  1. Cat Kin says:

    The nation’s Democrats have once again demonstrated their good sense, perception and Americanism by electing Hillary Rodham Clinton as their party’s Presidential nominee.

    This, despite and year long series of petty and scandalous professional attacks. This, despite years of petty and scandalous personal attacks on a woman who insisted on keeping her marriage vows.

    This, despite a constuency of socialist leaning party members who were cajoled by a carismatic and determined expert media opponent who whould upend the hard work and political insight of one of America’s greatest presidents.

    Yet good sense has prevailed. And for that I thank God.

    I’m shocked! Not.

    Of course, she is not the only one. Many of her brothers and sisters have turned to Bernie and even a miniscule few to GOP candidates Hillary still has the support of a vast majority of the African American vote.

  3. Myron Buchholz says:

    I can’t support HRC because Margaret Thatcher had one aircraft carrier and attacked a country. HRC will have 12. I guarantee you we are bombing somebody.

      Without substantive and reliable sources your post appears as the usual tainted offerings sourced from the Republican and radical Tea Party spin machines, Fuxt News, the KKK, and Misogynistic and other assorted women hate groups.

    Myron Buckholz has made a great case for supporting Bernie Sanders– and– for us to support Myron Buchholz in his quest for the Wisconsin Congressional seat for the Third District.

    He needs our help!

    • Duane12 says:

      I disagree, Ed. Is Myron running to replace Ron or Hillary? What is he trying to prove? Do you want the Democratic Party split much as the Tea party has become among the Republicans?

      We don’t need Myron’s extreme and cruel IMO unsupported attacks against Hillary, but Ron Kind is fair game, if proven.

      I give Myron’s “expose” of Hillary a failing grade of D+.

      Ladies and gentlemen, let us agree to disagree on some of “our” issues and candidates, but not at the cost of a common bond or unity against a common foe or injustice; ‘else we become as them.

  5. Duane12 says:

    Best wishes to Myron and Ron; also Bernie and Hillary. May the best man/woman win.

    Let”s take a timeout for something to “….sooth the savage breast” amidst the contentiousness of politics and the late season snow storm forecast for this afternoon and evening with 10 inches of snow!.
