But I don’t relate to the average mentality in the USA.

Don’t misunderstand me. If she’s the Democratic party’s nominee, I’m voting for her. But I’m voting Bernie in the primary…
I don’t want “Obama-light”. I want “change I can believe in”.
But I’m voting for Hillary if her opponent is _______________ (any candidate from the Republican clown car).
It just makes me feel so icky…
IOW, it sickens me to know that my choice will be Hillary, or some far-right leaning loon who will bring about global economic destruction.
“NEOLIBERALISM (TM)” has no home if not in the Republican party.
Why don’t we have a choice, any more? Is it the media? The RW noise machine? The stupid, reality-hating evangelicals? Wall Street? Citizens United and/or rampant money in politics? Bad court decisions?
It’s gotten so bad I can’t nail it down, any more. All of the above?
I guess I can advocate for Bernie until the cows come home, but I can’t make America any smarter, or make voters care more about what a train-nwreck, for example, Ted Cruz or Rand Paul would be.
I’m hoping for massive voter turnout in the general election because Republicans only win when “no one” shows up. Because they REALLY suck that bad.
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.
The “Patriot” Act (enabling NSA reading on your emails) up for RENEWAL on June 1. Call your representatives in DC, and tell them what you think.
Republicans, of course, do not want to do important things and certainly not do them well. They know they can but why would they? Their entire ideology is based of handing everything over to the rich, so instead of doing the people’s work, they sabotage the government.
In other words: Break the government, complain the government is broken and then push to privatize all the stuff you broke in the first place so the rich can get even richer while delivering worse service.
This is the ONLY message we need to get out to voters. Make them internalize it. Make them understand it. If you vote in a way that allows a Republican to hold office, you’re voting against yourself, your country, your children’s future … Mom and apple pie. You’re a traitor to yourself if not your country.

There is less than 1 chance in 100,000 that global average temperature over the past 60 years would have been as high without human-caused greenhouse gas emissions, our new research shows.
Published in the journal Climate Risk Management today, our research is the first to quantify the probability of historical changes in global temperatures and examines the links to greenhouse gas emissions using rigorous statistical techniques.
Our new CSIRO work provides an objective assessment linking global temperature increases to human activity, which points to a close to certain probability exceeding 99.999%.
A grand jury indicted Gov. Rick Perry on two felony counts on Friday, charging that he abused his power last year when he tried to pressure the district attorney here, a Democrat, to step down by threatening to cut off state financing to her office.
Or should we call him “Mr. President“? I mean, the guy was a serious contender in the GOP’s clown primary.
Nothing in the past few decades has eroded America’s credibility, its standing in the world, its capacity to go to war, like the war in Iraq. We expended billions upon billions of dollars and thousands of human lives in pursuit of showing off how tough we were, and the result was a disaster.
In the 2008 U.S. presidential campaign, candidates Representatives Ron Paul and Dennis Kucinich, then-Senator Barack Obama (Now President of the United States), Senators Chris Dodd, Hillary Clinton and Mike Gravel were some of the most outspoken critics of the Iraq War. Other than the Pauls, who are right about this like a stopped clock (and wrong about pretty much everything else), and are libertarians, not Republicans, has any Republican ever expressed regret for support Bush and Cheney’s illegal war of aggression? That slimy little weasel Lindsey Graham and John “bomb bomb bomb, bomb bomb Iraq” McCain (or is that John “stupid enough to pick Sara Freakin’ Palin as his running mate” McCain) are saying Putin’s doing his thing because “Obama’s too soft” on … something. Foreign policy, maybe? Whatever, as long as the certifiably insane GOP/Teabagger party isn’t to blame. For a situation that we have no control over…
Keeping Republicans out of the White House, permanently, really does matter.
But frankly, their “base” is so bug-fuck nuts, now, that anyone who could win a TeabaggerOP primary couldn’t win a general election, so we got that going for us, which is nice.
I think about McCain/Palin finishing their second term, and Palin being in line to be the next POTUS and my mind wobbles…
These greedy fuckers are keeping cumstains like Rand(y) Paul and Mike(y) Lee in office almost single-handedly. People gotta stop believing the hateful lies they spew (like, fer example, giving all of our money to 2 extraordinarily wealthy spoiled inherited wealth rich kids is somehow magically going to create jobs in this country).
Honestly, on some days I think these 2 fuckers, all by themselves, are worse for the country than the entire GOP (and the GOP’s idiot supporters).
