Middle class

Okay 250K a year wins. You know who in the federal government is not middle class? The President and the Chief Justice of the US Supreme Court. Middle class? Every Senator and Congressman. The Speaker of the House. Associate Justices of the Supreme Court. The Vice President of the United States.

All them people is just like me and my little old social security check. Thank the fuckin' Gentle Jesus that me'n my homies will never pay a nickle more in taxes cuz "Freedom!"....

Supporting the idea that 250K is middle class is bullshit.

I think I'm in Bizzarro DU

Bernie is being endorsed by a super delegate and Hillary by a black entertainer!


"I am your Grandmother!". Bwaahhhaha......

Hispanic outreach the Hillary way....may this farce be with her.

Electoral projection Clinton vs generic Repub and Bernie vs Repub


Hint:Hillary doesn't compare well...

Prediction:The date of the Jan. 17th debate will be changed

Reason: I read a post yesterday that stated the DNC had 3 weeks to answer the Sanders campaign lawsuit. That makes the return date Jan. 12th-the Monday before the debate. I'm thinking a week sooner or several weeks later will sound better to DWS...

Edit Monday the 11th is the correct date

Why would Sanders supporters believe Hillary is playing dirty?

"Blumenthal was obsessed with the "whitey tape," and so were the Clintons, who not only believed that it existed but felt that there was a chance it might emerge in time to save Hillary. "They've got a tape, they've got a tape," she told her aides excitedly."

"Clinton's staff was surprised; Ayers hadn't been part of her prep. But Hillary had a number of friends—among them Sid Blumenthal, whose nickname was "Grassy Knoll"—regularly feeding her on the sly negative tidbits of dubious veracity about Obama. (In getting ready for that night, Hillary casually mentioned to her aides that she'd heard that Obama's mother was a communist.)"

It was the old Bill-Hillary-Sidney gang who handed over the weapons of defamation to the Republicans in the closing stages of the last campaign, and it was they who were not-so-secretly upset when the candidate of their own party actually won.


Friday night's agreement doesn't end the lawsuit, according to a Sanders aide.

That made my day!


No-both sides aren't equally guilty

The Clinton campaign and DWS delberately colluded to deny a fair primary to the American people. While I find the remarks fron Clinton and her spokespeople contemptible they are paragons of virtue compared to DWS whose supposed entire job is to see all campaigns are treated fairly. DWS must be fired while there is still a chance for the remnants of the party. As to Clinton, I believe the voters have their own rebuke in mind for her.

It occurs to me that all of us owe the admins a big "Thank You"

No matter where you stand on the ongoing controversy of the day you should note NO SLOWDOWN or reduction of features that traffic this heavy would have caused last week. So thank you skinner, elad, and Earl G...your server upgrade did the trick!

Do you know what real Americans do when a socialist achieves power?

They re-elect them 11 times...Jasper McLevy Mayor of Bridgeport Ct 1933-1957

In the early 1930s, Bridgeport, an industrial city in southern Connecticut, was plagued by corruption and hard hit by the Great Depression. In 1931, voters had ousted the incumbent Republican mayor for Democrat Edward Buckingham and McLevy only lost by a couple thousand votes. By 1933, dissatisfaction had spread to both parties and McLevy trounced the competition, bringing along a Socialist majority on the Board of Aldermen, Bridgeport's city council. While people familiar with local politics had seen the writing on the wall in the 1931 results, the national media was astonished to find the Socialists in control in a New England city.[1][2][

Contrary to the fears of some,[who?] capital did not flee Bridgeport and McLevy began upon a reform agenda rather than a revolution.[citation needed] In a time of reduced revenue due to the Depression and, with city coffers depleted by corruption, McLevy managed to meet the City's obligations and balance the books, even reducing taxes. He withheld the lucrative contract for trash hauling, instituting municipal trash collection, saving the city hundreds of thousands of dollars. He took over Pleasure Beach where concessionaires had been reneging on taxes and rent for years. He began the process of putting all city purchases out for competitive bidding. In one instance when asphalt suppliers all supplied identical bids, he threatened to create a municipal asphalt supplier and broke their cartel. He championed transparency, opening all board and commission meetings to the press and the public ("Operation Goldfish Bowl". He sold the expensive limousine his predecessor had used. He instituted a merit system in the police and fire departments. McLevy went on to be reelected eleven times
