Framing the Issues  - 
 
 
Look who's been pushing private for-profit education!
“Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me.” F. Scott Fitzgerald. Education is the latest public commons that is being attacked and turned into a commodity by a group of the world's arrivistes, including Douglas Becker, Donald Trump, and Bill and Hillary Clinton.

At least you're being honest, when you use the term Framing..

Bernie in the Media  - 
 
 
If Sander's efforts lead to this it would be the best thing for the US in ages... Yes, we do need new people to begin to climb the political ladder, and that ladder starts in town, city, county, and state level elections.

So if you have an interest in politics - get involved with local government. Then run for office. Some of you will reach the national level, eventually.
Activists who help train potential candidates to run for office have a lot of advice for Bernie Sanders

Sometimes people, such as +Adam Black, accuse me of supporting Trump because I am opposed to Clinton. I take the contrary view, that supporting Clinton over Sanders still is more beneficial to Trump than Clinton at this stage. Can we all agree that Dr. West takes a reasonably principled stance abstaining from endorsement of the DNC Platform?

I am for a two-state solution, but no not based on 1967 borders (nor is anyone else who has actually looked at the geography and risk assessment.) But Cornell West is not for a two state solution, since he is a supporter of the BDS movement, which supports Hamas and the end of Israel as a Jewish state.

Vote for Clinton, the plunderer's choice.

Media/optics. She doesn't want to appear to be supportive of that exploitative industry. And obviously since people can't seem to distinguish between "industries that donate to all politicians" and "people who sell legislation" she was right about the optics.

Also, can we stay on topic for like 2 exchanges? We were discussing her paid speeches (of which about 2% were for financial firms). That is a different topic from donors to her campaign (of which there were millions.)

Comment on original, please. My comment there: What will Congress do when they find out who is going to get to Mars first?
 
China on pace to launch second space station later this year

China recovered an experimental probe from a new generation rocket Sunday, which helps it move a step closer to its goal of a Mars mission by 2020.

45,000 people die every year due lack of access to healthcare and the Democrats don't think the single-payer option is a pressing issue and refused to add it to their platform. But 8900 homicides by guns last year and they stage a sit in at the capital.

+John Baez when most people talk about inequality, they mean one number is different than another.

Seriously, can you stay on one topic for 10 seconds? Or is it that when someone responds to you, you immediately take a left turn and start discussing something entirely different?

And yes, a "new" link from 2012 for sure will address the ACA. /s
Census Bureau’s official estimate that 48.6 million Americans lacked health insurance in 2011.

So, given that the uninsured rate has dropped significantly due to the ACA, why are you arguing that supporting the ACA is bad again?
