Democratic establishment starts to gang up on Sanders | http://ow.ly/Y0m7S via +The Hill 

While Sanders has pledged not to run a negative campaign, Hillary gets her surrogates to do it for her, as Clinton's supporters come out swinging against Bernie, making outlandish claims but not backing them up with any substance.

How Wall Street Has Dominated 2016 Donations | http://ow.ly/XZr31 via @TIME

The securities and investment industry flexed serious financial muscle in the presidential money race last year. At $90 million contributed to all candidates, current and former, and the super PACs supporting them, it led all industries tracked by the Center for Responsive Politics, new data show.

She is all like" but I would be the first female president , I don't see how that is establishment." Then you heard applause. Get the hell out of here with your female sound bites. You ARE a typical paid off establishment politician, typical except your a woman.

Hillary Clinton says ‘every secretary of state that I know’ has been a paid speaker http://ow.ly/Y0bqj 

#FACTCHECK Every living former secretary of state is on the paid speaking circuit, but none appear to command the kind of speaking fees Clinton did.

A mere week before last night's New Hampshire debate, Hillary Clinton was raising money at the Philadelphia offices of a Wall Street investment fund. Perhaps she forgot about that when she professed that Wall Street was not supporting her?

Hillary Clinton Doing Finance Industry Fundraiser Just Before Iowa

Despite being dogged with questions about her ties to Wall Street, Hillary Clinton took a detour from the campaign trail in Iowa to do a finance industry fundraiser on Wednesday. Clinton appeared in Philadelphia at a “gala” fundraiser hosted by executives at Franklin Square Capital Partners. Clinton was then scheduled to head to New York City on Thursday, where she was to speak at a fundraiser co-hosted by Matt Mallow, a senior managing director and general counsel at BlackRock, the world’s largest asset management firm_._

If there has ever been any doubt, this removes it, this is where Clinton's loyalties are: with big fundraisers like the financial sector and Wall Street. Bernie Sanders gets his donations from regular folks and doesn't have or want a SuperPAC. Bernie is beholden to nobody except you, Clinton comes with corporate strings attached.


Clinton's top 5 lifetime contributors are Wall Street:

Hillary Clinton 7th highest recipient of campaign donations from Big Oil http://www.opensecrets.org/industries/recips.php?cycle=2016&ind=E01

Story
Tagline
LGBTQ/Equality activism, politics, community awareness & advocacy, tech/biz consulting, event planning & social media.
Introduction
Peter is a founding partner of The Symposiuma professional services firm serving the needs of 21st century individuals, organizations (non-profits/NGOs), and businesses (SOHOs / SMBs) by providing social media, Information Technology (IT), and general business practices consulting, event planning and fundraising services, and tax preparation servies.

The Symposium advises clients on social media (Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube, etc.) implementation, integration, and strategy and performs general business consulting & analysis, IT consulting, computer support services (repair, instruction, virus removal, computer upgrades, peripheral connections, installation & troubleshooting of small/home networks, OS reinstallation, etc.), and event planning and fundraising services.

Additionally, The Symposium offers office administrative & support services and provides basic bookkeeping services, as well as tax preparation services. The Symposium's clients are individuals, mom & pop shops, non-profit organizations (NFPs/non-profits), non-governmental organizations (NGOs), political organizations, politicians, small/home offices (SOHO), and small/medium businesses (SMB).


PERSONAL:

Peter is a disabled GOP (progressive Republican) LGBTQ political & community activist, advocate, and single gay guy living in Westchester County (NYC's suburb immediately to the north), although he can often be found visiting his Mum in Hartford, Connecticut.

He enjoys reading, indoor gardening (house plants), nature, technology, computers, networking, shopping, good food, good company, chocolate, snuggling, thunderstorms, the Universe, sci-fi shows, MMORPGs, open-source computing, politics, helping others to the extent of his abilities, and a hearty, good, spirited, respectful debate on occasion.

He is O/K/A the original Nite*Star back when 110 baud modem BBSes were the only way to get online. "Who am I?" is the free question; answers will cost you $25, payable via PayPal or Google Checkout. ;-)

Ask me what you want to know. Question are free, answers are on sale this week for US$18.00 (hey, considering the price of petrol and the rate of inflation these days, that's a bargain!) 

I occasionally lapse into the use of British English. 

I can be a persnickety curmudgeon when it comes to correct grammatical usage in what people say/write--just because it's on-line and on the computer doesn't mean one need throw proper grammar out the window! =b

I'm opinionated but my ears remain open and willing to listen to INTELLIGENT thoughts....

Apart from English, I only know a smattering of words & phrases in the other languages that are mentioned above, although I might know a bit more of Spanish than the others as I studied it in secondary education for a number of years.

Authentic cuisine, great tasting and good portions. Truly one of the best Thai restaurants in the greater Hartford area. You'll be hard-pressed to find better food and more generous portions, especially at their pricing! They don't do delivery but they do have take-out. Just like many restaurants in NYC's Chinatown, something that looks a bit like a hole in the wall often has the best food and dining experience! You can also BYOB here.

good food with pleasant staff although they can be on the slow side. For the price, the portions were a bit small. most other Thai restaurants in the area provide larger portions for comparable prices...

Good is good. Teas are good. Service is good. Free wifi is always good. They need more outlets to plug in. It's a bit pricey but then, it's a tea/coffee bar. And, it's at the edge of walking distance for me from mom's house in Hartford, so I enjoy going there whenever I come up to visit for a few weeks!

They're no longer in business. A Chinese restaurant is there now. Not sure what it is about this location but seems like restaurants don't last long here. Maybe the competition from as Pho Boston is too much?

You can get done spectacular deals here by using coupons and CVS's Extrabucks rewards when buying on sale. Staff is friendly, polite, and helpful. Would rather spend my money here and stock up when they have sales & use coupons than at places like Walmart, which is embroiled in controversies about how they treat their employees.

The food was slightly below average. Not much flavor. Menu items marked as spicy generated less heat than using regular pepper. The Thai iced tea was watered down and very weak. They apparently use lots of pre-packaged foods and sauces. It's also more greasy than others. There are many better options out there, for less money, as well. Phuket Thai, virtually across the street, is a much better option, IMHO. The decor is more traditional but the food is much better, for the same amount of money.
