This is beyond sad ...

I am so disillusioned with the Union County Democrats

Nick Scutari and his band of thugs firstly arm twisted local democratic committee members into voting for him. I faced intense pressure into voting for him in an open vote. TWO state senators called me up .. they sent muffins to my house and .. Dire consequences were conjured up for the next year's town council election if Colleen Mahr won the race...

And now they have followed it up the at the Congressional primaries.. while I like Malinowski's resume .. I am seeing some of the ugliest politicking in my life.. Linda Webber was scuttled by her own cities committee president ( Who has corruption charges up the wazoo)... every grassroots activist I know is disgusted and feels used.

If the corrupt thugs think they can co-opt the movement to their benefit - fuck them.

The fight for the party line in the primaries is making me sick

There is real grass roots enthusiasm - but the infighting between various primary candidates to be under the democratic party line.

What the Democratic should do is what any marketer or statistical expert will tell you in under one minute. If you truly want to determine the will of the people - Then you need to FUCKING randomize the ballot.

No more party line bullshit - Have the candidates have appear in random order so any candidate can appear on any position within a ballot. Lots of people will vote for the first person in the list of candidates.

I dont think the Democratic put its thumb on the scale by endorsing anyone.

Fairness is something Democrats can get behind. Let's start with our primaries

just my $0.02

who is the most annoying WH press secretary

They are all annoying - but who is the ABSOLUTE worst

Personally I thought no one could top Ari Fleischer -- But SHS is as thick skinned liar as they come.

I dont remember any of GHWB or Reagan's apologists..

Is the NRA a democratic body?

If so, are its by laws known to the public.

My point is, instead of fighting NRA externally, can we take the fight inside.

There are many many many gun owners that I know who are pissed off at NRA.

What will it take to mount an insurgency?

All these brands are owned by an ammunition company

It's sad. Bet many snow sport enthusiasts don't know this


Giro, Bell, Camelbak, Copilot and more are facing a consumer boycott because they are owned by Vista Outdoor, a supporter of the National Rifle Association.
In the wake of the Florida school shooting, US bike advocate Aaron Naparstek is calling for a boycott of Giro, Bell, Camelbak, CoPilot and other bike brands owned by Vista Outdoor, one of America's largest ammunition makers. This $3bn company is also a corporate supporter of the gun lobby’s mouthpiece, the National Rifle Association, he said.

"The same company that manufactures your CoPilot rear-rack child bicycle safety seat also produces the SavageArms MSR 15 Patrol assault rife," tweeted Naparstek last night.

My daughter's school district went into lockdown mode

It was a false alarm .. and even though I know now that my daughter's specific school wasnt affected - my heart is still racing



BERKELEY HEIGHTS, NJ - Gov. Livingston High School and Columbia Middle School went into shelter in place and lock down following a false report of a threat.

Superintendent of schools Judy Rattner confirmed that the threat involved a school district in New Mexico and the Berkeley Heights school district is safe. "The student that initiated the threat is currently in custody and all of our students are safe," said Rattner.

She reminded the parents, "please, in order to secure and provide safe schools for all of our students, if you see something or hear something of concern, please make sure to report it immediately so that we can continue to maintain the safety of our buildings."

Would it be fair to ask VISA and MASTERCARD to block NRA transactions?

No membership dues , NRA merchandise .. NADA ..zip.

If these two payment gateways block NRA related payments .. it will be a shot across the bow that will be heard everywhere

Not sure how it will work ..The payment gateways can only Identity banks and not individual accounts.

How do we go about this?

I really wonder if Trump would be able to get security clearance if he tried to get one.

It's not a constitutional requirement - But it should be part of the application process when one files for a run

Scum like him wont even get to the primary process.

Republicans have been thoroughly captured by donors that

They seem to act as if they have their balls squeezed in a vise grip, even as our children are being slaughtered like sheep.

Imagine what what would do for Banks and Fossil Fuels that doesn't provoke such visceral outrage.

If this were a real democracy with rational well informed voters - Republicans would have had ZERO seats anywhere in the country.
