Debbie Wasserman Took One For The Team? What Team Is She Talking About?

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog?

Ousted DNC Chair: ‘Sometimes You Just Have To Take One For The Team’
Debbie Wasserman Schultz (D-FL) said that …

The Team

=============================
 What team is she talking about? The elite secret team at the DNC ? You mean that Bernie Sanders /his delegates are not part of the team?
I thought that there was one team and it is called the Democratic party and their goal is to find the best nominee and then let the people decide who they want for their presidential candidate???
No?
The days of kingmakers are over- No small group should decide who the nominee will be….. if that is the case why have a nomination/voting process? Why not just install the TEAM’S choice?
Oh, The Tangled Webs They Weave…
The ” team’s ” Queen of choice?

Wait for it to rain

In old western movies you would see cowboys lift the lid off the rain barrel and scoop up a drink of water– same idea !

You can boil water if you think necessary

The Case For Researching All Candidates Before Voting

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

Afer watching the DNC convention last night I thought

The ideal is Bernoe Sanders essentially Mr. Smith Goes To Washington

The choice they are serving up to us Hillary Clinton is a lukewarm Game Of Thrones

My questions are–

Why don’t the children of Libya matter ?  The removal of that Libya’s President and death  pushed Libya into chaos opening the doors for ISIS to enter the country yet Hillary  laughed about it later even though her support was crucial to that decision.

Why isn’t the content of Hillary’s emails being discussed by the media ?  The favoring of Hillary over Bernie for over a year?  There is a strong possibility that without this interference from the DNC that Bernie would be the nominee. The collusion between with the press and the DNC over articles that they wrote about Hillary and Bernie.

Why don’t the people of Iraq matter?  The vote for that war based on fake information and the subsequential removal of Iraq’s army opened the door for Al Qaeda to enter the country which is still dealing with suicide bombings that never took place before in Iraq.

These are all bad decisions yet Hillary never explains and acts as if she hasn’t learned any lessons  from these mistakes.

These and so many more are the reasons that Bernie Supporters are reluctant to vote for her.  It will be 4 more years of the same war mongering that lead to the refugee crisis and a 19 trillion dollar debt by wars that are not paid for by taxes.

Hillary and Bill did a great job economica lukewarm ally during their tenure in the Whitehouse, I saw direct improvements in the lives of citizens -dramatic ones -but the wars and the military industrial complex (the corps profiting from war) have to be reigned in.

I don’t see her doing that – Hillary’s speech is tonight….. let us see what she has to say.

PEACE

The Corporate Press And Drones Flying Over US Cities

” A Pale Green Mermaid Blog “

This drone flew over Bucks county  PA USA last night at 8:30 pm.  Why aren’t  the corp. media reporting on this?

830pmjuly23

I grew up in the era of Woodward and Bernstein, Karen Silkwood, Norma Rae, the China Syndrome, Rosa Parks, Watergate ect when the press was a pillar of democracy and did inform the public, when our democracy worked.

This post is about how democracy only works if its citizens demand that it works.

At anytime the drones flying over Bucks County and I imagine over other US cities can be armed  say by a trump Administration then we will be in the same boat as the middle east hearing reports of numerous civilian casualties but hey one bad guy was killed.

It is not that far-fetched.  If the press and others keep quiet about such activities and the public gives up complaining and accepts this kind of activity as normal it is an incremental slide in fascism and totalitarianism.

Terrorism is not the problem ,it is the reaction to terrorism giving up freedoms and attacking countries that did not attack us, that is the problem

“America will never be destroyed from the outside. If we falter and lose our freedoms, it will be because we destroyed ourselves.”

The solution!!  Look to the sky ask questions of your local state and national leaders –when you see any undemocratic action being taken by your government,

they are your representatives afterall they are only fellow citizens given the job to make democracy work .

 

So write go to meetings email! It will and can make a difference.  We are living in dangerous times so far as retaining our constitutional form of government.

Hitler was an artist and a normal candidate when he was first elected in Germany…..look at what can happen if citizens don’t take care of their country.

“Pink Houses”

There’s a black man with a black cat
Livin’ in a black neighborhood
He’s got an interstate
Runnin’ through his front yard
You know he thinks that he’s got it so good
And there’s a woman in the kitchen
Cleanin’ up the evenin’ slop
And he looks at her and says, hey darlin’
I can remember when you could stop a clockOh, but ain’t that America
For you and me
Ain’t that America
Something to see, baby
Ain’t that America
Home of the free, yeah
Little pink houses
For you and me
Oooh, yeah
For you and meWell, there’s a young man in a t-shirt
Listenin’ to a rockin’ rollin’ station
He’s got greasy hair, greasy smile
He says, Lord this must be my destination
‘Cause they told me when I was younger
Said boy, you’re gonna be president
But just like everything else
Those old crazy dreams
Just kinda came and wentOh, but ain’t that America
For you and me
Ain’t that America
Something to see, baby
Ain’t that America
Home of the free, yeah
Little pink houses
For you and me
Oooh, little baby
For you and me[Instrumental Interlude]Well, there’s people and more people
What do they know, know, know
Go to work in some high rise
And vacation down at the Gulf of Mexico
Ooh, yeah
And there’s winners and there’s losers
But they ain’t no big deal
‘Cause the simple man, baby
Pays for thrills
The bills the pills that kill

Oh, but ain’t that America
For you and me
Ain’t that America
Something to see, baby
Ain’t that America
Home of the free, yeah
Little pink houses
For you and me
Oooh
Ooooh, yeah…

Some relevant history—

The Boston Tea Party

Introduction

On 5 March 1770, Parliament rescinded the Townshend duties on four of the five commodities that had been taxed; the duty on tea remained in force. Outraged patriots sought to shore up sagging efforts to boycott tea by appealing to merchants (nonimportation) and the citizenry (nonconsumption). But people loved their tea, and their resolve weakened.

In the spring of 1773, the East India Company had a large amount of surplus tea on hand. To aid the failing company, thwart the smuggling of Dutch tea, and reassert its authority to levy taxes on the colonies, Parliament authorized the Tea Act on 10 May 1773. Tea sold in America would carry no duty for the East India Company; instead, the tea would be taxed at the point of entry in colonial ports. Consignees, or special agents, were appointed in Boston, New York City, Philadelphia, and Charleston to receive and sell the tea.


In the fall of 1773, as newspapers publish the particulars of the East India Company plan, colonists learn that the tea is coming. Protests soon circulate. Writing out of Philadelphia, “Scaevola” rebukes the tea agents, calling them political bombadiers. Refusing a summons to resign their commissions, Boston’s tea agents counter that they are the true sons of liberty. Demonstrating its decided disagreement, a patriot mob storms Richard Clarke’s King Street shop on 3 November.

Boston’s consignees petition the governor to safeguard the tea once it arrives, but with British forces confined to Castle William since the unfortunate events of the Boston Massacre, Hutchinson is powerless to oblige. The streets belong to the opposition.

On Sunday, 28 November, the Dartmouth, carrying 114 chests of tea, arrives in Boston Harbor. A meeting, open to all Bostonians and anyone from neighboring towns who chooses to attend (a group identified as the Body), is called at Faneuil Hall. When the crowd swells, it adjourns to Old South Meeting House. The Body speaks, demanding that the tea be returned, and the assembly appoints a watch of 25 men to guard Griffin’s Wharf.

From Philadelphia and New York, news arrives that anyone attempting to land the tea in those ports should beware an unwelcome visit. By 2 December, consignees have resigned in three port towns, and the taunt goes forth: Will you shrink at Boston?

By 15 December, the Eleanor and the Beaver, also both laden with tea, arrive at Griffin’s Wharf. The law is clear: if the duty on the Dartmouth’s tea is not paid by 17 December, the customs officer is authorized to seize the ship and its cargo. The governor, the ships’ owners, and the tea consignees all refuse to return the tea to England. Voting at a 16 December meeting at Old South, the Body resolves to prevent the East India tea from being landed, stored, sold, or consumed. At the conclusion of the meeting, the crowd streams out onto the street, chasing 30 to 60 men dressed as Indians down to Griffin’s Wharf. In what John Adams calls an intrepid “exertion of popular power,” the men proceed to dump 342 chests of tea into the sea.

Governor Hutchinson is incensed, calling the dumping of the tea high treason. Energized by their victory, boisterous patriots urge Bostonians,“keep up your courage.” When news of the event arrives there, New York celebrates Boston’s Indians, as does Philadelphia. Boston, once suspect, is now praised for its steadfast opposition to tyrannical English policies.
