Google is not your enemy. If you don't know the results of these major pieces of legislation then once again, you are only showing you are basically still in the JVs while Im playing pro and dunkin on fools.

Enjoy your evening. Drink some wine, get out the heating pad, and enjoy the ignorance of denial from being played your entire life.

In compliment:

Dear friends,

It would be like hiring the oil tycoon Koch brothers to run the Environmental Protection Agency.

NY Governor Cuomo is reportedly thinking about replacing the tough “sheriff of Wall Street” Ben Lawsky, who is stepping down, with an industry friendly pick who would go easy on the big banks.

This decision affects the whole country – time after time, New York banking and insurance superintendent Ben Lawsky has insisted on steeper penalties for illegal behavior on Wall Street than what federal regulators asked for.

Click here to tell Gov. Cuomo: Give us another tough “sheriff of Wall Street.”

The NY Daily News calls Lawksy’s Department of Financial Services “a force to be reckoned with on Wall Street” and considers Lawksy the second most important public official in New York, behind only Gov. Cuomo.

Lawsky has used his position to force the industry to pay out hundreds of millions of dollars in additional penalties for breaking the law – and he’s focused on making sure law-breaking individuals on Wall Street are held accountable.

Luckily, Gov. Cuomo is also reported to be considering a strong pick, Rohit Chopra, who has the support of everyone from Senator Elizabeth Warren to groups including our partners New York Communities for Change and our Wall Street-fighting allies at Rootstrikers, CREDO, and Citizen Action NY.

Sign our petition with Rootstrikers and Demand Progress to Tell Gov. Cuomo: Nominate Rohit Chopra to be the next “sheriff of Wall Street.”

Rohit Chopra has taken on for-profit colleges and student lenders and delivered for everyday people. He exposed financial scams targeted at service members and veterans, and negotiated tough settlements for making illegal loans to students.

Sen. Elizabeth Warren, who initially hired Rohit Chopra at the CFPB, has said he’d be “phenomenal” as the New York banking and insurance superintendent, calling him “smart as a whip, independent, hard-working, and loaded with integrity.”

Click now to urge Gov. Cuomo to choose Rohit Chopra to continue holding the line against Wall Street.

In solidarity,

Wall Street's Worries about the Leap Second, serve to prove Sander's Point

2 - More reason Why Bernie Sanders SHOULD Become the Democratic Nominee and Defeat Any Republican in 2016 :

This is huge -- and there's a good chance you missed it.

In a 5-4 decision yesterday, the Supreme Court handed Republicans another stinging defeat. They upheld the constitutionality of Congressional districts drawn by independent redistricting commissions -- as an alternative to districts drawn by partisan legislatures.

I know, I know, that sounds really wonky. But here's the thing: This is a BFD.

Here's why. After winning the 2010 elections, Republicans in state legislatures across America abused the redistricting process to favor themselves -- a practice known as gerrymandering. They drew maps that gave Republicans an unfair advantage, allowing them to retain control of the U.S. House in 2012 despite the fact that House Democrats received a million more votes than House Republicans.

The good news is there are two ways to beat Republicans at this game and restore a fair vote at the same time. The first is to flip as many state legislatures as possible before the next census in 2020. DFA created our Purple to Blue project with exactly that goal in mind. The other is through citizen-led initiatives and propositions putting redistricting into the hands of state level independent commissions -- exactly like the commission the Supreme Court just upheld.

That makes Florida the very next battleground and if we win it has major implications for elections in 2016. Florida's Fair Districts Now campaign has challenged an appalling Republican gerrymander that cost Florida Democrats as many as seven seats in Congress. Now, the Florida Supreme Court is about to hear their case, but the Fair Districts campaign needs funding to fuel the fight in court. We can't win this with one hand tied behind our backs because of lack of resources.

Fair Districts Now needs your help RIGHT NOW. Chip in $3 or more today and fuel the fight to overturn Republican gerrymandering in Florida before the 2016 election.

Fair Districts Now is a remarkable group of activists. With help from DFA members, Fair Districts Now successfully gathered 1.5 million signatures, broke through numerous roadblocks set by the Republican state legislature, and earned 63% of the vote to amend Florida's constitution to outlaw gerrymandering.

After this stunning loss at the Supreme Court yesterday, Republicans know the Florida case is their best chance to keep stacking the deck. They've unleashed the full resources of the Florida legislature to try and win this case, because they know their power is at stake.

Fair districts wouldn't just mean more competitive elections in swing districts. It would also break up some of the super-conservative districts that have helped to give rise to the Tea Party and made Republicans the party of "No."

Stopping gerrymandering is one of the major reasons Democracy for America first launched our Purple to Blue program. If Democrats ever want to take back Congress, or control the legislature in states like Florida, we need fair districts to win.

Our friends at Fair Districts Now can win this fight, but they need your support to help cover the legal costs. Chip in $3 or more today to help make sure we win.

We have too much at stake in 2016 to not do everything we can to win.

Thank you for making change happen.

1 = HRC is just another elitist and so is no better than the following = ALEC Legislative members = Some 537 odd Rs and 14 odd Ds when this list was compiled (now there's some real bi-partisan membership aaaAHAA HAAAHAahahahahaha).

21st track "(All we have is rhetoric)"

We hope that that is enough to get you to agree to do nothing.

OH - but we don't mind if while taking no action to take control of government in a legal manner - that you go out and legally protest how shitty things are and get beaten up and arrested (illegally) by the cops.

If you protest often enough while taking no political action to take control of government - we fully expect that martial law could be called down upon you.

But HEY - that's OK with Us - because we are all about supporting the 1%er status-quo. How better can we protect that then by getting you all to do nothing in the political arena in your state or for your federal representation.

ratios are for show? you really are an idiot that can't do simple math aren't you? one of the main reasons the 1% continue to get away with the shit they do is because simpletons like you can't understand the difference between 4 to 1 in favor and 5 to 1 against so they keep doing the same stupid shit and let the GOP win, the dumb and dumber strategy of change, duh math is hard

go ahead you are the Dem hater why don't you post those shitty results you refer to so we can chat about them.

I have posted the TPP fast track results and I am ready to chat, why don't you post the vote tally you would like to talk about.

But anybody who can count can see that the TPP was a great victory for the GOP and those that hate the Dems like you, congrats on getting fast track for TPP even though I think it was a terrible thing, you got it done running the evil Dems from office in 2014.
