Swing States Won’t Matter When Bernie Runs as an Independent, and Why He’d Win the Election.


The Media and Clinton campaign has tried one last ditch effort to coerce the Bernie-or-Busters into kowtowing to the preordained queen.  This attempt is the “Don’t Split the Vote” slogan.  Remembering the wounds of the Florida debacle in 2000 (and wrongfully blaming it on Nader), the Dems are freaking scared of Sanders emerging as a third party independent candidate.

However, times have changed since Nader, Gore, and Bush.  Nader’s campaign never had this kind of traction.  The Bernie Bus has the overwhelming support of independents, half the democrats, and even a sliver of life-long republicans.  The Vermont Populist has mastered the art of small donor contributions, and he found the fuse of the Millennials (which have overtaken the Boomers in terms of population).

That got me thinking.  “Splitting the vote” only pertains to the swing states.  At first glance, a mildly-supported third party candidate would ding the party…

Hillary is Going Broke and the DNC Can’t Help Anymore

Political Reads

Edited by Samantha Bates

It was supposed to be easy, a mere formality of a primary campaign and then the nomination of Hillary Clinton as the Democratic candidate for President. The charade would last until March, and then Clinton would pivot to the general election. But something unexpected happened: the fringe candidate Bernie Sanders caught fire, and now Hillary is going broke.

Major media outlets reported in February that the majority of her donors had already reached their maximum campaign contribution, which wouldn’t have been an issue had things gone as planned. The problem was Sanders was still in the race and on pace to raise 40 million+ for the month. Clinton desperately needed to close Sanders out in March. However, she failed to do so.

Sanders opened March with an upset in Michigan and finished with a rout of the Northwest and Hawaii. To make matters worse for the…

Why Hillary Clinton Is Not Entitled to Bernie Sanders’ Supporters

Very well said…….if you haven’t been paying attention to politics in America you are missing the three ring circus of deception, deceit, lying, pandering……….


Written by Dominica R. Convertino

Throughout the last few weeks, mainstream media outlets and political pundits alike have incessantly derided the many supporters of Bernie Sanders who claim that they will not be voting for Hillary Clinton in November, should she win the Democratic nomination. Pundits argue that if they effectively fail to rally behind Hillary, Bernie’s supporters will be to blame in November if Donald Trump is subsequently elected. Here is why the pundits are definitively wrong, and why this rhetoric is not only misleading, but incredibly offensive to the democratic process:

First, let me preface this argument by pointing out that this entire debate over whether or not Bernie’s supporters should throw their weight behind Clinton in the general election is (intentionally) misleading, as it maintains an underlying assumption that Hillary Clinton is the inevitable Democratic nominee; an assumption that we have been force-fed for years by both…

…her hand slowly reached out and she turned the door knob..not sure of what she would find or if anyone would be there.  It was so long since she had been to this place.  She missed her friends but life as a way sometimes of just putting you into isolation.  You focus on what you need to do to survive and move on. No time time for chit chat or carrying on.

The room was dark and dusty…it was quiet….where were her finds..so was sure they must still be here somewhere. She hopped they would still be here. She thought of them often, Paula, Pink, Jenny, Paula Renee.  She walked cautiously around hoping to find her friends still there.

Hello everyone life does have a way of taking over sometimes. I have missed all of my wordpress family and I certainly hope you are all still out there. I have been in school at the local college studying yoga, music, and taking photoshop courses.

I have also spent the past year learning to do Reiki. I will be doing a workshop and I will do a separate post about that.

I have also been working on my book, The Disillusionist,. It is quite a different beast to write a book than to do a blog. To all those writers out there that have managed to do both I applaud you. It is quite a daunting task.

Missy has had 2 cancer surgeries, first one they removed 4 lumps ( 3 cancerous 1 fatty) second surgery they removed 3.

I said no to chemo and have her on all kinds of herbal and homeopathic products. She seems to be doing okay–so far have not seen any other lumps on her.

I finally have found some good young people to work as performers–fingers crossed they all work out.

School starts again at the end of august. I will be taking a graphic design class, photography, hata yoga, and commercial music theory.

I am working towards what I want in life vs trying to walk away from something I don’t want. It’s a more positive spin on things.

That’s it for now–hopefully will have more revelant posts soon.


Rowdy Girl Sanctuary

My Vegan Heart Blog


Rowdy Girl Sanctuary is the dream of Renee-King Sonnen.

Renee is a singer and songwriter from the Houston/Brazoria County area who met her future husband, Tommy Sonnen, while singing at a nightclub.

Renee and Tommy

She went suburban living to ranch living 6 years ago when they got married. She lives on a 96 acre cattle ranch right on hwy 35, 50 miles southwest of Houston and 30 miles from Bay City/Matagord.

Her husband has been a cattle rancher for 15 years. . It’s beyond my ability to describe! My husband’s great-grandfather supplied almost all of Houston with meat in the early 1900’s – his great-grandfather had a slaughter-house.

When she married him 6 years ago, she had no idea that she would become vegan as a result of the horrors of the sale barn episodes with the calves.

Like Howard Lyman, the cattle rancher turned vegan she had an epiphany that opened…

Introducing Wunderbar Vegan soaps and the owner/creator Anka Schwartz


Anka has been an on and off again vegetarian for a long time. She has wanted to be a vegetarian since she was 12 but it was hard because her family didn’t really support it

“When I moved out I started to get into being vegetarian but then I’d get into a relationship and the person I was with wasn’t vegetarian so that made it hard and then I sadly always gave up.

As of now I’ve been vegetarian for almost 2 years. My best friend recently transitioned from being vegetarian to vegan and she has been making a lot of posts and sharing experiences that have inspired me so right now I’m still learning and hoping to gain strength to be fully vegan.

After a life time of buying and using inferior products that just didn’t do what…

2014 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2014 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 14,000 times in 2014. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.
