Senator Kamala Harris on Nipsey Hussle's Legacy

A millennial has taken the stage and he is extremely impressive.

We have a millennial making waves as he campaigns to be the next Presidential candidate for the Democratic Party. It really is exciting and he shatters every myth that millennials have been unfairly tagged with, as a whole. Some of the most amazing people I know hit early adulthood at the turn of the century.

Buttigieg is wonderful in so many ways. He is mature beyond his years and a great reflection of what I feel is going to be a great generation that will fight to make the US a better country than they were raised in. We are already seeing some of it in Congress.

Millennials unite. I think Mayor Pete is someone who can get them to the polls. I also think he is someone who will drive them back to the polls after Harris wins the primary. He is going to be amazing for our Democratic coalition in the decades moving forward.

Go Mayor Pete.

Joe Biden honors late Senator Ernest "Fritz" Hollings

Former Vice President Joe Biden is delivering the eulogy of former South Carolina Senator Ernest "Fritz" Hollings at his funeral services Tuesday at The Citadel in Charleston. Hollings died earlier this month at 97.

The funeral caps off three days of mourning for the former governor and longtime senator, whose body lay in repose Monday at the North Carolina state Capitol.

Biden has been tapped several times to provide moving speeches honoring his late friends in Congress. Earlier this year, Biden delivered a thoughtful and entertaining eulogy of former Michigan Rep. John Dingell. Last year, he honored his longtime friend former Sen. John McCain during his funeral services in Arizona.


There is no hypocrisy when it comes to personal wealth and calling for higher taxes.

To put it into perspective.

Bill Clinton: My Life 15 million The top income tax rate when he took office was 28%. Under his leadership it was raised to ove 38%.

Hillary Clinton: Hard Choices 14 million One of her common themes was raising taxes on the wealthy.

Barack Obama: Dreams From My Father over 6 million. He made more than that from the combination of Audacity of Hope and Of Thee I Sing: A Letter To My Daughters. Obama and Democrats in Congress raised taxes on the wealthiest Americans almost immediately after he took office.

I don’t see any hypocrisy. I would point out the massive difference in demand.

Additionally, these individuals also received substantial income from other areas.

In a bit of irony, Sanders millions can be attributed to two strong women.

I would like to thank Clinton and Warren for him. They have set the stage for him to head off into retirement in a cozy waterfront home. He deserves it.

Bernie Sanders Released His Tax Returns. He's Part of the 1%.
