Victory in Progress While The Stuggle Continues
January 18, 2019
Update: The elections are over and 40 house seats have been flipped from red to blue. Tragedy still happens as fires and weather wreak havoc and earthquakes pop up all over the map. BigPapa is always here no matter what happens – to help all people to find their way.
Votes are still being counted today as election day spills over into Wednesday, but one thing is clear: the Democrats have taken control of the House of Representatives (while the Senate is still locked under Republican Control.) Georgia may be headed for a do-over and a recount is about to be triggered in Florida for those two Gubernatorial seats. We won’t know where the votes landed in Arizona until next week. Thankfully enough votes have been counted for us to know that Democrats will now be chairing the committees in the house – which allows the house Democrats to do the formidable job of acting as a counter balance to the executive branch and DJT.
If all of this excitement leaves you feeling like you want to do more: surf over to the Big Papa Action page and there are currently 4 active petitions for you to learn about and sign. Have pride in taking part in re-authorizing the VAWA – Violence Against Women Act. Be a part of history and take action by putting your support behind the Equality Act! Just like voting – signing petitions is free! And taking action is super simple and fun at the Big Papa Action Page. Share the page with friends and family to help get these petitions to their repective finish lines!
We are only 776 days away from the next Presidential election- so between elections it is important to let your representatives know what you want done and how you feel about the issues. Write to your congressman/congresswoman. Sign petitions! Volunteer for grass roots organizations like Human Rights Campaign and the ACLU. Reach out to vulnerable populations by giving to and writing for Amnesty International.

This is amazing, I am always thinking about ways to help the community, and/or the people in it. I love that you are showing people ways to stand up for what is important like battered women, and help their peers. Great job, great page I am going to check it out more. I also know how expensive it is to have to start over, love that you are offering people a way to afford this.

its good to help people out in as many ways as you can. There are lots of people out there that need help and just helping makes you feel great and hopefully you’ll want to do it even more.
If they’re willing to work smart and hard, they can get the financial stability they need and have always dreamed for.

The victory of taking the house back under Democratic Majority was sweet! Taking control of the senate would have been sweeter, but we will enjoy what we can for now. Trump is taking a victory lap over the senate victories claiming it was him campaigning that made the difference. And the ones who lost, didn’t embrace him, that’s why they lost..lol it is going to be a long hard uphill battle to keep our human rights under his leadership. He was challenged about the caravan approaching our country, and simply called the reporter for CNN rude and wouldn’t answer any questions. It’s Trumps way or the highway for anyone who questions him. I don’t see how he is going to work with Democrats, it’s against his war on human rights.
It is a wonderful thing to see that you are offering items at discount prices to make it more affordable for people who are starting over and in desperate need of basic furniture and kitchen items. Donating a portion of the proceeds to help others in need is a noble gesture as well. Thank you for your kindness and generosity!
