eg #IndivisibleILConvening???
J Gruber
49:01
After attending the DC Women's March, I remember waking up understanding that what the former president's appointments had in common, was to chew through the agencies they were appointed to lead! Frightening! I am SO VERY GRATEFUL FOR A WAY TO TAKE EFFECTIVE ACTION WITH INDIVISIBLE! THANK YOU, THANK YOU EZRA and ALL!!
Sarah Lincoln
49:18
Sarah Lincoln, Hyde Park, Indivisible-Chicago South Side.

We are grateful, thank you Ezra!
DonnaJoy (she, her)
50:58
Who owns the media? This is an important factor.
Joyce Slavik (she/hers)
51:15
Yes, there are more of us!
J Gruber
51:19
False Equivalency is a big problem in framing the issues.
Rosemarie Colacino
51:38
Yes, let's all push for Build Back Better!
Jane Nicholson
51:42
This is the fierce, strident massaging we need; to the pint and absent nattering
Janice Gintzler
52:01
Who owns the media? About 3 companies. Congress wants it that way
Rosemarie Colacino
52:09
Hi Jane - Good to have you here. Yes!
Jim McGrath
52:59
Seems to me that the news focus is on the negative. Millions of jobs since Biden took office, Covid vaccines, Build BAck Better, but the media focus is on high inflation. Stuff like that.
Heather Booth
53:08
We also need the economic agenda to build confidence n people and get the Congressional votes we need for democracy and anything else.
Rosemarie Colacino
53:10
Yes to Freedom to Vote and The John Lewis Voting Rights Advancement Act!
Georgette Foss
54:00
Can we trust Manchin and Sinema to not obstruct BBB further?
Marci Adelston-Schafer
54:47
Yay for ZDurbin and Duckworth.
Terry Maher
55:15
Duckworth is up for election in 2022...
J Gruber
55:18
I love the tenacity of Indivisible Leadership's responses to the "cards we were dealt". Thanks for all your responses to the twists and turns, like putting the BBB before Voting rights because that's how we get President Biden. It's a great comfort to have your thoughtful leadership. Thank you!!!
Janice Gintzler
55:20
I read a book about southern rural people whose land has been appropriated by big business. Dems ignore this group. And the April issue of The Atlantic magazine is "This Lane is NOT your land." It is about black farmers who lose their land during a downturn, while white farmers get aid.
Janice Gintzler
55:54
This land is not your land--April issue of The Atlantic
Heather Booth
55:57
Thanks, Ezra! For your laying out the issues and for providing such great leadership for the fights ahead!
Teri Watkins
56:00
Thank you Janice G
Marci Adelston-Schafer
56:14

Joyce Slavik (she/hers)

👍
Rosemarie Colacino
57:15
Let's listen to Ezra and be timely with our calls! If all of ustoday call, imagine the difference we can make!!!
Terry Maher
57:21
Suddenly, GOP reps who voted for BBB are upset by death threats to MOC. What took so long, huh?
Nancy Staszak
57:56
ThanK you Ezra!
J Gruber
57:57

Joyce Slavik (she/hers)
01:51:34

Janice Gintzler
01:52:52
Unfortunately, , parents are the first teachers.
Sarah Lincoln
01:53:01
I wouldn't use the word "deserve". I would say "we want"
Janice Gintzler
01:54:08
And since the 1980s mothers have joined the workforce massively. Who is home to prepare breakfast, to make lunch to take to school, to have dinner where kids learn vocabulary?
Janice Gintzler
01:55:23
I agree, Sarah
Janice Gintzler
01:56:10
Yes, statistics need reference
Ivy Czekanski
01:57:59
The media goes to extreme lengths to use passive voice and hide what is going on
Marci Adelston-Schafer
01:58:04
Good point. We need to target the perpetrators!!
Marci Adelston-Schafer
01:58:17
YES!!
Janice Gintzler
01:59:08
Yes tax policy: Congress has allowed concentration of the media in a few hands. Congress has changed the tax code to make the wealthy avoid taxes.

Joyce Slavik (she/hers)

Focus on the brownies not the recipe. Brilliant metaphor

Exactly, Terry!
Janice Gintzler
02:07:05
Midwest Workers Association, at 52nd and Halsted in Chicago sent me a bulletin about Bezos, who made $75 billion, I think it was, during 2020, enough to pay each Amazon worker over $100,000 bonus.
Terry Maher
02:10:04
It helps to keep paragraphs visually short so it doesn't look like a lot of work to digest.
Janice Gintzler
02:11:31
Yes, it was in the 1980s that companies went from private to on the big board: thus stockholders are the most important, not customers, not workers
