I’m watching, I’m watching…(wasn’t sure that was going to happen)

But so far, this is the 4th time I’ve had to log in to TPW today. Not sure what’s up with that.

Big cheers for Ben Jealous when he mentions Bernie Sanders. However, very loud boos (and cheers) when he mentions electing Hillary Clinton.

Brother Jealous is a powerful speaker.

I wish he wouldn’t ask for money right now for his new PACs. It’s not the right time.

Benny

Vote voice on platform …TPP signs waving. NO the ayes did not have it!

Unbelievable.

“Hillary Clinton has dedicated her life to public service.” No she hasn’t… this convention is Orwellian.

Benny

“Hillary Clinton is our answer to intolerance and fear” said the speaker of the ORE St House.

So much that the DNC thumbed the scales for her campaign? And her GE campaign is about fear, just like Trump’s.

The most common theme I have heard again, and again, and again is to vote for Hillary because otherwise Trump might win. That is not Democracy. That is coercion. This whole convention is about coercion.

It’s time the Bernie delegates walked.

And that is precisely why I am not tuned in to watch this sad spectacle they call a “convention”.

Who are these people? I do not recognize even one person up there right now.

Are you kidding Camp HC? Bernie is supposed to do your work for you? Lazy as Lazy Trump.

grapevines

Nightly Business Report on PBS reported that Bernie has been tweeting his delegates all day to do him the personal favor of not boo-ing HRC every time her name is mentioned. I imagine that is at the HRC Camps request

BS on these labor “leaders.” This is hard to watch, i might leave it on in the background and get some more done.

polarbear4

Cheers don’t really sound that loud.

The sound has gone fuzzy for me. Has that been the case for you? I can barely hear anything from the audience most of the time.

polarbear4

i’m thinking maybe there’s not much enthusiasm.

Oh, they’re messing it with it. They turned it up for the “Dean Scream” they can turn it down to muffle the angry peasants.

If Hillary has always been for working people, why did she choose a VP who had been speaking positively of the TPP as recent as last Thursdays? Why did she choose a VP who supported right to work laws? Why did she support NAFTA? Why did she support normalizing trade with China? Why did she support the Korea deal? Why does she still support both of these deals? Why did she refuse to directly say “I oppose the TPP” until October 6th 2016? Why did she support the TPP, tacitly or not, until mid 2015?

None of those deals were good for workers. None of those actions were good for workers. But somehow Hillary Clinton has become the equivalent of Jesus Christ of labor. What a joke.
