    Tyra Sanchez who won RuPaul’s Drag Race season 2 is not responding to peeps who are asking if she’s okay. Does anyone know if Tyra was in club? That’s a place she works at a lot.

    I don’t know why, I just really needed to hear this again today:

      Powerful! No other first lady (or then wife of a presidential candidate) could give such a intro to their spouse. Michelle is pure gold/love.

      Oh Meta, I get shivers listening to that speech. I think we all needed to hear it again. If Michelle has the courage to be who she is where she is, we can only be there with her.

      This sounds like both of these nut jobs the orlando killer and the potential LA shooter were both homophobic, angry, hateful and violent. It sounds like ISIS was a mask for his real issue which was his hatred of LGTB folk. I am so sick and tired of wingnut hate. So tired.

    It’s IMPORTANT to note that this gay club was having a LATINO pride night.

    //Howell was arrested Sunday after telling police officers he was en route to L.A. Pride where he “wanted to harm” the event. He was heavily armed with what police called a “small arsenal” in his car.

    TMZ also reported that Howell was arrested within the last year after pointing a gun in a threatening manner at a neighbor during an argument. He agreed to plead guilty to a lesser charge of “intimidation” and the firearm charge was dropped. He’s still serving his one-year probation for that crime.

    Unlike the Orlando, Florida shooter, Howell is a young, white, midwestern man with a history of right-wing ideology, if his social media is any indication. He posted both anti-Hillary Clinton and anti-Barack Obama things on his social media as well as support for marjuana legalization. His last post on Facebook shows a meme comparing the Democratic presidential candidate to Nazi leader Adolf Hitler. Another post from March shows a tweet from Russian president Vladamir Putin where Howell calls President Obama a “punk ass obameramoo.” //

    Ken Burns Offers Blistering Takedown Of Donald Trump In Stanford Commencement Speech


    Trump is “a person who easily lies,” he continued; “who creates an environment where the truth doesn’t seem to matter, who has never demonstrated any interest in anyone or anything but himself and his own enrichment.” He is “an infantile, bullying man, who depending on his mood is willing to discard old and established alliances, treaties and long-standing relationships,” Burns said. His candidacy “is a political Ponzi scheme.”

    “Asking this man to assume the highest office in the land would be like asking a newly minted car driver to fly a 747,” he declared.

      If Hillary would lose in November (and she won’t) Bernie would be the main reason. He may as well have run 3rd party – and she’d still beat him and Trump.

    • June 12, 2016 at 7:20 pm

      She should just reply, “watch me.”

      But first she should send you on a very, very long study junket to places where revolution has been the norm. Places like USSR, Ukraine, the Middle East, Libya, Syria, Somali, Nigeria. Spend lots of time talking with those leading these revolutions, say months and months in each country. Yes, I know that means you might be away for as long as 4 years, but think of the knowledge you will gain on how to run a truly effective revolution here in the US when you return. 🙂

      had to respond to that tweet. Bernie has been on a gov’t payroll for at least 40 years and during all that time – no revolution. There’s more to Bernie’s rise than meets the eyes.

    • June 12, 2016 at 8:20 pm

      To hell with you and your revolution. I don’t know if I should pity the old man who don’t know that he lost. Maybe his wife need to explain it to him, hay Bernie you lost.

        Unfortunately, bella, I think his wife is on the same planet he lives on.

      • June 12, 2016 at 10:19 pm

        I ran out of pity a while ago. I am so infuriated at his deliberate misleading of young people and his complete dismissal of any cause or issue except his own.

    “Organizations supporting equality stood in solidarity on Sunday, filling the airwaves with profound statements of shock and heartache at the shooting at an LGBT nightclub Pulse in Orlando early that morning.

    “While the crime has not yet been labeled a hate crime, more than 20 percent of hate crimes reported nationally in 2014 targeted people based on their sexual orientation or gender identity, according to the most recent FBI statistics available,” The Human Rights Campaign (HRC) said in a statement.

    “Hate crimes based on sexual orientation currently account for 22 percent of all hate crimes in Florida, according to a report by Equality Florida, trailing only race as the most common motivation. As a percentage of the state population, LGBTQ Floridians are at the highest risk of being targeted with a hate crime. Florida law provides increased penalties for hate crimes based on sexual orientation.””

    GA/GE TODville.

    Such horrendous violence, hatred, and too many AR-15s.

    Today may be the day that America actually confronts this abominable problem — because this year is an election year, and the GOP has seen fit to nominate an unhinged egomaniac. Rest assured Trump will be on the offensive (in both senses of the word) from now until election day — he will respond with attacks whenever any MSMer can muster a legitimate question about how yuge a fraudster he really is.

    How would it be if we all called our Senators and Reps tomorrow and demanded a plan from them to stop this gun violence. THEY work for US! Call them and demand change. NOW! We are sick and tired of being sick and tired of this senseless killing….if they do nothing, VOTE THEM OUT!

    • June 12, 2016 at 10:15 pm

      these are the same lawmakers that did nothing after 26 4 & 5 years were slaughtered in their class rooms by a man with an assault weapon….

      We must change the folks who sit in Congress….WE Must…

      well, after all he has the “bully pulpit”, how about using that effectively instead blathering on and on about DC insiderism?
