Good for them.... I'm pissed as hell and wish I was there... this is very nearly the last straw for me:
A 30-step review of the mayhem in Philadelphia, and what Clinton’s convention says about the future of the American political system.

The DNC chairwoman had come under fire since the release of emails showing the party helped Clinton during her primary against Sanders.

I would like to say a few things about this story…

First: I HATE it whenever the private correspondences between people are released and made public in this way. It seems like a horrible violation of privacy, on par with some peeping tom. No matter how horrible what someone says in a communication that was supposed to be private, I hate to see that communication made public without their consent. I know that some of you disagree with me on this, but it’s how I feel.

Next: The fact that this appears to be an attack on the DNC by a foreign power, specifically intended to help get Trump elected, is INCREDIBLY disturbing.

Next: I am incredibly impressed by Sander’s response, and how he continues to call for unity despite how horribly he was treated by the DNC, as revealed by these emails.

Finally: it would appear that some very serious reforms are needed in the DNC, including increased impartiality as well as far greater transparency and accountability, (without hacking private email conversations).

I hope that this attack will backfire on Trump’s Russian backers, that Sander’s call for unity will prevail, and that the DNC will quickly make the needed reforms to make sure that this never happens in the future.

“To my mind, what is most important now is the defeating of the worst candidate for president that I have seen in my lifetime, Donald Trump, who is not qualified to be president by temperament, not qualified to be president by the ideas that he has brought forth,” Sanders said on ABC.

Lots of people keep telling me that it's all of us voting for the lesser of two evils that perpetuates the problems we have with the two party system...

Unfortunately,that is inaccurate.

If no one wins a majority of the electoral votes, it goes to the house to decide.

That means that there's no other viable 3rd choice! I do wish there were. But we desperately need to change our laws to make 3rd choices reasonable. But for now, they aren't. And it's not the fault of people voting for the lesser of two evils, its in the system that makes voting for the lesser of two evils the only rational choice in a situation like this.

In the face of so much fear and anger, I thought I would share a thought... on faith and logic.

Politics: Moderate conservative

My political views are a jumble of utilitarian, libertarian, conservative, and progressive ideas. And I know what you are thinking, and I revel in the contradiction. I am a moderate first, and I am the enemy of partisanism, and extremism, which I think are the causes of most of the world's problems.

We are from out of town, and we asked a local lady at the movie theater where we should go for breakfast, and she recommended this place. Local recommendations are usually good, so we tried it. We weren't disappointed! The biscuits were fluffy the skillet was amazing, and the steak and eggs were wonderful, and the price was very reasonable. We will be coming back here again next time we visit!

This is a good place. They are small, and unfortunately, the only pet store in town. But they do a good job. They don't carry everything I might hope, but that's a function of their size. They recently expanded their space, and this is getting better. The service is really good, and they will often order things they don't carry.

This is our favorite local restaurant. Not too fancy, but decent prices, and good food, with a fun atmosphere. On Thursday nights they sometimes have a guitarist performing, who does a great job. We love to go and listen.
