The political immaturity of remarks like "Hillary is a Republican"

worries me because I believe due to naivete and immaturity, many will have the attitude of "I will take my ball and go home if I dont get my way".

Some Hillary supporters may decide to do this, but many more Bernie supporters seem to be willing to do this already.

Not only do we need all of us but we need more than us, we need folks out there who arent excited about it, to get excited.

Cant do that if Hillary is the nominee, you say?

Bullshit, you can do that if you stop attacking her, you can actually build an excitement for her for several reasons.

Here is my promise, I will vote for whoever it is I want in the primary, but then I will pivot like a ballet dancer doing "The Nutcracker" if my choice loses.

Now get excited, stay excited, and beat those god damn rightwingers!






p.s. for the record, I am a supporter of Bernie Sanders.

Listening to Laura Ingraham or a clip of her attacking Hillary

and supporting Bernie, pretty much.

Calling her a "damsel in distress"

A bunch of real ugly shit, and says she sees why women prefer Bernie or something.

Seems like a clear attempt to influence voting in the democratic party.

VICE on HBO "Fighting ISIS" (This is a must see)

The take away from this is two fold:

1. We cant win, it is a lose lose no matter what we do, including if we do nothing.

2. Of course the blame goes to W and Cheney for this absolute nightmare, but in 2010 the Obama administration decision to stick with Maliki was problematic, to say the least.
