The Invisible Elephant in the Political Closet

Few Americans know the name Vasili Alexandrovich Arkhipov, but almost all of us owe our lives to his courage.

Back in the late 1950’s the “Cold War” between the Soviet Union and the United States was near its peak. The wet dreams of our weapons manufacturers were being realized as our mass media and opportunistic politicians drummed our populace into a fever pitch of fear and loathing of anything “Russian” or “Communist.” The “Red Scare” was in full swing.

Bernie Sanders's Feud With the Democratic Leadership Heats Up

It seem that she been at this for sometime, I have a feeling that it about to start coming to a head. (these are 3 articles that seems to say she is not impeccant.)

Elections

Changing election day to an entire weekend of voting and or absentee ballots would diminish the Republican party to the size needed to take back the USA for the heirs of the veterans who fought for and built the USA.

Misguided efforts

There should be as much effort put into constructing and funding orphanages as there is fighting abortion.

Common Core is NOT a national standard.

The Common Core State Standards are common standards developed by a coalition of industry experts and educators. Each state has the choice to adopt these common standards or not. The federal government is not involved and they were not created on a nation level. Further more, state testing is related but separate from common standards. In other words, you can have common standards without requiring state testing.

Benghazi

There should be BUNKERS in every Embassy,

Starting with the Middle East.

Vote Senator for the Billionaires Mitch McConnell out of office!

The Bernie Sanders Campaign has proven that the people can raise $189 million dollars. It is time for the Senator for the Billionaires Mitch McConnell to be voted out of office.

Why Voting for Trump is Logical Vandalism, Why “Bernie or Bust” is a Good Thing, and How Hillary can Easily Loose in November

It is very likely Hillary Clinton will be the Democratic Candidate. I will support Bernie until he concedes, and I look forward to his leadership of our Progressive Revolution as long as he wants. But, for now, let's be coldly practical and assume Hillary ends up as the Democratic Candidate.

Senator Bernie Sanders is now a MOVEMENT

IT'S A NEW WAY OF THINKING, IT'S A NEW WAY OF BEING, ITS A VOTING REVOLUTION.

Senator P. Leahy, Governor P. Shumlin, former Governor H.

AMERICA Your RICH HANDLERS say you CAN'T TOUCH THIS

Eat your heart out America, your 'rich handlers ' won't let you have what in most civilized countries is a basic human right. Single payer government run health care. You know, Medicare, you already have it, but these greedy bastards , 'your rich handlers' see huge profits in extorting money from Americas sick and dying .

In Canada just north of your border, Canadians have enjoyed single payer government run health care since 1967. And whats more for the most part its free, I say free because its paid for out of general tax revenues.

Another perspective from the Post

New York Post has an article which points out that Clinton may not be ahead 3 million popular votes because Sanders' caucus wins do not increase his popular votes. Very intriguing.

American Progressivism? Really? Tell That to The Parents of Trayvon Martin.

George Zimmerman has sold the gun he used to kill Trayvon Martin four years ago. Zimmerman shot and killed the unarmed Black teenager near his Florida home in February 2012, and will collect $138,900 for the Kel-Tec PF-9 9mm handgun after bidding closed recently on the website unitedgungroup.com.

FTT

If we really want to help Bernie win here is the answer to what his critics are saying and what Hillary will attack him on. "He's going to raise taxes in a huge way to pay for his social programs." There is another way. A way that I love because I hate the big banks and what they repeatedly done to our country.

The following data is from the 2011 World Federation of exchanges broken down by type of trade and total annual contracts. If we were to impose a small $100 fee for each side of each transaction the dollars generated would look something like this:

Bernie or bust is not supporting Bernie's campaign

I’ve been a big Bernie fan since the first time I heard “Brunch with Bernie”. I was one of the 28,000 to see Bernie in Portland early in the campaign, I've contributed to his campaign and I voted for him in the recent Oregon primary. He has set the goals and standards higher for the Democratic Party and this nation. That said, I'm truly confused by the Bernie or Bust movement. I would think they would understand what has been a core of his campaign.
