Severe weather alert for my area - first since I've lived here

Vista CA has a severe weather alert, and it's looking ugly outside. The alert was sent out by phone, we've never had that happen. This does not look good. Weather radar says it starts in 9 minutes. Stay safe everyone

Poverty is Slavery #blacklivesmatter   Sanders message is freedom from that slavery*

I hope the BLM movement takes some time to think about the impact of economic injustice on black lives. A person that has to work 3 jobs just to live is not free, they are an economic slave

To my African American brothers and Sisters
You, and everyone else shackled by poverty wages are economic slaves. You will never be free until we break those chains. Here's how we're going to do that:

1) Provide financing so employees can buy the business they work for and turn it into a worker- owned co-op
2) Stopping the militarization of police, and freeing your people from prison.
3) Spending money in your communities on infrastructure that is going to improve your quality of life
4) Invest in building schools, not prisons.

Bernie does think Black Lives Matter He has thought that for the past 40 years. He thought about it real hard when he marched with Dr. Martin Luther King
 
Candidate Bernie Sanders Different Take

Vox.com: Sanders doesn't focus on race because he believes racial issues can only be solved by addressing inequality. Dichotomy between different progressive camps: "That's why his response to events like the unrest in Ferguson in 2014, or in Baltimore this spring — which to other progressives were a reminder of structural racism in the criminal justice system — was to focus on local youth unemployment rates, and call for more young black Americans to get jobs. To Sanders, that's the ultimate solution to the underlying problem. To progressives who think addressing racism is an end in itself, that's a separate issue from getting police to stop killing young black Americans."
Economic progressivism has a champion in the 2016 race. Who is there for progressives who are passionate about racial equality to get excited about?

Bernie is beating Hillary on trust by over 20 points in HH and Iowa
More than half of the people in the polls hadn't heard of Sanders yet, and had no opinion.

Bernie has lots of room to grow as more people get to know him. Hillary is so well known that her favorability may have already peaked.

Hillary is behind Rubio and Walker for favorability - way behind them, by nearly 20 points. It's actually a three-way race at this point between Rubio, Sanders, and Walker.
 
Bernie Sanders is gaining steam. As more people have an opportunity to hear Bernie's message the more followers he gains. Bernie Sanders has a very strong, enthusiastic base of followers. Thanks to the great team effort of his grassroots network, Bernie's numbers continue to rise. We still have a lot of work to do yet. There are many who haven't heard Bernie's message. Lets redouble our efforts and draw more people to Bernie's camp. 
Sen. Bernie Sanders' momentum has continued to push him up in the polls just as former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's appears to be stalling out.
New Gallup poll numbers released this week show that the senator from Vermont's favorable rating in the U.S. "has doubled since Gallup's initial reading in March, rising to 24% from 12% as he has become better known." Meanwhile, Clinton's numbers have declined significantly since peaking at 66% just a few short years ago.
Sanders' rising familiarity is responsible for much of the increase, with about 44% of Americans knowing enough about him to declare a preference one way or the other, up from just 24% in March. But as Clinton has slid back into electoral politics, so too has she inevitably decreased in popularity, with her unfavorable rating (46%) outstripping her favorable rating (43%) for the first time since 2007.
Gallup's numbers additionally show that while Clinton remains a clear front runner among Democrats in the general population, a large segment of the U.S. population has unfavorable attitudes toward her, and only a few haven't made up their minds.
Clinton was inevitably bound to decline in favorable ratings among Americans as she re-entered electoral politics following her term as secretary of state, so the most recent poll findings probably don't reflect any specific liability such as the ongoing argument over her private email account. But Gallup's Lydia Saad writes that the poll indicates Clinton "remains the only Democratic candidate for president with a national name, and Clinton continues to stand head and shoulders above her next closest competitor — Sanders — in popularity for the presidential nomination."
Still, recent polling by Qunnipiac University illustrates that Clinton is facing some major image problems in the three swing states of Colorado, Iowa and Virginia, all of which currently have her losing against top Republican competitors.
For some Democrats, this uneasiness may make Sanders look like an attractive alternative to Clinton. But these people may get buyers' remorse if Sanders fails to build sufficient momentum among Democrats or make massive inroads to the general public, in which over half of Americans know so little about Sanders they declined to offer an opinion.

A call for #Solidarity  We Progressives must stand united

The Republicans want racial justice progressives to split off from economic justice progressives because that divides our power in half. We can't let them do that.

We have to stand united, or we lose. There will be no racial justice, there will be no economic justice.

How do we heal that which divides us as progressives so we can stand united for everyone's good?
 
An Important Message from Robert Reich: Why Progressives Must Stay United

A new report finds more U.S. children living in poverty than before the Great Recession. According to the report, released Tuesday from the Annie E. Casey Foundation, 22 percent of American children are living in poverty (as of 2013, the latest data available) compared with 18 percent in 2008.

The number that represents 22 percent is approximately 15 million children living in poverty in the most wealthy country in the world. Let that sink in for a moment.

Now let this sink in: Poverty rates are nearly double among African-Americans and American Indians. Problems are most severe in South and Southwest. Particularly troubling is a large increase in the share of children living in poor communities marked by poor schools and a lack of a safe place to play.

Which brings me to politics, power, and the progressive movement.

The main event at the Netroots Nation conference in Phoenix, Arizona last weekend was a “Presidential Town Hall” featuring one-on-one discussions between journalist and undocumented American Jose Antonio Vargas and presidential candidates Governor Martin O’Malley and Senator Bernie Sanders.

It was upstaged by ‪#‎BlackLivesMatter activists who demanded to be heard.

Here's the point:
~ It’s impossible to overcome widening economic inequality in America without also dealing with the legacy of racial inequality.

~ And it is impossible to overcome racial inequality without also reversing widening economic inequality.

They are not the same but they are intimately related.

Racial inequalities are baked into our political and economic system. Police brutality against black men and women, mass incarceration disproportionately of blacks and Latinos, housing discrimination that has resulted in racial apartheid across the nation, and voter suppression in the forms of gerrymandered districts, voter identification requirements, purges of names from voter registration lists, and understaffed voting stations in black neighborhoods – all reveal deep structures of discrimination that undermine economic inequality.

Black lives matter.

But it would be a terrible mistake for the progressive movement to split into a “Black lives matter” movement and an “economic justice” movement.

*Why?*This would only play into the hands of the right.

For decades Republicans have exploited the economic frustrations of the white working and middle class to drive a wedge between races, channeling those frustrations into bigotry and resentment.

The Republican strategy has been to divide-and-conquer. They want to prevent the majority of Americans – poor, working class, and middle-class, blacks, Latinos, and whites – from uniting in common cause against the moneyed interests.

We must not let them.

Our only hope for genuine change is if poor, working class, middle class, black, Latino, and white come together in a powerful movement to take back our economy and democracy from the moneyed interests that now control both.

One of the things I love the most about being a Bernie supporter is how fun it is +Tessa Schlesinger Even my conservative friends here and on Twitter respect Bernie. They may disagree with many of his positions, but they admire his integrity.
