Bernie On The Move

Building an ever stronger grass-roots movement that is proving corporate money won't win, I watch in amusement as the libertarians/republicans become more hysterical. The active childish name calling campaign against Bernie may incite your hardcore choir but will only help turn the largest block of voters - Independents - against you. We the people, are weary of your spin gimmicks. When you begin honest discussion of points Bernie is speaking of, points the people want actively explored, we may begin listening to you. Meanwhile, it is so easy to dismiss you If all you remain clinging to is 'him be a socialist'.

This election reminds me of a truth spoken long ago...

"First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win."    

 - Mahatma Gandhi
Bernie Sanders has been running for president for two months, but Wednesday night in Madison, Wisconsin, his long-shot campaign got real.

An idealist is one who, on noticing that roses smell better than a cabbage, concludes that it will also make better soup.

Zen Rule of Thumb

Undecided as to which side to pick in an argument? Pick the side doing the least amount of name calling.

Keeping It Real

I keep hearing Democrats repeating their mantra for a female President - "We owe Hillary this one". IMHO, I can think of a female more deserving.

When the wife drives,
I've learned not to yell,
I just close my eyes,
asking, what the hell?

SCOTUS Saves Republicans From Another Fine Mess They Created
The U.S. Supreme Court sided today with the Obama administration over its major healthcare overhaul, upholding federal subsidies across the country. The justices voted 6-3 in favor of allowing the subsidies to continue. The decision will have a major impact on the millions of Americans who are...

I have lost all faith in our branches of government.  We are moving closer daily to a dictatorship.

Awesomeness 

MSM and the Einsteins out there are frustrated in their inability to get you to riot on each other. In the middle of laughing at their failure, I realize a long ago question has been answered.

Story
Tagline
An Optimistic Realist.
Introduction
As Cincinnati is too Southern to be Yankee and too Northern to be Rebel, I'm too Conservative to be Liberal and too Liberal to be Conservative. If I were to be labeled, Independent would be the best fit.
 
We are a diverse world with differing views. While you may not agree with an opinion, respect that person's right to have one.

Hate only slows the quest for the zeal of life. It poisons the mind. It tarnishes spirit. 

About me: 

* Not a Tea Party member.
Went to a TP meeting and was turned off by the racism seen. Have never been to another. Hope your TP is better.

* Not an OWS fan. 
Liked some of the basics when it first appeared but was turned off, after several meetings attended, over the 'give me' attitude. 

* Not a Republican, Democrat or Libertarian.
Like the positives of all and detest the negatives of each. 

* Not Religious but am Spiritual.
Enjoy the Spirituality of my Cherokee heritage. Soured on the flaws of Atheism and Religion.

On Topics:

Tend to be for the underdog. If your hate shows against an Atheist, I'll defend the Atheist. Show hate toward the Religious, you'll have me calling you out. Your small mind stunts your growth.

No need for me to play the Red/Blue game. Both are just opposite ends of the same turd. Pick the end you feel the cleanest.

That's about it. If you feel a need to know more, just ask. If you are one that consistently stereotypes, hates, reshares, spams my stream, has no meaningful profile, then please un-hoop and move on. No sense in either of us wasting our time.
