Of course MSNBC would be the one to ask this question.

Hmmmm, when I went to that link there are two choices.
1) Donate
2) Volunteer

If you click on volunteer the next page is your contact info.
If you click on donate there are various amounts you can donate and, get this, it defaults to $27.

The home page is paid for by something called The Action PAC.
The donate page is ‘Paid for by ActBlue’.

There is literally no other information available. It sounds like a grift and I’m kind of surprised Shaun King is involved.

When you go to The Action PAC link this is what you see (along with more solicitations for money):

We’re building an unstoppable political organizing force to combat the rising tide of racism and bigotry in this country.

We will directly support courageous candidates running for office. We will challenge racist, corrupt politicians and their policies. We will craft new laws to radically transform this country from the inside out.

Looks super-sketchy. There is no information at all about what one would be volunteering to do, other than donate money, or volunteer to help the PAC solicit money.

Yep America has the best health care you cant afford on the planet, How many times does this happen across the USA?
Elderly couple found dead from murder-suicide after they couldn’t afford wife’s healthcare: ‘We will be in the front bedroom’

A man in Washington state has killed both himself and his wife after raising fears about struggling to pay medical expenses for her ongoing health conditions. The couple were identified by the Whatcom County Medical Examiner as Brian S Jones, 77, and Patricia Whitney-Jones, 76.Mr Jones, who lived near the city of Ferndale, called emergency services on Wednesday morning and said he was going to shoot himself, according to the Whatcom County Sheriff’s Office. He said he had prepared a note for the sheriff which contained information and instructions. In spite of the operator’s efforts to keep him on the line, Mr Jones is then said to have told the operator, “we will be in the front bedroom”, before disconnecting the call. Police arrived around 15 minutes later and set up a perimeter around the house and attempted to intervene for about an hour with a crisis negotiator and loud hailer. But it was too late, as officials then used a robot-mounted camera to look inside the home and found the bodies of the married couple. Authorities said they believe Mr Jones shot his wife and then himself. They were found lying together. A statement from Whatcom Sheriff Bill Elfo said state officials are investigating the incident which is deemed to be a murder-suicide. According to the sheriff, Mr Jones told the operator: “I am going to shoot myself”. Several notes were left in the home “citing severe ongoing medical problems with the wife and expressing concerns that the couple did not have sufficient resources to pay for medical care”, according to the sheriff’s statement. “It is very tragic that one of our senior citizens would find himself in such desperate circumstances where he felt murder and suicide were the only option. Help is always available with a call to 911,”

WI61, Sure they could call 911 but they will have to pay for it and calling 911 to go to the emergency is very expensive. M4A is desperately needed.

Anyone who is still sporting a donut in their twitter handle is not to be taken seriously. But is it a parody account? I mean, the account’s name is @StillShilling after all.

humphrey

The tweet that I linked to was the Anti Establishment one.

magsview

Yes, I was just pointing out that the tweet Anti Establishment replied to looked like a parody account. If it’s NOT a parody account it’s pretty wild that it’s called @StillShilling.

Hey mags did you see my response for H&I yesterday?

magsview

No, H&I? I’ll go try to find it. Thanks!

geez, never thought she’d support Kamala. what happened to GND?

polarbear4

ok.
“WASHINGTON — Senator Kamala Harris of California and Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez of New York on Monday will introduce legislation aimed at ensuring that climate change plans benefit low-income communities. The congresswomen described the measure as a key element of the Democrats’ Green New Deal.”

But why give this to Kamala?

Why not give it to people who have actually fought for the poor?

With regards to the comment yesterday about Agatha Bacelar challenging Nancy Pelosi.

“She helped start one of this country’s first collegiate competitive jump rope teams, competed nationally, and was featured in a nationally aired Red Bull video with fellow Double Dutch jumpers.”

I guess that puts her ahead of Shahid Buttar who has done this.
