Appreciating Aaron | Participatory Politics Foundation | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it

I had the privilege of knowing Aaron Swartz, who passed away yesterday, over the past seven years. He was a truly incredible person, and his work was inspirational to me personally and our non-profit PPF’s mission – and that of our sibling organizations, the Participatory Culture Foundation and Fight For the Future. Aaron was sui generis for real.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Historical! Trump and the GOP makes history around the globe by for the first time making America selfish and less respected now that our self identified “Christian” Right wing has embraced the “self first” morality of Ayn Rand. The Koch and friends twisted version of Ayn’s objectivism/libertarian morality has consumed what was once Republican and now Republican simply does not exist..... them are sort of like the walking dead... luckily the rest of the world is standing up against Ayn’s influences. We need to build our American resistance to this morality as well to gain respect of the world or even self respect. Trump and the GOP have a seriously flawed plan for our society.

To find an equivalent comparison of mass congressional resignations, historians say you'd have to go back to the Civil War.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Sorry Folks! I guess some women get excited easier than others but butt grabbing and sloppy unwanted kissing just doesn’t rise to the level of assault to me. That falls in my categories of inexperienced want to be lovers, clumsy lovers, or just plain clumsy and uncoordinated, yucky, smack bait or coffee spill “opps I didn’t see you there”... sorry.... and you have to do it to the same person more than once or twice to hit those categories. Franken must be some butt grabber to for a gal to remember that was more than a day or two.I personally think an apology and the embarrassment of the public yuk reaction is punishment enough. Now genitalia grabbing and firing or otherwise harming careers a person’s future or advancing that person’s future will due to sexual denies or acceptance and child seduction is another issue all together. They should be fired. RExtramarital affairs out side of the workplaces also fit in the categories of poor character and questionable leadership.character even if they are not illegal any

House passes bill loosening gun restrictions

House passes bill loosening gun restrictions | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The House of Representatives approved legislation Wednesday loosening gun regulations and allowing those with permits to carry concealed weapons to legally travel with those firearms to other states, a top priority of the National Rifle Association.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This sounds like if you see someone from a Republican family it is wise to assume anyone of them are likely armed and dangerous. You should not allow children to go around their kids without checking to see if their guns are safely locked. Best to shoot first if you spot one someone from a known GOP family and ask questions later.
I guess this will make the future GOP house ball games ever more exciting. We might just get to watch first hand a modern version of the OK Coral. The game could could even be reactive friendly fire over a disputed Home run... who knows....
For the record.....Any crooks looking for a gun will know who to sneak up on to get one. I have decided no party affiliation is best from now on. Note to all crooks Donald has given all the trickle down riches to Republicans according to the most right wing supporters you will find money at their house

Trump population control is Let them be born than watch them be die or be owned, indebted and controlled by the rich. This little Billionaire kisses up to Koch money. The whinny Koch’s held a grudge on the Republican Party for electing Regan so they covertly went about a coup of Regans party.

Poll: Percentage of Americans Identifying As Republican Has Dropped Since Trump Won

Poll: Percentage of Americans Identifying As Republican Has Dropped Since Trump Won | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The biggest dip is among white women, the Gallup survey found.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Why stay with a party that undermines Your personal power, wealth, health, voice, choice and the well being of your family? The underlying morality of the GOP and their embracing & adoration of the morality of Ayn Rand always places the GOP firmly into anti-Christian self first morality which means the GOP leaves those that struggle to struggle more. The first to feel that are women often raising families alone, minority groups, the poor, the sick and their families. The GOP wins votes by falsely claiming abortion is stopped by making it illegal. Abortion was ironically made legal to a large degree to save lives.... The lives that don’t matter to the GOP agenda... it was women getting abortions along with their babies. The clinics that perform abortions legally offer extended services including help with safety staying pregnant, avoiding pregnancy and even assisting with adoption if that is what a women chooses. This is what women stand to loose supporting and party that does not represent them or look after their interest. The only real choice the GOP leaves a woman to avoid pregnancy is to abstain and have nothing to do with a man sexually .... ever. I don’t think that plan will work. The GOP broader agenda undermines family interest like minimum wage, family leave, paid sick or pregnancy leave, medical care for all in the family and education al options, The GOP are proving their loyalty to the wealthy they assume might drop some serious crumbs off their wealthy table or some how have some wish to share their wealth with others������������ while there is absolutely no evidence of that plan and tons of evidence our oligarchst push an agenda that is completely Ky opposite.

Interesting... You got to admire a role model for the world like this.... Who wouldn’t?” Mexicans and others are no longer coming through our borders but is that because of the Wall threat or is that because Trump in his mind owns Americans like he owns Miss Universe and Miss America? He thinks he is our CEO but declares when he was paid millions as a CEO he wasn’t in charge.... You got to wonder how that works?
