Happy 4th! Hope you all enjoy it. While I think its important to take moments to spend with family/friends and celebrate the better aspects of the ‘holiday’ Its also important to remember where we’ve failed to live up to the ideals we claim to aspire to.

I had the same thought today, Had my boys over for the traditional cook out, played some lawn games even though it was hot and humid here in WI today. Politics didn’t come up as a topic today but my mind wanderd towards the thought of what kind of country are we becoming ? what will it look like in 10,20 years? I wondered about the problems that my kids will have to deal as a result of the Trumpcorp presidency. To be honest its the first 4th of July I didn’t have a positive outlook like usual.

Happy Fourth of July! The Story of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez Reveals the Power of Good News About “Democratic Renewal”

Politics isn’t necessarily an open sewer. The idea of a common good seems like an illusory sham until the moment enough of us believe in it simultaneously.

I’m doubtful of this happening but it would be great if it occurs.

Move over, House Freedom Caucus. Progressive lawmakers are poised to play a pivotal role in the next Congress if Democrats take back the House in November.

That’s because a dozen members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) are in line to chair congressional committees, which would give the left-leaning group immense power to influence the chamber’s legislative agenda and strengthen their hand as chief antagonists to President Trump.

The stunning primary victory of self-described democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) has also opened up a coveted spot at the leadership table, bolstering the argument that progressives should have more representation in the party’s top ranks.

A fine example of sour grapes.

Progressives poised to shape agenda if Dems take back House

Move over, House Freedom Caucus. Progressive lawmakers are poised to play a pivotal role in the next Congress if Democrats take back the House in November.

That’s because a dozen members of the Congressional Progressive Caucus (CPC) are in line to chair congressional committees, which would give the left-leaning group immense power to influence the chamber’s legislative agenda and strengthen their hand as chief antagonists to President Trump.

The stunning primary victory of self-described democratic socialist Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez over Rep. Joe Crowley (D-N.Y.) has also opened up a coveted spot at the leadership table, bolstering the argument that progressives should have more representation in the party’s top ranks.

Some congressional observers are predicting that congressional progressives could emerge as the liberal equivalent of the House Freedom Caucus, a group that has been highly effectively at pushing the GOP further to the right by banding together as a conservative voting bloc.

“The Freedom Caucus has been a big player in the House because of the big Republican advances in 2010,” said Brad Bannon, a Democratic strategist. “I think that’s a good analogy for what will happen with the Democratic members.”

I do believe there are a large number of people willing to sacrifice the house just so this does not happen

I guess that it is worth repeating. LOL

Oops, Im full of repeats today it seems :D.

“What to the American Slave Is Your 4th of July?”: James Earl Jones Reads Frederick Douglass’s Historic Speech

n a Fourth of July holiday special, we begin with the words of Frederick Douglass. Born into slavery around 1818, Douglass became a key leader of the abolitionist movement. On July 5, 1852, in Rochester, New York, he gave one of his most famous speeches, “The Meaning of July Fourth for the Negro.” He was addressing the Rochester Ladies Antislavery Society. This is actor James Earl Jones reading the speech during a performance of historian Howard Zinn’s acclaimed book, “Voices of a People’s History of the United States.”

The Hilbots just can’t get over it.

They never will, They will blame Bernie until hell freezes over.

They have a problem in that all they do is rail on about how bad Trump is and to admit she just lost, is to admit she is no better than trump, which though true to many can never be true to them.

humphrey

I wonder if Trump will like the front page of the New York Daily News?
