My comment on Maureen Dowd's excellent take-down of where we are in the Democratic primary. http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/22/opinion/sunday/weakend-at-bernies.html?_r=0#permid=18598609

Hillary can’t dispatch a Democrat who’s not really even a Democrat.

Paul Krugman's op-ed is something to behold. It begins with calling #BernieSanders  supporters "dead-enders..." If this is how the establishment sees how the election is going, then we have a preview of what Clinton and the DNC will do at the convention.

If this is a trial balloon by the Clinton campaign through a Times op-ed writer, then it had better get popped, and fast! My comment http://www.nytimes.com/2016/05/17/opinion/campaign-stops/can-hillary-clinton-goldwater-girl-win-over-republicans.html?ref=opinion&comments#permid=18550570 <<--

"Can Hillary Clinton ... Win Over Republicans?"

LOL. Notachance. Trumpism might lose a few to her, though.

When the headline claims to be about the truth... Here's my comment on this Krugman blog post... Readers and viewers are being bombarded with these pseudo-academic theories and factless pieces.

Now, Paul Krugman sends up the Bill Clinton in charge of the economy trial balloon... Will voters be happy or will there be a backlash?

Excerpt:

What I’ve come to understand is that most American media aimed at children is propaganda designed to enforce very conservative and harmful ideas about class, disability, gender, gender identity, nationality, race, sexuality, and Otherness in general. There are some exceptions (Steven Universe may be one, though I have some minor issues with that show as well that I hope someone can correct; but that’s the topic of another conversation).

But for the most part, this media is attempting to indoctrinate children into becoming a very specific kind of citizen, a very specific kind of laborer, a very specific kind of taxpayer, a very specific kind of soldier, to practice a very specific kind of religion, to form a very specific kind of family-and all of those things lean noticeably to the right.

Below is a transcript interview I had with the founder and operator of the Facebook page, Son of Baldwin, where we discuss comic books as a political medium and also as it relates to and in many ways reflects the current racial and gender structures we see in society.

Another ugly Paul Krugman blog post that includes a link to #BernieSanders  statement on #Nevada  but paints a completely opposite picture of what is being said.
