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.

What will come of Democratic UNderground if Bernie does not win the nomination?

As a 70 year old life long Democrat I certainly have experienced division in the Democratic Party over the years. And I really enjoy looking at the latest on DU, but it looks increasingly like a Tea Party discussion when it comes to "my favorite candidate". What happens if HRC loses the nomination? Will her supporters leave this site because of the hurt feelings? That would all be a s shame and help the GOP along with it's agenda. I wish we could look at this as a war we should be fighting together and not a battle because in the long run if our infighting divides us we will set our country back to the right wing wackos who are loving our divisiveness.

John Poindexter and Chief Justice Scalia

Do you remember John Poindexter from the Iran Contra affair where Reagan sold all those weapons to Iran? He owns the ranch where Scalia passed away yesterday.

What was Iran-Contra all about?

Iran had been holding Americans hostage. President Reagan said we would not negotiate with terrorists. At the same time, the CIA wanted to support a rebel army in the overthrow of the Nicaraguan government. Congress said no.

Poindexter takes the Fifth

So John Poindexter, along with Oliver North and many others, went behind President Reagan's back (supposedly) and sold weapons to the Iranians (illegally), then took the money they made and funneled it to the brutal "Contra" army that they built in Central America (also illegally). See [1]

Maybe they are caught between a rock and a hard place , but it looks like Trump and his money have won the right to disparage Mexicans as he wishes . Settlement with Uivision, the largest Latino news source, has put journalists like Jorge Ramos is a very bad light. They are saying that it is ok for Trump's hooligans to throw Spanish speaking journalists out of their press conferences.
