Just wanted to post this.I have a been an auto workers wife for years. We are headed for recession.

Hubs is an engineer. He retired early and now has a job that makes parts for autos but other things as well...My son went into the autos on the line ...never really liked school. He is very smart though. He was laid off in Ohio in February...car not selling. He got a different job still in Ohio about an hour away, he got laid off before his start day. I have seen this before. Autos always signal the beginning of recession...and they are the first to signal when it is over...batton down the hatches and get ready we are headed for recession with the GOP in charge God help us. Good luck.

Will Suburban Activism Pave the Democratic Path To The House?

In an unseasonably warm Friday evening in late February, more than 100 residents of Virginia’s Tenth Congressional District filled the gymnasium of a community center in Sterling, one of the sprawling towns of Loudoun County in the exurbs of Washington. Constituents had for weeks been trying to get Republican Representative Barbara Comstock to go beyond the controlled environs of a tele-town hall and face her constituents in person. They mounted daily call-in campaigns and protests outside her district offices, asking her to attend. In the end, she was a no-show, saying she had a long-scheduled event at the same time.

One by one, district residents went before the microphone, listed their hometown and ZIP code for the record (often with a pithy comment about not being a paid protester) before asking questions on a series of pressing issues—national security, President Trump’s conflicts of interest, immigration, education, environmental protections, and, most prominently, the future of the Affordable Care Act.

This is a good read about how we win!


Will suburban activism help us win back the house in 18?

RIP Inside the Collapse of the Mark Steyn Show

Mark Steyn is a phony. He created the faux narrative that Pres. Obama wiretapped Comrade Drumpt and Breitbart picked it up...a day or so later someone gave it to Trump to read and the rest is history.

Trump did not mean that Obama was literally wiretapping per Spicer

"White House press secretary Sean Spicer said that President Donald Trump was not talking literally or specifically when he accused President Barack Obama of "wiretapping" his campaign."

What a tool.
