Bernie is most firstly.Here's an article I came across on USLAW's web site:Hillary Clinton and Her Hawks - ClickIn her arrogance,she's even showing open disrespect for Pres. Obama and his foreign policy.
She has a very belligerent masculine vibe. I don't sense any "womanly" attributes from her.......nurturing, compassion, empathy......none of those. She's too busy trying to prove she's the toughest guy in the room.
I suspect that she internalized the idea that women must be warlike to hold high electoral office in the US. I remember when she threatened Iran with nuclear annihilation. Iran, which has never invaded another country! I expect a state of permanent war to continue under her; I do not expect to enjoy a peace benefit.And here's a little more food for thought:The Return of the Luddite President [Click] "Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton would each bring a tech-challenged record to the White House." I read somewhere that HRC has not driven an automobile in a quarter century.--Alan
Elsewhere I blog, watching decade old friends falling apart over Trillary (or is that Clump?). I am astonished to watch some brains I'd always thought were pretty good coming apart over this election.Last election, a nephew of mine put up (on facebook) a picture of a crowd at a "Romney" event. When I sourced it for him (pic of an Obama rally in 2008, he took it down, and had the grace to be embarrassed. Now, they just defend their right to publish what they want from any source they want. Weird as hell.
Trillary or Clump..I like that. I also like Colbert's "pantsuit vs. lawsuit".
She is the lesser of two evils. But the lesser is still evil.I make this observation as much to remind myself as for any other reason. When I hear anything about Trump, I always think, "At least Clinton..." That is not helpful thinking.
Here's a fun (:P) factoid from Robert Reich's FB page:Only 9 percent of Americans chose Trump or Clinton as nominees to be president of the United States, according to a great pictograph by the Times . Here’s how the Times arrived a the figure:1. The United States is home to 324 million people. 103 million of them are children, noncitizens or ineligible felons, and they do not have the right to vote.2. 88 million eligible adults do not vote at all, even in general elections.3. An additional 73 million did not vote in the primaries this year, but will most likely vote in the general election.4. The remaining 60 million people voted in the primaries: about 30 million each for Republicans and Democrats. But half of the primary voters chose other candidates.5. Just 14 percent of eligible adults — 9 percent of the whole nation — voted for either Mr. Trump or Mrs. Clinton.
"None of the Above" always wins. I am reminded of the Nobody for President Campaign [Click] with Wavy Gravy (which was really a get-out-the-vote campaign, with humor).Speaker: Whos' gonna lower your taxes? Crowd: NOBODY! Who's always gonna tell the truth? NOBODY! Who's gonna help you when you're down and out? NOBODY!etc. Probably on YouTube too.--Alan
Well, I just got home from having dinner tonight with Nurse Teri Mills, Jim Dean (yes, Howard's brother, in charge of DFA), and MA nurse Debbie Orre. We met at Vermont Pub & Brewery, where we had a Blogger Bash lang syne. I was so moved to be invited (because of my support for the National Nurse legislation). Jim is so real! He's as frustrated as we are that Howard supports Hillary. (See, it's ALL families! Ha!) Their brother Bill Dean's wife died unexpectedly last week of a heart ailment. So sad! But there is much hope for the future and it seems that DFA and Our Revolution can work together just fine. I said, "The more the merrier" and Jim immediately said, "That's true!" I'd forgotten how much Jim sounds like Howard! It was great to see Teri again and to meet Debbie. It's the first time we'd been together since Marcia Moody died. I love this woman!! She is working so hard for the National Nurse legislation. :-)
Glad you had a good time, Listener.It's also very good to hear about DFA and Jim's frustration. You know, their e-mails still come with the from line of Gov. Howard Dean. I was so frustrated today that I very nearly unsubscribed. Stopped myself at the last minute. Next time you're talking to someone at DFA you might mention that, sadly, Howard's name is no longer an asset.
Too true, Cat. Howard's name has become a real turn-off for me.
Cat, they pretty much know that. But, he is the founder and his (albeit frustrated) brother is in charge. But please know that since the WikiLeaks, I know people have moved their Dem contributions over to DFA. After all, please remember that DFA let the people decide (not Howard) and went ahead and endorsed Bernie Sanders, not Hillary Clinton!
That is absolutely true, Listener. Yours truly voted in their poll and was delighted when Bernie won it.
Yes, I met Jim here in Columbus, Ohio back in the day when we were having a big regional meeting of all the DFA groups, and Meet Ups for Dean and stuff. He does sound exactly like Howard.
listener, you may come to regret that you gave me the "formula" for publishing links. ;).http://politicsbreaking.com/heres-hillary-clinton-lose-travesty-election/
GOSH! *Smacks head*Happy Anniversary, Renee & Demetrius!!! ♥ ♥
Link Away, Susan! :-)It might do your heart good to know that Jim mentioned that he wouldn't be surprised if we soon have more than two parties. I told him I'd recently postulated that both the Republican and Democratic Parties seem ready to split. He thinks it's possible.
I think we *must* have more choices! "Like it or leave it" politics is just not working for the majority of Americans. Plus, I believe both parties have shown themselves to be too corrupt to be allowed to continue as the sole options.
As for the GOP, I think it is going the way of the Whig Party [Click]; the parallels are very striking. As for the Dems, I think we may be seeing in them a phenomenon well known in large business failures--seeing the future, but being unwilling to change because the old system/product remains their principle source of revenue, until it is too late. Kodak is a good example; their researchers foresaw the rise of digital photography, and obtained several basic patents for the technology. But the directors were not willing to move to digital photography because it would largely destroy their main business--film photography. In the end, about all Kodak had left to sell were its digital photography patents. I see the Democratic Party clinging onto their massive, dinosaurian organization while it is bypassed, outmaneuvered and rendered powerless by an independently organizing populace armed with smartphones. It's enough to make even ME think of getting one of the things, and learning about Twitter, Facebook and suchlike. (Just a temporary flash of madness, nothing to worry about...)--Alan
I remember when there were four parties -- for one election (1948). The fact is that with a constitutional system that makes the presidency crucial and first-past-the-post voting, more than two parties is simply not a stable system.
Thank you, listener! <3
