About Me

Thanks to the swarm. I hope your echo chamber is shocked when reality strikes.

For those who don't remember

Bill Clinton had a whole Nightline, (remember journalism?) dedicated to this letter
http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/pages/frontline/shows/clinton/etc/draftletter.html

"Dear Colonel Holmes,

I am sorry to be so long in writing. I know I promised to let you hear from me at least once a month, and from now on you will, but I have had to have some time to think about this first letter. Almost daily since my return to England I have thought about writing, about what I want to and ought to say. First, I want to thank you, not just for saving me from the draft, but for being so kind and decent to me last summer, when I was as low as I have ever been. One thing which made the bond we struck in good faith somewhat palatable to me was my high regard for you personally. In retrospect, it seems that the admiration might not have been mutual had you known a little more about me, about my political beliefs and activities. At least you might have thought me more fit for the draft than for ROTC. Let me try to explain.


Those who don't remember history, make silly OPs on opinion boards.

WA state: Pierce County did this yesterday!

Pierce County, WA Caucus passes amazing amendment - if superdelegates don't vote for the person who won majority of vote, they lose funding.



ETA : that looks better!

One address, how many companies?

As it turns out, Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump share something pertinent in common, after all — a tax haven cozily nested inside the United States.
This brick-and-mortar, nondescript two-story building in Wilmington, Delaware would be awfully crowded if its registered occupants — 285,000 companies — actually resided there. What’s come to be known as the “Delaware loophole” — the unassuming building at 1209 North Orange Street — has become, as the Guardian described, “famous for helping tens of thousands of companies avoid hundreds of millions of dollars in tax.”


Sometimes, Facebook feeds give you a little pot of gold.

Still. Here. We've been moved to the parking lot. Jason Lee Middle School kicked us out.

New Video from Peace House

They went to a Trump rally in t-shirts that read Muslims for Trump. The video talks about our fears and the realities of how we got sold down the river by the establishment. There is a brief mention of Sanders at the end.

Beautifully done.
