Rethinking Bernie???

Now, if you can forgive or overlook this maybe you can also overlook Hillary’s vote for the Iraq war. Yes? Or is there an alternative or two:

Bernie Sanders describes 'rape fantasy' in bizarre 1972 essay

BY CORKY SIEMASZKO NEW YORK DAILY NEWS Friday, May 29, 2015, 3:00 PM

You might consider this guy:

I've Got a Right...

Here you go, all you adamant “Freedom of Speech Whatever the Cost” advocates. Fallout from Hebdo and the “Paris Massacre.” It may be just beginning. Even here on TH you can read comments such as “these people”, “them” and “they.” There was even a post recently right here on TH supporting Pamela Geller. This is how it starts. It can easily become nasty – and bloody. For the moment, and we should be grateful, there’s calm in Phoenix.

LNG Exports...It's GOING to RAISE OUR PRICES! Russia & Ukraine play into this also!

I have been against LNG EXPORTS (Liquefied Natural Gas) for a couple of years now because of several reason. First of all, if you think they are fracking in too many areas now, JUST WAIT until they get the permits to build and export LNG to the open markets. They will be fracking in YOUR front and backyard!

The Text of the Trans-Pacific Partnership Held In Secrecy

http://www.politico.com/magazine/story/2015/05/tpp-elizabeth-warren-labor-118068.html#.VWf5BEbnhCA

An example of how dishonest business people do things. They withhold information and then try to rush you through the negotiation process before you have had time to actually read the contract text and see the flaws in the agreement. Barack Obama is now acting like a very dishonest business person in his lobbying for multi-national companies with TPP.

Extremism defined by an extremist.

one-party-has-become-more-extreme-and-one-hasnt. Facts and stats show the GOP has slip the pendulum or taken the party to the cliff's edge, but NY Times Peter Behnert says the Dems are extremists while the GOP are still vanilla. political_polarization_2014. has the graphs. Cognitive dissonance may apply, but it could be what I call Catch -24*.

"Supreme Court could deal California 'a one-two punch' on redistricting

In recent years, California voters have backed a series of changes to the state's elections system to reshape its political landscape. Now, potential upheaval is brewing again, this time from the U.S. Supreme Court.

Stumbled into a HORNETS NEST! Enemy territory!

Now and then I like to spy on the enemy to see what their spin is but this time I felt like I stumbled into a hornets nest! After reading an article that was posted on a website that I will link for you, I thought I would read the comment section. I was stunned especially when I read what one guy wanted to do to Bernie Sanders!

These people are out of their minds!!!!! PLEASE READ THE COMMENTS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE ARTICLE!

Futility In Iraq

In a rare moment of truth telling, Defense Secretary Carter stated that the Iraqi army has no will to fight. Once again they turned tail and handed over territory to ISIS.

How the Lobbyists Promote the Trans-Pacific Partnership Trade Deal

People like U.S. trade representative Michael Froman who favors the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal are now acting as lobbyists for multi-national companies so that the companies can outsource production overseas where they can get cheap labor through the overvalued U.S. dollar compared to undervalued foreign currencies, for example in China and Vietnam. Also so they can avoid U.S. Taxes. Very small taxes on U.S. imports with much higher overall taxes on U.S. manufactured goods and their productive workers does NOT follow the original U.S.

Why is it......???

Why is it that we have Federal Laws that actually makes it HARDER for a state to impose restrictions that would make oil trains safer?

Local environmental groups oppose the transport of tar sands crude, which is extremely difficult to clean up, and which they say poses a risk to the Hudson River, Lake Champlain and other areas where railroad tracks run along the shoreline.

Climate deniers are running out of excuses...

One-by-one, the excuses for failing to act on climate change are disappearing.

Earlier this month, China proved that it's possible to quickly and dramatically reduce carbon emissions. According to an analysis by Greenpeace, our planet's largest greenhouse gas emitter reduced coal use by about 8 percent in a single year.
