Rigged: Supreme court decides New Jersey doesn’t have to pay its contracted share of pension contributions to teachers, state troopers, and other public employees.

Republican ideology is a means to an end.

Excerpt from the article:

“Over several administrations, New Jersey has short-changed its public pensions, leaving them poorly funded.

Under bipartisan 2011 reforms, the state promised to step up contributions over seven years until reaching the full amount that actuaries say is necessary to keep the funds healthy.

Hot Mic Captures Humiliating Moment - Trump Tells Christie To Leave Stage

Addictinginfo.org.... February 27, 2016

Thankfully, Chris Christie proved he was beyond shame when he endorsed Donald Trump for president, but this moment had to sting a little bit.

In a humiliating moment for the one-time Republican presidential candidate, a hot mic captured the way Donald Trump treats his new lap dog -- and it isn't pretty.

At a rally, Christie seemed to think he could share the stage with Trump during Trump's portion of the event, but apparently the idea of sharing a spotlight with a former rival wasn't something Trump was about to let happen.

Election reform

We can eliminate big money in elections and give the power back to the people. Hoe? We do it with a performance contract. We begin with a grass root action, create a platform, recruit like minded voters, select a candidate to tun as an independent. He signs contract which requires him to inform the constituent committee policy and law that is up for a vote. The constituent committee will direct candidate on how to vote. If he fails he is removed from office immediately as per contract performance stipulations he agreed to.

"Chillary" Clinton's crony capitalism even extends to campaign tees, etc.

Hey Dems, It always pays to check out the competition: Who knows when you'll find a genuine bargain at a much lower price ... and in more ways than one.

Accuracy in Media, no fan of Clintonism, or even Bernie's cause, nevertheless did Bernie's campaign a favor by publishing this dig at Clinton's ties with Anna Winotour and how much more it's costing them to clad themselves with her garb, even what should be relatively inexpensive tees.

Disrespectful, arrogant, fuck, Bill Clinton tells US Marine to “shut up and listen”

Excerpt from the Article:

"As the heckler was hustled out of the room by county deputies, Clinton said, “His mind has been poisoned by lies and he won’t listen.”

Once the man was gone, though, a woman who apparently had accompanied the heckler and been videotaping him began her own outburst, shouting, “Hillary lied over four coffins, she lied to those families, so all those families are liars?”

Hillary uses Bernie’s message to prey on low information voters as well as voters unrepresented by Obama’s Oligarchy like minorities and the elderly.

I will not vote for Hillary Clinton and I won't vote if the Green Party is not on the ballot.

Choosing America’s next leading criminal: Poisonous social excluder (Trump) or insatiable white-collar criminal (Hillary)?

What’s worse a hate filled Billionaire who wants to be President, or wonton jackass who will focus her energy while President on trying to be a billionaire at the 99%’s expense?

HRC WIN'S IN A LANDSLIDE!

If it's any consolation to Sanders supporters; Looking like that'll probably also be the headline next November...

DEMAND THAT HILLARY CLINTON’S SUPERDELEGATES BE STRIPPED OF THEIR SUPERDELEGATE STATUS!

How our republic could die in the age of Trump - in a stunning parallel to the fall of Rome

Thom plus logo The American republic could die, just like Rome. Wavering for some time on the verge of becoming a complete oligarchy, America is on the verge of flipping from a democratic republic to a strongman or autocratic form of government, something that's happened to dozens of democracies in the past few decades, but never before here.
