#ThankYouTrump hashtag Set Up By Trump Supporters backfires wonderfully

Very happy this backfired on them.

"There’s always a danger in trying to get a hashtag to trend. Sometimes, it does for all the wrong reasons. 
Supporters of President Donald Trump started a #ThankYouTrump “Twitter Rally” on Tuesday night, but it didn’t take long for them to lose control of the hashtag. 
Soon there were plenty of tweets “thanking” Trump for reasons his supporters definitely wouldn’t appreciate.
Here’s a sampling:

The 10 Executive Orders Trump Has Signed So Far

Funny how we heard Conservatives gripe about about the number of  executive orders signed by Obama yet Trump is on pace to sign more executive orders than any President in history this month.  Funny ow conservatives are strangely silent on this.

The list So far

Trump Bans Two More Federal Agencies From Speaking To The Pulic

The things many of us were saying would happen if Trump were elected President are now happening.  I hope this is a wake up call.  Sadly there are those of his supporters who will probably embrace this but what they don't realize is that even they are not safe from this man. Trump clearly does not care for the health and safety of Americans  We have been saying he is a wolf in sheep's clothing and it has not taken long for the wolf to lose his disguise.  He must be stopped.  If he has done this much damage in a couple days.  Think of the harm he will do in a month. I'm glad there are people who are getting this info out so we can keep it in the public eye.

From the article

"Trump’s moves in effectively clamping down with a fascist iron fist on two agencies that are key players in the fight to keep America’s environment and food supply safe reveals something simple, and yet profound, about the new presidential administration.
President Donald Trump simply does not hold in very high esteem at all the health, safety, and overall well being of those who he has just officially assumed leadership of. That’s not a conjecture. That is, rather, a simple observation of the fact that Trump is undercutting some of the key entities responsible for safeguarding Americans’ health, safety, and overall well being."  
Also from the article 
"A report from the Huffington Post, going off of anonymous tips and an internal memo obtained by the news organization, details some of the parameters of the new restrictions that have been placed on the EPA.
  • No press releases will be going out to external audiences.
  • No social media will be going out. A Digital Strategist will be coming on board to oversee social media. Existing, individually controlled, social media accounts may become more centrally controlled.
  • No blog messages.
  • No new content can be placed on any website. Only do clean up where essential.
This information was provided to the Huffington Post by an employee of the EPA who, notably, spoke anonymously due to fear of retaliation.
Making the whole thing even worse is that it’s not just the EPA. Scientists working for the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) have also been effectively banned from speaking with the public."

President Trump Wants To Kill These 17 Government Agencies, Here's How Much They Cost And What They Do.

From the article, 

"Some of President Donald Trump's planned budget cuts appear to be targeted more at undercutting Democratic priorities than at shrinking the national debt.
A host of planned funding cuts to federal agencies, reported last week by The Hill, are part of the Trump administration's desire to eliminate roughly $10.5 trillion in spending over the next 10 years -- nearly all of the federal government's discretionary spending.
Yet Trump has vowed not to cut entitlements, such as Medicare and Social Security, and promised to beef up military spending, which represents the lion's share of federal spending -- making it hard for him to do more than chip away at the margins of the nearly $20 trillion national debt.
What, then, would the reported cuts accomplish? The answer appears to be defunding a number of projects seen as liberal darlings -- including groups aimed at preserving and supporting the environment, civil rights protections, the arts, minority-owned businesses, and public broadcasting.  To put this in context: The total cost, per American, of the following 17 programs said to be on the chopping block is $22.36 per year-- of which more than a third comes from a single clean-energy program. By contrast, housing subsidies, like the mortgage interest deduction, which are disproportionately used by the wealthy, cost $296.29 per American.
Here's a list of the various federal agencies reportedly on the chopping block, along with some of their key initiatives -- and some of the jobs supported."

Here's the article.

Tell Your Congressperson That Betsy DeVoss Is Not The Right Choice To Head The Education Department

The vote to confirm inexperienced billionaire Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education was delayed until 10 a.m. Jan. 31. Scores of educators (and parents) have expressed that DeVos is not qualified to ensure quality children's education in this country, which Devos herself proved in her testimony, available to view on multiple reputable web/news sites.
And now to act!
Please call the following Senators to express your opinion regarding her appointment. It's a polite 2 minutes of your time in which the Senator's aids will walk you through making a statement, which then, by law, gets counted.
At least 3 of these Senators need to be convinced in order to block DeVos' nomination.
Don't email. Don't tweet. Don't complain on Facebook. Be the change.

Conservatives Need To Learn That Freedom To Express Dislike For A President Does Not Just Apply To Them

OK, for eight years we had to listen to conservatives complain about how they didn't like Obama. I'm now seeing some of these same conservatives getting all butt hurt because we are expressing our dislike for Trump. OK conservatives, here's how this thing works. It is really quite simple to understand. Just like you, we can express our viewpoints about a President we don't like either. See how simple that is to understand? If you complain about someone doing the exact same thing you were doing for eight years, I have a word for you, t is "hypocrite" Getting butt hurt over someone else doing the same thing you are doing is called being a hypocrite. This freedom of expression thing works both ways, We now get to express our dislike for the President just like you did for the last eight years. Telling someone else not to express their dislike for a President because you don't want to hear it does not sound very American to me. Making disrespectful comments about the marchers yesterday does not make you sound intelligent, it makes you sound like a seven year old who needs a nap.

Some Cold And Flu Myths And Why They Are False

Here is a fact to keep in mind.  You are probably going to get sick this winter, cold, flue, sinus infection (which I seem to have caught the black plague of sinus infections) and we have all heard the myths.  don't go outside in the cold without a coat or you'll catch cold, I got the flu from the flu vaccine, going out in the cold will make the cold symptoms worse, don't drink milk or eat ice cream when you have a cold.  A cold can turn in to the flu, etc  All false and the article linked below explains why these and other things people believe about the cold and flu are myths. 

How You can Support Planned Parenthood As They Are Under Attack From Extremist Law Makers

As you may know, many right wing extremist law makers want to defund Planned Parenthood which would deny women access to important and life saying care.  These law makers misatakenly belive that Planned Parenthood does most of its business preforming aboutrions.  And yes, while many Planned Parenthood clinics (including ours in Ottawa Illinois) It actually makes up less then two percent of what they actually do.  Here are the other services Planned Parenthood provides.

From our local Planned Parenthood website in Ottawa Illinois the Planned Parenthood Webpage.

  • Abortion services and counseling
  • Adolescent sexual health
  • Clinical breast exams
  • Comprehensive birth control services
  • Emergency contraception (morning after pill)
  • Hepatitis A & B vaccine (TWINRIX)
  • HIV counseling and testing
  • HPV vaccine (Gardasil)
  • Miscarriage management
  • Permanent sterilization
  • Pre-Exposure Prophylaxis (PrEP) for HIV prevention
  • Pregnancy testing and options counseling
  • STI testing and treatment
  • Transgender hormone therapy
  • Ultrasound dating
  • Urinary tract health and infection screening
  • Well-person exam

If planned Parenthood is defunded:  Your daughter, sister, wife, girlfriend, nieces, and any other woman in your life will loose access to this important and in many cases life saving care.  Could you live with yourself if your daughter or girlfriend died of cervical cancer because your local Planned Parenthood had to close because its funding was cut off?  The far right seems a bit too obsessed with what women do with their reproductive rights and this needs to stop.  In fact the government already does not fund Abortion Services, a fact that they don't seem to remember very well.  

Here is where to donate.  Half  of you donation goes to you local Planned Parenthood Clinic

If you can't afford to donate money, You can drop by with some coffee and donuts or some kind of food.

Here are some other ways you can help

We need to stop these right wing extremists from putting millions fo women's health and lives at risk

Posting Hearts To Facebook Does Nothing For Brest Cancer Awareness

How anyone can think that simply putting a heart on their Facebook wall is doing anything to promote breast cancer awareness is beyond me. It makes as much sense as me posting a picture of a chicken to promote awareness of ALS. It makes no sense what so ever. No one is going to know what the heck your talking about. And if the only way to get them to tell you is to ask what the heart is for and then in the response you say, don't tell anyone especially the men, is one of the dumbest ways I have ever heard of to make someone aware of somethign. And NEWS FLASH MEN GET BREAST CANCER TOO. so why keep this a big secret. In fact men are more likely to die from brest cancer as it is not talked about hardly ever. I have to wonder if the people who come up with these silly games ever stop and realize how dangerous games like this are. How about actually sharing some useful information about how to do a self breast exam. Makes more sense then just posting a heart on your wall that no one has any idea what it means. Yet for some reason whenever these silly games go around, people still keep playing them instead of you know, actually educating people.

The PTSD Sucks Meme Is Great, but it also has "that Guilt Trippy Phrase"

The "PSTD Sucks, Who's got My six" meme is a great meme except why would you think only two percent of our friends will respond to it. That is actually the kind of language that will make people not want to share this. This meme really does not need a guilt trip message. I would recommend editing that part out as many of us have done. Think about what that line is actually saying and you will understand my point. You're pretty much assuming that most of your friends won't share this I have never understood why the writers of these memes insist on ruining a great message with the "no one reads my post" or "most of my friends won't share this" type lines. They serve no purpose except to turn people off making them less likely to share the info. I wish people would read this stuff and think about how the wording sounds to the reader and edit this stuff out. Takes a matter of minutes. And the writers of this stuff really should know that guilt tripping or putting people down is not a way to get their message across.

Thankfully many of us have decided to edit that nasty part out and make it a meme worth sharing. We hope others do the same.

The Meme Comparing The 9/11 Attacks To College Students Being Upset Over The Election Is Judgmental And Holier Than Thou

You probably have seen the latest judgmental conservative meme gong around that says how on 9/11 schools stayed open but Adult college students need a safe  place to go because their candidate lost the election.  A couple major problems with this meme.  First:  Some schools stayed in session and many closed. I have just as many friends who had their classes cancelled across the US and Canada. This meme makes the general statement that all schools were open which is of course not true. In fact some businesses also closed early, pro sports came to a stop MLB, the NFL, and NASCAR took a break and there was even talk of not finishing the MLB season and many people sought therapy after the 9/11 attacks and many still suffer from PTSD due to just seeing it unfold on TV not to mention those who were actually there and lost loved ones. As for the other point in the meme about "adult college students needing a safe place to go because their candidate lost" That part comes off very judgmental, snotty, and a bit holier than thou. If someone thinks they need to seek help no matter what the reason. bad day at work, depression, divorce, death of a spouse or other family member and yes, even their candidate losing the election It is not our place to judge them for it. Depression and anxiety take many forms, they don't fit in to a neat little box like some would like to think they do. Anything can be a trigger so calling someone a name because they handle things differently then you do makes you sound like a fourth grader. If all someone can do is name call then you're saying more about you then the person you're calling the name. One final point. It sure seems like conservatives love to share these judgmental memes yet call themselves Christians who worship a god who orders them not to judge others.  Funny how most of the worst judgmental people I know are also those who claim to be Christians and go to church every Sunday
