Breaking News:  Stockholm Syndrome Alive and Well in the South

Unlike their Republican counterparts, “African” American Democrat voters appear content with being fooled again.  In South Carolina,  Hillary Clinton won with 74% of the vote  to Bernie Sanders’ 26%.  Impossible if not for the overwhelming support from the aged (and apparently senile) Black community.  Clinton captured 90% of the 65 and above crowd,  while Bernie dominated with Blacks and Whites 29 and younger.

While stumping in Black churches across the South, Clinton promised to refinance student debt at lower interest rates and cap the length of time a loan must be paid at 20 years.  She also promised to “take on systemic racism, target communities of color for more economic assistance, get back to the economic policies that worked when my husband was President; when everybody’s income went up and up – the middle, the  working folks, the poor people.   And we’re going to reform the criminal justice system and make sure that it protects people, not harasses and even kills people in the process of policing.  And we’re going after the epidemic of gun violence; on average 90 people per day die from guns.  Did you know that gun violence is the #1 cause of death among young African-American men?”  I think they knew Hillary, they knew.  The question is when did you know?  When your speech writer handed you your script?  As a result of Clinton’s blandering (Black pandering), she was awarded victories in Massachusetts, Arkansas, Tennessee, Virginia, Texas, Georgia, and Alabama.  Bernie  Sanders won Colorado, Minnesota, Oklahoma and Vermont.

But, buyer beware.  With Clinton, you may actually get what the big banks paid for:    http://www.theatlantic.com/politics/archive/2015/07/hillary-helps-a-bankand-then-it-pays-bill-15-million-in-speaking-fees/400067/  .   http://news.yahoo.com/belgium-charges-swiss-bank-ubs-104018855.html    Should not our President have scruples?  How about integrity?  What makes her acceptable now, but not in 2008?    The Clinton candidacy promises a continuation of the Obama policies.  Lets not forget, Obama  did not prosecute anyone in the financial industry for their shady dealings that led to economic disaster.  He rewarded them by using our tax money to bail them out…  Did you know Chelsea Clinton is a hedge fund manager?   http://www.nbcnews.com/id/15549672/ns/business-us_business/t/chelsea-clinton-joins-new-york-hedge-fund/   Curiouser and curiouser…

The Clinton campaign artfully smears Bernie Sanders by accusing him of having policy ideas that are fantastical and cannot be passed in “the real world”.  Well Hillary, if you reach for the stars, you may get the moon.  But if you reach for the moon…    Now is the time to WAKE UP BLACK PEOPLE!!  If not, well, here’s to the new boss.  Same as the old boss.  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NIHJ9RMAVGI

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.

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?
