Featuring: “This is how American democracy dies: Republicans’ plan to rip up the Constitution" &, BTW, it is closer than you think!

Early in our nation’s history, our founders met with the goal of reforming America’s fledgling government. In 1787, they called a convention —

Delegates to that convention promptly drew the shutters, locked the doors, and set about re-writing our entire system of government. It was in this first convention that our Constitution was conceived and precedents for American laws and values were set.

However, what many Americans don’t know is that the same thing could happen again today — only instead of George Washington and James Madison writing our new Constitution, it would be Donald Trump, Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell setting the ground rules. … ”

Featuring: “Al Gore optimistic about climate change? In this spirited talk, Gore asks three powerful questions about the man-made forces threatening to destroy our planet -- and the solutions we're designing to combat them. (Featuring Q&A with TED curator Chris Anderson)”

~ Personal Commentary

 Highlighted excerpts from the transcript of former Vice President Al Gore's TED speech on climate change published in February of 2016 before (Asterisk 45) was installed in the Oval Office (with a high probability by the Russians) follow below...

I am of the mind we need to remember where we were pre (Asterisk 45) if we are to see where we are going post (Asterisk 45), if we are to be clear on the changes not to come as the vulture capitalists, with the blessing of the GOP climate change deniers GOP Kremlin cohorts, plunder the United States of America at the expense of the planet!

After just re-watching "An Inconvenient Truth" and Gore's February 2016 speech I am feeling very sad for him, for all climate change activists and for all of us on the planet because what was -- several short months ago -- is no longer where we are!

Featuring "Five Ways To Step Up Against Attacks On Our Families"

(Or, everyone can do something!)

"THIS IS NOT A DRILL—The devastating policies and "guidance" being set by the Trump Administration and Congressional Republicans all have one goal in mind: to pit our communities against each other—distracted by fighting over inadequate health care funds, culture wars, and job security—so they can pillage our nation's financial and environmental resources to benefit a select few.

OF COURSE access to health care, civil rights, and economic security are paramount for each of us to be able to live healthy, free, and full lives. We must keep fighting for our values on those fronts.

But we must also remember WHY they're attacking on all fronts..."

Featuring: The Democratic National Committee, the Association of State Democratic Chairs, & the DNC Unity Reform Commission To Meet In Las Vegas October 18-21~ A Personal Commentary

We are all busy people, so here's a reminder of what might be the last chance for iinterested parties to inform selves and share your constructive thinking as our Party works to become a serious 50-state party on a year-round basis. 

Today, after watching the past three meetings, I will update my survey and I will attach my updated six pages of comments in the “leave a comment for the unity commission here” block where I suspect they are expecting a paragraph or two-- not six pages -- but, oh well.

To give you an idea of what I am saying to them, here's an edited version of my lead into the my comments can be found in the Blog...

* But I will say that although I think a creative way needs to be found to create a sort of "Friends of Democrats" membership category, the foundation of my comments are based on the premise that the Democratic National Party is a party for Democrats --

people who freely choose to commit to the vision and the mission and the goals of the Party who also choose to implement the objectives that will lead to the success of the Party, i.e. what is best for the government which, of course, is The People.

Featuring: "NAACP sues for information on 2020 Census ~ under the freedom of information act" plus ~ Personal Commentary

A NOT liberal media outlet reporting on a NOT liberal Senator:

"Trump feud with Corker gets personal"

Then, in a New York Times interview published on Sunday, Corker said Trump was treating the presidency like "a reality show" and that his threats against other countries could put the U.S. "on the path to World War III."
