Last night's debate winner :The TPP by ommission

Not one word opposing this corporate coup d'etat of our American democracy and "NAFTA on Steroids." This is as powerful and crucial a Democratic coattail issue as protecting Soc Sec/Medicare and Net Neutrality.

On his Tour de Victime/Mendace Charles Koch just challenged Bernie to a debate!

There it was front page Yahoo interview today, Koch throwing down the gauntlet, calling Bernie and others "liars" who are "afraid" to debate the Koch ideology and machine. It's a flat out challenge and open invitation to draw the hermetically protected Koch into an actual debate with a genuine fact based liberal opponent.

Charles Koch will look like the self-promoting coward he is if he tries to weasel out of this debate into which he just slurred Bernie and liberals. Bernie should loudly and repeatedly announce that he accepts Koch's challenge and demand this debate.

I don't think this violates DNC rules on candidates debates. But if it does, then have another excellent liberal, coherent messenger like Liz Warren or Sherrod Brown follow through with this opportunity to get a Koch into an actual debate of ideas (instead of the typically lying junk Charles' tour is currently peddling through the MSM.)

A Freedom Rider Might Win in San Diego!

Fingers crossed, it's looking good for Bob Filner for Mayor in San Diego

I was overcome with emotion today voting for Bob Filner for mayor. We went to the same university though at different ends of the sixties. "Our" Freedom Riders were legendary. Their selfless courage risking their lives to fight against segregation in Mississippi brought us who followed them both inspiration and hope to demonstrate and combat an unjust war and, at Cornell, educational discrimination.

I never imagined that fifty years later and nearly three thousand miles away, I would be given this huge honor to be able to vote for Bob Filner. Or that, ironically, the background noise and visuals today would be of voters standing for hours to exercise
their still embattled constitutional rights.

It's too early to know if Filner will win for Mayor...we won't know for a few hours. Worth pulling an "all nighter" like the good old days in Risley. But whether Filner wins or loses, I got to vote today for a person I've admired my entire adult life. Who would have thought?

Thank you Bob Filner for fighting the good fight your whole life. If you win as mayor, the truly democratic and inclusive soul of our city will soar.
