    • The Lack of Belief In Good
      Are humans good, bad or neutral? It’s an old philosophical debate, and not just in the West. Confucius thought they were born neutral, for example, while the later Confucian Mencius felt they were good, noting that everyone who saw a child fall into a well would be horrified. Others, including many Confucians and the Christian church, with original sin, have […]

What’s going on? Day 2

[UPDATE]

Watch the Video!

It’s been a very busy day. I rushed to the meeting place in the park for the march and passed a phalanx of riot control police cocking their rubber bullet guns at a crowd of loud and active protestors (not our group). One of them turned to me as I was trying to get to my group, his gun pointed my way. “Um, I’m looking for the peaceful protest?”, he pointed me in the right direction and I scurried away as quickly as possible.

I was just in time for the march with 18 Million Voices and Rise Hillary Rise. As I was marching through Denver in my suffragist white, someone handed me a purple sash commemorating the Vote for Women. I was so happy and stepped it up shouting for Hillary at the top of my lungs. It was a great day and there were a lot of marchers. The line of Hillary signs seemed to increase as time went on. But afterwards, I still ran into women who were just a smidge too late. Damn, they’re punctual around here. Unfortunately, I didn’t have a chance to take any pictures. But that’s OK because there were dozens of reporters and photographers along the route. Darragh took a picture of me in my “uniform”. I’ll see if I can get it from her later.

LadyBoomerNYC attended some of hte women’s caucuses today and got to sit in on the one that Donna Brazile attended. She’ll fill us in a little later.

Echinopsia is presently at the Emily’s List Luncheon where Hillary is scheduled to speak. We hope to get a post from her later as well.

We are following up on a report from a superdelegate who was replaced last minute.and couldn’t get her credentials for the convention. Reports are still coming in of delegate intimidation. We also met two Texas delegates this afternoon who confirmed that they were told to submit their votes in writing to their state delegation by 4:00pm Wednesday and they were told that they should consider their votes final at that time before they get to the floor for the roll call vote. If you haven’t contacted your state attorneys general and demand that they no longer extend couresy to the DNC if the party refuses to play by tis own rules. No more taxpayer funded primaries if they aren’t going to count.

Ok, I will update as I can. There are many events and we are covering as many as we can.

The Newest DNC Twist to Screw Us Over

This is unconfirmed. I have only heard it second hand. Apparently, Delegates have been told that they must indicate their choice for President and Vice President in writing by 4:00pm Wednesday and turned over to their state chairman.

Now, what possible reason could there be for pressuring delegates to do this before the actual nomination and role call vote. Hmmmm, think, think, think….

Well, if you are planning to vote for Hillary, they can strong arm you and make your life miserable. And if you try to fake them out by *saying* you are going to vote for Obama, you will be assigned a bathroom monitor to make absolutely certain you don’t backslide. I can just imagine them chasing the hapless delegate around, waving the paper around, “You promised. You PROMISED!!!”, like persistent, bratty kids.

Your DNC at work. It wasn’t enough to rig the caucuses. They have to rig the convention as well. But isn’t it interesting that they feel they have to go to such lengths to keep Obama from being replaced by the more qualified candidate. The Superdelegates must be getting restless. Bwahahahahahahhhh!

(very crowded in here. Fun but wildly distracting. Just got a contingent of reinforcements from Pittsburgh. YEAH!!)

Update and clarification:
Still unconfirmed. Delegates have been calling us to say that their state chairmen have told them that their votes must be submitted in writing, some as early as 10am. The vote will be processed in the hotels. The votes will be final. The votes will tabulated before the roll call on the floor. In other words, it will be a sham roll call vote. Also, there is a report that a Hillary person infiltrated the Hillary delegates. This person was never onboard for Hillary who is misdirecting the delegates. This part is unclear to me but it appears the the delegates have been tampered with from the inside. The delegates that are affected are confused and demanding answers.

This is still unconfirmed. Will the networks follow up on this?
