Here are the results of our “Bernie or Hillary” poll.  Politics Plus Polls are not scientific, because those who respond are not balanced according to demographic categories.   Therefore, we do not accurately reflect the makeup of the US population.  Nevertheless, our polls are usually factually accurate, and more often than not, they reflect thinking or will of the national majority. This time, I think not.

I voted for Bernie, like most of the rest of you.  Sadly we do not reflect the bulk of America on this issue.  I endorsed him, sent him money and will vote for him. if he’s still on the ballot, which is doubtful, because the nominee is always a done deal, before the Oregon primary.  Unfortunately. mist American voters lack the political sophistication to understand Captain Kangaroo, let alone Bernie.

The new poll is up.  Please vote.

My day off seems to have helped.  I’m still tired and swamped, but not so much so as to render me unable to function.

Jig Zone Puzzle:

Today;s took me 3:14 (average 4:59).  To do it, click here.  How did you do?

Short Takes:

From Huffington Post: More Americans feel comfortable with a presidential candidate who identifies as gay or lesbian than with one who identifies as an evangelical Christian, according to a new poll.

The latest WSJ/NBC poll listed a series of qualities in a potential presidential candidate and asked respondents whether they’d "be enthusiastic," "be comfortable with," "have some reservations about" or "be very uncomfortable with" a candidate with each of those qualities.

The results revealed that Americans are actually quite open to having a gay presidential candidate. Sixty-one percent said they would be either enthusiastic about or comfortable with a gay or lesbian candidate, while only 37 percent said they would have reservations or be uncomfortable.

That’s not a hard choice. Gay is certainly preferable to evil, a word that identifies Republican Supply-side pseudo-Christianity.

From Daily Kos: Own man, my foot. From The Washington Post:

When asked this week at an exclusive Manhattan gathering about who advises him on U.S.-Israel policy, Jeb Bush surprised many of the 50-plus attendees by naming his brother, former president George W. Bush, as his most influential counselor.

“If you want to know who I listen to for advice, it’s him,” Bush said Tuesday, speaking to a crowd of high-powered financiers at the Metropolitan Club, according to four people present.

That’s strike 4 on Strike 3!

From Alternet: As we’ve learned through the course of the month, David Letterman’s departure means a lot of different things to a lot of different people. For Americana musicians, it means saying goodbye to one of the genre’s biggest champions. For POTUS, it means losing an “escape” after a long day at work. And for the 20-time visitor of the show, Tina Fey? It means saying sayonara to gendered expectations of wearing fancy dresses.

 

I came to love Tina, as faux Palin.  I bet Drill Baby Dingbat, aka Bloody Bullseye Barbie, is green with envy!

Your first reaction may well be, “You’re preaching to the choir!  Why don’t you tell us something we didn’t already know?”  I fully understand.  I’m sharing it, because this, along with its supporting article, may help you explain why it is true to people who are not in the choir.

Americans are eager to see the government "spread the wealth around" through heavy taxes on rich people. This, according to Gallup, is a relatively new phenomenon, with a clear preference for soaking the rich really only emerging in the past four or five years:

0505Gallup

On a different polling measure, Gallup finds that at least since the mid-1980s a large majority of Americans have expressed a preference for a flatter distribution of income. But that’s something that could, at least hypothetically, be achieved in a whole variety of ways. Taxing the rich in order to redistribute income to the working class is a much more specific idea and, naturally, a more contentious one.

Not surprisingly, Republicans and rich people are not particularly excited about this idea, while Democrats and the poor love it…

Republicans serve the Kochs, the Waltons and the rest of the worst of the 1%. More Americans need to understand this.  Spread the word!

I voted Democratic.  While I normally think that a variety of ideas is preferable to one person’s agenda, the Republican Party has no real variety of ideas, just a variety of fools, all goose-stepping to the same set of failed policies, for $billions from the 0.1%, and for approval from the rabid base, immersed in hatred for all but white, pseudo-Christian males.

The new poll is up.  Please don’t forget to vote.

I voted mostly good.  My first ever introduction to Care2, many years ago,  was putting up a petition on their petition site for the Democratic Party to dump the Nevada Leg Hound from the post of Majority Leader, because he has a tendency to hump a few Republican Legs, begging for votes, whine, roll over, and play dead.  I created this graphic for it.

Reid-LegHound

The good side is that Democrats have an opportunity to chose a MAJORITY (hopefully) Leader that will stand firm against Republican sedition, all the time, not just occasionally, and NOT Chuck Schumer (DINO-NY)!!

The bad side is that Sheldon Adelson will have a good chance to buy the seat for a Republican.

“Do Not Attend” was the clear winner.  I voted “walk out”, because Republicans will spin Democrats who do not attend as not caring about Israel and/or National Security enough to show up.  Walking out clearly delineates the move as a protest.

The mree poll is up and ready you you to vote.
