    It's made me mad because I am a senior citizen who has voted a straight Dem ticket in every election since Carter. I'm even one of those people that show up at mid-terms and special elections.

    But now I realize they were correct.

    I believe in a living wage.
    I believe in healthcare for all.
    I believe that jobs should stay in the US & that pride in America means investing in its citizens, even if that means smaller profits for businesses.
    I believe that nurturing our planet instead of tearing it apart should be a top priority.

    Since the Democratic Party does not believe in these ...

    And that hasn't happened. Furthermore, she has to stay out of disgrace until Election Day...fat chance of that!

    It's a dangerous, risky game in play. Many of the players are either crooked, psychotic, or insane, or all of the above, which makes it more challenging. But I don't think Obama wants to spend his retirement at Club Fed, and I don't think anyone gives a care where Hillary ends up.

    The steps must be taken, one at a time, in chronological order. It is not time to panic, not even close.

    Do not give up the ship. Your Captain Sanders hasn't given the word yet. ...

    Today, the police officer that drove the van that resulted in Freddy Gray’s death was found not guilty. There had been accusations of a practice known as the “rough ride”, that is when transporting a person to jail to swerve, hit speedbumps at high speeds and just make it as uncomfortable and damaging as possible in the back of the van.

    “Gray was unbuckled, handcuffed, placed in leg shackles and driven around West Baltimore for about 45 minutes before he was found unconscious and not breathing in the back of the van when it arrived at the Western District police station.” Baltimore Sun Jan. 6, 2016

    This is a travesty, ...

    We passed 100,000 posts today, in the sixth month of our existence. Almost a year since Mary contacted me after Jackpine Radical (Jim Peterson), her original partner in Web crime, passed on before realizing their goal of a web forum that cultivated Democratic ideals.

    100,000 posts. That blows my mind. Yes, I can hear you say, a very-low bar. Granted, but it should count for something.

    I was going to write some grandiose and sweeping crap, but I'll spare you all from that pain, and keep it simple. Also I need to get to sleep, I have a meeting in the morning, so simple helps.

    100,000 isn't a lot compared ...

    It happened before when Bush stole the 2000 and 2004 elections. The lie was accepted and the results of that acceptance have been catastrophic.

    SHE did not win the nomination.

    I will keep repeating this as often as necessary.

    Once they knew she could not win enough delegates through the Primary Process, the 'gloves came off' and those who control our elections had had enough. She said that herself I believe back in March when she intended to END the troublesome Democratic Process back then so they could quickly get to the Hillary/Donald Show.

    But that didn't work out for them then. ...

    Unlike certain other sites, we at Jackpine Radicals believe in making things easy to read. Not only is brevity good form; it's also necessary to keep you Proles awake and engaged. The drooling that begins after you laboriously work your way through the third or fourth sentence does not reflect well on our party! Not as bad as those unsightly families that we've made homeless, but still...

    So instead of writing a long and tedious statement of our terms of service, we will say the exact same thing that similar sites say, but in a Prole-friendly package. Sort of like when Rabbi Hillel summarized Jewish law:

    "That ...

    This political season has been one of the strangest ones of my lifetime. In the end, it appears to possibly boil down to the two most hated(unfavorable) candidates. I keep asking myself "What?". I don't think it's ever happened to have two candidates with such high unfavorability ratings (Trump-70%, HRC-60%) to make it this far. How could this possibly happen? It's actually quite sickening. And odds are this will election will have the lowest turnout ever. We, as a country, appear to be quite stupid.

    And then our whole election process. Filled with corruption, fraud, and inconsistencies. Different rules for different ...

    SHE has purchased the phrase presumptive nominee from all of the world's major media - SHE owns it, a WOMAN, and you can't deal with it!!! So you LASH OUT at WOMEN and MINORITIES by posting information about HER!!!

    INFORMATION!!! I thought I'd NEVER see the day when a Democrat would post information!!! Outrageous!!!

    Facts LIE!!! For example, on this site - ON THIS VERY SITE - I read that the odds of HER winning without widespread fraud are 1 in 77 billion!!! As if the person who posted that didn't know that an alternative analysis by Goldman Sachs found that the odds were only 1.6 billion to one!!!
