Where do the Teamsters stand?

As I was backing out of a pet food store parking stall today, I was pleased to see a bumper sticker that read, "Teamsters for Bernie Sanders". I hadn't heard where the national party landed, endorsement-wise. But at least some local union members are Feelin' the Bern.

Be prepared for the next

Democratic debate. Hill will invoke the USS Cole attack to support her coziness with Wall Street. That and 61% of her donations come from women. Bill must be so proud of her.

By the time the primaries get here, she'll be using the Korean War as further support.

I've noticed that

most, if not all, of threads written by and for Hill's folks have a brief disclaimer or warning that adds (Hillary Group). They want the privilege of not being invaded by their Berners. That is not the surprising part. What is really surprising is that most of the posts have only one or two responses, usually by the same respondent. It appears to be more important that they troll the Bernie Sanders post in the Primary category.

I didn't conduct any scientific survey. It was only a notable observation.

Bern, baby, Bern!

It seems very odd and surprising that

the Hillary supporters are so intent on mischaracterizing Bernie Sanders' words and actions. Remember, these are the people who have the polls on their side and, at this time, the AA vote. It's like a higher ranking candidate hitting downward, which is considered by politicians to be a mistake.

Class and integrity are earned. They are no more an entitlement than what Hillary views the GE candidacy. But the arrogance and ignorance of some of her supporters denigrates what the presidency should be.

Hillary's votes and positions are further right than President Obama's. That is verifiable. Yet the Third Way, New Democrat mentality is to support Corporatists and further globalization. Letting Hillary slide into Bernie's positions on the issues does not, by any means, make them equals.

Bernie is and has been fighting for the same people that support Hillary. But Hillary, knowing she needed to get off centrist ground, moved left, JUST FOR THE POLLS SAKE. Yet her supporters seem incapable of connecting the dots. And they will be the ones who complain the loudest when she moves back to center-right. It is a very sad state of affairs for her defenders.

MSNBC is doing a Hillary Clinton

Infomercial, led by tweety himself. It is so blatant, it is sickening.
