Cenk Uygur talks about msnbc with Jesse Ventura

I was having a great chuckle this morning thinking about what the GE would look like if Jesse Ventura wins the Libertarian leadership bid. While checking out old wrestling vids to find something that might look like Jesse v. Trump, I found this. Didn't realize how scared/beholden msnbc was/is.

And now, for your Saturday morning entertainment, here's Venutra v. (use your imagination) Trump

Shameful outcome of US foreign policy in Honduras under SOS Clinton?

Hoping for a democratic win under Hillary Clinton?
You can not be a democrat and a Hillary supporter.
You can not be an environmentalist and a Hillary supporter.
You can not support indigenous rights as a Hillary supporter
You can not support feminist rights as a Hillary supporter.
You certainly can not be a pacificist and a Hillary supporter.

You can only live with your hypocrisy

Not a good day for Hillary: Honduran enviro activist Berta Caceres assassinated

As if the email thing wasn't enough, we are reminded again today of Hillary's very bad record as Secretary of State in her admitted involvement of the American led military coup against democratically elected Zelaya in 2009. It's in her book, Hard Choices. Not only the violence in Honduras, but also the refugee 'crises' of Hondurans in the US can be laid at her feet.

The homicide rate in Honduras, already the highest in the world, increased by 50 percent from 2008 to 2011; political repression, the murder of opposition political candidates, peasant organizers and LGBT activists increased and continue to this day. Femicides skyrocketed. The violence and insecurity were exacerbated by a generalized institutional collapse. Drug-related violence has worsened amid allegations of rampant corruption in Honduras’ police and government. While the gangs are responsible for much of the violence, Honduran security forces have engaged in a wave of killings and other human rights crimes with impunity.

SC CNN Poll for women 50+ ONLY! Don't be disheartened!

The numbers showing a substantial lead for Hillary in SC are skewed. Please check the details pp33 onwards. There are #'s only for women 50+ in sub urban areas. All other demographics are listed as N/A.

Why someone would release such an incomplete poll is beyond me... not.

Maybe this should be in another discussion thread but it is important to know where these numbers come from for everyone.

About floppyboo

Let me get this out of the way first: I am a Canadian. Half Canadienne, Half Norwegian. I am a woman. I endeavor to keep my posts objective. My slant is definitely towards a democracy that works on a meritocracy that is based, ideally, on a starting point of a level playing ground and a fair kick at the can, no matter your passion, so long as it embodies fairness and justice to all the peoples of the earth, and of course, to mother earth herself. Thank you for helping me learn more through the dialogue here on DU.
