Thom Hartman Just Had A Man Named Sam Smith On

his show talking about how DLC was started and who helped besides Al From. Apparently the Koch Brothers were there at the beginning. Sorry, I was in another room and only heard snippets so am wondering if someone here heard all of it.

Seems that it was in the beginning of Clinton's campaign when it all began. What I heard was that they now think they've completed their mission pretty much because they've succeeded in moving the Democratic Party so much to the RIGHT.

Would appreciate more information if anyone knows more. I have a function to attend and can't research right now. What I heard is the one member is ONE member of the DLC are the Koch Brothers and something about being members of the Executive Committee!

Gotta run, so sorry I just opened this up without more information. If nobody has more, I'll watch him again on my ROKU.

Thank you very much.

I'm Trying To Find Some Paintings Done By An African American That

I posted at about a month ago. I thought I saved it, but can't find it now. I can't find it in my posts either. I think one of them was of a card out of a deck of cards that showed a picture of Bernie on top and then a comment and showed Trump at the bottom. I think it was a Jack or King, but don't know the name of the artist.

Does anyone remember the pictures? I suppose I can Google paintings of Bernie, but if someone remembers what I'm talking about I would appreciate your help.

I'm Trying To Find Some Paintings Done By An African American That

was posted here at DU. I thought I saved them, I know I posted a comment but I guess it's no longer under my posts.

Anyway, the paintings were of Bernie Sanders, very colorful and BEAUTIFUL. I think one of them depicted a playing card that showed Bernie at the top and a comment with Trump at the bottom.

I was so impressed, so does anyone know how I can find them again? I don't know the name of the artist so I can't google it.

Thanks for any help.

OBAMACARE Co-Ops Closing - Sanders Clip On DEMOCRACY NOW Today...

Post this at General Discussion but getting NO interest over there. THIS is important, important, important IMO! Guess I didn't see this coming and DID NOT KNOW, that Congress has been continually cutting program all along. Companies going under due to lack of funding. They showed a clip of Bernie talking about "single payer" way back then.

I RARELY start a thread and I feel this is something that needs attention OR NOT. But does anyone here feel this needs attention? Is anyone here interested to raise this issue? If so, I'm asking if someone can is able to do a better job than me in making it known.

One other clip DOES shoe Trump talking about the SAME issue. MY BET? Looks BAD for OBAMACARE, and Big Pharma has been one of the main culprits behind the scene.

If there's no interest today... My guess? This issue is going to explode because REPUKES have NEVER STOPPED!

Watch Democracy Now Today If You Can, OBAMACARE Co-ops Closing...

Not sure how many here already did, BUT Amy Goodman discusses how Insurance Co-ops that enrolled people under Obamacare are being forced to close because they are running out of money AND Congress continually cut funding over time.

I'm sure we'll be hearing more, but once I fear once again OBAMACARE is going to be front and center!! Going to post over at Primaries as they show clip of Bernie and what he said way back then.

I'm feel THIS is going to get HUGE, BIG TIME coverage any day now!

I don' have much more information other than what Amy Goodman spoke about on her program.

See my tag line!

I MUST Give Hillary All The Credit In The World For What She's

had to go through, and while many will disagree with me, what I saw go on today has cemented my support for BERNIE SANDERS!

If Clinton becomes President I feel so very strongly that the grid lock WILL NEVER END! I've had it, they're crazy with hate and obstruction and it's ruining this country and dragging us down to hell!

I've just HAD IT! GO BERNIE!

Is The Audience Tonight Going To Be Inclusive

for ALL candidates or is there a selection process? Given all I've heard about DWS I'm just wondering how fair this will be.

I Live In Florida & To Vote In The Primary You Have To

designate party affiliation before you can vote. I know this, but don't feel I'm good at explaining WHY Independents, NPA or others need to register to vote and what it means if THEY DON'T do this and WHY their vote is needed to support their candidate.

For instance, as time goes by I'm finding A LOT OF PEOPLE, and I'm not just saying this, it's very, very true who aren't registered as Democrats but say they support Bernie.

Would someone here Start A Thread that explains why it matters for them to re-register? I do not feel I'm very good at explaining this and don't want to get it wrong. I would really appreciate it because it's becoming very clear to me that Bernie is really picking up momentum and he needs their vote in the state of Florida/

I'm going to start a thread later about what I've encountered here in my very RED county in Florida. I've supported Bernie for a very long time, before he even jumped into the race, but NEVER did I expect to see so many people coming on board. It's really amazing. But that's for later, just would appreciate it if someone could explain the Primary issue clearly so others who run into this issue in their states can make sure the importance of this.

I Just Heard Something Really Funny From A Caller Into

the Stephanie Miller Show. Someone here may have posted this, and some may not find it as funny as I did, but I still want to post it.

The caller was talking about a comment that Joey Scar made on his show this A.M. after the Pope's speech. I guess he said something about the Pope trying to connect him to how St. Ronnie was and how his views were close to the same as the Pope's. Didn't hear Joey Scar, never watch him but this is what the caller said when she called the show.

Listening to Scar's show she said, "I don't think they ever buried Ronnie Reagan, Joey Scar ate him!" Since the idiot has Ronnie Raygun on such a high pedestal he must have felt he STILL needed to promote his idol ABOVE the Pope! Even though I left the Catholic church many years ago, I was impressed by his speech to THIS no nothing, do nothing Congress.

Just wanted to share, I THOUGHT it was funny anyway but it once again reenforces the reason I no longer watch MSNBC!!!
