Monday Evening Mix of Women's Health and more--Part II

 Sunday's Outlook section of the Washington Post will be dubbed: "The Polarization Issue"
...we have no choice but to acknowledge that the core of the problem lies with the Republican Party.
The GOP has become an insurgent outlier in American politics. It is ideologically extreme; scornful of compromise; unmoved by conventional understanding of facts, evidence and science; and dismissive of the legitimacy of its political opposition.    Read more

 ALRIGHT! Now the Washington Post Agrees with this blog--ALRIGHT!!!

 The following is from a speech given by Dr. Jennefer Russo at the United Against the War on Women Rally in Harrisburg, PA on April 28, 2012. 
My name is Dr. Jennefer Russo. I am a Fellow with Physicians for Reproductive Choice and Health. I am an obstetrician/gynecologist in Pittsburgh. My patients come to me for a variety of different medical needs, including contraception, pap smears, ovarian cysts, sexually transmitted diseases, and pregnancy. Some women choose to continue pregnancies and some don’t. Either way, I take care of them.    Read more

And Of Course, the Republican Party still denies its War on Women's Rights, especially when it comes to Health Care.
The disproportionate and unfair tax rate disparity between the rich and poor is going to be a major hot-button issue this election, particularly when Romney's meager 13% tax rate is even lower than Obama's (because he's richer). Over the past year, a number of super-rich progressives led by Warren Buffett have come forth asking the federal government to tax them more, noting that the discrepancy is making the country worse for everyone. The latest to join the chorus? Best-selling novelist Stephen King, who just penned a plea for the Daily Beast called, "Tax Me, For Fuck's Sake!" Proletariat language: that's partly why we love him. King writes:    Read more
 Thank You, Mr. Stephen King for becoming a voice of reason. After all, the Middle Class is the True Foundation of Society--Look-Look-Look at all the third world countries--they are in the economic mess that they are in because they do not have a Middle Class Structure--Big Business and the Republican Party need to wake up and smell the coffee, by destroying the Middle Class---they are self destructing and IF they succeed they will succeed in DE-evolving the United States into a Third World Economy.


Fall 2011 was pretty exciting, wasn’t it?  Protesters in Egypt and Tunisia had just won a non-violent revolution.  Over 1200 Americans took part in the biggest act of civil disobedience in the history of environmentalism and it looked like they had won.  Occupy Wall Street appeared, seemingly out of nowhere, and became a national phenomenon calling the nation’s attention to the interrelated crises of political cronyism and deep structural inequity threatening our democracy. For a second it felt like maybe the “post-hope” era was coming to an end. Maybe we’d all finally get off the internet and start directly confronting those things we’d been waiting for President Obama to fix for us since January 2009.  Read more
This is indeed something to think about. Short notice or not short notice, maybe there might be a way for me to be involved with an activity, after all, even though I work tonight and tomorrow night.

Another Monday Morning Mix of Environment, Jobs and Labor's Rights

today's action Sign TakePart's Water Bill of Rights!

Every human being should have access to drinking water that is clean and safe. In the United States, chemical pollutants, aging infrastructure, and procedural inefficiencies are culminating in a water crisis of epic proportions.

Our friends at TakePart believe that local, state, and federal governments should be working harder to properly manage our water.

For today's Daily Action, sign the Water Bill of Rights, brought to you by TakePart and Last Call at the Oasis—a new documentary that shatters myths behind the world's most precious resource.

Ensure a better tomorrow; add your voice to this important national conversation.-->

Humans will always work. But that whole employee-employer thing is optional. It's time to start looking for another model.

The answer is YES for those who want or need to be their own boss. After all, as sure as leaders need followers--followers also need leaders.

Organizers and activists have planned direct actions and mass rallies, marches and blockades, as well as mutual aid, concerts, and more to include many people as possible. READ MORE

True confession time--I have never taken part in any May Day Activity--Not that I have anything against it per say--It is just that I have always been and continue to be busy with other things such as working. This year is no exception--yes, I do work tomorrow; in fact I go in a bit early--two hours early--7 p.m. to 11 p.m. or rather when the job is finished which takes an extra 15-30 min sometimes more, but I try to keep my over-time to a min. After all, I would rather go home as close to  the scheduled time as possible, so that I can get some rest. 
Who knows maybe one day I will and get to record it here for prosperity--Who Knows???

In addition, Let All Us Americans Truly Support Our Troops By (and Any One Else Who Can sign-Please, at least read and consider, since Not All Petitions are Inter-National-IF POSSIBLE-Please Sign)-->

Bill of Rights for Bereaved Military Families

Bill of Rights for Bereaved Military Families

Statistics show 1 in 4 Military Deaths are Non-Combat Related; an unacceptable number for Military Families and for our Country’s National Security and Defense.

Each month the Department of Defense releases historically high suicide statistics. However, upon closer examination anyone can see it is releasing numbers based on assumptions and incomplete death investigations.

Although the Cause and Manner of these Military Non-Combat Deaths may differ, the similarity of inadequate Military Death Investigations and the disrespect for the Military Deceased and Bereaved Military Families is consistent.

Inadequate Military Death Investigations and Human Rights Violations involving Death Investigations of U.S Military Deceased have been documented for decades. The resulting damage from these flawed investigations include military families being given incorrect information relating to their loved ones death; up to and including an incorrect official cause of death. . . . .
