A new report finds that the current House of Representatives is the most anti-environmental in US history, having voted 247 times to undermine environmental and health protection in the last 18 months. Nearly one in five of the 1,100 legislative roll call votes so far this Congress – 19% – were votes to undermine environmental protection. While this is a record, it is by no means a new trend that the Republicans in the House vote consistently against environmental protection.I Dare--I Double Dare--Anyone and Everyone who claims to be a Loyal American to Read the evidence to Prove me wrong. After all, It is the Stand of this Blog, that we cannot nor should not sacrifice our environment, because we cannot do so without also sacrificing America and ourselves or our future. Is not all the debris that are washing to American and Canadian shores from the Japanese Mega-Disaster enough evidence of how we all are interconnected, not only economically, but most especially environmentally.
The report, prepared by the Democratic staff of the Energy and Commerce Committee, also found that the oil and gas industry has been the largest beneficiary of the anti-environment House votes. The House has voted 109 times on legislation that would enrich the oil and gas industry, including 45 votes to weaken environmental, public health, and safety requirements applicable to the oil industry, 38 votes to prevent deployment of clean energy alternatives, and 12 votes to expedite review of the Keystone XL pipeline.
“House Republicans are putting the interests of oil companies and other big polluters over the health and safety of Americans and their families,” said Rep. Henry Waxman (D-CA), Energy and Commerce Committee Ranking Member. “They have voted to reverse decades of efforts to ensure that families have clean air to breath and clean water to drink. They have voted to deny the science of climate change, defund investments in clean energy, and open vast areas to new oil drilling. The assault on the environment has been relentless and reckless and would make our country more polluted and less productive.”
If this is True-Then Every Representative who cannot nor will not protect our Environment=our lives=our future; should be voted out of office. We need to wake up and smell the coffee, corporate greed is short term gain at a long term price and long term cost.
|Pregnant and Parenting Students Need a Champion|
The Pregnant and Parenting Students Access to Education Act is already pending in the House (H.R. 2617), but we need a Senator to step up to the plate and introduce it in the Senate. Will one of your Senators be the champion we are looking for?
The Pregnant and Parenting Students Access to Education Act (PPSAE) would provide a framework and resources to states and school districts to ensure that pregnant and parenting students have equal access to educational opportunities. It would enable states to create a plan for the education of pregnant and parenting students, provide professional development and technical assistance to school districts, coordinate services with other state agencies, and disseminate information, among other activities.
For today's Daily Action, ask each of your Senators to become a lead sponsor of the Pregnant and Parenting Students Access to Education Act. Pregnant and parenting students have a lot on the line -- they need to know our leaders support them.
After all, the bottom line is the more we decrease the demand for abortions, the fewer the abortions and the less it matter whether or not it is legal or not--BUT IF WE MAKE BELIEVE THAT WE CAN END IT SIMPLY BY OUT-LAWING IT--THEN WE SET THE STAGE FOR ILLEGAL ABORTIONS TO MAKE A COME BACK--WHERE NEITHER THE MOTHER OR CHILD COME OUT ALIVE--THIS JUDGMENT THE RELIGIOUS RIGHT MAY FIND FITTING--BUT THIS BLOGGER IS CALLING FOR COMPASSION FOR THE MOTHER'S ALSO--NOT JUST JUDGMENT AND CONDEMNATION. AFTER ALL, THE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST SHOULD BE MORE ABOUT COMPASSION AND LESS ABOUT CONDEMNATION.
After all, there is too much Evil to fight Against-->
Arizona Backs Off Birtherism, Kinda Sorta
Arizona Threatens To Keep President Obama Off Nov. Ballot
AFTER ALL, ALL THE AMERICAN HISTORY THAT I AM AND HAVE STUDIED HAS ALWAYS BEEN ABOUT HOW FEW ELIGIBLE AMERICAN VOTERS HAVE ACTUALLY VOTED--NEVER--NEVER ABOUT HOW MANY VOTERS HAVE VOTED MORE THAN ONCE--IF--IF I AM WRONG--I DARE--I DOUBLE DARE ANYONE AND EVERYONE TO PROVE ME WRONG.
DOES THIS NOT PROVE THE FACT THAT THE REPUBLICAN PARTY HAS ACTUALLY AND FACTUALLY AND TRUTHFULLY BEEN TAKEN OVER BY LIARS, CHEATS AND THIEVES AND GREED AND CORRUPTION(OTHER WISE KNOWN AS THE GROUP OF HATERS WHO CALL THEMSELVES-THE TEA PARTY MOVEMENT)--THE SILENCE HAS BECOME DEAFENING--THIS IS WHY THIS INDEPENDENT IS FIGHTING MAD TO SAVE HER COUNTRY AND HER CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST FROM THE CORRUPTION THAT HAS TAKEN ROOT IN THE 'RELIGIOUS RIGHT' AND THE 'REPUBLICAN PARTY'--WE MUST FIGHT AS IF THE FATE OF THE WORLD IS AT STAKE--BECAUSE THIS TIME--IT IS.
IF THERE IS SOMEONE WHO CAN ACTUALLY AND FACTUALLY PROVE ME WRONG--I DARE THEM- I DOUBLE DARE THEM--I CHALLENGE ANY ONE WHO CALLS THEMSELVES A PATRIOTIC AMERICAN; IF THEY REALLY ARE A PATRIOTIC AMERICAN TO EITHER PROVE ME WRONG OR TO VOTE DEMOCRAT WITH ME--IF SOMEONE CAN PROVE ME WRONG THEN I WILL NOT ONLY POST IT HERE-I WILL RAISE AND DONATE AS MUCH MONEY AS YOU ASK FOR-FOR ANY AND EVERY CANDIDATE THAT YOU CHOOSE. I GUARANTEE IT.
p.s.--> By The Way, I would also like to share this e-mail that I received-->
Thank you for signing our petition calling on Josh Mandel to come clean about the campaign contributions that sparked an FBI investigation.
You can count on us to hold his feet to the fire as the campaign continues.
For almost two decades, Sherrod Brown has quite literally led the fight for working families, and his re-election is a top priority for us at Workers' Voice.
But while Josh Mandel has received record amounts of support from corporate interests (you've probably seen the ads), we're going to focus on running a solid ground game in support of Sherrod.
Let us know how you're interested in getting involved at the link below:
You may not know much about Workers' Voice organizing theory, so allow me a quick moment to explain...
By taking action with us (making calls, attending canvasses, getting involved online), you'll earn the ability to direct our spending.
For example, make x-number of phone calls for Sherrod Brown, and you'll earn y-dollars to spend on a State Senate candidate you like, in the way you'd like it spent.
But the first step is to let us know how you're interested in helping Sherrod's campaign for Senate. You can do that here:
Our Josh Mandel Witness online ads were a huge success. They generated earned media all across the state, and almost every article explained the investigation into his campaign finances.
That was just the start.
