Considering the nasty unproven claims about

Bernie and his supporters, I just would like my fellow
supporters to know that this is exactly the kind of
issue, which made me send Bernie another contribution.

Perhaps some of you might want to show him as well
that we stand with him, and will support him,when his
campaign is being attacked.

GO Bernie GO!!

Just an idea here: The NV problem gave the

establishment a blue eye. So what is easier for Brock
using his slime machine to blame Bernie supporters
for it.

In other words, it is the perfect use of his 'HIT PEOPLE"
to send disgusting messages to the Dem bureaucrats
to blame the Bernie supporters for those. That would be just
his line.

Anger and shouting or hollering from the Bernie supporters
had to be expected, but by nowI doubt all this very
obnoxious behavior coming fro them.

After all, we all know a lot about Brock's tactics.

This does not excuse bad behavior of B's supporters.

Simple question for the HRC supporters:

Why do you want a second Clinton impeachment, in case
of her election?

You know that the House won't change, you know
that they will try to get all the info about her from
the FBI investigation, no matter whether they clear
her or not.

Do you rally look forward to that?

this is a rant about the forgotten ones

The Democratic Party used to care about the
everyday working people, but has since the
90ties not paid attention to them (may be even

Everyone talks about education, and I don't want
to minimize it, because we need educated
citizens .
Yet here is my point: How many people among all
workers really need an MBA, a college degree to do
the following:

Drive a truck or bus,
paint a house or rooms,
do carpentry,
trim trees and bushes,
work on cars as mechanics,
pour cement or work on roads,
cut hair,
work in a shop,
work on small farms,
welders or plastic workers,
put up roofs or repair them?

I think you get what I mean. Whatever you want to
call them, blue collar workers or anything else, these
people have been forgotten for a long time by our party;
and that is a shame.

a lot of these people are NOT stupid, but they
are the ones going either for Bernie or for Trump,
because they feel that both parties don't care about them.

I don't know the percentage of those workers in
comparison of those with degrees, but I think it
may be substantial.

We have to concentrate on them, instead of leaving
them to Trump or the repugs.

Thank you for reading this.

I just watched the Correspondents' Dinner.

May be I am living on a weird planet,
because CNN put down Larry Gilmore,
while I found most of his talk right
on target.
The Cruz item was waring out, but otherwise
he hit the right people by mainly hitting on
the media as being totally biased.
