You have to credit him for evolving his nuclear action.

His position on nuclear changed from this action in 1996 to urging Obama "to declare a nuclear moratorium" in 2011. It looks to me like the more information he had on the subject, the more he was able to change his mind to work for a safer, nuclear-free world for everyone.

I congratulate him for opening his mind to enlightenment. That's the kind of president I want.

I miss the unrec button, too.

But if we're keeping the jury system, I like your suggestions that the juries not be anonymous. I'd also like to make it a requirement that jurors comment on their decisions. Under the moderator system, there was discussion among the mods. People had to give reasons, within the mod group, why they believed strongly one way or another that a post should be hidden. I sit on a lot of juries, and while some alerts are spurious, I try to comment on each alert. I think the alerter deserves to know why I agree or disagree with their alert. Really, it's just common courtesy. And it would add to transparency.

The problem with this analysis is it assumes independent voters in Mass are conservative.

This is wrong. Some of the most liberal places in Massachusetts are in the Western part of the state: the five college towns of Northampton, Amherst, and South Hadley all went to Bernie, for instance. The artist communities in the Berkshires mostly went Bernie. The places that didn't go Bernie? The richest parts of the state. So don't tell me we're all Republicans west of Weston. The Republicans who make this part of the state conservative didn't vote in the Democratic primary. The poor artists and students and teachers and professors did. And we voted for Bernie.

Just need to thank this group for being a light of sanity and hope in a sea of DNC despair.

The indoctrinated DNC on here and elsewhere online are sucking the life out of me. Trying to hold Clinton accountable for anything she's done or supported in the last 35 years equals insulting a demigod to them, they go into immediate attack mode. I've been censored. I've been verbally abused. My Democratic loyalties are called into question. I've been called rude for posting civil dissent. It's walk in lockstep with them or STFU.

Anyway.

Deep breathe.

I'm glad you folks are here. You are my tribe.
