It's time to aim the hammer and tongs at the eventual GOP nominee

I never thought I'd say this, but The Donald looks like he will be their idiotic nominee.

Time to stop the circular firing squad here among Democrats and fight the real threat to Democracy. . .Heir Donald of Assholeland.

Is it just me, or the more their campaign goes south, the more smug, snarky, arrogant

and dismissive HRC supporters have become? They don't seem to be doing much to win in roads into Bernie supporters. It is as though they are telling us "we'll get the nomination and we don't need your vote to win the election."

The second humans became resources to businesses and corporations was the minute

we stopped mattering to anyone that "owns" the country.

More good cops: Cop Reveals That ‘Planting Evidence And Lying’ Are Just ‘Part Of The Game’

One of the editors at the DC Post stumbled across a web site where local law enforcement deputies speak freely and post with 100% anonymity. Officers frequently exchange tactical information, as well as procedural tips and “methods to use to gain compliance of subjects or to arrest them for being difficult,” the Post explains.

One such post, that was entitled “Tricks of the trade – let’s exchange!” was started by a deputy who admitted much more than officers usually do to people outside of their forces:

To them, it's just a game

Remind me again why I should respect police.

HRC gets more establishment, insider endorsements. To Bernie, this is the only important endorsement

See, these are called voters. 20K at a clip come to watch him speak. Over 2M donors. That's the only endorsement that matters.

It's called "the people." Let her get as many Party elites, insiders and Superdelegates as possible. Bernie speaks to the people!

We endorse Bernie Sanders! We! American voters!

Just got my Democrats Abroad Townhall question request for the next townhall

These are my questions for Hillary and Bernie:

For Hillary:
There has been a lot of talk about illegal immigration. When you were Sec of State, your consulates normally deny legal visas to the US for any reason and no reason. My wife was denied a B2 visa and it almost cost us our honeymoon. Now we are going for her green card and, after a long time and almost $3000, we're no where near getting it while waiting for her K3 visa. However, if she were getting an H-1B visa, she would be streamlined to acceptance. This makes the system impossible and actually encourages illegal immigration and people overstaying visas. There are literally thousands of people in my position. As Sec. of State, you did little to make this process less cumbersome and demeaning to both the American and foreigner. As president, how will you address LEGAL immigration problems so families won't be separated for months at a time waiting for the US Government to approve? If my wife did not have her B2 visa, we would be separated until she got her K3 visa.

For Bernie:
You have addressed illegal immigration. I am an American, my wife is a Chinese national. I want to know, as president, how will you address the demeaning and cumbersome process of people who legally want to immigrate to this country so families won't separated, but workers can get streamlined? The system we have now is beyond expensive, time consuming and actually encourages immigrants to break the law and come illegal or overstay visas.

My wife has made a major decision RE: Immigration

She got her green card approval. She's going to Guangzhou for the K3 visa interview and to get her visa packet for the green card.

After we buy the house in Northern Virginia, my wife has decided to go for her American citizenship. She will give up her Chinese citizenship to become an American.

I did not force her (in fact, I tried to talk her out of it). But she decided the benefits outweigh the bad.

So, in a little while, I will be introducing my wife as the newest American citizen.

I just did something I've only done two other times in my life

I voted FOR a candidate rather than against the other guy!

I just submitted my scanned absentee ballot to the Pima County Recorder's office for Bernie Sanders and had an ear-to-ear smile on my face clicking "send."

Go Bernie Go!

About Feeling the Bern

Principle before party is my belief. Lifelong Democrat, but I have no tolerance for blue dogs, tepid centrists, or weak Democrats that feel apologetic to Republicans. The way to win a political war is to fight the enemy using their tactics against them.
