So.....is it du or die for Hillary on Tuesday????

Or as the Hillie folk say....is it du or die for Bernie...

Ron Johnson continues to trail Russ Feingold amid heavy fundraising

by Bill Glauber

On a day when Republican incumbent U.S. Sen. Ron Johnson's campaign said it raised more than $2.1 million in the first three months of this year and had a path to victory in November, Democrat Russ Feingold went on the offensive over taxes.

Appearing in Milwaukee, Feingold accused Johnson of "taking a position in the past" of putting the mortgage interest deduction "on the table or on the chopping block, to trade away in order to get other tax cuts."

Tuesday's dueling storylines highlight the stepped-up activity in one of the more important Senate races in the 2016 election cycle. Campaign cash is a big part of the plot and for now Feingold is well ahead.

In a memo, Betsy Ankney, campaign manager for Johnson, said the senator's fundraising total of "over $2.1 million" in the first quarter puts him "within the top six biggest Senate fundraising hauls in the country." Overall, Johnson has raised $8.4 million.

Woohoo keep it going Russ supporters......

Another reason not to shop at Menards.......

Menards refuses to build store in Ohio while Obama is president!!

Menards, the home improvement giant found in violation of federal labor laws two weeks ago, has announced that it's not building an Ohio store as planned. The reason: President Barack Obama.

"We are a family owned business and with the Obama Administration scaring the dickens out of all family businesses in the U.S.A at present and with no certainty if the next administration will be any better, we have decided not to risk expansion until things are more settled," Menards spokesperson Jessie O'Mara told the New Philadelphia Times-Reporter in an email.

The Eau Claire-based chain's owner, John Menard, is intensely anti-union.

Seth Goldstein of the Office and Professional Employees International union Local 153 in New York filed eight complaints with the National Labor Relations Board against Menards last year, five of which were found to have merit. He sees a connection between the NLRB decision and the decision to postpone the New Philadelphia store.

"I don't think it's a coincidence that within days of the board finding merit on numerous violations that John Menard has now decided that he's not happy with the Obama administration," Goldstein said in an interview last Thursday.

Why now does my computer not show the whole page, only loads half or sometimes only a third

of the page. Huffington Post, USA Today, CNN, are just some of the sites that don't show the whole page......then when I try to move the scroll bar down, the spinning rainbow shows up and just keeps spinning.......just started doing this about 2 days ago. I don't know what to do. Help. Please. DU loads full just fine.

This statement might just sum up what we Dems are experiencing.......

Paul Wellstone's last statement: "There are forces within the Democratic Party who want us to sound like kinder, gentler Republicans.
I want a party that will STAND UP for Working Americans."
---Paul Wellstone.

Ok.....bets on the Masters winner.......I'm going fellow Irishman....Rory.

You??? Who do you think will win the Masters???

Crap, ron johnson's political advertisements are starting a month earlier then the last time he ran.

Ugh......it's April and saw my first advertisement for him. Six years ago I thought him starting in May was bad. Hope Russ has his strategy worked out to beat this clown.

Collectively, Americans will spend more on taxes in 2016 than they will on food, clothing, and

housing.

A tax advocacy group on Wednesday revealed that Americans spend more on taxes than their whole budget for food, clothing and housing.

The Tax Foundation, in its annual report on when the nation as a whole has earned enough to pay its taxes, announced the date as April 24.

"Tax Freedom Day gives us a vivid representation of how much federal, state, and local tax revenue is collected each year to pay for government goods and services," said Tax Foundation Analyst Scott Greenberg. "Arguments can be made that the tax bill is too high or too low, but in order to have an honest discussion, it's important for taxpayers to understand the cost of government. Tax Freedom Day helps people relate to that cost."

Is this true?? WOW if it is.

It is starting to get nasty on the Democratic side of the election....

and I don't like it. The candidates, the electric, us here on DU...... lotsa negative topics from each side. I know I'm NOT going to make it to November. So I'm saying now....will still love you all after one of them gets in the White House.

Where is that site where there are little Lego candidates showing how they win each

county in the State. Love it, and can't remember what site it is. Than you.
