MSNBC Was Just Discussing With Ben Ginsberg As To How To Steal The Repug Party's Nominee...

away from the will of the American People if the primary winner is Trump.

This is just disgusting. They win when they lose - even within their own Party.

Trump should just pull out of the Repug Party and run a 3rd Party candidacy.

They deserve it.

Did Hillary Release The Transcripts Yet?.....

Hey Hillary - I want to know that you're not telling me one thing and the Bankster's something else. Oh - and I hear you are going to have some fundraisers with the lobbyists for NRA and Goldman Sachs.

What are you going to give away this time?

I Ran Across Something Yesterday That Scared The Hell Out Of Me.....

I had to travel and I took a taxi to the airport. The driver was an American that lost his white collar job and because of his age mid-50's - he couldn't find another one. Being pressed against the wall - he took a job as a taxi driver to pay his bills and put food on the table for his family. Needless to say he was really bitter and most of his animosity was aimed toward Congress that is gridlocked and partisan. He felt that they could move things for the better - but because of politics - they became a joke in his eyes.

Well - he said he is going to vote for Trump. He felt that if Congress is a joke they might as well have a joker to deal with as President. He said this is not his sentiment alone - that he's got friends, relatives and colleagues that feel the same way. He says this accounts for the support that Trump is having all around the country.

Kind of scary - isn't it.

I was flabbergasted and he wouldn't listen to reason as to what is at stake in 2016.

Have Any Cable News Network Commented On The Marches Around The U.S. Today?....

There are Bernie Marches being held today all over the country. One would think this would be a big story. Has this been talked about and shown on any of the Cable News networks?

Looks Like The Operative Repug Phrase Today Is.....

'con artist'.

Last Night As I Listened To The Post Debate Commentary....

on MSNBC - the talking heads were critical of Romney for injecting himself into the fray and making an issue out of Trump's tax reports being made public.

Someone made the comment that maybe Romney might be the consensus candidate at a brokered Repug convention when someone else said - No - Romney was a loser and Parties don't put losers up again.

If that be the case - Hillary was a loser as well. Obama took her down in the race where she was again supposedly the 'presumptive nominee'. How is is that Hillary gets a second chance at the brass ring when she blew it the first time?

She had proven herself the last time out as being a loser. Why is the party taking a chance on her again?

There is too much as stake in 2016. Even more now with Scalia's passing. I'm worried that this will work against the Dem Party. I just don't get it.

James Corden Just In Really Bad Taste Made Fun Of Bernie Sanders.....

He took on Sanders in his show opening monologue. Now I might just be too sensitive being a Bernie supporter - but I don't think a British citizen and not an American citizen - has a right to take down any American candidate for president. He doesn't even have a vote here. It's one thing if it's light-hearted - but I believe Corden's monologue was really demeaning and brutal and crossed the line.

James I like watching your show. I believe you are really a talented individual. I just think you went too far in this evenings monologue and I think you owe - not only Bernie and apology - but you owe his supporters and apology as well. When you become a citizen - like Craig Ferguson did - then maybe you have the privilege to make fun and be critical of U.S. presidential candidates. If you want to make fun of political figures - there's plenty of fun to be made of your own British politicians.

I know people here will want to know what Corden said - but I was so upset that I don't think I can do it justice trying to repeat it. I'm hoping that maybe tonight's monologue will be posted on his website -and if so - I'll let you know so you can view it and judge for yourself.

Maybe someone else here caught it and can help me out.

One thing I have to say is at least Bernie is being talked about now that he's showed that he's a serious threat to Hillary.

Is There A Live Stream For Bernie Now In Ohio?.....

anywhere?

Some Dirty Tricks Are Being Played In Illinois With Sample Ballots Sent To Voters.....

I posted this in the Bernie Sanders Group and had the suggestion to cross post it here in the Illinois Group.

Please check out this link to a post from last night that called attention to a sample ballot mailed to voters in the 13th Ward of Chicago that didn't include Bernie's name or his delegates on it - only Hillary and her delegates.

As you scroll down the thread - you will see the actual sample ballot in question and comments from people reflecting on how these sample ballots are used by people on voting day. This will help you understand the sinister nature of this.

There is ample time between now and the voting in Illinois to get the word out and stop these dirty tricks now and not wait until after the voting is completed.

Please take the time to review this and comment on it. This needs to become an issue because it is another ploy to slow or stop the Bernie revolution.

This issue needs to get to the voters of Illinois and Chicago - but other states should take heed and watch for similar dirty tricks before voting occurs in your states.
