The Theory of Parallel Universe - Documentary

Hillary borrowed from Sanders, Sanders borrowed from Hillary on Education Plans

Can we just be glad both Hillary and Sanders were able to take good things from each-other? Why is there constantly all this division around here? This was a bill put together by many people including Elizabeth Warren not just Bernie Sanders. Yes it borrowed ideas from Hillary's plan and Hillary borrowed ideas from Sanders plan when she put hers out.

Snip>Senator Bernie Sanders stepped into that breach Monday afternoon, introducing a bill with Senator Elizabeth Warren, Representative Keith Ellison, and several other members of Congress. The College for All Act aims to eliminate tuition and fees at public four-year colleges and universities for students from families that make up to $125,000 per year. The bill would make community college tuition-free for all income levels.

Snip> When Clinton released an updated tuition plan after the primary was over, it borrowed many of Sanders’s subsidized-tuition elements, but also had a $125,000 income threshold. This is essentially what Sanders is now proposing, though Clinton’s proposal made the initial cutoff $85,000 per year and raised it incrementally to $125,000. The College for All Act starts at $125,000 outright. (This is similar to a plan New York Governor Andrew Cuomo introduced this year, which Sanders also backed.)


Two year old girl defends her choice of doll to cashier: She is a pretty girl, I am a pretty girl

SOUTH CAROLINA — When 2-year-old Sophia was told she could pick out a prize for finishing her potty training, she knew just what she wanted.

She and her mother, Brandi Benner, visited a Target near their South Carolina home, where Sophia spent 20 minutes looking at all the dolls in the toy aisle.

“She kept going back to the doctor doll, because in her mind, she is already a doctor,” Benner said. “She loves giving checkups, and if you come in the house, she’ll tell you that’s the first thing you need.”

Sophia, who will be 3 in July, was so excited by her choice that she wouldn’t let go of her new doll until they reached the register to check out.

Did we mention that the doll is black and Sophia is white?

I remember seeing people in comment sections in various news sites pointing out Russian trolls

as far back as several years ago. DU seemed to be very aware of them too well before the election heated up. I would see people say "He's a Russian troll" and I never knew if they were just pulling that out of their ass or what. Thinking back tonight got me wondering how so many people on-line knew all these Russian trolls were out there several years ago. Well before Samantha Bee or other news organizations started to mention them. Were there other sources talking about this or were there US intelligence folks in the comment sections warning about the Russian trolls?

Anyone else remember seeing stuff like this several years ago?

On Edit: Youtube was also a hotbed for this! People would say "This video is Russian Propaganda and it's filled with Russian trolls." I will say that when I saw that I looked at the video's differently. I know Russia was majorly involved in Syria War propaganda and their "Fight" against ISIS. They won over a huge number of Republicans with their anti ISIS YouTube propaganda. Don't know how many times I saw people on those videos rip on Obama and talk about how amazing Putin was and how weak Obama was toward ISIS. I knew that shit was BS. It smelled to high heaven but Republicans were eating it up.

I found this video in 10 seconds and the comments are filled with people talking about how awesome Trump and Putin will be against ISIS:

What is Adam Schiff's record like?

Is he someone we should be considering as a candidate for 2020? He really has great stage presence but I don't know a thing about him.

It might be better for the investigation to drag out and not be resolved quickly

If we are still talking about this right before the midterms and indictments start getting handed down then! Now there you have a perfect storm for Dems to take back control of Congress and maybe more.
