My Experience With A Group Home in Arizona

No one would check into a group home just to write an article but since I was there and saw it all, why not?
I don't know anyone who says the words "group home" without shuddering a little bit inside. None of them are how a person should want to live. Most clients are people who have NOWHERE else to go and no one to help them, some because heartless family members don't realize the severity of the loneliness and neglect experienced in there by human beings struggling to feel control over their lives after an illness or accident. There is one in Phoenix where the owners bought it from some well meaning people and stripped anything good from it and replaced it with furniture that is painful and incompetent/unskilled help. I was unfortunately tricked into going to one of those instead of being able to go home by a "case manager" at Life Center of Paradise Valley physical rehabilitation center. A man who used to be the owner of the place now refers clients there. The staff is great at providing tiny meals and getting people in bed on time. Only one person who works there as a "care giver" speaks English and the other ONE care giver is there as a friend of the owner. Neither has a car and can drive to go get food, supplies, and incidentals like smoke alarm batteries. The beds have no mattresses, only box springs. Making old, broken, crippled bodies lie on the coil springs reinjures these clients every night. This is designed to make their recovery time last longer and therefore bring the owners more money in insurance and self pay. But it isn't good for the clients. The owners (the owner and his wife) are idiots who have no idea how to run a group home. They bought it as a business investment and so run it on a shoestring budget without any thought towards the comfort of clients. 
The owner walked into my room while I was naked and trying to get dressed and wouldn't leave while babbling and asking my about my "paperwork" as if I worked there and handled that. One of the care givers asked me later why I didn't call the police. 
The owner and his wife walked into the living room of the house one day, turned on what I can only think of as 'the African version of MTV',(so loud that two of the clients were practically crying while holding their hands over their ears) and started doing a somewhat sexually provocative dance, in the middle of the room, with no regard for the clients. This isn't good business practice or patient care. 
I was one of eight people there. My room was next to the washer and drier which sometimes were run at day or night, and had a smoke alarm with a burned out battery, chirping 24/7 and they expected me to sleep like that. 
I have tried to call there to get some of my property back and still haven't managed to get anyone to answer the phone. You tell me, does anyone deserve to have to live like that, especiall seniors, and at least one of them a veteran who should be at the V.A.?
They call themselves Sunnyside Assisted Living Home LLC,at 2615 E. Vista Drive, Phoenix, AZ 85032. 
Assisted living implies that nurses, competent care givers, and other staff are there to provide Long Term Care facility management instead of this bunch of crap. If you call the main number for contact at 480 264 6870, you get the previous owner, ROMAN (pronounced RO-MAUN) , and he is obviously still in place to give the place an semblance of respect that they don't deserve.
I was told (by Anne Marie at the "Living Center of Paradise Valley")that this place had physical therapy and should have known when I asked, that when I asked about that and Roman kept repeating the same mantra, "Sir, this is $800 a month and you won't find anything cheaper." and he wouldn't answer my question that I should have gone directly to home from the rehabilitation center. Anne Marie kept insisting that I needed something in the way of this group home, since my condo had stairs. This was stupid, as I climbed the stair with supervision 2 weeks later with minimal supervision. 
When I asked Roman how to contact the house directly he gave me the number (602)626-8257. and when I called there, I got an error recorded message that said, "The customer you are trying to call is not in service at this time."
I would like to add that Life Care Center of Paradise Valley and John C. Lincoln Hospital gave me the best of care considering my injury.

Clickbait advertising.
It isn't advertising, it is a jack on your serenity, and an OBSTRUCTION in your web experience. Pop up advertising on layers that open AFTER you have started reading the content of a page that you clicked on the link to read to begin with, are annoying;
A) because they distract you from the article that may or may not actually be there (the pages that had a link to a story that doesn't really exist are bait and switch type advertising and those kind of advertisers should be drawn and quartered) and really piss you off because B) the link that promised an intriguing story about a popular topic is NOT EVEN THERE, but after you read the first two words, a whole LAYER or advertising graphic pops up right in your line of sight and makes you mad. THEN, on top of that insult, as aggravating as someone who hits you over the head with a picket sign, and then says, "Made you look! Ha ha!" they have an insult at the bottom of the ad graphic that gives you two choices.
One says, "Yes, show me these wonderful offers" and the other says, "NO I want to be stupid and pass up all this amazing stuff."
Notice: That means if you don't browse their advertising that they consider you FUCKING STUPID!
And then the thing that will really piss you off is that if you click on the wrong part of that layer, and sometimes ANY PART OF THAT LAYER, it takes you to the advertising page for the layer graphic that your intentionally tried to TURN THE FUCK OFF!
Do advertising people think, that because in the fifties someone in advertising decided (never proven theory for many items except for a few) that ANNOYING JINGLES (not popup advertising that was made illegal and software made to prevent it) made you remember the name of a product (ON TV ADS, not the internet), that being annoying is a great way to sell things?
I guess so, and if you buy shit based on clickbait, then, I guess you are as gullible as the advertising people think you are.
Have a nice day.

The Difference Between Flawed and Wrong

This morning I am not in a good mood. This inspires me to write and I am trying for this not be just a rant but an informed decision on my part not to listen to bullshit. First, someone I considered a friend lied to me and tried to make up some scenario that was something that I knew was complete bullshit because they over reacted to something that happened earlier. So, then they tried to throw the MY RELIGION into it, as if Buddhists are supposed to be door mats for the rest of the world to walk on. Guess what - NOT.
Then, as I realized that I had misjudged someone on their intentions and relationship to me, I backed away from a relationship with someone that I thought was a friend for over a year. Weird because they seemed so normal previously. I refuse to allow myself to be dragged down mentally and emotionally by people who seem unstable.
THEN, someone who actually IS a dear friend of mine, had a meme posted that said we can't judge Hillary Clinton because like all of us she is 'flawed', as if we are talking about a work of art.
Let me explain the difference. A flaw is something that happens FROM OUTSIDE OF AN OBJECT to make them a certain way and is irreversible, as in a flaw on a gemstone. It is incapable of being repaired. 
Flawed? We are talking about a human being, not a gem stone. Please let me explain the difference in definition.
flaw: noun - a defect impairing legal soundness or validity.
You are picturing flawed as less than perfect but being WRONG means: not correct in action, judgment, opinion, method, etc., as a person; in error: 
When, as a person, you CHOOSE wrong policies over the public good and choose mentors who are war mongers and hedge fund managers who helped wreck us in the past. you aren't imperfect, you are WRONG and if you continue to choose to be wrong, you are willfully ignorant about the right things to do.
When a gemstone is flawed it can't be corrected but when a PERSON continues to CHOOSE TO be WRONG  "...not correct in action, judgment, opinion, method, etc., as a person; in error:", then they have the ability and the right to CHOOSE DIFFERENTLY and correct and change that "...action, judgement, opinion, method, etc.", and when someone doesn't choose to correct bad policy decisions made by her husband and instead CHOOSES to defend them, then they aren't flawed, THEY ARE WRONG. 
An opinion or decision, being objects, can be flawed but when a person chooses one of those things as a way to dictate the future and the future of their decisions, then, they are WRONG.

Feeding the Trolls

Normally, I am one of the people who says, "Don't Feed The Trolls", which means, don't bother to argue with people who only come online to piss you off. This is a different situation because this is a political troll.  If not corrected, some people might be influenced by their lies.
They are part of the 'legion' of trolls that work for David Brock and other political operatives that come on social media, open a fake profile to hide behind, and then post things to, as the term 'Political Troll' states, "...Their purpose is to distract from the real important issues that they are supposed to be dealing with and distracting voters and the news media away from primary scandals and real issues that are going on. Their stories are intended to anger or cause fear to sway voters, if nothing more than for short term public opinion and votes."
I will give you some of his Wiki profile:
"...David Brock (born November 2, 1962) is an American political operative, author, and commentator who founded the liberal blog Media Matters for America.[1] He has been described by Time magazine as “one of the most influential operatives in the Democratic Party.”
Later it says, "...The Nation has described Brock as a “conservative journalistic assassin turned progressive empire-builder”;[6] National Review has called him a “right-wing assassin turned left-wing assassin”;[7] and Politico has profiled him as a “former right-wing journalist-turned-pro-Clinton crusader.”
So, here goes:
This is the post that I read about in a meme form on Facebook, when I looked up Amy Ninetto at ,  what I found was an empty page, no pictures, no details, no comments including this one. as I can see readily it is one of David Brock's fake profiles he started to be able to troll our pages and make excuses for his right wing queen, Hillary Clinton.

To the Clintonistas who think they can a) switch candidates on us, as if we don't have a choice or enough brains to know that doesn't mean we're getting a good deal, b) force us out of an election process, c) purposely influence the media and trolls like this to ignore the issues and tell us to vote for them anyway because they threaten us with Donald J. Trump - I have some things to say.
1) WE are the people who vote by issues and your stance on issues will have to change if you expect us to vote for you, PERIOD.
2) This isn't about us not voting for you because of revenge for spitting in our faces and cheating us out of a fair election.
3) You may have scared the uniformed wusses in our party to vote for you despite your candidate being a war mongering liar who is an opportunist and an undercover Republican. Let me list for you a few things others have said about your meme, that sum up how I feel.

"...I was a little upset until I noticed this message was for "dems." The problem here is that most of us Bernie supporters weren't Democrats to start with and won't be switching over now. The DNC has screwed it's chances of picking up the independent voters who switched over for Bernie. #demexit is about to begin."   (I will mention here, as this commenter stated, the word "Dems" is a Republican slang term like "Libs or Libturds" which is what gave this troll away to begin with. The fake meme poster outed themselves as a troll right there.)

And another comment stated, "...rigged primaries, skewed debates, suppressed voters, turned a blind eye to fraud, and rewards dws (Debbie Wasserman Schultz who resigned because of corruption evidence and the impending scandal.) with a job well done. Sure, I'll throw my hands up and vote for her....NO. If this is what she's capable of without presidential power, what will happen with it?"

I will explain about your empty threat scare tactics, supposedly Trump and his agenda.
A)What good does it do to vote for a person who is more capable and ready of keeping us in a never ending war for profit, who we know is connected to the Military Industrial Complex through the most evil people in the world, the Carlyle Group and the Saudi and Israeli war machines?
B) What guarantees do you have that Clinton will follow through on the foreign relations with Mexico when she didn't bother to do anything about immigration reform in the entire almost eight years she has been Secretary of State and in charge of foreign relations?
C) How did Trump make you think he can change the nation and the Supreme Court on abortion or anything else that he rouses stupid people by talking about, when, NO ONE HAS in over fifty years? Hillary Clinton doesn't guarantee any better when she is cozied up to all the worst right wing monsters in American and foreign societies through her "foundation".
D) What does it matter that Trump might endorse more Scalia type right wing to the Supreme Court when Clinton actually picked a right wing Democrat, like herself, to be her Vice President? How do we know she won't she wants one to be, as was said about Sarah Palin, "A heartbeat away from being in charge of the entire American military."?

Now, the rest is pure hogwash. The fact that I have proven to myself already is that you are a David Brock/Hillary Campaign troll and this is what you said next, "I am not a real fan of Hillary, either, (Then why would you make a fake Facebook profile to influence us independent issue voters into voting for Hillary, TROLL?) but Trump is a national emergency."  The first half is laughable but the part about Trump - most of us have figured out that he is only on the stage, like you, to scare us into voting for Clinton, the fascist.

"...Sometimes you don't get to choose who you get into the lifeboat with. You just want someone who can row."
Let me please enlighten you;
A) this isn't a lifeboat in which I have no choice in getting in, and even then I can choose to drown rather than to die with a fool,
B) I want someone who can row, true that, but I want someone who rows in the CORRECT direction away from the disaster, not towards it. So take that shit and shove it back up your ass.

Let me give you a lesson in informed voters, we vote based on the issues and you seem to want US to ignore your candidate's stances on issues and vote for her because of A) she is our only hope against Trump and B) because of  Trump being a disaster.
You called everything we cherish unimportant and our voting for Independents a "protest" vote.
PLEASE! Let me correct you.

WE DO NOT VOTE FOR INDEPENDENTS LIKE JILL STEIN BECAUSE OF WHAT YOU AND YOUR PARTY DID TO US, WE VOTE FOR THEM BECAUSE THEY CARE AND WANT TO PUT INTO LEGISLATION THE ISSUES WE CARE ABOUT. THEIR STANCES ON THESE ISSUES ARE LIKE OURS. THAT IS WHY WE VOTE FOR THEM. CHANGE YOUR STANCE ON THE ISSUES (Which Secretary Clinton can't because she is beholding to investors, in both, her campaign and the Clinton Foundation, and because her voting record already shows that she doesn't care about our issues, and so won't do anything about them, no matter what she lies about and says from the podium.) OR EXPECT TO BE IGNORED.

(There I said it, even if it was to a fake meme from a fake profile written by a fake person who will champion any position for the right price.)

Moral Compass - Left, Right, and Centrist

This morning I see some blogger trying to be kind by calling the right wing Democrat pick by Hillary Clinton, Tim Kaine, a centrist. Let me explain to those who don't know. It is really easy to see who is centrist or not, real centrists believe in reality and facts, nothing more. Atheists are centrists, also. When one religion over another tries to tell a centrist that their religion (based on mythology) is the "only" or "right" one because of nonsense on top of nonsense comments about mythical people or fables, they politely let them know that they don't believe in any of them, including Satanism that is merely a branch of Middle Eastern religious mythology (Jewish, Christian, and Islamic), constructed mostly on selfish desires.
For instance, Tim Kaine, who has always been noted for taking on a corporatist/fascist (I will mention here that corporatism and fascism are the same thing for anyone who didn't know) Republican style - calling for deregulation of safety concerns and most ethics, all the time in his career, IS NOT centrist.
Calling a war hawk, corporatatist/fascist who is trying to get elected based on being female, having political policy experience, and having lots of experience being on the wrong side of history, repeatedly, who is also married to the biggest undercover Republican that we ever had in the White House. ... A CENTRIST (!!!) is like saying the boat tour at Niagara Falls is 'kind of misty' because of the humidity. There is a reason everyone on the boat wears rain gear and some people need oxygen  masks.

You see there is a reason for a two party system. ONE party is supposed to be liberal/progressive, to use both descriptions. The other is supposed to be conservative/regressive.
Just because someone runs for office under the liberal/progressive ticket doesn't make them voting for conservative/regressive stances on all issues, a "centrist" that makes them conservative/regressive. The same is true of someone who runs under the conservative party banner and adopts mostly progressive ideas. They jumped ship, not compromised. For instance, abortion was decided long ago but some bring up arguments everyday as if somehow they will find some new excuse to over rule the majority. Some politicians say that they are for some issues and policies to get elected and then don't vote the way they said during elections, which is not  misleading, it is LYING, and they all need to be confronted on that corruption.
Believing the idea that we all should believe that tree hugging, sunshine, lollipops, cotton candy, and rainbow colored unicorns are things that we all need to champion in our own lives - is LEFT of center. (I am all for animal rights for your pets but animals we raise for food aren't in that category, so, grow up past a 5 year old mentality and get over it.) Extreme left/liberal people who are like I just described are as disgusting, if not more so - to true centrists - as are Fascist/Right Wing/Conservative types. (We don't need to save the planet, we need to save ourselves. Everything is connected and when we destroy any of it, human beings will eventually suffer.)
Centrists are not concerned with any of most issues demanded by either side.
THE MOST SIMPLE way of defining it is this, "If it works in your life and experience and makes perfect sense with your critical thinking research of the issue, then it is good. If not, it isn't really an issue and so it isn't worth discussing except to point out where they are wrong, periodically. Those periodic times happen when something stupid "this way comes" into the centrist's life, effecting him/her negatively.
Believing that nothing matters except for businesses and your own circle of family and friends, that corporations are people, that the fascist government dictators are supposed be respected and saluted while doing something completely wrong, and that biblical fantasy mythology is real, is conservative/regressive. (It didn't used to be. I grew up around people like Ike Eisenhower and Barry Goldwater, who was ignorant on racial issues but compassionate on many others.)
Seeing facts, as in scientific facts, and everything that you can prove and know to be good, including passion and equality for all human beings is CENTRIST so, don't calls fascism and it's supporters CENTRIST because that would be a big compliment to them and an honor that they don't deserve, along with being a extreme lie and an EXTREME insult to actual Centrists.
And, in summation, believing in conflicting right and left ideologies because of the notion that you have to respect both sides of any beliefs is politically correct, isn't centrist, that is just delusionally confused and ignorant. Black isn't white and white isn't black and trying to call them both shades of grey isn't being cooperative, it is just f**king stupid! Being wrong based on lack of information coupled with wishful thinking and cultural conditioning is just wrong, not your opinion.

Is Anyone Really Surprised?

When I read things like this, there is a mixture of feelings, from disgust and resentment, to confusion and having to realize that I just don't want to believe that my vote doesn't count when certain people decide to take over our country. They did the same in 2000 and 2004 and it is the same crooked players at work.
To those of you who said to me and everyone who realized this, "Oh, you are being unrealistic, you just lost." I have two words. You know what they are.
To anyone who is surprised or even confused at learning that the DNC and especially DWS, cheated and rigged the election, despite the fact that the majority of voters have been saying exactly that for about 9 months, this is what being in denial gets you.
This is the only way a flip flopping, lying, corporate stooge, undercover Republican. who considers a war criminal like Henry Kissinger and a hedge fund manager, Madeleine Albright, her mentors - can possibly win against a peace loving, consistent on all issues, caring about all people type, real American.
I have always seen the cut of her cloth. She is still trying to say that; a) the repeal of Glass/Steagall that caused our economic crisis later on, b) the enactment of free trade agreements, especially like NAFTA that sent our factory jobs over seas and to Mexico and destroyed our factory base (in order to lose our economic superiority and especially hurt the minority community, causing many to enlist in our volunteer army, which was the purpose all along.), and c) the sentencing reform act, that unfairly sentenced one time drug abusers and especially black males, into prison for decades, which also led to our mass incarceration problems (in order to support "for profit prisons) were NOT massively bad ideas caused by her husband, Bill Clinton, and her not admitting that any of this was wrong, especially since she doesn't even understand or find any wrong in, Citizens United, then, Hillary Clinton is a big part of what is wrong in this country and definitely isn't someone who should be in ANY form of government , let alone an extremely influential power situation.
To those of you who are still in denial and trying to blame this on the media, I say, "Please wake the fuck up and smell the coffee!"
This morning a friend of mine said he had given up on Bernie and was going to vote for Hillary, because like Benghazi was months ago, TRUMP. Those of you who haven't been aware, he is a clown who has been put into place, not to win, but the crash the Republican Party into their coffin with a resounding thud, just like he has, and was never going to win.
Listing his future advisers to explain your wishy-washy-ness (like the majority of the Bush administration's cronies), is like saying, "Well if unicorns start flying around, then we will have to worry that horny horse shit is going to start falling on us!"
It isn't going to happen, it never was, he was put in place to scare people into voting for Hillary and many of you fell for it. When even the Bush family, the biggest corporate whore, war mongering group of psychopaths, are endorsing her, then you really should know that fix was in LONG AGO, only this time we were watching for it and they got caught.
The fact that the party named after democracy, undermined democracy, makes me sick.

Why The Federal Reserve Is Nothing But A Scam

I will begin this with a video that I am writing this, in reaction to, not against, because it speaks the absolute truth that I have been trying to tell people for years. They look at me like they think it is a complicated conspiracy theory.

I hope everyone is paying attention to every word of this. This guy is speaking the truth in public.
I will be surprised if someone hasn't shot him. Two presidents, John F. Kennedy and Abraham Lincoln said these things and tried to enact legislation to get rid of these "central banks" that have the audacity to call themselves "The Federal Reserve" in the United States. We know how they both ended up immediately afterwards.
The idea that this is a conspiracy theory is propaganda and a lie itself. This shows someone from the banking industry explaining why the system that creates poverty and keeps it that way for their own profit is truly at fault for doing what they have been doing since Eisenhower left office. They create money for some that doesn't really have anything backing it and then when they fall short (when people demand their real value) they take it out of taxpayers funds and act like that is "how democratic capitalism works".
(I want to mention here that the politicians who scream about the "free market regulating itself" don't tell you this part on purpose, they are LYING to cover the fact that the system that they call democratic capitalism, which was developed by the same people who want us to believe that the bible is 100 percent accurate, only works on paper.
The problem for them is that the American people and people around the world have woken up and are demanding this be changed. They try to demonize 'actual free market capitalism', which creates prosperity for all, by calling it socialism, because America has "ruling class families" that aren't satisfied with being on the same level with everyone else and demand, selfishly that they have everyone else's share. Their families were built on slavery and criminal activity, like bootlegging and smuggling.)
The recession in 2008 wasn't an anomaly, it was a repeated planned action that we noticed, because the media reported it like they have been manipulated and repressed from doing before.  That is actually how the central banks work and how they have been working since their inception, it was just that this time WE NOTICED because of two things, A) this time more people were involved and got hurt, making it more obvious, and B) people no long believe this is the greatest country in the world and that everything is so 'star spangled wonderful' here, when people are stealing from us to keep from admitting to the rich that they gambled all their money away at the casino on Wall Street.

My Review Of LA Fitness On Bell Road in Glendale

Let me preface this with, "I am probably not considered normal for a gym member."  I used to lift weights with serious body builders and power lifters, BUT, can't do everything I did anymore because of an injury coupled with my age (stuff doesn't heal like it used to). I am used to gyms with weights and benches and guys, with the exception of a few ladies, where they get done WHILE having a conversation (not standing around even when exercising or stopping to talk) and so I am spoiled. I should mention here that many big public "membership" commercial gyms are the same way. I am used to going in, getting my routine done, then relax and chill out in the sauna afterwards. I guess I have a certain idea of what a gym is. It isn't a place to visit, pickup someone, hang out talking for hours, or do anything but a planned set of exercises and get a shower and go home. I listen to music without letting it interrupt my workout. I don't carry my cell phone with me while working out.
I am somewhat "disgruntled" and I know it, because,... I am one of the castaways from the merger/sell out of 24 Hour Fitness with LA Fitness.
We were told nothing would change. Then they changed our hours. Then they closed our gym. Those are big monumental changes. That also means we were lied to. We had a nice gym that was kind of crowded during certain hours but you didn't have to go during the busy time because they were open 24 hours. I LIKED THAT.
I have to drive only about a mile further, BUT, now there are two gyms worth of people crammed into one gym because you can't come in late, so they are all in each other's way most of the afternoon/evening. There is no time limit on equipment as there is in many gyms, so there are people there who 1) don't really come to exercise (they pick one machine or piece of equipment and set it with almost no weight and use it for hours - because they think not really exercising or pretending to try is cool, while everyone else waits to use that machine) , 2) can't really exercise because they are too out of shape and need to stop eating as much as well as work their way up by riding a bicycle or go on the lifecycle or eliptical (cardio) before using weight machines, or 3) people who are new to exercise and can't understand that your phone/mp3 player adjustments shouldn't interrupt your machine usage time WHILE PEOPLE ARE WAITING IN LINE.
Some people are just selfish pigs, then you have the ignorant and loud people (usually the same egomaniacs) who have to yell at each other from one to two feet away like someone who is overly intoxicated, partially deaf, or just stupid. NO matter what the reason it is just rude, not cool. Most serious people doing exercise like to concentrate, not listen to someone make noise unnecessarily, and we know they are insecure and crave attention, SO,  they should go to a bar. Bars are full of people like that.
Some people can easily see that they have a whole place full of equipment but they would rather exercise on the stairs, the middle of the aisle where everyone is trying to walk. or use the machines as a gathering/chatting place/ or leaning post/stool OR to do calisthenics that they should actually be doing at home - while people wait in line to get done with their exercise routine. They actually have 2 large mats at this gym, in areas big enough for everyone who wants to do calisthenics to do so, but they would rather impress people by stopping their routine, while blocking the floor area walkway, and taking time away from using the machine we are all waiting for. This type also, usually spends about a half hour to 45 minutes 'admiring themselves in the mirror' in the locker room, also.
I know this is hard to believe but, ...
The really stupid people use a blow dryer meant for people's hair to dry off instead of using a towel. (What an a**hole!) It causes their own personal flood zone on the floor that all of us have to walk on, and wastes time, making excessive noise.
I like to relax when I get through working out, but there is always someone in the spa area who either thinks the spa is for exercising (when there is a whole gym out there), making all the wood benches creak and groan constantly or someone listening to music that doesn't seem to realize the rest of us can't hear it, and that his/her drumming on the wood benches (while trying to relax in the heat) is vibrating through everyone else's butt and feet and it isn't musical, it is just AGGRAVATING AND ANNOYING!
A gym isn't where people are supposed to go to hook up - it is where you go to exercise and go home. If you meet someone of the opposite sex or want to stand/sit around bulls**ting, go to Starbucks or a singles bar, they are designed for that purpose.
I have been to U-Fit and one of the best things they have there is their target training exercise room with a timer that tells you to move on. The time limit on machines (not free weights) in most gyms, is supposed to be 20 MINUTES, MAXIMUM. That doesn't mean that you are supposed to show up with a group of 3 to four people and monopolize the machines/weights (The dumbass excuse, "But we each get twenty minutes, right?"), that is bullying and ego maniacal 'Only Guy On Earth Syndrome'.
And while I am on the subject of exercise machine etiquette, if you walk away from a machine for several minutes, then, you can't walk up to whoever is actually trying to work out and go home, and say, "I was using that," because OBVIOUSLY, you weren't, you were standing around bull**ting or using other equipment, which means you moved on. Here is the bottom line on that, ...
etc. don't save your place on a machine you already left. Just like in the supermarket, the people who think putting their cart in line, telling the person behind them to save their place, while they finish their shopping, is waiting their turn, and IT ISN'T, YOU SELFISH A**HOLE!
But LA Fitness wants to market themselves as a meeting place (Meat Market) where they have classes and personalized trainers for a fee, and everyone else is on their own with no rules or discipline. Therefore, it has become a point of interest for the rude and selfish egomaniacs.
ONE MORE THING, When you go to a gym, the more noise you make while exercising is annoying, there is a thing called concentration and if you are groaning, screaming, moaning, or yelling at your friends or the pain of trying to exercise with too much weight, there is no one keeping score, so you don't extra "exercise points" or sound like someone who accomplished something/is trying harder, You are merely an obviously insecure person, like most loud people, begging for attention. STFU!
And we pay for the privilege to be treated like this! (SMH) And whistling in the locker room because you never went to gym class in school, and are trying to act like you aren't nervous getting undressed/naked in front of other men/women is REALLY OBVIOUS as well as annoying. Are you that overjoyed to see another person naked? IF NOT, STFU, PLEASE!

My Reaction To the Recent Orlando Shootings

I can understand two things about this. Some people are going to say that guns are the problem but I believe that is a simplification of the truth. I never thought I would say this but in that instance, the gun used was not the problem, the shooter was.
The problem for me is simply this, discrimination is discrimination. Bigotry, even wrapped in prayer and a stack of bibles, is still bigotry. The fact that religious and political leaders use hate speech to demonize an enemy that they have scapegoated, is right in line with the agenda of any type of fascist right wing society. Anyone who continues to do that, in my opinion, should be rounded up and charged with conspiring to commit hate crimes and being complicit in homicide previous to the fact and therefore instigating murder. When they are all sitting in jail and facing public ridicule while being told by a judge that they are just as guilty as any other accomplice in the killings, legally, then, and only then will this kind of stuff stop, even if only temporarily.

When one uses critical thinking and actually studies fascism and authoritarian rule, we see that they are the same thing. They are used by two main factions, religion and government.

The fourteen defining characteristics of fascism can be found here:

I dare anyone of them to find one that they haven't seen used in our society at present. The ones I am pointing at presently are numbers 2, 3, and 8.

They are stated as; "...2. Disdain for the Recognition of Human Rights - Because of fear of enemies and the need for security, the people in fascist regimes are persuaded that human rights can be ignored in certain cases because of "need." The people tend to look the other way or even approve of torture, summary executions, assassinations, long incarcerations of prisoners, etc.

3. Identification of Enemies/Scapegoats as a Unifying Cause - The people are rallied into a unifying patriotic frenzy over the need to eliminate a perceived common threat or foe: racial , ethnic or religious minorities; liberals; communists; socialists, terrorists, etc.

8. Religion and Government are Intertwined - Governments in fascist nations tend to use the most common religion in the nation as a tool to manipulate public opinion. Religious rhetoric and terminology is common from government leaders, even when the major tenets of the religion are diametrically opposed to the government's policies or actions."

Donald Trump is being blamed for "using these things to manipulate the uninformed voter who runs on fear and hate" but Donald Trump's campaign is just the symptom of the disease. This infection has been spread by politicians and religious leaders for power over people, membership insurance, and votes since men first made public speeches. The problem is our society and the people who run it. The idea that one guy is the problem makes me laugh. He is not the ideology and that started LONG before. When racism becomes a national health problem like any other mental delusion, and people are treated for it, several things will happen. Some people will be forced to learn that hate isn't a relevant force to men who can use dialogue and intelligence. Others will be put in some form of rehab until they realize that wanting to be superior to other humans is a myth, while others will eventually be given up on, as if rehabilitation is impossible for them - and they will then be institutionalized to protect society. I don't understand why this hasn't happened here in the U.S. yet.

This idea isn't extreme or fantastic, it is already in place in several countries. People need to come together as one and that means the ideas of exclusivity and superiority have to be deprogrammed from us. This isn't a request or ideal, it is an imperative if our society is going to survive. We, as a society, used to believe that burning witches was necessary, also. There has always been an enemy or enemies to be the scapegoats. The fact that there are people who willingly accept that in order to feel better about themselves, shows that our society and especially the delusionally religious, are sick and need professional help.

Part of the Orlando situation that I haven't heard anyone mention is that the police hesitated because mainly, some of them weren't anxious to save the members of the public that were being shot and bleeding to death, because they have been taught that those people are "sinners or evil" and that means they are looked at by many as "deserving the treatment they get" from a self righteous nutcase. I am not assigning blame, I am merely stating the logical diagnosis of this problem.

My Letter to President Obama 05/11/2016

I will give you an example. Henry Kissinger's quote released by Wikileaks, "The illegal we do immediately; the unconstitutional takes a little longer," likely brought a smile to his legions of elite media, government, corporate and high society admirers. .
I grew up during the Vietnam era. You are honoring the "Butcher of Cambodia" and my respect for you just went down by several notches. You should have asked Joe Biden, not Hillary Clinton, on who to trust and listen to. This black mark will follow your administration's legacy forever. What's next? Are you going to honor Dick Cheney? How about Donald Rumsfeld? We could also see if there are any Nazis left in Columbia or Brazil to let you honor them, also. I want to tell you something. When I saw you walking around the White House on the news with George W. Bush, my heart sank because I could see on your face in those photographs that you were listening. He is a master of lies and playing stupid. He learned that from his father, the master of ceremonies at the Carlyle Group round table of defense contractors and basically what we call the Military Industrial Complex, who was another con man who ruled the world through the military. The day G.W. Bush, his son, got up at the podium on television and said, 'You can't fight terrorism with conventional warfare!" and then set about getting congress to let him lie us into two wars by lying to them, I knew that sometimes the president's job is to be the front man for criminals, if he chooses to. You aren't part of that administration (LBJ through Nixon) and the idea that war for profit while sending young men and women into a meat grinder when technology like you have used instead of boots on the ground, works just fine.
One of the main reasons I hate Hillary Clinton now, is the people she chooses to hang out with.  One of them is Henry Kissinger and the other Madeleine Albright. She takes advice from the former on being Secretary of State and from the latter on financial things. It should have been the opposite since Kissinger is highly invested (corruption wise) in both the Military Industrial Complex and Israel. Quit sending them millions of dollars a day and see what happens over there. You are screwing the American people on the advice of a war criminal and letting Wall Street run amok based on advice from a hedge fund manager. You are an extreme disappointment to me and millions of Americans who defended you, as we did Bill Clinton, when he signed our futures away to Wall Street and foreign labor through NAFTA and the repeal of Glass Steagall.
If you are another Republican in sheep’s clothing then I am also disgusted in myself for not seeing it coming.
Goodbye, Mr. Sellout.
Now I feel stupid for voting for you twice.

Let's Call It What It Is, PLEASE!

I want to preface this by saying I wrote this as a response to the inane raving article written by Chez Pazienza at
I posted a comment twice as long as this and they won't allow anything I write on this website, evidently because my ArizonaMildman comment doesn't appear there.
"I believe this incident was staged because I have realized that Clintons use the same Karl Rove style dirty tricks that all Republicans do, by hiring their same campaign strategists and propagandists, like David Brock, who says he will deliver the election for Clinton. If you don't believe he said that, here: That is why I think of them as Republicans. They can't win if they don't cheat. The sign that man was holding at the Clinton rally was about the never ending war that the Clinton regime wants us thrown into against our wills - to help the media and the Military Industrial Complex make huge profits but I see the author of this post doesn't mention one word about the issues in this article. 
You want expletives? Good, here is one for you. I call BULLSHIT on this entire article and the never ending VICTIM SCENARIO that all the "Clinton-istas", as many of the mainstream media has dubbed them, like this blogger is obviously, keep trying to paint the primary with. 
One more angry expletive remark is that Clinton isn't being targeted because she is either a woman, a victim, weak, or someone precious, she is being outed for being what she is, an angry, deceptive, evasive, lying asshole and a war hawk who converses with, regularly, and admires Henry Kissinger (Who most people who were alive in that time period, consider a worse war criminal than Dick Cheney, and she has become an oligarch who has turned her political career from being a Goldwater bigot into a high finance "foundation" owner, whose stance on Wall Street criminals is to hang out with them, including Madeleine Albright who is now a hedge fund manager. 
Then there is her daughter who is already making millions for being born a Clinton (Yeah, she is your average kid next door, right.). 
Put all that in your article next time for some reality check talking points."

Final point here, they "edited out" my comment since it would have been all the truth and would have made their victim narrative sound as silly and immature sounding as it is.

"A Man Can’t Ride You Unless Your Back Is Bent"

Some people seem upset with me because I care about the political spectrum in this country. I don't really care about politicians or their business ventures that much, I care about people and our future. That is what is at stake. When I hear someone complaining about the constant politi-speak going on on Facebook, I want to ask if they care about the future of this country.
As long as no one discusses the issues, not the candidates and what they and their families wear, and such, we will never learn. I turned my television off years ago and when Pew Institute did a study, a few years back, on "Knowledge of American Issues", I took the test of over a hundred questions, I got 98 percent correct. They stated that I knew more than 68 percent of Americans about the real issues.
As long as the popular vote doesn't matter in Elections, over half of the eligible voters don't bother BECAUSE, it isn't just a presumption - THAT ACTUALLY MEANS it is rigged towards party insiders and people with money and power. Poor people, as has been mentioned recently, don't turn out to vote because they don't believe in a system that is rigged and gives them the candidate that they know they voted against, no matter how many of them turn out.
The electoral college system was developed by the same people who thought only rich white land owners were "knowledgeable enough" to have a say, because they KNEW HOW the country should be run.
I have NEVER in my life, seen a petition that was spread by the people of the United States to actually use the popular vote in all elections, Federal and State because, in my opinion, some people think those guys who rigged the electoral college was correct and if we actually did what the people want, we would screw things up.
That means that the majority of people in the United States believe that the majority of people in the United States are too stupid to know what is right. (Including themselves.)
I don't share that opinion. I remember when Carl Sagan produced the series "Cosmos" the first time. None of the commercial channels thought the American public enjoyed real information like that and would prefer sitcoms and other useless, mindless entertainment with no educational value whatsoever.
The only stations that broadcast it were PBS and all the commercial stations ratings took a big hit because the majority of television viewers were watching PBS that night because they wanted to learn everything the head of the Physics Department of Cornell University could teach us. 
EVERYONE - including the television producers, learned several intelligent thought provoking lessons.
If it actually hurts your brain to think and discover new ideas then turn all those posts off so you won't have to, and you can enjoy being part of the people who follow blindly and never decide a single thing about your own future. Evidently you don't care.

The Arizona Right Wing Propaganda Press

I used to wonder why so many people voted for and claimed to be conservatives in Arizona. I also remember the tag line from the movie "Brave New World" which states that he who controls information controls the world. I want you to adjust your thinking here a minute.  Imagine what it would be like if you, like a jury in a court, after hearing something a lawyer or witness that was perjuring themselves said, and then being told by the judge that you are to disregard that last statement. What is I could prove to you that a monopoly bent on serving up fresh propaganda gives you your daily news? Would you listen? Could you actually listen to something said at this and ask yourself to disregard everything they say? 
Here is the truth about Arizona Newspapers. 

The Arizona Republic is a daily newspaper which became the largest in Arizona and is published in Phoenix, AZ. 

  1. It was established May 19, 1890,  and run by Dwight B. Heard, under the name The Arizona Republican. Heard continued running the paper, while being a Phoenix land and cattle baron, from 1912 until he died in 1929.
  2. The paper was then run by two of its top executives, Charles Stauffer and W. Wesley Knorpp. 
  3. Stauffer and Knorpp changed the newspaper's name to The Arizona Republic in 1930. 
  4. Stauffer and Knorpp also had bought the rival Phoenix Evening Gazette and Phoenix Weekly Gazette, later known as The Phoenix Gazette and the Arizona Business Gazette. 
  5. It was bought by Midwestern newspaper magnate Eugene C. Pulliam in 1946.
  6. This paper was ranked tenth in U.S. daily newspapers by circulation in 2007.
Like News Corps, the conglomerate news agency owned by Rupert Murdoch, Gannett controls a huge amount of the News Businesses. It overshadows News Corps in the amount of news it "oversees". It is the largest newspaper holding company in the United States. It's listing of holdings is listed at:  and I will warn you, you are going to be reading awhile. Does being the most widely circulated news make it more accurate. Not according to the tabloid news companies like News Corps.

[edit]< From Wikipedia at


Pulliam era

Pulliam, who bought the two Gazettes as well as the Republic, ran all three 
newspapers until his death in 1975 at the age of 86. A strong period of growth 
came under Pulliam, who imprinted the newspaper with his conservative brand 
of politics and his drive for civic leadership. Pulliam was considered one of the 
influential business leaders who created the modern Phoenix area as it is known
Pulliam's holding company, Central Newspapers, Inc., as led by Pulliam's widow 
and son, assumed operation of the Republic/Gazette family of papers upon the 
elder Pulliam's death. The Phoenix Gazette was closed in 1997 and its staff 
merged with that of the Republic. The Arizona Business Gazette is still published
to this day.
In 1998, a weekly section geared towards college students, "The Rep", went into
circulation. Specialized content is also available in the local sections produced for
many of the different cities and suburbs that make up the Phoenix metropolitan 

[edit]Gannett purchase

Central Newspapers was purchased by Gannett in 2000, bringing it into common 
ownership with USA Today and the local PhoenixNBC television affiliate, KPNX
The Republic and KPNX combine their forces to produce their common local news
website, It is the most-visited site in the state of Arizona 
and is among the most-trafficked newspaper websites in the U.S.  ..."
Now, let's suppose some cosmic judge told us to disregard everything we heard 
from a corporate monopolized news organisation and think for yourselves. ..."
Now, let's look at the word MONOPOLY and I don't mean the game from Parker 
Brothers. Let's look first at the criticisms of the game Monopoly. Again from 
Wikipedia:  "...Wired magazine believes Monopoly is a poorly designed game. 
Former Wall Streeter Derk Solko explains, "Monopoly has you grinding your oppo-
nents into dust. It's a very negative experience. It's all about cackling when your
opponent lands on your space and you get to take all their money." 
Most of the 3 to 4 hour average playing time is spent waiting for other players 
to play their turn. Board game enthusiasts disparagingly call this a "roll your dice,
move your mice" format. ..."
So, even the game monopoly is about learning to be greedy, selfish, and vindictive
which is why monopolies are supposed to  be ILLEGAL in the United States. 
The legal term is defined as:
"...1. exclusive control of a commodity or service in a particular market, or a control that makes possible the manipulation of prices. Compare duopoly, oligopoly.
2. an exclusive privilege to carry on a business, traffic, or service, granted by a government.
3. the exclusive possession or control of something.
4. something that is the subject of such control, as a commodity or service.
5. a company or group that has such control. ..."
So, you tell me, should we disregard everything they tell us or maybe the ques-
tion that is more pertinent should be, "CAN YOU disregard the statement?" con-
sidering it came from a biased source?
If you can, keep reading. If you can't then you need to read this: Blocks To

An Epiphany Wrapped In Disappointment (SMH)

I am finally, like several people I know, disillusioned. I say that as I realize I have been fighting a good fight in my mind and expecting change when all I got was eight years of smoke and mirrors. I am not upset with Barack Obama because he is black. Those people STILL deserve to be living in a cave or under a rock.
I am upset because he implied that he really wanted things to change. He got all the incremental things that are just realistic, like the ACA implemented. He got some things done on evolution of thinking started that allowed for Gay Marriage. He has been really good at speaking about healthy intelligent educational opportunities for those who need it. He has helped the "judgement free" poor people harder for the banks and other financial predators to virtually destroy. Those things and his wife's health for children initiatives will go down as shining achievements.
He can't change congress and we are watching this year, how they have inserted themselves through corruption and malfeasance, election fraud, bold faced election tampering and voter machine hacking, into the biggest control position in history in the U.S., congress. That will be material for a whole different article.
Last year before this election sequence, I would have disagreed with anyone saying that Barack Obama was Republican Lite. I was expecting him to do some really "down with the people" things the way Bernie wants to do, and I realized it is NEVER going to happen. The Republicans in congress have taken on the role/persona of being the bad guys but they are all working together. This whole "screw the tax payers for/to our benefit" thing going on in D.C. is in every chamber, oval office to the Supreme Court, and it is powered by big money interests, and THAT is the great American problem.
Throwing us a bone that is purely superficial is NOT what the Democratic Party is supposed to be. When he came in asking for change, then has been changing shit that doesn't matter, isn't really what I expected, either. Pragmatic to these people (The catchword they keep using to describe slow change.) doesn't mean what they think it means.
What the mood is saying is, "We screwed you and put you between a rock and a hard place and then made YOU, the American Tax Payer, pay to fix the things we screwed up so we could get paid.
What Republicans run on are matters that are either already decided or insignificant to anything in reality. They might as well be saying, "We want to make it a law that all people bathe with lye soap! That is the only way people who are truly spiritual and conservative/Republicans should smell. We are presently in congress, wasting the time of the taxpayers, and have written and act like we we are trying to enact legislation to return us to the days of lye soap!" Meanwhile, a certain portion of the country that doesn't know anything but that their friends or relatives told them they were "conservatives, religious, and Republicans", as if those things were genetic and unavoidable, jumps up and down cheering, only pausing to drag their knuckles, metaphorically speaking, like a tie to an ancient past that never has existed and logically never will be - as long as anyone with brains can muster one last sensible argument.
Those people have developed a word to use that means it is OKAY FOR ME to act anyone I want because I have a) Jeebus, b) the 'gubment', or c) my community, on my side. That is the Republican excuse, as I am going to call it from now on.
I recently heard several people who have bought into the whole Republican Lite ideals expressed by the "Clintonistas". (I say this collectively since they have shown they think alike and have an idea how this "democracy" for the Oligarchy should work.) Bill Clinton very clandestinely put the repeal of Glass/Steagall which helped destroy our economy, the implementation of NAFTA, which helped destroy our factory base, and opened the door to Republicans, as well as Democrats, using money from special interests in place. Basically, behind our backs with no media scrutiny or public fanfare of any kind, turned the Democratic Party into Republican lite and Barack, after coming to Washington, fell in line.
I miss the vision I had of the young African American crusader who was going to change us but now that he has really just jumped right into bed with the Clintons, The DNC, and Debbie Wasserman Schultz (No lite about her, she is PURE Republican while calling herself a Democrat just to get paid, because, well, evidently the opportunities in the GOP are limited for women.)
They have been throwing around this word I don't like, which is like saying "fecal matter" when 'shit' would have sufficed, and I am tired of it. The word is "PRAGMATIC".
They might as well be saying, "Change - which we will let occur, SOME DAY, after we think about this for A REALLY LONG TIME (indefinitely), LIKE YOU HAVEN'T BEEN WAITING SINCE 1964 FOR EQUALITY AND THE 1950s FOR THE CHANGE WE WERE PROMISED (After we had already tightened our belts BECAUSE OF being patriotic through WWI, WWII ,and the Korean War), and pick EVERYTHING to pieces over fears that (I don't know, maybe JEEBUS wouldn't like it, yeah, that sounds good!) when in reality, the problem is merely that, it might actually work (OMG!) and people might actually achieve ACTUAL equal opportunities."
There are several definitions, but "treating historical phenomena with special reference to their causes, antecedent conditions, and results", and "of or relating to the affairs of state or community." are what they seem to be trying to tell us it means.
But the archaic versions of the word is what they are doing: "busy; active.
officious; meddlesome; interfering" and "dogmatic; opinionated" as well as "an officious or meddlesome person" is what they are using it to do.
What they are saying, in other words, is using much thought to bring about change, only if historically significant, while what we want isn't radical, it is realistic, and if we ever want to stop being screwed over by the (I even have to use this word, since the rednecks always blame the wrong people in it saying, "GUBMINT") (all three branches of the fed and all branches of state) government.
I would almost contend that Fox News isn't a antecedent of the government and an instrument which is against the White House, as it is portrayed, but another tool, poised to play devils advocate in several non-important arguments, in order to placate and distract us, like most churches, and professional sports are put in place to do.

The Progressive Party Day One

What I am calling for today is a new party, conceived in the original intention of the founding fathers, except not owning slaves and not deciding only rich white land owners vote. Shall we say, for the sake of my argument, an ACTUAL DEMOCRATIC PARTY, but since that name has already been copyrighted by people who now seem to be moving towards the same fascism which is disturbingly familiar in the hearts and minds of Republican candidates for the past 20 years, I am calling for a new party. Right now there is a split between progressives and Democrats. All this need for a party split is going to change the face of politics.
The Clinton-ese establishment DINOs, (Democrats in name only) have become a blue coated branch of the right wing. Basically, they are undercover Republicans and many of them have been exactly that since the sixties and only used the name to give us the illusion of caring about the middle class and not being racist.

I think they actually have deluded themselves into believing having two parties on the same side of ideological thinking is a democracy BUT those of us who view pro-corporate policies for the dictionary version of corporatism: ( corporatism  [kawr-puh-ruh-tiz-uh m, -pruh-tiz-]  noun 1.  the principles, doctrine, or system of corporative organization of a political unit, as a city or state.  ) don't want that as our version of democracy. (democracy [dih-mok-ruh-see] noun 1. government by the people; a form of government in which the supreme power is vested in the people and exercised directly by them or by their elected agents under a free electoral system.)
You see, people who are democratic believe in actual government for the people (and that means ALL of the people) and not for the corporative powers because that word in itself means the same thing as fascism. (fascism [fash-iz-uh m] noun  1. a governmental system led by a dictator having complete power, forcibly suppressing opposition and criticism, regimenting all industry, commerce, etc., and emphasizing an aggressive nationalism and often racism.) That definition, in thinking about it, is what some people call communism and uninformed people on the right now believe that's Democratic socialism means, even though it is the opposite.
So in order to maintain a fascist state, one must be a dictator, not a governing servant of the people, although no fascist state comes right out and says that's what they are. When I was a kid, I was told one of the biggest differences between wonderful old U.S.A. and the other countries is that we have "free elections" and other more communist countries had "controlled elections" where the people didn't really have a say it in who won. Then I got to be around 13 years old and asked a pertinent question about "the electoral college" when I was being taught about that. I asked my 'Social Studies' teacher, "Do the electoral candidates necessarily have to vote the way the people of their district vote?" and I was told, "No, they don't. They can vote however they want."  That is number one on my list of "points of corruption" in the system.
Then there are Political Action Committees or PACs as they are referred to. My question is, why are these legal and not regulated the way they should be? And now there are PACs and SuperPACs so anyone who wants to start one can go to the election commission and start one. Stephen Colbert proved that a few years ago when he started one. It is illegal to bribe a government official. But any special interest, private citizen, corporation lobbyist, etc. can go to a PAC and tell them that if your elected official/officials don't vote the way I want, I won't donate this suitcase full of money to their campaign.
Soft money contributions are now unlimited and unregulated, as of Citizens United. The reason Mitt Romney cut his campaign staff off immediately (leaving them to pay their own hotel bills) when he lost to Barack Obama in 2012, is that he / the candidate, is able to keep any monies left over at the end of campaign expense. In this manner, many candidates run for office, never expecting or even wanting to win, only to get rich by collecting soft money contributions and keeping the remaining proceeds.
Also, there are the ultra-rich, who influence the elections through political advertising, which in my opinion, should be illegal. The person who can afford the most advertising, should not be able to control information to the public without anyone regulating whether or not there are ethics involved and the ads are true. This corruption allows the same people who sell us unhealthy foods, drugs that are dangerous, liquor, cigarettes/tobacco in any form, and anything else we shouldn't be doing by lying to us in advertising - to sell us a legal policy, candidate, or politician. 
Caucuses are corrupted. The horror stories emanating from that circular firing squad were really evident in states where the "district leaders" never showed up so no one knew how to regulate the vote and therefore had questionable motives/actions throughout.
Voting machines should be illegal. They have been hacked and corrupted in EVERY election since their inception. Also, the delegate system that Debbie Wasserman Schultz made us all painfully aware of is corrupted when someone can - or even assumes that they can do what they want despite the will of the people: her actual statement was, “Unpledged delegates exist really to make sure that party leaders and elected officials don’t have to be in a position where they are running against grassroots activists,” (which is what we were told Barack Obama was) So she just said that the Democratic Party voting in NOT DEMOCRATIC. She needs to be removed from her position first. I don't know how she/whoever gets appointed or elected to office or by whom she did.
Also, is she saying that President Obama was NOT a grassroots candidate and that the whole "grassroots" campaign we heard about was fake?  I think that question needs to be addressed. The main reason it needs to be addressed is so we can return to a real democracy. When that happens will be determined by us, the voters. I think we need a new party with the name "Progressive Party" to verbalize the actual change, ideologically, of what our founding fathers would have wanted, it they weren't some slave owning White Supremacists.
In my opinion WE ARE BETTER BECAUSE WE HAVE EVOLVED so our political party should also. No more two party system. When the actual system is divided by many parties on both sides, we can't let the lines be blurred or let wealth influence us. Also, in my opinion, the guy we need to fashion and lead this party in his own incorruptible image is Bernie Sanders. Please tell me what you all think.
On my last note, I will say, Bernie Sanders is right. It is high time for a political revolution in this country and no one in congress is going to pay any attention to us until about one million of us (I would suggest several million.) show up at congress doorstep and ask them, "How do you plan on getting home tonight?" Bring a fresh rope, actually more like several. Maybe we could set up and build several gallows on the front lawn of the capital building. Start discussing a date or dates (at least one week) and we should all start organizing transportation.
Welcome to the revolution. The time has come. Let's do this.
Okay, today is March 25. 2016 and something happened. For those of you who don't know, the video has gone viral of Bernie Sanders at one of his election rallies and as he was speaking a tiny bird flew near him. As the crowd said something, Bernie stopped and asked, "What?" and then he saw the bird, As he was saying, "That bird doesn't know it..." the bird flew up and landed on the podium, watching him. The video is cute, here:

Some people on social media (Facebook) came up with this emblem for the Progressive Party:

So, another update today. This is the sort of flier for the progressive party that surfaced on Facebook today:
