The REAL Bottom Line on Michigan's Proposal 1 of 2015: Just Say NO!

"Over course of the last month, there has been plenty of Mudslinging in the Michigan Proposal 1 of 2015 debate.

From large pieces of asphalt being smashed into the window of a "mock" school bus, paid for at some point or the other by taxpayers dollars. To the drumbeat of some Democrats calling other Democrats and Progressives strongly against Proposal 1 "Teabaggers".

Also, confusing some voters by using a Ex-Senator from Michigan - Carl Levin in a commercial supporting of Proposal 1 claiming he is the current Senator from Michigan."

The Most Ineffective Strategy To Elect Hillary.....Attack Bernie Sanders and his Supporters

This post will be kept short and to the point.

There are many Progressives who are either Democrats or Left-lending Independents that are too proud Senator Bernie Sanders is giving it a go to run for President.

He has every right considering Senator Sanders has stood with the Middle and Lower Classes in regards to sound economic policy nearly every time.

Many Progressives admire Bernie who does not take corporate, lobbyist or Wall Street "Quid Per Quo" money to turn around and support a job killing trade policy called the TPP.

Senator Sanders Caucasus with Democrats, however, is not afraid or timid to call out Democrats when their potential votes, policy or politico speak are with the 10% instead of 90% of folks who are not ultra-rich, have tax havens off-shore or who owe a "political favor" to those making big dollars (by cheating the rest of us) on Wall Street.

Yet, SOME not all but SOME Hillary Clinton supporters -- feel threaten by Senator Sanders running for President. So much so, they are calling him Ralph Nader or worse a spoiler candidate.

And others are going as far to nearly label Progressives of both Democratic and Independent Left Lending ties -- Junior Teabaggers for supporting a Senator Sanders Presidential Candidacy.

Here are the raw facts: Keep this Modus Operandi up -- i.e. Attacking Bernie Sanders as Ralph Nader II -- and watch your candidate of choice LOSE come the first Tuesday in November of 2016.


Unjust attacks and lies on Senator Sanders will do NOTHING but encourage those who MIGHT consider voting for Hillary Clinton, if Bernie Sanders cannot win or secure the Democratic Nomination to -- JUST STAY HOME. Or worst, skip right pass the ballot where voting for President is a option.

So, for those Ultra-Pro Hillary -- allow Bernie to run without deploying a scorched earth, PUMA style 2015/2016 attack on Senator Sanders. No one wins by using this highly ineffective strategy -- except possibly a Republican -- which neither side should NOT want.

The Truth on Proposal 1 & What It Will and Will Not Do

The Best Explanation Period of What Proposal 1 of 2015 will and will not do. After one hears this questions will form why a complex Proposal such as this will be brought before the Michigan Populace for a vote. Don't we pay Legislators in Lansing to work out complex and detailed mess like this?

By the way, we will be interviewing Representative Ray Franz (R) Exclusively on Independent Underground News & Talk/IU Radio LIVE Program TODAY -- Tuesday, April 14, 2015 (TONIGHT) at 9pm ET. ‪#?Bookmark‬ to listen in here: http://j.mp/IURL41415

Hillary Clinton’s Progressive Problem

"Now that it is official that Hillary Clinton is running for President, it is time to ask piercing questions. This announcement came as expected, so there is not much in the way of excitement around it. Democrats for the most part are expected to fall in line.

Already, this early the browbeating has begun, at least directed at the progressives that still orbit around the Democratic Party. Instead of focusing on continuing to apply pressure on varying progressive causes, the emerging narrative is to focus on who is most electable.

There are a few problems with that strategy. It subverts the nascent progressive strides that are being made, particularly when it comes to the living wage movement.

The Clinton’s who are neoliberals, here and abroad, are fundamentally at odds with the emerging voices around labor issues and standard of living for working people. TPP ring a bell to anyone?

Furthermore, as the establishment candidate, Hilary Clinton has little to say about the aftermath of Ferguson and the issue of police brutality. How she will get that base of support behind her, should be a cause of concern for Democratic strategists. But, that is their concern, not that of the movements.

For example, the Black Lives Matter movement which has sprung up in the second term of President Obama. It’s not up to the movement or its supporters to figure out a way for the Clinton candidacy the capture their thunder, so to speak."

Where is the Love for Stoni and Stephen? RIP Little Angels

"This post will not be a "feel good" let us all hug and sing kumbaya from the rooftops moment in time. Instead, this post will be a bit of truth about our so-called American society and its complete and utter failure to care two for poor African-American kids found in a freezer three years after their untimely and torture filled deaths.

The children - Stoni Ann Blair and Stephen Berry, and this is only a part of their story.

Where is the love? There is a popular R & B song by this name written in 1972 and sung by Artists Roberta Flack and the late great Donny Hathaway which won a Grammy. A modern day version was placed in rotation by the Black Eyes Peas in 2003.

Important lines from the lyrics of The Black Eyes Peas Song:

People killin', people dyin'
Children hurt and you hear them cryin'
Can you practice what you preach?
Or would you turn the other cheek?
Father, Father, Father help us
Send some guidance from above
'Cause people got me, got me questionin'
Where is the love (Love)

Stoni Blair and Stephen Berry died. It is estimated Stoni and Stephen's deaths occurred upwards of three years ago. In a deep freezer which sat in the entryway of their Mother's Apartment complex ironically named The Martin Luther King Apartment homes.

MLK is crying tears from heaven to what occurred to Stoni and Stephen in a place named after this great civil rights leader.

Where is the Love? How exactly did these children end up in a freezer, dead. Stoni and Stephen's deranged biological Mother Mitchelle Blair put them there."
