      I sure hope this program gets posted to youtube because it has been very powerful to watch.

        Sister Simone Campbell is one of the speakers on this program. She said she spoke to several Republicans at their recent convention who said to her what this one man said, which was, “There is not a candidate worth supporting in this election. But I have been a life long Republican, and come November I will do what I must,” meaning he will vote Republican. It is bred so strongly into them that they cannot overcome it, even with all the evidence to the contrary, and with a heart and a mind that screams the truth to themselves.

    Watching Buffet introduce Hillary – she supports everyone that supports her & is so obvious about it. The difference with the other nominee gets more and more and more

    Buffet is discussing the constitution (some people haven’t read it)

    I am beginning to think that the solution to this year’s elections is to “lock them up” while they await for the Great Tweet-er.

    BISMARCK, N.D. — A federal judge on Monday blocked North Dakota’s state’s voter identification law after it was challenged by a group of American Indians, who alleged it unfairly burdened their right to vote.

    U.S. District Judge Daniel Hovland issued a temporary restraining order and criticized the state for its 2013 repeal of provisions that let people without valid IDs vote if someone vouched for them or if they signed an affidavit swearing they were a qualified voter.

    “The public interest in protecting the most cherished right to vote for thousands of Native Americans who currently lack a qualifying ID and cannot obtain one, outweighs the purported interest and arguments of the State,” Hovland wrote.

    He added: “There are a multitude of easy remedies that most states have adopted in some form to alleviate this burden.”

      Those that believe in Democracy, the United States and enjoys all the privileges and opportunities this country affords them yet they still won’t vote. This is the system we have, either vote and change things or shut up or denounce your citizenship and move to another country. I hate these whiners who think NOT VOTING is better because you’ll get the same results, NOT IF EVERYONE STOPPED VOTING.

    Nate’s new forecast including convention bounce. He also has something called a Now-Casr which predicts chance of winning if election held right now. Totally meaningless but fun watch. Last time I looked it was at 82.2%. Old Donald will just keep pissing more people in his party until there’s no one but the Kluxxers & Nazis left. Woohoo! Drag him all day everyday!

        1 model includes polls, economic data and historical data.

        1 model just uses polls

        I have no idea what’s in that Now-Cast thing.

    Rump is attempting to remove any form of democracy in the US
    – no taxes
    – no debates
    – when he loses he will not concede because “the election was rigged”

    He wants chaos whether he wins of loses

      99ts, I’ve now learned that Trump doesn’t have to concede. If Hillary has the electoral college votes, she will be assumed to be the president-elect until the Electoral College meets and makes a formal declaration. So he can rant, rave and stamp his feet, but it won’t change reality–a concept he has a hard time grasping.

      • 52 99ts
        August 1, 2016 at 9:28 pm

        Losing the electoral college votes means Trump loses with or without conceding – many thoughts around that Trump will then start legal proceedings to overturn the election. I know it won’t work, but it sure will be ugly. Be interesting to see how the GOP congress critters respond.

        What a great story this was (and is!). PBO has really surrounded himself with some incredibly capable and caring people!

        Meta, I have a question for you since you are another twitter master. How do you get that excerpt from the news article as part of your actual tweet? I really want to learn how to improve my twitter skillz so I can get to the next level these last days of the election season. Thanks in advance!

          Hey, PS LA!! Do you know how to do a screen shot? That’s all I do. Then attach it as an image to a tweet.

          To do a screen shot on a Mac:

          Press Command-Shift-4. …
          Move the crosshair pointer to where you want to start the screenshot.
          Drag to select an area. …
          When you’ve selected the area you want, release your mouse or trackpad. …
          Find the screenshot as a .png file on your desktop.

      I am so happy for Brian. And having our wonderful VP do the honors, great day for all of them. POTUS has spoken how he and FLOTUS feel so proud to have so many of the young people who have made this journey with them marry, and start their families. So beautiful.HZ

      • August 2, 2016 at 8:26 am

        Exactly, HZ. Having Joe do the honors is such a special moment and a special love and trust. Brian is among the staff who have been with PBO all along the way, since his days as a Senator. So when FLOTUS is asked what she’ll most, it’s easy to see why she simply said: the people. All the people that have taken this journey with them.

    Public Service Announcement.


    This is 2016. You should be able to check your voting status ONLINE through your local voting jurisdiction.

    And, if you have Senior Citizens in your family:
    1. Check their status
    2. Ask them if they want to do Absentee Voting
    3. Contact your Absentee Voting Unit and ask them when they will be open for business. Hint: the earlier that you get your application in – you will be in the first batch of ballots mailed out when your jurisdiction is able to do so legally.

    If you have family members in the Military – ASK THEM IF THEY HAVE MAILED IN THEIR FPCA SO THAT THEY CAN VOTE.
    You can fill out an FPCA ANYTIME.
    Military/Overseas ballots – the first ballots will be mailed out the last week of September 2016.

    This is summer – bring it up at the BBQ.
    Bring it up at church.

    Everyone making a big deal about McCain and others disagreeing with DT,,,doesn’t mean jack.


    Like many other politicians who don’t want to get too close to Trump while not alienating him either, McCain said, “I support the party’s nominee.”

    I hope that Ann Kirkpatrick kicks his sorry ass to the curb! Anyone that can, should give to her campaign. I have.

    Bottom left side gets you to where you can donate:)

      no kidding! it’s been annoying me to see so many republicans getting a pass and letting “the news” act as if they’re reasonable and somehow separate from their party’s nominee, who won in a landslide of republican voters.

      that party has been so far into crazy land for decades. w. bush would stammer and mutter through debates and interviews and snickers about troop deaths. mccain brings palin into our lives and laughs and jokes about bombing iran. so many forget what a laughing stock rmoney was and crazy things and lies he’d say about president obama, while also never releasing his taxes (he put out a few pages and left out any of the investment details/overseas hiding). republican voters…YOU BUILT THIS TRUMP TRAIN!
