NEWS:

What's "choice" got to do with it, Paul Ryan?. Paul Ryan wants persons to have the "choice" to not purchase health insurance. Hey, why so timid, Paul? Let's go Full Monty on this choice stuff, Mr. Speaker. Let's give persons the "choice" to not purchase auto insurance; I'm sure there won't be any issues with folks getting into car accidents and just refusing to pay for the damage they do to someone else's car-or worse. Let's also give folks the "choice" to not purchase mortgage insurance; I can't imagine the banks you conservatives love so much will have any problems with that. Unsecured loans are their favorite.

White supremacism is ready to roar White supremacism was never banished from American political thought, just shoved to the fringe and hushed to a whisper. Now, in the Age of Trump, it's back in the mainstream and ready to roar. Witness the words of Rep. Steve King (R-Iowa) on the subject of immigration: "Culture and demographics are our destiny. We can't restore our civilization with somebody else's babies." washingtonpost.com

Dear Birmingham Temple Members, Last evening our Board voted unanimously to support the following resolution: As people of conscience, we pledge to resist policy proposals to target and deport millions of undocumented immigrants or discriminate against marginalized communities. In this spirit, the Birmingham Temple Congregation for Humanistic Judaism hereby resolves that our community is committed to providing sanctuary and/or support for those seeking refuge in a manner consistent with our Humanistic commitments to ensuring the dignity and human rights of all people. Charles Paul President, Jeffrey L. Falick Secular Humanistic Rabbi

At gathering on 'politics of love,' Sanders warns Trump could start a war."This is one of the things that scares me most: For a demagogue to succeed, they need to cultivate hatred. Now the hatred may be against immigrants - we're all supposed to hate immigrants, and maybe it's other minorities, African-Americans, Latinos," Sanders said. "But also I worry that the hatred will spill over to foreign affairs, and that we are maybe entering into a situation where a Trump needs a war to rally public support." He said Trump's victory, was not a victory for Trump or his ideology, it was a gross political failure of the Democratic Party. He won because "there are people in this country who are hurting, and they are hurting terribly," Sanders said. "And for years they looked to the Democratic Party, which at one time was the party of working people. And they looked and they looked and they looked and they got nothing in return, and out of desperation they turned to Mr. Trump." Sanders encouraged conference attendees to run for office, especially school boards, city councils and state legislatures. More at yahoo.com

Bravo to Detroit's Freedom House as the only agency in our county which provide support in all forms for asylum seekers (escaping torture and violence) with an excellent track record of success. For 20 years they've received 60% of their funding from HUD which will be ending as of April 1st. They raised over 70% of their lost funding but more is needed. If you'd like to help, please click here to learn more about this amazing place and how you can help. https://www.freedomhousedetroit.org/ and check out this incredible video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=A1cHgi3Jj1k&feature=youtu.be If would be a true tragedy if this institution had to close its doors.

Why it is Important that you attend our meetings. Imagine four more years of the poisonous lies, actions and appointments in just over 50 days. Imagine your children reading textbooks written for Betsey Devos whose appointment was approved by a committee in which every Republican had received thousands in contributions from Devos and more from her family and PAC's. Imagine a trump Supreme Court when he has used his power to eliminate Federal Attorneys who may be investigating him or his allies. Imagine the power of Steve Banon to utilize the alt right (a new name for White Supremacists, neo-Nazi's, and Klansmen). Do you feel safer that the new administration uses the term, Radical Islamic Terrorists, but never the White Supremacist Terrorist. isn't the national increase in attacks on Jewish sites or Black churches terrorism? That is why you should bother to attend our meetings. We need you and many more like you to learn all you can and be a part of a team that needs you! Al Halper,

Are You Kidding Me? Are You Kidding Me? You MUST Be Kidding Me! "One popular program facing elimination is "Meals On Wheels," which uses federal funds from the Department of Housing and Urban Development to mobilize volunteers, businesses and donors to provide nutrition to thousands of senior citizens on a daily basis. It supports over 5,000 community-based organizations across America, reaching people in both urban and rural areas." The approximate cost per year is only $2 million dollars because it is run by volunteers in local communities. Rebecca Halbrook
