Champion UFC fighter Ronda Rousey's Feeling the Bern...

(cross-post from Bernie Sanders Group)
“I’m voting for Bernie Sanders, because he doesn’t take any corporate money,” Rousey said. “I don’t think politicians should be allowed to take money for their campaigns from outside interests.”

Check in here if you have a L0oniX fly!

I love these flies.... I wish I could thank the LORD OF THE FLIES!!!

Yeah... it's so contrived, this campaign commercial...

But, it ain't Bernie's. I'm cross posting it here, because I'm sure my comment would be unwelcome in GD-P. But, I can't help but notice because it's very obvious to me as a viewer how "constructed" it is. if I went for, "phony heads nodding on cue... or, if I was to think up something phony or staged, not spontaneous, THIS would be the commercial...


Which makes me all the more appreciate genuine dialogue with people who don't need to "nod" on cue. They have a genuine connection with Bernie Sanders.... and she... does.... NOT.

This Saturday's report (hitting the streets of Pittsburgh for Bernie Sanders)

We've been doing a few Saturdays so far... first one was a few weeks ago, university area of Pittsburgh (CMU and Pitt). Today, Squirrel Hill area of Pittsburgh Major areas around Synagog and shopping district.

MANY young and older people with excellent response. MANY cars honking and thumbs up, most of whom were black drivers who shouted "Go! BERNIE!!!"

Very encouraging. Next Saturday, we'll hit Wilkinsburg, which is a socially/economic strained area.

Anyone reading this in the Pittsburgh area, please PM me!

You'll Love Naomi Klein's Take on the Pope's Popularity...

Responding to host Larry Wilmore's question on why the pope has become such a celebrity, the This Changes Everything author said, "I don't think it's about religion. I don't think it's that suddenly people are converting to Catholicism. I think basically he's kind of like Bernie Sanders in a white dress, and people are psyched about it."

Eulogy to Mr. Mickey 2 Feb 1996 - Sept 10, 2015

I'm not going to take up too much space in GD for this, but I hardly ever go to the pet group, and …. well, I AM Mr. Mickey's Mom. I always will be. Forever and ever in my heart he goes on living, just like his departed sister, Mallory, his nemesis sister, Scoobie, his loving big sister, Jessie…

Heart aches now, but this in time will pass. I just want to say one thing about my boy, who lived such a wonderful life with me that I took him up for my DU name. The things we see in life where nature on its own is concerned… These are lessons for us. If we watch animals, they forgive, they have unconditional love. They shape and mold us, just like my heart was re-arranged.

There will never be another one like this boy. So many DU posts with him on my lap at the board. I dedicate this post to him.

What would you give these infants to calm their rash?

How Did We Become...

Hateful Little People… ?
I just pondered Freak Kitchen's ultimate little question…

They never tell you face to face
They are the one and only race
They always smile and are polite
They go through life in black and white (Hey!)

They close their eyes and all is bliss
They always scent a prejudice
They cannot spell hypocrisy
They're everywhere, they're you and me

How did we become
Such hateful little people?
How did we become
The scab that we are?
Is it coming through
Hateful little people?
How did we become
The scab that we are?

I hate you, hate
You hate me, hate
Hate ourselves, hate

Bernie Sanders… A Man On Fire!

August 23, 2015 12:00 AM By David M. Shribman / Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

Well, well, well… If it isn't one of the best, "My Point" opinions I've read from him in a while…

EXETER, N.H. — There was a man with a “Stop Puppy Mills” T-shirt and another whose shirt read “National Sarcasm Society.” There was a woman, dressed entirely in white, holding a banner reading “Lead Us to Clean Energy.” There was a man with an Apache haircut. There was even a little old lady in tennis shoes.

This could only be a Bernie Sanders rally.

And the lady in tennis shoes? She was here mainly out of curiosity. She voted for Mitt Romney in the last two New Hampshire primaries.

Then there was the candidate himself. He wore a dress shirt, open at the neck, and his speech started early and ended late. He used the word “billionaire” more than half a dozen times, and he sprinkled his talk with references to “Corporate America.” He spoke about big campaign contributions (he has none, wouldn’t take any) and the “grotesque level of income and wealth inequality in America” (he deplored it) and won his biggest applause when he said, “This is a rigged economy, an economy that is not sustainable, and that is not an American economy.”

But he wasn’t done yet. In the sweltering confines of the Exeter Town Hall — every seat filled, the back of the hall five deep with standees, the balcony jammed and every one of the seven granite steps outside occupied with the devout, the devoted and the determined, all drenched in heavy perspiration — he launched into his speech: full employment, the Citizens United decision, gay marriage, voter suppression, the Trans Pacific Partnership, student debt, climate change, acidification of the oceans, access to abortion, energy efficiency, the criminal justice system, prison reform, mental health and crumbling infrastructure. In one sentence he crammed in the words “racism,” “sexism” and “homophobia.”
