Well, we see what the conservadems have in store for us down the line. And what an awesome response to Roy!

While there is still hope if Bernie is the next Presidential candidate.

Here is a recent post from Caitlin.

The oldest political party in the world has died. It doesn’t know it yet, it isn’t acting like it yet, but it is dead. By successfully getting the DNC fraud lawsuit dismissed by Judge William J. Zloch today, the Democratic party has succeeded in killing any argument for its continued existence as a legitimate political party.

The premise of the DNC fraud lawsuit was simple: the Democratic National Committee promised voters an impartial party primary, and in 2016 it did not deliver them what it promised. By taking donations from people who believed its promise of impartiality, it committed fraud, in the same way a company selling a product labeled “sugar free” would be committing fraud if its product was loaded with maple syrup.

Article 5, Section 4 of the DNC Charter, also known as the Impartiality Clause, reads as follows:

“the Chairperson shall exercise impartiality and evenhandedness as between the Presidential candidates and campaigns. The Chairperson shall be responsible for ensuring that the national officers and staff of the Democratic National Committee maintain impartiality and evenhandedness during the Democratic Party Presidential nominating process.”

Documents released by WikiLeaks such as the conversations in the more egregious DNC emails, the Podesta emails showing that the DNC and the Clinton camp were colluding as early as 2014 to schedule debates and primaries in a way that favored her, then-DNC Vice Chairwoman Donna Brazile acting as a mole against the Sanders campaign and passing Clinton questions in advance to prep her for debates with Sanders all demonstrate a clear and undeniable violation of the Impartiality Clause.

The DNC Charter was revised with this promise to the American people in order to prevent a DemExit after the 1968 fiasco in Chicago, and in 2016 they undeniably broke this promise.

If the diarist agrees a suggestion…

If you aren’t able to put the paragraph quotes in block-quotes, I would be willing to do that to make the diary easier to read.

Otherwise, the response is very good.

Oy! This doesn’t look very good!

I don’t think that this used to be a river.

Houston is now the latest disaster — in the US

There is a thinker who lives in Houston who says that we have already

From an article in Houston Chronically about Tim Morton

Given this perspective, Morton has become one of the planets leading tour guides of the Anthropocene, which he and other new age thinkers now call the epoch they say has replaced the more hospitable Holocene, during which we and all the other inhabitants of Earth enjoyed a stable, relatively temperate environment for 12,000 years, before global warming ended all that by the start of the 231st century. The term Anthropocene, Blasdel explains, comes from the ancient Greek word anthropos, meaning “human,” making the Anthropocene an epoch in which humans are the driving actors, creating all the problems. Blasdel goes on:

As global warming and other features of the Anthropocene intensify, our experience of this grave new age is bound to become ever weirder and more fraught. When that happens, more and more people are likely to seek out writings – such as Morton’s – that echo their experiences of alienation, as well as their yearning for hope. Some other thinkers seem to believe we can tidy up the world if we just have better, more logical, more rigorous ideas. Morton says we can tidy up our ideas all we want, but the world is going to remain a fundamentally messy place that will always resist our philosophical decluttering. What we need to do instead is get comfortable with this weirdness. During one of our earliest conversations, I told Morton I appreciated his work, to the extent I thought I understood it. “I think I understand it too, sometimes,” he replied

The inner quote is from the Long Read article in The Guardian. Links to Houston paper and a couple of Gardian articles are in this long comment at caucus99percent. I put there because there may be a few more people who will see it.

I often bring philosophers into my comments, but this is the first time I have mentioned Tim

This is worth viewing.

Who is Roy Delfino and why should I give a flying crap about what he says? LOL

Roy Delfino is a Bernie-hater who writes stupid shitty articles. Here’s one: https://medium.com/@RoyDelfino/ten-reasons-why-bernie-sanders-must-be-stopped-5e0f31a37c67

It will bring you right back to the best (cough cough) days of the Daily Kos post-Ides of March.

Jimmy Dore is not impressed with Nancy Pelosi to say the least.

Unfortunately it is likely to get worse!

This article explains some of Houston’s Problems.

It helps to explain the current situation.

It is very informative and is worth reading.
