I find Lawrence O'Donnell's prediction credible.

I think it could be Dan Coats. I never liked his politics but he I believe he has loves his country.

We are living in a world gone mad.

What kind of monster is Trump and what is wrong with the republican party. Is there some kind of plan in his madness. He has kidnapped over two thousand young children with not one ounce of accountability. He did this under cover of the law.

We are a very sick country and we need to start realizing this and putting a stop to him and his partners in crime before we reach the point of no return.

Another one bites the dust.

Another one of my favorite actors, Morgan Freeman is a serious harasser. He is/was one of my favorite movie stars. He always made the world seem safe in the roles he played. What is wrong with these people. What makes a kid grow up to feel so entitled that he (and probably much less often, she) think they have license to act this way. It is mind boggling.

Have any trusted Relief Organizations organized fundraising

for the people of Garza. I think they will really need all the help the world can offer.

You are missing my point.

He has always been able to refer to the democrats as "they" because while he has always caucused with them, he was not a party member. He ran as a democrat so that he would not play the same role as Nader and split the progressive vote. He did so because he put the progressive cause above his own need to identify as a socialist. The democrats never gave him credit for that.

I did so for my own different reasons. Having been born in a country where socialism was a respected term, I always agreed with its principles. I knew that voting independent or social democrat, was not a winning idea in this country, that always puzzled me, but I wanted to make my vote for a progressive cause count so I registered as a democrat after I became a citizen.

So, I do not vote as a democrat "because it suits me", I do so because it is more important that I vote for a progressive cause rather than be concerned about what label would I wear.

I always wonder if republicans in his situation

would ever plead so passionately for providing quality care for our homeless population.

While I wish Mr. Jeans no harm, I am not particularly moved by his message. A republican whose life was saved by the ACA and now is publicly pushing for its survival is not surprising. However, the majority of them do not care who lives or who dies when they are healthy, wealthy and usually very unwise. Their message is more like "I've got mine" and why should I pay the bill for others less worthy people.


If your strange dislike of Bernie could be put on hold for a moment,

have you even given a single thought about what the Bill sought to accomplish.

People with limited means would have been able to purchase drugs at a lower cost. You do not have to like Bernie to want a Bill that would allowed people a chance to obtain life saving drugs. It is hard to imagine how a true democrat that would not support the choice of achieving that goal over an opportunity of to air their dislike of the person promoting it.

I still love Bernie

and Hillary ran a good campaign. We have to stop fighting over this and unite in destroying the Trump presidency and republican control of the house and senate. These are our real problems.

Just sent of the following letter to the NYT about their criticism of Hillary.

I cannot believe that NYT would expect its reader's to pay for such "Yellow Journalism. Here is an older critique of this so called "writer's" work: http://www.cjr.org/behind_the_news/wrong_wrong_wrong_wrong_wrong.php. Is the Old Grey Lady losing her marbles.

This was posted to the following article: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/08/07/style/hillary-clinton-hand-on-heart-michelle-obama.html?login=email , on,their site, it has not been approved for publication yet.

Yes,

He may not have won the election but he can be thanked for the progressive party platform. It is an outstanding achievement and he deserves all our thanks.
