I will NEVER vote for Hillary Clinton

Earlier this month my brother posted something that sticks with me. Back in 1969 he was a 19 year old who had gone to college and when he clowned around they advised him to take a semester off and then re-apply. He did but was drafted instead and sent off to war. This is what he said 45 years later:

"45 years ago today a man came home from war. Just 20 months earlier a boy went off to fight. War teaches many things. The fragility of life, but at the same time, the cheapness of life. The most horrifying and yet the most gratifying moments. The bravest and the most cowardly times. The greatest friendships and the most extreme loss. Civilian life can never even come close. And to end it all on April fools day, says it all !!"

This guy is no pundit and most days it would take a lot to get more than a "Good morning" from him...

Today they announced we now have over 4000 troops back in Iraq. If we elect Bernie Sanders I believe we start to stop loving wars...

Here's a report of how a semi-private audience with the Pope happens

Read the description and ask yourself which is really closer to meeting the Pope-this, or staying overnight at the Popes residence and being given a farewell by the Pope???

"5. Re: Semi private or private audience with the pope
Sep 10, 2012, 9:45 PM
In 1992 we traveled with a group of 48 who were led by a monsignor who had close connections to then Pope John Paul II. Each couple had to make a substantial contribution/donation that was presented to the Pope during our private audience. We were on call from the time we arrived in Rome on a Monday until we finally received word to meet with the Pope on Friday. It was understood at the onset of the trip there was no guarantee we were going to actually have the private meeting based on the health and schedule of the Pope at that time.

That being said when we finally were granted the meeting it was a once in a lifetime, awe inspiring audience with Pope John Paul II. We went up single file and could greet the Pope and speak to him in English, Italian or Polish and then kiss his ring. He was quite elderly at the time but had a child like aura about him. It is something I will never forget."

Here's info on the "Hotel" at the Vatican

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domus_Sanctae_Marthae

Now if you want to prove it's easy to ambush a Pope there let's see you book a room.


The Domus Sanctae Marthae (Latin for Saint Martha's House; in Italian, Casa Santa Marta) is a building adjacent to St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican City. Completed in 1996, during the reign of Pope John Paul II, it is named after Saint Martha the hospitable, who was a sibling to Saints Mary and Lazarus of Bethany. The building presently functions as a guest house for various clergy having business with the Holy See, and as the hotel residence of the members of the College of Cardinals when they are participating in a Papal Conclave to elect a new Pope.

Pope Francis made it both his leisure and residential home upon his election in 2013 and occupies a bedroom furnished with basic necessities, a wooden standing Crucifix, along with a petite statue of Our Lady of Luján, the Marian patroness of Argentina, Uruguay, and Paraguay. Outside the Papal bedroom are two Pontifical Swiss Guards guarding the vicinity, operating day and night shifts.

I hear over in the other group they don't call them

the Goldman Sachs transcripts...

They call them the "Dead "C" Scrolls"!

Got him! What the tax papers hid!

See the itemized deduction worksheet at this link:
https://go.berniesanders.com/page/-/Bernie%20Taxes%20Full.pdf

On page 3, itemized deductions, see box 22. As you know, Bernie has claimed all along that Jane files their taxes. Box 22 shows $204 for "tax preparation fees"....There it is in black and white-he has set up an illicit payment to his wife!!!

Case closed. Now he must drop out of the race!!!

It's Bullshit. No one called Hillary a "Whore"...

A campaign surrogate referred to "corporate whores". If you were a mechanic and someone referred to you as a "grease monkey" you might dislike the term but you would certainly look either disingenuous or ridiculous if you ran around ranting that someone had called you a "monkey". It would seem even stranger if all your friends repeated the same claim. But of course no one issues talking points for the supporters of a mechanic...

Bernie supports communication company strikers?

Yep-since at least 2014 in New Hampshire...

No Mr. President-she did not "intentionally" put America in danger...

...you're thinking of either treason or espionage, which are what you would charge an SOS with if you could prove that was their intent. At this point we merely believe she behaved criminally in handling and storage of classified information. This was "careless" indeed....

Oh-one more thing, is a person known to be so careless with National Security STILL qualified to be President??? More so, or less so than someone not so tainted?

Hillary Hates Guns!

“You know, my dad took me out behind the cottage that my grandfather built on a little lake called Lake Winola outside of Scranton and taught me how to shoot when I was a little girl,” she said. Snip

Clinton touted her husband's record on gun control during his administration, and said "there is not a contradiction between protecting Second Amendment rights" and the effort to reduce crime.

I've hunted. My father taught me how to hunt. I went duck hunting in Arkansas. I remember standing in that cold water, so cold, at first light. I was with a bunch of my friends, all men. The sun's up, the ducks are flying and they are playing a trick on me. They said, 'we're not going to shoot, you shoot.' They wanted to embarrass me. The pressure was on. So I shot, and I shot a banded duck and they were surprised as I was," Clinton said drawing laughter from the crowd.

Over the weekend, Clinton sought to capitalize on remarks Sen. Barack Obama (D-Ill.) made about gun owners by casting herself as a Second American champion and reminiscing about how “my dad …. taught me how to shoot when I was a little girl.”
Shooting, she said Saturday, is “part of the culture … part of a way of life” in some rural areas of Pennsylvania, which hold its primary a week from Tuesday.
Clinton was so enthusiastic about her remarks that Obama mocked them on Sunday by saying: “She's running around talking about how this is an insult to sportsmen, how she VALUES the Second Amendment — she's talkin' like she's Annie Oakley,” the frontier markswoman.

You know what affects elections-super delegates

I will not be coy about this. In NH we have 8 and 6 are pledged to Hillary. But here's the thing-Both US senator Jeanne Shaheen and her husband Bill Shaheen are super delegates and have pledged to Hillary. Do you believe that 25% of a US state's super delegates should sleep on the same mattress???
