Donkeys are our Democratic Symbol for a great reason.. they're hard working animals..

And, these are adorable. What a wonderful idea, Ed Rendell.



Thank you, Iaaa~

I live in Hawaii now and I've heard of her.."Maui Democratic Party activist Shay Chan Hodges says

she’s running against U.S. Rep. Tulsi Gabbard"

Some of Her Main Points


First, that Gabbard has helped out billionaire Sheldon Adelson, the chairman and CEO of the Las Vegas Sands Corporation who opposes organized labor and is a major campaign donor to conservative Political Action Committees and Republican candidates. Chan Hodges noted in her essay that Gabbard has introduced Adelson-backed legislation that would kill online gambling–a major threat to Adelson’s interests.

Second, Chan Hodges noted that Gabbard has repeatedly criticized and mocked the Obama Administration for not saying we’re at war with “Islamic extremism”–something even Sanders opposes. “While I believe that no elected official should be above critique –lest we devolve into a cult of personality over substance –our district elected President Obama with a 70% majority, and a respectful discussion in an appropriate forum reflects both our district and Hawaiian values,” Chan Hodges noted.

Finally, Chan Hodges criticized Gabbard for supporting legislation that would make it more difficult for refugees fleeing the bloody Syrian civil war to get to the U.S. “n November 19, 2015, Gabbard voted with 46 Democrats and 242 Republicans to pass HR 4038 — the American SAFE Act of 2015, to institute a stronger screening process for refugees from Iraq and Syria who apply for admission to the U.S.,” Chan Hodges wrote. “Previously, in 2014, Gabbard called for visa waivers to be curtailed from European countries with “Islamic extremist” populations –specifically Britain, Germany, and France. (A year later, Donald Trump called for a ban on Muslims entering the US.)”

Hillary was so gracious and ready to work for our Country in the Senate, K.. but

fate had something else in store!

Obama: Making Hillary Clinton secretary of State one of my ‘best decisions’

snip//

Asking Hillary Clinton to serve as secretary of State was "one of the best decisions I ever made as president," President Obama told philanthropists and donors gathered Tuesday at the Clinton Global Initiative meeting in New York City.

The president showered the former first lady — and front-runner for the 2016 Democratic presidential nomination — with praise, saying he "will always be grateful for her extraordinary leadership."

Obama went on to joke that he still had "a lot of debt to pay" because of the miles Clinton traveled when in his administration. But he also praised the former New York senator for her "post-administration glow."
"She looks much more rested," Obama said to laughter.

Secretary of State Hillary Clinton leaves behind enormous 20-year legacy with exit from office following start of President Obama's second term

I admire Hillary so much for her answer to President Obama's call to service. They started working together for the good of the country and our Planet.

Thank you!

“You know, the way I see it is the Republicans waited way too late to go on the attack after Donald

Trump, and they waited until he had basically seized the nomination and then a bunch of them are saying: "Oh my God, that man is not ready to be president of the United States. That man is dangerous."

Go Elizabeth!

DOJ: Trump’s Early Businesses Blocked Blacks

Wow.. I didn't know this.. I read something just the opposite yesterday..

4. Although Massachusetts has a republican governor, the rules stipulate that if Warren submits a letter of resignation in advance, she can force a special election such that she would immediately be replaced in the senate by the people’s choice and not by an appointee. So the popular notion that she would temporarily be replaced by a republican is a false one. The only question is whether the people of Massachusetts would vote for a democratic senate candidate to replace Warren. That’s not certain, but given the state’s liberal leanings and Warren’s near-certain endorsement of her potential senate successor, it’s probable.

Very interesting, Her Sister.. thank you

I don't just want Julian Castro to bring out a stronger voting block.. I wanted him as a VP nominee to give the Latino community an historic representation on the Presidential ticket.

That's right now.. we'll see what happens. But, whomever Hillary decides I'm sure will be the best choice.

Oh, you got it on youtube.. straight up.. Thank you, Stellar!



I was looking for that earlier and they didn't have it yet.

So Magnificent!

From Samuel Leroy Jackson @ BET where he got his Lifetime Achievement Award..

Samuel L. Jackson received the lifetime achievement award and was introduced by Spike Lee. Jackson ended his speech by offering praise to Williams, calling him “the closest thing I’ve heard to a 1960s activist.”

“That brother is right and he’s true, and when you hear what he said, make sure you vote and you take eight more people with you to vote, OK?” Jackson said. “Don’t get tricked like they got tricked in London!"

Jesse Williams~


I just saw it! Oh Wow.. that was Every bit as Powerful as everyone is talking about!

"And let's get a couple things straight, just a little sidenote - the burden of the brutalized is not to comfort the bystander. That's not our job, alright - stop with all that. If you have a critique for the resistance, for our resistance, then you better have an established record of critique of our oppression. If you have no interest, if you have no interest in equal rights for black people then do not make suggestions to those who do. Sit down."




Jesse Williams!"Black Women"!
