• comment on a post Vote Against Obama in Iowa over 2 years ago

    You mentioned Rocky Anderson, who may get on 30 ballots if he's lucky, but you also have Jill Stein running for the Green Party nomination, who will probably be on 45.  Take a look at here latest message: There is also talk of Jill and Rocky joining forces.  Maybe we can make a push to get them on the Americansa Elect ballot as well.

  • It's not ironic at all - it just goes to show that dems don't truly support LGBT rights when it is not politcally expedient to do so (AKA raising money).  Just look at the 38-24 vote in NY on marriage equality, and at the Queens all dem delegation voting 4-3 against.

    The most ridiculous part of this is that the Pentagon is exempt, so we'll probably never see any of the $250B projected savings anyway, beacause we'll spend it all in Afganistan, Pakistan, Yemen, Columbia, etc, etc

    "messianic apocalyptic cult controlling atomic bombs"

    Exactly how much of this statement does not apply to Netanyahu's government?

  • comment on a post Schumer Comes Out In Favor of Same-Sex Marriage over 5 years ago

    Not holding my breath for Senator press conference on this one - I trust him about as far as I could grapple him away from a microphone.  If he starts to say such things outside of a group of Gay supporters, and starts to put pressure on the NY state senate to bring it up for a vote in NYS, then I'll believe it.  

    I mean c'mon, how many press conferences has he had in is umpteen years in the senate and congress, and he's never once said anything positive about gay marriage.  

  • I see it like this.  Obama is giving control of 52% of the discretionary spending over to a Bush appointee and his neocon cronies.  This means that is the disastrous economy and ballooning deficits leaving no money left for health care or education, Obama intends to cut ZERO from the defense budget for at least a couple of years.  This after sitting in a room with Bush and McCain about the $700 billion bailout that banks are more important than healthcare, education, or other social programs.

    and you call this change, mr president-elect?

  • Unless she starts to speak to the plight of the Palestinian people with a straight face, she's going to make another disastrous SOS.

  • Thanks to the 1/4 million DEMOCRATS who voted for Bush in Florida, too.  Nader was about 12th on the list of reasons why Gore lost.

    #1 - his awful negative campaign against Bradley, who turned on the real progressives and he never got them back.

    PS - I've still voting for McKinney in New York.  With Bloomberg and the Democrats city council plotting to overthrow the will of the people by eliminating term limits, we need a strong 2nd party in NY more than ever.

  • comment on a post Headsup from Kucinich over 5 years ago

    It's amazing to me that you guys just buy into the bullsh*t of the bailout because Obama voted for it. Kucinich speaks for a great many americans when he says that this bill does NOTHING to help the underlying problem.

    I was out campaigning today for Cynthia McKinney in Brooklyn, and more that a dozen people wearing Obama pins took the lit, because they see the democrats selling them out on the bailout.  Just because Obama signed on does not mean this is the end of this discussion - it will come back to bite him in the a$$ later on that he did not defend the hard working american atxpayers who are having problems making their mortgage payments.

  • comment on a post North Carolina Close But Not Flipping Quite Yet over 5 years ago

    Gantt was close to double digits ahead of Jesse Helms the week before the election and got creamed - Jesse's folks just didn't answer polls.  I wouldn't get excited about Obama's chance in NC unless I see a 10 point lead there.

  • comment on a post War Crimes....Not that anyone cares anymore over 5 years ago

    If we don't try Bush, Cheney, Rice and Rumsfeld for war crimes in 2009, where is the disinsentive for the next president to do the same or worse?

    Which is why I will be voting for Cynthia McKinney, who was one of the only congresscritters to stand up to Bush and Rumsfeld, filed for impeachment, and who is calling for actual accountability when Cheney's cronies leave the white house.  The Green Party has led on this issue, and the Pelosi and Obama just want to sweep this under the rug.

  • When 3rd party candidates are added into the mix the in the latest CNN/TIME poll in NV, here are the results.

    NEVADA
    Registered Voters 4% MOE
    Aug 24-26
    Obama 41%
    McCain 41%
    Barr 5%
    McKinney 3%
    Nader 6%
    None 3%
    Other 0%
    No Opinion 2%

    Obama's got some work to do with 3rd party and independent voters in Nevada if Reid says he'll win by 5%.

  • on a comment on Throwing Hillary Under the Bus. over 6 years ago

    yeas - I suppose she would be seen as a disgrace to the GA Dem party that colluded with the Republicans is her district to cross over in the primary to defeat her.  

    If that's the Dem party you claim to represent, I want nothing to do with it.
