About Me

I am the same DU member who formerly posted under the name FlyingSquirrel (no space). I killed this profile by changing both my password and email at a time when I felt I had developed an unhealthy addiction to the internet in general and DU in particular. Not sayin' I'm any better now ;-)

Hillary's endorsements mean exactly zero to me.

They are nothing more than a further show of how corrupt every institution in this country is becoming.

She could nab every major endorsement that is out there to be given, and it would only harden my resolve to vote for Bernie.

There are people on this board who will say that this proves I (and every other Bernie supporter) am blind, manic, or outright insane; so be it. I'll be voting for Bernie and they can all stuff their endorsements.

Bernie Sanders or Bill Clinton?

Imagine, for a moment, that the 22nd Amendment was repealed a few years ago; that Hillary Clinton is not running for president right now, but Bill Clinton is.

Who would you be supporting?

Copurrrnicus: Behind the curtain

"Sanders doesn't seem to care if he loses..."

When you hear progressives laud Sanders’ “authenticity,” it goes deeper than his political record. The judgment takes aesthetics into account—with his guileless manner, and the way his face defaults into a dogged, curmudgeonly glare, you get the sense that it would never occur to him to tell anything but the truth. Just like it would never occur to him to change his positions on wealth inequality over three decades, or to accept money from super PACs, or to shy away from the word “socialist.”

It boils down to one critical factor—unlike every other candidate, in either party, Sanders doesn’t seem to care if he loses. While the rest of the field prioritizes victory, he’ll stay loyal to his favorite theme, even at the cost of defeat.


And that's why I support him more strongly than I have ever supported any other candidate.

'At the end of the day'

Is a phrase I have grown to hate since being roped into watching "Big Brother" by my fiance... I make gulping sounds whenever I hear it (since I no longer drink, it's the closest I can come to making it into a drinking game).

The reason I mention this in the GDP forum:

“You can wave your arms and give a speech but at the end of the day are you connecting with and really hearing what people are either saying to you or wishing that you would say to them?” Mrs. Clinton told MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell on Friday, without directly naming Mr. Sanders.

At the end of the day, I’m sorry that this has been confusing to people and raised a lot of questions,” Clinton said during an exclusive interview Friday on MSNBC’s Andrea Mitchell Reports. She also admitted that setting up a private server “wasn’t the best choice.”

She needs to stop!
