One way Bernie has it ALL OVER Hillary!

Music. Bernie knows.


Just this afternoon, Sanders recognized Fishman for his great work, remarking that Phish is "one of the great bands in this country."

Petition drive to recall Michigan Governor Rick Snyder starts tomorrow

If you live in Michigan and wish to help recall Governor Rick Snyder, go to FireRickSnyder.org and sign up to volunteer.

Tomorrow at 1pm local time in Lansing, The Committee to Recall Rick Snyder (FireRickSnyder.org) is officially launching a petition drive to recall Michigan's new Republican Governor. In order to put the recall on the November ballot, they need to submit 807,000 valid signatures before August 5.

The process for recall elections in Michigan is different from other states. If the recall is successfully placed on the November ballot, voters will choose between recalling or not recalling Rick Snyder. If the voters side with recall, then "a special election is conducted on the next regular election date to fill the office vacancy." This would most likely mean the 2012 Michigan primary.

The petition effort is undeniably a longshot, as it lacks any official support—and thus any significant resources—from either the Michigan Democratic Party or local labor unions. Compared to the well-heeled efforts we have seen in Wisconsin and Ohio, the Committee to Recall Rick Snyder is an all-volunteer organization with barely enough money to print petitions.

Trump releases Healthcare plan

Some details ( really I am not making this up) https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions/healthcare-reform

The thing is, he is right on a bunch of things here, (And wrong on so many more) but what he rails at are the things the HC lobby and the Republicans insisted on in the ACA.

In CA I saw my first Hillary bumper sticker today.

At my doctors office. A rainbow one. I've seen lots of Bernie stickers, and two Ben Carson ones and no other Republicans.(But a good number of Palin's left over from the last go round).

So that tells ya the groundswell is about to begin. Or not. I'll keep you all posted. I wasn't sure if I should tear it off or guard it with my life. I am so conflicted.

Trump rallies: Only a matter of time until someone gets killed

On Monday, 30 black students attending a Donald Trump rally at Valdosta State University in rural Georgia were forcefully ejected — simply for being black.

On Tuesday, in Louisville, Kentucky, what happened to young black protestors at another Trump rally wasn’t just racist — it appears to be outright criminal.

While we have already widely reported that white supremacists are openly proclaiming that they are fully emboldened and energized by Trump, the natural progression of their romance with Trump is now on full display.

Trump supporters? Trump heads? Trumpians? Trumpiacs? What should we call them?

Yes dumb shits seems like a good one but it's not specific enough.

Have you ever gone to Trump's website?

It is like a bunch of bumper stickers!

Nothing longer than a couple of sentences. https://www.donaldjtrump.com/positions
What a narcissist. A dumb one at that.
