WARNING: ALEC only needs 7 more states to write Americans out of their Democracy using “constitutional convention.”

Only in Obama's America where "State's Rights" was a dog whistle for ALEC to run free. Does the federal Government even bother to protect democracy within the "United" States?

This from Common Cause:

It’s the biggest threat to democracy that nobody is talking about.

History of the term caucus

http://community.middlebury.edu/~harris/caucus.html

This is a correction of a caller whom yesterday claimed the word "caucus" , was derived from the caucasian race's origins. I found that at the time wrong, but i could not remember then. This morning I decided to do some digging, here is the result! Do read this fantastic historical account , Click on link above

Cara Reservasi Tiket Kereta Api Online

3 simple statements Bernie could make to cure the brainwashed and crush Hillary

  1. Medicare-for-all more effectively replaces the current paycheck tax we call "Medical Benefits"
    1. insurance companies and the IRS get into my paycheck before I do, so my "Medical Benefits" already are a tax. Medicare-for-all will give me more take home pay from my paycheck than I currently get.
    2. All US companies would love to have Medicare-for-all because it removes their highest expense - employee healthcare.

Obama's Rahm Emmanuel moves to cut Chicago Teachers' Pension Funds.

Remember Obama's tax plan years back? How biased in favor of the rich it was? And now look at OXFAM's numbers on wealth disparity in the world (dominated by select Americans)

“Gated Development:” Gates & Clinton Foundations using money power to quietly corporatizing healthcare and agriculture throughout the world.

The “foundations” they are laying are that of capitalism at its most cynical.

Flint water problem

I am especially interested in the plight of the people of Flint because I lived there for 4 years during my college years (last century!). I have spent some time getting my facts on that situation and find that Hartmann has jumped to some ill-informed conclusions, directed, I suspect, by his particular worldview. Here are some facts related to that Flint situation.

FLINT, TPP, KOCHS, etc: SPECIAL INTERESTS ARE WAY OUT OF HAND!!! END IT! NOW!

Chris Mathews Bias

It was highly disappointing and disturbing when a little after 7pm Tuesday when I turned on Hardball and MSNBC (the all Trump network) and watched for what seemed an eternity Trump was on with a live press conference and engaged in stupid innane banter with the press. When Mathews finally cut away, in the background was seen Bernie Sanders in a live speech. Instead of going to Sanders Mathews proceeded to a pre-recorded interview Hillary Clinton. Instead of remaining even mildly objective, Mathews gushed and groveled at the feet of HRC.

Hillary=a republican win

Perhaps I'm preaching to the converted here, as the saying goes, but Bernie Sanders really is progressives' and the democratic party's last hope if we wish to avoid getting another republican in the White House for a while. However, the vitriol surrounding Hillary Clinton among progressives, independents, and many democratics is so pervasive, many are threatening to vote third party or even--GULP!--for the republican nominee if she gets the nomination.

If elected would\could Bernie Sanders repudiate the Demorats TTP?

anybody?

If You Want to Win, Go Progressive

The big question right now is whether to call Hillary Clinton a progressive, or a "moderate."

And then there's the question of who is more electable in a general election: an unabashedly progressive democrat, like Bernie Sanders; or a "centrist" democrat, like Hillary Clinton.
