MUST WATCH – “TPP – FAST TRACK TO HELL”


State of the Union – 2015

 

What Martin Luther King Actually Did

What most people who reference Dr. King seem not to know is how Dr. King actually changed the subjective experience of life in the United States for African Americans. And yeah, I said for African Americans, not for Americans, because his main impact was his effect on the lives of African Americans, not on Americans in general. His main impact was not to make white people nicer or fairer. That’s why some of us who are African Americans get a bit possessive about his legacy. Dr. Martin Luther King’s legacy, despite what our civil religion tells us, is not color blind. Read the story here.

 
Elizabeth Warren

 


To honor Eleanor Roosevelt and her dedication to women’s rights, the The National Committee for the Preservation of Social Security and Medicare (NCPSSM) is introducing a new initiative called:

Eleanor’s Hope for Women

Eleanor’s Hope is an effort to bring women’s income, Social Security, Medicare  and Medicaid benefits up to the level of males.

Laura Feldman, a Washington, DC representative of the NCPSSM, will be in the Tri-County area to introduce the initiative from February 10 through the 13th.  You will have several opportunities to hear about this important initiative. Click here to read more about the program and to view the flyer.


A KAFFEE KLATSCH is “a casual gathering of people, especially for refreshments and informal conversation”. The Villages Democratic Club has just introduced this concept so that newcomers (and oldtimers) can get to know their Democratic neighors. These are scheduled in the next few weeks.

Numerous successful and well-attended Kaffee Klatschs were held in October,  November and January. A number more are scheduled for February and March. See the Upcoming Events for the upcoming get togethers.

Attend your neighborhood Kaffee Klatsch and meet your Democratic neighbors. You can read more about this new program here
