To what? Let's not get our problems and solutions confused.

The DNC fundraising decline is not the problem seeking a solution...de-funding the DNC is the solution to the problem, which is the corruption of the DNC.

@jorogo
Solutions I was looking for involved things like 1) firing everyone at the DNC, 2) public humiliation of DNC consultants, 3) criminal prosecution of DNC corruption, and 4) make Perez wear a clown suit.

Clinton got a shitload of celebrity endorsements during her primary fight against Bernie. How about those stars holding DNC fund raisers as once Hillary won the nomination, she sucked dry any contributions to the DNC leaving it broke at the end.

Here is an interesting list of celebrity supporters of Bernie and Hillary during the primaries.

Is there a pattern of celebrity endorsements? Seems like one but I cannot figure it out.

The current working assumption appears to be that our Shroedinger's Cat system is still alive. But what if we all suspect it's not, and the real problem is we just can't bring ourselves to open the box?

“Committee to Investigate Russia:” Rob Reiner and Morgan Freeman’s Warmongering Video

Actor-director Rob Reiner and actor Morgan Freeman have teamed up with a sordid crowd of extreme right-wingers to push the McCarthyite anti-Russia campaign.

Reiner, a longtime Democratic Party fundraiser and fervent Hillary Clinton supporter, is a member of the Advisory Board of a new organization, the “Committee to Investigate Russia,” which describes itself as a “non-partisan, non-profit” organization “helping Americans understand the gravity of Russia’s continuing attacks on democracy.”

As part of this foul outfit’s launching, Freeman narrates a two-minute video, which begins:

“We have been attacked. We are… at war.”

Hollywood is rampant with arrogant nut cases like these two.

Then again, as someone posted here some months ago, there is a possibility that donations are being stashed somewhere, perhaps in one of Hillary's new PACs.

A rule Hillary took to heart when her campaign bought out the DNC debt in exchange for...."making the rules" that stole the primary.

NO MORE WAR

to one of their pleas for money, just for the hell of it, and I ALWAYS refer them back to their real constituency, their donors. Boohoo, they screwed themselves over even bigger than just losing the Presidency to the Dunce in Chief, they also allowed that Creature to tank their finances as well as what was left of their tattered reputation, such that it was, based on lies. Waaaaa.... HER really does trash everything she comes into contact with.

By that I mean that the only thing on their shrivelled little brains is money-grabbing. They don't care about the citizens, the party's heritage, or any principle except grabbing lot for themselves. All their candidates for future nominations are rated according to the amounts of money the candidates should be able to raise from investors (AKA donors).

Winning elections is inconsequential, and they surely do not want to do any good for non-investors. If they have any objective beyond money, it would be to service their investors' whims by advancing the reagan Revolution/neo-liberalism. That means doing anything the businessman wants: i.e., cheat the employees, cheat the consumers, rape the environment, make no taxes or regulations on them, and privatize everything they want while eliminating everything else. Of course, exercise some restraint on sexism and racism to distinguish the two parties.

That's just for a start of course, but they should really think about it.

I do not pretend I know what I do not know.

...Well, I'm stumped then.
What could be the solution?

How about letting them soak in their own solution of vitriol until they dissolve and are replaced in landslide elections too obvious for cheating to work by real people who are humane (now being pronounced 'Progressives') until democracy finally takes over the CorpoDem (and perhaps even the ReCorplican?) Party, while viable other Parties are being built up for the time when free and fair, publicly-funded elections and a Fair Vote system allows multiple other parties to run, engage in free and fairly moderated public electoral debates (without being 'arrested' and held cuffed to a chair) and to actually have a chance to be elected if they seem to be best for The People/State/country, etc. at the time, while The People actually have a democratic choice of parties where each of their votes actually count and the process of voting is protected and made easy - not littered with roadblocks and evidence of cheating?

(And thanks to The 'Gator for his suggestion in another thread. Unless I again fail to see typo's until waiting for this to post, despite having now reverted to nose-typing. Which strikes me as probable, lol.)

Psychopathy is not a political position, whether labeled 'conservatism', 'centrism' or 'left'.

A tin labeled 'coffee' may be a can of worms or pathology identified by a lack of empathy/willingness to harm others to achieve personal desires.
