"Cowardice asks the question...is it safe? Expediency asks the question...is it politic? Vanity asks the question...is it popular? But conscience asks the question...is it right? And there comes a time when one must take a position that is neither safe, nor politic, nor popular but one must take it because it is right." ~Dr. Martin Luther King

So Hillary WON the New York State primary. 

Before and during the vote, the media polls had the democratic candidates neck and neck.

Sanders final  rally in Brooklyn was said to be 128,000. He had the youth vote,the men's vote, the white vote ,the women's vote.... and everything else in sight except, apparently, the winning vote. 

Over and over and over again it was  repeated  ....Voters don't like Hillary...  don't trust the Clintons...She's a poor candidate...has no passion and  runs a lack-luster campaign. 

I,054,000 New Yorkers liked Hillary well enough to support her with a vote.  

763,000 liked Sanders  well enough. 

The Senator raised $40 million in small donations in March. He has $14 million left. So...he spent $26
million to win the votes in New York.  He whipped his youthful followers into a negative frenzy .They  threw money at Hillary's cavalcade the day before the vote. Easy come ...easy go, I guess. He seems to bring it in without much effort and throw it away just as thoughtlessly. 

If he doesn't win the nomination, the media speculate, his supporters may stay home in the general election. 

Bernie said 3 million were refused the right to vote for the nominee of the Democratic Party. They were not registered Democrats. They were Independents. Like himself. It may be why he feels free to criticize the Democratic Party. Not so clear is why he thinks he should be their nominee while promising a 

3 million Independents from one State is probably enough to form a new party and start a revolution. They  could call themselves United Empire Loyalists and pay  foreign mercenaries to fight for the cause. It might be more useful than throwing money at cars driving past in the street. 

The same New York pool of voters gave  the Belligerent Billionaire, the "authentic " one, he who enjoys popularity  and passion because "he tells it like it is " ...they are all   liars and crooks and murderers and rapists  and terrorists  and he won the day with half the votes Hillary did and less than Bernie 

Now that ws a feat fit for a billionaire..

In votes, Sanders, the Cuban-type, Brooklyn,Jewish revolutionary beat the Billionaire  but I don't think he was much comforted by the victory. 

Now those two could join forces and  be a force to be reckoned with. They could probably easily succeed in cutting their joint vote in half by telling it like it is . They could write a  revolutionary song and set it to music from the best little whore house in Texas. 

I know of a grand piano they could borrow.

I'm hoping the Sanders voters hang in to vote for Hillary. The thought of Drumph or Cruz might help them concentrate.
I received a letter from an elderly relative living in Florida, She originally wanted another Bush for the job. Now she writes, half seriously about wishing she still had her Canadian citizenship.

What did a 62 day trial cost?

The cost of the trail on top of the senate audits. And what exactly did we get back monetarily from all those misappropriated funds? And what changes (if any) will there be, and how much is that going to cost us? Toss this useless money making Senate out with the trash. What a disgrace.

Trump is a real piece of work. And do not tell me he is just a politician ! He will literally claim something &, when he gets called on it, will back-pedal like mad. First he stated that the federal gov't should retain control over the properties they currently manage so that all groups could share access and keep them safe. Next he had climbed onto the argument that the states should have those places and could sell them off to extractive and foreign companies who would fence them off. Then he shrugged, " Well, i don't know anything about that. "
As a side-note, there are rumours that our missing Mr Harper is giving lectures to American republicans.

Nothing like the scale of what we are seeing in the States. We sure needed some sunny days after the years of grim reaper. Give it some time & get back on the subject in a year or so. Maybe even enjoy some legal pot by then.

Didn't know anyone who didn't enjoy illegal pot.

In some portions of the United States, there has been a complete shut down and shut off of the public speaking about the election.
They are just going about their business as if it were not happening and hoping to get through the period safely.

A reporter was talking about that Drumph character. Said that Americans seemed to be expressing a need to be led by some second tier Batman villain. Works for me. He seems to think the world is his stage.
