Ole Olson54,998It 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. Wiser21,889*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?

They are tripping all over themselves to try to defund the organization, even though not one single penny of federal money ever goes to a single abortion, even when a women's life might be in danger or if she was raped.

Bernie explains Greek Debt: caused by tax cuts for rich (not spending), poor pay price with Austerity 
Governments all over the western world have been borrowing money from banking cartels to fund tax cuts for the rich. Then when the collector comes they make the poor pay for it by higher fees, savage cuts to social services, and privatization/profitizing public programs, causing people to pay even more for less service.

Scott Walker (R-Wiskochistan) poses with activists holding a $900 million check from his Koch overlords

2007 Article by Gallup predicts Hillary Clinton’s 20+ point lead over Obama might be insurmountable
      Bernie still has plenty of time to make inroads into some communities and locations and to catch up in the polls. Add to this that Bernie will be brining in a great number of people to vote in primaries and participate in caucuses who are not traditional Democrats, particularly Greens, Independents, and people that never participate. Don’t take early polls too seriously. We can and will win this so long as everyone keeps up the grassroots action on the ground.

He assured me voters are more interested in the integrity and authenticity of candidates than the specifics of any policies they espouse. "They know that I believe what I say, and they trust I have their interests at heart," he told me. "That's why I'll win." Paul did win, and he became one of America's greatest senators. I often think about him these days, as Bernie gains momentum.

Privatizing/profitizing education is one of the stupidest things a country can do. It will stifle the ability for every child to succeed or fail based on their own merits, and only benefit the children of the richest among us. We don't need more aristocracy, we need more meritocracy in America.

Bernie Sanders states once again that he will not run as a Third-Party Candidate 
Bernie Sanders has repeatedly reminded us that he will support whoever the Democratic nominee is. This is the right thing to do, because no matter who wins the nomination process, we have to be united to fight the pretty openly proto-fascist conservative Republicans. Any GOP POTUS would make the Bush/Cheney regime look pleasant by comparison.

Further, there is a certainly political calculus to this too. When Bernie wins the nomination, we are going to need all those Hillary, O'Malley, Webb, etc. supporters to stand with us. We simply cannot afford to burn bridges by signing pledges to reject anyone but Bernie. He wouldn't want that, and has said so openly. 

Also, watch out for right wing infiltrators that are only trying to cause division. Be like Bernie. Don't go negative.It... more »

If conservatives actually examined the evidence impartially, and allowed the facts to shape their view of things, they would be liberals. There's a reason why cons constantly fall for pseudoscandals that later prove to be bullshit (birthers, acorn, etc.), it's because their brains are psychologically proven to be hardwired to just blindly accept the narrative dictated to them by a central authority figure.   https://www.psychologytoday.com/articles/200612/the-ideological-animal

On the 50th anniversary of #Medicare  +Bernie Sanders calls for  #SinglePayer  healthcare
I am one of the people that have healthcare for the first time in their adult life thanks to the Affordable Care Act (and Minnesota's even better state version of it). Yet, it is clear that our work is not done. The ACA was a good first step, but to truly fix what ails our health care system, we need a Single Payer system. We already have one for seniors called Medicare, now all we have to really do is just remove the age cap on it and make it available to everyone.

#FeelTheBern   #HealthCareReform   #HealthCare   #Health  

Yes, Obamacare brought a significant improvement in U.S. health coverage, but we must keep moving forward!  It's way past time for the US to join the vast majority of developed nations in providing universal healthcare to its people.    http://goo.gl/2HLZz

How the media frames things has a huge impact on public perception
Always remember to read past the headline and learn to read between the lines. Do your own independent research, get your news from a wide variety of source (mostly international), and never, ever just blindly accept a claim. Triple that skepticism when it comest to conservative media and websites.

We get it. Times are tough, I'm there too. But one single dollar for +Bernie Sanders is a great way to get people that want to get more involved invested in the campaign. Studies have shown that any amount donated makes someone feel like they have a personal stake in a movement, and everyone can afford a single dollar. The key is to get them to actually go to the website and donate that dollar. Then the rest just falls into place.

At 3500 locations nationwide, over 100,000 of us went to gatherings for Bernie Sanders last night. This grassroots movement is just getting going, and is the ONLY way we are going to take our country back from the billionaires who are trying to steal it out from under us.

#Bernie2016  

Went to a Bernie Sanders campaign event last night.
Some of his key ideas.
1.  Let's make it easier for young people to go to college, than to go to jail.  And let's make college tuition free for those who qualify to enter the university.
2.  Let's stop running the country so all the wealth goes to the top 1/10th of 1%
3.  Let's look at areas (like childcare and family leave) where the US lags behind best practices in the West, and fix that.

Lots of other good stuff that will vastly improve things for ordinary working people.  If you think the US will benefit from this, please look into sending Bernie a campaign donation, and voting for him.  You'll need to change your registration to Dem to vote for Bernie.  Even in states with open primaries, that doesn't apply to Presidential contests (according to what I heard last night).  Bernie needs to defeat Hillary in the primary first.___They tried to bury us, but they didn't know we were seeds.   #FeelTheBern

Get involved. You're a player in this game, whether you know it or not.

Stunningly beautiful animation of moisture and dust circulation patterns in Earth's atmosphere

"Increasingly intense storms in the United States might have an unexpected origin: Asian air pollution. Researchers from NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory have found that aerosols from across the Pacific strengthen extratropical cyclones—a type of storm system that drives much of our country's weather.
"Asia is home to the world's 20 most polluted cities, but that dirty air doesn’t stay put, as the above animation of aerosol emissions shows. Water vapor in the atmosphere condenses around particles, and an influx of particulate matter—say, from a coal-fired power plant—can produce bigger, badder clouds. So far, the atmospheric scientists have only looked at how pollution from the continent affects North American weather, but they expect that the effects are global in scale. When countries around the world finalize carbon emissions commitments this year, let’s hope they remember we’re on different sides of the same planet."

Reminder the rate of cost increases for #Medicare  have been far less than private insurance since 1997
And yet conservatives want to destroy this important social program so that private corporations can continue their profiteering scheme at your expense.

Happy birthday Medicare!
#NewDeal   #RealDeal   #SocialPrograms   #Healthcare   #SinglePayer  

Here is a brief factoid from Noble prize winning economist Paul Krugman NYTimes blog comparing premium costs of America's single payer health care insurance with comparable offerings from for profit health insurance providers.

As the graph below shows, the increases in Medicare health insurance premiums for comparable plans has been significantly less than private health care insurance for almost 20 years. The graph underscores the question as to why the US remains the only modern nation in the world without universal single payer health care. ___Reminder the rate of cost increases for #Medicare  have been far less than private insurance since 1997

Snake-handling Kentucky Christian refuses treatment after rattlesnake bite — dies
The Bell County Sheriff’s Office reported that John David Brock was bitten during Sunday morning services at the Mossy Simpson Pentecostal Church. Brock refused medical treatment and died four hours later at his brother’s home in the town of Jenson.

I guess his faith wasn't strong enough, or maybe it was "God's Will"

Campaign Consultant Presents Scott Walker Several Human Sides To Choose From
During the strategy session at Walker’s Iowa campaign headquarters, the Wisconsin governor reportedly tried on an assortment of potential humanizing identities, from several “salt-of-the-earth family man” personas to a more daring “independent-minded maverick” option, in an effort to find a well-fitting human side that the candidate could put on for the remainder of his campaign.

I love it when #humor  is so close to reality. How sad is it that people can't see past the mask politicians wear, to look deeper and see who they are based on their voting record?   #Politics  should not be a focus group driven marketing campaign based on big money and deception. It should be about genuine ideas about how to best move America forward.
