    Spent my last day on the East coast back in DC going to all the ad Senate offices and a few Rs asking them to oppose the rising tide of fascism and protect all Americans.

    Have you called your Rep today about the Stream Protection Rule?

    Obama passed it in December, and it prevents Big Coal from burying streams in waste and destroying groundwater.

    So of course the Republicans want to repeal it.

    The vote is today: call your Rep to tell them to vote *against* the repeal of the Stream Protection Rule.

    Looking at how the ban has radicalized opposition to Trump, only comparison I can think of is the fallout from the 1850 fugitive slave law.

    The GOP are going all out to break every rule and norm in the book.

        the GOP Congress is not interested in anything other than POWER…they are ok with Putin/Trump connection…they are ok with Trump’s defiance of court orders re: the Muslim Ban…they are ok with Trumps bashing and shunning of Intelligence briefs/agencies….

        Their sole mission is to dismantle every progress made since FDR….but i think that even they underestimate what will be left of a country …as this all unravels….

        our saving grace will be the elections…we must improve voter turnout in the midterms…increase our standing in the states…be ready for another way of voter suppression laws….we must organize and help our neighbors acquire whatever they may need in order to vote….we can still vote our way out of this…we had better use it…..like never before…

        • February 1, 2017 at 11:18 am

          That’s it Sheila, And I understand the impulse people have to call out all the unconstitutional things that are happening, but it’s obvious no one on the GOP is the least bit interested in the Constitution and whether or not their actions are unconstitutional. It’s not going to stop them and they certainly aren’t going to suddenly grow a conscience.

          That is absolutely correct. The GOP is all about the retention and exercise of power. Unfortunately enough americans support this situation and has allowed the abuse to perpetuate. With the GOP in control of the presidency, the house and most state legislatures the abuse is going to get worse. Those in power now will not let go easily. Democratic party supporters especially minority supporters will suffer alot more. However I agree the democratic party and supporters need to get out and vote, inspite of the increased vote suppression efforts that will be brought to bear.

    Has anyone else received an email from senatemajority.com with a banner about dems, asking if you voted in the general election? I went to the website, knowing who they are, and of course the homepage opens with a lovely photo of the f*ucking koch bros, so I sent the email to SPAM. And did not respond to the ‘survey’. Wtf.

    Good morning TOD folks. So heartened by the resistance. I can’t believe that GOP are so mean spirited and dishonest but then I have always believed in the humanity of people. Seems they have none. Praying for all those fighting in opposition.

      Unfortunately the people chose this present condition, not because they voted for this guy ( I still believe the voting machines were tampered with ) but when they treated President Obama so unbelievably though all he ever did was fight and fight hard for them. It is a choice thing, I have set before you life and death, blessings and curses. Now choose life, so that you and your children may live. But due to free will, people are free to choose either one and face the consequences of their choice.

        In the middle of Rep Cummings’ statement, a notice came on saying “the media could not be played.” However, I did hear Rep. Bummings say “Trump” NOT president Trump. Way to go.

        I wasn’t sure at first, being concerned about his lack of election experience. But I like what he’s saying and he’s an excellent administrator. Keith Ellison is a lightning rod. And a Bernie supporter. Sorry, they are a part of why we’re in this mess. We need to get the Democratic Party working effectively.

        GOP has lurched to the right through fear of being primaried. We need to do the same thing to wobbly Dems: if you chase the GOP scorpion, he’s going to sting you no matter what. Let these same red state Dems realize that Dems can take their jobs, too, not just GOP.

    Hello TOD.
    Glad to see Amk Posts. I ❤ It!
    Too Bad #Birtherrump is starting off The Black History Month with a slight about himself. Typical.
    Thanks to {{{ ❤ Chips ❤ }}}, TOD is a safe Place.
    Thanks, NW for all you do.
    Congrats to all the Gold ⭐ FURSTs since yesterday.

    Just watched Al Franken – man was on fire at the confirmation hearing!
    I wish he had ended it by saying welcome to New Russia … formerly known as the United States of America.
    It is very disheartening to see the GOP ramming stuff through. I don’t doubt they would consider going ‘nuclear’.

    How do democrats take back the house and senate?
    I don’t know if I dislike the Republicans or the left that didn’t vote or voted 3rd party more ???

      Hold Up!!!! Don’t throw out the dark chocolate. It is a “good chocolate”
      Good luck with the exercise bike effort. I suggest you play your favorite songs as loud as you can, it does work as a motivator 🙂

        I’ll be going back to the dark chocolate but for now I have to forget it exists because it often leads to more chocolate, chocolate on everything, “bad chocolate,” etc. I’m a fanatic! But I do realize the health boosts of dark chocolate, and thank the chocolate gods every day for ’em. 🙂

        Always play loud music when I’m on the bike – it’s a fabulous motivator, I agree!
