41 Years this 30th April VIETNAMESE army DEFEATED AMERICA'S military

Americas trillion dollar armed forces were routed by ordinary Vietnamese foot soldiers. The supposedly most powerful Military in history went down to defeat at the hands of Vietnam regulars.

41 years ago this 30th of April in 1975, Saigon, the capital of what was then known as South Vietnam, fell to North Vietnamese forces. The event marked the defeat of America to the forces of Ho Chi Minh.

True story on deficits

There is a misconception that Republican presidents are fiscally responsible, that they cut deficits and Democrats spend, spend and increase deficits. We would have no national debt if there were no annual deficits, so I examine the trend of the deficits under the various presidents. The truth is that Democrats cut or eliminate deficits and Republicans greatly increase the deficits.

Why Democrats not Republicans - Unemployment/ Jobs

I'm frustrated by Democrats lack of messaging and so I've included truths to show why Democrats are so much better for the economy. Republican Presidents: Eisenhower brought unemployment from 2.9 UP to 6.6 %. Nixon/Ford from 3.4 UP to 7.5. HW Bush from 5.4 UP to 7.3. W. Bush from 4.2 UP to 7.8. Of course Hoover brought it UP, but I don't have numbers. Democratic Presidents: Kennedy/Johnson from 6.6 DOWN to 3.4. Carter from 7.5 to 7.5.

Enough With the Attacks on Thom Hartmann

This year’s presidential race has been nasty in a way I have never witnessed. Candidates making fun of each other’s height, attacking each others spouses, facing potential indictments, comparing genitals, attacking each other’s age… incredible. The only thing they haven’t done is attack one another’s children.

Really low-level, childish stuff, but…

Delaware Primary

FYI - Delaware's Primary today (4/26) is not an open primary. You must be registered as a Democrat or Republican to participate. I am registered as "unaffiliated"; therefore, I cannot vote today. I've heard a few media outlets state this incorrectly.

Maine's Embarassemt of a Gov. Paul LePage

I just had to share with you the latest deviant thing that our so called Gov.

Clearly Bernie doesn’t give up easy and that is a good sign for some real change.

The main stream corporate media used by the rich to subvert the will of the People by advancing puppet politicians won't say it, but let's take a moment to give credit where credit is due: Bernie clearly doesn't give up easy and that undermines that repugant bowel movement of a women Hillary Clinton's aspersions that Bernie can't or won't deliver.

SUPER-BEETS

SCIENCE DAILY (2016): A team led by postgraduate research student Rishikesh Kankesh Patel discovered that dark chocolate provides similar benefits to beetroot juice, now taken regularly by elite athletes after studies showed it can improve performance. Beetroot juice is rich in nitrates, which are converted to nitric oxide in the body. This dilates blood vessels and reduces oxygen consumption -- allowing athletes to go further for longer.

Obama’s Surgeon General’s dismissal of Zika as a non-threating fuhgeddaboudit issue is irresponsible and grotesque.

and in the meantime Hillary's paid internet trolls are working diligently to subvert the will of the people using propaganda and lies.

We are a long way from being a democracy.

Restore Arctic Sea-ice w/o CO2 Reductions

The geography of Bering Straits is thermally unique and has dried out repeatedly, this prevents warm Pacific Ocean water from entering the Arctic Basin, right now that's a big deal as it's helping to melt the sea-ice from below all winter and clathrates from above.

If dammed off to prevent the heat-transfer with the Pacific it will stabilize a large area of sea-ice on both sides of the dam, encouraging sea-ice to form earlier and stay longer.
