primary & things are about to take a turn in Bernie's direction. They've thrown everything at him, marginalized him as much as possible, yet he's still standing & he's done pretty well where he wasn't expected to. Hillary was always projected to win the Southern states.

This isn't over, like it or not.

The good congressman has Hedge Funds in the Cayman Islands while calling to investigations of those who use those loopholes.


It is pretty much over. Hillary will likely win PA and NY. Bernie would have to win the remaining states by with 60+% of the vote. And would have to win CA likely by more then 20 point likely not happening.

counts...none of which has one thing to do with Grayson, and don't even ask how the superdelegates are picked, I mean, Howard Dean is one & he's now a lobbyist....go figure...

Well...we'll see. It's not over, not yet.

Almost 700 pledged delegates are chosen on June 7 alone. It seems unlikely that either candidate will accumulate a margin of 700 pledged delegates before then. So this one may come down to the wire.

I would probably be the last American to use marijuana. Does not interest me at all. But. . . . we do not like the fact that our state laws which are relaxed about marijuana conflict with federal law and that if a president wanted to enforce the federal laws, it would cause a lot of problems for citizens of our states.

So that is why I say that the marijuana states like Colorado, Oregon and California are likely to go for Bernie who has said he would take marijuana off the controlled substances list. I would like to see the government perhaps put marijuana under FDA supervision and make sure that what people buy, especially for medicinal purposes meets some sort of common standard so that they know what they are getting.

As I said, this is not a personal issue for me because I have a spiritual practice that does not include marijuana.

Let the naysayers and those who would marginalize him be damned.

It's not over til it's over, not by a long shot.

was 2 individuals who left the fund and were reimbursed by Grayson... if my math serves me correctly that only leaves Grayson and his family trust as participants...just sayin'
