About Me

Let me get this out of the way first: I am a Canadian. Half Canadienne, Half Norwegian. I am a woman. I endeavor to keep my posts objective. My slant is definitely towards a democracy that works on a meritocracy that is based, ideally, on a starting point of a level playing ground and a fair kick at the can, no matter your passion, so long as it embodies fairness and justice to all the peoples of the earth, and of course, to mother earth herself. Thank you for helping me learn more through the dialogue here on DU.

What does Styer's $ mean for down-ticket Bernie friendly congress?

This is pretty big news! The largest bunch of money to date going to candidates the most enviro-friendly in 7 states?

Billionaire environmental activist Tom Steyer's super PAC launched a $25 million youth voter drive on Monday in seven political battleground states to help elect candidates that champion climate change policies in November's general election.

Steyer's NextGen Climate super PAC, a political group that raises funds to boost candidates with strong environmental platforms, said the campaign aims to boost turnout of millennials, who have become one of the largest potential voter groups.

In the lead-up to the November general election, NextGen will deploy hundreds of organizers across over 200 colleges to register young voters and facilitate on-campus voting.

"We are determined that they will be a difference maker," Steyer told reporters on a conference call.

I've been waiting for a Sanders a long time - here's a song for Berners from '75

And a little warning from the past for supporters of the Clinton dynasty

Don't you think we're gonna get burned
Don't you think we're gonna to get turned
We're gonna get burned
We're gonna get learned
Where going to get turned
Where going to get burned
Where going to get burned
Ooo learn
Turn
Burned
Ooo burned
Yea.....

Thinking down ticket -

assuming Hillary wins the nomination - her path to the GE will definitely have to deal with all the Sanders supporters voting downticket. And, if she wants a strong house, she'll have to support them (blue states where they can win where sanders was yuge) BUT

can they take her super pac money? the bundled money? Or will she keep her promises with all the super delegates that will also need VERY BIG $ support to counter act the disenfranchised Bernie supporters who may hold their nose for Hillary but still want their revolution?

And what about DWS? Should she resign? Should Obama replace her with Tulsi Gabbard before November?

This is all too fascinating.

This is very sad. follow the bouncy ball: President Trump

If anything is going to get out the repug vote - yikes. Haven't been scared before tonight.

Howard Dean: ['I'm getting all these messages and tweets'] It's not helpful

First off, they are NOT from Bernie, which he also said.
Second, why repeat this attack on MSM? Why drive the wedge further?

So ya, Howard, it is not helpful to the party that you continue to remark on 'attacks' towards you from Bernie supporters.

Who is getting personal here?

If Michelle Obama walks out of the WH with 141K of unaccountable goods could she run for President?

Like Hillary and Bill did. I seriously don't know why this isn't a bigger issue. They knew those items were registered as belonging to the Union.
If Michelle Obama returned them later would she nonetheless be called a thief?

Hell - wouldn't anyone be called a thief?
