Bernie and our revolution are first!
Alan, question for you on last thread.And on the home front: Gnat season is back! Makes me long for deep freezes of winter.
Susan--The bolded line in my post is a link to his Wikipedia entry. Simply not my cuppa. Cornell West would be no problem at all. Now I am wondering what certified write-in candidates will be on the California ballot, if any.--Alan
Susan--here's a quote from a Guardian article about Bernie supporters moving to Stein. --Alan=================Stein’s choice this week of the human rights activist Ajamu Baraka as her running mate might complicate the outreach. In a blogpost last September on the left’s response (or lack of it) to Saudi Arabia’s bombing of Yemen, Baraka wrote: “Sanders supporters have not only fallen into the ideological trap of a form of narrow ‘left’ nativism, but also the white supremacist ethical contradiction that reinforces racist cynicism in which some lives are disposable for the greater good of the west.“And as much as the ‘Sandernistas’ attempt to disarticulate Sanders ‘progressive’ domestic policies from his documented support for empire … it should be obvious that his campaign is an ideological prop – albeit from a center/left position – of the logic and interests of the capitalist-imperialist settler state.”
But you know what? I kind of agree with him, though I am not as fervent. Also there is no way that Jill Stein is going to win the Presidency. But I'm voting for her anyway because it sends a message to the DNC and the Democratic Party that we are NOT okay with their corruption.
Been longing for winter for a couple of months now. . .
Me too, puddle! I haven't been a fan of summer since my mid-20's when I got a nice case of heat exhaustion. Ruined me for the heat ever after.
And not just the young 'uns.Alan
This bumper sticker seems in somewhat better taste than the Nope&Noper one [Click] Same basic sentiment, though.—Alan
