My Top Two Reasons To Vote For Bernie and Top Two Reasons Not To Vote For Bernie


Top Two Reasons To Vote For Bernie:

1) Uncle Bernie’s grab-bag of good policy reclaims democracy for the people and takes a drastic U-turn away from ecological catastrophe.

2) He is the ultimate long-distance runner of politics. 30 years ago he had the vision to know what this country needed to do. He organized and spoke truth to power and the country finally caught up with him. We need that long distance vision to put us on track for where we need to be 30 years from now.


Top Two Reasons Not To Vote For Bernie:

1) The nails on chalk board effect of the billionth time he mentions the billionaire class.

2) The continuous deafening lamentations of ignorant Never Bernie people followed by Bernie’s exhortations to respect these people.


Coffee Talk With Adam

A preliminary discussion about MESSAGE (Something about Bernie or Bust)

Coffee Talk with Adam – Something about Bernie or Bust.

Yay, Democrats, but F the DCCC and DNC. #MedicareForAll #PartyOfBotterman

Stream of consciousness from the screaming hell of caffeine addiction, My love/hate relationship with my party. Campaigns and Elections. Adam’s wild years. Political economy. Election2020. Honoring Veterans.

Keep your hate, clipped and distant
Keep your luck, a two-headed cow
The pilgrimage has gained momentum
Take a turn, take a turn
Take a fortune, take a fortune – R.E.M.


Adam’s random thoughts on DCCC, 2019 Patrick Botterman Award Breakfast, and #MedicareForAll. Plus, Lisa on #MedicareForAll
Piss DCCC – image from last night’s deleted tweet. I meant what I said but didn’t want to slam the DCCC the same day the DEM HOUSE did some good work.

There’s this mythos that the left wing controls the media… Bill Clinton, Barack Obama, Hillary Clinton, that’s not the far left. It is in a bizarro world where you have a President like you have now… we’re living in a rightwing madhouse where these corporate conservative people are the far left.

More nonsense. More craziness. It becomes normal in a sort of way. Like the way racism is normalized to the point where we don’t even see it.

RICHARDSON! calls in! TIGER WON? Are you kidding? I thought Ex-Cub, ex-White Sox Bobby Molinaro was going to win that thing!

Fun Facts: The GOP was formed in 1854. Lincoln campaigned for Republican candidates to the Illinois General Assembly in 1858 seeking an appointment to the US Senate.


Facebook Live Demo

Dr. Mrs. Girlfriend joined me in the podcast studio which is still under construction.

Lisa needs practice for her #M4A podcast so I fired up the Facebook Live and started rolling. We’re having some fun with our lefty Romper Room and we talked about #MedicareForAll #M4A, some #GreenNewDeal some #Bernie2020 and looked back again at #ACA #Obamacare and the #GOP #RepealAndReplace movement that won a lot of elections but then backlashed in the midterms when after seizing all levels of American government it was revealed they had nothing but misery and despair and more money for #BigPharma and #BigInsurance to offer the desperate and pissed off American voters that are tired of paying more for less.

We gave a couple of shout outs to #BLM Lake County founder Clyde McLemore who had to visit the ER and has our thoughts and prayers.

We walked into an emotional minefield to talk about Israel and Rep. Ilhan Omar. This is a great wedge issue for the reactionaries and they’ve been building on and stressing the divisions within the Jewish community and between progressive Jews and other progressives for over a decade. Just to be clear: I stand with Bernie and Kamala on this issue and I #StandWithIlhan

We talked about campaigns and elections. I did some GOP-bashing but took some hope in the fact that Trump was elected over Cruzifer (Banning Muslims guy vs Carpet bombing Muslims guy).

We talked about the concerns of one community member who is dismayed about the Socialist trend in the Democratic party. We were all over the road on that one and I’m glad we have at least another 6 months to tighten that up before we do another 6 months of messaging before the IL Democratic primary. And then another 6 months to get mobilized for the 2020 Get Out The Vote campaign. We’re just getting started to #FuelTheBern

Nina Turner introduction speech for Sen. Bernie Sanders

Sunday March 3, 2019 Navy Pier – Chicago, IL

It’s wise to notice that the rock star qualities of the Bernie Sanders 2020 campaign have very little to do with his flashy style and smooth talk.

By himself, he could be mistaken for the crank hypes and confused repeaters distort him out to be. Surrounded by a million volunteers out of the gate and ten million dollars in mostly small ticket donations within the first week of #Bernie2020, this is something else. One man alone is a voice in the wilderness. A million people united at the very start is, at the very least, a campaign with legs. We call it the next step of a political revolution. In the ideal sense, it’s a movement to a more perfect union. In a practical sense, it’s a survival plan.

America now with memes for to re-educate at glorious Russian Troll Farms

Is good? Maybe no.

Greetings, comrades. You may already be serving Mother Russia and her stooge American infomercial con-artist President and Soviet Republican party while resisting.

Am sure? Is car working? It has wheels. It has brakes. But maybe defogger broken. Maybe cheap tires ready to peel off any instant.

But what about memes? Memes good. Facebook good. Twitter good. Is all very good. No? Maybe?

Some pro-Bernie sites and some pro-Hillary sites (neither actually connected to the public figures they champion nor connected to any current or upcoming election) are troll accounts designed to tear the Democratic party apart. Of course, we do enough infighting to do that by ourselves, but full-time pro and amateur trolls giving us metaphorical pointy sticks and knives to help us isn’t helpful to create positive outcomes.

Not sure what Russia’s endgame is, but they were playing the progressive and centrist factions and both parties off of each other in the last election cycle. I’m seeing signs that this is continuing to happen. There’s a virtual psychological ploy being used to encourage, by design sometimes, unwittingly sometimes, tribal gang wars within the progressive movement. We didn’t get Trump by accident. We’ve been walking this way since the Reagan Reaction. The Resistance needs a United Front or reactionaries will stack the courts and all the legitimate seats of power with their own lawless might makes right kind.
