Judy Green and St Stephen Baptist what gives: It is becoming quite clear that Judy Green is surrounded by the folks at St. Stephen Baptist Church and no one can tell us why. Kevin Cosby do you care to chime in?
From softball interviews by Renee Murphy of WHAS11 and Stephan Johnson of FOX41, who DID NOT disclose their personal relationships with Ms. Green through the Church, to having Machika Smyzer, formerly of St Stephen Baptist installed as her new LA, one thing is sure. St. Stephens is political and the fact that they are now involved heavily in our government should be a major red flag.
Additionally, Green keeps trying to play the race card but fails at it miserably. From accuisng anyone who is African American to somehow be wrong in questioning her is an insult to the integrity of the African American commuity itself. How can you play the race card when YOU are the one attacking the African American community? Why does Cosby feel the need to surround and protect a crook like Green at the expense of the Church? It defies logic and St. Stephens needs to get as far away from this as possible.
Wisconsin Repubs do what they want: Wisconsin GOP has stripped the public workers of their bargaining rights. Wisconsin GOP Strips Public Workers' Bargaining Rights Remember to thank the Democrats for that. Seriously. We elect these clowns to do a job and when they don't like the responsibility that goes with that they leave town. AND STILL GET PAID. there should be a law that allows we the people to fire them immediately for job abandonment.
Indiana is following the lead: Yep Indiana Democratic lawmakers left town as well. Daily Kos: UPDATE: Daniels Opposes Bill, Indiana House Democrats Leave State in Protest Is this what we are coming to? We elect people to represent us and work for our best interests and when they lose they take their ball and go home.
When the going gets tough the tough get going. An old saying to be sure but apparently the idiots in elected office have misinterpreted this saying. Badly.
How many of us would still have a job if we abandoned it? None of us would, so why should it be any different in the public sector? Especially an elected official who promised to uphold our Constitution and laws? It is time for a mass protest by we the people but not to save the unions as the media is making this issue about.
No the real story, and the real reason we need to protest and organize, is to save Democracy itself.
An elected official who can abandon his job, continue getting paid, and have the audacity to believe he is doing the right thing, should be an alarming testament to just why they should not be in office in the first place. We simply cannot allow this trend to continue in our America.
Throw them all out, freeze government spending at the current level, give the Governor limited emergency powers ONLY for the use of natural emergencies and disaster issues, then hold a special election in 60 days. Disqualify any sitting congressman who abandoned their job for being considered for the seat and disqualify them from running for office permanently or at least 12 years.
Additionally, since these traitors who ran from their elected duties can actually be arrested, which is why they hide in states that have Democratic governors like Kentucky for example, pass federal legislation that will hold those State governors accountable for aiding and abetting in a crime. Make it a felony so we can rid ourselves of them too.
After all if you aren't part of the solution then you are part of the problem.
Time to send a message now and let them know this behavior is unacceptable.
