Campaign 2016 ♥ A Political, Revolution!

American's Will Elect; the 45th, President of the United States on November 8, 2016.

We Have; The Honor, Of Voting For, The First Woman President! 

To plagiarize; Vice Pres Joe Biden, “That’s; A, Very, Big Deal!

Low; Democratic Voter Turnout, is what, the problem is. 


This Is More; Than, Just, The Presidential Election.
It’s Time; To, Revolutionize, Our US Political System.
Now, Is Our Chance!
We; Have To, Elect, A Democratic Congress.

Turn; Congress, Blue.
It could be done.
We Can, Win!
To plagiarize; Pres, Yes, We Can! “ But Only, If We, All, Vote!

Trump’s candidacy; a good motivator, to get out the vote.
Thanks to; “the donald” and “his mouth,” I’ll give his side-kick Christie, a little credit, for that, too.

Vote against trump, while there, ensure, that, we install, a Democratic Congress.
* Trump acts so outrageous; because, it’s, a diversion, to keep us focused on him and not, the fact, that 88%, of the Seats in Congress (all his associates and cronies), are up for re-election.

Atlantic City Hospitality Workers Are On Strike. Here’s Why. by Amy McKeever photos by Amy McKeever Jul 14 2016

Looks like; trump’s, having, a little, trouble
Union, gets the blame, as always.

Taj Mahal; employees and workers, in all the Casinos and everywhere in Atlantic City, work hard. “Service Work.” Fast paced and demanding.

I know Atlantic City well. My Parents and I, used to go to Atlantic City all the time when I was young, (1950's and 60's). I had Cousins who lived there.

My Cousin Roy and I; used to ride on the Rolling Chairs, together every time I visited. Atlantic City's-Rolling Chairs

Roy was one of the nicest young people I've ever met. He was grown up when he was 11. Roy didn't fight with a girl the way most boys did.

Everyone on the boardwalk knew and loved, my Cousin Roy, he used to run errands for them all.

We had such a good time on the Rolling Chairs and I remember the middle aged African American Men; who used to push them, from one end of the Boardwalk to the other! African-American Workers Crucial To Atlantic City's Rise by Kathleen O'Brien/The Star-Ledger February 24 2012 Real African American Heroes

The Atlantic City Boardwalk; was, so beautiful, back then! 

I remember; the Steel Pier and Salt Water Taffy. Ripley's museum on the Steel Pier, The Diving Horse, cotton candy, candy apples and so much more.

The Planters Peanut Store, Mr Peanut walking around. The pigeons who would eat peanuts out of your hand.

A little; Taylor’s Pork Roll, Stand, on the boardwalk, where we would sometimes eat Taylor’s Ham sandwiches and tea, for breakfast. I still remember what a nice man owned it.

But riding on the rolling chairs; with my Cousin Roy, was the best!
These are my memories of Atlantic City.

I have; always, loved Atlantic City. I want to see it rebuilt, to its former glory. 
New Jersey Atlantic County -Atlantic City

When voting on; legalized gambling, The people in NJ were told that the Casinos were going to restore Atlantic City. We were also told; that tax revenues, from the Casinos, were going to, help, our public schools. 

Neither happened.

I went to; Atlantic City, once, after the Casino’s opened. I’m not a gambler. Never even think, to buy a dollar ticket.

I’ve seen the waitresses; carrying those, huge, drink trays. Running;  back and forth, to bring players, drinks. Wouldn’t want to do that all night.

I wouldn’t want to; have to, continually, change sheets on those, heavy, king size beds, for a job. Or, clean hotel rooms and  bathrooms. Just being exposed to all those cleaning chemicals, they should get hazard pay! IMO.

How about; the guys, who have to, constantly move all those heavy coins around? Re-stocking the slot machines. 

Vacuuming the Casino alone, must take a couple of hours.

Many people; all types of workers, keep Atlantic City and the Taj Mahal, operating. Something trump never considered. 

Trump; probably thinks, when he loses, he can say, “aw come on, I threw the race/election. I was working for you guys, all along.” 

But; trump’s, still gonna have, to do, a lot of explaining, to all the people, he insulted.
Trump’s, hedging his bets. He figures he can get away with it.

Divestment From Fossil Fuel Industry, An Excellent Idea!

World Movement To Divest From Fossil Fuels 
Institutions; immediately freeze any new investment in fossil fuel companies, and divest from direct ownership and any co-mingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years.

Educational and religious institutions, city and state governments, and other institutions that serve the public good should divest from fossil fuels. 200 publicly-traded companies hold the vast majority of listed coal, oil and gas reserves. Those are the companies, to divest from. (See link above, for more info).

Momentum on Fossil Fuel Divestment Grows As Harvard Professors, Desmond Tutu Call For Action
South African Archbishop Desmond Tutu called for an anti-apartheid-style boycott and disinvestment campaign against the industry for its role in driving climate change. Meanwhile, nearly 100 members of the faculty at Harvard University released an open letter calling on the Ivy League school to sell off its interests in oil, gas and coal companies.

Workbook For Feeding America's Hungry

15.5 Million Children-20.9% Experience Food Insecurity

The business sector; including farmers, food manufacturers, wholesalers, retailers, and others, also plays an instrumental role in battling hunger. 

By donating food and transportation and promoting volunteerism, businesses of all sizes help put food on the tables of families in need. 

While businesses already make substantial contributions to fight hunger, improved public policies; particularly passage of the Good Samaritan Hunger Relief Tax Incentives Act. will promote even greater business participation in this effort.

One of the most important ways you can get involved in Feeding America is by becoming a hunger advocate.

Take Action Now!
Advocacy is critical to fighting hunger, and becoming a hunger advocate offers many ways to become active not only in important public policy issues of the day, but also within your community.

Advocates communicate with their legislators about hunger issues

They talk to their friends and other social contacts about the need for a solution to hunger.
Many share their personal experiences with hunger with us.

Even if a person doesn't have a lot of money, they can still advocate.

Tell a friend with money, and then they can tell a friend, and it works.

Or write to Congress, the President, anyone you think can help. Contact Elected Officials

Do a fundraiser at your School or Church, for the local food pantry or soup kitchen.
