Photos of my new canine friend. Bernie supporter settling in til we vote in NC

Photo of what is on my kitchen table, and the reason why: Bernie related

Today I accepted two Bernie volunteers to stay in my hourse in NC til the vote on March 15. The HQ is just around the corner from me. One is a young woman who has PTSD (don't know why yet) and she is beautiful / very smart / six feet tall and has with her a Jack Russell terrier service dog that looks like the dog in the movie "The Artist". Best Dog Ever.

The other is a young man from Pittsburgh, who worked in Iowa, and graduated from my local University Wake Forest U. Also studied and traveled in Italy and South America, he and I have in common that we have both been to Machu Picchu. He will be running the Headquarters.

I got the button because I begged it off the woman. I hope she has more, they are home made.
I am excited because I am helping (will fix dinner every day) and don't have to work a phone bank which is a thought filled with terror.

Heck, I don't know why I'm telling all this, but the button is a real gift, and there are many ways to bring about the South to feel the Bern.

(by the way, I have a new City Councilman running for office. He called tonight and asked if he could put a sign in my yard and it was affirmative, I'm for him. I told him I'd place it next to my Bernie sign. He said "that would bring me honor".)

Yesterday Bernie HQ opened in my town. NC. We were snowed in, so I went there today.

Location: At the foot of the entrance to UNCSA=University of North Carolina School of the Arts -that's on one side. Entrance to a black re-vamped neighborhood to the other side.
I found a fledgling place, with some signs at the street. A place that looked just like anything looks when it just happened, a hole in the wall type location, and everything is start-up and new.
I bought some yardsigns, bumperstickers, offered my two guest rooms for out of town volunteers to crash in, and since i am a sign maker I offered to supply them with a stack of "I'm for the fringe candidate" bumperstickers (our own) so they can sell them.

What I really want to tell you though, is that the one volunteer in the afore mentioned, not yet bustling headquarters was a young Muslim woman.

Rubio Abruptly Departs G.O.P. Debate After Low-Battery Warning —Borowitz is watching

GREENVILLE, South Carolina (The Borowitz Report)—Senator Marco Rubio of Florida was forced to leave Saturday night’s crucial Republican Presidential debate after suffering what aides called a “low-battery warning.”

Rubio’s abrupt departure occurred immediately following his opening statement, which started in a spirited manner but concluded with the senator uttering the word “Obama” no fewer than a dozen times in succession.

With the other candidates and debate moderators looking on, Rubio’s eyes appeared to roll back in his head, which fell forward and came to rest on his podium.
As the unconscious Rubio stood motionless onstage, moderators momentarily panicked.

“We didn’t know what was going on,” the moderator, John Dickerson, said. “This is the sort of thing we’ve come to expect from Ben Carson, but not Rubio.”

Fiorina Cheers Self Up By Firing Campaign Staff - reveals Andy Borowitz

NEW HAMPSHIRE (The Borowitz Report)—After suffering a poor showing in the New Hampshire primary on Tuesday night, the former Hewlett-Packard C.E.O. Carly Fiorina cheered herself up by firing her entire campaign staff, fired staffers confirm.

Minutes after the returns started coming in, revealing that Fiorina had no chance of making a respectable showing, the former business executive acknowledged that she was “sad at first—but then I realized that every failure is an opportunity, and in this case I had an opportunity to give some people the axe.”

After delivering pink slips to her entire campaign staff, Fiorina said, “I started feeling better already.”
“That’s the one thing you have to understand about Carly Fiorina—she doesn’t stay down for long,” she said.

Fiorina said that she had “no regrets” about running for President, despite her dismal showing in New Hampshire. “I got to downsize a lot of people tonight, and that makes me a winner,” she said.
