Neither Hillary Clinton or Donald Trump appeal to me.

What will thousands of Berniecrats do in November?

1) Write-in Bernie Sanders name in the November general election?
2) Protest the corruption of the Democratic and Republican parties, and cast a vote for the Greens presidential candidate?
3) Stay home?

I wish that Bernie had NOT run as a Democrat. It would have been better if Bernie had stayed true to his roots as an Independent Socialist.

Two Stamp Market Tips columnists at Linn's Stamp News show their total ignorance about Cuba

Scott U.S. 223

Just about anyone with a little bit of intelligence and education knows that American imperialists occupied Cuba after the Spanish-American war.

A couple of Linn's Stamp News columnists show their total ignorance about Cuba when they recently described the island as "the world's last remaining hardline Communist dictatorship."

Yankee imperialists get cagalera (diarrhea) when they hear the word Cuba.

The pair, of course, did not tell the readers that Cuba became free -- on January First, 1959 -- of the puppets that the Yankee imperialists used to impose on the island from 1902 to 1958.

Employee owned companies are growing in popularity in the USA due to the acute failures of American capitalism

One current example is a company named Mystic Stamp Company based in New York.

This past April 4, Linn's Stamp News reported that the said company became an employee owned company.

New York Times: Fulgencio Batista is Overthrown in Cuba


Cuban Dictator
Fulgencio Batista

JG: I was there when it happened. I was 14 years old and was attending Colegio De La Salle in the Vedado district of Havana. My parents had some Batistianos friends who informed them that the Fidel Castro rebels were advancing in Central Cuba. I was sent to Reparto Fontanar, outside of Havana, near the airport, where my godmother lived, together with one of my cousins and his wife and children. I wasn't told of what was going on beforehand.

On the early morning of New Year's Day, 1 January 1959, the news spread like wildfire: Batista Huyó
 - Batista Fled!

Everyone was on the streets immediately, laughing and dancing. Cuba was finally free of the Yankee-supported tyrant.

I returned to Vedado and the whole neighborhood was like a YUGE party. My mom found some black and red cloths and she made a 26 of July flag and we put it on our third floor balcony. From that building, University of Havana students had launched a failed assault on Batista's Presidential Palace in 1957. Scores were assassinated by Batista's hated police. 

The U.S. mafia-controlled gambling dens were immediately sacked. I would never again have to spend my scarce nickels in criminally controlled enterprises.

When Fidel entered Havana on January eighth 1959, we walked to 23rd street and 24th avenue to watch the rebels on their way to occupying Columbia Barracks, where Batista had staged his 10 de Marzo coup d'etat in 1952.

Bill Maher: Tax Churches

Bernie Sanders tells it like it is

When we started this campaign, I emailed my supporters and said, "This campaign is not about Bernie Sanders. It's about a grassroots movement of Americans standing up and saying: 'Enough is enough. This country and our government belong to all of us, not just a handful of billionaires.'"

I believe that now more than ever.

The Historical Leader of the Cuban Revolution, Fidel Castro, says his goodbyes to Cuba and the World.

Bernie Sanders does well in New York. "It ain't over till it's over. Pennsylvania and California here we come."

Constitutionally guaranteed civil liberties are in great danger in Polk County, Florida. An open letter to U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders

Winter Haven, Florida
April 19, 2012

Esteemed U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders:

I want you to be aware of what happened to two of your supporters in the city of Winter Haven, Florida, recently.

Last March two of your enthusiastic supporters, Jorge Gonzalez & Juan Perez formed a Bernie Club at the EC Apartments in our city. Polk County is an extremely conservative county in the Sunshine State.

E & C stands for Episcopal and Catholic. Those two churches own the 16 story building where more than 250 Seniors live.

Right from the beginning we were met with very strong opposition from the property management company that runs the building. The name of the company is SPM and the manager of the building is a young and inepxerienced young lady named Haley Alam. She is an employee of SPM.

The building has 19 bulletin boards, one on each floor and three in the ground floor of the building. We were informed by Ms. Alam that we could only put a notice announcing the foundation of our Bernie Club in the laundry room and at a tiny bulletin board in the lobby. Two out of 19.

Yesterday, April 18, I downloaded one of the pamphlets of your campaign for President of the United States. The title was 'Bernie Sanders on Senior Citizens.'

I personally had 200 copies of your pamphlet printed at a local print shop in Winter Haven that is very appropriately named 'Progressive Printers.' PACs and billionaires did not pay for the printing. It came out of my pocket.

Juan and I met at his floor and split the 200 pamphlets in half. I would personally deliver them at the clip that is on front tenant doors of floors 1-8. He would deliver to them to floors 9-16.

After our mission was accomplished, I retired to my apartment, and Juan went to tend to his personal affairs.

In the afternoon of the April 18, Juan Perez knocks on my apartment door and informs me that he had been violently threatened and insulted by one person in the ground floor of EC Apartments. According to Juan, he was told “You can't distribute this shit!”

Enters now, again, Haley Alam, who orders Juan Perez to remove the pamphlets from the doors of the apartments. He complied, because of the threats that he had received earlier.

Ms. Alam will not be able to prevent the thousands of Bernie pamphleteers from spreading the word about Democratic Socialism throughout the USA.

Cordially.

Jorge R. Gonzalez

This time, Bernie Sanders is 100% WRONG.

Last night Bernie Sanders political campaign held a YUGE rally in New York.

I got to the YouTube live feed very late during the rally.

The following morning I heard the story from a neighbor who is also a Bernie supporter.

A doctor who spoke from the podium called Hillary Clinton as one who is part of  "The Democratic Party Corporate Whores."

Bernie Sanders got pissed.

Sorry Bernie, but this time you are 100% wrong.

Both Bill and Hillary Clinton are card carrying members of the very exclusive "Democratic Party Corporate Whores."



First comes the answer "Because Capitalist Fraud is our Daily Bread in the USA" Open post for the question.

Then comes the question:

Why does it take several 'business days' to electronically transfer funds between two banks in the US?


In many other countries, eg the UK, interbank transfers typically take a matter of seconds.



The day in 1920 when Eugene V. Debs foresaw the future coming of Bernie Sanders and his Democratic Socialism Brigades of 2016

Your honor, I have stated in this court that I am opposed to the form of our present government; that I am opposed to the social system in which we live; that I believe in the change of both but by perfectly peaceable and orderly means....

I am thinking this morning of the men in the mills and factories; I am thinking of the women who, for a paltry wage, are compelled to work out their lives; of the little children who, in this system,are robbed of their childhood, and in their early, tender years, are seized in the remorseless grasp of Mammon, and forced into the industrial dungeons, there to feed the machines while they themselves are being starved body and soul....

I realize that finally the right must prevail. I never more fully comprehended than now the great struggle between the powers of greed on the one hand and upon the other the rising hosts of freedom. I can see the dawn of a better day of humanity. The people are awakening. In due course of time they will come into their own.

Socialism is not a radical idea. It is people helping people.


Socialism is people helping people. Social Security and Medicare are socialist ideas.

The people of the USA are not going to let Trump, Cruz or Rubio (now defeated), destroy those common sense accomplishments. Capitalist millionaires do not need help.

I am a proud supporter of U.S. Senator Bernie Sanders.

Message to Hillary Clinton: where is the transcript of your $650,000.00 speech to the greedy capitalist vermin of Gold in Sacks?

That is not a qualification for being President of the United States. We, the people, are going to stop you, bitch!

You and your amoral corporatist husband will never see the Oval Office again.

CBS News reported tonight awful news for American workers in Michigan

At tonight's 6:30 p.m. national news, the network reported that Ford Motor Company wants to move 2,800 jobs from Michigan to a plant in Mexico.

It was also reported that those jobs of UAW American workers pay an average $60.00 dollars per hour in compensation plus benefits.

In Mexico, Ford will only pay $8.00 per hour.

Is there no end to the corporate greed of American capitalism?

Fuck the workers, and put the profits in the pockets of capitalist parasites.

Bernie Sanders is the only presidential candidate who cares about American workers.

Hillary Clinton would give a blow job to Ford's CEO.

Oregon's Death With Dignity Act


Link to the Wikipedia Page

There is nothing in the Bible that tells people that they have to endure severe pain and suffering at the end of a terminal illness or disease. The people in Oregon were courageous visionaries when they enacted The Death with Dignity Act. I am proud and happy that I worked in that very important social and political campaign.
