Cristopher Lee… whatta man. RIP
I just made a post on Kos in reply to a front pager who’s really pretty good. I’ll reproduce it here, in its entirety, for those who don’t want to click on a Kos link (Uni).
I’m going to vote for Bernie (0+ / 0-)
I live in DE. My vote doesn’t matter, because I live in DE and we’re the second “blueist” “state” after DC. My vote is diluted compared to some “red” nightmare like WY, SD, or UT.
If that’s not blunt enough, my vote doesn’t count as much as a vote in a state like SD, where I grew up and a source of eternal shame, for me.
So, I don’t expect Bernie to be the nominee. I’d go further, and add that I’d expect Bernie to be the same disaster that Barry Goldwater was for conservatives, but I don’t have to, because he won’t be the nominee. Money will take over, and Clinton will win the Democratic primary.
And I will vote for her in the general election.
Because Republicans have gone batshit crazy.
But I have to be honest. I’m tired of voting against, instead of voting for.
Hillary is as pro-corp as it gets. And I’m for “we the people”. The huddled masses. The poor and middle class.
I think, like most politicians, Hillary is looking out for the people who will help her get elected. The wealthy, and the corporations (thanks to Citizens United).
Paint her as the best option. Don’t paint her as being responsible in looking out for my best interests. Bernie is that guy.
Am I nuts?
by Saker of Michael Hudson and about Amerika and when and how the neo-conns took over Amerika.
Great interview on how Amerika works or doesn’t.
There will be a test;)
If the election were to be held last May 12, 2015, Penn Jillette, a big ol’ Libertarian, would have voted for Bernie Sanders.
You should probably read the whole thing yourself, because he also says, “I won’t vote for the ‘lesser of two evils’ so as not to ‘waste my vote’.’Someone needs to really deserve my vote to get it’.”
“Under fast-track, Congress transfers its authority to the executive and agrees to give up several of its most basic powers.
“These concessions include: the power to write legislation, the power to amend legislation, the power to fully consider legislation on the floor, the power to keep debate open until Senate cloture is invoked, and the constitutional requirement that treaties receive a two-thirds vote.
Quick and without searching for it or using references of hard copy, soft copy or on the web,…
— What are the five rights listed in the First Amendment?
You will be the only one who knows if you cheat. I am making it rote knowledge for my son and his friends who always seem to be here (Oh great fatigue, lack of sleep and eating me out of house and home). I think they need to know these five rights of the first amendment. I don’t trust the schools to teach The US Bill of Rights and the US Constitution. Sooo, I am going to do it, … half-arse, perhaps, but still making the effort to influence my world and these teens.
It’s really all neoliberalism screwing people again and again.
But not tonight.
There is a campaign to block congress from access to web sites until the Patriot Act is gone. NSFW warning, nude photos of anti-Patriot Act activists at the site.
I have my doubts that many members of congress access this website, but why not?
I’m putting this info on other web sites that get more traffic, too.
