I just can't stop being blood red angry about this.

The guy that made that highly-edited video should be hauled in as an accomplice. The MSM media needs to be called out for never even questioning the authenticity as well as their shilling for right wing crazies and featuring them as "experts."

I remember when I was in college, I didn't make much money (was putting myself through back when you could still do that) and going to PP to get my birth control pills, pap smears, pelvic exams and breast exams. They were on a sliding scale and it was something that I could actually afford. If they hadn't been there I could have never afforded those services otherwise. The VAST MAJORITY of what PP does has nothing to do with abortions but even if it was ALL they did, abortion is a legal medical procedure. Don't like it? Don't get one. And these anti-choice MEN. MEN have NO RIGHT EVER to determine if a woman is going to carry a pregnancy full term or not. NONE! And don't ever think you do!

I also remember a time in this country when abortions were illegal. Do these vile anti-abortion pieces of offal think that just because it's illegal women won't get abortions? No. The rich and upper-middle class fly to other countries that allow abortions. Middle class women always knew doctors who would perform a D & C and the poor women were reduced to various devices and concoctions, risking their lives to end an unwanted pregnancy.

I can't tell you how I truly hate these anti-choice people. I hate the churches they go to, the media that they listen to and the politicians who control but appease them.

So, are the same people who proclaimed "All Lives Matter"

the same ones who are denying Syrian refugees access to their states? It didn't take long to prove that the whole "All Lives Matter" really meant "White, Male, Heterosexual, Protestant Lives Matter." But we knew that.

Bernie Sanders is . . . "On The Cover of The Rolling Stone"

UPDATE: Links for tonight's debate for those without a tv service.

See below for several ways to watch if you don't have a TV and/or TV service.

So, about this meme that you have to have bazillions of dollars

to compete in today's political environment. If that was the case, Jeb would be winning by a landslide, Meg Whitman would have been California's Governor and Carly Fiorina would have been one of it's Senators.

Keep fighting, Bernie supporters, it's been done before and we can do it again.

Question for Iowans

I have a question for you Iowans;

Yesterday, we had a Phone Banking for Bernie Event at my house and we were calling Iowans. Probably about 75% to 80% of the calls went unanswered (or answering machines). Would you say that is because people are looking at their caller ID and, not recognizing the number (or being an out-of-state number) people are just not picking up? I know you guys must get inundated with calls for all the candidates and I'm sure the closer to the caucusing it gets the worse it gets but, in your opinion, is phone banking to Iowa voters effective or is it considered more along the lines of a PITA?

Thanks in advance!


Confessions from a Hillary Shill

Good afternoon. As of today, I am officially a former "digital media specialist" (a nice way to say "paid Internet troll" previously employed by Hillary Clinton's campaign (through a PR firm). I'm posting here today as a confession of sorts because I can no longer continue to participate in something that has become morally-indigestible for me.


The real problem for me started around the end of September and the beginning of October, when there was a change of direction from the team leader again. Apparently, the higher-ups in the firm caught wind of an impending spending splurge by the Clinton campaign that month and wanted to put up an impressive display. We received very specific instructions about how and what to post, and I was aghast at what I saw. It was a complete change in tone and approach, and it was extremely nasty in character. We changed from advocates to hatchet men, and it left a very bad taste in my mouth.

Just to give you an idea, here are some of the guidelines for our posting in October:

1) Sexism. This was the biggest one we were supposed to push. We had to smear Bernie as misogynistic and out-of-touch with modern sensibilities. He was to be characterized as "an old white male relic that believed women enjoyed being gang raped". Anyone who tried to object to this characterization would be repeatedly slammed as sexist until they went away or people lost interest.



The rest of the list will sound eerily familiar.
