Those veteran charities that trump the goblin donated the money to should be investigated

I wouldn't put it past trump to have those" charities" donate the money back to him as campaign donations.

My Mother passed away this afternoon

She was almost 94 in failing health. 3 weeks ago she was in the hospital with a bladder infection that went septic and her kidneys shut down. Her wonderful caregivers massaged her kidneys and basically were her nurses at the hospital. She was in the hospital for 6 days and I had her brought home under hospice. She seemed happy coming home and was eating baby food. Last night she refused food. Today, Her caregiver called me and told me I should come to her house. When I saw her I knew she was going to leave me. I held her hand and told her I loved her and it was ok if she moved on. About 45 minutes later she passed while I was holding her hand. It was such a peaceful spiritual moment. Since 2008 I was taking care of her financial affairs and had excellent caregivers living with her who became my family also. They treated my Mom like she was their baby and mother. Her years with them were happy. Up until May 1st we all went out for lunch which was sadly her last outing. After she passed they cleaned her up. Put on a clean change of clothes, put on her blue eyeshadow, lipstick and traced her eyebrows. She looked so beautiful. It wasn't until the mortuary came and took her that we all lost it. Yesterday was my 27th wedding anniversary and I feel somehow my mom hung on so I wouldn't associate her death the same day.

But the really strange thing was when I got the call, I left my house immediately about 4 blocks from my house I saw a car parked on the street that was the same car my parents had when my Dad passed. I made my mother sell it because it was a big car and wanted her to drive a smaller one. At that moment. I knew then I was going to lose my Mother. My Dad's car was coming for her I thought at that moment. My Mother is at peace tonight. She lived a good life and traveled the world. She was a gadfly fasihionista woman with a sparkling personality. And I was proud she was my Mother.

This is so sick. I live in SF and this is becoming common

My mother has a house she has been renting for over 20 years to a blind man. My sister is going to inherit this house. Her husband is threatening me to take over my mother's conservator ship because I won't raise the rent or improve the rental property. I spoke to the lawyers yesterday and they told me that my brother in law can't go after me. After reading this there is no way I am going to evict the blind man. Let my sister and husband be the villains when she inherits the house.

Americans for THE prosperity of The Koch Bros.

I saw one of those nasty commercials yesterday against a democratic candidate. Between now and November we should do everything in our power to illuminate and expose them for the kochroaches they are.

My bumper sticker and twitter ideas.

No infrastructure spending in the US- thanks Koch bros.
The tea party brought and paid for by the Koch bros.
Like that oil spill in your community? - thanks Koch bros
The GOP brought and paid for by the Koch bros.
Chris Christie, Ted Cruz,Scott Walker etc owned and operated by the Koch bros.
Tea party = Koch bros.
Undrinkable water in your community - thanks Koch bros.
Deadlock in DC - thanks Koch bros.
Scalia, Alito and Thomas the supreme ct judges owned by the Koch bros.
No immigration reform - thanks koch bros
No gun control bills - thanks Koch bros ( they give money to the NRA)
No increase in minimum wage - thanks Koch bros.
Alec - legislative lobbyists who write bills to take away our voting rights - thanks Koch bros.
Koch bros destroyers of American democracy
Koch bros. your republican parents old John birch society
Koch bros they won't stop until we are all serfs and they are the monarchy
Koch bros destroyer of American brains by propaganda
Koch bros liars and traitors
Koch bros destroyers of the American dream
Horrible commercials with annoying music - thanks Koch bros
No expansion of Medicare in republican states - thanks Koch bros
Making people so stupid they think and vote against their best interests - thank Koch bros

I spent a week in Arizona and saw the ads and dealt with the Koch heads recently and it frightened me to no end.

Mobilize, educate, tweet, facebook, instagram, email do anything you can to tun the bright light on these kochroaches and expose these mother f ers.

We have to stop the GOP from taking away from our future.

Corporate greed and why don't fast food restaurants pay more

I has been supporting the minimum wage workers who are bravely going out on strike so I decided to go over to Yahoo Finance and do some research on corporate profits

MCD Mcdonalds as of 6/30/13 had 1.87B in cash on their books so far this year they have had revenues of 27.79 B and a profit margin of 19.85%!

DPZ Dominos as of 6/30/13 had 40.84 Million in cash on their books and so far this year they had revenues of $1.75 B and a profit margin of 7.50%

Darden (owns Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Longhorn Steak and a bunch of other chains 2100 restaurants total) had 90.10 million in cash so far this year and revenues of 8.55B with a profit margin of 4.82% as of 5/26/13

YUM (Burger King)has 500 million cash on hand revenues of 13.15 B as of 6/29/13 a profit margin of 10.84% and 500 million in cash.

So these companies can afford to pay more than the minimum wage and they would make more if they paid their workers more who would go to other restaurants and spend their money.

Corporate greed at its worst. I no longer eat at chain fast food restaurants only small locally owned ones who are not publicly owned by Wall Street. And all these companies have been doing stock buybacks to make their companies more attractive to Wall Street. Sick

Something the right wing, Fox, Rush and their followers lack is love and compassion

I saw this quote today on the back of a bus:

"Love and Compassion are necessities, not luxuries. Without them humanity cannot survive".

Ironically the modern republican tea KKK party lack love and compassion and they are willing to take the rest of us down with their rhetoric that divides us. We must fight back hard against these haters and love everybody as fellow humans regardless of race, religion or nationality.

Two more bonus Dalai Lama quotes.

"When we feel love and kindness toward others, it not only makes others feel loved and cared for, but it also helps us develop inner happiness and peace". (Something those over at Fox will never feel)

" Love and compassion are the true religions to me. But to develop this. we do not need to believe in any religion"

Why is the mainstream media pushing the meme that Christie could beat Hillary in 2016?

Christie is disgusting in my opinion and too caustic and nasty to be President. But for the last two days I have been seeing articles saying Christie could be President and he could win in a landslide. It is some corporate fantasy I think to push Christie on us. So the republicans in Iowa think he could win well they also picked Bachman in the straw poll and she ended up dropping out. Yahoo news has been pushing for days now. I just don't see the corpulent abrasive Christie in the white house in 2016. He still has a (R) by his name and his attacks on teachers, women's rights, the poor and minorities will not win him many friends except in the extreme right who think he is a RINO. That party is really fractured, filled with ignorant haters who have lost their minds.


Koch Industries is Paying for Zimmerman's Legal Fees

Got this email today from a friend who lives in Maryland. I don't know if it is true or not but this is now being passed around a lot as I just got it from a second friend who lives in another part of the country. I heard on the news yesterday that the defense attorney took no fee and defended the killer for free. I have suspected someone with rich pockets who wanted the not guilty Zimmerman outcome to secretly fund his defense attorney. At first I thought it was the NRA now I get this email that says it was the Kochs. But whether it's true or not a lot of black people will now know not to buy Koch products. To which I say good.

From School Commissioner Anthony Hamilton, City of Baltimore Public Schools...

In the wake of the senseless killing of Trayvon Martin ... "The company known as Koch" which manufactures paper products is sponsoring and paying for Zimmerman's legal fees because they feel he had legal right to bare arms and shoot Trayvon we are asking that people everywhere ban together and pass this information on and not purchase any of the following items because your money will be paying for Zimmerman's lawyers and legal fees. Please do not purchase any of the following items: Angel soft toilet paper, Brawny paper towels, Dixie plates, bowls, napkins & cups, Mardi gras napkins and paper towels, Quilted northern toilet paper, Soft and gentle toilet paper, Sparkle napkins/paper towels, Vanity fair napkins.

Please Fwd this Very Important information to All of your Family and Friends.

I will vote in 2014 for no more children being killed like Treyvon and Sandy Hook .

If you are angry about Treyvon take the pledge today to vote against any politician who supports or voted for the stand you ground laws.

Vote for Treyvon so no more Treyvon are killed by racists like Zimmerman.

Take the pledge "I will vote in 2014 for no more children being killed". Sandy hook also.

Let's put the NRA and the right white wing republicans in their place.

I will vote for any politician who will advocate eliminating stand you ground laws and strengthing gun regulations laws. No more dead children black, white, brown or yellow.

Take the pledge.
