Twitter is hardly a reliable source, but there are some people claiming that there won't be a roll call on the floor and that the vote was done at a breakfast this morning. That could just be people misrepresenting the situation, though.

I'm not sure if some Sanders delegates realize that this isn't a contested convention, so they might throw a fit if that happens. As we saw during the primaries, many of them were not well versed on the rules.

If there are people there issuing death threats toward Sanders, then this movement was never really about him. It's really about anger.

The FBI is investigating the hack http://www.latimes.com/nation/politics/trailguide/la-na-democratic-convention-2016-live-fbi-confirms-it-is-investigating-hack-1469461029-htmlstory.html

A-, because the speakers were great and the crowd was rough at the beginning. There really was nothing that could be done about the crowd, because there are lots of Sanders people unhappy with the election results and the results are settled. The effort toward unity and the strong speakers made it a decent first day.

But then again, sometimes any random person off the street can become a professor and still not fully grasp what they have studied.

Nice edit. Unlike you, though, I have actually studied Smiley

I talk circles around people like you on a regular basis, including a political science professor who worked for Lawton Chiles. I've written a novel, run for office, served on two appointed committees (state and local) and I've helping to advise two political campaigns. Thanks for playing.

I can imagine how much fun everybody around you has had. Unless, I presume, they actually tried reading your novel Smiley

If that makes you feel better, believe whatever you choose. What university do you work at? I'd really like to know who hired such a person. That's right, it's Trump University.

I am ashamed of the 43% of the democratic party that literally voted for a movement that is the beginning of America becoming China or Russia.

Bernie's proposed policies = China = Russia?

China and Russia are vastly different, and both are different than what he proposed.

Both are communist nations, Socialism is merely a step on the way to communism.

SOCIALISM IS NOT THE ANSWER BERNIE! SOCIALISM IS NOT THE ANSWER

Okay, I guess you're against the fire department, the police, national parks, public libraries, etc.

That isn't typically considered to fall under the umbrella of Socialism. Free education and health care does.

You can't pick and choose like that, economics isn't al a carte. If you pay tax dollars that are in turn used for services, that is socialism. When everyone pays a share, then it's socialism.

That is a definition you yourself invented. In the same spirit of individual definitional innovation I suggest another defintion: urinating is socialism. If you ever urinated in your life, you are a socialist.  You cannot pick and choose here: this is not a la carte.

BTW, what is a carte?

I cannot believe someone doesn't know what al a carte means. It's a French saying for picking separate items off of a menu without ordering an entire meal.


No, that would be "a la carte" (sorry for missing the accent on the first "a", my keybord is not set up for the frenchie ones, and a Spanish accent would be wrong here). I have no clue what "al a carte" is, though Smiley

Nice cover.

You have not still noticed I have been making fun of your articles/prepositions from the very beginning? I mean, it must really be difficult in life to be so slow.

I really don't care, because you didn't even understand that government funding infrastructure is in a way socialist. I've never seen a Big Time Professor (or at least that's what you claim that you are) so focused on being 100% right on a message board. Shouldn't you be doing your job?
34  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: Democratic National Convention **live commentary thread** on: July 25, 2016, 10:48:22 pm

You need a real education and seriously. If there was no socialism involved in government, we'd have a completely capitalist economy with no taxes and where infrastructure was privately funded. I didn't invent a damn thing, you are lashing out at me because you don't understand economics and accusing me of just making up things. Get an education, get an education, get an education. You have been read.

Having been a professor of economics for, likely, almost as many years that you have been around, I am mildly amused Smiley

BTW, if you have not noticed, I am the moderator of the Economics board here Smiley

I'm not in the habit of studying everyone's profile here. You need to brush up on your stuff. But then again, sometimes anyone can become a professor. I know a whole lot of people in professions and it's questionable how they got there.

L-O-L.

That should have said just any person off the street can become a professor, but I was trying to be polite. I'll edit it for the massively nitpickers here.

Yes, Bernie, but Socialism is NEVER THE ANSWER.

Then you better stop driving on the roads, walking on the sidewalks and using public provided water, because that is all socialism.

Nonsense.

Not at all. Funding infrastructure through tax dollars is socialism

In that case there has not been a non-socialist government in history, nor is one possible. Ronald Reagan was a socialist, and so was Maggie Thatcher. The word has just lost every meaning it once held.

There hasn't ever been a government completely free of socialism. As I said, we have a mixed economy, which means that elements of socialism are there.

Not at all. Funding infrastructure through tax dollars is socialism and there is nothing wrong with that. What people fail to understand is that we have a mixed economy that incorporates elements of capitalism and socialism. If we paid for private roads and water, then we would get really gouged and no one wants that.

This is great. Good to see they have left the liberal plantation. 

Just stop posting, seriously. That is the oldest crap. It's beyond tired.


Sorry if i offended your liberal sensibilities , but facts are the facts and I continue to highlight this about my community whenever i can.



Not offended, just telling you how ridiculous you are. Trump was getting 0% of the black vote in one poll, so that's punishment enough for you.


The only thing thats ridiculous is how you view blacks as just a percentage of votes.   

Seems about right for the party of Jim Crow . 

Your candidate says blacks are lazy and your Louisiana Senate candidate says even worse. I rest my case.
DAVID DUKE IS NOT OUR CANDIDATE. THERE ARE MANY MORE AND BETTER CANDIDATE. Not all Trump supporters are racist. Get your head out of your anus and go and actually meet some Trump supporters.

He's running as a Republican and was inspired to run by Trump. He's your candidate.
Duke is running as a Republican as our many others like Fleming, Maness, Kennedy, Patel and others. Duke was inspired by him seeing an opening this election, so him being a political opportunist he ran. Every sensible Republican would oppose him. My candidate is not David Duke, mine is Rob Maness!

And if he somehow made the runoff with Foster Campbell (unlikely), I do not think you'd be so anxious to reject Duke.

This is a very vengeful, borderline communist diatribe. Trump is going to get a boost whenever Chief Crazy Warren has a mic in front of her.



I think you could really have a show on right-wing talk radio.

I think the beginning of the speech was a subtle reference to the plagiarism. Michelle specifically talked about her 2008 speech and referencing her husband's character.

The board is really going to get angry now. A student of Trump University is up, which is supposedly an upstanding university that Hillary Clinton has lied about to make Trump look bad. Trump is a saint, right?
