A mothers group is using the ad in a campaign to get Kroger to ban customers from openly displaying guns in their stores. The group delivered a petition with 300,000 signatures to the Ohio-based company yesterday.

STORY: http://shout.lt/Gqh3

What do you think? Should open carry be allowed in grocery stores?

"... Vote like it's the most important election in your lifetime Because it is" !!! amen! And thank you for ‪#‎POTUSpositive‬ mention +Pat Fuller , the POTUS positive information and for your hard work pushing POTUS positive messages on Twitter. Unlike the GOP Wall Street Journal, I do believe positive ratings for a president helps the entire ticket, though. Having said that,I certainly think everyone should be Tweeting positive information about their Democratic Candidates every day!!!

#PDMFNB #UniteBlue #GOTV

Many pundits believe that low presidential approval ratings are bad for the same party candidates in the midterm elections. But, is that really true? A recent article in the Wall Street Journal questioned the validity of that belief. They suggest that past elections see that trend, but, it is not a given.
http://blogs.wsj.com/washwire/2014/09/22/do-presidential-approval-ratings-really-matter-in-midterm-elections/

The disapproval ratings of the US Congress, however, may have an impact on the midterm election outcomes, suggests an article from FiveThirtyEight.com . Harry Enten's June 18th article, "Congress' Low Approval Rating is Hurting Republicans", says that voters feelings about Republican control of Congress may very well affect how they vote in the midterm election. http://fivethirtyeight.com/datalab/congresss-low-approval-rating-is-hurting-republicans/ Remember that this article was written before Congress recessed for a FIVE week vacation in August, returned to work for EIGHT days, and then recessed until after the midterm election. The Sept. 8 release of Gallop poll has Congress at their lowest approval rating in history! 14% Gallop's own analysis suggested that voters will be voting Democratic this fall. http://www.miamiherald.com/incoming/article1991336.html

So, don't give up. Keep posting POSITIVE messages about our President and his achievements. If you need ideas of things to share, please see this: http://www.washingtonmonthly.com/magazine/march_april_2012/features/obamas_top_50_accomplishments035755.php?page=all and this: http://www.addictinginfo.org/2013/02/15/a-long-list-of-president-obamas-accomplishments-with-citations/

If we Democrats who are active on social media, commit to daily sharing of positives, we may just be a decisive factor in the November election. In any case, sharing positives can't hurt. Please check out the #POTUSPositive hashtag if you are on twitter and add it to any of your tweets that relay positive information about our president. Thanks for all you do to Get Out The Vote and help Democrats.

I love Obamacare. How about you? My granddaughter has epilepsy and cannot be denied coverage. My husband has had a kidney transplant and medications that would cost thousands of dollars a month are covered and we cannot be denied coverage because of pre-existing conditions. I love it that millions of people who once could not afford healthcare or who were turned down for coverage now have healthcare coverage. Yet, many right wing "news" sources continue to tell their viewers outright lies about Ocare. And amazingly, the people believe the lies.

This article in Daily Kos by Joan McCarter tells ways that Obamacare is working. http://www.dailykos.com/story/2014/09/30/1333217/-Seven-ways-Obamacare-is-working#

More people have coverage; that coverage is more affordable. Total healthcare costs are rising at the lowest rate in history. People's physical and mental health are improving. Ocare is helping to reduce the deficit. What's not to like about that? Yet the right wing continues to tell people about death panels and other nonsense to scare and confuse them. Please help spread the word that Obamacare is working and encourage Medicaid expansion in states that have not done so yet. Peoples' lives depend on access to affordable healthcare coverage. http://obamacarefacts.com/obamacares-medicaid-expansion.php

Former President Clinton hit the nail on the head. The Republican message is a giant scam. It is a trick that is designed to get voters who are angry at the president now to throw away their future. This election is not about Barack Obama. With each passing day, President Obama inches closer to the end of his presidency. There will likely be no more major legislation passed during the Obama presidency.
Former President Bill Clinton told voters what Republicans don't want them to know while campaigning with Sen. Mark Pryor in Arkansas. Clinton explained that Republicans are trying use Obama to scam voters into supporting them.

Armed, Violent Family Members Have "Guns Rights" Too!

Is there any constituency whose "gun rights" the gun lobby won't defend? The NRA lobbies for the "gun rights" of the mentally ill, people under orders or protection for domestic violence and convicted felons. When Florida's Sun Sentinel reported that concealed weapon licenses were issued to 1,400 probable felons, NRA lobbyist Marion P. Hammer said, "When you begin taking away the rights of people that you don't like, that's the slippery slope." People you don't like? #WTF  
 
Now, after California Governor Jerry Brown signed the nation's first law allowing private citizens to ask a court to seize guns from potentially violent family members, gun advocates are defending...potentially violent family members. The new law could deprive them of their "right to defend themselves," say gun advocates "before they had committed a crime."
 
The seven family members allegedly killed by their grandfather/father last month in Bell, Florida might have welcomed a law stopping a perpetrator before he "committed a crime." So would the family of six killed in July in Spring, Texas. Both families were allegedly killed by relatives who posed clear and present dangers long before the bloodshed. Most domestic gun violence is easy to predict and the family of the gunman who allegedly killed six in Isla Vista in May, sparking the California law, warned police of the imminent danger.
 
Last year we learned of a Nevada woman who repeatedly reached out to state and federal authorities about her former boyfriend obtaining guns despite a conviction for gun-related domestic violence. Both the Henderson, Nevada police department where the conviction occurred and Glendale, Arizona police department where the boyfriend resides, told us we would have to wait until "something happens."
 
There is another chilling constituency whose "gun rights" the gun lobby defends. People who want to own a sniper rifle which has no defensive use whatever. When National Gun Victim Action Council called for a ban of civilian sales of TrackingPoint's "can't miss" sniper rifles which use "innovative optics, automatic ballistics calculation and guided fire control to create the most accurate long-range shooting system in the world," gun advocates screamed the government was coming after their "hunting rifles." Right.
 
Does the Second Amendment protect the rights of someone to own a sniper weapon with no defensive use? Do violent, armed family members really need to "defend" themselves when they, in fact, are the perpetrators?  Is the NRA really against "bad guys" when it defends the "gun rights" of people under orders or protection for domestic violence, convicted felons, the violent mentally ill and people who want to own sniper weapons?
 
Join National Gun Victim Action Council's action to tell corporate America to get off the "sidelines" and take a stand against gun violence including sniper weapons sold to civilians. When corporations want sane gun laws, we will have sane gun laws.

President Obama spoke Thursday at Northwestern University in Chicago. He told those young people that they are the ones who will shape the future. He also told how America is the one constant in an uncertain world. The world looks to USA for help and for answers. We are leaders and we welcome that attention.
Now, what is good about our economy. When President Obama took office businesses were laying off 800,000 workers a month. Now, businesses are hiring 200,000 workers a month. Unemployment was 10% in 2009 and now it is 6.1%. Our country has put more people back to work than Europe, Japan and every other advanced country combined. President Obama has increased investments in clean energy. This has helped us reduce carbon emissions. The president also told that more than half the companies that outsourced jobs are looking to bring them back to our shores. 

What still needs to happen? President Obama said that it is still too hard for working families to get ahead. Now, we need to reverse the erosion of middle class and their jobs. The measure of success is more that GDP. We can increase job growth with help of Congress. We can help Americans succeed with the help of Congress. The current situation favors the few at the expense of the middle class. President Obama said that regulations that save lives and protect families are good for the economy. He mentioned a survey that said for the first time in more than a decade, business leaders cite US as most attractive place in which to invest. So, let's rebuild roads and bridges. We can pay for it with tax reform. There are so many things that we can do if we have the vision and the will to do it. Let's pass an immigration bill, he said. The White House shared a graphic that highlights his speech: http://www.whitehouse.gov/share/economic-update-where-we-are-and-where-were-going

He went on to say we should raise the minimum wage and ensure equal pay for women. None of the policies proposed alone will achieve the desired effect alone. President Obama said he is always willing to work with others to get things done. If gridlock prevails, then he will keep doing what he can alone.

Why don't we fix this by giving him a Congress that he can work with? That makes the most sense to me.
