About Me

Thanks to the swarm. I hope your echo chamber is shocked when reality strikes.

Was on review but they let me back

I came to say that I caucused and am a delegate.

We turned one Hillary supporter which took our precinct from 2/2 to 3/1

It felt good.

I am going as far as Bernie will take us.

From the FB page of Seattle for Bernie

People in line at Key Arena!! Secret Service is going through EVERYTHING. Every pocket, every bag. The following items are NOT permitted: food, liquids, hard bottles, vape pens, selfie sticks, umbrellas, pepper spray, sharp items of any kind, guns, ecigs, marijuana... If you are in line and have ANY of these you can A) Get rid of them or B) Have them toss the items when you pass through security.
You will help the process run more smoothly and much faster if you do not have bags or purses. And backpacks measuring 14x14 or larger are not permitted.
There are no exceptions. Zero. Zilch. Nada. Zip.
** Update: Also, take off all metal before going through the metal detector. Let's help them do their job more efficiently to get us inside sooner.

I couldn't make it down today, but remember the good time I had back in August.

Received a piece of mail today from a William J Clinton

Whose address
1631 15th Ave W ste 302 Seattle WA 98119
It included a surrogate form to send in to caucus in case I couldn't make it...oh I am volunteering actually.

This guy loves me because I have " an impeccable record of voting" and he asked for my support of Hillary.

Fucking hell.

Tells me how to use the surrogate form or how to caucus in person.

Then says any registered voter can caucus for Hilary.

Here's what I know about Hillary: she's the single biggest change-maker I've ever met in my life. And we need a change-maker. I 've never met someone more level-headed, with more tenacity, and more determination to make America Better.
She can't do any of that without you, though. Your enthusiasm, dedication, and support are what make change possible. Thank you so much for everything you do for our party and our country. I hope that I can count on you to vote for Hillary.

Oh, this may well be the last time WA state can count on my impeccable voting record for their gain.

Anyone else in WA get this?

Ohh look what I got in my mail from a h supporter

bullshit comments like that? I grew up in a jewish clique in the 60's in NYC. i communicate with 13 jewish friends at least twice week. One of my friends has around 10 emmys for sesame street another is a famous children's author and a 3rd is aa professional musician who is on Springsteen's albums and toured with the Stones, Clapton and Graham Parker.

i'm a Hilary supporter and have way more Jewish friends than you and yet you make a blanket insult. It is one of the main reasons why I detest almost all the Bernie supporters.

I have no idea what this stilt person is on about. Since I haven't posted anything about Jews.

Alerted on and posting this so the person who posted this can look at my comments again and go ...oops

Petitition about Bill and MA

This is a call for the immediate arrest of President Bill Clinton for clear, knowing and egregious violation of the campaign laws to swing an election in a significant way.

It could not be any clearer in the Massachusetts General Laws. "Campaigning within 150 feet of a polling station, or in any way interfering with the right to vote". Choosing the critical battleground state of Massachusetts, Bill Clinton should immediately be subject to arrest and prosecution. Bill Clinton was not only electioneering within the boundary. Although the spokesperson for “I never had sexual relations with that woman” Bill Clinton denies that he was ever inside a polling place, photos and video show him clearly greeting and talking up election workers inside.

After being told to refrain from this activity, for Clinton indeed must have known the law and chose to violate it. Bill Clinton does not vote in Massachusetts, and would have no other business in a polling station on election day besides campaigning for his wife.

Yeah, why was he in a state that he cannot legally vote in and in a polling station?

Hey fellow PoC and those who love us

And those who love Steel Workers, too.

I have an OP about Bernie meeting with Native Americans and Steel Workers in Hibbing, MN. I would love for people to see how he is going to the source to ask what he needs to know.


Bernie in Hibbing MN meeting with Native Americans and Steel Workers


My grandfather was Ojibwa or Chippewa as they are also known. I lived in Minnesota when I was younger.

I want to thank my brother for sending this to me in an email

Prior to his event this morning at Hibbing High School, Bernie Sanders held back-to-back meetings in the school library with two groups: Native Americans from the Chippewa tribe and members of United Steelworkers locals.

Sanders entered the school library at 9:21 a.m. accompanied by his wife, Jane, and carrying a cup of coffee and some folded papers.

“Good morning. My wife, Jane,” he said as he greeted the group of about a dozen people seated around a conference table and began shaking hands.

“We don’t have a lot of time, so let’s get to work,” Sanders said, asking the participants to share issues impacting the Native American community. “What’s good, what’s not so good?”

He was told there were participants from five different nations present, including elected council members. (A list provided by the campaign is below.)

In response to a concern about federal funding flowing to tribes, Sanders said: “Sequestration is a very stupid way to do budgeting.”

A representative of the Chippewa Tribal Council relayed that poverty is a big issue.

Sanders ticked off several of his proposals to fight poverty: a $1 trillion federal jobs program aimed at rebuilding the country’s infrastructure, a $15 minimum wage, pay equity for women and free tuition at public colleges and universities.

Sanders was asked about the quality of healthcare and was told the Indian Health Service provides worse funding than what federal prisoners receive. He said in the grand scheme of things it would not have a major impact on the federal budget to provide better funding.

Sanders asked about drug and alcohol abuse: “Is this something that kids are gravitating toward?”

He was told of too-frequent overdoses from heroin, meth and painkillers.

The discussion next moved to youth suicide. Other topics include the quality of education, access to broadband and the impact of climate change on growing wild rice.

The Root has some suggestions for the Scotus


Kamala Harris; Janice Rogers Brown; Leah Ward Sears

I say "Hell Yeah!"

May my Latina mind come here to rest ?

The whole crazy old Latino Poll thread from the h supporter was a marvel to begin with and it was funny to watch the mistake defended for lots of reasons but mainly admitting an error is not something they like to do.

But this just took the cake. I will just post it here because it has become an old thread and I cannot let this slide by.

Not so bad as all that. Public opinion is always

in flux, but it seems reasonable to assume that these months Sanders spent mostly talking to liberal whitey-white IA and NH voters will not have changed national Latino attitudes all that much. Less "Quien?," more interest in the possibility of another option, though.


Ohio BLM Activist MarShawn McCarrel II Commits Suicide Outside Statehouse

MarShawn M. McCarrel II: "My demons won today. I'm sorry."

I am in shock and disbelief.

He is selfless and will give his last in order to make sure others don't go without,” read a nomination page for the Hometown Champions Award. "MarShawn has come so far in life and has inspired so many people to help others."

On Friday, McCarrel attended the NAACP Image Awards with his mother, according to the Daily News.

My heart goes out to him and all who loved him.

I don't know what to make of this...
