I said earlier: Rachel will come around when Bernie keeps going...

She already did. She started by saying that "liberal media" was a misnomer.

She was talking about Sanders' win being an inspiration to her because she remembered the 1992 NH primary with Pat Buchanan spewing hate against gays. She was 19 at the time and said that she also knew the Democrats (including Bill Clinton) didn't "have her back".

She seemed definitely excited about the left wing Democrats actually rising up.

God--Tweety is pushing Hillary so hard--

ranting about how great it is that the mayor of Boston is sending up folks to stump for Hillary. I think he's feeling a tingle.

Iowa Democrats posting incomplete FINAL caucus results

iowademocrats.org has posted as FINAL results: http://iowademocrats.org/wp-content/uploads/2016/02/2016-IDP-Final-Precinct-Caucus-Results-PrecinctCandidateResults1.pdf

I have been looking over these so-called final results and found the following precincts which awarded NO SDEs:

Fremont Riverton 2 CD
Hancock Precinct 3 1 CD
Kossuth CR 1 1 CD
Wapello Competine Twp 1 CD

Also I find it highly unlikely that in Black Hawk WL 4-1 that Clinton got 10 county delegates and Sanders got 0 so Hillary got 1.6428571430 SDEs and Bernie got 0

Of course, this list is what came AFTER the local caucus head counts and does NOT show those.

So, who knows?

Hoping for Paul Ryan to stay home in Janesville, Wisconsin

having lost his seat in the House as well.

I wonder who this less-than-smart guy voted for...

My son came back from voting and said an older guy in line near him was talking about the last person to be elected president three times was........Teddy!

Please send the Red Cross undesignated donations

This is from a friend who works with the Red Cross in NYC who said to share it freely:

"When you read posts by people who want you to specify that donations to The American Red Cross in Greater New York (or any other relief organization) should go to a specific purpose, remind them of this:

Restricting donations to disasters that have already happened is very damaging.

BEFORE Sandy hit, the Red Cross had to already own functioning, inspected, registered, insured vehicles--and had to have money available for gas and oil. Those vehicles were used to move blankets, cots, MREs, water, and other supplies into position so they would be available once roads were blocked. Those goods already had to be purchased and in warehouses (which need insurance, electricity, etc.)

The people--90% of whom are volunteers--needed offices, which means electricity, water, heat/air conditioning, computers, furniture, printers, paper, toner, telephones, Internet service, etc. etc--all of which had to have been purchased and set up.

Do you see now why unrestricted money is so important? The Red Cross (and every disaster relief organization) needs to be able to prepare for upcoming disasters. If you restrict your donation to being used in past disasters, you are not helping prepare for the next--which could involve you."

It's donation time (but to whom) Romney Rolling in the Money


West Virginia Turnpike 30 October 2012

I agree with my right-wing friends: Vote for Obama

But avoid their fine print. (It says practice Obama abstinence!)

Repubiicans trying to distort the abortion issue totally

They are focusing on not allowing exceptions to an abortion ban so that folks will say later that we're lucky to have those exceptions still. That ignores the fact that there shouldn't be a ban at all.
