    As I was driving to work this morning, I exited the freeway and stopped behind a vehicle that had a “Ready for Hilary” sticker on it. Almost ruined my morning. Gave me an instant headache, I had to turn my music up and sing at the top of my lungs to clear my vision πŸ˜€

      Excellent. TV critics were saying that Selma at the GG was hampered by its late release and that the one Globe for best song would have been and will be joined by many other awards as the film is seen. I expect SAG and Oscar nominations a-plenty.

        Don’t be overly excited. She has refused consistently to make sure hate crimes laws in CA are enforced. She has obstructed several steps in government reform. She is more photo op than substance. Take a hard look at an insubstantial candidate.

              • January 13, 2015 at 4:18 pm

                Thank you meta. I should do my own research rather than take the word of someone who is not even a regular here on TOD. AG Harris was just elected in 2010 and sworn in 2011. In reading the archived press releases she has continued to do the good work of former AG Brown who is now Governor Brown. Churchlady needs to post what she has because I do not see anything in AG Harris’s four years as AG in CA as not pursuing hate crimes only the opposite. She has asked state legislators to pass laws to make crimes against transgender illegal. She appears to be a champion for all the people in this state and would make an excellent Senator for which I would gladly compaign door to door.

                • January 13, 2015 at 4:42 pm

                  Thanks, jojo. She was also an outstanding District Attorney in SF for many years.

                  The other thing I love about her is that she is a good friend and strong supporter of PBO. She was one of the first politicians to canvass for him in Iowa. The first time I met her was at a small intimate gathering here in SF with Maya Soetero-Ng and she was extremely personable. She also dropped by a phone banking session here in 2008 on Election Day to cheer us on. Then last year I went to a talk on gun violence she gave with her close friend Beau Biden. They were both sensational. So, needless to say, I’m really rooting for her and will work on her campaign.

        She would be better than any GOP, but she is NOT better than other Dems. She needs some tough scrutiny on her preference for that which brings media v that which needs doing for all of us. She has ONE thing under her belt – enforcing the work on subprime mortgages – and that’s a lousy track record. If she were not so contemptuous of citizens trying to get justice I’d chalk it up to inexperience, but she is ACTIVELY hostile to reform that doesn’t garner her headlines.

The Republicans in that room probably thought he was speaking a foreign language when he mentioned “putting America first.” They have not the smallest clue what that means unless you define America as the Koch Brothers and their buddies.

        January 13, 2015 at 2:17 pm

        Excellent points Nena and Linda. I agree with Nena in that this is not a political issue BECAUSE they cannot blame it on “minorities”. Since welfare has been racialized and given a “Black face” by the media and both political parties, facts like WV being a welfare state will be studiously ignored because it goes against the racist propaganda that has been used to placate poor Whites for decades. If the Obama era has taught us anything it is that facts don’t carry much weight when they contradict the desired narrative the powers that be want to propogate. If Whites realized that far more Whites are on public assistance than Blacks, they may start to realize that they have more in common with the Black family that lives across town, than they do with the Koch brothers, and the plutocrats cannot have that.

        • 121 jackiegrumbacher
          January 13, 2015 at 2:51 pm

          Eric, I believe there’s a primitive need in some people to blame “the other” for their troubles. The majority always manages to single out a group–whether it’s witches, gypsies, jews, muslims, Chinese, Irish, Latino or Black and assign them the blame for every wrong. People in positions of power learn to skillfully play on this human flaw for their own political purposes–either votes or armies. The Republican/corporate/media complex has always used the US Black population for this purpose and deliberately escalated the tension after the runaway and to them frightening success of President Obama in 2008. History will one day record this deliberate fomenting of racial tension by Republicans as one of the most disgraceful actions in our nation’s history.

          “If Whites realized that far more Whites are on public assistance than Blacks, they may start to realize that they have more in common with the Black family that lives across town, than they do with the Koch brothers, and the plutocrats cannot have that.”

          But that is a mental hurdle that some whites can’t or won’t try to overcome. The most downtrodden white racist will always think that they are better than the most affluent black person.

            January 13, 2015 at 4:33 pm

            The racist belief that “only Black people are on welfare” is a primary tenet of the racist belief system. Ever notice how Black people are never presented as taxpayers in the media? Those Black marchers who marched in the 1960’s (who were attacked by police dogs and fire hoses) were taxpayers, same as the folks who marched against police brutality last month (who were tear gassed and terrorized by the police). But the media, left, right and center, work hard never to portray them as taxpayers petitioning the government, that their tax dollars fund, for justice. During most of this country’s history, the African-American was forced to pay his/her tax dollars to a government that treated them as second class citizens, through Jim Crow laws, “separate but equal” and voter disenfranchisement. The media and those who control it will never present Black folks in this light because it would open the door to reparations claims and would present Blacks as being citizens just like White folks.

He would turn that place around, set it in the right direction, insist on kicking passive state parties into shape and get the Democrats ready for this century.
