Some even receding the other thread.

Next time I commit a crime I'm going to get Charles Manson to announce it to the world.

That way it'll be OK.

Please rec if you want the DNC to comply with their own impartiality rule.

So Debbie had Miranda at DNC request that CNN remove Tim Canova's name from a headline

Tim is of course running against Debbie in the Florida Democratic primary.

Also noteworthy that CNN complied.

Please rec if you're OK with the DNC violating their own impartiality rule.

Other threads suggest a lot of members are OK with this. Please rec if you think such rule can be violated if it's for a good cause, or provide other justification if you feel it's OK for other reasons.



Please make room under the bus for Robert Reich

He obviously wants Trump as President (sarcasm thingy here for those w/o the gene)

Robert Reich is furious with Debbie Wasserman Schultz after alleged email leak: ‘Fire her now’

The alleged leaks reveal emails from staffers questioning former Democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders’ faith, Wasserman Schultz contacting NBC political news director Chuck Todd questioning commentary on “Morning Joe” and calling Republican nominee Donald Trump names.

Reich wrote on a Facebook post Saturday that the alleged emails “clearly show the DNC tried to sandbag Bernie’s campaign. As such, he believes “Hillary should fire Debbie Wasserman Schultz. Now. Don’t wait until next week to replace her.”

Reich continues, giving examples of alleged Clinton preference when the party should have remained impartial. “When the director of communications wanted to complain to CNN about a segment the network aired in which Bernie said he would oust the chairwoman if he were elected, Wasserman Schultz emails back, ‘he isn’t going to be president,'” he wrote.

“Other emails show officials of the DNC using ‘us’ language when referring to Hillary supporters and ‘them’ language in reference to Bernie’s,” Reich believes this is further evidence that the DNC was secretly working behind closed doors to help Clinton in the primary over Sanders.

It appears Republicans are looking for an alternative

Just before Trump took the stage to accept the nomination, the search engine said it saw a 1,150 per cent increase for the phrase while the Cleveland convention was taking place.

And a graph released by the company shows that searches only increased after Trump delivered his address – where he made a series of forceful promises in a 75-minute speech almost entirely lacking in policy details.



Sorry about the source.

Leaked email from DNC confirms paid trolls

From Jeremy Brinster of the DNC ...

Yes, Super PAC paying young voters to push back online on Sanders supporters

She’s forced to continue to appeal to young liberals as opposed to pivoting back to center





I'm sure none of them are here on DU, but be careful when reading/posting on other boards.

So our banks are over-regulated????

Doesn't seem to be true of one of our local banks, the customers of which were taken to the cleaners by the bank president ....

The OCC alleges that during that four-year period, Overby — a major Waupaca Bancorporation Inc. stockholder who influenced many decisions at First National Bank — tallied $1,620,514 in bank-paid personal expenses. That was in addition to legitimate business expenses, the OCC says.

Overby was paid a total of $3,573,000 in salary and bonuses between 2010 and 2014, the OCC says. From 2010 to 2013, Overby proposed and voted on his own pay as a member of the bank's executive compensation committee, the OCC states. His salary alone in 2013 and 2014 was $700,000 a year. Overbay also is accused by the OCC of causing false entries in the bank's books and records.

In 2013, Overby hired his son-in-law as controller of the bank, making him the third-highest paid employee of the bank and Overby's future successor, even though his son-in-law had never worked at a bank or credit union as an officer or director. When the son-in-law and Overby's daughter moved back to Texas in 2014, Overby had the bank buy their house. His daughter continued to work remotely for the bank from Texas, receiving an annual salary of about $80,000, which later was reduced to $60,000.

In addition to salary and bonuses, Overby received other benefits, such as: a 100 percent match to the bank's 401(k) retirement plan; use of a new bank-owned vehicle every three years (including a Cadillac Escalade costing more than $86,000); two cellphones, three iPads and plans for the devices costing about $500 a month from 2010 through 2013; and a Waupaca Country Club membership. Overby used his bank-issued credit card to pay for part of a 2012 safari in Tanzania and charged expenses for trips and lodging in places such as New York, Disney World and Grand Cayman.



Seems a little more regulation would have served the banks customers better than our current laws.

My favorite part is that despite this fraud, the feds are still not seeking jail time.

We're about to find out if hate or fear is the greater motivator

Republicans loathe Hillary with white-hot hate hotter than a billion suns.

Democrats fear Trump.


Which of these emotions will win out in November?
