About Me

I joined DU following the election melt down that produced the second George the Lesser Term of Office. I am outraged by war, by out-sourcing of jobs, by Corporate control of both parties, and enheartened by my fellow citizens who are bravely part of "Occupy!"

And my candidate says a bit about what is happening:

Sanders Statement on Indiana Primary Win

“I want to thank the people of Indiana for the great upset victory that they gave us tonight. This is the 18th state that we have won, and we expect more victories in the weeks to come.

“The Clinton campaign thinks this campaign is over. They’re wrong. Maybe it’s over for the insiders and the party establishment, but the voters in Indiana had a different idea. The campaign wasn’t over for them. It isn’t over for the voters in West Virginia. It isn’t over for Democrats in Oregon, New Jersey and Kentucky. It isn’t over for voters in California and all the other states with contests still to come.

“We understand that we have an uphill climb to victory but we have been fighting uphill from the first day of this campaign. We are in this campaign to win and we’re going to fight until the last vote is cast. There is nothing I would like more than to take on and defeat Donald Trump, someone who must never become president of this country.

“The voters in the remaining contests deserve a chance to compare my record and Hillary Clinton’s record on creating jobs, raising the minimum wage, war and peace, the need for health care for all, breaking up big banks, combating climate change and other critical issues. To help voters make the best-informed choice possible, I hope that Secretary Clinton will agree to a date and place for a debate in California.”

Any Bernie Supporters in Nevada? 38 more signatures are needed:


Investigation needs to go forward.

Super-duperly duper efficient News Team in Indiana announces results of May 3rd Primary there!

How about it? These guys are really on the ball, aren't they?

Apparently there is no need to even wait til November, if we follow this news team, we will know by August who wins in November!


Oh, c'mon now! There are other

Questions as well.

Why is it that some of the truly liberal members of Congress have their panties in a knot over the
on going voter suppression and the "non-openness" of the Primary system in the USA?

Various tactics are being discussed to end these repressive means.


Representatives included the dean of the House and ranking member of the Judiciary Committee, John Conyers, and longtime civil rights champion Elijah Cummings. Others who made passionate and sometimes angry statements included Representatives G. K. Butterfield (co-chair of the Congressional Black Caucus), Sheila Jackson Lee, Terri Sewell, Maxine Waters, Marc Veasey, Alma Adams and Hank Johnson.

The briefing's sponsors, the National Election Defense Coalition and the Transformative Justice Coalition, support the urgent call for a new legislative agenda and political fusion movement to protect democracy, restore voting rights and ensure that every ballot cast is also counted in a secure, public, transparent process.

"There is a very insidious, treacherous and deceitful method of voter suppression, and it has to do with the integrity of the voting process itself."
Rep. Hank Johnson (D-Georgia) brought much needed attention to a crucial aspect of the election crisis: the aging, hackable voting technology used nationwide. Johnson cited the fact that the vote-counting software in these machines is still programmed by a cadre of private companies on proprietary software inaccessible to elections officials and the public.

"There is a very insidious, treacherous and deceitful method of voter suppression," stated Johnson, "and it has to do with the integrity of the voting process itself."

#### Furthermore, there is at least one class action lawsuit underway in an attempt to remedy the loss of voter rights that went on in NY state in that state's recent Primary.


Because of a class action lawsuit challenging the non-openness of the New York Primary, it
could be that the situation is deemed unconstitutional. As a Californian who is out there registering my progressive brothers and sisters to vote as a Democrats in The June California Priamry, and we have until May 11th to do so, I think it is a very good question as to why the NY declaration of party affiliation is set up to end so spectacularly early in the process.

My belief is that, regardless of the outcome of any lawsuits, the closed primary system has increasing come under scrutiny this season.


And, because of the class action lawsuit challenging the non-openness of the New York Primary, it could be that the situation is deemed unconstitutional.

And how do we stop this? Voters in both Pennsylvania and California are plagued

By Big Industry going ahead and fracking.

Former Governor Ed Rendell, a "D" supposedly to his core, agreed to sell out his constituents as the negatives around the fracking industry are as yet not totally proven.

And he now heads up an important division of a Texas Energy firm. So what if Pennsylvanians no longer can trust what is in their water supply? Rendell got his Quid Pro Quo.

Same in California. Oh, Governor Brown did issue a statement against fracking, but it was one of the more impotent statements to ever come out of his lips. His words went to the effect of "Well, just what could I do about it?"

Meanwhile the agencies in California that are connected with water supply have rammed rate increases up the rear ends of the citizens. Use a little too much water in summer months, and you could face exorbitant fines. Even if it turns out to be a rather innocent use of the water, such as a leak in your pipes that you didn't know about.

But somehow no one in Sacramento knows how to fine these Big Polluters and Big Water Wasters?

A group auditing the Chicago election audit group found this disturbing situation:

big vote switcheroo so Hillary gains 49 votes and meanwhile Bernie has 21 votes erased.


I just saw on my computer screen that I need to talk with a Microsoft technician immediately

There was a message inside a special dialogue box that stated that a serious error was occurring from my IP address, and that only by calling 571 620 0122 could the matter be resolved.

Supposedly this is a message that is internally generated?

I am having computer problems. For example, earlier today, I could read posts but not any OP's, as the OP's all had Lines (like school notepaper lines) and without ANY text, so I couldn't tell what the OP actually said, only the responses.

The message (supposedly from Microsoft) read: need to debug browser spyword 895 system 32.exe

Any one know if I am now being scammed? I haven't called the number yet, and won't do so til people here and my computer tech give me the Big A-Okay..

Does anyone here know of Foster Care Advocacy groups? (People trying to reform Foster Care)

I would love to find the names of several decent organizations that are involved with Foster Care and reforms.

Also a decent Illinois based Civil Rights attorney.

Thanks in advance.

So here the public has a gazillion documents, put together by an interconnected web of over

One hundred news outlets, and yet I can still turn on CBS, NBC, ABC and/or PBS on my TV and all I will hear about is Trump, Cruz, Hillary, Bernie and maybe a story about someone's cutely trained dog or cat or macaw.

American journalism, where art thou?

OH please, enough with the party-approved canned messages.

The fact that someone other than a Sanders supporter is saying something, doesn't make the Sanders supporter any less right in proclaiming their statement.

The sun does rise in the East. And whether it is a Sanders supporter or a Fox news analyst or Dennis Miller saying it, it is true.

The exit polls in both Missouri and Illinois showed us Sanders supporters exactly how carefully a rigged game it is.

There is a science to exit polls and how to apply them, and in both those states, decent voting analysts are saying the same thing.
