    i dread getting my hopes up.

    I don't think so. I think they need 50 + mutherf^cker Pence to break the tie.

    http://time.com/4821547/jay-z-racism-bail-bonds/?xid=newsletter-brief so cool! This and Lebron's pledge of $80+ million to send poor kids to college made my week. Not a fan of either guy, but I applaud their generosity and commitment.

    http://www.nbcnews.com/news/us-news/trump-reports-hundreds-millions-financial-liabilities-n773551 The U.S. Office of Government Ethics released President Donald Trump's most recent financial disclosure, and it shows that the former real estate mogul carries at least $315 million in liabilities — $130 million to Deutsche Bank alone. this would seem to confirm the conspiracy theories Maddow has been floating forever.

    I'm really sorry you feel that way. I include gerrymandering in the general election with the partisan mechanics of the primaries. It's not that different.

    Very true. But as a southern gal, who voted GOP until W was elected, it's still stunning to me. I'm like "Seriously?" Sorry. I'm a 60 year old who's catching up. I know that's privilege. Just figuring it out. Trying to be better.

    At about the 24 minute mark there is a VERY interesting reveal. We all saw the news video about the woman who pulled her teenage son out of the riots in Baltimore after Freddie Gray died. I never heard what happened next. Did you? https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/undisclosed/id984987791?mt=2#episodeGuid=tag%3Aaudioboom.com%2C2017-06-12%3A%2Fposts%2F6009053

    Yes! The system is rigged. But I see where the courts continue to rule against Wisconsin where 45 won by 22,000 votes and 200,000 votes were suppressed. Celebrate victories. But never rest.

    "Aint it cool!" Broken Arrow i think the party didn't exist a year ago. For someone like me who can't sign on to either party, there's hope something will emerge.

    Reverend William Barber gave a tremendous interview on this podcast from The New Yorker. https://itunes.apple.com/us/podcast/reverend-william-barber-talks-to-david-remnick-about/id268213039?i=1000386186945&mt=2

    I've been wrestling with the issue of these "leaks". While I'm grateful that people are willing to risk their careers and their freedom to get this story out, and I have no doubt this thing would've died quietly if the public hadn't learned of it and kept the pressure on Congress and the DOJ, it's still espionage and it's dangerous.
