D day

On June 6, 1944, 160,000 Allied troops stormed the heavily-fortified coastline of Normandy, France, to fight Nazi Germany.

Yesterday German officials are demanding Angela Merkel expel the US ambassador to Germany after the American official said he was working to “strengthen” right-wing ( natzi, islamaphobes) political movements in Europe.Richard Grenell, trump appointee and card-carrying Republican, said in a Breitbart interview “said he was working to “strengthen” right-wing political movements in Europe.” That same far right with nationalist and fascist movements growing in the country. A group of neo-Nazis even hosted a massive birthday celebration for Adolf Hitler in eastern Germany last April.

Mr Grenell on social media: “I stand by my comments that we are experiencing an awakening from the silent majority – those who reject the elites & their bubble. Led by Trump.”

Yep, this trump diplomat openly said he wants to support natzis in Europe.

On June 6, 1944, 160,000 Allied troops stormed the heavily-fortified coastline of Normandy, France, to fight Nazi Germany. More than 10,000 Allied forces were killed or wounded on those beaches, but the invasion, known as Operation Overlord, or #DDay, helped turn the tide of World War II. Now, 74 years later, we remember the sacrifices and heroism that led to the liberation of Europe. #DDay74 READ MORE: https://go.usa.gov/xQ7Vm

Looks like MIchigan Republicans have found a devious likely loophole for legalized lynching of Black working poor.

Looks like MIchigan Republicans have found a devious likely loophole for legalized lynching of Black working poor.

“Because although HB 897 threatens to end Medicaid benefits for hundreds of thousands living elsewhere in the state, it includes exemptions for people who live in counties with an unemployment rate of more than 8.5%, “

That exempts rural , Mostly White residents living up North from the medicare work requirements, leaving urban, predominantly Black residents of high unemployment cities in more prosperous counties, like Flint and Detroit, swinging in the wind.

“The fact is, if SB 897 causes 20% of Medicaid recipients to lose their benefits as the bill’s sponsor, Sen. Mike Shirkey (R-Clark Lake) projects, some of them will die. “

Plus, the plan COSTS the state millions, not saving a single penny. Doesn’t save the state a dime. “The bill’s Senate sponsors admit that this proposal isn’t about saving money; in fact, it’ll cost about $30 million a year to administer the program.”

Vitriolic Madam Vitter

“Senator, I don’t mean to be coy,” Vitter responded, “but I think I get into a difficult area when I start commenting on Supreme Court decisions, which are correctly decided and which I may disagree with.”

That’s the Brown v Board of Education ruling concerning segregation. The Bitch is disagreeing with desegregation. Fucked again by our trump voting neighbors.

Medicair work requirements are just another way to punish the poor

Medicaid is not something that can be abused by patients, it is abused by providers, punish them, Not people who rely on it to stay alive. Medicaid does not cover necessary things. we should make family planning available to women on Medicare, pregnancies and births are among the most costly things covered. If women are able to control when they have children, space out pregnancies for healthier outcomes, Medicaid saves money. if we expanded dental clinics that cover Medicaid, we know that dental health is directly tied to heart health and high blood pressure, could return to the workforce. These things would save money and actually keep people working.

Killer Whale, Granny passes, 2017

such a heart rending story. Like the other giant animals of this planet, they are on the brink of extinction. We have, maybe, 10 year where we have a chance to turn the decline in numbers around. We collected an entire generation of killer whales for our “entertainment” in sea parks. Whales that should be the primary leaders and those that should be raising babies. With the new administration seemingly duing it’s damndest to kill off it’s most impoverished constiuants, I am sure our childeren will pass judgment on us harshly for the lack of stewardship of these mighty ocean leviathons.
