"You guys need to calm down and trust that Hillary has your back....."?????!

WTF... At 71 y/o and I hate when people start trying to Whitesplain to me. Hillary didn't have my back in 2008, that's why I didn't vote for her then. And I'm sick of hearing people talk about Bernie and Hillary their fanbase telling me that their particular candidate has my back. I've been here long enough to know when a particular candidate has my back.

All I said was YUCK to Don Lemon. And Now I've got to calm down because Hillary's got my back? pfftt!

and who the hell is BPM?

ETA: I agree with Maxine Waters...

I had a post of mine hidden once and it was because of

my ignorance on the subject. I do apologize, and it still embarrasses me when I think of it.

In Iowa, Martin O’Malley lays out vision for Democratic Party

In Iowa, Martin O’Malley lays out vision for Democratic Party

Des Moines, Iowa – Former Maryland Gov. Martin O’Malley says if he runs for president, he will try to pull the Democratic Party back to its populist roots.

“You know what it’s about? It’s really about calling our party back to its true self,” he said in a wide-ranging MSNBC interview airing Friday. “Our politics has been greatly impacted, for the worse, by big money and the concentration of big money.”

O’Malley, in Iowa this week for meetings and a local Democratic Party event, took a break to talk about his potential 2016 challenge to former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at Smokey Row Coffee, a bustling coffee shop on the West side of Des Moines. Clinton is expected to begin her presidential campaign as early as this weekend.

Widely known as number-crunching technocrat, O’Malley sounds pretty blunt when criticizing what he calls Wall Street’s growing dominance of campaigns and government – including some members of the Obama administration.
“For 30 years we’ve followed this trickle-down theory of economics that said, ‘Concentrate wealth at the very top, remove regulation and keep wages low so we can be competitive – whatever the hell that means,” O’Malley says.

I like that O'Malley said these big bankers need to go to jail, and that Obama had some of the wrong people on his team. Also, "O’Malley’s critiques of the criminal justice system also provide common ground with at least one Republican presidential candidate, Sen. Rand Paul." Good interview at the link.

Obama to Blame for Hurricanes, Disease -- and Everything Else

Obama to Blame for Hurricanes, Disease -- and Everything Else

Rudy Giuliani is blaming President Obama for the murder of two NYPD officers. Says Rudy, "We've had four months of propaganda, starting with the president, that everybody should hate the police. I don't care how you want to describe it -- that's what those protests are all about."

Rudy claims specifically that the propaganda against the police started with the president. Yet at no time has the president ever said anything about hating the police. Instead, he urged calm and peace. What he said immediately after police tear-gassed protestors in St. Louis:

We've got to make sure that we are able to distinguish between peaceful protesters who may have some legitimate grievances and maybe long-standing grievances, and those who are using this tragic death as an excuse to engage in criminal behavior.
Here is what Obama said to protestors in Ferguson bent on punishing the police:

That won't be done by throwing bottles. That won't be done by smashing car windows. That won't be done by using this as an excuse to vandalize property. And it certainly won't be done by hurting anybody.
Read Obama's actual words; and then Giuliani's accusation. I challenge anybody to say that what Rudy claims is simply not ridiculous. Where did Obama imply he hated police or that others should? Yet this is a pattern set over the past eight years: the right wing has blamed Obama for everything bad, no matter how far removed from Obama in reality; and given him credit for nothing good, independent of how directly his actions led to that good. No leap of logic or time or reason is too great for them to link Obama with something unpleasant; and no cause and effect no matter how obvious or self-evident is too strong for them to dismiss, reject or ignore. This political strategy is tiresome, childish, insular and counter to the interests of the American people. And frankly my dear, I'm damn tired of it. Let us set the record straight.....



He will never get any good rating with this group in the media. Everything that has happened in the country has gone very well, yet his rating are not good. WTF!

Bill Moyers conversation with Elizabeth Warren.

Elizabeth Warren on Hillary Clinton

In this 2004 clip, Warren recounts a meeting she had with first lady Hillary Clinton in the late 1990s, her positions on bankruptcy legislation at that time, and how everything changed after she became a New York senator.

There are several other conversations with Senator Warren at the link.


White-on-white murder in America is out of control

White-on-white murder in America is out of control


"Blacks represent 13% of the population but commit 50% of the murders; 90% of black victims are murdered by other blacks," writes Time's Joe Klein, calling for "provocative" thinking on race in America. "The facts suggest that history is not enough to explain this social disaster."

Yet the disturbing truth, according to the FBI's most recent homicide statistics, is that the United States is in the wake of an epidemic of white-on-white crime. Back in 2011, the most recent year for which data is available, a staggering 83 percent of white murder victims were killed by fellow Caucasians.

This is not to say that white people are inherently prone to violence. Most whites, obviously, manage to get through life without murdering anyone. And there are many countries full of white people — Norway, Iceland, France, Denmark, New Zealand, and the United Kingdom — where white people murder each other at a much lower rate than you see here in the United States.

On the other hand, although people often see criminal behavior as a symptom of poverty, the quantity of murder committed by white people specifically in the United States casts some doubt on this. Per capita GDP is considerably higher here than in France — and the white population in America is considerably richer than the national average — and yet we have more white murderers.
