The Face of Revolution?

bernie2 Yup.

The roof, the roof is apparently on fire. Well, we don’t need no water… we’ve got Bernie.  Bernie baby, Bernie!  The self proclaimed Socialist is giving the Democratic debutante a run for her (or should I say the big bank’s) money.  Free from the shackles of corporate sponsorship, the Sanders campaign is being carried by an enthusiastic grass-roots movement, spawning spry, if not rich, individual donors.  So sprightly in fact, that his campaign recently broke Pres. Obama’s fundraising record – 2.3 million individual donations to Pres. Obama’s 2.2 million by the end of the year.  The majority were small donations with the average donation at $25.00.  He is close to, and is expected to surpass Hillary Clinton’s $29 million fundraising effort by the end of this quarter.  Should she be concerned?  Yup.

Not only in money but support as well, Sanders has closed in if not surpassed Clinton in Iowa and New Hampshire respectively.  If not already blinded by the prospect of having a vagina as president https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BHJEtTZJ9rY , supporting Sanders should not be a difficult decision. After all, a Socialist by any other name is a Democrat.  He appears to be concerned with the same issues as the majority of the Liberal base; channeling an older, whiter, Elizabeth Warren*.  Could that be the reason the Democratic Party recently blocked the Sanders campaign from its own donor information; a way to slow down his momentum – especially in Iowa? – with the caucus right around the corner?  Within the realm of possibility?  Yup.

Hillary Clinton’s Hillary moment: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mByd4TCoWao .

I rest my case.

* Where the hell is she anyway and what the fuck was that meeting about between her and Hillary Clinton right around the time Clinton announced her Presidential bid and why was Warren the only no-show at the Clinton fundraiser where the other 13 female Democratic senators showed up to support her and why is she not supporting Bernie Sanders anyway?

Next Step: Occupy Politics

The Occupy Wall Street movement, and all the other Occupy movements inspired by it, have had incredible  success in changing the political conversation both here in the United States and abroad.  Unfortunately, we Americans are a fickle bunch.  The movement may be losing it’s romance in the eyes of the general populous.  It is time for a change in tactics.  It is time to “Occupy Cyberspace”.

This is a call for all members and true believers in the  Occupy movement to come together in one location.  We need a definitive number  to represent the strength of the movement.  We need to form a unifying body to represent all of our voices, our desires to make the United States of America great again; to balance the playing field; to secure a promising future for our children and grandchildren:  the United Occupy Party!

Show your support!  Goto:  Change.org and sign the petition.  We can do this, one signature at time!   – United we stand, divided we crawl.

Politics = Kryptonite

Super Committee: Fails

Once again, when it comes to the classic battle between politics and morality,  politics wins.  Apparently, negotiations within the Joint Committee on Deficit Reduction have once again reached an impasse.  It seems that pesky pledge to that “random person” (per John Bohner), Grover Norquist, is once again the wet paper bag the Republicans can’t fight their way out of.  The Democrats, on the other hand, were perhaps lucky not to have come to an agreement.  This would have meant agreeing to major cuts in social programs (something the Democrats seem to think 70% of the American people want – not).

Could it Be?

She has my vote.

All Eyes on Ohio

      Critical count taking place in Ohio tonight.  The anti-union SB5 Government Union Law ” Issue 2″ is being decided.  With 9% of the votes counted, so far it looks like victory for the 99%. @ 63% – no / 37% – yes, things are looking good.

         This vote is being looked upon as critical as it will show the other Republican states’ governors that they have overreached with their radical right wing agenda and the 99% have awoke and are fighting back.
