People Power Possibilities

Idea

Students from Florida's Stoneman Douglas High School are lobbying lawmakers in their state capital for a showdown over gun control.

In the wake of the deadly shooting that claimed 17 lives at the Parkland, Fla., school, busloads of survivors arrived in Tallahassee for a rally and meetings with lawmakers.

The Russians Are Here

Problem

When I was a kid in Cuba, Russia took over with Castro's government support, his admiration, and assistance. Then I was welcomed with open arms in this great nation and watched "The Russians are Coming" - They're already here and making themselves at home. https://youtu.be/XBOQdkIu6fM

The fear is not that they're already in the US, but they are working while our administration appears to give the all clear. When has the president said anything negative about Vladimir Putin or The Russians?

Campus Free Speech

Issue

As students become more vocal because they feel powerless and overlooked, free speech issues continue to heat up at schools throughout America and they will not be silenced.

The US Constitution First Amendment protects speech no matter how offensive its content. Restrictions on a speech by public colleges and universities amount to government censorship, in violation of the Constitution.

These restrictions deprive students of their right to invite speech they wish to hear, debate speech with which they disagree, and protest speech they find bigoted or offensive.

Ignore Him America

Solution

We’re strong enough to ignore his Tweets.

Ignore him because he only cares about Vladimir.

Ignore him because he’s so bad even on his Bigly good days.

Ignore him because all he's doing is talking and nothing has come of it.

Ignore him can’t do his job, so good luck getting him to do anything else.

Ignore him because this is not a golf game and Tweets shows a sense of insecurity in him.

Ignore him because you need someone who is going to make you better not make your life worse.

Real Chief Consoler

Attraction

2018 is a beautiful year in the neighborhood for fans of Mr. Rogers. Beloved children's show Mister Rogers' Neighborhood celebrates its 50th anniversary on PBS.

Fred McFeely Rogers was a loved American TV personality, a musician, puppeteer, writer, producer, a Presbyterian minister, and a real chief consoler. He gave an expression of care every day to each child.

President's Fray

Announcement
Images: 

Have we lost his signal just in time for this day? Who uses Twitter to spread fake information playing down the impact of a serious national delay? Look at the facts. Could it be more clear that he more interested in covering his rear than protecting all Americans here?

Who promises much and delivers little, and who is turning his back while America is under attack? Who's almost 73, but not grown up enough to show interest in you and me?

The Hate Boat

Other

Americans are learning that a rotten apple can ruin the bunch. A bad individual among many good ones, and especially one will spoils the group.

This expression is a shortening of the proverb a rotten apple spoils the barrel, coming from a 14th-century Latin proverb translated as "The rotten apple injures its neighbors." The allusion in this idiom is to the spread of mold or other diseases from one apple to the rest. In English, the first recorded use was in Benjamin Franklin's Poor Richard's Almanack back in 1736.

And it still applies today in politics as in one person whose own words and actions negatively impact an entire group of people, a nation and everywhere, including the high seas. This was no love boat, but a hated cruise from hell.

Never Again

Idea

As a nonprofit and academic administrator, I wonder if a nationwide academic movement finally shakes Congress out of its stupor? The USA appears incapable of solving a scourge that exists nowhere else on earth.

While The NRA stuffs millions into the pockets of our elected officials, why does America stan idle while many are slaughtered by criminals using assault weapons? How many more lives will be lost, leaving loved ones devastated and too many broken dreams before our so-called leadership put a stop to the madness?

Elected vs Selected

Other

An unqualified individual can be elected without the popular vote. We have seen this time and again in our democracy. When someone is selected, it usually signifies they're the very best person available for the job.

Donald John Trump was born June 14, 1946, and 70 years later won the election while losing the popular vote. However, he currently is the 45th and current President of the United States. #POTUS has been in office since January 20, 2017. Before entering politics, he was a businessman and became famous by an NBC TV Show.
