Thank you.. just what I needed right now.. we all do, you could make it an OP!



G'Day @ work, rivers!

May the Force be with Hillary!





Mahalo for all you do!

Rosario Dawson's own rep is in the toilet for attempting to smear Workers Rights Icon Delores

Huerta.

Rosario Dawson, how dare you lecture Dolores Huerta?

When legendary farm labor, feminist, and voting rights activist Dolores Huerta published an op-ed saying she didn’t know enough about Sanders to vote for him, citing his inconsistent record on immigration and his lack of presence in the United Farm Workers struggle (that’s the labor union she co-founded with the late Cesar Chavez), the person who spoke up on Sanders’ behalf was an actress who once played Huerta in a poorly received biopic of Chavez. Rosario Dawson, a 36-year-old from New York City whose Latino ancestors hail from Puerto Rico, a US territory, and Cuba, the beneficiary of an open-door US immigration policy these last 57 years, wrote an op-ed in the Huffington Post lecturing Huerta.

“I am surprised, dismayed, and concerned that you would do your legacy such a disservice by becoming an instrument of the establishment, rather than joining this movement to create a better America like you once inspired us to do,” Dawson said.

It's dawson who's the poor little tool. Delores Huerta will go down in History as the Worker's Rights Icon that she is.. and rosario will be on the junk pile of history for ignorantly trying to portray her as #soestablishment

Forget that Huerta not only cofounded the UFW but has dedicated six decades to fighting on the front lines of the workers’ rights movement. She’s been arrested 22 times while demonstrating for the cause and was even hospitalized in 1988 – as a grandmother – with two broken ribs and a ruptured spleen while protesting President George HW Bush’s opposition to the UFW grape boycott. Forget all of it. Dawson has declared Huerta’s legacy destroyed on Bernie’s behalf.

In case there was any doubt as to whether Sanders approved of her message, Dawson was subsequently picked to introduce him at speaking events in San Diego and Los Angeles, where she told crowds to be wary of the media. She spoke of how she been registering Latino voters for 11 years through Voto Latino. Good for her. Dolores Huerta has been doing it for 56, since back when that kind of thing could get you lynched.

Thank you~

“Go get me a bill passed like that, and I’ll sign it.”

Despite having spent decades in Congress, Bernie doesn’t appear to know that this is how things work. He thinks he can go back to the Senate and get $15 simply by demanding it. Hillary seems content in allowing him to hang onto that fantasy: “Go get me a bill passed like that, and I’ll sign it.” So she’s handing him what he views as a victory right now on the issue, by giving him a pathway to go chase after $15, even though she knows it won’t end up being nearly that high when it eventually lands on her desk.

Thank you, Iaaa~
