Here's a freshman Representative who truly impresses me!

You want to know WHY it is that I find her to be so impressive... it's HER WORK and the fact that SHE'S BUSY WORKING with and for HER CONSTITUENTS!

I really like that she doesn't feel any need to tag along behind other high-profile politicians and try and use someone else to boost her public image and persona. She's smart enough and confident enough to know that her work for her constituents will speak for itself without the need to showboat.

She's got her priorities right. She doesn't hate the Democratic party, and she takes seriously her responsibility and obligation to work for the benefit of those who elected her. I also like that she doesn't try to smear, attack and divide our party with smears and attacks on fellow Democrats and against the party.


We need more just like her. She sets a great example! THAT is the best "wake-up call" message.

Quoting you in full...

Quoting you in full, so that I can add this post to my "DU Journal" (which will let me easily find it in the future). I'll probably need to quote you again (sadly) in the future... but with your words, I'll be better prepared.

In a discussion with a relative who is a Republican, he said, "All Lives Matter, Not just black lives." It's a common theme that people use to argue against the "Black Lives Matter" slogan.

I told him, and I paraphrase, "Yes, all lives do matter, but the lives of black people and other minorities have historically not mattered as much as white people's lives. As white people, we take it for granted that we will not be choked to death by a police officer. Black people, in particular, cannot take that for granted, because many black lives have been taken in that way by the police. So, when they say 'Black Lives Matter,' try to think of it as 'Black Lives Matter, Too" or 'Black Lives Matter as Much as White Lives and Your Life Matter.' That's what it means, and that has not been the case in the past and even today. It should be. So, that's why that slogan is being used."

My relative thought about that for a minute, and then agreed with me. Maybe that explanation can help others explain those words.

The Best and Most Detailed Large-Scale Model Railroad layout in the World

I loved this! You really need to enlarge to "full-screen" mode in order to appreciate all the wonderfully marvelous attention to detail. It reminds me of my childhood, I lived near a railroad yard.

THE SUNDANCE CENTRAL RAILROAD - The Sundance was formed in January 2004 with the goal to create a more detailed and uniformly scened, large-scale traveling layout. This 1:20.3 scale modular model railroad consisting of forty modules for a layout size of 45 feet by 45 feet. The railroad consists of 400 feet of hand laid code 250 aluminum rails that are hand spiked with individual tie plates onto wood ties with a total of 16 turn-outs.

The modular was built by a group of seven model train enthusiasts. This diverse group is made up of people who have a passion of early narrow gauge steam locomotives to modern day standard gauge diesels.

The purpose for forming this modular group was to provide the public a realistic look at model railroading in a large-scale format. The modules are highly detailed from the scratch built supporting structures and buildings down to the surrounding scenery. The trains and rolling stock that will be running on these modules will also be highly detailed and weathered.

Are her eyes getting narrower? (But just look at the size of those kidneys!)

God, I hate that woman! Nipped, tucked, stuffed, plumped, injected, trimmed, shaved, plucked, tightened, pulled, tweaked, lifted, scrubbed, polished, sucked, vacuumed, twisted, tied, plucked, puffed, dyed, and siliconed.

What a phony baloney she is.

As always. Same as it ever was.

Any moment now you'll hear a rousing chorus begin to swell-up with the familiar verse of "Her Vote Didn't Matter" followed by that long-time favorite "It Was Going to Pass Anyway".

What did he have to say about efforts to "kneecap" Biden? Anything?

Bernie's "top campaign staff" members were Jill Stein voters/supporters...

Bernie's "top campaign staff" members were Jill Stein voters/supporters. Both Gray and Turner are Jill Stein voters and supporters. Bernie chose them as a slap in the face to the Democrats... and they using every possible opportunity to do exactly that (Gray especially.)

None of this happened in a vacuum. It's not happening organically. This was intentional. It was an intentional selection of people who hated Democrats or who were hostile to the Democratic party. It is a cesspool. People like Gray and her ilk are cancers... they are metastasizing.

There is no getting around this. These people are part of his campaign staff (his campaign does continue, you know, in direct contrast to what he's said) as well as supporters. They are still attacking VP Biden with the Russian Trolls memes.

All I'm trying to say here is that these are not conservationists which used to define the Green party. Not anymore. Stein gave it over to Putin to attack the Democratic Party and the American voting system. I think it's important for people to admit this plain and simple truth. That's fair, right?

Well, he also claimed that he "worked as hard as he could" to help Hillary after the convention...

Donald Trump must be defeated,” Bernie Sanders insists, “and I will do everything in my power to make that happen.”
Well, he also claimed that he "worked as hard as he could" to help Hillary after the convention... but we know that's not entirely true.

But I guess it's a bit subjective. Indeed it may HAVE been "as hard as he could" ... perhaps because he wasn't capable (physically or emotionally or otherwise) of doing more. But both he and his defenders often cite his claim as if it was some sort of NEW RECORD-BREAKING STANDARD of excellence to which future campaign rivals will be judged.

However, in comparison with what Hillary did for her former rival in 2008, it's clear that Bernie's "efforts" were somewhat lackluster and perfunctory (at best... and I'm being polite and generous in using those specific adjectives.)

I recently found this side-by-side comparison that someone did. It reveals a lot when you can look at the data... and the data tells a significantly different story than the "hard as I could" claim.

All I'm trying to say is that it's important that we be entirely honest when examining someone's claims about their own performance. The American people deserve to know the truth and it's not always a good idea to accept someone's own boasting without closer examination and comparison. That's fair, isn't it?


He was fired by the campaign and then rehired by Jane Sanders

Thank you.

I'll never forgive Jane for her election-day tweet that was giving people "permission" to NOT vote for our party's nominee.

She couldn't bring herself to simply say "Vote for the Democrat"... so she tweeted some interesting election day advice to her twitter followers. Basically, it seems to me that she was expressing her belief that it was okay to not vote for the party's nominee... as long as the person voted and "followed their heart".

So... with that as a historical reference, it makes perfect sense that she'd rehire him.
