I've had more than enough of the Look at me!!!! OPs. Edited

I've had enough of the I'm doing fine, my economy has recovered, if yours hasn't it's not my problem.
I've had enough of the posters who can't stand another DUer but won't ignore that DUer and attack them over and over in their threads and alert on them instead of being an adult and ignoring that poster.
I've had enough of the lectures at how horrible we are if we express disappointment in politicians and being told that we are haters.
I've had enough of people who think we are stupid enough to think that any single politician or elected official can effect sweeping changes alone. No one here thinks that, it's a fantasy in a few posters minds.
I've had enough of a majority of Democratic voters treated as the enemy because we don't see things the same way as others.
I've had enough of Democrats who disagree with democrats being accused of attacking other Democrats.
I've had enough of people telling people that they don't recognize progressive actions when they occur, even when said actions are in no way progressive and in fact are actually a shit sandwich.
I've had enough of Democrats acting like republicans and being told I should STFU and swallow my anger and get the fuck out there and vote.
I've had more than enough of people who can't look into a mirror and see that they do the same as the one's they are complaining about only in reverse.
I've had enough of being sold out by politicians who seek to pad their own parachute while cutting the cords on ours.
I've had enough of people who say some of us want to kill capitalism, no one here is that stupid, the banks, wall street and corporations who pay no taxes, that's an entirely different matter.
I've had enough of people who like to pretend they are the only people who are smart enough to actually know how things work.
I've had enough of people who hate DU and DUers but won't stay the fuck away from either.
I've had enough of people telling me I have to vote for what doesn't work, if it worked we wouldn't be in tghe shape we are today.

I've had enough and I grow weary of fucking passive aggressive lectures

25 bucks for Bernie is 25 bucks for Bernie!

This OP got Bernie 100 bucks in donations. 25 from Manny and three other posters have told me they will be donating 25 bucks each to Bernie. This OP is a copycat and violates the SOP for GD

45 times Secretary Clinton pushed the trade bill she now opposes

http://www.cnn.com/2015/06/15/politics/45-times-secretary-clinton-pushed-the-trade-bill-she-now-opposes/

Washington (CNN)Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, as a candidate for the Democratic presidential nomination, seems reluctant to take a firm position on an issue dividing her party: whether President Obama should have fast-track trading authority for the immense trade deal he has been negotiating, the Trans-Pacific Partnership. With some progressive voters eyeing her with some skepticism, and facing a challenge (such as it is) from candidates on her left, she is being advised to tack in that direction.

President Obama has been pushing hard for the deal, while Democrats in the House of Representatives on Friday revolted and voted against a key part of the legislation. One told me, "there was a very strong concern about the lost jobs and growing income inequality," adding, pointedly: "Ms. Clinton should take notice."

She clearly did. After first dodging the issue, on Sunday in Iowa, Clinton said that "the President should listen to and work with his allies in Congress, starting with (House Minority Leader) Nancy Pelosi, who have expressed their concerns about the impact that a weak agreement would have on our workers, to make sure we get the best, strongest deal possible. And if we don't get it, there should be no deal."



Let's turn lemons into lemonade

Candidate Bernie Sanders on Gun control.

Sanders Votes for Background Checks, Assault Weapons Ban
Wednesday, April 17, 2013
WASHINGTON, April 17 – Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) today voted for expanded background checks on gun buyers and for a ban on assault weapons but the Senate rejected those central planks of legislation inspired by the shootings of 20 first-grade students and six teachers in Newtown, Conn.

“Nobody believes that gun control by itself is going to end the horrors we have seen in Newtown, Conn., Aurora, Colo., Blacksburg, Va., Tucson, Ariz. and other American communities,” Sanders said. “There is a growing consensus, however, in Vermont and across America that we have got to do as much as we can to end the cold-blooded, mass murders of innocent people. I believe very strongly that we also have got to address the mental health crisis in our country and make certain that help is available for people who may be a danger to themselves and others,” Sanders added.

The amendment on expanded background checks needed 60 votes to pass but only 54 senators voted for it. “To my mind it makes common sense to keep these weapons out of the hands of people with criminal records or mental health histories,” Sanders said.

Under current federal law, background checks are not performed for tens of thousands of sales – up to 40 percent of all gun transfers – at gun shows or over the Internet. The amendment would have required background checks for all gun sales in commercial settings regardless of whether the seller is a licensed dealer. The compromise proposal would have exempted sales between “family, friends, and neighbors.”

In a separate roll call, the Senate rejected a proposal to ban assault weapons and high-capacity magazines. That proposal was defeated by a vote of 60 to 40.

Which host of the Bernie forum laughed along at the c*nt tongue twister ?
