I've seen repeated OP's about starting third prates or going third party

I would like a clarification about third party advocacy. There have been alerts, but they tend to be allowed to stay.

The Republican Clerk Who Wiped Thousands From The NY Rolls Just Got Very Bad News

The Republican Clerk Who Wiped Thousands From The NY Rolls Just Got Very Bad News
The board may fire her as soon as Tuesday, and the New York Daily News reported that colleagues said she is being “forced out.”

Now I am sure that all those wild accusations of voter fraud in New York will be recanted.

The Many U.S. Presidents Before George Washington.

The Many U.S. Presidents Before George Washington.
Schools in the United States teach children from an early age that the first president of the United States was George Washington. But teachers often forget to mention a small, kind of important detail- George Washington was the first U.S. president under the current United States Constitution, but he wasn’t the country’s first president.

Before the U.S. Constitution came into being, the Articles of Confederation served as the glue which held all thirteen states together as a single country. (See: The Articles of Confederation: The Constitution Before the Constitution) The Articles went into effect in 1781, and they established a loose alliance among the states. The Articles also defined the role of Congress to oversee the national needs, as well as the office of the president.

Due to the fear of giving too much power to one person, the office of president was extremely limited in power and scope, and was not even a paid position. Rather, the primary roles of the president at this time were simply to preside over meetings and handle various state correspondence. The president was also the one who signed official congressional documents.

A good introduction to a part of our history that we don't teach or talk about.

Other than revoke "Obamacare" vs Improve the ACA, what will be the issues between Clinton V Trump?

They are close to opposites on everything.
My crystal ball does not see the issues all that well.

MSNBC projects Clinton has won at over 10%...

So watch that margin.

Claim that some of Sanders votes changed to Clinton Votes is proved false by Snopes.

The hoax article appears to legitimately originate with the Huffington Post:

The Plan to Make California Wet By Spreading Beavers Up and Down the State

The Plan to Make California Wet By Spreading Beavers Up and Down the State
Ending the drought in the West will require rain—not too much rain—and smarter ways to collect and store that water. But something else that can keep things moist? Believe it or not: Beavers.

According to a story in Water Deeply, a group of ecologists have a plan to help repopulate the Central Coast of California with Castor canadensis, the large beavers which once roamed the state in great numbers. (Not to be confused with their ancestors, giant beavers that were seven feet long.) The idea is that beavers are nature’s hydrologists, engineering the way that water travels through the landscape:

Bringing back the Beaver would be welcomed in California.

I am so tired of the Scobby doo argument by those

Upset that Sanders is losing.

"And we would have won the nomination if it weren't for you meddling Southern voters."

A new wave of arguments about why the South/Red States/none relevant to the GE states, and other code words for black Voters has set GD-P on fire.

Time to put it back in the trash.
