With “CRUZIFER’s” long-overdue exit, has the Mob-connected “Don” finally whacked the GOP’s last hope of retaining the Senate?

Now that the slimy, sniveling, pompous, self-righteous, bigoted, religious (aka “closed-mined”) nit-wit (aka “Cruzifer”) has finally been chased off the Primary stage by a narcissistic, temperamental, misogynistic, Mob-connected, sociopath, is it now relatively safe to presume that – in the least – the GOP’s stranglehold on the Senate will soon be over?

President Obama Speaks to Community Members In Flint, MI

The President spoke in Flint, MI regarding the drinking water crisis. It was another great speach by him. At one point, he talked about the conservative mentality that caused the issue. It's a great sound bite.

How did a Republican Pedophile almost become President

How did a Republican Serial Pedophile almost become President of the Untied States? I'm seeing very little "detail" by the Corporate Media who assigned 1000 reporters to investigate Anthony Weiner for texting a picture in his workout shorts. Note: the "unnamed" Federal Prosecutor asked for no jail time to 6 months. The max the judge could have passed was 5 years but gave this Republican 15 months. Imagine if it were a poor Black or a Democrat!!!

The Bern is a long-term affliction. Call your legislators and demand they get infected.

When Sanders wins open primaries, the wave of progressive passion is undeniable. People are connecting the dots on how CORPservative Republicans and their billionaire backers have drained fairness, responsibility, and VALUING FAMILIES from a well-conceived model of government.

Co-ops In Health Care

There are some but try and find them. Naturally there is big time push back from corporate HC.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/nation/2014/01/19/coops-poised-as-new...

Start-up cash is a barrier to entry for co-ops in the insurance industry. Once established, they are more than competitive. It seems to me that progressives should be touting this solution to high cost insurance in the HC industry. Yet nobody, including Bernie, seems to be shouting to the heavens about this alternative. Government loans for start-ups?

Hillary's Millennial Problem

75 Socialist Examples in USA today

Thom has done a rant covering America's socialism as adopted and each example is popular except with teaparty loons that want to privatize everything ie:USPS pension reg is unsustainable and will force Fedex/Ups to the fore. The party that hates regs uses them to destroy rather than benefit (fedex and ups pension plans are exempt).

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.
