I am switching to Hillary.

I was for Bernie. Then I heard Hillary at the debate... the way she took on the Wall Street Banksters and their behaviors that led to the crash of 2008.

She told them, straight up. "CUT IT OUT!"

That's exactly the kind of strong president we need. Someone who will stand up to Putin when he launches air strikes against Syria.

Yo, Putin, "CUT IT OUT !" Guaranteed to work.

Or if the Chinese decide to shell or invade Formosa.

Chairman Mao, "CUT IT OUT !" You just watch Mao crawl back under his rock.

That's the kind of action we need from a president.

Countering N.R.A. My suggestion, what is yours?

So what do they do? They set up a phone tree. When a law is introduced that proposes to make us safer, they use the phone tree to tie up legislators' lines. The bombard lawmakers' offices with phone calls.

The legislators get scared and the bill is dropped.

How can we set up a similar response to feckless lawmakers?

There is not but one god.

When you think on it, there are contrasts and conflicts in our world and our lives. To believe in one god leaves you to question how these contrasts come to be. Believing in many gods, each with different powers and personalities, provides answers to how these different experiences and events come to be.

-have your own debates without Hillary.

The fuss is about the D.N.C. hosting only three debates. There is enough money in the secondary candidates funds to rent a venue and host their own debates. Two or three more would work.

CNN or PBS would certainly stream them.

Hillary can choose to show up or face an empty chair. Or Eastwood certainly would be willing to stand in for her.

RECALL THE BASTARD ! New Jersey Democratic Committee --All Hat, No Cattle.

So I gets another fundraising email from the committee about how they are going to do great things to stop Christie.... and by the way, a few $$$ will help us control the bastard.

We have the most unpopular governor ever, I replied. They and the unions have the mechanism to write, distribute and present a recall petition. "If you and the unions do something positive and constructive by organizing and filing a recall petition, I will contribute."

Until then, they are as useless as my left nut.

RE: Ashley Madison. Which family values name do you hope appears?

Ralph Reid would work for me.

St. Hillary, The Annoited in Iowa. A mother with a dying daughter approached Hillary.

The mother asked that Hillary support medical marijuana.

Hillary's response: It needs more research.

That is about as cold as Dukakis' response to the hypothetical question of what would he do if someone killed his wife.

ADDENDUM: After linking to the C-span of her walk at the Iowa State Fair, I am less unhappy about Hillary's response to the mom. While she offered nothing more specific in response to the mother, she did offer support. Still, what does that mean? Does it mean putting research money into the benefits and improved treatment that uses medical marijuana? Does it mean asking her attorney general to lay off prosecuting its use?

The link is about 12 posts down.

Her response begins at 8:40 in the link.

Cecil and Safari Club International. - Big game hunting organization.

I was pissed after I Googled this organization of mighty and brave hunters of big game.

One link that caught my attention was the effort of anti-hunters to stop airlines from embargoing big big game trophies. It seems Delta Airlines permits shipping of big game trophies, such as Cecil's head. Some other airlines do not.

Call Delta and let them know how you feel about this.

Google this organization.

Better yet, search them on the D.U. search bar. They are, of course, conservative and their members donate to Republican causes.

"Stop Resisting !" These are the new magic words.

According to several recent videos I have viewed, beating the shit out of some handcuffed sot is permitted if the cop shouts the magic words while doing so.
