Bernie, still gotta love him, started a movement going, even though he has chickened out in pursuing it, which has encouraged rising stars such as Tulsi Gabbard, Nina Turner, Tim Canova and revitalized people like Alan Grayson and Jeff Merkley. My favorite, bar none, the real deal, the real straight shooter, the one with guts, is Tulsi Gabbard.
While the Syrian government surrendered their chemical weapon stockpiles for destruction in 2014, evidence indicates that rebel groups in Syria have ramped up their own supplies of the deadly weapons and have not hesitated to deploy them in combat. In November 2016, the New York Times acknowledged that ISIS, alone, had used chemical arms at least 52 times in Syria and Iraq.
Love this place. Truth reigns. For the most part, anyway. But still seeing here and there 'the peace movement has been missing for the last 8 years', 'where is the peace movement ?, but you know, sorry, but hey, fck you. Where are you? The peace movement has continued on from the 60's. Sorry if you left it. Sorry if you never joined. Sorry if you are ignorant of it's workings.
When your corruption is so obvious and blatant that CNBC, the business channel that couldn't see the fraud of the 2008 financial bubble staring them in face, can call out your bullsh*t on-air, then you aren't fooling ANYONE!

For instance, President Clinton bombed Iraq every week for eight years, but it took Bush to lead us into a disastrous war.
So are we going to war with the Assad regime? The rhetoric is unclear at this point, but it is alarming.
Two days ago the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals vacated the preliminary injunction entered by the court in June, 2016. That injunction allowed Gavin Grimm to use the boys bathroom, but since SCOTUS' action sending the issue back to the Circuit and Gavin's imminent graduation, the case has become "mootish" (except for the damages or if Gavin returns to the school as an alum).
If you all don't mind a bit of a rant:
I have come to the point where I oppose (hate might be a better description) almost every leader from every side involved in this horrendous holocaust in the Middle East.
Global Warming to be Nullified by Nuclear Winter
While candidate Obama came to office pledging to end George W Bush’s wars, he leaves office having been at war longer than any president in US history. He is also the only president to serve two complete terms with the nation at war.
It appears that anti-war liberals finally realized that a Democrat is no longer in the White House, so it's OK to oppose stupid wars again.
Well, guess what the police in Florida think about your free speech?
