I miss Keith Olbermann so much!

MSNBC has been lame since he left! Bring back Jon Stewart on the Daily Show too! I know neither one will happen but I can dream can't I????

Have you noticed an uptick in newbies with less than 100 posts?

Trolls are going wild right now. Man do the Repugs want Bernie bad.

More on ignore today. GDP is nuts today!

Is it because they feel it is berning out? I have friends who are Bernie supporters outside of a couple of them, they are going to vote for Hillary if she is the nominee. On here, it looks like they all are going green or not at all. I don't see it as dire as some do, I think Hillary will be fine. Once people realize the Supreme Court could go to Trump and his nutcase allies, they will see the light.

I said I would not put long time DU'ers on ignore, just short timers, but that died today. I could not take it anymore.

Be sure everyone you help register or are talking to know what ID is needed to vote.

Be sure they have checked with voter registration officials to make sure their registration matches exactly the id they are going to present. Make sure the address matches as well.

This seems very mundane, but so many states are trying to stop us from voting, especially minorities and elderly people. I think we should have people calling our voters and making sure they have what they need to legally vote.

I predict a really nasty November trying to vote.

I have tried so hard to be patient with the Sanders supporters but I can't do it anymore.

I would vote for Bernie if he was the nominee but he won't be, it isn't going to happen. It feels very cult like, my friends who are Bernie people are totally unreasonable right now. I tried to stay off the ignore button. But honestly I have been ignoring people who joined since January and who have some hides. By doing that I can almost handle coming here.

I love America as much as they do, I resent being called a "tool" or a "corporatist" a "third way" person. I have chosen my candidate but I will vote straight ticket Democrat this year as I have in the past. Some of the Bernie people terrify me, some I believe are trolls, so much right wing nonsense.

It cannot get to June 16 soon enough for me.

Oklahoma cuts Higher Ed another 16 percent.

We like it here, but if you are looking for a job in higher ed I would think long and hard before coming here to Oklahoma right now. We are under fire by the anti intellectual crowd. The Legislature, which is nuts, want control of tuition rates again so they are making our lives miserable. These cuts will be people this time.
