Looking for suggestions for internet-only service. Dropping Comcast in the next few days.

If I can find a reliable, high-speed internet-only service it would help, as I intend to drop cable service altogether and just go with the over-the air programming. I already have the boxes needed for that, as I have done it before. My only hang-up is the internet. Any ideas? Last time I kept Comcast for only internet, but I refuse to support them with any of my $.

If MSNBC wants to play this game, I will too. The minute Ed is gone, I will pull

the plug on Comcast.

Bernie just commented on Sandra Bland. No link yet. On FB.

So I just read the email re: the kick-off on the 29th. I contacted the campaign with

a few questions. I would like to host a local event, but had some unanswered questions. I talked to a lady named Samantha. They are still working on the delivery method (all the digital stuff), but it will be broadcast on the internet. So a person would need internet connection, and a monitor large enough for everyone to see. I'm not an AV guy, to I would need help. I was thinking of renting the meeting room at a local hotel. Holds 30. She suggested I go ahead and set it up, and ask for the help I need, but I am leery. What if I don't get it? I don't want to host a bum event. Also, I forgot to ask about campaign materials. Sigh. What to do..

Donald Trump tweets image of Nazi soldiers inside the U.S. flag, then deletes tweet

On Tuesday, Donald Trump (or, should we say, Donald Trump's Twitter account), tweeted one more plug for the GOP presidential candidate's campaign.

#MakeAmericaGreatAgain, the hashtag read. Then came an image of the American flag, the stars resplendently overlaid over a portrait of Trump gazing sternly at something, the stripes over motifs of American triumphalism: cash money, the White House, and soldiers.

An all-caps caption declared: "We need real leadership. We need results. Let's put the U.S. back into business!"

Except, there was a problem. As Twitter users quickly pointed out, the soldiers in the bottom-right of the image were not American. They weren't even from an Allied military. They were German World War II soldiers.

Another locked thread. Why, oh why, cannot DU show me the exact words I type

in the search within the first page of results? I always search before posting, but I'm just not going to look for a needle in a haystack. (thank you for letting me vent). I feel like locked threads are bad marks. I understand wanting to keep this place orderly, and I have served on juries more times than I can count. Was just asked to jury earlier today, and I backed out, which is pretty rare for me. Anyway, just wanted to vent, and then ask that serious question: Why does the search not put the exact words right at the top of the results? Thank you. God and the universe bless each of you for what must be a pretty thankless job. On edit: It was locked for duplicate thread, btw.

Alan Grayson To Enter Race For Marco Rubio's Senate Seat

Source: AP/Huffington Post

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. (AP) U.S. Rep. Alan Grayson, an unapologetically outspoken critic of Republicans who calls himself a congressman with guts, will enter the race to replace Republican Sen. Marco Rubio, a close friend and major Democratic Party donor said Wednesday.

Trial lawyer John Morgan said he exchanged a series of emails with Grayson in which the congressman confirmed he is going to seek the seat Rubio is giving up to run for president and asked for Morgan's help with the campaign. The announcement will be made Thursday morning.


"He's going to do it," Morgan said.

His entry into the race will set up a primary pitting a darling of the far left wing of the Democratic Party against lesser-known U.S. Rep. Patrick Murphy, a former Republican who is running as a moderate.

Maybe they killed the Iowa straw poll because there weren't enough straws for

each republican candidate to be guaranteed at least one?

Happy, happy, happy. Glad Bernie's in. Glad Bernie's a Democrat. Glad

we have a group! Bernie or bust! I can't wait to donate the maximum I can to his campaign! Just waiting on the official announcement.

Indiana's law is NOT the same as the 20-year old federal law.

The Indiana law specifically grants corporations, non-profits, businesses, churches, and corporate type entities special considerations along the lines of them being able to claim additional land for the first time ever. Land they never had before in history.
