Where's that thread(s)?

Okay, somewhere between midnight and three a.m. I read a couple of posts that listed the times when Sanders expressed dislike/disdain for Democrats. Now I can't find either one.

Help, please?

Well, that’s interesting.

My group of friends has been about evenly split between Sanders and Clinton. It’s been an amicable division, primarily because we’ve worked hard to keep it that way. When things have gotten testy elsewhere, we’ve made it a point to stand together as DEMOCRATS. We’ve gone so far as to invite each other to fundraisers, just to demonstrate that we are all still on the same side.

That said, it’s gotten a bit more uncomfortable the last few days. It hasn’t yet devolved into incivility, but there’s definitely an awkward edge that is increasing incrementally. The customary badinage and smiling fist bumps have apparently left on sabbatical, darn it.

Then, a few minutes ago, I got a phone call. It was from one of the fellow committee workers from our local party, and the call was about the continuing planning for an upcoming party event. Once we got that squared away, there was a moment of silence before she continued. Given that she’s been a steadfast Bernie supporter I was a bit surprised when she inquired about the Hillary t-shirts I’ve been working on; then she ordered one, in her size. That was it, and she said a rather cheerful good-bye as she was off to spend time with her grandkids.

Interesting, indeed. And I’ll give her a gentle hug when next we meet.

Bernie knows.

He knows that he will NOT be the nominee.

He also knows that won’t change by his debating Trump before the California primary.

He also knows that it would help Trump and do nothing to support the Democratic cause.

If Bernie really believed that he would be the nominee he would agree to debate Trump AFTER the convention. Debating Trump now would signal nothing more than a vengeful willingness to scuttle Hillary.

Bernie knows.

And so do we.

Que sera sera

Hillary will not be indicted.

She will be the nominee.

She will trounce Trump in November.

And I will not miss the gleeful grave dancing schadenfreude that has stunk up this place for far too long.

Just came home from the store and the neighbors were outside attempting to train their cat to a leash.

It was NOT pretty.

NV Democrats file complaint against Sanders campaign to DNC

by Jon Ralston

The state Democratic Party has filed a stinging complaint with national Democrats over the "explosive situation" and "paranoid fantasy of fraud and delegate theft" created by Bernie Sanders supporters at Saturday's state convention, warning it could be a harbinger of what's to come in Philadelphia in July.

The key section from party lawyer Bradley Schrager to the DNC's Rules Committee: "We believe, unfortunately, that the tactics and behavior on display here in Nevada are harbingers of things to come as Democrats gather in Philadelphia in July for our National Convention. We write to alert you to what we perceive as the Sander Campaign’s penchant for extra-parliamentary behavior—indeed, actual violence—in place of democratic conduct in a convention setting, and furthermore what we can only describe as their encouragement of, and complicity in, a very dangerous atmosphere that ended in chaos and physical threats to fellow Democrats."
