+Gavin Newsom Lt. Governor, I heard you are going to be on +KPCC 's Airtalk with +Larry Mantle today, 07/19/2017. So I wanted to ask you this question to address on air.

What do you say to faithful DNC voters like me who think that the POLICIES the DNC has supported in the last 30 years are NOT to the benefit of their traditional working people base? I just heard +Barbara Boxer last night on +KQED on +City Arts And Lectures and she claimed HRC lost because the DNC do not do a good enough job of MESSAGING to working class people that the DNC is the party for them. I say it is not the MESSAGING, it is the ACTUAL POLICIES which SHOW working class people that the party is not TRULY for them.

NOT ONE Wall Street Fat Cat was put in prison in 2007, 2008 or 2009 when Obama was president and House/Senate were DNC controlled.

Only 25 DNC senators voted AGAINST authorization for Iraq War - +Barbara Boxer called it a "lonely" vote.

Commodity Futures Modernization Act that CAUSED 2007, 2008 and 2009 was passed under Bill Clinton Administration.

Welfare Reform was passed under Bill Clinton Administration.

Employee Choice Act was passed under Bill Clinton Administration.

Crime Bill was passed under Bill Clinton Administration.

NAFTA was passed under Bill Clinton Administration.

For One Saudi Woman, 'Daring To Drive' Was An Act Of Civil Disobedience on Fresh Air WHYY with Teri Gross

Manal al-Sharif's path to activism began simply enough: In 2011, the Saudi woman filmed herself driving a car, then uploaded the video to YouTube. Ordinarily such a video might not get much notice, but because it's not socially acceptable for women to drive in Saudi Arabia, where there is a de facto ban, Sharif's video went viral.

Sharif describes driving as an act of civil disobedience: "For me, driving — or the right to drive — is not only about moving from A to B; it's a way to emancipate women," she says. "It gives them so much liberty. It makes them independent."

Initially arrested for driving, Sharif was released when her story elicited outrage from around the world. She now lives in Sydney, Australia, with her second husband and son.

Though she is no longer in Saudi Arabia, Sharif remains outspoken about women's rights: "When I see something wrong, I speak up," she says of her advocacy on behalf of Saudi women. "It should be the norm, not the exception." Her new memoir is Daring to Drive.

How Black people are treated in the United States today is how King George treated American colonists back in the day
In the long, hot summer of 1968, Richard Nixon accepted the Republican nomination for President with a speech in Miami that promised ‘law and order’.

Racial tensions were running high. Martin Luther King Jr. had been assassinated; destructive riots had torn through major US cities; and the ink on America’s civil rights legislation had barely dried. But there was Nixon, speaking at the Republican National Convention, offering hope for a better day.

“Let us build bridges,” he said. “Build bridges to human dignity across that gulf that separates black America from white America. Black Americans, no more than white Americans, they do not want more government programs which perpetuate dependency. They don’t want to be a colony in a nation.”

That last line — “a colony in a nation” — stands out to MSNBC’s Chris Hayes. Because nearly 50 years later, Hayes argues— that is exactly what we have created for black and brown Americans.
