Huge numbers blocked from the Hillary Clinton group

It's a statement that we've heard numerous times. Here are my thoughts on that subject.

A little perspective on that comment. First, Bernie supporters outnumber Hillary supporters here about 6 to 1. Secondly, Bernie supporters are more prone to shoot from the hip. It's not a problem. The problem is where they're aiming.Thirdly, I would venture a guess that if you took the number of supporters blocked from each group the disparity would be totally different given the percentages of supporters on each side. Last, but not least, I believe Hillary's supporters, for the most part, make a conscious effort to avoid Bernie's group. I have seen plenty of posts from Bernie supporters who come to the group with genuine respect, and that respect has been reciprocated. If one comes into the group like a wolf in sheep's clothing, it won't take long to get the deserved boot.

I'm posting this here just to see how many won't be able to help themselves.

After work today...

... I was relaxing on my front porch when lo and behold a bird landed on one of the railings. He just sat there and stared at me...............I was like Could this be a sign? Is my life going to take a turn for the better? Will I come into some kind of windfall? Will there be peace on Earth in my lifetime?.......,..........NAH!! Birds perch on my railing everyday.

Bernie's Black Knights

Monty Python and the Holy Grail

An uncanny parallel. Google has shut down direct linking of videos for me. If you're not familiar with the scene, please watch and comment.

Can you imagine- Part II

First, I would like to thank everyone who replied to my original "can you imagine" thread. What I would like to do here is a follow up to that thread. One of the arguments that we hear day after day is that people won't vote for Hillary Clinton because she's just another republican in disguise, and that electing her would be just a continuation of a republican administration. This is where I would like to direct your attention to another thread.


Reading the replies to the OP, I think I can safely say that most of them are from Bernie Sanders supporters. Given the above major excuse as to why some would not vote for Hillary Clinton should she be the nominee, and if there was any credence to the argument, wouldn't one think that the results of the test would align her more closely with Donald Trump or Ted Cruz than with Bernie Sanders? And so, here is my point. By taking that test they have exposed the hypocrisy of the claims about Hillary Clinton being "just like a Republican." I appreciate any thoughts on what I believe to be a legitimate observation. Thanks

Can you imagine...

... ever thinking to yourself: " if Hillary Clinton is not the Democratic nominee, I'm just going to give up and not lift a finger to keep Trump and the Republicans out of the White House"? I can't. Just a late night, before sleep thought.
