      And it’s long overdue. Next step is to remove all monuments and other memorials that celebrate the Confederacy.

    14 Things Only People Who Adore Print Books Will Understand
    Posted on August 10, 2016 by Elisabeth Delp

    We love reading print books: the roughness of the paper, the weight of it in our hands, the sound the pages make as we turn them… even the way they show their history with highlighted passages, dog-eared pages, and scribbled notes left by previous readers. Print books are both the message and medium, and for some bookworms, print books will never be a thing of the past. Even with the advent of ereaders, there are so many reasons print books will always have a special place in our hearts. Check them out below!

    My computer is as dead as a door nail, can’t even boot. And no warning at all. I’m using my husband’s PC right now. Seems like everything is breaking down at once.

    Poll: Trump only ahead by by 6 in Texas
    By Ben Kamisar

    Hillary Clinton is within 6 points of Donald Trump in Texas, according to a new poll released Tuesday, as the Democratic presidential nominee continues to make inroads in traditionally red states.

    Trump, the Republican nominee, has 44 percent support in the state to Clinton’s 38 percent, according to a survey by the liberal-leaning Public Policy Polling (PPP).

    The Lone Star State has gone Republican in the last nine presidential elections.
    The result is the latest in a string of poor poll numbers for Trump. Recent surveys have shown him down big in battleground states such as Pennsylvania, North Carolina and Virginia, and trailing by smaller margins in Ohio and Florida.

    He also has been getting slimmer-than-expected leads in traditional GOP states such as Georgia, Arizona and Utah.

    Couldn’t count on that clown to actually DO THE RIGHT THING.

    Automatic voter registration hits an Illinois pothole
    08/16/16 11:20 AM
    By Steve Benen

    In March 2015, Oregon became the first state in the nation to embrace automatic voter registration, California adopted the same idea soon after. This year, West Virginia, Vermont, and Connecticut joined the small-but-growing club.

    The AVR road, however, is not without pitfalls. A bill passed in New Jersey, for example, only to be vetoed by Gov. Chris Christie (R). Late last week, as the Chicago Tribune reported, Illinois’ Republican governor also balked, at least for now.
    Gov. Bruce Rauner vetoed a bill aimed at making voter registration automatic in Illinois, citing concerns about potential voting fraud and conflicts with federal law.

    The first-term Republican governor said he wanted to continue negotiations with supporters to work out those issues, but groups backing the measure accused him of playing politics with his veto and said they would seek an override.
    Note, automatic voter registration faced little resistance in Illinois’ Democratic-led state legislature. AVR passed the state House 86 to 30, in the state Senate, it was even more lopsided, 50 to 7.

    Given those totals, state lawmakers will likely have the support necessary to make the legislation law anyway, overriding the GOP governor’s veto.

    That said, Rauner insists he remains open to the idea, his veto notwithstanding, and in a statement, he said he intends to “continue working” on the idea.

      COLD-BLOOEDED KILLER Dylan Roof was hungry after MURDERING 9 people, and he was fed. That hunger comes from the fact that he would have killed more. His HUNGER for murdering people needed to be quenched.

      This is one EVIL MOFO.

    What Obama Did/Didn’t Accomplish for Working Class Americans
    You can’t consider Obama’s accomplishments without acknowledging all the proposals Republicans blocked.

    by Nancy LeTourneau
    August 15, 2016 12:54 PM

    As President Obama’s second term comes to a close, we’re seeing a lot of articles about his legacy – and there will likely to be a lot more over the next few months. Most of them take a positive spin and attempt to summarize his accomplishments over these last eight years. But there is also the approach of taking a look at what he didn’t get done. That is actually something the President himself addressed last month in an interview with Steve Inskeep.

    I’ve been frustrated by some things that I did not complete, that I couldn’t wrap and mail and ship before I got out of here. Immigration reform being a good example. Getting infrastructure done, you know, we got $2 trillion worth of infrastructure. If we got working on that now, we’d be growing a lot faster, the unemployment rate would be even lower, wages would be higher.

    So there are things that we haven’t gotten done. Obviously, there are — there areas internationally where I’ve been enormously frustrated. You look at Syria being the most prominent example, where you’ve got a heartbreaking situation and not a lot of good choices.


    There is a big “tell” right in the beginning of that analysis. Did you catch it? Alderman focuses exclusively on the white working class. As Jamelle Bouie documented so clearly, that excludes a growing portion of that economic group.

    In the collective mind’s eye of political pundits and observers, the “working class” is what it was a generation ago: largely white and mostly male, with a heavy presence in trades and factories. There are still Americans who fit this description. But they’re also a shrinking portion of the working class, and the attention they receive perennially from political observers—many of whom see them as the pivot around which American politics turns—is entirely out of proportion to their declining numbers…

    People of color make up more than a third of America’s labor force, and they’re a large and growing plurality of working-class people in particular. As of this year, 23.5 percent of working people are Hispanic; 15 percent are black; and 3.5 percent are Asian American. That’s a total of 42 percent.

    How one couple saved $1 million in 4 years to retire by age 43

    In 2013, “Mr. and Mrs. 1500” — the pseudonym of soon-to-be early retirees Carl and Mindy — decided to get serious about their savings goals.

    “I was having this horrific day at work,” 42-year-old computer programmer Carl told Farnoosh Torabi on an episode of her podcast. “I was 38 at the time, and I’m like, ‘There’s no way I can do this until I’m 62 or 65 or whatever age people normally retire at.”

    Inspired by the idea of retiring early, the husband-wife duo with two kids vowed to build a portfolio of $1 million and no debt by February 2017. This would allow them to retire in 1,500 days at the ripe age of 43.

    They achieved the $1 million mark ahead of schedule — in April 2016 — and now aim to reach $1.12 million by February, at which point they’ll officially retire.

    The good news is, anyone can do the same — and you don’t have to be an investment banker raking in millions. All it takes is “smart decisions along with intelligent saving and investing,” they write on their blog.

    Here’s a look at exactly how Carl and Mindy are making early retirement a reality:
