Message to the President, and to the Congress:
It's very simple. We can aim for a UNIVERSAL Standard of $15 an hour Minimum Wage for ALL - that would be {frugally} a living wage these days. One should not have to be employed, and on government assistance to make ends meet and to raise a family. This is in effect, the government subsidizing the Employer, for paying the Workers below-par wages. With money to spend and a little economic security, people could make wiser choices about the food, clothes, shelter and transportation that they really need; and with Medical Benefits and support for Public Education, they could raise their kids and enjoy their families without fearing catastrophe around every corner. Mr. President, you and Congress could help make this happen, as President and Mrs. Roosevelt made the New Deal happen! That would, also, set the country on a new and better course.

Mama's Day Cards You Won't Find at the Drugstore

The group...commissioned a group of artists to design Mother's Day cards featuring "low-income moms, young moms, immigrant moms, single moms, incarcerated moms, queer moms, and moms struggling with substance abuse," among others. BEAUTIFUL! MOVING!




     







"Roses are red, violets are blue, better luck next time finding a Mother's Day card that truly represents you."

If you aren't the typical nuclear family, that's the kind of message you're likely to find down the greeting card aisle, but for the third year, the Strong Families initiative is offering not-so-average families Mother's Day greetings of a different kind.

The organization's "Mama's Day Our Way" eCard series commissioned a group of artists to design Mother's Day cards featuring "low-income moms, young moms, immigrant moms, single moms, incarcerated moms, queer moms, and moms struggling with substance abuse," among others, as Jezebel notes.

It's Just a Plant is an illustrated children's book about marijuana. It follows the journey of a young girl as she learns about the plant from a diverse cast of characters including her parents, a local farmer, a doctor, and a police officer.
WOW!!!!!!
IT'S ABOUT TIME!!!!!!!!!
TELL EVERYBODY, TELL ALL YOUR FRIENDS, AND PLEASE NOTE THIS AND GET IT ON THE FRONT PAGE!!!!!!!!!

WHY THIS BOOK IS IMPORTANT; AND POLITICAL IN THE BROADEST SENSE 

PLEASE CIRCULATE TRUE DRUG INFORMATION WIDELY.

This is NOT a "side issue", of importance only to hippies and people on the fringes of society.

DRUG DE-CRIMINALIZATION IS AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE FIGHT TO REGAIN OUR FREEDOMS, CIVIL RIGHTS, AND ECONOMIC RIGHTS AS WELL.

THE DRUG WARS ARE AN ESSENTIAL PART OF THE PLAN TO REMOVE OUR FREEDOMS AND CIVIL RIGHTS, AND LEAVE US WEAK, HELPLESS, SICK, AFRAID, AND IN POVERTY. In other words, a population EASY TO CONTROL.

It is not some mysterious entity, some cabal of evildoers behind the scenes plotting Earth's doom. It is the CAPITALIST SYSTEM ITSELF. In the Capitalist System, evildoers RISE TO THE TOP because they are MORE SELFISH AND RUTHLESS than the rest of us.

We need a system of Co-operation and SHARING Earth's resources FAIRLY. Didn't you learn the advantages of CO-OPERATION and SHARING in Kindergarten? Like that best-selling book said?

Capitalism is not such a system. And present-day events are proving it more than ever before.
