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

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 . . . they are free to change their mind. And with that in mind, it is still a ways off till Convention time.

Sad but necessary meme: Bernie FOREVER But Hillary in November

Throw out all the rhetoric, the dirty politics, the finger-pointing, and the smug superiority. It all comes down to a simple fact: Senator Sanders is not likely to get the nomination without superdelegate defections, and the party standard bearers are anchored to the status quo.

We are approaching time to get in line. But it doesn't have to be with resignation. Here's the sign I'm making for my wagon's rear window:

History Draft Age in USA

I thought this was interesting. I can't vouch for the accuracy of the website.

https://www.teachervision.com/us-history/resource/5669.html

So the draft age under Lincoln was 20. (The Confederacy was 18 in 1862 then 17 later).

The Spanish-American War draft age was 18.

World War I draft age was 21.

World War II 1940 draft age was 21, and lowered to 18 in 1942.

1948 draft age was 19 (It's unclear if Truman actually drafted men before the Korean War I'll look that up later.)

Korean War and ever since draft age 18.

Say What?!? Did I hear that correctly?

Did you catch Thom tell a caller today - who wanted to discuss Hillary's *real* record : "This is a conversation we should have *after* the primaries."? After - the - primaries? Really? What's wrong with this picture?
