Erasing history is a basic necessity in the fundamental transformation of this country into another failed communist nation. Besides, it'll be confusing to the school children if their town centers don't match their latest history school books.

Nice avatar.

Of course Donald Sutherland is from Canada, which happens to be a socialist country. His father in law is Tommy Douglas, who is a famous socialist Prime Minister who set up Canada's socialist healthcare. Just a little history lesson for you.

Two Benghazi Parents Sue Hillary Clinton for Wrongful Death, Defamation

The parents of two Americans killed in the 2012 terrorist attacks on U.S. diplomatic facilities in Benghazi, Libya, filed a wrongful death lawsuit in federal court Monday against Hillary Clinton.

In the suit, Patricia Smith and Charles Woods, the parents of Sean Smith and Tyrone Woods, claim that Clinton's use of a private e-mail server contributed to the attacks. They also accuse her of defaming them in public statements.

No fan of Hillary.

Well if it goes to a court of law hopefully the truth will come out. However, I suspect it will turn into yet another investigation against her that shows nothing.

I reiterate:

My "issues" with Hilary reside in my fears that she might end up a "hawkish" president and that she might be a president who is more of a fiscal conservative than I would want her to be.

This.

Jill Stein, on the other hand, appears to be non-hawkish and not a pro-corporatist neo-liberal. None of that has anything to do with gender. On the other hand, Jill is, to my knowledge, still not on the ballot in all 50 states. Furthermore, info is coming out about her views on vaccination and "wi-fi radiation" that could be non-evidence based and detrimental to gaining support. None of this has anything to do with gender.


Thank you for the link in your other post about her hawkishness. That is a legitimate concern I think for those that are tired of being dragged into foreign wars (and those of us that live in countries that get dragged in after the US into those foreign wars).

I have voted green in the past when I was unhappy with the party that I had previously supported. However, that was when my seat was a safe seat and I knew that my vote wouldn't risk putting the greater evil into power.

Here is Noam Chomsky's thoughts on voting for the lesser evil rather than a 3rd party candidate:

Noam Chomsky's 8-Point Rationale for Voting for the Lesser Evil Presidential Candidate

Worth a read if you think taking the higher ground is a good idea. His point "Voting should not be viewed as a form of personal self-expression" is a strong reminder that you are responsible for picking someone who is going to lead your country. You don't seem to think Jill Stein going to get that chance, so a vote for her would really just be handing the presidency to Trump.

Point 6 states "...should Trump win based on its failure to support Clinton, it will repeatedly face the accusation (based in fact), that it lacks concern for those sure to be most victimized by a Trump administration."

So you have the luxury to throw muslims, blacks, women, homesexuals, hispanics and so on under the bus to salve your conscience? Because in this regard there is a clear difference between the candidates that are likely to win.

As far as I'm concerned, when it comes to leadership, gender plays no part. What's so hard to understand with that?

I always wonder about people who accuse 'Groups' (Blacks, Jews, Whites, Women, Men, Gays, et al) of (Fill-in the negatives).

Just wish they would stop projecting their own problems on everyone else.

Right, because there's no such thing as sexism or racism or ..., thus nobody can be on the receiving end of discrimination, and anybody who says otherwise is guilty of projection.

Life must be nice in the CLYDE universe.

& yours it seems! For those with any semblance of common sense between their ears knows that sexism, racism & discrimination occurs.

So we are now at the stage where even a question becomes sexist if that question involves a female?

We are at the stage that when it does involve a female it is sensible to examine ones on internal prejudices (that exist in everyone raised in a patriarchal society) and make sure that your gut reactions and willingness to believe certain things about her are not based upon those unacknowledged internal prejudices.

If someone treats me poorly (in work, life, the street..anywhere really) I always have that extra possibility that they are being a d*ck to me just because I am female. Sometimes its not, they are just being a d*ck. However, there is always that possibility. I suspect you don't have to deal with that extra layer of complexity in your everyday life. It is there though, and it is certainly there when it comes to Hillary Clinton.

Or better yet, leaving aside gender, the question should be: - Is she trustworthy enough to lead?

This is why seti makes me sad.

*goes away to bang head against a brick wall*

Perhaps you should report these ____ to someone who can track their internet rants and correlate them with their web browsing history just to be sure none of them are becoming excessively radicalized?

As to fitness, Trump negative numbers, worse than Nixon. Hillary isn't perfect (she is a politician after all) but won't start WWIII because of a perceived slight. That being said I'd still rather see Gary Johnson elected.

So as a person she would do at least as good as any of the last several persons to occupy the office. Policy is another matter. Elect Gary Johnson!

The real question is: If she were the leader would privileged white males follow?

Some will. They are no longer the majority in America. Hence the appeal of Trump and his promise to make America great again (code for make it like when white males really did have all the power)

I don't think Hillary is perfect. However, just like the terrible vitriol thrown at Obama, there is something very skewed about the accusations levelled at her.

Concerns I have heard is that she is a warmonger. That seems a valid concern and not related to negative stereotypes about women. I am not sure where those concerns stem from, and would love to be enlightened.

However this 'lying Hillary' BS works because it goes straight to the underbelly of subconscious attitudes towards women.

Or better yet, leaving aside gender, the question should be: - Is she trustworthy enough to lead?

This is why seti makes me sad.

I post a video that shows how her honesty and capability has been questioned from since she barely graduated school. She has been an activist an involved in politics from before she met her husband. Time and time again from before she even had the chance to do anything..anything at all her trustworthiness was questioned and challenged.

As she progresses through her career she is judged again and again and again and evidence is constructed and exaggerated to prove that she is not trustworthy. She is judged on harsher terms than her male peers who have done far worse with far less outcry. There is a huge double standard here, and watching you all twist and turn so you don't see it makes me sad.

The sad terrible thing is that I totally recognise this behaviour. I've been a woman all my life and know exactly what she is up against.
Women constantly have their judgement questioned in a way that men never do unless they actively do something crazy (see Trump). The fact that there is even a contest between her and Trump says it all.

So I say again. Are you absolutely sure that you aren't subconsciously judging her on stereotypical assumptions of how women and men are supposed to behave? Because is really, really looks like it to me.

Simply claiming that you judge men and women the same doesn't cut it because clearly, obviously, undoubtedly you are not.

So next time you say "I just don't trust her" ask yourself where that question really comes from.

For a better world, vote either Johnson (L) or Stein (G)... PLEASE!!! Kick the (D)'s and (R)'s out!


Um.. not Stein. I cannot in good conscience vote for someone who is anti-science. I wouldn't have voted for Cruz for the same reason.

Cruz would have been worse than Trump.

Sort of a "If WE can't get it... Neither can YOU".

And 4 years of 'not bloody much happening' in Washington D.C. would be a GOOD thing in my opinion.

You mean more stuff like this?

So as Secretary of State, did she address the Ambassador's concerns?
Request for funding was denied by republicans.

I've seen the Michael Bay movie. I know exactly what went down! There were some guys with big guns who did some manly big gun stuff and saved the day for the US of A.

Its a Michael Bay movie, so it must be true.

Bernie has pulled Hillary to the left, however those fears could be founded.

I have huge concerns about Jill Stein's pseudo-science agenda. Any candidate who is anti-science is a no-no as far as I am concerned.

Rape is an insidious crime & should be dealt with severely. Saying that, ANY female making allegations which are proved to be false should also be dealt with SEVERELY!

Can't happen. We have been told time and time again that all allegations of rape are true. Just like we have been told time and time again that all allegations of molestation are true. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/McMartin_preschool_trial

Unfortunately most are true and most victims are not believed and revictimised by the justice system.

Considering how many rapist walk free, penalising people who come forward because they were unable to prove they were assaulted is a simply terrible and stupid idea.

How about instead of getting up in arms about the tiny minority of false accusations, try to get outraged at the number of rape kits that are not being tested.

These could prove people guilty or innocent.

And you also have to ask why personnel sent information to or through her private server, if they were known to be insecure. It is the senders responsibility to ensure classified info is sent via secure means to a secure destination, if they cannot ensure that then the info should never have been sent.

The reason why no prosecution was possible. Too many mid and upper level staff would have been implicated for following orders. The BOSS may also have escaped the "mandatory" security briefing on the handling of information. Also the receipt of the information over a known insecure channel could be taken as evidence that the information was not classified at the time, as classified information could not be knowing transmitted via insecure channels. Mens rae. Can't convince a jury after a good lawyer gets through with the loopholes.

You can be sure it won't happen again. a/k/a a lesson from the school of hard knocks.

This is all clear as mud.

Clinton’s Email Falsehood

" *More than 2,000 of the 30,490 emails Clinton gave to the State Department in December 2014 contained classified information — most of it classified retroactively.
*But 110 emails in 52 email chains contained classified information at the time they were sent or received.
*Three emails included classified markings, but weren’t properly marked.
"

So not great, but hardly the scandal of the century, and certainly not vomit worthy.

So again, is Clinton being held to a higher standard than her male counterparts?

Always excuses for Left Wing Total Economic Failures, Destruction of Individual Liberties, etc.

Just as The Left excused Mass Murdering Stalin, Mao, Castro brothers, et al.

If The Left were Ethical and Moral. We should see their mass apologizes, to the over 1 Billion People Murdered and Enslaved by those The Left excused in the last 100 years.

Where are the apologizes?

I will not hold my breath.

Nor will I hold my breath for an apology for the current enslavement, murder and destruction of the environment caused by capitalism.

Es99...

As an Anti-Capitalist. I do not, as with The Left, expect an apology.

Es99...

Am I correct in assuming that you hold The Left and The Capitalists, in the same disgust?

I don't make facile sweeping statements about diverse groups. So no.

Es99...

Your beliefs regarding an individual, because of their gender (me). Is very disturbing.

If anyone said you are not supporting a man, because of his gender. What would you believe about that person?

As I said. Your responses are very disturbing.

I had forgotten how much you like to twist things and play stop-thief when someone calls you out.

Despite the evidence that Hillary is very likely to be a good president, you judge her has wanting. The fact that you have so easily swallowed the vitriol levelled against her (hence you wanting to vomit) suggests to me a double standard is in place as to the qualities you expect from a female vs the qualities from a male.

Feel free to prove me wrong by posting some actual, real, issues you have with her candidacy. Give examples. Otherwise I am going to assume the issue you have is with her gender.

Tell me honestly. What has Hillary done that makes you want to vomit?

Es99...

She is a Total Fraud. As most politicians are.

In what way is she a fraud? What has she done?

Hillary, because of her gender, is no better.

What do you mean? How does her gender effect your judgement of her?

I'll answer the second. because my first answer as already been settled, after a very long investigation.

Gender...

Es99... You posted,

I really do wonder if this is another case of a women having to be better than the best to even be considered.

I just responded to your statement.

Es99...

Do you believe there is sexism regarding my despising This Politician?

Are you judging me negatively. Because I hold Women to the same standard as Men?

Its clear to me that you hold her to a far higher standard than Men. Your description of wanting to vomit at the thought of voting for what is essentially a well qualified, experienced candidate tells me that. Your acceptance of the right wing scaremongering and hysteria without question tells me that.

If you held her to the same standard you wouldn't find her such a bad candidate at all.

True Socialism, not 'Safety Nets' for the needy. Will always devolve into nothing more than Crony Capitalism, under a different name

Clyde are you describing Sweden?

betreger...

Socialism: The State (Controller's) taking over the Means of Production.

Venezuela is a recent example of what True Socialism must devolve to: Crony Capitalism.

...

Did it devolve or was it pushed?

The Other Explanation for Venezuela’s Economic Crisis
"The Chávez and Maduro administrations have attempted this task while facing constant hostility not only from an aggressive internal political opposition that has often resorted to violence, but also from the hemisphere’s hegemon, the United States. Washington, which almost instinctively has been opposed to Chavismo from day one, has consistently interfered in Venezuela’s internal affairs in the hope of crushing the Bolivarian process. From a Bush administration-backed[14] and CIA-aided[15] coup in 2002, in which then-President Chavez was nearly removed from power by force, to refusals to recognize Chavista electoral victories, threats of sanctions, and covert funding for opposition candidates, the United States had been determined to do everything possible to ensure that it would fail. The United States has viciously opposed anything that threatens the dominance of the unfettered neoliberal capitalist vision that it has sought to defend, and then spread, throughout the world. As William Camacaro and COHA Senior Research Fellow Fred Mills wrote early last year in Counterpunch, “A great deal hangs in the balance with regard to the feasibility of advancing a democratic socialist project while under the continuous attack of a U.S.-backed opposition, elements of which are bent on restoring the neoliberal regime."

The problems we are seeing in the world today are products of neo-liberal capitalism. From the problems faced by Europe to the disenfranchised Trump voters.

Socialism isn't the boogy man here.
