This is why I'm a Christian. Because Jesus said things like

"How hard it is for those who have wealth to enter the kingdom of God! Indeed, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God." Mat 18:24-25

Followers of Jesus are few and far between among Republicans, while among Democrats, they're the norm. Even when they call themselves atheists.

Here I thought it was a few bad apples. Uh-uh.

It's a rotten stickin' orchard and it needs to be cut down so we can grow new, healthy police who know whom they serve (hint: ALL THE PEOPLE) and who do not disrespect a mayor who was elected by THE PEOPLE and who loves his half-African American son as much as they love their children.

Any cop worth his badge would bow his head in shame at the behavior of these solipsistic creeps. Cops are blue collar workers but lately they act like they're there to protect the 1% and stomp on the poor and working class. Maybe they watch too much Fox News. Maybe they think they're a blue tribe against a black tribe. Maybe they'd better open their eyes.

And maybe the state peace officer training agency had better tighten its standards. Because the cops who turned their backs on Mayor De Blasio are not worthy of their jobs.

I was ready to ask nothing more than a clean-up of the police force. Now I think we need a total clean OUT. I've never been more angry at the police than I am now.

Let's not allow this anger die down. Let's make it heard in mainstream media and make it go viral.

Sweet indeed, BrotherIvan --

Kitties love us, too. I hope all is well with your significant other.

She wants to be president. She and Bill have wanted it since they left the White House. Anyone who

gets in their way is an enemy. Her "base" comprises anyone who wants her for president. That is the qualifier. That is the only qualifier. That's what she stands for.

I don't like her either, ballyhoo, but I can guarantee

that a Republican president would go after our senior citizen entitlements way faster than any Democrat. The time to head her off is at the pass known as the primary. We need a progressive alternative.

Mitt & John just can't stop sucking

on those sour grapes. Bad losers. Baaaad looosers.

So arrogant of Mitty to think he can tell the President to apologize to the American people. Especially when he himself doesn't even like the American people!

All of this is good, but it cannot succeed unless we use our beautiful government

the way our founding fathers/mothers intended us to use it. We MUST find a way to use the power of the vote to control our own government. We ARE the people. WE are the reason this nation exists. Seriously: they did not fight for the 1%. They fought for US.

The 1% are trying to buy off OUR government (it's called bribery), but if this country, this nation, is to succeed, we must literally muscle them out (we don't have the $$ but we do have the numbers).

We must take back the government. There's no other way.

One of the things I love about Bernie

is his willingness to discuss the REAL issues openly, calmly and rationally without getting nasty toward his opponent(s). I hope he runs as a Dem in the primaries, and I will gladly give him what money and support I can.

He is the only one who is going to tell the American people the truth. Even if the uber-prepared, fussed and trussed, moneyed-up, insanely cautious Hillary wins the primary, she'll have had to either: a) discuss the issues, or b) look very bad indeed for having avoided them.

Run, Bernie, run.
