Sanders seems like an open minded dude, one who can handle the harshest of criticism.

I cant imagine him wanting even his harshest critics silenced or censored. Anyone disagred. I will hapilly work and vote for him if he wins the primary.

Two girls murdered in Texas taxi: Were they honor killings?

By Stella Dawson

WASHINGTON (Thomson Reuters Foundation) - The last words from Sarah were “Oh my God, I’m dying.” Then the 911 emergency operator heard a barrage of gunshots. Sarah, 17, and her sister Amina, 18, were found shot 11 times in the back of their father’s taxi, abandoned in a hotel parking lot.

Their father Yaser Said has not been found since that New Year’s Day seven years ago when he told his daughters to climb into his cab, he was taking them out to dinner.

The chilling emergency call opens the documentary "The Price of Honor", which recounts the lives of two vivacious American teenagers growing up in the Dallas suburb of Irving, Texas, and their attempts to escape the grip of an Egyptian father who planned Muslim marriages.

of white people racism and black people's hair

Teach school in a small southern town where everyone knows everyone's business and I know a lot more people's than most due to my job. Well so there was this white girl from this really racist family who got herself pregnant with a black guy. They had a very dark skinned, curly haired daughter. To make a long story short both parents have substance abuse issues issues and the white racist (hopefully much less so now) grandparents are now raising the little girl and learning how to groom her hair. The point of this story? Dunno other than maybe everyone should reproduce outside their race to help tjeir racist loved ones?

Anyway, slice of life around here.

thought exercise

Imagine any of the announced or probably going to anounce Democratic presidential candidates against any of the Repubs. Make some index cards with each of the candidates names on their own card. Throw them in a hat.Do the same thing with the Repubs in another hat.

You get the idea.

Maybe, just maybe, their least crazy/stupid guy (Bush disaster 3.0) could muster a win against Sanders by raising enough money to scare people with a bullshit scare campaign about 'socialism." But honestly I think Sanders would beat Bush.

Hillary Clinton's Strong Start

The entry into the Democratic contest by Bernie Sanders was welcome from a Clintonite perspective, because it filled a potentially dangerous vacuum. With his long record of service to progressive causes, Sanders is popular enough to garner a decent-sized following among liberal Democrats, but he’s almost certainly too far to the left to represent a serious threat to Hillary. So far, at least, his presence has been more of a problem for Martin O’Malley, the former governor of Maryland, who is set to officially announce his candidacy on Saturday. As I noted back in March, O’Malley is a serious figure who demands some respect. As governor, he eliminated the death penalty, legalized gay marriage, and championed various good-government initiatives. But with Sanders already out there on the stump, O’Malley has struggled to gain traction.

A new poll of likely Democratic voters conducted by Quinnipiac University illustrates the scale of the task that is facing Clinton’s challengers. The survey, which was carried out from May 19th to May 26th, showed her getting fifty-seven per cent of the vote. Sanders was in second place, with fifteen per cent. O’Malley got just one per cent, and so did two other possible candidates, Jim Webb, a former U.S. senator from Virginia, and Lincoln Chafee, a former governor and U.S. senator from Rhode Island. Of course, it is early in the process, and anything could happen between now and the end of the primaries. At this stage, though, Clinton is sitting pretty.

For Clinton’s campaign team in Brooklyn Heights, that means things are on track. Of course, they won’t necessarily stay that way. The campaign is just getting started, the country is more or less equally divided, and winning a third term of office isn’t easy for any party. Now it’s up to Clinton to finish up her “listening tour,” lay out her policy platform, and take it to the Republicans.
