Jobs that aren't coming back are just getting warmed up. so, is this Earthly experience intended to be for machines or for humans? If you rally for the home team then just know we need jobs to feed our very existence. Machines don't.

Yall Politics | Lt. Gov Tate Reeves speaks to ALEC in Chicago after being introduced by Steve Seale

Mississippi is open for business and seeing success in attracting more jobs, Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves told a crowd of legislators from around the country at the 40th Annual Meeting of the American Legislative Exchange Council. Lt. Gov. Reeves recounted legislative successes to grow businesses and reform education at the closing lunch with economist Dr. Arthur Laffer, who was member of President Reagan’s Economic Policy Advisory Board. Because Lt. Gov. Reeves was a featured speaker, ALEC funded his trip, and no taxpayer dollars were spent. Former Florida Gov. Jeb Bush, Oklahoma Gov. Mary Fallin and Iowa Gov. Terry Branstad also…
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Do you remember Voting for ALEC Billionaires to rule your State or nation or globe for that matter?....Their annual closed meeting isn't our elected government houses and we can't afford their membership rates...nor did we elect our policy makers to represent us there in private meetings away from the press open coverage and open public debate.,. Here are a few of ALEC's friends in Mississippi and there are many more...ALEC watch this group of corrupters in our policy making and please vote them out with your time, sharing the word and money for those with those strings or ALEC agenda. Cut business ties with their companies and do not approve business charters in your community....They would do no less to undermine your power so do not feel guilty!

WHO WILL RULE YOU????? ALEC UNLESS you tell you policy officials to cease these corrupt affiliation or be voted out. Also tell business that support this corruption you will cease to conduct business with them.....Yes ALEC is the most successful corruption group but there are more...You will know these corrupting groups by their agendas that normally increase their wealth, power and their  influence while undermining other citizens, workers, lower and middle class families and local community protections and influence over environmental safety , schools, and labor issues among other things. .

Breaking: Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker will address ALEC's annual meeting in San Diego this July. He's an ALEC alum who has pushed ALEC's agenda into law in the state.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

ALEC  has got their corrupting paws on policy makers of even tiny cities of 3,000. Watch out for their puppets! You can tell who their puppets are by their policy pushes once you become familiar with the ALEC agenda. ALEC is close to owning the Republican Party and they need to rename that party "ALEC PARTY" for billionaires members only and their policy puppets.

John Kasich: ‘Abolish all teachers' lounges'

John Kasich: ‘Abolish all teachers' lounges' | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
LONDONDERRY, N.H. — While some Republicans have called for abolishing the federal Education Department, Ohio Gov. John Kasich on Wednesday set his sights on a smaller target: the teachers’lounge. At an education forum here featuring several GOP presidential contenders, Kasich offered many kind words for teachers and teachers unions, but...
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

OK so the faculty rest rooms are usually in the lounge, as are the copy machines, and other teacher shared work resources...not to mention this is where many teachers are luck enough to get a duty free 20 to 30 minute lunch break......We need to have them install these type of perks for the Ohio Governor at the gas station closest to his office and take away his chair too if he thinks teachers don't need a lounge. This shows how out of touch he is with what teaching is all about. I guess the state should give all teachers in Ohio all these requirements right inside each classroom.
