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.
…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.
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:
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.)
I like Obama. My biggest knock against him has been that, being a decent person, he projects good faith onto Republicans when there is none. The election of Trump appears to have opened his eyes. (Eight years too late to do anything about it.)
The United States of America in 2017: One political party gets shit done, but can’t tell a compelling story to voters. The other party has a coherent culture but is only interested in fucking shit up. The U.S. abortion rate has hit its lowest point since the procedure became legal nationwide in 1973, according […]
In addition to denying coverage for pre-existing conditions and yanking health insurance out from under a minimum of 30,000 Delawareans, the GOP’s “repeal of the ACA will accomplish a lot of what Christine O’Donnell was campaigning for back in 2010, even while retaining O’Donnell’s incoherence.
This is from a debate that aired at 7:30 pm on October 13th, 2010:
Coons is a patsy. He is one of those Democrats who STILL expects Republicans act with some sense of decency and decorum. In spite of everything we’ve been through, he regards Republicans as acting in good faith. His naivety would be funny if the times didn’t make it so sickening.
If you want updates on the go, or whatever…who knows why this is important? I don’t. In fact, all the fake news means you probably should delete your FB account. go ahead and delete it….I’ll wait.
I don’t know if it is pure cynicism on my part or merely realism, but this “Trump is compromised” story is going nowhere. Here’s why:
1) There will be no popular uprising. All information about Trump is compromising. More information about how much more compromised he is brings nothing new to the table. Trump lovers will say it is liberal propaganda, and Trump haters can’t be any more outraged than they already are.
2) There will be no political uprising. Democrats have no will to fight Trump. that is a simple fact. For this to go anywhere, it would require somebody to prosecute the case. The Dems are in their comfortable fetal positions, rocking back and forth gently hoping this all blows over (which it will).
3) There will be no Republican awaking. Even if the Dems had some willingness to fight, the Republicans are solid in their support of Trump and that is unshakeable. They control 2 branches and they will simply say, what comprising information? The press will eventually get the picture and move along.
If something needs fixing, then lace up your shoes and do some organizing.
If you’re disappointed by your elected officials, grab a clip board, get some signatures, and run for office yourself.
Show up, dive in, stay at it. Sometimes you’ll win, sometimes you’ll lose. Presuming a reservoir in goodness, that can be a risk. And there will be times when the process will disappoint you. But for those of us fortunate enough to have been part of this one and to see it up close, let me tell you, it can energize and inspire. And more often than not, your faith in America and in Americans will be confirmed. Mine sure has been.
I’m sad that he isn’t going to be President anymore. A very decent human being. (His complete remarks are below.)
DOVER, Del. — Delaware lawmakers are poised to begin this year’s legislative session by rejecting pay raises for themselves and other state officials. The pay increases take effect automatically unless they are voted down in their entirety. A resolution to do so is already circulating among lawmakers.
Check out this short 8 minute clip of John Carney and count how many times, and how many ways he says his hands are tied. #leadership!
If you haven’t heard Keith Ellison explain why he is running for the DNC Chairmanship, you should listen to this.
The Delaware Democratic Party’s “all tax increases are evil” stance is stupid on its face. John Carney is an idiot to begin his term by removing a discussion of common sense tax reform from the mix of possibilities, instead focusing 100% of his energies on cutting services.
We need to put something together to help push Rep. John Kowalko’s common sense tax recommendations, it is nice to see the NJ waking up to that fact:
Dellose had fired about two seconds after first calling on McDole to put his hands up.
I’m glad Cassandra, Delaware Dem, and Pandora have opened up a new front in the war on insanity with BlueDelaware.com. The problems facing this country, and this state, are much too big to spend time arguing with each other about strategy. I’m sure knowing those guys that it will have a big impact, and I […]
I get that cops have a tough job, but it is a tough job they signed up for. All this rah-rah around law enforcement is getting a little creepy, and I will not be forced into a blanket “support of law enforcement” because not all cops are decent. Police officers are people, so by definition […]
