Family dinner lesson....sad.

At our last family dinner my grandson, Liam (8), was practicing “hit the ground and play dead” if he hears gunfire at school. We also emphasized listening to what his teacher, principal, etc. advise, if a situation presents itself.

We usually just play board games....

Randy Bryce, Randy Bryce, Randy Bryce!

A year ago, I was hanging off the side of what would become the new Northwestern Mutual building in downtown Milwaukee.

Even the most experienced ironworkers get nervous when you're hundreds or thousands of feet up on a skyscraper, but you trust your safety gear, you trust your team, and you do the job.

I feel the same way about this campaign.

Deciding to go up against the Speaker of the House was hard. I knew they'd throw everything at me. I knew it would be personal. And, there are still days when it feels like just too much. But then I think about this incredible team we've built, and I know we can get the job done.

But, in just the first two months of this year, YOU helped us raise $1.5 million, an average donation of just around twenty bucks coming from thousands of people.

That's incredible. That's how we fight back against Paul Ryan and his allies. We have a lot more to do, but this is how we create a country that works for working people.

If I'm elected, I promise I'll never stop fighting for you, no matter how hard it is, because nothing in Washington D.C. is as hard as what our families are going through here at home. I think it's about time we had a representative who remembers that.

From the bottom of my heart, thank you.

Love and miss these two.....

An AR-15 is a killing machine

Let's stop the debate (currently being the focus on social media) of what the correct word is to describe it, that's just semantics plain and simple.

It's called a killing machine......period!

David Bowie nails it

"And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They're quite aware of what they're going through"

--David Bowie, Changes


"Where have all the Children Gone"




No words......

Curious...

Why are we not hearing college students support for high school students in the wake of the FL school shooting? They lived through many more shootings than these high schoolers and yet...crickets.

Am I missing something? Are they planning to march as well?

I welcome any info I may have missed.
