Act Blue Link : Music

Ok to share. Thanks!

International Day of Peace

Let's keep working on this. Yesterday's Climate Strike showed the power of the people, inspired by one determined young woman named Greta, who refused to accept all the excuses. 
It is up to us to continue the work.
I have faith we can do this. We need to encourage and support candidates who understand the importance of protecting and restoring our environment. 
We need more green spaces, cleaner air, water.

Make America Polite Again

In case you missed it last week, Bill Maher tried to be funny by suggesting we start "fat shaming" people. I didn't think it was funny, but since I'm busy seeking a decent, stable day gig while trying to  make ends meet at home, all while running for POTUS from facebook (until we raise enough to start travelling) and attempting to stay true to myself in the process, I didn't feel the need to respond to it. After all, this isn't the first time he (Bill Maher) has said something so completely stupid that it was easy for me to ignore.

That is, until James Corden decided to use his public platform to respond. So, a thank you to Mr. Corden.

Maybe we should stop shaming and blaming each other for things we cannot control and start working together on the things we CAN do something about, such as being more courteous, and protecting each other's rights.

Bahama Hurricane Evacuees Kicked Off Florida Ferry

Once again, the incompetence and cruelty of this administration rears its ugly head. Yet another case of top down control freaks coming in and ordering the locals around.
Enough already.

March for Our Lives : A Peace Plan for a Safer America

Act Blue Donation Link

I am Mari Tamburo, a singer (p/k/a/ Mari Mack) and grandmother seeking the Democratic nomination for President. You may be thinking "What does a singer know about serving as POTUS?"
For one thing, I have many years of experience bringing people of various ethnic and economic backgrounds and diverse personalities together to have a great time.
Now, as you may already know, 
this is the exact opposite of what we are used to in politics. 
Political strategy has traditionally been:
divide people, 
say whatever you need to say, 
make promises that cannot be kept, 
just in order to "win."
We have all experienced these tactics from both the so called "right" and "left" side of the political spectrum, and frankly, it's not working for anyone. 
While it may seem to be working for a small minority, in truth,
nobody is winning when our environment is being destroyed in the name of "progress."
The health of our environment -- 
the air, the soil, the water, biodiversity are all suffering as a result of unchecked profiteering. 
We need to come together as a nation for the benefit of all, not just the chosen, misguided few.
Are you ready for a true revolution?
Music is a vehicle for change! 
Join us on this journey. 
Together, we can reach our destination of a more peaceful, more organic world.

[ Atlantic ] Why We're Moving Forward With Impeachment

"While many people believe that beginning an impeachment investigation can begin only with a vote of the full House of Representatives, this is not true. Article I authorizes the House Judiciary Committee to begin this process."
