Frozen in time. That's what our current president wants us to be. He doesn't believe in new technologies, he doesn't believe in multi-cultures, he doesn't believe in taking care of the environment. To believe in the above takes thought, and reason, and growth. When you put yourself first, and only yourself...When you put personal gain above doing what's right...When you fabricate a crisis to fit your own personal agenda...You are not being a leader for the good of all people, you end where we currently are, frozen in time. Donald Trump's is the most unsuccessful, unqualified, and the most repulsive person to ever hold elected office at any level. You do not lead by being a bully, and by destroying things that are in place to protect and serve people. To be a leader, you have to be someone with constructive ideas, and be able to think about how your actions today will affect tomorrow, but as you can see we are frozen in time, stagnant. That's what his presidency will be remembered for, stagnation, corruption, and treason. #peacethefuckout#governmentshutdown#trumpsshutdown#republicanshutdown#america#unitedstates#politics#philly#politician#donaldtrump#dumptrump#usa#philadelphia#philly_igers#penn#pennsylvania#clocks#philadelphia_ig
Caeser. Possibly the most famous general in the history of the world and was the victim of probably the most famous assassination of all time. He rose to power at the most politically hostile time imaginable, against all odds he became the most powerful man in the known world. His most famous achievements as a general were the conquest on Gaul(modern day France) and the victory over Pompey in the Late Republic civil war. Most notably the Battle of Pharsalus where he managed to defeat an army double the size of his own! However, although he was a great general and a massively influential politician(especially amongst the common people), we must judge him in all aspects of his life, which include the atrocities he committed on campaign and his blatant disregard for the law. We must ask ourselves, was he an heroic general who founded the greatest empire of all time or a tyrannical madman who’s thirst could only be quenched by power? #history#ancienthistory#rome#caeser#tyrant#hero#general#politician
We can not fix a flawed political system in one election season. We need to continue the hard work by talking to our neighbors and running for local elections. The political revolution started by Bernie Sanders is far from over! We still have a long way to solve the economic, racial, and environmental issues facing our nation. I’m glad Lancaster and York Stands Up are working hard to fix those issues by fighting for policies such as a Green New Deal and Medicare For All. Moreover, I’m proud Jess King is working hard to mentor and prepare local candidates for 2019. We can take this country back from the corporate class and make an America that works for all of us!
What ever happened to political discussions on ‘quality of life’? We the people have been forgotten. I’m ready to talk about real issues with real people who are affected by the lack of support of our country’s leaders. I'm touring the country, talking to as many people as I can. Do you have a podcast? Do you work for a local news station? Do you have a large following on social media? Let's talk! Conversation is where progress begins!
Susanne Neumann ist mit 59 Jahren gestorben. Die Gewerkschafterin und frühere Putzfrau wurde durch einen Streit mit Sigmar Gabriel bekannt. Die aus Gelsenkirchen stammende Susanne Neumann starb am Sonntagabend an Krebs. Außenminister Heiko Maas (SPD) äußerte sein Beileid via Twitter.
Neumanns Ehemann habe ihren Tod mitgeteilt, bestätigte der Bezirksvorsitzende der Industriegewerkschaft Bauen-Agrar-Umwelt, Georg Nießing. Susanne Neumann hatte den damaligen SPD-Chef Sigmar Gabriel vor drei Jahren auf seiner Gerechtigkeitskonferenz mit unbequemen Fragen in die Bredouille gebracht und war dadurch über Nacht berühmt geworden. Sie riet ihm unter anderem, aus der großen Koalition auszusteigen.
Trotz ihrer Krebstherapie wollte sich Neumann politisch engagieren, trat in die SPD ein und beteiligte sich an der Parteiarbeit. Sie veröffentlichte ein Buch darüber, wie man in Deutschland trotz jahrzehntelanger Arbeit in der Altersarmut landen kann. Später trat sie aus der SPD wieder aus.
Susi wir werden dich vermissen!
On 16 January 1940, British Prime Minister Neville Chamberlain holds a speech in the first meeting of the British parliament in 1940. Among other things, he reacts to the current situation in Western Europe. Contrary to what the Germans said yesterday (on which we did a post as well), Chamberlain claims that the neutral nations’ precautions to a German threat are wise. ‘We cannot but admire the calm and courageous attitude both of the two governments and of the Belgian and Dutch peoples.’ Obviously, the tone of Prime Minister suggests, as the Germans feared, that the British too presume that the neutrals lean towards the Allied side in case of war.
Chamberlain comments on the Winter War going on in Finland, and praises the Finns for their ‘heroism’. He uses the speech to promise help to Finland: ‘Arrangements have been made by which export licences are being granted for the release, consistent with the needs of His Majesty’s Government, of certain war material of which the Finnish Government are in need.’
The Prime Minister concludes his address with a brief look into the future: ‘At the moment there is a lull in the operations of war, but at any time that lull may be sharply broken, and events may occur within a few weeks or even a few hours which will reshape the history of the world. […] if that should prove to be the case, we are ready for it, and in common with our Allies we will spare no effort and no sacrifice that may be necessary to secure the victory on which we are determined.’
