US Domestic Politics

Discussion of US politics and their world impact.

Gay Homophobes/Women Sexists

An older Maher episode

hits on the title topics and Maher's assertion that people shouldn't have kids, or more than 1 or 2 kids.

I'll add another, I bet there are ignorant liberals, maybe even an intelligent conservative. I dunno about the latter.

Conservatives never did embrace voting rights for women and minorities. Paul Weyrich said it back in the 1980’s. The more people vote, the worse Republicans do in elections.

How to keep millennials streaming to ballot box if HRC is nominee. Hint: H Reid

This is what the Democratic Party should have the guts and foresight to do. Senate Minority Leader Harry Reid of Nev. is retiring in January. Imagine the ramifications if Bernie was to take over that roll, perhaps as early as Sept. while Hillary hits the campaign trail. Sanders can then call on his followers to RETURN THE SENATE to DEMOCRATIC CONTROL and make him MAJORITY LEADER.

The CIA Just Declassified the Document That Supposedly Justified the Iraq Invasion

Thirteen years ago, the intelligence community concluded in a 93-page classified document used to justify the invasion of Iraq that it lacked "specific information" on "many key aspects" of Iraqi President Saddam Hussein's weapons of mass destruction (WMD) programs.

Trump Hillary statistical tie - new poll - Hillary begging to be saved

Sanders Still Strongest Candidate as New Poll Shows Trump and Clinton in Near-Tie

Trump has not started to run attack Ads on Hillary which we've all seen on Hillary lying and corruption. Bernie won't run attack Ads, if he' did he'd be way ahead. Once Trump starts them Hillary will be crushed. Go to youtube and search "Hillary Lying" and see what will be run on the Corporate Media Networks.

Union Of True Believers

To a cheering crowd Cruz reveals his running mate to be Fiorina. What a tandem. What is simply amazing is the notion that Cruz believes that he is still in the running for POTUS. He is now joined with another true believer in conservatism. In both cases the ego surpasses the intellect. Naturally our tabloid main stream media carried the speech by Carly who in her great wisdom proclaimed that "we must take our country back." The crowd cheered wildly. Sad.

Thoughts on the Superdelegates

I suspect it hasn't been lost on many of you that if the superdelegates were taken out of the equation at present, Bernie would actually have more delegates than Clinton. What is disappointing about the superdelegate process to me is that most of them already commit to a candidate before the primary/caucus process has already begun. I really believe the ethical thing is for the superdelegates to announce their intentions after most, if not all of the primaries are over. On the upside, just because a superdelegate announces his/her intentions, it is not written in stone . . .
