I have a blog that I use to post items that are connected to the Progressive Movement and about how we can educate ourselves about how dangerous religious delusion is.

Abdul El-Sayed for Governor of Michigan

I sure hope that the good people of this once great state of Michigan don’t dwell on this good man’s name and aren’t intimidated by his Muslim background and consider him on his merits only.

He is a very smart and altruistic person that is aware of the plight of the people that the current administration so easily dismisses.

The Snyder administration is using a very narrow minded view of things to discriminate against certain groups and to deny the rights of others.

His (Snyder’s) administration is using government to deny rights to, and access to some public services, by selling off public programs to private (for profit, of course) entities.

It’s not only the Flint water crisis where he poisoned (for life in some cases) over 9000 children with lead tainted water….

It’s also the fact that Snyder cut $1.2 billion from the funds for public schools and gave this tax money (it’s yours too) to the owners of private charter schools that are run to make profits. WTF???

He also signed a contract with a filthy, greedy company to feed the incarcerated in our state prisons rotten and rat chewed upon food, also for profits.

Snyder also had the CONservatives in our GOP majority run legislature to pass a stupid “right to work” law (for lower wages and no benefits) in the waning hours of a session when the ones that would have opposed it, the Democrats, had conveniently gone home for the day.

He also is an enemy to the LGBT community by backing a screwed up, so-called “religious freedom” law that allows emergency personal to discriminate against anyone they believe to be homosexual and refuse to treat them (even in life threatening situations).

Then there is a woman’s right to control her own body that the GOP thinks they have a right to deny (they don’t). Snyder sided with an extremist religious group to allow part of the fee paid for a specialty license plate with the words “Choose Life” on it to go to them to advance their discriminatory views on abortion. It is a gross violation of the separation of church and state. This group is profiting from fees paid to the state for license plate renewal. It’s just plain wrong.

Abdul El-Sayed is what this state needs to restore honesty and openness to the governor’s office after the debacle of the #SnyderFails administration. He has run our state and its public services into the ground long enough.

Google will confirm all these claims. I am new at this (relatively) and if I supply all the links, you’ll still come back with the ones I missed….. curse Google and love it too…

Make sure you get out and vote in the next election.

Are we going to let this crap continue?

There is a bill that has been put before the Congress to give Single-Payer Healthcare to all which would bring the United States into the 21st century like all the other developed industrial nations.

The bill is designated H.R. 676 and it is the much needed bill to bring us the health care system we deserve.

Click here for a guide to the information you’ll need to contact your representatives and also there are some suggestions as to what works the best.

Please let your representatives in Washington DC know that we will accept nothing less.

By signing a petition and taking as many other actions as you can, you can be a part of the social revolution America needs, and has needed, since before the Reagan presidency.

Follow my blog and send me an email via the comments section and tell me what you think.  Open discussion is good.

Thank you.

On the Wings of the Night

Look what they’re doing (somewhat) covertly hoping you won’t notice.

While the main distraction was being perpetuated, see what your new (cough) president and his fascist, racist, bigoted cronies were up to……

When they thought that no one would notice……. too much, this is a list (that’s probably not 100% complete) of things introduced in the House of Representatives:

  1. HR 861- Terminate the Environmental Protection Agency
  2. HR 610- Vouchers for Public Education
  3. HR 899- Terminate the Department of Education
  4. HJR 69- Repeal rule Protecting Wildlife
  5. HR 370- Repeal the Affordable Care Act
  6. HR 354- De-fund Planned Parenthood
  7. HR 785- National Right to Work law (this one would effectively end all unions)
  8. HR 83-   Mobilizing Against Sanctuary Cities
  9. HR 147- Criminalizing Abortion (Prenatal Nondiscrimination Act)
  10. HR 808- Sanctions against Iran

I have never seen, or ever thought I’d see, such dysfunction and deceit in the elected officials in this country.


I guess I should have known when Sarah Palin emerged and took ignorance to new lofty heights in politics.


Then I became aware of the likes of dumb shit Michele Bachmann and Joni Ernst and realized that we had entered some form of alternate intelligence…… I mean when I was younger and didn’t pay as much attention to politics as I do now, I at least knew that even if someone was on the other side of an issue, that there was a bit of decorum politely extended and rational, civilized discussions would take place. Oh well…


Now I’m nearly ready to jump ship and swim until I die bcause the grip these semi-literate hate mongers have on the true illiterate hate mongers is, in my estimation beyond the point of no return.


Having said that…….I’ll be back!!!

A Rant to my State Representative

Needless to say I was not happy with his canned answer as to why the legislature is dragging it’s feet on marijuana legalization….

This:

Well Jim, I see that you are towing the (hateful party line) and still are singing the same old tune about a pathway to harder drugs…..people like you are so uninformed that logic is useless.

In fact, I’ve seen several testimonies where people profess that by smoking marijuana they were able to get off dangerous prescription pain killers, alcohol and other hard drugs (that I vehemently object to, like crystal meth and crystals of another kind [I’m not totally up on all that, I just know that they are there]). But cosmos forbid that helping them is akin to enabling them…..

You and your kind are only interested in major drug company profits, DAMN the damage they inflict.

The assault on our public education systems (in favor of for profit charter schools thanks to (governor Rick Snyder) “robbing’ $1.2 billion from our public schools [was that Betsy DeVos too?]),  the refusal to support a livable minimum wage, or even a guaranteed minimum stipend that keeps people off the streets from being homeless destitute individuals, and, cosmos forbid (again, but seriously, I’m atheist), a monthly payment that allows them to have an address so they can actually apply for a job and hopefully support themselves without public assistance.

THAT would be “enabling them”… (bullshit!!!)….

Not many that are forced by unseen, and by no fault of their own most times, to be on welfare want to be on it, but they are just so behind the “eight ball” that getting out of this endless cycle of poverty that they simply, in many cases, just give up.

It’s time for some real change…. not the theocracy based (no work, no food) attitude of the fake ass evangelicals who are delusional, but real social democratic change.

If you are in this country there should be absolutely no reason for you to be homeless or hungry.

This is the richest country in the world and we are (sadly) a country that lets kids go to bed hungry, not have access to a good basic education, access to free state sponsored healthcare, we incarcerate prisoners at a rate that even the worst dictatorships cannot match (fact: the United States of America has only 5% of the world’s population, yet we incarcerate 25% of the world’s prison inmates [incidentally, non-proportionally minorities]) and have to watch those in congress refuse to lift a finger, to make their needs (and all Americans needs) a priority and actually address our most urgent, basic needs like clean air and water is tantamount to murder.

We actually need to put you people in prison instead……

I am appalled that we can waste trillions on a fighter jet that can’t even fire it’s own weapon (still after several years) and spend more (55% of our national budget) on a military that is so bloated that since 1998 they have over 8 trillion dollars that they cannot account for, and yet we have a non-responsive (bloated) congress (state AND federal), infused with millionaires, who have the ultimate healthcare, pensions that keep them millionaires  for life and no positive/progressive actions are even remotely considered.

Time for the people to take control of the military and forcibly remove all the people in congress that have a track record of voting against any and all of these positive measures.

I realize that what what I’m advocating could be construed as treason, but I respectfully have to say, that that is exactly what our forefathers said should happen in this extreme circumstance.

I give you Donald John Trump who in a matter of days, what he has done, make what Hitler did in the 1930’s pale by comparison.

This is not a time for timid and spineless, bow down to the establishment, cowering, but a time that we are faced with the total destruction of the country (and democracy) we all (even the right wing idiots that have been fooled into supporting this fascist agenda) love.

There may not be another chance…..

There is not only an infestation in our federal government, but is goes all the way down to the local and state level.

You sir are part of the problem…..

Excuse me if I sound disrespectful, but that is my intention, because you and your kind deserve no respect.

Put me on a dissenter list if you want, but that will only give my voice a platform to expose all the corruption that exists and will continue to exist until these kind of actions are taken. (I will print out a copy of this email and register it with an independent organization…)

The answer you gave to my email, that was based in altruism and concern for the welfare of this country is unacceptable, and I will do every thing I can to see to it that this is you last term on the state government teat.
Fascism is not going to happen, sincerely,
