A daily series, Connect! Unite! Act! seeks to create face-to-face networks in each congressional district. Groups regularly socialize but also get out the vote, support candidates and engage in other local political actions that help our progressive movement grow and exert influence on the powers-that-be. Visit us every morning at 7:30 A.M. Pacific Time to see how you can get involved. The comment thread is fun and light-hearted, but we're serious about moving the progressive political agenda forward.

The orange pinpoints are the location of each organized group of Kossacks.
If you'd like to join a group, click on a point and a box will pop up showing contact links.
If you'd like to start a group, contact navajo for instructions.

Do YOU listen to Kagro in the Morning?

KiTM is Kagro in the Morning, the Weekday Daily Kos political talk radio show. Yes, Monday through Friday 9-11 Eastern Time, you can either listen LIVE or (along with
about 60,000 other people) you can download the podcast (for free) via a variety of methods OR view online directly from the KiTM Library at kagrox.libsyn.com.

KiTM produces a podcast which you can download for free via the Sticher App on your smartphone or tablet and from Amazon.com for Android phones and tablets. You can also access KiTM via Stitcher Radio online for your computer

My favorite way to peruse the podcasts is here, because this link allows you to SHARE them via Social Media.

You can see the KiTM diaries on Daily Kos HERE.

The Host of KiTM is the former Kagro X (now known by his actual name, David Waldman). Regular show visitors are Dr. Greg Dworkin, the Daily Kos User formerly known as DeminCT (also known as @DemFromCT on Twitter) and Armando Llorens (once known as the angriest User on Daily Kos, nowadays he's mostly angry at the Tea Party, which is a good thing). Recent podcasts have featured Spedwybabs & Joan McCarter.

Here's what you missed JUST on July 25, 2014:

Don't say I never did anything special for you! Although I couldn't put  together a genuine live show today, I stayed up late and recorded you an ALL NEW  KITM, so I wouldn't leave you hanging on a Friday! Lots included in the show, like Spedwybabs' simple & helpful pointer for how to help with the Detroit water crisis; lots and lots of Halbig & King follow-up; and the House lawsuit against Obama inches forward. Also, the craziest gun story of the day: the MN man who shot a 17yo neighbor because she asked him to stop riding his lawnmower over her property.  And the NRA imagines a "gun-required" world. The financiers are securitizing farmland and crops.  What could go wrong? Turns out none of these big mouths ever "goes Galt." And they're also lying about the connection between corporate performance and their giant paychecks. Shocker.

Direct download: July_25_2014_64.mp3

FYI: Did you know that by downloading the podcasts via the Stitcher App you could be donating MONEY to Daily Kos? Yes, that's right, listen to some of the brightest  (and often funniest) crowd on daytime's Daily Kos Radio crew on the Kagro in the Morning Show and drop a few coins of the realm into the coffers of Orange Territory.

So if you are a commuter with an iPod, a smartphone, a tablet with wi-fi or a portable hotspot WHY ARE YOU MISSING THE BEST PROGRESSIVE LIVE TALK RADIO SHOW ON EARTH every weekday morning or anytime, via podcast?

I guarantee you, David Waldman is worth listening to.



Just for fun, I'll add this Daily Kos Factoid

I wonder why one of the few places you can find a listing of the old UID monikers of a lot of the Daily Kos early staff & writers is the old Daily Kos FAQ?

Connecting Kansas:
Democrats Unite in Emporia


by tmservo433for Kansas & Missouri Kossacks

So our latest hero, tmservo433 provides a great re-cap to the event we promoted here for him.

At the time Paul Davis spoke, I had an in room headcount of 166, which is a heck of a turnout.   Sam Brownback couldn't bring in 200 in the Kansas City Metro when Rick Santorum came to town.

Kossacks showed up.  Several Kossacks were in the hall, as well as individuals who noticed I still had on my Netroots gear, and were happy to come and tell us how they are working for change in our communities.
tmservo433 is doing great work seeking out Kossacks and moving his state's progressive agenda forward.

Please visit tmservo433's diary for more photos! Enjoy! You can still REC it. You can join Kansas & Missouri Kossacks by sending a Kosmail to tmservo433.

You must add at least one tag to this diary before publishing it.

Add keywords that describe this diary. Separate multiple keywords with commas.

?

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.

You can add a private note to this diary when hotlisting it:
