And this my dear is the reality. The more we allow our most influential voices to spew that "pull yourself up by your own bootstraps" B.S. narrative, the more we kill any chance at equity in this country. #15now

Last night @abcnews did a special on the working poor of America! This segment gave great insights into the realities that many Americans face day to day.
This brother Terence in this segment works 2 jobs at $8 and hour, works 16 hour days, and has to catch 8 buses just to make it to work.
He says, "Even with the two jobs he would make so little money at times that he had to choose between paying the electric bill and buying groceries." “Some may look and say, ‘It’s something you didn’t do right,’” Wise said. “And they think, ‘OK, well you should have stayed in school or should have done this.’ Well, I’m working, I have a family and we’re at where we’re at in this life right now.” "One of the hardest things he said was watching the leftover food at the end of his shift at McDonald's get thrown away. He said in many franchises, the workers are not allowed to take home leftovers because they say their bosses worry about them making excess food just so they can take it home." #lovebeyondwalls #lovecenter #instarepost20

Happy birthday to this girl who's day by day turning into an amazing young lady🎂 Love youu #mybabysister #15now

To everyone who was doubting the strength of our movement, thank you! We are now on our way to raising the minimum wage for all workers in Minneapolis phased in through the next 4 years! #15now and with the help of low wage workers and other organizations we are on our way to#onefairwage. Haters I see you đŸ˜đŸ™‹đŸœâ€â™‚ïžđŸ‘‹

After 16 YEARS, Trillions of Tax Dollars spent, Millions of Innocent Civilians Killed, Thousands of US Service personel Sacrificed, and Millions more made into Refugees of the "War on Terror"; thus far our country has not bombed its way to Peace. Maybey we should try something different?

It is now reported that MI5 was facilitating the travel of non-jihadi British Libyans to fight in Tripoli. The minister responsible for that decision would have been May. Did she ask about the impact of the Libyan fighting on the terror threat here? That would be something the newspapers, if they did their job, would be shouting at her today, instead of hurling insults at Jeremy Corbyn.

“ I cannot be a pessimist because I am alive. To be a pessimist means you have agreed that human life is an academic matter, so I am forced to be an optimist. I am forced to believe that we can survive whatever we must survive.” – James Baldwin

Like many millennials, James Baldwin did not grab my attention while I was in high school or college. When Baldwin did enter my consciousness it was evident from his first novel, Go Tell It On The Mountain and The Fire Next Time that he was an excellent writer. It was not until YouTube videos like James Baldwin’s debate with William F. Buckley on “whether the American dream is at the expense of the American Negro” started making the rounds on Facebook, and Twitter that Baldwin had a real impact on me. In this age of Black Lives Matter, his words 50 years later are still relevant.

The theatrical release and an Oscar-nominated documentary narrated by Samuel L. Jackson, I Am Not Your Negro by Haitian-born director Raoul Peck is groundbreaking and inspiring. Peck’s film credits include Lumumba, a biographical account of the U.S./Belgian coup d’etat and assassination of the first democratically elected prime minister of the Congo, Patrice Lumumba. This summer, Peck’s next film, The Young Karl Marx, will be released in the United States.

I Am Not Your Negro is a product of an unfinished manuscript from 1979 titled Remember This Housethat chronicles Baldwin’s friendship with iconic figures including Medgar Evers, Malcolm X, and Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr, and their political contribution to the black freedom movement. All three of these key figures were assassinated. Raoul Peck had full license and access to Baldwin’s estate. That access to the material is on full display throughout the documentary.

Alles Gute zu meinem Geburtstag #15now

President Donald Trump's administration this week touted an infrastructure plan that would sell off public assets to private financial firms. Left unsaid in the White House promotional materials was any mention that the Trump aide who is overseeing the initiative comes from a Wall Street firm that says it is seeking to buy up the very same kind of assets the Trump administration plans to sell off.

Leading the White House privatization initiative is Gary Cohn, the former president of Goldman Sachs, who received a $285 million dollar payoutupon leaving the bank and taking a job as the director of Trump’s National Economic Council. As Cohn has led the infrastructure privatization initiative from that perch, Goldman Sachs declared that it continues to look at “new business initiatives” that revolve around taking ownership of public assets, according to Securities and Exchange Commission documents reviewed by International Business Times.

Cohn is spearheading the administration’s infrastructure policy despite a White House official tellingBloomberg News in February that he “will recuse himself from participating in any matter directly involving his former employer.” That pledge seemed at the time to show that Cohn was following ethics rules Trumpenacted in January. Those rules require federal officials to sign an ethics pledge in which they agree to wait two years before they “participate in any particular matter involving specific parties that is directly and substantially related to my former employer.” Continued in the Comments.😉👇 http://www.ibtimes.com/political-capital/trump-administration-conflicts-interest-how-gary-cohn-could-sell-us-infrastructure

The only people Trump has not hired from GoldmanSachs is Goldman and Sachs. Certainly we desperately need to refurbish our Infrastructure however Privatization is Not necessary nor beneficial to the Tax Payer. What it does is simply give ownership to corporations of things that are used and needed by the public in order to enrich Billionares. The Billionares can then go about running these formerly public assets for the purpose of making more profit rather than benefiting the public. Kind of like healthcare today. We're talking about roads, bridges, airports, train lines, bodies of water, public lands, etc. This public/private partnership means They Own it and You Never stop paying for it(like a toll road) in order to make them richer. These projects can and should be paid for with tax funds and we do have the money however our government under Trump would rather spend $645 BILLION Dollars on the military instead.
