California Senate Makes Voting Easier By Passing Motor Voter Act

The California State Senate passed the California New Voter Act on a 24 to 15 vote.…
While Republican misled states are making it harder to vote through various forms of voter suppression, California took a step in the other direction. The California State Senate passed the California New Voter Act on a 24 to 15 vote. The measure automatically registers any California resident who obtains a driver’s license, and who is also legally eligible to vote. The measure would add an individual to the eligible voter rolls, unless the person chooses specifically to opt out of getting registered to vote.
The bill’s original sponsor, 80th District Assemblywoman Lorena Gonzales (D-San Diego), patterned the measure after a similar law that was recently passed in Oregon. Gonzales argued:
The California New Motor Voter Act is a simple, common-sense opportunity to streamline and modernize our voting system to bring millions of eligible voters into the electoral process and rebuild the relationship between the public and their representatives.
Predictably, frightened Republicans balked at the measure, knowing full well that when more people vote, they are less likely to win elections. This is one reason that the Republican cabal is working so hard to erect barriers to voting in any state where they have a governing majority.
In California, however, Democrats control both houses of the legislature and the Governor’s mansion. So instead of passing voter suppression laws, they, along with Oregon, are working to increase voter turnout, rather than attempting to squash it.
Even without the Motor Voter Act in place, the Republican cabal is in sorry shape in California. Democrats not only enjoy lopsided majorities in the legislature, but they also hold all eight major state wide offices, leaving the Republican cabal virtually shut out from wielding any political power in Sacramento.
The Motor Voter Act won’t alter the balance of power in California, but it will make it easier for people to get registered to vote so that they can cast their ballots. With the increase in turnout, the Republican drought in California is all but certain to continue. When people turn out to vote, Democrats win, and that is especially true in California, where they already hold a decisive political advantage.

The Clown Is Exposed As Trump Admits That His Campaign Speeches Are About Nothing

Trump rally in DallasDuring his rally in Dallas, Texas, Republican pretender candidate Donald Trump admitted that his speeches are about nothing.
Trump said, “On Fox and CNN they call it all Trump all the time. And by the way, their ratings are through the roof. If they weren’t, they wouldn’t cover me, I’ll be honest. It’s a very simple formula in entertainment, in television. If you get good ratings. If you get good ratings, and these aren’t good, they are monstrous then you are going to be on all of the time, even if you have nothing to say.”
Trump is saying nothing in his speeches, except the word great and a promise that America will also be great if he is 'elected' pretender. Trump is gaming the media. He gets in front of the microphone and babbles on about nothing. For example, Trump announced his plan to repeal and replace Obamacare with “something great.” In case we missed all of the details that Trump was dropping, he repeated that he was going to replace access to affordable healthcare with something great.
The media knows that they are being conned, but they continue to cover Trump’s every move because they are have convinced themselves that Trump equals ratings.
The media created Trump’s surge in the polls by giving him daily free media coverage. If the media stopped covering Trump tomorrow, he would plummet in the polls. While Trump’s endless media coverage about nothing is annoying, he is doing Democrats a huge favor by taking away potential media coverage from more serious candidates.
Each cable news network knows that Trump’s speeches are not newsworthy, but they continue to give every one of them live coverage. Trump has no policy solutions. Trump is offering no answers. His campaign is based on the idea that America is bad right now, but he can make it great.
Trump admits that he is saying nothing, but the networks are still flocking to cover him. Because in America’s controlled corporate media, ratings are more important than informing the public.

Walker Commits Political Suicide By Promising To Step Up His War On American Workers

With his poll numbers in free fall, Walker has decided to step up his war on American workers. …
scott walkerWisconsin's idiot Walker has dipped to 2 percent support in the latest Washington Post-ABC News national poll of the Republican cabal pretender race. With his poll numbers in free fall, Walker has decided to step up his war on American workers. Walker is hoping to use attacks on unions and working class Americans as a way to reinvigorate the Republican base. The idiot hopes his anti-worker message will restore his popularity with the wingnut voters who have abandoned him in droves since mid-summer.
The Wisconsin idiot has earned a reputation for being anti-worker, but because of his flagging poll numbers, Walker is trying to revive his campaign by reminding America just how anti-worker he can be. Running against American workers seems a dubious strategy at best. However, Walker’s success in stealing elections in Wisconsin despite supporting virulently anti-union policies, may have given him reason to believe that running against workers is a way to win elections.
Walker plans to unveil his “new, improved” anti-worker plan on Monday at a town hall meeting in Las Vegas. Walker’s plan calls for eliminating the National Labor Relations Board (NLRB) and for making it illegal for federal workers to form labor unions. In addition, he wants to pass a national so called “right to work” law, in an effort to weaken unions nationwide.
Furthermore, Walker’s proposal calls for repealing Barack Obama’s executive order requiring employers to pay overtime to some salaried workers. Walker also plans to reverse laws that require certain employers to provide paid sick leave for their employees.
Scott Walker does not seem to understand why he has dropped to just two percent support in the national polls. He has spent the past five years carrying water for the Koch brothers and other billionaires, and now with his poll numbers circling the drain, his solution is to double down by stepping up his attacks on American workers.
The Koch brothers and the plutocrats in the Republican cabal will love Walker’s new plan to escalate the war against the nation’s working class. However, wingnut voters in Nevada, New Hampshire and Iowa, might not be nearly as receptive. For the wingnut union truck driver, the wingnut middle manager at McDonald’s, and the evangelical cult secretary who needs time off to recover from an illness, Walker’s ideas are not going to be well received.
Not every Republican shares Walker’s contempt for working class Americans. By intensifying his war on paid sick leave, overtime pay and union organizing, Walker may impress a few Republican cabal donors with deep pockets. However, with rank and file voters, the Wisconsin idiot is essentially committing political suicide. A campaign that bets against the American worker is a campaign that is placing a losing bet. Scott Walker should cash in his chips, cut his losses, and follow Perry out the Republican cabal exit door, instead of continuing his mean-spirited crusade against America’s workers.
