"...fewer are willing to believe that imperial feminism is the best we can do"

Dear Hillary, Madeleine and Gloria: Full Feminism Demands We Say No to America's Deadly Imperial Wars
Clinton does not have a monopoly on feminism.



Nonetheless, the statement rightfully provoked rebuke, including from some who grew up respecting Steinem. “The good news is that more and more of us are ready to change the whole system, and fewer and fewer are willing to believe that imperial feminism is the best we can do,” declared Philadelphia-based writer Sarah Grey.

Hillary: Paid speeches better protected than high level emails

Oh, Hillary. Thank you for being obtuse and not trusting of most people in this country. For protecting yourself in such a way it opens you to mortal wounds.

Maybe there is no "there" there, but your actions just make it like a carrot on a stick.

She is a fortress.


But what we really want is a community center. People coming and going, getting help, learning new things and a bulletin board with numbers on a sheet of paper offering a service to rip off and carry in your purse.

She is like that kid who has been up to something, and you cannot get a straight answer out of them unless you ask them in a specific way. They could have been doing nothing really or they could have been doing something really but they answer the same way.

This is a real flaw that many voters feel when they think of her. She doesn't trust us, so we don't trust her.

WA State is giving more to Bernie

Washington state isn’t just feeling the Bern. We’re on fire with it.

Consider: The Sanders campaign has gotten more donations from Washington state residents than all the other presidential candidates combined. That includes the one other Democrat (Hillary Clinton) plus all 10 Republicans still in the race.


We are talking number of donations, which may be an inkling to number of voters. Could WA state go for Bernie? I will be caucusing on March 26th.

Become a PCO as the Seattle for Bernie Sanders group wrote:

The chaos that ensued at about 90 of the precinct caucuses in Iowa was due, in large part, to the absence of PCO's in those precincts. Attached is a list of AVAILABLE PCO positions in varying precincts around King County. THERE ARE MANY. Scroll the list and see if your precinct is PCO-less.

And here is for Pierce County.http://www.piercecountydems.org/precinct-committee-officers

Anyone else in a different county, please feel free to add in the comments!

It's sad that Bill wanted to build a bridge to Hope and Hillary wants to destroy it.

Remember the 90s and the Boy from Hope?

All Hillary has run on both this election and the last one, was making fun of the word "Hope". She tried to vilify Obama for running on Hope and Change like it was an idiotic stance. This election, she has hit her stride. No more just making fun of this emotion, but proudly telling us why it is a fantasy and make no mistake, her presidency would be devoid of this infantile emotion.


Thanks, but no thanks.

Newest declared candidate who is running against Bernie.

The good news, if h wins the nom, we can vote for these guys







Great new video with the build of Sanders rise

Please check this OP out

You will love it, I promise!

Yee haw??

I think the breach has gone both ways. I certainly have not signed up to follow that woman. Any others out there?

The immigrant experience is hard and wonderful..

no matter where you are coming from, no matter if it was happy choice or a decision to save the family.

I think this woman wrote this, not really to blame Hillary for the lives they lived because of the state of Argentina, but that it differs so vastly from Hillary and her immediate family's situation.

I am half Native American and Mexican from my father's side and Irish from my mother's side.

The history of my direct ancestors is one of hardship. The Irish side landed in N. Carolina in 1848. The Mexican side crossed the border in 1905 or there abouts and the Native side was pushed onto reservation in 1854 according to this;
http://redcliff-nsn.gov/divisions/TNRD/H.htm

We don't feel the reverberations of the Irish immigration, too many generations removed. The Native and Mexican is still felt. My grandparents lived through it. My grandmother, was naturalized in 1911 long before my grandfather was recognized as an American.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_Citizenship_Act
1924.

My grandmother, mi abuela, didn't go to high school, she lived a poor but faithful to the church existence. She lived with my grandfather, who was so wounded by Indian School that he continued a cycle of violence to his son and then unto us. She could not leave him because of her faith, her family and society. She had few options.

We still feel the reverberations of scars, racism, imperialism, dislocation and shame of who we are.

This is not Hilary's experience. That is what I get from all of this "non-scandal" as some stupid poster wrote. It is only a non-scandal if you are not hurt. That is crazy. I empathize with the stories of immigrants all over this world. It is a tough thing to be an outsider to a hostile host.
