I am happily distracted from politics by NCAA basketball. In the comment section below I will insert a few things to get the conversation started. … Continue reading →
As you may be aware the were login issues on the site today. LD seems to have rectified them. I am attempting to update on recent happenings. Feel free to add if you feel like it. I will start in the comment section. EDIT: I Am curious if you had login issues earlier today. A response in the comment section would help. … Continue reading →
This is an attempt to capture some of the latest news and be a place for people who aren’t necessarily early birds. It also can be a place to unwind after a busy day. Although this is mainly a political site it is not exclusive to that. Feel free to post favorite Music Videos if you desire. I will begin BELOW with a bit of SARCASM and then get to some of the latest news. … Continue reading →
I have seen that the traffic subsides as the day progresses. LD is an early bird and people join in. However things get lost in the comment section and later news seems neglected. We will see if this catches on. A few days should show the results. I will post a new thread at roughly 6:00 EST ( or thereabouts depending on my situation) Comments on my idea are appreciated. … Continue reading →
I haven’t checked out much yet but will start with something that is certainly out of the ordinary. I haven’t a clue where it will end up. AS per usual I will add content in the comment section.
Don’t be fooled by the title of the Jimmy Dore video in which he interviews Caitlin Johnstone. It is much more than that. Her insight into American politics is spot on. I also didn’t want it to be lost at the bottom of today’s thread. It is most certainly worth a view. Comments would be appreciated. PS I’m sure that LD will have an Open Thread later tomorrow.. The link will be in the comment section. … Continue reading →
I will add a few links below. Although he has no realistic chance to win the Chairmanship of the DNC Sam Ronan has a bright future. ( at least I hope so) Feel free to add your own links or comments. … Continue reading →
I have been a long time member. Occasionally I post a thread when they are lacking. ( Mostly on weekends). I hope that this site will flourish but some things should change in order to be successful. Don’t take this personal LD as I like you as a person as I followed you from the “Great Orange Satin” with high hopes for a new home. I like you even though I don’t know you ( because we seem to be on the same wavelength) when you actually comment on things rather than posting multiple links. (occasionally overdone). The number of bots … Continue reading →
The format of posting new threads still is confusing to me. I suppose I could spend some time trying to learn it but this will have to do. I will post more in the comment section. Hopefully LD gets back online sooner than later. … Continue reading →
Keith Ellison is my obvious choice to Chair the DNC but sometimes he just makes me just shake my head at some of his actions. I was totally impressed by his recent town hall with Bernie and yet a few of his actions make me cringe. I will add more in the comment section. … Continue reading →
I was a little bored so while surfing the net I came across this article concerning comments by Director of the CIA John Brennan. Needless to say it brought to mind the old saying…… “Bullshit baffles Brains”. I will provide the link and a few of my own comments below.
Due to the ongoing problems with the present site I will add to this more in the comment section.. The gist of the article is the unmentioned high levels of lead poisoning that go unannounced. It is a result of investigating by a team from Reuters. I would appreciate any comments to stick to the article. PS. I wonder if the multiple warnings that pop up after attempting to post a new thread inhibits participation. I am patient and wait for the post to actually show up. … Continue reading →
I’m a bit busy but I have one juicy morsel to get things going. I will add it in the comment section.
It starts at 8:00 PM eastern. https://ourrevolution.com/ Just to add. Keith faces a difficult task in being the new head of DNC. http://www.politico.com/story/2016/12/keith-ellison-democratic-dnc-232613 This seems to me that the deck is stacked against Keith’s chances. The Clintons and their supporters will not give up the ship without a (less than clean) fight. http://downwithtyranny.blogspot.ca/2016/12/these-are-fake-parties-or-heres-who.html In most of the developed world, the leaders of a political party are elected by the voters in that party, not party insiders. For example, in the U.K. in 2015, Jeremy Corbyn was elected leader of the Labour Party — not Prime Minister, … Continue reading →
The remnants of Clinton world ….DNC ….Moderates….Dinos…. Establishment….1% are not going to give up without a fight. They have held power for TOO long. It is starting with the now purist idea that the chair of the DNC should be a Full time job. But It was certainly not an issue when dear Debbie was in charge since 2008. A parting shot was launched by Howard Dean as he quit the leadership contest. http://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/news/308547-dean-drops-out-of-dnc-chairmanship-race Dean did not say whom he would support. But he said the chairmanship must be a full-time job, a hurdle to Ellison’s bid. “I know … Continue reading →
