      Maybe in the next 5 or 10 years we will point to this moment when Cancer cures will be as common as cold cures. Thanks to PBO our loved ones will never have to die from Cancer.

    Here is my report on our trip to the Iowa caucuses – I thought a timeline would be the best layout:
    6:20 – We got to the Kirkwood Elementary School gym (Coralville Precinct #5) it was already pretty crowded at the check-in.
    6:23 – Went into the gym – HRC table along the west wall, BS table along the east wall, and MoM table on the north side. The HRC table had water, munchies, and bumperstickers. The BS table had water and a few t-shirts.
    6:40 – Standing room only, large number standing on BS side, lesser so on HRC side
    7:00 – Still not started, must be processing stragglers – impatience starting to be noted
    7:15 – Finally get started with the reading of a letter from state chair, passing envelopes to collect money for local and state party, electing a permanent chair/secretary for the precinct
    7:25 – Manually counted everyone in the room – 321 total, excluding observers and kids
    7:40 – First viability grouping – have to have 15% or at least 48 in the group – only 2 MoM supporters and 4 undecideds
    7:45 – First totals HRC 141 and BS 180 – first realignment to change groups, persuade MoM supporters and undecided
    8:05 – Still 3 undecideds, so have hold 2nd alignment for 15 minutes – many rude comments from the back row about what kind of idiot could possibly still be undecided??
    8:15 – Manual recount done, HRC ended at 146 (46%) and BS at 174 (54%) – this was expected, due to all the University students in the community – not sure what happened to the original count of 321
    8:20 – The next step is to nominate state delegates, so everyone started leaving
    8:35 – We got home again, not a bad evening’s work! Mr. Muscatinegal was well-fed at the caucus, having a donut, a bag of trailmix, and some fruit snacks from the HRC booth.
    Here’s seriously hoping that Iowa either goes to a primary system or that someone else gets the first status next time! πŸ™‚

      Thank you for the post – was this a large turnout for your group? I’m reading the GOP turnout was way up on 2012 – no-one seems to be mentioning the dems

    Jeb! can run for Rubio’s seat as Rubio and Cruz will run an immigration law firm to deport all immigrants.

  10. February 1, 2016 at 10:12 pm

    The media CW has already decided the winner of Iowa is Marco Rubio, and Hillary lost because delegates.

    My parting contribution for today.

    http://reason.com/blog/2016/02/01/google-celebrates-frederick-douglass

    Today’s Google doodle is an image of Frederick Douglass, the escaped slave who became one of the most eloquent and influential abolitionists in American history. The doodle signals the start of Black History Month, which grew out of earlier traditions such as “Negro History Week” and offers a period of intensive reflection on the contributions of blacks to the history of the United States while also reminding the country of the historical realities of slavery and other unspeakable ills pushed on African Americans due to de facto and de jure racism.

    Douglass, who was believed to have been born in February, 1818 is of special interest to libertarians for many reasons. As Damon Root has written for Reason, Douglass was a true classical liberal who believed in individualism, strong property rights, and voluntary philanthropy as the best way to create a free, prosperous, and inclusive society.

  34. February 1, 2016 at 10:46 pm

    Hillary’s campaign is declaring victory. Outstanding precincts are pro-Clinton, and doubtless they already know the results before they are officially reported.

    So all those people who don’t believe in government spent millions of $$$ to lead what they don’t believe in & at the end of the day, the top 3 got very close to equal delegates.

    I like that the dems believe that government can do good things, and that is why they want to lead it.

    February 1, 2016 at 11:12 pm

    by a rough count, the goppers turn-out was over 150k which the pundtwits predicted will be a landslide for donald dreck. WRONG. AGAIN.

    any idea about the dems turnout?

      watching PBS and the consensus is that it is still too close to call. They are also saying that either way, HRC has a heck of a lot work to do. Gwen Ifill acknowledged that the Obama Coalition is no longer reflected in the map.

        Not much of a O coalition in lily white iowa. So clueless pundtwit strikes again. Having said that, it is an impressive show by BS. Any margin under 3% is a big win for him and his supporters. And yes, hillz has to up her game.

    Of the two, Cruz is the most dangerous. Il Douche is simply a demagogue.

    • 115 nospin
      February 1, 2016 at 11:33 pm

      NCLB, Cruz will never be President. According to the folks on PBS, the Republicans in leadership are already looking to support Rubio as their only hope because he seems to be the only one left that the rest of the nation may actually consider as electable on the GOP side.

    Cruz started with “To God be the glory,” so I actually went looking for a response from “TheTweetOfGod” on twitter. Cracking myself up, over here! These RWNJs mess with yer mind!

      After I muted him, looked like Cruz was reading from a book – maybe Green Eggs and Ham, again, I thought.

      But, no, went back and checked and he was reading from the Bible. And he just mentioned the Judeo-Christian values that formed our nation. Which is fine, if we didn’t have the separation of …

      Oh, never mind. He just said “Yes we can.” I’m done.
