The City of Philadelphia will spend upwards of $60 million to house millionaires and billionaires but yet continues to fail in providing for its most vulnerable citizens.

Please get this information out for the younger ones who can attend these things.

For the Bernie Sanders supporters there are many places going to march in conjunction with the Philly March. The Sanders’ campaign has requested permission to hold a rally in Philadelphia on July 24 held at Franklin Delano Roosevelt Park to begin at noon.

If you can not be there and would like to be in Solidarity a list of cities around the USA can be found here.

What does that mean, that the city will spend all that money "to house" millionaires and billionaires? Philly is going to support them?
When the election, finally, rolls around, in November,please recognize that any vote for Jill Stein, whom I admire, will be a vote taken away from Hillary, and, in effect, given to Trump and Mike (end social security; end Roe vs. Wade; kill off funding for Planned Parenthood; there is no global warming, and more) Spence!

Trump never said anything that I'm aware of about taking Social Security away and he is firmly behind no TPP. Hillary in my opinion is a Republican so what is the difference? There isn't, she just isn't as loudmouthed. I'll be voting for Jill Stein - the White House is lost no matter which of the other two get in.

"Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton hold the highest candidate disapproval ratings in American history—in that order. These two candidates, the system insists, are the only “rational” options.

Step outside the system and you are disappeared or ridiculed. Acceptable political opinions, as Wolin wrote, are “measurable responses to questions predesigned to elicit them.” We vote, in the end, for skillfully manufactured personalities.

Neither Trump nor Clinton in office will hinder corporate hegemony. Nothing will change until we revolt, until we defy the corporate system, until we wake from our civic stupor. The goal of the elites is to keep us pacified." Chris Hedges

I use to live just over the Ben Franklin Bridge in South Jersey. I know the area and I wish them all the best. It will be HOT and HUMID so bring water and wear a hat and stay safe. I'll be thinking of you all . . . . .

Good advice Winn. There is a rally here in Orlando in conjunction with the Bernie Sanders gathering on the 24 and I'd love to go, isn't that far from me. However the heat is too much for me now at my age so I'll have to let the younger one's feet be there and I in "spirit".

Is why I post the information in hopes people will pass it out to others who might be able to attend. I was glad most of the things I was doing for Bernie Sanders did take place in the cooler months here in Florida.

I would like all of you to remember that a vote for Jill Stein is on less vote for Hillary Clinton. A vote for Gary Johnson is one less vote for either Donald Trump or Hillary Clinton. Your vote goes to the person you wish to see as President. If you do not want Mrs. Clinton or Mr. Trump to be President, then it is obvious: Do not vote for either of them. Hillary is the candidate for the 1%. If you are not part of the 1%, why would you vote for her?

When I ask people why they are voting for Hillary Clinton, the most common answer is, "She's not Trump." They never tell me about any significant legislation she has authored. I am voting for Jill Stein, for the greater good. She doesn't owe anything to the corporations. Even the party she is part of doesn't take money from corporations.

Good idea, Winn. Philly can be oppressive in the summer....everyone should prepare to sweat out years of toxic build up. On the bright side, you'll leave the city feeling like a new man/woman!...feeling lighter and happier than you've felt for years! :-)

We've been organizing this Peace Train March for Bernie Sanders for over a month now. We've directed MANY people to their local area, as they were willing to drive up to 6 hours!!! As badly as I want to march the entire day, I've volunteered to work at the rest/H2o area as this is my group. Please, look at the link for an area near you, as it is a national event.

BTW, it's probably best that I rest at the rest area as I discovered I have walking phenomenon and am on another round of anti-bios. I've another chest X-Ray today and plan on wearing a mask, no matter how bloody hot it is here. I will not miss this under any circumstances. If I drop and end in hospital, it's well worth it and I'll be able to live with myself because if I didn't I wouldn't!

I take care of my granddaughter so I can't end up in the hospital she depends upon me. Bernie wouldn't want anyone to end up in the hospital anyways.

You are welcome on the Bernie Sanders march posting as well.....taking care of both with one posting.

Yeah, 3rd party vote to Nader the win for Trumpelthinskin. Way to f@(k up the country. What has Hillary done for women, children, and families? Start with: She played a leading role in the development of State Children’s Health Insurance Program, which provides the much-needed state support for children whose parents cannot afford nor provide them with adequate healthcare coverage.
She was also instrumental in the creation of the Adoption and Safe Families Act and the Foster Care Independence Act.
Successfully fought to increase research funding for prostate cancer and asthma at the National Institute of Health (NIH).
She spearheaded investigations into mental illness plaguing veterans of the Gulf War; we now have a term for it – Gulf War Syndrome.
She helped create the office on Violence Against Women within the Dept. of Justice.
Took a leading role in the investigation of health consequences of first responders and drafted the first bill to compensate and offer the health services our first responders deserve (Clinton’s successor in the Senate, Kirsten Gillibrand, passed the bill).

This is exactly why the League of Women Voters no longer are part of the debates because it was a way to prevent other Parties from competing equally with them. What few people realize is The Commission on Presidential Debates is a private firm. There is the word a PRIVATE firm that controls our democracy.

In 1987 by the Democratic and Republican parties to establish the way that presidential election debates are run between candidates for President of the United States. The Commission is a non-profit, 501(c)(3) corporation as defined by federal US tax laws, whose debates are sponsored by private contributions from foundations and corporations

Okay - got that one - read that last paragraph again.

The organization, which is a nonprofit corporation controlled by the Democratic and Republican parties, has run each of the presidential debates held since 1988. Hence why we are NOT getting any other ideas and are PLAYED each election to vote for one or the other and the same playbook used by each Party, to not vote for the other or the "other" is the lesser of two evils.

The American People really MUST get out of this or things will NEVER change. If you look at the Platform of the Democratic Party and see the CRUMBS that were tossed out to somehow make it appear progressive it's a stomach churner. And too many people ACCEPT that as their fate and simply go along with it.

When a Party can't place real teeth onto a platform that protects the environment and slows the Climate Crisis we are facing and CLAIMS it is working for the people it's a farce. Also this platform was non binding it was a piece of paper or a "goal".......Democrats can't even have a goal that would save their own arses.

In the other Corporate owned Party at least they are clear to say, we don't give a care about the climate we don't even believe it, we drank the kool aid so deeply we are convinced totally, we are brainwashed to the hilt. So what Party is worse, the brainwashed and truly believe it, or the ones who know better but keep taking the Corporate money anyway?

Either way we get screwed!

Now I support the 3rd Parties because it offers us true democracy of "other" ideas. I support the 3rd Party that is the Green Party because I relate to what they are standing for, this is what I believe in, this is where I'd like to see my Country move towards.

In order to help MAKE THAT VISION HAPPEN......then we MUST move away from the Parties that are NOT supporting a healthy way for most of the people and the animals not only within the Country but in the long shadow that it projects around this world. We have a large impact around the world be it economic or climatic we have an impact.

So to start we must each help to make that Vision come to be. Sure we can keep TRYING to push the two Parties that are embedded and controlled by the Corporate. We can still push them in any way we can but when it comes time to vote for them we must use that vote WISELY.

Now here is why it's important to vote for the 3rd Parties.

This is how it goes 5 percent is the milestone set by the Federal Election Commission to be eligible for the Presidential Election Campaign Fund’s grant.

The amount of public funding available to the minor party candidate is based on the the ratio of the party’s popular vote in the preceding presidential election to the average popular vote of the two major party candidates in that election.

That is one hurdle that a 3rd Party must go through. The next step is:

Despite a lawsuit from the Libertarian and Green parties, the Commission on Presidential Debates is sticking to its 15 percent rule for inclusion in the general election debates.

This was a squeeze play by both the Republicans and Democrats to keep out other Parties and their ideas. So if we want as much coverage as the other two Parties receive at least in the debates this is a threshold.

So 5% and highers gives some needed income to the 3rd Parties very important so they can do more to get their name out there and make themselves known to more people. That is 1 reason I'll vote for the Green Party, the other is to try to get over that 15% so a quality like Dr. Jill Stein can stand on the stage with a Trump and Hillary....also a Bernie. Might of been nice to have had both Bernie and Jill Stein hammering out pretty much the same message.

We need to PUSH an alternative - because the two main Parties have been so smug that we always vote for one of them no matter what and BOTH are Corporate owned now. As Albert Einstein said, insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result.

Debra "State Children’s Health Insurance Program, which provides the much-needed state support for children whose parents cannot afford nor provide them with adequate healthcare coverage."

Then why has she back away from Universal Health Care to provide all people no matter what their age the adequate healthcare coverage they need. I've seen too many twentysomethings dying because they got to that age and our society drops the ball, they die for lack of having medical coverage and care. Not all are covered or can be covered despite the Affordable Care Act which was just a gift to the Corporate Insurers.

The so called lesser of two evils still doesn't cut it - so I don't buy into that fear. BOTH Parties Candidates are equally failing in my book, but if voting for Hillary makes your day I guess go for it, just don't expect anything better than what is going on right now. In fact on foreign affairs she scares the hell out of me. Is all find and well that she helped Veterans of the Gulf War, but she helps to support other wars based on lies like Iraq and Libya that even Obama now regrets.

-----

Yes, and than there is the, "District Signatures just to get on the ballot" hurdle to jump through, too....ranging from 1000 to 100,000. And every one of those signatures have to be "approved" beforehand. And still there is more BS third parties have to go through.

After this latest two party debacle/nightmare election from Hell, every American - especially - young Americans HAVE TO be made aware of the UNFAIR hurdles. It has to be hammered into the minds of Americans by media....not just one, two, three stories, it needs headline status! It is the lack of awareness of third-party candidates and the hurdles they face that is the number one reason for their continued losses.

Doing my best from my little corner of the world to bring awareness Randy. People can't just keep falling back on the "well I can't vote they don't win" they must help to assure that they and everyone has the option of 3rd Parties. Too many complain but too few do anything until next election then they say, well I don't like so and so but I'm left with little choice. So today is the time to prepare for tomorrow to fix this mess.
