How long before DU decides to turn on the ACLU...

Now that they're launching a 'Free Snowden' campaign?

Silent thread for those who do give a damn about who our next elected leaders will be

US Security firm slaughters dozens of bomb dogs after losing oil contract

On June 17th, a horrific image began circulating on Facebook: a slew of dead dogs, 24 in all, massacred on the grounds of a US security company in Kuwait.

Former employees of this company, Eastern Securities, as well as US dog vendors and the Kuwaiti government whistleblower who posted the photo, exclusively tell the Post of longstanding abuse of dogs in ES’s care — as well as the recruitment of impoverished workers from third-world nations who are then held against their will, without passports, work visas or cell phones.
...
“Those dogs were mistreated,” says Amy Swope, an American who worked for Eastern Securities in Kuwait from July to November of 2014. “A lot of them were underfed, had eye and skin infections, lesions, bacterial infections, diarrhea, and cancerous growths. One dog had uterine cancer so bad I begged them to euthanize her.”
...
In the week since the photo of the dead dogs went viral, Eastern Securities’ two phone numbers were disconnected, and the email shut down. When reached by the Post on Friday afternoon, Baisey’s project manager Tony Touchet hung up.

Baisey insists he has nothing to hide, and that his company has not gone dark.

Although 24 is the number being repeated by a lot of news sites, the total is allegedly almost twice that - Perhaps even more.

It's hilarious that Hillary supporters are accusing Sanders supporters of gaming the jury system...

And then to see a Hillary support outright admit that 'Yeah, I'm gaming the system'.



Staff have said that they are removing jurors that abuse the system like this. And Hillary supporters are complaining that the Jury system is becoming even more skewed to Sanders supporters as time goes on. (This is despite the fact that the sites support makeup is remaining mostly constant.)

Makes you go hmm...

Iowa police departments frustrated at Clinton Campaigns unpaid bills

MARSHALLTOWN, Iowa -- The Clinton campaign says as soon as they receive an invoice, they'll pay the Des Moines Police Department for the services they provided at the Katy Perry concert last October. City Hall provided us a copy of the invoice that has already been sent. The invoice is dated November 19, 2015. The bill is nearly $1,800.

The Marshalltown Police Department is dealing with the same problem. “We have requested reimbursement from the Clinton campaign. We haven`t received that payment yet,” said Marshalltown Police Chief Michael Tupper.

Former President Bill Clinton was in Marshalltown on January 15, and he requested and received security assistance from the police. The Marshalltown Police Department has not been paid for the services they provided that day.

...Donald Trump also held an event in Marshalltown on the same day as Hillary Clinton. The cost of those services provided by Marshalltown police was about $3,600. Tupper says Trump’s check arrived today. “In my 23 year career, the Trump campaign actually paying this large bill is the first time that`s happened to me in my career,” said Tupper. “I’ve been doing this job for 23 years and quite honestly the Trump campaign actually reimbursing for these kinds of expenses is the first time that’s ever happened to me in my entire career, with one exception.” Tupper says the one exception is Bernie Sanders, who also had an event in Marshalltown in January and made arrangements to pay up front.

Trumps campaign was willing to pay their bills to the local department. Sanders paid for everything upfront. So why hasn't Clintons campaign bothered paying their bills yet?

The most hilarious thing is the first paragraph - Her campaign tried smearing the Des Moines department saying that they never bothered sending a invoice for payment, so they never actually 'knew' what they owed. But, well... turns out the department had a copy of the invoice that was sent to her campaign last year, so... whoops?.

Remember back when...

Bernie was a 'far left' and 'fringe' candidate?

Times sure do change fast don't they?

Tweets from Michael Moore

Compliments to the HRC group - Specifically xocet - for coming across these.

And yes, thank you Bernie. Yesterday you became the first presidential candidate to demand the Governor's resignation.


FriendsinFlint- we FINALLY got the Dems 2 acknowledge the tragedy here. Finally. Thank u Bernie & Hillary. Now come here! Actions not words


Here's hoping that our candidates do take his advice and visit Flint.

And now, the one that the HRC group would rather you NOT see (Or rather, the tweet that HRC supporters would love to see thrown under a bus).

Hillary preying on people's fears about losing a health care fight to the Republicans instead of sounding like a leader willing to do battle


Many kudos to Michael Moore for standing for healthcare for all, despite some saying we shouldn't.

With the Yeehawdists forgetting snacks and socks..

I have to wonder if they remembered to bring enough toiletpaper for the "long haul"

Interview with Elizabeth Warren from 04 - Hillary Clinton and Credit laws



The first part of the video is nice - We hear about how Hillary, as First Lady, was responsiable for killing a bill that would have disproportionately affected women. Warren says that it was entirely due to Mrs. Clinton that the bill failed in 2000 - And rightly so. This is a excellent reflection on who she - as a person is - one that WILL stand up for the people of this nation.

Now, right after she begins to tell us of a more recent - Well, at the time of the interview - event. How Mrs. Clinton, as a Senator... flipflopped on supporting women and voted IN FAVOR of this bill.

The interview ends with some words of wisdom and caution - "This is the scary part about Democracy today, we're talking about the impact of money."

This is perhaps the main reason that we have to very careful about who we vote for this election - With how influential large donors are in this election, it's extremely hard to tell just what our candidates believe in, and who - if elected - they will support.

Sadly though, we don't have candidates this election cycle that are willing to forgo the corrupting influence of big money - Or do we?

Would it be possiable to hide usernames when in a jury?

This is something that I've been tossing around in my head the past times we've had people get banned and people complain that alert stalkers had it out for that member, and with the recent outcrys over 1SBM getting 5 I've decided that I might as well go ahead and post it.

A lot of people think that certain members get piled on by people that dislike them (And I've in the past seen people go as far as suggesting that some members have formed jury 'hit squads' to use against members they don't like), and I've been considering how we could prevent that when it popped out to me... Would it be possible to hide usernames (And sigs + avatars) when in a jury?
