Using IT for Political Advocacy

February 27, 2017 Leave a comment


While many citizens choose Twitter and/or Facebook to advocate for important causes (or just vent), it’s definitely not the only weapon in the advocacy arsenal.

Countable and VoteSpotter are two apps enabling social advocates and political junkies to obtain info regarding issues and bills, so citizens can respond in real time to their elected officials.

We need everyone to fight for our Rights. Please contact your elected officials and tell them what’s important in your life. Remember, they work for you.

Do the elected officials in Washington stand with ordinary Americans – working families, children, the elderly, the poor – or will the extraordinary power of billionaire campaign contributors and Big Money prevail? The American people, by the millions, must send Congress the answer to that question. -Bernie Sanders




#Resist & Know Your Rights

Whether you are a Protester, Federal Employee, Immigrant or Refugee, #resist & know your rights with information from the ACLU.

Since there is more information for Immigrants and Refugees concerning their rights, you will find two flyers at the end of the post: one for rights at home and one when traveling.

Rights of Protesters:


Rights of Federal Employees:


Rights of Traveling Immigrants & Refugees:


Rights of Immigrants & Refugees at home:



#NoBanNoWall #Resist #Resistance #OurRevolution

Each time a man stands up for an ideal, or acts to improve the lot of others, or strikes out against injustice, he sends forth a tiny ripple of hope, and crossing each other from a million different centers of energy and daring, those ripples build a current that can sweep down the mightiest walls of oppression and resistance.

I’ll Give the DNC a Post-mortem

November 11, 2016 Leave a comment


The DNC believed their own BS, just like the Republicans did with Romney years ago, and we’re all paying for it now. While both parties stink of hubris, the DNC and its members put their own egos ahead of a candidate that was winning and could have beat Trump. In short, this election was an anti-establishment election, and Bernie Sanders was the candidate to support, not HRC.


I’m so disgusted by those who voted for Trump, but even more so for those Dems who ignored voter fraud and suppression by the Democrats. (For more, please visit Angry Activists VS Smug Sheep #DemExit.) Berners were vilified for not backing the Dems’ choice. Former president Clinton mocked #BernieOrBusters, stating “If I were them, I’d be screaming too because they know they will be toast by election day.”


Comedians, pundits, and other DNC followers jumped on the band wagon, attempting to beat Berners into submission. Warned countless times, the DNC ignored the will of its own party and showed disdain for Independents and those with No-party affiliation, many of whom left the DNC long ago because of its powerless strategies (but were willing to vote Dem for Bernie).

You reap what you sow, DNC. Hopefully, you’ll become a footnote in political history with the rise of #OnePersonOneVote, but if not, then I hope our new and powerful citizenry develop a party of and for the people.

So when you wonder why you lost, consider the disenfranchised voters that you lied to and about, and go from there. In fact, how about you just go–far, far away.


And please note, this election wasn’t about your precious party, it was about our country, and now we’ll be ruled by Republicans in all three branches of government. Do you remember how well that turned out the last time?


So I hope you’re reeling from the travesty you’ve wrought. You deserve it; we don’t.


While the DNC licks its karmic wounds, OurRevolution continues…

Listen to Kids & Learn Compassion

September 29, 2016 1 comment

It’s sad to see what is going on in the world; but if we want to know what to do, then listen to the kids. The children will show you the compassionate way to help others around the world as well as in our own neighborhoods.

While many American citizens are against accepting Syrian refugees, one little boy contacted President Obama, explaining how his family would adopt a little boy who lost his family. Six-year-old Alex stated, “We will give him a family and he will be our brother.”


Zianna Oliphant chose to address Charlotte’s City Council over the #BlackLivesMatter movement, a struggle impacting so many people. Zianna said:

“I feel like that we are treated differently than other people. I don’t like how we’re treated…We are black people, and we shouldn’t have to feel like this. We shouldn’t have to protest because y’all are treating us wrong. We do this because we need to, and we have rights. I’ve been born and raised in Charlotte, and I never felt this way till now. And I can’t stand how we’re treated. It’s a shame that our fathers and mothers are killed and we can’t see them anymore. It’s a shame that we have to go to their graveyard and bury them and we have tears and we shouldn’t have tears. We need our fathers and mothers to be by our side.” – Zianna Oliphant

So, you can choose to be compassionate. You can choose to make a difference. You can choose to be strong, caring and courageous, like these children, and we will have a better world for it. If you dare to care.

Love and compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive. -Dalai Lama
