Absolutely incredible.

For those that didnt catch Rosario Dawson ripping The Hag to shreds, here it is: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G4sAWtGYP1s

In case anyone is not familiar with Dawson's story, check it out. She is a freakin champ, an incredible rags to riches story. Ive been a big fan of hers for a long time. Plus she is hot as hell :)

''Election Fraud Tied To Every Clinton Victory. Is Bernie Really Winning?'':

e tenebris, lux ...

Further proof on why I don't know why he attempted to straighten this beyond saving ship. Theres holes all over it, its 2/3 of the way under water, and there are nothing but icebergs ahead.

Bernie leading a 3rd party rebellion would have been historical. And instead of running as a presidential candidate, all look at me, run it just like he is, with the intent of creating a base for a "political revolution".. He doesnt need their money to do it, and he is beyond loved by 90% of activists being that he is one of less than a half a dozen out of 535 people that citizens respect.

It is what it is at this point. Hillary vs Trump will be interesting for sure.

I am still curious as to what the split is going to be of Bernie supporters going to Stein vs Clinton. Im guessing its around 20:1 with the lead going to the Hag.

Bernie did not attempt "to straighten this" Democrap "ship" .. as he looked to play The Final Card of his career to bring his Democratic Socialist message to The US 99% - imo! No one and maybe not even he, could've predicted just How Much traction & love, he & his message would get!! The Future 3rd AND 4th Party possibilities are NOT actually diminished by what Bernie chose to do .... indeed they are probably Enhanced - if you think about it!!!

I personally hope that when he comes to the point of no return - that both Bernie and The Berners head en masse either to a "99% Party" or Dr. Jill Stein & to The Green Party .. per Kshama Sawant's advice:

fiat lux ...

"Bernie Sanders is for me." Sarah Silverman's poignant video in support of Bernie.

And, agree re: Rosario Dawson. She is one fierce lady.

And I'm sure we can agree that Susan Sarandon is an astute and courageous young woman. She seems to adhere to the Bernie or Bust beliefs. Do you? Just wondering....

I agree with Sarandon. I also wish that everyone who thinks it's Bernie or Bust would work as hard as I have been since January to get this man elected. I think he has a real chance to win.

Why should people who want to advance our struggle emulate your efforts? Who are you to insinuate that your's are the most valuable? Why are those people who choose a different path, "suspect," and you are above being so? By saying that people should follow you, you belittle, or in effect negate their efforts. I would bet that much of the creative ways that people resist the current corrupt status quo, and the the steadfastness of their efforts never makes it to this forum.. And BTW, your self-aggrandizement is unbecoming, especially when you consider that we all have different personal circumstances that we have to deal with. Please if I ever inadvertently get that way, don't hesitate to give me hell!

That's the worst of my critique. Now the good. I do appreciate your contributions very much. Your posts have been very informative to me, and thought provoking.... inspiring even. You have softened my way of thinking, for the better. I admire your ardor. Thank You.

Finally, I too hope that Sanders wins too although I want him to embrace the better angels in our nature, more than he has. More importantly, I do not want the success or failure of our revolution to hinge on his winning or losing the nomination. And most importantly I do not want our struggle to be sucked into the Democratic Party, and that at least some of the fail-safes (i.e., Bernie or Bust) for that not to happen should be implemented now!

I'm not sure what you want. You want Bernie? You don't want Bernie? I know you want to be right and you want perfection. Sorry, I can't guarantee perfection nor can anyone else.

For me, I'm willing to do whatever it takes to improve the economic situation of the 99% within reason and I certainly think supporting Bernie Sanders is within reason.

I also think if a person wants Bernie to win, they better get to work because he's not getting ordained in case you haven't noticed. That is what I meant by what I said, I was not self-aggrandizing. Sad that you took it that way.

Just reread the last paragraph of my post to see what I "want." You have chosen your role in our revolution, and I respect that. Please do not think that my contributions to our struggle begins and ends with what I write about here. We can walk and chew gum at the same time. You do your thing. I'll do mine, and I do consider what I am doing here to lessen the chance of us being coopted (i.e., Bernie or Bust) and being one of the people who want Bernie to respond more forcefully to groups like AIPAC to be paramount.
