I found the missing lynx

If he's yours you can claim him by calling 1-307-55... Never mind. I'm keeping him.

Have a wonderful Saturday everyone. :-)

I consider socialism part of the progressive agenda. Frankly, it is not a bad word. If one considers that even collective bargaining is a part of a socialist mind set...

If Senator Sanders can get the nomination... I'm in. I'm broke- which doesn't help the cause. I hope to be back in the classroom, by August... maybe I can find enough to contribute, but by then, it may well be too late.
 
"America is partly a social democracy already, of course, thanks to programs such as Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid, unemployment insurance, and food stamps. Sanders doesn’t want the government to run the entire economy, but he does want the government to ensure that the economy doesn't regularly ruin millions of people's lives.


The Vermont senator is a "democratic socialist"—and yes, there's a difference.

Arrest Data That May Help Explain The Baltimore Riots

These are real numbers and real facts. This is a real problem and Martin O'Malley should own up to his contribution to the destruction of real lives.

In an interview with The Marshall Project this week, David Simon, creator of "The Wire" and a former reporter for the Baltimore Sun, blamed the War on Drugs for the rise of bad policing generally, and former Mayor Martin O'Malley specifically for pushing the police to try to reduce crime rates through mass arrests. O'Malley went on to the governor's office and is now an unofficial presidential candidate.

"[T]he department began sweeping the streets of the inner city, taking bodies on ridiculous humbles, mass arrests, sending thousands of people to city jail, hundreds every night, thousands in a month," Simon said.

In 2006, the American Civil Liberties Union filed a class action complaint alleging a pattern of false arrests. Of more than 76,000 people arrested the previous year, prosecutors declined to charge 25,000 with any crime -- meaning roughly 30 percent of the arrests were basically bogus. In a 2010 settlement the city agreed to reform its police practices, though last year the Baltimore Sun reported on a persisting pattern of police brutality.

The website Vocativ created a visualization of the number of false arrests below.

A decade ago, the city conducted arrests sweeps, and wound up taking into custody tens of thousands of people who were never charged.

~ In 2005, Baltimore PD arrested 76,497 people without warrants.

~ Prosecutors declined to charge 25,293 of them.

~ Prosecutors could not prove charges against 7,510 people for loitering, impeding or obstructing pedestrian traffic.

~ Prosecutors could not prove charges against 1,832 people for trespassing, or 1,650 arrested for disorderly conduct/disturbing the peace/failure to obey.

I do not know what makes us think we are smarter than the planetary system. Stewardship ain't rape.

Finally!


After a delay of more than 160 days, Lynch will replace Eric Holder at the helm of the Justice Department

The politician of any stripe succeeds based upon the intensity and contribution of the followers. We citizens could move this rock into place. Senator Sanders cannot do it on his own.

+Lora R Fisher Sorry but no. No matter how well meaning Bernie might be we have recent proof of how compromised the 1%ers really are.

Remember when we thought O'Mama winning meant hope and change? That turned into  *no hope* and Same ol', same ol'.

We got O'MamaCare because the corporations no longer want to be bothered with us, not because it was going to actually do us any good.

We got bugger all action on Gitmo.

We got the new NSA and an expansion of the politics of surveillance.

We got drones as part of that expansion and the new USAF killing brown people over in foreign parts. That's not winning the hearts and minds of anybody.

All in all, we're not doing so well.

Here is the original post from Bernie Sanders without the typo.  That "fan" instead of "can" can distract people...

It irritates me that I can't get an otherwise thoughtful person to recognize (research) the lies.

The push to use 'Natural Gas' makes me laugh. Not to use it... just the insistence on  _fossilized_ gas. Mind you, methane is not odor free. Yet-- there is methane being generated in land fills, and feed lots in every state in the U.S. 
 
It is generally accepted that around 80% of known fossil fuel reserves must stay in the ground if we are to avoid catastrophic climate change so why is dirty fracking even being discussed as a UK e...

Thank you, Ezra for being such a caring person. #SocialSecurity  
Cutting 11 percent of the check someone lives on and 11 percent of the check someone barely notices are not the same thing.
