Renegade DU site member, Kicked off! Twitter Commentary follows!

You can follow these comments on twitter, they've been condensed to fit that format, but all you'll get is a "Running Commentary" version.




I have a dream…that one day, Liberals and Conservatives will walk hand in hand and a man will not be judged by his political leanings, but by his ability to not engage in knee-jerk voting for any politician who seems to be on his side on some issue or issues without making a proper effort to do research on the issues and how the candidates stand on the issues, hear both sides of the issue, try to be as objective as possible, and not listen to Sarah Palin.

ECOCIDE: BOYCOTT CANCUN: 57 hectares of last remaining pristine mangrove rainforest destroyed in just 1 day.


Excerpt from the article:

“The swamps have just been destroyed, in just one day, in order to clear the way to building a tourist complex, as people protest to attempt to save the wildlife.

WI GOP Civil Service Elimination: 27 yo White college dropout with 2 drunk driving convictions hired to replace top Commerce executive chemical engineer with 25 yrs of experience.

Walker puts his house up for sale as State rushes to sell off water utilities.

Yea, no red flags there.

And yet again, it’s just another piece of evidence that not even Walker believes in his economic policies for the State (State’s prosperity would “raise all boats”\home values).

Have you or #Iowa seen #Hillary's wicked evil Laugh about making hard choices?

A talking point among Liberals is how Conservatives distort the truth, but in arguing with a Conservative Facebook friend, I've discovered how overzealous liberal pundits and public relations people distort things by omissions, exaggerations, false statistics and the like, just as the Neocons do. An example of this is a friend of mine told me he thought Social Security was a "Ponzi Scheme" or at least something like it.

Attention: Senator BERNIE SANDERS, Thom HARTMANN, and America:

Here is an eloquent suggestion for a Tell-A-Vision COMMERCIAL for your campaign for U.S. President:

[It is worth $100,000 to $100 Billion dollars. Quess how much! (But, free for thee!)]

RIGGED: They poison our children, and no justice.

Their financiers kick millions of us out of our homes, and no justice.

She who would have herself lead them commits espionage, and no justice.

They kill our planet, and no justice.

And all the while, year after year, wealth continues to concentrate.

This is not governing, it is diseased self-indulgence by the few at the expense of the masses.

They tell themselves they are responsible for great acts and what they take is their due.

But they are deluded – period.

Would a Democratic President Wield Power as Ruthlessly as Trump?

Thom plus logo Interestingly, the current divide in the Senate gives us an insight into how powerful a genuinely progressive Democratic president could be, and how much he or she could get done. As we saw yesterday, the Republicans voted repeatedly to participate in a cover-up of Donald Trump's crimes.
