Okay here's what will happen election night

As much as the media (and now the FBI apparently) want this to be a horse race... it's not.

This will be a very lopsided victory for the Democrats both at the Presidential and Senate levels.

Gains in the House by Democrats, over moderate Repubs, will render it a squakbox of teahadists that Ryan must deal with...LOL...good luck with that Paul.

Yeah...GOTV of course.
No popping of corks yet.
But...she's got this.

CNN Dumped Donna Brazile

A broader look at phony TV "news".


CNN Dumped Donna Brazile. It Should Keep Going.

TV hires these people and their ilk not for their spellbinding political insights but because they’re known quantities who will provide safe and predictable idle talk. By dividing their partisan contributors between Republicans and Democrats, TV creates the illusion of impartiality and inclusion.

Anyone catch 60 Minutes cannabis hit piece tonight?

What a propaganda pantload and you can be assured was paid for by big pharma.
The same jackals who are trying to defeat Proposition 61 here in California.


When you stand up against corporate interests you get this:

Not so much for this 41 day armed occupation of Federal property.
In fact you are treated very differently throughout the process.

This country is moving leftward

Hillary as Prez with Bernie up high in a position within the new Democratically controlled Senate.

SCOTUS and any number of issues.

We've got to get the House folks...wouldn't that be something?

My thoughts on Single-Payer

I think a quality public healthcare system is a very noble idea and would move the USA on par with the rest of the modern world however...unlike the rest of the modern world our system is tied to the stock market, retirement account portfolios, huge corporate profits, advertising, etc. it is so far ingrained in our economic system that affects us personally, on many levels we don't know or have thought about, that I haven't heard exactly how we are going to untangle this mess?

The "for-profit" health system we have has tentacles and consequences I'm not sure are being thought through in detail. Yeah, it's a shame we moved away from a system that was non-profit back in the day but we are where we are and it's complicated.

No one should call themselves "Left" or "Liberal"...

...if they think tRump is somehow an equal or better choice for President than Hillary.
That simply does not add up. No way does that make sense.



Just had to get that off my chest.

Term Limits

I don't understand the point of them.

Lobbyists don't have term limits.
Big money doesn't have term limits.
The "revolving door" doesn't have term limits.

Yet when we elect someone who does good for us many are subjected to term limits.

Forcing new office holders to face the three issues I've listed does nothing to change the system.

It's big money that has corrupted our democracy and throwing inexperienced politicians into that system accomplishes what besides limiting our democracy?

Because of the 9/11 attacks

America lost it's mind.
75% approved W's illegal invading of Iraq. I didn't.

The civilian death in Iraq and Afghanistan dwarfed, by a large margin, the loss in 9/11 and was totally avoidable.

So with all the sadness and television specials about 9/11 let's not forget what it lead to. Massive civilian death via our tax dollars and mass approval for the invasions by the majority of Americans.
