Clinton had to pay 1 million dollars to her supporters to counteract Bernie's millions of supporters

on social media who, with a real Future to Believe In, enthusiastically advocate for his populist policies for FREE!

The satisfaction that Bernie is in it to the convention

That may be true in the GE, but in the primaries those votes count toward delegate apportionment.

If there are enough provisional ballots to affect the apportionment of even one delegate, they should be counted. In additon, there are actual delegates running for election and are other races that these ballots may affect.

Also, there is a court case regarding some of those ballots. If the judge's final ruling is that the ballots of supressed voters be accepted, then they will be counted. I can't imagine that any provisional ballots will be thrown away simply due to the lawsuit and the possibility of a ruling being appealed.

Those who vote by provisional ballot are informed if their ballot was accepted.

I agree with everything you posted

but those nuances (please forgive me for condensing to one word), in light of the sheer danger that the current product poses to everyone in my regional area, must be dealt with separately (on a parallel track perhaps) in order to concentrate on the immediate life-threatening problems of high level nuclear waste.

If it means giving free acess to public documents, I don't care whose site it is.

I'm sick and tired of all these barriers to accessing public documents, whether it's Clinton hiding them on an email server, Romney destroying them as he leaves the governor's office, states charging thousands of dollars for access to statewide voter databases and, especially, not being able to freely view our public court documents without physically being in the jurisdiction of interest.

At this point, it's original use is not a factor in what to do about it now.

The fact to take away from this is that, even if a specific pile of nuclear waste originally wasn't part of a process designed to initially take lives, it always ends up being part of a process that puts people in danger of their life.

FWIW, live north of there near Spokane.

The odds worked in our favor that they lived in the same era and came to

public prominence at the same time, when the world needed them both.

I'm an Atheist, but the sybolism of a Jew and the Pope, at the Vatican, working to focus the eyes of the world on economic solutions to the plight of the poor, sick and elderly of the world, and to the plight of our poor, sick old world does not escape me.
