Danial Hallock (Kysimir)4,130The Three HundredRough DraftA few weeks ago I posted a rather lengthy post about how I was changing my #circlemanagement  strategy from purpose based to engagement based (http://goo.gl/kqE8h).  This is the first rough draft of that circle, minus a few ninjas that prefer not to be shared out.  As such, the landscape of this circle will change drastically over the next few months; but I wanted to give the people who are following this circle a glimpse of what to expect.  As always, If you're notified you're in it. If you're in it, why not recommend a few people for me to circle up, or share the circle out with your stream? :D #thethreehundred   #circleshare   #sharingiscaring  2012-10-22 15:52:142971201281CC G+

Danial Hallock (Kysimir)0Teach Me SomethingI briefly alluded to my recent change in how I manage my circles and my reduction from twelve circles to seven (http://goo.gl/ZObSz).  This is the first of three shares that will include a vetted group of individuals that excel in the Google Plus experience in some way.These particular individuals excel at, you guessed it, teaching me something.  There's nearly one hundred plussers here, all of whom post once a week (or more), so while not every single post is educational, you're going to walk away from this stream knowing more than you did walking in.They're all in one circle, but they're not all from one background.  +Paula Jones, for example, excels at teaching us about the #politics  and societal issues of American life.  Meanwhile, +Joshua Tenner is a #paleo  enthusiast and +Kristjan Gunnarsson maintains a #fitness  and #nutrition  blog.  That's just to name a few, there are a few biologists, astronomers, tech giants, philosophers, and just all around smart people.  So if you're looking to spice up your Google Plus experience with a game of educational Russian Roulette, then pick up this circle!  For some more highly educational posters, check out my No Name Needed circle: http://goo.gl/p8yri #sharingiscaring   #circleshare  2012-06-23 12:58:329418119CC G+

Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.): 

College Costs: Sen. Sanders heard this week from college students in Vermont who expressed "very serious concerns about the high cost of college." Sanders told The Thom Hartmann Program on Friday that increasing numbers of students are "shackled with these terrible, terrible debts," and are being "forced to go into professions they don't want to do.”

Koch Brothers: Sen. Sanders describes what it is that the Kochs have in mind for a future American plutocracy “and it's ugly,” a blogger wrote for the Akron (Ohio) Beacon Journal. Sanders' "must-read article" posted on Truthdig, lays out the David Koch-backed 1980 Libertarian Party platform, which called for the abolition, repeal or termination of "every major piece of legislation that has been signed into law over the past 80years ... more »

Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.):

Who are the Koch Brothers?: The billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch are using the fortune that they inherited to fund campaigns by candidates who believe in tax breaks for the wealthiest people and major cuts in Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid, food stamps and education, Sen. Bernie Sanders said in an interview Thursday on MSNBC. “They are, the Koch brothers, helping to lead the war against working families in this country.” 

What Do They Want?: Sen. Sanders “keen and brilliant insights” into the Koch brothers' extremist agenda were laid out in an op-ed by the senator for The Huffington Post, according to a Daily Kos blog. The Kochs’ objective “is to move this country from a democratic society with a strong middle class to an oligarchic form of society in which the economic and political life of the nationare controll... more »

Who are the Koch Brothers and What do They Want?: 

As a result of the disastrous Citizens United Supreme Court decision, billionaires and large corporations can now spend an unlimited amount of money to influence the political process. The results of that decision are clear. In the coming months and years the Koch brothers and other extraordinarily wealthy families will spend billions of dollars to elect right-wing candidates to the Senate, the House, governors' mansions and the presidency of the United States. These billionaires already own much of our economy. That, apparently, is not enough. Now, they want to own the United States government as well.

Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.):

From Extreme to Mainstream: The Libertarian Party platform in 1980 called for abolishing the minimum wage, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and income taxes. David Koch was the candidate for vice president that year on a ticket headed by Edward Clark. They thought Ronald Reagan was too liberal. Back then, they got 1 percent of the vote. Today, David Koch and his brother Charles have turned those 1980 extremist ideas into mainstream Republican Party orthodoxy by putting their fortune behind right-wing politicians and think tanks. It’s all part of a campaign, Sen. Bernie Sanders wrote in a column for The Huffington Post, to “repeal every major piece of legislation that has been signed into law over the past 80 years that has protected the middle class, the elderly, the children, the sick and the most vulnerable in this country.”

In 2012, Bank of America operated more than 300 subsidiaries incorporated in offshore tax havens like the Cayman Islands, which has no corporate taxes. Read about Sen. Sander' budget plan to stop the use of offshore tax havens here: http://www.sanders.senate.gov/budget/

Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.):

Sanders in New Hampshire: Chris Galdieri, an assistant professor of politics at St. Anselm College, was interviewed Tuesday by Vermont Public Radio about Sen. Sanders’ appearance at the school last weekend. “It went over very well. He attracted a large crowd. There were a lot of folks who were just very eager to hear what he had to say,” Galdieri said. “If he were to run in the Democratic primary … [and]  if Hilary Clinton is a candidate in 2016, there is definitely an opening for a candidate to the left of her,” the professor added.  He also thought that “Sanders would be much more willing to just put it all out there, go ahead with his very progressive economic message and let the chips fall where they may.”

'A Fair Shake' for Working Families: Congress should expand opportunities for working Americans. "The American people want to see the middle class of this country grow," Sanders said. "They don’t want to see more tax breaks for the very, very wealthy. They want to see the ordinary folks of this country starting to get a fair shake," Sen. Bernie Sanders said Monday in a radio interview on The Ed Schultz Show. Republicans proposing tax cuts for the wealthy and cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid are espousing “the agenda of the Koch Brothers,” Sanders told Schultz Monday on MSNBC.

Today's news from Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.)

Sanders Packs  the House in New Hampshire: Sen. Bernie Sanders spoke before a packed house on Saturday at the New Hampshire Institute of Politics at St. Anselm College. If he runs for president, “he might tap into an anger fueled by the excesses of Wall Street and the corrupting influence of money in politics,” the Nashua Telegraph said in an editorial published on Monday. “A Sanders candidacy is intriguing, if only because it doesn’t seem like much of a reach to say that he is the most blunt-spoken member of Congress.”

The Country Needs Bernie: “You don't have to believe in any of Sanders' many nostrums - and I, for one, don't - to think that it would make for better politics and a great show to have him take on Ms. Clinton and make her take a stand for something other than her own excellence and destiny …Get after it B... more »

Sanders at St. Anselm: 

Appearing at a town meeting this weekend in Manchester, N.H., the longest-serving independent in the history of Congress discussed the collapsing American middle class and the growing gap in wealth and income in the United States. There was an overflow crowd. At the same time Sanders was speaking at St. Anselm College, the Koch brothers and Citizens United hosted a “Freedom Summit” across town. The contrast was remarkable. Watch the St. Anselm town meeting when it first airs on C-SPAN Sunday at 9:35 p.m. ET or see it later online.

In Vermont, women make 85 percent of what Vermont men make. No state does better, according to the American Association of University Women.

“We are proud that Vermont is No. 1 among the states, but we can do better in Vermont and we certainly can do better as a nation,” Sens. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.) and Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) said in a joint statement.

Health Care Success is a Republican ‘Nightmare’: A new poll found the number of uninsured Americans has fallen to the lowest level since 2008. Sen. Bernie Sanders attributed that result to the successful implementation of the Affordable Care Act. “As millions of people begin to get affordable health care, as the Medicaid program expands and people who never had health insurance in their lives finally are able to go into a doctor – for the Republicans this is a nightmare,” the senator said during an MSNBC interview Monday on The Ed Show.

'Their Nightmare'

With more than 7 million Americans signing up for health insurance coverage under the Affordable Care Act, critics who predicted its collapse are instead dealing with “their worst nightmare,” Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Monday.

“First, the United States remains the only country in the industrialized world that doesn’t guarantee health care to all of its people as a right. Second of all, the Republicans have opposed the Affordable Care Act from day one – it is their nightmare that it succeeds. Thirdly these are the same guys that want to end Medicare as we know it, convert it into a voucher program, who want to make massive cuts in Medicaid, who had eight years under Bush to do something – even a little thing – about health care, they did nothing. So these guys have nothing at all to say. And their nightmare is as millions of people begin to getaffordable he... more »

Senators Support Seniors:

More than two dozen senators have called for a significant funding increase for Older Americans Act programs like Meals on Wheels in order to keep up with the increasing needs of a growing population of elderly Americans. Sen. Bernie Sanders, chairman of a Senate subcommittee that oversees seniors’ programs, was joined by 26 colleagues in urging the chairman and ranking member of a Senate appropriations panel to provide at least a 12 percent increase in funding for the coming year.

In their letter, the senators said a 12 percent increase would be an important step toward meeting existing demand, addressing rising costs, and responding to the growth in the number of seniors over the past decade. There are now more than 60 million Americans over age 60. Some 10,000 baby boomers turn 65 every day. People older than 85 make up the fastest growing segment of thee... more »

Seven House Republicans from high-unemployment regions or swing districts plan to send House Speaker John Boehner a letter to urge him to take up the Senate bill or a similar measure. Other House Republicans are pressing to attach to the Senate bill what they call job-creation measures: building the transcontinental Keystone XL pipeline; consolidating job training programs; or raising employer-mandated health care coverage to employees who work 40 hours a week, rather than 30, as written in President Obama’s health care law.

Real Unemployment at 12.7%:

The official unemployment rate for March was 6.7 percent, unchanged from February, but real unemployment ticked up to 12.7 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics announced on Friday. That number counts workers forced to settle for part-time jobs and those unemployed for so long that they have given up looking for work. The Senate is expected to vote Monday to resurrect benefits that expired last Dec. 28 for the long-term jobless. “This will impact several million American workers who are at the end of their ropes financially,” Sanders said. Passing the bill is “the morally right thing to do” and “good economics,” the senator added, but he cautioned that the measure faces an uncertain fate in the Republican-run House.

Must Read: The Ryan Budget Is a Broken Record of Failed Trickle-Down Economics

+Center for American Progress 

For the past three years, House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) has been trotting out the same conservative, top-down policies that have failed the nation’s middle- and working-class families, seniors, and the economy. The House Republican budget is built around the tenet that nearly everyone else must sacrifice in order to continue to give billions of dollars in tax breaks to millionaires, big corporations, and Big Oil. At every turn, the House Republican budget reveals its vision of an economy and government that only works for the wealthiest individuals and special corporate interests at the cost of everyone else.

Spying on Americans: 

President Barack Obama is crafting legislation that would stop the National Security Agency from collecting records on millions of Americans’ telephone calls. Instead, phone companies would store the records. Law enforcement officials would have to convince a judge that there is a specific reason to search the records. Meanwhile, however, the administration asked a special court that operates in secret for a 90-day extension of the NSA’s authorization to conduct the bulk collection. “The president should end that program now, not 90 days from now,” Sen. Bernie Sanders said on Tuesday. He discussed it with Ed Schultz on MSNBC.
