About Me

I am a disgruntled former DU member. Most people here are fine, but the site is ruined by zealous Hillary supporters. DU took my money and put my account on everlasting review. Cowards. Dishonest cowards.

Why am I a hateful neanderthal?

I support Bernie Sanders. Therefore, I yell at children, make harrassing phone calls, threaten to kill super delegates, etc. I can't remember doing any of these things, but they are happening, and Sanders supporters (aka Bernie Bros) are credited with everything bad that happens, plus a few things that didn't happen. God, what a bunch of socialist creeps we are!

Lesser of two evils poll

OK, Sanders insulted Clinton by suggesting she is the lesser of two evils, or at least many people see her that way because she has high negatives in polls. How does this strike you?

Please ask the hosts to stop locking things as off topic.

Some of the hosts are locking GD threads if they have any vague connection to the primaries, even though they are not about the primaries. Yes, everything is connected to everything else, but some of the hosts are locking GD threads if the names of Sanders or Clinton appear in the OP. A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of small minds, and all that. Thank you.

Fear of a violent convention

In 1968, the Democratic convention was a chaotic free-for-all. There was violence in the streets, and some pushing and shoving on the convention floor. Our party leadership seems worried that Sanders supporters might attend the convention with the intent to "start something." This is why the chair throwing, or non chair throwing, is such a big deal right now. The DNC wants everything to go smoothly, but it doesn't seem likely. There are going to be some people very, very upset about Clinton getting the nomination, and handling dissent and protest isn't something our party leaders enjoy. So far, they have shown little interest in hearing the criticisms, not just from Sanders supporters now, but from unhappy Democrats over the past 30 years. If all the pent-up frustration boils over at the convention, we could have a replay of 1968.

Abortion right question for Clinton supporters

Here is something I saw in the Hillary group.

I will continue to be loud, rude and bitchy until every woman in this country has access to contraception and abortion rights. And I will bitch until that is a reality. HILLARY 2016!

I understand Clinton supports a ban on third trimester abortions. Is this adequate support for abortion rights? Your thoughts?

Is this about the primaries?

I don't know. It wasn't about the general election, as I thought. Maybe it belongs here.

I hope Hillary Clinton wins, and I hope every last Democrat, right down to the sleaziest corporatist turncoat bastard, wins as well. If they don't, Bernie Sanders will get the blame, just as Ralph Nader got the blame.

This article purports to explain how the Democrats failed to stop a right wing nominee for the state supreme court because Sanders supporters just voted for Sanders and left the rest of the ballot blank. It amazes me how Bernie has the effect of making good, sensible Democrats suddenly lose their minds and ignore everything on the ballot but his name. He must have some kind of mind control going on. Secret brain waves broadcast from the mother ship? He made hoards of Democrats ignore down ballot candidates and issues.

Just as Nader made Democrats lose their minds and vote for him. I guess he is to blame for all the other Democrats who voted for Bush, also. Might as well blame him for the whole thing. No sense blaming our party for offering us Tweedle Dee and then following up with Tweedle Dum.

So get out there and vote for every Democrat you can, regardless of how far down the ballot you have to go, and without any respect to the fact that some of them are as bad or worse than the Republican candidates. Hold your nose, close your eyes, take a deep breath, and do what has to be done.

How will the blaming go?

Progressive candidates abound in Oregon primaries.

Watching TV ads for the primaries in Oregon means being bombarded by the term "progressive" over and over again. They are not afraid of the P word here. One Portland mayoral candidate is openly gay, and his TV ad shows he and his partner walking their dogs around the neighborhood. Oregon is very different than other places, and the primaries here are just as different from the primaries in other states. Not all other states, but most.
