I'm doing a community involvement program before college officially starts and today was the first full day, so that was nice. We helped an old woman with her yards and she told us about how she used to do ballroom dancing but can't anymore, and then we went down and interviewed some undocumented day laborers about labor and immigration issues, which actually was really fascinating for me personally. Hot as inks, but it was a pretty good day nonetheless.

Oh, man, I drove down to college today.

I guess I live here now.

Someone needs to make an ad cutting this together with Khizr Khan's "You have sacrificed nothing!" speech.

But we already have the Democrats.

Crowley's line of attack (Trump swindled 9/11 money) needs to be pushed. That is a very powerful strike at Trump's character (makes him unpatriotic)

Snopes says it's mostly false. http://www.snopes.com/donald-trump-took-150k-from-the-911-small-business-fund/

Frankly the DNC did the right thing all along, they just should have done a better job of containing Sanders. We as the hated establishment are the adults in the party, and we're in charge. We must tune out the base for the same reason that football coaches don't listen to what the fans in the stadium think.

So are we going to give up the "Democratic Party" name or what?

Rooting for Perez. Probably Kaine.

Nope, it's fine. The sentence means the Cubans were scared of the US, not that they wanted the US to protect them.

I was at swing dancing class and am just catching up. What'd Cruz say?

"Vote your conscience."

This isn't like Jim Crow.  Nothing at all like Jim Crow.

What percentage of Americans do you think live in towns so small there is only one place to buy a cake?  And I'd guess its an even smaller percentage of gay Americans.  Maybe 2.5%?  Yes, in those places you should be able to compel (with the force of the law) the local bigot cake maker to make you a cake (though why you would want to give somebody that hates you money is another issue, but whatever, the point is more important than not helping the bigot out I guess).  I don't understand why the other 98% of us don't just avoid bigoted bakers, maybe start a PR campaign/protest against them, advertise for the non bigoted bakers.  Certainly not go out of our way to find the bigots to give them our money.  Or give them free PR to other bigots by suing them.

The other 98% of us don't all just avoid bigoted bakers because a significant number of us consider their bigotry acceptable.
22  Presidential Elections - Analysis and Discussion / 2016 U.S. Presidential Election / Re: How would Sanders be doing against Trump right now? on: July 19, 2016, 02:06:09 am
with minorities: ±0 to -2
with white women: -2 to -4
with white men: +4 to -2

which would add up to roundabouts +1 to -3

Is this relative to how Hillary is doing right now?

Also scheduled Tuesday are Mothers of the Movement members Gwen Carr, Mother of Eric Garner; Sybrina Fulton, Mother of Trayvon Martin; Maria Hamilton, Mother of Dontré Hamilton; Lucia McBath, Mother of Jordan Davis; Lezley McSpadden, Mother of Michael Brown; Cleopatra Pendleton-Cowley, Mother of Hadiya Pendleton; Geneva Reed-Veal, Mother of Sandra Bland.

omg, why would you brand yourself with BLM during the convention?
I want to see a poll on BLM.  If their unfavorables are below 60% I'll eat my hat.

Hillary Clinton has been campaigning with these women since almost the beginning of the primary process. It would be disrespectful for her to drop them now. Also this isn't exactly BLM, this seems more powerful as these women lost children. Should be able to appeal to most mothers out there.

Yeah on second thought, the mothers are probably more measured and ok especially if they've been all together like this, I was imagining an unhinged performance like the girlfriend of that guy who was shot in his car.  And I'd they've been with Hillary then she presumably knows they won't say anything inappropriate like if they'd invited deray McKesson up there or something.

What would even bring you to say this? To denigrate a woman's reaction to her boyfriend being murdered in front of her? Disgusting.

Covering up his failures with his own journal paper... a new low for the American presidency.

Yes, worse than Watergate.

Castro is the ultimate empty suit and Booker is actually in bed with Wall Street.

HUGE f'ing mistake to pick either of them.

Yeah, if she's going Latino Perez would be the better pick. At least he speaks Latin.
Latin?
Mexican.

I don't know why he'd speak that. His parents are Dominican, after all.
