About Me

A child of the 60\\\'s, a lifelong Democrat and a sense that our elected officials , especially the President, set the tone of civility in our great country. I worked on JFK\\\'s campaign and on Barack Obama\\\'s (twice). High School Class of 1963 I was moved by MLK\\\'s march on Washington, and to see that go full circle and have Mr. Obama for President is quite gratifying. When I see remnants of the John Birch society still quite active in the Tea Party it strengthens my beliefs and support of the Democratic Party.

Facebook co-founder drops unprecedented cash to stop Trump Read more: http://www.politico.com/story

If the first $20 million yielded cheers, the second $15 million generated stunned silence.
Facebook co-founder Dustin Moskovitz vaulted suddenly and without any advance warning to the top rung of Democratic party mega donors with two unheralded tears through his checkbook in the last six weeks. His money significantly altered the short-term financial position of the pro-Hillary Clinton forces and revealed a previously unknown source of cash for Democrats.

see 3rd par. re TRUMP My post about HRC in July of 2013

I received over 500 replies to this ---and some severe criticism---

The Why--Hillary in 2016

The team that she will assemble in 2016 is just about unbeatable. First of all, heading it up is her husband Bill who really showed how likable and powerful he was at the 2012 Democratic Convention. There was no headliner at the Republican convention that came close to him. The Clinton's are seasoned politicians and know exactly how to run a campaign. There was a lot of talk about surrogates in the last election, how each of them hit an integral segment of the voting populace and the assembly for 2016 is awesome. Barack and Michele Obama owe the Clinton's a lot. They, and their entire team, will be on hand to support them. They have made great inroads to the Latino vote and most immigrants, not to mention their GOTV efforts in the black community. They alone are an extremely powerful entity that will be backing the Clinton's.

The women vote coming from the entire country will be overwhelmingly for Hillary. In this election Republican women will vote for Hillary more than they have ever voted for a Democratic candidate. First of all, it is an empowering act to make sure that a woman is finally elected President in this country. Second of all the Republican “war on women” is very real to Republican women and the extreme right scares them. Any reader here knows what I am talking about. And Hillary is white, Republican women found it hard to vote for a black man, but Hillary doesn’t have that in her profile.

Her posture as a world figure trumps all of the other candidates that the Republicans can muster. She has made a lot of friends around the world that are long and strong.

Finally, she is smarter than all of them put together. I am such a supporter of her that I don’t want to talk about her ruthless side----she will win this one!

When we look at the horrible mess and message that is coming from the Republican side we need a landslide vote for her, and Congress. With the current Republican House and filibustering Senate we need to get our country back on a good track.

North Carolina I-95 NO $$$---my support of the NBA and the NCAA

There are 182 miles of I-95 in North Carolina. I drive through there many times per year and have stopped spending money there. I will not buy gas, eat there or spend the night. As a person seeking equality for all it's the least I can do to support the opponents of HB2. Here's the math and the money tax on rooms along I-95 is 9%----Fuel 20 gallons at 2 = 40 x 2 ---both ways ---$80 ---lodging $75 x 2 ---$150-----meals 30 x 2 ---60. It all adds up and if the sports world is doing their part, then I must do mine. Don't worry about bathroom breaks, there are rest areas every 50 miles.

If The GOP Ever Wants To Win Again, They Need To Be Ready To Purge People Like This From The Party

From Red State , of all places--This is a solid right wing site that demonizes all Democrats. Now to hear them roast TRump on a daily basis is so ironic.


Treason against Trump. These are words this person actually uttered non-ironically. And he isn't the only one who thinks this way. And if people like him are allowed to hang around in positions of prominence and authority, the immediate death of the party is more or less totally assured.

‘I Alone Can Fix It’

Source: The Atlantic

Has any American political leader claimed so directly to embody the nation, to speak for it, to be its sole hope for redemption?

In 1968, Richard Nixon spoke of a nation torn apart by crime at home, and by wars abroad. But, he promised, better days were ahead. “Without God's help and your help, we will surely fail; but with God's help and your help, we shall surely succeed.”

No mention of God in his acceptance speech, but heck, if you think you're God you don't need to.

Trey Gowdy is somewhat of a Clinton obsessed freak. That’s a quality, of course, that the GOP would absolutely require of the person they’ve chosen to lead years of witch hunts with the objective of keeping her from getting elected.

It’s important to watch this video to the end, where Comey puts Gowdy, the Entire GOP and Bernie or Bust millennials in their place with the truth:
