Fracking is fine...apparently.

This guy concerns me and I think should be of concern to every Democrat who cares about the environment.



Hillary Clinton Picks TPP and Fracking Advocate To Set Up Her Whitehouse




As a senator, Salazar was widely considered a reliable friend to the oil, gas, ranching and mining industries. As interior secretary, he opened the Arctic Ocean for oil drilling, and oversaw the botched response to the BP oil spill in the Gulf of Mexico. Since returning to the private sector, he has been an ardent supporter of the TPP, while pushing back against curbs on fracking.

The TPP would enhance the ability of corporations to sue to overturn environmental regulations, but Salazar helped a pro-TPP front group, the “Progressive Coalition for American Jobs,” argue the opposite.

In a November 2015 USA Today op-ed that Salazar co-wrote with Bruce Babbitt, the two men argued that the TPP would be the “the greenest trade deal ever” by promoting sustainable energy. Both Salazar and Babbitt cited their former positions as interior secretaries to boost their credibility.


Shortly after leaving his post at the Obama administration, Salazar appeared at an oil and gas industry conference to argue in favor of fracking.

“We know that, from everything we’ve seen, there’s not a single case where hydraulic fracking has created an environmental problem for anyone,” Salazar told the attendees, who included the vice president of BP America, another keynote speaker at the conference. “We need to make sure that story is told.”

22 Million Emails!!!

22 million RNC emails erased from a private server. I don't recall an intense scrutiny or "outrage" like Hillary is getting. And many of those, no doubt, were communications regarding the lead up to the illegal Iraq invasion.

John Oliver asks tRump to "drop out"

It isn't over...not by a long shot



In fact we've only just begun.

While many Hillary primary supporters are gleeful that an estimated 73% of us Bernie supporters will vote for her in the general election I think they should take notice. After she trounces tRump she cannot go back rightward. She would do so to the peril of Democratic Party unity. It's incumbent upon all of us to fight for a Democratic Party Congress and hold her to her promises on TPP, minimum wage, college tuition, green infrastructure, Keystone XL, universal healthcare, etc...

This is just beginning. What Bernie has brought to the surface is not going away.

"Conservative Values" "Family Values"

Notice how every time a rightwingnut says these the listener is just suppose to assume what they mean?

If anyone ever says this directly to you simply ask them to list these "values" and detail them.

Anyone ever do this? I'm curious as to their answers.

Flag Lovers

I see so many U.S. Flag Code violations today and every day by those who claim to "love the flag" it makes my head spin.
I doubt if they've ever took the time to read it.

But by God don't you dare step on it or burn it.

This is what I fear:

Trump softens his tone, with the help of the corporate media, on Mexicans, Muslims, and women.

He runs more populist than Clinton on trade (jobs), big money in politics, and military foreign intervention. He already is starting to do this and with the the attention span of the American public being short as it is falls for it.

The media molded B grade actor Reagan into a President so I don't underestimate the power of the billionaire class messengers.

Are my fears justified?

Good news not making the 'news'

Correct me if I'm wrong but isn't the Obama Administration the least scandal ridden in modern history?

You'd never know it though.

Trump and Canada

We're heading to Alaska via British Columbia in our RV.
We have met many Canadians and almost everyone has brought up their disgust and fear of tRump.
One guy joked that the Canadians would have to build a wall to keep Americans out if he became Prez.
To a person they hate him.

This jackass is not liked or respected up here.

OBTW...We're in Dawson Creek now heading up the Alaskan Highway tomorrow. Windy, a little rainy, and warm here. Sporting our "Bernie 2016" bumper sticker all the way!
