In just the first 100 days, Trump and Republicans in Congress have made it easier for employers to hide fatal injuries, blocked an increase in overtime pay, pushed a bill cutting pay for workers on federal infrastructure projects and making it harder for workers to organize, allowed Wall Street to exploit workers who plan to retire, pushed a fast food CEO for labor secretary, and gave federal contractors a free pass to endanger their workers.  

It is nothing less than a war on workers – and now, progressive champions Rep. Keith Ellison and Sen. Bernie Sanders have united Democrats to push a bold alternative. They recently introduced a bill to gradually raise the federal minimum wage to $15 per hour.

Every sign of support for this bill exposes Trump’s true agenda and shows that progressives have bold solutions, so we need to get behind it in a big way.

Tell Congress: Time for a $15 minimum wage. Click here to sign the petition.

While Trump was refusing to pay contractors and scamming students these last years, fast food workers have been organizing. They stood up to intimidation, surveillance, threats and the risk of losing their livelihood in order to “fight for $15.” Because of their bravery and determination, a $15 minimum wage has gone from being a progressive priority to an idea embraced by dozens of Democrats who have co-sponsored the bills in the House and Senate.

The average age of a minimum wage worker is 36. Many are over 55, and many have families. Raising the minimum wage does more than help teenagers working summer jobs – it would raise the wages of more than 40 million Americans. Women, African-Americans and Latinos would disproportionately benefit from raising the minimum wage, as structural racism and sexism leaves these Americans too often locked in jobs that pay less than $15 per hour.

By forcing giant companies to share their obscene profits instead of spending them on stock buybacks to benefit rich shareholders, a $15 minimum wage would boost the economy and fight income inequality. Today, a parent working full time at the minimum wage could still be living in poverty. That’s unacceptable, and that’s exactly what this bill would stop.

Trump pretended to support a minimum wage boost during the 2016 campaign, and now Democrats are calling his bluff. We need to stand alongside them.

Tell Congress: Time for a $15 minimum wage. Click here to sign the petition.

The $7.25 minimum wage today is worth less in real dollars than it was in 2009 when it was last raised. The Raise the Wage Act would immediately raise the wage to $9.25 and then steadily increase it to $15 by 2024, even as it institutes new protections for tipped workers and helps people with disabilities.

Trump likes to pose as a populist, but his meager successes in life have come from scamming people. Democrats need to drive home a bold, unapologetic pro-worker message to expose his hypocrisy – and to do that, we need to drum up grassroots support for bills like this one.

The cruel and heartless Republicans in the House of Representatives just voted to take away health care from tens of millions of Americans, including some of our nation’s most vulnerable people.

The party of death1 was so desperate to pass Trumpcare they added deadly amendments that put sick people’s, women’s and seniors’ lives at risk and called a vote before the Congressional Budget Office could review the bill.2 That is not how a functional Congress legislates good policies to serve the interests of our communities.

Already, several Republican senators have expressed concerns that the latest version of Trumpcare would not adequately cover people enrolled in Medicaid and fear that a rush in implementing the new law would leave their low-income constituents lost in the system.3 Republicans can only afford to lose two votes in the Senate, which is why we must keep pushing.

Tell the Senate: Block and resist Trumpcare and any other legislation that guts Medicare and Medicaid, defunds Planned Parenthood or takes health care away from people with pre-existing conditions. Click here to sign the petition.

Trumpcare is care that kills. The latest version would not only destroy Medicare and Medicaid and defund Planned Parenthood, it would also allow health insurance providers to discriminate against people with pre-existing conditions and refuse to cover essential health services.

Medicare, Medicaid and Planned Parenthood provide health care to tens of millions of people, but extreme right-wing Republicans have had their sights on dismantling our social safety net and defunding women’s health care providers for years. Trumpcare would steal from the Medicare trust fund to pay for huge tax breaks, hastening the program’s demise and paving the way to its privatization.4 It would also completely undermine Medicaid’s guarantee to provide care to low-income people by cutting funding to states, potentially forcing people to go without necessary care.5

Defunding Planned Parenthood would threaten the health and reproductive freedom of the more than 2.5 million people, most of whom are low-income, who rely on Planned Parenthood every year for life-saving health services like cancer screenings, birth control, STD testing and treatment, and abortion. Speak out now to help us raise a massive public outcry against this heartless legislation.

Tell the Senate: Block and resist Trumpcare and any other legislation that guts Medicare and Medicaid, defunds Planned Parenthood or takes health care away from people with pre-existing conditions. Click here to sign the petition.

Trumpcare’s newest provisions would allow health insurance providers to throw people with pre-existing conditions under the bus by charging more for their coverage and decreasing their quality of care.6 Under Trumpcare, surviving domestic violence, rape, Postpartum depression and giving birth are considered pre-existing conditions.7 The provisions would also allow insurers to remove health services like emergency room visits and maternity care from the list of essential benefits that they are required to cover.8

We expect Senate Democrats to resist Trumpcare. All we need now to win is two Senate Republicans of good conscience who already know that Trumpcare is a reckless attack on our health care to join the Democrats and block this cruel and heartless bill.

Click the link below to demand the Senate stop Trumpcare and any other legislation that guts Medicare and Medicaid and defunds Planned Parenthood.

To everyone who lives in America, I'm sure you all know about the presidential election going on. We have two major party candidates: Hilary Clinton for the Democrats and Donald Trump for the Republicans. I know back in January I posted a journal entry saying that I supported Bernie Sanders as our next president. But now that he's out of the running, it's up to Hilary Clinton to take down Donald Trump.

My fellow Americans, this election could decide our country's future. We can't afford to be placid right now! If you haven't voted in early voting yet, you have to make sure you vote on Election Day and vote for Hilary. Every vote counts! Just because Obama can't be have any more terms as president doesn't mean we can give up on America! Especially considering who Hilary Clinton is up against!!

Donald Trump is a bigoted, hypocritical, women-hating idiot who has no business even running for president! He hasn't paid taxes in decades (which helps our soldiers, veterans, schools and cities), yet he claims that he cares about our veterans?! And we've all heard all the awful things he's says about women at least once. Every time I do, I have to choke back my vomit! And what about the recent sexual allegations against him?

And he keeps saying he's going to deport all of our immigrants? Not only is he racist as hell for even thinking that, just HOW is he going to do it? Arrest anyone who wasn't born in America? That's just about half the country!!

And don't even get me started on his temperament. He throws tantrums that are worse than a child's! My two-year-old nephew behaves better than that! and he has absolutely no filter in his mouth. He just spews out his opinion without care or forethought! Imagine if he says the wrong thing to the wrong person. The whole country could suffer for it! And what if another world leader pisses him off enough? He'd be in control of our country's nuclear weapons? Need I say any more?

But Hilary Clinton actually cares about America. From the middle-class, women, immigrants, she cares and respects all of us! She wants to continue what President Barack Obama started eight years ago when he entered the Oval Office. But we need to give her that chance. And we can't do that if we decide not to vote!

As of now the election is pretty much neck-in-neck, but Hilary still has a chance in several key battleground states like Florida and North Carolina. But New Hampshire keeps fluctuating between the two candidates and it could go either way there. It's up to us! The future of our country is at stake! This is the final push and we need to give Hilary Clinton a chance a chance to get into the White House! Every vote counts! Go vote and spread the word: vote for Clinton!!

Calling all Americans!! This is a high-priority message for all of my fellow American artists!! As we all know, the 2016 presidential elections are well underway and things are heating up as both political parties are trying to pick just who will be their candidate. One of the Republican candidates is the big-time business magnate Donald Trump. If you ask me.... this cretin has absolutely NO RIGHT to even CONSIDER running for president!! He is nothing but an arrogant and racist bigot!! He's an overall horrible man with the personality of a pig who can't keep his mouth shut to save his life!! If he becomes president, if he says or does the wrong thing to the wrong people, I swear we'll be all doomed within a year of him coming into office!!

On the other side of the fence we have Bernie Sanders throwing in his bid for the Democratic slot. Now THIS is someone I get behind!! Bernie Sanders is a REAL politician who looks at the big picture. He's focusing on the REAL issues! He wants equality for ALL Americans: Middle-class, immigrants, homosexuals, anyone you can think of, he represents them! Bernie Sanders isn't in this for the money, the perks, the power or the press. He's in this so he can make a difference and help rebuild our country and make life better for all of us! If you ask me, he's the right choice for our leader. President Barack Obama has done what he can in his 8-year term and it's working! But we need someone to keep it going if we want things to really get better! And it starts now!

Here's a link to a journal entry for a fellow artist that I follow who is also a Bernie Sanders supporter. She goes into great detail about this issue and it's worth taking a moment to read:

<da:thumb id="579915823"/>

Pass this message on my fellow Americans!! If we work together, we can make sure that we get the right man to be our leader! We did it for President Obama four years ago and we can do it for Bernie Sanders!! Power to the people!!

If any of you are fans of both Legend of Korra and My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic, have you ever wondered what it would be like if characters from both shows ever met? What would it be like if the stories were intertwined somehow? It's pretty hard to think about considering how different the two shows are. Or are they...?

What if I told you that the two shows aren't as different as they seem? What if there was someone who had managed to merge the two shows? That someone had written a crossover with both Legend of Korra and My Little Pony? Think I'm pulling your leg? I'm happy to say.... I'm not. One writer has achieved this and not only has written a crossover, but an entire SAGA merging together My Little Pony and Legend of Korra. And here she is: :iconmaggiesheartlove:

This amazing writer has gone above and BEYOND in bringing this saga to life! The details, the storyline, and especially the way the characters interact with each other feels like she's gone over everything with a fine-toothed comb before posting. Maggie has created a masterpiece of a saga and she deserves to have her hard work recognized. And not just the saga itself! She's also created art pieces right here on deviantArt and videos on her YouTube account to help spread the word about The Little Pony Legend. Here are the links to her accounts:

Just WHAT is this world coming too?! Wonder what's up? Here's the story:

On the 2nd anniversary of the shootings in Tucson, Arizona, the NRA announces a national Gun Appreciation Day. But you won't believe when this event is scheduled...

On the day our nation remembers the life and service of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., a leader committed to non-violence. The National Rifle Association has organized a Gun Appreciation Day on the very day we come together and honor an American hero, a leader who was tragically assassinated by a rifle's bullet!! Can you believe that?! I can't!!

America needs sensible gun laws that protect law abiding citizens from those who are deemed criminally or mentally unfit to possess firearms. Our leaders are coming together to solve this crisis of gun violence. It's time the NRA offered real solutions and stopped playing politics.

Here's a link to a petition protesting this blasphemy.

signon.org/sign/stop-the-nras-…

We need to send a message to these idiots. It's time to put an end to gun violence, one step at a time! Enough people have died because of gun violence!

Who's with me??!!
