Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This is too bizarre to take seriously. This is so obvious that the gun manufacturers play the gun lovers for fools every time they can. Obama is not in power now nor did he attempt to turn the nation into Muslims or take anyone's guns away unless maybe you pack automatic police and military weapons into your house.The same whiners about their 2nd amendment rights within the last month set silent and shrugged their shoulders as Trump and the GOP literally signed away their 4th amendment right to privacy without even so much as a comment period. Soon the same group hope to kick away the 1st amendment by handing the same big companies control of the internet. Gun companies need to sale check concealed weapons and silencers because sales are dropping fast without the Obama is going to take your guns marketing trigger. Silence Rd are not the quite like you see on TV... and let them shove a comfortable metal gun up under their jacket or try to get into their kid's nursery school, field trip or the local shopping mall wearing one. The brilliance of the GOP is awesome. They Quietly undermine the 1st and 4th Amendment while focusing on the the least powerful of the three... that is unless these people are planning to buy a dozen tanks and some fighting jets next. The same group haven't even picked up a phone or a poster to fight for their privacy and protection from warrantless search and seizure and the right to freely express yourself with an open internet which is our main communication system and a major mail/communication source today. o

If you do not like what he does to your Internet WEB nobody has to use the WEB.... How do we spell old, clueless fart? The time to retire this old goat was a decade ago.

U.S. FCC chairman plans fast-track repeal of net neutrality: sources

U.S. FCC chairman plans fast-track repeal of net neutrality: sources | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The chairman of the U.S. Federal Communications Commission is moving quickly to replace the Obama administration's landmark net neutrality rules and wants internet service providers to voluntarily agree to maintain an open internet, three sources briefed on the meeting said Thursday.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This FCC Chairman plans to shut down democratic voice fast...and hand the communication system of the internet to those with the biggest wallet....He intends to turn the WEB into toll booths and the 2nd generation cable. He still thinks he works for Verizon...maybe he does. Ask your greedy big banker to do what is best for your interest over his stock holders... See how long the volunteer plan works even if you are a customer.

Sanders Goes On 'Face the Nation' To Bash The Entire Democratic Party (VIDEO) | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Vermont’s U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders was quite blunt while appearing on CBS’s “Face the Nation” this Sunday morning, slamming the Democratic Party’s status quo. The host asked him about the “terms of discussion” inside the Democratic Party about the party’s way forward in light of the volatile way that things have been going lately. This …
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This is not just the Democratic failure but the willingness of the Republican Party to enable a complete corporate coup for rich industries that fund them to be their front group. This is also what the Democratic Party needs to be close.

Movement Weaving Communities

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Think about approaching community development this way.... Wow...this could be affordable and supper helpful... What if people crowd source community improvements. Members sign on a to do list to upgrade personal homes and shared streets and community spaces. sitting for elderly relief on your in your c,lose neighborhood. We could be  hiring our own neighbors to help the community out providing community support and keeping our money in those same communities or those close. By joining with other weaving community groups larger crowd sourcing pools could take on bigger joint efforts.

Justice Dept. debating charges against WikiLeaks members in revelations of diplomatic, CIA materials

Justice Dept. debating charges against WikiLeaks members in revelations of diplomatic, CIA materials | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Prosecutors are examining the 2010 leak of cables and military documents, as well as the more recent revelation of CIA cyber-tools.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
FBI calls out Wikileaks for exposing what it going on but doesn't feel State or corporate spying and sharing of data without a warrant or even just cause is a big issue. The current administration sees it as just a necessary way of doing business. This debate is happening after no debate by the justice department about allowing further and pretty much complete erosion of personal data privacy by this administration. I say you just can't have somethings both ways. I still think cornering Aaron Swartz to the point of suicide and locking away Manning and Hammond and other whistleblowers and activist hackers with excessive years played out poorly for winning over critical players in the cyber community. We can only hope other governments and international or state owned industries will face the same whistleblowing exposure... Maybe then after seeing were we all stand we will find a better direction. Certainly Wikileaks and others like them need to consider unintended dangers they may cause as much as possible and not become an extension of a problem or manipulated for one sided spins . We already have state run and corporate run media doing that mis-service across the world. Truth is good but telling your depressed relative the truth about every negative thing in that person's life might not bring the results one wishes. There is a cause and affect situation that is usually at play in most actions.

The Obamas face the paid-speaking circuit — and all the questions that come with it

The Obamas face the paid-speaking circuit — and all the questions that come with it | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The former president and first lady, who both gave debut speeches Thursday, could quickly earn millions.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
I can understand why people might pay big bucks for either Obama to speak. They are great at it...often funny or uplifting.... but why anyone would pay 270,000 to listen to Clinton that is highly questionable. Mainly the payments are a big deal if these same people return to government or attempt to lobby colleagues on behalf of those that pay them to speak.

Although optimists predicted that once he faced the reality of governing, Donald Trump would be thwarted and even tamed into a more conventional politician, and although the media scoff at Trump’s claims of unprecedented presidential accomplishment, for once Trump may almost be right when he boasts, with his customary mangling of English, “I don't think that there is a presidential period of time in the first 100 days where anyone has done nearly what we've been able to do.” Continue reading
