VOTE AGAINST GOP CONTROL

~WE CANNOT WAIT FOR ANYONE TO SAVE US~

Capt. Chesley Sullenberger

MAY DAY, MAY DAY, MAY DAY!

I was always impressed by this American human being.

I didn’t know much about him until the ‘miracle in the Hudson’ happened.

For sure, I watched the movie.

Yet, last night, as I watched  him on ‘The Last Word‘, I learned to admire, respect even more and totally agree with him.

His gravitas is impressive.

Take a look!

The pilot who orchestrated a dramatic plane landing in the Hudson River nearly 10 years ago encouraged Americans to vote in next week’s midterm elections in a Washington Post op-ed published Monday, October 29, writing that “we cannot wait for someone to save us.”
“The fabric of our nation is under attack, while shame – a timeless beacon of right and wrong – seems dead,” Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger, whose “Miracle on the Hudson” landing in 2009 spared the lives of all 155 passengers aboard, writes.

“This is not the America I know and love.

We’re better than this.”

The op-ed comes toward the close of a wrenching political season marked by divisive language, conspiracy theories and race-baiting attacks, from Drumpf to local leaders.

“We cannot wait for someone to save us.

We must do it ourselves.

This Election Day is a crucial opportunity to again demonstrate the best in each of us by doing our duty and voting for leaders who are committed to the values that will unite and protect us,” Sullenberger writes nearly a week before next week’s elections.

Following the 2009 landing, Sullenberger says that he realized his fame had given him “a greater voice.”

“I knew I could not walk away but had an obligation to use this bully pulpit for good and as an advocate for the safety of the traveling public,” he writes.

“I feel that I now have yet another mission, as a defender of our democracy.”

Ari Melber …. “The Last Word …. Talking Medicaid Cuts With Family Impacted by Disability …. “!!

BREAKING DOWN IN TEARS

This will be a short post because I would like those who visit to watch the video. This is only one of the many American citizens with disabilities whose life will be in peril if this monstruosity:

Better Health Care Bill” is passed by Congress.

Medicaid isn’t about politics, it’s about lives
Mike Phillips is severely physically disabled, but thanks to Medicaid, he’s able to be cared for at home by his family.

In a remarkable interview with Ari Melber, Mike and his mother Karen Clay explain how Medicaid cuts would literally end life as they know it.

Ari Melber Breaks Down in Tears While Talking Medicaid Cuts With Family Impacted by Disability

~~Published on Jun 24, 2017~~

During June 23rd’s broadcast of MSNBC’s The Last Word, guest host Ari Melber spoke to Mike Phillips and his mother, Karen Clay.

Phillips lives with spinal muscular atrophy and Clay is his full-time caregiver. Melber spoke with the two because Phillips stands to lose Medicaid benefits if the proposed Senate health care bill is passed.

YOU ARE NOT ALONE 

We are the majority!

I was watching Lawrence O’Donnell’s show last night, January 12.

I share this because it gives me a bit of hope.

His words and information gave me some solace.

I thought the country had chosen this inept, idiotic man-child.

Now it seems it was Russia all along, among other things.

Sad to see the country heading this way.

The numbers show that the majority of Americans aren’t happy with Mr. Donald.

These numbers don’t lie!

A Quinnipiac Poll shows majorities of Americans don’t think he will govern well.

‘He will take the oath of office in one week a weaker politician than he was on election night’!

Get ready!

It will be a bumpy ride!!

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

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).

AMERICAN PEOPLE STILL FIGHTING 

Lawrence O’Donnell presented an excellent explanation on his weekly show about the struggle, protection, protest taking place in the Dakotas.

I found the video of his presentation and would like to share it with you.

Add to that, the fact that yesterday, the pipeline company attacked Native Americans with dogs and pepper spray.

This is something that needs to be shared because other stories in the media are overshadowing the fact that special interests are trying to ‘step out’ on complying with promises/treaties made to the Native Americans of this country.

This should be front page news!!

Shame, America, shame!

On September 3, the Dakota Access Pipeline Company attacked Native Americans with dogs and pepper spray as they protested against the $3.8 billion pipeline’s construction.

‘This Nation Was Founded on Genocide’

From the start of colonial intrusion, the free and original peoples of this hemisphere  “have been treated as enemies and dealt with more harshly than any other enemy in any other war.”

While this in itself is not news, the source of this statement is.

This quote comes not from an activist, a historian or a researcher squirreled away in an obscure academic corner, but from a high-profile commentator speaking on MSNBC.

“After all our other wars we signed treaties and lived by those treaties,” noted Lawrence O’Donnell at the segment at the end of the August 25 edition of his nightly news show The Last Word.

“After World War 2 we then did everything we possibly could to help rebuild Germany.”

In other words, “no Native American tribe has ever been treated as well as we treated Germans after World War 2.”

O’Donnell issues this scathing indictment by way of explaining the peaceful protests against the Dakota Access oil pipeline. He talks of Republican Presidential nominee Donald Trump’s fear of foreign invaders “who want to change our way of life” and notes that it’s “a fear that Native Americans have lived with every day for over five hundred years.”

“The original sin of this country is that we invaders shot and murdered our way across the land killing every Native American we could, and making treaties with the rest,” he says.

“This country was founded on genocide before the word genocide was invented, before there was a war crimes tribunal in The Hague.”

Nor does he end there. He explains how “Every. Single. Treaty.” has been broken; how only a few generations have passed since the “business of killing Indians” has ceased. He cites the camps near Standing Rock as potent reminders of despicable acts most Americans would rather forget … and on and on.

It’s a statement worth watching more than a few times, and he ends with a statement that resonates, a paying of respect to the resilience and strength of Natives:

“The people who have always known what is truly sacred in this world.”
