Minnesota Network for Progressive Action
The mission of mnpACT! is to build a progressive community based upon the core values of respect, dignity and opportunity, by educating people about progressive ideas, advocating for progressive issues, and electing progressive candidates to local, state and federal offices.
This idea of local control in regards to the transgender issue is not sound policy in any way, shape or form. It is laughable.
When Trump or any GOPer says that the issue of transgender bathrooms, or any other issue involving transgenders, is up to the local jurisdiction, what they are really saying is that transgender discrimination is entirely determined by the number of biased individuals in any given place. And can be changed from one place to another.
What if black civil rights (voting rights) had remained "locally controlled"? What we had was . . .
The Minnesota House Republican protest bill is wrong in so many ways.
To single out protesters in a public safety context is ridiculous. Personally, I don't condone blocking freeways. It is dangerous and shouldn't happen. But I understand the need to get people to pay attention.
But the real thing is this. Any blocking of the freeway for any reason is already illegal. It already has consequences. Years ago, truckers were protesting increased fees and did convoys that slowed interstate traffic to a crawl. The police charged people. They made arrests. It was difficult . . .
Ladies and gentleman...I do not care who comes out of the meeting this weekend as DNC chair. Doesn't matter. Just want somebody coming out of there, fired up and ready to go.
I don't want to hear about factions or divisions or purity or even principle. I want somebody that will work hard for the entire party and focus on the other party and not have to deal with internal strife.
Democrats got cheated in the last election. And for some of it, we only have ourselves to blame. The consequences have been severe, . . .
