FACEBOOK is alive with posts claiming that if only one state goes Bernie, that will force the electoral college vote. Please address this, Thom, and explain why this does or does not work--and please post it for readers as I may miss you saying this on the air. Thank you, trying to hold down the fort here.

Most likely this 'new movement' was started by 'right wing saboteurs' , 'agent provocateurs', to deliberately split the left wing vote. STOP being so stupid.

I have doubt its a right wing subversive, agent provacateur, who is trying to split the left wing vote, its their only hope. But dumb ass America just might fall for this, because of course Americans are the stupidest f^<king electorate on the planet.

I haven't seen any evidence other than Felicia's post claiming Facebook is alive with posts claiming that if only one state goes Bernie, that will force the electoral college vote. Not able to link? Regardless its a dutiful troll or a paid troll typically believing lies and cheating are legit means to the end. Since the "end" is all that matters, anything goes. You think half of the people may be actually thinking about casting their votes for Trump shows the world they do indeed have something to fear.

CA didn't get to where it is by being stupid. We got out of Juniors debt and have safe affordable access to homegrown healthcare. Browne just stopped cops from stealing peoples property under forfeiture and confiscation scams. Giants are in the wildcards and the Steelers kicked KC's butt. Plus my GWPH stock I use to buy pot went up $50.00 in September. Life ain't so bad and Trump is still a sick joke. Not surprisingly since republicans have no sense of humor.

Trolls of Fascism
When a Company's Product Is Under Fire, One Option is to Plant a Defender in the Chat Room, New York Times, Thursday, October 14, 1999). Bivings work, premised on the power of the Internet, engages in covert online attacks and web based front groups.

The Bivings Group is a PR firm whose clients include Monsanto, a company with a long history of harmful practices impacting the environment and human health.. They seem to specialize in the creation of fake grassroots Astroturf supporters for their clients.

Osborn & Barr was formed in 1988 with Monsanto as its founding client. The company's slogan is, "We create belief." - Friday, January 15, 1999 Osborne & Barr to harvest Monsanto's ag marketing.

The vote goes for what the voters will end up with in reality at the end of election day. Two choices are between obedient authoritarians willing to follow whomever is appointed in charge. Even Junior Bush or George Wallace or a B actor as Gov he was trying to bomb college kids. As GHWB's side kick he wanted star wars control of the planet. Most popular GOPer in modern history. Now they have sunk to lhe level of an ignorant reality show host? I think trolls will never make enough money to justify the lost sleep from their devious acts.

Most of the Drumpsters are voting for Hate. Against Americans as they did against Obama. For no other reason than Hate, they obstructed tax paid legislature. They are told to vote against their own best interests, and do. By Fear hurled daily with no more evidence than Denialists have to obstruct Science from Global climate changes to Wars both foreign and domestic. They fight against their own families interests.

GOP Leaders Celebrate Stochastic Terrorism
The use of mass communications to incite random actors
to carry out violent or terrorist acts.

Arpaio: Why are GOP hero's such slimeballs?

The Nixon drug war has stolen Trillions of tax dollars based on the same lies and lack of evidence. More abortions in Bible Belt cotton fields, unregulated factories and waste dumped into rivers. For water used by the same lame brains voting in the Deregulators. The most impoverished rural whites Hate keeping them in poverty. Keeping them and their kids sick from fossil fools crude or Fracking contaminating aquifers.

Workers living with the Asbestos side effects, info hidden from them for two decades by what is now called Haliburton. Same corp taking short cuts at the BP gusher in the Gulf. Same corp headed by Cheney, who as VP exempted them from the Clean Air and Clean Water Acts. Now earthquakes previously dormant enough to build nukes over. Yet its a red state. Clear cutting forests when Hemp is 4 times more yield. Blowing up mountaintops for coal Mr Peabody's trains take away with the profits.

The poorest Appalachian Americans clinging to their land, voting red, waiting for the trickle down Corporations that have no intentions of doing. Carolinians watching their mills and factories move to India all while prohibitionists scare them out of growing Hemp. Without the 90 million pounds of Monsanto poisons they used for cotton. Impoverished Indians with Sovereignty, having their Hemp crops cut down by DEA or their water destroyed by leaking pipelines re-routed from higher rent districts.

Not that the Neocons honor Treaties anymore than Constitutions. Cliarence Thomas fighting for Monsanto, as their lawyer. Protecting them from lawsuits for dumping Dioxins into the Mississippi River. Then as SCotUS, deciding on their patenting GMO seeds. No vested interest. Neocons have no allegiance with Americans or any country. They rule on profits over people. Treating misery they create. Cancer to Alzheimers. Vietnam to Iraq. While banning remedies known for thousands of years simultaneously fast tracking Aspartame, Ambian, Oxy and Ritalin.. Plea bargain informants and profit prisons filling with the poor as an economic stimulus package ALEC lobbied up with MaxCap contracts.

Conservatives Have Larger 'Fear Centers' in Their Brains

Louisiana Dungeons are anti-American, anti-Humanity.

Outsourcing, prison slave labor or importing slave labor all profit the corporations while the workers have no rights or fair labor standards and wages. The GOP battle cry to build a wall and its the GOP enabling it from coercing maids and restaurant labor to gardeners. Parallel to WalMart or MalWart cheating workers by cutting weekly hours, avoiding basic benefits the tax payers subsidize while the corporation profits. Who shops MalWarts? The Reds.

Jerking flags shouting slogans to protect the guns rights to be sold. Then stolen and resold to Americans or Not. To justify more guns sold. They have the 2nd amendment right to avoid comma's. btw Flags made in China with Iraqi and Iranian crude oil. Taking American's jobs. Buying bullets and bombs for the terrorists. Same Reds voting in the chicken hawks with the inbedwith media cheering them on. I think Bernie supporters will keep Hilary in line more than blind faith chicken littles following orders to not question the goper gods.

The Corporate Muzzle
This, of course, means that unless you’re already consciously avoiding these mainline media sources, then most of the news and entertainment that makes it onto your screen and into your mind comes from a small pool of corporate sources, all of which play important roles in delivering propaganda, social programming and perpetual crisis narratives to the public.

With a Neocon media dividing as much as the trolls. So I choose to vote for Hilary since Bernie isn't running and she has half of her constituents already moving her platform towards reality. GOP voters are pathetic for the most part. Protesting protesters? Or what they are told to protest. Just bring the beer that also causes fetal brain damage the gop religionists anti-choice never mention.

From lies in Congress claimed as not to be taken factually. To flat out fake video's to stop a group from helping families get out of the rent rackets into affordable housing. Then to shut down clinics in rural areas helping anyone, but especially helping pregnant women with prenatal care. How can they show their face after realizing their roads are paved with deception, and maybe the very naive can claim good intentions. Both lead to a proper justified destination.

Anyone left with any doubts.
There are only 2 Party's capible of winning. 3rd Party's siphon votes. GOPers depend on low turn outs. Voting against the peoples needs Bernie fought for is voting for corporate profits. Including profits of war. That's an average election. Trump is proof the GOP SCotUS rulings are selling elections, Cheapening the Ideals of the Founders and tormenting Americans into record numbers of pharmaceutical treatments and billions in profits. To not vote or vote 3rd Party is no different than the GOP sheep obediently voting GOP Hate. With similar results neither side will be Pursuing much Happiness.

At least voting Hilzy has Bernies Movement holding her accountable. The RNC can't even control the Donald and the gop voters have more faith in faith than fact. Believing false prophets for profits over potential brain ache thinking for themselves. Shoo troll.

90% of American Media Controlled by 6 Corporations

"All propaganda must be so popular
and on such an intellectual level,
that even the most stupid of those
towards whom it is directed will understand it.
Therefore, the intellectual level of the propaganda
must be lower the larger the number of people
who are to be influenced by it."

"Through clever and constant application of propaganda,
people can be made to see paradise as hell,
and also the other way around,
to consider the most wretched sort of life as paradise.
From Benito Mussolini
contributing to the "London Sunday Express," December 8, 1935
