    • Sears Canada Steals Pensions
      So, Sears Canada went bankrupt. Their pension fund is underfunded. Pensioners will be screwed. As usual, before going bankrupt Sears paid large dividends and bonuses to its executives, but somehow didn’t have the money for its pension. This isn’t, but should be, illegal. Apologists may claim that if it’s legal, it’s not theft, but justice […]

I voted!

i got to my polling place at about 4:45pm, before the after work crowds. So, no line.

I think the neighborhood doesn’t have many Republicans because when the poll worker, who looked like a bouncer, asked me “you are a Democrat?”, I wasn’t sure it was actually a question.

(Would my machine have worked less well if I’d answered no?)

Anyway, I did the thing for Hillary. And all nine (!) of her delegates. Then I did a little victory jump and shouted, “It’s going to be soooo GOOD!!”

This year, my vote will count. Tom Wolf is not a former Goldman-Sachs guy who’s going to give it away before the end of a legitimate first ballot floor vote.

I will count for voting for the first woman nominee for president of the United States of America.

Its going to be soooo GOOD!

Update: Woot! We won Pennsylvania!

Guess all that hill and stair climbing paid off.

Pennsylvania Primary

Today’s the day in PA, CT, DE, MD and RI! I hope all that hard work paid off.

My vote for the Democratic candidate for President is Hillary Clinton.

This is an easy case to make. She is far and away the most qualified and prepared candidate on either side of the aisle to become president. And although my heart was with Sanders, my head tells me that Hillary knows who to call to get things done. These are the reasons I voted for her in the NJ primary eight years ago and they haven’t changed.

The fact that she is a woman is secondary to me but it is the icing on the cake. It’s more historic than Obama and probably has greater implications down the road. There have been studies that show that the more women you have in government, the better off everyone is. Will one more woman be enough? I don’t know. But she may be able to bring more downticket women with her.That’s my hope.

So, good luck to all of us but may luck favor the prepared mind- Hillary Clinton.

For Senate, to replace Toomey, I’ve been supporting John Fetterman. He’s the mayor of Braddock, just down the road a piece from me. He’s definitely an iconoclast, and who says we couldn’t use more of them in the Senate? He has a passion for urban renewal. So, good luck, John!

And here’s a little shout out to Love and Kindness from Pittsburgh, the TV hometown of Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood. He was actually from Latrobe but the first public broadcasting station in the country, WQED, is in Pittsburgh:
