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

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...

"...fewer are willing to believe that imperial feminism is the best we can do"

Dear Hillary, Madeleine and Gloria: Full Feminism Demands We Say No to America's Deadly Imperial Wars
Clinton does not have a monopoly on feminism.

Nonetheless, the statement rightfully provoked rebuke, including from some who grew up respecting Steinem. “The good news is that more and more of us are ready to change the whole system, and fewer and fewer are willing to believe that imperial feminism is the best we can do,” declared Philadelphia-based writer Sarah Grey.


Hillary: Paid speeches better protected than high level emails

Oh, Hillary. Thank you for being obtuse and not trusting of most people in this country. For protecting yourself in such a way it opens you to mortal wounds.

Maybe there is no "there" there, but your actions just make it like a carrot on a stick.

She is a fortress.

But what we really want is a community center. People coming and going, getting help, learning new things and a bulletin board with numbers on a sheet of paper offering a service to rip off and carry in your purse.

She is like that kid who has been up to something, and you cannot get a straight answer out of them unless you ask them in a specific way. They could have been doing nothing really or they could have been doing something really but they answer the same way.

This is a real flaw that many voters feel when they think of her. She doesn't trust us, so we don't trust her.

WA State is giving more to Bernie

Washington state isn’t just feeling the Bern. We’re on fire with it.

Consider: The Sanders campaign has gotten more donations from Washington state residents than all the other presidential candidates combined. That includes the one other Democrat (Hillary Clinton) plus all 10 Republicans still in the race.

We are talking number of donations, which may be an inkling to number of voters. Could WA state go for Bernie? I will be caucusing on March 26th.


Let's do this again...listen up WA State Caucus goers.

Become a PCO as the Seattle for Bernie Sanders group wrote:

The chaos that ensued at about 90 of the precinct caucuses in Iowa was due, in large part, to the absence of PCO's in those precincts. Attached is a list of AVAILABLE PCO positions in varying precincts around King County. THERE ARE MANY. Scroll the list and see if your precinct is PCO-less.

And here is for Pierce County.http://www.piercecountydems.org/precinct-committee-officers
