How Crony Politics is Destroying the Democratic Party

It was a crisp Los Angeles day in the spring. I had a press pass and a special pass to park in the press lot. Humping my crew and equipment into the Coliseum was still a task that brought cool sweat to my forehead.

Busloads of people were arriving and long throngs of pedestrians were converging and arriving in an expanding sea of people. There were people of all age groups arriving. One could not help but notice the large number of young people; they were excited. T-shirts flew off of the display stands. People clung on to me when they saw my press pass and wanted to share their opinions. I could barely carry my equipment and get signed in.

You are a FOOL if you Don’t Take Donald Trump at His Word!

By Larry Johnson
Clovis, CA

President Elect Donald Trump has told ALL of us exactly what he intends to do in his first 100 days as President. You are a FOOL if you don’t take him at his word and listen VERY carefully when he announces his actions.

There is one serious problem already. He and his staff are considering LIMITING the news media to ONLY those media which are FRIENDLY to his cause! Stock in FOX Fantasy will probably go through the roof! Do you really want a restricted news media in this country with a Donald Trump at the levers of government? Really?

This partial list ARE HIS STATEMENTS AND THOUGHTS, which HE has made publicly over the last 18 months, where he has said that he will:

No Mandate

Over the next few weeks and months you will hear the reptiles crow that they have a  “Mandate of the People” to change the way this country works.

NOT SO

Currently, Hillary Clinton holds the majority of the votes cast! Therefore, there is

NO mandate

BUT, the reptiles will try and sell the nation on this idea. So, baton down the hatches and get ready for a real fight for the heart and soul of this country. The reptiles and their total control of the both houses of congress and the white house will try their best to turn this  country back to the 1950s. They will try to privatize Social Security, repeal The Affordable Health Care Act, extend voter suppression throughout the country, repeal pollution regulation and poison the atmosphere and water.  You can kiss the supreme court balance goodbye for at least two generations – it’s gone so get over it. Citizens United on steroids is coming soon to a billionaire near you, equal pay for equal work is history, minimum wage guidelines – forget it! The big wall between us and  Mexico will be funded by Mexico – yeah, sure! And wars, get ready for many, many more as we continue to be the biggest nasty bully on the block. Tax breaks – forget it, you aren’t rich enough so your tax break will amount to the cost of a few bags of groceries.

To the political barricades  and get your Democratic weapons ready for the onslaught. Elections have consequences and beginning right now we are going to be experiencing the worst of them. Our cause is just and it is for the majority of the people.

The struggle for the 2018 midterm elections begins NOW!

I had a Dream

I had a dream!

dream2I dreamed that Hillary Clinton was elected in the 2016 Presidential Election in a complete and historic avalanche. I dreamed that the American voters threw out 100% (ALL) of the reptiles in the House and the Senate and replaced them with true progressive Democrats. I dreamed that ALL 50 states threw out ALL of their reptile Governors, State Senate members and lower house members and replaced them with progressive Democrats.

I had a dream!

I dreamed that ALL 50 states affirmed the right of ALL Americans to vote in EVERY election and that there was no further requirement for pictures or ID or any other limiting identification. I dreamed that every state adopted an automatic voter registration law which provided an opt out rather than opt in registration system.

I had a dream!

I dreamed that ALL 50 states pledged to end every form of racism, bigotry and exclusion within the United States. I dreamed that ALL Americans were granted the RIGHT to healthcare, education and employment – I had a Dream I say!

I dreamed that police forces throughout the nation eliminated ALL bigotry, racism and exclusion from their ranks. I dreamed that the rule of law became truly blind in its application of the just laws of this nation and that the unjust laws, the laws which divide us and bring us sorrow were completely erased from the public books.

I had a dream!

I dreamed that ALL Americans were allowed to engage in the pursuit of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness without discrimination of any sort. I dreamed that millionaires and billionaires were parted from their money which was redistributed to the nation as a whole via taxes. I dreamed that States Rights did not mean the divide and conquer attitude of the reptiles where local bigotry and racism were allowed to flourish in so called “conservative” cesspools of vapid thought. I dreamed that the decent  conservatives everywhere woke  from their stupor of ignorance and realized the damage done by the wrich who were pulling their strings and making them dance to the tune of wealth which they would never attain.

I had a dream!

I dreamed that all mankind began to coalesce into a world brotherhood of justice, peace and prosperity where NO HUMAN was left behind in our common quest for decency, lively hood and dignity.

I had a Dream, I say! And then I woke up.

Automatic Voter Registration in California

microphone-copyOn Saturday, October 10th, 2015 Governor Jerry Brown signed into law measures which will eventually make voter registration automatic for ALL California citizens who get or renew a California drivers license.

The bill was a priority of newly elected Secretary of State Alex Padilla, who championed its provisions during his election bid.

This makes California the second state to enact such measures much to the chagrin of republican and right wing conservative political punsters who want to restrict voter registration as much as possible. Republicans see widespread voter participation as a challenge to their desire to limit voting to white, property owning males.

Please – No More Dumb Democrats

Never, never vote for a republican – EVER – PERIOD

No more Dumb Democrats PLEASE

In a “Letters to the Editor” in our local newspaper a correspondent made the statement that while he was a Democrat he always voted for the person who he thought would do the best job or was best for the position being voted on weather that person was Democrat or a republican.

I nearly fell out of my chair I was so angry! How, I wondered, how could any thinking, self-respecting, knowledgeable Democrat be so DUMB as to EVER vote for a republican??  Of course, the answer was obvious almost instantly: this was NOT a knowledgeable Democrat and this person considered himself far too smart for his own good. In addition, he displayed one of the great weaknesses of Democrats: he was trying to be fair on all fronts. Won’t work folks and in fact this is why we fail as Democrats to correctly identify the conservative cancer which is infecting our society and threatening to destroy it from within.

I’ll say it again plainly and then explain why:

NEVER, NEVER VOTE FOR A republican – EVER – PERIOD!
