Activist Peter Staley Slams Bernie Sanders For Misleading Statement About Meeting On HIV/AIDS

http://www.joemygod.com/2016/05/26/activist-peter-staley-slams-bernie-sanders-for-misleading-statement-about-meeting-on-hivaids/

From the Facebook page of noted HIV/AIDS activist Peter Staley:

“Feeling used and abused by the Sanders campaign right now. They just issued a press release making it sound like our meeting was about his endorsement of AHF’s drug pricing ballot initiative in CA. Senator Sanders never brought the issue up during our meeting. WE brought it up near the end, only to tell him that we had been flooded with messages from all the leading AIDS organizations in CA with deep concerns about AHF’s initiative — they are worried it could actually negatively impact access to AIDS drugs.

“Those groups have tried to reach the campaign with these concerns but had hit a brick wall. We asked Sanders to designate someone in his campaign to talk with these groups, and he agreed to this. WE DID NOT ENDORSE AHF’S INITIATIVE. His campaign should not have issued a press release implying this was a major topic of discussion at the meeting, and that there was general agreement on the Senator’s position on this. Anything but.”

State Department Report On Email Vindicates Clinton Rather Than Nails Her

The report released Wednesday by the State Department Inspector General on its email records management is being reported as heavy-duty criticism of former Secretary Hillary Clinton. However, the report has more in it that vindicates Clinton than nails her.

Here I thought I didn't have a life! LOL

Bernie has no coattails

the one WV gubernatorial candidate who had endorsed Bernie came in 3rd out of 3

the guy isn't some fringe candidate; he's served as the president of the state senate and has been minority leader the past two sessions

the guy who won the nomination can be considered a DINO, a term I hate to use

I wonder if the 40% of Bernie voters who said that they'd vote for Trump in the fall gave the winner their votes for governor

I want to start a fund for the safety of bridges while their "protectors" are busy posting on here


Opinion: Bernie Sanders, the contest is over

pretty concise

Sen. Sanders cannot win this primary, and there will be no revolution. He must accept that. If he cares about the poor and underprivileged, he should use his new-found bully pulpit to gather support for down-ticket Democrats so that we can have true change. His one-man band revolution is going nowhere and only serves to keep right-wing Republicans in power in Washington. Senator, the contest is over. It is time to stand down.

Bernie is hiring campaign workers in Cali

why not just reassign some of the 300 he fired

A friend of mine in Pittsburgh posted this today

it should be required reading for everyone

And so it begins; people are so predictable. The local radio call-in shows are already being deluged by people who are complaining about how difficult and confusing it is to vote in the Pennsylvania primary today:

1. Review a sample ballot before you go to vote. You can find them online, in newspapers, etc.

2. The electronic-screen voting machines are rather basic. Push the button beside the person/issue you want to vote for - do the same for each screen - then push the “VOTE” button. If you have a problem, poll workers will gladly help you.

3. There is NO subterfuge at work here. The ballot is not purposefully confusing to favor any one candidate.

4. One woman on the radio was indignant because she was purposefully “locked out” of her polling place. The election official at that polling pace heard the call and called into the show to point out that the woman went to the wrong door - a back door that was locked. She apparently did not find it strange that she was probably by herself, in an alley, with no crowd of campaign workers around - as there always are. DO NOT be this person.

5. Be patient and be kind when you vote.

6. In Pennsylvania, we do not need ID to vote, but it would probably be a good idea to have it along with you.

7. If your candidate does not prevail today, accept defeat gracefully. Don’t get on Facebook later tonight with that “We wuz ROBBED!” argument. It’s usually just ridiculous and unfounded - regardless of what Chucky’s website says.
