As much as I hate the current incumbent in the White House, his family and his supporters–the one thing to remember is that his election proved there is a flaw with polling. So while his approval rating may be at an all time low the only poll that really matters is the one on Election Day.
I remember marching against him back at Netroots Nation ’15 in Phoenix, AZ.
From the Washington Post:
Joe Arpaio, a former Arizona sheriff whose extreme stance on illegal immigration made him a household name, was convicted Monday of criminal contempt of court for ignoring a judge’s order to stop detaining people because he merely suspected them of being undocumented immigrants.
Google really did a great job with their doodle today. The doodle marks the 100th anniversary of the Silent Parade. The march was organized by the likes of the NAACP and W. E. B. Du Bois.
I was surprised to read about this today.
On July 24, members of UFCW Local 400 who work at the nation’s only Lipton Tea plant in Suffolk, Va., voted overwhelmingly to approve their first union contract. The Lipton plant in Suffolk has operated for more than 60 years and produces nearly all of the Lipton Tea sold in North America.
I’m glad that Lipton Tea in North America is now made by union members. Over the years there have been some labor issues with Lipton internationally however.
