My meanderings about politics, space exploration, cars, cats, tech things and whatever else strikes my fancy. To the current occupant of the White House, we will not be taken into war on anyone's leash.
I hope that this does not make me seem like a disloyal Democrat but I see Harry Reid and Mitch McConnell in the same light. Harry Reid is a consummate politician and as such will say and do whatever is expedient. I know we’re supposed to lay off of Barney but Bernie needs to stop his nonstop interviews attacking the Democratic Party. He wasn’t a part of the democratic party until he decided to run for president. I’m sorry I will try to limit my Bernie Sanders posts to a minimum but if he gloats about winning some other caucus or primary before the end of this I don’t know if I’ll be able to hold back.

As a blogger it is unusual for me to be at the center or where news is being made. I had the honor of being invited to hear Hillary Clinton speak in front of a group of union workers in Commerce California period Commerce is industrial area a few miles outside of downtown Los Angeles. And yes Hillary was at her best. She spoke to the people about their problems and their needs. She explained in detail how her policies will help the middle class get its footing back.
She told the union workers that their numbers are no longer going to go down under a Hillary Clinton administration. She said the attack on the unions has to stop. I’ve gotta tell you that got the loudest shouts and Applause from the crowd. They started chanting Hillary Hillary Hillary. The media was there in large numbers and getting her message out to the rest of the people.
Samantha be like John Oliver is getting a reputation for being truthful about subjects. She is impartial and sometimes I don’t agree with her but I’ve never found her to be unfair. So she looked at the Nevada convention and she made the only logical conclusions that are to be made. Sanders supporters don’t follow the rules and get mad because they’re not very good at following rules. Oh I know I’ll hear people telling me well the rules are made to be changed. Sure but not in the middle of the game. That’s called cheating. AVB
Trump fuels Democratic voter surge and Republicans are seeing very modest new voter registration numbers. In the swing States they are only looking at 6% increases over previous Republican registration particularly in swing States. The reason the numbers of people coming out to vote in the Republican primaries are not first time voters would rather regular Republican voters that don’t vote in the primary. So all the hand-wringing that one hears over the lack of enthusiasm in the Democratic ranks is going to be history when Trump is on the November ballot. The 6% increase of Republican voters that are new to the system in swing States would not be able to win the election for the Republicans because Democrats won by more than that.

There are few people that’s annoying me more than Cornel West. He attacks President Obama left and right even though he claims to be a African American activist. He calls every one brother and sister. That’s one of Bernie Sanders brilliant choices for the platform committee. Next comes James Zogby a pro-palestinian activist. He’s figuring out the best way for the Democrats to be defeated by alienating African Americans who support President Obama and the Jewish vote that supports Israel. I know platforms don’t have a lot of say on how the president elected on it behave. But this is going to be a great weapon for Trump to be using for the next 5 months. We might as well have a communist on the platform committee and just put some Nails into the coffin of the democratic chances to win the White House this year and for that matter the Senate. I think that Bernie Sanders is trying to destroy the Democratic Party from within. He is no Democrat

There is no better Measure of a Man then how he can laugh at himself. Donald Trump was humorless throughout Seth Meyers roast. Don’t trust people without a sense of humor and there is one thing that I can say about Donald Trump is that he has not proved to have a sense of humor throughout this campaign. AVB
Now the Sanders supporters are looking like spoiled brats. How do they think they have a case to sue in order to extend something that they should have done when they turned 18. I know I voted when I was 18 and registered on the day after my birthday. I guess the rules don’t mean much to them. This is been a pattern that has been a Hallmark of the Sanders supporters. Now they say that they did so for the extension but it was Hillary Clinton supporters that did. They lie continuously and it’s getting old.
