A Cambridge scientist is getting close to finding a cure for MS. 2.3 million American’s would love to see that happen. Read about this woman’s discovery about how to stop the immune system from attacking it’s own body.
http://dailytwocents.com/special-needs-man-hate-crime/ A special needs man gets abused by some of the most cruel, disgusting people in the world. We have all got to come together and stop hate crimes.
Many American’s are waking up after the election with a bad taste in our mouths. How could our brothers and sisters vote in such a monster? A racist, sexist, sexual assaulting bully? How, why? All i know is that we have to hunker down and get ready for the next long four years, and know that one man will never change all the progress people of color and women have accomplished. How people with disabilities have come too far to let one bully make fun of them.
This is just their last attempt to stop something that can never be stopped. Loving our diversity will get us through this. Everyone on the street I am saying hello to, smiling, helping someone, opening my heart. One man will never keep us from overcoming just another bully in the long history of bullies.
Just breathe, move forward and never let one man stop you from loving one another. The storm, this too will pass.
In what became a nightmare, I fell to my knees and cried when I heard Hillary lost the election. Trump will never be my President, he lost me when he continued to double down on racism, sexism, misogyny, and he sexually assaulted scores of women.
What will you tell your daughters? How will baby boomer women, who have worked at 76 cents on the dollar for four decades, accept this? It’s a sad day for America. Now we will see what a Republican President and all of Congress gets things done.
I am beginning to realize when i start getting MS cognitive exhaustion and know when to lie down and reset my energy level. It’s worse when I get out and about in the community, where too much stimulation causes me to have what I call “Brain farts” and I lose my concentration, I also can cover up by saying I’m having a senior moment
THE WHITE HOUSE
Our ever committed Senator Peter DeFazio gets a good score from the ARC the agency for people with disabilities, for his two bills he presented to keep social security strong.
Two Bills to Strengthen Social Security Trust Fund Introduced in House
Last week, Representative Peter DeFazio (D-OR) introduced two bills that seek to preserve Social Security for future beneficiaries, including people with disabilities. The Fair Adjustments and Income Revenues (FAIR) for Social Security Act (H.R. 1984) would ensure that the Social Security Trust Fund is able to pay full benefits at least through 2057. This bill would do so by eliminating the cap that currently allows the wealthiest Americans to contribute a significantly lower percentage of their annual income to the trust fund. The bill was referred to the House Ways and Means Committee and the House Education and the Workforce Committee. The Social Security Protection and Truth in Budgeting Act (H.R. 1983) would ensure Social Security trust funds are not used for non-Social Security purposes. Additionally, it would separate Social Security trust funds from the federal budget so they could not be used to artificially lower the deficit. The bill was referred to the House Budget Committee and the House Ways and Means Committee. The Arc applauds the introduction of these two bills.
