I am voting for Bernie Sanders.

My Bubba is dying from PDD. He's a Severe MaCaw.

After 20 years of his friendship I am totally devastated and emotionally a wreck. I'm a man and I can't even go out in public right now ...Cause I break down crying. I'm crying right now. There is no cure. At this point I am his life support. I have to hand feed him. They don't know how this virus is spread or how long it takes to show up. It's real mystery. My avian vet is one of the best in the country. She didn't like it that I can't bring myself to put him down. I understand her point but I love him so much I just can't do that.

Got to stop posting ...crying too much right now.

Frogs in boiling water...

only the frogs are more than willing to have the heat turned up. TPTB have made war clean (like clean coal) so most people have no conscience about the extrajudicial mass murders on the innocent. Meanwhile the soul of the USA is being sold to the greedy rich while the idiots believe they have a chance to become like them. Yes the Dems had the chance to make a lot of huge corrections but they for the most part like our POTUS succumbed to TPTB. I don't believe the POTUS ever really was what he portrayed himself as being during his 1st campaign. I know I feel that I have been lied to. I sit here without health insurance because I fall between the cracks with my income. I'm lucky I have income at my age and my house is paid for ...but I give credit to God for that. I do hate to see the US go down the path of complacency and serfdom as it capitulates to the 1% and insatiable war mongers. IMO the only remedy is a mass revolt with mass protests and civil disobedience ...Howard Zinn would agree. The only real changes that have happened here did so because of revolt. DU is going to have a war in 2016 and it has already started. I'm with the left ...always have been since being anti establishment, anti corrupt corporation and anti war in the 60's.


Blind ignorance is not exclusive to one political party.

I see the attitude like D's are the only smart and sensible ones and then I see the corporate shills and lovers of the rich fawning over their pictures. We are IMO about as conflicted as the GOP is. Corporate 3rd way centrists are the enemies of progressives, populists, liberals and greens. It ain't a purity test. We will never meld with them. We Dems have our own corporate owned tea party. The only reason we are here is so they can have their "big tent" and push their "if you don't vote with us you are voting for the other" freak show. There will never be another FDR because of them. They really don't want an FDR. Status quo is the agenda ak Hillary.

The Dem party is going to lose elections if they don't move to the left IMO.

The alternative: The Dem party will continue to win elections if they solicit corporate donors and bring more corporate thugs into office?

Motto: Poor people don't contribute enough money for us to win campaigns?

Howard Zinn: Protests and civil disobedience is the only way anything vitally important has been changed. (paraphrased summation)

My opinion: Only massive work stoppage, protests, civil disobedience and massive open rebellion will stop them.

What if no one showed up to vote ...because they all stink of filthy greedy rotting corporate money?

In our local sail boat race series we have a minimum race participation to qualify for a trophy ...makes good sense to me.

What if there were not enough votes to qualify to win a presidential election?

How few votes does it take to win?

What is a true majority in a Democracy?

We are all fucked as long as corporapublicrats are in office.

They are closing ranks around us. They have almost completely co-opted our government. They are countries unto themselves and above the law. They know they can continue to suck the life blood out of our country and THEY KNOW THERE'S NOTHING WE CAN DO ABOUT IT. Enjoy your delusion while you can.

A People's History Of The United States - by Howard Zinn - FREE READ!



The Note: This great book should really be read by everyone. It is difficult to describe why it so great because it both teaches and inspires. You really just have to read it. We think it is so good that it demands to be as accessible as possible. Once you've finished it, we're sure you'll agree. In fact, years ago, we would offer people twenty dollars if they read the book and didn't think it was completely worth their time. Of all the people who took us up on it, no one collected.

Before you start complaining that this is unauthorized...

Howard Zinn authorized the publication and display of the work on our website.

This book should be mandatory reading in every school IMO.

We are not known for being a nation of peace!

I wish we were. Wars, prisons, gun deaths, capital punishment, corporate destruction and pollution of nature for profit ...we are vicious nasty mean destructive murders imperialistic plastic shallow stupid ...and it's too late to change now. It's no wonder they (not we) keep putting corporate war lovers in office. Has any country ever been all about peace? Damn hippies!

For the working class a good job is the bottom line.

Nothing else is more important ...unless you can live fine without money. Fuck war ...fuck policy ...fuck the fed ...fuck religion ...fuck the police ...fuck the NSA ...fuck the sociopath billionaires. We the working class people should demand good jobs and settle for nothing less from any political candidate and office holder.

Here's my idea ...and not just mine. It's an old one. Tax the fuck out of the rich! What this will do is force them to work more. The only way to make up for a loss because of taxes is to produce more volume. Producing more volume requires more people jobs. When the rich were taxed a lot more this is what they had to do to keep making their money. What we see now is the rich trying to make as much money as possible with as few people involved as possible. We must change that. We must also change the short term profit methodology. This is very bad. For a corporation or company it says "we don't care about the future" ...get in and get out ...Romney style. We need those long term jobs from companies that plan to stay in business for decades. Without that there never will be a middle class again. You can go making 6 figures for 5 years and then end up without a job and never get a job again so what good did making 6 figures do for you? Better to have that 20< year job and have a steady dependable life style. The Romney types are part of what is killing us.

Sad thing is that we can't keep using traditional forms of energy and expect a clean environment.

There is no alternative energy that can replace what we use and what we use is not a finite source. We can't live in this structure without transportation and that demands oil. We can't all live in the north without heat and its sources of energy. We blame the suppliers when they screw up our environment but we demand the supply ...and we can't solar our way out of this without a mass die off of the population via wars, starvation and exposure. Take one huge problem ...water. What are we going to do ...run pipes from Lake Michigan to the entire nation? Truck water nationwide?

Not that I want this to happen but when fracking ruins the drinking water supply for NYC people will wake the hell up somewhat ...then go back to sleep ...because there's nothing anyone can do about finite resources and the means necessary to acquire them. The train has left the station.

The NSA is evidence that the terrorists have won ...and some people are fine with that.

So when Bush calls the Constitution "just a piece of paper" it's a bad thing ...but when the NSA under the control of a Dem POTUS violates that Constitution then it's a nice generic response like "spying has always been going on ...did you just realize that?" These people deserve the penalty they are receiving ...I just don't want to suffer the same penalty along with them. A wise person will respect the wisdom of the forefathers of the Constitution ...the stupid will discard it as if it doesn't apply anymore ...just because that was then and this is now. History should be valued and its warnings heeded lest the same mistakes be made once again.
