I'm getting sick of Bernie trying to interrupt Hillary, waving his finger around

while she's talking, and otherwise trying to distract from what she's saying.

She calmly listens when he talks, but he grimaces, waves his fingers, shakes his head, and practically jumps out of his skin when she's talking.

Why doesn't he just wait for the moderator to say it's his turn?

So obnoxious.

ON EDIT: Can you imagine the reaction if ANY WOMAN used his body language on TV? Wagged her finger, angrily shook her head, pursed her lips, etc. She'd be accused of being on the edge of hysteria.

Why is Sanders opposed to President Obama's executive actions on undocumented immigrants?

People were making noise in my house when he was speaking and I couldn't hear what he was saying.

Do you believe in Santa Claus?

That magical white-haired old man who reads everyone's wish-lists and drops free presents down our chimneys every year?

The video of the Congressional Black Caucus members explaining the endorsement

of their political action committee for Hillary, with no votes for Bernie Sanders.

"Hillary Clinton has been there."

Are there any adult children of LGBT here, besides me? I don't remember

ever meeting one, but there must be some DUers with LGBT parents.

The Oregon refuge LIVE FEED on youtube just stopped, in the midst of angry shouting.

Here is what's up now, but it isn't live anymore. I had an error message and now this just keeps repeating.

LIVE FEED from the audio of the Oregon refuge "rebels" encampment.

The FBI has surrounded them. This could break at any moment. Or not.

ON EDIT: Does anyone know who the woman is who's negotiating with them and saying she's on her way there in a car?

Michelle Obama: Celebrate black history EVERY DAY.


WASHINGTON – First lady Michelle Obama said Monday the contributions of African-Americans to the United States are far too many and important to be celebrated for only a month, and instead should be studied and commemorated by the nation throughout the year.

“Let’s celebrate it for every single day of every single year – forever and ever,” Obama told spectators during a Black History Month program at the White House. “We have contributed so much to this nation and this planet.
“We have to make sure our young people understand where they come from and how valuable they are and how valuable that history is so that they know they have a solid foundation upon which to soar.”

Obama’s comments were made after 51 Washington students performed at a day-long dance workshop held in the White House in honor of Black History Month.
