Ron Reagan rips Trump: "An absurdity, a travesty" (VIDEO)



"This is a man who knows NOTHING about the world, and CANNOT be President of the United States. That amounts to a national emergency."

Remember Bush's debate meltdown in 2004?



I think that's going to look tame compared to the meltdown the Orange Con Man is going to have when he debates Hillary.

He's already losing it. Look at his tweet storm after Hillary's speech. Just wait until she is standing feet from him getting under his skin.

"The man from Hope and the man of hope"

Signature image size limits

Is there any rule in place to limit the file sizes of images used in signature lines? I've noticed that some signatures have gifs that are extremely large -- as in upwards of 40MB. This can slow down the page load significantly.

I realize that since these images are not uploaded to DU servers, it would be harder to enforce a hard limit as is done with avatars. One solution, I know, is to turn off signature lines completely, but I enjoy seeing people's signatures and would hate to have to turn everyone's off just to block the few that are causing an issue.

What's the best course action? Do alerts for signature line issues go directly to the admins? If so, perhaps I could alert on the ones I'm noticing and let you decide.

Obama makes Stonewall Inn first national monument of LGBT movement

Source: NY Daily News

President Obama has declared the Stonewall Inn a national monument, making the iconic West Village bar the first national monument of the LGBT rights movement.

"Stonewall will be our first national monument to tell the story for the struggle for LGBT rights," Obama announced in a video released Friday.

The President honored the Stonewall patrons who fought back against a police raid on June 28, 1969, igniting the national gay rights movement 47 years ago.

"They stood up and spoke out. The riots became protests. The protests became a movement. The movement ultimately became an integral part of America," he said.

Supreme Court Tie Dooms Obama Immigration Policy

Source: NBC

The U.S. Supreme Court split 4-4 Thursday over a challenge to President Obama's immigration policy, a result that prevents the administration from putting the program into effect during the rest of him term.

Announced in late 2014, it would shield more than four million people from deportation. But lower courts blocked its implementation after Texas and 25 other states sued, claiming the president had no power to order the changes.

The death of Antonin Scalia left the Supreme Court evenly divided on the issue. Thursday's tie vote means the justices were unable to announce a ruling, an outcome that leaves in place the lower court rulings against enforcing the plan.

Under the proposal, adults here illegally could remain if they meet certain residency requirements and have children who are U.S. citizens or lawful permanent residents. It would also expand another program, now in effect, that allows young people to stay in the country if they were brought here under age 16.

Louis C.K. Explains Why Hillary Clinton Is The Most Qualified Candidate

Louis C.K. Explains Why Hillary Clinton Is The Most Qualified Candidate In One Simple Analogy

For those baffled by the turbulent political climate the nation is experiencing, Louis C.K. explained the candidates and their qualifications with one simple analogy.

“It’s like if you were on a plane and you wanted to choose a pilot,” the “Louie” star said. “You have one person, Hillary, who says, ‘Here’s my license. Here’s all the thousands of flights that I’ve flown. Here’s planes I’ve flown in really difficult situations. I’ve had some good flights and some bad flights, but I’ve been flying for a very long time, and I know exactly how this plane works.’”

The comedian continued, saying, “Then you’ve got Bernie, who says, ‘Everyone should get a ride right to their house with this plane.’ ‘Well, how are you going to do that?’ ‘I just think we should. It’s only fair that everyone gets to use the plane equally.’ And then Trump says, ‘I’m going to fly so well. You’re not going to believe how good I’m going to fly this plane, and by the way, Hillary never flew a plane in her life.’ ‘She did, and we have pictures.’ ‘No, she never did it.’ It’s insane.”

Sanders Superdelegates Want to Wrap Up the Revolution Peacefuly

Sanders Superdelegates Want to Wrap Up the Revolution Peacefuly

The superdelegates who are supporting Sanders, however, seem to have little appetite for the convention protests and walkouts that some Sanders supporters have threatened. For these superdelegates, the overwhelming preference is for party unity in the interest of defeating Donald Trump.

"I don't see any dramatic walkouts or protests or egg throwing or anything like that," says Lupita Maurer, a superdelegate and Democratic National Committee member from Oregon. "I truly believe that by the time the convention comes around, we're all going to be a happy family again."

According to the Associated Press, Clinton has the support of 571 of the 714 superdelegates, while 48 support Sanders and 95 are publicly uncommitted. Mother Jones spoke with half a dozen superdelegates backing Sanders. They all expressed loyalty to their candidate and weren't ready to call on him to drop out. Several said they would wait for Sanders make the call on what to do next, following Tuesday's results. "All of us are really waiting for some direction from Sen. Sanders," says Nancy Jacobson, a superdelegate from Florida.

But they had little desire for protests or acrimony that could tear the party apart. The goal, they agreed, is to defeat Trump.
