Dylan's song lyrics tweaked in honor of Donald J. Trump

Mr. Tangerine Man (To the tune of "Mr.Tambourine Man"..with apologies to Bob Dylan)


Hey Mr.Tangerine man, weave your hair for me
I'm not stupid and there is no way I'll vote for you
Hey Mr.Tangerine man, weave your hair for me
In that jingle jangle mess that sits on top of your head

Your casino empire has returned into sand
Vanished from the land
Bankruptcies in hand
Investors left to stand around and muttering
Your ignorance amazes me, I'm branded on my feet
All the people that I meet
Say your ancient, empty head's too dead for dreaming

Why don't you take a trip upon your magic swirling plane
You know how to play the game
And you have no one to blame
I think that you're insane
I wait only for your boot heels to be wandering

I want you just to go somewhere
I want you just to fade
Take the money that you made
Into the Trump parade
Don't cast your evil spell my way
I'll promise not to pity you

Hey Mr.Tangerine man, weave your hair for me
I'm not stupid and there is no way I'll vote for you
Hey Mr.Tangerine man, weave your hair for me
In that jingle jangle mess that sits on top of your head

Mike Pence: A Personal Story

Emily Figdor
MoveOn.org
July 20, 2016


With Mike Pence poised to take the stage tonight to accept the GOP nomination for
vice president, I can't stop thinking about a bill he signed into law just months ago as governor of Indiana.
The bill makes abortion illegal in the case of fetal abnormalities.

You see, a little less than six years ago, I was newly pregnant with twins; when my doctor told me that one of the fetuses had Trisomy 18 - a genetic disorder that affects nearly every organ system in the body.
Half of babies born with the disorder die within their first week of life, the median lifespan is five to fifteen days.
There is a high risk of miscarriage or stillbirth with Trisomy 18 - which would put my other twin at risk, since I could go into labor very early or face other serious complications.

After my doctor explained my options and the risks, I made an anguished but clear decision to have a "selective reduction" - an abortion of the fetus with Trisomy 18,
which would have been illegal under Pence's law - to save my baby.
About seven months later, I delivered a healthy, nearly 9 pound baby girl.
My daughter is now five years old.
She is strong, kind and sings constantly.
I don't even want to think about what might have happened to her under Mike Pence's vision for America

If you think Trump & Pence can't win, I beg you to take them seriously.
In addition to being a very proud mom, I'm a political junkie and a campaign director at MoveOn.
I've been pouring over the polls, and they are not looking good.
Of the last five national polls released this week, all five were within the margin of error
- meaning it's a tight race.

Pence has said, "I long for the day Rowe v Wade is sent to the ash heap of history."
And that's not all.
In addition to rabidly opposing abortion rights, Pence thinks that women who work cause their children to have "stunted emotional growth."
When he was in Congress, he sponsored the first bill to defund Planned Parenthood -
and then he continued to push for the legislation year after year.

So it's no surprise that Pence is the vice presidential pick for the man who once said:
"Women, you have to treat them like shit."

For my daughter - and for girls and women everywhere - we must stop these two dangerous men from getting to the White House.

Mike Pence: A Conservative Proudly Out Of Sync With His Times

New York Times
July 15, 2016


Long after government regulators had confirmed the lethal consequences of cigarette smoking, Mike Pence mocked their warnings as "hysteria" in 1998.

"Time for a reality check," he wrote. "Smoking doesn't kill."

Long after most members of Congress had abandoned the quaint practice of delivering one-minute morning speeches, Mr. Pence eagerly held court in an empty chamber, musing about sports and Scripture.

And long after Republicans' war on big government was fading, Mr. Pence defiantly opposed his own party over the creation of signature programs like No Child Left Behind and a Medicare prescription drug benefit.

Throughout his career as a congressman, radio host and governor, Gov. Michael Richard Pence of Indiana, Donald J. Trump's running mate, has beeen deeply and proudly out of sync with his times.

24 Hours To Live

Morris returns from the doctor and he tells his wife that he only has 24 hours to live.
Given the prognosis, Morris asks his wife for sex.
Naturally she agrees and they make love.

About 6 hours later, Morris goes to his wife and says, "Honey, I now only have about 18 hours left..Could we do it one more time?"

"Of course," his wife says, and they do it one more time.

Later, as Morris gets into bed, he looks at his watch, and realizes he now has only 8 hours to live.
He touches his wife's shoulder and says, "Honey, please..just one more time before I die?

She says, "Of course, dear" and they make love again.

After the session, the wife rolls over and falls asleep

Morris, however, worried about his impending death, tosses and turns, until he's down to
4 more hours.

"Honey, do you think we could...."

At this point, his wife sits up and says,
"Listen, Morris, .enough is enough!..I have to get up in the morning, you don't."

GUY:
"Cool!"

DEVIL:
"What about drugs?"

GUY:
"Are you kidding, I love drugs!"

DEVIL:
"Thursday is drug day

"Are you gay?"

"No."

Last Chance To Stop Taxpayer-Funded WildLife Killers

Center for Biological Diversity
July 12, 2016


3.2 million animals died last year at the hands of the government killing crew called
"Wildlife Services"
Across the country these animal executioners have snuffed out wildlife, including 385 gray wolves, 68,905 coyotes, 480 black bears, 264 mountain lions, 731 bobcats, 492 river otters,
3,437 foxes and 21,559 beavers.

The Center for Biological Diversity has been leading the charge to stop Wildlife Services, which often does it's extermination at the behest of the agricultural industry and other powerful interests.
It's methods are horrific -- gunning down wolves from helicopters, trapping bobcats in neck snares and poisoning mountain lions with cyanide-shooting land mines.

We have a powerful strategy for taking Wildlife Services down by ending it's lucrative contracts with local, county and state governments that keep it in business.
We just ended it's contract with Mendocino County, California, and a few weeks ago we filed suit in Idaho where Gov. Butch Otter has funneled hundreds of thousands of taxpayer dollars to Wildlife Services to liquidate wolves.

There's no scientific basis for continuing to shoot, poison and strangle millions of animals every year - cruel acts that fail to manage conflicts with wildlife and pose ongoing threats to other animals, including pets.

ASK PRESIDENT OBAMA TO STOP THE GOVERNMENT KILLING MACHINE (Wildlife Services)

Send an e-mail to President Obama, in your own words, asking him to stop the killing of millions of innocent animals at the behest of Republican governors and hunters.


(Here is a copy of the e-mail I sent to President Obama just now)

"Dear Mr. President,
According to the Center for Biological Diversity, 3.2 million animals died last year at the hands of USDA"s "Wildlife Services".
These animal executioners have snuffed out wildlife including 385 gray wolves, 68,908 coyotes, 480 black bears ,264 mountain lions,731 bobcats, 492 river otters, 3,437 foxes and 21,559 beavers.
Wildlife Services' methods are truly horrific, including.gunning down wolves from helicopters, trapping bobcats in neck snares and poisoning mountain lions with cyanide-shooting land mines.
There is no scientific basis for continuing to shoot, poison and strangle millions of animals each year - cruel acts that fail to manage conflicts with wildlife and pose ongoing threats to other animals, including pets.
These actions by Wildlife Services are at the behest of elk hunters and Republican governors like Butch Otter of Idaho.
You have the power to stop this horrific animal extermination, and you don't need Congressional approval to do so.
All it would take would be one phone call from you to Secretary of Agriculture, Tom Vilsack, to end the slaughter of millions of animals each year who live in National Parks, National Forests, and federal Wilderness Areas.
If you did decide to make that phone call, it would be appreciated by millions of animal lovers across America and would also add to your legacy as you wind down your final term as President of the United States."

WATCH: A Woman live-Streamed Her Boyfriend Being Shot Dead By The Cops

Occupy Democrats.com
July 7, 2016

Barely a day after a black man was recorded being killed by police, yet another black man has been summarily executed without process by overzealous police - this time over a broken taillight.

The tragic video below was projected by Facebook live stream by his girlfriend at the scene of the murder.

"Stay with me," says Lavish Reynolds onto Facebook Live video:
"We got pulled over for a busted taillight in the back..And the police...they just killed my boyfriend."

Her four-year-old daughter was in the car too.

A Minnesota police officer appeared at the window moments later.

"FUCK!!!" yelled the Roseville police officer through the window.

"He just shot his arm off," said Reynolds to the camera.

"I told him not to reach for it," the frazzled Minnesota police officer yelled.
"I told him to get hands up."

"You told him to get his ID," said Reynolds, "his driver's license..Oh my Lord..I hope he's not dead...I hope he didn't go like that."

Lavish Reynolds broadcast that message from the back of a Minnesota police car with her daughter onto Facebook Live just an hour ago in a 9-minute video that's going viral.

Reynolds' boyfriend was a St .Paul County public schools employee, driving an unusual right-side drive through the intersection of Larpenteur and Fry Street through the town of Roseville between Minneapolis and northwest of St. Paul.
