I woke up this morning aware of how Bernie is sounding a chord that more and more people are hearing. It’s a chord that hasn’t been heard in this country for a long, long time. It’s a chord that resonates in people’s subconscious and what they are hearing is a basic message that we need to take care of each other and the earth. Many older…[Read more]
I know I should know this, but I don’t. I’ve been trying to figure out for months now what T and R means. I’m sure I’ll feel foolish when I find out.
I wonder what the response would be if Bernie, or another candidate, announced that if he wins the presidency heshe would arrest Trump and turn him over to the International Criminal Court for prosecution as a war criminal? It would certainly be sensational and perhaps very popular.
And how about amending the articles of impeachment to add a count of starting a war without congressional authorization?
Let’s not forget amid the euphoria the most amazing thing is the raising of all this money without taking even a dollar from the wealthiest one per cent. I don’t think we understand yet how significant it is.
For a newspaper to put the lid on a story is a big event in a newsroom. The bigger the story, the bigger the lid needed to contain it. I wonder what the reporters in the newsroom are thinking. I bet one thing they are wondering is how big a crowd do Bernie and AOC have to raise before the Times will allow them to cover it? Fifty thousand? One…[Read more]
We watched an excellent series on Netflix that digs right into the struggle of depression era radical farmers in Iowa. It’s called “Damnation.” I couldn’t believe Netflix would allow such a positive portrayal of angry collective solidarity to be shown, but there it is. It’s violent, outrageous and takes unexpected twists and turns. Reminded me…[Read more]
I scrolled through the LA Times earlier today and found not a single story about the enormous Bernie/AOC rally in Venice. Thousands of people turn out to see two of the most popular political leaders in this country and not a peep about it in the LA Times. Not a whisper. A big story right on their door step but they couldn’t find a way to cover…[Read more]
AOC told the crowd in Vegas she’s “dangerous.” That reminded me of this Peter Tosh song, “Walking Razor” which maybe Bernie and AOC will play when they take the stage. I tried to put a link to it here but I guess I’m just not tech savvy enough for that.
It seems to me Biden doesn’t even need to campaign. He could just sit home on his front porch like Warren Harding did. Biden is so popular, like Trump, that it doesn’t make any difference if he gaffes. Maybe the purpose of the little bit of campaigning he does is to generate gaffes so he gets publicity, like the kind that has been helping…[Read more]
Stub commented on the post, 12/13 TGIF Live Rally with Ilhan Omar & Bernie in Nashua; Afternoon/Evening OT 1 month ago
Corbyn backed down when faced with this kind of anti-semitism attack, but Bernie won’t back down. This is just the kind of smear that can incite Bernie’s anger and when he gets angry his honesty and sincerity have a way of moving people towards him. This could be like the time in ’96 I think it was when an opponent hired a private detective to…[Read more]
That’s a good question. It should be easy to compare one of those supposedly great union insurance policies to the Medicare already available. I find it hard to believe that any corporate insurance would provide superior coverage to Medicare. Where’s the proof? I wish Bernie would say something about this idea that corporate insurance…[Read more]
Wouldn’t it be amazing if the democrats ran a candidate who didn’t need someone else to tell him or her something was corrupt or not? Wouldn’t it be something if there was a candidate who could see corruption all on his or her own? Wouldn’t it be incredible if the democrats ran a candidate who nobody had to worry about whether they were corrupt…[Read more]
I went door to door for Bernie in NH in ’16 and it was an incredible experience. At the first door the person wanted to volunteer. At another home I was the main event of the day. The wife made coffee and they wanted to entertain me in their living room. Behind another door were two guys drinking beers and shots who told me they were “feeling…[Read more]
This is the first time I’ve seen Nina in this setting and I’m impressed. She’s smart and quick and democratic socialist to her bones. I’ve decided she’s my choice for Bernie to pick for his VP. She could campaign in the general on her own and draw large crowds. Being VP would put her in good position for a presidential run of her own after Bernie.
Assange is being held without charges against him, or at least that’s my understanding. So why hasn’t he, or someone on his behalf, in the UK filed for a writ of habeas corpus?
My Will is easy to decide,
For there is nothing to divide
My kin don’t need to fuss and moan–
Moss does not cling to a rolling stone
My body — Oh! — if I could choose
I would want to ashes it reduce
And let the merry breezes blow
My dust to where some flowers grow
Perhaps some fading flower then
Would come to life and bloom…[Read more]
This coup has been stirring random thoughts in my head. Che Guevara died in Bolivia in 1967 trying to organize a rebellion against Bolivia’s oligarchy. Wouldn’t it be historically amazing if the indigenous people of Bolivia raised up a new leader — a war chief like Che or Crazy Horse. It seems doubtful social media will play a role in the…[Read more]
