Yep.

Local Democratic honchos where I live have said essentially the same thing.

I'm getting tired/scared of people trying to warn/help being rebuffed/ignored.

Hey, look what I just found!

While researching a response to a Bernie reply about God.

Adding headline - I considered the name of the link descriptive enough, but I now see it doesn't all show.

Gallup: Record 58% of Americans Would Vote to Elect an Atheist President

Does anyone else find it offensive

that Mrs. Greenspan is one of the moderators of this debate? I find it impossible to take her seriously, myself.

On edit.

Anrdrea Mitchell, who is married to Mr. Greenspan.

I still happily plead guilty to mentioning the connection, and add that if I disagreed with hubby on fundamental moral issues we would no longer be married. Thanks for helping me appreciate hubby.

OK, I said I was going to stay off teh tablet during the debate, but

Bernie, what's with this "my good friend" Trump??? Hope the hoi polloi gets it....!

Edited to add that even hubby noticed.

Is this normal? (Question re TPP comment period.)

It feels like I just heard about the TPP comment period being open, so in my mind I had plenty of time.

But it says here the last day is January 13, i.e., Wednesday, and that the comment period opened on December 28, i.e., last week.

The last time I commented was on net neutrality, and I had though that period was at least a couple of months. Am I remembering correctly there?

Are the PTB trying to hide the TPP comment period? It sure seems like it.

The Horatio Alger myth (debunked).

Some recent posts made me think about this. I've actually read a number of his books and enjoyed them a great deal. But they are not what the myth says and (side note), he was apparently not a very nice man.

So, presented for your consideration.

Amazingly, a staple of Horatio Alger stories was wealthy benefactors who gave the heroes gifts and helped them on their way, thus contradicting the basis of the idea of a self-made man achieving success through hard work. Dick, the star of Alger’s Ragged Dick series and his most famous creation, once said in a story, “I’d like it if some rich man would adopt me, and give me plenty to eat and drink and wear, without my havin’ to look so sharp after it.”

Please rec this - it's a Republican/conservative/capitalist useful lie/meme that, IMHO, needs to be smacked down.

If he wins the nomination,

then the party should throw everything it can behind him. Since he will then, of course, be the nominee of the party.

Happy new year from maybe my favorite living person.

Thank you.

I love that man so much. I really think he did the best he thought he could, and I am infinitely appreciative that he was willing to put himself out there.
