Can y'all do me a favor?

Last night, a poster accused me of a felony without supplying evidence. The post itself is not important (I'm not looking to start a flame war), but it was utter BS and it got hidden by a jury, as it should have been.

What surprised me is that it was only hidden by a 4-3 verdict. For an unsubstantiated (and utterly untrue) accusation of a serious crime.

So here's the favor: if you serve on a jury for a post where someone is accused of a crime, or even accused of being prejudiced against others (racist, sexist, etc), can you please think twice about leaving the thing alone unless solid evidence is presented?

Serious charges deserve serious evidence.

Thanks.

I think that Bernie Sanders wants to be on the debate stage with Hillary Clinton,

if Hillary runs. He wants to provide a little context when she (or any other Third Wayer) reminds us of important functional untruths, things like lobbyists representing real people like disabled children or whatever claptrap they spew this time around. Bernie'll remind us that 95% (or whatever) of lobbying cash is for the interests of the Predator Class. That sort of thing.

And if things happen to work out, I'm sure he'd by honored to do the Presidenting.

The funny thing is that if Bernie runs, I expect that Hillary won't. She'll know she'd have an impossible task in fleeing from her history as delivered unvarnished. But if Sanders and Hillary both do run, it'll be great entertainment.

Would it be so crazy?

Would it be so crazy if we had a 24-hour DU cease-fire? A temporary truce?

No whining about the Third Way, misogyny, and the other stuff?

Just good thoughts. Just to see what it would be like.

Let me be crystal clear here with with regard to "Liberals"

If you agree with Rand Paul on any issue, we know you are truly a Paul-bot.

If you disagree with Hillary on any issue, we know you are truly a Paul-bot.

We know these things. They can no longer be denied. "Liberals" are trapped like the rats we know they are. And Clapper knows who they are and where their kids go to school.

The veil is lifted; Wachet auf!

Regards,

Third-Way Manny

I'll be crystal clear here with DU's "Liberals"

If you agree with Rand Paul on any issue, we know you are a disruptor.

If you disagree with Hillary on any issue, we know you are a disruptor.

We know these things. You are trapped like the rats we know you are. And Clapper knows who you are and where your kids go to school.

Now that the 2016 Presidential nominees are decided, I hope the Admins will enforce the Nothing Harmful to Democratic Candidates During Election Season rule.

If President Obama could save the bankers and their bonuses

Could he have been the 99%'s savior, too?

Or is that, um, different?

Amazing! At least 100 Americans are more powerful than President Obama.

I grew up thinking that the President of the United States is the most powerful person on Earth. Turns out I was very wrong.

Several times each day I read learned posts on this site which state that Elizabeth Warren* can do more good in the Senate than as President. I hate that I was wrong before, but am glad I'm wiser now and that Warren's already reached the pinnacle of power.

Although it does leave me with a few nagging questions. Like why did Senator Obama (who said he wasn't running) run for the Presidency against Senator McCain. Were they OK with less power because they got the cool plane? And the helicopters?

And why does the President get paid a lot more than Senators? Do Senators get to make their own secret kill lists?

Or perhaps Presidents are actually more powerful than Senators, but some people need an excuse for why certain Presidents haven't gotten the job done, the fundamental job of turning around the economic plight of the 99%?

Anyway, I just want to thank the good people of DU for setting me straight. This is really complicated stuff, and I'm not the brightest bulb in the chandelier.

*yes, who's really, really not running and you desperately need us to understand that, got it.

Warren/Carter (Jimmy) 2016

As long as Carter is healthy enough to be involved, he could coach Warren on how to be an effective government executive, which is the only important skill that I'd like to see Warren have more of. Or she could run with someone else who's been the governor of a large state - Jerry Brown, for instance. *That* would be a ticket I could get behind.
