Now that we know that HRC wanted only 4 debates,

and we know that 2 out of the six are not given
a date (probably shortly before the convention),
we might as well assume that the questions will be
rigged as well.
So let's amuse ourselves to imagine some of
those, like
"Do you like children?"

"Should children get vaccinated?"

"How do you answer Mr. Trump's attack on immigrants?"

"What do you think about Climate Change deniers ?"

I am sure that you will find better ones. Have fun!

I am a white old immigrant to the States

and I have a question for you, but before I do put it before
you, I would like to state this:

I am ashamed of any Bernie supporter, who did this to
Bravenak or who would support such a disgusting
letter. She and I conversed a bit before she was forced to
leave, and I have missed exchanges with her.

Now here is my honest question to this forum:

I have lived for about 3 decades in a black community
in my city. Some of my neighbors have become dear
friends, others I don't know so well. I had never had
many problems due to any racial reason. Our neighborhood
is a low income middle-class community.

There is a serious problem though with gangs (Cribbs and
Bloods) that comes up, goes down, and now has
come up again. The parents worry about their children
getting involved and getting hurt.
What is the reason for those gangs to have so much
influence in spite of most people's worry? I just
have trouble understanding it. Please, if you can
try to explain.

I have to leave now, but will look at your answers
tomorrow. Thanks in advance.

We are in September now. The first debate

will take place in the middle of October.

Do we know where it is going to be held?

Do we know the moderator?

Do we know what topics are included?

I don't, but perhaps some people here do.

Considering the unbelievable amount of fugitives

trying to get into Europe. What is our responsibility
in the US to help them? After all our illegal war in
Iraq started the whole destabilization in the ME, if
not even earlier.

The 100,000 people march in DC

cannot be attended by most people. I just
contacted PDA (Progressive Dems for America),
who have organized for Bernie from the beginning.

I hope that we can coordinate a similar rally in
many cities in different states, and was assured
that something like that is in the works.

It might help if all of you ask the Bernie campaign
to work on a similar project.

Just a suggestion.
