Neither snow, nor wind, nor more snow can stop the Bernin' Love in Waupaca

We'd been planning our Waupaca, Wisconsin Bernie Rally and March for a couple months already, so despite the snow that fell today our small community was Feeling the Bern!

That's right, despite the blizzard conditions, despite the fact that Bernie was not even scheduled to appear, we had over 250 people turn out and show their support for Bernie.

While some volunteers worked on getting the Rec Center gym set up ....

... others stood out in the snow and beckoned their fellow citizens to join them in Feelin' the Bern.

Bernie was here, but only in spirit ..

We had food, music and speaker, and of course, marchers!

Our project organizaer, Dmitri Martin, Candidate for Wisconsin Assembly, AD40.

I've got a good feeling about Tuesday!!!

Does anyone still doubt that the integrity of our elections has been compromised?

"The Measles of Mankind"—10 Stand Out Quotes on Nationalism


"The Measles of Mankind"—10 Stand Out Quotes on Nationalism

Today's political discourse is afflicted with virulent strains of fear-mongering and isolationism. As an antidote, here are 10 quotes on nationalism from some of history's strong progressive voices.

1. "Nationalism is an infantile disease. It is the measles of mankind."
—Albert Einstein (1879-1955)

4. "Imagine there's no countries. It isn't hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for."
—John Lennon (1940-1980)

5. "The world is my country, all mankind are my brethren and to do good is my religion."
—Thomas Paine (1737-1809)

7. "So we draw lines around our property, our counties, our cities, our states, our countries. And, boy, do we act as if those lines are important. I mean, we go to war. We will kill and die to protect those boundaries. Nature couldn't give two hoots about our national boundaries."
—David Suzuki (1936-)

Trump: "There has to be some form of punishment for women who have abortions, like maybe we replace her with a hotter woman from Slovenia."

My religion forbids contraception, so I should not have to pay my employees since they MIGHT use those wages to purchase birth control.

Trump: "Yes, Corey Lewandowski assaulted a reporter, but it's her fault for being a journalist instead of a beauty pageant contestant."

BREAKING: Gov. Nathan Deal decides that hosting Super Bowls is more important to Georgia than religious bigotry, thus covering the spread.


Bernie Sanders & Al Franken are coming to Wisconsin

Democratic Party Founders Day Gala 2016
Saturday, April 2nd | 6:00 PM
Wisconsin Center | 400 W Wisconsin Ave, Milwaukee, WI 53203

Tickets are $50

Just in time to bump up the numbers for our April 5th primary!!

Russ Feingold currently leads RoJo, but RoJo has three PACs. Can you spare a dime for Russ?

Russ is as good as it gets, and we need him back in the Senate. Please help if you can.

ActBlue for Russ

from my email ...

This race is really close.

The latest Marquette poll results are in, and they confirm what we've always known: This is going to be a tough, close race, and grassroots supporters like you are going to make the difference for our campaign.

Russ may still be ahead, but right now -- more than ever -- we can't let up. Senator Johnson now has three super PACs and special interests supporting him. We have you, and we can't do this without you.

The stakes are too high. We need your help.

I don't have to tell you why Senator Johnson is wrong for Wisconsin. He's a reliable vote for the special interests. He refuses to do his job and consider President Obama's Supreme Court nominee. His big money backers are going all in to protect him, and we need you to help us fight back.

Tomorr‌ow is the next FEC deadline and we're still short of our $100,000 goal. Will you step up today and make a donation before the deadline?

Donate $25 or more before our deadline tomorrow.

Thank you for keeping us moving forward.

Tom Russell
Campaign Manager

Debbie's Record

Here's what I could find ...

Lost the House, the Senate and over 900 state seats while Chair of the DNC
Supported Republicans over Democrats in two Florida districts
Conceded entire districts to the Louis Gohmerts and Joni Ernsts of this world by abandoning the 50-state strategy
Supported a Republican retread for the Florida Democratic Party Gubernatorial candidate (he lost to Rick Scott, again)
Undermined President Obama's treaty with Iran
Shilled for the private prison industry
Shilled for the booze industry
Shilled for the payday loan industry
Blamed the voters for her failures

There must be more. Some here insist she's a progressive. President Obama says so himself!

What progressive legislation has she introduced or otherwise supported?

What progressive candidates has she backed?

What other progressive actions has she taken that I've missed?

Lack of enthusiasm for Bernie in Wisconsin

Yeah, the line is only four blocks long an hour before the doors open...

Bernie will be in Appleton today. Just got the pic from Crystal Dancer, who is waiting in line with three friends. Interesting that all these 60 year old (and older), white women aren't supporting Hillary.
