I'd be really curious to know how Hilary's Net Worth decreased by half over that time period. Looks fishy.

Cheap Labor Conservatives deliberately spread disinformation about the impact of a Minimum Wage increase. Debunk their lies here

If you tell a lie big enough and keep repeating it, people will eventually come to believe it -GOP Propaganda Ministry

#MinimumWage #Wages  #Facts #Economics  #progressive #FightFor15
Minimum Wage Mythbusters. Myth: Raising the minimum wage will only benefit teens. Not true: The typical minimum wage worker is not a high school student earning weekend pocket money. In fact, 89 percent of those who would benefit from a federal minimum wage increase to $12 per hour are age 20 or ...

If conservatives really cared a about the debt, they wouldn't be guilty of creating the worst deficits

Republicans own the deficit, and the debt.

The GOP "tax cut and deficit spend" policy that started under Reagan is indisputably responsible for every penny of our debt.

No republican administration since has decreased deficit spending.

No democratic administration since has increased deficit spending.

But the revisionist apologists will argue otherwise.

Sadly most don't even understand what the deficit is. Many just listen to those on the right that lie about it.

Temperance River bridge, Lake Superior North Shore
we jumped off a cliff near here, then clung to the cliff side to work our way up River against the current. Downstream we swam across a little bay and out into chilly Lake Superior

Before one vote has been cast, Hillary already has 1/5th of the delegates for nomination. That’s reeks like a shady backroom deal

Don’t get me wrong, I am proud to be a member of the Democratic Party. I truly believe we are the party of the people, and that only together can we take on the powerful cabal of establishment elites. But there is a huge cognitive disconnect here between those with the most power in the party and what the base. By securing pledges of enough superdelegates that one candidate already is a fifth of the way to the nomination this early, it just looks and feels like the worst form of insider backroom deals. http://www.msnbc.com/all-in/watch/does-clinton-have-the-nomination-in-the-bag--515460163750

Same goes for the DNC refusing to have a fair amount of debates (there were 10 by this time in 2007) and the 4 state Dem parties that signed joint fundraising pacts with Hillary (NH, WI, VA, and MS).  http://www.nytimes.com/politics/first-draft/2015/08/25/4-state-parties-sign-victory-fund-pacts-with-clinton-campaign/

Note that I have said from the start that like Bernie, I like Hillary and will support her if she ends up winning the nomination, but every new insider stunt like this makes me a little less enthusiastic about that possibility. It also makes me want to work all that much harder to make sure that Bernie Sanders ultimately wins the Democratic Party nomination to be the next President of the United States.

The Clinton campaign says Hillary has already received pledges of support from at least 440 of the party's estimated 713 super delegates.

+Joseph Milan Those who complain the both parties are corrupted by big money, then discount the lone Independent running within one of the parties without any big money or party support.  OK, Vote for Trump then!  That's better right?  At least he is not a politician...and never has been. ;-)

Obama restores the Native American name of Denali to the Mt. formerly known as McKinley
 
President Obama has changed the name of Alaska's Mt. McKinley to Denali, the White House announced Sunday, a day before the president is set to visit the state.
President Obama has changed the name of Alaska's Mt. McKinley to Denali, the White House announced Sunday, a day before the president is set to visit the state. "Denali" is the Alaskan Native name for the mountain, which is North America's tallest - and a site of cultural significance to Alaska's...

"There is a reason President McKinley's name has served atop the highest peak in North America for more than 100 years, and that is because it is a testament to his great legacy," House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, wrote in a statement. "I'm deeply disappointed in this decision."

Perhaps Ohio should rename Campbell Hill: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Campbell_Hill_(Ohio). As the article states, McKinley never visited Alaska.

The St. Louis river had a kayaker and 3 boats of rafters. Our journey on the north shore of Lake Superior is about to begin. I'll be posting scenic updates periodically

The more I think about how crooked denying Dem debates is, the madder I get. #weNeedDebate

The problem is that only having 4 debates before the first primary and pushing them back so late (mid Oct is the first), it gives Hillary a HUGE advantage by denying coverage to others. Look at how Ben Carson went from "token black guy" to polling 2nd after the GOP debate for example. DWS has to go, and we need debates NOW.

It seems this post isn't about women... Someone had to interject that... This post also isn't about Hillary, but someone had to interject that too...

I wonder who could be the one-eyed sexist person in the room? ;)

Chances are he wrote that after hearing Bill Maher's comment:

“Nobody brings this up about Donald Trump, who is always on about, ‘We can’t have foreigners coming into this country!’” said Maher. “His first wife is from Czechoslovakia. His current wife is from Slovenia. So, if you think crawling under a wall is the most disgusting way to become an American, somewhere there is a Panamanian woman hiding in a truck full of chickens with ten pounds of heroin-filled condoms in her stomach who’s thinking, ‘Well, at least I didn’t have to blow Donald Trump.’
