Can I just say

how good it is to find there is a Berne Group? I need to bone up on All Things Bernie before next year as I plan on doing a LOT of canvassing and fundraisers and house parties. Goddess help me I may actually have to become a Democrat again but only in order to use the local Democratic Party headquarters as a base of operations. They won't know what hit 'em. LOL!

You're not the only one that is coming back to the party because of Bernie.

Welcome to the group. Glad to have you

Just an FYI in case you missed it, at Cali's request, we're staying off of pro Hillary posts today. Just to give them the ability to celebrate without having to deal with defending the indefensible. Like no questions during an "interview," no position on the various trade agreements, the war mongering, etc. She's having her kick off party so we're going to be good

Glad to have you. Getting the word out about how Bernie has walked the walk for decades is the most important thing we can do!

Do the Bernie bounce!

I have been knee deep in work lately and haven't been paying attention but Hillary is kicking off her campaign? I thought she kicked it off a couple of months ago. And no answering questions during an "interview?" And people are defending this.

Oh, and Bernie Bounce!

That piece of information was what the post was about that skp was banned on. http://www.democraticunderground.com/10026775414

Yes, two years of "will she run" nail biting suspense, months after the video announcement and months of a listening tour, she is finally kicking off her campaign!

I have no problem just addressing the issues or leaving positive Hillary posts alone today. I'm not usually this snarky. Well, yeah, not usually. I just find all the hype and all the money, ridiculous.

I am truly hoping she says something concrete today. Something outside of equal rights for women, LGBT, people of color; something outside of immigration reform. You know, something outside of what every single person with any sense and compassion wants. It shouldn't be a big deal that a Democrat is for marriage equality or doesn't want cops shooting black men, etc

Bernie is the real thing. He has never sold out and never will.

to caucus for Obama. Then he tries to slam through TPP. Pfffftttt ...

But I will keep the registration if Bernie stays in and I will caucus again as well (important in this state).

Don't let the supporters of other candidates bait you into doing something rash. Each primary season seems to get worse.

Well, when it comes to Bernie.

I'll be looking in here mostly as I don't want my day, spoiled by the happy gloating of their day.

Ok, one snarkage comment...did any one see the picture of "Bank of Hillary"? I will only say...not a surprise at all.
