Why Does Debbie Wasserman Schultz Hate Democracy?

That can be the only reason she deviously rigged the meaningless Washington state primary so that Clinton could win, with exactly zero impact on the delegate math*.

At least Clinton isn't whimpering about "the unfairness of it all" like Sanders does. Though he got 46% of the vote to her 54% of the vote, he gets 74 delegates to her 25. No matter, he isn't going to be the Democratic party nominee. Not going to happen. Read more about Why Does Debbie Wasserman Schultz Hate Democracy?

HAWB 1870s - American producer class hero Peter Cooper - How America Was Built

Thread: 

I suppose some words of introduction are in order. Around the end of 2014, I conceived the idea of compiling a chronological history of how the USA economy had actually been built, highlighting the role of government in nurturing and promoting science and technology in industry, agriculture, and transportation. This would, of course, directly repudiate the right-wing myths of heroic entrepreneurs as "wealth creators" in a "free market" liberated from the deadening hand of government.

It is primer than prime and the basis for most other calculations of interest rates, the amount charged to purchase money, throughout the global economy. Read more about The End Of The World

Bernie and the Democratic party

There is still time to nominate Bernie. The US Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, California, NJ, Montana, NM, SD, ND, and Washington DC have yet to hold their primaries. Bernie would need a commanding lead in them to catch Hillary, but the possibility is there. Bernie knows what his tracking polls look like, more importantly, he knows what his phone bank results look like. The Bernie phone bank is tied directly into his database, so he knows how many calls are being made, where those calls are going, and what the results look like, and his team knows this in real time.

Concern trolls for Hillary Clinton

So Joshua Micah Marshall has joined Kevin Drum and Paul Krugman in attacking Bernie for not giving up before his strongest states are due to vote, and for misleading people to think that the United States could ever have single payer health care, free university education, and double social security benefits, or do anything other than start wars and conduct surveillance on its own people.

The war party

The Coming Democratic Crackup

But a President Clinton’s transformation of the Democratic Party into “an aggressive war party,” whereas under President Barack Obama it has been “a reluctant war party,” would force principled anti-war Democrats to stop making excuses and to start trying to expel Clinton’s neocon pro-war attitudes from the party.

Time for Doug McMillon to show some leadership

Thread: 

Kick the Poors

Republicans controlling the House are proposing $23 billion worth of food stamp cuts over the coming decade.
