    CALLING ALL FREELANCERS. New York just passed the Freelance Isn't Free act. Help it spread to other states & countries by signing this petition: http://buff.ly/2lxnZp3 Freelancers deserve to get paid for all their hard work, but they often lack the protections afforded to traditional employees. It's time to change that. Heenay Patel

    #54 Preston, I understand your confusion. It was originally supposed to be a march about women's issues, but with the political roller coaster that is occurring and the numerous policy issues that were dividing the country the women's march became much much more. In our own march the name was officially changed to the Human Rights, Justice, & Equality March. The originators of the march in DC followed this same train of thought as I understand from the speech one of the organizers gave. It's because all these issues are women's issues. LGBT rights are women's issues, equality, immigration, justice; they are all women's issues, so they came together. I'm sorry those in St Louis had disagreements because it was supposed to be inclusive and tolerant; that was the whole point. Otherwise there wouldn't have been men marching right beside us! Fathers carrying their young daughters on their shoulders with signs that read; I march for my little girl. Or Christian mother's marching beside their gay sons and daughters with signs that read; equality includes everyone or God loves my gay son too (yes I saw these signs). It was a moving day Preston and one I will never forget.

    I think it was the same weekend in St. Louis that there was a women march. I was working at an Autoshow. There were a lot of supporters and I was very happy for everyone marching and peacefully using their First Amendment Rights. What I didn't like was at the women march in St. Louis was there was no common theme. Even on the Metro Train, even though women were wearing the same shirts, they were all marching for different causes. One group next to me was pro-life trying to support Trump, one group of women was talking about equal rights but wouldn't speak on which rights of women needed to be solved, the next group was only their to try to bring back Hillary, a fourth group was marching for Men who want to act like women to have the rights of women, then I saw another group protesting the national security issues. I watch about ten minutes of the women getting together, yet their was a lot are disagreement among the groups. Certain women said they other women where not allowed to be at this march. So, What was the main theme of this march?

    Worldly Disputes

    By the uses of faith and reason
    let men judge their plain folly
    There’s nothing in worldly disputes
    but flaws of untruth, precepts of idiocy
    And, more trouble in the periods of existence
    that pays regard to mistaken subjects
    Lo! its an outbreak of idle deeds
    which oft shadows common sense.

    #43 Oops, accidentally deleted my reply:

    What is coming out is that the efforts to put him into the wh began in prior to 2010, and then Congress became GOP dominant. They used the media and the Tea Party to feed into the people's frustrations and turn it into irrational anger. You hear this negativity every day for 6 years and it seeps into your pores. They laid their groundwork well and that is why he felt confident in making that statement, even though I think it shook a few people in the party.
    The thing about such a campaign is they know it will be easy to punch holes in that dam and that is the reason for the drastic measures they are taking now, and the campaign to clamp down on the media. If they can turn this country into a military state quickly then we may see the largest 'democracy' fall. I don't think they were counting on The Resistance and so they are getting careless...They made a huge mistake; that the American people would stay gullible. They are losing support daily and the pressure is being put on the rest of the party. If they don't get the 'control' they are aiming for by mid-term elections they know they will have lost the war...It will be the next 22 months that will speak volumes. IMHO

    #6 Trump did not just slip through he boasted vocally that he was slipping through. One of his campaign boasts was that if he had shot someone in the street, his supporters would still vote for him. http://thehill.com/blogs/ballot-box/gop-primaries/266809-trump-i-could-shoot-people-in-streets-and-not-lose-support

    #29 @Pamela 🐝 Williams - that is a crucial topic for discussion. The knee-jerk, bullying sentiment that 'if you don't love the US as it is right now, you are a communist' that aims to silence clear, rational discussions by making someone feel "wrong".

    That specific tendency - the extreme polarization of any idea or opinion - is exactly part of the malaise that has changed us from a country of messy, flawed, but essential tolerance to one of intolerance in around 3 or 4 decades.

    The communism trope is simply deployed to stop someone from continuing the initial point they were making.

    We need clarity so profoundly right now. That is the way forward.

    I feel your pain, I do. But I've been in Asia now for 28 years. I used to complain and compare. But after a while I figured out that Asia is a pretty cool place to hang out. I don't have to worry about getting burgled, mugged, shot. I don't worry about my children getting into drugs. Yes there is inherent racism here, but it is usually not hateful as it can be in the West. As for China, well China only recently opened its doors so give it time. People are still wary of outsiders especially considering the constant rhetoric we hear of people dishing China. Being part Japanese, I've experienced racism here like you could not imagine, but it is no worse than I've experienced in the UK or America. Thailand if a fabulous country that tickles the senses. I'm sure a few years from now you will look back on your experiences with fondness.

    #9 #10 Great wisdom to know that the value and extent of education for your child(ren) rests on you, the parent. It is so simple to say, yet it screams from the school bells that have now turned into buzzers and gongs.

    #9 #10 One of my mentors had said once "You talk too much. You have too ears, but one mouth. God tells you to speak once, listen twice." I took these words to the heart, and became a lifelong learner. You're right, William. I wish parents would be so sensitive about this. Unfortunately, most of them leave the education of their kids to the schools.

    #5 One of the most common lies in my country is that "people have been uneducated and made ignorant." Education is "one of the" government's responsibilities, but "main responsibility" of the individuals. I grew up in the same country, and people call me "The Walking Library," because nobody stopped me from reading, searching, exploring, and learning. My son goes to school, but as his father, it's me who is responsible for his education foremost, not his teachers. And if those teachers are somehow wrong about something, I would emphasize it, too! When I was teaching English classes, my students (and they were adults, not kids or teens) would ask me "Can we talk English as good as you do?" I would always come up with the same answer: "If you don't want to learn, nobody can teach you. If you do, you will learn despite me!"

    #3 I wish I were wrong in most sincerity, but do not feel this is the nature of the majority. I truly believe we are being manipulated by our leadership creating divisive issues in race, sex and religion to name a few. Unfortunately the skills to do so are well honed and most good people do not anticipate treachery. There is simply no greater villain than those who would divide us in hatred and mistrust. We really can not blame our leadership or media, as they would have no power if we failed to follow. There is a better way, we must simply step off the path and hate no more.

    Human rights is the fair, ethical and humane treatment of individuals regardless of sex, religion or race. It is a myth of course. An ideal we aspire to as a culture, but as a species we do not act upon. The proportion of our resources devoted to destruction and hatred demonstrates this truth all to clearly..

    @Dr. Allen Brown Sadly enough, our God-given rights are being flushed down the toilet as an excuse for keeping us safe. Meanwhile, police departments are being given weapons that, Constitutionally, they never should have had in the first place. Because no one is taught how to think critically, the public still swallows the 9/11 lie, despite experts like Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth and Pilots for 9/11 Truth having a plethora of evidence that the whole story around 9/11 was fabricated. We live in a country that is rapidly taking on the aspects of the State that Orwell mentioned in "1984". Books are being removed from library shelves (for example) that were written during WWII...because (I suspect) they challenge some of the most basic ideas about Hitler's actions vis-a-vis Poland among other things, like Hitler's peace treaty with Great Britain . When all the books of that era are finally gone, and the people who fought in the War are dead, the State is free to rewrite history to its liking. This is but one example of the evil being perpetrated against the American people and the rest of the world.
