"crazed belief that they actually represent more than people clicking away multiple times."

Beware of people telling you we all cheat.


Hillary = Landlines
Bernie = Internet

Bernie's going to win.

It's not your parents world anymore.

The GOP Want War. WWIII

They say they want to keep us safe but then they can't even hide the fact that they want war.

A GOP President will cause worldwide strife. We could literally wipe ourselves out with war and climate change denial. We can not let this happen.

Everyone needs to vote whether their favorite candidate wins the primary or not.

With that said... Hillary does not want war but she is fine with teetering on the brink. She is a hawk but she is way, way better than any Republican.

Our "War on Terrorism" is a self perpetuating disaster. We create terrorists by bombing homes and families faster than we kill them off. THe GOP seems to think we can bomb them all out of existence. We need to end the bloodshed not increase it.

The focus is on terrorism for almost every candidate except Bernie.

Bernie is focused on America and Americans. On improving our lives. Isn't that better than war?

Please vote for Bernie for our children's sake. But, if Hillary wins the primary, please do not stay home. Vote for Hillary.

America needs a reboot and we need to be better than we are today.

Big Food Aims to Kill Mandatory GMO Labels Before Year's End

Food makers want the Senate to pass a bill that would make labeling voluntary and supersede state-level laws.

There's no doubt about it: The food industry is counting on you to be distracted at this busy time of year, what with all those visions of sugarplums, etc., as it tries to make a stealth end run to quash any effort to require the labeling of foods that contain genetically modified ingredients.



GMO Labels: 90 Percent of Americans Want Them, but Washington Won’t Deliver

A staggering majority of Americans think genetically engineered foods should be clearly labeled. Why isn’t D.C. listening?

Even if you’ve grown cynical about the outsize influence of special interests in politics, the fight in Washington, D.C., over whether or not to require foods made with genetically modified ingredients to be labeled as such is enough to get your blood boiling.


One must ask, is this a democracy or not? Why can't we get labels if so many Americans want them?


IMHO: I tend to believe that GMO's are safe to eat. My big issue is the increased pesticide use and the constant resistant to pesticides GMO's create.

We're poisoning our land and wildlife at unprecedented rates. I believe that this is a big factor in...

Will Humans Survive the Sixth Great Extinction?

Species are disappearing at an alarming rate, a new study finds. Author Elizabeth Kolbert says that raises questions about our survival.

In the last half-billion years, life on Earth has been nearly wiped out five times—by such things as climate change, an intense ice age, volcanoes, and that space rock that smashed into the Gulf of Mexico 65 million years ago, obliterating the dinosaurs and a bunch of other species. These events are known as the Big Five mass extinctions, and all signs suggest we are now on the precipice of a sixth.

Except this time, we have no one but ourselves to blame. According to a study published last week in Science Advances, the current extinction rate could be more than 100 times higher than normal—and that’s only taking into account the kinds of animals we know the most about. Earth’s oceans and forests host an untold number of species, many of which will probably disappear before we even get to know them.


Our solution to the problem simply perpetuates the problem further requiring more of the solution.

Collateral Damage. We don't like to talk about it but it is what creates more terrorists. We kill people's parents, brothers, sisters and grandparents. They get mad at the US and become terrorist to fight the terrorists (USA).

It works as planned creating more war and more profit from war.

Take the profit out of war and it will end today.


War profiteering used to be considered immoral yet today it is who we have become.

"...U.S. foreign arms sales, which surged 36 percent to $46.6 billion in fiscal 2015 and look set to remain strong in coming years, a top Pentagon official said."

They'll remain strong since we are creating terrorists at a record rate. Collateral Damage is the key to success. Just keep killing children and families and we can ensure more profits for years to come.

Where have our morals gone?

Everything Bernie Sanders says comes down to one thing...


It's in your own self interest.

If America has a record turnout, Bernie will win by a landslide despite rigged counts, corruption and media bias.

Bernie is the people's candidate. If our Democracy is a Democracy, Bernie will win.

Neocon 101

Professor: What did we learn from Vietnam?

Student A: The draft brings it too close to home. It creates intense rebellion.

Professor: How did we overcome this?

Student A: We cut back on entitlements and increased college tuition. We made it nearly impossible for many young people to survive, let alone get ahead.

We made military service one of the only ways to get an education without incurring significant debt. Proudly, we built an all volunteer army.

Professor: And how do we sustain this?

Student A: Continual warfare. Collateral Damage on a grand scale insures more terrorists promoting our continual wars.

Professor: Right.

Student B: The goal is to rid the world of terrorists, one at a time.

Professor: Wrong. The goal is to maintain the level of MIC business. To sustain our military commerce at current levels or better.

Student B: Military commerce? What does commerce have to do with the military?

Professor:[/b ] Everything.


It's time for our country to change direction. We need to protest like this is the Vietnam War.

Our nation and our allies are about to start WWIII.

For the sake of our kids, Revolt!

Elizabeth, Bernie then Martin.

These are the three people I would vote for and feel like I was placing an historic vote.

It's been many years since I have seen such true Democrats. If we don't take this opportunity, we may not see this opportunity again. It may be too late.

I'll vote for Hillary if she wins the primary. However, it's a vote for a 3rd way Democrat.

Elizabeth is not running but for me, she was the first to spark the populist opportunity to turn America around. I love Elizabeth and her fire.

Bernie has my vote. This man built his campaign from grassroots donations. He is his own person. He speaks for the people that paid him (so does Hillary and every other politician but "people" is loosely defined).

Martin is very intriguing and I think he has points over each of the other two. I'm less familiar but still educating myself. Who knows, he might win me over.

We have two great Democrats that encompass the best of Democratic values.

I know this will not be a popular statement but, please don't vote for Hillary in the primary. Take the opportunity to bring real change to America. Vote for Bernie or Martin because we need to change before global warming forces change. We need to change before WWIII. We need change before corporations leave us all in the dust.

This is an unprecedented opportunity. Vote in your, and your children's, best interest.

An America of the people, by the people, for the people.

Guess Who Wins the Presidency According to School With 100% Prediction History

Western Illinois University, home of the Fighting Leathernecks, has been engaging with political prediction polls for decades. And since 1975, the school has managed to accurately predict the winner of every single Presidential election in a statistic that is likely to make even Nate Silver jealous.

So with the newest installment tallied and in the books, who does Western Illinois University believe will be taking the stage to declare victory the night of November 8th, 2016?

None other than President-Elect Bernie Sanders, with Vice Presidential candidate Martin O’Malley right by his side.

The students at the school have predicted that Sanders would defeat Hillary Clinton in 22 out of a possible 26 primary states.


Declare War!

...on the indiscriminate killing of millions of people by America's War on Terror.

I'm a Dove and, although we are nearly extinct, we still have a voice.

Does anyone remember when we used to say that "Sending doctors, teachers and engineers will turn enemies into allies faster than a bullet"?

How can you vote for Hillary and justify the killing of millions of innocent people in the name of war profits?

You can't. It's a sin.


Don't tell me Bernie supported... He's not perfect but much better.

And, my hope is that we can make "Peace" an important topic during this election.

I'd love to hear Hillary flip-flop on this. "Stop the killing" needs to be an American priority.

Here are our current American Priorities:
