    Driving home now..have been traveling and in meetings all day..

    SG, do not fret…don’t …it’s not always all it appears to be…

    The fact that the plutocrat-owned media with their matching orders is spinning a New York win over an unknown Senator from Vermont who entered the race barely serveral months ago out of frustration and on a whim, as something extraordinary for the wife of the former president, turned carpetbagger senator, turned brokered deal appeasement token vanity Sec. of State…turned preemptively coronated party candidate with everything rigged in her favor..and every advantage delivered on a platter to her…and after losing 7 states in a row by the way …


    Even if Bernie Sanders chooses not to stay on in the race…and even if he decides not to run as an Independent…

    I will never vote for Hillary Clinton…never..

    This diehard Democrat will vote 3rd party for the first time in my life…

    I’ll hold my nose and vote for the other woman in the race: Jill Stein…she’ll be the lesser of two ughs as far as I’m concerned…and she’ll also meet that much touted argument to make it a woman this time…

    I will. Never. Vote. Hillary Clinton. Never…

  2. Hillary speaking…. *muting all tvs in the house* *click, click, click*

  3. I know one thing, I won’t be voting for Hillary if she is the nominee. Hell to the NO!

      DITTO. And the pundits pushing the meme for Sanders to give it up. Please! did Hillary give up when the MATH looked impossible for her to clinch the 2008 presidential nomination?

    Voter Suppression is…

    when you would be 42 years old, if you had stayed in the state of your birth before you’d be able to vote in this country and that’s AFTER you put on the uniform and put your life on the line for said country

    when you attempt to register people to vote and wind up with a cross burning on your lawn

    when you have a Bachelors and Masters degree, and are asked to inform the registrar – how many bubbles are in a bar of soap.

    or how many jelly beans are in that jar.

    or to recite the preamble to the U.S. Constitution..

    and, even after you’ve done that, you are asked to recite the Declaration of Independence – verbatim.

    Or, you have to take a test, on your state’s constitution, that lawyers, registered to practice law in your state – don’t know….

    Or, being told that you can get a ‘ Free Voter ID’, but in order to get the ‘ Free ID’, you have to spent Hundreds of $$$$, and make numerous trips to various agencies to get the paperwork for the ‘ Free Voter ID’

    ALL of the above is voter suppression.

    What is NOT Voter Suppression?

    You being too fucking lazy to know the ins and outs of VOTER REGISTRATION DEADLINES.

    You being too arrogant and believing that the laws, which have been in place – FOR YEARS – should be changed, because, well, of YOU.

    They didn’t just come up with a closed primary in New York last week, last month, or last year.

    And, if ‘offends’ you to register with a political party…that is YOUR RIGHT.

    But, sit down, shut THE PHUCK up, and wait for you turn to vote in November.

    If you don’t like that there is no Early Voting – get the legislature to change it.
    If you don’t like that there is no ‘ No Reason’ Absentee – get the legislature to change it.
    If you don’t like that it’s a ‘closed Primary’ – get the legislature to change it.
    If you don’t like that there is no Election Day Registration – get the legislature to change it.

    IF you have not spoken up before about these things…then go somewhere and STFU.

    Trump’s jet not registered to fly with FAA
    04/19/16 01:31 PM EDT

    A jet owned by Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump and frequently used on the campaign trail is not currently registered to fly, according to a new report.

    Registration for Trump’s Cessna jet expired on Jan. 31 and is not in good standing based on Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) records, the New York Times reported Tuesday.

    Trump was warned by the FAA that the jet’s registration was set to expire and was informed by the agency when it lapsed, according to the report.

    Benjamin Netanyahu moving Israel in ‘wrong direction,’ Joe Biden says

    Vice President Joe Biden acknowledged “overwhelming frustration” with Israel’s government on Monday and said Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s administration has led Israel in the wrong direction, in an unusually sharp rebuke of America’s closest ally in the Middle East.

    Biden, in a speech to the advocacy group J Street, offered a grim outlook for peace efforts, reflecting dim hopes for progress during the remainder of the Obama administration. Although he said Israelis and Palestinians shared blame for undermining trust and shirking responsibility, he was emphatic in his critique of Netanyahu’s government, suggesting his approach raised “profound questions” about how Israel could remain both Jewish and democratic.

    “I firmly believe that the actions that Israel’s government has taken over the past several years — the steady and systematic expansion of settlements, the legalization of outposts, land seizures — they’re moving us and more importantly they’re moving Israel in the wrong direction,” Biden said.
