Christmas came early for Keith.

How am I going to make it through another year

of this BS. I just had my 19th nervous breakdown.

Universal basic income will begin in Stockton, CA.

It is an economic experiment and has been planned for a while but now will begin by giving all residents a basic wage with no strings attached.

You beat me to it!

Rose McGowan's opening speech at Women's Convention

was a strong and powerful opener.

MSNBC just said that Senator Hatch may also retire.

It isn't definite however.

How do the prices vary from state to state?

In legalized states what are the average prices for strains, amounts, sales tax, etc.? How much have the state governments' revenue increased due to the legalization? Also, have the number of overall arrests in states with legalized pot changed?

Cambridge Analytica and the 45 campaign

as well as Facebook, Twitter, etc.

If you can't make it to the Women's Convention this weekend

you can see it on Facebook. Here is an email I received today with convention info.....

The Women’s Convention starts tomorrow! Throughout the weekend, we’ll be covering some of the most pressing issues facing women today, like:

The importance of women in office and involved in policy, featuring electeds like Senators Kirsten Gillibrand, Amy Klobuchar and Debbie Stabenow, and Representatives Maxine Waters, Brenda Lawrence and Debbie Dingell.
The crisis of sexual violence, featuring women like #MeToo founder Tarana Burke, Rose McGowan, Amber Tamblyn and YoNasDa Lonewolf.
Disability justice as the forefront of the women’s movement, featuring activists Rebecca Cokley, Vilissa Thompson, Colleen Flanagan, Mia Ives-Rublee and more.
Immigrant rights, featuring leaders in the struggle like Erika Andiola, Greisa Martinez  and Faiza N. Ali.
Healthcare and reproductive justice policy, featuring speakers from ADAPT, Planned Parenthood, Our Revolution, SisterSong, National Latina Institute for Reproductive Health and more.
Partner tracks with breakout sessions on reproductive rights, running for office, and protecting our planet and its people, from Planned Parenthood Action Fund, Emily’s List and National Resource Defense Council Action Fund.
Supporting young leaders and youth organizing, featuring superstars like Liz Plank and Mari Copeny (aka Little Miss Flint)!
…And so much more. If you haven’t looked through the full schedule, check it out here. And if you can’t make it to the convention, we’ll be livestreaming various parts of the program via the Women’s March Facebook page and encouraging attendees to livestream workshops they attend.
We’ve also created The Women’s Convention app, available at the App Store and Google Play tomorrow. Download the app to tune into convention programming—from speaker bios to information about local Detroit activism.

Then there’s the Social Justice Concert, featuring Melanie Fiona, Alice Smith, V. Bozeman, Jessica Care Moore, feminist DJs from the Seraphine Collective, Detroit’s BombaRica and Women’s March’s very own Resistance Revival Chorus! Concert tickets are included in the Women’s Convention registration package, but you can still attend the concert if you aren’t coming to the conference! If you’re in the Detroit area, purchase tickets for the Social Justice Concert here.

We are so excited to move forward together, to show once again that the rise of the woman IS the rise of the nation. Whether or not you can join us in Detroit, follow Women’s March on all social media platforms to stay up-to-date throughout the weekend!

I came across this ad and thought it was fake,

now I can't stop laughing since it IS supposed to be serious (3 years old but more valid now than then).
You can purchase these for Christmas gifts for $15...what a deal and a fashion statement!
