The provincial British Columbia Liberals of Canada are running 'witness protection program' for ousted extremist right wing political staff.
Dozens of frightened refugees have been given political asylum by B.C. Premier Christy Clark, after losing all they held dear in their homelands.
But these aren't Syrians or citizens fleeing other beleaguered nations -- they are Conservative staffers from defeated right-wing (neo con) governments in Ottawa and Alberta who have found a welcoming home with the BC (corporatist) Liberals.
It was disgusting to watch (3/30/16) Maddow misquote Bernie Sanders to set Hillary up. Hillary then went on to go along with Maddow's suggestions and imply that Bernie does not think womens' reproductive rights are important compared to economic issues. That's clearly not what Bernie said over and over again in his interview with Maddow, and Hillary absolutely knows Bernie is a life-long defender of women's rights.
Mississippi passes anti-LGBT bill that includes premarital and extramarital sex for straight couples as well!
HB 1523 would bar the state from taking action against anyone who discriminates based on their belief that marriage should be between one man and one woman, that sexual relations should be reserved to such a union, or that "male" and "female" refer to someone's "immutable biological sex as objectively determined by anatomy and genetics at time of birth."
In the mid 60s I lived near NYC. I can still remember the weekly news reports: at least one dead women found, mostly in Central Park: botched abortion. The daily blood drenched, coffin filled, Nam news kind of marginalized the impact of the coat hanger, back alley, abortion news.
It drives me crazy that whenever someone wants to make abortion illegal they are not immediately and consistently challenged to answer at least some and possibly other “so what” questions:
- Are you going to adopt these [~700,000 per year] unwanted children?
- Are you going to provide all the physical and socia
Again, we have surpassed our estimates and expectations regarding the severity of our atmosphere’s death.
All of the coverage and discussion re. North Carolina's HB2 has been about LGBT issues.
The real meat of the bill is in section 2 and prohibits any local or county govt. from enacting any rules about wages or working conditions. It also re-instates Jim Crow. The LGBT part is bad but a shiny object to distract us from the real purpose of the bill. Read the bill here: http://www.ncleg.net/Sessions/2015E2/Bills/House/PDF/H2v1.pdf
A very disturbing report came from the Sane Progressive show "Massachusetts Volunteers for Bernie Sanders Report Internal State Level Campaign Sabotage".
The video demonstrates how the Hillary Clinton campaign has been sabotaging the Bernie Sanders campaign. The image below shows Joe Caiazzo, who is the "Communications and Political Director at Bernie 2016" campaign who is ALSO working for the "Truman National Security Project" which has very strong ties to Hillary Clinton.
The Democratic party is correct about ideals but can never be unified enough to implement them! The ridiculous contention that Bernie supporters will not vote for Hillary is just another example. If we are unified, we can push Hillary farther left, as Bernie has done already. Also, she is an exemplary candidate and has all the experience you could ask for. So what is the problem? The Republicans have been waging a smear campaign against her for years.
oh well, nothing to do now but sit back and let it wash over us (pardon the pun)
