Does anyone realize that Congress will spend more money trying to prove Benghazi when the previous 8 hearings proved nothing, while spending next to nothing on the VA scandal. Yours truly has figured it out, if its a bi-partisan problem, Repubublicans/Tea Baggers would rather do nothing but if it can discredit the black president or a future candidate, well, that's a problem. With all the talk of the deficit, the Republican nitwits spend millions proving nothing while add to their beloved deficit and then blaming it on the liberals and progressives. An even bigger problem...liberals and progressives doing nothing to stop them. Get off your hands and do something...anything.

When you hear Detroit, you think of a place where legends are made. Detroit was once a great and vibrant City. Because of years of mismangement and neglect, it is now a shell of what it once was. There will be a Mass Rally on Friday, July 18th, 2014 at1 Hart Plaza, Detroit, MI 48226 by Progressive Democrats of America to fight incumbent GOP Governor Rick Snyder's approach on how he is mishandling Michigan. Why is it that when businesses owe thousands of dollars for water, they don't get cut off? When the "Average Joe" and "Average Jane" owes a little in comparison their water is cut off? It's inhumane and plain cruel!
Rick Snyder and his heartless cadre of elected Republicans in Michigan have proven how out of touch they really are. They are controlled by the wealthy Koch Brothers and DeVoes Family. Michigan Media have been M.I.A. as nobody cares for the citizens of Detroit. Where do we go from here and what can you do to make your voices heard and make a difference? If you think it won't happen to you in your City? Think again! They're trying to privatize everything including water. It's time to fight back America!
Monica Patrick from the Detroit Water Coalition is our special guest tonight. We'll discuss what's being done to combat this grave injustice and how you can help. Join us!

When his son asked him to do a favor one day, Victor never imagined what the results would be. His son wanted help expanding his North American Power team into the new markets in Pennsylvania, Maryland, and New Jersey.
Victor was a corporate professional working in engineering management and didn’t know much about expanding an energy choice team in various states, but when he became a Representative, he found that the free training and free webpage surprisingly helped him find fast success, and soon he became an Area Director.
“What I didn’t expect was an income that would allow me to spend time with my grandsons. When my kids were growing up, I had to spend 60 to 80 hours a week working, and saw so little of them. Now I have the pleasure of sharing this Opportunity to help lots of people with their own personal economic recovery.”
Victor’s wife is also looking forward to spending less time at her job. “That’s great, it’s already helping us meet our future goal of spending lots of time with our two grandsons, and not having to worry about finances while doing so. My suggestion for anyone considering the North American Power Opportunity is to just do it. If not this Opportunity, then what else? There are no more deregulated industries and North American Power is changing the playing field, in fact they’re changing the entire home-based business industry. Just do it!”
