This came in over the tip-line.
I live in the “currently” unhinged and Republican stronghold state of Texas but if the turnout for Saturday’s Women’s March is a barometer, hopefully we can change that sooner than later even with gerrymandering.
That said, I would like to move my deposited money from BOA, headquartered in one of the most politically regressive states in the country, at least in my opinion, to one that reflects Liberal values. If you have any information as to how anyone on your blog has searched for such a financial institution, would you kindly share?
Thanks for the consideration,
William in Austin
This is a question that comes up from time to time because I think we all recoil at the thought of propping up the very companies that are robbing America blind.
My gut reaction is to advise moving your money to a credit union. They are locally owned and not under the gun to make quarterly profit numbers. But there must be a bank that has a national ATMs network and isn’t straight up evil.
Does anyone have any experiences with any of these? Any other recommendations.
If the answer to that question is “I’ve commented on blogs” that isn’t enough. You also need to Call Chris Coons and tell him to vote no on Tillerson for Sec of State.

We need to keep constant pressure on Coons and Carper to resist Trump. They will fold and support Trump as soon as they think the coast is clear. This call script is from thesixtyfive.org, but you know how this works.
My goal for this post is 10 calls to Coons on this issue. Let me know in the comments if (when?) you called.
The election of Trump has given birth to untold scores of activists and countless new grassroots organizations. Here is a good one – Network Delaware. It is the legacy group of the Eugene Young campaign, so you know they are going to be kicking ass. h/t Pandora at BlueDelaware.com. Team Young and Delaware United are […]
There are more than ten reasons, but I’m pressed for time, so I’m going to deal with a couple pressing issues, and let you guys flesh out the top ten list in the comments section.
1. John Carney must be stopped. Control of the state Senate is a serious issue. John Carney has already signaled on numerous occasions that he wants to Senate to flip so that he can push through his Chamber of Commence backed policies. Stephanie Hansen’s election doesn’t guarantee that Carney’s plans will be thwarted, but it will present Carney with a stumbling block.
2. Stephanie Hansen is by far the most progressive candidate in the race. The Green Party of Delaware isn’t contesting this race, so there is nobody to vote for (or work for, or donate to) on Hensen’s left. She may not be your dream progressive, but the stakes are high in this election and arguing that there is no difference between Hansen and Marino is just as empty-headed as arguing that there is no difference between Trump and Clinton. And, yes. I am perfectly within my rights to vote for a less than perfect progressive without it conflicting with my liberal values.
The following Delaware Democratic Party leaders were absent from the Women’s March on Saturday: Tom Carper, John Carney, Bethany Hall-Long, and Mike Purzycki. I’m sure their Delaware Way base are extremely happy.
While educators and politicians throughout the land are recoiling at the notion of Betsy DeVos as Secretary of Education, Democrats created her. Or someone like her. The Democratic Party’s embrace of corporate education, corporate textbooks, corporate testing and corporate-sponsored ‘education reform’ is what led to this.
Wow. Just…wow. We must have had at least 50,000 people there. My wife really wanted to go, and I was more than happy to tag along. My wife and I got to Philly around 9 and to Logan Square around 9:15. I’ve never seen so many clever signs. Many of them employing the vulgarism that […]
…have faith in our values, our history and our country. America, in all its greatness, its variousness, its customs and history is far, far greater than any President
And yet here we have the opportunity to be America’s guardians and protectors at a unique moment, perhaps a moment of especial peril. Who would not embrace that challenge? We know the curse: may you live in interesting times. We are living in interesting times. Most of us would not have chosen it. But we have it. I think many of us look back at critical momentous moments in our history, the Civil War, World War II, the Civil Rights Movement and other comparable passages in the country’s history and think, what would I have done?
I got nothing. I’ll probably be away for a while. Here is a link to what President Douche said. I haven’t read it but heard he took some time to piss on everyone in attendance. That seems fitting.
The formation of a new group called the Delaware Civil Rights Coalition was announced yesterday in Dover. Delaware Public Media says “about a dozen civil rights and religious groups in Delaware banded together on the eve of President-elect Trump’s inauguration to fight discrimination.”
Updated with Cannabis Bureau of Delaware’s action yesterday.
What is Hansen all about? Is she another co-opted, corporate Dem, or does she have some progressive fire in the belly?
I’m holding off criticizing or praising until I see something from the campaign, which I will get to hear from on Saturday the 28th:
The first set of John Carney’s nominees sailed through the Senate yesterday. Republicans could not contain themselves from raining effusive praise on these nominations. And why should they? It’s basically the same set of characters with whom they did business during the Markell years. Which, at first glance, is what the Carney Administration appears hell-bent […]
PPPs are not a way to provide jobs, it is really a way that conservatives have found to privatize different government functions
This post, by Cassandra at Bluedelaware.com really nails Carney’s utter lack of vision and leadership by catching his most appalling moments from a meeting with Eastern Sussex Democratic Club (which is admirably trying to nudge Carney into a position that looks something (anything) like leadership.)
