Just remember one basic fact folks....

One does not steal elections in order to do GOOD things once in office.

The most accurate poll in elections is the exit poll

The exit poll showed a 4% spread. That would have been a huge loss for the establishment. I hope Team Bernie is collecting all the evidence and will use it to swing delegates at the convention. I no longer wish to be living under machine politics. END CLINTONISM NOW!

Bernie Sanders-inspired music festival to take place in California

Bernie Sanders-inspired music festival to take place in California

Washington (CNN)New music festivals across the country will soon have floral headbands and flash tattoos alongside campaign buttons.

Bernie Sanders backers are set to gather on April 21 and 22 -- before the second weekend of the music and arts festival Cochella -- for what they're calling "Berniechella," a free event in Old Town Coachella, California, according to the event's Facebook page.

Artists set to perform include Alex Ebert, lead singer of Edward Sharpe and the Magnetic Zeros, DJ Shepard Fairey and the band Ozomatli, among others.

"It's a party of people who are in support of a particular candidate," event organizer Tizoc DeAztlan told The Desert Sun.

Why do people here engage with obvious trolls?

It is infuriating to watch important threads become derailed because "Bernie supporters" MUST engage with every trolls that crawls out from under a rock.

Why?

If you know by their posts that they are a troll/campaign operative, why engage?


My suspicion is that Bernie supporters who continue to engage with known trolls, are likely working with the troll to derail important discussions.

Terrific, diverse, long form news reports on Al Jazeera - Live Stream

I highly recommend it to anyone with an interest in international, in depth reporting. YouTube is replacing the cable pablum. Old media is going to be extinct soon.
