I am hoping we hear 'Liberty & Justice' uttered at the DNC. I didn't hear that once at the RNC. Law & Order can be achieved by a dictator, tyrant, or despot; Liberty & Justice requires democracy, understanding, and equity in order to exist. If we have Liberty & Justice we will ipso facto have Law & Order.

I'm glad it is the democrats turn. Let's see what they have for us. "Maturity and civility?" We'll see.

Chuck: Calm down . . . have a glass of wine . . . quite writing in CAPS. You're going to stroke out, G-d forbid. If you will note, I added the news about DWS's resignation just as it was coming over the wire, and thus didn't have the time or space to go into any detail.

Might I suggest a glass of Louis M. Martini's Muscato Amabile? It might make this crazy world we live in just a hair more tolerable . . .​

YOU JUST GLAZE OVER YOUR FRIEND DEBBIE'S DIRTY TRICKS????? THAT IS WHY PEOPLE QUESTION DEMOCRATIC BLOGGERS--THEY NEVER, BUT NEVER CRITICIZE THEIR OWN--YOU HAVE NEVER WRITTEN A CRITICAL PIECE ON HILLARY, A FIRST CLASS LIAR TO THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. YOU HAVE NEVER LOOKED CLOSELY AT THE CLINTON FOUNDATION, AND ALL ITS WORTS. YOU JUST MAKE CENTRISTS LIKE ME MADE ENOUGH TO VOTE FOR THAT FOOL TRUMP, AND IN THE LAST TWO WEEKS, I HAVE HEARD FROM MANY MORE LIKE ME.

THERE ARE MANY " CLOSET" TRUMP SUPPORTERS, WHO ARE ASHAMED TO SAY THEY SUPPORT TRUMP, BUT UNBALANCED COMMENTS SUCH AS YOURS, WITH NO REFERNCE TO THE DASTARDLY DEEDS OF DEMOCRATIC LEADERS, JUST ENRAGE THE OPPOSITION.

KFS to Stephen K.

Stephen: You are absolutely correct, although for all the good they wrought - which was unquestionably plenty - Carnegie, Ford and Edison carried quite a bit of bigoted and distinctly anti-common man baggage with them.​

Stephen K.

Good one Kurt.

Historically, transforming leaders did not come from government. MLKing never held office, for example. Neither did Carnegie, though he changed American intellectual culture. Nor did Henry Ford, Wilbur Wright, Thomas Edison, etc.

We need cultural leaders to reappear, as the college presidents did in the 1960s.

One man's opinion.

Peace.

Apparently, religiosity! When fundamentals take over democracy it is coming to an end. EDUCATION seems to have been compromised and the MEDIA has a HUGE role in the destruction of civility. They have vetted Trump? NO.

Howard G.

Why hasn't someone compared Trumpism to the cult of Scientology. I can think of five striking similarities that define his appeal and the ultimate destruction he would cause.

Kurt:not the you asked me, here's my view of the Debbie's resignation:


In spite of being Hillary's Florida chair into 2008, she was as non-partisan as one could be. I socialize and work charitable events with judges that I have cases with. They know how to be non-partisan and to not let the conversation ever go towards the case. I know avoid it too. Debbie was exactly the same way.

Here is my take on the email crap:


About the wiki leaks 19,000 DNC emails released

https://wikileaks.org/dnc-emails/emailid/11508

# of partisan emails by DWS?.......Zero!!

# of partisan emails by anyone else at the DNC?...1

Yes,the DNC exec director & a staff member shouldn't be speculating as to what would hurt Bernie Sanders. What is this have to do with Debbie? Can she control every email by every underling in a vast organization?


I have been involved in politics for 40 years. The type of idle chatter and speculation that was contained in that one email, meant nothing. I have thrown emails and scenarios back-and-forth with people for years.


Did the two DNC people that traded that email perform one actual act to further the opposition of Bernie Sanders? Not that we know of. You can't "convict" someone of conspiracy unless there is an act to further the conspiracy.

To me, with zero provable partisanship against Debbie and one email that appears to be mere idle chatter, she gave up her kingdom for less than a horse!

Warren Weinstein

Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent, a new nation, conceived in Liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.

Now we are engaged in a great civil war, testing whether that nation, or any nation so conceived and so dedicated, can long endure.

We are still fighting that war.
