#BernieMadeMeWhite Is the Top Trend on Twitter and It Is Hilarious

Twitter is expertly skewering the corporate media for erasing the contributions that people of color have made to the Bernie Sanders campaign with #BernieMadeMeWhite.

Behold Count Trumpula, Bewitching the Weak and Draining Their Souls for the Promise of Eternal Bliss

Many would liken the rise of Donald Trump to that of Mussolini, cloaking fascism in pride and division. But I think the core of his appeal comes from an even darker menace. Foreseeing the frustration of toeing the line of false piety within the Republican base, Trump came prepared to offer a far more intoxicating alternative.

Bernie Sanders Just Unleashed on Arizona Primary Disaster

A Clear Look at Chosen Delegates: Bernie vs Hillary

I have posted a Democratic delegate chart in my member blog . It shows the chosen delegates (meaning primary and caususes) and ignores the superdelegates. I am ignoring them because there will be incredible pressure for super delegates to allign with the majority of democratically chosen delegates, so that is the most important thing to keep track of.

Peoples Budget

As a liberal I am also in favor of smaller government. Lets start with cutting the military, Subsidies for Corporations and Welfare for Millionaires. Let's build our infrastructure and provide College Education so that we can compete with the rest of the world.

WASHINGTON — There’s one big rule for the American

Revolutions are never nice - or pretty

Bernie's politeness towards HRC in this campaign will win him a lot of admiration but it won't win him the nomination. Sadly, nice guys usually do finish last, especially in today's world. Civility doesn't play well in American politics because it is typically seen as a sign of weakness. Bernie needs to make some attention drawing headlines by LOUDLY and repeatedly calling Hillary out on her lies and contradictions. He needs to expose her real record and agenda that the majority of Americans are too ignorant or indifferent to see.

America-Land of the Ignorant Sheep

Look at the Hartmann Report info on Nixon's administration starting the Drug War to suppress the left and black people. It fundamentally changed the country and we are still suffering the consequences today. Check out the govt COINTELPRO program that purposefully infiltrated the Black Movement in the 60's and destroyed the attempt by the black community to gain power. Look at how benign marijuana in the 60's was replaced in the black community by heroin in the 70's and crack cocaine in the 80's.
