Ole Olson56,248It has come to light that Google has started funding and supporting some of the most vile right wing extremist collectives and corporate front groups in America. Join us by changing your avatar and boycotting every single Google service for one day in protest.  *On Wednesday, December 11th make a serious attempt to not use anything Google.* No Google Searches. No Google+. No gmail. No Youtube. No Google Calendar. No Blogger. No Google Maps. No Google Photos. No Google translate. No Google reverse image search. No Google Play. No Google Drive. No Google Books. No Google Shopping. Nothing.  (Android is immune since it is Open Source).  If nothing else, just think of this as a challenge to see if you are able to spend a day on the internet without using a single Google product or service or just take the day off and enjoy the real world for a change.  _Google, many of us are your most loyal users, and we love the technical direction everything is heading by rolling all services into Google+_ but it must be understood in no uncertain terms that we vehemently disagree with your decision to start to fund proto-fascist, right wing extremist, anti-environmental, anti-worker, and anti-science shock fronts like: •ALEC (American Legislative Exchange Council) •American Conservative Union •Americans for Tax Reform •CATO Institute •Federalist Society •George Mason University Law School Law and Economics Center •Heritage Action •Mercatus Center •National Taxpayers Union •R Street Institute •Texas Public Policy Foundation ________________________________________________ *More information:* Don’t Be Evil?

Jason T. Wiser22,252*How do I monetize my social media activity?*  See full notes and podcast here! http://jtw.bz/CDsocial I hear this question every day. "I have a social media following but I'm not really sure how to convert my contacts into clients? What am I doing wrong?" Too often small business owners either get frustrated because everyone tells them they _have to_ be on social media. So they get started, get some followers, and get stuck either *finding potential clients* , stuck *spending too much time* on social media, or stuck trying to *get their connections to convert.* This week I'm talking with one of social media's biggest names +Christine DeGraff  who is literally *everywhere*. She has massive followings, huge communities, and great reach. Christine will share with us: How did she get started? How does she monetize her communities?  Where does she need to improve?

Before one vote has been cast, Hillary already has 1/5th of the delegates for nomination. That’s reeks like a shady backroom deal

Don’t get me wrong, I am proud to be a member of the Democratic Party. I truly believe we are the party of the people, and that only together can we take on the powerful cabal of establishment elites. But there is a huge cognitive disconnect here between those with the most power in the party and what the base. By securing pledges of enough superdelegates that one candidate already is a fifth of the way to the nomination this early, it just looks and feels like the worst form of insider backroom deals. http://www.msnbc.com/all-in/watch/does-clinton-have-the-nomination-in-the-bag--515460163750

Dems will NOT retain the White House unless we run a campaign with momentum that produces a huge voter turnout #FeelTheBern  
A special message to anyone fearful who wants to eek out a bare bones defensive win with a moderate candidate. We have a real opportunity here to generate the wave election we need to not only retain the presidency, but to retake the Senate AND gerrymandered House, and finally enact the caliber or reforms out nation so desperately needs. But only if we back the right horse and make our vision clear. We need to consolidate our support behind +Bernie Sanders.

#Android   #Politics   #FeelTheBern  

Hey, everyone! We want to call to attention a project that some others have been working on for the past three months: the Bernie App! (for Android; iOS version coming soon). The goal of this application is to bring you closer to Bernie Sanders' campaign with the touch of a button! This application will keep you informed of nearby events, news updates from the campaign itself, and incorporate some of the amazing websites and applications that other grassroots contributors have built for free, to further the campaign's efforts. Download it right away!

We think this project brings to light what this campaign truly represents: a movement built on the backs of hard working volunteers committed to starting a political revolution. Every single one of these resources has been created from donated labor; we are all just regular people who are determined to see The United States of America change in a positive way. Just like the volunteers who are dedicating their free time to the development of our website, so too are many others dedicating their time to similar, and equally important, projects like the Bernie App.

During this grassroots movement, it is our collective responsibility to encourage each other to keep ourselves going. We at FeelTheBern.org are ready to support others in their pursuits so that they may increase their political efficacy in their local and state communities, and across the nation, too! If you haven't already, make sure to check out the rest of the resources that we have advertised on our Google+ Page and on the Grassroots Resources page of our website!

21 Quotes From Pope Francis' Encyclical Worth Noting
This papal encyclical by Pope Francis addresses the climate crisis in the context of the overall environmental crisis as well as the crisis of economic inequality and poverty worldwide. To Pope Francis, “We are faced not with two separate crises, one environmental and the other social, but rather with one complex crisis, which is both social and environmental. Strategies for a solution demand an integrated approach to combating poverty, restoring dignity to the excluded and at the same time protecting nature.”

I'm not a religious man, but I do really like this new Pope

I don't usually trust politicians, but when I do, it's @BernieSanders. Stay informed my friends.
It's pretty refreshing to have a political leader with a consistent 30 year track record of fighting for the exact same things. Far too many change their positions depending on what the hot issue of the day focus groups tell them to support.

“Is this a joke?”: Reporters laugh in the face of conservative provocateur James O’Keefe at his own press conference
The poor reporters that had to endure this deserve the Medal of Bravery for having to consume so much BS

James O'keefe is a coward and a liar. 

quote: Professional troll James O’Keefe has been teasing journalists for weeks about an undercover operation that could take down Hillary Clinton — I’ve received four “email blasts” from O’Keefe’s Project Veritas about these videos in the past 48 hours alone — so I was suprised to learn that the “trickle-down corruption” he’d come to expose amounted to a Project Veritas operative buying a few Hillary-themed t-shirts for a Canadian.
You read that right — O’Keefe’s own operative captured herself, on camera, illegally purchasing the shirts on behalf of a Canadian and this, O’Keefe claimed, demonstrates the criminal mendacity of the Clinton campaign.___“Is this a joke?”: Reporters laugh in the face of conservative provocateur James O’Keefe at his own press conference

Bigotry wrapped in holy texts is still bigotry, even if this homophobic clerk was not a hypocrite

The funny thing about that clerk that refuses to grant LGBT people their human and constitutional rights, she has been divorced... 3 times (4 if you include her annulled marriage at the age of 16). Even if she hadn't, there are so many things banned by various holy books (in most versions of the Bible for instance, eating shellfish is capital offense, as is shaving your beard, wearing cloth woven from 2 or more materials, etc.) that it is an extremely flimsy excuse to justify hatred and denial of rights.

Why nurses are endorsing Bernie Sanders for President

Caring, compassion, and community. These are the values at the heart of registered nursing. This is true at the bedside, as nurses advocate for patients and families—and also beyond the walls of the hospital, as RNs call for environmental, racial, and economic justice in the name of public health. National Nurses United, which represents some 190,000 nurses nationwide, seeks to uphold that positive vision for the health of this country by endorsing Senator Bernie Sanders for president.

More and more unions are coming out to support +Bernie Sanders, the strongest champion of working folks and their RIGHT to organize to bargain together.

Before one vote has been cast, Hillary already has 1/5th of the delegates for nomination. That’s reeks like a shady backroom deal

Don’t get me wrong, I am proud to be a member of the Democratic Party. I truly believe we are the party of the people, and that only together can we take on the powerful cabal of establishment elites. But there is a huge cognitive disconnect here between those with the most power in the party and what the base. By securing pledges of enough superdelegates that one candidate already is a fifth of the way to the nomination this early, it just looks and feels like the worst form of insider backroom deals. http://www.msnbc.com/all-in/watch/does-clinton-have-the-nomination-in-the-bag--515460163750

Note that I have said from the start that like Bernie, I like Hillary and will support her if she ends up winning the nomination, but every new insider stunt like this makes me a little less enthusiastic about that possibility. It also makes me want to work all that much harder to make sure that Bernie Sanders ultimately wins the Democratic Party nomination to be the next President of the United States.

The more I think about how crooked denying Dem debates is, the madder I get. #weNeedDebate

The problem is that only having 4 debates before the first primary and pushing them back so late (mid Oct is the first), it gives Hillary a HUGE advantage by denying coverage to others. Look at how Ben Carson went from "token black guy" to polling 2nd after the GOP debate for example. DWS has to go, and we need debates NOW.

You HAVE to watch this: Martin O'Malley harshly scolds DNC leader because #WeNeedDebate

There were 10 debates by this time in 2007 (and 27 debates in total without exclusivity clauses), but this year, corrupt party insiders are rigging the game by pushing back debates until the middle of October, then only having 4 before the first primary. This is deliberately designed to help Hillary Clinton by denying every other candidate a stage where they can get press.

Debates matter. After the GOP debate, Ben Carson shot up to 2nd place, Carly *Fiorina* went from the junior league to 7th place, Rubio went up to 5th, Kasich (who barely "qualified") went to 8th. You know who went down? The establishment candidates Jeb Bush and Scott Walker.

Debbie *Wasserman Schultz was one of Clinton's national campaign co-chairs in 2008, and knows that by allowing a conversation to happen, Martin O'Malley and Bernie Sanders will get much more support and Hillary will sag in the polls. The worst part is that DWS is abusing her authority as DNC Chair by refusing to even reconsider additional debates that start earlier. The first Dem debate is even AFTER the registration deadline in New York state, meaning that if +Martin O'Malley or +Bernie Sanders do really well, the throngs of excited new or independent voters *will not be able to register as Democrats to vote in the primary!

This is crooked. This is corrupt. This is wrong. And I say this as a proud Democrat who is ashamed of some of his parties leaders right now.

Does the Bernie phenomenon signify that America is waking up?
I sure hope so.

#FeelTheBern  

Does the Bernie phenomenon signify that America is waking up?
“It is not about me, it’s you who decides the future of this country”
Because in the end Bernie is not Bernie; he is an idea whose time has come.
Sanders’ political position resonates with millions of Americans who want to see real change. Bernie somehow became a catalyst for real change by the masses. He is pushing the buttons of Americans who are sick of being robbed and swindled by a perverse system that increasingly transfers money to the top. This is why the word socialism became comparatively benign. It sure seems irrelevant when we compare it to the absurdity that political, social, and economic life in America has become:
The middle class is being squeezed; wealthy corporations pay no taxes and are hiding our money in a fiscal oasis somewhere in the world; students are not able to pay their loans because they can’t find jobs; hospitals receive “non-profit” status but are for-profit don't pay taxes and even receive money back from me and you while healthcare is out of reach for most Americans. Obamacare, which was supposed to solve this problem, is now close to a insurance scam helping to transfer more money to the top further weakening health care as a whole.
The list goes on and on. But this post is not about making a list of problems we already know from our everyday lives. This post is about seizing an opportunity.
While the endless partisan discussions circle around egotistical disputes between Republicans and Democrats, our country is going to hell in a hand basket. People are beyond angry at the stagnant political status quo with seemingly no end. But Sanders is running on the Democratic ticket because we all know in this country there are only two parties that have clout. It’s either one or the other, and he’s certainly not for the other.
While all of this is happening, our government is anemic and has no muscle power or political will to make real changes. Americans see that in every election, no matter what the campaign promises are, everything ends up being more of the same: — money leaving the middle class into the pockets of billionaires. So why could Sanders be different?
It’s simply because he is different. Sanders have a fresh and revolutionary approach to the presidency: he shows an attitude that says “it’s not about me, it’s about you”. He doesn’t use the wishy-washy tactics so many politicians are fond of. They are so afraid to say something that will compromise their path to victory that they end up vacillating between whatever new issues benefit them. Sanders on the other hand is crystal clear about his positions and doesn’t use mud-slinging techniques either. This in turn communicates a clear and fresh message to the American public: there is an authentic and upright presidential candidate.

Distribution of Annual Household Income in the United States via http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Distribution_of_Annual_Household_Income_in_the_United_States.png

Cheap Labor Conservatives don't want you to know this, but deregulated, corporate capitalism has failed America. It has unleashed class warfare on the poor and middle class in a race to the bottom, and 99% of the new income since the Great Recession was unleashed has gone to the richest 1%. The median individual income in the US is only a mere $27,000.

The good paying jobs with decent benefits just don't really exist anymore in our country. We are expected to directly compete with virtual slave labor markets (pay a dollar an hour) in countries that have no building codes (collapsed or combustible factories) and no environment regulations (CO2 pollution, toxic waste dumping, etc.).

The good paying jobs with decent benefits just don't really exist anymore in our country. We are expected to directly compete with virtual slave labor markets (pay a dollar an hour) in countries that have no building codes (collapsed or combustible factories) and no environment regulations (CO2 pollution, toxic waste dumping, etc.). It doesn't matter how determined or talented or hard working you are, those jobs are gone thanks to capitalism. The only thing that matters to capitalism is profits that go straight to the rich to hide in overseas tax shelters.

That face when you get assaulted by conservative science denying ignorance
Neil DeGrasse Tyson rocks. Science is real, whether or not climate deniers choose to accept it. It is not a matter of opinion, it is a fact. Verifiable, repeatable, testable evidence is truth.

Alan Grayson gives one of his most fiery interviews ever with Chris Hayes. Forward to 1:36 to skip the intro
Alan Grayson is running for the US Senate in Florida, and the insider candidate is another DLC-style DINO who is more of a conservative Republican than Democrat. The people of America will judge us based on whether we Democrats are trying to run corporatist shills of the oligarchy or whether we run bold progressives who will actually stand up and fight for real reform. +Alan Grayson is one of the strongest voices for the American people, and isn't afraid to take the fight to conservatives who want to strangle freedom, impose a sharia-style theocracy, and turn the American Dream into a nightmare. If you love this country, stand up with Alan Grayson to fight back!

HT +All In with Chris Hayes

President Jimmy Carter puts religious conservative homophobes in their place
and remember that bigotry wrapped in prayer is still bigotry. NONE of the hate mongers that use their holy book to condemn people born gay follow all of their books lessons. For instance, christian conservatives love war, love the death penalty, idolize greed, covet other people's wealth, shave their beards, eat shellfish, wear fabric woven or more than one material, etc.

Tell Congress: Oppose the Chuck Schumer-Portman corporate tax giveaway
As a proud Democrat, I have to admit it is corporate shills like +Senator Charles E Schumer that help feed the illusion that both parties are the same. We have a moral and ethical responsibility to police our own party, and that means fighting back against Chuck Schumer. We cannot allow under any circumstances for him to become the next Dem Leader after Harry Reid retires.

New York Democrats also MUST primary this tool of Wall Street oligarchs. You need to field a bold progressive candidate who will actually stand up for the people instead the rich and powerful. And also note that in order to vote in the NY Primary, people must be registered to vote as a Democrat by October 9th!

Tell Congress: Oppose the Schumer-Portman corporate tax giveaway.

Fresh off of advocating for war with Iran, Democratic Sen. Chuck Schumer is teaming up with Republican Rob Portman to give a massive handout to multinational corporations.

Multinational corporations owe nearly $770 billion in taxes on nearly $2.2 trillion that they have been hiding offshore. Sens. Schumer and Portman have a proposal to let companies bring back that money at a much lower tax rate – and then, going even further by lowering the tax rate on all future income earned overseas.

As a Democrat joining with Republicans to promote this proposal Sen. Schumer is undercutting Democratic Leader Harry Reid on the eve of negotiations to avert a government shutdown. While the current leader of Senate Democrats has gone on the record demanding the super-rich pay their fair share to keep the government running, the leader-in-waiting has sided with multinational corporations at the expense of domestic companies and everyday Americans, even earning praise from the likes of Rep. Paul Ryan.3,4

Even if the proposal does not become part of a highway bill deal, it will be dredged up again in future negotiations unless we raise such an outcry right now that we kill it for good.___Tell Congress: Oppose the Chuck Schumer-Portman corporate tax giveaway

There was free food and drinks at a rooftop party for the #DNC  last night.
This was early on, but it was wall to wall, or rather railing to railing about an hour after this at sunset and later. My friend (in the white shirt at the bar) busted a couple libertarians who snuck in for the free food and drinks (you know, because they clearly aren't parasites and love capitalism so much).

Side note- I used to work as a janitor in that tall building in the background. I was the only European-American that worked there, which was an excellent experience for someone who came from the 3rd whitest county in America. The job wasn't too bad either thanks to it being unionized (can't recall which one).

Bernie Sanders had a packed room for a pre-DNC speech to supporters
There were another 50+ outside in the hall. I got to shake Bernies hand, but nobody got a photo of it. Bernie will be addressing the full DNC chamber at 1:50pm Central Time

This Mexican brother took his life in his hands to make this valiant protest. Lucky for him the white supremacist bullies are all gasbags but I know this brother did not know that when he started his dance. ___Hilarious! Latino fearlessly taunts anti-immigration protesters
