Kudos To Mitt Romney For Calling Out Republican Racism

Good on Mitt Romney For Calling Out Republican racism.

Mitt Romney says Donald Trump will change America with 'trickle-down racism'

http://www.cnn.com/2016/06/10/politics/mitt-romney-donald-trump-racism/i...

Mitt Romney suggested Friday that Donald Trump's election could legitimize racism and misogyny, ushering in a change in the moral fabric of American society.

Who Will She Blame?

If, Thom is right, and I believe that he is, and the next Crash, even worse than the last one, occurs during the next President's first term, then who would a President Clinton blame? A President Sanders would be able to blame the Political Establishment, Trump would blame Obama, but who can Hillary blame? She has been basically running for Obama's third term insisting that everything is under control. When it all comes falling down, who will she blame? She will be so discredited that the Republicans will have no problem impeaching her.

Progressive Priorities After the November Election

Aside from trying to hold Hillary accountable to the Democratic Party platform, I believe is extremely important for progressives to build strong third party bases in those states where Bernie Sanders did very well. Specifically, the Greens, Peace and Freedom Party, Socialist Parties, the Justice Party and Working Families Party should seek "new blood" in these states.

The "Dark Uplifting Side" of a Clinton November Victory

As there exists a good possibility that Hillary will indeed become the next President, there is some solace for progressives in this as follows. We've seen what has happened to the Republican Party as the base has become so disillusioned with the hierarchy that they have basically said, "No more/mas!" to the Republican establishment. Likewise, if Hillary fails to deliver with respect to the progressive agenda during her first term, I believe you will see a similar deterioration within the democratic party.

Top Clinton Donor Apparently Appointed to Post He Wasn't Qualified for

This is very disturbing. With the Clintons it has been, and always will be, about money( large amounts )----the acquistion of it, and retention of it. Given that, GREED should not be allowed to compromise our national security in any way.

Lawsuit Filed As Bernie Wins California Apparently by a Landslide

Not a pretty picture of American democracy. We send election watchers to other countries to make sure they have fair elections. Seems we need to keep them right here at home, but then who knows, maybe they're doing the same thing over there? I was very suspicious when I saw that San Francisco and other counties that went for Obama in 2008 went to Clinton this time around. Did their politics change that much?

Culture

'Rape culture on campuses across the US' was a headline recently after the 6 month sentence case showed how common rape is on campus (and military-the one US institution that citizens hold dear and trust wholeheartedly- Pentagon Papers be damned).

Another cultural quality 1000s of special needs cases/abuse-of-kids-with-disabilities/ by their teachers. Abusing special needs kids is aka American Exceptionalism.

Pushing Bernie out

The DC Primary is Tuesday and is the last primary of the primary season and they should vote cause their votes do matter. Yes vote for Bernie cause he needs it more the Hillary and more importantly the more delegates he wins the stronger he’ll be able to negotiate for issues at the National Convention in July. Things like Medicare for all, same day voter registration to help deal with voter purges, elimination of the superdelegates, and other important issues.

Coming in November, California’s "Overturn Citizens United Act"

Thanks to Jerry Brown, Californians will vote in November to instruct elected officials to restore speech rights to the People.

AGAIN, BEWARE THE COMING GOP “VOTE HACK” OF 2016

Yes, America, just as it has been demonstrably proven in the last several election cycles (since at least 2004), your election results will undoubtedly be “tampered” with - YET ONCE AGAIN - by clandestine operatives of the GOP. Not only is this NOT a joke, but said election night hacking/“vote-flipping” will not just be confined to the “top of the ticket”, but will likely even reach into Congressional and State races, as well.

What happens in a musician's brain when they play a song?

Let's get geeky on music. Ever wonder what's happening in a musician's brain when they're actually playing a song?

What about when a musician starts improvising - starts playing music directly "off the cuff"?
