“Need Help? Call the Democrats!”
All the things being referred to in the episode and comments come under the umbrella of "quality of life." Why can't we use those words?... Why can't we own that term?
Turkeys, warm coats, smiling, tutoring, etc, etc, etc.... all of this speaks to what WE all contribute to our quality of life. And I understand we want this linked to that "Batman signal in the sky.:" This is really good stuff! .. It gets us ON target... and now we need is to point to the bullseye -- to be aware of what that point is. (I've spent decades on this...)
When we first moved to Georgia, I learned that a child born into poverty here has 90% odds of remaining in poverty through the rest of their lives. It's this systemic thing that has to be confronted.
Let's not forget that electing more Democrats is a MEANS to an end, never the end in itself. Shalom.
I love you, Michael Moore. You are a liberation theologist. A real one....
I am really enjoying these “blue dots.” I have also recently watched Fahrenheit 9/11 and Bowling for Columbine. I have joined the “fan base” who appreciates the work you do. I knew Bush was lying. I stood in the cold dark November rain for 2 hours when I lived in Ohio, just so I could vote against him. That was the last time I voted in person. Thanks again Mike.
EXACTLY‼️PERFECTLY SAID‼️ Don’t start with POLITICS ‼️
Today's short message was FULL of wonderful suggestions. I love the idea. That will certainly get people talking. It put the message into workable practice. What a wonderful world this would be if we start witih just the simple things.
Michael, I’m enjoying your 12 days! People are always rushing to do their own thing! As a suggestion, when you’re at the market, slowdown and look for someone who needs a helping hand! Leave the door open for someone behind you, have a smile on your face as you’re shopping, and ask if an elderly person needs help or just say how are you! I have asked for help, with lifting something heavy, people are always happy to help!!
Have a great day!!💕
George Will, in an op-ed in the Washington Post today, wrote about the importance of mid-western values. Commenters dog-piled him, pointing out there are folks with Trump flags flying in their yards, narrow minded and overtly racist. They accused Will of wanting a time machine to travel back to a time that never actually was.
An Ohio Democrat, I defended the people of my state. Despite our differences THERE IS such a thing as Midwestern values. We work hard and play hard. Grumble about taxes, but pass fire, police, school and library levies. My town hosted the Gay Olympics and we were told we were the friendliest and most welcoming of any town they'd visited.
As neighbors, we mind our own business. Until someone needs help. Then everyone jumps in to help. Everyone. A guy in a MAGA hat clearing snow from the walk of a couple flying a pride flag. Three Black men mowing an elderly white lady's lawn every week. Midwestern values are a real thing that transcend differences.
I believe this is also an American value. We are going to restore dignity and bipartisan cooperation in our government one vote at a time.
To all the Oath Kreepers in the world. We have you, 40,000 of you on an email chain snagged by the FBI. This a list of 40,000 insurrectionists and persons of aid and comfort. None can hold any office!
Michael, you give me hope. You are a beacon calling us together. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
Our community does a lot of this, maybe because we are mostly democrats. Many are retired, wealthy and are church going and so are used to giving charity.
Also the Nextdoor app has all these kind of asks where people step up and help.
How do people in blue areas help?
Actually, the Democratic Party is attracting more affluent people these days. Pew Research. Blue areas are all Skewing wealthier. A huge shift in the paradigm for the country. It will be college education.
I am going to bring up some of your suggestions at our next Women's Democratic Club meeting.
We already do a lot of community charity work. We provide food, school supplies, etc. to help those in need.
Michael, you are freaking brilliant! You are a genius. 967 1111...got it!
Kindness and love and humanity. The most important things of all! Yes!! ❤️
Woke up this morning, thanking the Almighty for another day to try to get it right. Scanned the news and started to reflect on this final day of 2022.
Today, I am especially thankful that, when my obituary is written, I will not be referred to as "G-d's Rottweiler."
40,000 Oath Kreepers Identified by FBI. How do so describe the joy. Etta help me out!
