No, it was the message:

Ah, but he endorsed HRC and now he's a corporatist crook again according to a DU diatribe yesterday.

People forget the real goal. Booker is for the people and not just any candidate. Wait, he did speak at the 2012 DNC for PBO. That's unpopular. Yet he's on course. He made a strong populist speech:



Mayor Cory Booker Lays out Party Platform at the DNC

I was hoping he'd run in 2016. He is presidential material, IMO. DU search shows hostile comments. I want Van Jones as POTUS, so don't listen to me...

Love the banner on the 'newspaper':

The Portland Intelligencer

The most scientifically-proven news.™

Where have I seen that trademark before?

Ready For Someone Else.™

Don't diss the entities from the Eightth Dimension. They are here and the entire world is their smorgasbord. You cannot escape them:

Republicans serve The Beast. From the dawn of mankind they are the regressive element that's been holding back and destroying our civilization. They nourish other-dimensional entities that feed on misery, pain, and chaos. Republicans are their minions, and hope to share in these entities' power, or be spared the pain. But The Beast never shares; The Beast never spares.

From a DU2 sigline.

Thanks, CR, needs to be posted in the paper or on Thom Hartmann's show.

A rumor, likely be true, is that bravenak was the one who inspired this:



Because of your work in radio, you may get him to go over your list and the words of bravenak.

I cannot get these words by bravenak out of my head and heart, thinking as a woman and mother. I always knew this, but her words are so powerful:

252. Maybe delete and apologize for your 'race nagging' comment. We are dying and in jail.

It is not nagging. We are fighting for our lives and our childrens lives. How is that nagging? It is a demand to be treated fairly and equally and to be seen. Look at me. Notice my race. It affect me everyday. Why not just join our call and not feel nagged, but instead feel called to action?


Black Lives Matter:

This is a CALL TO ACTION TO PROGRESSIVES!!! SOS!!!! SOS!!!

MAYDAY MAYDAY, WE'RE SCARED TO LEAVE OUR HOMES AND THE COPS CAN JUST COME IN AND KILL US, HELP HELP HELP!!

OUR HUSBANDS ARE IN JAIL AND OUR KIDS ARE POOR, WE'RE SCARED!!


To that you say: Race naggers!!! I think that was a terribly unfeeling and mean response. It saddens me.

I cannot hold back the tears every time I read this heart rending plea to those who should be on her side.

Tomorrow Morning the US Flag Will Be Raised In Havana *BOG Post*



Raising the Flag at U.S. Embassy Havana

U.S. Department of State

Published on Aug 12, 2015

A New Chapter for the United States and Cuba

On January 4, 1961, U.S. Marines Jim Tracy, F.W. "Mike" East, and Larry C. Morris assigned to U.S. Embassy Havana lowered the American flag outside the embassy for the last time. For 54 years, the soldiers’ warm affection for the Cuban people never wavered. And neither did their belief that, one day, they would reunite to raise the flag again.

On August 14, 2015, these three U.S. Marines reunite and join Secretary of State John Kerry to re-open the U.S. Embassy in Havana, Cuba. Watch this video as they reflect on the past and look towards the future.

President Barack Obama and SoS John Kerry are changing lives and history one day at a time. Thanks, Obama!

When I hear the word 'rude' or 'disuptive' applied, I want to say that's a false equivalency.

The 'disruption' to the families of the slain means more a political rally. And murder is beyond 'rude.'

Critics of BLM sound like Nixon's 'law and order' campaign. And yes, that shows my age, but it's too close, IMO.
