer Maya Angelou would’ve turned 90 on Wednesday, April 4, 2018.
To honor and celebrate the phenomenal woman who penned the powerful “Still I Rise,” Google has dedicated the day’s doodle on its search homepage to Angelou, who died in 2014 at age 86.

The doodle is accompanied by an animated reading of “Still I Rise,” featuring the voices of celebrities she influenced, including Oprah Winfrey, Alicia Keys, America Ferrera and Laverne Cox. Her only son, Guy Johnson, also lends his voice.

“Maya Angelou is not what she has done or written or spoken, it’s how she did it all,” Winfrey told Google.

“She moved through the world with unshakeable calm, confidence, and a fiery, fierce grace and abounding love.”

Wednesday also marks the 50th anniversary of the assassination of Martin Luther King Jr., a friend of the author’s.

For more than 30 years, in lieu of celebrating her birthday, Angelou sent flowers to Coretta Scott King on April 4.

INTERNATIONAL WOMEN’S DAY

The tradition began with the first National Women’s Day in 1909 and its roots are in campaigning for better pay and voting rights.

What is this year’s theme?
The theme this year is #PressforProgress.

The website says:

“We can’t be complacent. Now, more than ever, there’s a strong call-to-action to press forward and progress gender parity.

“A strong call to #PressforProgress. A strong call to motivate and unite friends, colleagues and whole communities to think, act and be gender inclusive.”

March 8 is a global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women

The day also marks a call to action for accelerating gender parity.

International Women’s Day (IWD) has been observed since in the early 1900’s – a time of great expansion and turbulence in the industrialized world that saw booming population growth and the rise of radical ideologies.

International Women’s Day is a collective day of global celebration and a call for gender parity. No one government, NGO, charity, corporation, academic institution, women’s network or media hub is solely responsible for International Women’s Day.

Many organizations declare an annual IWD theme that supports their specific agenda or cause, and some of these are adopted more widely with relevance than others.

“The story of women’s struggle for equality belongs to no single feminist nor to any one organization but to the collective efforts of all who care about human rights,” says world-renowned feminist, journalist and social and political activist Gloria Steinem.

Thus International Women’s Day is all about unity, celebration, reflection, advocacy and action – whatever that looks like globally at a local level. But one thing is for sure, International Women’s Day has been occurring for well over a century – and continues to grow from strength to strength.

Keith Olbermann, #65 …. “Drumpf’s First 100 Days …. And What Has He Done? …. ABSOLUTELY NOTHING …. “!!


~~April 29, 2017~~ 

HE SET HIS OWN BENCHMARK

Congress Prevents Government From Shutting Down on Trump’s 100th Day

As of Friday, April 28, the only piece of legislation passed by the current Congress was to avoid a government shutdown by approving a one-week spending measure.

How’s that for competence, skill, aptitude, proficiency and effectiveness?

WASHINGTON

(the only piece of legislation passed in 100 days)

Averting a political embarrassment ahead of Drumpf’s 100th day in office, Congress on Friday, April 29, approved a one-week spending measure that avoids a government shutdown, providing lawmakers with extra time to finish negotiations on a long-term spending package.

I feel this is important information about what is happening in the Republican Administration lead by Drumpf and what we need to be aware of.

He has posted installment #65.

ONE HUNDRED DAYS IN OFFICE

Drumpf, on Friday – April 29 – touted the accomplishments of his first 100 days in office, calling his administration one of the “most successful” in history.

“My fellow Americans, I truly believe that the first 100 days of my administration has been just about the most successful in our country’s history,” Drumpf said during his weekly address. “Our country is going up, and it’s going up fast.”

Drumpf’s comments echoed those he made earlier Friday at the White House, saying, “It’s a false standard, 100 days, but I have to tell you, I don’t think anybody has done what we’ve been able to do in 100 days.”

Drumpf has seen historically low approval ratings in the early days of his administration and faced several setbacks on his agenda.

Keith Olbermann, #45 …. “TRUMPCARE …. Gutting Health Care Will Kill Americans …. “!!


KO-45

~~March 15, 2017~~ 

APOCALYPSE FORETOLD

I’ve been in healthcare all my professional life. At this time, I’ve been retired for 4 years.

I can truly tell you, from the front lines, that healthcare is a major issue in the lives of all Americans.

You never know when any medical condition will strike you or any member of your family.

It can deal a devastating blow to life as you know it … emotionally and financially.

It’s my strong personal belief that we are on this Earth to help each other when needed.

We are not here to hurt anyone!

Trumpcare vs. Obamacare

The Congressional Budget Office report on Trumpcare is out, and it’s devastating: 14 million people losing insurance in the first year, 24 million over time, with premiums soaring for older, lower-income Americans — in many cases, the very people who went strongly for President Trump.

The C.B.O. thinks it would reduce the deficit, but only marginally, around $30 billion a year in a $19 trillion economy.

Obamacare imposes a mandate to induce healthy people to sign up, offers means-tested subsidies to make insurance affordable and expands Medicaid to take care of people with really low incomes. Trumpcare eliminates the mandate, slashes subsidies overall and redirects them to those who don’t need them and sharply cuts Medicaid.

Of course that leads to a huge drop in coverage.
